Toy News: Robosen Optimus Prime Unboxing Photos

Back in April, Hasbro revealed the amazing Robosen Optimus Prime.  This electronic, auto-converting Optimus Prime can also walk, talk and battle Decepticons all via voice command!  These have begun to arrive for fans who pre-ordered months ago and mine just came in.  Check out some unboxing photos below showing the box contents.  I have also added a couple screen shots from the App you can use to control the figure (an alternative to using voice commands).  A review will come down the road but for now enjoy the pics!

You can pre-order this item using the links below (and help support BWTF as well!). The figure is due in December 2021.

The folks over at Tag Hobby we have our first look at a surprise release that is expected to be coming from Takara Tomy.

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).

Toy News: Possible Images of "Masterpiece" Trainbot Shouki

Images have appeared online via several Facebook groups showing off what appears to be a Masterpiece version of Shouki - the leader of the Trainbots from the "Headmasters" cartoon series.  Along with his fellow Trainbots, he could form part of the Combiner, Raiden.  This group of G1 toys was only released in Japan and thus far the entire group has not yet been updated outside of a Million Publishing exclusive of Shouki as a Classics Astrotrain redeco.
