2014 Generations toys might be coming here
Sep 29, 2014 - 3:01 PM - by GoktimusPrime
After multiple attempts at contacting Hasbro, I finally got a response. My question was when we would see the Transformers Generations 30th anniversary toys in Australia.

I asked for any names of figures that we could expect from the first shipment, but the person that I spoke to told me that she didn't... [Read More]

Z-Knight Optimus Prime

The new Kotobukiya HMM Z-Knight kit in Optimus Prime colours. Image from Autobase Aichi/Nakas.

I don't know if this is being released or just for fun, but it would be cool if there were some more Transformers/Zoids crossovers in TakaraTomy's future.

The December issues have been announced, with cover images and plot details.

So... there's possibly spoilers.
