Autobase Aichi has retrieved a fresh batch of pictures from Weibo, where user wujingguang has posted in-hand shots of Hot Rod and Twinferno! Both are looking pretty nice. Hot Rod in particular looks like he will be the worthy update to Classics Rodimus we've been waiting on for ten years now. (Which was itself the Hot Rod update fans had been waiting for for twenty years.
We're all old, fellow collectors!) Keep reading to have a look at the figures!

has shared magazine... well, photos! Definitely not scans - of a hobby magazine set to reveal the previously-leaked Masterpiece Megatron
as MP-36! It looks a fair bit better than the previous MP Megatron, and comes with some interesting accessories, including Transformers: The Movie
battle-damaged chestplate and helmet! Keep reading to see the photos!
So if you spend a lot of time staring at robot crotches - and we're not judging - you may have noticed that Titan Class Fortress Maximus is missing a certain... detail. If you really miss that red circle where the G1 toy housed the mechanism for its elevator, you'll be happy to know that DNA Design has got you covered. But that's not all the DK-04 kit contains, as you also get some new hip ratchets and a set of slippers that seem to add rocker ankles to Fort Max - and double as helipads for the alternate modes! Keep reading to have a look.
While we learned about this accessory back in May,
thanks to Hobbybase we now have full, non-silhouette photos of the diecast Megatron gun included with the reissue of MP29 Shockwave. And it looks nice! This will be the bonus item shipped out with the figure for the Hasbro Asia release, so if you have a retailer of choice in non-Japanese Asian territories, you may want to see about a preorder. Keep reading for photos!
The official TakaraTomy Transformers PR account has posted a new image of Legends Super Ginrai posing with his colleagues, LG31 Fortress (of Fortress Maximus fame), and MP-24 Star Saber! Interesting to see how many of the G1-Japan Supreme Commanders we've gotten in the last couple of years - all we need is a new Dai Atlas for the complete set! Keep reading to see the image.
Site sponsor RobotKingdom has posted a new gallery of images of the upcoming Masterpiece Shattered Glass Optimus Prime! The Autobot leader's mirror universe counterpart will be released in Asia in November, and this is our first look at the package art by More Than Meets The Eye
artist Alex Milne with colors by Sara Pitre-Durocher (Till All Are One
)! Keep reading to see the photos!
One again, Hallmark was showing off their upcoming holiday ornaments for the 2016 season with some nice reveals for Transformers Generation 1 fans.
Hallmark are going all G1 this year with two different styles of product. The first are robot modes repros of the original Grimlock and Soundwave toys. The others are what appear to be mini-plush editions of Optimus Prime, Soundwave and Bumblebee.
Look for these to show up in retail for the holidays at a price of $15,95 USD. Read on to see them all in the gallery.
The NYCC Hasbro stream has just ended, and we got a special surprise near the end: the first reveal of Trypticon! ...well, partial
reveal: a grayscale hardcopy leg is what was ready to show - but it's a great-looking piece roughly the same height as Leader-class Sixshot! We've got lots of high-res stills from the stream, plus photos from RFC's diecast as well as Anthony from TFU.INFO, so keep reading for the highlights and images!
Weibo user foklautoy has posted a series of in-hand images of Titans Return Gnaw! The diminutive Sharkticon is looking good, and we finally get to see how he interacts with a Titan Master - he puts it in his mouth, where else? Gnaw is expected in Wave 3 along with a new Bumblebee and the long-awaited Kickback - but this one's very likely going to be the hardest to find due to troop-building. Keep reading to see the images!
The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted images (in some cases silhouettes) of the exclusives set to come with MP-33 Inferno, MP-34 Cheetor, and MP-35 Grapple! These Masterpiece figures will ship to non-Japanese Asian territories with miniature diecast figures of Optimus Prime, Optimus Primal, and Ultra Magnus! We don't know at the moment whether these figures will also ship with coins or whether these minifigures have taken the place of the collector coins - but that'd make a lot of sense. Keep reading to see the images!
The people at Milk + Soap Studio out of Asia are releasing what appears to be the first in their Sofubi Tranformers Collection From Milk + Soap Studio. The VA-001 Milk Optimus Prime is an interesting new vinyl figure that is made of clear and white opaque plastics based on the G1 style Optimus Prime character.
The small scale figure does not appear to transform, or include any other accessories. The item is priced at 1,080 JPY / $11 USD, with what looks like a release date in October. Read on to see the images in the gallery for more info.
FansProject has posted new images of the SP edition of Severo - their take on Grimlock - in his original Pre-Transformers Diaclone color scheme! No release or pricing information has been given at this time, but there's a half-dozen decent photos, including Severo hanging out with his fellow LER DinoNots. Keep reading to see!
Chris McFeely of the TFWiki and much more has posted a couple of interesting photos to Twitter this morning. First is an image from one of the Legends Series comics showing LG26 Scourge in a curious new mode: that of a two-headed winged dragon! The second image is a proof of concept, showing off the toy itself in this mode. Keep reading for more details!
Ah, Japanese Toy Show season. Today Autobase Aichi has photos from what appears to be one of the smaller shows, Super Festival 72. Besides more photos of Convobat (with charming hand-drawn "PHOTO OK!" sign), we have another look at the massive Ultimetal Ultra Magnus! Keep reading to have a look.
Imaginarium Art has shared on their Facebook page a sample render of another upcoming Transformers statue - Devastator! Having previously shown off statues for Soundwave and Ultra Magnus, as well as a render of a Rodimus Prime, Imaginarium is quickly getting attention in the Transformers community for their detailed offerings. The teaser comes with little in the way of specific detail, but we're sure more will be coming soon! Keep reading to see the image.
