Takara Tomy Mall have posted their retail listing for the Transformers Masterpiece MP-34S Shadow Panther figure that was recently announced. The listing provides all the details on the figure along with high resolution images, pricing, release date, and other details that we have mirrored for you below. Read on to see the translated text and images.
The Weibo page for Mech Planet has posted images of a new entry in their Hot Soldiers
line of Legends-scaled figures: a version of Hearts of Steel
Bumblebee! The hammer-wielding Bumblebee turns into a small steam locomotive which somehow manages to be incredibly cute. Keep reading to see the photos!
If the stock version of Grimlock, and by extension the torso mode of the Dinobot combiner Volcanicus aren't really doing it for you, Perfect Effect is again presenting an after market option to try to address that. PC-23 goes beyond PC-21's replacement hands and feet, giving new combiner body add-ons that will let the combined mode form in a slightly different way, as well as adding a huge sword that breaks down to be individual melee weapons for each Dinobot. And to top it off, it also includes replacement thigh and forearm pieces for Grimlock, making the robot taller - and probably facilitating some of the torso mode alterations. The kit is due in April.

Amazon Japan has posted stock photos for the majority of the June and July assortments of TakaraTomy's Power of The Primes releases. Firstly, this crushes a lot of last-gasp hopes from the fan community as we find that the Dinobots aren't being redirected to a revived Unite Warriors (instead being the majority of June's individual releases), and no Masterforce-based redeco of Darkwing and Dreadwind is forthcoming. We do get really good looks at a lot of what we're getting as wave 2, including our best look yet at the Alchemist Prime/Submarauder Prime Master. We've mirrored all the images below, click through to have a look!
Thanks to Justin geier who gave us the heads up on the in-hand images posted on Ebay of the Rodimus Unicronus In-Hand Images Power of The Primes Leader Class figure. This first wave of figures is barely out and we're already seeing the repaint hitting the shelves in Wichita, Kansas? Read on to see the in-hand images of Rodimus Unicronus below.
has just released the first images of MP-34S Shadow Panther! Based on Masterpiece Cheetor - just as the original Shadow Panther was a recolor of the original 1996 Deluxe Cheetor mold - Shadow Panther is shown with both the Cheetor and "Mutant Mask" faces on the MP figure. Keep reading for more details!
reports that MPM-3 Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee has been spotted on clearance at a Maple Grove, Minnesota ToysRUs store for $69.90! Still a significant chunk of change, but an improvement to be sure. TRU clearance is sometimes variable, but it still may be worth checking out your local branch. Keep reading for details!
of Being Awesome, ZoneBase,
and Radio Free Cybertron
has found a new seasonal Transformers product: Valentines Day cards that convert to a tiny thumb war arena complete with temporary thumb tattoos! These use the new "Evergreen" character designs that we're also seeing used for the new Cyberverse
animated series premiering much later this year. Keep reading to see!
Coming from Weibo, we have some grey prototype images showing MechPlanet's small-scale Optimus Prime-alike. HS02 seems to be called "Mini Lider" and while the photo quality for many of these isn't great, it seems to be a decent representation of the character design. The photos we have show an energon axe and rifle, plus flip up panels on the forearm in a similar manner to the pop-up communicator screen from the Masterpiece. The chest is also conspicuously hinged, which probably means it has a matrix and storage space for it. You can find all these photos mirrored below!
We still don't know when or how (c'mon, Toy Fair!) but it seems like it's happening: regular Weibo leaker tf-factory
has posted leaked artwork for Power of the Primes
Blast Off! It's a nice looking painting which, unsurprisingly, shows him off in his shuttle mode to emphasize the Unite Warriors
mold in use here. Also, we've got artwork for Studio Series
Optimus Prime and Starscream. Click through!
We recently saw an unofficial, non-transforming, high detail action figure representing Optimus Prime from Transformers Prime
by Iron Warrior. Iron Warrior has just shown off another upcoming figure of the same type, this one called "Strife 07" and based on Brawl from the 2007 Transformers movie. This figure likewise does not transform, but seems to focus on sculpt detail and articulation more. Unfortunately the provided photos don't represent the scale of the figure well, so it's unclear at this point whether Brawl will be appropriately large. You can check out the mirrored images below.
Valentines day is coming. Nothing says "I Love You" more than GIANT FRIGGING ROBOTS!

Just up on Machinima's Twitter feed is the latest poster for the conclusion of the cartoon this week - Megatronus lives up to his reputation in the finale of Transformers: Titans Return.
Hobbymizer Studio has posted a full gallery of images from the Hong Kong Toys And Games Fair 2018 press preview event for the Transformers MPM06 Ironhide & MPM05 Barricade action figure reaveals. Get a look at both of the new figures unveiled by Hasbro's Senior Brand Manager, Ashley Creedon, and Takara Tomy's General Manager, Mr. Yoshikazu. Check out the full image gallery with tranlated details below.
From Mastermind Creations, Collisus joins the Reformatted line. Standing about 8 inches in robot mode, Collisus features a unique paint application and is able to transform into a battle tank vehicle. This figure comes armed with a pair of cannon blasters that can be deployed in both robot and vehicle mode. The figure slated for release in April of 2019 for about $110 USD.
Zeta Toys still has a bit to offer us today. Direct from their Weibo we have two images of Armageddon, their unofficial Bruticus shown as a color testshot. The individual components are all represented in their respective colors, though the add-ons for the combined form look like they may still be works in progress - at least lacking some finishing paint details if not other color changes. The images themselves say that this is not necessarily a final deco for the assembled whole, but it certainly gets the idea across! Check out both photos mirrored below.
It's unofficial Aerialbot season, and just in we have a nice, detailed gallery of one of Zeta Toys' offerings for their Kronos project. "Fly Fire" is their take on Fireflight, or "Firefly" as the character was officially renamed for trademark purposes during Combiner Wars. The gallery shows off the figure quite well, with quite a range of articulation to be had and some nicely crisp sculpt work. We get a look at the arm mode too, including a close up of the construction of the combiner elbow. Click through for the gallery credit and Fly Fire images!
