Big Bad Toy Store have just sent out an announce for new in-stock listings for the Transformers Generations Titan wars Return Deluxe 02 & Voyager 02 Waves figures that just went up.
The deluxes 02 wave contains Highbrow, Chromedome, Mindwipe, and Wolfwire. The voyagers will include Alpha Trion and Astrotrain in the wave 02 case. Read on for the full details and ordering links.
It's that time again! We're up to episode 4 of 8 of the Combiner Wars mini-series, and this one introduces Megatron into the mix. Where has he been since the end of the war? What's he up to? Is he more a Frank Welker or a Corey Burton Megatron? We've got a go90 link for US readers and a YouTube embed for everyone else, so keep reading to find out!
Computron is pretty neat! The ankles and other weaknesses in the legs may bother you a bit, but they don't ruin the figure for RAC. The legs aren't Menasor bad, though. It's a good looking figure, and has the most new parts in a Combiner Wars boxset since Victorion. Click here to read and watch the review!
With our thanks to Hasbro for making this available to us, we have our first gallery from the Titan Force SDCC/Hasbro Toy Shop exclusive box set! We're starting with Brainstorm, which while sometimes looked on unfavorably for being a Blurr retool really does its best to set itself apart. This version is more geared to the IDW comics colors, while the eventual Walgreens exclusive single release will be toy-inspired. We've got over 100 photos of this figure, so keep reading to check out our full gallery. And stay tuned for more coverage of this set!
We've been paying a lot of attention to Computron lately! Hot on the heels of the Combiner Wars Computron release (which RAC has been expertly covering for us!) comes the Unite Warriors version bringing its own take to the table. Blacklai has gotten hands on a set already and posted a nice gallery, giving special attention to showing the differences between versions.

We've looked at all the individual Technobots now: Afterbreaker, Cybaxx, Lightsteed, Nosecone, Scattershot, Scrounge, and Strafe. (Alphabetical order, because why not?) Now it's time to look at the last few aspects of the set: Scattershot's torso mode, the hands and feet, and Computron itself! Keep reading for 93 photos of Computron!
With wave 1 only just really hitting its stride for in-store availability, we now have indication that wave 2 is entering the US distribution system. Silvershot has provided photos of a sighting of Deluxe Highbrow (with Chromedome just barely visible behind), and of all places it came from a Walgreens in Los Angeles! Of course these are at a premium above that which we already regularly pay, ringing up at $19.99 each. The very random nature of the tiny toy shelves at Walgreens mean this may remain somewhat isolated within the chain - but wave 2 is out there, so keep your eyes open! Check below for the photos.
Scattershot v2.0 is definitely an improvement over the Betatron version. The International Edition is going to add yet more features, but I feel like within Hasbro's typical limitations this is the best possible Scattershot we could have gotten. Click here to read and watch the review!
Coming in a little bit different format this time around, we actually have our first look at the solicitations for November's Transformers-related comics from IDW themselves! Alas this does deprive of us the full size cover previews we're used to in the catalog-style format IDW offers them in, we do have blurbs and a few decent size cover previews for the titles including Optimus Prime #1, More Than Meets The Eye: Revolution #1, Till All Are One #5, and the final issue of Revolution itself! We've mirrored the relevant pages and sections, spo click through and have a look.
Autobase Aichi has posted images from a recent eBay auction featuring a test shot of Titans Return Galvatron! Molded in off-white and teal - the same plastic colors as the Blaster test shot with the unusual face - this testshot doesn't seem to have any real differences from the final release. But testshots just have a certain something, and Nucleon's tiny Megatron head comes off a lot better in the less metallic grade of plastic. Keep reading to see!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: The guys catch up on the SDCC exclusives, Brian and Rob both have Combiner Wars Computron in-hand and share their thoughts, and we share our thoughts on Combiner Wars Episode 3. Plus, as always, we catch up on the week's Transformers news that you need to know about! All that and more on this week's Radio Free Cybertron!
ToysRUs Canada made an interesting decision this weekend: they're having a Transformers sale. That isn't the interesting part (though Titans Return Fortress Maximus is 25% off and that may be of note to our Canadian readers!) No, the interesting part is the banner for the sale which is all photos of 2017 Titans Return toys. Besides Voyager Optimus Prime and Leader Sixshot, this is our first kinda-official look at Deluxe Doublecross, and his package art! Keep reading to see!
Strafe... he's so close to being the best possible Strafe! Some detachable guns and some red thighs, and if half of what I've heard about Unite Warriors Blast Off is true, this Strafe - based on Combiner Wars Wave 2 Aerialbot Air Raid - would blow him out of the water. Or, er, sky. ...space? One of those. Click here to read and watch the review!
Earlier today we brought you a look at the early iTunes preview for issue 56 of The Transformers, due in shops on August 31st. Now via Previews World, we have our first look at the subscription variant cover, drawn by artist Casey Coller, featuring an appearance by GI Joe's Scarlett, and an Alpha Trion looking like he's getting ready for his toy tie in! You can get a look at the cover below, and stay with us for the full preview and review of the issue later this month.
