TFCC announces Lio Convoy for 2015 membership incentive figure photo
TFCC announces Lio Convoy for 2015 membership incentive figure
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

The Official Transformers Collectors Club has announced their 2015 membership incentive figure. They're adding to their tradition of giving Beast Wars characters new Cybertronian vehicle modes with a new figure of Lio Convoy based on the Transformers Generations Orion Pax figure. If you know your TF history then you know Orion Pax would later become the Autobot leader Optimus Prime so it's a bit appropriate that the Pax figure would be used to make another leader. Lio Convoy is the leader of the Maximals in the Japanese series Beast Wars II

It's interesting that they chose to use the Japanese name Lio Convoy when Hasbro tends to prefer to retcon him as Leo Prime and has released a few figures under that name. It's pretty good representation of the figure, helped largely by the new head sculpt. He'll go well with the previous two incentive figures Rampage and Deapthcharge as well as the figures from the Dawn of Future's Past series that began with BotCon 2006. 

I'll be looking forward to this one. They haven't released a lot of details, but typically the membership period to receive new incentives end in March with the figure being released around June.

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: A-Toys

A-Toys didn't seem to have much at WonFes, but holy crap did they have something awesome: the Female Titan! The skinless beauty has her dukes up, and would look great next to Sentinel's Rogue Titan figure (which I really hope is in the same scale). They also had an unpainted prototype of Maou from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. Her cleavage game is as strong as ever!

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Embrace Japan

My experience with Embrace Japan has its good and bad points, but I do like their original character designs. They're revisiting an old favorite of mine, Diabolus Inclinatus, with a new figure that looks quite pretty. The oth...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Nendoroid gallery
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

I know there's been a lot to take in this week with all the new announcements, but you've got room for some Nendoroids, right? They may be small, but the gallery is big! We got shots of stuff from major games like Super Mario Bros. and Metal Gear to the latest anime like Captain Earth and Sword Art Online II. Plus some more Nendoroid More: Cube play sets that look to represent a convenience store or maybe a school store (with recycling bins and gashapon machines) and school shoe lockers with umbrella holder! Plus Nendoroid More bathing suits! 

Great stuff, click below to check it out and don't forget about the newly announced figures.

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kaiyodo's Mega Sofubi Advance

Did I just completely miss this whole arm of Kaiyodo's corpus? I'm always awed and amazed (sometimes not in the best way) by super-huge toys. In this case, I definitely got a good impression, though. As I turned the corner, I...
