Transformers SDCC 2013 Exclusive Comic-Con Generations and Prime Figures Announced
BaCon - Friday, June 28, 2013


This year’s Hasbro Transformers Comic-Con toys pay homage to the franchise’s 29-year history, and Hero Complex readers get a first look at them. The three special-edition Comic-Con toy sets run the gamut of the brand’s evolution. In preparation for the brand’s 30th anniversary, one of the sets pays tribute to Transformers: Generation 1 — the original toy line that launched in 1984. The Transformers Titan Guardians action figure set features five classic characters: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and Grimlock.

The three special-edition Comic-Con toy sets run the gamut of the brand’s evolution. In preparation for the brand’s 30th anniversary, one of the sets pays tribute to Transformers: Generation 1 — the original toy line that launched in 1984. The Transformers Titan Guardians action figure set features five classic characters: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and Grimlock.

“These are five of the greatest Transformers characters ever,” said Jerry Jivoin, Hasbro’s global brand marketing director for Transformers, in a statement. Jivoin said the figures feature the original G1 colors and sculpts, based on the 1980s designs.

Another toy set — Shockwave’s Laboratory — finds inspiration from today’s popular animated series “Transformers: Prime – Beast Hunters” (currently airing on the Hub network) and features the evil Decepticon scientist and his cloning chamber, as well as a Commander Class Predaking figure.

“We’ve changed things up a bit in this set, making its components a little different than other figures available in the mainline toys,” Jivoin said. “For example, the Voyager-scale Shockwave in this set is in Prime styling but features G1 deco. Similarly the Commander scale Predaking features a translucent Energon-infused treatment.”

The third Comic-Con item is the largest converting Transformers toy ever made, standing at more than two feet tall. The Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex converts from robot into a rolling battle platform, and to an Autobot city, inhabited by 12 miniature Autobot and Decepticon figures, as well as a Legends-scale Scamper figure. The toy is the first in the Transformers Thrilling 30 line, celebrating the franchise’s anniversary.

With the 30th anniversary around the corner and the fourth film, starring Mark Wahlberg, in the “Transformers” movie series slated for a June 27, 2014, release, Hasbro is ramping up its presence at Comic-Con International in San Diego this year. Hasbro is hosting two “Transformers” panels — one previewing the “Thrilling 30? figures and a look at the new “Construct-Bots” line, and the other celebrating the “Beast Hunters” animated series and upcoming “Predacons Rising” movie.

Next week will bring us new comics - or at least comic in the Transformers realm, and we have another early Friday preview from Newsarama for Optimus Prime issue 3. Lost Light which had been originally indicated as shipping alongside has since been bumped back to the first week of February. As usual, you can catch our review of OP #3 early next week, where we're sure to learn all about Thundercracker's love of Hawaiian shirts - but until then, keep reading to see the preview pages!
Thanks to the Toy People blog, we've been treated to some nice photography of a few pieces from Titans Return wave 4. Legends Brawn and Roadburn are shown off well, including a meeting between Titan Master and slightly larger Brawn. The real star however is Sky Shadow, who we get a very good look at across all of its modes, as well as a side by side with Sixshot that seems to show that Sky Shadow is taller than everyone's favorite Ninja Consultant. You can find mirrored photos in the gallery below with a link to the original blog article. Keep reading to see it all!
GENERATIONS CLASSIC LEGION SET - These Classic Legion Class Transformers are tiny at 3 inches tall, but they convert fast from one mode to the other and back, allowing you to enact fierce battles between the Autobots - Optimus Prime and Bumblebee - and the Decepticon sabotage specialist, Starscream! Set of 3 is listed for $12.99 on preorder from bigbadtoystore.com
As reported back in early December, the Power of The Primes voting is getting ready to launch. A placeholder page has already been activated on hasbro.com giving a quick background on the significance of the Matrix of Leadership, along with an outline of the voting process that will take place. The first stage is selecting the contenders, a group of nine who were revealed in the early announcement - Ultra Magnus, Hound, Arcee, Shockwave, Megatron, Star Saber, Thunderwing, the "Unknown Evil" Deathsaurus, and Optimus Primal - with the winners moving on to a final selection poll. Keep reading for a link and to check it all out!
Titans Return Deluxe wave 4 has the unusual distinction of including five different toys on its first run. While case revisions can lead to this after a certain time has passed, since the start of Combiner Wars, initial assortments have uniformly held four different molds. The new-face recolors Krok and Quake join three new molds to make wave 4 - and surprisingly these recolors are getting just as much attention as the new guys! Chefatron has some early reviews of both of these affording a good chance to look over both figures and see if these need to go on your shopping list for the near future. Keep reading to see both videos!
