A video has been posted showing the process of upgrading Combiner Wars Devastator with parts from a testshot of the X2Toys add on. Interestingly while providing almost entire new forearms and hands, the kit still calls for the original wrist plates to be used with the new parts. Otherwise everything seems a simple matter of snapping pieces on during the combination process. The video was originally posted to the Miaopai service, but we've mirrored it to Youtube for easy viewing. Click through to watch!
INTO THE WILD! The DINOBOTS engaged in some of the most brutal missions of the war-which made them damaged goods in the peace. Now, a mission to change the face of CYBERTRON offers a chance for something they never imagined... redemption.
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna is bringing us another great look at the newest shipped piece from the third Transformers Figure Subscription Service, Classics G2 Starscream. This figure is the subject of a misassembly warning issued recently, the result being that the wings can't properly be folded without risk of breaking the toy, and no replacement will be made. This aside, the G2 look has been captured well, and this is supposedly the final outing from the Club for this mold. Click through to check out the photos!
Thanks to sponsor HLJ Japan, we have lots of new color photos and a bit of information on MP-29 Shockwave that appears to have a localized sub-name of "Laserwave". These new official images show the Masterpiece class figure in much better details. Finally, some good looks at the many features of the robot modes as well as some good clear shots of the alternate laser gun mode and the accessories that include jet-pack, tubing, and two sets of hands with laser for robot mode. Read on to see the images posted in the gallery for this figure that will be arriving some time in March 2016.
The surprise reveal at the NYCC 2015 Transformers Generations panel was the second Voyager for Titans Return, Sentinel Prime. Since it was unveiled at the panel after the bulk of official images were released, we had to wait a bit, but the same big, clear product renders are here for Sentinel now, and it's looking really good - and is sure to look just as good as the Astrotrain to come, even if it loses its lovely orange in the process.

posted a quick guide to figuring out which version of Combiner Wars Motormaster is on shelves near you! The wave 4 version with the remolded hip ratchets will be in boxes embossed with the number 52231
to the left of the Hasbro logo on the back of the package. This revision doesn't add any extra ratcheting points to the hips, but realigns them so that the figure can stand in less awkward positions. Click through to see some example photos!
Hisashi Yuki has posted a couple shots of LG-16 Slipstream to Twitter! In the first, she encounters her RID namesake, the Autobot Mini-Con known as Slipstream! In the second, she's upstaged by Legends Armada Thundercracker. Keep reading to check them out!
It was only a matter of time, with samples floating around in Asia it's almost a surprise it took this long before a video was made for the still officially unreleased Masterpiece Tracks. Youtube user Pancrazi has uploaded a video showing Tracks, showing off the accessories, the looks of the vehicle mode, and even some previously unrevealed details about how the robot mode is designed that might cast the figure in a slightly different light. We've got the video embedded, so click through and check it out!
Stanley Cheung on Facebook has shared some new photos of Master Made's Diabolus Rex prototype, which was shown at a retailer's booth at NYCC this past week. This round of photos gives us some different looks at the figure from extra angles, as well as taking a couple close shots of the little Megatron buddy figure that will be included. Our thanks to the uncredited original source for taking these new shots! Click through to check them out.
Beelzeboss has posted on their Weibo page to give some updates on their kit to make Combiner Wars Optimus better resemble IDW's character design. They're released a color image of the added parts on Optimus, and not stopping there have revealed a kit colored for eHobby Grand Scourge, Unleashed Fury, and a teaser for a Nova Prime, Fanatic Lord to be used with Battle Core Optimus. They also posted a photo of G1 Thunderclash between these reveals, perhaps implying an additional intent. Keep reading to see all three images.
TakaraTomy designer Yuya Onishi has posted his concept designs for the new Voyager-class Galvatron we saw at NYCC 2015! The art shows off all three modes of the triple changer, and makes that starfighter mode look even cooler than before. Keep reading to see it up close!
Wotafa on Youtube has posted a new video looking at an early sample of DX9's Tyrant unofficial Masterpiece Galvatron. While the Titans Return Voyager Galvatron seems to be giving some people pause, this video shows that this unofficial effort still has plenty to offer, and is looking like a very solid stab at the character. The video is of course fully in Japanese, but the visuals are very self-explanatory, giving a good overview of Tyrant through both modes and the surprisingly uncomplicated transformation. Keep reading to see the embedded video!
Platinum Edition Trypticon was a remarkable case of Hasbro leading the way on a G1 reissue of a toy TakaraTomy had not themselves touched. After some time had passed and speculation died down, we now have word that Trypticon will be sold in Japan. As a highly limited lottery item. The "USA Edition" Trypticon will be available for 300 lucky individuals chosen at random to purchase for 16,200 Yen this December, after a lottery entry period of about ten days starting this Tuesday. To all our hopeful Japanese readers, we wish you the best of luck!
We've got some new photos in of a project underway from a group calling themselves "Second Chance", showing what's said to be a Voyager-equivalent scale Shockwave based on the Fall of Cybertron design. Seen alongside its official Deluxe counterpart, it's clear the Second Chance figure is both taller and more substantially proportioned. And from weibo user citssd we have a look at an Optimus done up to the same scale. No release info is available currently, but these should be good news to people not quite satisfied with the FOC Generations line. Keep reading to see all the images.
TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki has posted a silhouette to Twitter showing off what appears to be a Unite Warriors version of Galvatronus! The Combiner Wars Voyager-class Cyclonus core is accompanied by the Deluxe Rook and Offroad molds for legs - sensible choices since neither have been released in Japan - and a pair of Aerialbot molds. The final deco for Galvatronus and the identities of his minions are unknown, but it's going to be fascinating to see. Read on to see the image!
New York Comic Con is pretty much over as far as Transformers news goes, but we're not quite done covering what did happen!

We have more than 60 new photos for you to check out covering mostly Titans Return, but also RID and Combiner Wars, so click through and check it out!
