Masterpiece Movie Megatron and Jazz have been revealed!

http://news.tfw2005.com/2019/01/26/movie-masterpiece-megatron-and-jazz-revealed-381718

Megatron is his TF1 form-- good, because we've needed an update of that one ever since the first movie. They kept updating the RotF version over and over for years, it's about time they got to this version again.

Jazz looks awesome, and hey, he also splits in half at the waist, with an add-on "robo-spine" bit!

When you see them side by side you can really see the differences.

In-hand, great quality pics of Siege "Cybertron/Galaxy Force" Optimus Prime!

https://news.tfw2005.com/2019/02/02/transformers-war-for-cybertron-siege-leader-class-optimus-prime-in-hand-images-382104

Interesting that the guns in vehicle mode are reversed. Better mold detailing, but ultimately it seems like Cybertron Prime is still the better of the two. Honestly, Cybertron was just about at the peak of TF toys in terms of quality/value, Hasbro probably doesn't need to bother updating any toys from THAT line.

Also, Tiny Turbo Changers continues with Series 5, with half new molds and half redecos/reuses:

It looks like there was going to be a "Bumblebee Movie" Megatron at one point, interesting.

Also, Hound has his cigar!

Well, you know, plastic was dirt cheap back in the Aughts.

Omega looks cool. I'm still trying to figure out where most of the rocket comes from. I noticed two bits on the back before. Butt here still a bit I don't know where it goes... hmm.

Not sure what you're talking about, there. For a gray prototype she looks pretty accurate.

Anyways, I've been kinda busy so I haven't been able to post news. Toyfair stuff, I'm sure you can find easily enough if you want to. LOTS of Botbots revealed, which I'm lovin'. Over 200 this year, it looks like. Also, a rubber ducky Botbot called Quackles-- yeah, he's going with MP BW Megatron. The Ghostbusters crossover is also a really nice surprise.

New Siege Micromasters and Barricade:

They look cool, though Barricade REALLY needed a different headsculpt.

https://news.tfw2005.com/2019/02/28/new-image-studio-series-devastator-384239
Wowzers, I was not expecting that. So Scavenger AND Overload will be Leader class toys for Studio Series Devastator. Thus, he's made of 2 Leader class, 4 Voyager class, and 2 Deluxe class toys. Wow, he's gonna be a beefy boy.

Pumped for a giant version of Mr. Scoops, uh, Scavenger! They can make him pretty big ‘cos he’s mostly air! :smile2:

Siege Skywarp w/ multiple Targetmaster redecos, G2 Sideswipe, and SLAMDANCE! (The latter was unexpected and looks very cool, plus makes a lot of sense.)

Also, SEACONS INCOMING:

Astrotrain! Spinister! Crosshairs! Finally triple-changer APEFACE!

https://news.tfw2005.com/2019/06/26/war-for-cybertron-astrotrain-apeface-spinister-and-crosshairs-revealed-390354

I had a friend when I was young that had G1 Apeface. He was one of my favorites, glad to get an update that's not just a little Titan Master set (looks like this version has a Headmaster, too).


Also, SDCC Botbots 10-pack!

SDCC News Roundup:

https://news.tfw2005.com/2019/07/19/tfw2005-round-up-of-news-from-san-diego-comic-con-392574

Noteworthy comments:
-Rung is very unexpected. Making him a gun was the best option, I think.
-LOOOOVE Lancer's color scheme. It does indeed make that mold worth buying a fourth time.
-The Rainmaker 3-pack and Micromaster 10-pack are my highlights. Always love building up that Seeker Armada, and more Micromasters are always good.
-Direct-Hit and Power Punch! Hooray, they're moving into the Micromaster Combiners soon!
-Unicron looks rather impressive, but... no. Just no. $600 is just WAY too much for even me to spend on one toy. And at that size and with that many folded-up planet panels, it would be an utter pain to transform. Sorry Hasbro, but if this is fully funded this will be the first new TF mold in a long, looong time released domestically that I will not buy.
-More uber-rare Japanese cassette reissues is always welcome! Nice to be able to get those for a reasonable price soon enough!
-I really like the "cell-shaded" Optimus Prime & Megatron Wal-Mart exclusives. Those will be something else to see in-person.
-So glad that rumor about a G1-accurate Refraktor 3-pack proved to be true. Love the extra parts!
