(Figure King) magazine today that show off a couple interesting new products due for October: Transformers Adventure gets TAV15 Lockdown, a recolor of the Animated Deluxe figure, and TAV16 Bombshell, the recent Legends-class toy.

G2 Onslaught will be made as well. But how about Fire Convoy? Thunderclash? Cerebros/Fortress? Scorponok?

Genetic of TFND has come through again with a huge gallery of photos of Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition, the most heavily equipped and painted version of Transformers 1-3 Optimus Prime you will ever see.

TFND user GIKPA has posted a large gallery of high-quality images of Defensor! The complete
Defensor that is, with Groove as the chestplate. Where Blackjack completes Menasor's G1 look, Groove introduces a new element to Defensor, and it's going to fall down to individual taste whether or not that's a successful thing. Personally, I'm still looking forward to seeing what Takara does for their Unite Warriors version... keep reading to see the images!
It's been... what, maybe a couple weeks now? Which means it's time for another Japanese toy show. Today, courtesy of TAG Hobby, we've got new shots of Kotobukiya's upcoming D-Style model kits of Starscream, Skywarp, & Thundercracker, and they look pretty good! While Skywarp and Thundercracker are running in terror at the sight of Megatron, Starscream seems to have skipped straight to the dry heaves. Keep reading to see the images!
