Update: Even more listings and new images. Some figures show a great change in deco like 1-Step Changer Wheeljack.
The official stock images reveal some subtle changes in deco on each figure compared to their Hasbro counterparts, like additional insignias, darker colors, extra paint apps and some other subtle differences.
All figures are planned for release by October 28 this year, so we still have time to confirm if these changes will make into the final products. See all the mirrored images after the jump and then sound off on the 2005 Boards!
Each version, C-01 Convoy Toy version and C-02 Convoy Anime version, will include the same Laser Rifle, Energy Axe & Matrix of Leadership accessories, but featuring some different pain apps.
- Laser rifle in C-02 will have a bit of gray to match the cartoon colors.
- Energy Axe in C-01 is made of shiny orange clear plastic, while the one included with C-02 is made of clear soft orange plastic as in the cartoon.
- The Matrix of Leadership in C-01 is gold chromed while the Matrix in C-02 is fully painted as seen in the G1 series.

While back in 2021 we learned that another Transformers movie was in the works with Angel Manuel Soto as director with the intention to keep the plot outside the Bayverse. We haven’t had any remarkable update so far, but Angel Manuel Soto was interviewed by Collider.com and Blue Beetle’s director shared some information about this Transformers project.
“I pitched them an idea. I read a script, I didn’t like it, and I pitched them a whole different idea, and they liked it, but then it was too late. So they told me, “Yeah, we cannot do your idea, but we like your idea, so we want you to write the idea and then direct it.” So, we’ve been in that process, but the writers’ strike happened. [Laughs] It will be different, it will be different.”
It seems we will have to wait some more time to finally see a real update on this movie. Read the full interview here or a text only version after the break. Let us know your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
Courtesy of 2005 Boards member Zodiac1968340 for sharing in our boards new images of Yolopark AMK Mini G1 Transformers Model Kits & AMK Series Rise Of The Beasts Wave 2 prototypes which were on exhibit at the Taipei Comic Exhibition.
The AMK Mini is a 10-cm tall model kit line of classic G1 characters: Starscream, Grimlock, Soundwave, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron. These mini-figures should come pre-painted and pre-assembled as with the main bigger scale AMK Series moldel kits.
We also have new images of the AMK Series Rise Of The Beasts Wave 2 Scourge, Cheetor and Rhinox. They will be 22, 16, and 20 cm tall respectively. We also have some details about each figure. Scourge will have an articulated right hand, removable mask and his blade, Rhinox will also have articulated hands, and Cheetor will come with non-articulated hand like the figures in Wave 1 and he seems to have a removable mask.
