News


The Winter Wonderfest 2016 is over, but it certainly didn't go without some good stuff to show. In the time since we reported last night, more photos have been posted from the event showing more detail on Masterpiece Optimus Primal, such as the furry appearance derived entirely through paint apps. We also have more detail shots of Blast Off and the Combaticons, including another look at their color promo poster, and new tonight we have showings from Prime 1 Studios with an array of movie-inspired statues, and another appearance of Heroes of Steel Optimus. Click through to see it all, along with a full list of photo credits!



Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted a pair of new photos to their preorder page for Unite Warriors Bruticus - the first color photos of TakaraTomy's version so far! The photos aren't particularly large or high-quality, but a few things are evident - such as Vortex not having bright yellow missiles on his forearms. Keep reading to have a look!



Jay over at TNI has posted a new video review and images for the Transformers Masterpiece MP-27 Ironhide figure that is shipping out to fans now. Get the scoop on this suped-up version of the Generation 1 character from Takara's awesome MasterPiece line. Read on to see the video and image gallery below.



Adam Pawlus of 16bit.com has posted a confirmation that the version of Onslaught in the Wave 2 Voyager case with Sky Lynx is unchanged from the Wave 1 version, and does not have the animation-accurate Bruticus parts that were anticipated to be on the second release. Whether we get the intended running change or not down the road is unknown - but don't go buying a second Onslaught just yet expecting the alternate colors. Keep reading for the confirmation tweet!



Hot on the heels, palms, face, and breastplate of PE's Computron upgrades come a set of upgrades for pretty much the rest of Combiner Wars! Improvements for Optimus Maximus, Bruticus, and G2 Superion will be available between April and May. On top of that, they've announced replacement parts to address an issue with their PC-06 kit for Combiner Wars Devastator that caused a loosening of the wrist joints. Keep reading for all of the details!



A Facebook page called "Genmon Photo Vault" has posted in-package images of the collector's coin for Masterpiece Ironhide! The package design looks like a, er, paper-thin copy of Ironhide's upper body, and opens to reveal a coin with Ironhide's face. No information on the coin is given, but past bonuses of this like - and the Hasbro logo on the back of the sleeve - suggest it will be for the Hasbro Asia release of the figure. Keep reading to see!



The All Things Geeky! blog has posted images of Combiner Wars G2 Menasor! Acquiring the set for an amazingly good price changed the writer's mind about getting it at all - but it still has all the flaws of the previous iteration of Menasor. Keep reading for the photos and a link to the blog!



TFW2005 user vproject has spotted Sky Reign at Phillipines Retail! To our knowledge, this marks the first time that the entire wave - Smokescreen, Trailbreaker, Wheeljack, and Autobot Hound along with Sky Lynx himself - have been sighted at retail. Onslaught, Sky Lynx's case mate, was also sighted, but was reported by vproject to still have the silver torso parts for Bruticus. Whether that's only the case with international releases of the wave remains to be seen. Keep reading to see photographic proof!



ToyWorld have shared an image on TFW2005 of their latest design for a third-party Ramjet figure! Currently only known as TW-07, the scale of the figure is not precisely known - but as 2005 points out, it has articulated fingers and the holes for the screws look pretty small. So it's probably wisest to anticipate a continuation of the Masterpiece-scale trend that has swept the third party world in the past year or so. Keep reading for a closer look at the image!



TFC Toys has posted some new shots of their SD Devastator, HerQules, to their Weibo page! HerQ is looking fairly nice, and lines up with Diabolus Rex, MasterMade's SD Trypticon, relatively well. We also get a look at the in-package figure in this round of photos. Keep reading to see!



Prime 1 Studio have dropped a teaser for their next Transformers G1 release. Those with a keen eye will notice classic G1 design is almost surely that of the Autobot Leader Optimus prime. This is reported to be another awesome design by Josh Nizzi that will be somewhat smaller than usual at about 23 inches, including the base. Read on to see the teaser image of the Prime 1 Studio Transformers G1 Optimus Prime

Games


A popular Transformers Video Game has been a long time coming, so long that many felt it was not possible. Even Kenji Saito, the director on the Transformers: Devastation game from Activision that was released Fall 2015. Depending on who you ask, the game has hits and misses as far as game play and design go. But few can deny, this has been the most fulfilling Transformers game experience so far. Part of that credit goes to Saito, who shares some of the challenges and how he approached Transformers: Devastation design in recent interview with Gamespot.


Following the reveal of the new Transformers: Earth Wars Beta mobile game trailer from Backflip Studios. We have offical details on the game along with some new images.

Read on for all these details and more than meets the mobile.


Videogamer.com has posted images and details on the Transformers: Devastation DLC coming next week! It appears to be the items which were previously available as preorder bonuses: new skins to make Nemesis Prime, Red Alert, and Goldbug as well as special weapons for each. It's unknown what the price will be, but the general rule of thumb on preorder bonus value is $10 or less, so we'll see. Keep reading to see the characters you can play with while you wait for Fallout 4 to finish downloading!
