UK Toy Fair 2012 Transformers News - Generations, Prime Weaponizers, Optimus Maximus, Kre-O, More
Jack Q - Tuesday, January 24, 2012


Thanks to the kind fans at FMH who have posted a report on the Transformers display at the Toy Fair 2012 event going on in the UK this week. The report offers up some insights on the shape of things to come this year.

Highlights include new on new products coming to the Generations line that is to include 8 new figures. The Transformers Prime Weponizers with Leader class figures that feature 4-modes of play and more. Then there is this new thing they call Optimus Maximus. A transforming figure who's alternate mode is a base for your Cyberverse figures.

According to Full Metal Hero, Hasbro has nice looking display this year with the traditional suite of their own for showing new product to prospective retailers. Again this year, no photography was allowed but here's the highlights of what we will see in the coming year.

GENERATIONS
This will be great news for many fans that 8 new figures are coming to the Generations line. FMH reports on a "hard copy" of Jazz that looks like a sports car, with 4 wheels, and has a Cybertronian look to it. They confirm the line will carry on under the Generations name and may include Grimlock.

PRIME WEAPONIZERS
We've had some sneak peeks and reveals on these new guys and it appears we're gonna see more of them with a full reveal likely at Toy Fair 2012 in New York City. FMH reports they got to see Leader class Optimus Prime and Bumblebee action figures on display that have been simplified to younger fans. The new figure are reported to have four modes of play that include concealed weapons and other features.

OPTIMUS MAXIMUS
Cyberverse gets more gnarly with even more Base goodness. Let your imaginations run wild for a Figure / Playset that is large enough to transform from a "figure" into a base for your Cyberverse action figures. That's some serious scale, larger then a Leader class we have to guess. FMH says the thing has lights, sounds, and firing rockets that you can shoot.


NEW KRE-O
Kre-O continues with new sets of multiple figures revealed such as Decepticon Ambush thatis a Kreon base. Cycle Chase pack includes Prowl and 2 Kreons. Decepticon Helicopter that is a Starscream look-alike repaint with 3 Kreons and "quad bike." Kre-O Stealth Bumblebee, a black colored mold with 3 Kreons. Transformers Prime Kre-O Race Car Showdown, Knock Out and Wheeljack 2 pack with Kreons mini figures. Kre-O G1 Optimus Vs Megatron set features Optimus Prime vs G1 Megatron with tank mode, playset and 3 kreons. And, if we did have enough of them, Kre-O Devastator. Its a 9 in 1 playset that mixed of G1 style robots with the movie colors on 4 on them. FMH reports they don't look anywhere as bad as the controversial ROTF Devastator figure set.

OTHER TRANSFORMERS STUFF
FHM has reported those items as the highlights of the show with the rest of the display dedicated to much of the product we know of already including Cyberverse Legion, Commander and Cyberverse Vehicles class figures, The Transformers Prime First edition, RID Revealers, Powerizers, and Weaponizers. Odds and ends include Battle Masks and Bot Shots.

Sunstorm and Icestorm would be awesome, and after seeing that G2 Sandstorm up for auction I wouldn't mind one of those either. Releasing a U.S. version of Stepper/Ricochet is a no-brainer to me, but it would irk the folks that paid $100+ to import him

I am really hoping optimus maximus looks like metroplex or FM, or another unique cityformer, and not like a oversized optimus prime...

I would love to see Kup repainted into Orion Pax, but mostly I want a Sunstorm and Icestorm

I hope Generations isn't rather than another lame toy only "nemesis Prime"! And maybe an American version of Stepper/Ricochet. And what about an Orion Pax from Kup? (If Takara can do it, why not Hasbro?)

Out of all those, only the Generations fully gets my interest. Although I am very interested in getting TF Prime Wheeljack, if I can find him. A War For Cybertron Jazz will be very welcome for sure.

Yeah, Kre-o really should be a poll option, but regardless Optimus Maximus would've (and did) gotten my vote. I hope OM is half as awesome as I imagine him to be.

Why doesn't the poll have Kre-O as an option? Its continued existence is the best news in the report!

I really like the news about Kre-o Devestator. at the very least it's a new mold combiner. Regarding,the 2012 Generations FOC 8 figures. was their any size levels mentioned? will they all be deluxes. I'd prefer some be deluxes,some be voyagers & one or two be ultra's. I'm kind... read more

RAC reviews SDCC Tablet Soundwave! It's a nice figure, about Voyager sized, and you might think the articulation is a mite weird and limited in places - but that's a tradeoff for its one trick. And what a trick. Click here to read the review!
Soundwave is an impressive figure! It turns into a super-thin tablet and amazingly, is not really frustrating to transform in any way. The only downsides: it doesn't look much like Soundwave, and that backpack is so close to being a fun little Laserbeak figure. Keep reading to see 65 images of Soundwave!
TFND has posted a wealth of images from their 12th annual event in Taipei, and somebody brought a lot of interesting toys to the con, some as yet unreleased! Most notably on that front there's MP Delta Magnus, and Unite Warriors Computron standing shoulder to shoulder with his Combiner Wars counterpart! (And stealing his hands and feet!) All that and more after the jump, so keep reading!
Just a simple reminder that if you want SDCC Fortress Maximus, the Titan Force boxset with Sentinel Prime, Brainstorm, and Windblade, Tablet Soundwave, or the Transformers And GI Joe boxset, today is the day to get them on HasbroToyShop! They all read "out of stock" as of this writing, but should be available for purchase later today. Keep reading for links to all four sets as well as a general link for Hasbro's SDCC exclusives!
Artist James Raiz has posted a video of the highlights of his trip to Shanghai for Cybertron Con 2016! The 4-minute video gives us a taste of the sights and sounds of the con as well as guest appearances by artists Alex Milne and Sara Pitre-Durocher and writer John Barber, as well as Peter Cullen!
