Coinciding with the launch of the preorder period, TakaraTomy Mall has added photos of the four Masterpiece cassette characters making up their combined MP-15/16-E set. Enemy, Wingthing, Stripes, and new mold Night Stalker are all on display in full color and deco, showing both robot modes and their individual cassette form decos. There's no clear indication of when preorders for the set will be closed, but the page now gives a delivery estimate of December for the set. You can find all the images in the gallery below!
Via Weibo, Uniquetoys has shared some new pictures of Ragnaros, the Masterpiece-size Combaticon project they're working on. Using color samples of the Swindle and Brawl analogues and grey prototypes for the other three, we get some looks at the assembled combined form of Ragnaros itself, and a team shot of the five robots together. Some aspects like the combiner chestplate look to be adopting cartoon traits, perhaps as a way to more fully embrace the current style of real Masterpieces which are embracing cartoon elements in their designs. You can find the whole set in the gallery below!
FansToys has shared new photos showing off a full color testshot of Koot, the unofficial Kup joining their lineup of Masterpiece-scale figures. While it is cautioned that details could still change before the final version of the figure, this seems to be giving a positive impression for the project, offering such things as opaque or transparent windshield options, an option face with a cigar, and a fairly good representation of the cartoon model in the face sculpting - though the cigar was always an IDW-specific trait. We've mirrored the photos, and you can find them all below.
With the fate of Earth at stake, new heroes must rise in an epic struggle to forge a future for all. This Premier Edition Voyager Class Transformers lineup showcases iconic characters from Transformers: The Last Knight. Voyager Class figures stand at a 6-inch-scale with movie-inspired detail, packaging, and weapon accessories that make them perfect for Transformers fans and collectors.
Transformers Generations Titans Return Voyager Class figures are 7-inch scale figures that come with a Titan Master figure. The Titan Master figure becomes the head of the Voyager Class figure.
TFW2005 user LEGOprime
has posted images from a recent visit to Universal Studios Hollywood showing new Transformers: The Last Knight
merchandise at the store there! There's a set of unarticulated figurines featuring Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, and Sqweeks, as well as a "Reveal Your Shield" T-shirt and display. Keep reading to see!
From Sunson Son
on Facebook, by way of TFW2005, we have photos of a life-sized, metal replica of the Autobot Matrix of Leadership as seen in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen!
The only other thing we currently know about this replica, which is being produced by a company known as Visual Time Collectibles, is that it will be limited to a run of 350 pieces. Which, given what high-end Transformers movie collectibles tend to run price-wise, is probably going to be plenty. Keep reading to see!
Simon Chan on Facebook has shared early images of the Transformers pages from Figure King Magazine issue 233. While nothing particularly new is on show, we do get to see the stock photos for the November Legends Series assortment, Masterpieces including MPM-3 Bumblebee, the Wonderfest exclusive Laserbeak (pink Bumblebee), and a full page on Calibur Optimus and Leader Megatron. We've mirrored the images below, click through to take a look!
Another piece of The Last Knight exclusive news tonight, as a further entry in the Reveal The Shield exclusive sub-branding has been discovered. UK retailer Argos has a listing page on their website for a mask assortment featuring reuses of Transformers Prime series Optimus and Bumblebee masks. In addition to the scrambled color blocks, the masks now have red lenses, which should permit them to work as wearable decoders for any of the Reveal The Shield products. These are expected to be available via Target stores in the US. Click through for stock images of the masks.
Thanks to tf-factory we have some official looks at the Premier Edition Cogman figure from Transformers The Last Knight. The violent comedian servant had been a fan favorite in the new movie and now we can have him in his toy form. Which, is has no where near the amazing detail of the figure in the movie, but the head looks pretty good. Check out the images in the gallery below.
Just like Sunstreaker, we've got a TakaraTomy site update for MP-12+, the cartoon deco rerelease of Masterpiece Sideswipe. The differences largely come down to replacing silver paint elements with white, though there may or may not be some minor mold changes to the face. In any case, this release also comes with all the existing piledriver attachments previously spread over several different retailer editions of the standard MP-12. You can find all 25 images in the gallery below!
From TakaraTomy's big website update today, we've got a big stack of official photos of Masterpiece Sunstreaker. Many are images that we've seen before in promoting the figure, but new to this update are a set of turnarounds that show the toy in robot mode and both configurations of its vehicle mode, giving a "360 view" of it that might offer some angles we haven't seen so far. All of the photos - there's over 30 of them - can be found in the gallery below!
Finally we round out the TakaraTomy Legends product updates with November's items. Currently the last set that's been solicited, though from Tokyo Toy Show reports, we have a good idea of some of what we can expect in December! This batch has Sixshot, Broadside with the other half of Repugnus, and Targetmasters Doublecross and Misfire. Doublecross notably comes with Haywire as a Targetmaster, making it just a bit more essential to current Blurr owners. Click through to view all of the images below!
TakaraTomy's big product page update carries on with the October product assortment! Featured in this batch are stock images for Kickback with Clouder, Brawn with Repugnus, and Triggerhappy with his Targetmaster partner. This gives us some of our best direct looks at Triggerhappy's Targetmaser so far, as well as a very clear look at the new face deco on the Headmaster component. You can find all of these photos in the gallery - click through to see them now!
TakaraTomy has posted pages for all the upcoming Legends Series toys from now through November. We're breaking them down by month, and up next is the September batch! This features the anticipated Kup and Hot Rod releases, plus the TakaraTomy version of the Sharkticon with a Sweep Titan Master for use with your surplus Scourge bodies - or anyone else of course. You can find the batch mirrored below - and keep watching for more of the TakaraTomy stock image dump!
TakaraTomy's website has been updated today with product pages for all of the upcoming Legends Series items through November. Starting off we've got stock images of Trypticon, representing the version that will be sold in Japan. I'll admit I can't immediately identify the differences to the US version, but now with high res stock images, it'll be easier to scrutinize for those tiny details. Find the images mirrored below, and stay tuned for lots more to come!
Twitter user @erect85 has gotten a Siege on Cybertron set - or at the least, a Tidal Wave from that set. And it seems he was inspired by the Broadside recolor, because not only did he show it off with its Micron Legend predecessor - whose colors it emulates rather well - but he also dreamed up some "combinations" between the two. It's likely most of these are the result of strategic balancing and camera angles, but they look cool just the same! You can find the whole lot in the gallery below.
Thanks to Qwan on Twitter, we've got some nice images to share from Titan Class Trypticon. Except it's not the dinosaur itself, but rather the Deluxe-ish Full Tilt that comes with it! Qwan has also posted some brief comments about the figure, starting with that the different kinds of plastic are very well color matched - which might be a positive or negative, depending how you feel about the figure being effectively one solid color. You can find the photos mirrored below along with quoted commentary. Keep reading!
