An image purporting to be a Hasbro internal image detailing Titans Return Fortress Maximus was posted to Autobase Aichi this morning, giving full release information and data on a number of "exclusives" to a specific release of the figure. The date given - February 19th - is too early for any particular convention (except perhaps Toy Fair) - but the price of 179.99 seems in line with what we have expected. It does, however, refer to the line as "Titan Wars" still, so take this with a grain of salt until we have further confirmation. Keep reading to see it!
Transformers @ The Moon's coverage of the TF Trademarks beat continues, and we've got one that looks promising today: "Titans Return"! The trademark application was filed just this past Friday. The "Titan Wars" name itself was revealed accidentally and prematurely at BotCon 2015 - could this be the final name for that, or just a tagline? Either way, Hasbro's reserving it for Transformers use. Keep reading for more details!
Transformers At The Moon has posted links to two new trademark filings from Hasbro: Backtrack, and Autobot Wheelie. The latter's pretty well known, and the name Backtrack was previously used in the live-action and Armada toylines. As to what they'll be used for,
we've got some speculation on that in regards to Wheelie. Read on to see!
A new character design from Transformers: Devastation
was revealed last night, both spoiling a character's appearance in the game and drawing some interesting comparisons to Combiner Wars Wave 4's new Voyager class figure Battle Core Optimus Prime. Was this the original plan in Battle Core Prime's development? There's no way to know, but keep reading to see some comparison shots and light SPOILERS
Thanks to @GeneralTekno on Twitter for this one! The story is that artist Livio Ramondelli, responsible for the The Transformers
side of the Combiner Wars crossover, has confirmed that Cyclonus will not
be appearing, thus there will be no impetus to redesign or move the character from his More Than Meets The Eye
appearance in order to have him conform to the Combiner Wars crossover. And frankly, that's a relief. We'll update this story if we get a more direct confirmation of this but for now, keep reading to see the tweet!
Ozformers member Bidoofdude
put 2 and 2 together concerning two previously-rumored Generations Legends, and got a promising response from Hasbro! The known Combiner Wars Legends-class figures skip numbers 11-17, and so an email was sent to Hasbro asking if the previous Walmart leaks Gnaw with Gnash and Brawn with Mudslinger might be among their numbers. The answer is less than concrete, but more than maybe - keep reading to see!
A member of the 2005 forums has posted a rumor about the eagerly anticipated Combiner Wars Devastator, one which dovetails neatly with the idea of it being a Titan Class figure. The rumor suggests that the body will be a Leader and the limbs will be Voyagers, which would indeed suggest a massive figure that requires a Metroplex-sized box. The rumor also suggests we'll see a yellow G2 version at SDCC this year. Keep reading to see all the rumored details!
Less than 24 hours after the LioConvoy reveal, GI Joe fansite GeneralsJoes has brought to our attention a recent Transformers Collectors' Club tweet that promises their next figure reveal will "send shockwaves across fandoms!!!" Both collectors clubs managed by FunPub, GI Joe and Transformers, contain characters named Shockwave... Keep reading for the original tweet and a link to further analysis at GeneralsJoes!
Thanks to griffin over at Ozformers, who has posted an image from Toy Hobby Retailer magazine of what may be a new Transformers Thanks ot Generations G1 Optimus Prime figure design. The image that appears in a magazine article celebrating Hasbro's 90th year as a toy maker. Is an illustration that depicts an Optimus Prime with man of the hallmarks of the Generation 1 version. What is even cooler is the Roller vehicle presented as a Targetmaster weapon! Take this at face value, as we have no news of a new figure at this time.
Transformers Generations may be on hiatus for the onslaught of toys we are going to get for Transformers Dark of the Moon
, but that does not stop some speculation. An alternate head has been unveiled on the instruction sheet of the soon-to-be-released Generations Warpath, continuing an ongoing trend. The head looks quite similar to Hardhead, in the image provided by Down_Shift. What do you think? Speculate in the comments!
An alternate head shown on the instruction sheet packaged with Transformers Generations Thunderwing has revealed a possible new figure. The head mold looks very much like Black Shadow, a character that was also remolded from the Generation 1 Thunderwing mold that was a Japan exclusive during Transformers Victory. If this is true, we might be looking at the first G1 crossover repaint since Stepper aka Ricochet was brought over for the Commemorative Series. Take a look at the instruction sheet after the jump.
Thanks to S250 Stryker Wang who has posted some unconfirmed information he has called a rumor at this point of a possible Kup figure for the Generations toy line. Here's what he wrote on this twitter account
: "rumor said green car being developed in generation series...Kup,is that you?" As always, take this information with a grain of salt, although S250 is not known as a guy to make stuff up.
