It's the question that's been on all our minds since Liokaiser was stealthily revealed at BotCon: what will the individual robots' names be? Some got to keep their Japanese names, some got riffs on those, one got just plain left out in favor of a Mini-Con... and one got a pretty significant rename from another Japanese-only character. Keep reading to see!
So, uh, what the heck? We got a good firsthand look at all the souvenir figures the Transformers Collector's Club offered at BotCon 2016, and there was no sign of a Bluestreak. But here, off of Chinese Auction Site TaoBao, is that very figure. What's up with that? No idea, but you can get a look at the figure by clicking through to see the images!
It was revealed to us by Hasbro's Ben Montano and John Warden during our interview at Botcon that we could expect to enjoy a third season of the Robots in Disguise
cartoon this fall - as "season three" was how they were internally referring to the second half of the season two production block.
Now via the Instagram of Hasbro Studios' Tim Cahill we have a photo of a voice recording session described as being for a season 4 script he contributed to. It looks like the current RID series is here to stay a while, surely to the joy of its fans! Keep reading for a copy of the image and its attached comments.
Sneaking its reveal out in the display cases at Botcon, we've got another look at Hasbro's Liokaiser tonight. This seems to be the same kind of box-panel co-sell image, though at a reasonably larger size. We can see clearly the presence of what looks like an Arms Micron present, which would be a first for a retail Hasbro product. Currently it's not known what channel this may release by, but common speculation right now leans towards possibly being Platinum Edition. Keep reading and take a look!
Man, you should've seen the stacks of collector coins like these that vendors had for sale at BotCon 2016. I guess they're not for everybody! The packaging's always neat to look at, though, and the images that site sponsor Robotkingdom have put up for Unite Warriors Bruticus' collector's coin are no exception there. Keep reading to see!
It's been questioned and suspected since the reveal of the San Diego Comic Con exclusive Titan Force set. But with Hasbro's reps at Botcon being tight-lipped about it, there was just enough doubt to cause some worry. But it looks like we can rest easy as we have evidence now for the general retail release of Titans Return Brainstorm. While the SDCC version will have unique coloring, it looks like there will be a much easier - and less expensive - option forthcoming for this retool! Keep reading for more info and photo evidence!
It looks like a new wave of Robots in Disguise Warrior Class figures is starting to hit in Asia. Coming from Wilton Wong we have a few pictures showing Scorponok, one of the new mold figures in the assortment.
Scorponok's toy debuted during Toy Fair this year and turned up once again in the Botcon display cases, but otherwise hasn't seen a lot of attention prior to hitting stores. You can check out these photos to get good looks at the figure in both modes - click through to see them now!
Our good friend Joe Moscone has let us know that he's once again working to raise funds for charity from the collection of toys he's built up over the years. Working a decade as PR representative for Hasbro's many toy lines such as Transformers, GI Joe and Star Wars. He's collected enough that he's able to turn his love of toys into something that can help others.
Through the joys of toy collecting, you can help too. Read on about how to involved with Joe's cause, The Greg Olsen Foundation, to support hospitals and doctors helping others. 100% of all money raised goes to the cause from the auctions they have running now through June 13th! Read on for the details from, Joe.
Amiami's hobby news Twitter has posted more images from Tokyo Toy Show, including pricing and release data! Most notably the release data for the newcomers, Masterpiece Thrust and Unite Warriors Lynxmaster. Both will be released in late October, with Thrust costing 14,800 Yen and Lynymaster running an even 15,000. Keep reading to see the mirrored photos!
Tokyo Toy Show has kicked off in Japan, and the first round of reveals are coming in. As promised previously we have the reveal of the Unite Warriors version of Sky Reign, reportedly called Lynxmaster. Joining him is the first reveal of Masterpiece Thrust, the entirely unsurprising remold of the remold of the revitalized Masterpiece Seeker body. For now we just have a couple of small images thanks to Twitter user gadepon, but we're going to be keeping watch for more to roll in. Meanwhile click through for more info and these first teaser images.
We have a few new in hand photos of the Legends wave from Titans Return. While these are not especially an amazing revelation at the moment, these do give a first clear look at Stripes - at least a first since Botcon - and some new size comparisons with more recent toys.
Of note, Rewind and Wheelie seem distinctly shorter than the previous couple of years' Legends Class figures. And as a special find, it seems that the Masterpiece Daniel Witwicky minifigure manages a decent fit inside Wheelie's vehicle mode! You can see all of this in the full article below.
Following the news in April about the registration of "Hascon" by Hasbro, for what most are assuming their plans for a new officially run fan focused convention for Transformers, and other properties.
We learn today from the gents at TF@Moon that the company registered the name "Hasbro-con" on May 12th along with the domain name "www.hasbro-con.com" to go with it.
This all we know about Hasbro's plans following the last Transformers BotCon and GI Joe conventions this year.
From our forums, chuckdawg1999 has brought us a review for the brand new Strongarm & Sawtooth Mini-Con Weaponizer pack. We got an up close look at this during Botcon, and now we get to see some hands on with it showing the workings of the Mini-Con, the armor parts, and the new Legends scale Strongarm figure. We have the review embedded below, so go check it out!
A customizer who goes by @yasuu22 on Twitter has posted images of their take on BotCon 2016's Magnaboss figure - and you can definitely say it's an upgrade! Going well above and beyond the mere sticker sheets for the retail versions of Silverbolt, Prowl, and Ironhide, yasuu22 has given each of the three a full Beast Wars makeover! Keep reading to see the mirrored images.

Looks like it's a day for product photo updates! Brinquedos Hobby has updated their Voyager Assortment product listing with new photos of Galvatron!
