Generation-Toy has posted new photos to Weibo! Showing off their upcoming unofficial Jazz figure, the figure's name is given as... GT-4 Jazz. That's unusual! The figure is an interesting color scheme, with a grayish silver that calls back to Jazz's movie incarnation and blue parts where his robot mode was traditionally black, which could be a callback to Marvel Comics or Fall of Cybertron - or both!

Actor Allen Phoenix has been added to the Internet Movie Database's page for Transformers 5 - a fact Mr. Phoenix retweeted himself, which seems like pretty good confirmation to us! Phoenix is currently filming a part in the upcoming All Eyez On Me, a biopic based on the life of rapper Tupac Shakur, and will presumably join Michael Bay's production in June to play the part of Luke Reynolds.

Tonight on Twitter, Hisashi Yuki has more Legends Series Titans Return samples in the office, and he's showing us different ways to use all the little Titan Masters. Weirdwolf and Skullcruncher demonstrate the Cross Head On process by switching their Titan Masters, while Hardhead piles on a couple of friends thanks to the extra carry capacity of the tank mode and the handy addition of the mini-tank vehicle that comes with that toy. You can check out both photos in the full article below!
Along with Wheelie, Goktimus Prime has uploaded a video showing Titans Return Rewind. The Legends figure draws lots of inspiration from the IDW comics as shown in the robot mode. The video also shows the data tablet and tank modes, as well as giving a look at the screen sticker with cassette "wallpaper" based on the deco of the original G1 Rewind toy. You can click through to take a look at the video, embedded below!
A small amount of Titans Return merchandise has hit retail in Australia, and we haven't had long to wait for fans to start showing them off. From Goktimus Prime we have a Youtube video featuring Legends Class Wheelie.
The video shows off the clever transformation engineering, a quick rundown of the robot mode's build, and a short segment on what will or won't fit in the vehicle mode's occupant compartment. The video review is embedded below, so check it out!
Are we destined to get evil Decepticons twins for basically every Masterpiece Autobot car? ...probably. The latest TakaraTomy effort towards that goal is MP-25L, whose name appears to be "Loudpedal." This was revealed via a very small photo of one of the upcoming Japanese hobby magazines, which also shows that Loudpedal will have their own stand! Keep reading for the photo, and what little info we have.
Hisashi Yuki has treated us to a pair of new photos tonight showing off upcoming Legends Series releases. First, Unite Warriors Cyclonus has a meet and greet with the new Scourge and his Sweeps, or maybe just a new troop of Sweeps - it's so hard to tell the difference! And in the second image, Blurr demonstrates his rapid transformation skill, making it seem as though there are actually four of him staged in progressive steps of the sequence! Amazing! To check out these photos for yourself, keep reading!

You get a Megatron! You get a Megatron! Everybody who handled Gun Megatron in the G1 cartoon gets a Megatron! The latest Masterpiece to get in on the Oprah-like Megatron giveaway is MP-29 Shockwave! Also known by his Japanese name of Laserwave, the Decepticon caretaker will be reissued in non-Japanese Asian territories, and those who preorder will be gifted with the - what, at least third? - nontransforming pistol form of the Decepticon leader. Keep reading for more info!

Keep reading for the photo!
Thanks to Steve Watts - aka Sharky who has posted to the Ozformers Facebook group with new in hand photos of Titans Return Wheelie, part of the first Legends Class assortment that was found at retail in Australia.
These photos give a good sense of the difference between a Titan Master and Generations 2014 Brainstorm's Headmaster, as Wheelie's occupant compartment is entirely unable to accommodate the older head robot. We're expecting more photos to follow in the coming days, so stay tuned. Keep reading to see the photos!
Greg "M Sipher" Sepelak has made an interesting discovery about the reissued blind-bag Kreon Micro-Changers appearing at US dollar stores - they're not reissues at all!
