From a variety of sighting reports it looks like the Titan Master assortment is finally appearing at brick and mortar retail in the US. Both of the first two assortments are being found at different stores, with Target seeming to be the current store of choice for wave 1, including Nightbeat, Crashbash, and more. Meanwhile Toy R Us seems to have skipped ahead to wave 2. For those looking for a hunt, we have the Target DPCI number for this new pricepoint, and a link to an inventory tracker site to help point you in the right direction. Keep reading!
Adam Pawlus of 16bit.com and Entertainment Earth has posted to his site about the upcoming Platinum Edition Liokaiser! He's clarified that the price on Liokaiser will be closer to $119.99 - a bit higher than the average Combiner Wars boxset but not unreasonably so in our opinion. He also said that, to his knowledge, Liokaiser will close out the Combiner Wars line in the US. Click on through for more info!

We're just out from the Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars panel. Here is the report from the panel with many of the producers, and voices actors from the show that will debut on August 2, 2016. Read on for the full report below with lots details and previews.
Perfect Effect's Master Sword accessory for Titans Return Fortress Maximus is making its way to retail already, so that means it's time to show off their next add on for the big guy.
Seemingly based heavily on the giant gun made for their Warden figure, PC-14 "The Titans Cannon" stands in for the large Fortress Maximus rifle depicted in the Hasbro retail release's boxart, but which was nowhere to be found in any instance of the toy.
It remains to be seen if this really is Warden's cannon with a new handle part, but either way if you feel your Titan needs more weaponry, options are opening up! Keep reading for the product image.
DNA Designs has posted renders showing a new upgrade item they'll be offering. Joining the new field of upgrade parts for this year's Titan Class toy, DNA Designs is working on super articulated hands to replace the only reasonably articulated hands the toy comes with. The render shows also small guns incorporated in to the hands to emulate at least one feature of the original Fortress Maximus toy. The image also promises more to come, perhaps hinting at plans for additional upgrades for the toy. Keep reading to see the design render!
It's been questioned and suspected since the reveal of the San Diego Comic Con exclusive Titan Force set. But with Hasbro's reps at Botcon being tight-lipped about it, there was just enough doubt to cause some worry. But it looks like we can rest easy as we have evidence now for the general retail release of Titans Return Brainstorm. While the SDCC version will have unique coloring, it looks like there will be a much easier - and less expensive - option forthcoming for this retool! Keep reading for more info and photo evidence!
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has put up a preorder page for a new release of Unicron! The Platinum Edition preorder, set at $129.90 USD, is due to arrive in December. Not much else is known about this upcoming figure, but we'll tell you what we know and what we can safely assume after the jump.
Videogamer.com reports that the Taiwanese rating body for video games has recently assigned ratings to a number of Activision games from the previous console generation for release on PS4 and Xbox One. Among them is High Moon Studios' excellent Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
! It's unknown exactly when the games will see current-gen release, but it's not the first time Taiwan has inadvertently broken news about upcoming titles. Keep reading for more details!
We have a tiny bit of new info about TakaraTomy's use of the Combiner Wars Sky Lynx mold. Revealed in the customary silhouette, their as-yet-unnamed take on Sky Reign seems mostly similar to the US version in molds, save for the replacement of Smokescreen with a use of the First Aid body type.
Today offers no greater insight to character identities, but we do have the product code, UW-EX, and a date for orders to begin, June 9th. This looks like another TakaraTomy Mall exclusive - though as usual we expect mainland Asia to be general retail for easy import. Stay tuned for more info!
A short time ago this evening we may have finally had the release date for Deluxe Class Groove revealed to us! The US release is an online exclusive as part of a second "May Mayhem" event, following the official retail debut of Victorion this past weekend.
Tonight Amazon listed their own stock of the previously TakaraTomy-exclusive figure, showing a price of $16.99, and indicating a ship date of May 20th for the pre-sale figure. That has since been taken down, but there's a good chance that indicates the intended sale day! Stay tuned for more updates!
Twitter user @chromless is bringing us more photos from Transformers fest, going on this weekend on Japan. The first three Legends Series Titans Return figures, Hardhead, Skullcruncher, and Galvatron are on display, and we get some nice detail shots on them, including the Deluxes' new faces. Also seen is Unite Warriors Blast Off and a quick glance across the rest of the Combaticons and Bruticus, and a final stop with TAV 50 Hyper Surge Optimus Prime. Keep reading to check out all the mirrored shots!
Thanks to Amazon we have another round of stock photography updates. This batch brings us three Legends class figures: From wave 2 we have Ravage, mold-mate of wave 1's Stripes, featuring a new character-specific head, and Rumble, remolded from wave 1's Rewind. This batch also helps us finish out the wave 1 photos by giving us a look at Wheelie's final product stock photos. All are currently unavailable, and we still don't know quite when Titans Return will hit in force, other than "summer" sometime. We have all the high res images mirrored below, so keep reading!
The Allspark has chosen to further distribute confidential Hasbro design materials by obtaining the color guide sheet and uncolored package art linework for Titans return Deluxe Hot Rod from a source they refuse to identify. Expected in the 2017 product assortments, Hot Rod shows a mix of different design inspirations, from movie, to Animated
, and maybe a little IDW. Also notable are that the legs and lower torso even seem to resemble Cyclonus somewhat, creating some question where a retool of this design might go. We have the images mirrored, so keep reading to see!
