Singapore-based Facebook fan group Planet Iacon
has posted a set of rumored TakaraTomy releases for October 2018. Primarily it's comprised of Power of the Primes
releases, but also of note is the addition of "MP-42 Korudon," described by PI as "Diaclone Sunstreaker." The prevailing guess seems to be that the Diaclone toy being homaged is not the red version of the Sunstreaker mold, which was the very first Transformer to be designed... but instead the police recolor, which would make the name "Cordon" make sense. Read on for the list!
There's been speculation going around for a while now on what exactly Legends Fortress Maximus' light and sound features would include. Many of us hoped for at least the "HEAD ON!"
catchphrase used in the The Headmasters
anime. Now, website Anime-Export has gone a step beyond that, claiming original actor Ikuya Sawaki will be recording new lines for the figure. Keep reading for the listing!
Maz of TFSquareOne has posted photos sent to him of a test shot of MP-25 Tracks. This in and of itself isn't too noteworthy - except that it has a new head with an unproduced toy-style faceplate! What does it mean? Is this toy of the unproduced past or the yet
to be produced future? Well, Maz has a few ideas about that - keep reading for an excerpt from his post, photos, and a link to the full article!
TFW2005 user Novabeam10 has posted a set of SKUs and prices found in the computers of a Canadian ToysRUs! We have (Canadian) prices for Fan-Built Combiner Victorion, plus the G2 Superion and Menasor boxset! There's also something listed as the "Planet of Junk" Platinum Edition set - it'll be interesting to find out what that is! For now, click through to see what we do know.
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has reported that Masterpiece Tracks, due for release this month, has been delayed. No more information is currently available, but Robotkingdom has promised the new release date as soon as they have it. Keep reading to see the post!
An image has surfaced on the Chinese auction site Taobao showing a silhouetted image marked with the TakaraTomy logo and identified as MP-28 Hound. The numbering makes some sense, with Ironhide revealed at Tokyo Toy Show as MP-27 - though the natural impulse would be to assume Ratchet would be MP-28. It remains to be seen if this is true, and we'll keep you posted on whatever news comes our way. For now, keep reading to see the image!
Thanks to @GeneralTekno on Twitter for this one! The story is that artist Livio Ramondelli, responsible for the The Transformers
side of the Combiner Wars crossover, has confirmed that Cyclonus will not
be appearing, thus there will be no impetus to redesign or move the character from his More Than Meets The Eye
appearance in order to have him conform to the Combiner Wars crossover. And frankly, that's a relief. We'll update this story if we get a more direct confirmation of this but for now, keep reading to see the tweet!
Ozformers member Bidoofdude
put 2 and 2 together concerning two previously-rumored Generations Legends, and got a promising response from Hasbro! The known Combiner Wars Legends-class figures skip numbers 11-17, and so an email was sent to Hasbro asking if the previous Walmart leaks Gnaw with Gnash and Brawn with Mudslinger might be among their numbers. The answer is less than concrete, but more than maybe - keep reading to see!
A member of the 2005 forums has posted a rumor about the eagerly anticipated Combiner Wars Devastator, one which dovetails neatly with the idea of it being a Titan Class figure. The rumor suggests that the body will be a Leader and the limbs will be Voyagers, which would indeed suggest a massive figure that requires a Metroplex-sized box. The rumor also suggests we'll see a yellow G2 version at SDCC this year. Keep reading to see all the rumored details!
Thanks to a post on the Allspark, we have news of solicitations going around Malaysia that lists many Takara Tomy Transformers items under series names that we have not seen for a long time. Could these be repacks of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters toys or new releases with different decos under the Platinum Edition heading? Its hard to tell right now, but the listing includes exciting names like Ultra Magnus, Classic Predaking, Grimlock Vs Bruticus and more of what appear to be Asia exlusive releases that you can see below.
Before Takara Tomy's Masterpiece MP-11 Starscream even hits retailers next month
, the company has announced that they will repaint the mold as MP-11S Sunstorm. According to Malaysian retailer Toy Wizard, the company will release the figure towards the end of May 2012. In addition to this bit of news, Toy Wizard also reports that Takara Tomy has separately announced that Encore #23 as Sixshot. Keep reading for more
Ebay seller EToysHunter has posted an auction
for a very interesting new item that the seller claims is not a KO: "THIS IS NOT KO VER" We can only speculate on what this is: One off custom, a lunchtime special or maybe even a future reissue or exclusive? Whatever, this thing looks super sweet. A mass release of something like this would be way cool IMO. Till we know more, you may view the images in the image gallery
We posted a rumor yesterday that Wal-Mart may be carrying a U.S. version of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus
based on the weight listed on the product listing. Well, this rumor has been debunked. It seems like many people's initial reaction of it being a boosted-up price for the Toys 'R' Us-exclusive Generation 1 re-issue of Ultra Magnus (which the image in the listing depicts) has prevailed. "Tryphonus" of the Allspark
did some legwork...Click through for more
A couple of images of what looks to be a U.S.-bound version of Masterpiece MP-03 Starscream have popped up over at ACToys
. At first, members of the TFans community called is a really nice looking custom. However, it seems the constantly-reliable source "S250" has gone ahead and confirmed that this is indeed ready to hit the U.S. market, according to our "Heat Guy" of TFans
. Is this really the first look that we are getting of the second Masterpiece figure to grace our shores? Only time will tell. Until then, feast your eyes
on either a really great looking custom, or the real deal.
Thanks to Monzo of the Allspark
for the heads up that the US Patent Office has posted two filings from Hasbro Inc. for names that would lead us to believe there may be a future victim, er uh, figure in the Mr. Potato Head line named "OPTIMASH PRIME
." We kid not when we report Hasbro even registered the slogan "MORE THAN MEETS THE FRY
." Discuss it over at Tfans.com
