Thanks to sponsor, RobotKingdom, who have posted news and images of the Takara Transformers Unite Warriors UW-EX Lynxmaster Exclusive Collectors Coin release that begins shipping on October 29th.
The images shows the coin will be offered in a fancy chest-piece styled case. This is likely made of cardboard - not an accessory. Read on for the complete look at the Unite Warriors UW-EX Lynxmaster Exclusive Collectors Coin images below.
Some "fallen off the truck" editions of Titans Return Deluxe Wave 3 are starting to appear on Chinese auction site Taobao, and by way of one such seller we actually have some fairly nice photos of of this round of toys. Hot Rod, Twinferno (formerly Doublecross), Triggerhappy, and Breakaway (Getaway) make up this batch. From this new set of photos it looks pretty conclusive Twinferno has no internal compartment for a Titan Master in alt mode, instead leaving it relegated to the outboard seat of the combined weapon. Click through to see the whole batch!
With noon in Japan having just passed, TakaraTomy Mall has posted the listing page on schedule for the next Unite Warriors set. Baldigus - or Ruination as Robots in Disguise watchers will tend to identify him - is everything you expected: Recolors of the Unite Warriors Combaticons. But just to give that little extra wrinkle, a few new weapons have been tossed in, each figure getting at least one newly added weapon. There's a whole set of stock photos to see, so keep reading for that and more info!
The official TakaraTomy Transformers Twitter account, @TF_pr, would like to remind you that Unite Warriors Lynxmaster is due very soon! Lynxmaster is the TakaraTomy version of Sky Reign, the Sky Lynx-based combiner from Combiner Wars. Keep reading to see the image!
As Titans Return wave 3 slowly starts initial availability in Asia, we have a new round of photos showing off Hot Rod. In this quick batch we see it with Titans Return Galvatron, as well as rounding out a 1986 movie cast display, plus a couple newly seen details: The vehicle attack mode with the weapons attached, and a slight mistransformation of the torso that makes it look a tiny bit like the Masterpiece toy. Keep reading to see all the pictures and for photographer credit!
Autobase Aichi has retrieved a fresh batch of pictures from Weibo, where user wujingguang has posted in-hand shots of Hot Rod and Twinferno! Both are looking pretty nice. Hot Rod in particular looks like he will be the worthy update to Classics Rodimus we've been waiting on for ten years now. (Which was itself the Hot Rod update fans had been waiting for for twenty years.
We're all old, fellow collectors!) Keep reading to have a look at the figures!
So if you spend a lot of time staring at robot crotches - and we're not judging - you may have noticed that Titan Class Fortress Maximus is missing a certain... detail. If you really miss that red circle where the G1 toy housed the mechanism for its elevator, you'll be happy to know that DNA Design has got you covered. But that's not all the DK-04 kit contains, as you also get some new hip ratchets and a set of slippers that seem to add rocker ankles to Fort Max - and double as helipads for the alternate modes! Keep reading to have a look.
Thanks to Hau Chi Lee we've got new up close photos of Legends Class Gnaw, coming soon to Titans Return. These photos demonstrate transformation pretty well with a mid-process shot, as well as showing the Titan Master accommodation, which is minimal to say the least! A pair of pegs in the lower jaw are the only sign this toy is in any way meant to interact with the tinier figures, and it remains questionable whether the upper jaw can even close with a Titan Master in place. What might this suggest about the origins of this figure? Keep reading to see the photos and for a bit of speculation!
Looks like confirmation that wave 3 is coming very soon! Weibo user wujingguang has posted the first in-hand shots for Getaway - or rather Autobot Breakaway - and Triggerhappy. Both toys are shown in robot and vehicle mode individually and paired. We also get a shot of the underside of Triggerhappy's vehicle mode, showing some of how that toy functions. Gnaw has already been popping up plenty in photos from Asian sources, so it probably won't be long before we see things like Broadside or Sixshot in front of people's cameras too. Keep reading and check out the photos!
Should we be expecting wave 3 to come calling in the next few weeks? This might say yes! Benjamin Yip in vicinity of Hong Kong has posted a few photos showing off both a carded Gnaw, and a small group out of package! While the figure has been seen quite a bit at venues like SDCC and Cybertron Con, this looks like the start of the toy entering the regular distribution system, eventually coming to a retailer near you. Initial Hong Kong photos tend to be about a month out from the first North American hits, so it may be time to start the hunt again soon! Click through for the photos.
The NYCC Hasbro stream has just ended, and we got a special surprise near the end: the first reveal of Trypticon! ...well, partial
reveal: a grayscale hardcopy leg is what was ready to show - but it's a great-looking piece roughly the same height as Leader-class Sixshot! We've got lots of high-res stills from the stream, plus photos from RFC's diecast as well as Anthony from TFU.INFO, so keep reading for the highlights and images!
Thanks to Hasbro, we have just received the Transformers Generations and RID Official Images from the NYCC2016 Preview Night. Be sure to check out our reports for all the details on what new and coming our way for the full details on these toys - NYCC Full Report
Just in by way of RFC and TFormers we have new images of Broadside, Sky Shadow and more Transformers. Keep checking back as more news and images will be coming in from the event as we speak! Just added Perceptor w/ Convex, Repugnus, Fangry, Sixshot, Brawn, Hotrod, Kickback, Shuffler, Arialbots spru-kit, Trigger Happy, Twinfeno, Autobot Petro, Breakaway, Triple Change Optimus Prime, RID Bludgeon, RID Stormshot, RID Combiners, Marvel Deathshead 2 and more - high-res images just added!
Weibo user foklautoy has posted a series of in-hand images of Titans Return Gnaw! The diminutive Sharkticon is looking good, and we finally get to see how he interacts with a Titan Master - he puts it in his mouth, where else? Gnaw is expected in Wave 3 along with a new Bumblebee and the long-awaited Kickback - but this one's very likely going to be the hardest to find due to troop-building. Keep reading to see the images!
Thanks to Radio Free Cybertron's Melllvarr, we have some new shots of Combiner Wars Liokaiser. The US release of the set is not until November, when it will be an Entertainment Earth exclusive, but it is currently available in Asia, and thus from some import retailers. Via his Twitter, Melllvarr has provided shots of each figure in robot and vehicle mode, closeups of their face sculpts, plus of course the combined Liokaiser. You can keep reading to check it all out for yourself!
