First Look At Corvette Centennial Design Robot Mode?
bwbm - Saturday, September 06, 2008


We have two images of what has been claimed to be the robot mode of the GM Corvette Centennial Design Concept from "Transformers Revenge of the Fallen."

The images were shared with us by "Blackout34," which was originally found by S250, a man who has been a reliable source in the past.

The first image is from a banned member of the ACToys forum. Posting on his own website, S250 writes that before a poster was banned from the ACToys forums, uploaded a photo of a head design that he claims to be the head of the ZR1.

S250 writes the individual was in possession of a design from "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

We can assume that the poster meant the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, the vehicle that some speculated what the Corvette Centennial was, based on a blurry set photograph.

The second image found is looks to be a full-look of the robot. Where S250 found this image is not explicitly stated, however, we are assuming its from the same source that shared the head design.

We here at TFormers think that this is pure fan art.

The reason is that judging from what we can see, the layout of the "concept art," differs from the layout of the leaked concepts from "Transformers," such as Bonecrusher and Jazz.

We've now seen a toy car with this image molded on the bottom (cheap as hell- burger king or something)- so unless Bay is really going all out to throw us off this is apparently the real deal. I don't know what I think of this design. I don't hate it, but it doesn't exactly thrill ... read more

Looks like any other movie bot design IMO. Hopefully this is just an early rendition of the bot mode. Could be Blur Definitely fits the character.

Yeah, I actually like this design. It's not so much "more of the sake of more", it looks to me like someone spent the time to think about where the pistons and things should go and not just thrown in hap-hazardly... ... It can't be a real movie design.

I see primes face as more generic mask then gundam homage (tho his more human hips seem very very close) also gundam was not the first robot with a mask for a face so to say who's copying who I think would require a huge amount of research. but this vette guy seems to have the right vents and t... read more

The Gundam face idea has been pretty successful so far

True dat. And again I'm sure the toy will have some feature where he can deploy "normal" feet for display purposes.

Really? Those are my favorite parts. It's not often you get a car transformer that has the chest as the REAR of the car.

i hate the feet, and i hate that his chest looks to be the rear of the car. the head look way to beefy for a sports car transformer and it also looks to be in the same style as that early concept of primes head that we saw from botcon '07 when people went on a tour of the factory or in the dvd s... read more

Man, that was quick: TakaraTomy has published photos of their Movie The Best offerings for March 2018 as well! March will see releases of MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version, MB-18 Warhammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Keep reading for more details!
Via Twitter, TakaraTomy has released a teaser image showing off the Movie The Best releases we learned about earlier this week. Not just confirming the listings we saw, this answers some questions about the toys that will be put to use. As it turns out, a reasonable quantity of The Last Knight toys are figuring in to the 2018 lineup including Leader Megatron, Hound, Bumblebee, and the current Optimus mold in the Nemesis Prime role. You can check out the full size image previewing the whole assortment just below in the full post!
Having taken place this week, the Christmas Toy Fair expo in Japan has afforded us a first look at Movie The Best Jetfire, which was initially revealed to us through retailer listings just days ago. From what little coverage we could find of the Transformers displays, it didn't seem like very much new was on hand. A clear look at Jetfire was most notable among other movie products we've seen many times already. An MP Bumblebee was displayed as well to promote the upcoming reissue in February. Sadly none of the newly listed Legends toys seemed to be shown during this event. Keep reading to see the photos!
Celebrate 10 years of live action Transformers movies with the next 9 figures in the "Movie Best" lineup! The new figures include MB-12 Jazz, MB-13 Bonecrusher, MB-14 Megatron, MB-15 Lockdown, MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime (Revenge Ver.), MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Each fully transformable figure features premium deco and includes one or more accessories.
The new release of 2007's Leader Class movie Optimus Prime under the Transformers Tribute subline is now available for purchase in the US via Amazon. Like the Orion/Optimus Evolution 2 pack before it, this is apparently an Amazon exclusive. But, unlike the very unexpectedly reasonable price point of the 2 pack, Leader Optimus is currently listed at $79.99. But of course that does mean it qualifies for free shipping whether or not you're an Amazon Prime member. Is the very first movie Optimus with a fancy updated deco worth that to you? If so, hit the link in the full post below, and keep reading for a set of new stock photos of the toy.
