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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.

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.
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!
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!

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.
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!

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!
