Generations
Transformers Toys Display and News from 2013 Australia Hobby Toy Fiar - Metroplex, Generations, Beast Hunters
Jack - Monday, March 04, 2013


Thanks again to griffin at Ozformers who once again keeps us up to date on all the Transformers news that is happening down-under. He's posted a report on the The Transformers Wall display that is the largest feature a the Hasbro exhibit this year. Most of what was shown was previewed at Toy Fair last month. The notable items to report include box images and Bios for Generations Springer and Blitzwing, Some new Kreo Sets, New Botshots toys and some bad news that many of the Transformers Prime Season 2 toys will not be offered to fans in Australia. Read details below.


The Metroplex toy was talked about, but not shown due to the figure shown at Toy Fair being the only one Hasbro has right now. The figure will be released in Australia in early Fall to be ready Christmas time. No work on pricing or retailers were mentioned at the show.

The Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Ultimate Class Optimus and Predaking will be released in August 2013 as a non-exclusive retailer wide figure.


Also shown were some new Kreo figures including the 5 packs and a Command base. Many new Bot Shots were also shown including the multi-packs and more that Hasbro says are selling better than expected.

Finally, we get some looks at the boxes for the Generations Voyager class triple changers Spinger and Blitzwing. We have confirmation that Blitzwing does indeed have three rotating faces that pay homage to the Transformers Animated cartoon character. Read their character bio summaries from the boxes below.

Autobot Springer Character Bio Summary

Autobot Springer was built to be a tough guy. Everything about him, from his nickel-plated blaster cannon to his bad-boy attitude, is calculated to communicate exactly what he wants it to-that he's a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners kind of guy. He prefers to fight alone, trusting his skills and luck to get him out of tight spots, rather than relying on his fellow warriors. After all, other Autobots fail. Autobot Springer never does.

Blitzwing Character Bio Summary

With his heavily armored and highly destructive body, Blitzwing has the ice-cold mind of a master strategist-sometimes. At other times, he is a boiling cauldron of rage, waiting for any excuse to unleash his firepower on the nearest target. And now and again he is a chaotic whirlwind of bizarre behavior and intermittent bursts of plasma fire. His unpredictability makes him a poor soldier, but his raw firepower and unstable mind make him a useful tool for a commander as capable as Megatron.

More Generations News
Newsarama has published the full preview for the final issue of the First Strike miniseries. While this issue hits shops next Wednesday, we will still be getting a handful of tie-in titles coming out for a bit - and of course there's always the post-crossover-aftermath-restructuring to look forward to! War for the Core! Deep within Cybertron, the ultimate weapon to kill all Transformers is about to be activated! Meanwhile, Elita One plans to stop the weapon—by killing every human on Cybertron! Either way, looks like some species on Cybertron is going down unless Optimus Prime and Scarlett can save the day… Keep reading to see the preview pages!
You probably never thought you wanted a combiner version of Revenge of The Fallen Jetfire. But you would be wrong, and talented customizer @ChromeTyranno is here to demonstrate that! Starting with a Combiner Wars Cyclonus and incorporating parts from the Uranos unofficial Superion to help remodel it as a Blackbird, the end result is an impressively on-target looking interpretation of one of the few positively-remembered elements of ROTF - and it even has a movie Optimus torso mode! We have several exclusive photos of this project to share, click through to get a good look now!
Just to be entirely clear, as of the time of writing they are not in stock for purchase. But, Walgreens has added a listing page to their website for the exclusive two pack of Cloudraker and Wingspan, bringing the completion of Hasbro's Clone offerings that much closer. Canada has already seen these hit retail in some capacity, in their case via EB Games - though still with the Walgreens sticker on the packaging. This move puts the Clones on track to start hitting around the same time Brainstorm did last year. Keep reading for a link to the page!


With Optimus Prime trapped on Cybertron, the Autobots track down their missing friend, Jazz—and find themselves under fire from humans armed with Cybertronian weapons! Expected in shops Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Keep reading to see the preview!
Following on from our article describing a behind the scenes video introduced by FJ DeSanto and Adam Beechen that was published through the go90 platform, we now have a Facebook video version of that to bring you which can be viewed globally. In the video you'll see a quick sample of animation from the show, including dialogue by Wil Wheaton as Perceptor, plus some recording booth clips of other new cast additions to the web series. The video is embedded below - check it out!
