Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, -WonkoTheSane-, has let us know that Flame Toys have announced a new entry into their Kuro Kara Kuri line, Black Star Saber! This new non-transformable high end figure was announced through Flame Toys social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter).
Take a look at this new figure below:
This isn't the first time that Star Saber has donned a Decepticon symbol and a new sinister paint job, his Robot masters release also recieved a similar redeco (along with Victory Leo) so that he could infiltrate the Decepticons in the accompanying fiction.
No release dates have been put forward, and neither has a price, but we'll keep you informed on any as they are given.
What do you think of this new look for Star Saber? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Prime 1 Studios has given us some fantastic live action figures over the years, with highly detailed and very large statues representing our favorite on-screen heroes covering a wide range of characters from the Movie-verse. And to celebrate 8 years of producing these statues, they have revealed their newest offering for all to see: Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime!
Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime is a statue of giant proportions. Among his impressive and imposing presence is the fact that he stands 29 inches tall, so right up there with the Haslab Unicron in terms of size. And he certainly contains more detail and a truly impressive paint job. He also features a plethora of display options, which include different hands, arms, weapons, and more so you can customize him and up and make him look downright awesome.
While we don't have a release date or a price yet (though the statue will be expensive as past ones have been), we do have a bunch of nice images for the upcoming statue for you. We will share some below, and you can follow the above link to view the full gallery.
Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
Thanks to regular YouTube reviewer PrimeVsPrime, we have a nice video review of Studio Series 48, a Universal Studios exclusive redeco of Dark of the Moon Leader Class Megatron! This "As Seen In Parks" version of the Decepticon leader recolors and repaints the Studio Series 34 figure in gunmetal gray and as PrimeVsPrime notes, shows off some of the molded detail of the figure better. This figure does not, unfortunately, include Megatron's cloak, or the mini figure of Igor, as he's meant to better represent Megatron's appearance at the Universal Studios theme park Transformers ride. Check out the review below, and let us know if you plan on (or already have) picking up this figure in some manner.
According to the website GSMarena, we have news that Chinese phone maker iQOO will be releasing a Transformers themed mobile phone in China on June 1st, in collaboration with Hasbro. The themed version of iQOO'S 3 5G phone will be packaged in a special box stamped with the Autobot logo. It will also come with a protective case and charger carrying the same logo and theme, and comes preloaded with interactive interfaces, and Transformers-themed icons and wallpapers. For the techier among us, there are two versions, one with 12GB and the other with 128GB. Additionally, it uses iQOO's Android 10 based interface.
While the phone is set to be released only for the Chinese market, it does make a cool addition to the growing list of Transformers-branded merchandise. No price has been announced, though their regular version of the 3 5G runs 3,798 Chinese Yuan, which is currently about $532 USD.
Preternia on Twitter posted images of more upcoming toys part of the My Little Pony crossover series. We have My Little Prime which is a pony in Optimus Prime colours as well as Morphin Pink Pony, who has Mighty Morphin Power Ranger Pink Ranger colours.
It seems to just be one character from each franchise, so it's not really a full fledged Transformers My Little Pony crossover, just a fun one off. We do not have many details about these releases yet, aside form the fact that Amazon will be carrying them in some countries.
For those of you who are interested, Seibertronian WonkoTheSane has given us a heads up on a great deal at Gamestop's website. Their listing for the G1 Optimus Prime model kit is available to preorder for only $16.99, which is a savings of nearly 60% off the usual $40 MSRP of these figures. For those of you unfamiliar with Flame Toys figures, they're officially licensed model kits that you assemble yourself. They're highly poseable, and in general, tend to be more stylized than you'll find with regular transforming toys. Click the link above, or any of the pictures below to be taken to the preorder page.
Hallmark makes sure to have a Transformers G1 toy styled ornament every year for fans to add to their tree. This year it is Jazz. It's pretty cool to see Jazz since this does define him as the G1 mainstay that he is, regardless of his absence in the MP line for the past 20 years of its existence.
You will find an image below along with all the info we have on the product thanks to a listing on The Digital Dreambook.
Artist: Orville Wilson
Released: 2020 (Ornament Premiere)
Retail Price: $17.99 USA
Dimensions: 2.9" w. x 3.7" h. x 1.9" d.
Thanks to Seibertronian fonziechavez we have word that the next two Generations Selects Seacons, Kraken (Seawing) and Lobclaw (Nautilator) are now currently available for order on Hasbro Pulse! While it's common knowledge that Pulse had delayed shipping the figures people had preordered, it seems as though once they finally did arrive, they've had additional figures to put up for sale, which is great if you missed out on the limited preorder period. Below is photo proof of fonziechavez' order.
Additionally, please click on a picture of either figure to be taken to their order page and add these two highly anticipated figures to your collection!
