The SDCC 2015 Combiner Hunters
boxset remains one of our all-time favorite SDCC exclusives, providing new color schemes for Arcee, Windblade, and Chromia and equipping them with wonderfully ridiculous gigantic weapons for fighting Combiners. Recently, artist Ken Christiansen
posted his lineart for the packaging to Facebook, showing off both his individual images for the characters as well as the finished composition. All this, plus package lineart for Titans Return

While Cyber Battalion Shockwave was seemingly just released in Taiwan, Weibo user NOTRAB
has the first in-hand image of what appears to be a production sample! (The giveaway is the numbers printed across the torso - that's a common thing with Hasbro display samples.) The figure is displayed alongside a Masterpiece Shockwave, and while it's never going to match up to MP-29 in terms of complexity it's honestly quite nice in terms of styling.

Gao Sheng Wu
, by way of Autobase Aichi,
has posted in-hand images of Cyber Battalion class Sideswipe and Shockwave! Shockwave looks particularly nice, turning into a space jet that reminds us to a minor degree of his Fall of Cybertron
form. Keep reading to see the images!
Thanks to Alfes2010, we've got a selection of nice photos of the just-released in Japan Targetmaster Hot Rod Masterpiece figure. The photos shared via Twitter show off MP-40 in a standard overview of the robot and vehicle modes, including weapons attachment options like the new Targetmaster connection on the hood of the car. We also have some side by side shots with the original MP-28 Hot Rod, which serves to demonstrate very effectively the deco changes between releases. We've mirrored a number of these photos, which you can find below!
From a Japanese hobby magazine via Singapore fan group Planet Iacon,
we have an image that seems to show chest and shoulder design art for a new G1-styled Optimus Prime figure. Is this a new Masterpiece version 3.0? Or something else entirely? It'll be a good while before we know, but meanwhile, keep reading to see the image!

on Twitter, we've now seen new Transformers G1 products from Super7! Most intriguing is the Keshi Surprise
series, blindboxed minifigures based on the M.U.S.C.L.E.
format known in Japan as "Keshi" or "Keshi Gomu." Also present are 12" Super Cyborgs
which are G1 Optimus Prime and Megatron figures with transparencies to show their inner workings. All this, plus drinking glasses and enamel pins. Keep reading to see!
The smallest gallery to share is that for the standard Masterpiece line. The newest entrant shown is the MP-17+ Prowl featuring animation-inspired deco and which it seems is due to get a same-month release by Hasbro going by indications from some of the US retailers. Also out at the show were Shadow Panther, with a copy of Cheetor out as a point of comparison. And rounding out the upcoming product was Dinobot, making most things around it look small. It seems that several other items were included in the display, but in the form of exclusives and other long-since released products to represent the line. You can check out the photos of the newer products below.
Just in form Toy Fair 2018, we have news of two new Transformers figures from Flame Toys. What appear to be non-transforming editions of Optimus Prime and Starscream. These look a lot like the designs we saw from their Kuro Kara Kuri Drift with extended articulation and weapons.
Update: these are said to be offered as model kits that you assemble yourself. No word on their price and release date at this time. Read on to see the images of both figures.
Remember Mighty Muggs? One of Hasbro's attempts to get in on the lucrative vinyl minifigures market, Mighty Muggs was moderately successful about 10 years ago and then more or less disappeared with the exception of the occasional show-exclusive. But in the intervening years Funko conquered the world with PoP! vinyls, so Hasbro's going to try once again for a piece of that pie. Keep reading for the reveal of the new, improved Mighty Muggs courtesy of Screeen Rant
Coming to us throw Dengeki Hobby, we have the first reveal of an upcoming Masterpiece exclusive. MP-17+ follows along the likes of red Alert and Sideswipe as an "anime" colors version of Masterpiece Prowl. The deco is most distinctly different with the blue tint to the windows as well as more simplified markings to be better in line with how the character was represented in the cartoon. Along with that, this release will include the shoulder rocket accessories that were previously a bonus item for purchasing through a specific Japanese retailer. MP-17+ Prowl appears to be a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive, due for release in September. Click through to see the photos!
Statue Day continues as Statue Season, it seems! Today Imaginarium Art
has updated their Facebook with a promotional image for "Judgment," one of the five faces (of darkness, natch) seen on the Quintessons in G1 Transformers. Promising a respondent to the image that they will formally announce the piece "very soon," no doubt Imaginarium will first post designs for the other four faces first. Keep reading to see!
has been pretty busy on Facebook this last week! The statue makers have posted images of a massive Nemesis Prime statue, as well as a smaller (12") Optimus Prime statue that is piloting a new line titled The Legacy of Cybertron
. Also shown is a work-in-progress statue of G1 Jazz! Keep reading to see the images.

The unnamed HS13 is patterned after the G1 Throttlebot, and as is appropriate to his origins is represented by an all-gold recolor of their Bumblebee figure with a new headsculpt. The figure comes with a fair number of accessories including an extra Bumblebee head and a tiny Ravage! Click through to see the photos.
Loopaza Mega Store
has posted images of the packed-in paperwork for LG-60 Legends
Series Overlord! The figure's bio card and (mercifully Safe For Work) comic are on display, showing off the new tooling for the figure's chest and Headmaster robots as well as a new mode created for the comic. ...but, kind of an expensive
one. Keep reading for details!
