With a mere hour until the Fan First Friday event on the Hasbro Facebook page, we have some potential reveals ahead of time thanks to Planet Iacon on Facebook. Two rumored two-packs, both expected to be Amazon exclusives, have been shown and they’re both very exciting. First is Ironhide and Prowl with Ironhide apparently being an extensive retool of his Siege counterpart and Prowl is a retool of the upcoming Earthrise Deluxe Smokescreen figure. Second is Dirge & Ramjet both being retools of the Earthrise voyager Starscream mold. Will both of these two packs be revealed in the next hour? We’ll see shortly! In the meantime, enjoy what may be a sneak peak!
Thanks to 2005 board members Un_Chakal and The Kup for sharing with us in hand images of their recent acquisitions of the recently revealed and upcoming Generations Selects Exhaust and Greasepit. These images reveal both figures’ alternate modes. While our first Greasepit looked as if he would be a slight remold of Earthrise Ironworks, these new images reveal his alternate configuration with new parts. This combination makes a pretty good gas station mode just like the G1 Micromaster base. Exhaust is shown in several pictures showing his sleek vehicle mode as well as a comparison to Siege Megatron.
Both figures are looking sharp. Will you be adding them to your collection? Sound off on the boards!
Takara Tomy Mall has updated their website to announce a new entry in the Masterpiece series. MP-39+ will be Spinout, a red version of Sunstreaker and an homage to the very first Diaclone toy! The Takara Tomy mall lists this as a new character “Assault Rescuer Spinout”. The headsculpt of this toy will be the same as used with the previously released MP-42 Cordon.
Shown in the images on the website are bot, vehicle and comparisons with Masterpiece Sideswipe for double red Lamborghini action!
Spinout is due for a November 2020 release. Check out more images and join the discussion on the 2005 Boards!
Thanks to fellow fan Ben Yee over at BWTF for sharing these in hand images of the new Transformers Cyberverse Deluxe Wave 1 figures. This “Deluxe” Wave will be a step up in complexity over the Cyberverse Warrior figures. These figures will feature more articulation, blast effect pieces and a Build-A-Figure piece. The Build-A-Figure will be the bartender Maccadams and he will be split into eight pieces that you can collect over the first two waves. These images confirm the first two waves with the cross sell image on the back of the packaging. Seen here, and composing wave 1 will be Bumblebee, Optimus, Megatron and Shockwave. Wave 2 is confirmed to be Rodimus, Grimlock, Arcee and a new character named “Thunderhowl”.
These images are courtesy of fellow collector Kenneth Y who found these at Hong Kong retail. The figures are retailing for around $22.87 US dollars and expected to be released next month.
Update: Optimus Prime in-hand images added. A very impressive and articulated mold.
Last week, our sponsors added listings that revealed a new Masterpiece Black Convoy was incoming. Snakas has revealed some additional information on the listing as well as provided a low-res possible first look. As most fans surmised, this continues to appear to be a repaint of the recently released MP-44. A full reveal and confirmation on this is expected next week. Additional information confirmed on this figures release is that it will not come with a trailer and it will set you back 28,000 yen.

Mastermind Creations has updated their Facebook page with final product images and information on their next entry in their Reformatted line, R-43 Mors aka Helex. This figure is also the next figure needed to complete Mastermind Creations’ take on the very popular Decepticon Justice Division team from IDW’s More Than Meets The Eye comic. Seen in the photos here are robot mode and vehicle mode. This character has a fantastic alternate mode as he turns into a mobile smelting pool tank. So he can dissolve traitorous Decepticons while on the go.
Mastermind Creations states on their Facebook post that the figure will include the following:
2. Additional hands
5. Bio card
You can preorder Mors at our sponsors below. He’s due for release in March of 2020!
The official Transformers instagram account has updated their stories and revealed a handful of upcoming Target Exclusives set for the Fall. First up, and widely already deduced, is the Siege Rainmakers three pack. This three pack has already been showing up in stores, so be sure to keep an eye out for it if you want to bolster your seeker army. Speaking of seekers, they have given us our first look at Slipstream! Slipstream will be getting a Warrior class figure in the Cyberverse line as one of these Target Exclusives. Finally, the Elite Class Spark Armor Cheetor (who has armor that transformers from a battleship) is confirmed as a Target exclusive as well.
You can check out screenshots of these reveals after the break.
Planet Iacon on Facebook has shared pics of a pair of Studio Series for our enjoyment today. First up is SS-46 Studio Series Dropkick. The second version of the character in the Studio Series line. However, this version gives us a more onscreen faithful look as well as his muscle-car alternate mode. The pics included show various angles in both modes, but no comparison shots. Second, we have SS-35 Leader Class Dark Of The Moon Optimus Prime. This release is the previous use of the Optimus Prime mold, which was released as a voyager. Now, it’s coming packaged in the leader class assortment but includes his trailer. The trailer turns into his flight gear and his weapons ring platform. You can check out all the image after the break.

Well, it took awhile, but we finally have our first look at what this team looks like in their intended combined form! Last year, we saw the release of Voyager Elita-1, along with Deluxes Nova-star and Moonracer, in the Power of the Primes Generations line. After the line concluded, fans were left wondering what happened to the other two limb components? Thanks to the Amazon exclusive release of Greenlight and the upcoming Generations Select release of Lancer, we finally get to see the combined mode of all five female Autobots – Orthia! These images come courtesy of the Gen Zero Facebook group. Also shown are comparison shots of the whole team together in vehicle and robot mode. The team looks great together, showing off a variety of color. There’s even an additional photo of the group with Siege Chromia (whose mold uses similar engineering sans a combiner port).
Update: Even more images thanks toたごーる (@tagoal) on Twitter
