The speed set was a straight cut Toysrus global exclusive, but things weren't so clear with the next boxset called Siege on Cybertron, which includes the Takara remold of PM OP, Tidal Wave from Broadside, Metalhawk from Triggerhappy, Pounce, and Titanmaster Thunderwing. We were told it was a BBTS exclusive at Toyfair but there has been no word on it since. We reached out to BBTS and they weren't even aware of this boxset. Well, now listings for the set have popped up on Canadian computer software/hardware sites all belonging to the same parent company. The prices vary from $130 CDN closer to the MSRP $150 price and these are all preorders with no date given for when they will show up in stock. While this sounds odd, these PC sites also have other Transformers on preorder, like Titan Class Tryipticon, so it's not completely out of the ordinary for them to stock this set too. What is odd is that since this set is exclusive to one retailer in the US, one would think that would be carried over to other countries where it would be exclusive to other retailers. Does this mean that this set will only be available from this parent company of online computer products? At least we know for sure that this will not be a BBTS exclusive worldwide and that there will be other ways of getting it for those interested. Thanks to Scotty P for letting us know of these listings.

We have seen Armor Knight Turbo Changer Hound with all the other Transformers: the Last Knight toys at Toyfair, but we had yet to get any official images. Well, thanks to a tip from Seibertronian Scotty P, we now have images from Toysrus France. It is an early listing and no stock is available yet. What is fun to see here is that this simplified Hound has a totally different transformation scheme than the other new simplified Hound molds for this line where instead of his missile racks becoming his arms, they become his legs. While Megatron is getting a lot of love with new molds in this film, it seems the runner up would be Hound.

Seibertronian RAR has pointed us toward a new listing on the Argos website for Transformers Rescue Bots Knight Watch Bumblebee! We previously saw this version of Bee at Toy Fair, but this is the first we've seen of a listing for the figure as well as stock photography! The description illustrates how Bumblebee can turn into a dragon, and his two Mini-con buddies can combine into his battle axe. The description also strangely mentions that, even though the figure is part of the Rescue Bots toy line, he was "inspired by the New Transformers Movie". Take that as you will, here's some of the stock photos for the figure, and you can click on either of them to be taken to the Argos listing!

The Robots in Disguise line is continuing strong in all its classes, including the one steps. Believe it or not, Hasbro is going to release a third mold for Strongarm in the one step class, meaning a completely new transformation. That means Strongarm has had a new one step mold for each year and subline. You can see the previous molds following the new one whos only image we have is in it's package. The 5 mm port on the top is interesting and hints at a possible interactivity with the new mini-cons coming out.

This new toy was found on Red Mercury, a Japanese import site (since several Japanese Transformers fans feel the need to import Hasbro products and these will cost them $22 each) and it also had a listing an image for another new one step, Heatseeker. This character is getting a lot of attention in the toyline with also getting a legion class toy. None of the other stunticons are getting this much attention.

Enjoy these two new in package images. You can see the robot mode as a render on the side.

The recent news of the series 2 Tiny Turbo Changers brought to light some older toys we had seen at Toy Fair. We are lucky here at Seibertron that the site owner had been so diligent with the images because these show without a doubt that it is Hot Rod we are getting, since we see his alt mode clearly on the show floor. We also see Cogman's alt mode and Sqweek's alt mode, which is great since his Turbo Changer figure looked like it wouldn't transform.

So without further ado, here are the robot modes for the figures followed by images of them on the show floor so you can now mix and match them to get a more rounded look at the figures in both modes and confirm who they are.

In Day 3 of Reveald Your Shield Week, Hasbro's promise of revealing a new Barricade figure is kept where they reveal Deluxe Barricade for the first time ever.
Yes, this is the very same figure already found in stores and that we have already seen for months now. But since this figure was absent from Toyfair with 0 stock images given by Hasbro proper to the media, this is their official reveal fo the figure (even if we saw him in yesterday's stop motion video).

Enjoy the video below of Isabella Moner showing us this "new" figure and remember to let Hasbro know who you allign with.

List of All Mainline Premier Edition Toys for Transformers: The Last Knight Confirmed to Come Out

With the sad news that the would be reveal of Hot Rod and Onslaught toys turning out to be fake, people have been wondering what exactly is coming out in terms of Deluxes, Voyagers and Leaders (the three classes making up the Premier Edition line). Is there space left for these yet to be revealed characters? Well, we have been given from the very beginning a comprehensive list of the 3 waves of Deluxes and Voyagers coming out for the Transformers: The Last Knigh toyline. The same list has been confirmed from multiple sources, bu the problem was that everything was codenamed. After New York Toy Fair and several premature Amazon listings, we have been able to piece out exactly which characters are coming out and in what classes. As it turns out, there is only one yet to be revealed deluxe toy left out of the list given to us earlier this year.

Of course, this also shows that Deluxe Megatron, Voyager Nitro and others are not part of the mainline and that may be where Hot Rod and other yet to be revealed characters may end up. Still, for those wondering, here is what the toyline looks like for now:


Deluxe Class:

Wave 1:
Berserker
Slash
Barricade
Bumblebee (AOE mold)

Wave 2:
Drift
Sqweeks
Steelbane
Slug

Wave 3:
New Bumblebee
Crosshairs
Strafe
Yet to be revealed character


Voyager Class:

Wave 1:
Optimus
Grimlock

Wave 2:
Hound
Megatron

Wave 3:
Scorn
Bumblebee


Leader Class

Wave 1:
Optimus
Megatron

Wave 2:
Dragonstorm


There may be an additional leader figure but there is no codename or placeholder for it.

Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron - A Doubter Turned Believer's Review

With all the differing opinions on the new Masterpiece Megatron ranging from a perfection to yet another waste of plastic and sliver of die-cast, along with the concern for breakage and paint chipping, it certainly can prove difficult for someone to actually make up their minds about buying Megatron now that is his widely in stock and shipping. Well, we bring to you today a Seibertronian review of MP-36 Megatron, written by our own Ironhidensh, that may be able to help some of you figure that out once and for all.

Now for those of you who may know, Ironhidensh has not been a big fan of the figure based on pictures and reviews and reports, but still ended up one as a gift. And based on his review, it seems it became the gift that has kept on giving. Read up below as Ironhidensh takes us through is experiences with the mold and shares with us his thoughts on the complaints of paint chipping, parts count, and breakage issues.

Was this review that made you say "I would have waited an eternity for this!" or did it only help convince you that this figure is nothing more than heroic nonsense? Check out the review, and let us know if this help sway your mind in an way!

Ironhidensh wrote:Okay, so as promised, whether you want them or not, here are my thoughts on MP-36 Megatron, enjoy! Also, I will be comparing 36 very heavily to Maketoys Despotron, my current Masterpiece style Megatron. A word of transparency before we go further. Up until getting 36 in hand, I have not been a huge fan, and have in fact been a fairly vocal critic. That said, I still feel I can be pretty objective in this. While I might like other figures better, I can step back, and still see what is good in the figure at hand. Remember as well, liking one thing more, doesn’t make the other thing bad.

Also, I can admit when I’m wrong.

Mistake me not, 36 has his flaws, and we will talk about them, but I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t really starting to like this figure. He was a gift, so I’m stuck with him either way, but he is slowly winning me over. I still love Despotron, but 36 is no slouch. So, lets get to it, shall we?

Lets go over the two glaring issues that keep cropping up first: paint chips and breakage. As I said in an above post, the paint chipping is bad. Like, really bad. I am hereby listing it as the number one flaw on this toy. Out of the box, he had a nick on his leg, and a couple around the left shoulder inner workings. Just posing him in a couple of different poses, he acquired a couple more. Once I got around to transforming him, well, yeah. I’m no newb to transformers. I understand that some paint chipping will occur. Over time. After many transformations. This is happening, literally, out of the box. There is no way around it, if you buy this figure, and take him out of package, you will get paint chips. Anyone who says different is either straight up lying, or simply refusing to see it.

As for breakage, I’m going to drop all cases of that on user error. I’ve gone through the transformation several times now, and not one case of breakage. No, its not as sturdy as a mainline figure, but its no piece of glass either. Yes, many parts are small, but as long as you take it easy, you can avoid breaking parts. Speaking of the transformation itself, it is NOT as bad as has been made out. Sure, its involved, but I’ve already got it down. Use the instructions the first time, or at least watch one of the many youtube videos, and you will be fine. I didn’t even need to do that hip adjustment thing.

Now, on that note, I did have one issue that needed some “modification”. The part that his gun barrel folds down on had some raised ridges molded on. I assume it is too provide friction to help hold the barrel in place. These ridges stuck out too far and completely prevented the movement of the barrel. I had to take an knife and shave them down a bit.

Transformers News: Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron - A Doubter Turned Believer's Review

Other than that, I have had zero issues with breakage, and I caught that before breakage occurred. His joints are all nice and tight, but not too tight. The ratchets feel just right. He can really hold some dynamic poses.

So, on to some fun stuff. Any review has to have some box pictures. Being a starndard Takara Masterpiece, the box is nothing that we haven’t seen before.

36 does one thing very well, one thing I don’t think any other version of Megatron has captured quite so well: his lower chest.

Transformers News: Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron - A Doubter Turned Believer's Review

Sadly, this picture also shows one of his flaws, the infamous “robovagina”. The waist piece is functional, but just not pretty. That chest though, it is amazing, and one of my favorite parts of this figure.

As far as accessories go, 36 comes with many. This is one of the areas Despotron fails in, he came with only a couple of faces and the energy mace. The accessories have already been touched on many times by others, so I’ll just talk about my favorites: the optional faces. First pic are what comes with 36, second pic are what comes with Despotron.

Transformers News: Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron - A Doubter Turned Believer's Review

Personally, Despotron offers the best facial expression with his laughing face, but the ones offered by Takara are great as well. I really love this gimmick. It’s a great and simple way to bring a little fun and variety to your collection display. I’m also a huge fan of the laser sword that 36 comes with. I must also mention that the energy mace on 36 not only comes with a standard chain, but a posable one as well. You can really create some dynamic battle scenes with that. I kinda wish I had taken some pics like that. Maybe next time.

Another thing that must be mentioned is the “mass shifting” this figure does. Obviously, I don’t mean it can shrink, but it does do an incredible job of taking a rather large robot and shrinking it to a not to far off from real life pistol. Seriously, Takara did an amazing job at compacting parts, and then expanding them out again. I made a lot of noise about how many panel lines 36 had, and how messy his back is, but once you’ve transformed him, you get it. It takes a lot of moving parts to do what they did. It still might be a little too much, but respect where respect is due.

The next few pictures will be side by side comparison of 36 and Despotron. I’ve chosen Despotron for the comparison, because obviously, I have him. I also had X-Transbots Apollyon, but sold him for Despotron. Apollyon was a great figure, but I feel 36 is a better toy. We will talk more after.

As you can see, while 36 is of a very similar size to Despotron, he transforms into a smaller gun. I find that impressive, but not necessary. 36 could do with a bit of a similar transformation. Despotron is challenging, but doesn’t take to terribly long. 36 is gonna take you a few minutes. Then again, it isn’t the way too simple transformation that severely hurt MP Shockwave and MP Inferno, so you take what you can. 36 does leave you feeling satisfied when you are done, so we will go on and count it as a win.

Despotron takes a more comic (specifically Dreamwave era) inspired look, while 36 really nails the cartoon look. This is a negative for me, but that is a matter of personal taste. Also, it could be worse. Inferno just looks silly in its cartoon accuracy, while 36 still looks badass. He looks like a Masterpiece.

In closing, while 36 is growing on me greatly, and may end up replacing Despotron (I’m not ready to let go yet, but its hard to justify having two MP style Megatrons), he has one nagging issue that simply cannot be let go of: the paint chipping. Some people maybe able to look past this, but folks, on a $200 toy, this is simply not acceptable. There is no excuse, and is a huge fail on the part of Takara. I won’t say don’t get this figure because of it, but buyer beware. Like I said earlier, if you take 36 out of the clamshell, you WILL have paint chips.

Something else on 36 that I really enjoy is his fusion cannon. The barrel is adjustable for cannon and scope modes. Its a small thing that really stands out as that extra little bit that we should expect from a Masterpiece toy. Very nifty.

This went on for a bit, sorry for that, but I hope some of you enjoy it. Let us end in true Ironhidensh tradition, with a dash pic.
