Toy News: New "Transformers Adventure" photos released

Takara Tomy Mall has posted several new listings for "Transformers Adventure" figures! These show off the Japanese versions of several figures released outside of Japan. Some of these figures have significantly different decos from their "Robots in Disguise" counterparts, especially the Mini-Cons who have many more paint applications on them and in some cases, totally different colored plastic. The "Battle Packs" now feature Mini-Cons that are partners for the larger robot rather than being a "versus" set.

Toy News: KRE-O Battle Changers Starscream & "Robots in Disguise" Hero Mashers found at T.J. Maxx

While making my toy hunting rounds today I came across a few unexpected figures at a T.J. Maxx in Linden, NJ! First up is Battle Changer Starscream! While the other Battle Changers were released at various stores like Marshall's and T.J. Maxx during the holidays, the wave with Starscream had not appeared in my area until now! After that I found another surprise: "Robots in Disguise" Hero Mashers! While these were shown at Toy Fair 2015, they never saw mass release in the United States so it was great to see them. All the figures were $5.99 USD.
