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.

TAV TRU deco Ez Prime 01

Japanese toy blogger Alfes2010 has posted on his blog HigeKumaToy (ひげひげな、おもちゃの日常) images of the Japan Exclusive EZ Collection Toys “R” Us Prime. This is the legend size figure that you can get with a 3000 yen purchase as part of a campaign by TakaraTomy and Toys”R”Us Japan. (more details on that campaign can be found in our earlier report here)

The Toys”R”Us Prime is a repaint of legend size Transformers RID Optimus Prime figure that features a green right shoulder with Geoffrey the Giraffe, a pink left shoulder with a Toys”R”Us logo sticker, and small stars on the legs mimicking the Toys”R”Us mascot’s giraffe motif.

While this deco is probably not for everyone, it certainly is a unique collector’s item in the spectrum of Transformers Exclusives. You can check out some of the mirrored images below, or head to Alfes2010’s blog post for the full gallery

Rescue Bots Heatwave Ambulance Robot

Remember the Rescue Bots Optimus Prime Tow Truck Amazon exclusive we reported on not too long ago? It seems that Amazon has a second exclusive Rescue Bots figure.

Introducing the Rescue Bots Ambulance Heatwave, a reuse of the Rescue Bots Medix figure with a new head sculpt. This ambulance Heatwave seems to have borrowed his deco from the Transformers Movie Ratchet. He’s available now on Amazon, at a price of $14.99.
