From UK based toy distributor A.B.Gee we have a few new pieces of stock photography to share for upcoming Titans Return toys. We're looking at Deluxe wave 2, including Wolfwire (Weirdwolf), Highbrow, Chromedome, and Mindwipe. We do find one overlooked detail revealed in these shots, which is Chromedome having tires cast in the same smokey translucent plastic as its canopy/windshield. These photos are a mix of packaged and loose images, not giving a full look at anyone, but we're hoping to have more to share soon. Click through for more!
Members of the TFND website have posted a tremendous number of photos of Titans Return Wave 1 from a hands-on event held recently. The Wave 1 Deluxes, Voyagers, Leaders, Legends, and Titan Master price points were all on display, as was Titan Class Fortress Maximus and the SDCC-exclusive Titan Wars set featuring Windblade, Brainstorm, and Sentinel Prime! Keep reading to see the mirrored gallery!
of the TFW2005 forums has posted a gallery of the upcoming Powermaster Optimus Prime! The Autobot Leader is an extensive remold of Generations Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus, now sporting a base mode and of course the all-important Headmasters-style Titan Master gimmick that will define the line. Keep reading for more info and mirrored photos!
Autobase Aichi's Facebook page has been updated to feature a series of photos of the Hero-X (formerly Million Publishing) Generations book mailaway set of Runamuck vs Dogfight. Branded as Transformers Adventure like the other Legends size class figures before them, these are recolors of Blackjack and the Viper retool of Powerglide.
Runamuck completes the pair started with general retail Runabout, while Digfight joins Override in representing the Triggerbot subgroup. We have the photos mirrored, so click through to take a look!
Before there was Transformers, there was Diaclone. And now Diaclone lives again in the form of the Diabattles V2 set, part of the Diaclone Reboot. Oscar Fung has shared a large number of photos on Facebook of this set. Primarily showing off the many, many ways the components can be combined as both robot and vehicular forms, there's a lot of play and display value in this set. There's also some close shots of the pilots, and a size comparison with a modern Transformers cousin. You can check out all of these photos below!
R-15 JAEGERTRON AND R-20 FACE KITS - Jaegertron comes with a trophy case that adds a lot of playability. It includes 5 faces of Feral Cons from dimension X as seen in MMC's comic story.
Trophy case can combine with Jaegertron's jet mode for a space cargo jet. The LED backlights the weapons in showcase mode, and acts as thrusters' glow effect in cargo mode.
And he sure got them! Hisashi Yuki has posted two new photos to Twitter this morning: First up is a Nosecone using all of the drills
, and then a look at Wandering Roller from UW06 Grand Galvatron fitted with a Nosecone drill, because why not? Keep reading to see for yourself!
Michael Bay posted a picture to Instagram today announcing that he is in Cuba and Transformers: The Last Knight
is underway! Besides the photo of a lime-green vintage Chevy in Bay's photo - hope we get a robot out of that!
- there's photos from a variety of other sources hitting as the shoot unfolds. Keep reading to see them!
Loopaza Mega Store has posted scans of the latest issue of Figure King Magazine to Facebook, and the most interesting part is a good look at all the new parts afforded to Unite Warriors Computron's most ambtious remold, Nosecone! Sporting a new head, treads, a drill, and what appears to be three
guns, Nosecone takes the best Deluxe mold in Combiner Wars and makes it (hopefully) even better. Keep reading to see all the scans!
In a few days, the TakaraTomy release of Robots In Disguise Deployers Crazybolt will be released in Japan! But Hisashi Yuki has posted that this one gave them some trouble. The translation offered by Twitter is a bit rough, but apparently coming up with a color plan that was accurate to the TV version was a challenge. I have to admit though, it looks good! Keep reading for the photo and the tweet.
We reported a while back on a project from Dr Wu, creating further Insecticons at the Legends Targetmaster partner scale to join your tiny Chop Shop. We now have what look to be early, 3D printed prototypes of these mini-figures, showing off their individual modes plus their capacity to be used as weapons by larger figures, though "weapon" and "mode" apply only in very loose degrees in each case. You can keep reading to check out all the photos.
Master Made has posted new pictures to their Weibo account showing color photos of their Apollo figure, the SD styled Omega Supreme following on from their Metroplex and Trypticon styled figures. These new photos show normal style robot hands under the claw and cannon parts, and a glowing face. No pictures of the alt mode are provided in this batch, but it is a good showing of what the robot has to offer in terms of features. Click through to check out all the photos!
We have a few new in hand photos of the Legends wave from Titans Return. While these are not especially an amazing revelation at the moment, these do give a first clear look at Stripes - at least a first since Botcon - and some new size comparisons with more recent toys.
Of note, Rewind and Wheelie seem distinctly shorter than the previous couple of years' Legends Class figures. And as a special find, it seems that the Masterpiece Daniel Witwicky minifigure manages a decent fit inside Wheelie's vehicle mode! You can see all of this in the full article below.
Artist Priscilla Tramontano, who is the guest artist on IDW's The Transformers
this month, has posted her retailer-incentive covers for both that book and Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye
! MTMTE gives us a nice relaxed look at Swerve in his bar, a far cry from the current dire straits the crew find themselves in. Meanwhile, Arcee is all business on the ex-RID cover, which is a perfect fit for the issue. Keep reading to see!
SteelPestsTeam SPT01 Steel Bug stands 6 tall and transforms into a battle tank. He is armed with two blasters and a shovel. This item is priced at $54.99 USD.
This is a different kind of offering from the usual Third Party fare with a somewhat humorous slant on the Transformers robots. The Steel Bug figure design is lots of fun with an engaging SD style robot sculpt, loads of weapons and a tough little tank mode.
Leaked this weekend in a fuzzy image of a hobby magazine page, we now have full photos from TakaraTomy themselves of Loud Pedal, the recolor of Masterpiece Tracks featuring the toy-based head previously seen only on a testshot.
Loud Pedal will be an exclusive at Tokyo Toy Show this summer, and is based on the Diaclone black version of Tracks. For those concerned about availability, it's worth noting last year's TTS exclusives were fairly readily available online for some time after the event.

Somebody actually bit on Myers' $100 AUD over retail markup, looks like! Twitter user @Kal_ElofKrypton has posted a series of images of Titan Class Fortress Maximus and is promising video soon. Among other things, you can see a comparison to the original Fortress Maximus' head, and to Titan Class Metroplex (who is actually taller by a shoulder-gun)! Keep reading to see.
Generation-Toy has posted new photos to Weibo! Showing off their upcoming unofficial Jazz figure, the figure's name is given as... GT-4 Jazz. That's unusual! The figure is an interesting color scheme, with a grayish silver that calls back to Jazz's movie incarnation and blue parts where his robot mode was traditionally black, which could be a callback to Marvel Comics or Fall of Cybertron
- or both! Keep reading to see the photos!
