Decepticon leader MEGATRON is the latest addition to the amazing Transformers Prime Dark Energon Voyager Class (that’s a mouthful!). Check him out and read all about him:
Each of these translucent figures is the result of exposure to Dark Energon, which twists the mind and powers the body, eventually corrupting and destroying the user. With the Decepticons trying to use the Dark Energon to take over earth, Optimus Prime and the other Autobots are forced to expose themselves to it, so that they are able to take on the Decepticons on their own terms. Will they be able to defeat Megatron and his crew in time for Ratchet to reverse the process, flush the Dark Energon from their systems and save them from a horrid fate?
Translucent figures show the effects of Dark Energon infusion – Unique paint schemes of fan-favorite characters – Autobots and Decepticons have taken on new faction logos: Autobot Dark Energon Defenders and Dark Energon Decepticons

Okay, so Derpy isn’t her official name, but it’s probably what you’ve been calling her if you’re a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And now she’s finally been given the honour of an official figure by the folks at Hasbro, who released her as an exclusive at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con. Take a look:
You can grab her now, but be quick about it! She was the first items to sell out at Hasbro’s SDCC booth, so she won’t last long here!

Occasionally, your toy collection ends up needing a little context. It’s hard to keep Darth Vader looking quite as cool when he’s standing in front of your family photos, glowering grimly at your grandmother. Same with Spider-Man, getting ready to climb up a plain white wall, headed nowhere.
Fortunately, Sideshow knows that and wants to help you set up a much cooler backdrop for your G.I. Joe figures, at least. Check out the Pit Command Center:
The Pit Command Center 12-inch Figure Environment features:
* Intelligence Relay Transmission Module – Intelligence submission and relay station for teams in the field.
* CENTCOM Interface Station – Data transmission from various world governments, filtered through CENTCOM and dispatched to the JOE team.
* PIT Security Module – One of many security modules keeping tabs on the PIT’s perimeter as well as data transmission security.
* Raised vented computer platform – Platform allowing for unique layouts and display options
* Satellite Locator Video Display – Translucent pop up display transmission detainling COBRA’s whereabouts
* Drop Location Video Display – Translucent pop up display pinpointing exact location of the satellite recovery team

A battle for the ages! Based on their appearance in TRANSFORMERS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE and STARSCREAM arrive in this awesome 2-pack (also featuring some humans, but who cares when the robots in disguise are on the scene?).
The figures themselves are about 6 inches tall, can fully transform and come packaged with 3 full-length Transformers Prime episodes, meaning you can both catch up with the adventures or reenact them!

Fans of Transformers Prime can snag this great 6-inch figure based on the show and featured as one of San Diego Comic Con 2011′s signature EXCLUSIVE items. It’s a 6-inch tall rendering of Optimus Prime, featuring an amazing premium deco that’s unique to the figure and gives a great dramatic flair, sleek and metallic. Beyond the awesome transforming figure, though, this is one collectible where the package might actually be just as awesome. Called “The Matrix of Leadership”, the box converts into a wearable piece!
