TakaraTomy Reveal New Transformers Fall of Cybertron TG-15 Autobot and TG-16 Decepticon Cassette 4-Packs
Jack - Monday, November 12, 2012
Thanks to news and images on the Cyber Gundam Blog we have word from TakaraTomy on new Transformers Fall of Cybertron Data Disk (Cassettes) sets. Soon as I saw the Tape Bots were back, I knew we would get all the classic G1 characters and here they are. Takara will offering the figures in 4-pags instead of two like Hasbro has chosen. The TG-15 Autobot set inlcudes Eject, Ramhorn, Rewind, and Sundor. The TG-16 Decepticon set will include of Frenzy (blue), Rat Bat, Ravage, and Rumble (red). Look for these guys to be priced at 2,980 Yen / $37 USD with a release in Japan set for April 27, 2013. Get a look at the images below for more information.
An official Combiner Wars Liokaiser came out as the last of the boxsets for that line last year, but it had a bit of reimagining and was only five members instead of six. And with no Unite Warriors version, a more accurate interpretation seemed unlikely. So one fan by the Twitter handle of @omochasoku02 decided to fill in that gap, and customized a full set, with Breastmaster partners, plus both Leozack and Jallguar who form the torso together, and even Deathcobra, the animation-only single-appearance extra member of the team. This is definitely worth a look, so check out the photos in the gallery below!
We'll be coming back to the SDCC exclusives shortly. But before that, I wanted to share the unboxing of Siege on Cybertron, the second Titans Return box set that we've all been eagerly anticipating. It just came in this week at BigBadToyStore, which when combined with the SDCC exclusives dropping made this a potentially very expensive week! Check out the unboxing video embedded below.
This week on RFC: The SDCC exclusives hit Hasbro Toy Shop. Did you get yours? We're guessing not. With little fanfare, The Last Knight comes home next month. Titans Returns Slugslinger has hit Australian retail, Metroplex is being reissued in Japan, Perfect Effect's Black Jinrai upgrade for the SDCC Primitive Skateboarding Prime looks phenomenal, and Deluxe Cogman looks AMAZING--let's hope we get it! All that and we ponder the deeper meanings of life and Masterpiece Targetmaster Hot Rod on this week's edition of Radio Free Cybertron!
THE RETURN OF GALVATRON THE BARBARIAN! Optimus Prime meets with Alpha Trion, the ancient sage, who reveals a tale of Cybertron's earliest days, when the original Thirteen Primes united the world. But even then, the warrior known as Galvatron was a wild card... shaping the future in unexpected ways.
