The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a set of concept sketches for Windblade, showing a number of possible design routes the toy could have taken after the more general points had been decided by openly polling the fandom. Could we potentially see one or more of the other head designs here as an alternate for a future use of the mold? And check out how many turbines Windblade's design started out with before being restrained to a more reasonable proportion! Click through to see all the images.
A posting has been discovered on Hasbro's job site advertising an opening for Brand Manager, Global Brand Marketing based out of the Pawtucket headquarters. While qualified persons will view this as a potential employment opportunity, for fandom members this may raise a question of if changes are occurring for the Transformers brand team that we've just started getting used to over the last two years and what impact it may have on the Transformers brand as we know it currently. Keep reading for more information and a link to the listing in case you think you have what it takes, or just want to know what such a position looks for.
If you've fallen a little behind in your Transformers purchases, this is a great time to round up what you've missed. Hasbro Toy Shop currently has a new active coupon code that gives 20% off most in stock merchandise, and throws free shipping on as well, even for orders under $50! HTS is very up to date with their Transformers offerings, that combined with this excellent discount make it a perfect chance to snag some things you may have opted to wait on a bit. Keep reading for the discount code!
Finally from the Hasbro fan media press kit images we've got a newly announced Legends Class figure. Huffer is a remold of Legends Optimus Prime featuring a new head and plenty of orange in the new deco. Like all 2015 Legends it seems Huffer will not be packed with a smaller partner figure, and unlike the new molds we can't expect the figure to have any form of integration with combiner characters. Click through and check out the photos!
Surprising everyone at Hasbro's pre-NYCC fan media event was a Leader Class Thundercracker, remolded from Generations Jetfire and made to strongly resemble the existing Legends Class Seeker mold. While we can't say how likely it will be that the entire "main" Seeker team including Starscream and Skywarp will come to exist, with this already on the way it seems anything might be possible.

Thanks to Anthony from TFU.info who's tweeted a pair of close up images on the back of packaging for first wave 2015 Voyagers Motormaster and Optimus Prime. We have our first clear look at the quad-lingual packaging style that apparently will be coming to us next year, and we can read the quick bio notes describing each character. Keep reading to check it out!
Thanks to jitome_dan, we have numerous new photos of Generations Arcee out of package and in action. Of important note are photos giving scale relative to other common Transformers molds for a solid idea of what to expect of the toy's volume. But apart from that, this photographer gives us a good demonstration of the toy's mobility with a variety of interesting and entertaining poses. It's our best look so far, and we have it mirrored for easy access, so keep reading!
From the Facebook page for Robo Robo, we have somewhat higher resolution versions of the catalog scans that first revealed the Japanese market decos for Generations Arcee, Chromia, and Windblade. Most notably we can see Windblade's greatly modified deco in some better detail, showing how much closer to the comic model it tries to adhere. Click through to check out all three images!
Million Publishing has added new official photos of this year's Generations Book mailaway exclusives. In addition to the two images we brought you previously, we now have vehicle mode photos, as well as shots of Shouki's "Train Bazooka" mode, being utilized both by Go-Shooter, and Shouki's "Daniel" Targetmaster figure. Keep reading to see them all!
Tober at Ozformers has once again posted images for the newest of the new Generations figures, showing off Chromia who is currently not available in most of the areas of the world where Transformers are sold. An extensively retooled Prime Arcee, Chromia has a distinctly different visual identity, and you can get the rundown with these pictures and quick comments from Tober by clicking through now!
Following being on display at Super Festival 66, Million Publishing's HeroXnet has tweeted two promotional images of mailaway exclusives Shouki and Go-Shooter. Showing both toys along with their partner character figures both in regular display stance and action oriented poses, they're doing a good job selling both, even if Go-Shooter is arguably the one with the greater degree of interest right now. Keep reading to check out both full size images!
At Super festival 66, the fourth wave of Transformers Cloud figures were on display. From TAGhobby we have photos of Hellwarp, a Skywarp-themed recolor of Sky-Byte based on the concept of Cyborg Beast Hellscream, and Roadbuster, based on the colors of Energon Ironhide, called Roadbuster in the Superlink version of the series. These are currently the last known pair of toys from Cloud, and should ship late this year. Keep reading to see the images.
TAGhobby has posted photos from Super Festival 66 where Million Publishing's exclusive recolors of Nightbeat as Masterforce's Go-Shooter and Astrotrain aa The Headmasters' Trainbot Shouki were on display. Mailaway figures offered through the Generations 2014 Volumes 1 and 2, Shouki with Daniel should ship later this year, and Go-Shooter with Shuta will ship early 2015. Keep reading to see both images!
Planet Iacon has shared a new photo showing a display of this year's exclusive offerings. Go-Shooter is a recolor of the Nightbeat remold of Bumblebee/Goldfire, with a recolored instance of Legends Bumblebee's Targetmaster partner as Shuta, while Shouki is the previously seen Trainbot recolor of Classics Astrotrain. This is our first look at a physical sample of Go-Shooter, and we can expect more to follow soon. Click through to see the full size image.
From the RocketPunchArmy Youtube channel we have an early look at Chromia, upcoming wavemate to Generations Arcee. A substantial retool of Transformers Prime's main line Arcee toy, Chromia has been the source of a lot of unexpected interest to see how this unusual instance of major after-the-fact remolding will play out in practice. Watch the embedded video to get a good look at this figure in-hand!
