Upcoming Takara Releases - Translated Figure King Magazine Details

Posted on 10-28-2014 at 11:15 AM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
IMG_1835 TFW2005 members SydneyY and Type-R have both been so gracious as to provide us with a translation of the previously-reported issue of Figure King magazine. The information given here contains lots of fun and interesting factoids, the bulk of it having to do with the fembots and Armor Knight Optimus Prime. To briefly summarize some of what was covered...

Fembot info:
- Arcee was designed by Hironori Kobayashi (of Masterpiece fame) and Yuki Oshima (of Kiss Players fame).
- The descriptor used for Windblade is an "Oiran" rather than a "Geisha", and also that she was indeed inspired by Nijika from G1 as many had suspected.

Armor Knight Optimus Prime info:
- Details on his new face-swapping gimmick
- General details on new molding/accessories
- How he's been packaged to mimic the promotional material.

Other general info:
- Details on Takara's latest promotions
- Upcoming releases
- An interview with Hironori Kobayashi will be featured in the next issue of Figure King magazine.

You can check out the full details after the jump!

DX9 Toys War in Pocket Figures Revealed - Cyclonus, Scourge, and Galvatron

Posted on 10-28-2014 at 10:44 AM by StayingInTheBox under 3rd Party Unlicensed
10750012_564037000362474_4273264131836997816_o The third party/independent group DX9 Toys revealed today on their Weibo page new additions to their line of Legends sized figures, this time around being cleverly named War in Pocket. The first three figures shown are homages to the Decepticons introduced in the 1986 movie: Cyclonus, Scourge, and Galvatron. No names are currently known for the figures, just the release numbers of X-04, X-06, and X-07. You can see some past Legends size releases of DX9 Toys with their Speedo (Blurr) and Guartinel (Ironhide).

RUMOR - Leader Class Ultra Magnus Incoming?

Posted on 10-27-2014 at 07:36 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
IMG_0625_zpsd12e7e57 TFW2005 boards member DecepticusPrime has shared a very intriguing piece of information with us. While scanning through the Leader class Transformers items at the store he works at, he found the AOE Leaders, the 2 upcoming Leader Megatrons, and Leader Thundercracker. This is all, of course, old news. However, upon scanning through, he also found a listing for a new, previously-unknown item - a Leader Class Ultra Magnus.

Take this with a grain of salt for now, but if true, what exactly could it be? Might Hasbro finally be giving us a "complete" Ultra Magnus with full Magnus armor? Will it be G1-based, IDW-based, or something else? Or could it simply be another white redeco of one of the past Leader Optimus Primes?

Whatever the case, if legitimate, there is a good chance we'll be hearing more about it the closer we get to Toy Fair in February.

Feel free to speculate after the jump!
