Transformers News and Reviews
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!
Collectors Club
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.

Toyworld's gigantic 20 inch tall Construction Combiner is now available for preorder at site sponsor TFSource!

Age of Extinction
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!
Collectors Club
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! Click through to read the announcement.
RID 2015
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!
Generation 1 Japan
Premium Collectables Weekly Newsletter A lot of new pre orders listed this week, here are a couple you might want to consider: Diaclone Reboot - Dia-Battles V2 $160 AUD Or $115 USD. Takara Tomy Masterpiece Hot Rod $99.95 AUD Or $70 USD. Takara Tomy MP Shockwave $169.95 AUD Or $120 USD. Read on for links and more info!
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!
Generation 1
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!
TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki is getting back to posting photo teasers for us, bringing out a nice photo of Starscream Super Mode, more likely known to you as Armada Thundercracker, the recolor of Generations Armada Starscream due out early next year. In the accompanying tweet, Yuki seems to lament the current practice of long, adjective-laden names, specifically mentioning things like DJ or BB from Beast Wars Second for their brief simplicity. Keep reading to have a look at the photo!
Sidecutter from Captured Prey has posted up a new photo featuring the testshots of Brawl and Scattershot, plus everyone's current favorite target of confused stares, the Demolishor-headed Onslaught. With New York Comic Con next week, we may learn more about if Demolishor has any particular future in the line. In the meantime, we may get to see a bit more out of Brawl soon, such as the arm mode that seems to have so far gone undocumented. Keep watching for updates!
RID 2015
Newsarama jumps the line once again bringing out the full length preview for Robots In Disguise a few days early. We've mirrored the images for easy viewing, so click through to have a look. Of course, we'll have the review of the issue first right here, early next week so be sure to watch for that! BUMBLEBEE's investigation of a mysterious DECEPTICON's past uncovers a new lead... but unraveling this mystery may not reveal the answer he wants to hear.
Generation 1 Japan
A variety of QTransformers preorders have popped up on various sites, and there's some fun and weird stuff in here!

February brings QTC-07 Evangelion 01 Awakening Version (from movie 2.0) as well as plushes of QTF animation regulars Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Lockdown! Click through to see it all!
TakaraTomy has announced the Legends Series equivalent of Generations Springer, LG19! Modeled after Springer's animated appearance, the figure has a lot more green going on than the US release's toy-based paintjob. The figure is due in February 2016. Keep reading to see more!
Via Autobase Aichi and site sponsor TF Source, we have a lot of new color photos and information on MP-28 Hot Rod and MP-29 Shockwave!
