Thanks to the fine folks over at the Planet Iacon Facebook page, we have scans for the latest Figure King magazine, number 255. We get 4 pages in this magazine, and the focus covers several recent reveals.

The first page covers Selects Star Convoy, which was recently put up for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse and TakaraTomy Mall. The page showcases him in the poses we have seen so far, showing off his new parts and chrome matrix.

Page 2 of the Transformers pages covers the recent Selects Smokescreen figure, the 3rd official reveal using the Siege Prowl mold, as well as the newly revealed Selects Turtler. Turtler is definitely heavily armed, and is a hopeful indication of a coming full King Poseidon.

Page 3 focuses in on the Cyberverse cartoon, and we get a look at some animation, some concept art, and what appears to be the recording studio for the series.

Page 4 also covers some Cyberverse figures, such as the Ultimate Optimus Prime, Megatron and Bumblebee; Ultra Starscream; Warrior Windblade; and one-step Optimus and Bumblebee. We also get a look at the upcoming Siege figures, including Springer, Red Alert, Sports Car Patrol, and Smashdown.

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

Despite the brand-unification mandate and Micro-mold-reuse robbing Hyperdrive of his pecs, it still looks kind of odd to see Takara release him in that color scheme. Gingham and especially Clipper would require some retooling to really do right, but it'll still be kind of a missed opportunity if there's no red and white repaint of that mold.

And considering the entire Seacon team has a total of 3 color schemes to milk from the retooled molds, it'd be far stranger if they didn't do 'em now! (God Neptune's Nautilator could just be redecoed into Gimlet, right?)

He has his pecs as both cars are retools, not mere redecos:

As for that redeco, we still have that 10-pack or otherwise designers who are fan boys of the obscure ;)

The Star Convoy looks great and I’m super excited for Snaptrap. The Seacons are my favourite combiner team. However it looks that Snaptrap is a retool of Hun-Gurr which sucks because it’s another reuse of the Silverbolt Mold. That being said though Silverbolt did have the best combiner torso, in my opinion.

It's not the Silverbolt mold. Hun-Gurrr is his own mold made from engineering that was merely inspired by that of the Silverbolt mold, a la G2 Smokescreen inspiring the transformations of Energon Starscream, 2010 Terradive, and Generations FOC Starscream.

Thanks to the Loopaza Mega Store Facebook page, we have our latest scans of the monthly Figure King Magazine, and this time we have issue #257.

The current Magazine features several of the upcoming Masterpiece figures, including MP-47 Hound showcasing all of his different accessories and features, such as his diving face cover, holographic Spike, and back missile launcher. We also get a nice feature of his interior, which seeing as how he is an open top Jeep, it is nice to see all the effort put into his visible interior.

We also get some further looks at MP-48 Lio Convoy, and while we don't get much more than what we had previously seen, we do get a better look at the Artemis figure that comes with him.

Also included are some further shots of the upcoming Studio Series figures, Siege Omega Supreme Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime, and Impactor, some Cyberverse guys, and MPM-8 Megatron.

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