Back in April, Hasbro revealed the amazing Robosen Optimus Prime. This electronic, auto-converting Optimus Prime can also walk, talk and battle Decepticons all via voice command! These have begun to arrive for fans who pre-ordered months ago and mine just came in. Check out some unboxing photos below showing the box contents. I have also added a couple screen shots from the App you can use to control the figure (an alternative to using voice commands). A review will come down the road but for now enjoy the pics!
Threezero has revealed pre-orders for their upcoming MDLX Optimus Prime figure open up on October 15. The post on their Facebook page notes orders will begin on on 15 Oct, 9am HKT (14 Oct, 9pm EDT) at https://www.threezerohk.com. It is likely other retailers will carry it as well, though Threezero did not specify any.
It may be incredible to think about but we are already nearing the end of 2021, and with it comes the Holiday season. In celebration of that season Super 7 has posted pre-orders for an unexpected figure: Optimus Prime Santa! This wacky figure is a redeco and retool of the previously released Optimus Prime figure from the ReAction line featuring Optimus wearing a Santa hat and featuring a green and red Christmas themed deco. You can pre-order this item using the links below (and help support BWTF as well!). The figure is due in December 2021.
Thanks to a new listing on Takara Tomy Mall we now have a better look at Titan Class Black Zarak. When this figure was first revealed it was clear the images were basically saturated Photoshops. This time out we have actual images of the figure itself (or at the very least a test shot). Here is the product description from Takara Tomy Mall:
The folks over at Tag Hobby we have our first look at a surprise release that is expected to be coming from Takara Tomy. This release features a redeco of the Kingdom Ultra Magnus' inner cab as Optimus Prime and an "anti-gravity base" display stand. So far none of my usual retailers have put this up for pre-order yet but once it's up I'll definitely post about it. For now, enjoy the images (mirrored from Tag Hobby).
Images have appeared online via several Facebook groups showing off what appears to be a Masterpiece version of Shouki - the leader of the Trainbots from the "Headmasters" cartoon series. Along with his fellow Trainbots, he could form part of the Combiner, Raiden. This group of G1 toys was only released in Japan and thus far the entire group has not yet been updated outside of a Million Publishing exclusive of Shouki as a Classics Astrotrain redeco.
This past week Super 7 and Target posted pre-orders for two new exclusive ReAction figures. Both figures are redecos of the Optimus Prime and Megatron figures in gold, based on their appearance in from the G1 episode "The Golden Lagoon". Each figure was $17.99 and they are due out February 6, 2022. Pre-orders sold out in a day, but it is likely these will be on shelf in Target stores like previous Super 7 figures. For now, check out the official product information and images below:
Once upon a time he was Beast Wars Megatron's most loyal warrior. In another timeline he is one of many troops who guard the Predacon base. Either way Scorponok is part of the Beast Wars inspired Kingdom era! Check out my review and gallery of this Deluxe Class figure from the Generations line.
