Generation 1
Updates of Generation 1 Characters - A List Just Because
Breaker - Thursday, January 06, 2011

Someone in a previous thread mentioned that with the oncoming Autobots in the Reveal The Shield line, all we need are Hoist and Trailbreaker and were all set. I took a step back and thought about that. To an extant it's true, but only if you count season 1 of the original Transformers cartoon and only if you exclude Hauler and 4/5ths of the Dinobots. I've compounded a list of Autobots and Decepticons who have appeared in the G1 toon (in no particular order) followed by what lines their "updated" toys appeared in. Check out the list and give your feedback now in this Forums Topic.

Im not including Beast Wars as I said before. The list is based off of characters who appeared in the G1 toon only. Not figure updates of them in their beast incarnations. That muddies the water all to hell right there.

Energon Grimlock and Swoop are toys to say the least. Their engineering is abysmally pedestrian and to make matters worse, their fist holes don't support the 5mm post hole size that the majority of Unicron Trilogy toys have. One of the cool things with Unicron Trilogy toys was that most of th... read more

In fairness, the pics weren't mine so I can't take credit. But don't get me wrong guys, I'm not hating on Energon Grimlock/Swoop. I need to find them because they do look good. I was just comparing them to G1 since that was the topic. As stand alone figures they seem pretty decent. ... read more

Its cool bro, I saw those pics you put up and I have to admit, I kind of want that Energon Grimlock. I wonder why people hate it and Swoop so much? Edit: I looked him up and Energon Grimlock has appeared in official fiction under Timelines. Simon Furman also revealed how he would've been in the... read more

No worries one bit! you did an awesome job getting that list together! If anything look at things this way ... all the debate going on, is everyone's way of mentally modifying their own list to include things that they think may or may not be relevent. I don't think anyone is really... read more

I was just using Hoist as an example as he came up earlier in the thread. And please let me be clear here: I am not trying to force my will upon anyone. This is not an "official" way to "count" anything. Everyone is free to view any figure in anyway you see fit. Copy, paste and... read more

I agree, classics Grimlock is NOT the best example on this one ... However for my G1 layout, I use my Masterpiece Grimlock who brings shame to both Classics and Energon Grimlock (Those 2 shouldn't even be allowed the name Grimlock compared to the MP haha). Although Tarron, nice find! Pretend... read more

You've left out G1 Pretenders / Legends Grimlock which seems more closer to the Classics figure. (link) (only difference really is, the head become feet, and the transformation is slightly more complex.) 
3:47 am

(link) Energon Swoop's color scheme is less accurate, but otherwise pretty close. That's how I feel about it. To pretend all of the repaints of Cybertron molds in Universe are G1 updates because they've been given a new name and paint scheme but disregard others as not G1 updates b... read more

Oh I know, I was just commenting on Hoist because he's been talked about more. As for Energon Grimlock/Swoop, they're decent figures on their own, but neither one of them remind me of their G1 counterparts aside from maybe Grimlock's head scultp, and even that's being generous. Nei... read more

More Generation 1 News
Looks like the Autobot leader will be joining this year's Hallamark holiday tree ornaments offering this year. We knew about the Soundwave and Last Knight Hot Rod, but the addition of the Generation 1 styled Optimus Prime is a little bit of a surprise, literally. As this one seem to be scaled down a bit from the previous edition.
Imaginarium Art posted a new teaser to Facebook for a future statue project, keeping up a constant pace of releases under development. The newest subject of their attention? Why, none other than Galvatron! The silhouette is unmistakable, and it may imply an interesting display base. Galvatron's shadow is planted atop the shape of Cybertron, so the resulting display piece may itself be Galvatron standing atop the planet. Unknown right now when we'll see more out of this development, but the prototype stage ought to be interesting when they're ready to share it!
Imaginarium recently shared a shot of the upper body of their upcoming Devastator statue, showing off the general styling and detail level. Tonight they've continued downward, revealing the lower half of the body with a look at the legs and a considerable chunk of the base environment the statue stands on. Sadly these are not separate cuts of the same image in order to piece them back together - or I would have - but you can still get a good sense of the overall product between them. Click through for the mirrored image!
Three A, makers of high end - and high price - action figures including a range of licensed Transformers figures has revealed a new entry tonight, exclusive to ThinkGeek. Ultra Magnus is a redeco of the Optimus Prime figure, naturally in the unarmored cab-robot form. Its features are more or less the same as the Optimus figure it's derived from, including basic accessory loadout. ThinkGeek's price is just about $400 and they're accepting orders for the new Ultra Magnus right now. Click through to see the promo photos and a link to the product page.
Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is pleased to announce we have now secured a licensing agreement with Hasbro Inc. We are excited about the opportunity to team with Hasbro in creating collectibles based on characters from properties like TRANSFORMERS, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, MAGIC: THE GATHERING, G.I. JOE and MY LITTLE PONY to name a few. Stay tuned for further details!
