Greetings Seibertronians! It's that time of year folks, as Wonder Festival 2020 [Winter] is set to kick off in Japan this weekend, and of course Takara Tomy will be there with some goodies to show off. According to a post on their website, one of these goodies will be a world first as they plan on unveiling the complete Studio Series Devesator! One can only assume that this will be made up of all the finalised toys unlike the last time we saw Devy in which case he was sporting a blue prototype of Overload, the last Leader Class Constructicon to be released.

As well as all the latest Studio Series releases, they are bringing with them Generations Earthrise and the latest Generations Selects toys.

To help promote Devesator, Takara Tomy are doing a twitter based giveaway where if you retweet their promotional tweet while attending the show, simple show your screen to one of the attendants to be given a free A5 sized file featuring Devesator on one side of it (while stocks last).

Here is the message from Takara Tomy's website, bearing in mind this has been machine translated:

Although I am not a fan of the movies or movie toys, I do have a select few that I do like, I am more interested in the Earthrise display.

From the looks of it,it will be the first time all of Devastator's components will be together for the first time in a public show! :D

I'm generally ok with the weird movie designs but there are a few I absolutely hate. Bumblebee's Gerber baby pacifier face, chicken/bug/ape Starsceam & Devastator. Devastator is so bad he looks like he is from a totally different franchise. My mind just won't allow me to see that stupid looking thing as a "Transformer".

Hopefully this means they'll be on display individually as well and we FINALLY get a look at Scrapper and Overload

Really excited for Devastator! It's going to be insane seeing it all together after all this time. Hopefully we see Overload's robot mode too!

Your imagination needs a fresh T-Cog! Transformers can be anything, with the power to surprise, they're robots in disguise!

That's the super interesting part to me as well. We've had an ok Devy in the past and some very good stand alone, non-combining movie boys but never a proper Overload. Very excited for that particular piece!

Now Tigatron I could have guessed (in a wild fancy since to be cartoon accurate they'd have to change the cheetor mold) Arcee though.. Nope didn't see that one coming at all, wonder how she'll fair

Looking at that pile of Bayverse? Studio Devastator needs all the promotion he can get...

It was this time last year at Wonder Festival 2019 [Winter] that Takara Tomy revealed their intentions to release repaints of MP-10 Convoy/Optimus prime based on Nike Air Max shoes designed by Japanese designer atmos. A year later we have what may be the final design for the "duck camo" version that mixes camouflage and blaze orange. Changes are fairly minor from the original prototype, the weapons are now orange instead of brown and the truck stripe is now camo. The orange is a lot paler than on the shoe so hopefully there's still some room for improvement. Images come via Dengeki Hobby.

Meanwhile at WonFes 2020 we also got to see a full Selects Seacons set on display. This is likely all final retail figures since the final set is due for release in Japan in March. Interestingly they've included Lio Convoy in the display, perhaps foreshadowing the coming of a certain other king of the ocean from his time? Photos also come via Dengeki Hobby. Interestingly the display points out quite prominently that Selects is a joint venture between Takara Tomy and Hasbro rather than the two companies doing their own things separately under the same logo as we previously thought. It seems Hasbro may have had some involvement in the Seacons' and Star Convoy's creation after all.

And finally, we little fanfare, was a display for Japan's wave 1 of Earthrise plus Omega Supreme. Comparing the displays and how little of ER will be sold at retail it would seem like Takara Tomy has much bigger plans for Studio Series in 2020. Image comes via @is42731 on Twitter.

It's going to be an exciting 2020! Be sure to let us know what you've thought about Wonder Festival 2020 [Winter] in the Energon Pub Forums!

Those MP-10 variants are getting stranger as time goes by, this could almost be repurposed as Toxitron.

Love the Seacons set, I'd really like to see God Neptune, whose colours are definitely more elegant. I wonder if the missing G1 Seacon would be included, repainted and named for the occasion.

I can't decide which is more awful looking: the shoe, or the same color scheme on Optimus. :-?

Right there with you, D-Max. I’m also very much into the asymmetrical deco. The colors are very close to Roadbuster’s, and it works for me.

I'd be on board with atmos Convoy if two things were changed. 1) Brighter orange, it's too dull. And 2) Add some white, the shoe has a ton of it and there isn't a bit of it on the figure.

They also missed the opportunity to slap some tampographs on his feet to make it look like he's wearing the shoes. Robots have worn Nikes in Japan so why not Transformers?

Well, all I can say about that Atmos Prime is that it does match the shoes, and that head sculpt for Tigatron is Just awesome.
