Takara-Tomy's Hisashi Yuki has shared a set of new images of the upcoming Convoy and Rattle figures from the new Japanese Transformers line, Transformers Legends, on his TFYuki Twitter Account
The duo of Maximals, who are being released under their original Japanese names as opposed to the western names Optimus Primal and Rattrap, are redecos of the 10th anniversary reissue of Beast Wars Ultra class Optimus Primal and the new Transformers Generations Rattrap. Both feature new decos compared to their previous releases - and Rattle is perhaps a bit more show accurate than Hasbro's Rattrap.

Mobage has announced some major changes to the Transformers: Legends mobile game.
First up is a new Deck Management feature. This will allow the user to create multiple decks and deploy appropriate decks to suit the Episode.
Next is a new Weapon Abilities and Specialization Bonus. From next episode onwards, new weapon card will be available with new abilities. The abilities include:
HEALING CLUSTER I: This weapon ability has a chance to heal your allies.
ARMOR PIERCING: This weapon ability has a chance to negate all of an opponents defense.
HEROIC CHARGE I: This weapon ability has a chance to bolster your allies stats.In addition to these new weapon abilities, TRANSFORMERS character cards now gain a damage bonus against opposing Specializations.
The three types of Specializations include the normal melee and ranged as well as a 3rd new type, Heavy. In battle, Heavy specializations will do more damage to Ranged Specializations, Ranged will do more damage to Melee, and Melee will do more damage to Heavy.
And Finally... Battle Chest; an upgrade to the existing Space Bridge and changes the way you obtain the cards.
Mobage states: Think of Battle Chest like a big box of 100 cards. You can get either 1 card, 10 cards, or 25 cards from the box. Once you get that card, it’s no longer in that Battle Chest. You can see what cards you’ve collected from the Battle Chest already by clicking the CARD LIST button.

An interesting piece of news was just dropped to us by friend and sponsor TFsource: it looks like a slightly retooled Lost Age (Age of Extinction) Optimus Prime leader class mold is coming this November.
Details are still a little unclear about this retooled leader class figure from Takara, which you can see here in our Resources section
for reference, but here's what we know so far provided by TFsource while we wait for more information to drop. This Japan version of Optimus Prime features an updated head sculpt, and remolded body parts, as well as the face mask can be removed easily. There are bonus weapons, and the color is not black as shown but features metallic paint apps and/or chromed parts and attention to detail. It is assumed to be the regular Optimus Color scheme. Note: Details are subject to change, updated images to come.
You can currently preorder the Ultimate Power Mode Optimus Prime from TFsource
; we'll be sure to update you as more of our sponsors carry this item.

A double-whammy of news comes to us with regards to the performance of Transformers Age of Extinction. There is a lot of excited buzz over both the movie and director Michael Bay hitting some key milestones.
Transformers: Age of Extinction, it has been reported, has overtaken James Cameron's Avatar to become the biggest grossing movie in China, ever! This figure is slightly disputed - some sources claim the milestone was hit on Sunday, while the tally others are keeping suggests the movie came close but has not quite surpassed Avatar at that time. In either case, it is an incredible achievement for the fourth live-action big screen outing of the Transformers! Credit for this news item goes to Hollywood Reporter
.Transformers: Age of Extinction now the highest grossing movie ever in China
Transformers: Age of Extinction continues to perform strongly at the US box office and has earned an impressive $180,166,140 as of July 7th, 2014. Box Office Mojo
also reports that international takings add up to $412,000,000, with more than half of that figure coming from China. As you might see from their chart, though, some figures have not yet been updated for the past weekend, and crucially some of the European opening weekends, such as the UK, are not yet represented. Of note is that Deadline
reports Transformers: Age of Extinction has the third greatest opening in Korea, but that the movie there is performing slightly less strongly than Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
