The Ultra Class figures from Cyberverse feature gimmicks that are better activated, with actual buttons and slides that are dedicated to the gimmick. Of the three I like Starscream the best because the missile gimmick reminds me of the classic Macross missile spam. If you're obsessed with articulation these figures are clearly not for you, but if you're looking for chunky robots that are fun; Bumblebee, Starscream, and Grimlock are for you.
'm not going to contribute to the rather heated discussion over the use of the term Scout Class for these simplified, half transforming figures. The various size and shapes of Transformers over the years have had a TON of different names. These figures are fun, a seemingly bad word nowadays but it's true. Crashing Megatron and Bumblebee together, for example, is a simple joy. The transformations for each figure are simple but in the case of Bumblebee and Starscream features a few interesting touches. Any recommendations for these figures would fall on deaf ears but they're really not ALL bad.
Maas Toys - MA-001 Tyrant Throne is a comfortable place to sit your MP-36 to overlook all who follow him. A command position for a commanding figure. The Tyrant Throne is a rotocast chair done in purple to emulate your favorite scenes from this classic animated show. Each throne comes with a removable clear cast perch for an additional over look from those who never fail him, unlike some of his other warriors.
Autobase Aichi has posted new images of upcoming Studio Series figures! #18, VW Bug Bumblebee, sports a package shot and robot and vehicle mode images. #22 and #23, Dropkick & KSI Sentry, are shown in both modes and have images of their unique backdrops. Keep reading to see the figures!
TakaraTomy has updated their product page for Encore Unicron with some additional shots including the 360-view turnaround sets they love to do. Encore Unicron is notably based on the duplicate Unicron created by the Mini-Cons near the end of Transformers Armada rather than the original colors. This "Unicron of Light" was depicted as a toy once before, but only as a lucky draw item. This version uses more clear plastics and a fully unique deco to try to better represent the glowing green Unicron from the TV show. Click through to find all the mirrored photos.
Unexpectedly, it seems a rather unique piece of Transformers history was recently listed for sale on Amazon from a marketplace seller: Original package art for the Beast Wars Microverse Orcanoch battlestation playset! The Microverse lineup only consisted of two toys before the price point was dropped, one for the Maximals, and one for the Predacons. This piece shows the full art produced for the packaging, without being cropped to fit or overlaid with callouts - although there are revision notes attached, which if anything just add to the interest. As of writing it was available for a little over $200.

When the teaser trailer for this winter's Transformers: Bumblebee went live, viewers would notice that for a brief moment, Bumblebee appears in a differently detailed robot mode to his other known forms, looking like a Jeep. Well, we now have more information about that, coming from - of all places - an auction listing for the sale of the screen-used prop vehicle from the movie. The catalog listing gives some very vague plot elements in the description, so we're going to push that down a little to protect against possible spoilers, but be warned. Click through to see photos, copied from the auction catalog.
On their Facebook page, MAAS Toys has posted a photo of a color prototype for Tyrant Throne, a large piece of home furnishing for your Decepticon Masterpieces. Or at least MP-36 Megatron. That seems to be somewhat specific, since through some discussion on the Facebook post itself, it was explained that the chair is designed for figures with leg builds similar to that particular Masterpiece, and may not play quite right with others. There's currently no pricing information on offer, and no release window, as it sounds like actual production of the item is due to start soon. But as nice as this rendition of G1 Megatron's throne looks, one could easily hope for an eventual followup with MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron in mind.
Coming to us from Uncle Tree Studio on Facebook, we have a nicely shot assortment of photos covering the VW Bumblebee coming soon to the Studio Series lineup. We just recently saw a first video for the toy, highlighting its transformation, and these photos are a perfect followup. Besides giving us a chance to look over the details of the figure, this includes helpful side by side comparisons with the first Studio Series Bumblebee ...unfortunately revealing this toy to be about a head shorter than the already kind of small Camaro Bumblebee. We've mirrored a selection of photos from the shoot, click through to check them out and for links to the original galleries!

After debuting at SDCC last month, we now have a first hands-on look at Studio Series 18 Volkswagen Bumblebee from Transformers: Bumblebee. The Korean Youtube channel Toy Factory has the video up, which shows a basic look at the toy's two modes, and its option parts including a replacement forearm cannon, a battle mask that replaces the regular robot face, and a clip on saw blade. A good amount of time is also spent showing the transformation, which while sharing a few basic engineering concepts with the previous Studio Series Bumblebee, is doing more still all its own.
