Transformers News and Reviews
Generations
That special time of year is quickly approaching again. Toy Fair 2016 is happening as always in New York, beginning with Hasbro's fan media event on Saturday, February 13th. But with everything Hasbro has already shown us via NYCC and a special conference call in November, what is there to be revealed next month? How much more could there be for us to see that hasn't already been shown to us, especially since Combiner Wars is now shifting to the sidelines and Titans Return hasn't even begun yet? Keep reading to find out some of what we think we might see newly revealed!
Generations
Finally! After an extended hype cycle with blurry grayscale photos, then clear grayscale photos, then blurry color photos, we're finally to the all-important clear color photos part of the game. UW07 Bruticus features the animation-style coloration to its chestplate, and this is our best look yet at shuttle Blast Off! Interestingly Brawl and Swindle have appendage weapons that match their bodies, not a generic silver to match the animation as well. Keep reading to see for yourself!
Beast Wars
TakaraTomy has released a few new images of MP Optimus Primal and one of Unite Warriors Bruticus in their weekly Beast Wars Anniversary video! ...unfortunately, they're once again back to region-locking those videos to Japan. But fortunately, Autobase Aichi has posted some stills, detailing Primal's swords and his articulated fingers! Keep reading to have a look.
Beast Wars
Artist Matt Frank (Spotlight: Trailcutter, Mars Attacks The Transformers) has posted an interesting set of silhouettes on DeviantArt, titled "New Dino Transformers." Basically nothing is known about this except that Frank has permission to post this teaser, and whether this is a new IDW-led project or a Hasbro initiative of some kind remains to be seen. Either way, should be interesting to see - and it's always great to see the talented Frank working on Transformers. Keep reading to have a look!

Generations
The Lost Light is on lockdown. The crazed mnemosurgeon Sunder is on the loose, and the only thing standing between him and his intended victim Skids are a handful of Autobots who intend to stop him - or, like Tailgate, don't know what's going on... 'Speak, Memory!' Part 2 is written by James Roberts with art by Hayato Sakamoto (coordination by Phase6) and colors by Joana Lafuente. Click here to continue to the review!
Collectors Club
John DeLuna has also shared tonight some pictures from the Club magazine featuring membership premium figure Ramjet, and Club Store exclusive Skywarp, both based on the Generations Armada Starscream tooling. The image of Ramjet gives a good look at the new face sculpt, plus the deco giving it the look of a glowing mouth. And we also get a look at a mockup of the packaging for Skywarp, taking heavily after classic Armada packaging. Keep reading to see both pictures!
Generations
Apparently the attention seeking leakers have been listening to fan complaints and have now responded by releasing a new version of the partial Combiner Wars Computron art in full color. Perhaps the next step will be showing off the other half or even the entire piece! Or we could just wait for Toy Fair or another official channel to show us Computron. But if you can't wait to get another peek at this upcoming set, click through and check out the new picture.
Collectors Club
As promised some while back, the newest TFCC magazine issue contains a preview for the fifth iteration of the Transformers Figure Subscription Service, which was announced even before the fourth had all its production samples revealed. Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has tweeted out a photo of the preview page, showing two of the upcoming figures. Unsurprisingly there's a reuse of the Oilmaster Pretender shell created for Botcon 2015's boxset, and a not-so outside the box reuse of Generations Arcee. Keep reading to see what they are!
Generations
We will take a look at the Transformers Planet of Junk Clash Platinum Edition collectors set. As always the painting on the front is great looking. This set says it is commemorating the 30th anniversary of Transformers the Movie. It is supposed to represent the Planet of Junk scenes from the movie, but the scene depicted in the painting never occurred in the movie. Read on to see the review below.
Generations
Thanks to zmultiplier on weibo who has shared a new image of what appears to be Titans Return Astrotrain, the Transformers Triple Changer. The image has been disgusied with some editing and inverting, to keep us guessing or something. We have included the reverted image and mirrored with the original below. Read on to see the Titans Return Astrotrain Image below.
 
Generation 1 Japan
Third Party
Gcreation China has posted an image of the first two figures of a projected IDW-style line in Masterpiece scale! Pricing is not yet known, but in the comments it's explained that the figures scale to MP-10 Optimus Prime and MP Prowl, suggesting that MP-10's trailer will be compatible with the new IDW Prime. It's also mentioned that "cool weapons" are in development for the figures, and that more figures are being planned for the line. Keep reading to see the image!
Third Party
Maz from TFSquareOne has spent some time photographing Seraphicus Prominon, Mastermind's version of Nova Prime and posting about it to his Twitter. The figure inspired a bit of recoil when it was revealed exactly how expensive getting the full package of figure plus trailer/armor would end up being. With this we can finally start to get a sense of whether it's worth the hefty price tag. We've copied some of Maz's photos and collected his comments on the figure, and you can check it all out below!
Conventions Center
The Winter Wonderfest 2016 is over, but it certainly didn't go without some good stuff to show. In the time since we reported last night, more photos have been posted from the event showing more detail on Masterpiece Optimus Primal, such as the furry appearance derived entirely through paint apps. We also have more detail shots of Blast Off and the Combaticons, including another look at their color promo poster, and new tonight we have showings from Prime 1 Studios with an array of movie-inspired statues, and another appearance of Heroes of Steel Optimus. Click through to see it all, along with a full list of photo credits!
Third Party
Garatron has posted testshot images to Weibo showing of the second in their Gand of Devils line! Following up on their impressive IDW Thunderwing will be G.o.D.-02 Galaxy Destroyer, a take on Unicron very, very similar to the unproduced Beast Wars Neo version that we've all seen photos for over the years. While not an exact match, it's close enough that you'd almost hope a grayscale version is produced just for fun. Click through to see more!
Generations
UPDATED - we now have a clearer look at the Bruticus image from @chromeless, to go along with the original Combaticon group shot from Wonderfest by Twitter user @gadepon. The source images are still not the greatest, but some added detail can be seen versus the even tinier and "DO NOT COPY" stamped retailer images that recently went out. In particular, Swindle and Vortex both show the split-color combiner plugs seen on Zombie War Breakdown from the Grand Galvatron set, in order to help the body colors be a little more source accurate. Click through and have a look!
Generations
Unfortunately it looks like we haven't seen the last of the grey Bruticus sample just yet. The TakaraTomy booth at Wonderfest is using that as their display piece, but all isn't lost. From the display, Twitter user @chromeless has gotten some good close up shots of Blast Off from all sides, giving us a nicely detailed look at this new figure. Also shown is the new rotor piece for Vortex and how it works in robot and combined forms. Keep reading to see it all!
From Twitter users @akaichikushou and @chromeless we have the first photo of Masterpiece Optimus Primal in color. Obviously a hand painted sample at this stage, the display piece should reflect the intended final appearance, plus or minus small variances in finish. There are some inconsistencies to the TV CGI model that may or may not get tweaked along the road to final production, but this is a very solid looking representation even as it sits right now. Click through to take a look and keep with us for more Wonderfest updates!
