Earlier today Hasbro held a Q&A with several online venues including Ben's World of Transformers. At the very end of this session it was revealed that there would be a fifth wave of "Kingdom", the final chapter in the War for Cybertron story. One of the figures in this line? Blaster! Fans have been wanting Soundwave's Autobot adversary for years now and this figure represents the first original sculpt for the character in decades. Check out the official product information and images (along with screen grabs from the session) below:
The folks over at IGN have revealed the very first official pics of two figures from the upcoming "Legacy" line of Transformers figures! This line is a follow up to the "War for Cybertron" trilogy in the "Generations" sub-line and appears to feature characters from different universes coming together. The two figures shown are Deluxe Class Autobot Skids and Voyager "Prime" Bulkhead!
The folks over at Tag Hobby we have our first look at a surprise release that is expected to be coming from Takara Tomy. This release features a redeco of the Kingdom Ultra Magnus' inner cab as Optimus Prime and an "anti-gravity base" display stand. So far none of my usual retailers have put this up for pre-order yet but once it's up I'll definitely post about it. For now, enjoy the images (mirrored from Tag Hobby).
Without any official announcement, Kingdom Wave 4 news has been trickling out over the past few days thanks to online listings by Amazon. You can pre-order this wave now on BigBadToyStore.
Hasbro Pulse held a Fan First Friday event today. During this live stream, three new Studio Series 1986 figures were revealed: Perceptor, Starscream and Sweep! Perceptor is an all new figure while Starscream is a redeco of the Earthrise Starscream figure with "Coronation" gear including a cape and throne (bumping him up to Leader Class). Sweep is of course, a redeco of Scourge. You can watch the stream and check out official product descriptions and images below. I have also linked to the BigBadToyStore and Entertainment Earth pages for those items.
Thanks to Hasbro, we now have a few official photos and a short video of the upcoming Buzzworth Bumblebee "Worlds Collide" 4-Pack featuring Blackarachnia (in her original Beast Wars toy colors), Bumblebee, Fangry and Nemesis Primal!

Thanks to listings on Amazon Japan, we now have our first look at the next two figures in the Premium Finish series. The next two will be Megatron from the 2007 live action Transformers film and Siege Ultra Magnus.

Megatron is priced on Amazon Japan at ¥6,160 (about $55.65 USD) while Ultra Magnus is priced at ¥8,917 (about $80.55). Both figures are due out in Japan on December 29, 2021.
