Shockingly enough, all three of the Transformers exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop which debuted at San Diego Comic Con this summer are still available to purchase as of this writing.

So what made this year different? Keep reading!

SDCC 2015 was utterly Combinerific with lots and lots of combiners coming at us, it seems the exclusive Combiner Hunters trio set hardly got any love. We here at Tformers know how to treat the ladies, with not one. But, two revrews of the Combiner Hunters figures. Thanks to Shartimus Prime who's rolled out his own video and images. Get a look at these lovely ladies out of the box and transformed with all of the interesting tid-bits in-between. Check out the video review and images gallery below.

Just in from the official Transformers Expo,Taipei page on facebook, we have some shots from the event. What's most interesting is the reveal of some details about the Transformers MP Ironhide figure. What appears to be a presentation shows off the figure and its many accessories that will be included with it. We've also included some other shots from the event with Takara Tomy's Hisao Nishimoto, Transformers Robots in DIsguise, and More below.

Arcee is still the same Generations mold with all its flaws. Save one - this figure has new hands in order to heft the massive Combiner Slayer sword! How did it turn out, and in the end is the entire set worth it? RAC weighs in on that issue and more! Continue to the review!

It's Wonder Festival time again! If you're in Japan for Wonderfes on July 26th - isn't everybody? - you can stop by TakaraTomy's booth and experience the "Buildron Attack" simulation in 360-degree virtual reality! Using the Oculus Rift headset, viewers will be able to put themselves at ground zero of an attack by Devastator. Keep reading for mechanically-translated details and a link to the page on TakaraTomy's website!
