Transformers News and Reviews
RID 2015
User KingStyle has posted some photos and quick thoughts on RID 2015 Drift, giving us our first good look at this just-released figure. Drift is based on a rejected color layout for Age of Extinction Drift, giving it its very orange look. There's a range of photos including shots giving good size comparison to several other toys, as well as good demonstrations of its poseability. Keep reading to find out more and see all of the photos!
Generation 1 Japan
DLE has posted the fourth episode of the QTransformers animation to YouTube! Titled "Mystery Of Stage Bosses," it seems (to we non-speakers of Japanese) to feature a discussion on the weird, slightly dull stage bosses of Transformers: Mystery of Convoy and its QTransformers smartphone remake. Keep reading to see the video and be confused!
Generations
Hellbat exposits the depths of his villainous nefarity before ordering the deaths of Ratchet, Drift, and the late-arriving Grit in the chamber of the dormant stone army! Drift: Empire of Stone #3, written by Shane McCarthy, breakdowns by Guido Guidi, finishes by Stephen Baskerville, colors by John-Paul Bove. Read the full review
Angry Birds
The Autobirds and Deceptihogs have bigger eggs to fry than each other! But, will personality clashes and techno-organic glitches doom the alliance before it even begins? "Revenge of the Fowlin'!" is written by John Barber, with art by Marcelo Ferreira, colors by Nikos Koutsis, and flats by Mike Toris. Continue to fowl review

Generations
THE STONE ARMY! The secrets of DRIFT'S past become his present-day problems... and RATCHET'S none too happy about being dragged along!
Generations
Hasbro has issued an official press release announcing the Combiner Wars Fan-Built Combiner Poll! The poll is now live as part of the official Transformers brand app on iOS and Android, and a bonus question will be hosted on ToysRUs' Twitter account on February 18th to determine the Combiner's special power. Keep reading for the full press release!
Animated
Jim Sorenson has posted the art for the upcoming Complete Allspark Almanac to his blog, Disciples of Boltax! The book combines and expands the two individual Allspark Almanac releases into the single best reference book you will ever own for Transformers Animated. Sorenson estimates that the book will hit comic stores on February 18th, and Amazon.com shortly afterwards. Keep reading to see the art!
RID 2015
2005 Forums member Sioce has found RID2015 Warrior class Optimus Prime at retail! The second wave of figures includes Prime and Drift, with the latter not yet spotted. But if you're near a Target in Temecula, CA, you may want to stop in and have a look for yourself. Keep reading for the photo and for a link to the original post!
Collectors Club
Clearly trying to take some control and get in front of the unauthorized leaks, Fun Publications has posted a single photo of Subscription Service 3's Serpent O.R. figure to their Facebook page. Based on a robotic form of GI Joe villain Serpentor, this recolor of Generations Scourge (featuring the unreleased to the US Ratbat head) uses a number of strategic paint apps to suggest snake features and give Serpentor's traditional costume colors. Click through for the full size image!
Collectors Club
Can we get the entirety of Figure Subscription Service 3 revealed before the end of the day? We're making good progress toward that as Photobucket user "Xamot" has posted two new images of Krok, a retool of IDW stealth bomber Megatron, complete with Gatoraider Arms Micron partner. The same user also put up a photo of a few bagged samples of Carzap leading to speculation these may be the first two pieces in TFSS 3. Of course, Fun Publications could choose to shuffle the order now to maintain surprise. Click through for the photos!
 
Go-Bots
Hasbro has filed with the US Patent Office for a pair of very broad trademarks on the name "Go-Bots," applying to both Entertainment and Consumer Products. Pretty much everything is on the table from TV shows and movies to games and of course, toys. It's unlikely that we're going to see everything that the trademarks cover - a GoBots tabletop RPG? I don't think so - but if Hasbro were to want to create anything new for Go-Bots or even just reissue Challenge of the GoBots on DVD, this would be the first step. Keep reading for a link to the filings and a list of what exactly is covered!
Generations
The Collector's Club figures aren't the only exclusive Transformers to have fallen into the hands of eBayer lena81822 of late. Also in the seller's listings is Transformers Cloud Hellwarp! A Beast Wars II-inspired recolor of Generations Sky-Byte, Hellwarp is an upgrade of Skywarp (with Cloud appropriating Takara's version of Fall of Cybertron Skywarp to serve as that universe's version of the character). Shark Mode isn't shown, but there's a solid gallery of robot mode photos. Keep reading to see!
Collectors Club
Following our first look at Lio Convoy, we've also found a listing for Carzap giving us a comprehensive look at this figure's presumably final production state. This sample seems to lack the Kreon GB Blackrock accessory set tying the character to its incredibly obscure Block Town origins, but gives a good look at this figure which will ship as part of Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3 later this year. Keep reading to check out all the mirrored photos!
Collectors Club
Ebay seller lena81822 has turned up once again with a first in hand look at a new toy. The Orion Pax recolor Lio Convoy is due in the next few months as the yearly freebie figure given to everyone who has an active subscription to the Transformers Collectors Club. Notable on this sample, where the original mockup showed wide ornamental fins on the sides of the head, those are absent and appear as though they've been cut off after the head came out of the mold. The Club's problems with new head toolings seem like they might be coming around yet again! Click through to see the full mirrored gallery.
Generation 1 Japan
Greetings Sourcefans! This week we're excited to have several new preorders from Takara, including Transformers-Q, Transformers Adventure, and Transformers Unite - TU-01 Superion!
Third Party
Maketoys has posted teaser images and a brief description for a new line of figures titled Re:Master. The name and text seem to imply a "new scale," and puts heavy emphasis on the concept of scale in general. Current speculation is that the figures - interpretations of Chromedome, Hound, and Inferno shown only in silhouette- will be in the post-MP-10 Masterpiece scale, but nothing is known as of yet. Keep reading to see!
Age of Extinction
Transformers Asia has announced a new high-end movie Optimus Prime based on the Jetwing Optimus Prime mold that was previously exclusive to Japan. Ultimate Optimus Prime is a highly-painted version of that mold said to be "Loaded with Accessories and Weapons!" More details as they become available, but for now keep reading to check out the photo!
RID 2015
Amazon Japan has filled in lots of high res shots of the first batches of figures for the Transformers Adventure line, the branding for TakaraTomy's version of Robots in Disguise (2015), padded out with lots of figures from other lines. This batch covers from TAV-01 to -12 consisting of RID Warriors, a little Generations, Animated, and Transformers Prime, and TE-01 to -05, covering the initial RID One-Step Changers, Hyperchange Grimlock, and the garbage truck character created for Age of Extinction. We've got a lot of photos, so keep reading and check them out!
