2005 Boards member jru42287 has learned of some interesting new entries in the Toys R Us computer system.
The first of these entries, with a retail value listed of $129.99, is a "Transformers MV4 Optimus Trailer Platinum Edition" which by the sounds of it is a Platinum Edition version of Age of Extinction Optimus Prime complete with trailer. An image is shown with the listing, showing a more detailed truck mode than we have seen so far with a Generation 1 inspired trailer, although the image might be a placeholder.
Second is another Platinum Series set, titled "Breakout Scene". This set curiously has a Generations Skids pictured with it in spite of being explicitly labelled as "TRA MV4", or Transformers Movie 4. The Skids is colored to look like the Sonic rally car, though may be a placeholder since he's a non-movie toy. The set is listed as $59.99 which implies there may be more to it than just this one Deluxe - although we may never know, since it is in "D" status, suggesting the set has been discontinued. This may mean it is not happening, or just that it is not yet fully confirmed.
Lastly there are two more sets of listings, one set for Transformers Age of Extinction Leaders and one set for Transformers Generations Leader class toys. Both sets of listings feature three toys listed - which in both cases covers the two known Leaders (Grimlock and Optimus Prime for Age of Extinction, Megatron and Jetfire for Generations). There's no information on who the third Leader for either line is, though, but rumors are that the third Age of Extinction Leader may be a reworked Dark of the Moon Leader Bumblebee.Read Replies (0)

Our collecting community has been buzzing with the recent prototype images
of the highly anticipated MP-22 Ultra Magnus! Continuing the exciting news, we just received word from our friend and sponsor BigBadToyStore that the original price of this figure (which was slated at $279.99 this past year) has been reduced to only $189.99 (check out the preorder here
)! This price reduction is based on the 19,440 Yen retail price in Japan.
Although this is fantastic news for everyone's wallet, please be advised the price is still subject to change if the MSRP raises above the 19,440 Yen. The good news still stands though, we possibly can expect to see a final price much lower than we originally thought.
Be sure to continue the discussion in the Masterpiece Ultra Magnus thread here
and keep it locked on TFW2005 as we update you with any new reveals!Read Replies (0)

CERTAIN DEATH, HERE WE COME! MEGATRON assumes control of the quest to find the Knights of Cybertron-a quest that has never before been so urgent, so personal, and so likely to end in tears.

Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store
have been contacting people who have ordered Transformers Generations 2014 Wave 3 - the Crosscut, Rattrap and Tankor assortment - to advise them that Hasbro has cancelled the assortment in its current form.
Important thing to note, these toys will still be released, but spread over future assortments.
Rattrap and Tankor have already been solicited in a new assortment and we understand these two are still coming out as originally planned - Crosscut, however, has been delayed to a future assortment.
Hasbro has not offered an explanation for the change of assortment - but given the well-documented issues with the Skids mold having swapped hips and weak balljoints on the hips on its original release, it is possible that Crosscut has been pulled while Hasbro tightens up QC to make sure the issues that affected Skids do not affect his redeco.
Update: We have also learned
that Big Bad Toy Store has been asked to remove preorders for assortments containing Arcee and Chromia, as these toys have also been delayed from their original planned release.
