From chuckdawg1999: "Better late than never! Soundwave has been a bit hard to find in the US, but I was able to finally get the figure. Like most repaints/retools there are some things better on Soundwave and some things that are worse. Overall what I liked about Blaster, I like about Soundwave and I'm happy to have what I feel is a proper update to the G1 toy." Keep reading to see the review!
Don't get too excited, because while the first toys from The Last Knight have in fact been found on shelves at a Toyworld in Melbourne by Paulbot from the Ozformers community, it's only the Titan Changer Optimus and Bumblebee. It's almost certain this was a stocking error, as we are just a bit less than two months from the official Merchandise Day for the line, April 24th. And it sounds like it's not Toyworld's first such accident with a movie's toyline, either. But now we can see the wheels are definitely in motion and these toys are beginning the long journey to retailers around the world even now.
Alfes2010 has posted a few early shots of Masterpiece Grapple on his Higekuma toy blog. MP-35 releases in Japan this weekend, and these first few shots give us a look how it turned out. A brief look at the alternate colors helmet is provided, as well as a vehicle shot and more of the "standard" robot configuration - including one with Unite Warriors Devastator! Less for scale, and more for Master Builder purposes, naturally. We'll be expecting to see more soon, but for now you can check these images out, mirrored below!

The UK toy retailer Smyths has posted a listing for the Tiny Turbo Changers, the new transforming blind-bagged figures revealed last weekend at Toy Fair 2017! Thanks to these listings, we know a couple of new things about these, including their size and an interesting detail about their packaging that could hint at a Transformers: The Last Knight mobile game. Keep reading to see!
Autobase Aichi has shared an image of MP-34 Cheetor's Hasbro Asia bonus! We've changed over from coins to small metal figurines this year, and Cheetor comes with figure #2, Optimus Primal! Likewise, site sponsor Robotkingdom has added a photo of #3, Ultra Magnus, to the preorder page for MP Grapple. Keep reading to see both images mirrored here!
In short order after finally becoming available in online retail, the first in-store sightings in the US have popped up for Leader Class Sixshot. The first report from Megablah shows Sixshot in a Target in an unspecified location in California - small area to check, we know. Subsequently we've heard of at least one other sighting in a Portland, OR Target. It looks like Target is the place to check right now, especially on the west coast. And if you're wondering if it's worth getting out looking, check out our review of Titans Return Sixshot! Keep reading for photo proof of the California sighting.
With the official release date just about upon us, we'll be sure to see plenty of Masterpiece Cheetor in the next little while. But in the meantime we've got a few extra photos to share with you offering some direct comparisons you might be interested in. Mainly looking at Cheetor's relative scale with MP Optimus Primal, which might be indicating Cheetor to be a tiny bit bigger than the show models had it, but generally right. And as an extra, Alfes2010 snapped a photo of MP Cheetor next to the original toy ...mostly imitating Mutant Head action, but it's a good look at both ends of the Cheetor spectrum.

Major online retailers such as site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store are now receiving Titans Return Voyager Wave 3! We've got our first crack at two entirely new molds in this wave, each of which will later become a Triplechanger. So who's in the wave and what do we know about these? Read on to find out!
On Twitter, TakaraTomy has shared a video presentation that gives a history (in brief) of the Transformers Masterpiece line. While the majority of the video spends time focused on the history of the series, toward the end it stops for a bit on the upcoming new version of Megatron, and gives a good look at its Key to Vector Sigma accessory and energy mace, with cartoon clips to give them their context. We've taken some screencaps from that segment, and you can find those and an embed of the Twitter video in the full post below!
Look at that thing! Those guys are tiny, and it looks so good! LG-41 Leo Prime (occasionally known as LioConvoy) is TakaraTomy's release of the Titans Return Alpha Trion mold, swapping out Sovereign for the Sentinel Prime head. Happily, it looks like the gun stays tabbed to the top of lion mode properly, which was a problem for Trion. Remold, better QC, or is @Alfes2010 just that patient a photographer? Keep reading to have a look at his photos, mirrored here for your convenience!
Hasbro has filed for a new trademark with the US Patent Office for a new logo: a hybrid Autobot/Decepticon logo! It's not the first time we've seen such a mark... but this one has the added twist of using the Movie Series versions of the familiar Autobot and Decepticon Insignia. We'd heard that "Reveal Your Shield" will be a promotion for Transformers: The Last Knight, so perhaps this is its logo? Keep reading to see!

The retailer-oriented part of Toy Fair 2017 rolls on, and vendors were treated to 55 minutes' worth of footage from Transformers: The Last Knight! Mark Wahlberg & Josh Duhamel were interviewed afterwards, and the Associated Press has posted videos of samples of each interview. Click through to hear what Duhamel thought about the footage and learn about Wahlberg's on-set injuries!
Premier Edition is the "Generations Series" of The Last Knight, though with a bit more of a "Black Series" flavor, to take a categorization hint from Star Wars. But from the early leaks of the Deluxe assortment it was clear that it wasn't actually the premiere of every toy in Premier. Half of Deluxe wave 1 is reuses from Age of Extinction, and Voyager Grimlock takes the ratio farther. With Toy Fair's reveals now, we want to look and see how much farther this might go. Keep reading...
As we come up on the last weekend of the month, it's time for new toys in Japan, and highly anticipated on that score is Masterpiece Cheetor. Twitter user @ZEAMTIGER has already gotten hold of Cheetor and has been sending out a variety of photos giving us our first real in hand look. Though right now no comparisons with MP Optimus Primal are shown, you can see Cheetor side by side with the Generations molds of Rattrap and Rhinox, showing how one scales well and the other... doesn't. The photos are mirrored in the album below, click through to take a look now!
