Over on Facebook, Loopaza has uncovered new info about Masterpiece Beast Wars Dinobot! After what's seemed like forever waiting, we're finally inching towards a real release for our third Beast Wars MP mold, which is reported to be designated as MP-41. But while the release info offers no new images or other details about the figure directly, we do get to find out a release date, and a price to go with it. And it's a bit of a shocker. Take a seat, and keep reading for the details!
A Toys R Us employee who requests to remain unidentified but has a reliable track record
has revealed some new discoveries from the inventory system, featuring mainly new Movie-series merchandise, plus a couple of as-yet unknown exclusives. Keep reading for a full list!
The Grand Maximus preorder period is over, and TakaraTomy have announced the results. While the recolor of Titans Return
Fortress Maximus did meet its prerequisite of 2000 preorders and will be made, it couldn't quite reach the goal of 3000 that was necessary for TakaraTomy to manufacture the special Pretender shell for the smaller Headmaster figure. It's a pity, but focus on the positive: for the first time since we got Titan Class figures, there is an exclusive recolor available of one. Keep reading for the announcement from TakaraTomy.
Note that date: the official Transformers Facebook page has just announced that a second HasCon will be happening September 6-8th, 2019.
At the moment, no other information is available, though Hasbro thanks fans for "making (the) first HasCon a huge success". More information as it becomes available - but with us being two years out, that could well be a while. In the meantime, keep reading to see the announcement!
Loopaza on Facebook has shared information from retailer listings, revealing TakaraTomy releases for new movie products starting in April of next year - and if you pay attention to leak info, some of this is going to sound familiar! Along with this news is further signs of Movie Masterpiece Barricade being on the way, with MPM-5 among the listed goods. We'll go through the list for you, so keep reading!
TakaraTomy has updated the product page on TakaraTomy Mall and also shared the info on Twitter: Initially Legends Grand Maximus was relying on meeting a minimum preorder total of 2000 for production to occur, and with just about a week left in the preorder window they've succeeded! At this point it's sure that the unexpected Fortress Maximus redeco will be made, but there's still some ways left before the bonus Pretender shell follows suit. Just as a reminder, Grand Maximus is due to ship on March 31, 2018. Keep reading to see the TakaraTomy tweet - in Japanese, of course.
Not too long ago we were treated to a selection of voice samples from the brand new sound chip being designed for the Encore edition of Fire Convoy. Alongside the release of this month's Figure King magazine we have a new set of three voice clips, this time featuring God Magnus! Two of them are rather straight forward, but the other clip is just baffling enough with machine translation to defy an easily interpreted meaning. We have the link to the TakaraTomy page with the clips below, go give them a listen now!
A new report on CNN Money is bringing attention to the ripples that the bankruptcy filing of Toys R Us is likely to make in the toy industry. Hasbro's quarterly earnings call recently noted a healthy growth for the company above expectations in the third quarter. But the fourth quarter, reliant on the all important shopping holidays, is looking to be less fruitful. During the lead up to the bankruptcy decision, Hasbro made clear their intent to maintain normal business relations with Toys R Us, indicating how much value they still carry as a retail partner.

If you don't remember Battle Command Optimus Prime, don't feel bad. It was a TakaraTomy product during their Age of Extinction line designed as a centerpiece figure and vague playset for the One-Step Changer figures of the time. We have a partial catalog image showing this toy coming around again, now under the ID TC-09 (though no sign so far of TC-01 through 08, oddly). At this point we have no information on whether it will have a new deco, or anything else to set it apart from LA-01 Battle Command Optimus, but we should start to learn more before its release in April 2018. Keep reading to see the image!
Following on from the release of The Last Knight
in a 4K edition, we've now got listing via Best Buy for releases of the previous 4 movies at the same "Ultra HD" quality. Coming in standard combo packs with 4K, blu-ray, and digital formats, the rest of the movie series is due out on December 5th, priced at $27.99 each. The covers boast of added high dynamic range to deepen the the color detail, however we presume this process is still not capable of deepening the plots of the films. Keep reading for cover samples.
Just to be entirely clear, as of the time of writing they are not in stock for purchase. But, Walgreens has added a listing page to their website for the exclusive two pack of Cloudraker and Wingspan, bringing the completion of Hasbro's Clone offerings that much closer. Canada has already seen these hit retail in some capacity, in their case via EB Games - though still with the Walgreens sticker on the packaging. This move puts the Clones on track to start hitting around the same time Brainstorm did last year. Keep reading for a link to the page!
The Encore edition of Car Robots Fire Convoy and God Magnus are going to feature updated, and supposedly expanded sound chips featuring a lot of new dialogue and sound effects. To highlight this, TakaraTomy has posted three samples taken from what's going to be put on Fire Convoy's sound chip. Those who've been around long enough to have an original Fire Convoy will recognize that each of the phrases previewed here are brand new to the toy. Click through for a link to the TakaraTomy official site page, and a list of the phrases!
We brought you the first word last night that the LG-EX Grand Maximus exclusive would feature a bonus Titan Master Pretender shell based on Power of The Primes tooling if at least 3000 preorders were received. But there was yet more hidden in the promotional copy that we've found out since then - one of which calls the toy itself in to question! Keep reading to find out more!
Just in from TakaraTomy is the first reveal of two upcoming exclusive Transformers products due in early 2018, and they're both quite unexpected! First is Greatshot, a retool of Sixshot based on the character from Transformers Victory. This features a new helmet, robot mode chest, shoulder caps, and beast mode head. The other is Grand Maximus, marking the first new character recolor of a Titan Class figure by either TakaraTomy or Hasbro. And it appears if there are more than 3000 preorders for Grand Max, it will come with a bonus Pretender Shell - borrowed from a Power of The Primes tooling. Click through see the promo images!
