Game News: Familiar faces coming to "Earth Wars"

For weeks now Space Ape has been hinting at new characters coming to "Earth Wars". Fans have been speculating as to the identities of these characters (one good, one evil) and now fans have confirmation on who they are thanks to the folks at Rogers & Cowan: Star Saber and Dezarus (aka Deathsaurus)! Check out the attached preview images for a sneak peek at these characters coming to the game in an upcoming event (not this weekend though). Both models appear heavily based on their G1 selves (much to the relief of many fans). What abilities will they bring to the game? Time will tell!

Toy News: Platinum Edition "Year of the Rooster" Optimus Prime official photos

Thanks to Walmart Canada fans now have their first good look at official photos of the upcoming "Platinum Edition Year of the Rooster" Optimus Prime figure. This is a re-release (with possible deco changes) of the "Hybrid Style" Optimus Prime released in Japan a few years ago. The figure is not in stock nor does it have a price listed but I would wager that it will easily be priced over $100 USD.

Here is the official description from the web site:
