It looks as though Toys"R"Us Japan may be getting even more exclusive Transformers Prime Arms Micron figures. Our fellow Transformers enthusiasts on the UK fansite Full Metal Hero are reporting a rumor that there will be exclusive versions of Orion Pax and Thundercracker. Battle Shield Optimus Prime has already been confirmed as a Toys"R"Us Japan exclusive and a solicitation from Singapore based hobby shop RoboRobo indicated another exclusive referred to as Gold Plated Gattling Bumblebee, likely a version of the Weaponizer mold. Just a rumor for the time being.

LA Times Hero Complex recently posted an article focusing on Universal Studios Hollywood's new Transformers: The Ride 3D in which director Michael Bay drops a little information about his next Transformers film. According to article Bay says the forth film will be his last before handing the franchise off to a new director. Take that with the normal dose of salt, as we've been hearing that since Transformers: ROTF. The fourth film is also said to feature character redesigns and a completely new cast. Click here to read the full article.
There’s plenty more Transformer action to come with a major new video game release, “Transformers: Fall of Cybertron,” due in August and another Bay movie in the works. (The director, by the way, says that the fourth film will include some redesign of the robots and an entirely new cast. He also said it will be his last and set the franchise up “for the next guy.”)
We have received information that some of the highly sought after Transformers Prime "First Edition" and Movie Trilogy figures will be seeing a release in the near future. The catch is these will be at a higher price point and only released in the Asian market. The Movie All Star case consists of all Ques, and the "First Edition" case will feature Arcee, Cliffjumper, and Vehicon.
Today we have several updates regarding 3rd party toy manufacturer Maketoys. The first is a sort of "drill" upgrade for Maketoys Giant. These appear to be a standard and phillips screwdriver tips for the combined mode of Giant. Although there has been no explanation on whether this is a future release or just for fun. They've also posted new color images of their next two-pack Dump Truck and Mobile Crane.
But that is not all for Giant, because MakeToy have updated their website to officially confirm the green Giant repaint the fandom was demanding, and just like some rumours stated it will be a full 6 figure gift set! You can read their message in English here or oyu can click here for the Japanese version.
Then there is a picture that surfaced on Maketoys.jp website. A silhouette of an easily recongnizeable behemoth, Computron. Will 2012 be the year of the Technobots? We have reported earlier, that TFC has worked up some sketches of the Technobots as well. Is the fandom ready for another combiner show down? Check out the image below or click here to view the previous reports on TFC's concept Computron.
We now have concept work for TFC Toys Technobot Scattershot. We brought you the other 4 members earlier this month. Actoys.net posted these two sketches from the team at TFC Toys. Is the two headed dragon a heavily stylized Hun Gurr or some other robot toy like their Star Q products? Obivously these are a long way off but interesting none the less. Check out the pics below or click to go to Actoys.net
Also posted on Planet Iacon's Facebook page today is a surprise image of Botcon 2012 Exclusive Shattered Glass Optimus Prime. Or so we assume based on the color scheme. This SG Prime is delivered via the Transformers Reveal the Shield G2 Prime. It has not been indicated of this will be an Exclusive add-on figure or this year's freebie. Check out the image below or click here to view Planet Iacon's Facebook page.
Some interesting Technobot concept sketches have been posted by Xiao Red (who always seems to have the inside track on TFC Toys info) over on ACToys. It appears third-party toy company TFC Toys may be considering the Technobots as their next Transformers related project. This would also be consistent with the hints they dropped on their facebook page about their next project featuring red and white on each figure. The concept sketches for Afterburner, Strafe, Lightspeed, and Nosecone are mirrored below. This should be treated as a rumor for the moment. As we all know by now third-party companies are notorious for teasing and starting projects that never see fruition.
Some information has come in pertaining to the MP-11s Sunstorm. The Takara/Tomy Sunstorm will be limited to a 1000 pieces for Japan and a larger scale release for Asia. No information on a western version at this time. This rare seeker will be packaged in the traditional black MP box and is set for July/August release date at 12000 yen ($150USD)! The Encore release of the Decepticon six changer, Sixshot, will also be packaged in a Movie MP styled box with a view window. It is reported to have a "premium leather material finish". Currently scheduled for a July 2012 launch date, it also has a 12000 yen ($150USD) price point.
Both figures will support the Takara collector coin giveaway that started with MP Rodimus.
It would seem the Movie Trilogy might truly be getting a reboot. With the vague references and loose vocabulary that implies a series reset, new comments from Josh Duhamel seem to reinforce the reboot position.
Josh Duhamel wrote:"I don't think anybody's doing it," Josh Duhamel told us last night at the launch party for Sony PlayStation's new PS Vita portable entertainment system. "I know Shia [LaBoeuf]'s not doing it. I don't think Tyrese or Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] or anybody else is doing it."
Obviously the next installment of the mega-successful Transformers Movie series is set for a June 2014 release. That leaves a lot of time for things to change. This early into the process, nothing is guaranteed. Duhamel added:
"Whenever these movies make that much money they're going to make as many as they can," he said. "[But] I haven't heard anything about it. They haven't called me."

Ofcourse, this video from ClevverMovies youtube channel states that the movie WILL be a straight up sequel, but not told through the eyes of Shia LeBeouf's character, Sam Witwicky. So new cast, same story? Again, this far out from production, with no story or scripts written, anything can change. These are preliminary reports.
