Unlicensed group Toyworld first teased their upcoming line of Dinobots homages way back in January of 2013. Flash forward to today where Toyworld has revealed their first two figures in the quickly crowded arena of unofficial Dinobot transformers, which will be their take on Snarl and Sludge.
Not just revealing their figures and upping the ante a bit, we also have a tease of these figures being able to combine! We only have one image of this, but it's very obviously shows off the combining gimmick of these Dinobots with "Snarl" and "Sludge" forming the combiner legs.
No other information such as release date, price, or scale is available at this time.

Let the hunt begin for the next round of Transformers Generations figures! Earlier today it was reported by TFW2005 boards member alkamist
that everyone's favorite shark, Sky-Byte, was found at a Target in Pinole, California! No sign of case mate Roadbuster (TFW2005 gallery here)
, but the Wrecker should be out in the wild too given this Sky-Byte sighting. If you're still on the fence with buying this Predacon or just want to see more, check out the TFW2005 gallery of Sky-Byte
for several highly detailed images.Read Replies (0)

Hot on trail of the last glimpse of the prototype we reported here
, we get to see more images of the upcoming Masterpiece Star Saber
! These images allow us to see more details of the figure and especially a closer look of Star Saber
's front section that transforms into Saber. There's a possibility that the "Brain of Courage" - the smaller, Brainmaster robot - is in Saber's cockpit, but it's still a bit difficult to tell at this time. What do you think? Be sure to chime in on the ongoing discussion. See the images mirrored here after the jump and stay tuned to TFW2005.COM for all of your Masterpiece Transformers news

IDW has sent out an SDCC press release detailing a few of their future Transformers books, including more information and clarification on both Combiner Wars and Angry Birds. Specifically, it seems that the Combiner Wars toy tie-in will be an event that spans across both the Robots in Disguise (#39-41) and Windblade Returns (#1-3) series, in a fashion similar to that of the previous toy tie-in event, Dark Cybertron:Angry Birds / Transformers
Announced earlier this year, Rovio and Hasbro have teamed up two beloved properties in Angry Birds and The TRANSFORMERS! This fall IDW will bring the mayhem to comics with the brand new series, Angry Birds Transformers, expanding on the unexpected backgrounds of this explosive crossover! Written by The Transformers mastermind, John Barber, with art by Marcelo Ferriera, this crossover will be one for the record books!
Transformers: Combiner Wars
A new Transformers event, Transformers: Combiner Wars will start March 2015 from writers Mairghread Scott and John Barber and artists Sarah Stone and Livio Ramondelli. It’s an arms-race of truly titanic proportions as a long-lost ancient artifact allows the Cybertronians to unite into more powerful, gigantic forms. Will Cybertron—or the galaxy—be able to withstand the onslaught? Find out with a prologue and 5 issues, running in TRANSFORMERS #39-41 and the new TRANSFORMERS: WINDBLADE #1-3, which will be packed in with select TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS toys.

Amiami has updated with official images of Sentinel's gigantic non-transforming licensed Megazarak
(aka Scorponok) and Black Zarak
(aka the expensive Scorponok recolor with gold plastic syndrome).
These "Gigantic Action" figures each stand about two feet tall, so are scaled against the height of the Generation 1 Fortress Maximus toy, and are based on how the characters looked in their appearances in the Headmasters and Masterforce animated series in 1987 and 1988 respectively. They're due in late October (for Megazarak) and late November (for Black Zarak), but they come with a huge pricetag of 48,600 yen or around $480!Read Replies (0)
