Transformers News and Reviews
Generation 1 Japan
Robot Kingdom ROBOTKINGDOM.COM Newsletter #1266 Hi, Here is a quick update from www.robotkingdom.com. All ORDERS WITH GENERATIONS 2015 ITEMS WILL RECEIVE 1 HASBRO EXCLUSIVE COMBINER WARS STRICKER PER ORDER!
Age of Extinction
The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted a wealth of images of the new Ultimate Optimus Prime, showing off what almost has to be the definitive version of Optimus as he appeared in Transformers (2007), Revenge Of The Fallen, and Dark Of the Moon. Featuring comparisons to the previous APS-01 release, Ultimate Prime features lots more paint and a tremendous loadout of weapons. The figure's due for release on April 24th but in the meantime you can keep reading to see the mirrored gallery of 43 images!
Age of Extinction
Cinematic Universes are a Thing right now, with Marvel and Star Wars leading the way. Now, according to Deadline, Paramount is looking at their biggest movie property with an eye towards more varied (and frequent) releases. To that end they're enlisting writer Akiva Goldsman, whose credits range from the drama A Beautiful Mind to the well-received TV series Fringe ...to Batman Forever and Batman and Robin. This should be interesting. The story also hints that Michael Bay may unsurprisingly be returning for Transformers 5 after his current movie project - or at least that TF5 won't go ahead until that project is complete. Keep reading for more details!
Generations
Singapore's Planet Iacon has posted a set of in-hand photos of the upcoming Leader-Class Thundercracker figure! A reworking of last year's Leader-class Jetfire, Thundercracker is as impressive looking as a Starscream recolor is inevitable. Keep reading to see!

Generation 1
Hobby Brinquedos, the same source that brought us the new images of Cyber Battalion Optimus and Bumblebee has loaded new high-resolution stock photos for the Platinum two-pack of G1 triple changers Astrotrain and Blitzwing. While the decos for these - especially Astrotrain - defy analysis, the new looks should be a welcome sight to those who already have older reissues or simply enjoy seeing new ideas on old toys. Click through to check them out!
MasterPiece
Here's my review of the new Transformers Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber! I didn't expect it to run so long at 45 minutes, so I have rambled a little bit LOL!! But there were a lot of different things to go through with the figure.
Third Party
Dr. Wu has started a new imprint known as Dr. Q, and the first product up is a 4" tall Babylock! Patterned, of course, after G1 Grimlock's T-Rex mode except with childlike/SD proportions, Babylock is scheduled to ship in late April at a price of $40. Keep reading for images and a link to a preorder page from site sponsor TFSource!
Third Party
Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron was recently given the opportunity to review a test shot of the upcoming Fans Toys Sever, their Snarl-alike done in the Masterpiece style! It's a pretty impressive, massive figure, and diecast seems pretty pleased with it. See for yourself by continuing to the full post!
Generations
Brazilian distributor site Hobby Brinquedos has turned up new images for the large Optimus and Bumblebee figures coming in the new simplified Generations figure line. Borrowing engineering elements from various Cyberverse and similar sources, these are big, sturdy figures that are easy to transform and provide for younger fans to enjoy toys based on G1 characters they may have seen on Netflix or The Hub until very recently. Click through and check out the new looks at these figures!
Generations
An article at Destructoid has compared the personalities of three Transformers characters to the fates and marketing strategies of the current generation of video-gaming consoles. It's... honestly kind of a headscratcher, but the reasoning is there - and writer Mark Cosimano clearly has a real affection for IDW's More Than Meets The Eye series. So which characters are most like the XboxOne, Playstation 4 and WiiU? Keep reading to find out!
 
Third Party
Our friends at TFSource have brought us our first look at the next member of Toyworld's dino robot combiner project, D-03 Corelock. This figure inspired by Grimlock will make up the core of the eventual combiner robot, but looks great as a standalone piece in it's highly detailed sculpt that stays faithful to the source material. Corelock will join Roar and Muddy as they wait for their last two teammates. You can find the two already released members of the dino robot team over at TFSource! Keep reading to see all the photos.
Generations
Today we take a look at the new Transformers Generations Legends Combiner Wars Powerglide from Hasbro. Get a look at the figure out of the box as well as the transformation from robot to alternate modes. Read on to see the full video review and images now.
RID 2015
The Japanese toyline for Robots In Disguise, AKA Transformers Adventure, is featuring a lot of molds that didn't make it out in Japan otherwise in new decos. And of course some old TakaraTomy favorites like Nemesis Prime. Today Hisashi Yuki took to Twitter to show off TAV13 Nemesis Prime and TAV14 Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus, both of which look good! The photos also feature a brief cameo by TED05 Junkion, a dumptruck-themed recolor of Age of Extinction Hound. Keep reading to see!
Legends
TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki continues looking for ways to take up the time previously devoted to Masterpiece Star Saber. Today he's giving us a good look at the Legends Series version of Leader Class Megatron. Verifying what we saw from the low-res image recently, this version of the toy skews much more to the cartoon interpretation of Megatron, streamlining the deco including removing a lot of the accenting red and replacing it with more grey and silver. Click through to see the full size image!
RID 2015
Coming soon to a Happy Meal near you will be toys based on the current Robots in Disguise series. The assortment of 8 toys are focused around action features and do not transform and represent most of the main Autobot cast and a few of the Decepticons. Notably absent are Strongarm and Steeljaw, however! Joining RID in this promotion will be an assortment of My Little Pony toys representing Hasbro's other major brand. Click through for an image of the RID toys!
Third Party
Three days left on in the Lost Protectors Kickstarter, and we have pictures of the painted prototypes of Desolataur, D-Mon and D-Throne from the Play With This Too Facebook page. Pledge now if you plan to get these!
RID 2015
Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has posted their preorder listings for the third wave of Robots In Disguise Warrior-class figures, including new molds Sideswipe and Jazz! The pair are up for preorder for $35.99 for the set, and both look pretty decent at the Almost-Deluxe pricepoint. Keep reading to see!
Generation 1
MP-18B MASTERPIECE BLUESTREAK The new MP-18B Bluestreak lives up to his name! He transforms from robot to a Nissan Fairlady 280Z-T and stands nearly 6 tall in robot mode. Bluestreak is made of die-cast and plastic components, comes with his laser rifle and is listed for $79.99.
