This 3rd party update to G1 combiner
SinnerTwin is now on Preorder at Bigbadtoystore
Platinum Series three pack of the G1 Insecticons. These toys were reissued several years ago at Toys R Us
names had to be replaces due to trademarking issues.
But this seems not to be the case anymore. But there is no information on pricing & release date, there is cross-sell on the box that shows the “Seeker Squadron” of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet.
This will be a great set for G1 fans.
Takara Transformers Masterpiece MP-23 Decepticon Exhaust with Exclusive Coin.
The one toy everyone is talking about but no one in the US will (more than likely) never be able to get, unless you have friends overseas.
This classic figure may look like a simple repaint of MP-20 Wheeljack.
But, with a new head sculpt, some other tooling and paint apps, this figure has become something else entirely.
He isn’t simply just a silly repaint, his roots exist in the realm of Diaclone.
Just like his counterpart, Lancia Stratos (Wheeljack) are both pre-Transformers lore.
The Marlboro logo on the car isn’t simply copyright infringement, it’s based on the actual racing car it’s designed after.
Sites like Robot Kingdom have put up disclaimers like this stating Takara Transformers Masterpiece MP-23 Decepticon Exhaust:”This item was claimed by Phillip Morris USA, that infringe PM USA’s MARLBORO Roof Design.”
So that means here in the US, Marlboro would sue if this toy is sold here. Thus, instantly making this toy rare in The States and more valuable and, in the long run, will become overly priced on eBay.

BEAST WARS MEGATRON
An insane, hyper-intelligent criminal mastermind who led a group of renegade PREDACONS to Earth in search of the Energon they would need to conquer CYBERTRON, MEGATRON became so much more than a petty felon. When the search led to the discovery of alien artifacts, MEGATRON launched an assault on Time itself, seeking to change history to his benefit. He nearly destroyed CYBERTRON in his mad quest to exterminate the TRANSFORMERS, and was stopped only when OPTIMUS PRIMAL brought him down. He returned, determined to have his vengeance, and his battle with the MAXIMAL leader raged across the multiverse!
As the commander of the most elite AUTOBOT special forces unit ever assembled, you’d expect ULTRA MAGNUS to be just about one of the most unstoppable warriors this side of the galactic core. You’d be right. If there is any AUTOBOT the DECEPTICONS fear as much as OPTIMUS PRIME, it is ULTRA MAGNUS. His battle hammer has crushed chassis from one side of the galaxy to the other. No battlefield on which his armored feet have stepped has ever been yielded to the DECEPTICONS.
