Encore 23 Fort Max includes his sword

Transformers Encore 23 Fortress Maximus with sword

All but verbally confirmed.

Some official preview photos of the slew of upcoming releases were posted by Famitoy which include our first look at the expected Black repaint of MP-10 (this time with Decepticon symbols!!), MP-15 & MP-16 cassetticons, the non-yellow ‘anime’ version of MP-22 Devastator, and Encore 23 Fortress Maximus WITH THE MASTER SWORD IN HAND!!! Check out the pic above to see what I’m talking about.

This has been the big question to Fort Max reissue lovers: Will it have the sword? Looks like yes, it probably will.

Also, THIS GUY is very happy to not have Encore 22A be a yellow G1 redeco because… well, I just got THIS in the mail. I’ll give you a hint, it’s not from Generation 2…

So rare, I may be the only person on Earth to have this. Thanks Maz! ^_^

The first Generation 1 Shattered Glass figures – G1 SG Soundwave & Blaster + cassettes!

Ehobby sets the TFCC straight!

It was bound to happen someday: the collector club got their grubby mits on some classic Generation 1 transformer molds. I never would’ve guessed that it would take teaming up with E-hobby to make such a thing become reality. We finally got a glimpse of the finished figures today and they look pretty awesome, if not completely wacky. What’s up Slugfest mold!? Where ya been, man??

I for one am excited for this set, mostly for the Soundwave half, but a giant black Blaster is kind of cool too. Maybe this makes up for all the hate that SG Soundwave received from this year’s Botcon set? No? Well, you a-holes are never satisfied so suck it.

Exclusive Shattered Glass G1 transformers from Japan

Yellow guy not included!

The big question here is what’s the price going to be? Consider the facts:

  1. This set is an exclusive set expected to be availble in the USA and Japan (so there’s going to be a large number of them made)
  2. It is a rather large set that includes two large G1 figures and 4 cassetticons
  3. Encore Twincast and Soundblaster were each released somewhere around the $65 pricepoint
  4. It’s being release by the Transformer Collector Club (so tack on about 25% more cost there for whatever reason)

I estimate the price of this set to be between $175-$225 + shipping.  So it’s gonnnnnna cost ya!  But man, bring on the Shattered Glass G1 Optimus Prime!!!!!

Transformers Encore revived with Soundblaster, Twincast, ENEMY, and 2 other WTF cassettes!

Transformers Encore series Soundblaster Twincast and ENEMY

Collecting cassettes just got a smidge more fucking insane.

TakaraTomy has supplied us with plenty of “WTF?!?!” moments this year and here comes another!!!  The Transformers Encore Series is BACK and weirder than ever as it becomes  home to Soundblaster and Twincast again.  Don’t roll your eyes just yet though, they sure found a way to make you get plastic scratch fever: Soundblaster now comes bearing a never-before-seen BLUE Cassette door much like his Headmasters appearance.  THERE’S MORE THOUGH – 4 apparently brand new cassetticons!  A red Ratbat, red autobot Ravage, black autobot Steeljaw, and best of all, OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS ENEMY!!!  Enemy is a weird hold-over from the Microman days.  The original Frenzy/Rumble mold was released in Microman as a red / blue amalgamation.

No changes to the Twincast mold as far as I can see.  I guess that’s why he comes with the batshit crazy cassette repaints.

TFsource put the preorders up just now so check it out now if you must – SoundblasterTwincast.
