Generation 1
SDCC 2013 - Dead Optimus Prime, Megatron, Sunstrom, Bait Loyal Subjects Convention Exclusives

By BaCon on Friday, July 12, 2013




If you were a fan of the Transformers Movie like we were then you might still be traumatized by the sad truth that befell us all and more importantly our great leader, Optimus Prime. Prime dies and as he dies he turns gray. The color of the powerful warrior is drained from his body, just like the spark which gives him life dims from his chest. So, in the best spirit of one of the more radical variations in the arch of Optimus Prime, we decided to go deep - we present to you in a very large format (8" tall and hugely wide), DEAD PRIME.

This piece is intense - beautiful and ornate deco, illsutrating the strains and punishment from the battle which claimed OP, as well as a detailed look into Optimus Prime's chest. Ultimately the life giving spark which boldly motivated this magnanimous hero. Primes ginormous blaster comes with this beautiful piece. Like the mini figures he has multiple points of articulation and he comes packaged in a special SDCC exclusive box. Available for $115.00/ea, Edition size 300. One of the more rare Optimus Prime pieces in this known Universe. Available Friday, July 19th from 1-2p coinciding with a signing by designer Les Schettkoe. A must have for any Transformers fan. Produced and Manufactured by yours truly (The Loyal Subjects) under License from the equally magnanimous Hasbro, Inc. Available at The Loyal Subjects Booth #5645. For those who can't make the Con, a limited number of pieces will be available online after 2p the same day. www.theloyalsubjects.com



Midnight on Cybertron. Sparkling with light, guiding factions to and from strife. As the Autobots and Decepticons struggle for power and balance, Megatron, the powerful leader of the Decepticons sits proud high up-top his fortified perch, sinking into his thrown, glowing, candescent with the power which surges through his alien metallic frame. Glowing, reflecting the colors of night on this alien planet. Blue. Hungry for power, starving to conquer, to destroy everything in his path. We give you a rare look into the natural candescence of this powerful leader as seen on his native planet.

Megatron - Midnight Cybertron Edition stands 3" tall with multiple points of articulation. He is armed with his blaster and scope. Blister pack and Exclusive to SDCC. Edition of 500. $15.00/each and available Thursday July 18th at 11-12p, coinciding with a signing by designer Les Schettkoe. A must have for any Transformers fan.

Sunstorm - A Seeker in the Decepticon fleet. SUNSTORM, an F-15 Cybertronian Jet has a built in fusion reactor which powers at an extreme potency, giving SUNSTORM extreme speed, and energy in the form of heat and electromagnetic pulses and waves. A definitive threat to all he encounters, even his Seeker comrades. SUNSTORM believes he is powered by divinity, a super natural being in origin. However, he is a product of SHOCKWAVE's cloning experiments with STARSCREAM. SUNSTORM is coated with Electrum, which contains the extreme energy his fusion reactor generates.

More Generation 1 News
Thanks to Weibo member transformers we have news and an image giving us a first look at a new Optimus Prime project from Ori Toy. The shot shows what appears to be some kind of bust of the Autobot Leader. Juding from the name, it could a die-cast-like version of Prime's torso detailing and all the drool worth goodness that goes with. Check out the image till we know more.
The WIP Department Facebook page has posted an extensive gallery from Toy Soul 2014! Among the new things on the page is one heretofore unknown Transformers product from Kids Logic: an SD G1 Devastator! We'll have more info on that as it becomes available, but for now keep reading to see it- and check out WIP Department's page for a LOT of non-Transformers stuff from Toy Soul!
This is a Transformers concept by Andrew Mercer who started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, he thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. Transformat = Reformat + Transform.
User Chobedear has posted photos of the packaging for Year of The Goat Optimus prime, the gold and colorless-clear plastic edition of G2 Laser Prime. Chobedear is also the original source for the Platinum Insecticon set, and has provided some new information. These are both available in Singapore right now, with the Insecticons running the equivalent of about US$100 and Optimus is $155. Let's hope when these eventually reach a retailer in the US, it's at a much lower price! Keep reading to see the new pictures.
Via an anonymous source, we have packaged photos of a Platinum Series three pack of the G1 Insecticons. These toys were reissued several years ago exclusively at Toys R Us - largely featuring replacement names due to trademarking issues, something this set corrects. We have no information on pricing or intended time of release, however there's a cross-sell on the box that shows the "Seeker Squadron" of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. Click through for the photos, and keep watch for future updates on these sets!
