Site sponsor Robotkingdom is expecting some big stuff in a couple of days. Due to start shipping on the 27th of August, Masterpiece MP31 Delta Magnus and UW-08 Computron will both include their Hasbro Asia collector coins! They've posted images of both, which we've mirrored here. Keep reading to see!
We've looked at all the individual Technobots now: Afterbreaker, Cybaxx, Lightsteed, Nosecone, Scattershot, Scrounge, and Strafe. (Alphabetical order, because why not?) Now it's time to look at the last few aspects of the set: Scattershot's torso mode, the hands and feet, and Computron itself! Keep reading for 93 photos of Computron!
Autobase Aichi has posted images from a recent eBay auction featuring a test shot of Titans Return Galvatron! Molded in off-white and teal - the same plastic colors as the Blaster test shot with the unusual face - this testshot doesn't seem to have any real differences from the final release. But testshots just have a certain something,
and Nucleon's tiny Megatron head comes off a lot better in the less metallic grade of plastic. Keep reading to see!
TFND has posted a wealth of images from their 12th annual event in Taipei, and somebody brought a lot
of interesting toys to the con, some as yet unreleased! Most notably on that front there's MP Delta Magnus, and Unite Warriors Computron standing shoulder to shoulder with his Combiner Wars counterpart! (And stealing his hands and feet!) All that and more after the jump, so keep reading!
ToysRUs Canada made an interesting decision this weekend: they're having a Transformers sale. That isn't the interesting part (though Titans Return Fortress Maximus is 25% off and that may be of note to our Canadian readers!) No, the interesting part is the banner for the sale which is all photos of 2017 Titans Return toys. Besides Voyager Optimus Prime and Leader Sixshot, this is our first kinda-official look at Deluxe Doublecross, and his package art! Keep reading to see!
A remold of the Aerialbot Air Raid Strafe is the beneficiary of the bulk of the remolding done to the Computron set, with a majority-new vehicle mode. It looks great, and the figure is basically flawless. With one exception: the guns on Strafe's nose are not removable like the G1 versions were, and Unite Warriors versions will be. If that doesn't bother you much (or any), he's up there with Afterbreaker as Best In Set. Keep reading to see 50 photos of Strafe!
With the release of the Computron Collection Pack yesterday, it is currently easier to get a hold of Afterbreaker than Groove, the TakaraTomy-produced mold that he is based on. That's... maybe just a bit sad. But cheer up: in terms of plastic tolerances, general appearance, and the fact that he's a Lightcycle, Afterbreaker - formerly Afterburner, is simply better than Groove in a variety of ways.

Autobase Aichi has posted images of the promo comic for E-Hobby Convobat! Convobat is a Bat Optimus Primal (Convoy + Bat equals...) repaint of Mindwipe with Sentinel Prime's Titan Master Infinitus - but the comic focuses on the bonus items in the set: a Megalligator Headmaster, and an Optimal Optimus-themed recolor of Titan Master Apeface's vehicle referred to here as "Ape x Arms." Keep reading to see the comic!
Here's Lightsteed, AKA Red Streetwise! ...that's about all I can say about him, except that I wish Hasbro had chosen two molds that were better at being legs to be the legs. He does a game job of attempting to look like G1 Lightspeed, but the structure of Streetwise's alt-mode can't quite support the attempt. Click through to see!
Hisashi Yuki, TakaraTomy Toy Designer and tireless promoter, has posted a package photo of the impeding LG-25 Legends Series Blurr! With a more animation accurate (and colorful
deco for the robot mode, Blurr runs rings around his Titans Return counterpart, aesthetically speaking. Click through to see!
Nosecone is just Brawl with the drill we saw previously on BotCon 2016's General Ramhorn. But he fixes the problems with Brawl's execution just as Ramhorn did: namely the floppy, horrible waist. It's now just weird instead of weird and not functioning properly. Plus, if you were using Computron's leg as reference, you may
have been doing vehicle mode wrong. I was! Click here to see the 52-image gallery!
Just up on the officail Prime 1 Studio page are new official images of the PMTF-02 Megatron Transformers: Generation 1 Statue.
The non-transforming statue is one of the best sculpts of the Decepticon Leader we have seen to date. The figure is super detailed with a stunning silver metallic color theme that celebrates most of the glory of Megatron, complete with his P38 arm cannon. We don't see his mace weapon, but there is a new sword weapon that my be the replacement.
Read on to see the images for the PMTF-02 Megatron Transformers Generation 1 Statue.
Hey, it's the guy who appeared in one entire issue of the Marvel G1 comic! Scrounge was a tremendous surprise when he was revealed at BotCon 2016 as a recolor of Legends class Cosmos & Payload. But if obscure characters weren't enough for you, Scrounge is partnered with Cybaxx, an entirely new guy. And while he may no longer have his special arm (there is no other like it), Scrounge and Cybaxx combine to make Computron's Strafe arm that much more special. Click through to see a 60-photo gallery!
Hisashi Yuki has posted another envy-provoking photo of upcoming Takara products: this time we have LG-31 Fortress Maximus hanging out with the TakaraTomy release of Metroplex! Standing side by side it's easy to see how many pieces the pair share. Keep reading to see!
RAC continues his reviews and photos for Titan Masters Wave 2! Clobber is, save for his coloring and faceplate, a straight-up reuse of Crashbash. Fortunately, Crashbash was great and so, for the most part is Clobber. But his Grimlock face is a bit of a color mismatch for the gunmetal plastic of the rest of his head mode... Keep reading for 45 images of a chicken/war turkey that turns into a T-Rex and a Dinobot head!
