US GEN Slingshot & Wildrider confirmed - with new names
Mar 24, 2015 - 12:25 PM - by griffin
Looks like Slingshot and Wildrider are definitely limited edition exclusives from Hasbro, as they have appeared in a Diamond/Previews listing for May... suggesting a shared exclusive at American comic shops and ToysRUs America.
(no idea if they will come here, or what other American sources might have them as well)

Since... [Read More]

JP Unite Warriors Menasor now official
Mar 23, 2015 - 8:54 PM - by griffin
After seeing Superion a couple months ago for June (with Slingshot), a Menasor was expected to follow it, and hopefully with a Wildrider as well.

Scans of the current Figure King magazine from Japan has given us a very small tease of Menasor, and the left leg is definitely NOT Offroad.
From what I can... [Read More]

Black Knight AD-31 Optimus from Japan
Mar 21, 2015 - 1:47 AM - by griffin
Just when you thought the fourth movie toys were finally all done, TakaraTomy decides to throw out one more for the hell of it... and it doesn't come out until August 3rd, which is a year after the movie was released in Japan, for about 8000yen. (about AU$90 atm)

It looks like this black redeco of the AD-31 remoulded Optimus toy is a ToysRUs exclusive in Japan, so might be even rarer to find than the AD-31 toy,... [Read More]

Transformers Rising now playable for iOs
Mar 20, 2015 - 11:38 PM - by reillyd
Despite being un available for players from the US, the Asia Pacific
Server is up and running for a limited beta. The game heavily uses
Artwork from Transformer Legends, but does have a little new stuff as well.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that gameplay kinda sucks, with almost no strategy whatsoever.
Reminds me of the pokies, where even if I win something I'm clueless as to why, or how the rules work. I'm level 13 after half an hours... [Read More]

Cyber Battalion series toys
Mar 18, 2015 - 2:08 PM - by griffin
From a Brazilian retailer product guide comes something that looks like another subline of simpler Transformers toys... but since it is all in Portuguese, details and names are not for sure at this time, so have a look and possibly expect an official announcement by Hasbro during the middle-year convention season.

With all the conjecture about previous Asian release stickers being official or not, I guess when they are handed... [Read More]

Transformers Rising game app now out
Mar 13, 2015 - 6:07 PM - by griffin
First up, I'm a bit confused by this game app, so excuse me if I get something wrong here.

News has come out in the last day that the next game app for the Western market (which should include us) is now out, and is called Transformers Rising.

Now, since I'm not one who uses game apps or follows much about them, this is where it... [Read More]
