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...

Hasbro has posted its product page for Leader Class Thundercracker with official images and a product description! A seemingly chrome-free remold of Legends Jetfire, Thundercracker seems to come with most but not all of Jetfire's gear, with the iconic booster pack sensibly excluded. Keep reading to see!
2Danomite has followed up his first round of photos with some shots of Motormaster configured for Menasor, although three-fifths of the combiner still consists of Aerialbots for now. But this notably gives us a first chance to see the remolding for the inner combined-mode chest which up until now has always been concealed under Blackjack in the promotional photos. We believe the outer chest doors may have changes as well, but we're still waiting to get a look at those. Meanwhile, click through and check out the new pictures!
Twitter user @2Danomite2 has posted images of his just-arrived Voyager Motormaster! The figure is looking good, and Daniel says that he ordered the case from Entertainment Earth. If so, we can hopefully expect preorders to be filled soon from other online retailers. Keep reading to see the photos!
After being delayed more than once, it seems the rather late fifth issue of IDW's The Transformers vs GI Joe will finally be hitting shops during the month of February. Comics Alliance has released the preview for this issue a bit early, so we finally get to see a bit of what comes after issue 4's use of "weapons-grade magenta." Comics Alliance reported it would ship alongside More Than Meets The Eye #37 on 2/4, but John Barber has since verified on Twitter it will ship on 2/11. ...possibly with MTMTE #38. Click through for the mirrored preview pages and a copy of the solicitation blurb!
ComicsAlliance has just posted an interview with Mairghread Scott, writer of Windblade, about the upcoming Combiner Wars crossover! Revealed is the length of the crossover- six issues over the course of three months - and the fact that Windblade is going to continue on as a book after its conclusion and that Scott has longterm plans for the series and character. Scott also drops hints about a character she's wanted to write for ages making an appearance... Keep reading for excerpts and a link to the full interview!
