Transformers-Rescue-Bots-350x223 Zap2it have updated their schedule with details of the next three episodes of Transformers Rescue Bots season 3. While as with previous updates, their details all just show today's date for the airing, we are of the view that these are going to air on the first three Saturdays of December.

Perfect Effect Leonidas (Lio Convoy) - New Prototype Images

Posted on 11-19-2014 at 09:01 AM by Matty under 3rd Party Unlicensed
LioConvoy Third Party / Independent group Perfect Effect just dropped an awesome update containing new images of their Leonidas prototype! Leonidas is Perfect Effect's attempt at homaging the Beast Wars II character Lio Convoy. The prototype images show off the bulk of the figure, range of articulation in the arms (such as gripping the sword on the figure's hip), a side view of its beast mode, and a size comparison with MP-10, which shows Leonidas nearly eye to eye with Masterpiece Optimus Prime!

No pricing or release info was provided, only the message of "coming soon." We'll keep you updated as we learn more! Make the jump to discuss!

3FBB666E-F585-4D6C-BD4A-EBCFD3D3B5D5_zpsxvxyytqo Following up on our recently reported sighting of the Platinum Edition Optimus Prime with Sideswipe two-pack, we have some more sightings to report as well as some better news on the pricing for these exclusives. TFW2005 cdavid3 board member has reported seeing the Optimus Prime and Grimlock leader class two pack at the Toys 'R Us in Times Square, with a price point of $127.99.

Along with this news we also received a tip from TFW2005 member HBCoffin that the Platinum two-pack with Optimus Prime and Sideswipe is listed on the Toys 'R Us website for a listed price of $169.99, a little easier to swallow than the first reported price of $196.99. We can hope that price for the Prime and Grimlock two-pack will also see a decrease.
