New pictures of Masterpiece Tracks, Unite Warriors Superion and Menasor and More

Posted on 04-16-2015 at 02:36 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
bc02f65a At a recent Takara-Tomy business meeting, there was an exhibition of upcoming releases. A prototype of the sublime looking Masterpiece Tracks was on show, along with Gold Bumblebee.

The Unite Warriors line was also shown, with both Superion and Menasor represented - however, Menasor was the Hasbro one rather than the altered deco (with Wildrider) rather than the modified deco that will be offered as a set in Japan.

Check out the images attached to this post, courtesy of Hobbylog. Their coverage also includes a look at Takara-Tomy's other new transforming robot line, the train-robot series Shinkarion.

Takara-Tomy Unite Warriors Menasor New Official Images

Posted on 04-09-2015 at 01:35 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
4904810831723 E-Hobby and Takara-Tomy Mall have added new images showing off the Unite Warriors version of the combiner, Menasor! The Japanese release of the Stunticons from Combiner Wars, Unite Warriors Menasor is based more strongly on the Generation 1 cartoon designs, down to the silver-white arms on an otherwise black Motormaster toy, the lack of stripe on Dead End, and other changes. The set also forgoes Offroad in favor of a Dead End retool for Wildrider, meaning this is one giftset that incorporates all five main Stunticons, as they were in Transformers Generation 1.

Posted on 04-02-2015 at 11:49 PM by ORIO under Japanese Transformers
Menasor News from our site sponsors! TFsource have just sent us a clear image of Takara Tomy's version of Combiner Wars Menasor.

Transformers Adventure Clear EZ Collection Optimus Prime Prize Campaign

Posted on 04-02-2015 at 02:07 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
E382AAE38397E38386E382A3E3839EE382B9EZ Takara-Tomy have updated their website with details of a new Transformers Adventure Prize Campaign. A clear version of the Robots in Disguise Legends Optimus Prime is set to be offered through Toys R Us Japan at the end of April, when the customer spends more than 3,000 yen on Transformers Adventure merchandise.

It's a cool follow on to the trio of Legends who were released last month as a promotion to launch the Transformers Adventure line in Japan, and with another four molds (at least), we anticipate that Takara-Tomy may well continue onward with clear versions of RiD Legend class figures for their prize campaigns for the TF Adventure toyline.
