We have an update on the Prime 1 Studio series of highly detailed non transforming statues - namely, their Decepticon logician Shockwave replica, from the live-action Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Some new information is due soon, but for now, we have a suggestion of what the final product may look like. Check it out!
Emotionless, coldly logical, utterly ruthless... killing is all Shockwave lives for. - Optimus Prime.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon SHOCKWAVE will be available soon for preorder this month stay tuned!
For everyone living outside the US, Easter is synomymous with seasonal giant Kinder Surprise eggs found in all grocery and big box stores. The surprise in the eggs is usually region/country specific and while Italy had Robots in Diguise themed prizes in 2016, in 2017 it is the UK getting RID themed eggs and toys. These toys are different than the 2016 Italy ones and come with either Optimus or Bumblebee with a projectile weapon. A video of an unboxing can be found here, and screenshots were taken and copied below.
The eggs cost between £5 and £10 and Asda has them at three for £10. They have also been found at B&M by TFW member dacamper who took images of the box, which are also found below.
For those in the US wondering what this is all about and why you are specifically excluded, it's because these chocolate eggs which have a surprise inside are not FDA approved and selling them, importing them and possessing them is illegal. The potential fine is US$2,500 per egg "smuggled" into the US from neighbouring countries (ie Canada). For everyone else, and especially UK TF fans, I wish you a lot of chocolate Kinder goodness this season!
With Takara Tomy's Transformers Masterpiece MP-35 Grapple, instead, Hasbro Asia will be releasing a collectable diecast minifigure of Ultra Magnus, who also already appeared in the MP toyline. You can check out below the image courtesy of site sponsor Robot Kingdom!
One of the things we have yet to see with Takara Tomy Masterpiece Transformers MP-34 Cheetor / Cheetus is the Hasbro Asia added accessory to the pack. No longer the collector coin, as we know, we now have diecast minifigures of other Transformers characters in the MP line - and Cheetor includes the big bot himself, Optimus Primal! Check it out below, via Autobase Aichi.
Jada Toys brings to us a line of highly detailed non-transforming Transformers vehicles. There will be many different sizes of models as well as many different characters from the live action films.

We will share with you the latest developments on this line as they are released. Stay tuned!

Directly from the Javits Convention Center showroom floor at New York Toy Fair 2017, site owner Seibertron has posted a gallery of an extremely limited premium edition set of Transformers Monopoly. Winning Solutions, a premium games company that has collaborated with Hasbro in the past, is working with the Transformers brand team to produce a high-end, G1-themed edition of one of America's oldest board games. Previous premium games from Winning Solutions include popular games such as Monopoly, Clue and Scrabble.
At first glance, the set appears to be framed artwork - suitable for hanging thanks to a friction locking system - featuring a laser etched aluminum 'frame' with classic robotic detailing, and The Transformers: The Movie inspired art by Marcelo Matere. The frame unfolds to become players' money and property trays, revealing a sleek Monopoly board with touches designed to entice fans' sensibilities:
Traditional Monopoly properties represented by classic Transformers characters
Diecast player tokens, including: Megatron (Gun mode), Soundwave (Walkman mode), Starscream (Vehicle mode), Hot Rod (Vehicle mode), Grimlock (Dinosaur mode), Optimus Prime (vehicle mode), Matrix of Leadership, and Unicron (planet mode).
While many details are as of yet unconfirmed and subject to change, Winning Solutions projects an early summer 2017 release date, with a prospective run of 500 sets and suggested retail price of $499. Additionally, each set will likely be hand-numbered and possibly signed by artist Marcelo Matere.

A year later, and at the next Toy Fair in New York, we have another Comicave 1/22 scale collectable figure of Optimus Prime. The figures is a 50% die-cast metal, fully articulated figurine with interchangeable accessories, and LED light features in the eyes. At over 15 inches in height, it weighs close to 3.5 pounds (1.6 kg). Extendable joints at key points of the figure enable extensive posability and playability, as the official description tells us - so check it out in its gallery and below!
As we continue on with the vast amount of content from Toy Fair 2017, we bring to you a new gallery featuring Flame Toys' IDW Drift statue! Flame Toys based this statue on the first Drift mini-series version of the character after his transition from Deadlock. The character is shown to come with swords (cause, why wouldn't he?) as well as a cloak that he used on a couple of occasions. Check out some sample images below, and head to the full gallery to check out the rest of the images.
We knew from TFNation 2016 that Toys Alliance were working on a second giant non-transforming figure, after their Optimus Prime - as covered here - but we now also have the company's official Facebook page sending out another teaser for their upcoming MAS-02 Megatron! Check it out below.
We will have our own content and coverage of one of the other stragglers from Toy Fair New York 2017, but in the meantime, you can check out the write-up feature that Gizmodo did of the Winning Solutions Premium edition Transformers Monopoly! It's just a robot themed version of the traditional board game, but it does look as though it goes all out in doing so, take a look for yourselves below.
You can find a copy of Monopoly tailored to almost any interest, hobby, or pop culture property. The most popular board game in the world has been endlessly licensed, but this magnificent Transformers version from Winning Solutions raises the bar all the way to Cybertron.
Featuring original artwork inspired by the packaging of the ‘80s toy line, Transformers Monopoly replaces all of the game’s classic properties with Transformers characters. Where you’d normally find Park Place and Boardwalk, you’ll instead find Bumblebee and Optimus Prime as the game’s most valuable spots to buy up on the board. And players don’t Pass Go to collect $200, they instead “Roll Out.” Perfect.
Monopoly’s traditional houses and hotels are also gone in this version of the game. Players collect money to buy energon cubes instead which powers up the characters they’ve purchased to increase the ‘rent’ when other players land there.
Even the game’s money will have you wishing the US Mint created a similar design for the country’s official currency, with Autobot and Decepticon logos featured on each bill.
What really steals the show, though, are the game’s tokens. Hasbro recently reached out to the internet to help vote and decide what all the new tokens for the classic version of the game will look like. But had the options included Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Rodimus Prime, and the Allspark, which all come bundled with Transformers Monopoly, they would have easily swept the voting.
The game is a work of art, so Winning Solutions has designed the game board so that collectors can actually hang it on a wall if they want. Hinged aluminum panels surrounding the board can be folded in (or transformed) to cover everything except the Transformers artwork in the center. Is it a little over-the-top? Without a doubt. But when the game is finally available sometime around July 1 later this year, it’s going to come with a price tag somewhere around $500-$600, so the last thing you’d want to do is shove it back into a closet when you’re done playing.
