    Yes, Magnae Barcelona and Lucca Comics and Games started today and ends on November 3rd so we'll probably get reveals Friday or Saturday, if anything.

    And Hasbro did say they would be there for their brands (Star wars, Transformers, Marvel, etc.) so hopefully.

    Indeed. I’m pretty sure for Lucca, Hasbro is having their panel at 12 tomorrow and at Barcelona they’ll be going around the same time Saturday.

    Bonecrusher is less than $22 on amazon, in case anyone still hasn’t gotten him.

    That combined mode looks a lot better, and more promising. But still, I don't think that's what the final product is going to look like.

    Seeing how they still didnt transform Scavengers wheel struts im pretty sure its still mistransformed to a degree. More effort put into than at the display at least.

    Hnnnng I wish I had the funds to spare to order Mixmaster and Scavenger, but alas

    One thing I've noticed about in-hand photos of Scavenger in particular is that those with him in-hand never seem to remember to attach the "arms" that reach from the behind the head to the middle of the upper wheel. They're definitely there, they exist in Hasbro's renders at least

    why has no one showed the proper way to combine mixmaster and scavenger. I mean, sure there's an extra piece with overload, but I doubt that'll factor into the combination a whole bunch

    Most of these are taken samples from factories, no box or instructions included, so they're just guessing on the combine mode.

    I kinda like how chunky Soundwave looks. Even with his spikes and demon-bird face I still wanna hug him.

    I just got my first copy of the Nitro Zeus mold through KSI Boss and I was very excited for him; has anyone else had serious trouble transforming him? I've watched YouTube videos, but almost nothing on my toy fits together where it's supposed to - it's not that the tolerances on pegs are bad, just nothing lines up. The wings do not tab into the crotch pieces, the wings do not tab into the knees, and the feet do not like to get into the bum end of the jet.

    Can you provide pictures of won't line up? I have both versions of the mold so I may be able to help.

    Well, based on this post from capcomkai where we see the constructicons together, we get a definitive comparison between new Bee and Soundwave.

    Sad the sizing isn't a little bit better but I'm happy nonetheless. Soundwave is nice and stocky, the way he should be. Maybe in the future if we get a DOTM Bee they'll reengineer this mold to make it a little smaller??

    Looks like Bumblebee is taller than Barricade too.

    iOS dark mode most likely. That’s how it is on my iPhone.


    Bee and Soundwave looks stellar, can’t wait for them. Bee is definitely the most accurate version we have of him!
