Takara Tomy is keeping us busy this Friday morning, and the latest reveal to share is LG-19, a new release of the very popular Generations Springer mold. However, this new version replaces much of the yellow with green, especially on the chest, to evoke an appearance more similar to his animation model. Images of the toy, received via our site sponsors, are mirrored below.
Springer is expected to be released in February of 2016, and you can secure your preorders now at TF Source, Big Bad Toy Store, and Robot Kingdom. Reply to this news post to let your fellow Seibertronians know if you'll be adding this new variant to your Springer collection, and keep it locked here as we keep paddling down this morning's river of news!
The Takara Tomy Unite Warriors line adds its own deco of the Optimus Maximus - using the Prowl, Sunstreaker, Ironhide and Mirage molds, plus Optimus, of course - to its sequence of box set releases, with UW-05 Autobots as we know. But thanks to TFYuki, and Seibertronian Cyberpath, we have the first in-box picture of the big dude, and a concept sketch; check them out below!
Fellow Seibertronians xMXUx, Demonology7789 and Autobot Genocide, have some info our way concerning the upcoming release of Masterpiece Hot Rod (Hot Rodimus). We have a new photo courtesy of Kapow Toys on facebook as well as the listing for this toy on both Robot Kingdom (for 59.99$) and Anime Export (for 46.94$), both far more reasonable prices than previously announced.
These are the first prices actually based on the newly revealed MSRP of 8000 Yen and keep in mind that the Anime Export issue is the Japanese release without coin while the Robot Kingdom release is the Asia release with coin. This confirms that the figure is not exclusive in Japan. This figure is said to be released in February 2016. Below you will find a slew of images showcasing the alt mode as well as all the accessories Hot Rod comes with.
Thanks to site sponsors TF Source, Robot Kingdom, Big Bad Toy Store, and a whole bunch of accounts on Twitter reposting images like wildfire, we've got some excellent full color images of the upcoming MP-29 Shockwave.
