  4. In what is almost surely an accidental reveal, Amazon.com has - with little to no fanfare - posted full details of the fifth wave of the Transformers Trading Card Game: Titan Masters Attack. Promising Titan Masters with mix-and-match heads alongside the Wreckers and a Fortress Maximus Titan Pack in every booster box, Titan Masters Attack will also feature a new card class known as Stratgem Cards which are said to allow for greater character customization.

  5. Plastic model maker Flame Toys has announced the latest in their Furai Model series of Transformers action figure kits: G1 Optimus Prime! The kit is due in April 2020 for an SRP of USD $40, and features some optional extra hands as well as an energy axe and opening chest compartment.While anime-styled Optimus Prime interpretations are somewhat thick on the ground after all these years, the Furai Model has one very important feature that sets it apart, at least in RAC's opinion: it lacks the thick, ugly white frames around Optimus' pectoral windows first introduced in the Dreamwave years.

  6. Hasbro Pulse has interviewed IDW editor David Mariotte about a new project due out this April: a four-issue Transformers `84: Secrets & Lies miniseries!

  8. Daniel "Protoman" Arseneault has posted the first image of Wave 2 of WizKids' Deep Cuts assortment!

  10. Following up on ExVee's list from yesterday, it's my turn to talk about what I liked most about Transformers in 2019! There's a lot of fun stuff I probably should've put here but a lot of it - like BotBots! - are already on ExVee's list, so why repeat ourselves when we can do something new? And so...

  14. With many thanks to Facebook user Yu's Hobby Land, we finally have a look at the Nezha: Transformers series which will be airing in China in the near future! Fascinatingly, it seems to use the Cyberverse character models, if not outright being part of the same continuity. We make no claims to that as it's far too early to say! But it does at least explain why there are seemingly Nezha-branded Kre-O kits of Cyberverse characters. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
  15. Nezha Transformers, or possibly Transformers Nezha is a bit of a mystery. A Chinese-language Transformers production, we know next to nothing about the plot, or characters, or basically anything else except "This Exists, And So Do Some Toys." And now, by way of Weibo, we have another potential toy! Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
  16. Previously, we reported that TakaraTomy was teasing a new Raiden project at the upcoming "Railway Story In The Sky" exhibition being sponsored by various Japanese railway companies. That exhibition is now underway, and thanks to Autobase Aichi we've learned that the announcement is in fact a new Raiden figure for the Masterpiece Series.

  17. Entertainment Earth has posted new listings for Cyberverse products due to ship in January of 2020! Among them are a few names new to the line's toy releases, along with a name that's not familiar to us at all: Hammerbyte. Newcomer Hammerbyte is in the Warrior assortments along with Soundwave, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, and what we presume to be a new deco of Hot Rod with a prefix of "Stealth Force.

  19. Thanks to Jesse Wittenrich on Twitter for posting this image from Jim Sorenson's latest Transformers book, Transformers: A Visual History! Within the book - a treasury of Transformers artwork - Wittenrich spotted this unreleased figure: Got my copy of Jim Sorenson's "Transformers: A Visual History" and this one piece of art in the PotP packaging section caught my eye!!#transformers #poweroftheprimes #beastwars #primalprime pic.

  20. Thanks to Twitter user @saberconvoy for the heads-up on the first toys from the Chinese series Transformers: Nezha! Very little is known about this animated series exclusive to China, but thanks to the packaging seen here three character names are now known: Nezha, Tu Xingsun, and Lei Zhenzi. These names correspond to Chinese deities and traditional characters from Chinese Opera as best we can tell from a cursory Google search. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
  21. Weibo users MEGA-Decepticon & JakeToys have posted images from what is claimed to be an accidental early listing on Hasbro China's Taobao store of 2020 releases. Besides Movie Masterpiece Ratchet and Starscream, we've got a scattering of Generations Earthrise figures that strikes us as very interesting if true. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
  22. Thanks to Rob Springer of Radio Free Cybertron and Zone Base for the heads-up on this one!

  23. Thanks go out once again to Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast for providing us with this sample for review!So there had to be a counterpart to that Metroplex theme deck eventually, right? Inside every Siege II booster box is a single Trypticon pack containing Trypticon and his entourage: Full-Tilt, Wipe-Out, and Brunt (who possesses neither a hyphenated name nor an alternate mode).

  24. Thanks once again to Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast for supplying us with this sample for review! RAC unboxes and looks at the specs of an entire booster box of Siege II, the new expansion for the Transformers Trading Card Game that hits retailers tomorrow, November the 8th! Siege II throws a lot of new variables into the TCG including multi-part characters like Skytread and Omega Supreme as well as Weaponizers, who become equippable gear for your other characters once KOed.
