TFcon Charlotte have added another guest to their line-up for the USA event in October - none other than the big lump of a dinobot himself, or his voice at least, Gregg Berger! Find out what the organisers have to say about the man behind Grimlock - and many more characters - below, and head here to book your tickets now.
We are happy to welcome the voice of Generation 1 Grimlock Gregg Berger to TFcon Charlotte. He also voiced Skyfire (Jetfire), Long Haul and Outback in the same series. He returned to the character of Grimlock for the Fall of Cybertron video game as well as the upcoming Transformers: Devastation.
Gregg will be taking part in Q&A panels and autograph sessions with the attendees of the world’s largest fan-run Transformers convention all weekend long.
It's been while since we had some news on Hot Toys' Optimus Prime Starscream edition figure. He was actually up on BBTS a year ago and is still on preorder. He is out in Hong Kong though and the snakas blog has some picutres of how this figure looks like in the box as well as some in hand images. Hot Toys themselves posted a TON of HD images of this new figure on their facebook page which you can see here. Some have been posted below as well. I know what you are thinking. True, it doesn't Transform, it isn't an outright G1 reference and 345$ is quite a bit of money to spend... but you can't deny how good he looks!
The secret is out. We received this message a few days ago:
TF_JW wrote:If they haven't started arriving already, your TFSS 3.0 figure #3 should show up very soon. So keep an eye out!
And now enough have received their figure to know that it is none other than: Serpent O.R.
Both Seibertronians Bounti76 and Durroth sent us some pictures of their newly received figure (Bounti76 even made a super cute unboxing). For those who ordered him, you should be getting him very soon unless you have him already.
Suddenly, a new gallery update appears! Today's Masterpiece subject hails from the first series after Generation One, Generation 2: Bumblebee! While not as shiny and blinded out as his precursor was, this figure fits right in for the G2 enthusiast along with Masterpiece G2 Sideswipe. In place of a Witwicky in an Exosuit, he instead comes with a jet pack accessory. If you're still in the fence on this guy, why not take the opportunity to take a look through our gallery?
Scotty P has some fun stuff for us. The elusive Generations Cyber series, of simplified voyager and leader sized Transformers toys featuring G1 characters, has shipped from Robot Kingdom (and has dissapeared from BBTS listings, curiouser and curiouser) and Sctotty P got his hands on them. He has provided us some pictures to show the scale as well as a list of all the articulation found on the figures. Enjoy!

This one may only interest me, but just wanted to show that while the "small" Bee from this line shares engineering with the upscaled BH Cyberverse Deluxe, they are definitely not the same mold retooled or further upscaled:
Lit of Articulation:
Cyber Commander Prime - Ball jointed head, shoulder rotation, shoulder swivel, elbow bend, hip swivel, hip rotation, ankle tilts
Cyber Commander Bumblebee - Ball jointed head, shoulder rotation, shoulder swivel, elbow bend, elbow rotation, hip swivel, hip rotation
Megatron - Head rotation, shoulder rotation, shoulder swivel, elbow bend, hip swivel, hip rotation, knees, ankle tilts
Grimlock - Head rotation (though very limited due to "collar" like piece around head), shoulder rotation, shoulder swivel, elbow bend, hip swivel, hip rotation, knees
Optimus Prime - Shoulder rotation, elbow bend, elbow rotation, hip swivel, hip rotation
Bumblebee - Ball jointed head, shoulder rotation, shoulder swivel, elbow bend, hip swivel, hip rotation
Starscream - Head rotation, shoulder rotation, shoulder swivel, elbow bend, hip swivel, hip rotation
Courtesy of a number of users, in particular Victor Wong, on the Hong Kong based Facebook group HK-TF, we have some in-package and in-hand images of the white and gold redeco of the Voyager Optimus Prime toy from the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars line: Battle Core Optimus! The toy is made to reflect the IDW comic appearance in the Combiner Wars event, and is intended to form Optimus Maximus with the upcoming Prowl, Ironhide, Mirage and Sunstreaker deluxes - check out the mirrored images below.
