SDCC 2012 - Transformers Prime Display at Wednesday Night Preview Shows Off Thundertron

By Jack Q on Wednesday, July 11, 2012



The second part of our walkaround of the Hasbro display area includes the Transformers Prime toyline. Not really any surprises here unless you count Thundertron, which makes its debut in October 2012 for $19.99. Unfortunately Ultra Magnus and Skyquake have not been sited, but be sure to check out the entire display in our gallery.

Yeah, I wouldn't kick a Camaro out of the garage myself but I prefer a Mustang by a long stretch. And absolutely. In the last month before Christmas Bumblebee was a no show in my area, and in the last week there were no TFs anywhere. I went to Target and they had 1 FAB Frenzy left. I passed on ... read more

Nah, Bumblebee was a fad and nothing more,as for the new camero it does it on its own. Though I never wanted one myself, I'm more of a Mustang owner myself

Rob is onto something. I think kids may be over it now but at one point, BB was the IT character like Optimus Prime is to most of us. And all of the new Camaro's sold since then probably had a little help from the movies. Hell, i want one and i don't like Bumblebee.

And I still remember Christmas 2007 when there was nary a dan Bumblebee to be found. I eventually had to get a Premium series BB. Seriously, the Target 2 packs disappeared fast, FABs were empty, no Bumblebee of any kind anywhere. I never thought at that time I'd come to prefer it that way....

Who said anything about cry, I said clamor. As in getting all excited and yelling his name upon site. BB and John Cena who they always pronounce 'DON DENA' But like I said, over saturated.

How can they cry about not getting a BB? Every TRU I go to has at least 30 of them in at least 4 different series types. That's like going to the supermarket and crying there's no ice cream

I've never heard a kid cry because they didn't have a Bumblebee, Skywarp on the other hand....

See it's the exact opposite here. I can hear kids clamoring for BB before I even get to the aisle. They over saturated that.

Yes you can and so can I, I still remember when the 2007 toys came out, a dad showed a Bumblebee to his son, and his son said no he wanted Barricade instead. So that is how I know all this about BB is BS. Hopefully the retailers will just too the Bumblebee's on the death shelves of clearance t... read more

Product photos of the third items from the 2015 exclusive boxset have gone up on the Botcon site. Revealed a bit late this past week, Shattered Glass Stepper is the orange, black, and white redeco of Reveal The Shield Jazz which includes the Nightstick Targetmaster mold first seen on this mold with Million Publishing's exclusive Stepper. We're still trying to work out how orange relates to Stepper, but at least Nightstick carries on the blue theme of the exclusives so far. Click through to see the mirrored photos!
Just before the video showing the third exclusive boxset toy went live, the Botcon website was updated with a product page for the second reveal, Battletrap. Recolored from Generations Springer with a new head sculpt, the former Duocon more or less represents its source material - not to mention telegraphing a not-altogether-unlikely Flywheels to come up somewhere along the way. Click through to check out the page and the three new images!
Fun Publications has uploaded the next Botcon boxset reveal video to their Youtube channel. The third figure is "The Loose Cannon", following Packrat as The Thief, and Battletrap as The Muscle. The newest member of "Cybertron's Most Wanted" is Shattered Glass Stepper, from the Reveal The Shield Jazz mold. Stepper features no new parts, and a deco adding a lot of orange over the standard Stepper/Ricochet colors. We've embedded the video and taken some screencaps of the figure, so click through and check them out!
Once again with Botcon drawing ever closer, it's time to nominate characters and people to be inducted in to the Hall of Fame. Hasbro has reached out and asked for our help in choosing those nominees once again, so it's time to open the polls! This year we have three categories waiting for Fans' Choice nominations, so click through now to find out what they are and get links to the individual polls, open until 11:59 pm Central Time, Sunday, April 19th.
This year the Hall of Fame will be inducting a lucky musician or group who have contributed to official Transformers productions, be it movies or TV, or even official music videos! A great many people have had their hands in this field, and we've selected some personal favorites and some that have had significant influence on Transformers with their work. Keep reading, review the names, and let your vote be heard!
