Toy News: New photos of TAV 21 Optimus Prime show just how BIG he is!

Taking a break from his recent focus on "Unite Warriors", TF Yuki has posted a couple photos featuring the newly released TAV 21 Optimus Prime figure and it is huge! This figure stands shoulder to shoulder with "Unite Warriors" Superion and is about half the height of Titan Class Devastator! This figure doesn't just have height. It is also full of features including light up parts and the ability to fit a Warrior Class figure in its trailer in vehicle form!

Toy Review: "Generations" Combiner Wars Rodimus

Rodimus isn't the ideal soldier. He doesn't always follow orders, he often takes on more than he can handle alone. However, within this Autobot beats the heart of an honorable and capable leader. With experience this is Autobot will one day be a warrior that the Decepticons should fear! Today's review brings you a look at Legends Class Rodimus.

Hot on the heels of yesterday's major Takara Tomy Mall update, the ever awesome TF Yuki has posted a new image featuring the upcoming Deluxe Groove with his smaller Legends scale U.S. counterpart and the upcoming Override redeco of Legends Groove! It looks like a fun meeting of the Groove sculpts with Legends Groove and Override shaking hands.

Toy News: UPDATE on Platinum Edition Dinobots Set

Yesterday it was revealed that there would be a boxed set of Platinum Edition Dinobots. Many people were disappointed that they appeared to just be repackaged "Age of Extinction" Dinobots from SDCC 2014. However, thanks to Hobbybase we now have a clearer look at these figures and it turns out they all have new heads! Each head is based on the G1 "counterpart" of those "Age of Extinction" sculpts.

Toy News: Platinum Edition Dinobots set revealed

Last year rumors floated around the web about a 2015 reissue of Dinoots. Some fans held out hopes that this meant the G1 Dinobots would finally see some type of reissue. Last night weibo user Alucardlee put up a photo revealing the Dinobot set and it is not a reissue of G1 Dinobots. Instead, it appears to be a repackaged set of the Dinobots sold at SDCC 2014 (you can see my reviews of those Dinobots here).
