Recently our forums member TMan978 posted a review of Transformers Cybertron Optimus Prime, a fantastic toy that stands the test of time and stays fun and interesting even now over ten years later. But Optimus isn't a one shot story, and so TMan is back to show us Wing Saber, the Ultra Class figure that combines with Optimus to form one of his enhanced super modes - which TMan has also posted a video about. If you want to check out these cool toys from a different time in Transformers, keep reading to see the videos embedded below!
Our coverage of Combiner Wars Victorion continues! Now that we've looked at the combined form, let's check out the figures that make it up. We're going to Stormclash and Skyburst next, the twin helicopters. With little difference between them besides deco placement, we're presenting both together in one gallery. You can see their new head sculpts, as well as the clever means by which they gave them mirrored torso detailing. If you can't figure it out, we'll detail it in the review coming soon! And finally, see a family reunion of all the helicopter characters so far - all that and more below!
Yesterday we showed you our first look at Victorion in our unboxing video
, and tonight we begin in-depth coverage of the set with detailed photography! First up we have a gallery of more than 50 photos of the main event, Victorion herself! With close looks at the new hands, feet, combined sword, and the new head sculpt, start here to get a good look at the Fan-Built Combiner!
UNITE WARRIORS UW-06 GRAND GALVATRON
- Transformers Unite Warriors UW-06 Grand Galvatron is a Decepticon combiner figure that stands nearly 12 inches tall in combined mode. This set includes Tactician Cyclonus, Ghost Starscream, Curse Armada Thrust, Zombie War Breakdown, and Wandering Roller. A collector coin is also included. $159.99
BadCube has announced the latest in their Old Timer Series - OTS-10 Slick! A remold of their OTS-09 Grump, AKA Masterpiece style Gears, Slick is of course designed to resemble G1 Mini-Car Swerve. Grump and Slick are the first two Mini-Cars in the OTS series since 02 and 03, Brawny and Backland, who were released simultaneously at a price of $80-90 each. No way to know yet if these two will be similar, but keep reading to see the image!
Silly Galvatron! Ghost Starscream is already dead! Hisashi Yuki's latest promotional photos of upcoming TakaraTomy products guest-star the just-released Unite Warriors UW06 Grand Galvatron! After Galvatron gives Starscream a nasty flashback, he next trades cannons with the full combiner - and that works pretty well, surprisingly! Keep reading to see.

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!
Toy World have released new images announcing their next project to come. The images reveal they are working on a new Not Optimus Prime MP Scale figure. The images shown in grey proto-type images offer a preview of what appears to a highly detailed rendering of the Autobot Leader's G1 style robot and truck modes. No word on release dates or pricing at this time. Check out the images of the figure in the gallery for the full previews.
We've been able to get hold of a Combiner Wars Victorion boxset just a bit early, so we're bringing you our first look at the set in this unboxing video. We'll take a good look at the packaging, along with the paperwork inserts such as the excellent miniposter, before moving on to a quick, preliminary overview of the six toys. But we've got a lot more Victorion planned for you in the very near future. Keep checking back as we bring you galleries, more videos and full reviews of this great box set! Click through to check out the unboxing, embedded below!
As the old saying goes, you can call Legends Skull anything, but don't call him late for dinner. And in today's photos from TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki, Skullcruncher's dinner looks very much like the Titan Master vehicle his Headmaster partner is riding. Run, Grax, run! Due at the end of July in Japan, Skullsmasher is priced at 4320 Yen. Keep reading to see the photos!
Was Generations Chop Shop just not doing it for you on his own? No, I don't mean the Skrapnel recolor, I mean the tiny little Targetmaster Beetle Scissors accessory figure. If you just have to have more Insecticons at that specific scale, Dr Wu has you covered! On Weibo, a render was shown presenting takes on Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel as the Micro Insect Army set. It is perhaps a nice move for people who want matching Insecticon sets, but wouldn't going for Chop Shop's actual team of the Deluxe Insecticons
have been more appropriate? Click through to take a look at the image!
The video series Super Power Beat Down
has pitted Optimus Prime (the movie version to be specific) against the most technologically advanced superhero on Earth: Iron Man! This unofficial video plays out a battle between the two titans, but leaves the end result up to the voting public. Who is the winner? You'll have to watch through to the end to find that out - keep reading to see the video!

Thanks to Autobase Aichi, we know ToysRUs Japan is continuing its Mini-Con giveaway campaign! If you spend 3,000 Yen at a Japanese TRU anytime soon you will get Rain, a translucent blue Arms Micron recolored from the Mini-Con partner included in the Japanese release of Transformers Prime Cliffjumper. Keep reading to see some photos!
It's Golden Week in Japan! Apparently Hisashi Yuki has taken some time off to play the Japanese rhythm game Prism Paradise
. Looks like he got one of the low-tier prizes in their promotional campaign - and Hardhead's not taking it well either. We also have an image of Hardhead in better times, using his Titan Master vehicle in its weapon mode. (Which looks like nothing so much as an upturned tank, which it is.) Keep reading to see!
From their Weibo page we have some new looks at the first two figures from TransformMission's Masterpiece-scaled unofficial Stunticons. These pictures show the Breakdown and Wildrider analogues in plastic and paint colors for the first time. The text in the post notes that some deco tweaks are planned - and likewise the molds themselves apparently need modifications, and so it seems the release of these figures will be delayed for a while in order to get these issues sorted out. You can see the mirrored pictures below in the full post!
