Alfes2010 has been hard at work photographing this month's new released TakaraTomy Transformers toys, and has posted a great deal to Twitter. This batch focuses on the Unite Warriors Bruticus set, particularly giving good comparison images between the Unite Warriors and Hasbro versions of the figures, both individually and combined. These photos are spread over numerous tweets, so we've collected them all together for easy viewing. Keep reading to take a look and see the differences!
Alfes2010 has come through and provided lots of nice pictures showing off the just-released Hypersurge Optimus Prime toy from Transformers Adventure. Unlike the previous large Adventure Optimus, this mold is being shared in both TakaraTomy and Hasbro markets, albeit with different decos. But all the features remain the same, and this assortment of photos gives a good look at them. We've mirrored the numerous photos Alfes has tweeted today, so click through and take a look!
It's been questioned and suspected since the reveal of the San Diego Comic Con exclusive Titan Force set. But with Hasbro's reps at Botcon being tight-lipped about it, there was just enough doubt to cause some worry. But it looks like we can rest easy as we have evidence now for the general retail release of Titans Return Brainstorm. While the SDCC version will have unique coloring, it looks like there will be a much easier - and less expensive - option forthcoming for this retool! Keep reading for more info and photo evidence!
Tyreese Gibson, who played Sgt Epps in the first Transformers movie. Has taken to his Facebook account with a recent comment that he is close to sharing some good news. Following up with the statement that he loves that the fans have been calling for his return.
Ever since the announcement of Josh Duhmel who played his co-hort as Sgt Lennox would be in Transformers 5, Tyreese has been publically gunning to join the old crew. Could this finall be it?

Amazon Japan seems to be the first to get to show off the full spread of photos for TakaraTomy's take on the Titan Class Fortress Maximus. The giant Legends entry, due this September, is finally seen in full color and deco - and revealing that it will apparently have some stickers as well! And for the first time we get to see the robot mode for this version of Cerebros which unsurprisingly does its best to take after the colors seen in The Headmasters. We have all these photos mirrored, so click through and check them out!
The last figure from the first wave of Titans Return Legends Class figures has gone up in the latest video on the Starblight.de Youtube channel. Stripes is the figure from this batch that's gotten the least love, and while the video is not completely positive toward it in every mode, this does give the impression that Stripes may be at least a little better than photos would lead you to believe in its bestial robot mode. The video is embedded below, so click through to start watching!
Thanks to Facebook user Arturo Milomir we have a scan of one of the pages from this month's Figure King Magazine featuring Masterpiece Inferno! Along with showing off the basics of the figure much as we've seen from its reveal at the toy shows, this gives an interesting new detail - where the ladder goes. It's quite an elegant bit of work, utilizing otherwise empty space inside the body to compress and store away the ladder completely. We've mirrored (and straightened out) the image of the magazine page, so keep reading and have a look!
Thanks to Hau Chi Lee on HK-TF, and the TFmizer group, we've got lots of photos from an event held in Hong Kong this week giving local fans a chance to get some hands on time with Titans Return toys. A packaged sample of San Diego Comic Con Fortress Maximus was also on hand, as well as the Titan Force set we've seen lots of already. Plus Legends wave 2 Rumble and Ravage were shown along with wave 1. Also present at this occasion was a Combiner Wars Computron boxset, allowing for some good close up images of the Hasbro version Technobots. Click through to take a look at a selection of event photos we've mirrored!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of Titans Return discussion, centering around Fortress Maximus. We got new photos of the SDCC Fort Max and we compare it against the Takara Tomy and Hasbro retail versions. Also we catch up on the latest Transformers 5 movie news, the Platinum Edition Unicron re-release, Transformers Legends photos and way, way more!
Thanks to TransformersCars who has posted a new image from the Detroit Transformers: The Last Knight location that is filming now.
The new image shows a trailer with what is unmistakable as the Transformers Autobot, Crosshairs, from the Dark of the Moon movie. Only this time he's rolling out as a 2016 Corvette Z06! Read on to see the image of Transformers: The Last Knight Crosshairs below.
Hasbro Inc. and Machinima co-hosted a panel during the Cannes Lions Festival offering Transformers fans a first glimpse of TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS, a new animated series debuting August 2nd on social entertainment platform go90 in the US, AMC Networks International Iberia in Spain and Portugal and in other territories to be announced at a later date. TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS, developed and produced by Machinima, marks the first time the iconic franchise has launched a digital-first series.
It's that time again for the latest addition to the TFCC FSS 4.0; and it's the near legendary, Spinister. Let me just say this is my favorite FSS figure thus far and the best use of the Alpha Bravo mold.
The joints are just the right tightness especially in the hips, which is important for arm mode. Being a Double Targetmaster, Spinister is armed; Vortex should've had this load out.
Prepare to pay if you're looking for this figure on the aftermarket; as I suspect it'll be one of, if not the most expensive from this collection.
