Website Planet Iacon has posted some screengrabs of the upcoming Asian Transformer release Gaia Unicron in all of his… glory? Robot mode looks nice and Unicron-y, but what the heck is his alt mode? It looks like he was melted into a puddle! The images also show off his combination gimmick with Optimus Prime and [...]
It’s always a good day when you see in package pics. That means that toys are closer and closer to being in your cold, clammy, robot deprived hands. What you see here is Thundertron and Ultra Magnus, who will make up the wave 4 Powerizers of the Transformers Prime line. I personally think these two [...]
What a weekend for sightings, both for collectors and kids alike. News first broke on Saturday that Prime Revealer wave 5 had been sighted at a Walmart in Waverly, Iowa (?!). Interestingly, Sergeant Kup is still being listed at Ironhide in the Walmart computer system, which could be a clue as to why the figure [...]
Time to get out your handkerchief, Transformers fans, as we take a look at the “What you’ll never own unless you get expensive imports” August issue of Dengeki Hobby magazine out of Japan. Shown off in this issue: Transformers Prime Gaia Unicron, Ironhide, and more microns, then Transformers Generations EX Jet Master and Combat Master, [...]
If you’re looking to feed your addiction of small, game-enabled robots, than you may just need to get up from your chair and head off to the store, because the most recent wave of Bot Shot Launchers have been spotted at a Warminster, PA Walmart. This is the wave that includes both Starscream and Ironhide, [...]
Transformers fans have long asked for bases for their transformers, both good and evil, to inhabit. WIth the Transformers Prime line, we are getting our wish, not just in the form of the Starhammer ship that Wheeljack pilots but also the Energon Drills the Decepticons use to mine their precious energy source. Now, you can [...]
When searching for toys, sometimes it’s best to be armed. Now, we’re not talking about weapons, but knowledge. Sometimes that knowledge comes in the form of when your favorite stocker works, or when the truck comes in, or DPCI numbers. Or, in this case, the item number. Documents found hanging at Toys R Us today [...]
Been disappointed lately in visiting your local Walmart? Feel like the toy supply has all but dried up? Well, relief may be coming in the form of a fall reset for the toy section due to be implemented this week. The biggest changes are usually a shuffling of all the aisles, making you have to [...]
Check out our first exclusive video review of a highly anticipated Transformers Arms Micron Figure, Jet Vehicon.
In news that is guaranteed to make some of our readers, both male and female, “Squee!” in delight, Walmarts across the nation are running a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic endcap promotion to show off the new Royal Wedding line of ponies, which includes the long awaited Wedding Castle playset.

I received a great package yesterday courtesy of Amazon… my new Leonardo figure from the new Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line. I apologize for the crappy pictures, I just snapped a few with my iPad on my kitchen counter to show you a little bit of what you can expect with this [...]
If anything, Transformers fans love combiners. Big robots that join together to make even bigger robots are a crowd pleasure for sure. So, what do you get when you combine (see what I did there?) that with pure, unadulterated, nostalgia? You get G2 Bruticus, who’s neon, 90′s inspired deco harkens back to the early 90′s [...]
TakaraTomy put up product pages today for both Swerve and Airachnid, thus ending the mystery of just who Swerve would be: an Autobot repaint of the Breakdown mold! Airachnid comes with an Arms Micron partner that turns into a set of claws and Swerve’s turns into a spinning saw. If you are interested in either [...]
One of my favorite Transformers of all time is about to be re-released……in Asia. If you were a Transformers fan in the 80′s, you know what a big deal triple changers were; robots that transformed into two different vehicle modes and back to a robot. Imagine our surprise when Sixshot showed up and could turn [...]
According to reports from people at SDCC 2012, not only does Hasbro have no plans for Breakdown, but they also let slip that they have no plans to bring Gaia Unicron to our shores either. You remember Unicron, right? The god of evil and destruction in the Transformers universe, the very same one that, according [...]
