Official images have come from TakaraTomy Mall of the fifth giftset in the Unite Warriors line. It is UW05 Convoy Grand Prime, comprised of Convoy, Sunstreaker, Ligier, Ironhide, and Prowl. All are respectively redecos of the Generations Combiner Wars figures of Optimus Prime, Sunstreaker, Mirage, Ironhide, and Prowl. While the individual figures themselves are colored to be more cartoon-accurate, the combined form of Convoy Grand Prime is colored to homage Grand Convoy Super Mode from Transformers: Super Link (Optimus Prime Super Mode from Transformers: Energon).
Much like UW03 Guardian, the set is slated to be a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive, and set for release on September 24. Official images are below. ...
The 26th episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has finally aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Titled "Battlegrounds, Part 2", this is the final episode of the first season. Last time, Steeljaw's Pack made preparations for the arrival of the ancient evil, Megatronus, on Earth. Though both Bumblebee and Optimus each made their own preparations to stop his coming to Earth, both of them were too late to stop his arrival. Now, Megatronus has come, and nearly every Autobot we've seen before in this show much unite together to stop him. Can the Autobots prevail, or will Megatronus succeed in annihilating both the Earth and Cybertron? ...
TFSource has posted a preorder with the first images of the newest Transformers Legends figure from TakaraTomy: LG18 Starscream Super Mode! A redeco of Generations Thrilling 30 Deluxe class Armada Starscream, this figure is based on the upgraded form that Starscream received from the power of the Mini-Cons in episode 43 of the Armada cartoon, which in turn was based on the deco of Armada Thundercracker toy.
The confusion behind all this stems from differing viewpoints between Hasbro and Takara at the time. Hasbro evidently wanted to have a Thundercracker redeco of the Starscream toy be a new character, while Takara wanted to keep pushing Starscream as a character since he was becoming even more prominent and popular as a character in the cartoon. But, since there was a new toy that they had to sell, Takara came up with a solution by releasing the Thundercracker toy in Japan as "Starscream Super Mode", which was reflected by the cartoon having Starscream upgrade into these new colors, thereby enabling the Thundercracker toy to be advertised simultaneous to Starscream's own development without having to shove in yet another new character on top of an already large cast of characters in a show that was already heading in a more complex direction with the Unicron Battles about to be underway. Plus, a new Starscream toy would likely sell better than a toy of someone else. ...
2016 is the Chinese Year of the Monkey and you know what that means? Yep, we're getting yet another Chinese New Year-themed Optimus toy for the Platinum Edition line. But this time, the figure is not Optimus "Prime". In what might be the most appropriate selection yet, 2016 is getting a "Year of the Monkey" Optimus PRIMAL! Planet Iacon's Facebook has the first images of this figure, which reveal it to be a redeco of the Robots in Disguise (2001) Supreme Class Air Attack Optimus Primal toy from 2002, which itself was originally supposed to be a Beast Machines toy but didn't get released until the next toyline had already replaced the Beast Machines line. This "Year of the Monkey" redeco uses a color scheme comprised of the traditional G1 Optimus Prime red and blue colors, thereby making this figure bear quite a resemblance to Primal Prime (who was in turn a G1 Optimus-colored redeco of Beast Wars Optimal Optimus). ...
The 25th episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Titled "Battlegrounds, Part 1", we have finally come to the first part of the long-awaited Season 1 finale. The time has come for the great evil Optimus warned Bumblebee about to appear on Earth, as Steeljaw's Pack works to prepare for this great evil's arrival. However, both Optimus and the Bee Team are still not yet ready to face this new threat and so must hasten their preparation prematurely. Can either of them make it in time to stop the prophesied evil from emerging, or is the Earth doomed once and for all? Let's see. ...
