Simon Chan on Facebook has shared early images of the Transformers pages from Figure King Magazine issue 233. While nothing particularly new is on show, we do get to see the stock photos for the November Legends Series assortment, Masterpieces including MPM-3 Bumblebee, the Wonderfest exclusive Laserbeak (pink Bumblebee), and a full page on Calibur Optimus and Leader Megatron. We've mirrored the images below, click through to take a look!
Another piece of The Last Knight exclusive news tonight, as a further entry in the Reveal The Shield exclusive sub-branding has been discovered. UK retailer Argos has a listing page on their website for a mask assortment featuring reuses of Transformers Prime series Optimus and Bumblebee masks. In addition to the scrambled color blocks, the masks now have red lenses, which should permit them to work as wearable decoders for any of the Reveal The Shield products. These are expected to be available via Target stores in the US. Click through for stock images of the masks.
Thanks to tf-factory we have some official looks at the Premier Edition Cogman figure from Transformers The Last Knight. The violent comedian servant had been a fan favorite in the new movie and now we can have him in his toy form. Which, is has no where near the amazing detail of the figure in the movie, but the head looks pretty good. Check out the images in the gallery below.
Just like Sunstreaker, we've got a TakaraTomy site update for MP-12+, the cartoon deco rerelease of Masterpiece Sideswipe. The differences largely come down to replacing silver paint elements with white, though there may or may not be some minor mold changes to the face. In any case, this release also comes with all the existing piledriver attachments previously spread over several different retailer editions of the standard MP-12. You can find all 25 images in the gallery below!
From TakaraTomy's big website update today, we've got a big stack of official photos of Masterpiece Sunstreaker. Many are images that we've seen before in promoting the figure, but new to this update are a set of turnarounds that show the toy in robot mode and both configurations of its vehicle mode, giving a "360 view" of it that might offer some angles we haven't seen so far. All of the photos - there's over 30 of them - can be found in the gallery below!
Finally we round out the TakaraTomy Legends product updates with November's items. Currently the last set that's been solicited, though from Tokyo Toy Show reports, we have a good idea of some of what we can expect in December! This batch has Sixshot, Broadside with the other half of Repugnus, and Targetmasters Doublecross and Misfire. Doublecross notably comes with Haywire as a Targetmaster, making it just a bit more essential to current Blurr owners. Click through to view all of the images below!
TakaraTomy's big product page update carries on with the October product assortment! Featured in this batch are stock images for Kickback with Clouder, Brawn with Repugnus, and Triggerhappy with his Targetmaster partner. This gives us some of our best direct looks at Triggerhappy's Targetmaser so far, as well as a very clear look at the new face deco on the Headmaster component. You can find all of these photos in the gallery - click through to see them now!
TakaraTomy has posted pages for all the upcoming Legends Series toys from now through November. We're breaking them down by month, and up next is the September batch! This features the anticipated Kup and Hot Rod releases, plus the TakaraTomy version of the Sharkticon with a Sweep Titan Master for use with your surplus Scourge bodies - or anyone else of course. You can find the batch mirrored below - and keep watching for more of the TakaraTomy stock image dump!
TakaraTomy's website has been updated today with product pages for all of the upcoming Legends Series items through November. Starting off we've got stock images of Trypticon, representing the version that will be sold in Japan. I'll admit I can't immediately identify the differences to the US version, but now with high res stock images, it'll be easier to scrutinize for those tiny details. Find the images mirrored below, and stay tuned for lots more to come!
Twitter user @erect85 has gotten a Siege on Cybertron set - or at the least, a Tidal Wave from that set. And it seems he was inspired by the Broadside recolor, because not only did he show it off with its Micron Legend predecessor - whose colors it emulates rather well - but he also dreamed up some "combinations" between the two. It's likely most of these are the result of strategic balancing and camera angles, but they look cool just the same! You can find the whole lot in the gallery below.
Thanks to Qwan on Twitter, we've got some nice images to share from Titan Class Trypticon. Except it's not the dinosaur itself, but rather the Deluxe-ish Full Tilt that comes with it! Qwan has also posted some brief comments about the figure, starting with that the different kinds of plastic are very well color matched - which might be a positive or negative, depending how you feel about the figure being effectively one solid color. You can find the photos mirrored below along with quoted commentary. Keep reading!
The Imaginarium Art Facebook Page has posted an image of their upcoming Rodimus Prime statue! The grayscale sneak-peek image looks quite nice, with a generous but not cluttering level of detail. That's hard to do! Keep reading to have a closer look at the statue.

Earlier in the year we talked about the TakaraTomy Silver Temenos Sword promotion,
and how it would be followed up with new promos in the summer and fall. And here we are! Spending 2000 Yen at select Japanese retailers within the month of July will net you the Gold Vector Shield, a chromed-up version of one of Optimus Prime's weapons. Keep reading to see the photos!
It's magazine scans season, and we've got our first scoop. Wonderfest is coming at the end of July! And that means more exclusives - in this case, a pink Bumblebee figure to recreate a scene featuring Laserbeak from Dark Of The Moon
that, quite frankly, I can't remember at all. Keep reading to see the photo while I congratulate myself on successfully blocking out one of these films!
