Brought to you by the same auctioneer who is selling Generations Chromia, we now have images of Transformers Cloud Shockwave, and the TakaraTomy Legends release of the Voyager-class Whirl he's based on. (Both slightly mistransformed.) Shockwhirl is looking pretty nice, all told, and if those are tampographs and not stickers on Legends Whirl, that's certainly a tick in its favor. Keep reading to see photos!



Mastermind Creations has shared images of the upcoming rerelease of their Sixshot homage, Terminus Hexatron Continuum. The figure features numerous upgrades from the original 2013 release including chrome guns and a metallic paint finish that is said to cover 70% of the body, and it is being touted as the "last chance" to get this mold. It's impressive looking, to be sure! Keep reading to see the photos!



It's that time again: an eBay seller is auctioning off the as-yet-unreleased Generations Chromia, and has posted an extensive set of photographs, which we're mirroring here. Chromia is an extensively retooled and pretty extensively painted version of Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise Arcee, the second more general release of the character. Keep reading to see the images!



Amazon Japan has added some new images to their page for MP-22 Wheeljack, including the card that the figure will come with, what appears to be a functional missile launcher, and a shot of the box.

DECEPTICONS ASSEMBLE! The war for CYBERTRON begins in earnest! MEGATRON brings together the deadliest of his troops for an unbelievable assault on the AUTOBOTS—and the TRANSFORMERS’ world is shaken to the core! Written by Chris Metzen and Flint Dille, with art by Livio Ramondelli and covers by Ramondelli and Sarah Stone!



Singapore's Planet Iacon has stitched together a couple of images from TAGHobby of the Masterpiece display at the Christmas Toy Trade Fair of 2014. The composite image gives us a pretty good sense of the relative scale of upcoming Masterpieces Ultra Magnus and Star Saber. There's also an MP Wheeljack on Magnus' car carrier mode which - most Autobot Car MPs being somewhere between Deluxe and Voyager sizes - gives us a slightly better chance at guessing their scale relative to anything else. Keep reading to see the photo!

It's hip to be square, as long as you're square and squat. The Loyal Subjects have posted an image to Instagram showing G1 Vinyls Wave 3's Trailbreaker, who looks like nothing so much as a cute little pile of boxes. Keep reading to see the photo and the post that went with it!


SD Figures are coming to recreate the famous Double Convoy episode of Transformers Headmasters. TAGHobby reports that Artstorm's ES Gokin line (Which we presume to be smaller than their EX Gokin line) will be releasing figures of Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime in February and April of 2015, respectively, for the price of 4800 Yen (about $50 US) apiece. Each figure is roughly 4" tall, made of diecast plus PVC and ABS plastics, features multiple points of articulation and accessories. Keep reading to see the photos!


Robot Kingdom has posted more images to their Facebook page, among which are better images of the die for G1 Optimus Prime that give a better idea of what exactly is on this sprue. The blue and vac-metal parts are gang-molded - no surprise to anyone who's ever scraped the chrome on their figure - and it seems as though there may be removable stops to allow the shortening of smokestacks for US rereleases. Keep reading to see the details!
