Toy News: Photo Leak of "War for Cybertron: Siege" Hot Shot

Thanks to a user on imgur, fans now have a first look at what appears to be a "War for Cybertron: Siege" Hot Shot action figure! This figure is a redeco and retool of Siege Hound. It appears to be a homage to Cybertron Defense Hot Shot from Cybertron. Fans have speculated on this figure for a while now when they noticed that Hound's box art actually shows the Hot Shot head and not Hound's!

Back in June it was revealed that Takara Tomy would be releasing Lio Convoy as a Masterpiece figure! Originally featured in the "Beast Wars II" series in Japan, this character has received the homage treatment several times over the years, but this is the first time in a while he has received an original design/release all his own!

Toy News: Takara Tomy and Hasbro Release Unicron Transformation Video - UPDATED

IGN has released an exclusive video featuring Unicron's transformation! You may recall that Hasbro showed off the prototype in both modes at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, however due to the complexity of the figure (and some technical issues) the figure was transformed "behind the scenes" while we waited. This time we get to see the figure actually being transformed.

Toy News: Burger King Announces King Jr Meal Transformers Action Figures

This past week, the "Power of the Spark" line of Transformers began to hit stores. As part of this launch, Burger King has announced a King Jr Meal promotion featuring Transformers action figures based on the Cyberverse versions of Bumblebee, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream. Each figure features the character with their "Spark Armor" attached. There is no specific date cited on the Burger King page so I recommend starting to look for these now.
