Our forums member koolkollectibleskhai has shared another review video with us, this time showing off Unite Warriors Menasor, released just recently in Japan and southeast Asia. In the video we get to take a good look at each figure, and get some details on what's changed between this set and the Hasbro releases, besides the alternation to Motormaster's hip ratchets that we've been hearing about over the last week or two. We've got the video embedded, so click through and have a look!



Activision has posted a video to their YouTube channel featuring a short talk with a slightly hoarse Peter Cullen. Recorded just after a recording session for Transformers: Devastation, Cullen talks about the origins of Optimus Prime's voice, and how nostalgic it is for him - and us! - to see the G1 version of the character in action again. Keep reading to watch the video!



It's that time of year! Amazon has posted a wealth of new official photos for new and upcoming products. Leading off are the Robots In Disguise Titan Changers figures, the new transforming entries into the large-but-affordable line of figures. Next up are Legion Alpine Sideswipe, who is totally not Red Alert, and 3-step Night Ops Bumblebee. Lastly, we have some official photos for Combiner Wars Generations Leader Starscream in both modes. Read on to see, and for links to the Amazon pages!



Gamestop's listing for Transformers Devastation have confirmed the preorder bonuses for the game! Those who preorder will receive skins for Optimus Prime, Sideswipe, and Bumblebee to make them into Nemesis Prime, Red Alert, and Goldfire, AKA Goldbug! While it's doubtful the character skins will have any effect on the voices or personalities of the characters, each skin also comes with a new weapon to affect gameplay. Keep reading for more details!



JETFIRE and KUP lead a team to investigate the mysterious ONYX system. Meanwhile, GALVATRON... well, GALVATRON just doesn't like anybody.



Some mysteries should remain unsolved. Some questions are best left unanswered. And even then some answers are not what they seem to be. The crew of the Lost Light is confronted with all of these lessons when they come face to face with a legend. "The Not Knowing", written by James Roberts, art by Hayato Sakamoto, coordinated by Phase6, and colored by Joana Lafuente. Read the full review!



The TCC has tweeted a new closeup image of the headsculpt for Subscription Service 4.0 combiner Thunder Mayhem today! Based on G1 Thunderwing as seen in his iconic "We Are THUNDERWING!" panel in the Marvel comic, the image shown is said to be the actual sculpt. We'll see how that sculpt translates to final product, but fingers crossed as it's really quite nice! Keep reading to see the image.



We recently reported on some good news regarding Unite Warriors Menasor, where the side-to-side hip ratchets on Motormaster had been modified to give the toy its correctly intended stance and movement range. The news gets better, because via multiple reports we've determined this same change has made it to the production of Battle Core Optimus. Thanks to payres on TFW, we have a couple photos demonstrating the new and improved leg positioning. We've got them mirrored, so keep reading to have a look!



Newsarama has brought us another early look at the preview for next week's Transformers comic. More Than Meets The Eye issue 44 will be hitting shops next Wednesday, after a slight delay - this was to be the August issue, remember. But better slightly late than not at all. Meanwhile, just as with the iTunes preview we'll warn that this preview contains perhaps more spoilers than usual, so keep that in mind before proceeding! Click through to read the preview pages and be back here early next week for the review.



If you've recently ordered any Combiner Wars merchandise from site sponsor Robotkingdom, you may have a small delay in your preorder being shipped. The good news is, the delay is to include the new sticker sheet for Defensor and Optimus Maximus! The promotional images only show a few of the stickers applied, but some added detail on your Protectobots and 1984 Team couldn't hurt anything, right? Read on for some images and more details!

If you've recently ordered any Combiner Wars merchandise from site sponsor Robotkingdom, you may have a small delay in your preorder being shipped. The good news is, the delay is to include the new sticker sheet for Defensor and Optimus Maximus! The promotional images only show a few of the stickers applied, but some added detail on your Protectobots and 1984 Team couldn't hurt anything, right? Read on for some images and more details!


Autobase Aichi reports that, like Superion and Menasor, there is now a sticker sheet for Combiner Wars Devastator that has appeared in Taiwan! Unlike those sticker sheets, which were available with any sufficiently large purchase, these are only being offered with the purchase of Devastator himself. Hopefully these will find their way to other online retailers as happened with the first set of stickers. Keep reading to see the sheet, the instructions, and some before and after images!


Hisashi Yuki has posted a silhouette very familiar to US Combiner Wars fans on Twitter! While Twitter's own Bing translation is something incomprehensible about a "Time Warrior," Google Translate gives a more teasing tone, translating roughly to "I wonder when I should reveal the next Unite Warrior? Maybe next month?" Should be interesting to see TakaraTomy's take on Optimus Maximus, but until then all we've got is this silhouette. Click through to see it!


So by now you may have handled either Combiner Wars Optimus Prime or Motormaster, and noticed that the hip ratchets are kind of finicky. They leave the legs either bolt-upright or in a very broad stance - an issue that transfers over to Ultra Prime or Menasor's hip articulation. Interestingly, reports are coming in from early Japanese purchaser of TakaraTomy's Unite Warriors Menasor that this Motormaster does not have these problems. More information as it becomes available, but for now read on for photographic proof!


Be honest with yourselves: haven't you wanted to get to know Alpha Bravo a bit better? TFW2005 has reported on a set of photos that have surfaced of the rare Combiner Wars Wave 1 pack-in comics! To ensure that Wave 1 hit promptly last December, Hasbro shipped the international packaging versions to online retailers, so the comics were largely never seen with figures. But they've turned up at a Taiwan comic con, so we can now read the long-form bios prepared for the Aerialbots(and Dragstrip). Keep reading to see them!


The Reprolabels core team have posted their latest update on their Facebook page. Get a look at their new upgrade sticker sheets that add more details and highlights to your already awesome Transformers toys. This update features lots of updates for Transformers Combiner Wars figures with what is sure to be a popular set for the Combiner Wars Devastator combiner team that will take things up a notch for those with the mass market release. Also, we have new sets for Protectobots, Ultra Magnus, and More figures you can see below.


UW02 Menasor is due out any day now, and Hasbro Asia will be exporting it to non-Japanese Asian territories as often happens. Those who acquire Menasor through their distribution will also receive this collector's coin, shown to us courtesy of Autobase Aichi, packaged in a replica of the figure's chest. Keep reading to see the images!


Ever since Hasbro revealed their Combiner Wars version of Combaticon Blast-Off to be a jet instead of a spacecraft, there's been rampant speculation that TakaraTomy would likely elect to make their own version of the character. Today, Hisashi Yuki has posted a sketch of G1 Blast-Off to Twitter with a message that seems to suggest he's pondering how to best mix the G1 cartoon and toy design elements. Keep reading to see!


Unite Warriors UW02 Menasor comes out later this month, and Hisashi Yuki of TakaraTomy and Twitter fame has a new photo for us! Showing the Aerialbots (as seen in UW01 Superion, previously released) and Stunticons facing off, Yuki notes in the tweet that Superion is rarely seen on shelves now after its release a few months ago. Combiner Wars seems to be doing well in both the US and Japan. Read on to see the photo!


Giovanni Sanchez of the Transformers Colombia Facebook has posted an image of Battle Core Optimus Prime combined with Air Raid, Quickslinger, Rook, and Alpha Bravo and white third-party hands and feet for a extremely white version of Optimus Maximus! But also noteworthy is the look at the torso, which sadly refutes the rumor that the inner torso has been remolded in any significant way. Keep reading to see for yourself!
