Generations
Possible New Transformers Generations Design for G1 Optimus Prime with Roller Targetmaster?

By Jack on 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...

The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a set of concept sketches for Windblade, showing a number of possible design routes the toy could have taken after the more general points had been decided by openly polling the fandom. Could we potentially see one or more of the other head designs here as an alternate for a future use of the mold? And check out how many turbines Windblade's design started out with before being restrained to a more reasonable proportion! Click through to see all the images.
A posting has been discovered on Hasbro's job site advertising an opening for Brand Manager, Global Brand Marketing based out of the Pawtucket headquarters. While qualified persons will view this as a potential employment opportunity, for fandom members this may raise a question of if changes are occurring for the Transformers brand team that we've just started getting used to over the last two years and what impact it may have on the Transformers brand as we know it currently.
