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.
