With a mere hour until the Fan First Friday event on the Hasbro Facebook page, we have some potential reveals ahead of time thanks to Planet Iacon on Facebook. Two rumored two-packs, both expected to be Amazon exclusives, have been shown and they’re both very exciting. First is Ironhide and Prowl with Ironhide apparently being an extensive retool of his Siege counterpart and Prowl is a retool of the upcoming Earthrise Deluxe Smokescreen figure. Second is Dirge & Ramjet both being retools of the Earthrise voyager Starscream mold. Will both of these two packs be revealed in the next hour? We’ll see shortly! In the meantime, enjoy what may be a sneak peak!
Transformers Generations Classics 3.0
News and images related to Transformers Generations and TF United from Japan. Also referred to as Transformers Generations Classics 3.0 by collectors.

Thanks to 2005 board members Un_Chakal and The Kup for sharing with us in hand images of their recent acquisitions of the recently revealed and upcoming Generations Selects Exhaust and Greasepit. These images reveal both figures’ alternate modes. While our first Greasepit looked as if he would be a slight remold of Earthrise Ironworks, these new images reveal his alternate configuration with new parts. This combination makes a pretty good gas station mode just like the G1 Micromaster base. Exhaust is shown in several pictures showing his sleek vehicle mode as well as a comparison to Siege Megatron.
Both figures are looking sharp. Will you be adding them to your collection? Sound off on the boards!
Well, it took awhile, but we finally have our first look at what this team looks like in their intended combined form! Last year, we saw the release of Voyager Elita-1, along with Deluxes Nova-star and Moonracer, in the Power of the Primes Generations line. After the line concluded, fans were left wondering what happened to the other two limb components? Thanks to the Amazon exclusive release of Greenlight and the upcoming Generations Select release of Lancer, we finally get to see the combined mode of all five female Autobots – Orthia! These images come courtesy of the Gen Zero Facebook group. Also shown are comparison shots of the whole team together in vehicle and robot mode. The team looks great together, showing off a variety of color. There’s even an additional photo of the group with Siege Chromia (whose mold uses similar engineering sans a combiner port).
Update: Even more images thanks toたごーる (@tagoal) on Twitter

Following up on our story yesterday which revealed some stock images for the upcoming Siege Bluestreak, we now have more, very clear images of the upcoming figures. These images come from an ebay page and show clearly how well this mold suits the character. As revealed yesterday, you can see the packaging gets a slight tweak and is branded with a big bad “35” on the side. No word just yet on how this figure will be released – whether it’ll be a major retail release or online exclusive. But keep it here and we’ll update as more information becomes available.

More WFC Siege! I wasn’t joking when I said I was actually grabbing off the shelf main line figures this year 🙂 Today we are sharing the gallery for Deluxe Sixgun, a recently released Deluxe wave 2 figure. He comes packed along with Ironhide, Chromia and Prowl. I was looking forward to Mr. Sixer specifically though because I was/am a big fan of Generations Metroplex, he’s been a centerpiece on the top shelves for a while and always thought he deserved his crew. Now we have Sixgun and Scamper, so come on Hasbro, give us that Slammer. 🙂 Sixgun has a traditonal robot mode with lots of inspiration from the original, breaking down into more than six guns this time, lots of weapon based parts can be reconfigured and attached to other Transformers. He also has a vehicle mode this go round too. Really great upgrade that homages the original gimmick.
On top of Sixgun which is more fresh, we also added base shots for Voyager Optimus Prime and Deluxe wave 1 Hound. I’ve had these here for a bit and decided to at least run some basic shots since I was in a full Siege shooting session.

The Siege begins! The latest iteration of the ever-popular Generations line, War For Cybertron:Siege, has started to show up at US retail. 2005 board member GiganGoji has found Firedrive at his local Target in Washington. Firedrive, Blowpipe and Lionizer make up the first wave of Battle Masters which are the new $5.99 price point for the line. Each Battle Master turns into a weapon for a larger Transformer to wield and come with effect parts.
