Transformers News and Reviews
SDCC 2015 Transformers Convention News
Generations
Combiner Wars meets Masterpiece in another photo shoot from Gikpa, who has found a way to attach the Masterpiece Bumblebee mold (the G2 variety in this case) to the Combiner Wars Optimus torso, and still getting Legends Rodimus in there too! While the method of combination is not shown in these photos, it's still an interesting and not at all bad looking custom combined form. We've mirrored a few of the photos, but there's many more at Gikpa's Facebook, which you can find linked below. Keep reading to check it all out!
Transformers Adventure
By way of a pack-in catalog image, we have what we believe is the first look at Transformers Adventure Stepper, originally revealed as part of the fourth VS pack some months back. Just as expected from the name and the silhouette of the Jazz toy as a placeholder, this is very much a classic Stepper (or Ricochet), and similar to Gold Armor Grimlock features a modified headsculpt with a visor rather than Jazz's separate eyes. We've got the image mirrored, so click through and have a look!
Generation 1
The Transformers Game Facebook page has updated once again, offering up a couple pieces of concept art for Sideswipe. Though not as detailed in to a development process as some of the prior reveals, these are nice pieces of clean lineart that reflect Sideswipe's appearance in the game and are still fun little bits of background to see. Keep reading to see both pieces of art!
Third Party
Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook again offers a set of excellent photos. This time looking at the just-released Unite Warriors Menasor wearing the Perfect Combiner PC-01 hands and feet and the PC-04 body kit. Besides showing how the parts look on the Takara release, they do a great job of demonstrating just what kind of mobility Menasor can have using the parts. If you've been on the fence about either upgrade, these might be what sells you. Click through to see it yourself!

RID 2015
Our friend chuckdawg has stopped by the forums to once again share with us a new review video. This time he's looking at the Toys R Us exclusive Optimus Prime vs Megatronus Legion Class Two Pack from Clash of The Transformers. Optimus is another recolor of the existing RID Optimus Legion, while Megatronus is new, but isn't without faults to be found. We've got the video embedded below, so keep reading and take a look!
Third Party
From the Facebook page of Genmon Photo Vault, we've got a great look at the color testshot of Boost, X-Transbots' take on Windcharger. Though this example is said to be without any paint work, it's already looking quite nice, and the photos go through a nice overview including a step-by-step look at how the arms and legs transform, plus size comparisons with similar figures. There's also a couple quick glimpses of a testshot of Hatch - the unofficial Tailgate sharing this mold. Click through to check it out!
Generation 1
We've seen all kinds of Transformers made from just about everything, not a toy. Somewhere, someone is always tinkering with a new idea and it seems this latest one takes the cake, literally! Thanks to Youtuber, russellmunro, who has posted this video from a 6 year old's birthday party featuring an Optimus Prime birthday cake that actually transforms. What a nice surprise! Read on to see the clip and a little behind the scenes on how it was done.
Generations
Alex Milne has posted a clean copy of his cover for Sins of the Wreckers #1! The much anticipated followup to the highly-acclaimed Last Stand of the Wreckers will see Nick Roche returning as writer/artist with Josh Burcham as colorist. Milne's cover features Josh Perez on colors - keep reading to see!
RID 2015
Hasbro has released a new short clip from the second part of Robots In Disguise's first season! Titled "Optimus Prime in Battle" and/or "Optimus Prime Prepares," what it shows is far closer to the first title - but we don't want to give any further details away. We can't embed the video, so keep reading for a link to the video page of the official Transformers website!
Collectors Club
With roughly a week to go before the order period for the fourth figure subscription closes, the Transformers Collector's Club is following through on its promise to get current renders of the remaining figures out to their customers and potential customers. Today's entry is Bludgeon, the core of the Mayhem Attack Squad combiner(and a remold of Onslaught, the as yet unreleased remold of Combiner Wars Hot Spot). Furthermore, a new gestalt head is promised - which presumably we'll see in the upcoming render of the combined form. Read on to see Bludgeon!
 
Third Party
Toyworld has released new photos showing off a fully assembled copy of their dinosaur combiner. Having been seen previously as generally incomplete assemblies and without production colors, this is our first real look at the intended outcome of Toyworld's Dinobot project, and it certainly is something! We'll have to wait to see if other angles change the perception, but at the moment it's very much living up to the legacy of Dinobot combiners. To see it for yourself, click through and check out the full image.
Transformers Adventure
Hisashi Yuki has posted a pair of photos of TED-11 Steeljaw, TakaraTomy's release of our Hyperchange/Three-Step Changer figure which is due out this weekend along with Runabout and Override. Yuki pits it against the Hasbro counterpart, and the difference is amazing. And then much more so with a closeup on the head and its far more detailed paint. These simple conversion figures may not appeal to everyone, but deco like this can't hurt! Keep reading to have a look at both photos.
Collectors Club
On Wednesday, September 2nd, the order period for TFSS round 4 will close, making this the final week to get in on the Mayhem Attack Squad combiner set. With so little time remaining, Fun Publications will be rushing the last three revised mockup reveals out starting at the end of the week, covering Bludgeon, the combined form, and Impactor. Meanwhile this week they've already published a new mockup for Windsweeper, which we've got mirrored, so click through and have a look!
Generation 1
Take a closer look at each playable Autobot character's unique fighting style and specialized moves on the Sony PlayStation PS4 and PS3 edition. Get a look at the Autobot Leader Optimus Prime and his team as they callout and fight the evil Decepticons. Check out the special abilities each character possesses featuring Optimus Prime and Grimlock as well as the newest characters: Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Sideswipe. Watch the clip below for the full look at the game that will be out October 6, 2015.
Generation 1
The Transformers Game Facebook page has a new character profile for us. Check out the bio sheet for Sideswipe that gives us a look his attacks and abilities in gameplay, as well as showing off the character that is looking nicely G1 with his shoulder missile and full on Red Countach alternate mode.. Read on to see the character image as well as the character's game bio for more details below.
Generations
The Transformers Official YouTube channel has posted a commerical for Combiner Wars Defensor! Done in the enhanced stop motion style of the previous Superion ad, the commercial features some really nice little touches, like Groove bouncing slightly on Defensor's chest as the combination is completed. Click through to watch!
Generations
Autobase Aichi reports that, like Superion and Menasor, there is now a sticker sheet for Combiner Wars Devastator that has appeared in Taiwan! Unlike those sticker sheets, which were available with any sufficiently large purchase, these are only being offered with the purchase of Devastator himself. Hopefully these will find their way to other online retailers as happened with the first set of stickers. Keep reading to see the sheet, the instructions, and some before and after images!
Generation 1 Japan
For the past five years or so, TakaraTomy has partnered with the Super GT racing series to promote "Kids' Walk" events designed to boost interest in the sport. This year, the giveaway for children who tour the raceway and pits with their parents will receive this Team Mach GT-R Optimus Prime figure. While not technically the Mach 5 from Speed Racer/Mach Go Go Go!, it could be a pretty good substitute for you at QTransformers scale - if you can get a hold of one. Keep reading for more info!
