A Transformers fan event was held in Japan at the Bic Camera Nagoya Station west shop. On show to the public was a vast amount of upcoming releases, including:
  • A test shot of Encore Fortress Maximus. He is shown here with the large "Master Sword" weapon confirming that yes, Encore Fortress Maximus will have his giant sword!
  • Upcoming Masterpiece releases including Soundwave and Red Alert, along with prototypes of the Masterpiece series cassettes Ravage and Rumble.
  • Upcoming releases from the Transformers Generations Japan line, including the five Combaticons and their combined form, Bruticus, Soundwave and Soundblaster, plus the Autobot and Decepticon Data Disks
  • Next month's Transformers Prime Arms Micron releases, Ultra Magnus, Shockwave and Leo Prime
  • Also shown off to the public for the first time were the AMW-13 Advanced Star Saber and AMW-14 Gravity Planet Bow-Gun. These pictures show both sets will feature a mixture of clear plastic and solid plastic Arms Microns - for example, the O.P., B.2. and R.A. on the Advanced Star Saber are solid colors, while the I.R. and W.J. are clear plastic.
  • There was also a display for the Transformers GT and BeCool series.

Various Japanese fan blogs and feeds have been covering the event. Collected here are some of the pictures shared with the fandom at large by Snakas / Autobase Aichi, @Dragon_526 and @robo_z.

It's really old news...

No, IIRC there was never 100% confirmation since all the promo pictures up to this point A) used G1 Fort Max as a stand in and B) omitted the huge sword. Granted, you could see the small sword, but that was not proof positive that the large sword was also included.
brr-icy
hmmm, what are all the slots and holes for on soundwave? functional?
Sol Fury
I think - not 100% sure - that they're fake sockets for headphones and stuff, like the original one had. Probably not functional, just a part of the minicassette recorder detailing.

Indeed, now there's the real confirmation

Ar the early days, e-HOBBY already has said "with Master Sword".

I was not aware of this. Even so, I think we can agree that seeing the actual mold test for the sword sitting there makes it a whole lot more real than any line of text on a website ever could.
JukeOutlander
They should leave Fort Max in that color scheme. Minus the brown.

Shattered Glass Fort Max!
JackJJW
It really looks like Soundwave could be a functional music player of some kind...
Tranzilla
Either MP Ravage is seriously mistransformed, or his head is built upside down.
PoweredConvoy
Pretty much everything shown is great.

I actually really like Fortress Maximus in those colors.

Poor Red Alert.

Some of the Microns in the multi-packs are in fact clear (unlike the solicits show).

Takara's Generations Bruticus is by far the nicest looking FoC Bruticus.

Randy
Transformed
Takara's FOC Bruticus looks great!
Foster
Gotta show some love for that new Devastator head.

From the looks of it just mistransformed...it looks to have a twist behind the front legs thats just been put upside down..this would also put the sticky out flaps on the outside of the forelegs rather than the inside

I too like these colors. Zarak Magnus.

It does look nice, but the OCD in me states that I'd have to get three more of those head mountings to put on every other release of that mold that I'd eventually track down.
Soundwave3k
Wait, what is that extra tray/chest cover in front of Soundwave in this pic? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater
Bossguy
That Bruticus is candy to my eyes!
dtjattan
I want the FortMax test shot!!
Cosablanca
Haha look at Red Alert...
conleyh2006
they should so do a decepticon fortmax in that prototype colorscheme that looks awesome this just made me preorder fortmax lol
Necro Prime
Um, wow! I'm really kind of pissed that the AMW-13 & AMW-14 have clear components/ microns. All the stock photos of them make the Ooje blade look light green. I had intended to give him to Kup, kind of like a bayonet for his combined cannon/rifle mode. Scrap.

Also, WE HAVE A RED ALERT DOWN! RED ALERT DOWN!
Superquad7
Poor ol' Alert couldn't handle all the awesome.
Blitz.
nice to see crazy coloured test shots are still a thing even if they dont pop up on ebay as much.

Also I'd say that proto max if it did go on sale would fetch a rather large chunk of change
Chaosbringer
Soundwave pushed Red Alert off the stand AHAHAHAH

if so this is hilarious, people have been waiting for the longest time for any concrete proof that we would be getting the larger master sword and if it turns out it actually has been there written this whole time that makes me laugh

I can not WAIT to get my hands on that encore fort max to go with my g1

If only there had been a new mold MP Skywarp up there...

dat magnus blue...it hurts. everything else looking pretty sweet though.

man I thought prid magnus was bright too...
guess you can always kick it up a notch.
GAUGE
That Fort Max Proto is Beautiful.

They should release that as Shattered Glass version. lol
Autovolt 127
Nice to know Fort Max comes with that sword.

Of course it had to be Red Alert.

Only thing that would've made it funnier is if he had the malfunctioning spark accessories on his head.
03Mach1
That Fort Max presentation is really unimpressive. Sure, it's cool to see the test shot but Cog's missing an arm and the master sword isn't even complete. Surprising that they wouldn't put their best foot forward.
Maverick Hunter Christian
Kind've cool that the new AMWs are getting a full boxed release. That's neat.

Kind've not cool that some of those Microns are now needlessly molded in clear plastic; especially considering what a piece of junk Ironhide's Micron is to begin with. Also, the clear plastic is breaking up what I thought was some really nice complementary colors going on between the Autobot and Decepticon sets.

Still, eHobby isn't TakTomy. They work real closely with them, but far as I'm concerned up until now the matter of the Master Sword being included or not was a "he tell me" affair. Great to finally see 100% confirmation of it.

Something else worth noting is how they decided to display that FM test shot(Fortress Testimus? ) with a vintage FM box. That would seem to suggest they'll be emulating it for the encore release. Nothing highly unusual about that, but nice to know anyway.

Mother of God.... THIS IS AWESOME. Apart from Soundblaster who I don't care for (but I'll still get Shockwave), the BotShots or uh.... "BeCool", and POSSIBLY Leo Prime (depending on how he turns out - I don't think the pictures we've seen of that paint scheme have been great yet, and it's hard to tell if he has a new head or not. I don't think he does, but it'd be a selling point for me if he does), I'm gonna be buying all of these.

I'm so happy that I pre-ordered FoC Bruticus. The Japanese one, that is. That thing is gorgeous. Swindle and Brawl have amazing paint jobs, and Onslaught follows suit, too. It appears Vortex will look like Hasbro's SDCC photoshopped promo pics, which is good, because I always liked the look of that. The only one that still suffers a bit is Blast-Off, but I saw the Hasbro one in store the other day, and that's probably by far my favourite of the regular release colour schemes, so I could always mix and match. We'll see how he turns out, I guess.

Those Cassetticons looks great, too. They're about 2/3 the price of a Deluxe over here, which is really expensive for two tiny little robots, but considering (for me) that the Japanese price is only slightly higher, and, as I presumed, the paint jobs are FAR superior, I'll just stick with the Japanese releases.

sorry to disappoint you, but it's been said / confirmed many times that AM Lio Prime does not have a new head sculpt.
Soundwave3k
Okay, I have to ask this again, but what is that extra tray/chest cover in front of Soundwave in this pic? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

I've never seen that before...
Knightdramon
Possibly a "stand" for the energon cube or dare I say, an alternate cover for his chest piece that supports an additional tape?
BlueAngel_Bolt
Am I the only one who saw the Fort Max proto and thought it looked like a SG Maximus?
Wazdakka
Those Combaticons make me feel naughty.

Forget SG. I would love to just see a straight Decepticon redeco of Fort Max in purple and black (maybe a little teal too) with Con logos all over the place.

Yeah, it looks like an alternate cover all right. Have we seen it up until now though? Maybe something for Soundblaster?
PrimusVsUnicron
that a prototype Fort Max? or a SG version

Isn't Soundwave using his chest as some sort of radarscreen in one of the G1 episodes???

I think it may be a chest cover/connection piece so you can connect the energon cube to his chest to make it look like he's generating it.

Actually I think Mixmasterjay may be right. Wasn't it in More Than Meets The Eye where Soundwave had some kind of grid pattern schematic on his chest?
