Back in the “pre-Dark of the Moon days” Transformers fans with good eyes spotted something above the skies of Chicago on a TV Spot. Many speculated it being the Planet Cybertron. Sure enough, at the Power Of The Primes campaign by Wal*mart
a new image confirmed the theory.
Artist Ken Christiansen revealed today via his blog
the entire image of Transformers 3 Cybertron used by Hasbro for promotional purposes."Not totally accurate with how it appeared in the film - but it was for Hasbro's toy marketing, and I think it works as a pretty cool toy version of movie Cybertron."“This is how it appeared in stores, (I only ever saw it in Walmarts) cropped with about only 1/3 of the full image showing. Below is the full version.”Read Replies (0)

When it was unveiled at Botcon 2012, Hasbro's release of Masterpiece Convoy Version 2 as Masterpiece Optimus Prime
created a lot of excitement among fans. This awesome new rendition of Optimus Prime in the Masterpiece series would be available in the US as a Toys R Us Exclusive! And he'd have his trailer!
At the time, there was no news on release windows or pricing, but now we can relay some good news from Griffin of the Australian Transformers site Ozformers
- Masterpiece Optimus Prime is coming to Australia in October 2012, with a price of AU$150. As Griffin rightly observes, this probably means a similar release timescale for the US - and factoring in the usual price inflation for Australia, it's probably coming with a pricetag of $100 for the US.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available to us.Read Replies (0)

Our very own Protoman provides us with yet another look of some upcoming BTSToys products. This time, we have a preview of the future BTSToys
redeco of the BTS-05 Tremor & Frequency set. This set is named "Yin & Yang", and are apparently part of a sub-group dubbed "Workaholics", which could allude to another sub-group of construction robots due to the similar color schemes.
These figures are exclusive to our site sponsor, TFSource.com, and are available for preorder
. Check out Protoman's review below!Read Replies (0)
