The HasLab Victory Saber project is almost a week old with over 5,300 backers to date! Now thanks to the official Transformers Facebook page has been updated with news that a grey model of the Victory Saber set will be on display at FAN EXPO Boston at booth 721! They also posted a whole bunch of new images giving us an alternative (and updated) look at the figures.
In a surprise reveal (among many nowadays) Amazon has posted two listings for Cyber Battalion two packs. The Cyber Battalion was a sub-series of Generations figures released a few years ago that were based on G1 "Evergreen" style designs featuring classic characters such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Starscream. It looks like a few of these figures will be returning in the form of two packs in Selects style packaging.
One of the more unique interpretations of Optimus Prime is the new Optimus Prime Jumbo Jet Wing Racer Playset! Now listed on Amazon and Walmart's sites, this figure features a large Optimus Prime who transforms into a Jumbo Jet along with a small Bumblebee figure! Interestingly, the aesthetics of this figure firmly put it in the Rescue Bots world, but the packaging sports a Transformers logo devoid of any Rescue Bots branding. Check out the official product information and images below:
Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong!

While most Fossilizers have sided with the Predacons, Dracodon is one of the few that has chosen to fight alongside the heroic Maximals! Check out my review and gallery of Core Class Dracodon.
Rumors have swirled for months that Target would be carrying another Transformers exclusive following the recent release of T-Wrecks. Following the theme of "red" characters being released as Target exclusives, the next one will be Road Rage! Target has posted its listing for the figure but it is not yet available for pre-order.
Back in June, photos of Dinobot Adventures toys appeared online featuring redecos of Rescue Bots Dinobot-style figures as new versions of the classic Dinobots. Somewhere between June and now Hasbro has posted product listings for these figures to their web site including product descriptions. We also have the official name of this sub-line of figures: "Dinobot Strikers"! These figures are listed with an MSRP of $4.99 each.
