    Both TakaraTomy Mall and the Toy Dojo Facebook have posted official images of the new Transformers: Adventure toys. Transformers: Adventure is the Japanese version of the new Robots in Disguise line, but which also include molds from Animated, Prime Beast Hunters, Generations, and simplified Age of Extinction. The toys are divided into two categories. TAV toys are the main line ones consisting of Warrior class molds and Deluxe/Voyager molds from the previous lines, while TED toys are the simplified ones like the One Step Changers, Hyperchange Heroes/Three Step Changers, AOE One Step Changers, and AOE Power Battlers. Through the space bridge to see what all this line contains.

    Big Bad Toy Store has posted a preorder page for the new Transformers: Unite Warriors release of UW01 Superion from TakaraTomy, in which it is confirmed to be a giftset containing all five Aerialbots. Listed price is $124.99 USD. And a closer look at the included image reveals that the figures will be using their original Japanese names, with Firefly/Fireflight being named "Firebolt", Air Raid being named "Air Rider", and Slingshot being named "Sling"

    Plus, e-HOBBY has posted the first official images of all five figures, which are all redecos of their Hasbro counterparts in the Generations Combiner Wars line, but with Sling being a redeco and remold of Firefly with a new headsculpt. All of their new decos are more show-accurate than the Hasbro decos. Through space bridge for the images.

    Hot on the heels of the recently revealed TakaraTomy Transformers: Unite Warriors UW-01 Superion coming with a Slingshot figure comes new toy listings from Toys "R" Us's computer system for Generations Combiner Wars releases of Wildrider and Slingshot. This info comes from TFW2005 member Icespark, who's had a history in uncovering upcoming toy listings in TRU computers. He's previously found listings for Hasbro's Masterpiece Prowl, Hasbro's MP Bluestreak, the yet-to-be-determined "Megatronus" figure, Hasbro's MP Sunstorm, and the AOE Optimus Prime Evolution 2-Pack.

    A second TFW2005 member, jru42287, has seconded the existence of these listings, stating that there are images of these two figures, but which are not permitted to be shown at this time. He too is a known finder of upcoming toy listings, as he's previously found the original listing for the currently-rumored Devastator, the $99.99 price of Hasbro's Masterpiece Optimus Prime (the MP-10 mold), the first image of Hasbro's MP Sunstorm, the listing for the AOE Platinum Edition Breakout Battle set, the listing for the AOE Platinum Edition Optimus Prime w/ Trailer and Sideswipe set, and the listing for the AOE Platinum Edition Leader 2-pack.

    Much to the chagrin of many disgruntled fans, it would seem that Marlboro's parent company Phillip Morris USA is still not satisfied with the new deco for TakaraTomy's Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust. We previously learned that Takara had modified the deco to remove a few aspects of the deco that resembled Marlboro's chevron logo in order to make the toy more legally marketable for Western consumers. However, a message from Kapow Toys' Facebook reveals that the new deco still does not pass the muster in Phillip Morris's eyes. The company is going to great lengths to make certain that Exhaust does not get sold to American shores, seemingly no matter what. To read what Kapow Toys was told, head through the space bridge.

    Seibertron member Va'al was in attendance of the UK Toy Fair and has reported on a few things revealed there, including toys for the new Robots in Disguise line, the Rescue Bots line, and even some further rumors regarding future Masterpieces that sound really far-fetched and unbelievable (naturally, those should be taken with a grain of salt, especially since this is a Hasbro event and not Takara).

    The Q-Transformers: Mystery of Convoy Returns cartoon continues with its third episode now online. In this one, Optimus, Bumblebee, and Lockdown continue their usual playful chatter regarding the Mystery of Convoy game and their constant back-and-forth joking. The conversation switches at first from why they're even bothering to play such a terrible game to discussing situations that would be considered "rubbing salt into wounds". Check out the episode through the space bridge.

    We ve been looking the first wave of Combiner Wars deluxes popping everywhere. Fans know that in the IDW comics and toys Alpha Bravo replaces Slingshot (and also is a good way of having a set with a different type of alt-mode Tf and also potential Blades and Vortex redecos down the line...). But in Japan they prefer their Superion in classic flavor. So they will have Slingshot either way. *TLA

    Courtesy of Previewsworld.com, and the comic solicitations for next February, we get what very well could be our first look at the (hopeful) Combiner Wars Defensor figure. A great team which wasn't given a lot of screen time, or characters flushed out in the G1 original series, it's great to see a new take, and new life brought to this classic team of characters! - Could this also be the first glimpse of (the foot of) the rumored Titan class Devastator-Constructicon set??? Here's hoping!

    The Transformers YouTube page has posted two new videos, highlighting characters in the soon-to-be-debuting, Transformers: Robots in Disguise series. These feature the smallest and perhaps most comedic of the Autobot's new team: Fixit; to one of the largest and most solemn, Optimus Prime! Warning, part two may be considered a bit Spoilerish......

    I'm happy to see the "Return of Optimus Primal," but consider this: If you had come to me ~18 years ago when the Beast Wars were all the rage, and try to tell me that Optimus Primal would someday turn into a red and blue T-rex with smokestacks, windshield panes and a truck grill on his chest... I would've told you you were CRAZY! --Wait, a Beast-Wars-Megatron-like t-rex, colored and decked out like G1 Optimus Prime?! What?!?!

    Take all of the following with a grain of salt, as Chinese auction site Taobao has put up three preorder auctions for what are claimed to be the next three Masterpiece figures to come after Star Saber. According to these auctions, MP-25 is listed as Tracks, MP-26 is listed as "Tracks (Red)" (a Diaclone-based deco better known as the fembot Road Rage), and MP-27 is listed as Ironhide. There are no images (other than placeholders), no release dates, and the country of origin for each is listed as the "United States", but it remains to be determined whether or not these rumors are true or false.

    Here's a strange case for ya. A banner image from UK Toy Fair with artwork for both the Generations Combiner Wars and Robots in Disguise lines has turned up in the /toy/ part of 4chan, in which we are given a look at some very peculiar things. Most notably, pictured in the left-middle box is what appears to be a white redeco of the Voyager Optimus Prime figure in its Ultra Prime configuration, with a redeco of Legends Blackjack attached to its chest while sporting a very Rodimus-esque deco.

    Now before it's decided that this could be the rumored Leader class Ultra Magnus, keep in mind that a full Generations Combiner with four Deluxe limbs and a Voyager torso is way too big to be a Leader class toy, and that fellow Transformers fan Venksta (who has been credible with previous stories like the Devastator rumor) has reassured us that this toy is, if anything, not Ultra Magnus.

    Other options could be Nova Prime or Thunderclash, but since the Transformers Collectors Club is doing their own Nova Prime this year (which they could only do if Hasbro wasn't), that rules out Nova. And Legal Force Trademarkia confirms that Hasbro's Trademark for the name "Thunderclash" expired last October, so just what on Earth could this be?

    Also of note is that the Bumblebee image in the bottom-left corner looks to be of the Classics Bumblebee mold. As it is not preexisting artwork, could we be getting yet another release of that mold? Through the space bridge for the image.

    Thanks to TFW2005 user Icespark, two new toy listings have turned up in the computer systems of Toys "R" Us stores. One is for a figure that was first announced back at BotCon 2014: Masterpiece Bluestreak. Its price is listed as being $59.99.

    The other one, however, is a bit more cryptic. Its price is $29.99, which does not apply to any known size class of either the Generations or Robots in Disguise line (though, Voyagers are sold at that price by TRU, but that's a markup price). And its name raises many more questions: "Megatronus". This name refers to two separate characters from the Aligned continuity. One is the original name of the The Fallen, while the other is the original name of Megatron himself. Before we jump to thinking that this could be a new toy of The Fallen, recall how Megatron retired from being evil at the end of Transformers: Prime. It is possible that this could be a new RID toy of Megatron having gone back to his pre-Decepticon name. To see the listings head through the space bridge.

    If you were unable to attend SacAnime 2015 at the beginning of January, at which Peter Cullen was in attendance and held two panels, fret not, for fellow Transformers fan Sean Long has posted two video recordings of both the Saturday panel and the Sunday panel, running at about 50 minutes each. In these panels, Peter Cullen discusses his role as the voice of Optimus Prime in several projects, from the G1 cartoon to the live action movies, Transformers: Prime to Rescue Bots, the video games to the upcoming Robots in Disguise cartoon. He shares stories about his life both personal and professional, he gives his opinions on the Transformers past and present, and even discusses things like how there were lines in the live action movies that he felt very displeased having to make Optimus say.

    As a lead-in to the panel videos, voice actor and Transformers fan Jon Bailey put together an introductory video for Peter Cullen made for his appearance at SacAnime. To see all of these videos and experience more of the life of the legendary Peter Cullen, head through the space bridge.

    Transformers: Adventure is the Japanese name for the new Robots in Disguise line, and Hobby Search has posted new listings for both it and the Q-Transformers line. However, these listings contain figures that indicate the Adventure line to be much more than just a straight Japanese import of the RID toys, as there are also molds from Generations, Prime Beast Hunters, and even Animated thrown into the mix. To see the listings, head through the space bridge.

    Recall how virtually every online retailer had canceled all of their U.S. preorders for TakaraTomy's upcoming Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust figure due to Marlboro parent company Phillip Morris requesting that they cease and desist all attempts to sell this figure to U.S. consumers. Well, this widespread canceling of orders apparently was enough for TakaraTomy to step in and try to regain all the market outlets that they lost over this figure, doing so by modifying the vehicle mode deco of the Exhaust figure. Now, Exhaust no long sports the complete chevrons of the Marlboro logo, instead having had the end tips of the giant red chevron removed from the front part of the hood that forms Exhaust's feet, the little green chevrons are now full rectangles, the red on the rear spoiler has been removed, and the white text towards the back of the vehicle is now black. Head through the space bridge to see pics of the new deco, courtesy of Tag Hobby.

    Italian website Terminal Video Italia has posted a drawning of a new toy for Robots in Disguise Sideswipe that has not been seen before. Given that the conversion process appears to involve three steps, it is very possible that this could be a figure of Sideswipe that belongs to the size class whose official name has still yet to be determined. It is either called "Hyperchange Heroes" or "Three-Step-Changers". But as for the image itself, head through the space bridge to see what you make of it.

    Previously, we received word of rumors circulating the Web about a Titan class Devastator giftset comprised of six Voyager class figures, as well as a rumor about the Protectobots receiving their own Generations Combiner Wars toys with a sixth new Protectobot named Rook. Well, several sources have looked into these claims and have come up with a lot of results, which have all been gathered together, and which even contain brand new rumors about several new RID toys and new reissues of G1 toys supposedly forthcoming. To see all that has turned up and whether all or some of it is true, head through the space bridge.

    A new update has been released by Rovio for the Angry Birds Transformers game called "Deceptihogs Revenge". This update unlocks new locations on Piggy Island and introduces new characters, features, and even accessories for the characters, many of which are rooted in Transformers lore such as Brawl's twin cannons that his toy had and Grimlock's crown from the Marvel Comics.

    Most intriguingly, Rovio has posted a new trailer for this update done in the style of an old VHS tape with 1980's animation, complete with a score done by Vince DiCola! Through the space bridge for the video.

    The way Hasbro phrases the summary of this video, "Steeljaw and his dastardly Decepticons..." implies that in Megatron's absence the new leader of 'the pack' may be this 'big bad wolf!". Interesting! And definitely worth watching!
    Who are the villains that the new team of Autobots will be tackling when Transformers: Robots in Disguise debuts on Cartoon Network this year? We're glad you asked! Check out an inside look at Steeljaw and his dastardly Decepticons!
