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!
Hisashi Yuki has posted some more photos of Unite Warriors Guardian, AKA Defensor! Most significantly, he's posted a really nice shot of Deluxe-sized Groove in Robot Mode, as well as putting it together with Combiner Wars Legends class Groove and the G1 original. Keep reading to see!
Perfect Effect has announced that they're adding the Constructicons' guns to their PC-07 upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Devastator! In addition, they've announced that both their PC-06 Devastator upgrades and PC-07 Constructicon upgrades should be compatibile with either the Takara or Hasbro releases - though presumably that's the biggest concern for PC-06, as PC-07 largely brings the Hasbro version up to speed with Takara's Unite Warriors UW04 version. Keep reading for the announcement and a teaser photo!
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted a pair of preorders for new figures in the QTransformers line based on the Paper Rabbit Rope
series. (That's pronounced "Ro-peh," not "rope.") There's precious little information about the characters out there, but we did find a Japanese language commerical of the QTransformers to be - Rope and Akira-sempai - enjoying delicious Nissin Ramen. Keep reading to see the ad and the photos!
TFW2005 has posted new images found on Weibo of FansProject's Function-X6 figure, Knight! This reuse of the MADLAW mold represents the Masterforce character Sixknight, the Japanese G1 equivalent of Quickswitch. It's looking pretty nice in Sixknight's cooler color scheme. Keep reading to see!
YouTuber chuckdawg1999 has reviewed RID Deployers Fracture! He's not particularly thrilled with it as a toy for adults or
kids, so this is likely worth a watch if you've been interested in the toy for yourself or as a gift for that burgeoning Transformers fan you know. Keep reading!
Robot Kingdom has just updated their Facebook page with copies of the Perfect Effect Devastator upgrade images, noting that preorders for them will begin next week. But more importantly it looks like they're also verifying the distribution of parts. According to their information, PC-06 will include the Devastator specific parts and vehicle upgrades, while PC-07 will feature just the Constructicon forearm addons. Pricing remains to be seen, but at least it looks like you'll have the chance to choose what extent of upgrades you want to apply.
TAKARA UNITE WARRIORS UW-04 DEVASTATOR
New in the Unite Warriors line, get all six Constructicons in one cool box set to create the mighty Devastator. The Takara version of the mighty Devastator features more intricate paint details and is rumored to include these features as well: Individual guns for each figure, elbow joints for several individual figures, possible change to face or face sculpt, and purple Devastator hands. Stay tuned for further details as they are released. $224.99
Takara's on Hisashi Yukis has dropped a new image on Twitter of the Unite Warriors Menasor and Warriors Superion sets in the box. We've not seen Menasor's box yet and are looking forwards to what Takara will bring with their version that will be released in Japan, next month in August. Read on to see the image and google translated info now.
UK Combiner Wars fans were promised that, while Menasor (and a Superion that doesn't have a racecar for a limb) would remain an elusive dream, they would be getting Combiner Wars Wave 3. Today Urluck from Full Metal Hero confirmed that, as Hot Spot was found in an Argos store in Nottingham for 22.99. UK folks: keep reading for the post and evidence! US folks: look up the exchange rate, and thank your lucky stars!

Autobase Aichi has posted details on the July Transformers Adventure EZ Collection campaign in Japan! Depending on where you spend 3,000 Yen on Transformers figures, you can get one of three Legion-class figures: Clear Grimlock and Sideswipe, or a ToysRUs-themed Optimus Prime!

Now that the figure is filtering out to stores this was inevitable, right? Perfect Effect's Japanese Twitter account has posted a set of images of a planned upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Devastator! There's a lot of improvements both small and large in these photos, as well as something many IDW fans have been clamoring for. Keep reading for photos and a description!
A few reports have started circulating that Toys R Us in Times Square has stocked MP Bluestreak's Hasbro release. This is notable both because this item was supposed to debut at SDCC at the shared Toys R Us/Entertainment Earth booth, and because thereafter it was said it would be available online only. Whether this is the product of a shipping error or other fluke remains to be seen, but this may be more widely available than expected, at the same $70 price point Prowl sold at. If it's of interest to you, then happy hunting!
