Hasbro have updated their Transformers online product catalog with two more Bot Shots Three Packs. The third assortment of 2013 three packs adds a set with Ultra Magnus, Red Alert and Super-Bot Mirage into the mix. The second new set in the assortment is Predacon heavy, with a red Twinstrike, Skystalker, and Super-Bot Bumblebee. Ultra Magnus is notable for being a recolor of the Transformers Cybertron Optimus Prime, but also being in a deco that manages to make him look like a slightly off-colored Optimus Prime. [Read more…]
Next in their string of new product reveals, the official Transformers Facebook page has uploaded official images of the Bot Shots 2013 Three Packs Assortment, wave 2. This second wave is already out through Hasbro Toy Shop and was shown off at Toy Fair 2013, none the less, here are official images of the two sets, Sergeant Kup, Scourge and Blitzwing, and Optimus Prime, Cindersaur and Jazz. Those who collect Bot Shots may spot that Blitzwing is a reuse of the 2012 Decepticon Brawl in clear purple, Kup is a redeco of Spin Shot Ironhide, and Scourge is a redeco of his single packed release. In the other set, Optimus Prime is based on Transformers Cybertron Optimus Prime – a cool touch! [Read more…]

2005 Boards member Darkhawk79 has shared with us some more images of upcoming Bot Shots releases. This time out we have a look at the very cool Warpath Launcher set along with the next wave of three packs. The Warpath Launcher marks the first time we’ve seen Warpath as a Bot Shot, and he is an awesome little bot – his face is packed with character and attitude, complete with one eye larger than the other as if he is raising an eyebrow to say “did you just make me WHAM BAM! crash into that wall to make me transform?!”
The new assortment of three packs includes a few other cool new additions to the series – the first includes a redeco of the new Spin Shot Ironhide as Sergeant Kup along with Transformers Cybertron inspired Predacon Scourge and a Super Bot Blitzwing (redeco of the first Decepticon Brawl Bot Shot). The second set features a Transformers Cybertron homage Optimus Prime, a Super Bot Jazz, and all-new Predacon Cindersaur!

Another pair of Bot Shots have been revealed through an update to the Hasbro Bot Shots page. The page now includes some information and bios on the first Predacon Bot Shots. Twinstrike (aka Sinnertwin) was among those on the Hasbro display at Toy Fair; we’ve got confirmation that it is indeed him from this update. This update also reveals that the Dinobot looking Predacon is in fact going to be named Scourge – he’s already got a redeco coming in a three pack with Sergeant Kup and Blitzwing, too. Third of this trio of new Predacon Bot Shots reveals is Cindersaur – and to the best of our knowledge, he’s new to us! No word on the assortments that these three are debuting in, but expect to potentially see them appearing from the next assortment onwards. [Read more…]
