And to go along with that batch of Generations images, here are some official stock photos for the upcoming Robots in Disguise animated series! The batch includes Legion Optimus Prime and Strongarm (new Autobot character), Hyper Change Bumblebee, One-Step Underbite (new Decepticon character) and Sideswipe, and Warrior (Deluxe size) Bumblebee - who is, we remind you, the main star of the show. Check them all out below!
And now, the moment you've all been waiting for... official images for the newly-revealed Generations: Combiner WarsAerialbots and Stunticons! The Aerialbots, comprised of traditional team members Silverbolt, Air Raid, Skydive, and Firefly (originally Fireflight. Darn those trademark laws!) are joined by Alpha Bravo (a very Vortex-like character replacing Slingshot) and honorary Aerialbot Powerglide (revealed at BotCon last month), who is revealed to also transform into a weapon capable of being wielded by the Aerialbots' combined mode, Superion!
Meanwhile, their Decepticon counterparts, the Stunticons, are comprised of Motormaster (a redeco and heavy retool of the previously-revealed Voyager Optimus Prime), Breakdown, Dead End, Dragstrip, and newcomer Offroad, an apparent duo-homage of Generation One Ruckus and Wildrider, whose vehicle mode deco Offroad's vehice mode is based on. Also included in Team Stunticon is an as-of-yet-named Legends-class sports car, rumored to be Blackjack, based and named after the Generation One character of the same name, who forms the chestplate of the Stunticons' combined mode, Menasor!
Site owner Seibertron was on the scene of the post-Hasbro Panel showroom display, and we here at Seibertron.com bring to you our first look at new Kre-O Kreons Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Starscream! These Kreons are similar to the Microchange Kreons of before: same idea, but different execution. How different? The robot and vehicle modes are much larger, and, unlike Kre-O sets from before, these require no partsforming at all! Take a look at the four images below, courtesy of Seibertron himself!
Also, according to the Big Man himself, eveybody's favorite Dinobot Grimlock will also be joining Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Starscream in the first wave, and a Triplechanger character (who, we do not know at this time) is planned for release during Fall 2014. No images at this time. Sorry, Kreon fans!
Some sneaky news from the SDCC 2014 Transformers panel, as the Hasbro News Twitter account took questions - for one hour - from fans during the preview evening, and are currently answering a selection of them. The first question answered concerns the possibility of more Generations Titans figure, after last year's Metroplex (and its SDCC 2013 exclusive counterpart!).
Metroplex was tied to the Fall of Cybertron game. Big character, big product & you guys love him.
We're always looking to do things that tie together with our great stories.
If you guys continue to love the great products we put out we're going to continue to make them!
We always get lots of Q's abt everyone's favorite characters from #Transformers lore.
We look at Transformers and there’s 1000’s of wonderful characters to choose from each year.
We think about all the great fans of all ages from Rescue Bots fans to Generations fans.
So we try to balance the toy line each year to pick characters that fans of all ages will love.
(Someone hasn't been reading their IDW Publishing comics of recent..)
Third question is about more characters, Hot Rod and Blurr!
Hot Rod & Blurr – some of our favorites & great characters from our history that many know & love!
Each year we think about the stories we want to tell to Transformers fans of all ages.
We want to make sure we’re tying the product line with the stories being told.
We love to get fans’ feedback as we move forward and build new stories for all of our fans.
All of which sounds like the most non-committal definitely maybe answer in a while. But feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub discussion boards: what do you think? Will we get more Titan Class figures? Would you like to see more of a particular character?
Another update from the Hasbro booth at SDCC 2014, and it's Angry Birds / Transformers related: check out these two convention exclusives, only available today from the booth (and it seems the t-shirt has already sold out, too!), featuring Angry Bird art takes on some iconic Transformers characters.
The panel and new reveals may be over, but the coverage of San Diego Comic Con is still coming! Thanks to our (boss)man on the scene, site owner Seibertron, we have our gallery of images shown at the Hasbro Brand Panel! The gallery ranges from recaps of already-released figures, soon-to-be-released figures, and newly revealed figures, such as the Generations: Combiner Wars Aerialbots, Stunticons (whose leader, Motormaster, like Bombshell, has reclaimed his true name), and our first look at a handful of toys from the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) line, including our first look at the Warrior-class (the new Deluxe-class) Bumblebee! The full gallery can be viewed here.
Enjoy these images for now, as later in the day we'll get the official images of these new reveals!

Voyager Optimus Prime shown at BotCon combines with Combiners
Ladies and gentlemen, put on your anti-nerdgasm pants! Starting off our coverage of San Diego Comic Con 2014, we have our Breakfast Event images, which show off our first look at combiners Superion (first teased at BotCon last month) and Menasor! These combiners, part of next year's Generations: Combiner Wars series, are prototypes and show display pieces, hence the hot glue on spots and some wibbly bits and pieces here and there.
As many have guessed, Menasor's central figure is indeed a Motormaster redeco of the Generations Voyager Optimus Prime (also first revealed at BotCon) figure! Also worth noting is that Superion and Menasor are joined by additional characters which are not actually a part of the traditional Aerialbot and Stunticon teams... Superion wields Legends Powerglide as a weapon, and Menasor uses an as-of-yet revealed Legends buddy to form Menasor's traditional car-torso-shield!
Check out the images below, which have been mirrored from our full gallery of the Breakfast Event, which can be viewed here!
Courtesy of the Transformers Asia Facebook page, and thanks to multiple notifications from Seibertron.com members including Autobot Genocide and site sponsor Kapow! Toys, we get a look at this year's ACG Hong Kong convention exclusive figure - or at least, its Optimus Prime looking silhouette (we may be wrong yet!). The convention will run 25-29th July, and we will have more information then from the Hasbro booth itself; in the meantime, check out the teaser below.
