The weibo user we know as "tf-factory" has done it again, leaking another piece of Transformers print material not long after a dump of Studio Series Megatron's stock photos earlier today. The latest unauthorized release is packaging art for Power of The Primes Inferno, a redeco and minor retool of Combiner Wars Hot Spot. Though despite that we know the mold is Hot Spot, the art depicts it incorrectly using elements from the Onslaught alternate parts trees - a fact most easily recognized in the design of the chest panel (though the shoulders are a giveaway too). You can find the full size image below.
We've got a quick few images on Weibo giving us our first in hand look at the new Cyber Battalion Sideswipe. Part of an assortment with the brand new Shockwave, Sideswipe has been accused of not entirely representing the typical look of the character, and now we have a clearer idea why: It shares fundamental engineering (and probably some of its parts) with Prowl. While many parts look brand new, some of the inner body structure does seem to be shared between the toys, and they seem to transform identically. You can get a good look at the pair side by side in the new photos to compare them for yourself, click through to see!
This evening via twitter, Flame Toys has shared some new photos of an early sample of their upcoming figure of Tarn. Tarn is the first of IDW's Decepticon Justice Division to get an official, licensed figure representation, albeit a non-transforming one. Flame Toys reports that they've finally finished the color master as depicted in these images, which should represent what the full production run will look like later on. We have the photos mirrored for your convenience, check them out just below!
Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB. We have look at the Transformers Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus figure. The Beast Wars Maximal Transmetals II design figure is finally seen out of package. Giving us a look at what the final production edition will look like. Read on to see the figure out of the box in his robot, ape, and jet modes after the jump.
The SDCC 2015 Combiner Hunters
boxset remains one of our all-time favorite SDCC exclusives, providing new color schemes for Arcee, Windblade, and Chromia and equipping them with wonderfully ridiculous gigantic weapons for fighting Combiners. Recently, artist Ken Christiansen
posted his lineart for the packaging to Facebook, showing off both his individual images for the characters as well as the finished composition. All this, plus package lineart for Titans Return
Skullsmasher - click through to see!
Yesterday was International Women's Day, a holiday whose origins lie in the commemoration of women gaining the right to vote in Russia. So... who better to celebrate this than Wreck-Gar, apparently? Via the Transformers Russia
official social media page on VK,
we're treated to our first look at Power of the Primes
Deluxe Wreck-Gar, who is now confirmed as basically the only thing we know of that would be appropriate for the character, a remold of Combiner Wars
Groove. Keep reading to see!
The usual Weibo leaker has posted official stock photography of Cyber Batallion Class Shockwave! Which we were not expecting to have an elaborate transformation, but... that head stick up there sure is something. Hasbro has been so successful in anthropomorphizing a simple shape with antennae and a yellow light that we can't not
read that as just a head sitting on top of a space jet. Keep reading for a closer look.
Via Hobby Search,
we add a pair of significant new photos to this morning's TakaraTomy Power of the Primes stock photo drop.
This time we get a good look at Abominus, as well as Elita-Infin1te. You can also make out the spare "Prime Armor" fists stuck on the back of Abominus' feet, and oh boy
is that color mismatch going to bother us forever. Keep reading to join us in being bothered!
has listed all of August's Power of the Primes
releases for Japan with new stock photos! Beyond decent galleries for each of the Terrorcons, there's also some photos of PP-27 Leader Class Optimal Optimus that confirm that he can indeed assume the Flight Mode of the original toy! Definitely reassuring given that even his package only shows a biped-to-biped transformation. The photos also give us a preview of September's TakaraTomy releases by revealing the identity of PP-28. Keep reading to find out!
While Cyber Battalion Shockwave was seemingly just released in Taiwan, Weibo user NOTRAB
has the first in-hand image of what appears to be a production sample! (The giveaway is the numbers printed across the torso - that's a common thing with Hasbro display samples.) The figure is displayed alongside a Masterpiece Shockwave, and while it's never going to match up to MP-29 in terms of complexity it's honestly quite nice in terms of styling. Keep reading to see the photo!
Toywiz have posted an order page for the Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Volcanicus action figure set that appears to include Grimlock, Sludge, Snarl, Swoop, Slug & Slash.
Listed at $169.99 USD pre-order price to begin shipping in April, this release is close at hand and makes us wonder why it managed to slip past the displayed at Toy Fair last month. No images yet, just a silhouette, but you can read the production info below.
Gao Sheng Wu
, by way of Autobase Aichi,
has posted in-hand images of Cyber Battalion class Sideswipe and Shockwave! Shockwave looks particularly nice, turning into a space jet that reminds us to a minor degree of his Fall of Cybertron
form. Keep reading to see the images!
Thanks to the Australian Transformers fan community Ozformers and its admin griffin, we have first look photos showing the special reveal wave 3 Power of The Primes toys being debuted at Australia's Toy Fair event today. Hot Spot retool Inferno, Slash redeco Cindersaur, and Brawn retool Outback each have the front and back of their sample packaging shown, as well as a bonus image showing the three toys on display in their alternate modes. We expect to see more of these after a hands-on fan event takes place later today. Click through to check out the first photos!
Just up on the Transformers Facebook page is three new promo renders reflecting some remaining Power of The Primes items not debuted at Toy fair in New York. Instead, based on the Facebook post, these were kept to keep a special reveal for Australia's Toy Fair event. Representing wave 3 we have Legends Class Cindersaur, a Decepticon redeco of Slash, Outback, retooled from Titans Return Brawn, (featuring the character's original name again after years of being Fallback) and rounding out with Voyager Inferno, remolded from Combiner Wars Hot Spot. We've mirrored the images, and you can check them all out below.
The usual Weibo leaker has posted some packaging images for Power of the Primes
wave 3! Perhaps most noteworthy is Titan Class Predaking, though we also get package front and back photos for Leader Class Optimal Optimus Primal as well as images for Deluxe Novastar and Prime Masters Bludeon, Octopunch, and Bomb-Burst! Keep reading to see.
