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!
I think Hasbro is trying to kill us. So much new stuff is about to hit and for once I am torn. Do I go for the New Transformers OR do I go for New Marvel Universe (never can find then in the store though). Don't forget about Star Wars....
We have next weeks IDW release list and it looks sharp. New trades, hardcovers and of course new books. GI JOE fans should e pleased and so will the Transformer fans. One thing I am looking forward too is the Judge Dredd hardcover. Take a peek and remember to hit up your shop this coming Wednesday.

So, what are looking forward to? Hasbro will be releasing a ton of product soon. New Star Wars Black will be hitting (both 3 3/4 and 6"), new GI JOE Retaliation figures, new Transformers and new Marvel Universe. I know it's been a while but the drought is almost over. I know I cannot wait for some of this product and I know my wallet will be burning. We will definitely try and get you, the readers, the most up-to-date reviews and news as possible.
This all came from Botcon 2013 and we had to share this info. The more I see these Transformers the more I want them. Hasbro has been knocking these out of the park and there is more to come!
Oh heck yeah!! This has been the Transformer I have been waiting for! Now there is a catch, it's not actually up just yet BUT we have the page saved and so can you. July 18th is the day and we have the link.
Some big news is coming out from Botcon 2013 and we had to share some. One thing that caught my eye was the announcement of the pending Predaking reissue! This is excellent news for Tfans. We mirrored some images from Transformers.com so please, check out their coverage!
