Transformers News and Reviews
Generations
The Collector's Club figures aren't the only exclusive Transformers to have fallen into the hands of eBayer lena81822 of late. Also in the seller's listings is Transformers Cloud Hellwarp! A Beast Wars II-inspired recolor of Generations Sky-Byte, Hellwarp is an upgrade of Skywarp (with Cloud appropriating Takara's version of Fall of Cybertron Skywarp to serve as that universe's version of the character). Shark Mode isn't shown, but there's a solid gallery of robot mode photos. Keep reading to see!
Collectors Club
Following our first look at Lio Convoy, we've also found a listing for Carzap giving us a comprehensive look at this figure's presumably final production state. This sample seems to lack the Kreon GB Blackrock accessory set tying the character to its incredibly obscure Block Town origins, but gives a good look at this figure which will ship as part of Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3 later this year. Keep reading to check out all the mirrored photos!
Collectors Club
Ebay seller lena81822 has turned up once again with a first in hand look at a new toy. The Orion Pax recolor Lio Convoy is due in the next few months as the yearly freebie figure given to everyone who has an active subscription to the Transformers Collectors Club. Notable on this sample, where the original mockup showed wide ornamental fins on the sides of the head, those are absent and appear as though they've been cut off after the head came out of the mold. The Club's problems with new head toolings seem like they might be coming around yet again! Click through to see the full mirrored gallery.
Generation 1 Japan
Greetings Sourcefans! This week we're excited to have several new preorders from Takara, including Transformers-Q, Transformers Adventure, and Transformers Unite - TU-01 Superion!

Third Party
Maketoys has posted teaser images and a brief description for a new line of figures titled Re:Master. The name and text seem to imply a "new scale," and puts heavy emphasis on the concept of scale in general. Current speculation is that the figures - interpretations of Chromedome, Hound, and Inferno shown only in silhouette- will be in the post-MP-10 Masterpiece scale, but nothing is known as of yet. Keep reading to see!
Age of Extinction
Transformers Asia has announced a new high-end movie Optimus Prime based on the Jetwing Optimus Prime mold that was previously exclusive to Japan. Ultimate Optimus Prime is a highly-painted version of that mold said to be "Loaded with Accessories and Weapons!" More details as they become available, but for now keep reading to check out the photo!
RID 2015
Amazon Japan has filled in lots of high res shots of the first batches of figures for the Transformers Adventure line, the branding for TakaraTomy's version of Robots in Disguise (2015), padded out with lots of figures from other lines. This batch covers from TAV-01 to -12 consisting of RID Warriors, a little Generations, Animated, and Transformers Prime, and TE-01 to -05, covering the initial RID One-Step Changers, Hyperchange Grimlock, and the garbage truck character created for Age of Extinction. We've got a lot of photos, so keep reading and check them out!
MasterPiece
Amazon Japan has posted a series of new photos with their preorder page for Masterpiece G2 Bumblebee, coming out this summer. The shiny gold version of Bumblebee will come with a jetpack accessory derived from the G1 cartoon episode Dinobot Island, as well as having the previously Amazon exclusive toy-accurate faceplate in addition to the two regular face options. Click through to check out the new pictures!
Generations
Ozformers member Bidoofdude put 2 and 2 together concerning two previously-rumored Generations Legends, and got a promising response from Hasbro! The known Combiner Wars Legends-class figures skip numbers 11-17, and so an email was sent to Hasbro asking if the previous Walmart leaks Gnaw with Gnash and Brawn with Mudslinger might be among their numbers. The answer is less than concrete, but more than maybe - keep reading to see!
Third Party
The amusingly named Xipoo company is reportedly manufacturing block kits that are in the vague style of Kre-O Microcombiners, but fully brick-built instead of minifigure based. A series of five kits features dinosaurs that can change to robot models, and a full set can be rebuilt to make "Ultimate Warrior Dino King". We have a few sales listing images mirrored, and while we might not recommend trying to purchase these, they're an entertaining look at the more creative than usual side of the knockoff trade, much like the lego-style Angry Bird Transformers figures we reported back in December.
 
Angry Birds
Comic Book Resources has brought out the full size preview for the third issue of the Angry Birds Transformers miniseries a bit early for us this week. But that means that everyone enjoying this story that's been described by RAC as a fun, Saturday morning cartoon style experience in his reviews of the first and second issue. You can click through and check out the preview now, and then come back late tomorrow night when we bring you the first review anywhere of the third issue!
Third Party
Badcube has debuted their newest upcoming products this afternoon, taking on a trio of figures based on the Insecticons. Badcube says they should scale well to their other products Brawny and the upcoming Wardog, but they don't offer any objective size reference so far. But, they say these figures should release around the same time as Wardog, so they may not be very far off. Click through to check out the photos!
Conventions Center
Pete Sinclair of Fun Publications was recently interviewed over video, and in the process seems to have let a bit too much fall in frame. Based on an enhanced screencap by well known fan Monzo, we've identified and highlighted the toys that are visible. The image is low-res, but with some work defining the edges the forms of the figures can be made out well enough. Of course this is likely a spoiler for some of this year's convention toys, so please keep that in mind before proceeding. For full info, keep reading!
Generations
The collage of character art seen prior to the UK Toy Fair tipped us off to the existence of a Legends Rodimus from the Blackjack mold, and today we have confirmation and pictures! Autobase Aichi has dug up listings from Hasbro's German website showing us Legends Rodimus, and Legends Skywarp, the anticipated fourth use of the Starscream mold. Rodimus features new sculpting for the face, and while the package shot confirms him as part of a combiner group, unfortunately which one is still unknown apart from the team being identified with a silver stripe. Click through to check out the pictures!
Age of Extinction
Following up on our previous report of 3A Toys doing their take on Dark of The Moon's redesign of Megatron in in a higher-end, non-transforming figure, we have more details about the upcoming item thanks to decemberist. In addition to a full accounting of standard accessories, we've found out about what surprising items will be exclusive to one retailer, as well as the price you can expect. Keep reading for the full list!
Generations
As you may have gathered from the reveal of Hot Spot and Groove, the official Transformers brand app has finally received its update, which means voting for the Fan Built Combiner has begun! So far the available polling choices include torso + weapon, limb slots, and faction. Once the physical choices are settled on, we expect more options like colors, names, and other character concepts to become available for selection. Click through to see more!
Generations
After Defensor was revealed on the two covers of Windblade #2 this past week, we now have our very first look at Legends Class Groove, and Hot Spot himself. Taking the form of computer design models, these appear as representative examples of the style of toys that could contribute to the Fan Built Combiner in the new Transformers app. It's notable that Hot Spot's base design is vague enough to credibly be redressed as an Onslaught at a later point, as we speculated recently. Click through to check it out!
Age of Extinction
Via an Ebay seller we have some new looks at the soon to be released two pack of Human Alliance Barricade and Soundwave. Human Alliance Soundwave was limited in release originally, though this edition may not be much easier to get due to its high base price and being an Asian market exclusive item. And despite this, neither toy appear to have any significant deco additions over their individual releases. Click through to check out the photos.
