Possible New Transformers Generations Design for G1 Optimus Prime with Roller Targetmaster?
Jack - Sunday, January 13, 2013


Thanks to griffin over at Ozformers, who has posted an image from Toy Hobby Retailer magazine of what may be a new Transformers Thanks ot Generations G1 Optimus Prime figure design. The image that appears in a magazine article celebrating Hasbro's 90th year as a toy maker. Is an illustration that depicts an Optimus Prime with man of the hallmarks of the Generation 1 version. What is even cooler is the Roller vehicle presented as a Targetmaster weapon! Take this at face value, as we have no news of a new figure at this time.
As Austin Powers once said, "How'd I miss those baby"... the latest issue of Toy Hobby Retailer magazine has been looking at me for about a month (sitting on my desk next to the computer), and I only just noticed that on the cover "Hasbro montage" (promoting it's major brands in its 90th anniversary this year), there was something to do with Transformers buried in the middle.

Taking a closer look, I realised that I didn't recognise the toy artwork at all... but knew that it was Gen1 Optimus (it is definitely NOT TFPrime or Movie Optimus), with a gun that appears to have truck parts on it (blue cab with windshield and lights, three sets of "wheels" on the side).
So, could 2013 see a Generations line with a gimmick of convertible weapons like the Powercore Combiners or Arms Micron... with the weapons turning into drone vehicles instead of Minicons/Microns?

I guess we'll find out in about a month's time at the American Toyfair. But for now, enjoy this teaser...

I'm all for this with the idea/hope of more Targetmasters to come. As is, more Generations stuff is good. Guess Toyfare will tell.

I could be tempted, if only for the inevitable third party upgrades, or the hopeful Thunderclash or Pyro repaint.

Looks more like a blue G1 Huffer with the truck windows at the back.

The split chest reminds me of the Movie-verse style. I guess its ok. Not sure about that Roller idea... would be neat if they could figure out how to get that gun platform from the Combat Deck to be a targetmaster weapon. But if Roller is actually what that is, hopefully that means a trailer will al... read more

Weibo user NOTRAB has posted a photo showing The Last Knight Premier Barricade, and a red and blue redeco of Titans Return Kup we haven't seen before. A long while back now, otherwise credible rumors pointed to the Targetmaster Crosshairs being the reuse of the Kup mold, and we're leaning toward that as the identity of this piece. But there's also the possibility of an Orion Pax, as the pre-Optimus Prime character has been represented on a Kup mold in the past, and the red arms and what would be mostly blue legs does work toward a very Optimus color layout. Keep reading for more details and the photo.

The solicits for this coming August are out, just a little bit early via Forces of Geek, and we have three Transformers-relevant titles to expect. Sadly not present on this list is Till All Are One, but we do have Lost Light #9, Optimus Prime #10, and the second installment of the five part miniseries Rom vs Transformers: Shining Armor. We got the blurbs and some cover image preview, which you can find in the full article below.
The regular cover for issue 8 of Optimus prime does not in fact feature Optimus Prime, but is a neat Jazz piece by the regular series art team of Kei Zama and Josh Burcham. The cover was originally revealed by previews World, and subsequently, the artists have shared the in-progress versions of it, giving us a look at the clean art with and without colors applied. Kei Zama will not be contributing interior art for this issue, so be sure to enjoy her lines on the cover when the issue hits shops in June. Find the three iterations of the cover in the gallery below!
Thanks to OzFormers and Seibertron, we have confirmation that the Transformers Titans Return Quake, the remake of the Hardhead mode, with new Titan Master Chasm. That is making its way to retail, is it was sighted at a Kmart in Canberra, Its not sure, but the report is stating Hasbro may be missing out on part of Wave 4 release with these new ones coming so soon. Read on for the full details.
