Hisashi Yuki has tweeted out a new look at Unite Warriors Bruticus, giving one of the clearest views so far of the TakaraTomy exclusive edition of the combiner with shuttle Blast Off. However, what's worth note here isn't the photo itself so much, it's the message going along with it. In the accompanying tweet, Yuki notes that Bruticus should be on display at the TakaraTomy booth at Wonderfest on Sunday, which means we're likely to get out first proper looks at the full color Japanese version Combaticons as early as Saturday night, relative to US time. Keep reading to see the black and white photo.
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted a pair of new photos to their preorder page for Unite Warriors Bruticus - the first color photos of TakaraTomy's version so far! The photos aren't particularly large or high-quality, but a few things are evident - such as Vortex not having bright yellow missiles on his forearms. Keep reading to have a look!
Adam Pawlus of 16bit.com has posted a confirmation that the version of Onslaught in the Wave 2 Voyager case with Sky Lynx is unchanged from the Wave 1 version, and does not have the animation-accurate Bruticus parts that were anticipated to be on the second release. Whether we get the intended running change or not down the road is unknown - but don't go buying a second Onslaught just yet expecting the alternate colors. Keep reading for the confirmation tweet!
Fan shajaki has reported spotting the just recently revealed Planet of Junk Clash set in their local Toys R Us in Edmonton, Alberta. While the contents of the set are know and we've already seen pictures, what this sighting gives us is pricing info, and it's a rough one. The set was seen at $109.99 CAD, which just about equals $80 USD. The price may vary a bit from the direct exchange rate, but in any case it's looking like this pack of three older Deluxes is gonna set you back quite a bit if it's something you're after - and it makes the upcoming Cyclonus with Sweeps set just a bit more worrying as well!
Once again we're getting low quality leaks for upcoming things. While we've seen an official (and far, far better) reveal of Soundwave already, making this over-leveled black and white image pretty pointless, we do get a slightly fuller look at Alpha Trion's art, albeit also in black and white and level-adjusted half to death. As RAC had already speculated based on the low res crop, there are small signs this figure may share engineering with Galvatron, though we'll need to wait for a proper reveal to begin to determine that for certain.

Thanks to Lastmaximal on the Allspark forums who has shared news and images of the Transformers Platinum edition Optimus Prime vs Megatron 1986 movie theme 2-Pack. The images show the boxed figures packed in robot mode of the Classics molds in chrome color theme. The box-flap art of Optimus Prime giving it to good ol' Megtron right on the chin offers a nice depiction of the classic Sherman Dam scene from the Generation 1 cartoon. Read on to see the boxed images for the full look below.
As it was last year, a fan going by "Marvelous" has attended the Hasbro exhibit at the Toy Fair event getting ready to wrap up in Germany. She has collected information and shared it with TFW2005, and although security was reportedly tighter this year than last - hopefully including keeping well away from windows this time - there is some interesting info presented. This should serve as at least a partial preview of what's to be seen in New York in two weeks, so keep reading to find out more!
By way of the unusual source of Google Books, we have the full length preview for issue 49 of More Than Meets The Eye. While the issue is evidently not due to hit shops until February 10th, we can go ahead and check out the opening few pages that'll wrap up this final story before the book hits the 50 issue mark. Be sure to watch here early on release week for the first review of the issue, and until then keep reading if you want to take a look at the preview!

We have a quick few new photos of the figures from the Platinum Edition Planet of Junk Clash set. Hot Rod and Wreck-Gar get the most attention, with Scrapheap appearing only as a motorcycle for Wreck-Gar - and looking mostly indistinguishable thanks to their shared plastic colors. While we wait to see a more comprehensive look, this does give us a bit better sense of the decos for the toys. Click through to see the mirrored photos.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: It’s that season again, Toy Fair is coming, and with it leaks and blurry images are on the upswing. This week we get our first glimpses of Titans Return Mindwipe, Scourge, Chromedome and Alpha Trion. Plus we speculate on what’s left for Toy Fair 2016, discuss the rest of this week’s news and more!
You remember that time Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, and Bumblebee all turned into one big robot, right? Pepperidge Farm Kabaya remembers. Kabaya's next assortment is something labeled "Transformers Block Wars" in the magazine scan posted by @p2099 on Twitter. Whether this indicates the modular combining ability or a connection to Kre-O, it's tough to say - but the sculpts seem to be based on the budget Cyber Battalion figures. Keep reading to see the combined form of the four most recognizeable Transformers characters!
Autobase Aichi has collected a series of blurry images that are circulating of upcoming Titans Return figures! Besides the most recognizeable things - Scourge, Mindwipe, and Chromedome's head - we've also got what appears to be a Voyager-class Alpha Trion figure! Keep reading for more details.
