Alucardlee on Weibo shared an interesting image recently. A render of Feilong, FansHobby's unofficial MP-size Doublecross, in the colors of, and with a head based on Predacon Megatron in the Botcon 2016 "Transmetal 3" form. The associated text seems to be suggesting this will be some kind of limited edition recolor, and we don't have any details on the particulars of that, cost, or time frame as yet. But if a Masterpiece-alike Doublecross wasn't quite doing it for you, maybe this iteration will catch your interest. See the full size image below!

Along with a minute-long promo video, the official Transformers Facebook page had a short text post giving a basic summary of things to expect on the Transformers side of the show - one of which is "exclusive product". You can read the full post below for more details, and see the video promo!
Artist Aaron Archer, former Hasbro toy designer and head of the Transformers brand, has posted to Instagram that he was recently present to celebrate the retirement of TakaraTomy's Hideaki Yoke.

In the second of a three-part series on Toy Fair predictions, RAC focuses on less sure things: the things we might
see. We know many of these are coming, but we don't know when,
or what they'll look like, or many of the specifics outside of a name and pricepoint. So what are the most intriguing "maybes" to us for Toy Fair 2017? Keep reading and find out!

Slated for 2017 and with no details yet given, it's far too early to know what shape Hasbro's new Transformers Fan Club will take. But even if we don't know what it will
be, we probably all have thoughts on what it should
be. RAC definitely does - and he feels the time is ripe for a change. Keep reading for his thoughts on the issue, this time written in the first
The official TakaraTomy Transformers Twitter account, @TF_pr, would like to remind you that Unite Warriors Lynxmaster is due very soon! Lynxmaster is the TakaraTomy version of Sky Reign, the Sky Lynx-based combiner from Combiner Wars. Keep reading to see the image!
After nearly a year of speculation stemming from Hasbro's termination of the BotCon license, we finally have concrete info on what happens next: HasCon
, Hasbro's official convention happening between 9/8/17 and 9/10/17 in Providence, Rhode Island! Few details are available yet, but the HasCon site is live and (supposedly) accepting signups to keep posted on the details of the con. Keep reading for the official press release!
Tomorrow evening will see the doors open on Hasbro's yearly night before NYCC presentation where we get a preview of things to come in the following months. This is our last big look ahead before Toy Fair in February. Last year's presentation was the official debut of Titans Return - after an unintentional slip of some of its art assets at Botcon 2015. It was a major reveal that sparked a frenzy of excitement and interest all through our fandom, from the very first blurry images taken through a thick glass door before the event opened. So it's only natural to hope that we get something similarly big this time around. Keep reading to see our predictions!
Hasbro wrapped up their final Botcon product preview panel this year with a tease of the long-awaited Overlord. Now thanks to frequent source Mr. Chaos
who has relayed more store computer info, we have confirmation of that figure and its status as a Leader Class figure! Overlord's assortment is to come after Sixshot, which should mean wave 4. More interesting is the other figure in the assortment, listed as Sky Shadow. Could this be the name for Sixshot's recolor/retool? Or might this be an all new mold? With luck, New York Comic Con may tell the tale in another month's time!

Nosecone is just Brawl with the drill we saw previously on BotCon 2016's General Ramhorn. But he fixes the problems with Brawl's execution just as Ramhorn did: namely the floppy, horrible waist. It's now just weird instead of weird and not functioning properly. Plus, if you were using Computron's leg as reference, you may
have been doing vehicle mode wrong. I was! Click here to see the 52-image gallery!
