Transformers designer Shogo Hasui has posted a new image of the Transformers MP-17 Masterpiece Prowl figure on his Twitter page. The image pays homage to the Generation 1 cartoon. When you see the image you will know exactly what I am referring too. Plus this gives us another image of this awesome release! Check out the image of the Transformers MP-17 Masterpiece Prowl that is slated to be released later this year.
CM's Corp has posted new images of the Excel Suit with Spike and Daniel action figures that pay homage to the G1 characters, We first saw the figure at Wonderfest in just the suit mode; here we get a view of the suit in its transformed alternate vehicle mode with Daniel inside. I am thrilled to see this and I cannot wait to get one. You can check out the original image we posted a while back that showed the suit mode.

Toys R Us Canada revealed a Platinum Edition Chinese New Year Transformer; Year of the Horse Optimus Prime. Not much info is available at the moment and no images are online. The suggested retail price will be 139.99 (Canadian). Here is a brief description from the site: The leader of the Autobots is back and more unstoppable than ever! Everyone will know that this mighty Year of the Horse Optimus Prime figure is the ultimate Autobot, because the Matrix of Leadership fits in his chest. He'll shred his Decepticon enemies with his Energon axe in robot mode, and flatten them in truck mode! Convert his trailer to a battle station with a maintenance dock, where you can store his ion cannon and Energon axe. Your Transformers adventures will be off the hook with this Optimus Prime figure! Looks like he will come with Matrix Energon axe trailer which converts to a battle station. Once we get more info we will post it up.
Amiami posted something really interesting from Wonderfest 2013 via their Facebook page. I know a few people that will die when this news hits them. Scorpinok stands roughly the same height as Fortress Maximus, if not a bit taller. Weapons include Scorponok's rifle and Zarak Shield. Judging from the picture it seems as though there will be alternate head parts for a toy / Headmasters style head or a Rebirth style head. Not sure if it transforms just yet so hopefully we will find out soon enough.
Next up from Hasbro is the mighty Transformers line. I have never been a major collector of the brand but I am slowly converting to the Transformers world of toys. Check out the gallery!
