e-Hobby has posted a preorder page for their new followup exclusive to Convobat, Magna Convoy
! Magna Convoy is a recolor of 2006's oft-reused Classics Voyager Optimus Prime mold in a blue and black color scheme that resembles the cab of Diaclone Powered Convoy, AKA the original toy release of Ultra Magnus in the color scheme now given over to the Delta Magnus character. He also includes a "Matrix Sword" from the Titans Return Voyager Alpha Trion mold as well as a shield from Deluxe Mindwipe. Keep reading for his mechanically-translated bio!
TakaraTomy's @TF_pr account on Twitter has posted a new image of Legends Series LG35 Super Ginrai, due out at the end of the month! This heavily remodeled version of Titans Return Leader-class Powermaster Optimus Prime is looking good, and will be released in Japan on the 28th of this month. Keep reading to see the image!
Asian blogger masterandy
has posted a series of in-hand images of Year Of The Rooster Optimus Prime! A reissue of Hybrid Style Convoy, Rooster Prime is a nice little figure with a ton of accessories. Keep reading to see the images!
Rounding out the wave for us today is Sawback. This is an adaptation of Lione, a toy-only character from The Headmasters
line in Japan which was a lion robot that turned in to a spare Headmaster. Titan Master Sawback is a humanoid little robot, but comes with a lion vehicle with a surprisingly effective shield mode, and charmingly goofy vehicle form. Between that and the effectiveness of the Titan Master integration in the animal mode, Sawback feels like the strongest whole package of the wave. We have over 100 photos of it, so keep reading to see our full gallery below!
Our third participant in today's mini-marathon of Titans Return galleries is Titan Master Fangry. This emulates the wolf-bat monster form of the original toy, and adds a dragon for good measure! There's a gun mode as well, but there's really nothing good about that. You can see all of this, plus of course the Titan Master in use as an auxiliary head in our gallery of nearly 100 photos! Keep reading to see that below, and of course keep watching for the conclusion of the Titan Master wave 3 galleries - we've saved the best for last!
Wave 3 of the Titan Masters features one unmodified redeco of an earlier toy. Overboard is a straight recolor of Crashbash from the first wave, so there's not anything new to be seen here aside from the colors. It should be noted that this use of the mold has a somewhat gummy feeling around the joints and hinges. Whether that be mold fatigue or a quirk of the plastic in this color is unclear. Between that and the lack of new parts, you may consider skipping this figure. To help you with that decision, click through and have a look through our gallery of 85 photos of Titan Master Overboard!
Like Clobber before it, we have in wave 3 a Dinobot by any other name. The Swoop-inspired Ptero focuses almost its entire energy on doing the pterosaur thing, much to the detriment of the vehicle and weapon modes. In this gallery of more than 80 photos, you can see for yourself how little the vehicle component actually transforms. But if you need a Swoop-looking robot head to attach to some body, Ptero does a fairly good job on that front! Click through now to see the full gallery below.
We've been getting a slow but steady trickle of Transformers: The Last Knight
merchandise news, most notably regarding the new Voyager-scaled Optimus Prime and the Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet. Now, thanks to the Taipei Movie & Toy Convention, we can see in-package images of the latter! Looks like Last Knight
packaging isn't terribly far removed from Age of Extinction
- though we can hope it will be a bit easier to tell the Generations figures from the One Step Changers at a glance. Keep reading to see the images!
Once again thanks to translations by Sanchimaru and image editing (and some localization) by Jalaguy, we have the conclusion to Hayato Sakamoto's Unite Warriors web comic story. While this jam packed nine pages does conclude the story that's been ongoing for a portion of the Unite Warriors line, it needn't necessarily mean the line itself is coming to its end. Especially when there are still alternate toolings of Combiner Wars molds TakaraTomy hasn't touched yet! In any case, you can see the concluding chapter mirrored below, and click here
for the translated version of the previous chapter!
As we mentioned in the post about the new PR image of Mindwipe,
it's new toy day in Japan! And the ever-talented Alfes2010 has posted images of his freshly acquired Legends series Chromedome! Sporting a new deco, a new Titan Master faceplate as compared to Titans Return
Deluxe Chromedome, and a newly-decoed Titan Master vehicle, Chromedome is the one Japanese figure your Headmasters can't fight without. Keep reading to see!
This would appear to be it: the second half of Unite Warriors Ruination's tie-in comic by artist Hayato Sakamoto (More Than Meets The Eye
#s 39, 44, 48-9) shows the battle between Ruination and Scourge Grand Prime to prevent Unicron from absconding with the entire planet Cybertron as his new body! While a translation is not yet available, this installment also comes to a definitive end - is Baldigus the last Unite Warriors release? Keep reading to see the pages!
TakaraTomy has posted a new image of Legends Mindwipe, who is more or less being released at this very second in Japan
! With a ship date of 11/26, Mindwipe finishes out the trio of Decepticon Headmasters as seen in the anime Transformers: The Headmasters.

If you're looking for more bargains on slightly out of date Transformers toys you may have passed on previously, it looks like a new batch of products are filtering out to closeout stores in the US. Today we spotted at Ross a quantity of Combiner Wars Leader Class Skywarp for $19.99, as well as RID Mini-Con Deployer Drift and Fracture at $8.99 a piece. Alongside the recent supply of Combiner Wars Voyagers and box sets, and it looks like the holiday shopping season may have a nice range of Transformers to choose from at lower prices! Click through for the photographic proof!
Via Robot Kingdom on Facebook we've got packaging images for Platinum Edition Unicron. This release of the Supreme Class Unicron toy again features the remolded parts to improve resemblance to Unicron's appearance in the G1 cartoon, and looks to remain very similar to the deco seen on the Amazon Exclusive US release several years ago. You can see package front and back, plus with the front flap opened to reveal the figure within. All the photos are mirrored below, so click through and have a look!
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted images of the three TakaraTomy Legends series figures coming out at the end of this week: Chromedome, Highbrow, and Mindwipe! Each has a new headsculpt inspired by the character's appearance in Transformers: The Headmasters,
and new deco when compared to their Titans Return Deluxe releases. Each also comes with one of the Titan Master vehicles in coordinated colors. Keep reading to see the images!
