Looks like the two foot tall Unicron is not the end for statuary from Soldier Story. The generously-described "lamp" that depicts Unicron standing atop Cybertron's surface is apparently to be joined in future by a planet mode Unicron as well. No indication of its specific light up elements yet, though it seems to be more of a prototype, at least judging by its stand being partly comprised of Bandai Action Base parts. Also shown was a grey prototype for Rodimus Prime unleashing the power of the Matrix. It's a bit easier to guess what will light up on that one! Check out the pictures below.
Loopaza on Facebook has shared out the Transformers-relevant pages from this month's Figure King Magazine. We got a preview of it a couple days ago, focused on the Legends Series Kup and Hot Rod. These new high res scans show very well the detail of the figures' new parts and Targetmasters in testshot form. Also included is exclusive Black Convoy, a DOTM Shockwave statue, and the current campaign sword for The Last Knight toys, plus a full page article about the movie. We've got the pages below, plus a crop out of the Legends testshot panel, so click through and check them out!
Dengeki Hobby has posted a new article (in Japanese) about Legends Series Targetmaster Kup! The accompanying photos are largely the ones we saw the other day,
but they did sneak three new ones in there: one of Kup's Robot Mode, one of his Targetmaster partner Recoil's Gun Mode, and one of Kup's Vehicle Mode. Keep reading to see all three!
Hallmark's online "pop culture" store is currently showing previews of a wide variety of ornaments and other licensed novelty items. Among the selection is a reveal of their next Transformers ornament, representing Soundwave's G1 toy, joining Optimus, Megatron and Grimlock in the regularly growing lineup. Only a very small image is available right now, and the item is only listed as "coming soon" with a price of $15.95. We've mirrored the image, click through and have a look.
Imaginarium Art has posted to their Facebook that their Changeable Pose Statue of Ultra Magnus is up for preorder now! At $1,250 SGD (about $900 USD), the limited edition of 388 is probably wise. But hey, looking is free and it's pretty impressive to look at! Keep reading to see the latest images.
So, when TakaraTomy designated the Legends versions of Titans Return Hot Rod and Kup as Targetmasters, they weren't kidding! Each of them comes with a Targetmaster partner in addition
to their Titan Master/Headmaster, and on top of that Kup seems to sport a new set of arms and new faceplate that work well with his new paintjob to be a better representation of the animated character than the US release. Keep reading to see!
Via Weibo (by way of Autobase Aichi for those of us without Weibo accounts), we now have a small, low-res look at the boxart for Titans Return Trypticon! It's a pretty nice shot of the dinosaur city rampaging across Cybertron, with what appears to be Galvatron and Sixshot behind him. Hopefully we'll get a proper debut of this artwork soon, but until then keep reading for a sneak preview! UPDATE:
The image of Trypticon's special trading card is now available as well!
TakaraTomy has announced another giveaway in their Cybertron Satellite stores, this time a metallic file folder being given away to support the release of MP-36 Megatron. Having begin on April 1st, the file will be given away while supplies last with purchases at the Takara-affiliated brick and mortar stores in Japan. Keep reading for more details!
Just when you thought we were done with collector coins, Hasbro Asia (by way of the Toy Scope and Hobby Ark Toy Store Facebook pages) has minted a new coin for the imminent release of MP-36 Megatron v2! Patterned after Megatron's chestplate, the case holds a coin with a very nice likeness of the Decepticon leader. Keep reading to see!
Weibo user NOTRAB has shared out a few photos of a sample of the Soldier Studio Unicron "lamp". In reality a really big light up statue of Unicron more than anything one might realistically call a lamp, a fact reinforced by its pricepoint of many hundreds of dollars. However, as we can clearly see in these new photos, for the degree of detail combined with the overall size of the piece, the price is probably earned, at least for those who enjoy collecting Transformers statuary. We've mirrored the photos, keep reading to take a look!
Autobase Aichi has shared - presumably once again by way of Vincent Chen - in-hand photos of Cyber Battalion Jetfire! Out of package it's a fair bit easier to tell that it's based on the Cyber Battalion Starscream figure, but it's still pretty nice! Also in the photo set are pictures of Cyber Commander Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in the current packaging style. Keep reading to see!
By way of Autobase Aichi, a fan by the name of Vincent Chen has made it known that the oddball Generations Cyber Battalion line has gotten a second wave! In this wave, we've got large, simplified figures of Prowl and Jetfire. These figures are generally not available in the US - with the exception of some Universal Studios exclusives, so good luck if you want either of these. Keep reading to see the image!
TakaraTomy has posted a quick three minute video to their Youtube channel featuring the licensed Infobar mobile phone Transformers figures from Japanese provider au (read more about this here)
. The video features a prototype of the Optimus Prime phone, being used to demonstrate the transformation from handset to robot.

Site Sponsor TFSource has posted images for Generation Toy's GT-05 Leaders set! This set, priced at $69.99 and due between April and May, features Legends-scale renditions of G1 Optimus Prime and Megatron - both of which look really good and quite poseable for their size. Keep reading to see!
