Transformers News and Reviews
Generation 1
Looks like TakaraTomy's own @TFYUKI is going to have a case of the MP Star Sabers with Unite Warriors Superion, as he's now posted another new image showing the Combiner Wars mold with the legs arranged G1 style. In this configuration you kill most of the knee articulation but... G1, accuracy, or something. Yay? Keep reading to judge for yourself!
Rescue Bots
Shout! Factory has posted a listing for a new Rescue Bots DVD titled Rescue Bots: Dinobots! Containing 5 episodes and retailing for $13.93, the disc will be released on August 25th. Keep reading to see all the details!
Collectors Club
The Facebook page DT Learns To Shoot has posted in-hand images of the upcoming Collector's Club Subscription Service 3.0 LioConvoy figure! Previously referenced in the US toyline as Leo Prime, the Japanese Beast Wars character is now a remold of Generations Orion Pax. Keep reading to see!
Generations
TFYuki's latest object of affection may well be the Unite Warriors Superion, a new photo of which he's tweeted this evening (or afternoon, relative to JST). The photo which shows production color samples of the five toys has the team in mid-process of forming up to Superion, but oddly gives a really good look at the individual decos this way. It's quite distinct from the Hasbro Combiner Wars instances, but still carries a few of their unique traits. Click through and have a look.

Third Party
The official BadCube page has been updated with testshot images of their soon to be released OTS-05 Claymore, OTS-06 Hypno, and OTS-07 Kickbutt figures. Their homages to the G1 Inscecticons are looking nice in cartoon colors. There is mention in their post of this being the "First Color Scheme," which likely means they are going to offer some variant editions as well. Read on to see the figures for more details.
Third Party
Fanstoys continues their series of transforming robot dinosaur figures with their FT-07 STOMP figure. This is N. 4 in their Iron Dibots line, following Scoria, Soar, and Sever. Here, we get some first looks at the gray prototype images of homage to the G1 Sludge sludge character shown in robot and alternate Dino modes. Its looking quite good with that nice detailing on the alternate mode. Read on to see the images for more info.
Generation 1 Japan
Third Party
Fans have sought out a way to get this for years, and it seems it will finally be within reach. A figure modeled after the Signal Lancer character from Transformers Cybertron will be produced by Nonnef, based on a design by TreadshotA1. Signal Lancer was notable by having the alt mode of a traffic light, a novelty that drove a desire for a toy, which never officially happened. Alert Knight will join Nonnef's lineup of products later this year. Click through to see the computer render image!
MasterPiece
This reissue of a reissue of MP-12 is an asia exclusive (excludes Japan) and features an exclusive bonus that is yet to be revealed. Best of all this reissue comes at a lower cost and were passing along the savings to those who preorder so be sure to get your preorder in early!
RID 2015
The people at AfterBuzz TV have been following the Transformers: Robots In Disguise 2015 cartoon closed with lots of updates and interviews with the people behind the show. They have been posting a series of these videos that talk with the producers, actors and designers on what makes the cartoon more than meet's the eye. Read on to see most of the videos they have posted.
 
Generation 1 Japan
Robot Kingdom ROBOTKINGDOM.COM Newsletter #1271 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!
RID 2015
As it was with Prime and Dark of The Moon Cyberverse, the Legion Class RID toys are a good way to build a big collection of characters quickly. But it seems this line may be falling towards same-character recolors rather than expanding the lineup. Robot Kingdom has posted a preorder listing for a new Legion wave only featuring reships, and "Alpine Sideswipe" and "Night Ops Bumblebee" as its new entries. Autobase Aichi has RID app screenshots to illustrate what these probably are in absence of actual photos, and you can click through to see those.
RID 2015
Even though RID wave 3 hasn't quite made it to US distribution yet, the Tagoal photo blog has gotten hands on a pair of the wave's new figures, Jazz and Sideswipe, and posted very nice galleries of both toys. Whether or not these photos will endear you to the toys will probably depend a lot on how you feel towards the line's design sense, they'll certainly give you a good idea of what to expect. We've mirrored a small selection of the photos, keep reading to see those and get links back to the full galleries!
RID 2015
Robot Kingdom has listed a new preorder page for the fourth wave of the 2015 RID Warrior assortment. As well as reships of figures from waves 2 and 3, wave 4 seems to be adding in the pricepoint's first redecos, bringing back the Bumblebee and Grimlock molds in new colors. We don;t have photos yet, but based on images grabbed from the RID app by Autobase Aichi, it looks like Grimlock could be returning in G1-based colors, while Bumblebee gets a deco similar to the "stealth" recolor from Transformers Prime. Click through and have a look.
Generations
Golden Week, Japan's week-long holiday is currently underway, but it seems that TakaraTomy's Hisahi Yuki is choosing to observe the time a little differently. Celebrating "Green Week", he's spent the early hours of his Monday tweeting shots of green figures such as the Energon Constructicons, as a lead to what he really wants to show: The first silhouetted teaser for Combiner Wars Devastator, stamped with a big Coming Soon. A Unite Warriors Devastator should be no surprise at all, and until it can be shown in full, all we really have to wonder is, what will be different?
Generation 1 Japan
Hayato Sakamoto contributed his talents to issue #39 of More Than Meets The Eye, in the process rolling numerous Japanese-fiction-originated character in to the issue's crowds. Among them was a slightly different looking version of Liokaiser. Today, Sakamoto has posted the original concept art that was used as the model for the comic appearance, which differs from the final appearance of the toy and Victory series model. Click through to give it a look!
Third Party
Retro Robot Radio recently got a chance to review the painted prototype of the Play With This Too Desolataur action figure. You can see it live here.
MasterPiece
TAG Hobby has a good clear image of MP Tracks and Road Rage side-by-side! Road Rage, as you can see, has been given markedly less boxy upper arms and thighs and a smaller head... and in fact seems to be a millimeter or two shorter than Tracks overall. The extent to which Hasbro and TakaraTomy can implement variations to a given mold grows more impressive all the time. Keep reading to see!
