Thanks to Snakas for sharing with us a picture of some non-transforming Gashapon Q-Transformers figures that will be available in June of this year. This set of toys includes five different characters: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Jazz, Arcee, and Lockdown. According to information shared by Snakas, these guys will run for 300 yen, and will be released under the Takara-Tomy ARTS label (same as the recent decoy / eraser figures). They are said to be around the same size as the regular Q-Transformers, but they have traded transformation for designs closer to the animation, and five points of articulation – neck, both shoulders, and both elbows.

Takara-Tomy’s Q-Transformers line has undergone a revision for its 2016 lineup, according to this image from Takara-Tomy’s TF_PR Twitter account. The image shows a table displaying the upcoming releases – including new molds like Arcee – who now come in boxes rather than on cards, displaying the toys in their robot modes. We think this new packaging looks pretty sharp – take a look and decide for yourself.
Earlier today we received an announcement hinting towards a combination of Q-Transformers and the 20th Anniversary of Beast Wars. It was easy to jump to conclusions and assume we’d be seeing Beast Wars characters in the Q-Transformers styling. Unfortunately for now, it looks like we are not seeing merchandise in this form. Although our hopes were high, the announcement was rather a short video of Beast Wars history presented by Q-Transformers Arcee.
The short video can be found on Nicovideo, although we do not have a thorough translation at this time. Given the popularity of Q-Transformers, is it possible we’ll see Beast Wars introduced to the line during its 20th Anniversary celebration? Time will tell, head on over to the discussion thread to discuss!
Thanks to the Amazon Japan listing for this item, we now have pictures of the upcoming Q-Transformers QTF-09 Ratchet figure. This figure will be a reuse of the Q-Transformers Ironhide mold but will feature a new G1 Cartoon inspired head for our beloved Doctor. This figure will be available in March.
