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.

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!
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!
