Rumours are coming in the that Transformers Platinum Edition range will gain two new Year of the Horse exclusives for 2014 in the form of a Transformers Galaxy Force / Cybertron Supreme Starscream and potentially a Transformers Masterpiece 10 Convoy (Optimus Prime figure).
Toys R Us Cannada listing for Starscream - http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=23556916
The Optimus Prime / Convoy listing has been removed but did include the following wording.
The leader of the Autobots is back and more unstoppable than ever! Everyone will know that this mighty Year of the Horse Optimus Prime figure is the ultimate Autobot, because the Matrix of Leadership fits in his chest. He'll shred his Decepticon enemies with his Energon axe in robot mode, and flatten them in truck mode! Convert his trailer to a battle station with a maintenance dock, where you can store his ion cannon and Energon axe. Your Transformers adventures will be off the hook with this Optimus Prime figure!
We opened our 30th Anniversary "IDW Bumblebee" today to discover a quality control issue which we do not believe has been reported thus far. The figure has been assembled with his right shoulder joint on backwards which means that the figure becomes impossible to transform.
The fix is really simple, just take off the back, remove the piece and turn it around, then put him back together again. We are currently uploading a very short raw YouTube video to help highlight the issue which will be online soon.
Our recent Tranformers buying habit has not been great for QC, our MP Frenzy has two right hands, Jinbu had the normal QC issue, Bumblebee has this QC issue though none have been as bad as the state our Lazerback was in when we picked him up earlier in the year.

We have a wide range of different panels and workshops on each day so to experience everything that Auto Assembly 2013 has to offer you really will want a weekend pass for the event.

to take advantage of our great upgrade offer!
With the convention taking place in less than a month's time, there is no better time to register to be a part of this year's event. We are also pleased to announce that we have now EXTENDED the deadline for pre-booking tickets. Many people contacted us about the original 30th July deadline telling us that they didn't get paid until the beginning or end of the month so this made things difficult for them to book, especially as they were unsure if they could attend until then. As a result we have now extended pre-bookings until 1st August 2013.
However, if this payment deadline is still likely to be a problem for you but you still want to pre-register, please contact us as we may be able to assist you rather than leaving you in a position of having to but on-the-door tickets.
Auto Assembly 2013 is Europe's largest Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 9th - 11th August 2013 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out more including details of all the dealers attending, all of our guests and a full schedule for the weekend, visit the website at www.autoassembly.org.uk
Hope to see you all in August!

latimes.com have the scoop on the SDCC exclusive Transformers figures which are bound to leave some fans disappointed. This years offering see's three sets of figures. The first is a tribute set to Generation 1 with a release of "Titan Guardians action figures" which are non-transformable versions of G1 Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and Grimlock. Think ActionMaster but with less articulation. Next up is a Transformers Prime Beast Hunters offering in the form of "Shockwave's Lab". The set consists of Shockwave a legends class transparent Predaking and his "cloning chamber". Finally, the third release is the figure which has been expected for some time in the form of Titan Class Metroplex with two guns and chromed legs. Whether this release will be convince fans especially with the 3rd party Six-Gun set on the way remains to be seen.
