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...

Shockwave14 has posted to let everyone know that he's found Voyager Brainstorm at a Wal-Mart in National City, California. Posting an image of his receipt for proof, it looks like Brainstorm's case revision is hitting just in time for what we can hope will be quick distribution around the US for the major holiday shopping weeks. Hopefully this will also mean online retailers receive their stock very soon as well. Good hunting!
Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon has posted images of diagrams showing Superion and "Ultra Prime," Combiner Wars Optimus Prime's super robot mode. These use only the Wave 1 limb-bots, so each of the Autobot combiners is making use of Stunticon Dragstrip in some form or another. Since they seem to be emphasizing the Scramble City mix-and-match aspect for Combiner Wars it works but still... weird. Keep reading to see!
