While not traditional transforming bots like the mints revealed by Takara Tomy, Revoltech is jumping back in the Transformers game with a new release of Optimus Prime under their Amazing Yamaguchi brand. This is a hyper stylized, super articulated action figure. They’ve done many prior to this for Marvel and DC Comics characters, but now Optimus is getting the same treatment. Revoltech Optimus Prime was well received when he came out years ago, so it’s nice to see another hit the market in this updated fashion. Read on to check the pics courtesy of @toratora264!
Takara Tomy Mall has put up a listing for MP-18+ Streak, aka Bluestreak. This is a cartoon inspired deco of the original release featuring a more matte paint job, new faces, and effect parts that can plug into his gun or shoulder canons coming directly from the show. He’s a limited release through the direct Takara sales website but many of our sponsors should get copies of it below, keep an eye out for pre-orders there. MP18+ Bluestreak is retailing for 9180 Yen (about $83 US) and is due to ship in Late July 2019. Read on to check out all the pretty pics!

It’s been a busy couple weeks here for me gallery wise. Three different 3A pieces dropped, along with four Masterpiece series figures, all things I generally dig. Due to the holidays and all this awesomeness dropping so close together, we continue the galleries here into January! On the Masterpiece front we had MP-29+ Shockwave, MP-36+ Megatron, MP-09 Rodimus Prime Reissue (gallery soon) and today’s MPM-6 Ironhide. MPM-6 dropped a bit ago, and was floating around via leaks way before that, but he’s finally fully out and ready for MPM collector shelves. As a figure, he does what he’s supposed to do, look like Ironhide from the Movieverse in both modes pretty faithfully. There are some engineering issues that hinder posing a bit, but you can get him into most poses you need and so long as you don’t bump him or walk in your room too hard, he’ll stay there just fine 🙂 Once posed, he looks great, the best Movieverse version of Ironhide yet. I’m just glad he gave Carl from Aqua Teen his sweatpants back.
He’s in stock now and shipping from TFSource!

Bluefin Brands sent through word that they are officially opening pre-orders for the next round of Flame Toys Transformers collectibles. Flame Toys produce several different lines of non-transforming figures including their Kuro Kara Kuri high end line, and their Furai model kits. The press release let’s us know that Kuro Kara Kuri Star Saber will be dropping in the US via US retailers in May, and Furai Bumblebee will hit in March. Read on for official information and pics of each, and make sure to hit our sponsors below to pick up your copies State side!
“Peace through tyranny.” Masterpiece MP-36+ is out in the wild and today we are taking a look at the chromed out version of mighty Megatron! This is a repaint of the original MP-36 figure with inspiration from the original toy. He’s chromed out and comes with a new chest and head to better represent the 80’s classic. MP-36 is one of the best Transformers I’ve handled in recent memory, and this version is just as good. I didn’t think I would be into this as I prefer the cartoon look for my MP, but once in hand and in robot mode, with the gun barrel hanging off his hip in that classic box art pose, it’s really striking. A great companion piece worthy of doubling up.
He’s in stock now and shipping from TFSource!

Thanks to 3A we have an early copy of their DLX Bumblebee from the Transformers: Bumblebee movie! This is their first smaller scale figure, measuring in at 8 inches tall. It uses their new die-cast skeleton framework, has 55 points of articulation, sculpt is direct from the movie so it’s as close to screen accurate as you can get. Paint and weathering is head to toe crazy good, it makes you double take even in normal light on your shelf it’s that good. To cap things off it comes with an alternate battle mask head, an extra gun arm, 3 sets of hands, folded and unfolded door wings. Oh and the eyes light up via LED on both heads.
3A let us know that the first batch of these will be shipping out at the end of January. A second batch will go out in Q2 2019 after Chinese New Year.
If you are looking to pick him up, make sure to check our sponsors below. You won’t want to miss this guy if you dig the Movieverse and Bee in particular.
We’ve run Bumblebee through the motions, showing off his entire range of motion and display stand poses in a simple clear format, and then some fancy pants shots at the end to really show how good he looks in best case scenarios.

I’ve left some thoughts in the discussion thread, feel free to ask any questions you have about the figure inside and I’ll try to answer!
