Catching some of the last strands of news from Wonderfest Summer 2016, we have another Takara Tomy Masterpiece display case from the event, to partner up with the full colour Cheetor (here) and updating by not that much what we saw back here: MP-31 Delta Magnus! Check out the images below, via Autobase Aichi, and let us know what you think of this Ultra Magnus reiteration.
Seibertronians, we have some literal big news tonight. Just after we premiered the new gallery for Prime1 Studio's G1-inspired Optimus Prime statue, it appears Sideshow and Prime1 are at it again. They've unveiled two completely new statues, one of the Decepticon leader himself, G1 Megatron, and one of everyone's favorite Munky not Trukk, Beast Wars Optimus Primal (seems like a familiar insect tagged along as well-and met an unfortunate end). We've obtained some images of both, along with Optimus and Nemesis Prime, although unfortunately, Primal's still in his Gray-scale prototype phase, but fear not! Megatron's viewable in all his colored glory! Check 'em out below!
The images also contain the upcoming figures Scorponok, Ratchet and Bisk.
Windblade and Nemesis Prime are the big reveals here since it was unknown how Takara would release the warrior Power Surge Optimus Prime mold. As it turns out, they will be releasing this warrior figure in Nemesis Prime colours, as they did with their release of the original Warrior Optimus mold. This means that, like the original mold, every main deco of this figure will be its own regional/retail exclusive: The Standard Optimus colours will be a Hasbro exclusive, the Nemesis Prime deco will be Takara Exclusive and the Clash of Transformers deco will be Toysrus exclusive. If anyone wants to know more about the Power Surge Warrior remold, feel free to check out this recent picture filled review.
Onto Windblade, the reason this toy's reveal was so anticipated was to compare it with the Hasbro release which seemed to be lacking paint applications to make it less red. The Takara one does indeed have black paint applications over the red plastic on the head (hair), hands, shoulder pads, sides and near the rotors in vehicle mode. Pictures of the Hasbro version have bee included for comparisons below. Let us know which of these you intend on picking up and if you will stick with the Hasbro version for any of these.
Citizens of Seibertron, we have even more SDCC footage for you, again from our reporter in the field, Seibertron. This time, it's of all the old and new Transformers: Robots in Disguise line that was on display this San Diego Comic Con, including the return of Starscream! Check it out below and, as always, keep it right here, on Seibertron.com for all of the latest and greatest Transformers news.
Dear Seibertronians, you may need to lower your brightness settings for what you are about to see, because it is glorious. We now have color images of Takara Masterpeice Cheetor, thanks to seibertronians steals_your_goats and MaverickPrime. Shown at the Wonderfest 2016 convention, this is the first time we've seen a full-color mock-up of MP Cheetor's robot mode. His beast mode was also on display, but it was unfortunately still in it's grey-scale prototype phase. Check out the photos below, credited to @52toys and @Chohenken!
Seibertronians, it seems Hasbro has finally released their MP-08 Bumblebee to US markets! Yes, the day has finally come, and he's available in the US through the Toys R Us website, along with some of their other SDCC "Exclusive" toys! The included description is the same from the Canadian release:
Transformers Masterpiece figures showcase the greatest Transformers characters in a high level of detail. This Masterpiece Bumblebee figure is inspired by the classic 1986 Transformers animated movie and depicts the Autobot scout in his G1 Volkswagen Beetle form. This ultra-premium, collectible figure is a must-have for any Transformers collection.
Before becoming a renowned warrior and trusted lieutenant to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee was a young scout, eager to prove himself in the eyes of his fellow Autobots. Despite his small stature, Bumblebee earned the respect and admiration of his comrades through acts of bravery that far exceeded his size. He was among the first Autobots to arrive on Earth and, thanks to his friendship with Spike Witwicky, played a crucial role in gaining humanity's trust.
This Masterpiece Bumblebee figure converts from robot mode to a licensed Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle vehicle mode. It comes with a converting Exosuit Spike Witwicky figure. Both are inspired by the classic 1986 Transformers animated film. The figure comes with 2 swappable faceplates (smiling and neutral), a blaster accessory, a removable spare tire cover, and an extra side mirror. MP-08.
