TAV Stepper

Thanks to fellow board member, BattleUpSaber, we have a new pic of TAV Stepper!  This image was found on TF-TF’s Twitter Page, you can also see the image here. According to the description, the picture came from a catalog packaged with the toys, and that Stepper will use the TAV Jazz mold, feature a more G1 head sculpt, and will be packaged with a TAV Sideswipe.

So what do you think of this figure?

HobbyLink Japan revealed the two newest additions to the Prime 1 Studios Movie Masterline series, Age of Extinction Lockdown and Revenge of the Fallen Ironhide via their Facebook page. These pictures come courtesy of the Wonderfest 2015 Summer Event.

Lockdown is appropriately deadly looking with a presumptively swappable arm cannon, replaceable HUD and is accompanied by his faithful companion, Steeljaw.

Ironhide is simply, unconditionally MASSIVE and comes armed with his array of weaponry, including his famous cannons.

These full-sized statues are extreme high-end collectibles with an astounding amount of detail for a premium price. They are undeniably the definitive representations of these characters for anyone looking to add a holy grail to their collections.

For the faint of heart, Prime 1 Studios also has a sub-line of more affordable premium busts, featuring all of your favorite characters. During the show they revealed resin models for busts of Age of Extinction Optimus Prime and Galvatron.

Prices and release dates to be revealed later, but in the meantime, click through to see these pictures in all their glory and feel free to let us know what you think of this line of collectibles.
