There are bonus accessory sets, pins, and also may have Glyos compatibility - the way it's written, it seems that they're working on it. The modest enterprise is already 50% funded so odds are it's going to come to pass. Shipping is estimated for September.

Transformers Devastator in Germany?

TransformersTransformersVia German Toy Fair: Combiner Wars Devastator Photo. For various reasons I'm going with "alleged," because you've probably seen more footage of Bigfoot than this toy.

There's a bigger picture, but that's all you're going to see - some green, some purple, and a dude in front of it. This item has not yet been confirmed by anybody, but this image is making the rounds and odds are the rest of the image will show up pretty soon.

Transformers Fan Vote Open, Legends Rodimus Revealed

TransformersToo MuchThe Transformers Official App has been updated with the first round of fan voting - you can pick alt modes.

The good news is you get a first peek at Hot Spot and Groove's alt modes. The bad news is it's because that's what you're voting for - 3 different existing bodies. Will the limbs be new? Or all repaints? We have no idea yet, but start voting.

Also noteworthy, Legends Rodimus and Legends Skywarp were revealed on Hasbro's German site. While both "rumored," this is the first we've seen of the pair. Which probably means we'll see a few more reveals prior to Toy Fair.

New Zelda Hats

NintendoHatVia NCS: TOYS Zelda no Densetsu: Kamigami no Triforce 2 Link & Ravio Boshi. These are Ravio and Link hats from the 3DS A Link Between Worlds game. NCS says:

"Don a Link or Ravio cap for the next Comic-Con or gaming convention and draw envious stares and desirous glares from the rabble in their raggedy homemade wearables that are a shadow of the official versions from Furyu. The caps measure 30cm across or 11.81" which should fit most human heads. Preorders are welcome to ship in late December 2014."

I've been sitting on games and hardware to register, so I'll be doing that now.

Transformers News - Slingshot Coming to Japan

TransformersTransformersVia Planet Iacon on Facebook: New Transformers Unite Warriors Superion.

There are a few deco changes, but the most significant one is the appearance of Slingshot instead of Alpha Bravo. There are also white hands and feet for the combined mode. Or, you can just get the US one for presumably a fraction of the price, but we'll see.
