As Unite Warriors Bruticus is now released and available in Japan - hope you didn't have a preorder with a place that charges in yen! - it's time for TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki to focus on new things. Technobot-shaped things. As Yuki prepares to move the PR spotlight to Computron, Bruticus shares one last moment with the new Twitter star. ...gosh, they don't seem to like each other much. Keep reading to see the photo, mirrored here for your convenience!

Alfes2010 has been hard at work photographing this month's new released TakaraTomy Transformers toys, and has posted a great deal to Twitter. This batch focuses on the Unite Warriors Bruticus set, particularly giving good comparison images between the Unite Warriors and Hasbro versions of the figures, both individually and combined. These photos are spread over numerous tweets, so we've collected them all together for easy viewing. Keep reading to take a look and see the differences!
Alfes2010 has come through and provided lots of nice pictures showing off the just-released Hypersurge Optimus Prime toy from Transformers Adventure. Unlike the previous large Adventure Optimus, this mold is being shared in both TakaraTomy and Hasbro markets, albeit with different decos. But all the features remain the same, and this assortment of photos gives a good look at them. We've mirrored the numerous photos Alfes has tweeted today, so click through and take a look!
Amazon Japan seems to be the first to get to show off the full spread of photos for TakaraTomy's take on the Titan Class Fortress Maximus. The giant Legends entry, due this September, is finally seen in full color and deco - and revealing that it will apparently have some stickers as well! And for the first time we get to see the robot mode for this version of Cerebros which unsurprisingly does its best to take after the colors seen in The Headmasters

Thanks to Facebook user Arturo Milomir we have a scan of one of the pages from this month's Figure King Magazine featuring Masterpiece Inferno! Along with showing off the basics of the figure much as we've seen from its reveal at the toy shows, this gives an interesting new detail - where the ladder goes. It's quite an elegant bit of work, utilizing otherwise empty space inside the body to compress and store away the ladder completely. We've mirrored (and straightened out) the image of the magazine page, so keep reading and have a look!
Thanks to Hau Chi Lee on HK-TF, and the TFmizer group, we've got lots of photos from an event held in Hong Kong this week giving local fans a chance to get some hands on time with Titans Return toys. A packaged sample of San Diego Comic Con Fortress Maximus was also on hand, as well as the Titan Force set we've seen lots of already. Plus Legends wave 2 Rumble and Ravage were shown along with wave 1. Also present at this occasion was a Combiner Wars Computron boxset, allowing for some good close up images of the Hasbro version Technobots. Click through to take a look at a selection of event photos we've mirrored!
Thanks to TransformersCars who has posted a new image from the Detroit Transformers: The Last Knight location that is filming now.
The new image shows a trailer with what is unmistakable as the Transformers Autobot, Crosshairs, from the Dark of the Moon movie. Only this time he's rolling out as a 2016 Corvette Z06! Read on to see the image of Transformers: The Last Knight Crosshairs below.
Hasbro Inc. and Machinima co-hosted a panel during the Cannes Lions Festival offering Transformers fans a first glimpse of TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS, a new animated series debuting August 2nd on social entertainment platform go90 in the US, AMC Networks International Iberia in Spain and Portugal and in other territories to be announced at a later date. TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS, developed and produced by Machinima, marks the first time the iconic franchise has launched a digital-first series.
Takara will be offering Limited Edition Unicron With Kranix Transformers set this winter as a possible New Year's special. Based on the Armada Unicron mold, the Takara decorations appear to be somewhat metallic on this limited edition release.
This Unicron features a chest that opens to reveal a super cannon with blasting missile, and can trap Mini-con figures inside his leg (sold separately). Unicron also transforms into planet mode.
The figure set is listed for pre-order now at $169.99 USD with shipping slated for December 2016. Pre-order now at bigbadtoystore.com
Just in via Entertainment Weekly, we have out first looks at the Transformers: Combiner Wars catoon series that will be coming from Hasbro Studios & Machinima.
The new screen caps show us previews of the characters Windblade, Menasor, Starscream, and new series character Maxima, that is said to launch a "relude" on June 28th, 2016 on YouTube, Facebook, and go90 the new entertainment platform of four episodes that will explore Cybertron.
Following the new Squeeks image, we have another post from director Michael Bay's flickr account. This update gives us higher resolution look at the face of Megatron in much greater detail.
The fans are bit puzzled by this one since all we saw in the previous film was his head in the original movie form. This Megatron's look is quite different with a look somewhere between an elephant and Cthulhu with those odd fangs or tentacles.
Michael Bay has posted another image to flickr giving is a closer look at the just revealed Squeeks character. Following the preview from yesterday, this image shows us a close up look at the scooter-bot's face and all the mechanical workings there within.
There is growing speculation as to who and what role the previously unknown characters will fill. In past movies, Bay has enlisted the smaller robots as comic relief offering a more bombastic take on the more serious big-bots who are ready to roll out for battle.
Its already assumed he may have been built by Cade Yeager and may or may not have some connection to Isabella Moner's character - whoever that is going to be. Read on to see the new images of Transformers: The Last Knight Squeeks.
The Transformers Snapchat account has posted a preview of the Titans Return Fortress Maximus exclusive convention poster.
The poster is a wonderful illustrated images of the giant autobot base holding his Master Sword along with some words in Cybertronian below the Titans Return logo.
These posters are to be offered at the SDCC 2016 show in San Diego next month. Stay tuned to TFormers who will be there with all the news as it happens. Read on to see the poster now.
Samuel Pang on Facebook has decided to address a question likely on the minds of many collectors who've been after Headmaster-type figures over the last few years: Now that we have official versions in Titans Return, how will they compare to the unofficial effort up to now?
Well, at least in the case of the Fansproject Function X line, we have one answer. In these photos we can see Hardhead completing the group of core Autobot Headmasters... and Hardhead is about a head short. But stylistically he may not be far off. Click through to see the photos and decide for yourself!
A small update from TakaraTomy Mall tonight as we have some revised photos of the Lynxmaster Unite Warriors set. While largely the same style in presenting a basic overview of the involved toys in both modes, these photos show somewhat altered angles, as well as being processed with what we think is more natural lighting and colors that will probably be more representative of the actual produced deco of each figure.
We have the new shots mirrored below; for comparison, you can check out our original posting of the stock images here.
