Newsarama has our standard early helping of Transformers comic preview rolling out today. This morning finds us with the full length preview of The Transformers
issue 53, featuring Priscilla Tramontano filling in on the interior art!
This issue is part 4 of the All Hail Optimus story, which from these few pages looks like it's steadily picking up steam going to the home stretch. Keep reading to take a look!
From the smallest to the largest... the Transformers Collector's Club Australia has reported that Titan Class Fortress Maximus has been sighted in Myer stores. The going rate is AUD $360, which works out to about USD $261. Factor in shipping from Australia and... well, let's just say that if you're that crazy, could you get one for us too? Keep reading for the photo!
Thanks to Steve Watts - aka Sharky who has posted to the Ozformers Facebook group with new in hand photos of Titans Return Wheelie, part of the first Legends Class assortment that was found at retail in Australia.
These photos give a good sense of the difference between a Titan Master and Generations 2014 Brainstorm's Headmaster, as Wheelie's occupant compartment is entirely unable to accommodate the older head robot. We're expecting more photos to follow in the coming days, so stay tuned. Keep reading to see the photos!
The developers of upcoming smartphone game Transformers: Earth Wars
have given us the exclusive opportunity to debut the Aerialbot Firefly! Also known as G1 Fireflight - something his bio alludes to - Firefly is presented as a character who will be fast-moving and hard to hit. Keep reading for his official bio and image from the game!
An Australian user of the website 4chan has posted in-hand images of the Titans Return Wave 1 Legends figures! Featuring Rewind, Wheelie, and Stripes, these are the first Titans Return figures to make it to market. Rewind and Wheelie are definitely looking good, and Stripes is... looking like an attempt to make a symmetrically-decorated cat out of a rectangle. Keep reading for a closer look!
It begins! The first recorded sighting of Titans Return Legends is in, and it's from Australia! Paulbot from the Ozformers forums reports that a friend of his by the name of Sharky has found Rewind, Stripes, and Wheelie at Toymate. Retail price is $19.99 AUD (about $14.50 USD at the time of this writing). Keep reading to see photographic proof!
No gimmick or theme here today, but Hisashi Yuki would very much like you to know how cool Unite Warriors Bruticus is, and also to have a look at its TakaraTomy Mall product page. The Combaticon combiner is leaning back from the camera a bit to imply its height and menace. It's a nice looking figure, to be sure. Still... those color-coordinated feet. They're animation accurate, but kind of weird. Keep reading to see!
It's the middle of the month, more or less, and that means it's time to find out what comics are coming a couple months down the line. August will see the final collected volume of Transformers vs GI Joe
, an omnibus reprint of The War Within
, and the kick off of the Titans Return crossover event in The Transformers
and More Than Meets The Eye
, while Till All Are One
seems to be wisely minding its own business for now!
Keep reading for covers and summaries, but beware of possible spoilers!
The final member of the team is here, the smallest, and with no new parts. But yet, somehow it seems that Rust Dust is the best of the bunch! Funny how things work out, isn't it?

Hasbro gives G1 fans the final piece needed to complete their Combiner Wars Defensor with this new Deluxe series Protectobot Groove figure.
Hisashi Yuki has posted a new photo of Unite Warriors Bruticus to Twitter! With the simple message "Next month? Next month!" Yuki has included a look at the figure's packaging alongside the Japanese version of the Combiner Wars Combaticon team itself. Click through to see!
A short time ago this evening we may have finally had the release date for Deluxe Class Groove revealed to us! The US release is an online exclusive as part of a second "May Mayhem" event, following the official retail debut of Victorion this past weekend.
Tonight Amazon listed their own stock of the previously TakaraTomy-exclusive figure, showing a price of $16.99, and indicating a ship date of May 20th for the pre-sale figure. That has since been taken down, but there's a good chance that indicates the intended sale day! Stay tuned for more updates!
RAC reviews Kids Logic Devastator, a really attractive high-end figure with lights, sounds, and a lot of articulation! But also a few issues with fragility - some likely isolated to this copy of the figure and some more likely to be systemic. Click here to go to the review
and see for yourself!
After leaking out early through a variety of sources the Fan-Built Combiner, Victorion, is now officially available! Combiners Pyra Magna, Stormclash, Skyburst, Dust Up, Jumpstream, and Rust Dust are available in a boxset for the SRP of $99.99. Keep reading for a list of our coverage to date and links to purchase your own copy of the figure!
Modified Ninja on Facebook has posted numerous photos of a custom project to turn the Combiner Wars Wheeljack - already virtually a blank canvas - in to Exhaust, the character built around the Diaclone 'Marlboro' Wheeljack deco that caused so much legal trouble as a Masterpiece.
While this would fare no better as a retail product, we think it's a good show of more innovative character choices that could have been - and perhaps held off mold fatigue a bit longer. Click through to see some mirrored photos and a link back to the full original Facebook album!
