While the Generations line gets a lot of attention from the marketing perspective, other lines such as Cyberverse have been quietly releasing new toys in stores and online. Most recently the Cyberverse line has pivoted to a focus on the Dinobots (a move similarly done by other figures aimed at younger fans). Among these new Cyberverse toys are Combiners made up of two figures. Now Hasbro has posted these items on their web site giving us official photos and product descriptions for these new
Back in June, photos of Dinobot Adventures toys appeared online featuring redecos of Rescue Bots Dinobot-style figures as new versions of the classic Dinobots. Somewhere between June and now Hasbro has posted product listings for these figures to their web site including product descriptions. We also have the official name of this sub-line of figures: "Dinobot Strikers"! These figures are listed with an MSRP of $4.99 each.
Thanks to a heads up by a post on the Ozformers Facebook page, we now have official product images and descriptions for the Buzzworthy Bumblebee Crash Combiners. These images and product info come from K-Mart Australia. Interestingly enough, in the United States Target has yet to list these items even though they are available in stores now.

Now, likely for "Transformers Tuesday", Target has posted the listing for T-Wrecks on their site! According to the listing, those fans holding Target Red Cards will be able to order first. This "Red Card early acce
Takara Tomy has posted new listings on its web site for three of the upcoming Studio Series 1986 figures: Gnaw, Slug with Daniel Witwicky and Wreck-Gar. Gnaw is listed at 3520 Yen (about $32.13 USD), Slug at 7920 Yen (about $72.30 USD) and Wreck-Gar at 5500 Yen (about $50.21). Each figure is listed with a release date of November 2021. These are not the actual US prices of course, as generally Japanese prices for Transformers are higher than the prices of their US counterparts.
T-Wrecks was originally released as a redeco of Beast Wars Megatron as part of a Dinobots sub-line during the Beast Machines era. Over a decade later, history will be repeating itself as T-Wrecks will be released as part of Kingdom. The figure is of course going to be a redeco of Leader Class Megatron. Word around the web is that this figure will be a Target exclusive in the United States, however thanks to a report by Seibertron.com, we now know
Some time ago Hasbro Pulse put up limited pre-orders on the Takara Tomy redeco of Power of the Primes Volcanicus, the Combiner made up of the five Dinobots. This set included all five Dinobots with additional accessories for Volcanicus and Grimlock. Those pre-orders have been shipping and today I received mine! I hope to do a formal review at some point but for now I wanted to show off some images of these beautiful figures and their rich colors. These a
