NY Toy Fair 2017 - Top 5 Things We Expect To See
RAC - Monday, January 30, 2017


With less than three weeks to go until Toy Fair, RAC and ExVee have been thinking about what we could see there. So, in the first of three articles going from most to least likely to be shown, we'll look at things we hope to be covering the weekend of the 18th of February. Keep reading to see our picks!

5. Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Bludgeon


Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Bludgeon Render - will we see the finished toy at NY Toy Fair 2017?


We all know he's coming. We've seen the renders and we've seen Blastwave, the new Autobot "prepaint" in the Combiner Force line. But we've not seen a real toy of RID Bludgeon yet, and we're very much looking forward to it. Based off his G1 Pretender shell with influences from the Revenge Of The Fallen Voyager-class toy, Bludgeon is shaping up to be one of the best-looking versions of the character from any universe.

4. Titans Return Wave Four


We've had this wave start to filter out overseas (ExVee's got the Deluxes!), and even seen a Hasbro-sanctioned review from superfan Ben Yee in the final issue of the Transformers Collector's Club newsletter, but Titans Return Wave 4 hasn't even been solicited with any domestic sellers as of this writing. With less than three weeks left to Toy Fair, it stands to reason it will be fully covered there. Pretty much everything in the wave is known, but there's still a few parts that we could stand more and better looks at before it launches.

3. The Robots In Disguise Large Combiners


The Team Bee Combiner Shown In Robots In Disguise Promotional Images. Will We See The Actual Toy At Toy Fair New York 2017?


They've been featured in ads overseas, but so far we haven't seen the actual large-scale combiners that Robots In Disguise has in store for us. Looking to be four part figures with one figure forming the legs, one for each arm, and one the body, we've got Team Bee squaring off with what looks very much to be the RID version of Menasor. We want to see more of that!

2. More of Titans Return Titan Class Trypticon


So far, we've seen a leg. One grayscale leg. It's hoped that we'll at least see an entire grayscale body this time through. Might we get as far as color? We'll see, but I have reason to doubt that we'll see a production-quality version this early (see tomorrow's Toy Fair article for more thoughts on that). But we can't imagine that Trypticon won't be represented in some way.

1. Transformers: The Last Knight Product Line, Premier Edition And Otherwise.


Transformers: The Last Knight Premier Edition Deluxe Barricade is just one of many #TF5 toys we hope to see at New York Toy Fair 2017


For one thing, I'm increasingly certain the Premier Edition is the name for the entire Generations-style line and I want to find out if I'm right. But regardless, we'll get more details on that at Toy Fair along with more - we imagine much more - of Transformers: The Last Knight. What will the rest of the line look like? What characters will we get? There's a lot of questions left to answer about the toyline for the fifth live-action Transformers movie. We've ranked this at the top because, while Generations and RID might both excite us more on a personal level, The Last Knight is where we're most likely to get surprises. And we love surprises at Toy Fair!

More Generations News
To follow up on what we previously reported, More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne returns to James Roberts' story, now known as Lost Light, with this week's issue, #13! Alex has shared his redesign for MTMTE cast member Red Alert, and it - and the explanation for the redesign - can be seen after the jump!
Earlier tonight we shared with you some photos of an apparently early-release copy of Rodimus Unicronus, the new addition to Power of The Primes Leader class wave 2. But there's a bit of a discrepancy with it, as highlighted for us on Twitter by Barricade64. The official images we've seen of the toy since it was revealed have featured aspects of its deco and the slight remolding of the Rodimus Prime head that point to an intentional nod at the Shattered Glass continuity that was a recurring staple of Fun Publications' time producing licensed material for the brand. It seems that isn't quite so much the case anymore. Keep reading!


Amazon Japan has posted stock photos for the majority of the June and July assortments of TakaraTomy's Power of The Primes releases. Firstly, this crushes a lot of last-gasp hopes from the fan community as we find that the Dinobots aren't being redirected to a revived Unite Warriors (instead being the majority of June's individual releases), and no Masterforce-based redeco of Darkwing and Dreadwind is forthcoming. We do get really good looks at a lot of what we're getting as wave 2, including our best look yet at the Alchemist Prime/Submarauder Prime Master. We've mirrored all the images below, click through to have a look!
Thanks to Justin geier who gave us the heads up on the in-hand images posted on Ebay of the Rodimus Unicronus In-Hand Images Power of The Primes Leader Class figure. This first wave of figures is barely out and we're already seeing the repaint hitting the shelves in Wichita, Kansas? Read on to see the in-hand images of Rodimus Unicronus below.
