e-Hobby has posted a preorder page for their new followup exclusive to Convobat, Magna Convoy
! Magna Convoy is a recolor of 2006's oft-reused Classics Voyager Optimus Prime mold in a blue and black color scheme that resembles the cab of Diaclone Powered Convoy, AKA the original toy release of Ultra Magnus in the color scheme now given over to the Delta Magnus character. He also includes a "Matrix Sword" from the Titans Return Voyager Alpha Trion mold as well as a shield from Deluxe Mindwipe. Keep reading for his mechanically-translated bio!
Rounding out the wave for us today is Sawback. This is an adaptation of Lione, a toy-only character from The Headmasters
line in Japan which was a lion robot that turned in to a spare Headmaster. Titan Master Sawback is a humanoid little robot, but comes with a lion vehicle with a surprisingly effective shield mode, and charmingly goofy vehicle form. Between that and the effectiveness of the Titan Master integration in the animal mode, Sawback feels like the strongest whole package of the wave. We have over 100 photos of it, so keep reading to see our full gallery below!
Our third participant in today's mini-marathon of Titans Return galleries is Titan Master Fangry. This emulates the wolf-bat monster form of the original toy, and adds a dragon for good measure! There's a gun mode as well, but there's really nothing good about that. You can see all of this, plus of course the Titan Master in use as an auxiliary head in our gallery of nearly 100 photos! Keep reading to see that below, and of course keep watching for the conclusion of the Titan Master wave 3 galleries - we've saved the best for last!
Wave 3 of the Titan Masters features one unmodified redeco of an earlier toy. Overboard is a straight recolor of Crashbash from the first wave, so there's not anything new to be seen here aside from the colors. It should be noted that this use of the mold has a somewhat gummy feeling around the joints and hinges. Whether that be mold fatigue or a quirk of the plastic in this color is unclear. Between that and the lack of new parts, you may consider skipping this figure. To help you with that decision, click through and have a look through our gallery of 85 photos of Titan Master Overboard!
Like Clobber before it, we have in wave 3 a Dinobot by any other name. The Swoop-inspired Ptero focuses almost its entire energy on doing the pterosaur thing, much to the detriment of the vehicle and weapon modes. In this gallery of more than 80 photos, you can see for yourself how little the vehicle component actually transforms. But if you need a Swoop-looking robot head to attach to some body, Ptero does a fairly good job on that front! Click through now to see the full gallery below.
Once again thanks to translations by Sanchimaru and image editing (and some localization) by Jalaguy, we have the conclusion to Hayato Sakamoto's Unite Warriors web comic story. While this jam packed nine pages does conclude the story that's been ongoing for a portion of the Unite Warriors line, it needn't necessarily mean the line itself is coming to its end. Especially when there are still alternate toolings of Combiner Wars molds TakaraTomy hasn't touched yet! In any case, you can see the concluding chapter mirrored below, and click here
for the translated version of the previous chapter!
This would appear to be it: the second half of Unite Warriors Ruination's tie-in comic by artist Hayato Sakamoto (More Than Meets The Eye
#s 39, 44, 48-9) shows the battle between Ruination and Scourge Grand Prime to prevent Unicron from absconding with the entire planet Cybertron as his new body! While a translation is not yet available, this installment also comes to a definitive end - is Baldigus the last Unite Warriors release? Keep reading to see the pages!
If you're looking for more bargains on slightly out of date Transformers toys you may have passed on previously, it looks like a new batch of products are filtering out to closeout stores in the US. Today we spotted at Ross a quantity of Combiner Wars Leader Class Skywarp for $19.99, as well as RID Mini-Con Deployer Drift and Fracture at $8.99 a piece. Alongside the recent supply of Combiner Wars Voyagers and box sets, and it looks like the holiday shopping season may have a nice range of Transformers to choose from at lower prices! Click through for the photographic proof!
Via Robot Kingdom on Facebook we've got packaging images for Platinum Edition Unicron. This release of the Supreme Class Unicron toy again features the remolded parts to improve resemblance to Unicron's appearance in the G1 cartoon, and looks to remain very similar to the deco seen on the Amazon Exclusive US release several years ago. You can see package front and back, plus with the front flap opened to reveal the figure within. All the photos are mirrored below, so click through and have a look!
Last night on Twitter, e-Hobby released a simple image with a message that translates to "No. 2 series project underway! Please look forward to it!" So pretty clearly this refers to a followup to Convobat, the impending Generations Titans Return-derived take on Beast Wars Bat Optimus Primal. What will it be? Keep reading to see the image!
Today's Titans Return gallery is Triggerhappy, who has finally received a Generations updating for the first time ever! Triggerhappy's original toy had a great looking heavily armed fighter craft design, and this toy only enhances that. Streamlined to look faster and more advanced while losing nothing of the original's flavor. Add a fun, inventive transformation to a strong robot mode, and you can see how Triggerhappy is a surprise highlight in this line. We have almost 140 photos of Triggerhappy in our gallery, and you can see it all after the break.
Today we're bringing you a gallery of 150 photos
of Hot Rod from Titans Return Deluxe wave 3! Thanks at least in part to a certain upcoming movie, the original name of Hot Rod has made a return, seemingly calling to a close the days of non-Prime Rodimus releases. Hot Rod is a much needed upgrade from 2006's Classics Rodimus: Bigger, with greater poseability, and a vehicle form more like the fantasy future car from the animated movie. It does have some minor issues, though - look for more on that in the review coming soon. Meanwhile, keep reading to see our photo gallery of Titans return Hot Rod!
It's time for new toys again! This weekend we are pleased to bring you a brand new gallery of over 100 photos of Titans Return Deluxe Twinferno - otherwise known as the Monsterbot Doublecross. Twinferno comes with Titan Master Daburu (derived from the Japanese phonetic spelling of the English word 'double') who is based on Beastformer White Leo - Pirate Lion to Battle Beast fans, with whom Doublecross featured in an episode of The Headmasters
. Keep reading to see the full gallery, and of course watch for the upcoming review, as well as more galleries from Titans Return wave 3!
Toy photographer Blacklai has posted a (Chinese-language) review of Titans Return Sixshot... but as always, he's done so with the help of an extensive gallery of photos! In the 80+ photos we've mirrored here, Blacklai shows off the various configurations the Ninja Consultant for the Decepticons can assume, including a curious fan mode that involves holding Submarine Mode upside-down. Keep reading to see the images and then check out Blacklai's blog!
The TakaraTomy TF_pr Twitter account has shared another photo of UW-EX Baldigus, who we knew in Robots in Disguise as Ruination. The post tonight is meant to remind everyone that the preorder period on TakaraTomy Mall will be ending in a little over a week, on November 29th. Though for most of us who are outside of Japan, that information is academic, this does afford a chance to see a new shot of Baldigus, showcasing the beautiful gold paint and deco on the chest. Unite Warriors Baldigus is due to ship in March 2017. Keep reading to see the full size image.
