Takara’s Transformers Classic line has already brought us fine, quality collector’s pieces that have inspired both awe and nostalgia. And now offerings from the Masterpiece series are definite must-have figures for serious, adult collectors, especially those with a fondness for now-vintage incarnations of the original Transformers.
Peep this 12-inch deluxe toy, the ultimate Masterpiece figure yet! The Ultra Magnus MP-22 cab utilizes the MP-10 mold and has a fully functioning and transforming trailer that forms the robot with armor, just like the G1 toy! Own the chief lieutenant of Optimus Prime in all of his futuristic, robotic, shape-shifting glory.
Ultra Magnus is more comfortable as a soldier than as a leader, but that’s kind of what we like about him.
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
OPTIMUS MAXIMUS is the latest release from Transformers’ CYBERVERSE collection. A massive 12” figure, he makes an impressive addition to any TF fan’s collection.

The ongoing court battle between Asus and Hasbro might be a little surreal at times, but Hasbro, which holds trademarks on the term “transformer,” got some bad news today. A US district court judge has ruled that Hasbro could not stop Asus from making and selling an Android tablet called the Transformer Prime as the case continues winding its way to trial.
Asus released its first Transformer tablet in the spring of 2011, but it was not until the company put out the follow up Transformer Prime, that Hasbro went all decepticon. Hasbro began airing an animated series in late 2010 called, you guessed it, Transformers Prime. The toy maker claimed in court that consumers would be confused, thinking that the Asus tablet was part of the Hasbro line of products. That might not be as completely outlandish as it sounds on the face of it; Hasbro has, in the past, allowed its Transformers logo to appear on mice, USB drives, and other electronic products.
The judge was unwilling to grant Hasbro the preliminary injunction that would have stopped Asus from selling the device until the case was settled. In the decision, the judge used several justifications including the accuracy of the name. The Asus Transformer products “transform” into laptops with the aid of a keyboard dock. Additionally, Hasbro may have simply waited too long to act, thus weakening its claim of ongoing harm to its brand.
Hasbro played up the positives in the case thus far, pointing out that the judge did acknowledge the strength of the Transformers trademark in general. One last bit of juicy data from the courtroom, Asus revealed in filings that it has only moved around 80,000 Transformer Prime tablets since the device was released in January.
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!
