The theme for Botcon 2015 has been revealed: Cybertron’s Most Wanted!
And the planet’s only hope.
Botcon 2015 will be held from June 18th – 21st at the Pheasant Run Resort, Chicago Illinois. Check the official Botcon site for reservation information. Further information will be available on Botcon’s official Twitter feed.
Takara-Tomy has posted a stop motion video of the forthcoming Masterpiece Ultra Magnus on their official YouTube channel. The short features Ultra Magnus alongside other Masterpiece figures to demonstrate the scale of the figure, and a transformation sequence that shows, among other things, that the cab is an integrated part of the larger figure and does not have to be removed during transformation.
The figure is expected to be available in late December.
Multiple Transformers sites are reporting that “Tiny Titans” figures will be available as a part of the “Robots in Disguse” toyline in 2015. These figures appear to be very similar to the now-defunct “Robot Heroes” line of non-transforming figures that were available in 2007 and 2008.
Made of PVC and standing only two inches high, these figures are posed in various action stances, and will likely have very little in the way of articulation. Retail price per figure is unknown at this time.
The Tiny Titans are expected to arrive at retail in early 2015.
