Transformers News and Reviews
Generations
That special time of year is quickly approaching again. Toy Fair 2016 is happening as always in New York, beginning with Hasbro's fan media event on Saturday, February 13th. But with everything Hasbro has already shown us via NYCC and a special conference call in November, what is there to be revealed next month? How much more could there be for us to see that hasn't already been shown to us, especially since Combiner Wars is now shifting to the sidelines and Titans Return hasn't even begun yet? Keep reading to find out some of what we think we might see newly revealed!
Collectors Club
As promised some while back, the newest TFCC magazine issue contains a preview for the fifth iteration of the Transformers Figure Subscription Service, which was announced even before the fourth had all its production samples revealed. Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has tweeted out a photo of the preview page, showing two of the upcoming figures. Unsurprisingly there's a reuse of the Oilmaster Pretender shell created for Botcon 2015's boxset, and a not-so outside the box reuse of Generations Arcee. Keep reading to see what they are!
Generations
We will take a look at the Transformers Planet of Junk Clash Platinum Edition collectors set. As always the painting on the front is great looking. This set says it is commemorating the 30th anniversary of Transformers the Movie. It is supposed to represent the Planet of Junk scenes from the movie, but the scene depicted in the painting never occurred in the movie. Read on to see the review below.
Generations
Thanks to zmultiplier on weibo who has shared a new image of what appears to be Titans Return Astrotrain, the Transformers Triple Changer. The image has been disgusied with some editing and inverting, to keep us guessing or something. We have included the reverted image and mirrored with the original below. Read on to see the Titans Return Astrotrain Image below.

Generation 1 Japan
Third Party
Gcreation China has posted an image of the first two figures of a projected IDW-style line in Masterpiece scale! Pricing is not yet known, but in the comments it's explained that the figures scale to MP-10 Optimus Prime and MP Prowl, suggesting that MP-10's trailer will be compatible with the new IDW Prime. It's also mentioned that "cool weapons" are in development for the figures, and that more figures are being planned for the line. Keep reading to see the image!
Third Party
Maz from TFSquareOne has spent some time photographing Seraphicus Prominon, Mastermind's version of Nova Prime and posting about it to his Twitter. The figure inspired a bit of recoil when it was revealed exactly how expensive getting the full package of figure plus trailer/armor would end up being. With this we can finally start to get a sense of whether it's worth the hefty price tag. We've copied some of Maz's photos and collected his comments on the figure, and you can check it all out below!
Conventions Center
The Winter Wonderfest 2016 is over, but it certainly didn't go without some good stuff to show. In the time since we reported last night, more photos have been posted from the event showing more detail on Masterpiece Optimus Primal, such as the furry appearance derived entirely through paint apps. We also have more detail shots of Blast Off and the Combaticons, including another look at their color promo poster, and new tonight we have showings from Prime 1 Studios with an array of movie-inspired statues, and another appearance of Heroes of Steel Optimus. Click through to see it all, along with a full list of photo credits!
Third Party
Garatron has posted testshot images to Weibo showing of the second in their Gand of Devils line! Following up on their impressive IDW Thunderwing will be G.o.D.-02 Galaxy Destroyer, a take on Unicron very, very similar to the unproduced Beast Wars Neo version that we've all seen photos for over the years. While not an exact match, it's close enough that you'd almost hope a grayscale version is produced just for fun. Click through to see more!
Generations
UPDATED - we now have a clearer look at the Bruticus image from @chromeless, to go along with the original Combaticon group shot from Wonderfest by Twitter user @gadepon. The source images are still not the greatest, but some added detail can be seen versus the even tinier and "DO NOT COPY" stamped retailer images that recently went out. In particular, Swindle and Vortex both show the split-color combiner plugs seen on Zombie War Breakdown from the Grand Galvatron set, in order to help the body colors be a little more source accurate. Click through and have a look!
 
Generations
Unfortunately it looks like we haven't seen the last of the grey Bruticus sample just yet. The TakaraTomy booth at Wonderfest is using that as their display piece, but all isn't lost. From the display, Twitter user @chromeless has gotten some good close up shots of Blast Off from all sides, giving us a nicely detailed look at this new figure. Also shown is the new rotor piece for Vortex and how it works in robot and combined forms. Keep reading to see it all!
From Twitter users @akaichikushou and @chromeless we have the first photo of Masterpiece Optimus Primal in color. Obviously a hand painted sample at this stage, the display piece should reflect the intended final appearance, plus or minus small variances in finish. There are some inconsistencies to the TV CGI model that may or may not get tweaked along the road to final production, but this is a very solid looking representation even as it sits right now. Click through to take a look and keep with us for more Wonderfest updates!
Third Party
539Designs, one of the designers who contribute to X-Transbots has posted an update to their DeviantArt account today. The print form of the just-released Arkose's instructions are apparently missing a panel depicting a portion of the transformation process. The missing portion has been published to DeviantArt along with the immediate prior and subsequent steps to show where this part is meant to take place. We've mirrored this image and cropped out the relevant panel as well for higher detail. Keep reading to get the info for this unofficial Beachcomber!
MasterPiece
We're still looking for corroboration on this, so file firmly in rumor territory for now, but it may be that the long-anticipated Masterpiece Jazz might be on the way. On Twitter, snakas of Autobase Aichi tweeted a silhouetted image depicting Jazz with the MP-31 text. Again, we're unsure of an original source for the information, but with Wonderfest happening today in Japan we're not ruling out the possibility of this as a reveal. We expect to have more Wonderfest coverage to share later tonight, so keep watching for that and more updates about the possible Masterpiece Jazz!
RID 2015
The second season of Robots in Disguise will be starting up in the United States earlier than you might have expected! TV listings site Zap2It now shows entries for the first three episodes of the new season of the cartoon, and has titles listed for the first two. The new season kicks off with "Overloaded, Part 1", likely getting the ball rolling with the introduction of the Cyclone Mini-Cons. We also have the air dates for the first three episodes, so keep reading to find out when to catch the new episodes!
Third Party
MakeToys really knocked it out of the park with MTRM-03 Hellfire and MTRM-05 Wrestle. These homages to the Transformers characters Inferno and Grapple are so immaculately done that theyre hard to put down. The build, colors, and even finish are extremely impressive in-hand and even the ratcheting areas feel very strong with small enough ratchet spaces to not feel like theyre restrictive in terms of movement/posing.
Third Party
FT-13 Mercenary is FansToys second evil insect after FT-12 Grenadier, and has a lot to live up to thanks to the success of the latter. Based on what was originally called a lamellicorn type beetle insect robot, Mercenary recreates the look of the original toy and on-screen inspiration.
Third Party
Third party Transformers news for the week ending January 31th, 2016. Includes the latest news from Clonedroid, FansProject, Generation Toys, Iron Factory, Maketoys, Mastermind Creations, Perfect Effect, Second Chance, TransForm Mission, and KOs.
