[Update: Earlier version of this story incorrectly labeled this as the S.H. MonsterArts release of 2014 Godzilla. It has since been edited. -Andres]
Godzilla has been a great reason for the S.H. MonsterArts line. Multiple versions have come and gone, and with a new film on the horizon, why not go back and give them some new reasons (aka repaints) to buy them all over again. Enter Bandai with their new version of the previously-released Burning Godzilla, now sans flames.
As with other SHM releases, there will be more than enough articulation, with more than 24 points on the main body, not to mention the fully-articulated tail. If you want to have Godzilla in your pose of choice, this will be the one to get. Also, you will be getting some fire with this release, so you can definitely get some displays out of it.
If you didn't like the look of Burning but like 'Zilla, this is the one for you. It is pretty much the same, and with that one being a more than decent release, this one should be as well. You won't be able to get this until July, well after the buzz from 2014 as worn off and you've bought just about every version that would have been released by that point. When it is released though, it will cost you ¥6,800. Bluefin Distro should be getting this stateside as usual, so expect that info to come shortly.

I’m a lucky mom (for many reasons), but in the context of this post I’m lucky because my kids love taking baths. It’s one less thing to fight about. However, the reason they don’t mind cleaning up is that it’s fun. It’s not the getting clean part they enjoy (Lena has tried to make me [...]
[Update: We're now getting our first look at Optimus Prime thanks to an image in TV Kids magazine. Optimus looks a lot like his Animated incarnation crossed with the Cybertron series version. If this truly is a continuation of Prime then it should be interesting to see how they bring back Optimus. The new image also includes a new look at Bumblebee, check it out in the gallery]
Today Hasbro announced the next Transformers cartoon series to come along in 2015 for the HUB Network, but they're so early into this they haven't even given it a proper name yet. What we do know is that it's a sequel to Transformers Prime and takes place years after that series ended and stars Bumblebee as a new Autobot team leader. If you've seen the Prime finale in Predacons Rising then you know (spoilers ahead) Megatron has given up his pursuits of conquest, the Decepticons are disbanded with some joining the Autobots (Knock Out), and the Predacons were left to themselves on Cybertron. Most likely the series will involve the Autobots going ofter Decepticon resistance groups, but it's anyone's guess.
Unlike the all CG visuals of the previous series, the new series will feature CG characters on hand painted (not digitally painted?) backgrounds. This will likely look similar to what we saw in the Transforemrs Energon and Cybertron series some 10 years ago. So far the only transformer confirmed for the new series is Bumblebee who looks like a cross between his Prime design and the Transformers Animated style of art.
We can probably expect the toys to be debuted at Toy Fair 2015 next February, though maybe they'll throw us a bone at BotCon in a couple months. Bumblebee will certainly turn into a car of some sort, but judging from the art it's hard to tell if he'll even have wheels, which may be the case depending on how far into the future we're talking. One of the goals they're aiming for with this series is to make something that both kids and adults (particularly parents) will enjoy so it's very likely they'll follow the same method they're using for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. Expect them to do several very simple toys for the kids along side more complex figures suitable for collectors.
Follow the jump to see the pull press release including some of the new and returning staff and cast members.
A new update from Shogo Hasui of the Takara Tomy Transformers design team shows how Bumblebee stacks up against fellow Masterpiece, Prowl. If the MP Autobot cars up until now are considered the equivalent to a Voyager class figure then Bumblebee looks to be about the same size as a Deluxe figure. Of course despite his size he'll have a much more complex transformation and the articulated hands that are a standard of the line. While the bot mode is in scale the car mode certainly wont be, but the MP line is no stranger to scale issues just like most Transformers lines.
He also posted some updated images of Spike in his Exo Suit. He promises that Spike will be fully transformable without needing to replace parts; a true part of the Masterpiece line. Spike will be one of the smallest MP figures alongside Soundwave's tapes.

Hasbro Toy Shop has once again rolled out their popular 20% off and free shipping promo code good for an entire order. Entering the code FRIENDS14 from now until April 7 will get you a big discount on nearly everything in the store. I used it to get a few of the latest Transformers to hit the site and saved US$3 on each Deluxe figure. It's a great way to do some army building on some Star Wars Black series figures or growing your My Little Pony collection.

PRESS RELEASE: "Spanish artists Javier Jimenez and Okokume join forces in a show that will be held at Tetera y Kiwi in Granada, Spain. The show will feature both toys and illustrations made by the two artists, and the opening is scheduled for Friday 28th at 20:00, with a live painting session starting a little bit earlier, at 19:30 for those who wanna see some action. Javier Jimenez will be releasing two customs of his resin figure Don Antler at the show.
If you happen to be around, make sure you come by to say hi! And if you can't make it to the opening but have plans of visiting Granada soon, don't worry because the show won't be wrapped up until the 23rd of April."
And while the event has since launched, we have snaps of the location to share (thanks to Elisabeth Castro Martínez), and as well you are to check out for updates on the Facebook events page. Here's a closer look of Javier's Don Antler resin figures:
