While we saw Kickback displayed in the dealer room this past weekend at BotCon, Hasbro has released the official images of Ultra Magnus (Optimus Prime repaint with new head mold), Sideswipe, Starscream, and Fireflight (Shockwave repaint)!

my thoughts exactly. thats gonna be the first time i buy that mold
That's because Optimus isn't supposed to be that bulky. FOC Ultra Magnus will look great standing next to WFC Optimus Prime.
amen. i love those seekers! I think the only other repaint i would willingly buy is Ironhide/Ratchet
It's stupid of Hastak not to create 2 easy repaints of any starscream mold, possibly the only repaints that many of us collectors will pick up on a regular basis. I'm sooo getting an extra Starscream to turn into Dogfight!
It would be stupid of Hasbro not to crank out 2 easy repaints of that Starscream mold.
I already knew I was grabbing up 2 Shockwaves for parts swapping with earth mode Jazz. Now I'm debating picking up 2 Fireflights for parts swapping with HFTD Terradive... that head screams Bomb-burst to me
Really? I hadn't noticed. That is sneaky, but in a good way. I think speaks to colors used on the Jazz toy how they're so dull.
that Sideswipe is a remold of the Jazz mold. pretty sneaky Hasbro...
Oddly that mold looks so much better to me with Magnus' colors than it does as Prime.
This week on RFC: The SDCC exclusives hit Hasbro Toy Shop. Did you get yours? We're guessing not. With little fanfare, The Last Knight comes home next month. Titans Returns Slugslinger has hit Australian retail, Metroplex is being reissued in Japan, Perfect Effect's Black Jinrai upgrade for the SDCC Primitive Skateboarding Prime looks phenomenal, and Deluxe Cogman looks AMAZING--let's hope we get it! All that and we ponder the deeper meanings of life and Masterpiece Targetmaster Hot Rod on this week's edition of Radio Free Cybertron!
THE RETURN OF GALVATRON THE BARBARIAN! Optimus Prime meets with Alpha Trion, the ancient sage, who reveals a tale of Cybertron's earliest days, when the original Thirteen Primes united the world. But even then, the warrior known as Galvatron was a wild card... shaping the future in unexpected ways.
Entertainment Earth has listed a preorder for Kidrobot's upcoming series of Transformers vs. GI Joe Mini-Figures! Priced at $240 for a box of 24, these blind-boxed figures are, to our knowledge, the first figures explicitly designed after artist Tom Scioli's take on the Transformers and GI Joe universes. Keep reading to see the preliminary designs and a list of figures!
So, SDCC exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime came and went really quickly on HasbroToyShop yesterday, and we at TFormers hope that most everyone who wanted one was able to get it. But with Titans Return Siege on Cybertron shipping the same day with Magnus Prime, we got to thinking about the amazing variety of uses and retoolings that mold family has seen over the two short years it's existed. So keep reading for a handy infographic laying out the history of the Ultra Magnus mold family!
