From our source that provided the picture of the highly anticipated Combiner Wars Devastator earlier, we now have a second blurry/distant look at Devastator that shows a little bit more of the robot mode. We cropped the photo to help all of us get a slightly closer look. This photo is from the same anonymous user who provided us with the first picture we posted earlier today at this news story.

Fellow Transformers fan daimchoc has shared a photo from the currently happening Nuremberg Toy Fair - showing off a glimpse of the big green mean machine itself: Devastator! Whatever the rumour train was carrying, this definitely sends off a loud whistle in the right direction - just look at the image below for the size of this upcoming Generations figure!
Following the recent announcement that Robots in Disguise will start airing in March 2015, the official Hasbro Youtube Channel has posted two new videos featuring Fixit and Optimus Prime. The Optimus Prime may be a spoiler to some viewers.
Seibertronians Downshift and Dead Metal have made us aware that there is more news and rumours coming from Toyfair HK, another show going on right now. An attendee summarized the transformer highlights in a post on actoys.net. It adds more detail to some of the recent rumours and gives more information regarding Generations Devastator, along with listing more G1 rereleases. As in all rumours, the statements below should be taken with a grain of salt and could easily be dispelled in the coming weeks or months. Afterall, there is yet to be an official announcement for most of these products. The original post is translated below by cybertron.ca user chroma 23.
US G1 re-release tripticon, conheads set, blitzwing & astrotrain set, Perceptor & Blaster set: cassettes included looks like to be the animals, and the shoulder cannon on perceptor has some special purpose, rumored to be able to view slide shows
IDW Devastator is indeed Titan class, because it's designed for all ages, do not expect much in terms of individual bot's transformations (complexity i presume). displayed toy looks like a WIP hand-made (or painted) prototype and joints do not seem to move (my guess it's like the combiner wars at SDCC where the joints are hot glued?). for combiner wars, the latter half of the year will feature defensor, but for now they only showed hotspot but doesn't look too interesting. powerglide will have a purple decepticon repaint but dunno what the new name will be. other combiner wars legend class (like powerglide) include warpath and a few others that i couldn't remember. there will be a green repaint for the tank (assuming he's referring to warpath)
japan releases: will have alot of deluxe class characters, but they aren't main characters do i didnt pay attention. PSX prime and MD megs is not bad but do not seem to stand pretty well. bundles (my guess is JP releases of generations figures?) will have additional chrome and more G1 accurate colors
MP: there will be 5 MPs this year. MP25 is the same as the rumors going around (tracks/ironhide). accessories include.....something (my guess will be Raoul and a radio (blaster) in reference to season 2 episode 36 "auto-bop"). they showed a gray prototype and looks posability is good. MP21G (G2 bee) will only include a jet pack replacing the exo-suit, but the price will be adjusted and reduced
It’s that time of year again, where Va’al enters the UK Toy Fair and reports back on all of the Tranformers goodness he can find. While there isn’t quite as much news out of the UK Toy Fair this year as last, there are still a few exciting products to tell you about.
From the Toy Fair 2015: Hasbro Press release:
Beginning in March, the newest animated series, TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise will begin a brand new chapter for the TRANSFORMERS brand with all new storytelling and gameplay. The new series, airing on Cartoon Network, is filled with humour, fun, adventure, and animated ina cooler, lighter, brighter style that kids are going to love.
Transformers: Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime One Step
This isn’t just a one-step changer, it’s a huge one-step changer. Standing at over 11 inches tall, this Optimus Prime figure converts from robot to truck mode and back again, in one motion. The transformation is simple; just pull the trailer apart to go from vehicle to robot, then push the chest and swing the cab down to convert back. In addition, with the Transformers: Robots in Disguise app downloaded to your mobile device, you can scan the shield to unlock a character, weapons, etc. The Optimus Prime One Step is expected to be available from Autumn 2015.
Transformers: Rescue Bots High Tide Rescue Rig
High Tide, a new Rescue Bot recruit in the Transformers: Rescue Bots programming, is introduced here in toy form. The High Tide Rescue Rig includes a mini-sub that converts automatically from vehicle mode to bot mode. High Tide can also command his Rescue Rig ship by placing the figure inside of the center hatch, then raising the levers to reveal him in the commander’s seat. To convert him to vehicle mode, press the levers down and twist the hull – now High Tide is converted to mini-sub mode. The playset also includes a crane with rescue equipment, front storage hatch, and capture cage with trap door. The Rescue Rig is compatible with the Rescue Bots Rescan figures and mini-figures to ignite the imagination.
Also spotted were the super Bumblebee one step changer (similar in size to Stomp & Chomp Grimlock), a Bumblebee blaster gun that looks like a car, and a Decepticon Hunter sword.
That’s all we’ve got for confirmed news for now, but read on for rumors and speculation from an anonymous, but reliable, source.
**The following is rumor and should not be considered speculation until officially confirmed.**
Rumor has it that besides the already much-speculated upcoming releases of Takara Masterpiece Tracks and Masterpiece Ironhide, that we could see Tank Megatron, Ratchet, Shockwave, Blitzwing, and Galvatron.
That’s it for now… but if more news breaks at the UK Toy Fair, you’ll read it here first!
A Transformers Generations Combiner Wars thread over on the /toy/ part of 4Chan has yielded an interesting banner image, allegedly from the upcoming UK Toy Fair. You can take a look for yourselves below, but what seems to be the biggest piece of news is a white redeco of the current combined mode for Ultra Prime/Optimus Prime, along with a Hot Rod-esque Legends car and Blackjack's swordhilt weapon. What do you make of it?
ABC's The Goldbergs is a love letter to show creator Adam F. Goldberg's childhood in the '80s and the decade itself. Because of Mr. Goldberg's love affair with the '80s and everything contained therein, our beloved Transformers have made a few appearances on the show and have even been a major part of the plot lines.
This week's episode just so happens to be one of those episodes and tackles the touchy subject of worrying about life and death, from a child's point of view. What better time to go see Transformers: The Movie?!
After watching the film with his best friend and hero, his grandfather Albert, Adam decides to film his own sequel to Transformers: The Movie and it's in this portion of the show that we really see just how much the thought of death impacts a child, and brings a poignancy to the episode. Also, it totally covers the death of Optimus Prime and speaks for an entire generation of kids (who are now adults) who sat there crying inside and out.
Good news for toy aficionados! Courtesy of TFW2005 user D-Drive, we have information of case breakdowns (notBreakdown) for as-of-yet seen Robots in Disguise (2015) products! Worth noting, though, is that according to the user, they are Canadian-based, so what we see tonight might be different than what we will see in the future. They are as follows:
TRANSFORMERS RID DECEPTICON HUNTER STAR WARSWORD BLASTER (4)
TRANSFORMERS RID NERF MEGA 1-STEP OPTIMUS PRIME (3)
TRANSFORMERS RID SUPER BUMBLEBEE (SFX)(2)
TRANSFORMERS RID MINICONS DEPLOYERS (2)
TRANSFORMERS RID MASKS ASST (6)
TRANSFORMERS RID BUMBLEBEE BLASTER (4)
TRANSFORMERS RID MINICONS (8)
Also, to lend credence to the ever-popular Generations: Combiner Wars Devastator rumor (now confirmed to be happening), D-Drive was also able to find out how many Devastators fans will be getting per case:
TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS DEVASTATOR (2)
2013's release of the behemoth Generations Metroplex also contained two per case, so this small update could also confirm that Devastator will be classified as a Titan-class figure.
What do you, dear readers, think of this small update? Excited for Devastator? Itching to know what these RiD'15 products look like? Share your thoughts in the Energon Pub, and join us in the month-long wait until Toy Fair 2015, where these products will more than likely get their spotlight.
