Game News: Star Saber arrives in "Transformers Earth Wars"

Transformers fans playing Space Ape's "Earth Wars" game were in for a treat tonight. If you duked it out alongside your Alliance, a prize offered in the current campaign is a crystal that unlocks the Autobot Star Saber! Seemingly based on his G1 persona, this version of the character also has a bit of IDW Publishing Ultra Magnus in him as he talks about lectures (which other Autobots find boring). The storyline also opens up a threat being set up by Deathsaurus! Check out the screenshots attached.

The Dinobots especially love Kup's war stories! Check out my special advance review of "Titans Return" Sergeant Kup with Flintlock!

Star Saber and Deathesaurus; the original Transformers, are by far the most popular in the Japanese culture. We asked Takara a bit about how they originated and what the reason was for them becoming so popular, here’s what they had to say:

Collectibles: Metal Park creates Transformers metal statues

Metal Park is a team of artists who recycle old metal junk into amazing works of art ranging from items that can sit on your desk to six foot tall statues. Often these are based on some existing property, among them are Transformers! Every year at the Bryant Park Winter Market in New York City Metal Park is one of the many retailers who set up for the holiday season. This year I snapped some photos of their Transformers based art.
