Ah the Classics seekers, they have lived a turbulent life. Originally banished to TCC BotCon set when Hasbro insisted they would never be offered again. We saw them appear under Henkei line after many paid dearly for the BotCon set. Now, the shackles are off the whole force with a reveal of a possible Asia Exclusive set featuring the six Classics / Henkei seekers action figures. There is just an illustrated image now by way of Planet Iacon showing Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and the Coneheads. Stay tuned for more details as they happen.
Takara Tomy's edition of the Generations Constructicons have been revealed on the Transformers Asia site with a new promotional image Energon Bruticus, NOT the Fall of Cybertron mold as many people had assumed. This will be an Asia Exclusive release, excluding Japan to be released October 18, 2012. The image shows the figure with a somewhat G1 color theme. Check out the image for more details.
Thanks to Brock Landers at Kapow toys forum who have posted many new images of the New Images of Transformers Asia Exclusive Henkei / Classics Ultra Magnus action figure that will be released later this month. These images give us some better looks at the new figure and how its colors differ from the original Classics Ultra Magnus release.
Transformers Classics Ultra Magnus has been officially revealed on the Transformers Asia site. Fans who missed the Hasbro release will be able to pick this guy up for a premium price at around $68 USD from over seas. The listing describes Special designed new packaging, new deco, and chrome parts. Rumor has it that they have enlarged the figure slightly. Be forewarned, it may not be compatible with some Third Party kits made for the Hasbro mold. Look for this toy to ship in China only September 28th. Get a look at the Classics Ultra Magnus after the jump.
Update: We have been able to independently confirm that the set is indeed an Asia exclusive.
Thank to the Allspark who are reporting
that the Challenge at Cybertron 3 Pack with the G1 cartoon colors Cyclonus, Rodimus, and Galvatron is NOT going to be offered in the USA. According to Hasbro's PR group, the figure set is slated to be an Asia exclusive only at this time. It was previously rumored that the set would be carried by Target stores in the U.S. However, never say never. You can still order these sets from BigBadToyStore.com
