Hasbro Asia has posted an image showing off the design for the collector coin in package that will come with tomorrow's release of Masterpiece Bluestreak! For us that's Blue
Bluestreak, but since the silver version of Bluestreak was simply named "Streak" in Japan, this release is titled "Bluestreak" on the package to differentiate it from regular Streak. Keep reading to see a less confusing image!
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!
FansProject has posted a bunch of photos of upcoming figures this morning, including LER-04 Severo (AKA Grimlock) and its DX version which comes with a crown and throne! Also on display are Ryu-Oh (Dinoking) and the Tricerabot shell for its core figure Dinoichi(Kakuryu)! Read on to see it all!
It's Japanese Hobby Magazine Time again! Ehobbybaseshop has posted a scan from Figure-Oh
magazine, AKA Figure King, showing off Masterpiece Ironhide's transformation, accessories, and Battle Platform-shaped accessory stand. Also on display are Legends Ultra Magnus, MP Bumblebee Red, and MP Thundercracker! Read on to see the scan!
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!
Hisashi Yuki is still busy with photos of October's Legends releases! While the focus remains on LG16 Slipstream, with cameos by LG17 Blackarachnia and LG12 Windblade so far, Arcee remold LG15 Nightbird Shadow can be seen in the background of the latest shot. Is her turn in the Twitter spotlight coming up? Who knows, but keep reading to see today's photo from @TFYUKI!
So is a third party upgrade for a third party toy fourth party, or sixth? Maybe the effect is multiplicative and it's ninth party? Either way, NoNameClub on Weibo has announced CombToys' W01 Bastard, a replacement sword for Feral Rex! If your Mastermind Creations version of Predaking is in need of a long bladed one-handed sword, Bastard would more or less be the correct terminology for that. Click through to see photos!
GigaPower Toys' first foray into third-party Dinobots, Guttur, was fairly well received. Now they're moving on to everyone's favorite name-changing triceratops with the addition of Grassor! The character known as Slag, Slug, and occasionally Snarl is looking good, and pretty massive
next to MP-10 Optimus Prime. Read on to see photos!
So you've got DX9's Carry, the Masterpiece-esque Rodimus Prime figure. Naturally you now need a Galvatron for him to fight! DX9 has thought of this for you, and has posted a picture of their new figure Tyrant to Weibo. Tyrant is a highly-articulated take on Galvatron, sporting both his arm cannon and an Autobot Matrix of Leadership on a chain that he can use to attempt to intimidate Unicron, and fail miserably.

Maketoys has been busy! Their site has updated with a great many photos of the color test shots for Gun Dog (Hound), Hellfire (Inferno), Wrestle (Grapple), and Vulcan (Hot Spot), the core robot for the combiner Guardia (Defensor!) Read on for fifty-plus pictures!
Maketoys has posted images to their website showing grayscale prototypes of Himed and Katana, the First Aid and Blades equivalents for their version of Defensor, Guardia! It appears that Katana is carrying at least one of the swords that he is named for, an accessory that is formed from the helicopter's rotors. Keep reading to see photos of both modes for each figure!
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!
Twitter user @sig_yan has posted images of the just-released Kabaya Seacons, which he seems to have chosen to troop-build! The Transformers Gum line is a line of small, slightly simplified figure model kits that mostly focuses on G1 figures. And Piranacon is looking pretty nice - click through to see!
Mecha Form's Facebook page has posted images of their new Sky Guardian figure, along with a statement saying they've reached out to online retailers to begin the preorder process. Sky Guardian is the second take on G1 Skyfire's animation model (third if you count Generations Leader Class Jetfire), and looks like a reasonably accurate representation of that. Read on for the photos!
