TakaraTomy designer Shogo Hasui has tweeted an image showing some of the control art used in developing Victorion - or the remolds that led to Pyra Magna anyway. Featuried prominently is part of a turnaround for the Victorion head, as well as it superimposed over a CAD model of the Hot Spot mold's torso mold. It's likely this posting was inspired by the reveal of Megatronia last night, which will be Japan's first instance of this set of retools. We've mirrored the image, so click through and take a look!
Our final gallery from the SDCC and Hasbro Toy Shop exclusive Titan Force set is Sentinel Prime! Trading in a plastic runner for a clear orange tree, it is somehow even more of a visual assault than the standard version! This is imagined as Sentinel glowing with "resurrection energy", and also replaces the Autobot emblems of the retail release with the insignia of the pre-war Autobot Security Services as seen in the Megatron: Origin
comic miniseries. Keep reading to see our gallery with over 75 photos of the redecoed Sentinel Prime!
Teased a little while back by Hisashi Yuki, we now have the answer to what TakaraTomy is doing with Victorion for Unite Warriors! The next Unite Warriors "EX" release is Megatronia, a collection of seemingly new character female Decepticons, led by Megaempress, and consisting of Flowspade, Lunaclub, Moonheart, and Trickdiamond. TakaraTomy Mall has added a product page featuring basic stock photos of all the toys, which you can find mirrored below. Megatronia is an exclusive scheduled to be released in December at a price of 15,000 Yen with a preorder period from August 24th to September 26th.
We have more from the SDCC and Hasbro Toy Shop Exclusive Titan Force Boxset, this time looking at Windblade! This is an unusual crossover, using the Robots in Disguise Warrior Class mold in new deco to represent a Generations iteration of the character. With a deco based on Fortress Maximus, it's a very unique look for Windblade. And for some, this could be a first exposure to the mold in general. We'll go in to more depth on the mold a little later, but for now keep reading to see our gallery of nearly 100 photos of Windblade!
TFSource updates with new of the now up for pre-order. This is the deluxe online exclusive groove that combines with the other Protectobots (Sold Separately) to form the mighty Defensor! Combines with the following protectobots (sold separately): Deluxe Class Protectobot Blades, Deluxe Class Protectobot First Aid, Deluxe Class Protectobot Streetwise, Voyager Class Protectobot Hotspot
Big Bad Toy Store have just sent out an announce for new in-stock listings for the Transformers Generations Titan wars Return Deluxe 02 & Voyager 02 Waves figures that just went up.
The deluxes 02 wave contains Highbrow, Chromedome, Mindwipe, and Wolfwire. The voyagers will include Alpha Trion and Astrotrain in the wave 02 case. Read on for the full details and ordering links.
It's that time again! We're up to episode 4 of 8 of the Combiner Wars mini-series, and this one introduces Megatron into the mix. Where has he been since the end of the war? What's he up to? Is he more a Frank Welker or a Corey Burton Megatron? We've got a go90 link for US readers and a YouTube embed for everyone else, so keep reading to find out!
Computron is pretty neat! The ankles and other weaknesses in the legs may bother you a bit, but they don't ruin the figure for RAC. The legs aren't Menasor bad, though. It's a good looking figure, and has the most new parts in a Combiner Wars boxset since Victorion. Click here to read and watch the review!
With our thanks to Hasbro for making this available to us, we have our first gallery from the Titan Force SDCC/Hasbro Toy Shop exclusive box set! We're starting with Brainstorm, which while sometimes looked on unfavorably for being a Blurr retool really does its best to set itself apart. This version is more geared to the IDW comics colors, while the eventual Walgreens exclusive single release will be toy-inspired. We've got over 100 photos of this figure, so keep reading to check out our full gallery. And stay tuned for more coverage of this set!
We've been paying a lot of attention to Computron lately! Hot on the heels of the Combiner Wars Computron release (which RAC has been expertly covering for us!
) comes the Unite Warriors version bringing its own take to the table. Blacklai has gotten hands on a set already and posted a nice gallery, giving special attention to showing the differences between versions. Click through to see a mirrored selection of highlights in our gallery below and a link to the original blog post!
We've looked at all the individual Technobots now: Afterbreaker, Cybaxx, Lightsteed, Nosecone, Scattershot, Scrounge, and Strafe. (Alphabetical order, because why not?) Now it's time to look at the last few aspects of the set: Scattershot's torso mode, the hands and feet, and Computron itself! Keep reading for 93 photos of Computron!
With wave 1 only just really hitting its stride for in-store availability, we now have indication that wave 2 is entering the US distribution system. Silvershot has provided photos of a sighting of Deluxe Highbrow (with Chromedome just barely visible behind), and of all places it came from a Walgreens in Los Angeles! Of course these are at a premium above that which we already regularly pay, ringing up at $19.99 each. The very random nature of the tiny toy shelves at Walgreens mean this may remain somewhat isolated within the chain - but wave 2 is out there, so keep your eyes open! Check below for the photos.
Scattershot v2.0 is definitely an improvement over the Betatron version. The International Edition is going to add yet more features, but I feel like within Hasbro's typical limitations this is the best possible Scattershot we could have gotten. Click here to read and watch the review!
Coming in a little bit different format this time around, we actually have our first look at the solicitations for November's Transformers-related comics from IDW themselves! Alas this does deprive of us the full size cover previews we're used to in the catalog-style format IDW offers them in, we do have blurbs and a few
decent size cover previews for the titles including Optimus Prime
#1, More Than Meets The Eye: Revolution
#1, Till All Are One
#5, and the final issue of Revolution
itself! We've mirrored the relevant pages and sections, spo click through and have a look.
