First Look At Generations Voyager Whirl From SDCC 2013
By ExVee on Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Thanks to Instagram user starlock who has posted a photo of the upcoming Generations Whirl figure on display at the Hasbro booth at San Diego Comic Con. As you can see in the image below, this toy hews closely to the original G1 Whirl toy, rather than the current IDW comics design as many had hoped for. Check out the full size image below and keep watching TFormers.com for the latest Transformers news from SDCC!

I was happy to see that the panel slides are showing the display Whirl to be mistransformed. With the knees just so slightly bent backwards it starts to show the personality of MTMTE Whirl, even if just a little.
MINE! Love this guy! Cannot wait to grab him and he's such an upgrade from his G-1 counterpart. I loved that toy.
I like this figure. I think they went a little too G1 inspired, but I like it and will buy him when I find him. His alt mode looks awesome IMHO.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We talk about all the news leading up to Toy Fair 2016 including the recent Brainstorm, Astrotrain and Computron leaks. We also talk about the upcoming Transformers RTS for iOS and Android titled "Earth Wars." Will this be Clash of Clans but with Transformers? We also talk about the upcoming Transformers Club reveals including Subscription Service 5.0. All that and some speculation about the Hasbro and Mattel rumors on this week's Radio Free Cybertron!
As we carry on eroding away any chance for surprises at Toy Fair this weekend, today's leak shows us what's probably the full art for Computron finally, and even in color! While most of Computron is not a surprise, being an assortment of varyingly retooled existing molds (though more and more this Scattershot seems to at least have the right colors to be the torso), there is one new nugget. On the Strafe shoulder is... a yellow or gold Cosmos? It sounds like the highly improbable rumor of a Scounge recolor of Cosmos may have actually been true, giving Computron a surely very special arm. Keep reading to take a look!
"Autobots, you have the power to combine!" The official Transformers YouTube channel has posted a new TV spot for Combiner Wars! While the only CG featured is of the Superion from last year's ads, the live action footage highlights Sky Reign as he prepares to do battle with Bruticus. Click through to watch it!
With Wonderfest done and the retailer photography now out in the wild, it looks like it's time for Hisashi Yuki to take over in delivering us further looks at the upcoming Unite Warriors Bruticus. Tonight via Twitter we've got a new angle on the current colored sample of the set, and the colors look very nice here! Particularly, the combiner hands have a very pleasant matte silvery-grey that hopefully carries over to the final production parts. We'll probably see lots more of these toys from Yuki soon, so keep watching here for updates, and click through to check out this photo!
With Toy Fair just a quick couple of days away now, we're due to officially see a lot of things that so far have only been rumors, or bizarre piecemeal attention-seeking leaks. But Hasbro seems to want to jump the line just a little bit this year. In a post to the official Transformers Facebook page today, they announced a new official Instagram account coming soon, which will launch with "an up-close look at a certain Titan scale figure"! The referneced account is set private currently, but in the next day or two it sounds like we'll be having a first look at Fortress Maximus straight from Hasbro.
