Via their Facebook page, Prime 1 Studios has shared images of an upcoming Premium Bust Series entry based on Brawn from the 2007 Transformers movie. The bust captures a lot of the upper body vehicle elements in great sharpness and detail, and makes an excellent representation of the character as he appeared in the movie before being killed by Bumblebee. This update does not present information regarding release date or price, but given the level of completion, we expect that to be revealed soon. Keep reading to see all the pictures!
Thanks to TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki and Twitter user @jitome-dan we have a great many photos of the just-released Cloud Shockwave, including a comparison to Whirl, and group shots with the other Cloud Decepticons and other Shockwaves! Shockwave may not work as well at evoking the character as Rodimus does, but you have to admit it's a nice looking deco, though maybe minus the clear pink claws.

Robot Kingdom has posted extensive photos of MP-10 Convoy Mode "Eva," the first and very likely only crossover figure between Evangelion and Transformers!

This is arguably the best item Cloud has produced so far, and it's making a great showing already! Click through to check out the photos.

Thanks to Randy at Allspark, we've got word that the first of the two third wave Transformers: Cloud figures is now shipping from TakaraTomy Mall. While no word of it has yet arisen, we can expect Shockwave to be on the way from eHobby soon as well. Since most of us will be relying on US retailers for these figures, you can look for Rodimus to likely arrive in the next few weeks.
TFW member SydneyY has taken time to give us a translation of Figure King Magazine's recent interview with TakaraTomy designer Hironori Kobayashi.

Keep reading to check out the translated interview!

The Allspark is reporting that an anonymous Wal-Mart employee has leaked a new batch of inventory listings. Among these are a group of new Deluxe and Legends figures featuring familiar Protectobot names, lending weight to long speculation that Defensor would join the Combiner Wars. The list also backs up additional fan theories of how some team members may be utilized, as well as giving us two possibly unrelated new items coming in 2015.
