Transformers: Robots In Disguise App Toy Characters - Repaints And Remolds

Posted on 05-24-2015 at 08:43 AM by SilverOptimus under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Transformers-Robots-In-Disguise-Repaints-And-Remolds We are back with the final round of Toys from the Transformers: Robots In Disguise Mobile Game App Update. This time we've unlocked the "Special Editions" toys. These toys are either Repaints or Remolds of already existing figures from the toyline. We've updated the last weekend's post regarding the Clash Of The Transformers figures with COTF Legion Class Underbite as well (so sorry we missed that).

We've also made some observations regarding several game characters which were not assigned to particular toy size classes. Optimus Prime Ultra Magnus repaint contains kibble of a Legion Class RID Optimus Prime toy (comparing with the current Legion Optimus Prime toy and the upcoming Clash Of The Transformers Legion Class Optimus Prime) indicating that it may very well be a legion class toy. Sadly however, the Pumpkin Optimus Prime and the Desert Optimus Prime are repaints of the Starter Optimus Prime, which is the Animated Series Model in the game; indicating that we may not see both of them on shelves. Their absence from the Collections Page further confirms the matter. Same fate is shared by Cybertron Underbite who is also a repaint of the show model instead of an actual toy. On to a more happy note, Stomp N' Chomp RID Grimlock is indeed listed on the Collections Page and is a remold of the Transformers: Age Of Extinction Stomp N' Chomp Grimlock judging by the identical kibble.

Check out the images, after the jump.

Robots in Disguise Grimlock Concept Art

Posted on 05-24-2015 at 02:27 AM by Sol Fury under Robots In Disguise (201x)
11356473_495154393972099_958246620_n Artist Jose Lopez has shared some the concept work for Robots in Disguise Grimlock on Instagram. The work consists of some models for how Grimlock looks in the series in both his modes. Be sure to check out the one showing the robot mode for a look at Grimlock's battlemask - a full faceplate with visor that gives Grimlock a full-on Generation 1 look. Perhaps this alternate head will see use on the upcoming Generation 1 themed redeco of the toy, too?

Unite Warriors Ultra Prime Teaser

Posted on 05-24-2015 at 02:02 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
CFvrrBNVAAEpINt Hot off the back of the reveal of the Takara-Tomy release of Defensor for Japan, Hisashi Yuki has tweeted a teaser of a Unite Warriors version of Ultra Prime. The silhouette in the teaser has the distinctive head design of Ultra Prime, and we can also make out some parts of the Stunticons in the silhouette, which matches up to the rumored lineup of the "Masquerade" Autobots - Prowl (Dead End, right arm), Mirage (Dragstrip, right leg), Sunstreaker (Breakdown, left leg, based on the foot component), and Ironhide (Offroad, left arm).

No word on how this one is getting a release in Japan, but we'd bet on this being a mass retail release - for those crying, why is this not an exclusive, remember, Japan loves their hero characters, and things in Transformers do not get much more heroic than Optimus Prime!

Kabaya Piranhacon / King Poseidon Candy Toys

Posted on 05-23-2015 at 03:36 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
R9nHZ40 Via Snakas' blog we have learned that Kabaya has a candy kit version of Generation 1 Piranacon in the works!

Known as King Poseidon in Japan and featured as an antagonist in the 1988 series Chojin Masterforce, Piranacon was one of the coolest combiners of the Generation 1 era. He had six members based on sea creatures, the five smaller members of whom could make up limbs for the gestalt with the one left over becoming a gun.

This candy toy version, revealed in a banner ad on Syokugan Ohkoku looks to faithfully recreate that original, with the added feature of the smaller guns linking up into one huge rifle. According to Snakas, this one is due to arrive in July.

BotCon Announces Kojin Ono As Convention Guest

Posted on 05-22-2015 at 06:40 PM by Matty under Conventions
ono_sunstreaker BotCon has announced its final guest for the 2015 lineup: Kojin Ono! Read on for more details and get ready for registration, which should be going live next week barring any issues.

KOJIN ONO is a designer for Takara-Tomy and was the key creative force behind the introduction of Car Robots in Japan, the converting robots that would be at the core of the 1984 launch of a "new" toy line known as "The Transformers". The robot known as "Sunstreaker" was the first of his designs, but would hardly be the last. Hound, Bluestreak, Sideswipe, Trailbraker, The Dinobots, The Constructicons… All of these amazing design were brought to diecast metal life by Kojinsan, who it should be mentioned, was part of the initial class of Transformers Hall of Fame inductees back in 2010 along with Peter Cullen, Bob Budiansky, and Takara's lead designer on Transformers, Hideaki Yoke.

It is truly an honor to welcome this legendary designer to his first ever BotCon!
