Introducing The TFormers Wave Tracker!
RAC - Monday, November 27, 2017

Today we're proud to be rolling out a new feature on TFormers! We call it the Wave Tracker, and it's designed to give you an at-a-glance indication of what the most current info about a given toy is. Are there pre-orders up yet for Power of the Primes Wave 2? What's the next Masterpiece figure being released? Any reviews or photo galleries of the newest TakaraTomy Legends figures out there? If we know, the Wave Tracker will tell you. Keep reading to learn more!

What It Is

The Wave Tracker is designed to keep tabs on the news cycle of Hasbro and TakaraTomy-released Transformers figures. There's a certain flow to Transformers news, from reveals to preorders to shipping/sighting in stores, to the inevitable photo galleries and reviews. We're collecting that info and putting it all in a single place so it's easy to look up a specific figure and know if you should be checking your preorders or local stores, or checking out the video reviews.

New to the sidebar is a set of quick status indicators for the five most recently updated waves, which you can click and get the full specifications of the wave as it's currently known, ranging from case breakdown to any available reviews or galleries of the figures within the wave. On top of which, you may start seeing updates like this on our social media from time to time as the statuses of waves are updated:

It's our goal for this to make it easier for you to stay informed about the progress of new toys and provide a quick way to look up exactly what's coming!

What It Does

At launch the Wave Tracker will focus on only official Transformers figures made by Hasbro or TakaraTomy. We feel this will allow us to reach the greatest cross section of both the fan community, as well as those with a much more casual interest or awareness in the brand while keeping the scope of the project manageable. There is a diverse and expansive range of first party and officially licensed merchandise like statuary, vinyl minifigures, soft goods, or Mr. Potato Heads wearing Optimus Prime's armor, without even touching on closely-related items like Diaclone Reboot, or the deep well of Unlicensed Third Party, so it's inevitable that something someone is passionate about won't be represented here. It's not our goal to exclude anyone, and over time we may be open to expanding coverage to other areas in the future. Right now this is the range of products we think will be the most useful to keep readers up-to-date on in the long run.

What's Next?

All of us here at TFormers have been putting a lot of work in this project behind the scenes. As far as we know there is not another Transformers resource out there like this, which makes the Wave Tracker very much an experiment in progress. We've done as much testing as we can so far, but we also designed and developed it and know how we expect it to work and be used. We're knee-deep in it, but you aren't. So if you encounter any bugs, if anything isn't clear, or you think something could work better, we want to hear about that, or any other feedback you have about the Wave Tracker. Ultimately we want this to be a useful resource for our readers, so please, join us on the forums and let us know what you think!

More Generations News
Multiple members of the 2005 forums are reporting ToysRUs sightings of Power of the Primes Prime Master Wave 1 figures! This assortment includes Skullgrin(Liege Maximo), Cloudburst(Micronus), and Metalhawk(Vector Prime), and ship in a case of 12 with 4 each, so hopefully they should be plentiful when you find them. Keep reading for the statement!
You may recall we recently brought you the retail stock images for Moonracer. Tonight we have the remaining figures from the same Deluxe Wave 2 assortment, consisting of Blackwing, Rippersnapper, and the Dinobots Snarl and Sludge. Each features the typical three robot, alt mode, and package shots, but they give us our best looks so far at these yet-upcoming releases. Click through to see them all below!
It's time to bring you some new gallery content, because the camera has been kind this night. Spending some time with Power of The Primes right now, we're kicking off with a detailed look at Prime Master Micronus, with Cloudburst Decoy Suit. Or Pretender Cloudburst with a Micronus backpack, or however you want to rationalize what Prime Masters are. Either way, our Titan Master successors are here, and you can find the full gallery for the first of them just below, with over 65 images. Click through and check it out!
With the USA sightings rolling out on the Transformers Power of the Primes Voyager Star scream figures - Check the Wave Tracker to find yours. It only seems fitting to have a look at what fans are liking about the latest and maybe greatest Generation 1 style edition of this classic character. Not to forget, there will very likely be more of this mold coming our way in the seeker characters.
UPDATED with a NY Sighting from Twitter user @cogmanhotrod! Multiple members of the 2005 Forums are reporting that the Power of the Primes Wave 1 Voyagers are now arriving in Minnesota ToysRUs stores! The Voyagers were generally lagging behind the other assortments in US markets, making this the first chance for fans to assemble 2/3rds of a Volcanicus and of whatever Starscream's combiner name is. Hopefully we'll know soon, but in the meantime, click through for a link to the messages!
