We've been getting a slow but steady trickle of Transformers: The Last Knight
merchandise news, most notably regarding the new Voyager-scaled Optimus Prime and the Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet. Now, thanks to the Taipei Movie & Toy Convention, we can see in-package images of the latter! Looks like Last Knight
packaging isn't terribly far removed from Age of Extinction
- though we can hope it will be a bit easier to tell the Generations figures from the One Step Changers at a glance. Keep reading to see the images!
The Shanghai SGC event is happening this weekend, and we have an interesting look inside the MMC display. Specifically a few photos have been posted from their Reformatted series and while most of it is previously seen items like their unofficial Tarn, Roadbuster, or recently revealed IDW-inspired Megatron, we have one new reveal: A color testshot of MMC's IDW-based Rodimus. A prototype was seen at TFCon this year, but this is the first showing in color, and it looks like Mastermind has nailed this one. Keep reading to see the photos and photographer credit!
Once again thanks to translations by Sanchimaru and image editing (and some localization) by Jalaguy, we have the conclusion to Hayato Sakamoto's Unite Warriors web comic story. While this jam packed nine pages does conclude the story that's been ongoing for a portion of the Unite Warriors line, it needn't necessarily mean the line itself is coming to its end. Especially when there are still alternate toolings of Combiner Wars molds TakaraTomy hasn't touched yet! In any case, you can see the concluding chapter mirrored below, and click here
for the translated version of the previous chapter!
The official Iron Factory Twitter account has posted six images outlining their plans for 2017. Among those plans are IF-EX20 Wing of Tyrant, a really nice looking unofficial Legends-scale Starscream! That will be followed by versions B and V, Thundercracker and Skywarp, along with a IF-EX20F Fang of Tyranny set featuring Thrust, Dirge, and Ramjet. All this, plus Sixshot, Bruticus, and more!

Relative new face to the unofficial robot goods scene Fans Hobby has undertaken a product launch event during this year's SGC event in Shanghai. The Master Builder Series is Masterpiece scaled figures from a range of inspirations, including the previously seen Arch Enemy (Black Convoy/Scourge), and its heroic recolor Gunfighter II (get it, "G2"?), plus newer items like their Monsterbots, and farther out projects like figures based on Roadbuster and Powermaster Optimus. You can check out Fans Hobby's own display case shots below - keep reading!
As we mentioned in the post about the new PR image of Mindwipe,
it's new toy day in Japan! And the ever-talented Alfes2010 has posted images of his freshly acquired Legends series Chromedome! Sporting a new deco, a new Titan Master faceplate as compared to Titans Return
Deluxe Chromedome, and a newly-decoed Titan Master vehicle, Chromedome is the one Japanese figure your Headmasters can't fight without. Keep reading to see!
This would appear to be it: the second half of Unite Warriors Ruination's tie-in comic by artist Hayato Sakamoto (More Than Meets The Eye
#s 39, 44, 48-9) shows the battle between Ruination and Scourge Grand Prime to prevent Unicron from absconding with the entire planet Cybertron as his new body! While a translation is not yet available, this installment also comes to a definitive end - is Baldigus the last Unite Warriors release? Keep reading to see the pages!
TakaraTomy has posted a new image of Legends Mindwipe, who is more or less being released at this very second in Japan
! With a ship date of 11/26, Mindwipe finishes out the trio of Decepticon Headmasters as seen in the anime Transformers: The Headmasters.

Being the very first we're hearing of it, most likely "Year of The Rooster Optimus Prime" makes you imagine another rerelease and/or color tweak of MP-10 Optimus, right? Well, surprisingly enough it isn't! Out of left field, this new Platinum Chinese New Year release is based on Hybrid Style Optimus Prime
, a tiny, highly articulate and somewhat over-engineered figure from around 2006. TFND has a few shots of the new set in package which we've mirrored. And if you think the small size will make this affordable, don't bet on it - the original release was on the expensive side even in 2006's economy!
The TransformersAsia Facebook page shared out an image today promoting the special bonus item that will be distributed with preorders of the upcoming Masterpiece Cheetor. Very much how Masterpiece Inferno included an Optimus Prime figurine, Cheetor will be coming with a little metal figure of Optimus Primal. As usual, this is available from Asian retailers and importers who source from outside Japan, so be sure to check with your shop of choice to make sure if their stock will include this.

Via Robot Kingdom on Facebook we've got packaging images for Platinum Edition Unicron. This release of the Supreme Class Unicron toy again features the remolded parts to improve resemblance to Unicron's appearance in the G1 cartoon, and looks to remain very similar to the deco seen on the Amazon Exclusive US release several years ago. You can see package front and back, plus with the front flap opened to reveal the figure within. All the photos are mirrored below, so click through and have a look!
