Laserbeak, eject! Operation: observation.
One of Soundwave’s most iconic minions, Laserbeak returns to the Transformers line as a part of the second assortment of Titans Return Legends class figures. A redeco of the Buzzsaw released in the Combiner Wars line, Laserbeak is a nicely done redeco of the more famous condor Decepticon spy. The black and red deco really brings this one to life and looks better on the mold than the overpowering yellow on Buzzsaw. The tablet mode also has some great details which I found really pleasing – particularly the idea that this version of Laserbeak has spyware loaded up ready to spam Teletraan I with annoying pop-up ads, all while enjoying his “Playlist – Work Mix”, which has the icon of the original Generation 1 cassette. Overall, a great and fun addition to the Titans Return Legends size class.
Site sponsors Robot Kingdom have posted on their Facebook some images of the collector coin that comes with the Asian market release of Lynxmaster, the newest addition to Takara-Tomy’s Unite Warriors line. The collector coin features a rougher, more feral look than your usual Asian market collector coin, reflecting the beastial nature of Lynxmaster. The packaging the coin comes in is modeled after the chest of Lynxmaster, a cool touch much like several of the other collector coins accompanying the other Asian market releases of the Unite Warriors toys. Check out the images attached to this post.
Takara-Tomy’s @TF_PR Twitter account has shared some in-hand images of the Transformers Adventure version of Autobot Ratchet from the Robots in Disguise line. The Japanese release of the old Autobot medic has lots of lovely paint app details including the taillights on his chest, painted toes, and vents on his cheeks. It’s a great looking deco – check out the images and see for yourself.
3A, who have made a goodly number of high-end figures based on the Transformers movie and have upcoming Generation 1 themed offerings, have teased on their Instagram that they will be offering figures based on Transformers the Last Knight and Transformers Age of Extinction. They’ve only shown the logo for The Last Knight, so there’s no telling what they have in mind – but our money would be on a high-end version of Megatron’s new look, and possibly Grimlock or Lockdown. Watch this space for more news as this one develops.
Care of Firestorm on Ozformers, we have a report that the Robots in Disguise Three-Step Changer Bisk has arrived at Australian retail. Australia is now the second country to get Bisk, following his earlier release in the UK. He was found at a Target in Victoria in Australia – so the question now is, where will the Decepticon gamer strike next? Will he up up down down left right left right claw claw his way to US retail soon? Watch this space for more sightings news.
