Following the Licensing Expo 2015 news, Star designer Philipp Plein has sent us a Press Release detailing the new partnership with Hasbro‘s Transformers Franchise.

“TRANSFORMERS, as one of Hasbro‘s most iconic franchises of this century, cars, airplanes and helicopters instantly turn into action heroes. In the everlasting battle between good and evil, the AUTOBOTS are on a mission to rescue the world from the DECEPTICONS. The fascination of the TRANSFORMERS brand, brought to life through animated series, comics, toys and movie theater heroes, are now expanding with a unique TRANSFORMERS brand fashion collection. This collection was designed by top designer, Philipp Plein, and under License by Hasbro, and will be offering TRANSFORMERS branded shirts for men at his luxury stores starting in the second half of June.

As the rockstar among German fashion designers, Phillip Plein, who is known from his presence at Fashion Week in Milan, is predestined to bring the TRANSFORMERS brand into the fashion and lifestyle world. For the designer, the TRANSFORMERS branded men´s pre-fall 2015 collection embodies the spirit of the action hero. He combines eccentric materials with great attention to detail and extravagant applications. The OPTIMUS PRIME character T-Shirt is definitely one of the collection’s eye-catchers. The powerful leader of the AUTOBOTS shines in an edition that features glittering strass stones in various black, gray and silver shades against either a white or black background.”

We’ve got a great new gallery of a toy from the Age of Extinction line that never left Japan to share with you! Courtesy of TFW2005 member Russian fan, we have a look at AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime.

Armor Knight Optimus Prime is to the regular Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime what Buster Optimus Prime was to the Revenge of the Fallen Leader Optimus Prime – a toy that takes the base Leader toy we got at mass retail and then improves on it, with remolded elements, new accessories, and a premium level of paint to become the definitive version. For Armor Knight Optimus Prime, this meant a lot of remolding including the chest, arms and head, the latter of which was also reworked to include a gimmick to allow Optimus’ face to switch from a faceplate head to an unmasked one. The paint is also a step up and really helps to put this one over. If you’ve not got a toy of this new Movie Optimus Prime, right now, this is the definitive item.

Check out Russian Fan’s photos of this gorgeous piece at the link below, including some shots of the toy with the Beelzeboss die-cast Sword of Justice – I’m told that the weight of metal does unfortunately make it hard for the toy to hold, but it looks truly boss in the robot’s hands.

20150602_123120_zpsrcbkwtan

Well folks, it looks like the long-awaited Age of Extinction Power Battlers Wave 4 is finally making it to Ross in its entirety. We reported yesterday that the Vehicon from the assortment had been found in at least one Ross store, and acting on that tip, TFW2005 member Optimus Clyde found a couple of High Octane Bumblebee from the Power Battlers series at two different Ross stores in Dallas, TX. He also reports a further sighting of the Vehicon.

However, it seems unlikely that Junkheap is also out in the wild, as some people report spotting toys such as Galvatron and Snarl, who were in a variant case that included the spotted Vehicon and Bumblebee, but not Junkheap.

Happy hunting, one and all!

Vehicon-Card_1416758840

Thanks to TFW2005 boards member Alterator for reporting a purchase of an Age of Extinction Power Battlers Vehicon! This retail find, a first for US stores, was found at a local Ross in Central Florida for the grand total of $5.99.

At least one other sighting was reported on a Transformers Facebook group, Transformers Addicts. We’re not sure if this is the same sighting or a different one, but either way we hope those that are looking for this Vehicon get their hands on one.
