Generations
Transformers Toys Display and News from 2013 Australia Hobby Toy Fiar - Metroplex, Generations, Beast Hunters
Jack - Monday, March 04, 2013


Thanks again to griffin at Ozformers who once again keeps us up to date on all the Transformers news that is happening down-under. He's posted a report on the The Transformers Wall display that is the largest feature a the Hasbro exhibit this year. Most of what was shown was previewed at Toy Fair last month. The notable items to report include box images and Bios for Generations Springer and Blitzwing, Some new Kreo Sets, New Botshots toys and some bad news that many of the Transformers Prime Season 2 toys will not be offered to fans in Australia. Read details below.


The Metroplex toy was talked about, but not shown due to the figure shown at Toy Fair being the only one Hasbro has right now. The figure will be released in Australia in early Fall to be ready Christmas time. No work on pricing or retailers were mentioned at the show.

The Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Ultimate Class Optimus and Predaking will be released in August 2013 as a non-exclusive retailer wide figure.


Also shown were some new Kreo figures including the 5 packs and a Command base. Many new Bot Shots were also shown including the multi-packs and more that Hasbro says are selling better than expected.

Finally, we get some looks at the boxes for the Generations Voyager class triple changers Spinger and Blitzwing. We have confirmation that Blitzwing does indeed have three rotating faces that pay homage to the Transformers Animated cartoon character. Read their character bio summaries from the boxes below.

Autobot Springer Character Bio Summary

Autobot Springer was built to be a tough guy. Everything about him, from his nickel-plated blaster cannon to his bad-boy attitude, is calculated to communicate exactly what he wants it to-that he's a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners kind of guy. He prefers to fight alone, trusting his skills and luck to get him out of tight spots, rather than relying on his fellow warriors. After all, other Autobots fail. Autobot Springer never does.

Blitzwing Character Bio Summary

With his heavily armored and highly destructive body, Blitzwing has the ice-cold mind of a master strategist-sometimes. At other times, he is a boiling cauldron of rage, waiting for any excuse to unleash his firepower on the nearest target. And now and again he is a chaotic whirlwind of bizarre behavior and intermittent bursts of plasma fire. His unpredictability makes him a poor soldier, but his raw firepower and unstable mind make him a useful tool for a commander as capable as Megatron.

As of writing, the brief voting period in the 2018 Transformers fan vote event is nearly over with. While we await the results of the choice of one of three Deluxe VS sets to be released next year (from which Impactor vs Mirage appeared to be taking a lead at one point), Hasbro has released via Facebook a post clearing up some small details, such as the incorrect identification of Impactor as a Decepticon in the sample art. For the most part it doesn't offer much, but one of the answers actually does give us something to work from. Keep reading to find out what!
Nick Roche, writer and artist of Last Stand of the Wreckers and Sins of the Wreckers, has announced that he will be finishing his Wreckers story in a one-shot to be titled Requiem of the Wreckers! Reuniting with colorist Josh Burcham, Roche has also announced that fellow Transformers artists Guido Guidi and Geoff Senior will also be contributing to the book! Keep reading to see the teaser image and announcement.
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!
We're capping this year's Toy Fair 2018 with the official images Power of the Primes Transformers action figures shown at this years show.
