Griffin, the owner of Australian fansite Ozformers, has attended Toyfair Australia 2015 and has posted a quick summary of what he saw and heard. Please keep in mind that the mention of release dates and exclusivity are most probably only in regards to Australian or Asian retail.

He wrote the following schedule for the Takara MP releases:

Gold bumblebeeJuly
Convoy reissue
Tracks (he states this is not MP25)
MP25 in Sept (he couldnt reveal the name of MP 25)
Two new "sports cars" for October and November

He then gives a breakdown of the exclusivity (at australian retail) for the platinum releases:

Myer: Conehead Seeker pack and YOTG pair

ToysRUs: Insecticon pack, Perceptor/Blaster, Trypticon, and Dinobots.

While this last news may be fun, it should be noted that this could be a reissue of the G1 deco AOE Dinobots that were released at Comiccon, similarly to how the FOC Bruticus issued at Comiccon was eventually released as a platinum set.

It was also mentioned that if Hasbro do a GEN Slingshot & Wildrider they would come out next year as Combiners are going to be at least two years. This is in line with the statement from Hasbro that only 16 Gen deluxes would be released in 2015.

Also, leader Starscream (redeco of Leader Thundercracker) would be part of wave 4.

The two Hasbro MP releases of this year would be MP Starscream (MP11) and MP Bluestreak, the later will be released in July.

Lastly, it was mentioned that Loyal Subjects wave 3 should be out in the next month (April).

The Australia Toy fair started March 3 and will end the 6th.

Seibertronians Downshift and Dead Metal have made us aware that there is more news and rumours coming from Toyfair HK, another show going on right now. An attendee summarized the transformer highlights in a post on actoys.net. It adds more detail to some of the recent rumours and gives more information regarding Generations Devastator, along with listing more G1 rereleases. As in all rumours, the statements below should be taken with a grain of salt and could easily be dispelled in the coming weeks or months. Afterall, there is yet to be an official announcement for most of these products. The original post is translated below by cybertron.ca user chroma 23.

美版:美复G1铁甲龙、三尖头套装、闪电和大火车套装、录音机和感知器套装(磁带好像是钢钎和犀牛,感知器 的肩炮有特殊用处类似能看幻灯片)

US G1 re-release tripticon, conheads set, blitzwing & astrotrain set, Perceptor & Blaster set: cassettes included looks like to be the animals, and the shoulder cannon on perceptor has some special purpose, rumored to be able to view slide shows

idw的大力神确实不错绝对泰坦级,因为是全年龄的所以单体的变形大家就别指望了,展示品都是手工未完成品 貌似肘关节不能动,组合方面下半年还有一个守护神,但只展示了热点感觉也一般。滑翔机还有一个紫色狂派重涂 不知道叫什么,同级别还有个战戟,还有几个没记住。坦克威确实不错还有个绿色。

IDW Devastator is indeed Titan class, because it's designed for all ages, do not expect much in terms of individual bot's transformations (complexity i presume). displayed toy looks like a WIP hand-made (or painted) prototype and joints do not seem to move (my guess it's like the combiner wars at SDCC where the joints are hot glued?). for combiner wars, the latter half of the year will feature defensor, but for now they only showed hotspot but doesn't look too interesting. powerglide will have a purple decepticon repaint but dunno what the new name will be. other combiner wars legend class (like powerglide) include warpath and a few others that i couldn't remember. there will be a green repaint for the tank (assuming he's referring to warpath)

日版:会有很多D级人物,都不是主线人物所以没细看,ps擎天柱和md老威不错但站立有些困难。组合方面增 加电镀和还原单体成员G1配色。

japan releases: will have alot of deluxe class characters, but they aren't main characters do i didnt pay attention. PSX prime and MD megs is not bad but do not seem to stand pretty well. bundles (my guess is JP releases of generations figures?) will have additional chrome and more G1 accurate colors


MP:今年预计就发5个,mp25和某宝放出的预定款一样,配件是洛尔和收音机,大家去看看52集就懂了, 只看了灰模貌似可动性又提高了不少。21G没有斯派克改成飞行背包了比较坑,但官方介绍会降低 售价。

MP: there will be 5 MPs this year. MP25 is the same as the rumors going around (tracks/ironhide). accessories include.....something (my guess will be Raoul and a radio (blaster) in reference to season 2 episode 36 "auto-bop"). they showed a gray prototype and looks posability is good. MP21G (G2 bee) will only include a jet pack replacing the exo-suit, but the price will be adjusted and reduced

It’s that time of year again, where Va’al enters the UK Toy Fair and reports back on all of the Tranformers goodness he can find. While there isn’t quite as much news out of the UK Toy Fair this year as last, there are still a few exciting products to tell you about.

From the Toy Fair 2015: Hasbro Press release:
Beginning in March, the newest animated series, TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise will begin a brand new chapter for the TRANSFORMERS brand with all new storytelling and gameplay. The new series, airing on Cartoon Network, is filled with humour, fun, adventure, and animated ina cooler, lighter, brighter style that kids are going to love.


Transformers: Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime One Step

This isn’t just a one-step changer, it’s a huge one-step changer. Standing at over 11 inches tall, this Optimus Prime figure converts from robot to truck mode and back again, in one motion. The transformation is simple; just pull the trailer apart to go from vehicle to robot, then push the chest and swing the cab down to convert back. In addition, with the Transformers: Robots in Disguise app downloaded to your mobile device, you can scan the shield to unlock a character, weapons, etc. The Optimus Prime One Step is expected to be available from Autumn 2015.

Transformers: Rescue Bots High Tide Rescue Rig

High Tide, a new Rescue Bot recruit in the Transformers: Rescue Bots programming, is introduced here in toy form. The High Tide Rescue Rig includes a mini-sub that converts automatically from vehicle mode to bot mode. High Tide can also command his Rescue Rig ship by placing the figure inside of the center hatch, then raising the levers to reveal him in the commander’s seat. To convert him to vehicle mode, press the levers down and twist the hull – now High Tide is converted to mini-sub mode. The playset also includes a crane with rescue equipment, front storage hatch, and capture cage with trap door. The Rescue Rig is compatible with the Rescue Bots Rescan figures and mini-figures to ignite the imagination.

Also spotted were the super Bumblebee one step changer (similar in size to Stomp & Chomp Grimlock), a Bumblebee blaster gun that looks like a car, and a Decepticon Hunter sword.
That’s all we’ve got for confirmed news for now, but read on for rumors and speculation from an anonymous, but reliable, source.

**The following is rumor and should not be considered speculation until officially confirmed.**

Rumor has it that besides the already much-speculated upcoming releases of Takara Masterpiece Tracks and Masterpiece Ironhide, that we could see Tank Megatron, Ratchet, Shockwave, Blitzwing, and Galvatron.

That’s it for now… but if more news breaks at the UK Toy Fair, you’ll read it here first!

A Transformers Generations Combiner Wars thread over on the /toy/ part of 4Chan has yielded an interesting banner image, allegedly from the upcoming UK Toy Fair. You can take a look for yourselves below, but what seems to be the biggest piece of news is a white redeco of the current combined mode for Ultra Prime/Optimus Prime, along with a Hot Rod-esque Legends car and Blackjack's swordhilt weapon. What do you make of it?

Good news for toy aficionados! Courtesy of TFW2005 user D-Drive, we have information of case breakdowns (not Breakdown) for as-of-yet seen Robots in Disguise (2015) products! Worth noting, though, is that according to the user, they are Canadian-based, so what we see tonight might be different than what we will see in the future. They are as follows:

TRANSFORMERS RID DECEPTICON HUNTER STAR WARSWORD BLASTER (4)
TRANSFORMERS RID NERF MEGA 1-STEP OPTIMUS PRIME (3)
TRANSFORMERS RID SUPER BUMBLEBEE (SFX)(2)
TRANSFORMERS RID MINICONS DEPLOYERS (2)
TRANSFORMERS RID MASKS ASST (6)
TRANSFORMERS RID BUMBLEBEE BLASTER (4)
TRANSFORMERS RID MINICONS (8)


Also, to lend credence to the ever-popular Generations: Combiner Wars Devastator rumor (now confirmed to be happening), D-Drive was also able to find out how many Devastators fans will be getting per case:

TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS DEVASTATOR (2)


2013's release of the behemoth Generations Metroplex also contained two per case, so this small update could also confirm that Devastator will be classified as a Titan-class figure.

What do you, dear readers, think of this small update? Excited for Devastator? Itching to know what these RiD'15 products look like? Share your thoughts in the Energon Pub, and join us in the month-long wait until Toy Fair 2015, where these products will more than likely get their spotlight.

Check out the image below, which appears to feature the original toy's feet over some new design sketches, and speculate away!

UPDATE: The account has also tweeted an image of the new figure's prototype feet, mirrored below.

So everyone, tomorrow at the Tomy booth at Tokyo Toy Show 2014 "Let's Say Go!"

ROM The Spaceknight Coming to the IDW Transformers Universe?

Remember ROM The Spaceknight? He was one the plethora of robot toys that were launched back in the early 80's, and Milton Bradley and Marvel had hoped to build a franchise around his cosmic adventures. Unfortunately for Milton Bradley the toy tanked, but the Marvel comic gained a following and ran for several years.

So why are we talking about him? Over the past year or so ROM has been showing up on the Transformers radar. This mysterious silver Transformers Bot Shot was among the new figures displayed one year ago at Toy Fair 2013.

Transformers News: ROM The Spaceknight Coming to the IDW Transformers Universe

We later discovered that the figure in question was indeed ROM The Spaceknight when that massive list of upcoming figures leaked out of Hasbro customer service.

TRA BOT SHOTS ROM THE SPACE KNIGHT A2587


Sadly, the Bot Shots line seems to be in limbo and ROM has yet to see a release. However, that may not be end of the line for our silver robotic friend. Hasbro quietly filed for three ROM The Spaceknight trademarks, as cataloged below by Lee Seitz on his blog EclecticLee:

So, there are currently three trademarks Hasbro has applied for. The first is for comic books and was granted in April 2013. They've already used the first of their five possible extensions to use it in commerce (i.e. publish a ROM comic book). Extensions are required every six months if Hasbro doesn't have proof of use. Five extensions give them three years to do so.

The second trademark is for "toy action figures and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms," which leads to the already existing rumor that Hasbro is going to make Rom part of the Transformers toy line. It, too, was granted in April 2013 and has had one extension filed against it.

The final trademark is for "entertainment services, namely an on-going animated television series for children." This one was only granted in June 2013 and, because I've gotten lazy, is new to me. It would seem to contradict Hasbro making Rom part of the Transformers, unless such a TV series would be a spin-off of Transformers: Prime or something. The first extension was just granted last month.


Bleeding Cool builds upon this by mentioning they've heard from a reliable comics source that IDW will be making a move on this property soon. Lots of potential within the Transformers universe for ROM. IDW's Transformers universe includes multiple robotic races, and let's not forget the upcoming BotCon theme features knights.

Seibertron.com user gavinfuzzy, in their online research, has come across an interesting listing from Brazilian site HobbyBrinquedos. The item appears to be a Hero Masher (figures with removable parts, that kids can mix and match to create different combinations) figure, with electronic features, of the upcoming Age of Extinction Grimlock! As much as the toy does not look like some of the artwork we've seen so far, and the product is not named, the colour scheme matches - but is that enough? Could it be one of the other Dinobots? Check out the image below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

UPDATE: There seems to be a whole range of Mashers planned, with additional figures fitting different aesthetics, from movieverse to IDW comics to G1 to Prime. Check out all the images below!

A couple of months ago a member dropped by our forums with a supposed leaked image of Lockdown's face from the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction film. At the time we had little to go in terms of verifying it's authenticity, but after the licensed product reveals that came out the UK Toy Fair we feel its safe to say this is indeed Lockdown! At this point we can confirm that the gray Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is Lockdown, and comparing the leaked image below to the Lockdown Mashem from the show, this does appear to be his face. As you can see he has a very humanoid face, maybe a little Destro-ish. Our staff member on the scene at the UK Toy Fair, Va'al, also managed to catch a full body glimpse of Lockdown on a mini ad for the Transformers Sparbag. Check him out below.

Do you remember Death's Head? The 30-foot tall robotic bounty hunter was created by Transformers godfather Simon Furman during his run in the Marvel UK series, and Geoff Senior's artistic touch. He was soon promoted to more than a one-off character and even got his own series in the late 80s, though reduced to a human-sized robot.

With Furman's blessing, writer Kieron Gillen brought the multi-dimensional mercenary back to Marvel comics, although always as a secondary character. Well, after showing up in the background of Marvel comics for the past year, Death's Head makes his full-on return in Gillen and Dale Eaglesham's latest Iron Man comic, issue 9, and he's in his full size!

Back in 2012, Seibertron.com reported from the Toy Fair that a new Marvel Universe figure of Death's Head had been announced by Hasbro - is this a good sign for its release?

Death's Head is Back, Full-Size!
