For the first time since 2006, the first leg of the Unicron Trilogy is available on DVD. While the set is rather barebones, containing only the show itself as originally aired and no extras, Transformers Armada: The Complete Series represents space-efficiency and a decent value for those who want the show on their shelf.

Here is another video clip from the extremely amazing TOKYO TOY GUY Movie that was done by our good friend Yuji Ueda, who lives in Dubai. For the documentary film he made Yuji went all over the world to meet some of the most serious BATMAN Toy Collectors and in this clip we get to see when he went to New York City to visit our friend CHIP KIDD.
The video here shows some extremely rare BATMAN toys, Collectibles, and Original Comic Book Artwork. Speaking about the art, we get a chance to see some of the Japanese Manga art that was drawn by Jiro Kuwata. This was the inspiration for Chip Kidd's book, "Bat-Manga!: The Secret History of Batman in Japan" (Pantheon 2008).
You are about to see some incredible stuff here so get ready to start drooling! Hey, we warned you ;)
Thanks to a product sheet posted by Planet Iacon we're getting our first look at the Transformers Masterpiece Bumblebee prototype. The figure looks absolutely fantastic with lots of neat little features like the hide-able Autobot symbol and swappable expressions, a first for the MP cars. We also get confirmation that his car form is an officially licensed Volkswagen Beetle.
The biggest surprise is his pairing with a tiny MP version of adult Spike in the exosuit from 1986's Transformers the Movie. Spike is a real action figure and completely transformable. What's interesting is that Takara Tomy has been working mainly from the 1984 catalog for the MP line with few exceptions like the newly released G2 Sideswipe, Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime, and Soundblaster. Even more curious is that BB didn't have much of a presence in the TF cartoon after the movie despite having survived both the Decepticon invasion and Unicron's attack.
This is going to be a strong contender of Transformer of the year for 2014 when he's released later this year. I can't wait to see colored pics and what his other expression is. I'm also curious if we'll be getting an exosuited Daniel figure later on, perhaps when they come up with a repaint for BB.
I know I've talked a lot about the terrible winter we've been experiencing so I don't want to spend a lot of time on that. I'll just quickly say that I have a feeling I'll be pulling weeds from my garden this year while it's still covered in a foot of snow. If there's anything to look forward to it's the pile of superhero movies coming to theaters soon. I've only been to the movies once this year, to see see RoboCop which far exceeded my expectations. Soon it'll be all about Captain America: The Winter Soldier in only a few short weeks. My expectations are very high on that one, as they are with most Marvel movies. Then it's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past in May. It'll be nice to have an excuse to go to the movies again, but I can't say the lineup for the rest of the year is really getting my attention. Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers 4 and...?
Welcome to Tomopop LinkUP!
Today we're looking at:
See you after the jump!
Josh Perez has shared his coloring process on the fantastic two-page splash in Dark Cybertron Chapter 10, which will be published in More Than Meets The Eye #27 this week. He also shares some influences and cameos to watch out for in the margins! Preview image and a link to Perez's Tumblr after the jump- be warned, the contents of this splash will undoubtedly count as SPOILERS.
The Medicom Toy Blog gave me a nice little gallery to lust over this week, and of course it stars Ms. Ryuko Matoi from Kill la Kill. I'm so excited to get my hands on the Real Action Heroes Ryuko, but even more so after seeing it in action. What really blew my mind a bit was how poseable she is throughout the body. They showed an image of her bending backward while still standing, and it looked awesome!
Enough of me blabbing about it though, just check out the gallery here, then check out the Medicom Toy Blog for the rest of the photos.
And while "technically" March 8th was yesterday (here in Singapore), I will not let something as "trivial" as "timezones" deter me from wishing all the ladies out there a very Happy International Women's Day!
Funnily how, as I searched for art toys designed by women (for the photo above), I realized I may not necessarily have procured them based on being designed/created by "women" or gender-specific per se. For me personally I collect them based on aesthetics or what I connect with instead. Do YOU do that as well, my dear readers?
Standing proud and tall amidst a predominately male orientated scene, I salute you all - both designers/creators and customizers - for making the scene a lively and vibrant one!
Are there any specific female practitioners YOU would like to give credit to out there in our scene? Give a shout out in the comments section below!

Check out the final sculpt for "Kibunadon", designed by Teresa Chiba and sculpted by Makino-san of TTToys. The last we saw of this "fish kaiju" was when it won the "Kaiju Gals" design contest from Max Toy Co - as voted on by the public! Expect this to debut in April's Design Festa gallery in Tokyo.
And while I have been (only just recently) a "fan" of LEGO characters (thanks to bootlegs, sorry to admit), I've never really been a fan of the vehicles or houses (except for my excitement for The Simpsons' House), but this new upcoming Sandcrawler™ has my attention!
Made up of 3,296 Pieces with a SRP of US$299.99, I am intrigued to see the inside of the vehicle, last seen in Star Wars: A New Hope. And even thought we might have seen the bay where R2D2 and C3PO were at, the rest of the structure (which was even used as a building for 'Lucasfilm' in Singapore) remain a "mystery", until now!
Sized over 9” (24cm) high, 18” (48cm) long and 6” (16cm) wide, the Sandcrawler set includes 7 minifigures (Luke Skywalker, Uncle Owen, C-3PO, R2-D2, R2 unit, an R1-series Droid, Gonk Droid, R5-D4. a Treadwell Droid, and not forgetting 4 x Jawas), and will be available for sale directly through LEGO® beginning May 2014 via shop.LEGO.com, and LEGO® Stores.
Check out more pics via the LEGO Facebook.
"We are very happy and excited to show you these sneaky images of the Power5 Prototypes. Robotic Industries have sent these over to Lisa Rae Hansen who is now in the process of casting 25 of each of the 5 designs. These little 1 inch beauties are looking magnificent on all counts." (via fugi.me)These will be cast in 5 colors of Red, White, Blue, Hot Pink and Military Green. 5 of each colour will be produced, and they will be available at ToyCon UK. Shown here include additional turnaround drawings (previously posted) from the 5 picked winners; Alto, Uncle Absinth, Toy Terror, Brett Cloke and Streets of Beige.
"I think it was Jon's suggestion - basically we put a bag of uncut flesh Real x Nibbler parts and a bag of uncut Rampage parts (Ugly Unicorns, Gachapon Goblins, Cyclops Dinos etc) together, then split the whole lot in two. I put this set of five together then sent them back to Tokyo for Jon to paint. Meanwhile Jon was making and painting his own batch of hybrids (keep an eye on his instagram @jmrampage for those).. Huge thanks to Jon for getting the vintage feel I wanted on these 100% dead on. It's going to be tough to part with them on the 12th.. "Blogged by The Tarantulas, for his upcoming "Fishtank Castle LIVE II" happening at ToyCon UK circa April 12th. Here are some more IG-snaps to share - *EXCITEMENT*
Several oddities – 2014 started with the continuation of the case code lettering of 2013 but with the new card designation DISNEY WORLD OF CARS. But now, after running through the rest of the alphabet – CASE A seems to have arrived at retail … and it’s back to the more correct “Disney • Pixar […]
