There's only one `80s Triple-Changer that we've yet to get in the modern line: Broadside, the figure that changes from aircraft carrier to jet to robot. TFND has just posted an image to their Facebook page of a new Titans Return figure that looks very much to be a modern Broadside! The blue cockpit is correct, as is the general gray, red and dark gray color scheme. The earliest this could possibly be released is in the second 2017 wave, so this is quite an early find! Keep reading to see the photo.
Finally tonight is a look at Scourge from TakaraTomy's Legends line. While not as huge a difference as Blurr from its Hasbro counterpart, Scourge gains some much needed color and contrast variation. Once again Twitter users Alfes2010 and tagoal have provided some nice looks at this figure that do a good job highlighting its strengths versus the Titans Return release. And of course, we get to see the intentional but largely undocumented vehicle variation with the Titan Master attached to the main pylon. Keep reading to see the mirrored photos!
Next in our roundup of TakaraTomy Legends series figures for this month is Blurr. The Japanese release of this figure has been highly anticipated - and quickly presold out basically everywhere - due to its drastic deco differences from the Hasbro release. The photos from Alfes2010 and tagoal on Twitter show that it's turned out just as well as the publicity photos showed. There's even a side by side comparison included to demonstrate just how much has changed between releases. See that and more in the mirrored gallery below!
It's new toy day in Japan! We've got out of package shots from Twitter of this month's new Legends series releases thanks to users Alfes2010 and Tagoal. First up is TakaraTomy's use of the Legends-class Shockwave mold, paired with Cancer - that is, Titan Master Crashbash. Both are redecoed versus their original Hasbro releases to varying extents. Despite promotional images showing an improvised "seat" for Cancer, the two don't really interact. We've got photos mirrored below, so check them out now!
Fresh out of US online retail, we've got our first gallery for wave 2 of Deluxe Titans Return! We're starting with Chromedome, who is the most obviously similar to a prior toy. In this case it's the Dead End/Streetwise/etc mold family from which most of the toy's engineering is borrowed. However, don't let that mislead you, as this build sees all of those tricks refined just a bit, in to a very satisfying, solid product! Look forward to a full review coming soon, and for now check out our photo gallery with 123 images in the full article below!
Coming to us from Newsarama we have the first look at the full length preview for next week's issue of The Transformers
, #56. Originally intended to ship before this month's issue of More Than Meets The Eye
... well, sometimes things just don't work out. But this should hopefully bring everything together and up to speed, and be welcome by those who chose to wait and read the issues in the correct order! We have the preview mirrored in our gallery below, so click through to have a look.
Following our report sometime ago about the custom RED 8K camera that was created for the filmmaker for Michael Bay to use on his upcoming movie, "Transformers: The Last Knight." Well, who could be better to show off this marvel of technology, official dubbed "The Bayhem", than the director him, Michael Bay. Read on to see his video posted to Instagram of the camera and its features.
Blacklai has a new gallery on his blog showing off the just-released Masterpiece Delta Magnus! This figure represents the deco of Diaclone's Powered Convoy, seen briefly used in test animation in an early Transformers: The Movie trailer. Thanks to IDW assigning a specific identity to these colors, an easy opportunity was presented to turn another Diaclone alternate coloring in to a new Transformers character! We've mirrored a selection of photos showing off the highlights of the figure, which you can see below, and keep reading for a link to the original post.
Megatronia is a combiner figure made up of five female Transformers.
Megaempress is a voyager sized figure that transforms from robot to truck and wields a large axe. She makes up the main body of Megatronia.
Flowspade and Trickdiamond are deluxe sized figures that are each armed with powerful hand weapons. They both transform into speedsters and become the legs of Megatronia.
Making up the arms of Megatronia are two more deluxe sized figures, Lunaclub and Moonheart, each armed with large swords and both transform into helicopters.

Hisashi Yuki is promoting this month's new Transformers releases, tweeting out photos of Warrior Class Scorponok, seen with more detailed paint work than its Robots in Disguise counterpart, as well as Power Surge Sideswipe, the larger electronic simple-conversion instance of the character with one of those bizarre chest-adornment Mini-Con weapons. Both figures are part of this weekend's new releases, so expect them to become available at your import retailer of choice very soon. Click through to see all the photos!
With Hasbro's Computron not even in stock for two weeks, we're about to see the launch of Unite Warriors Computron which will hit Japanese retailers on August 27th. Some online stores have already gotten their supplies and begun filling preorders, while retailers elsewhere in the world won't be far behind! To make sure everyone knows, Hisashi Yuki has posted what will probably be the last early photo, with the assembled Computron posed alongside its box. You can check that image out below - keep reading!
By way of Previews World, we have news of a case revision you'll want to know about! Titans Return Deluxe wave 2 will have later shipments seeing the return of the wave 1 Deluxes, with one each of Hardhead, Scourge, Blurr, and Skullsmasher. These will ship alongside two each of Chromedome and Highbrow. Though it's often hard to predict how prevalent remix cases like this will be at general retail, it's probably a good idea to make sure to get Mindwipe and Wolfwire (Weirdwolf) as soon as you can. Might this feature Skullsmasher with improved joint tolerances? Or just be extra chance to army build Sweeps? Let's wait and find out!
Simon Furman has gotten in touch with us to talk about To The Death
, a new collaboration between Furman and fellow Transformers comics veteran Geoff Senior. While not directly Transformers-related, the digital comic is set to feature "a digital comic book saga set in Earths future that echoes the hard-edged sci-fi of Dragons Claws and Deaths Head (both of which we co-created) and some of the heavy mech of Transformers"
according to Furman. Keep reading for more info, art, and some preview pages!
