Generations
Prepare to Drool Over Official Looks of Transformers Generations Deluxe Ultra Magnus, Sideswipe, Starscream, and Fireflight

By Peter Van on Tuesday, May 01, 2012



Over the weekend at BotCon 2012, we learned that Hasbro is preparing to offer additional Transformers Generations figures in 2013 inspired by the Transformers Fall of Cybertron video game.

Fireflight and Kickback


Deluxe Ultra Magnus, Sideswipe, Starscream, and Fireflight are just a few of the toys that will help round out the 40 figures that will be out next calendar year.

To assist in the expansion, Hasbro will also introduce Voyager and Legion class figures.

Sideswipe and Starscream


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)!

Drool over all of them in the gallery.

More Generations News
Benscollectibles on Youtube have posted a few new video reviews for the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars figures. Get an in-hand review of the Optimus Prime, Silverbolt, and Firefly figures that we first saw last summer at BotCon and SDCC. Read on to watch all three of the video reviews below for more information on these Transformers toys.
The long, long-awaited G1 Arcee figure is hitting stores now! RAC likes the figure, but some extremely otaku design choices detract from the overall enjoyability (and even G1 accuracy) of the figure in favor of making the Arcee of designers Hironori Kobayashi and Yuki "Kiss Players" Ohshima's very... personal dreams. Also, you currently have a 25% or less chance of getting fully functional hands. Continue to full review
Robotkingdom has put up solicitations for Wave 2 of Combiner Wars at the Voyager and Deluxe scales, with a shipping date of mid-to-late January! Looks like Hasbro is trying to aggressively follow up on the success of the Age of Extinction toyline- and probably push to get new product stocked so we don't end up with eons of pegwarmers like we did with Dark of the Moon. Keep reading for links, wave breakdown, and pricing details!
On the Transformers Facebook page, we have another image outlining the development process for Firefly, the renamed Fireflight figure from the Combiner Wars Aerialbot team. This image also carries the same very generic head sketch, making it less likely to have any significance of its own. The sketches on the right may show minor potential revisions, but for now this image is a good look at the basics of how Firefly's toy came together. Keep reading to check it out!
The Transformers Facebook page has uploaded a Designer Desk image, featuring the newest Aerialbot, Alpha Bravo. The Slingshot substitute is shown at each of the major design steps, from sketch, to model, to production-plastic sample and deco sheet. But the real bonus from this glimpse behind the scenes are the head sketch and helicopter art. The latter could very well be what to expect of a Blades reuse of this mold, and while the head is quite generic, might that be the pre-tool alternate? Only Toy Fair can tell us, but in the meantime keep reading to check out the full image!
