in Beast Wars the Second, Collector's Club Exclusive, Deluxe, Maximal, News, Timelines

Fortunately for Cybertron, he has both in abundance! Today's review brings you a look at Lio Convoy from the Transformers Collector's Club!

Toy News: New "Transformers Adventure" photos including Lockdown and the Insecticons

TF Yuki is at it again! It appears the Takara offices have received a new batch of "Transformers Adventure" packaged samples and he has shared a bunch of new photos including an army of Insecticons, Lockdown in package and One Step Changer Bumblebee. The Bumblebee is really quite a dramatic departure from his US counterpart, showing of a ton more paint applications than his "Robots in Disguise" release. The Insecticons sport the "Adventure" symbols on their chests while Lockdown gets a box instead of a card due to his size.

Toy News: "Robots in Disguise" Super Bumblebee sighting on East Coast

On my regular toy hunt tonight I came across "Super" Bumblebee at the Toys R Us in Iselin, NJ. Super Bumblebee is a gigantic version of Bumblebee (larger than a Supreme Class figure) with an extremely simple transformation and relatively hollow parts. It features lights in the eyes and several phrases (some from the TV show). It is not however the voice from the show but rather a substitute. This item retails for $49.99 (I had a coupon and wound up getting 25% off). This was sighted on the West Coast last week but this is the first I've seen it on the East Coast.

Toy News: "Unite Warriors" Ultra Prime reveal

With all the focus on traditional Combiner characters like Superion and Menasor in the "Unite Warriors" line one Combiner has been in the background: Ultra Prime. Though not his official name in Japan (yet) this Combiner formed from four Autobot limbs (likely retools of the Stunticons) and the Voyager class Optimus Prime figure has now been revealed as an item that will join Superion, Defensor and Menasor in the "Unite Warriors" toy line!

Toy News: New photos of "Unite Warriors" Superion

Thanks to the ever awesome TF Yuki, fans now have new images of "Unite Warriors" Superion to drool over. Most striking are the two photos of the packaging for this gift set, showing new artwork different than the one used for the markets outside of Japan. The photos also give us a look at the way the front flap opens up and a graphic showing off the "Scramble City" ability to swap out limbs from one part of the Combiner to another. These pics have me even more excited than I already was for this set!
