Transformers News and Reviews
Conventions Center
If you missed some or all of the SDCC 2014 Transformers news coverage from last week, we got you covered with our massive roundup of news and updates from the convention. Get the scoop on all the news, images, videos, panels, and more as it happenend right here in a single post that includes all our coverage from the show. Read on too see it all now.
Generations
Following on from the initial portion posted about a month ago, Seqart Organization wraps up its lengthy interview with writer James Roberts, touching particularly on building characters and relationship dynamics within the cast of More Than Meets The Eye. While not necessarily groundbreaking new information, it's a great insight to the process behind the fan-favorite series. Keep reading for an excerpt from the article and a link to the full interview!
Third Party
Along with Not-Especially-Ultra Magnus, Iron Factory has released images of colored samples of their figures based on Sixgun and Slammer at the Legends scale, which will complete the assortment of partner toys for Fall of Cybertron Metroplex along with that toy's included Scamper. I only count four total guns on Sixgun, making it truly NOT-Sixgun, but its ability to separate in to two large guns or become a tank gives it a somewhat versatile play pattern. Keep reading to see the photos.
Third Party
Iron Factory has thrown itself fully in to creating additional figures scaled to Generations Legends based on other classic characters. Newly revealed is one figure based on Ultra Magnus that transforms in to a full truck with trailer, though at this size it's more of an assault vehicle than car carrier. It's displayed in scale relative to several other figures, but should be around the same height as current Generations Legends for interactivity with Metroplex. Keep reading to see the images!

Age of Extinction
Finally (for now) Transformers Colombia presents us with found images of the later wave One Step Changers for Age of Extinction heavily populated by off-screen character toys. This assortment will feature Rollbar who takes heavy X-Brawn cues, Strafe, ROTF Megatron(?!), and a very G1 Prowl. Keep reading to see images of each figure in both modes and packaged!
Rescue Bots
Next on the list from Transformers Colombia, we have photos showing new figures Boulder and Chase in the Rescue Bots Rescan series. These smaller figures of fan-favorite Rescue Bots characters in new vehicle forms will be part of the third Rescan wave, and you can check out all of the mirrored stock photos of them below!
Universe
Transformers Colombia has unearthed a range of new Hasbro stock images today. First up they've brought us a batch of photos for Angry Birds Transformers including Telepod toys to load characters in to the mobile game app, and race course sets for non-mobile device play. A range of characters are advertised in this set of images, so keep reading to check out all of the photos!
Generation 1 Japan
Thanks to TAG Hobby we have a new New Convoy pens Image from Wonderfestival In Japan. Get a look at the mold that is being offered in G1, Nemesis and Ultra Magnus editions. These figures feature a surprsingly detailed robot mode for being the size of a pen, albeit a large one. Read on to see the figures for the full details on these toys.
Age of Extinction
Apparently it'll play in Peoria: Seibertron reports that Generations Lockdown has been sighted and purchased in an Illinois Target. For $9.96 no less! Keep reading for a mirrored image and a link to the original story, then go dig out that $5 giftcard you got for buying Silver Knight Prime and Fall of Cybertron Grimlock!
Generation 1 Japan
Planet Iacon has posted new scans showing off Masterpiece Star Saber along with his smaller component robot, Saber. His Brainmaster component, the Brain of Courage, is not shown, or at least not clearly visible at this resolution, but he does have an opening clear-plastic cockpit and there might be something in it...? Keep reading to see the scans and judge for yourself.
 
Generation 1
Once again, unreleased G2 figures are making their way to eBay. The Combat Hero Optimus Prime and Megatron are recolors of the super-articulated (for the time but still pretty darn good) 5" tall Hero Optimus Prime and Megatron figures with air-launching missiles. This blue color scheme was the inspiration for the G2 recolor of Laser Optimus Prime that appeared in the 2012 Ultimate Gift Set. Keep reading for photos, plus links to the auctions!
Third Party
Well, 18 months after posting their first teaser, we have out first look at TW-D01 (not Snarl, who looks finished) and TW-D02 (not Sludge, seen as a prototype) - In COMBINED MODE! Amazingly these combiners seem to be taking their positions on the combiner as legs just like the TFC Toys Star Rescue Team dinosaur combiner, but they are clearly a more G1 accurate homage. Their web site still says that the entire team is scheduled for 2014 release.
Generation 1
The Loyal Subjects have posted an image showing off Constructicon Scrapper from the upcoming third wave of their Transformers Action Vinyls. These little guys are about 3" tall and feature multiple points of articulation. Keep reading to see the photo!
Age of Extinction
Transformers 4: Lost Age is out in Japan, and TakaraTomy is supporting the movie with both toy commercials, and a themesong for the kids' line of figures: "Kakkoeasy!" It's one of those difficult to translate Japanese wordplays that combines the words "Kakkoii" ("handsome" or "cool-looking") and "Easy" (which is written "i-ji-" in Japanese.) Definitely a song for little kids, but one with the sinister potential to bore into your head and never leave. Keep reading to hear it for yourself and see the toy commericial too!
Generation 1
TRANSFORMERS GIGANTIC MEGAZARAK FIGURE - The first of two 22.8" tall non-transforming figures is Megazarak, also known as Scorponok. He is done in green, purple and orange and comes with a gun and a shield. He is listed at $569.99, $20 off the MSRP.
Age of Extinction
Autobase Aichi has posted a link to a YouTube video from the Japanese premiere events for Lost Age/Age of Extinction. It features both a crazy lightshow focused on the Optimus Prime and Bumblebee statues we've seen so much of since June, and Jack Reynor (Shane Dyson) and Nicola Peltz (Tessa Yeager) answering questions in English which were asked in Japanese and looking appropriately confused. Keep reading to see the video! UPDATE: Just added images from the event.
Third Party
Robot Kingdom has posted a video of X2Toys' upcoming Firing Pin figure (based on onetime Wreckers leader Impactor) which features a working springloaded pellet cannon, complete with loading system and hopper for semi-automatic fire. The hopper is detachable, and the loading system is disguised as one of Impactor's other weapons- simply fill it, slide it over the hopper, and the gun is loaded. Keep reading to see the video, plus renders and in-progress photos!
Age of Extinction
Planet Iacon has posted a collection of images of upcoming TakaraTomy releases, most of them in-package. Among the crowd are Transformers Expo exclusive Nemesis Prime, from the Lost Age/Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Optimus Prime mold. Also the TRU exclusive "Rusty" version of that mold, the Legends Commander Collection/Robot Masters reissues, and more! Keep reading to check it out!
