"Autobots, roll out! Mitmunk is excited to bring you our new line of official TRANSFORMERS printed apparel. We’re launching our new women’s and men’s long-sleeved shirts, vests, and leggings based on the Generation 1 Optimus and Megatron artwork. There will also be T-shirts featuring a range of Transformers from the original box art, quotes, and of course the iconic Autobot and Decepticon insignias.

Pre-order from our website starting Thursday, April 9 at 7:00 am Pacific Time to get in on the first print run. We’ll accept pre-orders until we reach the limit of what we can handle in one production run, or while supplies last, and go into production until we’re ready to accept the second round. The first 20 pre-orders will also come with a free t-shirt! The estimated completion time for the first print run is mid- to late-May (subject to change but we’ll update you along the way).

If you’re headed to Fan Expo Vancouver this weekend, you’ll be able to shop our new Transformers line first! Come visit us at Booth 714, April 3-5 at Vancouver Convention Centre."

Transformer Toy Sightings

TFW2005 Board member jru42287 has learned of some interesting new entries in the Toys R Us computer system within the US and has taken some photos for TFW2005.

"The first of these entries, with a retail value listed of $129.99, is a "Transformers MV4 Optimus Trailer Platinum Edition" which by the sounds of it is a Platinum Edition version of Age of Extinction Optimus Prime complete with trailer. An image is shown with the listing, showing a more detailed truck mode than we have seen so far with a Generation 1 inspired trailer, although the image might be a placeholder.

Second is another Platinum Series set, titled "Breakout Scene". This set curiously has a Generations Skids pictured with it in spite of being explicitly labelled as "TRA MV4", or Transformers Movie 4. The Skids is colored to look like the Sonic rally car, though may be a placeholder since he's a non-movie toy. The set is listed as $59.99 which implies there may be more to it than just this one Deluxe - although we may never know, since it is in "D" status, suggesting the set has been discontinued. This may mean it is not happening, or just that it is not yet fully confirmed.

Lastly there are two more sets of listings, one set for Transformers Age of Extinction Leaders and one set for Transformers Generations Leader class toys. Both sets of listings feature three toys listed - which in both cases covers the two known Leaders (Grimlock and Optimus Prime for Age of Extinction, Megatron and Jetfire for Generations). There's no information on who the third Leader for either line is, though, but rumors are that the third Age of Extinction Leader may be a reworked Dark of the Moon Leader Bumblebee."

Transformer Toy Sightings

Following on from the previous news story from NYCC which contained the preview trailer for season 3 of Transformers Prime which will contain the subtitle "Beast Hunters", we can bring you some preview images of the first Predacon toy, Predaking, thanks to TFW2005.

The images of the figure, which can be viewed after the jump, have been mirrored from TFW2005 as that website is currently serving malware and is unsafe for visitors until the admnistrators remove the infected files.  If you visit the website you will receive a warning in your browser regarding the malicious trojan software which has probably been uploaded as a result of a vunerability within the v-Bulletin platform which runs the website.  Once the site becomes available again you will be able to find the original images here, but until that time simply click on the heading of this news article in order to view the mirrored imges.

Predaking is the leader of the Predacon, a third group of Cybertronians who, according to the hints within the preview video as well as the background stand, are the "Decepticons ultimate weapon".  The toy of Predking is a homage to both the original Generation One Predacons, in terms of colour scheme, as well as Transformers Galaxy Force Flame Convoy (Transformers Cybertron Scourge).

The figure is only shown within his dragon form, though if you look closely you will see the shape of the head quite clearly.  We have enlarged one of the images to help highlight this which you can view below.
