Toy News: San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Devastator revealed!

The folks over at Planet Iacon posted images last night of an upcoming exclusive Titan Class Devastator boxed set! Right now it is presumed this is a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive (though no official confirmation has yet been released). This version sports chrome parts (check out Mixmaster's mixing drum) and what appear to be tampograph details based on the G1 Devastator toy! The box features exclusive artwork and a cover that resembles Scrapper's shovel. I can't wait to get this guy and review him!

Toy News: "Unite Warriors" Deluxe Groove CONFIRMED

Twitter user @tagoal has posted photos from a Japanese Hobby magazine featuring several exciting upcoming releases in Japan. Among them is the upcoming "Unite Warriors" Defensor along with a prototype of Deluxe Groove! No word yet on whether this will see a release outside Japan, but I am optimistic that at the very least, import shops will carry this figure. Also pictured in these photos are new "Transformers Adventure" releases including Cosmos, Powerglide and a police car themed redeco of Warrior Class Steeljaw.
