Mastermind Creations have updated their Facebook page showing their upcoming Spartan figure based on Impactor - especially the character's appearance in IDW comics - with a slightly tweaked deco in response to fan feedback. Now sporting a muted yellow color, we can see the toy in what looks to be a full final deco, and it's looking pretty fantastic! We've got the photos mirrored, so keep reading and take a look!

So Hot Spot, Rook, and Streetwise were all pretty great, Blades is decent, and First Aid is okayish. But, how do the Protectobots do working together? RAC has the answers in his review of Defensor, the eagerly awaited third full combiner to join the Combiner Wars! Continue To The Review!
An unexpected hit in Japan, the QTransformers animation series has returned for a second season! The first episode is titled "The Road To Winning A New Fanbase," and seems to be congratulating itself on acquiring an audience that doesn't entirely overlap with existing Transformers fans. As always, the episode involves a lot of standing around and talking in a language most of the people who visit this site don't speak - but at least it'll only take 3:30 out of your day. If that sounds good to you, keep reading to watch!
Autobase Aichi has shared a screengrab from the TakaraTomy Mall website showing MP-18B Bluestreak dated for August 29th and priced at 7,992 Yen! Named "Bluestreak" to differentiate him from the standard version of the character who in Japan is simply named "Streak," this Diaclone-colors figure is of course a recolor of Streak, himself remolded from Masterpiece Prowl. Keep reading for photos!
Autobase Aichi reports that this month's issue of Terebi Magazine
has shown off a special edition EZ Collection figure that will be given away with the next issue. Dubbed Black Knight Bumblebee, this is yet another take on the reverse-colors "Stealth Bumblebee" color scheme. The magazine will cost 778 Yen before taxes and will also feature a manga about Bumblebee's new look. Keep reading to see the figure!
Announced nearly a year ago, Kids Logic has posted new images of their Mecha Nations MN05 Starscream figure to Facebook! The high-end collectible is a poseable super-deformed figure of Starscream with Megatron gun accessory and light-up eyes - which due to being lit by two LEDs each look extra
creepy. Keep reading to see!
RACE AGAINST THE LIGHT! On VELOCITRON, racing isn't a sport-it's a matter of life and death! WINDBLADE and BLURR put the pedal to the metal to save CYBERTRON-and their own lives.
The Allspark has posted a few quick shots of the Warrior Class Sideswipe redeco from the exclusive Clash Of The Transformers sub-branding. Serving to give us a better sense of how the toy came out in production, the photos don't go in to much detail, but will certainly do until more, better photos turn up. We've mirrored a couple of the shots, so keep reading to check those out and get a link back to the Allspark album.
TakaraTomy is making no secret of an aim to "perfect" as much as they can the Combiner Wars toys for their iteration of the toyline. Groove is joining their Defensor as a full limb, raising the bar just a bit from restoring classic team lineups with recolors as they're doing with Superion and Menasor. It doesn't seem much of a leap that they could make an original Blast Off figure for when they get to Bruticus, but what are the chances of seeing these made available through Hasbro? Keep reading...
Solving one mystery about the Platinum reissues of Astrotrain and Blitzwing, we now know who's carrying this box set in the United States! Amazon has a preorder page up for the set, priced at $69.99. Due to ship August 1st, the same day as Devastator, it looks like these will soon be easily available to any interested. Of course, the mystery of their decos is one that remains very much unsolved, and may well remain so for the foreseeable future. Keep reading for a link to the product page!
In his latest tweet, TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki attached a photo of a G1 Bruticus with Groove as an arm as Blast Off looks on. Since a Unite Warriors version of the Decepticon combiner is basically assured, it's hard not to take this as a hint towards at least the intent to add a proper Blast Off to it, in place of Hasbro's brown Slingshot. It's surely too soon to expect anything more than this to be revealed on the subject, so for now it's just something to ponder over. Click through to have a look at the photo.
