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!
Thanks to a new listing on Takara Tomy Mall we now have a better look at Titan Class Black Zarak. When this figure was first revealed it was clear the images were basically saturated Photoshops. This time out we have actual images of the figure itself (or at the very least a test shot). Here is the product description from Takara Tomy Mall:
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).
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.
Adding to the recent bunch of new Cyberverse product releases, Best Buy has posted a listing for "Wheelgrim", a Combiner featuring Cyberverse Wheeljack and Grimlock. This is an interesting combination since in G1 cartoon lore Wheeljack was one of the characters who helped to build the Dinobots. Check out the official product description and
UPDATE: Hasbro has posted all new images of Victory Saber in beautiful color on their site. I have mirrored them in the gallery at the bottom of this news item!
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.
The fourth release in the "Golden Disk" series has been revealed! This time out it is the Predacon Terrorsaur! This power hungry character was one of the few to stand up to Megatron in the Beast Wars series before his unceremonious death in the second season. This version of the character imagines a different fate where the lava did not kill him but instead enhances his power!
The fourth wave of Kingdom Deluxe Class figures has been a bit of an oddity. Unlike past waves which received some level of promotion (even if it was just from retailer listings and newsletters) this wave was first hinted at back in July but to date there has been no official announcement. However, retailers have begun listing the wave for pre-orders.
File this under "news catch up". This past summer it was revealed that the Cyberverse series would be releasing an Ultra Class version of the Dinobot Sludge! I'm posting the product info and pics of this figure mostly for posterity here (and for those who may have missed the official news). Enjoy!
