has gotten a hold of TakaraTomy's just-released versions of Broadside and Sixshot! Want to see how they look side by side, and how the Sixshots look with their Headmasters/Titan Masters swapped? Keep reading to see!
TFormers Sponsor Robotkingdom

Japanese retailer HobbySearch
has posted in-package images of the impending November TakaraTomy Legends Series releases: Sixshot, Doublecross, Misfire, and Broadside are all due within the next week or so - and the two Deluxes from this assortment are receiving new Japan-exclusive Targetmaster partners! Keep reading for details.
Following the big announcement from TakaraTomy. USA pre-orders are now up with pricing and preorder information on this legendary mash-up are confirmed! Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Street Fighter, these remold/recolored figures exclusive to Takara Tomy mall.
One of the wackiest pieces of licensed crossover merchandise lately, we've got high quality images to share now of the Street Fighter II x Transformers two packs that were revealed to us through various magazine images on Tuesday. We have better photos of the figures, and news of another preorder goal campaign - though this one feels a bit less impressive than the prospect of the special pretender shell Grand Maximus would have gained. Keep reading for details and all the photos!
Planet Iacon has posted a set of new, larger scans showing off the TakaraTomy Street Fighter X Transformers
two-packs! Scheduled for Late May, the Ken vs. Chun Li and Ryu vs. M. Bison sets are ridiculous in all the best possible ways - and not too
far off from TakaraTomy's usual pricing for figures of their size class, though having to purchase both at once kind of stings. Keep reading for more info!
We have an early look inside the pages of this month's Figure King magazine, and while we once thought all it would have to show us was Masterpiece Dinobot, it seems we were quite mistaken. The feature seems to be the reveal of an upcoming pair of exclusives from TakaraTomy, redecoing select Transformers molds as characters from Street Fighter II. The individual who apparently took the original photo was evidently so worried about being credited that he obscured a large portion of the contents of the page with his name stamp, but we can see enough to know who's in the lineup. Keep reading to find out more!
Slipstream may have come out on top in our recent Twitter poll, but Nightbird was right behind! So today we have a gallery of another of the October 2015 wave of TakaraTomy's Legends Series, featuring LG15 Nightbird Shadow. A very shiny recolor of Generations Arcee with a new head and chest, plus extra weapons. And remember that running change to Arcee the resulted in not being able to hold the original accessories correctly? Nightbird's new weapons account for that with notched handles so they can slide farther in the hands. I had a lot of fun shooting this one, and you can check out all 180 photos in the gallery below!
This month, we're digging in to some of our back catalog toys to bring you some "retro" toy galleries while we wait for more of the latest to come out. And as voted for by our Twitter readers, the first one up in this series is LG16 Slipstream. This retool of the original Generations Windblade was released all the way back in October of 2015 - how the time flies, right? With all the colors to look at home among any group of 1988 Decepticons, Slipstream has a great deco, if not the most fun mold to start from. We've got 145 photos of it for you, including side by sides with Windblades old and new - keep reading to see the full gallery!
Or possibly your Titans Return
Perceptor with the working microscope... either way, Hero-X's latest round of previews for their upcoming Generations 2018
book, the latest in the long-running series, isn't exactly big. The samples check in at 240x170 pixels. But we do get some idea of content, with a look at recent and upcoming Legends Series figures, a feature on Transformers: Age of Extinction,
and a "Backstage" section focusing on the design process. Keep reading to see the samples, and be prepared to squint!
The HeroX Twitter account has shared another sample from the exclusive comic story coming in the 2018 edition Transformers Generations
book. In the isolated panel we get to see, Slugslinger and Octane appear to be menacing a bullet train. Those jerks. Hot Rod and Twin Twist are responding to the situation and... that's all we get for now! The book releases later this month, at which point we'll likely get a look at the complete story. For now, you can see the preview image mirrored below. Keep reading!
HeroX on Twitter has shred another art teaser for the upcoming Transformers Generations 2018 book. This image features Overlord menacing Bumblebee in a scene from the book's comic story pages. Generations 2018 is to be published in Japan on November 18th and can be expected to include photos and information about at least this year's Transformers toys - and likely content related to upcoming ones we know of already. At the current time, it's unknown if it will contain an order form for a special exclusive toy. You can find the new art sample below!
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.
Fresh out to retail in Japan ...as of last weekend... is LG49 Triggerhappy! Targetmaster Triggerhappy comes with the brand new Blowpipe partner figure, sporting new engineering as compared to Firebolt and Recoil from last month's Hot Rod
. Triggerhappy has a modified deco and minor retool in adding a 5mm port to the top of the jet to accommodate Blowpipe in vehicle mode. We've got a gallery of almost 250 photos for you to check out. Keep reading to find the photos and a brief table of contents!
