News


Earlier tonight we shared with you some photos of an apparently early-release copy of Rodimus Unicronus, the new addition to Power of The Primes Leader class wave 2. But there's a bit of a discrepancy with it, as highlighted for us on Twitter by Barricade64. The official images we've seen of the toy since it was revealed have featured aspects of its deco and the slight remolding of the Rodimus Prime head that point to an intentional nod at the Shattered Glass continuity that was a recurring staple of Fun Publications' time producing licensed material for the brand. It seems that isn't quite so much the case anymore. Keep reading!





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.



It's been a contentious issue over the last couple of Prime Wars installments, and it's only getting more intense. We can see the appeal of stickers to solve budgetary problems, but we can also see the stickers peel - often before we've even bought the toy! In this editorial, RAC goes over the hows and whys of stickers and cites the remarkable consensus growing in a consensus-resistant collector community: Hasbro, Please Stop. Click through for thoughts on this sticky situation.



While still what we would consider early in its life cycle, it seems that a running change has already been carried out on the latest member of the generations Starscream family. Jason Rye reported this finding to us, which involves an alteration to how Starscream's wings/backpack connect to the body. The design tweak is said to improve how the jet mode comes together, and may have other benefits as well. You can see a side by side comparison of the two versions of Starscream, find out more detail, as well as get one of the batch codes identified as being associated with this running change below. Keep reading!





Twitter user @GanguStars has posted an image showing two of the shelf-warmingest Titans Return Deluxes - Scourge and Chromedome - marked down to $7! In the case of Scourge this is particularly great news since you can now build the Sweep army of your dreams. As for Chromedome... time to double-check for that running error with the TakaraTomy face again! Keep reading for photographic proof.



Almost a month to the day that Amazon posted listings for the 4.5" three-step Authentics figures, Hasbro has posted official photos and product listings for the 7 inch line on their website! Optimus and Bumblebee look extremely similar to the smaller figures but with extra joints, and here we have the Grimlock that was leaked a while back. Keep reading to see!



After a lot of crazy things happening all in a relatively short span of time, it seems like life is finally starting to settle down, with efforts to smooth tensions between Cybertron and Earth being foremost in Optimus Prime's mind. I'm sure nothing could possibly turn up to get in the way of that! "The Falling, Chapter 1: Surfeit of Primes" written by John Barber, art by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham. Click here to read the review!



Transformers Authentics, the "evergreen" style simple budget figures that seem to be taking after the Cyber Battalion series now have product listings on Hasbro's website. The first batch including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Megatron are not yet available for purchase from Hasbro Toy Shop, with their "Buy" buttons leading to error pages. But these listings do confirm the SRP, with prices listed at $4.99 each. The listings include the same images that we saw with the Amazon releases recently. Keep reading for links to the individual pages.



Blast Off has been leaked a couple of times, enough to be reasonably sure that it was something to actually exist in the upcoming product line. We have a bit more confirmation of that now through a listing on ACD Distribution. This doesn't give any new information, but it's joined by a second listing that is much more interesting for its implications. Listed additionally as a Generations Special Edition Deluxe is a Repugnus! Repugnus had been conspicuous as the only Monsterbot character that didn't end up making it to the Deluxe scale, but it seems that will finally be achieved, bringing the whole team together. Keep reading for some good old speculation!

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!


Just up on Machinimaā€¸'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.


Transformers artist Ken Christiansen has shared even more images of the original package art drawings. Following the previous looks at ... We have some new drawings of Hotspot, Blades and First Aid characters. Read on to see the design images, original box shots, and Ken's comments below.


Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB, we have a look at the Volcanicus combined figure showing us the full Power of the Prime Dinobot team in one. This looks like a really good fan shot, but it may be official. It is close enough that we are just glad to have the full look. Read on to see it mirrored below.


Thanks to artist Ken Christiansen we have a look at all the line art that was used for the package images of the Transformers Combiner Wars Sunticons team. Get a look at the original designs for Motormaster, Breakdown, Offroad, Dead End and Dragstrip in their entire original designs - before they were colored and cropped for the packaging. Read on to seem them all in the gallery below.


Coming our way via Phr0g we have some images of Flame Toys' officially licensed, high-end, non-transforming Drift figure, from their Kuro Kara Kuri lineup. These pictures show us the packaging, including the tray inside for the accessory loadout, a quick demo of all the lights turned on, and then a basic overview of posing and accessory options for the figure, including the fabric cloak. It's an excellent looking product - as one would hope for one with a price point this high: Sponsor BigBadToyStore currently has preorders available at $299.99(!) Keep reading to check out the photos.


While we wait on the new year, and on the second wave of Power of the Primes Deluxes to finish our Dinobot combiners, artist Marcelo Matere has posted the original pencils for Volcanicus to Twitter! The image does some great things with the design, making rounded parts of the wide-set torso into shoulders, which really does look good. Keep reading to see the image!
