Loopaza Mega Store has posted scans of the latest issue of Figure King Magazine to Facebook, and the most interesting part is a good look at all the new parts afforded to Unite Warriors Computron's most ambtious remold, Nosecone! Sporting a new head, treads, a drill, and what appears to be three
guns, Nosecone takes the best Deluxe mold in Combiner Wars and makes it (hopefully) even better. Keep reading to see all the scans!
In a few days, the TakaraTomy release of Robots In Disguise Deployers Crazybolt will be released in Japan! But Hisashi Yuki has posted that this one gave them some trouble. The translation offered by Twitter is a bit rough, but apparently coming up with a color plan that was accurate to the TV version was a challenge. I have to admit though, it looks good! Keep reading for the photo and the tweet.
We reported a while back on a project from Dr Wu, creating further Insecticons at the Legends Targetmaster partner scale to join your tiny Chop Shop. We now have what look to be early, 3D printed prototypes of these mini-figures, showing off their individual modes plus their capacity to be used as weapons by larger figures, though "weapon" and "mode" apply only in very loose degrees in each case. You can keep reading to check out all the photos.
Master Made has posted new pictures to their Weibo account showing color photos of their Apollo figure, the SD styled Omega Supreme following on from their Metroplex and Trypticon styled figures. These new photos show normal style robot hands under the claw and cannon parts, and a glowing face. No pictures of the alt mode are provided in this batch, but it is a good showing of what the robot has to offer in terms of features. Click through to check out all the photos!
We have a few new in hand photos of the Legends wave from Titans Return. While these are not especially an amazing revelation at the moment, these do give a first clear look at Stripes - at least a first since Botcon - and some new size comparisons with more recent toys.
Of note, Rewind and Wheelie seem distinctly shorter than the previous couple of years' Legends Class figures. And as a special find, it seems that the Masterpiece Daniel Witwicky minifigure manages a decent fit inside Wheelie's vehicle mode! You can see all of this in the full article below.
Artist Priscilla Tramontano, who is the guest artist on IDW's The Transformers
this month, has posted her retailer-incentive covers for both that book and Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye
! MTMTE gives us a nice relaxed look at Swerve in his bar, a far cry from the current dire straits the crew find themselves in. Meanwhile, Arcee is all business on the ex-RID cover, which is a perfect fit for the issue. Keep reading to see!
SteelPestsTeam SPT01 Steel Bug stands 6 tall and transforms into a battle tank. He is armed with two blasters and a shovel. This item is priced at $54.99 USD.
This is a different kind of offering from the usual Third Party fare with a somewhat humorous slant on the Transformers robots. The Steel Bug figure design is lots of fun with an engaging SD style robot sculpt, loads of weapons and a tough little tank mode.
Leaked this weekend in a fuzzy image of a hobby magazine page, we now have full photos from TakaraTomy themselves of Loud Pedal, the recolor of Masterpiece Tracks featuring the toy-based head previously seen only on a testshot.
Loud Pedal will be an exclusive at Tokyo Toy Show this summer, and is based on the Diaclone black version of Tracks. For those concerned about availability, it's worth noting last year's TTS exclusives were fairly readily available online for some time after the event.

Somebody actually bit on Myers' $100 AUD over retail markup, looks like! Twitter user @Kal_ElofKrypton has posted a series of images of Titan Class Fortress Maximus and is promising video soon. Among other things, you can see a comparison to the original Fortress Maximus' head, and to Titan Class Metroplex (who is actually taller by a shoulder-gun)! Keep reading to see.
Generation-Toy has posted new photos to Weibo! Showing off their upcoming unofficial Jazz figure, the figure's name is given as... GT-4 Jazz. That's unusual! The figure is an interesting color scheme, with a grayish silver that calls back to Jazz's movie incarnation and blue parts where his robot mode was traditionally black, which could be a callback to Marvel Comics or Fall of Cybertron
- or both! Keep reading to see the photos!
Tonight on Twitter, Hisashi Yuki has more Legends Series Titans Return samples in the office, and he's showing us different ways to use all the little Titan Masters. Weirdwolf and Skullcruncher demonstrate the Cross Head On process by switching their Titan Masters, while Hardhead piles on a couple of friends thanks to the extra carry capacity of the tank mode and the handy addition of the mini-tank vehicle that comes with that toy. You can check out both photos in the full article below!
Are we destined to get evil Decepticons twins for basically every Masterpiece Autobot car? ...probably. The latest TakaraTomy effort towards that goal is MP-25L, whose name appears to be "Loudpedal." This was revealed via a very small photo of one of the upcoming Japanese hobby magazines, which also shows that Loudpedal will have their own stand! Keep reading for the photo, and what little info we have.
Hisashi Yuki has treated us to a pair of new photos tonight showing off upcoming Legends Series releases. First, Unite Warriors Cyclonus has a meet and greet with the new Scourge and his Sweeps, or maybe just a new troop of Sweeps - it's so hard to tell the difference! And in the second image, Blurr demonstrates his rapid transformation skill, making it seem as though there are actually four of him staged in progressive steps of the sequence! Amazing! To check out these photos for yourself, keep reading!
You get a Megatron! You get a Megatron! Everybody who handled Gun Megatron in the G1 cartoon gets a Megatron!
The latest Masterpiece to get in on the Oprah-like Megatron giveaway is MP-29 Shockwave! Also known by his Japanese name of Laserwave, the Decepticon caretaker will be reissued in non-Japanese Asian territories, and those who preorder will be gifted with the - what, at least third? - nontransforming pistol form of the Decepticon leader. Keep reading for more info!
Thanks to Steve Watts - aka Sharky who has posted to the Ozformers Facebook group with new in hand photos of Titans Return Wheelie, part of the first Legends Class assortment that was found at retail in Australia.
These photos give a good sense of the difference between a Titan Master and Generations 2014 Brainstorm's Headmaster, as Wheelie's occupant compartment is entirely unable to accommodate the older head robot. We're expecting more photos to follow in the coming days, so stay tuned. Keep reading to see the photos!
Just up on Amazon.ca is a listing for TRANSFORMERS Platinum Edition Prime Vs Megatron Action Figure One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall Platinum Edition set that will is available now in Canada.
Get the scoop on the yearly special edition with looks at the figures that are revealed as redecos of the Transformers Classics Optimus and Megatron molds with very interesting re-decos.
An Australian user of the website 4chan has posted in-hand images of the Titans Return Wave 1 Legends figures! Featuring Rewind, Wheelie, and Stripes, these are the first Titans Return figures to make it to market. Rewind and Wheelie are definitely looking good, and Stripes is... looking like an attempt to make a symmetrically-decorated cat out of a rectangle. Keep reading for a closer look!
No gimmick or theme here today, but Hisashi Yuki would very much like you to know how cool Unite Warriors Bruticus is, and also to have a look at its TakaraTomy Mall product page. The Combaticon combiner is leaning back from the camera a bit to imply its height and menace. It's a nice looking figure, to be sure. Still... those color-coordinated feet. They're animation accurate, but kind of weird. Keep reading to see!
