Right on the heels of discovery of the NYCC teaser on Hasbro Pulse, a Wal-Mart employee calling themselves Rex_Marlowe has posted to Reddit a photo of a Wal-Mart computer screen showing a "Powermaster OP" listing among other Leader Class toys. Smart money has this as a retool of Ultra Magnus, but anything is possible. Blaster is among the listed items as well, cementing its status as a Leader class toy also, a fact most everyone had already taken for granted. Will we see Titan Wars Powermaster Optimus in New York this week? Stay with us to find out!
Finally tonight, Captured Prey has taken extra photos of the Demolishor-headed testshot of Combiner Wars Onslaught, giving us much better looks at the head sculpt. This copy retains the Bruticus combiner head, though there's no certainty that would be the case for an actual production copy, perhaps still leaving a mystery for this version of the toy. Click through to take a look at all the new photos!
Captured Prey has gotten hold of one of the early testshot leaks of Deluxe Brawl, coming soon in the Deluxe Combaticon wave. While we've seen pictures of this in color, both hand-painted and as an on-card production sample now, these photos give us a little closer look, plus show off the arm mode for the first time. Keep reading to check out all the photos!
Captured Prey's Facebook has been updated with photos of the three Combiner Wars testshots they've recently received. First up from these is Scattorshot, the Silverbolt retool revealed during SDCC to a ...less than warm reception, especially when it was announced the other Technobots were not coming with. In any event, the testshot comes off a fair bit better looking than the sample at SDCC, so click through to have a look at it!
Here's one that slipped past us this morning. Takara's official Transformers Twitter account tweeted out a photo showing off the first five Unite Warriors sets. UW-01-03 and 05 are seen as closed boxes with art on display, including the newly revealed Convoy Grand Prime box with some excellent art finding a creative way to hide both the proportion issues of the design and be visually distinct from Menasor's art. Devastator is also present, but unpackaged, perhaps meaning no sample was ready to be shown for the big guy just yet. Click through to take a look!
Sidecutter from Captured Prey has posted up a new photo featuring the testshots of Brawl and Scattershot, plus everyone's current favorite target of confused stares, the Demolishor-headed Onslaught. With New York Comic Con next week, we may learn more about if Demolishor has any particular future in the line. In the meantime, we may get to see a bit more out of Brawl soon, such as the arm mode that seems to have so far gone undocumented. Keep watching for updates!
Online retailer Toywiz has placeholder pages up for the Combiner Wars Combaticon Deluxes, and complete with official package shots. Bear in mind these are of the non-US market packages, hence the absence of comics. This does give us one of our clearest looks yet at each of these figures in their production plastic colors and paint. While these are technically 2016 Wave 1, it looks more and more likely we could be seeing these well in advance of year's end here. Click through to take a look.
Thanks to Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook, we have some nice photos of the Platinum G1 Dinobots. These are the Generations Series AOE Dinobots in classic colors and with G1-based robot heads, which for better or worse are probably the nearest we're going to get to true Classics Dinobots anywhere in the foreseeable future. Fortunately on that front, these come off looking quite nice with these decos and their retooling. Click through to check out the photos!
Earlier today we brought you the short iTunes preview for More Than Meets The Eye
issue 45, due to ship next week. In it, there's one very unusual panel depicting the characters in the form of toys in a grassy field, using a real photograph. As it turns out, Maz at TF Square One was the source of that photo, and he's written a blog post giving a behind the scenes of his involvement with the newest issue of MTMTE. Keep reading to see the panel in question, plus an excerpt from the blog and a link back to the full article!
Hisashi Yuki has tweeted out a photo of the recently revealed UW-05 combiner, TakaraTomy's version of Combiner Wars Ultra Prime. We get a better overall look at the combined form than what could be seen in the order page, though we'll likely have to wait a little while to get better looks at the individual members in better detail. But for now, click through to take a look at the combiner set due out early next year!
It may be that we have an early look at some of the production side to the Combiner Wars animation project being developed with Machinima. In a tweet tonight Eric Calderon pointed to the NYCC schedule page for the Transformers Generations panel, noting it as a first announcement of his next project, along with F.J. Desanto and George Krstic, creator of Megas XLR. Calderon and Krstic are both listed as speakers at the panel, along with Ben Montano, David Erwin, John Barber, Micahel Kelley, and Sarah Carroll. We'll know for sure soon enough, but if correct this looks like a promising start for the animated series. Click through for the original tweet.
As we reported a couple weeks ago, Air Attack Optimus Primal is being recolored in very Prime deco as a Platinum Series toy for the Year of The Monkey. Today from the Transformers Prime Taiwan Fan Group on Facebook, we have a pair of in-box photos of this figure. Showing the boxart and the figure inside, this is a somewhat clearer look than the low-res shots that revealed this toy's existence. The original post with these images has since been deleted, but we've got them mirrored, so click through and check it out!
A new Chinese auction listing recently went up for a testshot of Combiner Wars Onslaught. The listing initially offered nothing we hadn't seen before, but in the meantime a couple new photos were added which are notable for showing the second robot head designed for this Hot Spot retool: Armada Demolishor! While there is no specific guarantee this head will appear, or that it will be used as that character, it's a very interesting and unexpected choice - and it raises a question of whether there's an alternate combiner head to go with it. Keep reading to have a look at our enlarged image!
Just up are pictures and the order page for UW-05, the TakaraTomy version of Ultra Prime. Convoy Grand Prime is a mail order exclusive, to be delivered in February, with the order period taking place between September 24 and October 23. The set features the Autobot Car Deluxes we're getting now as Combiner Wars wave 4, with varying levels of deco modification (Ironhide looks nigh-identical, but then Sunstreaker...), and the normal Voyager Optimus in standard colors and no Battle Core remold parts. Keep reading for photos and more details!
Hisashi Yuki tweeted out a good look at Streetwise from the UW-03 set, setting it alongside its counterpart from the Combiner Wars line to highlight to differences. With TakaraTomy having added a gate in the mold so the thighs and biceps no longer need to share an unpaintable plastic color, Unite Warriors is looking good in robot mode, but may be just a bit too plain as a police car. Keep reading to see both images!
