More Generation 1
A Hasbro (and apparently Takara) product meeting took place, and a member of the ACToys community was on hand to take notes. Subsequently, other fans have translated this quick report in to English, and we've got the highlights on upcoming G1 reissues, Generations Devastator and Defensor, and the next Masterpiece figure!

Rounding out the Wave 1 combiners is Ultra Prime! In terms of proportions and articulation, Ultra Prime suffers a bit in comparison to Superion, but is still a stable, articulated combiner of massive proportions. The mold won't see its full potential until it becomes Menasor in the coming months, but it's not bad. Continue to full review
Now that we've looked at all the Deluxes, there's only one thing left to do: break out the Voyagers and combine everything! Superion is specactular. A big, solid figure with good articulation and a massive gun. Which would be cause for a high rating if he weren't
full of tinier men. Continue to full review
Autobase Aichi is reporting three listings on the Chinese site Taobao for new Masterpiece Autobot Cars: MP-25 Tracks, MP-26 Tracks Repaint, AKA Road Rage, and MP-27 Ironhide. Placeholder images are available, but little else at the moment. Keep reading to see those, and as soon as there's new information, you'll see it here!
They sure make some weird looking jets nowadays. RAC concludes the Combiner Wars Wave 1 Deluxe reviews with an even odder man out than Alpha Bravo: the displaced Stunticon Dragstrip! If this is an indicator of the quality of the remaining Stunticons, we're in for a treat. Continue to full review
Facebook page The Falcon's Hangar has posted new images of Function-XV M.A.D.L.A.W.! Better known as Quickswitch, Madlaw is a six-changer just like his G1 inspiration, and is looking pretty decent in all modes. Keep reading to see the photos!
While we'd previously heard a cutoff date of January 1st for G1 and other Hasbro shows, The Wrap reports that Hasbro and Netflix have been unable to come to terms - a situation more or less confirmed by a Tweet from @HasbroNews. So if you really want to catch up on Transformers Prime, Pound Puppies, or My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you'd best get to watching now. Keep reading for more details!
TAKARA MASTERPIECE RESTOCKS - If you missed out on the initial preorders, we have now restocked several Masterpiece listings including MP-09B Black Rodimus for $209.99, MP-11 Coronation Starscream Reissue with Collector Coin for $199.99, MP-13 Soundwave with Laserbeak 2nd Product Run for $169.99, MP-13 Soundwave Collector Coins for $6.99, and MP-14 Masterpiece Red Alert 2nd Product Run with Collector Coin for $79.99.
Previously known as Fireflight, Firefly's the only Aerialbot RAC owned as a kid, because it was the one with actual color. How does he stack up to Skydive, and how does he limb? And what is that gun of his? (SPOILER:
It is totally a flamethrower.) Continue to full review
Japanese site Hobby Collection has posted a list of upcoming releases from TakaraTomy from the end of April through June of 2015. The Transformers Adventure heading continues to play host to both RID 2015 and a mix of other items including Generations figures not falling under the Legends Series in Japan. There are no pictures so far, but some interesting things in the text. Keep reading!
Blacklai who we know well for bringing us out first in hand looks at Combiner Wars wave 1 has given us a new gallery featuring Year of The Goat Optimus Prime. The ...unique... clear and gold redeco of Laser Optimus Prime also finds itself with pink parts in various places, as well as working lights. The downside is the lack of factory stickers means the screws on the chest and shoulder parts are fully visible, a distinct downgrade from the original and 2002 Robots in Disguise releases. Keep reading to check out the photos!
FUNCTION X-05 M.A.D.L.A.W. - Featuring 6 totally different modes of play: Master V, the vibrant warrior; Air Strike, master of metal; Dirt Driller, master or earth; Laser Shot, Master of fire; Aqua Force, master of water; Wood Runner, master of wood. This item is priced at $102.99.
Shajaki of the Seibertron Forums has posted a guide to distinguishing the knockoff MP-10 Bape Convoy from the real deal. An exclusive to the Japanese fashion store A Bathing Ape, Bape Convoy is a green Optimus Prime- and if you have the real one, he will not
have an Autobot symbol on his shoulder, and there will be a batch number stamped into the bottom of the box. Keep reading for more details and a link to the full guide!
A member of the 2005 forums has posted a rumor about the eagerly anticipated Combiner Wars Devastator, one which dovetails neatly with the idea of it being a Titan Class figure. The rumor suggests that the body will be a Leader and the limbs will be Voyagers, which would indeed suggest a massive figure that requires a Metroplex-sized box. The rumor also suggests we'll see a yellow G2 version at SDCC this year. Keep reading to see all the rumored details!
IDW Transformers writer and editor John Barber has confirmed that bad conditions on Mississippi highways have caused delays in the shipping schedule. Currently, it appears that we'll be getting four
