Transformers News and Reviews
Generations
Following being on display at Super Festival 66, Million Publishing's HeroXnet has tweeted two promotional images of mailaway exclusives Shouki and Go-Shooter. Showing both toys along with their partner character figures both in regular display stance and action oriented poses, they're doing a good job selling both, even if Go-Shooter is arguably the one with the greater degree of interest right now. Keep reading to check out both full size images!
Collectors Club
Transformers Collectors' Club facebook page has posted an updated images of the G2 Starscream that was just shown. According to the Club: "The group shot had an earlier version of Starscream before the correct faction symbol was added...." Read on to see what is believed to be completed figure.
MasterPiece
We can't get enough of that MP-20 Wheeljack so how can we resist yet another review of the uh-mazing Transformers Masterpiece that just out from Takara Tomy. Get the break down on this figure as he is unbox, transformed and posed relentlessly to reveal the good and bad details. As usual, we have a bunch of detailed images to go along with the review for those times when the hand is quicker than the eye. Read on for the full Masterpiece Wheeljack MP-20 feast.
Third Party
Just out are new images of the Keith's Fantasy Club Haiku action figure. This toy is a third party Transformer homage to the Predacon Sky-Byte. Get a look at the box and the painted figure in his robot shark mode for a the full look at the product release.

Generation 1 Japan
Collectors Club
The Transformers Collector's Club has posted images of the collected TFSS 3.0 figure renders in both modes. G2 Starscream, Nacelle, Carzap with G.B. Blackrock, Serpent O.R., Krok, and Tarantulas are all looking pretty good! Keep reading to see the images!
Generation 1 Japan
Autobase Aichi has posted new images of Kotobukiya's upcoming D-Style Convoy model kit, due out in January 2015 for a price of 3240 yen. There are a lot of SD Optimus Primes, but what sets this one apart is the tiny truck-mode representation it comes with... and how great the oversized Ion Blaster looks pegged into the top of it. Keep reading to see all the photos!
Generations
At Super festival 66, the fourth wave of Transformers Cloud figures were on display. From TAGhobby we have photos of Hellwarp, a Skywarp-themed recolor of Sky-Byte based on the concept of Cyborg Beast Hellscream, and Roadbuster, based on the colors of Energon Ironhide, called Roadbuster in the Superlink version of the series. These are currently the last known pair of toys from Cloud, and should ship late this year. Keep reading to see the images.
Generations
TAGhobby has posted photos from Super Festival 66 where Million Publishing's exclusive recolors of Nightbeat as Masterforce's Go-Shooter and Astrotrain aa The Headmasters' Trainbot Shouki were on display. Mailaway figures offered through the Generations 2014 Volumes 1 and 2, Shouki with Daniel should ship later this year, and Go-Shooter with Shuta will ship early 2015. Keep reading to see both images!
Generation 1 Japan
Thanks to Autobase Aichi we have have yet more images from the Japan Model Hobby Show 2015 that was going on this week in Japan. Get a look at more new Transformers products images of the T-Arts PlayStation Optimus Prime along with the previously revealed Sega Genesis Megatron. Also shown was the Age of Extinction Optimus Prime Dual Model Kit and the Kotobukiya D-Style painted Optimus Prime and prototype Megatron figures. Finally, we get a preview of the Kotobuikya Z Prime 1/72 Model Kit.
 
Generation 1 Japan
Autobase Aichi has posted an image of Kotobukiya's upcoming Z Prime model kit. This one is kind of an interesting oddity: the kit is a recolor (with possible new Matrix tooling) of Kotobukiya's existing 1/72 scale Type-K Z Knight model. Originally, Z Knights were a short-lived series of human motorized model kits by Tomy that were tied via backstory to Zoids, the famous line of animal motorized model kits. So this is a recolor of a model of a spinoff. Keep reading to see the image!
Third Party
Maketoys has posted a slew of new photos for their MT-05LTE Gento (pronounced "Gen Two," no doubt) and its variations. Patterned closely after Reveal The Shield Laser Optimus Prime, Gento serves as a centerpiece for the updated Battle Tanker set, now known as Battle Sentinel. It is or will be also available in pretty much every variation FunPub ever did of the RTS Prime mold: Scourge (MT-04 The Nemesis), Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus (MT-02B Interspace Dagger Army Commando), and SG Optimus Prime (MT-02P Battle Sentinel SP SG). Keep reading to see selected photos!
Generations
Planet Iacon has shared a new photo showing a display of this year's exclusive offerings. Go-Shooter is a recolor of the Nightbeat remold of Bumblebee/Goldfire, with a recolored instance of Legends Bumblebee's Targetmaster partner as Shuta, while Shouki is the previously seen Trainbot recolor of Classics Astrotrain. This is our first look at a physical sample of Go-Shooter, and we can expect more to follow soon. Click through to see the full size image.
Generations
From the RocketPunchArmy Youtube channel we have an early look at Chromia, upcoming wavemate to Generations Arcee. A substantial retool of Transformers Prime's main line Arcee toy, Chromia has been the source of a lot of unexpected interest to see how this unusual instance of major after-the-fact remolding will play out in practice. Watch the embedded video to get a good look at this figure in-hand!
Third Party
Toy collector display maker Toystages has posted a variety of backdrops to their site recently that may interest Transformer collectors. These backdrops are all designed to help you set up fun displays of your figures. The scenes on these backdrops include the headquarters of the Autobots and Decepticons, the desert, and their home planet of Cybertron, as well as backdrops based on 1984 toy box art. 15 different ones to choose from.
Beast Wars Japan
What, did he run out of Star Saber photos? TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki has tweeted design sketches for Beast Wars Second's Galvatron (or, as his packaging calls him, "Garba Tron"). From an early version that seemingly emphasised a Scorponok-like tail to a more recognizeable version, Yuki's sketches are a fascinating look into the development of a 90s Japan-only toy. Keep reading to see all the images!
Third Party
Renderform has announced a pair of replacement heads for Fansproject's Steelcore that are inspired by the Armada Overload AKA Energon Ultra Magnus mold. RFX-008 Steel Magnum is based more directly on Energon Magnus (apparently inspired by the prototype head for Steelcore) while RFX-009 Iron Magnum is a modified design. Both are available in Energon Magnus and Steelcore color schemes. Keep reading to see photos!
Third Party
Renderform has posted extensive images of their upcoming Alex Milne-inspired heads for Fansproject Code and Smart Robin. Each of the three nontransforming heads- both regular and flashback heads for Chromedome - has a variety of eye/visor options and is available in super-limited quantities. Keep reading for all the details and extensive photos!
