Hasbro's website has posted new images of the Platinum Edition Blitzwing & Astrotrain! Blitzwing looks just about as good in tank mode as he did as a robot or jet... and so does Astrotrain. These recolors really have been fascinating to see, and I can't want to see if I can ask more about them at BotCon this year. Keep reading to see!
TAGHobby has posted a couple of magazine scans showing off MP-25 Tracks, now in full color and good resolution! The toy's looking sharp in both modes - all three
modes rather - and nicely poseable. We also get a nice shot of the whole package in one place, with Tracks in Flight Mode on his stand and Raoul and Blaster on the base. Don't expect anything from that Blaster but a Raoul-sized radio, because they are both tiny.

Full Metal Hero has posted a story showing that Floro Dery, the character designer for much of the G1 cartoon including The Transformers: The Movie
, is selling a new print of Unicron on Etsy. Done in 2014, the print displays a colorful, highly-detailed version of Unicron ripping a planet - perhaps Cybertron? - in half. The print is one of a kind and the asking price is $500 US. Keep reading to see and for links!
That was quick, huh? Autobase Aichi has found a small photo showing off the entire wave from Japanese retailer Nonstop. While it's difficult to make most of them out, there seems to be RID Drift and Fixit in addition to the G1 Prime, G1 Shockwave, and Beast Wars Megatron we reported on before.

The Tiny Titans minifigure line has solicited its third wave of blindbagged figures through Diamond Comics, and the PREVIEWSworld website has sample images! Revealed for this set are G1 Optimus Prime and Shockwave, but more surprisingly a Beast Wars Megatron! Most of the paint seems to have gone into the heads - robot and dinosaur - but even so it looks like fun. Keep reading to see!
Autobase Aichi has updated their previous story
with a couple more catalog scans. A second page of Cyber 7 Series figures has appeared, showing a Movie/Prime-inspired Bumblebee and also a movie-colored Grimlock. Bumblebee in particular looks to be a scaled-up Cyberverse Legion figure. Also shown is the Platinum Triple Changers set showing off Blitzwing and Astrotrain's out-of-nowhere new paint jobs. Keep reading!
By way of Autobase Aichi, a scan from a Brazilian catalog has surfaced showing off a new series of Generations figures. The Generations Cyber Series are larger figures - 7" and 11" - featuring G1-inspired character designs and simplified transformations for younger kids. Bumblebee and Optimus Prime are shown for the 11" line and Megatron for the Cyber 7 line. Autobase Aichi also speculates that perhaps that Starscream at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis
might also be a Cyber 7 figure in the offing. Keep reading to see the scan!
E-Hobby has posted better-quality images of MP-25 Tracks, including our first really good look at Raoul & Blaster! Raoul is about the same size & quality as the other MP humanoid figures, and Blaster is scaled to him - by which we mean tiny.

Hisashi Yuki continues the stream of Masterpiece Star Saber images, this time throwing the box into the mix. Boasting that the package is the same size as Masterpiece Ultra Magnus', Yuki would like to remind us that it's only two weeks until Star Saber is released in Japan. That's... what, another 5 or 600 photo tweets? Keep reading to see this one!
with ordering information! Maketoys has posted a new gallery of images of their Metrotitan figure to Facebook and confirmed the name as Dystopia! And Dystopia looks great and super-colorful, a nice contrast to the original Utopia and it's more utilitarian, Metroplexy color scheme. No details yet on pricing or availability, but we'll post them as soon as they become available. Keep reading to see the images and more details!
Autobase Aichi has posted images and details of a new Kabaya series of blind-boxed toys due in May. The DCollection set features Optimus Prime, Starscream, and Megatron, and features squatty "super-deformed" styling. There'll be chase versions of all three figures in clear plastic as well. While they're not super-articulated, they're also only roughly $25 for a case of 8 going by Japanese SRP, so they're definitely more in the small novelty toy range. Keep reading for images!
TFormers sponsor Robot Kingdom has posted a catalog image of Masterpiece Tracks! As is the case with Masterpiece, it has pretty much everything you'd want in MP-25: it has Tracks' secondary flight mode, it has a stand
for that flight mode, and it even has Raoul from the G1 episodes "Make Tracks" and "Auto-Bop" and a scale Blaster in boombox mode for him! Keep reading to see the image!
Hasbro's Greek website has posted official images for upcoming Combiner Wars figures! We've got Voyagers Hot Spot and Cyclonus plus Legends Groove, Viper, and Warpath. While no new photos of Defensor or Galvatronus are shown, these are probably the best look we've gotten at the third wave of Combiner Wars so far. Keep reading to see!
Kids Logic has posted images to their Facebook page featuring the next series of Kids Nation small-scale super deformed-style figures. Included in this assortment are Megatron, Smokescreen, Jazz, Wheeljack, and Ironhide- with a special gold-colored Megatron listed as "Extra." Release date is still vague - 2nd Quarter 2015 - but for now keep reading to see all the photos!
The Facebook group Cybertron Phillipines has posted an image of the Triple Changers set showing the G1 Blitzwing and Astrotrain molds with new decos. Blitzwing's purple now skews far more magenta, and Astrotrain has grown some large patches of bright red. You'd be tempted to write these off as early test shots in random plastic colors... except there they are on the boxart in the same color schemes. It'll definitely be interesting to see more pictures of these two, but for now keep reading to see what we've got!
