Generations will get Voyagers and the first figure will be Soundwave with red discs! The figure will be able to hold three discs and will be stored in his chest. A button will pop open the chest compartment where the discs will launch out of and transform upon impact.
We were given a sample at the Hasbro display, but given their early testing stages, no video of images of it in action were allowed - but we think it looks pretty great!
Soundblaster (Soundwave repaint) will also be around with gold discs instead of red discs. Each computer pattern is different.
Generations will also get Legends!
Buzzsaw with Ravage and Frenzy with Ratbat will come in storing sets.
SAN DIEGO COMIC-CONMystery
solved! The Bruticus colors revealed by Activision are the SDCC colors! The paint will be metallic and will be sold in one large box.
Hasbro showed off three sketches and made it appear we could choose, but in actuality, the winner was already pre-determined.
Bruticus is crushing Jazz in one foot, and holding a Transformer in his left arm.
The box will be as epic as the toy. The right side of the box will be a packaging within the box.
One more Exclusive!
They will be releasing Transformers Prime First Edition "Rust In Peace" Cliffjumper.
He is the Zombie Cliffjumper figure that we saw a while back, but he will have additional paint apps and damage "because he is dead."
He will also come with a Dark Energon piece that you can snap into his chest.
Discussing box designs, Hasbro says they thought of a Tombstone and worm farm.
Hasbro are showing a design that looks like a canister, showing off Cliffjumper's head with an LED on the bottom that when plugged in, would light up.
The actual packaging will be a Zombie Cliffjumper head as a box with purple colors for the eyes and oozing from the mouth.
If you stack the head on top of the box that the head is packaged within, it will form the torso of Cliffjumper
FUTURE DATES: August
New Product will launch, including Generations Deluxe, Cyberverse Vehicles, Optimus Maximus, and Fall of Cybertron
FUTURE DATES; Fall
Questions & Answers
Will Masterpiece Optimus Prime have shortened stacks? (looking down the line) The stacks are long for the time being.
Will we get a Breakdown toy? Hasbro dodges the question.
Springer is on the shortlist for Transformers Generations
Will Ironhide be on the show? There is a potential for him to show up in "other places." Stay tuned.
Is Hasbro still working on bringing the unreleased Transformers Animated figures into the market? Unfortunately, as time has gone on, it has gotten harder and harder to release them, so they will most likely never see the light of day.
Why did Transformers Prime First Edition get cancelled in the United States? There are certain things that are beyond our control and they are still working on releasing the First Editions somehow.
