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.

Fresh out of US online retail, we've got our first gallery for wave 2 of Deluxe Titans Return! We're starting with Chromedome, who is the most obviously similar to a prior toy. In this case it's the Dead End/Streetwise/etc mold family from which most of the toy's engineering is borrowed. However, don't let that mislead you, as this build sees all of those tricks refined just a bit, in to a very satisfying, solid product! Look forward to a full review coming soon, and for now check out our photo gallery with 123 images in the full article below!
Coming to us from Newsarama we have the first look at the full length preview for next week's issue of The Transformers, #56. Originally intended to ship before this month's issue of More Than Meets The Eye... well, sometimes things just don't work out. But this should hopefully bring everything together and up to speed, and be welcome by those who chose to wait and read the issues in the correct order! We have the preview mirrored in our gallery below, so click through to have a look.
Megatronia is a combiner figure made up of five female Transformers. Megaempress is a voyager sized figure that transforms from robot to truck and wields a large axe. She makes up the main body of Megatronia. Flowspade and Trickdiamond are deluxe sized figures that are each armed with powerful hand weapons. They both transform into speedsters and become the legs of Megatronia. Making up the arms of Megatronia are two more deluxe sized figures, Lunaclub and Moonheart, each armed with large swords and both transform into helicopters.
The Transformers Offiical App for iOS iPhone / iPad and Andrioid have gotten a new makeover with new features! Fans can download the App now from iTunes and Play to see the new more than meets the Combiner Wars look as well as two new missions to "save Cybertron". Beware though, the app has a 13+ rating for all the youngters out there.
With Hasbro's Computron not even in stock for two weeks, we're about to see the launch of Unite Warriors Computron which will hit Japanese retailers on August 27th. Some online stores have already gotten their supplies and begun filling preorders, while retailers elsewhere in the world won't be far behind! To make sure everyone knows, Hisashi Yuki has posted what will probably be the last early photo, with the assembled Computron posed alongside its box. You can check that image out below - keep reading!
