C/o Loopaza Mega Store, magazine scans provide our first good look at the upcoming Masterpiece in Beast mode and some very cool new poses/articulation of the toy as a robot.
Still no word on what it’ll cost, but based on size comparison photos next to MP Optimus Primal and Dinobot, we can conclude this toy won’t be cheap! Frankly, we must have it, no matter the cost, ...YES!
Oh BTW, scans also provide a few images of the Takara versions of studio series movie figures, which Seem to be identical to their North America Hasbro counterparts.
3rd party company Master Made announced their upcoming super-deformed styled city-bot; SDT-05 Odin is a triple changer that stands 8.25 inches tall in robot mode. His alternate modes are a spacecraft and a battle station. Includes die-cast parts and a pilot figure armed with a sword.

Came across this fun collection of images on Weibo, including all the original G1 combiner teams, Japan G1 Exclusives, and modern iterations from Unite Warriors, Combiner Wars & Power of the Primes. There are a few notable omissions, such as, the as yet incomplete fem-bot team formed by Elita-1, and others formed by Starscream and Inferno... but it’s otherwise a reasonably comprehensive list.
This led me to wonder, among all those teams who have not yet received a modern upgrade, who would you most like to see Hasbro/Takara take on next? Furthermore, who is your favorite among those that we’ve received so far?
For me, I’d really love to see the Seacons get a modern upgrade! - (But don’t give me any of that HashtagSeaconsBeforeUnicron nonsense @BKilby or the rest of your Radio Free Cybertron crew! #UnicronBeforeAll ! ~)
As for my favorite so far, the Aerialbots are tops for me. However, while I counted myself among the G1’ers who didn’t really need a Dinobot Combiner, that team and his combined form Volcanicus has impressed more than anticipated, I’m surprised to find so very near the top of my list!
Incidentally, we don’t know the artists of these work. If you do, please pass along the info that we may gladly provide proper artist cred!

“Wreck & Rule! They’ve been beaten up, torn apart, betrayed, and had their sins revealed. The few remaining Wreckers are more lost and lonelier than they’ve ever been, which makes it the perfect time for them to come under re from an anti-Cybertronian campaigner and an old foe! Remember them fondly, because this is the Requiem of the Wreckers.”
