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

In 2009, More Than Meets The Eye writer James Roberts made his sort-of professional writing debut on IDW's Transformers comics with a credit on All Hail Megatron #15, later co-writing Last Stand Of The Wreckers with Nick Roche. But Roberts almost joined IDW's Transformers team even earlier! Nick Roche has posted initial designs he produced for Spotlight: Octane, a one-shot pitched to IDW with Roberts as co-writer. Click through for more details and a look at Roche's nifty Cybertronian Octane design!

We have a tiny bit of new info about TakaraTomy's use of the Combiner Wars Sky Lynx mold. Revealed in the customary silhouette, their as-yet-unnamed take on Sky Reign seems mostly similar to the US version in molds, save for the replacement of Smokescreen with a use of the First Aid body type. Today offers no greater insight to character identities, but we do have the product code, UW-EX, and a date for orders to begin, June 9th. This looks like another TakaraTomy Mall exclusive - though as usual we expect mainland Asia to be general retail for easy import. Stay tuned for more info!
