Flame Toys has revealed the artwork for its upcoming Optimus Prime (attack mode) model kit via Facebook and it is spectacular looking! The artwork comes with a reminder that the model kit will only feature the base plastic colors (most likely red, silver and blue) and paint applications will be necessary to make it look exactly like the figure in the artwork.
The updated "Titans Return" versions of Grotusque and Repugnus were both limited items with Grotusque going for high prices on the secondary market while Repugnus has been selling out from Amazon consistently. Now fans who missed out on these figures have another chance thanks to Takara Tomy!
Amazon Japan has posted a listing for Masterpiece MP-20+ Wheeljack. What's the "plus" part you may wonder? Well this time out Wheeljack will feature colors based on his animated counterpart (whereas the original Masterpiece Wheeljack was more muted). The figure will include his Immobilizer accessory. Amazon Japan has Wheeljack priced at ¥9,180 (about $82.56 USD) and is set for release in February 2019.
When the Decepticons began to overrun the Autobot forces on Cybertron, Optimus Prime rose up to gather the Autobots into an effective fighting force. His power is only matched by his nobility and belief that freedom is the right of all sentient beings! Check out my review and gallery of Warrior Class "Cyberverse" Optimus Prime.
With a terrible attitude and a willingness to cross lines other Autobots won't, Repugnus lives up to his name as he uses any methods necessary to destroy Decepticon enemies! Today I bring you my review and gallery of "Generations" Repugnus!
It was revealed last week that Takara Tomy would be releasing a new version of the live action movie Optimus Prime based on the "Evasion Mode" Optimus Prime figure with retooling and new deco. Now thanks to Dengeki Hobby we now have wonderful stock photos of this figure known as "Legendary Optimus Prime". The figure will feature a different weapon than the original release and even a "Battle Mask" face swap.
For months now fans have been told that Walmart would be releasing several G1 reissues under the banner of "Vintage G1" figures. While Walmart has posted listings these figures are not yet in stock with the giant retailer. Meanwhile, BWTF sponsor BigBadToyStore has Hot Rod in stock so I thought I'd snag one to see what fans have to expect from this line of "Vintage G1" reissues.
