The Transformers official Instagram has had another small update this evening, showing off close up photos of Cerebros, the large head component of Fortress Maximus in both its head and robot forms, alongside Emissary, Cerebros's Titan Master. Also included is a solid, "clean" version of the Fortress Maximus shot they started the day with. We have them mirrored, so keep reading to take a look!
While we were busy dealing with the official news and reveals for Transformers today, the leak sources continued to try to gain attention by posting more art. This then is the complete version of art for Brainstorm, the later-assortment retool of Deluxe Blurr. In robot mode the distinction between toys is far more pronounced, and in a move sure to please many, the Titan Master continues to favor the appearance of the character in the IDW comics! Keep reading to take a look.
The Hasbro team from their new TransformersOfficial Instagram account did indeed give us a unique look at Titan Class Fortress Maximus during today's Toy Fair festivities. Though for fun the image was split in to twelve blocks arranged on their account page. For ease of showing to you, we've stitched the pieces back together, getting a great look at this year's toy, said to be the new tallest Transformer ever. Click through to check out the image!
Our second stop on the promotional pictures roundup is Generations. Titans Return is the big showing, with the official reveal of Fortress Maximus, and our official looks at Blurr, Mindwipe, Chromedome and more. Plus we get a look at the Platinum Armada of Cyclonus three pack featuring a Sweep with a new head mold based on Devcon. Click through to check out all of the official images!
Hasbro has released the official promotional images for products revealed today at Toy Fair! First up we have Robots in Disguise with new reveals of Warrior Class Windblade and Scorponok, plus lots of looks at the big and Warrior scale versions of Power Surge Optimus Prime. Up next we'll have all of today's Generations reveals, so stay tuned for more!
Toys Alliance has posted a new image to their Facebook page announcing Mega Action Series MAS-01 Optimus Prime! A large, non-transforming figure, this Optimus Prime is articulated and will feature light-up features. An image is available giving a brief glimpse of the grayscale prototype, but a really great look at an illustration by the artist of the IDW book formerly known as Robots In Disguise,
Andrew Griffith! Keep reading to see.
In these final hours before everything gets revealed for real and officially, those holding on to early access materials are scrambling to get everything out while relevance still exists. Thus we have a look tonight at the full color, uncropped, normal resolution packaging art for Alpha Trion. This figure is believed to be a Voyager, and speculated by our own RAC to perhaps be a heavy Galvatron retool. If this shows up in New York tomorrow, we may get a concrete answer to at least that question! Keeo reading to take a look, and watch us all day tomorrow for ongoing Toy Fair coverage!
Shortly after author James Roberts verified the publication date on Twitter as February 24th, iTunes has followed up with the customary short preview for the issue. This preview, said to be pages 4, 5, & 6 does contain small spoilers for the prior issue or two, but otherwise seems to thankfully reveal little of issue 50 itself in what we see. As usual we'll have the first review of this issue here for you in a little under two weeks. Meanwhile if spoilers do not frighten you and you want a quick peek at what's to come, click through and check it out!
TFW2005 has published an extensive report on Hasbro's Investor & Press Day event for Toy Fair 2016! Among the things you'll find inside are a release date for Transformers 5, details on Transformers 6 and the spinoff movie, new details on Machinima's Combiner Wars animation, the first official photo of Titans Return Titan Class Fortress Maximus, and more! Keep reading to see it all.
Following that full art leak, we now have the full version of the picture that started us down the road of the Computron box set, the mockup photo featuring all the involved molds, albeit just in existing decos. But from this we can finally say with certainty that Lightspeed will be from the Dead End mold family, represented here by Smokescreen, as there had been question up to now which car mold would be used. Be sure to keep an eye on our Toy Fair coverage right here on Saturday when we're likely to get an official look at a complete sample of this set. Keep reading to check out the mockup.
As we carry on eroding away any chance for surprises at Toy Fair this weekend, today's leak shows us what's probably the full art for Computron finally, and even in color! While most of Computron is not a surprise, being an assortment of varyingly retooled existing molds (though more and more this Scattershot seems to at least have the right colors to be the torso), there is one new nugget. On the Strafe shoulder is... a yellow or gold Cosmos? It sounds like the highly improbable rumor of a Scounge recolor of Cosmos may have actually been true, giving Computron a surely very special arm. Keep reading to take a look!
A few days ago we brought you news of the airdate of the second season of Robots in Disguise, along with the titles for the first two episodes. Now once again via Zap2It, we have a new update bringing us the title for the third episode of the season. Currently scheduled to air on March 5th in the US, you'll be able to catch "Metal Meltdown" on Cartoon Network - presumably at the same 6:30am slot the first season occupied. Keep your DVR warm and watch here for more updates as we get future episode titles!
With Wonderfest done and the retailer photography now out in the wild, it looks like it's time for Hisashi Yuki to take over in delivering us further looks at the upcoming Unite Warriors Bruticus. Tonight via Twitter we've got a new angle on the current colored sample of the set, and the colors look very nice here! Particularly, the combiner hands have a very pleasant matte silvery-grey that hopefully carries over to the final production parts. We'll probably see lots more of these toys from Yuki soon, so keep watching here for updates, and click through to check out this photo!
With Toy Fair just a quick couple of days away now, we're due to officially see a lot of things that so far have only been rumors, or bizarre piecemeal attention-seeking leaks. But Hasbro seems to want to jump the line just a little bit this year. In a post to the official Transformers Facebook page today, they announced a new official Instagram account coming soon, which will launch with "an up-close look at a certain Titan scale figure"! The referneced account is set private currently, but in the next day or two it sounds like we'll be having a first look at Fortress Maximus straight from Hasbro. Keep reading for a link to the Instagram page.
We're rapidly approaching Toy Fair time, and the sources of the various cropped, modified photos and art pieces must be aware of this since we're getting something of a blowout of everything they've been holding back. The newest is a lower body shot of a robot that seems to share details with the previously seen Blurr, but in colors that could be consistent with Brainstorm. A Brainstorm recolor/retool of Blurr was rumored some time ago. Maybe this is confirmation? Keep reading and check it out.
John DeLuna has also shared tonight some pictures from the Club magazine featuring membership premium figure Ramjet, and Club Store exclusive Skywarp, both based on the Generations Armada Starscream tooling. The image of Ramjet gives a good look at the new face sculpt, plus the deco giving it the look of a glowing mouth. And we also get a look at a mockup of the packaging for Skywarp, taking heavily after classic Armada packaging. Keep reading to see both pictures!
Apparently the attention seeking leakers have been listening to fan complaints and have now responded by releasing a new version of the partial Combiner Wars Computron art in full color. Perhaps the next step will be showing off the other half or even the entire piece! Or we could just wait for Toy Fair or another official
channel to show us Computron. But if you can't wait to get another peek at this upcoming set, click through and check out the new picture.
As promised some while back, the newest TFCC magazine issue contains a preview for the fifth iteration of the Transformers Figure Subscription Service, which was announced even before the fourth had all its production samples revealed. Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has tweeted out a photo of the preview page, showing two of the upcoming figures. Unsurprisingly there's a reuse of the Oilmaster Pretender shell created for Botcon 2015's boxset, and a not-so outside the box reuse of Generations Arcee. Keep reading to see what they are!
