Our next entry in photography of Titans Return Deluxe wave 2 is Highbrow! Sharing parts and engineering with Scourge, but in a way where you wouldn't realize it most of the time without looking at them side by side. As it has been with many things recently, this goes beyond the common idea of "retooling" to get from one to the next. However, while Chromedome rose above its origins as an engineering retread, Highbrow may not have pulled the trick off so well. We have over 100 photos for you to check out, and look for a proper review coming soon! Keep reading to see the gallery...
It's been a while, but by way of one Mr Chaos who has related reliable information in this area before we have some info on future product assortments for Titans Return. Coincidentally verifying Broadside, whose color testshot we got a first look at yesterday
, we have some additional Voyagers, Titans Masters, and a Legends assortment to look forward to! You can find all of that information in the full article below, so keep reading and let's see what's up!
With the newly restored Blu-Ray edition of Transformers: The Movie rolling out to retail. It seems the fans are digging more lore behind the Transformers Generation 1 goodness.
Check out this new video from YouTuber channel, I Like To Make Stuff, on how to make your own 3D Printed Model of the Transformers Matrix of Leadership. The video is quite detailed with tips on how to print, finish and paint your very own movie prop.
This weekend in Hong Kong, Maketoys held a "trial play" event where guests could get hands on time with some upcoming releases. The stars apparently were Despotron, the Re:Master series unofficial Masterpiece Megatron, as well as a Megatron-alike in their Cybertronian-style Cross Dimension series. A presentation also showed some concept art including seekers and an evident Ultra Magnus. Victor Wong took lots of photos at the event, and we have those shots mirrored in our gallery below. Keep reading and check it out!
There's only one `80s Triple-Changer that we've yet to get in the modern line: Broadside, the figure that changes from aircraft carrier to jet to robot. TFND has just posted an image to their Facebook page of a new Titans Return figure that looks very much to be a modern Broadside! The blue cockpit is correct, as is the general gray, red and dark gray color scheme. The earliest this could possibly be released is in the second 2017 wave, so this is quite an early find! Keep reading to see the photo.
Finally tonight is a look at Scourge from TakaraTomy's Legends line. While not as huge a difference as Blurr from its Hasbro counterpart, Scourge gains some much needed color and contrast variation. Once again Twitter users Alfes2010 and tagoal have provided some nice looks at this figure that do a good job highlighting its strengths versus the Titans Return release. And of course, we get to see the intentional but largely undocumented vehicle variation with the Titan Master attached to the main pylon. Keep reading to see the mirrored photos!
Next in our roundup of TakaraTomy Legends series figures for this month is Blurr. The Japanese release of this figure has been highly anticipated - and quickly presold out basically everywhere - due to its drastic deco differences from the Hasbro release. The photos from Alfes2010 and tagoal on Twitter show that it's turned out just as well as the publicity photos showed. There's even a side by side comparison included to demonstrate just how much has changed between releases. See that and more in the mirrored gallery below!
It's new toy day in Japan! We've got out of package shots from Twitter of this month's new Legends series releases thanks to users Alfes2010 and Tagoal. First up is TakaraTomy's use of the Legends-class Shockwave mold, paired with Cancer - that is, Titan Master Crashbash. Both are redecoed versus their original Hasbro releases to varying extents. Despite promotional images showing an improvised "seat" for Cancer, the two don't really interact. We've got photos mirrored below, so check them out now!
Fresh out of US online retail, we've got our first gallery for wave 2 of Deluxe Titans Return! We're starting with Chromedome, who is the most obviously similar to a prior toy. In this case it's the Dead End/Streetwise/etc mold family from which most of the toy's engineering is borrowed. However, don't let that mislead you, as this build sees all of those tricks refined just a bit, in to a very satisfying, solid product! Look forward to a full review coming soon, and for now check out our photo gallery with 123 images in the full article below!

Following our report sometime ago about the custom RED 8K camera that was created for the filmmaker for Michael Bay to use on his upcoming movie, "Transformers: The Last Knight." Well, who could be better to show off this marvel of technology, official dubbed "The Bayhem", than the director him, Michael Bay. Read on to see his video posted to Instagram of the camera and its features.
Blacklai has a new gallery on his blog showing off the just-released Masterpiece Delta Magnus! This figure represents the deco of Diaclone's Powered Convoy, seen briefly used in test animation in an early Transformers: The Movie trailer. Thanks to IDW assigning a specific identity to these colors, an easy opportunity was presented to turn another Diaclone alternate coloring in to a new Transformers character! We've mirrored a selection of photos showing off the highlights of the figure, which you can see below, and keep reading for a link to the original post.
Megatronia is a combiner figure made up of five female Transformers.
