Rodimus Unicronus No Longer Giving Main Line Representation to Shattered Glass?
ExVee - Thursday, January 18, 2018


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!

The stock photos we've seen already, such as those featured on the Canadian Toys R Us website showed Rodimus Unicronus with a purple Autobot symbol as part of the chest deco, which for many cemented the reference back to Shattered Glass, although much of the deco used already favors what Shattered Glass Rodimus looked like. But the new in hand photos have the chest branded with a Decepticon symbol instead. Interestingly, the back panel of the box which we also got to see from today's early sighting report does show a Decepticon symbol in use, so it looks like this change was neither accidental, nor particularly late in the production process of the toy. This certainly raises the question then of what the original intent really was, and where through the process this change was made that retailer stock photos which otherwise seemed to reflect a finalized deco still showed the purple Autobot insignia.

the reason Rodimus Unicronus now has Decepticon logos on him it's probably due to retailers not understanding the idea of Shattered Glass because the way it's always been is Autobot autobot good guy, Decepticon bad guy. which there is an easy fix just get a a shattered glass... read more

The official Transformers pages on Facebook and Instragam have posted a video announcing the new Fan Vote for 2018! Using the hashtags in this article's title on either of those sites and those sites only, you can vote for one of three two-packs to come in 2019's first chapter in the War For Cybertron trilogy: Spinister vs. Wheeljack, Impactor vs. Mirage, or Needlenose vs. Tracks! Keep reading to see the video.
Hasbro's people said during Toy Fair they have exclusives planned for Generations for this year, though they didn't reveal any specifics. Blast Off and Repugnus had both been discovered via leaked materials and distributor information, but it looks like at least one more figure may be joining their Special Edition ranks this year. Amazon.ca has a listing page for Deluxe Counterpunch, and while the currently attached price and some of the product info are a bit wacky, the associated product code makes sense compared to Repugnus and Blast Off. So what could we be looking at? Keep reading for another round of speculation!

During Toy Fair this year, the Hasbro team gave the invited fan media representatives a special treat, in the first reveal of what the next instance of Transformers Generations would be. Power of The Primes is wrapping up in 2018, and with it comes the conclusion to what Hasbro referred to as the Prime Wars Trilogy. Part of the meaning of this is that 2019 will be the beginning of something completely new, a point they made very clear despite having few real details they could share. But something about the way they talked about it concerned me and got me thinking. The following is a speculative post, so if you'd like to join me on a journey of theorizing the future, please click through and continue reading!
The thing about rampant speculation is that if you open your mouth, you will almost certainly not always be right. But RAC has embraced that, and today he comes back to look over his own pre-Toy Fair predictions and see what happened and what didn't, and how close he got. There's only one category where he can claim 100% accuracy... keep reading to see what it is!
