Titans Return Brainstorm from Blurr Actually Happening?

Brainstorm IITransformersVia Weibo: Seemingly legit Brainstorm vehicle mode made from remold of previously seen Titans Return Blurr image which may mean a whole list of rumored toys is legit.

I was more than a little surprised to see this, but considering the clip at which Hasbro is rereleasing characters as new toys it's more and more plausible. Numerous other toys for this line have been officially announced and seemingly leaked, including: Alpha Trion, Blurr, Skullcruncher Skullsmasher, Hardhead, Mindwipe, Fortress Maximus, Soundwave, Blaster, Powermaster Optimus Prime, Astrotrain, Sentinel Prime, Scourge, and Galvatron. And it wouldn't stun me at all if we had another reveal before you even read this, or if there was a hoax in there, or some such.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneFactotum 90Xbox fans, it's time to try Factotum 90. Microsoft says:

"You're in deep space and something's collided with the ship. Main power is offline and you're trapped. It's lucky you have access to this terminal. It's a little old but with these two robots and some clever thinking you might be able to get power back online and save the day. Control two walker robots and puzzle your way through 30 levels to restore power, reactivate the life support and solve the mystery of the collision."

Also new: Assassin's Creed Chronicles - Trilogy, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 4, Arslan: The Warriors Of Legend (With Bonus), Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition, and Unravel.

Transformers Pre-Toy Fair Leaks

ParadronTransformersVia TFormers.com: Collectors Club Transformers Figure Subscription Service 5 Preview First Look. Not content to wait until the club license expires, the Paradron Medic and a double-pretender Optimus Prime (out of Oilmaster) are on deck. Wow! Dagnabbit, these look fun - but as you know, they're competing for your dollars with other, equally neat, and significantly cheaper sets from Hasbro.

For example: Combiner Wars Computron Partial Box Art Now In Color! You can see Afterburner, part of a redecorated Scattershot, and Lightspeed. The set is as of yet unconfirmed, but it stands to reason if G2 Superion, G2 Menasor, G2 Bruticus, and Victorion do well we could see more - granted, we're probably also approaching the logical conclusion of the group sets we can do without more new molds, but the sky is the limit if they want to squeeze out more redecorated figures like G2 flavors of Alpha Bravo or a US release of Groove.

As it stands right now, we have reason to expect at least 5 more US combiner teams (or sets) before the end of the year - possibly more, as nobody is talking G2 Defensor yet. If you aren't already saving some cash for what may be a solid $1,000 year just for US Hasbro Transformers toys - not including convention or subscription items - you might be in for a financial sucker punch by the time Fall comes around.

Dreamworks Teases More Voltron

Go LionTVVia Nerdist: Official VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER Logo Revealed (Exclusive). Well, there ya go.

You might remember a show called Voltron Force from 2011, but probably not - the show fizzled and Mattel's announcement of the toy license went nowhere. The show should be on Netflix, so you can hope the toy line was already sold but I sure as heck haven't seen anything for it yet in my travels.

Fake Beast Wars Neo Unicron Coming

UnicronTransformersVia TFW2005: Garatron 3rd Party Unicron Revealed! Normally I don't like to cover third-party stuff, but this one is certainly odd in that it's basically an unofficial release of an official design from the Internet age.

There have been numerous knock-offs and original designs based on Hasbro concepts, but this may be the first time one of these toy firms opted to make a toy based on an unproduced concept from the Beast era. This was sort of the stuff of legends, with much gnashing of teeth back in the late 1990s when it looked like we might never actually get a toy Unicron in our collections. Now that we've had several, this is more of a novelty than anything else - but if you've always wanted one, it looks pretty close to some of those original models. You might want one, especially as it forms a (more or less) sphere rather than a half-planet blob of some sort. The firing rockets are gone, and lights were added, but the similarities are striking.

Hasbro x Mattel Vore Fantasy

HasMatToysVia many: Hasbro, Mattel Said to Have Held Talks About Possible Merger.

This isn't the first time either - Mattel made a play for the Rhode Island toy giant in the 1990s. This time, Hasbro approached Mattel, who themselves just gobbled up Mega Brands (Mega Bloks) and Hit Entertainment (Thomas the Tank Engine) in recent years. Both Hasbro's and Mattel's stocks went up on this rumor, which as of my writing this remains a rumor.
