Following being on display at Super Festival 66, Million Publishing's HeroXnet has tweeted two promotional images of mailaway exclusives Shouki and Go-Shooter. Showing both toys along with their partner character figures both in regular display stance and action oriented poses, they're doing a good job selling both, even if Go-Shooter is arguably the one with the greater degree of interest right now. Keep reading to check out both full size images!
At Super festival 66, the fourth wave of Transformers Cloud figures were on display.

Go-Shooter is a recolor of the Nightbeat remold of Bumblebee/Goldfire, with a recolored instance of Legends Bumblebee's Targetmaster partner as Shuta, while Shouki is the previously seen Trainbot recolor of Classics Astrotrain. This is our first look at a physical sample of Go-Shooter, and we can expect more to follow soon. Click through to see the full size image.
From the RocketPunchArmy Youtube channel we have an early look at Chromia, upcoming wavemate to Generations Arcee. A substantial retool of Transformers Prime's main line Arcee toy, Chromia has been the source of a lot of unexpected interest to see how this unusual instance of major after-the-fact remolding will play out in practice. Watch the embedded video to get a good look at this figure in-hand!
The @TF_pr Twitter account has posted a silhouette of three upcoming Transformers with a message that reads, in part, "Finally, the warrior women are here!" Even without that message, the silhouettes are clearly those of Arcee, Chromia and Windblade. The Legends assortment is the latest successor to the Henkei! Henkei! Transformers/Transformers United/Transformers Generations lines that have run parallel to Classics/Universe 2/Generations in Japan. Keep reading to see the Tweet!
Planet Iacon has shared several images of the upcoming Roadbuster recolor from the next wave of Transformers Cloud.

Having been floating around somewhat nebulously since their original discovery, the two multipack Protectobot recolor sets are finally nearing a release. Thanks to Come, See Toys we have official images by way of Hasbro Singapore of the two-pack Hot Spot and Blades, and three pack First Aid, Groove, and Streetwise. Amazon has also opened preorders for the latter set, noting availability on October 1st and calling them an "Asia Kids Day" set. So while these seem made for the Asian market, it looks like fans elsewhere will have a chance at them, if the two-pack also appears on Amazon soon.
From TakaraTomy's website, we have updated looks at the Japanese release versions of Tailgate and Swerve, and Brainstorm. Previously seen in mockups based on Hasbro product, these small photos now depict the Legends-version deco, with darker metallic colors on Swerve and Tailgate, and a general increase of paint work on Brainstorm, both for greater original toy accuracy, and just general enhancement. Keep reading to see both (unfortunately small) images!
Having just reinstated free shipping for orders over $50, Hasbro Toy Shop has released a new coupon code good for 20% off action figure purchases including Transformers.

For full details and the coupon code, keep reading!
Did you ever look at Generations Jetfire and think to yourself, "that toy doesn't have nearly enough chrome on it"? Well, The Malaysia branch of Hasbro Asia would seem to agree, as Planet Iacon has shared an image of a contest flyer to win a lucky draw version of the toy coated in silver chrome ...in addition to all the typically red chromed elements. Yes, now three lucky Malaysian fans could have the chance to win a Jetfire covered entirely in chrome! Check out the full size image below!
Facebook has given us an early gift and posted the 30th anniversary alternate cover for MTMTE 33 - due to hit shops next Wednesday! - on their Facebook page. This cover features art by Sarah Stone and depicts Tarn hovering over Fulcrum as liquid energon drips from his face. This scene is Sarah's homage to "season 1" of MTMTE, specifically calling back to the "Scavengers" two-parter that comprised issues 7 and 8 of the title. ...and which may very well tie in to the issue this cover is attached to. Check it out below, and check back here next week where we'll bring you the first review of issue 33!
The iTunes store has updated with the first preview for Robots in Disguise 33, due to hit shops on September 24th, and the quick three pages treat us to the return of a familiar face who's been absent from the series for quite a long time now. Just after the preview went live, Sarah Stone who is contributing to the art for this issue posted clean versions of the panels seen in the preview, without text or other visual effects. We've mirrored both the preview and the clean pages, so keep reading to see them!
