The Transformers Collectors' Club has posted a round-up of all the exclusive figures available in the Subscription Service 3.0, and included a reminder of the closing time for new sign ups: October 2nd 2014. So check out the mock-ups in both modes, including a revised G2 Starscream, below, and head over to the Club's page to order them!
Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com member Powered Convoy, we've mirrored below The AllSpark's scans of the latest Figure King and Dengeki Hobby magazines. The two batches of images show off the upcoming Transformers Masterpiece figures by Takara Tomy, MP-23 Exhaust and MP-24 Star Saber, the Legends line, Cloud figures, Lost Age, the MegaDrive Megatron and more! Check them out below.
How many of you are still enjoying the ConstructBots line? Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has another review to keep you going, looking at Hound with his dino partner/armour Wideload - though he doesn't seem as positive this time round. Check it out below!
Sharing the same basic build as Lockdown, Hound in vehicle mode has more of a car look than I like and feel a military vehicle should have. I do like the build although I think younger hands will have a hard time snapping the pieces on and off the frame without stressing the plastic or pinching their fingers. Wide Load is missing something from making it an interesting partner and the armor mode is rather uninspired. I can recommend the kit only for a Constructbot die hard.
Seibertron.com is proud to present our two newest galleries: New Galleries: Manga Compilation Lucky Draw Black Tracks and Transformers Collection Tracks
First up, Manga Complilation Lucky Draw Black Tracks. This gorgeous redeco of the G1 favorite just stands out amongst the collection and draws your attention. (Guess that's why they call them Lucky Draws? )
And the second of our galleries is the original, the one and only, G1 Tracks. Flame hood deco and all, this classy blue Corvette turns into the classy Autobot with the voice so ritzy, you'd swear he was wearing an ascot!
You can see the full galleries for each figure by clicking their respective images below:
It's official, after nearly two decades, Disney is taking their toy license from Mattel and heading to their biggest rival, Hasbro. This is big news because it's the end of a rather lucrative partnership between arguably the largest multimedia juggernaut, and one of the biggest and longest running toy manufacturers in history. This will be a big win for Hasbro, however, because now Hasbro will produce toys for all of Disney's properties and acquired entities, including Marvel and Star Wars and now Frozen!
Hopefully this will lead to more collectibles such as Takara's Disney Label, where you get a bit of both worlds, all in a rather neat package. With this new partnership, it would be fair to assume that this will be just as lucrative for Hasbro, which in turn works for us, because the better Hasbro does, the better Transformers will do, the happier we'll be.
You can read the full article here at CNN Money, and when you're done reading, come back and leave your thoughts on this.
Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!
