Transformers Spaltoon

It was Autobots vs. Decepticons on the recently concluded Nintendo Splatoon Transformers Splatfest and the mighty Decepticons led by Megatronus has emerged victorious.

“While the valiant Autobots took the popular vote with 58% of the tally, the evil Decepticons prevailed in 56% of the total matches, resulting in a final combined score of 266 for the Decepticons and a meager 234 for the Autobots.”

You can check out more images from the event thanks to 2005 Boards Member excelhedge on the thread associated with this news post.

All Hail The Decepticons!

KFC Fader and Rover 01

Keith’s Fantasy Club has released images of what looks like final product images of their cassette tapes Rover and Fader. Coming via 幸福teddytao on weibo, these figures have been on the roadmap for a while now and many fans have eagerly been waiting for these homages of Eject and Soundwave’s Autoscout Drone.

Chances are these will be released in September, we’ll update you if we hear anything different. Hit the discussion link below to join in on the talk!

Optimus Prime with Jazz Sideswipe and Fixit

We’ve got another gallery update for you today, friends – and this time, we’re bringing not one, not two, but four awesome galleries showcasing toys from the Robots in Disguise line. Our four new galleries are:

Optimus Prime – the leader of the Autobots is reimagined in the Warrior size class as a fun, long-legged Warrior toy!

Jazz – Optimus Prime’s close friend brings a simple yet fun transformation, a cool weapon, and one of the most unintentionally funny bits of card artwork of recent years!

Sideswipe – arguably the most complicated of all the Warrior class toys, Sideswipe shows us the very best of the size class, though he’s perhaps less fun for the increased fiddliness and shoulders that don’t peg in.

Fixit – a cool little member of the Legion size class, the diminutive Fixit is a great addition to the scale! He’s one of the best small toys ever made!

That’s not all, though, because we have a bonus update to one of our earlier galleries:

Strongarm – we’ve added over two dozen new pics to our existing gallery showing Strongarm as upgraded using the Reprolabels customizing set! This makes Strongarm more show accurate, so be sure to check out the updated gallery to see how she looks!

Open the links above to check out this set of cool gallery updates!
