Introducing The TFormers Wave Tracker!
RAC - Monday, November 27, 2017

Today we're proud to be rolling out a new feature on TFormers! We call it the Wave Tracker, and it's designed to give you an at-a-glance indication of what the most current info about a given toy is. Are there pre-orders up yet for Power of the Primes Wave 2? What's the next Masterpiece figure being released? Any reviews or photo galleries of the newest TakaraTomy Legends figures out there? If we know, the Wave Tracker will tell you. Keep reading to learn more!

What It Is

The Wave Tracker is designed to keep tabs on the news cycle of Hasbro and TakaraTomy-released Transformers figures. There's a certain flow to Transformers news, from reveals to preorders to shipping/sighting in stores, to the inevitable photo galleries and reviews. We're collecting that info and putting it all in a single place so it's easy to look up a specific figure and know if you should be checking your preorders or local stores, or checking out the video reviews.

New to the sidebar is a set of quick status indicators for the five most recently updated waves, which you can click and get the full specifications of the wave as it's currently known, ranging from case breakdown to any available reviews or galleries of the figures within the wave. On top of which, you may start seeing updates like this on our social media from time to time as the statuses of waves are updated:

It's our goal for this to make it easier for you to stay informed about the progress of new toys and provide a quick way to look up exactly what's coming!

What It Does

At launch the Wave Tracker will focus on only official Transformers figures made by Hasbro or TakaraTomy. We feel this will allow us to reach the greatest cross section of both the fan community, as well as those with a much more casual interest or awareness in the brand while keeping the scope of the project manageable. There is a diverse and expansive range of first party and officially licensed merchandise like statuary, vinyl minifigures, soft goods, or Mr. Potato Heads wearing Optimus Prime's armor, without even touching on closely-related items like Diaclone Reboot, or the deep well of Unlicensed Third Party, so it's inevitable that something someone is passionate about won't be represented here. It's not our goal to exclude anyone, and over time we may be open to expanding coverage to other areas in the future. Right now this is the range of products we think will be the most useful to keep readers up-to-date on in the long run.

What's Next?

All of us here at TFormers have been putting a lot of work in this project behind the scenes. As far as we know there is not another Transformers resource out there like this, which makes the Wave Tracker very much an experiment in progress. We've done as much testing as we can so far, but we also designed and developed it and know how we expect it to work and be used. We're knee-deep in it, but you aren't. So if you encounter any bugs, if anything isn't clear, or you think something could work better, we want to hear about that, or any other feedback you have about the Wave Tracker. Ultimately we want this to be a useful resource for our readers, so please, join us on the forums and let us know what you think!

More Generations News
Been saving up for a Titan Class Trypticon? Well, there's good news! has reduced the price of the Titans Return figure to $100 as of this writing! That's a full third off of retail and one of the best prices we've seen to date. Keep reading for a link!
To follow up on what we previously reported, More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne returns to James Roberts' story, now known as Lost Light, with this week's issue, #13! Alex has shared his redesign for MTMTE cast member Red Alert, and it - and the explanation for the redesign - can be seen after the jump!
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.
