TFW2005 has shared an exciting report today, revealing that Wal-Mart will be carrying a series of "Vintage" Beast Wars figures! Previously the "Vintage" line was reserved as a title for the G1 reissues put out in G1 styled packaging at Wal-Mart as exclusive items. If this line follows suit, could we be looking at re-releases of original Beast Wars figures in "vintage" Beast Wars packaging?
In a surprise afternoon reveal, Hasbro has opened up orders for a surprise Transmutate figure! Based on the character who appeared in the Beast Wars episode "Transmutate", the character made a huge impression on fans over the years even though she only appeared in one episode of the television show. This figure is a retool and redeco of Paleotrex featuring a new head and a deco based on her colors from the TV show, this is definitely one of the most unusual releases in Selects to date!
In a surprise reveal, BWTF sponsor BigBadToyStore has posted a listing for Transformers Minimates! Minimates are stylized action figures whose aesthetic calls back to "brick" style figures but takes the detailing up several notches to create something unique and fun. The first set features Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Shockwave and Starscream for $29.99 with a release date of August 2021. Check out the images and product descriptions below and
IDW Publishing has released its solicitation for titles coming out in May 2021. Check out the images and issue information below:

In 2019 Hasbro launched an ambitious project to crowd fund the biggest Transformers action figure ever (to be) made: Unicron! The HasLab project was backed and after some delay, we now know that Unicron will be shipping from Hasbro in March 2021! So if you backed this project (or purchased from a retailer) start clearing shelves and making room for this ginormous Dark God of the Transformers universe. Check out the text from the email sent to HasLab backers below along with a link to an awesome video featuring the manufacturing process.
Twenty five years ago "Beast Wars Transformers" came onto the scene and changed the "Transformers" world forever. Now IDW celebrates this milestone with a new "Beast Wars" comic book. Check out my review of the first issue!
