Transformers News and Reviews
Generations
Hasbro has posted its product page for Leader Class Thundercracker with official images and a product description! A seemingly chrome-free remold of Legends Jetfire, Thundercracker seems to come with most but not all of Jetfire's gear, with the iconic booster pack sensibly excluded. Keep reading to see!
Universe
Jagex's Transformers Universe game has run the course of its short life, but the project had a lot of art designed for it, and the artists that contributed have been posting their work for all to see. We have a range of pieces from Oliver Miles and Sam Beattie including elements that never had a chance to be used in the game. Adam Turnbull has also posted a few video clips to his Vimeo account including function demos and cinematic elements, which we've got embedded below. Click through to check out everything!
Generations
2Danomite has followed up his first round of photos with some shots of Motormaster configured for Menasor, although three-fifths of the combiner still consists of Aerialbots for now. But this notably gives us a first chance to see the remolding for the inner combined-mode chest which up until now has always been concealed under Blackjack in the promotional photos. We believe the outer chest doors may have changes as well, but we're still waiting to get a look at those. Meanwhile, click through and check out the new pictures!
Generations
Twitter user @2Danomite2 has posted images of his just-arrived Voyager Motormaster! The figure is looking good, and Daniel says that he ordered the case from Entertainment Earth. If so, we can hopefully expect preorders to be filled soon from other online retailers. Keep reading to see the photos!

KRE-O
From SamsungHK we have a batch of new photos showing off Soundwave, part of a two-pack coming up in the new Kre-O Battlechangers series of transforming figure kits. While we don't have photos of Ratchet, the other side of this set, we do see Soundwave comes with a full set of little buddies in the form of Ravage and Laserbeak mini-builds, and Rumble and Frenzy represented by the smaller scale Kreons. The photos even show a way that they can all incorporate with Soundwave in both modes. Keep reading and check it all out!
RID 2015
Autobase Aichi has posted images of new characters previously revealed by TFW2005 as appearing in a recent update to the RID smartphone game! Included are Warrior class Sideswipe and Jazz, One-Step Optimus Prime, Drift, Fracture, and Thunderhoof as well as Legion-class Fixit and Underbite! It's good to see more Decepticons in the line, even if personally I'd prefer to see them in the Warrior class. Odds are good we'll see these figures at New York Toy Fair 2015 in a couple weeks. Until then, keep reading to see the screenshots!
Legends
Hisashi Yuki has once again posted an image of the upcoming Masterpiece Star Saber, but this time the V-Star seems to be giving Arcee, Windblade, and Chromia a lift. Most notable about the photo is the fact that Arcee sadly uses the open hands which are not very good at holding her accessories - you can see in the photo how far her gun sticks out of her hand. All three figures in what Yuki seems to refer to as the "Woman Robot" series are due to be released in Japan on Valentine's Day, February 14th. Keep reading to see for yourself!
Generations
After being delayed more than once, it seems the rather late fifth issue of IDW's The Transformers vs GI Joe will finally be hitting shops during the month of February. Comics Alliance has released the preview for this issue a bit early, so we finally get to see a bit of what comes after issue 4's use of "weapons-grade magenta." Comics Alliance reported it would ship alongside More Than Meets The Eye #37 on 2/4, but John Barber has since verified on Twitter it will ship on 2/11. ...possibly with MTMTE #38. Click through for the mirrored preview pages and a copy of the solicitation blurb!
Third Party
Kapow Toys has gotten hold of our first look at Badcube's Warpath-derived figure Wardog in what will hopefully be its final plastic colors. Having reached the stage of production-color testshot, we get to see Wardog in the traditional Warpath red, which looks very nice on the figure. While we'd like to see the robot in color soon, the vehicle teaser is more than enough to catch our interest at the moment. Keep reading to see the full size image.
Third Party
Site sponsor TFSource has received an album full of new pictures of Toyworld's Devilstar. This large figure based on Astrotrain is looking excellent in all three modes and makes an impressive show of how much it conceals the elements of its unused vehicle mode in both forms along with a nicely styled robot. TFSource is expecting these in stock soon, although the current January estimate might not be very likely at this point. Click through and check out the mirrored photos!
 
Generations
ComicsAlliance has just posted an interview with Mairghread Scott, writer of Windblade, about the upcoming Combiner Wars crossover! Revealed is the length of the crossover- six issues over the course of three months - and the fact that Windblade is going to continue on as a book after its conclusion and that Scott has longterm plans for the series and character. Scott also drops hints about a character she's wanted to write for ages making an appearance... Keep reading for excerpts and a link to the full interview!
Age of Extinction
Transformers Asia has posted a large image to their Facebook page showing off everything that comes with Ultimate Optimus Prime! Based on the TakaraTomy Jetwing Optimus Prime, itself a further modification of Revenge of the Fallen Leader-class Optimus Prime, this version of the toy seems to come with everything that was ever included with any version of that figure plus a new "Knuckle" attachment. Prime now has spiked knuckles for all his robot-eviscerating hijinx! Keep reading to see for yourself!
RID 2015
By way of Toonzone reporter HellCat, we've found out the start date for the new Robots in Disguise cartoon in locations served by Cartoon Network's UK arm. A press release sent by Cartoon Network UK reportedly included the same episode summaries and information we've been hearing for some time, and then revealed that the show would begin broadcasting on Saturday, March 7th, and will continue to air every weekend at 10:30am and 6:30pm. Will this end up being before US airing begins? We'll just have to wait and see!
Rescue Bots
When the previously-unknown Rescue Bots Blurr arrived at Hong Kong retail along with Salvage's presumed wavemate Optimus Prime, there was some concern that the garbage truck bot might have been delayed or cancelled. This doesn't seem to be the case, as Salvage has now been found as US retail by ShinHadouConvoy of the 2005 forums! Whether all three figures are in the same wave or not remains to be seen, but it seems likely at first glance. Keep reading to see the photo, and we'll have more info on this spotty wave as we get it!
Legends
The Higekuma Toy Blog has posted an extensive gallery of photos of the first half of Legends LG-08, Swerve and Phaser! A recolor of Generations Legends-class Swerve's US Mini-Con Flanker, Phaser looks at first glance to be in a more traditional space-shuttle white, but there was a second reason for that: Phaser's gun mode has been painted to look as much as possible like My First Blaster, the remedial training gun given to Swerve in the pages of More Than Meets The Eye! Keep reading for a sampling of photos and a link to the Higekuma Toy Blog so you can see them all!
Collectors Club
On the Collectors Club Twitter account today, Fun Publications made a shockingly long overdue statement. Once G2 Starscream, the second of two uses of the Classics Seeker mold in Figure Subscription 3 has been produced, they have no further plans to utilize the figure or its derivatives. While there are still many potential decos that fans of the mold would eagerly accept, it seems that they will go unfulfilled. Perhaps the Fall of Cybertron equivalent mold will find itself filling those shoes going forward? Keep reading to see the original tweet.
Third Party
In that ever-wacky arena of unofficial parts for unofficial toys, we have new testshot photos of an upgrade package for the Revolver figure by Fansproject derived from Roadbuster. Made by "JS Industries", this replaces the armor units Fansproject provided with a set of recolors, and attempts to expand on their functionality. Seen here in an extremely awkward "drone" mode, it will break down in to weapons and armor for a Revolver figure. Click through to see all the photos.
Generations
While security has reportedly increased around the Hasbro exhibit at the Toy Fair event taking place in Germany this week following the leaked partial images of Devastator, we've been fortunate enough to receive first-hand reports from a person who attended the show. The information was spread over multiple posts and pages of a TFW thread, so we've collected and condensed it for quick reading. Click through and check it out!
