Ooh, that seems to nail the animation model for robot mode a lot better than the other attempts I've seen. Hope this turns out to be serious

That Megatron looks ace. Would be great if it is official, but even if it's another 3P one, it looks hands down the best attempt so far!

New sale thread added with a range of Transformers including Masterpiece, Botcon, CHUG, RID, Movies etc.

Looking for MP-11T Thundercracker and MP-9 Rodimus v2 (Takara version with as few QC issues as possible).

Blurry photo of wave 3 deluxes. All interesting but no actual Headmaster characters.

So Arturo Milomir, who according to some Google Fu does magazine scans for Tformers just changed his profile picture to the attached...

Take that for what it's worth.

Doublecross and Triggerhappy actually pretty sexy, shame Hasbro have forgotten how to do a car mode that isn't utter shit rather than this vague cheapo Armada Hotshot thing they all seem to turn into now. Might keep an eye out for these things if they actually hit retail soemwhere at a half sensible price and depending on whether the actual finished product looks much like those.

It's only tangentially related to Transformers, but it looks like we're getting a Death's Head II figure in the Hasbro's Marvel Legends 6" range next year.

Probably part of 2017's Guardians of the Galaxy wave. Rumour suggests as the Build-a-Figure, but I'm not convinced on that score.

Anyone seen the pics/vids of the Product Line stuff
https://youtu.be/pNho2w6wbgY
https://youtu.be/86B-5hETik8

Titans Return.....Perceptor looks ok, hopefully he'll retain his tank alt mode(from the look of the molded treads on the insides of his legs, it would appear so), Kickback looks fab...a deffo want, Broadside(heavy A3 retool) looks ok...although they didn't show off his jet mode...but we saw the jet kibble on him + we're supposed to be getting Tidal Wave outa that? i'm not liking the base mode for Overlord! looks too fan alt mode, dunno who that TM Swoop/Scattershot character is?

RID those Duocons/connectobots or whateveryoucallthem look interesting

dunno why they went with the Bayformer Stealth Mode gimmick yet again? with Bee, Sideswipe & Strongarm(granted this time they actually have bot modes).

The neatest thing about those pics is that Broadside seems to have very, very tiny versions of the CW Aerialbots sculpted onto him in carrier mode!

Picture quality is kinda bad so it's hard to see too many fine details, but Repgunus and Fangry both look ultra-cute. Broadside is neat-looking. Kickback seems a bit too spindly in some pics, but in the packaged shots he seems fine. I didn't even realize they were making Brawn, but he seems nice. Hot Rod does nothing for me. Getaway looks awful. Doublecross, Triggerhappy and Perceptor all look promising. Laser Prime seems kinda m'eh. Sixshot looks way worse than the early pics did, and I doubt he's going to leave too many Hexatrons homeless. And I can't even tell what's up with Black Shadow because the pics are so bad.

[EDIT] It looks like Death's Head II has single-jointed elbows, so I'd wager the BAF rumours are true. I can't remember the last time a single-packed male figure didn't have double elbows.

It will be nice to complete the Legends Insecticons with Kickback, however he turns out. Fingers crossed one day they do a set of three with consistent decos too.

I'm assuming Blackshadow will be retooled as Overlord? That would explain the odd setup.

Sixshot looks even more of a brick than he did in previous photos. The head suffers from the Titan Master gimmick as well. Sure he'll be a fun toy, but I'll stick with Hexatron.

I hope Takara paint those mini Aerialbots on Broadside. That may convince me to buy one, even though I still struggle with the G1 non-Headmaster Titan Master thing.

Getaway is even lazier than I expected - they've barely bothered to do anything, just slap different paint on Chromedome irrespective of sculpted detail.

Brawn is interesting, although I still love my CHUG Legends one.

Other stuff ranges from 'meh' (Doublecross) to awful (Octane Prime).

Perceptor and Broadside make great thumbnails - then you see the hollow limbs. And I just cannot buy a toy called "Twinferno".

That Broadside jet mode. :lol:

Black Shadow is definitely looking like an Overlord pretool, from that. But is the tank even a part of his robot mode?
