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.

Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex SDCC Edition ($149.99, HasbroToyShop.com or Comic-Con International booth #3329)

The largest converting Transformers toy changes from robot mode to rolling battle platform mode, and also converts into an Autobot city. This special-edition version features two giant blasters, metallic coated armor, chrome foil stickers, as well as a Legends-scale Scamper figure and 12 miniature Autobot and Decepticon figures to inhabit his Autobot city mode.

More Generations News
Following up on the pictures of Blitzwing and Ramhorn from earlier today, we now have some good looks at Octone, the latest renaming of Octane, previously known as Tankor. Ghani Madueno and Patrick Leonard Mayo have both shared nice photos of this brand new toy in the Cybertron Philippines Facebook group, giving an all-important overview of the remodeled jet mode, a close up of the new robot face, and a group shot of the three Decepticon Triplechangers all together in one scale finally. The photos are mirrored below, so go have a look!
Xavier Basa was lucky enough to have been able to pick up the new Generations toys offered at the The Last Knight launch event in the Philippines, and he's shared some out of package photos of two of them so far on Twitter, and Talk Transformers on Facebook: Voyager Blitzwing, and Titan Master Ramhorn. Both are reused molds, Blitzwing sharing with Megatron, and Ramhorn being a retool of Shuffler from wave 4. Each mode of both toys is shown, plus Ramhorn's head mode on Leo Prime, and a side by side shot of Blitzwing with Astrotrain. We've mirrored the photos, keep reading to see them all!
Get ready to head back to the comic shops next Wednesday, because it's almost time for the newest issue of the current-best Transformers title, Till All Are One. Coming from Newsarama we have the full length preview for issue 9, featuring an extended courtroom scene. Will we be in store for a full issue of Law & Order: Cybertron? Guess we'll have to wait until next week to find out! Click through to see the preview pages.
With Titans Return Wave 4 just beginning to filter through to US retailers, it's probably not the best time for another wave of figures to begin appearing elsewhere in the world. Well, too bad, because Blitzwing and Octone were spotted at a Transformers: The Last Knight event in Manila by Twitter user @neurowing along with Titan Master Ramhorn! Keep reading to see the photos.
From the iTunes store tonight we've got the early edition preview of Lost Light #5, featuring seemingly not the first three pages of the issue, but definitely three pages from this issue and the continuing adventures on Functionist Cybertron. And from writer James Roberts we have an extra two panels not included in the iTunes selection as an extra bonus for first look. It's all in the gallery below, click through to check it out!
