Power Surge Sideswipe is part of the simplified line of RID figures. Sideswipe is a chunky robot, that reminds me of 80s Transformer. Activating the sounds is a bit awkward, with or without the Minicon attached. Most collectors will pass on this but I can really see kids enjoying it.
I would like to think that all of us can point to at least one example of how the Transformers toy line, shows or comics have improved our lives. Whether it has been through the happiness of meeting like-minded enthusiasts or the ownership of excellent toys, the enjoyment of well-written comics or admiration of tremendous artwork, surely we can all point to some aspect of the brand and hobby which brings us happiness. I would like to think if you’re reading this, it’s because of a choice you have made to give part of your time to the hobby.
Thanks once again to John DeLuna, we also have pictures of the seventh "bonus" figure that ships alongside Impactor. While the identity of the figure was revealed unofficially a while back thanks to an image from an overseas auction, we are in this one case avoiding making direct mention of the character in case you managed not to be spoiled then and truly want a surprise with your final shipment. Beyond this point is a nice gallery of photos revealing the toy, so beware!
John DeLuna from Radio Free Cybertron is once more bringing us our very first look at the newly shipped Transformers Figure Subscription Service 4 toy! No surprise here as the final figure of the batch, it's Impactor! And we have lots of nice pictures showing it off, along with the pile of accessories seemingly randomly borrowed from Generations Arcee. Get a close look at the new headsculpt and the deco, plus see a shot of the bio card - click through to find it all in the gallery below!
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!
TFND has posted a wealth of images from their 12th annual event in Taipei, and somebody brought a lot of interesting toys to the con, some as yet unreleased!

All that and more after the jump, so keep reading!

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!
While no one will be surprised to see it, we have some nice new photos of Legends series Fortress Maximus showing off its Master Sword accessory. Though debuting first in the SDCC exclusive special release of Fortress Maximus, and a promotional giveaway in Hasbro's Asian markets, the sword is a focal accessory for the TakaraTomy release, tying to the original toy as released in Japan and portrayed in The Headmasters. LG-31 Fortress Maximus will be released near the end of September at a price of 25,000 Yen. Keep reading to see all the photos from Dengeki Hobby!
