SDCC 2017 - Out of Box Primitive Skateboarding Transformers Convention Exclusive Set
BaCon - Thursday, July 13, 2017


Thanks to OzFormers, we have some out of box looks at the SDCC 2017 Primitive Skateboarding and Shreddicus Maximus Transformers exclusive set. This is one of the different exclusives Hasbro has to be trying more at SDCC like the ill-fated Rock n Roll themed Knights of Unicron.

Thankfully, this modern with a skateboarding focus IS really pretty cool with a nice black & gold, non-Nemesis, paint decoration and extra playset for Shreddicus. Read on for the full look with details, after the jump.
As noted in a previous post, this will be an exclusive at SDCC next week, for US$50. Considering the regular retail price of Leader Class Generations toys are currently US$45, this is probably one of the best value SDCC Transformers toys, for only being $5 more, but having a fancy display box and extra accessories.

Since it is partnering with an actual American skateboarding business, I would be surprised if it shows up in other countries (some SDCC exclusives do, particularly in Asia, and occasionally in Australia - the last one showing up here was Devastator from the 2013 SDCC).

The box - very nice in black and gold... and the watermark effect on the front and back is actually embossed (textured to the touch), which is also a very nice touch. The black eyes makes me think of the dead Optimus in the 1980s cartoon (post-movie episodes), and I think the eyes should have been done in grey or gold.

More Generations News
The usual leaker has posted an image of a model sheet for Grimlock that matches the Cyberverse design, except with a significantly higher level of detail and a slightly differently stylized dino mode. Is this the Cyberverse design, or part of the possible "Evergreen" styled reboot of Generations, or something else? Either way, keep reading to see the design and stay tuned for our Toy Fair 2018 coverage as Hasbro makes its presentation within the hour!
Remember Mighty Muggs? One of Hasbro's attempts to get in on the lucrative vinyl minifigures market, Mighty Muggs was moderately successful about 10 years ago and then more or less disappeared with the exception of the occasional show-exclusive. But in the intervening years Funko conquered the world with PoP! vinyls, so Hasbro's going to try once again for a piece of that pie. Keep reading for the reveal of the new, improved Mighty Muggs courtesy of Screeen Rant!
Tonight, just hours before Toy Fair 2018 kicks off with Hasbro's fan media presentation, we finally have confirmation of Power of The Primes Deluxe Wave 2 at retail in the US. signals3 picked up a Moonracer at a Walmart in Springfield, Missouri, albeit by taking it from an unopened shipping case. While we don't endorse that behavior, it does tell us that the Deluxes are in to the distribution system and should start properly hitting shelves soon, filling in the last hole in US availability for wave 2.

THUNDERCRACKER IN: STARSCREAM: THE MOVIE! The good news: somebody finally gave Thundercracker money to make a film. The bad news: it's Starscream, and he wants a biographical picture to win over the people of Earth. Will Thundercracker stand by his principles or... well, no, he makes the movie.
