So, SDCC exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime came and went really quickly on HasbroToyShop yesterday, and we at TFormers hope that most everyone who wanted one was able to get it. But with Titans Return
Siege on Cybertron shipping the same day with Magnus Prime, we got to thinking about the amazing variety of uses and retoolings that mold family has seen over the two short years it's existed. So keep reading for a handy infographic laying out the history of the Ultra Magnus mold family!
We're getting reports in from those who were lucky enough to get a preorder in on the Titans Return
Siege on Cybertron boxset that site sponsor BigBadToyStore is now processing those preorders! It shouldn't be long now until people have Magnus Prime, Tidal Wave, Metalhawk, Pounce, and Thunderwing in hand! Keep reading for a rundown of the set's contents!
While Siege on Cybertron,
the second and final Titans Return
boxset is an exclusive of site sponsor BigBadToyStore for US distribution, ToysRUs will be handling the boxset within Canada. As evidenced by Twitter user Ryan Sheehey
picking one up in Ontario last night! Keep reading for photographic proof.
TFND has posted images of MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rod with his partner Firebolt! While the handgrip is likely a new molding to accomodate the smaller scale of modern Masterpieces, the majority of Firebolt is indeed taken from the "Offshoot" mold released with Hasbro's version of MP-9 Rodimus Prime. Keep reading for photos! This is up for pre-order now at BigBadToyStore.com
It's Decision Time for toy collectors once again as courtesy of TFND
on Facebook, we have images showing TakaraTomy's takes on the Autobot Clones, Blitzwing, and most significantly, Overlord! The latter is unsurprisingly the most changed, with a pair of new faces attached to his two
Headmasters, Mega and Giga! He also seems to have a pair of "dummy" Godmasters that store in his chest showing recreations of the originals' engines. Keep reading to see!
The Nottingham Robot Company
has posted images to their Facebook page of a new upgrade kit they'll be pre-releasing exclusively at TFNation! It's a simple kit but a good one: a pair of hand-chromed engine blocks convert any two Titan Masters into engine blocks styled after Mega and Giga, Overlord's G1 Powermasters/Godmasters! A head block is also included for Overlord's faceplate, which promises putting the face "in a more prominent position" and with "an easter egg for longtime comic book fans." Keep reading to see the announcement and images!
Twitter user @TcrackerGenmon has posted some in-hand images of Perfect Effect's PC-16 Jinrai Prime upgrade figure, and it looks really good in full color! The figure replaces the cab on either Titans Return
Powermaster Optimus Prime or Legends LG-35 Super Ginrai, and also adds true Powermaster compatibility (for use with the PC-15 upgrade set which includes a Powermaster/Godmaster Ginrai). Keep reading to see the photos!
TFW2005 has posted slides from a Hasbro presentation to press and investors naming the successor to Transformers: Robots in Disguise
: Transformers Cyberverse!
Airing in 2018, the first season is being labeled as "Chapter One," with a second "chapter" due in 2019. This is speculated by 2005 to be the rumored "G1 Redux" series, especially since it uses G1 placeholder images in the presentation slide. But all we know for certain is the name and that it will follow in RID's footsteps as an ages 6-10 show. Keep reading for more info!
Dirty secret: as much as we like Transformers that turn into recognizeable (and sometimes even working) objects, like the Device Label figures and the MicroChange side of G1... we have completely lost track of how many versions of the AU Infobar x Transformers figure there are. All we can say for sure of this particular example, thanks to TakaraTomy, is that it's the "Annin Version" and seems to have a Movie Optimus Prime-inspired deco. It'll be out in mid-December in Japan for 5400 Yen. Keep reading for photos!
TFNation has announced their very first convention exclusive! Based on G1 character Glyph - herself introduced at a BotCon 15 years ago - CT001TFN Rune is produced by MAAS toys based on their Cybertech CT001 Skiff figure, which is a Bumblebee made in the image of his Cybertronian alt-mode as seen in G1 cartoon episode "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1."

with more info! Gizmodo
has been given the first look at the HasCon exclusives, and we now know where Titans Return
Arcee is going to be available! She's a HasCon exclusive priced at $30. And, as we predicted, she comes with the diecast metal Ultra Magnus Titan Master as well! Also available at the con is the Power Bank Optimus Prime, and the article confirms that he is essentially a Laser Rod
: he has a light-up LED sword that plugs into his functional power bank! Keep reading for photos and more information on availability.
Following the teaser and an in hand photo from Facebook shortly after, we've now got the official reveal for the very Ultra Magnus-looking 7 Eleven exclusive version of MP-10 Convoy. Designated as "MP-711" we now know that it will cost 25,000 Yen, and that the order period begins on July 31, and does not appear to have an established end date. MP-711 will become available on February 28, 2018Interestingly, the sale page says repeatedly home delivery is not available, and it sounds like the item must be received from a 7 Eleven location in Japan. It's also limit 2 per person, so this might be rather costly to get hold of for the rest of the world. Keep reading to see the official images!
Now that SDCC and other minor distractions that we're assured did not actually occur have settled down and are behind us, it's back to the usual work, which brings us back to Titans Return Overlord. Following up the video review we posted last week, we've now got a complete gallery for the figure, comprising well over 250 images. In addition to the normal overviews and details of the robot and vehicle forms, you can find side by sides with Sky Shadow and a short showcase of what parts their upper body components share - spoilers: It's not many. It's all in our gallery, so click through and dig in!
Just up on their official page, Toys Alliance have posted a new image revealing their MAS-02 MEGATRON figure that will released as part of their Mega Action figure series. The image of the artists rendering shows the officially licensed non-transforming 18-inch figure design.
