Transformers News and Reviews
Generations
An article at Destructoid has compared the personalities of three Transformers characters to the fates and marketing strategies of the current generation of video-gaming consoles. It's... honestly kind of a headscratcher, but the reasoning is there - and writer Mark Cosimano clearly has a real affection for IDW's More Than Meets The Eye series. So which characters are most like the XboxOne, Playstation 4 and WiiU? Keep reading to find out!
Third Party
Our friends at TFSource have brought us our first look at the next member of Toyworld's dino robot combiner project, D-03 Corelock. This figure inspired by Grimlock will make up the core of the eventual combiner robot, but looks great as a standalone piece in it's highly detailed sculpt that stays faithful to the source material. Corelock will join Roar and Muddy as they wait for their last two teammates. You can find the two already released members of the dino robot team over at TFSource! Keep reading to see all the photos.
Generations
Today we take a look at the new Transformers Generations Legends Combiner Wars Powerglide from Hasbro. Get a look at the figure out of the box as well as the transformation from robot to alternate modes. Read on to see the full video review and images now.
RID 2015
The Japanese toyline for Robots In Disguise, AKA Transformers Adventure, is featuring a lot of molds that didn't make it out in Japan otherwise in new decos. And of course some old TakaraTomy favorites like Nemesis Prime. Today Hisashi Yuki took to Twitter to show off TAV13 Nemesis Prime and TAV14 Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus, both of which look good! The photos also feature a brief cameo by TED05 Junkion, a dumptruck-themed recolor of Age of Extinction Hound. Keep reading to see!

Legends
TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki continues looking for ways to take up the time previously devoted to Masterpiece Star Saber. Today he's giving us a good look at the Legends Series version of Leader Class Megatron. Verifying what we saw from the low-res image recently, this version of the toy skews much more to the cartoon interpretation of Megatron, streamlining the deco including removing a lot of the accenting red and replacing it with more grey and silver. Click through to see the full size image!
RID 2015
Coming soon to a Happy Meal near you will be toys based on the current Robots in Disguise series. The assortment of 8 toys are focused around action features and do not transform and represent most of the main Autobot cast and a few of the Decepticons. Notably absent are Strongarm and Steeljaw, however! Joining RID in this promotion will be an assortment of My Little Pony toys representing Hasbro's other major brand. Click through for an image of the RID toys!
Third Party
Three days left on in the Lost Protectors Kickstarter, and we have pictures of the painted prototypes of Desolataur, D-Mon and D-Throne from the Play With This Too Facebook page. Pledge now if you plan to get these!
RID 2015
Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has posted their preorder listings for the third wave of Robots In Disguise Warrior-class figures, including new molds Sideswipe and Jazz! The pair are up for preorder for $35.99 for the set, and both look pretty decent at the Almost-Deluxe pricepoint. Keep reading to see!
Age of Extinction
Cinematic Universes are a Thing right now, with Marvel and Star Wars leading the way. Now, according to Deadline, Paramount is looking at their biggest movie property with an eye towards more varied (and frequent) releases. To that end they're enlisting writer Akiva Goldsman, whose credits range from the drama A Beautiful Mind to the well-received TV series Fringe ...to Batman Forever and Batman and Robin. This should be interesting. The story also hints that Michael Bay may unsurprisingly be returning for Transformers 5 after his current movie project - or at least that TF5 won't go ahead until that project is complete. Keep reading for more details!
Generation 1
MP-18B MASTERPIECE BLUESTREAK The new MP-18B Bluestreak lives up to his name! He transforms from robot to a Nissan Fairlady 280Z-T and stands nearly 6 tall in robot mode. Bluestreak is made of die-cast and plastic components, comes with his laser rifle and is listed for $79.99.
 
Third Party
Site sponsor TFSource has let us know they've added listings for Perfect Effect's upcoming Perfect Combiner products. PC-03 adds a new chest and a head for Superion that can be converted between toy or cartoon based appearances, and PC-04 gives a new head and torso parts for Menasor to improve the function of a popular fan configuration for the torso mode. Both sets are listed at $32.99 and expected to arrive in June. Check them both out right here.
RID 2015
A slew of new RID product images are coming our way via Amazon Canada and UK toy distributor Wind Designs! Included are Hyperchange Steeljaw, Mini-Con Deployers and Mini-Con Slipstream, Mega One-Step Changer Optimus Prime, and Super Bumblebee. While none of the items currently show as in-stock, it's a nice opportunity to see some new shots of some of the figures we saw last month at New York Toy Fair. Keep reading to see!
RID 2015
In a rare move, TakaraTomy has posted the second episode of the Japanese dub of Robots In Disguise, known there as Transformers Adventure, to YouTube in its entirety without region-restriction. There are no subtitles, but if you're curious about the Japanese character voices or have seen the US version of episode 2 and just want to compare, this is an unusual opportunity to do so through official channels. Keep reading to see!
MasterPiece
Toynes.jp has posted its weekly toy sales rankings, and it pegs an interesting item in the top position. Leading its "comprehensive" Top 5 is Masterpiece Star Saber which with its 3/21 release date just barely made the reporting period from March 16th to 22nd. Following it in the list are two items from the current Super Sentai series, and two Yokai Watch items. While we can't be sure if this counts delivered presales, on the spot purchases, or both, it's not hard to imagine Star Saber was a big seller on its release weekend and may have been the biggest of all!
MasterPiece
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We talk about Combiner Wars Quickslinger and Brake-Neck (REALLY Slingshot and Wildrider) which were just unveiled, TFSS Tarantulus, MP25 Tracks, FP Volar NOT Swoop, new FP Function X recolors, and, of course, Masterpiece Exhaust. All that and more!


Generations
Our sponsor BigBadToyStore has just let us know they've added a preorder listing for Leader Class Generations Ultra Magnus. This figure has been highly anticipated since its reveal at Toy Fair, featuring IDW design influences including a Minimus Ambus figure that can ride inside the robot. Along with the listing we've got new stock photos of the toy. You can check those out and get the link to the product page in the full article!
Collectors Club
In the coming weeks, pop culture enthusiasts from around the world will be able to register for BotCon 2015 and purchase the Frank Welker VIP experience package. This package will contain ONE autograph from Frank Welker, ONE professional picture with Frank Welker, an EXCLUSIVE MEGATRON art print, an EXCLUSIVE MEGATRON souvenir pin and VIP seating at his moderated panel on Saturday.
Generation 1
Hasbro's website has posted new images of the Platinum Edition Blitzwing & Astrotrain! Blitzwing looks just about as good in tank mode as he did as a robot or jet... and so does Astrotrain. These recolors really have been fascinating to see, and I can't want to see if I can ask more about them at BotCon this year. Keep reading to see!
