Toy News: Comparison photo of "Legends" Ultra Magnus & TAV21

TF Yuki has opened up his toy box again and this time he's taken a pic of the upcoming "Legends" release of Ultra Magnus alongside his "Prime" counterpart and the recently released TAV21 Optimus Prime! The photo shows off some major color differences from the U.S. release including white weapons, more deco on the legs and Autobot symbols on the shoulders. I'm really excited about this release and I can't wait to see it in person!

Toy News: New photo of Japanese Constructicons reveals new accessories!

The one man marketing department at Takara TF Yuki has posted a new photo of the Japanese release of the Titan Class Devastator set. This time out the Constructicons are shown holding weapons based on those included with their G1 counterparts! There is no indication any release outside of Japan will have these weapons so this is an exciting development for fans who will be picking up this set!

Toy News: Clearer images of Legends Blackarachnia, Nightbird & Slipstream

The initial reveal of "Legends" Blackarachnia, Nightbird and Slipstream relied on some grainy pictures with huge "Do not copy" watermarks all over it. Now that several retailers have put up preorders for these figures (including BWTF sponsor Bigbadtoystore) clearer pictures of the figures have emerged! These are the same grey model photos from before, but a bit clearer. These all come directly from the e-Hobby web site.

New photos of the upcoming Takara Tomy "Legends" Ultra Magnus figure have been added to Amazon Japan! There are some significant deco changes between this version and its "Generations" counterpart. This includes red thighs, Autobot symbols on both shoulders and a bit of extra deco including silver on the rims of the wheels. The figure also includes Alpha Trion instead of Minimus Ambus, staying more true to the G1 cartoon.

Toy News: New "Transformers Legends" Leader Class Megatron photos released

Amazon Japan has released updated photos of "Legends" Leader Class Megatron. In an interesting reversal of usual practice the Takara colors are toned down from the Hasbro colors to better reflect his animated appearance instead of his G1 toy's deco. This offers a cool alternative for fans who want a more "cartoon accurate" Megatron!

Toy News: Who is included with Takara Tomy Legends Ultra Magnus?

A photo has surfaced online that appears to be our first look at a painted sample of the upcoming "Legends" Takara Tomy release of the Leader Class Ultra Magnus figure! The surprise is that unlike his US counterpart, the small figure included with Magnus will be Alpha Trion! This totally works since the "Minimus Ambus" figure does have a mustache/beard style face with ornate armor design. I'm personally very excited for this deco!
