Courtesy of e-Hobby we have some updated official images of Takara Tomy's upcoming Transformers Go! Gekisomaru, Hisashimaru, and Sensuimaru otherwise known as the Swordbot Shinobi Team. These images give us our best looks to date of the trio including nice up close shots of the figure's faces. The team can combine in three different configurations to form a larger robot.

Here's another interesting listing from eBay seller lena81822, what appears to be our first look at the Platinum Edition Transformers Fall of Cybertron Voyager Grimlock. Back during Toy Fair 2013 we were told by Hasbro representatives that we could expect a Platinum Edition set featuring a redeco of Transformers Generations Voyager Grimlock and Bruticus. We've mirrored the images from the auction below, along with some comparison images of Takara Tomy's TG-19 Grimlock. Note the differences in the gold and lack of red on this figures abdomen among other deco differences.
An auction has surfaced on eBayfrom seller lena81822 that claims to be a 2013 reissue of the Classics Voyager Jetfire mold from Takara Tomy. The figure pictured in the auction does differ slightly from the Henkei version, and sports Decepticon symbols on his wings, but an Autobot symbol on his chest. This seller has proven quite reliable in the past, and many of the original Classics molds have been cranked out for the Asian market over the past year or so. Time will tell if this is legit or not.
