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!

Toy Review: "Rescue Bots" Boulder (Dump Truck)

Boulder the Rescue Bot embodies some of the ideals of the Autobot cause. He is a highly skilled engineer who has a gentle nature and a desire to learn more about his new homeworld of Earth. When he needs to change up his form, he sometimes takes on the alternate mode of a dump truck to help with construction activities. Check out my review of Boulder the Dump Truck!

Toy News: Clear images of "Legends" Ultra Magnus released

New photos of the upcoming Takara Tomy "Legends" Ultra Magnus figure have been added to Amazon Japan! There are some significant deco changes between this version and its "Generations" counterpart. This includes red thighs, Autobot symbols on both shoulders and a bit of extra deco including silver on the rims of the wheels. The figure also includes Alpha Trion instead of Minimus Ambus, staying more true to the G1 cartoon.
