More Generation 1 News
With little time remaining before the game is released across the various platforms, the Transformers Game Facebook is cranking out the promo materials. Most recently we've gotten some concept art for the Decepticon generic ground troops, collectively the Battlechargers - one type based on the Generations Wheeljack body (like the Collectors Club exclusives) and another being a simplified version of Blitzwing. We also have nice art of Shockwave in robot and gun modes. Click through and check it all out!
Yesterday's spotlight on Grimlock wasn't the end of coverage for the Dinobot commander, today the Transformers Game Facebook page has their own regular gameplay demo video posted, showing some stages and attacks not present in the "cinematic trailer" yesterday. We have screenshots and an embed for that, plus a collection of several lineart pieces for Soundwave, the cassettes, and Megatron's tank mode. Keep reading to see it all!
If you're of the age that you remember buying or at least receiving Transformers when G1 was fresh on the shelves, you probably remember the littler rubbery Decoys coming with. Takara apparently does, as they're reviving the concept, though these won't be packaged with regular toys. The Transformers Figure Collection will be released in capsule machines in Japan starting in January, reportedly for under 100 Yen. The lineup currently consists of just 8 Autobot characters, but maybe more will follow down the line. Click though to take a look!
With less than a week before the game is released, the Transformers Game Facebook is still hyping it up with teaser content. They've just posted the bio for Grimlock going over the basic personality and moves available in game. And along with that, Gamestop's Youtube channel has posted a "cinematic trailer" spotlighting Grimlock, with lots of samples of Gregg Berger's voicework for the character. As usual you can click through for the video embed and screencaps, plus the bio sheet!
Next week, IDW is headed back to New York Comic Con and bringing a host of captivating panels, talented signings, and essential exclusives with it! Located at booth #1844, IDW and Top Shelf will be your destination throughout the weekend! Transformers fans can catch up with Andrew Griffith, Corin Howell, Livio Ramondelli, and John Barber among other great IDW properties. Read on for the full details!
