An official Combiner Wars Liokaiser came out as the last of the boxsets for that line last year, but it had a bit of reimagining and was only five members instead of six. And with no Unite Warriors version, a more accurate interpretation seemed unlikely. So one fan by the Twitter handle of @omochasoku02 decided to fill in that gap, and customized a full set, with Breastmaster partners, plus both Leozack and Jallguar who form the torso together, and even Deathcobra, the animation-only single-appearance extra member of the team. This is definitely worth a look, so check out the photos in the gallery below!





We'll be coming back to the SDCC exclusives shortly. But before that, I wanted to share the unboxing of Siege on Cybertron, the second Titans Return box set that we've all been eagerly anticipating. It just came in this week at BigBadToyStore, which when combined with the SDCC exclusives dropping made this a potentially very expensive week! Check out the unboxing video embedded below.



THE RETURN OF GALVATRON THE BARBARIAN! Optimus Prime meets with Alpha Trion, the ancient sage, who reveals a tale of Cybertron's earliest days, when the original Thirteen Primes united the world. But even then, the warrior known as Galvatron was a wild card... shaping the future in unexpected ways.



Entertainment Earth has listed a preorder for Kidrobot's upcoming series of Transformers vs. GI Joe Mini-Figures! Priced at $240 for a box of 24, these blind-boxed figures are, to our knowledge, the first figures explicitly designed after artist Tom Scioli's take on the Transformers and GI Joe universes. Keep reading to see the preliminary designs and a list of figures!



So, SDCC exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime came and went really quickly on HasbroToyShop yesterday, and we at TFormers hope that most everyone who wanted one was able to get it. But with Titans Return Siege on Cybertron shipping the same day with Magnus Prime, we got to thinking about the amazing variety of uses and retoolings that mold family has seen over the two short years it's existed. So keep reading for a handy infographic laying out the history of the Ultra Magnus mold family!



We're getting reports in from those who were lucky enough to get a preorder in on the Titans Return Siege on Cybertron boxset that site sponsor BigBadToyStore is now processing those preorders! It shouldn't be long now until people have Magnus Prime, Tidal Wave, Metalhawk, Pounce, and Thunderwing in hand! Keep reading for a rundown of the set's contents!



Ozformers has shared some good news on Facebook, particularly for their fellow Australian collectors: The final assortments of Titans Return Deluxes are being spotted - including Slugslinger, the final general retail Deluxe of the line. Sluslinger was found at a Myer store by Justowen. Further, thanks to Joel Delahunty, we have a report on the full case breakdown for Wave 6, which had been a complete mystery up to now. Keep reading for the details!





Entertainment Earth is holding a one-day sale on their Combiner Wars Platinum Edition exclusive, Liokaiser! The last of the US Combiner boxsets Liokaiser makes use of the Sky Lynx, Sky Dive, Air Raid, and Brawl molds with a fair bit of remolding, especially to Sky Lynx! The set is only $78 today at EE. Keep reading for a link!



To be specific, the "More" includes Christos Gage, writer of the ROM and Micronauts First Strike tie-ins, and Aubrey Sitterson, writer of the GI Joe and Mask tie-ins. Barber will be writing both the Transformers-related tie-in books. And of course the writers of the main event Mairghread Scott and Alex Rodriguez are on-hand too along with artist Max Dunbar! Keep reading for a link to go ask your questions!



The crossover of the year continues! Scarlett learns the truth behind Baron Ironblood's plan to destroy all life on Cybertron, but with her team stranded on Earth, she must turn to an unlikely ally to help her reach the besieged planet. Enter: Soundwave! Expected in shops on August 23, 2017.

While Siege on Cybertron, the second and final Titans Return boxset is an exclusive of site sponsor BigBadToyStore for US distribution, ToysRUs will be handling the boxset within Canada. As evidenced by Twitter user Ryan Sheehey picking one up in Ontario last night! Keep reading for photographic proof.


We continue our photographic coverage of the new figures from Titans Return Deluxe Wave 5 with the most newest of the three: Windblade. Sharing only a small selection of mostly structural parts with Highbrow and Scourge, the vast majority of Windblade is brand new - even the Titan Master, Scorchfire has a number of new pieces! We hope to bring you a full review of Windblade soon, but in the meantime we have a gallery of over 170 photos to show it off, and hopefully show not all the proportion oddities are really as bad as they may have been represented in previous coverage. The gallery is right below, click through now to get started! You can pre-order this figure now at BigBadToyStore.com.


Bluefin Drift Transformers figure is set for release in January 2018, this extraordinary rendering is officially licensed and depicts the Autobot Drift as he is seen in the beloved IDW Transformers comic book series. The Drift figure represents a pinnacle of collectibles design and stands 8 inches tall and is constructed with high quality die-cast parts with more than 50 jointed linkage articulation features to allow for maximum realistic poseability. The (non-transforming) Drift figure also features 3 interchangeable facial expressions and contains 6 LED units that provide light-up displays on its body.


Deluxe wave 5 is hitting retail in the US, largely through Target stores at the moment, and that's given us the opportunity to start bringing coverage of one of the final parts if this wave to see US distribution. We're starting up with Misfire - this sample on loan to us from HeyMickey - who already had a video review go live earlier today. In our gallery of 153 photos, you can see side by sides with Triggerhappy with whom Misfire shares parts, plus full detail on the robot and vehicle modes and the Titan Master Aimless. Click through to check it all out right now!


Just in is the official information on HASCON exclusive merchandise for Transformers – including the Transformers Optimus Prime Converting Power Bank and Transformers Generations Titans Return Arcee Special Edition Set. The converting power bank is a Hascon convention exclusive and the Titans Return Arcee Special Edition Set will be available for purchase for the first time at HASCon before a wider release. Read on for the full descriptions and pricing.


UPDATED with more info! Gizmodo has been given the first look at the HasCon exclusives, and we now know where Titans Return Arcee is going to be available! She's a HasCon exclusive priced at $30. And, as we predicted, she comes with the diecast metal Ultra Magnus Titan Master as well! Also available at the con is the Power Bank Optimus Prime, and the article confirms that he is essentially a Laser Rod: he has a light-up LED sword that plugs into his functional power bank! Keep reading for photos and more information on availability.


The ACG convention is happening in Hong Kong, and Flame Toys is among the exhibitors showing off their wares. Besides the Drift figure, whose preorders finally began this week, they're showing two more officially licensed pieces of Transformers merchandise. One is the figure that will follow Drift, Decepticon Justice Division commander Tarn, marking the first official figure of the character. Also shown was the first entry in a new model kit line, launching with a highly stylized Optimus Prime. You can find the photos direct from Flame Toys' Twitter, mirrored below!


Perhaps the most detailed and articulated Transformers figure ever made, Drift features LED lights, cape with mounted wires for windswept action poses, alternate faces, and plenty of diecast, this is the centerpiece in any Transformers Collectors collection. Extremely limited numbers will be released worldwide on this piece.
