Seibertron's very own TRozok21 has helped us some more by offering close up shots of the new Toysrus Exclusive Clash of Transformers 3 step (hyperchange) redecos, which he had found yesterday.

He has also shared that these two are $27.99 cdn.

Here are the new pictures and we can make out some interesting details. It seems they are retools as well as redecos since Bumblebee has a facemask. They also come with exclusive weapons that were not included with the original releases. Dont bother looking anywhere else for more pics, they just don't exist. So thanks again TRozok21.

With Toysrus Exclusive 5 Step Megatronus recently found at retail, it was a matter of time before we had some in hand images of this figure. Griffin from Ozformers was the man for the job and he has a slew of in hand images showing how big this toy is. It appears to be Leader size just like the Mega One Step Optimus which interacts with minicons (they are pictured side by side below). He also gave a few tips after handling the toy:

It comes with two accessories - a spear and turret barrel (attaches to forearm).

Packaging shows the spear on the tank turret, but it looks too stupid up there... and even looks stupid on the treads, so I now prefer to not have it plugged into the vehicle mode at all.

If you get this, be careful with transforming it. There seems to be a lot of internal gears like the old Movie Auto-morph toys, and after an unusual loud cracking noise while transforming it, I'm now having trouble transforming it back to tank mode. :-(

Top 5 Best Shellformers Transformers Toys

Every two weeks, Seibertron.com brings you a Top 5 list related to all things Transformers written by me, your fellow editor. These are my opinions (just like movie or game reviews hosted by sites are still just the opinion of one person) so what matters most is what you guys think of the topic or list, and I hope to see your own lists or comments on omissions and ranking. Let's have fun! All previous lists can be found here.

Top 5 best Shellformers

Shellformers get a bad rap among the community due to the loads of panels which end up clumsily gathered around the robot mode. However, they can also make for very interesting and effective transformations by helping conceal the robot element. They help add the "disguise" part of "robots in disguise" and it is a treat to see the lengths designers will go to make the shell work in robot mode. The last list was about how they could go terribly wrong, so this week we look at how a good toy can come from this design approach.

5.Transformers Generations Sky-Byte

This toy has flaws, sure (the Hasbro deco doesn’t help), but no one complains about its shell. This is a shellformer done right by using the shell to help disguise the robot and enhance the alt mode while not distracting from the robot in robot mode. It gets the top 5 spot by being a great improvement in terms of the shell over its original toy. What used to look like an amazon canopy in the back is now reduced to two small wings that can be rearranged any way that suits you making it customizable kibble. And if you add that sweet Takara deco, then that's just the icing on the cake (chocolate icing with bits of Reese and Toblerone crumbled across it).

4. Transformers Dark of the Moon Sentinel Prime

Leader Sentinel Prime makes it on this list simply because we know how horribly wrong this could have gone if poorly executed. Unlike the voyager class figure, which relies on a fake kibble chest and does nothing with the shell, the Leader version owns up to his shellformer self and wears his shell with pride and dignity. Firstly, the front of the firetruck folds away inside his chest cavity and the window front contorts to create a stylish chest. The top of the firetruck splits into several panels to circle the figure and create an intergalactic cape which does not look like just the the roof of a firetruck. It adds to the complexity of the figure, and makes this one of the most arduous transformations you will ever undertake. That complex transformation shows how much the designers and engineers wanted to integrate the shell and use it to embellish the robot mode instead of detracting from it.

3. Transformers Beast Wars Neo Big Convoy

Probably one of the biggest example of a shellformer. Yet, you can’t help yourself but marvel at the awe that is Big Convoy. This is one of the most interesting forms Prime/Convoy has ever taken. The sculpt is filled to the brim with the most amount of minute details I have ever seen (to this day). The details are asymmetrical all over the place (chest, arms, thighs, shoulder-pad missile holes) yet it all looks uniform at the same time. And he is the first Convoy to ever have a removable matrix! This amazed fellow reviewer Ben Yee so much that he was a bit let down with Fire Convoy (another amazing toy) not having one. This is a fun toy to transform and despite all that kibble, he is super poseable. The fact that he is totally covered up enhances the transformation process by uncovering one of the most imposing robot modes from the beast era and the most detailed sculpt ever made. This is what shellformers are all about, having two incredible modes that look nothing alike and uncovering different colours and aesthetics without being lazy in design. This guy knows he is a shell former and does so with great pride. Most of the shell becomes a gigantic gun, freeing up the robot mode, and the rest is worn like the total Nordic badass he is.

Transformers News: Top 5 Best Shellformers Transformers Toys

2. Transformers Beast Wars Megatron and Transformers Classics Megatron

Both of these deserve the number two spot because they are there for the same reason. The use of the shell in both of these is genius. They both have great alt mode integration in the form of arms and feet that stick out but the shell surrounds the contortioned robot in a way to give the complete illusion that everything is cohesive and all part of the very same object. In both cases, you can’t tell where the shell starts and ends until further scrutiny. In both cases, the shell goes onto the robot’s back giving the mode a more regal appearance. These are shellformers done right. They also happen to both be Megatrons. Yessss

Transformers News: Top 5 Best Shellformers Transformers Toys

1. Transformers Prime: Robots In Disguise Vehicon

This is a shellformer, think about that for a second. Isn’t that pretty amazing? The shellformer without the shell gets the easy number 1 pick. No shell was ever managed and stored this effectively and I doubt we'll be seeing anything like this again for a long time.

Transformers News: Top 5 Best Shellformers Transformers Toys

Honourable mentions: I was hard pressed to not be able to include Beast Wars Cybershark as he is another great example of a shellformer done right, however it results in a restrictive alt mode and both Megatrons are similar toys but more accomplished. Also, I didn’t want to include more than one shark on this list.

So much TAV/RID toy news today.

With Phantomjaw (Takara Steeljaw redeco) just released in Japan, it is almost by tradition that Alfes has updated his blog with a new in hand gallery. This toy comes as part of the Takara Tomy’s TAV VS03 set : Phantomjaw vs Strongarm. These are supposed to be police themed rivals. This deco is exclusive to Takara and to this set (so far). There are comparison shots to the previous more show accurate deco, of which we have a gallery right here (Hasbro version). Anyone getting this set? Let us know!
