Rumors had been afoot of a special reissue of MP Megatron for the non-Japanese Asian markets, and thanks to Autobase Aichi we now have a photo and a release date of December! MP-05G Megatron is based on that obscure comic... that G1 episode when... that limited-release early version of... okay, it's just gold.
I guess only good guys get black recolors. Keep reading to see the photo!
The Year of the Goat is nearly here, and courtesy of Robotkingdom we know that Hasbro as always is readying a pair of commemorative Platinum Edition figures for Asian markets and US ToysRus stores. This year it's Masterpiece Soundwave and the Laser Optimus Prime mold from late G2. Huh? Both figures are rendered in what appears to be the official YotG color scheme, which is clear plastic and copper. ...Huh. But MP Soundwave even comes with a similarly-decoed set of cassettes!

New pictures of Ultimetal Optimus Prime have surfaced on Twitter, and they give a much better sense of just how much robot $800 gets you. Coming up to Metroplex's torso-boxes and standing head and shoulders above even the original, larger MP-1 Optimus Prime, you have to figure that the price of the figure isn't too bad if you figure it by the pound...

Singapore's Planet Iacon has posted a gallery of in-hand images of the super-big, super-elaborate, super-expensive Ultimetal Optimus Prime! The figure comes with a near-complete set of magnetic snap-on armor, a fancy base with stand, a Matrix of Leadership that also fits on the stand, and eyes that light up and a faceplate that moves when it talks. And it's huge.
As is the price- about $760 USD. Keep reading to see the photos, which is as close as most of us are ever going to get to owning one of these!
BigBadToyStore has just posted preorders with images for TakaraTomy's Transformers Legends versions of Generations Arcee, Chromia, and Windblade! Arcee's a significant improvement and more accurate to the G1 cartoon color scheme. Chromia is... more accurate to the G1 cartoon color scheme. But also very much worth mentioning is Windblade, who is a signficantly better match for the color scheme used for the character in the comic. It's possible the face paint is superior as well, but better photos will be needed to say for sure. In the meantime, keep reading to get preorder links to BBTS and see the photos!
TakaraTomy has updated their product pages for the Legends Swerve and Tailgate 2-pack and Voyager Brainstorm! Brainstorm's page has the first good shot of the Japanese release of Arcana, and Tailgate and Swerve are shown in significantly darker, more toy-derived color schemes than their US counterparts. Keep reading to see the photos!
Member Tober of the Australian Transformers forums, OTCA, has posted images and a brief review of Generations Deluxe Arcee! She's looking pretty good, with a decent set of accessories and a really well-executed headsculpt of the G1 design. Keep reading for the photos and details!
TFSource has shared photos of the upcoming Keith's Fantasy Club Overslay and Haymaker! The Masterpieceish versions of Overkill and Slugfest are shown interacting with MP Soundwave, and with their final packaging, and otherwise looking pretty nifty. Keep reading to see the photos!
The Facebook page for ASH's Universe has posted a new photo gallery for Unique Toys' upcoming Troll, the Blot equivalent for a projected team of Terrorcons who will form Ordin, who of course greatly resembles Abominus. Troll's looking pretty great, and comes with a versatile set of accessories that will of course form other parts for Ordin. Still can't look at the missile pod foot without seeing an old-fashioned telephone, but that's just me. Keep reading to see the photos!

A member of the Chinese-language ACToys forums has posted images of their freshly-acquired MP-20 Wheeljack, making this one of the first opportunities to see the final product in-hand. It's looking pretty good, as expected. Keep reading to see the photos!
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!
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. Wheeljack is just 10 days from release as of this writing, and is looking really good. Keep reading to see the photos!
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.
