Transformers News

Generations
As of writing, the brief voting period in the 2018 Transformers fan vote event is nearly over with. While we await the results of the choice of one of three Deluxe VS sets to be released next year (from which Impactor vs Mirage appeared to be taking a lead at one point), Hasbro has released via Facebook a post clearing up some small details, such as the incorrect identification of Impactor as a Decepticon in the sample art. For the most part it doesn't offer much, but one of the answers actually does give us something to work from. Keep reading to find out what!
Cyberverse
In piece of good news, the TFWiki has clarified that the Legion-esque Cyberverse Scout-class figures do in fact have full alt-modes! As the promotional images only showed them in their Gerwalk-reminiscent "Action Attacker" configurations, it had been speculated that they would not fully transform. Luckily, that's not the case. Click through for the tweet.
Generation 1
Following their line of highly detailed Transformers movie toys. Jada Metals have revealed at Toy Fair 2018 they have obtained the licsense to to Transformers Generation 1 toys as well. Read on for details on a new Optimus Prime Truck and their new micro series.
Generations
Hasbro's people said during Toy Fair they have exclusives planned for Generations for this year, though they didn't reveal any specifics. Blast Off and Repugnus had both been discovered via leaked materials and distributor information, but it looks like at least one more figure may be joining their Special Edition ranks this year. Amazon.ca has a listing page for Deluxe Counterpunch, and while the currently attached price and some of the product info are a bit wacky, the associated product code makes sense compared to Repugnus and Blast Off. So what could we be looking at? Keep reading for another round of speculation!
MasterPiece
Last night we found out about the new anime colors variant of Masterpiece Prowl, MP-17+, which would release as a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive. But surprisingly today, it looks like that will also be available for purchase in the US. US retailers, such as sponsor BigBadToyStore now have preorder listings for MP-17+, marked as a Hasbro product, and due in September. The timing - and similar pricing - sure makes this sound like an effort at a simultaneous (or as near as we can get) Masterpiece release by both Hasbro and TakaraTomy, which could have some interesting potential if it becomes a regular occurrence! Click through for a product link.
Transformers Movies
The biggest surprise to this is that it was announced before Bumblebee: The Movie was even released. Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner announced today that the Transformers Cinematic Universe is cancelled. The universe - which Paramount had so much faith in that they took four to five of the prospective scripts and put them in a blender to make Transformers: The Last Knight - will be replaced by what is described as a 'reset' of the Transformers franchise to happen no earlier than 2021 going by the film schedule offered to investors. Keep reading for more details.
Cyberverse
We look forward to unveiling the latest innovative play experiences from brands like TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY, NERF, PLAY-DOH, MONOPOLY, MARVEL, STAR WARS, and HASBRO GAMING to provide our audiences with more ways to experience our brands than ever before.
Generations
Australian distributor the little toy company has posted preorders for the three Terrorcons in Power of the Primes wave 3, along with Titan Class Predaking! The now-confirmed Titan is marked $195 AUD (about on par with the standard USD $150 for Titans by today's exchange rate) and is scheduled for August or September, with the Deluxes scheduled for May or June. Keep reading for more details!
Generations
Ubiquitous, world-devouring megabusiness Amazon.com has posted a new listing for Power of the Primes Special Edition Blast Off! The information in the listing corroborates the leaks and distributor listings that pegged Blast Off as a special edition with a bonus Prime Master. Keep reading for more info!
Transformers Movies
The fans over at Transformers Peru have posted images of shipping lists of items coming soon to the country! Most of it isn't too surprising - the 7" Authentics were confirmed as the "Alpha" assortment - but it does provide confirmation of the contents of Studio Series Deluxe Wave 1! Keep reading for more info.
Legends
Autobase Aichi has published a synopsis of the Transformers news in this month's issue of Hyper Hobby, one of the many hobby magazines published monthly in Japan. While the mechanical translation is typically shaky, it seems as though the Legends series, with its higher standards of deco, will be continuing alongside the Japanese release of Power of the Primes! But there is still a catch - keep reading for details.
Bumblebee: The Movie
UK distributor abgee has posted a set of new listings on their website on the heels of UK Toy Fair! They mostly match what has gone before... with a few changes in language that seem to strengthen the case that "Stryker" is indeed this movie's codename for Bumblebee. Also, we've got listings for a new Studio Series Voyager figure codenamed "Destroyer." Keep reading for details!
Generations
Earlier tonight we shared with you some photos of an apparently early-release copy of Rodimus Unicronus, the new addition to Power of The Primes Leader class wave 2. But there's a bit of a discrepancy with it, as highlighted for us on Twitter by Barricade64. The official images we've seen of the toy since it was revealed have featured aspects of its deco and the slight remolding of the Rodimus Prime head that point to an intentional nod at the Shattered Glass continuity that was a recurring staple of Fun Publications' time producing licensed material for the brand. It seems that isn't quite so much the case anymore. Keep reading!


Generations
While still what we would consider early in its life cycle, it seems that a running change has already been carried out on the latest member of the generations Starscream family. Jason Rye reported this finding to us, which involves an alteration to how Starscream's wings/backpack connect to the body. The design tweak is said to improve how the jet mode comes together, and may have other benefits as well. You can see a side by side comparison of the two versions of Starscream, find out more detail, as well as get one of the batch codes identified as being associated with this running change below. Keep reading!


Generations
Transformers Authentics, the "evergreen" style simple budget figures that seem to be taking after the Cyber Battalion series now have product listings on Hasbro's website. The first batch including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Megatron are not yet available for purchase from Hasbro Toy Shop, with their "Buy" buttons leading to error pages. But these listings do confirm the SRP, with prices listed at $4.99 each. The listings include the same images that we saw with the Amazon releases recently. Keep reading for links to the individual pages.
Generations
Blast Off has been leaked a couple of times, enough to be reasonably sure that it was something to actually exist in the upcoming product line. We have a bit more confirmation of that now through a listing on ACD Distribution. This doesn't give any new information, but it's joined by a second listing that is much more interesting for its implications. Listed additionally as a Generations Special Edition Deluxe is a Repugnus! Repugnus had been conspicuous as the only Monsterbot character that didn't end up making it to the Deluxe scale, but it seems that will finally be achieved, bringing the whole team together. Keep reading for some good old speculation!
Third Party
Perfect Effect promised a short while ago that upgrade products for Power of The Primes were on the way for anyone looking to improve their official toys. We now have a first look at what they have in store, in the form of PC-21, PC-22, and a sneak peek at PC-23. 21 and 22 are hand and foot replacement sets for Volcanicus and Starscream respectively, similar to what was released during Combiner Wars but with updated styling. PC-23 isn't mentioned specifically, but the demo build of Volcanicus can be seen with new armor pieces likely filling the same role as the "armor" made for Menasor, and a shadowed-out gigantic sword. Releases are due to start in March. Click through to see the pictures!
Bumblebee: The Movie
Paramount has sent out a press release for Bumblebee: The Movie giving a synopsis of the plot and a higher-quality version of the image that circulated the other day of Hailee Steinfeld's Charlie character and Volkswagen Beetle Bumblebee. It's a fairly barebones description of the movie, but we have final confirmation that Bumblebee is indeed a VW Bug in the film. (Toys? Hopefully?) Keep reading to see!
