The Lost Light is on lockdown. The crazed mnemosurgeon Sunder is on the loose, and the only thing standing between him and his intended victim Skids are a handful of Autobots who intend to stop him - or, like Tailgate, don't know what's going on... 'Speak, Memory!' Part 2
is written by James Roberts with art by Hayato Sakamoto (coordination by Phase6) and colors by Joana Lafuente. Click here to continue to the review!
John DeLuna has also shared tonight some pictures from the Club magazine featuring membership premium figure Ramjet, and Club Store exclusive Skywarp, both based on the Generations Armada Starscream tooling. The image of Ramjet gives a good look at the new face sculpt, plus the deco giving it the look of a glowing mouth. And we also get a look at a mockup of the packaging for Skywarp, taking heavily after classic Armada packaging. Keep reading to see both pictures!
Apparently the attention seeking leakers have been listening to fan complaints and have now responded by releasing a new version of the partial Combiner Wars Computron art in full color. Perhaps the next step will be showing off the other half or even the entire piece! Or we could just wait for Toy Fair or another official
channel to show us Computron. But if you can't wait to get another peek at this upcoming set, click through and check out the new picture.
As promised some while back, the newest TFCC magazine issue contains a preview for the fifth iteration of the Transformers Figure Subscription Service, which was announced even before the fourth had all its production samples revealed. Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has tweeted out a photo of the preview page, showing two of the upcoming figures. Unsurprisingly there's a reuse of the Oilmaster Pretender shell created for Botcon 2015's boxset, and a not-so outside the box reuse of Generations Arcee. Keep reading to see what they are!
We will take a look at the Transformers Planet of Junk Clash Platinum Edition collectors set.
As always the painting on the front is great looking. This set says it is commemorating the 30th anniversary of Transformers the Movie. It is supposed to represent the Planet of Junk scenes from the movie, but the scene depicted in the painting never occurred in the movie. Read on to see the review below.
Thanks to zmultiplier on weibo who has shared a new image of what appears to be Titans Return Astrotrain, the Transformers Triple Changer. The image has been disgusied with some editing and inverting, to keep us guessing or something. We have included the reverted image and mirrored with the original below. Read on to see the Titans Return Astrotrain Image below.
Gcreation China has posted an image of the first two figures of a projected IDW-style line in Masterpiece scale! Pricing is not yet known, but in the comments it's explained that the figures scale to MP-10 Optimus Prime and MP Prowl, suggesting that MP-10's trailer will be compatible with the new IDW Prime. It's also mentioned that "cool weapons" are in development for the figures, and that more figures are being planned for the line. Keep reading to see the image!
Maz from TFSquareOne has spent some time photographing Seraphicus Prominon, Mastermind's version of Nova Prime and posting about it to his Twitter. The figure inspired a bit of recoil when it was revealed exactly how expensive getting the full package of figure plus trailer/armor would end up being. With this we can finally start to get a sense of whether it's worth the hefty price tag. We've copied some of Maz's photos and collected his comments on the figure, and you can check it all out below!
The Winter Wonderfest 2016 is over, but it certainly didn't go without some good stuff to show. In the time since we reported last night, more photos have been posted from the event showing more detail on Masterpiece Optimus Primal, such as the furry appearance derived entirely through paint apps. We also have more detail shots of Blast Off and the Combaticons, including another look at their color promo poster, and new tonight we have showings from Prime 1 Studios with an array of movie-inspired statues, and another appearance of Heroes of Steel Optimus. Click through to see it all, along with a full list of photo credits!
Garatron has posted testshot images to Weibo showing of the second in their Gand of Devils line! Following up on their impressive IDW Thunderwing will be G.o.D.-02 Galaxy Destroyer, a take on Unicron very, very similar to the unproduced Beast Wars Neo version that we've all seen photos for over the years. While not an exact match, it's close enough that you'd almost hope a grayscale version is produced just for fun. Click through to see more!
- we now have a clearer look at the Bruticus image from @chromeless, to go along with the original Combaticon group shot from Wonderfest by Twitter user @gadepon. The source images are still not the greatest, but some added detail can be seen versus the even tinier and "DO NOT COPY" stamped retailer images that recently went out. In particular, Swindle and Vortex both show the split-color combiner plugs seen on Zombie War Breakdown from the Grand Galvatron set, in order to help the body colors be a little more source accurate. Click through and have a look!
Unfortunately it looks like we haven't seen the last of the grey Bruticus sample just yet. The TakaraTomy booth at Wonderfest is using that as their display piece, but all isn't lost. From the display, Twitter user @chromeless has gotten some good close up shots of Blast Off from all sides, giving us a nicely detailed look at this new figure. Also shown is the new rotor piece for Vortex and how it works in robot and combined forms. Keep reading to see it all!
From Twitter users @akaichikushou and @chromeless we have the first photo of Masterpiece Optimus Primal in color. Obviously a hand painted sample at this stage, the display piece should reflect the intended final appearance, plus or minus small variances in finish. There are some inconsistencies to the TV CGI model that may or may not get tweaked along the road to final production, but this is a very solid looking representation even as it sits right now. Click through to take a look and keep with us for more Wonderfest updates!
539Designs, one of the designers who contribute to X-Transbots has posted an update to their DeviantArt account today. The print form of the just-released Arkose's instructions are apparently missing a panel depicting a portion of the transformation process. The missing portion has been published to DeviantArt along with the immediate prior and subsequent steps to show where this part is meant to take place. We've mirrored this image and cropped out the relevant panel as well for higher detail. Keep reading to get the info for this unofficial Beachcomber!
We're still looking for corroboration on this, so file firmly in rumor territory for now, but it may be that the long-anticipated Masterpiece Jazz might be on the way. On Twitter, snakas of Autobase Aichi tweeted a silhouetted image depicting Jazz with the MP-31 text. Again, we're unsure of an original source for the information, but with Wonderfest happening today in Japan we're not ruling out the possibility of this as a reveal. We expect to have more Wonderfest coverage to share later tonight, so keep watching for that and more updates about the possible Masterpiece Jazz!
The second season of Robots in Disguise will be starting up in the United States earlier than you might have expected! TV listings site Zap2It now shows entries for the first three episodes of the new season of the cartoon, and has titles listed for the first two. The new season kicks off with "Overloaded, Part 1", likely getting the ball rolling with the introduction of the Cyclone Mini-Cons. We also have the air dates for the first three episodes, so keep reading to find out when to catch the new episodes!
