Hasbro have sent us some high-resolution images of their Generations: War for Cybertron: Siege promotional posters. We’ve got two in high resolution for you to enjoy: one showing the entire cast so far, and another focusing on Optimus Prime himself. Both are awesome pieces that would make for nice desktop backgrounds. Check them out attached to this post.
Hasbro have (officially) revealed several new Studio Series figures at Fan Expo Canada. Included are Barricade, 70s Bumblebee with a rusty deco, Sideswipe, Crankcase and WWII Bumblebee. These will be released in 2019. Stay tuned for more details and reveals throughout the weekend!
Courtesy of Loopaza Mega Store on Facebook we have clear images of the recent Figure King Magazine No. 247.
As we had reported previously. this month’s issue has got several pages dedicated to Transformers products. We have some extra images of the next figure, that you will find on their respective threads in our Boards:
- Legendary Optimus Prime. An interesting and complete new mold that uses the Age Of Extinction Voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime engineering as the basis for a bigger (maybe Leader class size) and improved toy.
- Power Charge Bumblebee. A big mold of Bumblebee from the Bumblebee Movie which includes lights and sounds. No discernible differences with the Hasbro release.
- Siege On Cybertron. We can see pictures of Optimus Prime, Sideswipe, Ultra Magnus (prototype), Hound, Cog and the Micromasters (They seem to be the same size a POTP Prime Masters shells).
- Masterpiece Convoy/Optimus Prime V3: New images of the prototype of the highly expected new Optimus Primes mold for the Masterpiece line. The images reveal an impressive poseability.
- Images of Takara Tomy Studio Series Starcream, Movie Bumblebee and KSI Sentry and MPM-06 Ironhide,
- A few Images of Encore Big Convoy, Studio Series DOTM Ratchet, Ironhide and Shadow Raider, Power Of The Primes Throne Of The Primes, Masterpiece Wheeljack, Legends Grotusque and Repugnus and Unite Warriors Superion and Devastator Reissue.
You can check out the mirrored images after the jump and then join to the ongoing discussion on the 2005 Boards.
Over the last couple of weeks, store listings have been cropping up for the Transformers Siege line, with some interesting listings which confirm that yes, there will be some Decepticons in this line after their notable absence at SDCC 2018. Midtown Comics have now added listings for the first wave of Siege toys, which name the remainder of the first wave toys by confirming a Decepticon in every size class. There are no images yet – but we bet these will be officially revealed in early October at New York Comic Con 2018, if not a bit before.
First off, there are the reveals that one could work out through educated guesswork. In the Micromaster size class, we have the Air Strike Patrol – who were also the only Decepticon patrol out of the original four Micromaster patrols in the original 1989 assortment. In the Battle Master size class, we have Targetmaster Blowpipe – partner to Generation 1 Triggerhappy, and doubtless destined to end up in the hands of Titans Return Triggerhappy toys everywhere. And in the Voyager size class, we have Megatron – because what is Optimus Prime without his age old rival? (Probably an Optimus Prime from one of those lines where Hasbro opted not to release Megatron, to be fair)
The remaining two reveals are both major fist-pump in the air, “they’re finally making this guy!” class reveals. In the Deluxe class, we have Skytread. If you don’t know the name, don’t worry – it is what Hasbro renamed Flywheels to for Titans Return. So this suggests we are getting a Flywheels to go with this year’s Battletrap – and we’d go as far as to suggest with Cog’s gimmick of splitting into two vehicles for his transformation, we just might get a fully functional Duocon out of the bargain, although individual robot modes for the components might be unlikely at the pricepoint.
Last, but by no means least. we have Shockwave. A leader class Shockwave, no less. We’d guess that he would go quite well with the other Leader class Decepticon leaders such as Combiner Wars Megatron and Starscream, and Titans Return Soundwave. We’re also betting his alternate mode will be some kind of spacecraft – possibly with wings that just happen to fold down so you can also make a “submarine” mode.
The full lineup of Siege Wave 1 toys is as follows:
- Micromaster two-packs: Race Patrol, Battle Patrol, Air Strike Patrol
- Battle Masters: Firedrive (Firebolt), Lionizer, Blowpipe
- Deluxe: Cog, Hound, Sideswipe, Skytread (Flywheels)
- Voyager: Optimus Prime, Megatron
- Leader: Ultra Magnus, Shockwave
SDCC has come and gone, the F5 Apocalypse has finished over on Hasbro Toy Shop, and today we are finally taking a look at the 2 toy based Transformers exclusives – Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus Throne of Primes edition, and Studio Series Bumblebee’s Retro Rock garage. Both are repaints of relatively new toys with special attention to detail, packaging and paint. The Primal comes with stellar packaging that is worthy of keeping long term even outside the box, a throwback deco, 4 Prime Masters and two new accessories. Bumblebee gets a shiny new paint job and two epic G1 cassette bots that no one expected to be reissued. We’ve run both through sessions and have almost 200 images of them showing what they can do. Hit the links below, and make sure to discuss on the 2005 Boards!
These will also be available at Fan Expo Canada on August 30th – September 2nd, so if you are up north and haven’t scored yet, you’ll get another chance at the show!
As a nice surprise for this Sunday, the last and only solo release of Power Of The Primes Wave 4 Deluxe: Autobot Novastar has been found at US Retail.
TFW2005 Boards user NeilJam found and bought (of course) Novastar at Walmart in Weirton, West Virginia for $16.82. 2005 Boards user Kane Prime also shares that Reddit user R/Transformers found Novastar at Walmart in Walmart in Edinboro, Pennsylvania.
It’s time to dash to your local Walmart to try to grab her and complete your Power Of The Primes collection. Happy hunting!
The official Transformers Instagram and Facebook accounts have uploaded a new video Leaked From Cybertron Video featuring Hasbro’s design manager Jhon Warden presenting the Power Of The Primes Leader Class Evolution Rodimus Prime. The video brings us some very interesting concepts and early ideas that were proposed for this figure.
First, we have a curious “enhanced vehicle mode” where Deluxe figures would integrate and combine over Rodimus alt mode. We can spot Dreadwind and Blackwing on the sides, and Deluxe Jazz on top. On the top rear part we can see a non-produced figure that seems to be in Starscream colors, but with some parts and design similar to Star Saber.
On the second concept art, we can see three of the Deluxe Dinobots attached to the sides and top of the trailer, but we also have a jet connected to the front of the truck. This jet seems to be the concept of Titans Return Prima we saw sometime ago (retool of the Black Shadow/Overlord mold).
To top it all, we have a look at a cool Armored Mode Rodimus Prime, which would have added extra parts to the robot mode.
Some very nice ideas, but designers chose to use the Hot Rod into Rodimus Prime gimmick in the final toy, activated by the Prime Masters (sold separately).
Today’s video follows previous detailed views of Studio Series Blackout and Grimlock & Power of the Primes Dinobots Slash, Sludge, Slug (G1 Slag), Snarl, Swoop, Grimlock, Predaking and Studio Series Jazz, Brawl, and Grimlock.

As usual with our fellow Russian collectors, it sure took time but some new figures are available at retail: Power Of The Primes Prime Masters Wave 1, Legends Wave 2 And Studio Series Wave 1 are out In Russia.
The first 2 waves of Prime Masters finally were spotted at “Detskiy Mir” (Children’s World) store in the shopping center “Vozdvizhenka-Center”, Moscow for ₽300 ($4.71) each toy. Wave 2 Legends Battleslash and Tailgate were also found on the store, so their wave partner Roadtrap should be around too. You can find them for ₽849 ($13.37). These figures are on sale, so it’s a great chance to grab them for a fair price.
It was sure a long wait compared to the rest of the world, but Studio Series Wave 1 Deluxe, Voyager and Leader Class are also finally available for Russian collectors. They were spotted at “TOY.RU” on Novy Arbat (New Arbat Avenue) 13 also in Moscow. Prices are as follows: Deluxe ₽2050 ($32.27), Voyager ₽3040 ($47.88) and Leader ₽4930 ($77.65).
Happy hunting to all Russian fans!
While Wreck-Gar has started popping up on usual Transformers online retailers, many may be noticing his absence at their local Walgreens and wondering where he is. Well the hunt just got a little bit easier as Walgreens has posted a listing for the figure up on their website! Unfortunately he is not sold online, but they provide a nifty store locator that shows stock levels at each location. In addition to that, they also offer the option to have it shipped to a specific Walgreens location for free! Act fast and get your Wreck-Gar while supplies last!
Stay tuned for more Power of the Primes exclusives updates so don’t touch that dial!
Note: The stock amounts refer to Generations Deluxes and not Wreck-Gar specifically.
