Via Facebook, from a currently unidentified source, we have higher resolution and better quality images from the magazine pages that revealed MP-36 Megatron. Notably we have a good look at the accessory array, which contains among other things a Key To Vector Sigma, the helmet used to control the Optimus Prime clone in "A Prime Problem", the gun and beam sabre from the movie, and several option parts. Small insets demonstrate attack modes with the gun mode add-ons, as well. Keep reading to see it all!
WINDBLADE ON EARTH! The mysterious link between METROTITAN and MICROSPACE threatens to tear two universes apart, and only WINDBLADE has a chance to heal the Titan... and there she learns a terrifying secret that changes the stakes of the REVOLUTION.

, and these few pages make it look amazing.
Be back here early next week for the review, right now keep reading for the full preview of "Thundercracker and Buster Save The World!

A White House under siege by DIRE WRAITHS. And the phone call that brings them all together.

Autobase Aichi has retrieved a fresh batch of pictures from Weibo, where user wujingguang has posted in-hand shots of Hot Rod and Twinferno! Both are looking pretty nice. Hot Rod in particular looks like he will be the worthy update to Classics Rodimus we've been waiting on for ten years now. (Which was itself the Hot Rod update fans had been waiting for for twenty years.
We're all old, fellow collectors!) Keep reading to have a look at the figures!

has shared magazine... well, photos! Definitely not scans - of a hobby magazine set to reveal the previously-leaked Masterpiece Megatron
as MP-36! It looks a fair bit better than the previous MP Megatron, and comes with some interesting accessories, including Transformers: The Movie
battle-damaged chestplate and helmet! Keep reading to see the photos!
It seems not all of the leaks have been plugged as we had hoped for. A new color guide has been posted, and it shows nothing less than the toyline incarnation of The Last Knight
Optimus Prime. The graphic is cropped to hide info like the size class, though it clearly looks Voyager at a minimum, and possibly larger still. One possibility is that this is another "first edition" figure that will precede the main line by several weeks as was done with Age of Extinction. We hope to find out more soon, and for now click through to take a look.
On Facebook, Benscollectables has shared a small album of photos showing color samples of Toyworld's effort at Masterpiece-esque 1985 Seekers. The unofficial versions of Ramjet, Thrust, and Dirge look well designed to fit in with the likes of official MP Starscream and friends, while making sure the figures are suited to depict the characters. These are likely to fall under a lot of consideration as an alternative for the TakaraTomy conehead releases, already underway as a series of exclusives. Keep reading to see the whole batch!
Thanks to Michael Mullins-Wright, we have the first verified sighting of Titans Return Brainstorm in the US! A Walgreens in San Diego (which probably doesn't narrow things down much) has received stock. Reportedly there were four units at this location, which may be an indicator of the quantity to be expected at any given store. Whether restocks are subsequently possible will remain to be seen. So if you're after this figure to finish out your main 1987 Autobot team, it's time to start hunting!
So if you spend a lot of time staring at robot crotches - and we're not judging - you may have noticed that Titan Class Fortress Maximus is missing a certain... detail. If you really miss that red circle where the G1 toy housed the mechanism for its elevator, you'll be happy to know that DNA Design has got you covered. But that's not all the DK-04 kit contains, as you also get some new hip ratchets and a set of slippers that seem to add rocker ankles to Fort Max - and double as helipads for the alternate modes! Keep reading to have a look.

Toys R Us Japan's website has provided us with the first looks at the rerelease Dinobots from the 10th anniversary line for the live action movie series. Both Grimlock and Strafe come with tiny figures of their Autobot riders as seen previously. While Strafe's deco doesn't diverge far from prior releases, Grimlock is now in a somewhat more muted deco that evokes corroded and fatigued metal, attempting to fall more in line with the drab coloration from Age of Extinction
. Both are currently listed with a release date of March 31, 2017. Keep reading to see the pictures!
While many have been looking for what TakaraTomy might do with a use of the retooled parts coming soon in Combiner Wars Liokaiser, it seems we have at least one more stop to make first. TakaraTomy Mall has a new graphic up advertising a new preorder opening for an exclusive Unite Warriors set, with the familiar silhouette of Bruticus. Though one can readily guess anyway, the filename for the graphic confirms the next UW-EX release to be Baldigus - otherwise known as Ruination! The Car Robots/Robots In Disguise combiner has no actual photos yet, but as orders open October 25, we haven't long to wait to actually see it!
With the toy packaging favoring brevity, to put it mildly, the old days of character bios seem to be behind us. But where the packages are unable to provide, Hasbro is still filling in some extra info via their Transformers website. The various product pages for the first two waves of Titans Return carry generally at least somewhat enhanced character blurbs that offer a little more detail. Some of these have been seen previously, but for most of wave 2 we're getting first looks at things like Titan Master powers, plus some nice touches of flavor in the character writing. Keep reading for a collection of all the bios to date!
Transformers: The Last Knight
has played an indirect part in delaying the US debut of the LeSEE Pro, a "driverless" car from LeEco. The unveiling event in San Francisco served to confirm earlier belief that the new car would be involved in the filming of the fifth Transformers movie. And in fact part of the LeEco presentation involved a video featuring Michael Bay who reportedly joked that he would be keeping the unit that was seen on set. The Verge reported on the event, and you can see the relevant excerpt below. Keep reading!
