Fan2Fan, as always, have made some scans of a couple of Japanese magazines with Transformers toys!

The Masterpiece Starscream toy, with some modifications. The magazines provided some comparison pics!

Comparison Pics:1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

KISS Convoy pics: 1, 2 (pic of complete surboard, which forms 2 swords for Convoy), 3, 4, 5.

Information that came along with the pics:

"More pictures on Kiss-Play Convoy x Melissa, the report mentioned the figure would not have die-cast parts, however the rest will be the same concept as the Binaltech series. Some background on the Melissa character was also featured, stating her as a expert knife wielder. She has an outgoing and kind personality. Her father was a soldier and fought along with the Autobots, but Melissa hated her father for being devoted to his work and never spend time with her. Saved by Convoy when she was a little girl, Convoy made her understand that her father was fighting to protect all humankind, since then she has learnt to accept her father's duty and understand that the Autobot is their ally."

Protoype picturs of Kiss-Play Oshima Yuuki: 1 and 2

Fan2Fan also stated the following about this figure:

"Please note that Takara-Tomy has listed 2 releases on Kiss-Play Oshima Yuuki figure collection series.
- Kiss-Play Oshima Yuuki figure collection ATARI : releasing late Sep. Atari figure (featured above) + WST TF + Drama CD.
- Kiss-Play Oshima Yuuki figure collection 1: releasing mid Sep. Unknown figure + WST TF + Drama CD.
At this time, there are no pictures released on the collection 1, it is also possible that ATARI will eventually be the only release. However since Takara-Tomy is providing 2 listings at this time, we will take preorders for both of them. Please make sure you specified the one you wish to preorder to avoid reserving the wrong one."

And finally: The next issue of Figure Oh! will feature MP-04 Complete Generation One Convoy. Along with this came a silhouetted pic of this "new" Masterpiece Generation One Convoy.

There is indeed an opening casting call for the Trasformers film. The message said you need an ID and an entertainent work permit. They will be taking pitcure of you so you need to wear appropriate clothing for the scene you're aditioning for and that the director will view later.

They request you wear young looking cothes, casual, nothing too sexy.

So people who live near Burbank, take your chance to play a small role in this movie! Good luck!

New Information Regarding Transformers Classics and Titanium

Kickback of has recieved some new information on forthcoming Transformers Classics and Titanium releases. The source wishes to remain anonymous, but Kickback asures us this is 'the real deal'.

He writes:

Transformers Classics
- Cliffjumper
- Ramjet

I do not know their size. I do not know if Cliffjumper is a redeco or a repaint. Same goes for Ramjet. All I know is they are listed as upcoming products in the Classics line. No, nothing about a Skywarp or Thundercracker. Sorry

- Grimlock

I've seen a couple pictures. Color sheet that was shown a few weeks back looks pretty spot-on. Looks to be pretty posable, even in T-Rex form. Overall, if you can get past the different transformation (from what we've seen in pictures and the color sheet) from what we're used to, he should be a pretty good figure.

- Mirage

The best way to describe his robot mode is to have you think Energon Prowl, but not so kiddy-feeling. He does resemble G1 Mirage in vehicle mode, but he looks more like Energon Prowl in robot mode. Not sure on posability, picture was pretty small

- Jetfire

This figure could be the best figure in the line. If you enjoyed the G1 style for the jet mode, you're in luck - it's pretty much the same, even with the extra red armor/weaponry thingy whatever (I do not own a G1 Jetfire). In robot mode, he resembles mostly the G1 toy, but does have what feels like a G1 cartoon chest. Apparently he has two heads/faces? (like in War Within, a "battle mask" or whatever, so he has both cartoon and G1 toy faces/heads). Not entirely sure, couldn't tell in the picture, was actually told that.

- Mini-Cons

They're in Transformers Classics packaging. But I'm not sure if they are considered "Classics" figures, or if Hasbro is just continuing the Mini-Con releases but in Classics packaging. Most of everything coming out this fall is in the same Classics packaging, so it's hard to say. The name Nightscream was mentioned as one of the Mini-Cons. Something else about a tank, helicopter, and a boat? Again, I'm not sure, that was word of mouth, no pictures.

Transformers Titanium

The most notable figures coming out are in the 6" transformable portion of the line. I only recall a few of them and will have to double check on the rest, but here's what I got.

6" Transformable
- Optimus Primal
- Cheetor
- Ultra Magnus
- Someone from War Within? Checking...

Names listed, unsure of size
- Rodimus
- Galvatron
- Sunstreaker
- Predaking

I saw a picture of the 6" Scourge. He is G1. He does look just like the cartoon, colors and everything. And I have to agree with those who have mentioned they've seen it - he looks awesome.

That's all I have for today.


Transformers Attatix, Star Wars Transformers, and the end of Transformers Cybertron.

See kickbacks original thread for more information here at TFW2005.

Update from Kickback:

"I can't believe I forgot this - the new Titanium 6" War Within figure is The Fallen."

This update came from: this thread.
