Generations
Transformers Fall of Cybertron Toys To Be Released Under Generations Toyline, Combaticon Onslaught Figure Shown Off

By Peter Van on Tuesday, February 07, 2012



The digital edition of Game Informer #227 is online and we have additional information on the Transformers Fall of Cybertron Combaticon toys, including a look at Onslaught!

In the article Jerry Jivoin, director of Transformers brand at Hasbro, Inc, confirms that these figures will be released under the Transformers Generations toyline, meaning that these figures will be deluxe class-sized, making them one of the largest combiners in recent memory.

The toys from the previous game Transformers War for Cybertron were also released under the Generations line.

Bruticus will be made up of five Decepticons, as you may know, and the magazine showcased three of those all five figures! See the other two and a full look at a combined Bruticus.


The former two figures were first seen in images of the magazine last week, and Onslaught may be viewable in the gallery, along with clear looks at Bruticus and the other two figures.

Joshua Lamb, director of design for Transformers, said that these toys have been in development for two years "from early concept to when the product hits the shelf," he tells Game Informer.

See concept art and figures in the gallery.


Game Informer #227 is available digitally right now on www.GameInformer.com and will be available at your local GameStop later this week.
