, we've got images of most if not all of Power of the Primes
! Among the highlights are new looks at Optimus and Rodimus Prime as well as Grimlock confronting a horde of Titans Return
Legends-class Gnaws. And also, Optimus Prime embraces his movie self (and the Prime Master/Titan Master/Matrix/Enigma cross-compatibility) and carries the Matrix of Faces. Keep reading to see the images, mirrored here for your convenience!
TFormers Sponsor Robotkingdom
has posted new images of the LG-EX God Ginrai set's packaging! This special edition set includes Cab and Minerva Headmasters, as well as a Super Ginrai with clear windows and Godbomber with a chrome chest. It should ship soon! Keep reading to see the images.
An unsourced anonymous image board post has provided something a bit interesting to look at: Power of The Primes Rodimus Prime broken down to its individual units showing a new perspective of how the full Leader Class toy comes together. As shown we can see the Hot Rod robot, plus the transformed state of the trailer that forms most of the Rodimus body, along with the Rodimus arms, which detach between forms. Of note which may not have been clear before, the Matrix chamber is located within the Rodimus Prime specific body portions rather than as part of Hot Rod directly. Keep reading to see the photo.
FansToys has shared some brand new photos of Rouge, their upcoming release based on Arcee at the Masterpiece scale. We now get to see Rouge in full color and alongside other unofficial season 3 character figures. The styling of the robot diverges in some minor respects from the media source material, but at the same time, this unofficial take on Arcee does have a structurally complete vehicle form. We've got the promo photos mirrored below, so click through and take a look!
Via one of the usual Weibo suspects, we have a first look at the front and back panels of what will in the near future be the packaging for Masterpiece Barricade, joining the Movie Masterpiece lineup as MPM-5. These images are likely taken from original print files, and as such represent the current stage of production this toy might be at. The images themselves only contain stock images the likes of which we've seen already, and no new information seems to be contained within. Check them out below!
has posted new Figure-Oh
) scans to Facebook! The MP-41 Dinobot hype continues - and continues to look largely deserved. The metallic blue on the figure is especially nice, and we get a larger copy of the pictures lining Dinobot up with the initial Maximal cast in both modes! Keep reading to see.
Japanese retailer HobbySearch
has posted in-package images of the impending November TakaraTomy Legends Series releases: Sixshot, Doublecross, Misfire, and Broadside are all due within the next week or so - and the two Deluxes from this assortment are receiving new Japan-exclusive Targetmaster partners! Keep reading for details.
Looks like the Autobot leader will be joining this year's Hallamark holiday tree ornaments offering this year. We knew about the Soundwave and Last Knight Hot Rod, but the addition of the Generation 1 styled Optimus Prime is a little bit of a surprise, literally. As this one seem to be scaled down a bit from the previous edition.
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!
Perfect Effect has revealed the prototype for their next Perfect Beast release. Mega Doragon is based on Transmetal 2 Megatron, reimagined in a more purpley-mechanical style than the cyborg-like original Beast Wars design. Mega Doragon is equal height to Beast Gorira, and taking the dragon wings in account, probably beats it for overall mass. We don't get a good direct look at the head, but from what's visible the face sculpt seems to capture Megatron pretty well, which will surely be an important consideration for potential buyers. We have the images mirrored below, click through and take a look!
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. Keep reading to find out more!

As Power of the Primes
begins to hit US stores, regular Weibo leaker supplies us (by way of Autobase Aichi) with a vision of the future: combination diagrams ranging from Waves 1-3! While there's not a lot of new information here - Starscream's combiner name is still not given, for example - there is an image showing how Blackwing's half of two-part combiner Dreadwing is formed. Keep reading to see!
Weibo user also shared images from Transformers Generations 2018
