We've been able to get hold of a Combiner Wars Victorion boxset just a bit early, so we're bringing you our first look at the set in this unboxing video. We'll take a good look at the packaging, along with the paperwork inserts such as the excellent miniposter, before moving on to a quick, preliminary overview of the six toys. But we've got a lot more Victorion planned for you in the very near future. Keep checking back as we bring you galleries, more videos and full reviews of this great box set!

As the old saying goes, you can call Legends Skull anything, but don't call him late for dinner. And in today's photos from TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki, Skullcruncher's dinner looks very much like the Titan Master vehicle his Headmaster partner is riding. Run, Grax, run! Due at the end of July in Japan, Skullsmasher is priced at 4320 Yen. Keep reading to see the photos!
Was Generations Chop Shop just not doing it for you on his own? No, I don't mean the Skrapnel recolor, I mean the tiny little Targetmaster Beetle Scissors accessory figure. If you just have to have more Insecticons at that specific scale, Dr Wu has you covered! On Weibo, a render was shown presenting takes on Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel as the Micro Insect Army set. It is perhaps a nice move for people who want matching Insecticon sets, but wouldn't going for Chop Shop's actual team of the Deluxe Insecticons
have been more appropriate? Click through to take a look at the image!
The video series Super Power Beat Down
has pitted Optimus Prime (the movie version to be specific) against the most technologically advanced superhero on Earth: Iron Man! This unofficial video plays out a battle between the two titans, but leaves the end result up to the voting public. Who is the winner? You'll have to watch through to the end to find that out - keep reading to see the video!

It's Golden Week in Japan! Apparently Hisashi Yuki has taken some time off to play the Japanese rhythm game Prism Paradise
. Looks like he got one of the low-tier prizes in their promotional campaign - and Hardhead's not taking it well either. We also have an image of Hardhead in better times, using his Titan Master vehicle in its weapon mode. (Which looks like nothing so much as an upturned tank, which it is.) Keep reading to see!
From their Weibo page we have some new looks at the first two figures from TransformMission's Masterpiece-scaled unofficial Stunticons. These pictures show the Breakdown and Wildrider analogues in plastic and paint colors for the first time. The text in the post notes that some deco tweaks are planned - and likewise the molds themselves apparently need modifications, and so it seems the release of these figures will be delayed for a while in order to get these issues sorted out. You can see the mirrored pictures below in the full post!
Good news for all you Texas residents!! We will be hosting our very own Robot / Sci Fi themed convention here in San Antonio, TX!!
We're hosting a bot themed convention set for 7 - 8 May 2016. From the folks that organized Alamo City Comic Convention (ACCC), we are holding a robot themed convention dubbed, Cyber City Con (CCC) here in the heart of Texas. .
Here we are with another FSS, this time with a combiner theme. Needlenose is a double Targetmaster and a great update to the late G1 figure. The paint details pop, I especially like the metallic blue used for the nosecone. There is some tolerance issues with the grips on the Targetmasters, but nothing too bad. I'm excited to see how the other figures turn out.
HasbroToyShop has a sale going on eBay today, offering prices that are only slightly
below retail on a lot of current or recent figures - but prices that work out pretty well with the free shipping offered on most of the figures. Keep reading for an idea of what's for sale, and a link!
It's a good day for artistic endeavors by Transformers fans! Tonight we have a batch of photos to bring you from Alvaro Valdivieso Paredes, who's gone to Facebook posting his custom built Autobot starship Ark as seen in the G1 cartoon. Though this one might take some cues from the mild redesign it had for its appearance in Beast Wars rather than being strictly original-cartoon-derived. Though no distinct scale is given, seeing the real estate it occupies on tabletops helps give a sense of its bulk. While it may not be the biggest ever, it's no less impressive, and you can keep reading to see it in full!
TFyuki and Hero-X bring us new images of the Million Publishing Hero-X Exclusives TAV VS SP Dogfight VS Runamuck figures! Get a look at the figures along with a fun shot of Runamuck surfing on soon to be released Unite Warriors Blast-Off figure. Read on to see the images and google translated comments from TFYuki.
It's certainly not a new thing - Transformers fans wanting to represent a favorite character can and do show remarkable talent in recreating robots in costume form. And so it was with Anthony Darkenstein (I so hope that's his real last name) who created a fantastic costume of G1 Galvatron to wear around the Calgary Expo that took place this weekend. This skillful effort was rewarded as he managed to turn heads not just at the show, but all over the internet as photos of him made their way around social media. We've collected a few of them, so keep reading to have a look for yourself!

30 years ago, you may have had a G1 Grimlock under
your Christmas tree. But this July, Hallmark is offering the next-best thing: a G1 Grimlock in Dino Mode to hang on
your Christmas tree! He'll run you $16 for a fairly compact, non-transforming Dinobot. Keep reading for more details!
During the weekend of Botcon 2015, attendees had the opportunity to see a testshot of Pandinus, the giant unofficial Scorponok by Maketoys at an offsite third party event, so some of us already have a strong grasp on just how big this figure is. But for everyone else it might be a little hard to comprehend. Thankfully, user shiyitan on 78dm.net's forum has posted a useful side by side, showing Pandinus next to Titan Class Combiner Wars Devastator. While not quite face to face, Pandinus has a great deal more volume, showing its true hugeness. Keep reading to see for yourself!
