Thanks to T_soiya
on Twitter, we now have our first look at Takara's Transformers: Legends LG13 Megatron, which is the Generations Leader Megatron figure done up in a relatively similar, albeit a slightly
different, color scheme.
Notable differences include the lack of red on the inner arms, the plastic on the joints being cast in grey rather than red, having the orange, purple, and red chest detail paint apps removed, and also having red paint added to the sides of the torso.
Is this small amount of differences enough to get you to spring for the Japanese version of this figure? Let us know after the jump!Read Replies (0)

we have our first look at some of the characters who are being included in the third assortment of Transformers Tiny Titans. The series seems to be embracing all Transformers continuities, as we have seen from the previous assortments including the likes of Superion and Topspin alongside newcomers Thunderhoof or Quillfire - and the third assortment seems set to take this further, with not releases not only based on Generation 1 characters but also Beast Wars. Seen here are three of the upcoming figures, featuring Generation 1 Optimus Prime and Shockwave along with Beast Wars Megatron (yesssssss...)
Additionally, via Hasbro.com
we have a look at Fracture from Robots in Disguise.Read Replies (0)

TakaraTomy has updated their Youtube channel with a ton of new videos for the new Transformers Adventure line! Transformers Adventure is the Japanese counterpart to the new Robots In Disguise line. It not only features some exciting repaints from the new RID line, but also some repaints from past Transformer lines such as Animated, Age of Extinction and Generations. These new videos demonstrate the Transformations for each of these new toys and most are under a minute long.
We've mirrored the videos for Roadblock (Generations Scoop
repaint) and Junkheap (AOE Junkheap

Rovio; the creator of the successful Angry Birds franchise stated on Thursday
that the company has lost its revenue and operating profit during 2014. The profit has fallen a whopping 73% last year.
Regarding the matter, the status
of Angry Birds: Transformers was also a discussion point. After the first 6 months of release, the game is at the 262nd position on the iOS App Store (position on the Google Play Store is not revealed). This was compared to the position of the original Angry Birds game; which was at number #2 position 6 months after the release. Angry Birds: Stella which was also released last year has not done so well either.
Despite all of that, a new Angry Birds game (titled as Pigstruction) is in development.
We do not know what these statements mean with regards to the future of the Angry Birds: Transformers mobile game but it certainly doesn't seems to be a good one.Read Replies (0)

Couple of days ago TFW2005 sister site HISSTANK reported
that Hasbro has applied for several new G. I. Joe Trademarks including a trademark for a Joe brand related beverage. We speculated that this could very well be to revive the old G. I. Joe Survival Beverage series.
Today, fellow fan site Transformers At The Moon is reporting
that Hasbro has applied for yet another beverage related trademark and this time it's Transformers.
Transformers (United States Patent and Trademark Office ID: 86555393
)"Dairy-based beverages; vegetable-based food beverages; fruit-based food beverages; yogurt-based beverages; coconut-based beverages used as a milk substitute; milk beverages containing fruits; milk based beverages containing fruit juice; peanut-based food beverages; soy-based food beverage used as a milk substitute; nut and seed-based milks"Read Replies (0)
