The new galleries below feature Megahead Megatron, Noble Savage and Vehicon Jetstorm who are redecos of RID Megatron Megabolt, Beast Machines Beast Changer (aka Savage Noble) and Beast Machines Ultra Class Jetstorm.

It turns out there is not one but TWO Canon Transformers crossover figures. We saw Prime already and now we see Reflector. While Optimus Prime will be non exclusive (and can currently be preordered on Amazon Japan), Reflector is a TTMall exclusive. Fans in the west will still be able to get him through online collector stores but he will probably be more expensive than Prime. We'll know when the preorders come out soon. Canon Reflector comes with his own special accessories like a version of - Read More

Thanks to this Twitter post, we have news that the third wave of Transformers Studio Series core class figures have been found in the US. That includes Wheelie and Ratchet. If anyone is wondering, the only new core class figure in wave 2 was Exosuit Spike and in wave 4 we will have the DOTM Laserbeak (Bumblebee predeco toy) and SS86 Rumble (blue).

SS 86 Ironhide Review Provides Best Comparisons Yet

Posted 3 days ago by william-james88 - 53,507 views

We knew multiple different people got heir hands on Transformers Studio Series voyager Ironhide, so it was only a matter of time before a video review came along. And we have one now from Prime vs Prime giving us a good idea how different this release is to the previous attempt at a G1 Ironhide with Earthrise (ER) Ironhide. While he is more of deluxe sized, he is still taller than voyager Hot Rod, a toy Hasbro explicitly stated was voyager class due to parts count. And comparing this Ironhide - Read More

More Images of Studio Series 86 Voyager Ironhide Show us his Height

Posted 5 days ago by william-james88 - 60,341 views

More images of Transformers Studio Series 86 Ironhide were posted on the Cybertron 21 Facebook page. These give us our best look yet at the figure, especially in robot mode. We also get a sense of his height which does fit the G1 size charts. But remember, he will be sold as voyager class. The alt mode is quite beefy though, compared to deluxes and Hasbro already confirmed that the voyager class is also intended for smaller toys which have more parts. Also, there have been comments regarding - Read More

Posted 6 days ago by william-james88 - 62,379 views

Images of Transformers Studio Series 86 Ironhide's alt mode were posted on the Cybertron 21 Facebook page. We see the figures from many angles including the front back, side and even under where we can see the gun storage in van mode. This toy is not revealed by Hasbro yet, but it is an upcoming voyager class toy in the Studio Series line. And with us getting Ironhide, a voyager Ratchet will come eventually. Ironhide will not be an exclusive, but we do not know about the eventual Ratchet - Read More

August 10 is shaping up to be a big day for Transformers collectors. Not only will we get the full reveals for some of the upcoming Legacy toys like Blanker and Dead End but we will get reveals for toys Hasbro has not even hinted at. And those are a Revenge of the Fallen redeco of MPM Starscream as well as a brand new collaborative Transformers project where Optimus Prime turns into a new Canon camera. While the reveals are from Takara, the toys themselves are not necessarily Takara - Read More

New Image of Studio Series 86 Voyager Class Ironhide

Posted 8 days ago by william-james88 - 42,167 views

Fans still seem confused by this case of two different van molds appearing in the Studio Series 86 line at the same time. While the Studio Series 86 line will have both Ratchet AND Ironhide this year, they are not the same class, and are entirely different molds. Ratchet comes out in wave 3 of 2022's core class while Ironhide comes out in the final wave of 2022's voyagers. Neither are exclusives, they are both mainline toys in different classes. This means that we will eventually get a CORE - Read More

First images of Alt Modes for Legacy Point Blank (Blanker) and Dead End + Peacemaker

Posted 8 days ago by william-james88 - 40,547 views

Looks like Takara is revealing Legacy deluxe Class Dead End and Blanker on August 10th. That means they'll probably beat Hasbro to the punch for revealing alt modes and accessories. When it comes to Blanker (this is the Japanese name for Point Blank and it's what this release will be called) the accessory is pretty important since it's a Targetmaster called Peacemaker. We see Peacemaker in the Takara preview image below along with the alt mode. And we see Dead End's alt mode - Read More

Studio Series 86 Core Ratchet Comes with his Death Scene Backdrop

Posted 8 days ago by william-james88 - 36,441 views

This was bound to confuse fans. While the Studio Series 86 line will have both Ratchet AND Ironhide this year, they are not the same class, and are entirely different molds. The Ironhide we just showed you is a voyager class toy, while the upcoming Ratchet is a core class toy. There will probably be redecos later on but for now, the two autobots are in different classes. Regarding Ratchet, the toy is now out in Taiwan and has been bought at retail. This means we have a better look at the toy - Read More

Studio Series 86 Ironhide Seems to be a Completely New Mold

Posted 8 days ago by william-james88 - 42,341 views

Crazy to think that there was a time when there were no decent G1 style Ironhide molds outside of one convention exclusive redeco. But now, not only do we have a G1 mold with the Siege toy, plus a more G1 accurate G1 mold with the Earthrise retool we now have an EVEN MORE accurate G1 mold with the upcoming Studio Series 86 toy. You can see the first image of it below. It's a cropped out image of the robot mode but it gives us a good enough idea that the mold is new. So, if this is indeed the - Read More
