#BotbotsChallenge! Series 1 Listings Complete in TFDb
61 toys, randomly distributed in 40 packages ranging from blind packs to 5 & 8-packs w/ dozens of duplicate and triplicates... Each has been carefully cataloged and organized, so you can readily see what toys come with which set, including blind packs.
It's no small task, and taken me awhile, but series 1 is finally complete and I can move on to Series 2 - which is just starting to reach stores now. I'd better hurry, series 3 is already set to release this fall. Along with a number of other updates in the 2019 #Transformers Section, you'll find every toy photos of each toy and links to others and more.
Special thanks to Hasbro for the #FreeSamples and info.

No one saw this coming! Revealed earlier today at Tokyo Toy Show, Takara pulled one out of left field, a Masterpiece toy based on the Maximal Leader, from Beast Wars II in Japan! Following the current trend, you’ll notice the alt mode is an accurate reflection of his appearances in the cel-animated cartoon series lion. Who wants in on this beauty?!

What do you get when you combine 3 Deluxe Refraktor figures? Usually a really cool camera, although in this case, I like to think of it as a huge Cybertronain cannon of some kind but that's not all you get. You can combine the individual Spaceship modes into one combined Super Spaceship! A very cool fan mode. Refraktor just got that much cooler.
Greetings fellow Transformers fans, I come to you with a nifty little "discovery" if you will, by yours truly. Titans Return Titan Class Trypticon has a space behind its head that can accommodate WFC-SIEGE Deluxe Class Brunt. This is not in the instructions and it is not official nor intended by any means, merely a happy coincidence....or is it?
Not to be confused with the other G1 inspired version of the character coming later this year in #WarForCybertron #Siege, the Masterpiece is a more cartoon accurate version of the original Masterpiece. He was also unveiled earlier today at the Takara display at Tokyo Toy Show.
What does everyone think of the new “cartoon themed” versions of the G1 Masterpiece line?
Providing confirmation of previous leaks and rumors, we get our very first look at the newest versions of these fan favorite characters, being brought back, to play a role in the #WarForCybertron trilogy.
As anticipated, Ratchet is a retool of Ironhide including a beautiful new head sculpt. It is believed this toy will be released as a Walgreens exclusive later this fall. Bluestreak includes a cartoon inspired deco and accessories. His method of distribution is, as yet, unknown.
What a day for news!

The full Takara display also provides us our first good looks at Impactor, Smokescreen and several Micro Masters we haven’t seen in plastic yet. I think these look great, it’s a great time to be a #Transformers fan!
Hasbro's highly anticipated Transformers/Ghostbusters Crossover ECTO-1 based ECTOTRON is now in-stock and ready to ship from our sponsor TFsource. Pick yours up from the following link today! http://bit.ly/TFsource_Transformers-Ghostbusters_ECTO-1_Ectotron
More photos coming in from Tokyo Toy Show give us our first look at the toy in-hand. Up until now all we’ve seen have been the CG renders. As usual the actual toy looks so much better versus the virtual mock-up!
Via display at Tokyo Toy Show, we get our first look at Skalor, a Piranacon combiner teaser and more looks at #GenerationsSelects Voyager Snaptrap! Now gone are our fears that we’d only get the team leader, based on a snapper turtle. Although we still don’t know whether we’ll get all 6 team members, it’s safe to assume we’ll get a complete limbed combiner!

Hasbro Facebook Site confirms yesterday's leak out of China. The next fan vote will be between these 4 bots, according to their official Facebook page. I wonder if "ALL 4 SHOULD BECOME #WarForCybertron TOYS" is an option?
"Can you identify the Decepticons shown below? Share your guesses in the comments! Once we reveal the identities of each shadowy figure, you’ll have the opportunity to decide which becomes a War for Cybertron figure in 2020."
TakaraTomy released new detailed images of MP-47 Masterpiece Hound this week! Pre-order this sweet figure today from our sponsor BigBadToyStore at the following link! http://bit.ly/BBTS_MP-47_Masterpiece_Hound
Name the Decepticon?!
A possible glimpse into next year’s “Fan Choice vote” characters options for toys in Siege, or whatever comes next, possible leak on Weibo (Chinese social media). For all we know this could also be a fan hoax or exclusive toy for China/Japanese markets, so take this wit a grain of salt (and healthy dose of skepticism!)
“Can you recognize who the four Decepticons are in the next picture? Come and share your guess boldly! Once we have released the identity of these mysterious characters, you have the chance to decide which character will be out of the 2020 WFC PRODUCT LINE NOW! #CHINA "
Looks like some beautifully stylized Sharkticon/Gnaw, a Battlecharger (Runamuck/Runabout), Needlenose and Skrapnel (Shrapnel) to us. If any of this proves to be true, who would you vote for???
I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but personally, I feel like the Masterpiece toy line is best suited for the characters of live action movies and Beast Wars. Probably because each of these was based on CGI which doesn't change appearance or shape from show-to-show or even frame to frame in fiction. Whereas G1, as beloved as it is to others and me, their stories were told in cell animation which looked subtly different from show to show, even scene to scene. So I find these G1 characters in toy form much more palatable to various forms of artistic interpretation ranging from WFC:Siege to the Unicron Trilogy...
Ironhide is an interesting case-study of live action film characters, because although his appearance deviated from G1 original more than any other (TF1) Autobot (Ratchet was at least a rescue vehicle of some sort...) Nonetheless, he still felt as though he was written true to character and somehow still manages to look great as a big, bad@$$ black pickup truck. Let's all face it for a moment, he wouldn't look nearly as good as a red toaster fan!
Truth be told, my pictures don't do this toy justice. It's big Masterpiece scale and all that built-in diecast makes him feel heavy and high quality. Fun to transform and absolutely gorgeous in each mode. This toy, finally provides us with the be-all and end-all definitive Ironhide toys from the live action films.
We've added a few photos (more to come) to the 2018 Transformers Section of this beautiful MPM which is absolutely worth his weight in diecast! -- really saying something, considering how much of it there is!

I’m still using orange Thrust/Dreadwing, and man I love this deck! Last attack of the game I dealt 24 more damage than needed! But the reason I made this post was to ask you guys if there were any big changes in the future with wave 3 in this deck that could improve it?
