Transformers Bearbrick Crossovers Optimus Prime and Megatron In Hand

Posted on 07-23-2014 at 02:13 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
20140723005256f27 Alfes2010 has updated his blog with some in-hand pics of the Transformers Bearbrick (or rather, Be@rbrick) Transformers crossovers figures, Optimus Prime and Megatron. These figures start out like cute, dumpy, cartoon bear versions of their classic selves, but like many a piece of Transformers merchandise - they transform into more traditionally proportioned robot modes! Judging by the scale of the accessories they are pictured with, the pair are roughly Legends sized and very poseable. Check out these in-hand images - they're out in Japan now with a future assortment adding Starscream and Bumblebee into the mix.

Official Hot Toys G1 Optimus Prime Figure (Starscream Version)!

Posted on 07-23-2014 at 08:44 AM by Mechafire under Generation 1
10561544_10152201016117344_759091453385653270_n Hot Toys' Facebook page has just revealed their newest product - Hot Toys Optimus Prime! A non-transforming G1 Optimus Prime figure, this product is also labeled as being the "Starscream Version", as it bizarrely enough is packaged with a bunch of G1 Starscream-based accessories including a bonus SDCC exclusive severed Starscream head. It also comes with a ground display diorama with the Autobot logo emblazoned on it.

For those not aware of the Starscream reference, the Generation 1 episode "Megatron's Masterplan" showed Decepticons masquerading as Autobots to discredit them, which showed a scene of Starscream as Optimus Prime with wings out.

From Hot Toys:

“One shall stand, one shall fall"

Under license from Hasbro, Inc., Hot Toys is proud to present the Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) Collectible Figure from the classic and highly popular THE TRANSFORMERS GENERATION 1.

The Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) Collectible Figure stands approximately 30cm tall, featuring a highly detailed mechanical structure and remarkable painting applications with distress effect, a pair of Starscream’s wings, weapons, and a rocky ground diorama base with Autobots’ logo.

THE TRANSFORMERS GENERATION 1 fans shouldn’t miss the chance to pre-order this cool collectible figure!

Pre-ordering at Ani-Com will include a Starscream head as bonus accessory.

Hong Kong customers please stay tuned on Hot Toys-Secret Base Facebook Page for pre-order arrangement details.

Million Hero Generations Volume 2 Figure Exclusive Poll Results

pre9eUu Million hero have updated their blog with the results of the blog which they recently held to determine the exclusive Transformers mail-away figure with the upcoming Transformers Generations Volume 2 book. Narrowly topping the poll by less than 0.5% of the vote is Go-Shooter from the 1988 series Transformers Chojin Masterforce, redecoed from Generations Nightbeat. Narrowly behind in second place was Alpha Trion, a redeco of the Generations Scourge, and then, with just under 15% of the vote, we find the Beast Wars Fuzor Silverbolt themed redeco of Beast Hunters Grimwing.

Bad news for those hoping for some Omnibots though - the trio of Autobots who were mail-away exclusives back in the 80s took less than 5% of the vote between them, with Camshaft in last place.

Masterpiece Star Saber First Prototype Images

Posted on 07-22-2014 at 12:05 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
Masterpiece-Star-Saber Scans from the latest Japanese magazines have begun to circulate online - and in an exciting twist, this latest batch of hobby magazines contains our very first look at Masterpiece Star Saber!

This magazine scan shows Masterpiece Star Saber in both robot and spaceship mode. In robot mode, he comes armed with his Saber Blade, and it is evident from this image he's already got the original Star Saber outdone for poseability. What's more, the magazine scan shows that the smaller jet / robot Transformer who forms the core of Star Saber, Saber, is also included and looks very sharp.

This makes Star Saber the first Masterpiece Transformer to feature the longstanding Transformer gimmick of "smaller transforming robot who combines with a trailer to form a super robot" and he appears to do it extremely well. The innermost robot figure in this Transformers series of Russian dolls, the core Brainmaster, is discussed in the accompanying text but is not yet confirmed, though we'd imagine it will be included since it was a key feature of the original.

Check out the latest scan which comes via aloadofhupla on Twitter after the break.

TF_GIJ_01-pr_00001 Newsarama has updated with the comic previews for both Transformers: Windblade #4 and Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #1:

Transformers: Windblade #4
PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE! WINDBLADE seeks out the last refuge she has left, the living city METROPLEX as his malfunctions intensify! WINDBLADE realizes that even if she survives STARSCREAM, METROPLEX himself may doom them all!

Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #1
SPACE WAR I! Earth makes contact with an alien race—and G.I. JOE is on the front lines of first contact! But when the TRANSFORMERS arrive—their version of “peace” does not match our own…

Both will be released this Wednesday, July 23, but you can check the previews out after the jump if you don't mind some spoilers.

Also be sure to check back tomorrow for TFW's review of Windblade #4!
