GENERATIONS/FALL OF CYBERTRON

Fall of Cybertron game will be out September 2012 and toys will be out in Fall of 2012!

Jerry Jivoin and Joshua Lamb teased that there are 40 figures planned for the Transformers Generations line next year!

Matt Tieger is here and he's going to show off the game as well as concept art that we saw in Art of Apocalypse.

Matt says that a combiner was on his super-secret list. "Putting together the Combaticons was an easy choice for us."

Vortex will have a big part in the game and making sense of a helicopter like Vortex on Cybertron was fun.

Blastoff, a chocolate brown space shuttle, was more difficult, but it was still fun.

A video is available showing off Bruticus gameplay! Combaticons are looking tot ake over the ship. Combaticons combine! Very detailed, very slick.


He's MASSIVE! He has lasers, can stomp and destroy everything.


Sonic pain wave attack destroys everything in his wake. Virtually impervious to puny Autobot firepower. He is just a massive being that can take Autobots down in one swipe.

Another trailer shows Megatron saying that Cybertron has become a wasteland. Megatron and Prime fight. Prime is looking to leave. It also shows that Cliffjumper is playable; Grimlock eating people in his dinosaur mode; and an epic standoff between Prime and Megatron.

GI JOE CROSSOVER

More information and images can be seen here.

A new HISS tank was designed just for GI Joe Retaliation.

It will be the same figure used for the SDCC Shockwave HISS Tank

The scenario is that Shockwave and Destro make a deal where they exchange Energon for cash.

The B.A.T. will be colored like a Construction.
