Toy News: Official photos of "Encore" God Fire Convoy

In a surprise bit of news this past weekend, it was revealed by many outlets that Takara Tomy would be reissuing God Fire Convoy as part of their "Encore" collection. God Fire Convoy is the combination of Fire Convoy and God Magnus (aka "Robots in Disguise" Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus). Also included is the giant sword originally released in a two pack in Japan back in 2000. This "Super God Sword" is a modification of the weapon originally included with the Japanese versions of Fortress Maximus, making it a tempting accessory for fans.

Toy News: New photos of "Legends" God Ginrai

Earlier this month BWTF reported that Takara Tomy had announced a God Ginrai set to be released as a Takara Tomy exclusive. However at the time all the associated photos were either prototypes or stock photos of previous releases. Now thanks to Takara Tomy Mall we have brand new photos of the final products! These photos feature the translucent windows on Ginrai and Godbomber as well as the vacuum metallized silver on Godbomber.

They are also including exclusive Cab and Minerva Headmaster mini figures!

Photos: Updated photography added to "Car Robots" Wildride review

Over the years I've been trying to update the photography for some of my reviews. The latest to join this group of figures is Wildride from "Car Robots"! Over a decade ago "Transformers" came out of the "Beast" era and returned to vehicles. One of the key Cybertrons in this era was Wildride (known as X-Brawn outside Japan). Check out his review for updated photos!

*Note: Two of Wildride's wheels have cracked, an inevitable consequence of having rubber tires.
