I'd buy that Drift in a heartbeat if it wasn't for the head. Here's hoping for a retool...

It's the same as the one Hasbro is releasing.

Super excited for Convoy. Those colors are so vibrant. It looks top notch.

I’m also looking forward to Drift. I’ve never handled a movie Drift, and I’m not expecting much from the figure itself, but the paint job does look premium. If nothing else, it’ll be nice to have a good looking Drift to round out the movie cast. Plus I’m such a sucker for minifigs. Mostly for human minifigs, for scale, but these baby Dinobots look nice.

Repugnus and Grotusque in the same box!
I missed out on the Amazon ones so I will buy this set in a heartbeat! =P~

Also, that Drift is sexy as fok. I won't buy it because of the overall price. But still, if a used loose one pop up at a reasonable price, I would cave in.

Why not the identical Hasbro version?

Whatver the cheaper and easiest to obtain.
That Takara set is a Takara Tomy Mail exclusive. The Amzon ones are sold out or overpriced.
Sigh, guess I'll have to pass on everything. #-o

Oh.
Still, isn't a something-or-other exclusive too? Making it the same price and the same difficulty to obtain like the Japanese version anyway?

It comes out to the same since Drift is also an exclusive. Might be expensive to get for a Quebecer like Kanrabat and myself.

Oh? Well, I'm not up to date at all it seem.
So whatever the release, the price will be a big fat nope for me and many others outside Japan or the USA.

Its a toysrus exclusive for countries that have that retailer, like us. So we will get it. It will probably be $40 CAD. The only thing we dont know is if there will be french on the box or not.

At 40$, fair enough. It's like that Bee with the extra parts. And if that Drift is like that Bee, there should be no problems.
But TrU is repeating the no French on MP boxes again so anything can happen. #-o

Oh, and for those who don't understand what's the big deal with the French on box thing, TrU is the only store that completely BAN any toys to be sold in Quebec if there's no French on the freaking box. We can't even order them online.

The kind folks over at Loopaza Megastore have been kind enough to once more scan the Transformers section of the latest Figure King Magazine, in this case #254.

The latest magazine features a plethora of movie related figures, first advertising the upcoming Studio Series Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime figure, and featuring him alongside his little VW buddy. We also get a look at Cogman, Shatter, Scrapmetal, and Rampage, which includes a chart showing the 8 component locations of Devastator with Scrapmetal and Rampage filled in in their slots.

We also get a look at 2 new Siege figures in the form of Refraktor and Caliburst, which includes the gray prototype of the Refraktor camera mode. Also included is a look at the MP-10 Lebron version, which recently was released, some shots of the Transformers x Mazinger G, and the 7-Eleven Japanese Exclusive Nemesis Prime from the Takara Legendary Commander Optimus Prime for the Bumblebee movie.

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

That Lebron MP-10 is, in a word, "Lebronvoy". :P

I said it before, and I will say it now, "Lebronvoy" is still one of my favorite puns in the Transformers fandom :lol:

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?)
