Hasbro Pulse has updated with a teaser image of the figures to be revealed at NYCC! With "many robots set to be revealed" promised, the silhouettes show what appears to be the previously-leaked Titan Wars Leader Class Blaster - but who are those other two figures with him? Is the one on the right a Headmaster as it seems, or is it a trick of the posing? We'll find out later this week, but for now keep reading to see it for yourself and ponder!

Hisashi Yuki of TakaraTomy continues his quest to promote upcoming Transformers releases, and today we get the first in-package photos of this month's Legends Series figures, LG15 Nightbird Shadow & LG16 Slipstream! Sporting package art by Hayato Sakamoto, there is a 99.999999999% chance these remolds of Arcee and Windblade will end up being Japan exclusives. Keep reading to see the images up close!
With little time remaining before the game is released across the various platforms, the Transformers Game Facebook is cranking out the promo materials. Most recently we've gotten some concept art for the Decepticon generic ground troops, collectively the Battlechargers - one type based on the Generations Wheeljack body (like the Collectors Club exclusives) and another being a simplified version of Blitzwing. We also have nice art of Shockwave in robot and gun modes. Click through and check it all out!
Very shortly after a testshot appeared alerting us to its existence, Warrior Class Megatronus has been found at a Toys R Us in Reno, Nevada. Its packaging identifies it as an exclusive in the Clash Of The Transformers branding, but what's interesting is it features a different head sculpt than the testshot, sporting a full battle mask. Megatronus was thought to be part of a Warrior assortment also containing Fracture and recolors of Optimus and Bumblebee, and that may well still be the case, using the testshot's unmasked face to distinguish versions.

Finally tonight, Captured Prey has taken extra photos of the Demolishor-headed testshot of Combiner Wars Onslaught, giving us much better looks at the head sculpt. This copy retains the Bruticus combiner head, though there's no certainty that would be the case for an actual production copy, perhaps still leaving a mystery for this version of the toy. Click through to take a look at all the new photos!
Captured Prey has gotten hold of one of the early testshot leaks of Deluxe Brawl, coming soon in the Deluxe Combaticon wave. While we've seen pictures of this in color, both hand-painted and as an on-card production sample now, these photos give us a little closer look, plus show off the arm mode for the first time. Keep reading to check out all the photos!
Captured Prey's Facebook has been updated with photos of the three Combiner Wars testshots they've recently received. First up from these is Scattorshot, the Silverbolt retool revealed during SDCC to a ...less than warm reception, especially when it was announced the other Technobots were not coming with. In any event, the testshot comes off a fair bit better looking than the sample at SDCC, so click through to have a look at it!
This weekend at Roll Out Roll Call, Fun Publications had hand painted versions of next year's subscription figures Bludgeon and Impactor on display, showing them in their planned decos with at least early castings of their new head sculpts. Differences should of course be expected before the final versions. The Club also released a new mockup image of Ramjet, next year's membership incentive figure, explaining that instructions would be provided for the newly devised way of moving the head to accommodate the crest in vehicle mode. Keep reading and check out the mirrored images.

In a keynote at MIP Junior 2015, Hasbro's Stephen Davis touched on many topics related to the company's media franchises. In the process of answering questions, he revealed that the recently concluded writers room did not just plan Transformers 5, but that they worked to plot Transformers movies for the next ten years, which he suggests will take the property through an eighth film. He also specifically mentions Michael Bay's involvement once again, to no one's particular surprise. Video of the event has been posted to Youtube, so click through to have a look!
BotCon 2016 is early next year, which is probably why we're already getting previews of the boxset and figures for the con. The theme has been revealed as "Dawn of the Predacus," and the first figure revealed is a new version of Beast Wars-era Ravage based on the Combiner Wars Breakdown mold. The Club promises five all-new headsculpts and figures based on the Combiner Wars molds - fingers crossed to see if they can get uses of the Alpha Bravo mold into double digits!

TFW2005 has posted images of a Hasbro brochure from the MIP Junior Conference in Europe - the venue where we recently discovered the "on offer" status of RID's second season. The brochure gives current/projected episode counts for the properties Hasbro is shopping around this season... and RID's episode count is given as 45. This would mean a nineteen episode second season, and cast serious doubts on the series' original plan of 3x26-episode seasons. Read on for more details!

Here's one that slipped past us this morning. Takara's official Transformers Twitter account tweeted out a photo showing off the first five Unite Warriors sets. UW-01-03 and 05 are seen as closed boxes with art on display, including the newly revealed Convoy Grand Prime box with some excellent art finding a creative way to hide both the proportion issues of the design and be visually distinct from Menasor's art. Devastator is also present, but unpackaged, perhaps meaning no sample was ready to be shown for the big guy just yet. Click through to take a look!
Yesterday's spotlight on Grimlock wasn't the end of coverage for the Dinobot commander, today the Transformers Game Facebook page has their own regular gameplay demo video posted, showing some stages and attacks not present in the "cinematic trailer" yesterday. We have screenshots and an embed for that, plus a collection of several lineart pieces for Soundwave, the cassettes, and Megatron's tank mode. Keep reading to see it all!
