In the second of five comic pages posted to the listing for e-Hobby's Legends Series Convobat figure today, Convobat transforms and makes short work of Wrecker Hook! Watching from a security monitor somewhere, Straxus is definitely not happy... less so when he sees Headmaster Megalligator working with Convobat! Keep reading to see.
Astrotrain is very clearly Sentinel Prime... or rather, Sentinel Prime was obviously a "pretool" of Astrotrain, considering just how good a rendition of the G1 cartoon character this is. Sentinel Prime's combat earmuffs even make sense now as the blocks on Astrotrain's shoulders! As with Sentinel, this is a solid if basic figure that does everything it tries to do pretty well. Click here to see 94 photos of Astrotrain and his Titan Master partner Darkmoon!
Our next entry in photography of Titans Return Deluxe wave 2 is Highbrow! Sharing parts and engineering with Scourge, but in a way where you wouldn't realize it most of the time without looking at them side by side. As it has been with many things recently, this goes beyond the common idea of "retooling" to get from one to the next. However, while Chromedome rose above its origins as an engineering retread, Highbrow may not have pulled the trick off so well. We have over 100 photos for you to check out, and look for a proper review coming soon! Keep reading to see the gallery...
There's only one `80s Triple-Changer that we've yet to get in the modern line: Broadside, the figure that changes from aircraft carrier to jet to robot. TFND has just posted an image to their Facebook page of a new Titans Return figure that looks very much to be a modern Broadside! The blue cockpit is correct, as is the general gray, red and dark gray color scheme. The earliest this could possibly be released is in the second 2017 wave, so this is quite an early find! Keep reading to see the photo.
Fresh out of US online retail, we've got our first gallery for wave 2 of Deluxe Titans Return! We're starting with Chromedome, who is the most obviously similar to a prior toy. In this case it's the Dead End/Streetwise/etc mold family from which most of the toy's engineering is borrowed. However, don't let that mislead you, as this build sees all of those tricks refined just a bit, in to a very satisfying, solid product! Look forward to a full review coming soon, and for now check out our photo gallery with 123 images in the full article below!
Megatronia is a combiner figure made up of five female Transformers.
Megaempress is a voyager sized figure that transforms from robot to truck and wields a large axe. She makes up the main body of Megatronia.
Flowspade and Trickdiamond are deluxe sized figures that are each armed with powerful hand weapons. They both transform into speedsters and become the legs of Megatronia.
Making up the arms of Megatronia are two more deluxe sized figures, Lunaclub and Moonheart, each armed with large swords and both transform into helicopters.
With Hasbro's Computron not even in stock for two weeks, we're about to see the launch of Unite Warriors Computron which will hit Japanese retailers on August 27th. Some online stores have already gotten their supplies and begun filling preorders, while retailers elsewhere in the world won't be far behind! To make sure everyone knows, Hisashi Yuki has posted what will probably be the last early photo, with the assembled Computron posed alongside its box. You can check that image out below - keep reading!
Site sponsor Robotkingdom is expecting some big stuff in a couple of days. Due to start shipping on the 27th of August, Masterpiece MP31 Delta Magnus and UW-08 Computron will both include their Hasbro Asia collector coins! They've posted images of both, which we've mirrored here. Keep reading to see!
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!
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!
