Japanese site Hobby Stock has huge amount of images of many new upcoming products from TakaraTomy. Among these are several Transformers products from the Masterpiece, Disney Label, Encore, and Henkei lines, as well as the new Chrono Label toyline.

First up are images of the new TF: Chrono Label line. This toyline consists of a few (currently anonymous) Transformer robots that turn into actual working watches! This concept harkens back to the days of a old Kronoform line from many years ago.

Next are some more shots of the gorgeous Masterpiece Grimlock figure, followed by shots of the Disney Label Mickey Mouse figures. Both the colored toy, and the Monochrome toy.

After that, we are given a look at the upcoming releases in the Encore line. These releases include the Bruticus set; a set of Ramhorn, Steeljaw, Ratbat, and Slugfest; and a set of of Rewind, Eject, Buzzsaw, and Ravage.

Lastly, we get some beautiful shots of some of the upcoming Henkei releases. These include Ratchet; Inferno; DINOBOT!; Hot Rod (Hot Shot); the set of Beachcomber, Gong (Brawn), and Cliff (Cliffjumper, redeco of Legends Bumblebee); the set of Warpath, Adams (Cosmos), and Wheelie; Alert (Red Alert), and Smokescreen.

Red Alert had better get a US release too; and I'm surprised that they didn't recolor Brawn as Outback. Which begs the question: If Beachcomber, Warpath, Cosmos, Wheelie, and Brawn are released in another scale, will it be Scout, or Deluxe like Bumblebee was in the old Classics? And will we see a newly-tooled Cliffjumper??????

Henkei Dinobot looks great. So does Smokescreen. I want the Henkei versions of both instead of teh Hasbro versions.

Dinobot kinda looks stoned

No, Henkei Cliff(jumper) is a straight redeco of Legends BB. No new head, sadly. The reason only he was changed to another character is because there already was a Henkei Bumble(bee).

The Henkei Minibots will be released in three figure sets. The Minibot Attack Team consists of Beachcomber, Gong (Brawn), and Cliff (Cliffjumper). The Minibot Spy Team consists of Warpath, Adams (Cosmos), and Wheelie.

Dinobot may be the first time I get the Takara version over the Hasbro version. We'll have to see what the robot mode is like, and the distribution of chrome on the figure.

Does anyone have insight on where they pulled these colors from? I mean, the 10th anniversary version was odd, but this is far worse.

Oh Dinobot, no amount of interchangable faction-symbol or colloration can save you from the terrible mold you have been subjected to.

...clearly...

Hotshot I want. I just wonder if jolt is a fig or just a part. Grimlock looks awesome. Hasbro should so recolor him G2 style to give insentives to buy both. I'm really behind on encore, having not even got the center of my collecting (seekers), but Bruticus I'm amazed and joyous to see. Perhaps a king Poseidon will come into being as well to sit next to my vintage one. Takara Tomy is doing very well. And on that note, just for making some great molds to begin with, Kudos to hasbro too (if we're lucky we'll get a universe bruticus in ruination mold). Its a good day to be a transformers fan.
On an unreasonably unrelated note, does TakaraTomy make Code Geass merchandise?

Jolt is a fully new mold transforming poseable Mini-Con. But he doesn't unlock any features, sadly.
