We have a quick few new photos of the figures from the Platinum Edition Planet of Junk Clash set. Hot Rod and Wreck-Gar get the most attention, with Scrapheap appearing only as a motorcycle for Wreck-Gar - and looking mostly indistinguishable thanks to their shared plastic colors. While we wait to see a more comprehensive look, this does give us a bit better sense of the decos for the toys. Click through to see the mirrored photos.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: It’s that season again, Toy Fair is coming, and with it leaks and blurry images are on the upswing. This week we get our first glimpses of Titans Return Mindwipe, Scourge, Chromedome and Alpha Trion. Plus we speculate on what’s left for Toy Fair 2016, discuss the rest of this week’s news and more!
You remember that time Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, and Bumblebee all turned into one big robot, right? Pepperidge Farm Kabaya remembers. Kabaya's next assortment is something labeled "Transformers Block Wars" in the magazine scan posted by @p2099 on Twitter. Whether this indicates the modular combining ability or a connection to Kre-O, it's tough to say - but the sculpts seem to be based on the budget Cyber Battalion figures. Keep reading to see the combined form of the four most recognizeable Transformers characters!
Hisashi Yuki's Twitter has found itself the home to a new photo of Legends Series Skids this morning, showing off both modes! This is of course the TakaraTomy release of 2013's Generations More Than Meets The Eye-style Skids with a deeper shade of blue and more paint. Keep reading to see!
Autobase Aichi has collected a series of blurry images that are circulating of upcoming Titans Return figures! Besides the most recognizeable things - Scourge, Mindwipe, and Chromedome's head - we've also got what appears to be a Voyager-class Alpha Trion figure! Keep reading for more details.
SHUTDOWN! A vengeful god stalks the corridors of the Lost Light, murdering everyone who makes eye contact. The crew must answer two questions: Why have they been singled out for punishment? And how do you stop someone who can kill you just by thinking about it?
Mesothulas reveals himself to Prowl as the Wreckers try (and fail) to cope with the Noisemaze. The only ones left on the outside are Impactor and Kup... and they've got a Beast War to attend to before they can reach the others. Transformers: Sins of The Wreckers #3 is written and drawn by Nick Roche with colors by Josh Burcham. Click here to go to the review!
Randy (Powered Convoy) on Allspark has produced some very nice high resolution scans of the recent issue of Figure King magazine, giving us the best look so far at Masterpiece Optimus Primal, and the Unite Warriors Combaticons - of course focused around the new Blast Off. While no new meaningful details are forthcoming from Primal, these scans do help us pick out a bit more on the Combaticon side of things. We've cropped out several items, to see these, get more details and a link back to the originals, keep reading!
That special time of year is quickly approaching again. Toy Fair 2016 is happening as always in New York, beginning with Hasbro's fan media event on Saturday, February 13th. But with everything Hasbro has already shown us via NYCC and a special conference call in November, what is there to be revealed next month? How much more could there be for us to see that hasn't already been shown to us, especially since Combiner Wars is now shifting to the sidelines and Titans Return hasn't even begun yet? Keep reading to find out some of what we think we might see newly revealed!
Inspired by a promotional tweet from Hero-X highlighting their premium figures for the latest volume of Transformers Generations, Hisashi Yuki has taken Runabout - the Generations Blackjack mold counterpart to the upcoming Million Publishing Runamuck - and let him go out for a spin with a grayscale copy of the eagerly anticipated Unite Warriors Blast Off! Keep reading to have another look at the shuttle everyone's waiting for.
Thanks to jas d on Youtube we have our first look at Combiner Wars Sky Lynx in video. Sky Lynx is at this point likely to be the final new mold designed for Combiner Wars, and so has a lot riding on it. Unlike Brawl who carried similar hopes, this video suggests Sky Lynx is managing to pull it off for the most part with no significant flaws called out. We've embedded the video for your convenience, but caution is advised if you're susceptible to motion sickness from fast movement in videos - there are some amazing things happening here with post-production image stabilization!
Artist Priscilla Tramontano has posted on Twitter showing off her contribution to issue 3 of Sins of The Wreckers: a retailer incentive cover. The art features a compiled record of the casualties from Last Stand of The Wreckers, being looked over by Verity. Sins of The Wreckers #3 hits shops this coming Wednesday, and as always you can find a review of the issue first on TFormers eariier in the week. Click through to check out the art!
The All Things Geeky! blog has posted images of Combiner Wars G2 Menasor! Acquiring the set for an amazingly good price changed the writer's mind about getting it at all - but it still has all the flaws of the previous iteration of Menasor. Keep reading for the photos and a link to the blog!
A user on Weibo has highlighted a post today featuring a few shots of the Optimus from the 'One Shall Stand' Platinum Edition set - a post from November! While it didn't get much attention at the time, apparently, it's become rather more relevant now with some knowledge of what the redeco is for. Of note here are robot mode images, one of which shows that the clear light blue panels on the arms end up almost disappearing in some situations. Click through to have a look.
