It’s that time of year again, where Va’al enters the UK Toy Fair and reports back on all of the Tranformers goodness he can find. While there isn’t quite as much news out of the UK Toy Fair this year as last, there are still a few exciting products to tell you about.

From the Toy Fair 2015: Hasbro Press release:
Beginning in March, the newest animated series, TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise will begin a brand new chapter for the TRANSFORMERS brand with all new storytelling and gameplay. The new series, airing on Cartoon Network, is filled with humour, fun, adventure, and animated ina cooler, lighter, brighter style that kids are going to love.


Transformers: Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime One Step

This isn’t just a one-step changer, it’s a huge one-step changer. Standing at over 11 inches tall, this Optimus Prime figure converts from robot to truck mode and back again, in one motion. The transformation is simple; just pull the trailer apart to go from vehicle to robot, then push the chest and swing the cab down to convert back. In addition, with the Transformers: Robots in Disguise app downloaded to your mobile device, you can scan the shield to unlock a character, weapons, etc. The Optimus Prime One Step is expected to be available from Autumn 2015.

Transformers: Rescue Bots High Tide Rescue Rig

High Tide, a new Rescue Bot recruit in the Transformers: Rescue Bots programming, is introduced here in toy form. The High Tide Rescue Rig includes a mini-sub that converts automatically from vehicle mode to bot mode. High Tide can also command his Rescue Rig ship by placing the figure inside of the center hatch, then raising the levers to reveal him in the commander’s seat. To convert him to vehicle mode, press the levers down and twist the hull – now High Tide is converted to mini-sub mode. The playset also includes a crane with rescue equipment, front storage hatch, and capture cage with trap door. The Rescue Rig is compatible with the Rescue Bots Rescan figures and mini-figures to ignite the imagination.

Also spotted were the super Bumblebee one step changer (similar in size to Stomp & Chomp Grimlock), a Bumblebee blaster gun that looks like a car, and a Decepticon Hunter sword.
That’s all we’ve got for confirmed news for now, but read on for rumors and speculation from an anonymous, but reliable, source.

**The following is rumor and should not be considered speculation until officially confirmed.**

Rumor has it that besides the already much-speculated upcoming releases of Takara Masterpiece Tracks and Masterpiece Ironhide, that we could see Tank Megatron, Ratchet, Shockwave, Blitzwing, and Galvatron.

That’s it for now… but if more news breaks at the UK Toy Fair, you’ll read it here first!

That Optimus kinda has a Star Convoy feel to it. I normally dismiss the 1 or 3 steppers as kiddie junk, but that actually looks nice.

Loving those MP rumors, and hope to h*ll they come true!


I've wanted a MP G2 tank Megatron for years now, but didn't think it would be possible unless made by one of the 3rd party groups. :grin:

Hoping all of All of these rumored MasterPiece Transformers here get made in toys.

Can understand making the Transformations easier for kids as the Movie toys were hard to Transform. Think taking away articulation is a budget cuts issue.

Don't mind buying less complex transformation toys. Would have bought this if it had full articulation on the robot mode.

Since we already saw Leader Generations Megatron next to MP-10 prime it will probably be the Takara version in a sub line not unlike the movie leader bumblebee and starscream were since Takara doesn't do leader class figures often

I'm not sure this is the place for MPs to be revealed, but I do hope I'm wrong.

Nope: the Japanese version of Leader Megatron is slated for the Transformers Legends line. It was merely a size comparison.

Bring on the decepticon city commander!! :DANCE:
And hopefully a new mp gun megatron.
But if they make a tank that represents g1 megatrons robot mode very well, I might settle for that :-?

MP tank Megatron?? *makes a disgusted noise*

I wasn't going to get it at first, but that 3rd party MP Megs is looking a lot better after hearing this news.

Yeah, isn't the UK under Hasbro, not Takara?

Those MP rumors sound cool, but make little sense.
Tank Megatron? In a line that currently prides itself with how close to the toon and media portrayal it is? A Galvatron, so short after the release of the supposed Megatron? And to top it all off That's 7, or if we take the other rumor into account 8 MP figures for this year, with 6 of them being new molds. And all that after Takara announced that they would make 1 large MP mold, two new small MP molds, and repaints of those each year.

Tracks and Ironhide/ Ratchet are the most believable.


What I believe happened is this:
Someone saw Takara's promo image for Leader Class tank Megatron which shows it next to MP10, and then just assumed that that was supposed to be an MP Megatron.
The Galvatron one may be a misinterpreted Combiner Wars Galvatron, which has also been rumored for a while now.

We might get a Galvatron, Shockwave, Blitzwing, Ratchet, Ironhide, and Tracks, but not necessarily as Masterpieces.

Remember How people at Toy Fair confirmed FOC Metroplex was being made into a toy, just to then end up as a Classics Metroplex and not FOC at all?

Then there was that rumor that claimed that Takara's fan poll wasn't there to decide which figure would be made for the 30th, but the order in which they're released, and of course "from a reputable insider source".
Or that Hasbro was releasing 3rd Party figures like FP's Springer and Roadbuster, or Planet X's WFC Omega Supreme in an official capacity under a special line labeled "Thrilling 30", sure we got all of those characters, but they weren't exactly the 3rd party versions.

Here's the thing, these rumors are nice and dandy, and likely based on something someone said, but either misinterpreted, confused or heard in the wrong context.

I'll wait for official confirmation before I get exited.

i couldn't agree more. I can't remember this many MP rumors in such a short span ever. However, I thought Takara said it was doing 2 lg / 4 small per year, and if you look at the scale comparison they put out several years ago, Ironhide/Ratchet are larger than standard cars. Also, do we count Star Saber as one of this year's larges, or is it outside the norm because of the fan poll?
