Figureking Number 258 With Unicron, Omega Supreme, Mirage, 3A Blitzwing, 3A Optimus, MP Smokescreen

Motto: "It’s all the in the reflexes"
Weapon: Glass Gas Gun
Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath we have a head's up that the Loopaza Mega Store's Facebook page posted the latest scans of Figureking Magazine #258! That's right folks it's a Figure King Friday!

Included in this issue are some beautiful photos of the greyscale new fan backed Unicron! Unicron currently stands at 1,945 backers! This is oddly almost exactly on pace to hit 8,000 backers by August 31st, but this legendary figure of our beloved fandom needs your help! At $574.99 this is no easy feat, but this won't happen unless those fans who can put down their order, so don't wait!

You can put in for your Unicron crowdfunding order here.

TakaraTomy has opened for pre orders but these are NOT PART OF HASBRO'S CROWDFUNDING, unfortunately.

We have also received word that Robotkingdom was accepting pre-orders for this item but they have since closed the gates.

Also included in the pages about Unicron are some not too frequently seen images of his previous prototypes and retail releases throughout history.

We also see Omega Supreme from all new angles. It feels like if you haven't looked down on Omega Supreme from above when he's in base mode, you haven't fully grasped the awesomeness of this toy.

There's some additional shots of the 35th Anniversary Convoy two-pack with a G1 Optimus next to a repainted Studio Series Bumblebee Optimus, the 35th anniversary Gold Convoy fundraiser trophy, MP Smokescreen, and Siege Mirage.

Lastly towards the end are photos of the dynamic designs of two of the bots seen in last year's Transformers Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Blitzwing. These really give you great views of how well they captured the designs from the film.

As always enjoy the images and share your views with the Seibertron crew in the forums, and stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Figure King Magazine #265 Featuring Masterpiece Arcee and Tigatron

Postby D-Maximal_Primal » Thu Feb 27, 2020 6:45 pm

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Armor Axe
Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Cyberpath, we have news that Lapooza Mega Store has put up their scans of the regularly scheduled Figure King Magazine, and #265 features some of the new Takara products that have been shown off this month.

Most prominent among the scans are images of Masterpiece Tigatron and Arcee, who were just revealed a few weeks ago over in Japan. Tigatron features some images of him standing side by side with Dinobot and Cheetor, and showcasing some robot and beast mode poses that he is most known for from the Beast Wars cartoon. Big Cat and Little Cat have reunited once more!

Arcee also gets a page, showing off her visor that she once used in the Battle of Autobot City in the 1986 movie, including some art of the character mode, and showing off some of her poses.

On the same page as Arcee, we also get to see Studio Series Megatron, Scavenger, and a smaller image of Devastator, who was revealed at the same time as Arcee and Tigatron.

Check out the scans below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Goddammit. That Arcee have the ugliest backpack ever!
Rouge look way better than the official MP. Unfortunately, Rouge transform by exploding and hoping for the best.

Maybe one day we will have a clean looking Arcee that is fun to transform...


Also, still hoping that that G1 Unicron finally getting produced. I want to own that retro bot so bad!

I was wrong then when I wrote it must have been mistransformed. Turns out it was misdesigned.

So far, she's the best. Transformation don't look daunting like Rouge and she's at the right size. Plus her backpack is much better looking than the MP. However, I don't like the fact that you must change her hands for the fists to transform her and her chest hinge is pretty unsightly.

So Azalea is pretty damn close to perfection. but I'm not paying 100$+ for a "close enough" figure. Of course, final judgement about the official MP will be when YouTube reviewers finally have her in hands and show us how she properly work.

Let's hope it's the usual "can't transform for shayt" syndrome and the in hand images will be better. For now, all we can do is wait and see.

What do you expect you can't have a cartoon accurate robot turn into a cartoon accurate vehicle and not have a backpack
With all things considering she looks pretty good anyway
She has all the right proportions

The cartoon do have a backpack. But it's much more compact.
It could have been done by hiding some panels inside her legs and torso, like so many other figures did.

Motto: "It's unnerving and insulting when people in a toy-based fandom, whatever it is, make statements to the effect that general consumers and fans of lesser financial means should be deprived entirely of the ability to partake of the primary market."
Weapon: Galaxial Rocket Launcher
To be fair, A. Arcee's cartoon backpack is unrealistically compact since it's largely just her front fenders and B. her human-style legs offer less opportunity for stashing panels. But there was some possibility there... And they could have made her hips part of the car's aft like the Thrilling 30 toy did. The MP designers need to knock it the smeg off with the disappearing tires already.
WANT:
Energon Optimus firetruck drone; super mode hat
Ultra-class Optimus Primal missiles, left back panel, mutant mask
Combiner Wars Dead End or Offroad HFG, Breakdown HFG
Armada Thundercracker missile
Armada Optimus front left trailer strut, cheekguards
ROTF Jetfire "JTFR" Panels
Armada Downshift
RID Ultra Magnus missiles
Vector Prime Cyber Key
Armada Jolt, Thunderclash, Clench
RID Galvatron foot/dragon head, 1x launcher/sword hilt

Then it would be overly complicated to transform
These new MPs are complicated already
Her backpack in the cartoon sizeshifts to appear smaller
Which doesn't transition to toy very well

Obviously, I'm all for the middle ground. No need to be THAT compact, but it could be just a wee bit smaller and most importantly, look cleaner. Not like a scrapyard.
