SDCC 2015 Transformers Convention News
Generations
More from Victor Wong on Facebook, now showing off Voyager Wave 4's Battle Core Optimus out of the box. A quick photo overview shows off the toy, including a side by side with the original release of Combiner Wars Optimus, although at least in that mode the robot head is the only point of retooling. Despite one combined form shot, we still haven't gotten a look to see the rumored retooling inside the combiner chest, but hopefully soon! Keep reading to take a look.
Collectors Club
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna, frequently the first on the block with the latest Collector's Club offerings is bringing us yet another first look at the latest subscription service toy to be sent out. This time it's Serpent O.R., the GI Joe crossover figure, which can now join Hasbro's Viper in a DeceptiCobra airforce. While Serpent O.R. still isn;t as nice looking as the mockups, John's photos certainly paint the figure in a great light. Click through to check them out!
RID 2015
YouTuber Silver Knight has posted a TV spot from Brazil for the RID Happy Meal toys! Besides featuring a pretty nice CGI Bumblebee, the ad features the four choices available: the Sideswipe and Grimlock toys from the US promotion, and Bumblebee and Optimus Prime facemasks. In fact, I'd say they're more tiaras based on how they work. Click through to watch the ad!
Generations
Victor Wong has posted images to the HK-TF Facebook page showing off his latest acquisition: Battle Core Optimus Prime! While certain sites like site sponsor BBTS had listed Battle Core Prime as shipping in July, that didn't pan out. But with an August ship date for the Deluxes and an HK sighting, it's not going to be that much longer. Read on to see photographic proof!

MasterPiece
Are we sure this isn't Skywarp in disguise? Because it just appeared out of nowhere: a preorder page for the MP-11 version of Masterpiece Starscream at ToysRUs! Unlike the Takara release it has a toy-accurate blue nosecone, though it's lost its coronation gear. It's due out October 1st at a price of $59.99 - if you're interested, it may be best to preorder now before TRU jacks the price up like they always do. Read on for a link!
Third Party
An update posted to the Weibo page of Dr Wu shows an image with three different styles of Mixmaster face, and unlike the early prototype recently shown, these are cartoon based, like the faces of the official Constructicon toys. Whether this points to the final product giving the option through replacement parts, or it's acknowledging fan response and moving off the original toy based head is uncertain right now. Stay tuned for more updates, and keep reading to see the full size image!
Third Party
If you want a cartoon-inspired jetpack for your Masterpiece Bumblebee but don't want to go in for the G2 redeco, you have a new option. Dr Wu has posted pictures of "Start Up", an accessory set featuring a rocket backpack, rocket blast effect parts, and "strap" parts to go over Bumblebee's shoulders. Now we just need Dr Wu to reveal their own version of Exosuit Witwicky and both sides of the MP Bumblebee split will be just about equal! Click through to see the photos.
Third Party
The Facebook page for the Ages Three And Up store has put up a small gallery of photos promoting the assortment of third party testshots currently visiting their retail location. Featuring a lot of Maketoys (including the Scorponok-based Pandinus), Fansproject, and more, there's a lot of new looks at upcoming figures, some revealed just as recently as TFCon. Click through to check it out!
Conventions Center
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We talk about the new Masterpiece Thundercracker figure coming from Takara Tomy, the Diaclone Reboot Masterpiece Toys, MakeToys Cyclonus upgrade kit, Dr Wu's NOT Mixmaster upgrade kit--er--figure, plus we sit down and chat with Colin Douglas, organizer of TFCon Charlotte about the upcoming convention.


Generations
Thanks to Newsarama, we've got our first look at the full preview for next week's Transformers comic release, issue 44 of The Transformers. As usual, we'll be bringing you the review of the issue first right here at TFormers, so check back early next week for that. Meanwhile, keep reading to check out the preview! "LOVE AND HATE! Two emotions only inches from each other-and TRACKS and NEEDLENOSE have felt them both. On opposite sides of an eons-long war, what happens when they meet again? And what's ARCEE up to on CYBERTRON?"
 
Generation 1 Japan
Robot Kingdom ROBOTKINGDOM.COM Newsletter #1284 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!
Transformers Adventure
TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki has posted a rare (and very vertical) outdoors image of Transformers Adventure TAV25 Runabout! A recolor of Generations Combiner Wars Legends-class Blackjack - who was himself intended to be G1 Battlecharger Runabout in the design phase - TAV Runabout will be available in August. Read on to see the photos!
Third Party
X-Transbots has published numerous photos of what is probably a near-final production sample of Andras, their take on a Masterpiece-style Scourge figure. Shown in what looks like production plastic colors and possibly paint deco, the photos highlight a lot of the toy's small details, as well as give comparisons to official Masterpiece figures for a better sense of the robot's size. This set of images also shows off the LED lighting feature in vehicle mode. To check out all the new shots, keep reading.
Conventions Center
Shockingly enough, all three of the Transformers exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop which debuted at San Diego Comic Con this summer are still available to purchase as of this writing. While this batch isn't the first to see one piece stick around for a little while after activation, it's probably the first time the whole assortment has stayed accessible and obtainable even for those not riding their mobile devices at work hoping to beat store crashes. So what made this year different? Keep reading!
Third Party
Today we've got a look at a figure by the group SparkToy, based on Optimus Prime as he appeared in Dreamwave's The War Within series. Marked as being 9 inches tall in robot mode, this figure is up there in similar scale with Leader Class toys. Fans of this design may be pleased to see this figure, as it had previously only been represented in the 6-inch Titanium Series. Price and release info are a ways off yet, as the shown sample is said to be a 3D printed prototype. Click through to have a look!
Generations
Following the news from the summer Con's we have the first ever joint Transformers Collectors Club and G.I. Joe Collectors Club Crossover Exclusives are now available for sale. The TFCC have Old Snake & Stealth B.A.T.S. at $79 USD and the Marissa Fairborn & Afterbreaker at $42 USD ready for order now. Read on for the images and order details.
Generations
TFW2005 forum member Deruji has posted a translation of the interview with Devastator designer Shogo Hasui in this month's Figure-Oh(Figure King) magazine! Within, we learn a lot in interesting things - the most notable of them being that the modern vehicle types like Mixmaster's were Hasbro's idea, and that the differences between Combiner Wars and Unite Warriors Devastator are, as we all guessed, a result of making the US figure fit a certain price point. Read on for an excerpt and a link to the full interview!
Legends
Hisashi Yuki has posted an image to Twitter showing off Legends Ultra Magnus alongside Transformers Adventure Optimus Prime - and TAV Beast Hunters Magnus' chagrin at having to compete with his G1/IDW rival. LG14 Magnus is due in September, so we can look forward to a month of TFYUKI posts to Twitter showing him off. Click through to see!
