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

From the Facebooks of HK-TF members Waishing Leung, ChaRles Ng, Ting Yan Kwok, and Fido Li, we've got images of most if not all of Power of the Primes! Among the highlights are new looks at Optimus and Rodimus Prime as well as Grimlock confronting a horde of Titans Return Legends-class Gnaws. And also, Optimus Prime embraces his movie self (and the Prime Master/Titan Master/Matrix/Enigma cross-compatibility) and carries the Matrix of Faces. Keep reading to see the images, mirrored here for your convenience!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Firsthand thoughts on every Power of the Primes figure out so far! Street Fighter X Transformers may be the single greatest Transformers idea ever. Mattel rebuffs Hasbro, so I guess we're not getting a Transformers Battle Cat anytime soon. We share our thoughts on Titans Return Episode 3! Plus: new photos of Masterpiece Dinobot, MP39 Sunstreaker, Voyager Class Power of the Primes Starscream, Perfect Beast Mega Doragon, and way, way more!


An unsourced anonymous image board post has provided something a bit interesting to look at: Power of The Primes Rodimus Prime broken down to its individual units showing a new perspective of how the full Leader Class toy comes together. As shown we can see the Hot Rod robot, plus the transformed state of the trailer that forms most of the Rodimus body, along with the Rodimus arms, which detach between forms. Of note which may not have been clear before, the Matrix chamber is located within the Rodimus Prime specific body portions rather than as part of Hot Rod directly. Keep reading to see the photo.
