I'll wait and see if Hasbro brings this over to the states. I have no need for the trailer, so hopefully he's Hot Rod without the trailer, or there's a remold in the future to give us Hot Rod.

Megatron is an amazing piece of figure engeenering, I won't deny that. All the flips, hinges, folds and hidden parts are astounding!!! Still it does come off flat and even worse frail. If that wasn't the case I never would have scored a bunch of broken ones to piece together ... read more

I agree, MP Megs is an astounding feat of engineering (c'mon, who'd have ever thought we'd get anything close to the toon model out of a realistic gun mode??!). A couple of touch ups and he looks even better...

Yeah i never opened my 20th DVD version of MP Prime (I DID buy it, but returned due to having MP-01 and 20th Anv '04 USA MP O.Prime) ... Does the dvd MP Prime have no chrome? Battledamage? I never even bothered to look at it when i bought it and returned it a few days later cuz i needed money. I... read more

MP Megatron is a fine toy, just he was a let down for most after the awesome MP's we had gotten before. I bought both the US and Takara first MP Prime. aside from minor cosmetics, there really is no difference. I actually like that 20th Aniversary TFTM edition that came out in 06 best though. To... read more

I don't know why people complain about MP Megatron; admittedly, mine only came out of the box (which still has its cellophane wrapping on it, albeit with an 'access hatch' sliced into the top end...) once to have the batteries removed. Stood it up on my desk and had a good look at it an... read more

MP Grimlock has die-cast (in limited form though, like on Megatron, Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker). Rodimus will have die-cast too, it's part of what defines the MP line. Convoy had more than the others only by design: the huge chunky lower legs that don't do much and the chest win... read more

More Generation 1 Japan News
For the past five years or so, TakaraTomy has partnered with the Super GT racing series to promote "Kids' Walk" events designed to boost interest in the sport. This year, the giveaway for children who tour the raceway and pits with their parents will receive this Team Mach GT-R Optimus Prime figure. While not technically the Mach 5 from Speed Racer/Mach Go Go Go!, it could be a pretty good substitute for you at QTransformers scale - if you can get a hold of one. Keep reading for more info!
Just in from Charahobby 2015 C3xHobby via Snakas are many new images of the new Takara Tomy Transformers products on display. Get a look at lots of Transformers including: QTransformers figures. United Devastator. Legends Blackarachnia, Nightbird, and Slipstream. Diaclone Reboot line with Diabattles and other figures being shown. MasterPiece MP-27 Ironhide, MP-25 Tracks and MP-26 Road Rage. Transformers Adventure TAV-21 Optimus Prime and other figures. Read on to see them all now.
The episode title translated pretty cleanly this time! ...though it's possible the better translation might've been Adults-Only. This week's QTransformers stars Decepticons Soundwave, Starscream, Shockwave, and of course Megatron, as they discuss Kiss Players. Luckily, the episode seems largely safe for work. Click through to see!
Ever wondered about the new kinds of Transformers introduced past 1986? Pretenders? Headmasters? Powermasters, or Godmasters as they're known in Japan? So does Lockdown. Drift helps lay out the post Season 3 Japanese TV series in this week's episode of QTransformers II, and while Lockdown is typically confused, Bumblebee seems to think it's all just one big bizarre adventure. Click through to see the episode (in Japanese without subtitles)!
Recently we pointed you to a stop motion review from the Japanese Youtube channel youheidx, and today we're happy to be able to show another of youhei's productions, this time featuring the Kabaya Seacon kits. The video shows an abbreviated assembly for each figure, giving individual overviews, and them demonstrates transformation and combining. It's probably the most fun look you'll get at this round of candy toy models, so definitely keep reading and take a look at the embedded video!
