To round off the BotCon current and soon-to-be-released galleries, we have some miscellaneous product to show off: Loyal Subjects, Construct-Bots, Kre-O, and Rescue Bots!

Not much new for Rescue Bots. However, Dinobots Bumblebee, Boulder, Chase, and a smaller version of Optimus Primal were on the scene! View the gallery for the Rescue Bots here!

The Shattered Glass Dinobots set will include Grimlock, Snarl, and Slag; the Autobot Cars set will feature Generation 2 Sideswipe, Smokescreen, and a translucent Mirage (imitating an invisible effect); and the Decepticon Coneheads will feature translucent versions of, you guessed it, Ramjet, Thrust, and Dirge!

Was Roadbuster packing that much heat last time we saw him? DAMN, that is a lot of guns. Looking forward to his arrival!

I love Windblade's jet mode. It's one of the sexiest Transformers jet modes I've ever seen. I also love how she's almost completely jet black (see what I did there :P?) in jet mode but transforms into this beautiful red bot mode. She's one of the most creative and impressive offerings I've seen in the CHUG line for quite some time and for a new character, they did a lot to sell me on her and of course the great fiction developed by IDW for her doesn't hurt either.

It's actually the packaging of the SDCC 2014 Dinobots exclusive, which can be converted into Mount St. Hillary and the Ark. ;)

It looks like Bumblebee may have a flip-down battle mask, which would make it even easier to retool into Stinger.

Is it just me, or does that Loyal Subjects Ramjet look like a Klansman?

Anyone else notice that Sunstorm's box uses the old Seeker mold? I wonder how long Hasbro has been working on him? That's two figures at BotCon where the figure on the package isn't the same as the figure in it (Nightbeat being the other). Strange stuff happening at Hasbro.

damnit i was hoping the prices would go down but i guess not, looks like ill be limiting my transformer purchases even more and hoping for sales & coupons. Any word on if the 4th wave of kreo will ever be released? Ive been keeping an eye on TRU & target but neither have had any kreo blind packs in months. Only one i want is rodimus but at this rate ill probably never find one.

Lockdown looks like crap, but Bumblebee's engineering looks sweet. Can't wait to see the figure in Stinger colors/parts!

That sky bite figure looks really sweet. Saving my money away from those painfully disappointing AoE figures and saving it for those beautiful masterpieces, especially that grimlock! I've been trying hard to get him but just end up getting no luck! I know it might be hard to believe but frankly I never owned a masterpiece and after looking at masterpieces online, it just changed my world! (Not really) but does anyone have any tips on how to get masterpieces easier? As well as any info on the release dates of prowl and sunstorm?

If you are desperate for Masterpieces, online shopping will be your best friend. If you don't live in Japan, most Masterpieces are only available online, with American releases being exclusive to Toys "R" Us these days. Last year was Soundwave (with friends) and Acid Storm (who is still shelf-warming as we speak), the year before Optimus Prime (with all his accessories) and Thundercracker. Soundwave and Optimus Prime particularly were insanely difficult to find, and both of them go for buttloads of money online.

Long story short: online shopping is your best bet.

It's weird, actually. Sunstorm's placard says "NOW", yet we've yet to have any confirmed sightings. On the flip side, Grimlock's placard says "July 2014", and we've had several reports of him showing up already. Prowl's placard says "August 2014".

they named the wolf steeljaw well thats depressing, anyone snag a pic of it cause id like to see what the robot mode looks like. But not to much there really peeked my interest, was hoping for some more obscure characters getting brought back not more redos of what we've seen from the past few years. I am glad to see that the generations will retain the comics & adding cards for the legends, hopefully they dont use that as an excuse to jack prices up again. I have a hard time justifying the deluxes as it is and refuse to pay $10 for the legends, any higher and ill have to shop strictly off clearance and discount stores.
