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!
Next we have some Kre-O! Not much was shown, though we have some nice looks at upcoming Micro-Changers and the Grimlock Unleashed set. The Kre-O gallery can be viewed here!
Finally, we come to the Loyal Subjects, makers of the super adorable Super Deformed Transformers. The Loyal Subjects will be featuring new three-packs available at San Diego Comic Con 2014: Shattered Glass Dinobots, Autobot Cars, and Decepticon Coneheads! 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! Their gallery can be viewed here.

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

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.
They're at walgreens.

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.
As well as any info on the release dates of prowl and sunstorm?
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".
