Toys R Us Japan have updated their listings for the Transformers Movie anniversary series with color images of the Grimlock and Strafe releases for the line. These two were previously shown as grey models even when we saw the rest in color – and we can now report that Grimlock will be sporting a movie accurate palette of greys and greenish greys. Strafe looks more or less as he did on the original release, with a healthy amount of blue. Check out the images of both toys attached to this post.

Takara-Tomy Mall have updated their site with a new banner teasing a new entry into the Unite Warriors line. The silhouette shows Bruticus, and the file name says “TFUWEX_Baldigus”, indicating that we just might be seeing Baldigus from Car Robots, better the Decepticon combiner Ruination from the original Robots in Disguise, in the Unite Warriors line like many of us have wished for.
An official reveal is teased for 25 October, so get ready, because Ruination is coming!
Thanks to Type-R over on the 2005 Boards, we have a new look at the Kabaya DX Gattai sets. All pull from later Japanese eras and seem to be reissued or updated versions of previous releases. Included are Super Ginrai and God Bomber, Star Saber, Victory Leo, Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber & Roadfire. Check the images after the break!
Thanks to PoweredConvoy & Type-R of the 2005 Boards for alerting us to a new in-hand shot of Takara-Tomy’s Legends Super Ginrai courtesy of @TF_pr on Twitter. In it we see the differences from the Hasbro Powermaster Optimus Prime version with the alternate paint applications and new sculpting. Check him out posing up a storm with Star Saber and Cerebros after the break!
Thank to the Robotkingdom Facebook page, we’ve received a great set of new in hand images of the Asia Exclusive Shattered Glass Masterpiece Optimus Prime!

If you’re a fan of past BotCon concepts and the stunning MP-10 mold, this one is definitely for you. Check it out!
Takara-Tomy Mall has added official images of all eleven Transformers live action Movie anniversary figures revealed so far. The images show more clearly the figures revealed previously – including confirmation that the version of Starscream being offered will be a non-tattooed version of the Revenge of the Fallen Voyager. They’re all looking pretty sharp and nicely detailed in the deco department – check out all the new images attached to this post.
Care of Autobase Aichi, we can share some official images of Takara-Tomy’s Transformers Legends Lioconvoy. Lioconvoy is the Japanese version of Titans Return Alpha Trion, with a deco inspired by the 1998 Beast Wars Second Cybertron commander. Lioconvoy is looking very sharp – check out the images attached to this story.
Via Takara-Tomy’s @TF-PR account, we’ve got a new image of the upcoming Transformers Legends release of Titans Return Chromedome. Chromedome played a central role in the Japanese Headmasters series, and it is the animation model of that series which is captured in the headsculpt of this version of Chromedome. He also comes with a repainted version of the accessory that comes with Titans Return Nightbeat. Check out the new image attached to this post.
Takara-Tomy’s @TF_PR Twitter account has shared a new image of one of the upcoming new releases in the Unite Warriors Megatronia set. Team leader Megaempress is depicted in this pic holding her pickaxe weapon aloft in a menacing and commanding pose, which gives a good look at her excellent deco which homages Megatron. Check it out attached to this post.
Thanks to site sponsor, TFsource, we have the next reveal in Takara’s Legends line, Leo Prime! Leo Prime is a repaint of Titans Return Alpha Trion in a glorious Beast Wars II color scheme representing Lio Convoy! The figure also sports a new Optimus head too, but it’s unclear at the moment if this is a new Titan Master head, or a reuse of the Takara Legends Ginrai head or Sentinel Prime head. Leo Prime/Leo Convoy is due for release in February 2017.
Additionally, TFsource mentions in their e-mail that more Takara Legends preorders are on the way, but this is the first. You can check out the pics after the break!
