Studio Series is the topic of the evening, and in our last (for now) update on that front, we have stock images for Studio Series Thundercracker from usual suspect Weibo source tf-factory. Thundercracker is exclusive to Toys R Us in the US and is a redeco and minor retool of The Last Knight Voyager Nitro, featuring a new head. This leak gives us clearer looks at the vehicle and robot photos, plus a sample of the character art for the packaging. So far as we've heard, there's still just the one sighting of the toy in the wild so far. Click through to see the photos.
Amazon has listing pages (currently not available for order, though) for Lockdown and Jazz, from Studio Series Deluxe wave 2. With these comes new stock images showing toys in a final or near-final state reflecting actual plastic colors and complete production decos. Both look pretty nice in their respective metallic finishes, and Lockdown in particular looks like a considerable aesthetic step up from the previous Age of Extinction figure. Check out the new images below.
Thanks to Transformers Dioramas, we have some photos of the Studio Series lineup reveal event at ABRIN 2018 in Brazil. The Toy Fair-like show featured several pieces from the line, notably including a packaged sample of Blackout, plus Voyager Megatron which was posed next to other Voyagers, showing a signficant difference in size between Megatron and just about everyone else at that price point. One person was even seen handling one of the Grimlock samples, giving a general idea of the overall volume of that toy as well. We've mirrored many photos from the event which you can find below, plus a link back to the original post.
Chris Ryall has verified via his Twitter account today that he'll be leaving his position with IDW comics in the near future. This comes in advance of an official announcement from the company, and was in fact discovered even before Ryall himself could make a statement on the subject. Ryall has held the title of Chief Creative Officer for several years in addition to his run as Editor In Chief. This is the second significant change to have occurred relatively recently in IDW as Ted Adams changed roles within the company, with Greg Goldstein assuming Adams' former title.

Why didn't someone do this before? The EX04 Dinokong from Zeta is a Giant Combiner figure made up from five dinosaur robots in a somewhat darker gray and gold style color theme that really is more than meets the eyes. Included with this combiner set are 5 bladed weapons in red and black to offer another level of accenting. The Zeta pre-order is estimated to arrive July 2018 for a price of $349.99 USD. Read on to see the images and more details.
The usual Weibo leaker has posted official stock photography of Cyber Batallion Class Shockwave! Which we were not expecting to have an elaborate transformation, but... that head stick up there sure is something. Hasbro has been so successful in anthropomorphizing a simple shape with antennae and a yellow light that we can't not
read that as just a head sitting on top of a space jet. Keep reading for a closer look.
Loopaza Mega Store
has posted a new TakaraTomy image for the Studio Series
figures shipping July 2018! Included are Deluxes Jazz and Lockdown and Voyagers Megatron and Brawl. In a move destined to drive some collectors crazy - Takara has renumbered their releases, with Jazz being #9 instead of #10. Odds seem good that the TRU-exclusive Thundercracker
won't make it over to Japan. Keep reading to see the image!
Via Devyn Ballard on Facebook group Transformers Botposting, we have our first look in package at the Studio Series Thundercracker that just missed its debut at Toy Fair this year. Evidently actually found in a Toys R Us (we're not sure where specifically right now), we finally get to see what the retool of The Last Knight Nitro looks like. The back panel of the box shows a beautiful blue jet mode, meanwhile from the front we get a very good look at the new (still movie-style) head. No word at this time on if the Titan Master compatibility remains, but it would be surprising if it wasn't. Check out the mirrored photos below!

Via Hobby Search,
we add a pair of significant new photos to this morning's TakaraTomy Power of the Primes stock photo drop.
This time we get a good look at Abominus, as well as Elita-Infin1te. You can also make out the spare "Prime Armor" fists stuck on the back of Abominus' feet, and oh boy
is that color mismatch going to bother us forever. Keep reading to join us in being bothered!
<< Previous Page || Next Page >> Amazon Japan
has listed all of August's Power of the Primes
releases for Japan with new stock photos! Beyond decent galleries for each of the Terrorcons, there's also some photos of PP-27 Leader Class Optimal Optimus that confirm that he can indeed assume the Flight Mode of the original toy! Definitely reassuring given that even his package only shows a biped-to-biped transformation. The photos also give us a preview of September's TakaraTomy releases by revealing the identity of PP-28.
