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.

Ok 40 is better than 30,also was wondering how small these guys are going to be_the prime deluxe class are tiny so I hope these fellas aren't scaled down like that,but u know how that goes by the time they hit stores prime toys may seem huge compared to new classics generations

Yes FoC toys are part of Generations as were WFC. The 40 figures you're referring to will be in 2013. 
3:05 am

Will these FoC toys be part of the generations line? FoC starscream that's going to be under the generations banner,so I was wondering if these 5 and prime jazz and shockwave will count in the 30 new classics we're getting Plus I'd bet dollars to rubbles we're gonna get all 5 dinobot... read more

Honestly if they would have just made Onslaught Voyager size, Bruticus would have been awesome. I'm planning on buying one of each, but not displaying in Bruticus mode

I was excited for this team, but the combined mode just looks "thin". PCC is what I thought when I first saw the combined mode. the artwork makes him look more beefy...so I'm not so sure. I am glad that Hasbro is making a combiner team finally. Vortex has IMHO too much red. I think GI ... read more

But to be fair to the game designers, High Moon has been saying since early on in the WFC days that Hasbro is heavily involved in every step of the design process, up to and including final approval of all designs and story elements.

To be fair to Hasbro, one of the things I don't like about FOC Bruticus is Blast-Off. That's the fault of the game designers, not Hasbro. 
11:03 pm

Only thing I'm concirned with is that Bruticus' back looks so empty. Wondering about the weight on the main body part being too drastic to support the arms.

Once sales start to slow down, Hasbro turns to the Fandom and listens and pretends to give a shit, while getting their ideas from us. Once sales start soaring again, they will stop listening and think they know what we want

Transformers Combaticon Awareness Week
More Generations News
Hisashi Yuki has been a little lax in posting Transformers-related toy photos recently, but has made up for that with a great shot of UW-03 Defensor (or Guardian, if you prefer) preparing to engage the massively looming UW-04 Devastator. While Defensor had been set to ship out this weekend, its release was pushed back two weeks, resulting in both combiners coming out during December. Defensor is due 12/12, and Devastator is reportedly expected to go out Christmas Day, leaving both just around the corner! Keep reading for the full photo.
From the 78dm.net forum, user xccain has shared two photos of Generations Sky Lynx, due as part of 2016's second Voyager assortment. These images give side on views of both the regular robot-beast mode, and an attempt at fulfilling the Hasbro design team's hint that the lynx mode could also be coaxed out of the design. This result seems more like a griffin, but it's a start down the path until more people get a chance to figure out the alternate transformation. Click through to see the mirrored photos. Updated with more images!
Newsarama has posted the full length preview for next Wednesday's Transformers #48, featuring the improbable teamup of Buster and D.0.C, which may give us the answer to the ultimate question: Who will be written with more depth and personality, Marissa Faireborn, or Thundercracker's dog? Click through to check out the preview, and come back early next week when we bring you the first review of the issue!
Anselm Lin has posted several additional images of Legends Class Shockwave. In this new batch comes a photo of the back of the packaging showing in color the integration with Onslaught's vehicle mode, plus some size comparisons, and demonstration of Shockwave's capacity to be carried as a gun by most any figure with 5mm-friendly hands - which may be subject to hand shape, as a square projection can be seen just in front of the 5mm handle, potentially ruling out figures with larger or unusual hands shapes. Keep reading to check out the new shots!
Anselm Lin has gotten hold of Legends Class Shockwave, one of the four figures from the first 2016 assortment, and shared some pictures via TFND. In these photos we get good looks at the robot and alt modes of the figure in final production colors, as well as shots from the instruction sheet showing the suggested interaction with Onslaught and Bruticus - as a jet pack. We've got the photos mirrored, so keep reading to take a look!
