Thanks to Radio Free Cybertron's Melllvarr, we have some new shots of Combiner Wars Liokaiser. The US release of the set is not until November, when it will be an Entertainment Earth exclusive, but it is currently available in Asia, and thus from some import retailers. Via his Twitter, Melllvarr has provided shots of each figure in robot and vehicle mode, closeups of their face sculpts, plus of course the combined Liokaiser. You can keep reading to check it all out for yourself!
The rest of Hayato Sakamoto's Megatronia tie-in comic has been released! And there's some serious weirdness within. When we left off, MegaEmpress had separated Grand Galvatron and Lynx Master with her rail cannon. Now MoonHeart uses her "Healing Pheromone" ability on the defeated Autobots, and... it just gets kinda weird. Keep reading to see!
Chinese-language toy news site Toy-People (motto: "I Have More Toys Than Your Kids") has posted images of a new Asia-exclusive sticker sheet for Titans Return Wave 2! Sporting stickers for the Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader classes, the set is maybe not as desirable as the Wave 1 set with its remedies for low-contrast figures like Scourge and Blurr, but there's some very nice touches on here as well. Keep reading for selected photos!
Autobase Aichi has posted some sample pages from a Unite Warriors Megatronia comic by Hayato Sakamoto! Perhaps the most interesting part is how they've decided that MegaEmpress' ladder is a railcannon specifically designed to disengage the limbs of combiners. Neat concept! Though it's entertaining to watch her intimidate and terrify UW Cyclonus as well. Keep reading to see the images.
Site sponsor RobotKingdom has posted package shots for this month's helping of Legends Series releases! Blaster, Rewind & Nightbeat, Wheelie & Goshooter, Weirdwolf, and Fortress Maximus all sport different paint schemes than their Generations Titans Return counterparts - and in Fort Max's case has new sound chip sounds - the details of which we'll presumably know soon! Keep reading to see the images.
Thanks to Oku we have a first look at the third wave of Titans Return Deluxes on card! While Breakaway (Getaway) is only shown from the back, we do get direct looks at the other three figures - Hot Rod and Firedrive, Triggerhappy and Blowpipe, and Twinferno and Daburu. Twinferno is a renamed Doublecross, while the Titan Master has been named based on the Japanese phonetic pronunciation of the English word "double". A rumor appeared early this morning that wave 3 might be available as early as November, and these package samples seem to support that idea! Click through and take a look.
Emiliano Santalucia has posted the original art for Generations Alpha Trion to his Facebook page! Interestingly, Santalucia reports that these sketches were done years before the Titans Return line and at that stage, there was no intent for there to be a third mode. The lion mode also looks a fair sight more organic than what we ultimately got - and it's a pity we didn't get that nifty staff. Keep reading to see the images!
Brawn has needed a good update pretty much forever. And the good news? He's got a really great toy here with the best weapon mode the Titan Master vehicles have yet produced. However, it's definitely not the proper update you probably hoped for. It could be the start
of one, though - all you have to do is pick a body for him. Click here to see the gallery for Brawn!
Hisashi Yuki has turned to GDO Brawl for help in making a difficult announcement: his Twitter account will no longer spotlight upcoming TakaraTomy Transformers products. As best we can understand, this appears to have been an official business decision and not Yuki's own choice. Keep reading for our interpretations of the mechanical translations of Yuki's Tweets.
Apeface is a Titan Master with a few minor weaknesses... when taken as just another Titan Master set. But taken as a World's Smallest Transformers
Apeface, he's pretty great. Plus all three of his Titan Master vehicle's modes - gorilla, jet, laser crossbow gun thing - are at least decent. So he's definitely worth your five bucks! Click here to see the image gallery for Apeface!
TalaraTomy Mall has updated the listing page for UW-EX Megatronia, the Decepticon redeco of the Victorion components. A sample image of the packaging gives us our first look at the box art for this set, which follows the particular stylistic cues we've all come to expect of these pieces at this point. Along with this are updated stock photos for the toys, showing minorly tweaked colors that we can expect to be more in step with what the actual toys will look like once the set is released in late December. You can keep reading to see all of it for yourself!
Shared by Planet Iacon, we have a look inside Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention which had a small display of TalkaraTomy's upcoming merchandise. Masterpiece Inferno, anime colors red Alert, and Optimus Primal were present - giving a decent chance to see Primal's size relative to an Autobot car. Also on hand was a sample of Lynxmaster, the Unite Warriors Sky Reign, plus November's run of Legends, Chromedome, Mindwipe and Highbrow. You can find all the pictures from the display on our gallery below!
Artist and designer Emiliano Santalucia has posted some new pieces to his Facebook page. The latest offerings feature his original design work for Titans Return Powermaster Optimus prime. While between this stage and where the toy eventually went, details were altered for various purposes, you can see a great deal of this design is reflected in the final toy. And in some small parts it seems like TakaraTomy's Super Ginrai may have adopted other aspects! Click through to see the art.
TFW2005 user Lambi
has posted a photo of a new Titans Return advertisement spotted in a Melbourne bus stop! It's a really nice image of Galvatron, and since the initial posting artist Marcelo Matere has come forward to let us know he did the lineart for the image. Keep reading for the image and the Tweet!
Sage, scribe... swordsman? Alpha Trion's looking a bit more aggressive than we last saw him. Taking as much or more inspiration from a pair of collector's club figures as it does his original character design, Alpha Trion has his charms... but I'd be lion if I said he was my ideal rendition of the character. Click here for 84 images of Alpha Trion!
