Click through and check out the new looks at these figures!



An article at Destructoid has compared the personalities of three Transformers characters to the fates and marketing strategies of the current generation of video-gaming consoles. It's... honestly kind of a headscratcher, but the reasoning is there - and writer Mark Cosimano clearly has a real affection for IDW's More Than Meets The Eye series. So which characters are most like the XboxOne, Playstation 4 and WiiU? Keep reading to find out!

Thanks to Felipe Leon Najera of Transformers Colombia for bringing us the stock photos of the Cyber Battalion Series figures, the "upscaled" simplified Transformers Generations figures recently revealed through retailer catalog scans.

So what happens when they discover their founder has joined the Autobots? (Clue: it's not pretty.) The long-awaited return of the most dangerous villains in comics history! If you don't already know the names Tarn, Kaon, Tesarus, Helex, and Vos -- you better learn 'em before they get you! Variant Cover by Transformers game and toy artist Sara Pitre-Durocher!



Just in from Hasbro, we've got our first look at the official promo photos for the just-confirmed Generations releases of Wildrider (Brake-Neck) and Slingshot (Quickslinger).

Keep reading and check them out!

IDW artist and colorist Priscilla Tramontano has posted her alternate cover to Windblade #4, which will feature the epilogue to Combiner Wars. The cover shows Windblade hovering over a riot scene - just another day on Starscream's Cybertron, or is this another part of the Transformers' universe? We won't know until June, so until then keep reading to see the image!


Autobase Aichi has updated their previous story with a couple more catalog scans. A second page of Cyber 7 Series figures has appeared, showing a Movie/Prime-inspired Bumblebee and also a movie-colored Grimlock. Bumblebee in particular looks to be a scaled-up Cyberverse Legion figure. Also shown is the Platinum Triple Changers set showing off Blitzwing and Astrotrain's out-of-nowhere new paint jobs. Keep reading!


By way of Autobase Aichi, a scan from a Brazilian catalog has surfaced showing off a new series of Generations figures. The Generations Cyber Series are larger figures - 7" and 11" - featuring G1-inspired character designs and simplified transformations for younger kids. Bumblebee and Optimus Prime are shown for the 11" line and Megatron for the Cyber 7 line. Autobase Aichi also speculates that perhaps that Starscream at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis might also be a Cyber 7 figure in the offing. Keep reading to see the scan!


Just in via weibo are some out of box of the Generations Combiner Wars Thundercracker Leader class figure. Get a look at the production figure along with some comparisons between the Legends class figure and what looks like Classics Universe Galvaton. As a reminder, this a retool and redeco of the first Generations Leader figure Jetfire -


Autobase Aichi's Facebook page has posted an extensive gallery of images of Million Publishing's exclusive GoShooter mailaway figure! A recolor of Nightbeat - himself a remold of Generations Deluxe Bumblebee - GoShooter includes Mini-Con partner Shuta Go to stand in for the original toy's Headmaster. Keep reading to see some sample photos of GoShooter alongside the original toy and with the other modern takes on Masterforce Autobots, Collector's Club Metalhawk and Ginrai!


The Children's Museum of Indianapolis' Robots In Disguise Exhibit has opened, and on display are a variety of unproduced prototypes such as this Voyager-sized Starscream. Photos from the Allspark help make the origins of this figure more likely as an upscaled version of Generations Legends-class Starscream. Keep reading for more info!


Thanks to nemesispringer of TFW2005 for finding this new image of Optimus Maximus, the upcoming recolor of Combiner Wars Voyager Optimus Prime! Hosted on thetoyshop.com, it's slightly more of the painted image we've seen before, and significantly clearer: he's shown in his combined form, and his arms seem to be Sunstreaker and Mirage, both rumored from the "Masquerade" wave that appeared in retailer computers early this year. Keep reading to see!


It sure looks that way. TFW2001 user scubaboy31 has posted an image from the back of the Combiner Wars Wave 2 pack-in comic which shows various behind-the-scenes images, and one of the illustrations looks very much like Stunticon newcomer Offroad with Ironhide's head. This has been the speculation for a good while now: that the Ironhide that turned up in retailers' computers would be remolded from Offroad to combine his movie, pickup truck self with his G1 design in much the same way as was done in Transformers Prime. Keep reading to see the image!


Thanks to forums member GIKPA who dropped by with a load of new images give us MORE looks at the mighy MENSOR combiner mode. Get a look at hi-res images showing the whole team from many angles in the image gallery now.


Twitter user @tsukumo_TF decided to help Legends Huffer not feel so left out while his wavemate Blackjack was being a chest decoration for Motormaster. With some simple fanmoding, Huffer can now take position on Ultra Prime, and looks really nice doing so! This works the same way as early pictures showed Thundercracker, by grasping the pegs on Ultra Prime's chest. The same caution may apply though: Mind how you fit Huffer on there or risk the hands breaking. Click through to check out the photos!
