Fellow Seibertronian Decepticon Sunstorm found a post online from TF Fan Chainclaw which relates to images of unrevealed toys he saw. He gives a detailed list of his thoughts on them below but here is the breakdown. Remember of course, that since this is all unrevealed items, take this with a grain of salt, as we do when we usually get rumours of this kind. Not only that these are subject to a persons point of view, but there have been many occurences of Hasbro not releasing a product that was being developed. Now onto the latest rumours of toys that might come out at the tail end of 2016 or in 2017:
Headmaster Laser Prime which looks to be inspired by both Star Convoy and G2 Prime.
Headmaster Triplechanger Megatron which can turn into a jet and a tank. Will probably be used for Blitzwing.
Getaway as a repaint of Chromedome.
Headmaster Triggerhappy (his G1 toy was a Targetmaster).
Headmaster Hot Rod
Headmaster Triplechanger Alpha Trion (while we have seen the art for this toy, Chainclaw did expand on the vehiclemode looking like Vector Prime's).
Tidal Wave which may share the mold with Broadside. Probably a triple changer and thus a voyager headmaster.
Decepticon Clones made up of components looking like the Predaking ones. For example there was a Horri-Bull which could double as Tantrum.
Legends Sharkticon (Gnaw)
Legends Reflector (Shockwave redeco)
SDCC Fort Max comes with Red Sword. This was already hinted at in a previous leak which mentioned an exclusive sword.
Here is the detailed breakdown with extra descriptions and thoughts on what Chainclaw saw:
Chainclaw wrote:An anonymous friend of mine showed me a bunch of stuff on his computer last night that Hasbro is working on. A couple things were just concept art, or those packets they show investors. But the majority was actual toys. Anyways, he said I could talk about it online, as long as I didn't mention him by name.
So that said, it would be great to have some images, to represent what I saw when I'm talking to people. So I have a series of requests that are spoilers of what's coming later in 2016 and 2017. So anyone not wanting to know shouldn't read past this point. Cool?
Okay, I saw a Headmaster Star Convoy / Laser Prime from G2. It pretty much looks like Star Convoy, except that star-ish shaped yellow thing on his chest looks blockier, like a letter T. And his shoulders are very Laser Prime, sticking up high, with two circle things on the front of each one. In truck mode he's long nosed, but red. Not black with red flames.
Just as Sentinel Prime was obviously Astrotrain, Headmaster Megatron is obviously Blitzwing, but with a Megatron head. You can see his tank turret on his back, and jet fins on his ankles. He comes with two guns which merge to form his big cannon that can plug into his arm. Megatron's head looks very G1 in head mode. In "Nebulon" mode it has a red torso, and grey limbs.
Chromedome's getting repainted as Getaway. Head looks G1.
Triggerhappy is a headmaster who looks very G1.
Hot Rod is a headmaster who looks G1 in vehicle mode. Robot mode looks vaguely IDW to me. Small waste. Long thinghs. Big hexagonal kneepads with vents in them.
Alpha Trion's a triple changer. Beast Mode is a wolf with a unicorn horn (I have no idea why). Jet mode looks very Vector Prime.
Weirdwolf looks good. Very G1.
Powermaster Prime is getting a Diaclone repaint, so it's a blue COE truck. They seem to be calling it Magnus Prime or something along those lines (I can't remember for sure). Odd, since it's not white.
Tidal Wave seems to be coming back (investor art, photoshopped, rough). Looks like it'll share a mold with Broadside. Vehicle mode seems to be USS Flagg homage. Part of "strength series". Tidal Wave's head is called Powerhouse. Grey body. Green limbs.
Decepticon Clones. Looked to me like they have a Predaking. And the D-clones were Predaking parts. Same with Horri-Bull.
Sharkticon looks very round and G1.
Technobots look like you'd expect. But Afterburner is weird. Instead of making him G1, or just an orange Takara Groove, he's got this really long warped/bent windshield. It looks awkward to me. But that was my only complaint from everything I saw.
SDCC Fort Max comes with red sword. Has blue hands, instead of white.
That's all I can remember right now. Anyways, very excited. Would love to have any of these done up, just for the sake of chatting with friends about it on FB, etc.
Three Transformers relaed Trademark renewals have popped up and are listed below:
For: Pre-recorded CDs and DVDs featuring music
Mark: OMEGA SUPREME
For: Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms
Mark: VECTOR PRIME
For: Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms
One of the trademarks is for a CD and there is not much info to speculate from that. The other two though are for transforming toys. Omega Supreme is extremely telling since we know it is an upcoming Titan Class figure either in 2018 or 2019 (Scorponok is already renewed for the Robots in Disguise figure).
As for Vector Prime, it is hard to tell when this toy is expected to come out and which line he is for. From previous trademark applications, it could be up to one or two years before a toy is revealed/released (both Rook and Overload were trademarked in April 2014). What is interesting though is that Vector Prime is one of the thirteen Primes and the current toys are all part of a Prime Wars trilogy. You are free to speculate beyond that (and encouraged to) on the boards!
While Hasbro will be releasing the Titans Return line, it looks like Takara Tomy will be incorporating some of those figures under their continuing Legends banner instead. According to Twitter user gadepon, at least, both Skullcruncher and Hardhead will show up in the line, with some remolding for the headsculpts too! Check out below some fairly small images of the two Headmasters, scanned from a hobby magazine.
We bring you today the Transformers Rescue Bots official images gallery. There are a couple of firsts in these upcoming Rescue Bots toys. Morbot is the first transforming villain Rescue Bots toy while Quickshadow is the first female Rescue Bot. Also if you take a look at Sideswipe he looks like RID Sideswipe in robot mode. You can check out the gallery here or click on the images below.

Some additional tail-end news from he New York Toy Fair 2016 comes in the form of a video of the promo reel that Hasbro were showing in their area during the event, as site owner Seibertron took the time to capture it during a conversation with Ben Montano of the Transformers Brand. Featuring the Prime Wars trilogy - with Combiner Wars as part 1, Titans Return as part 2 and still no confirmation on part 3 - with some ads we have seen before, and some new artwork promos that were probably shown during the Hasbro webcast in the room itself. Check it out embedded below!
Thanks to the Loopaza Mega Store on Facebook, we get some new pictures of the Ultimetal UM-03 Ultra Magnus at the annual C3 Hong Kong Anime and Manga Fair! These pictures shows us a grey prototype of Ultra Magnus in his Armored up form that better represents his G1 look from the Cartoons. Previously only rumored to include an armored up look from his packaging these, images confirms it! Check out the images below and remember keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates!
Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host, ScottyP along with Counterpunch, Megatronus, Rotorstorm, and Tigertrack! Sit down, tune in, and enjoy as we discuss all the latest news, toys, comics and more.
Episode #137 "The St. Valentine's Day Toy Fair" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes, and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.
Even though it's Valentine's Day weekend, we are excited that Toy Fair is finally here! (P.S. thank you to all our significant others for taking a little time away to talk about Transformers for 2 hours )
Our very own Seibertron is in the thick of the excitement in New York City and will be updating us throughout the night with new photos and videos. Even though over the last few months we have seen many images leaked for the upcoming Titans Return line, we are still keeping our fingers crossed for some new and exciting figures.
So many pictures, so little time! As we take a moment to paruse the amazing photos coming in to the Seibertron Galleries, the Twincast discusses some figures that were teased prior to Toy Fair but left us feeling unsatisfied, until now. Powermaster Prime, Wheelie, Blurr and Scourge made their "in the plastic" appearance and you'll have to tune in to hear what we think of these updated characters.
It wouldn't be Toy Fair without the reveal of a new Platinum Edition set, right? Well this time, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie, this year's (K*Mart exclusive ) is Cyclonus, Scourge, and a Sweep! Do we need another Cyclonus? Oh wow, is that Devcon from Botcon? Listen in as we get this early impression a bit wrong.
Of course, we can forget about this lovely ray of sunshine, Sentinel "Not Ginrai" Prime:
(Ouch, my eyes!)
We decide to step away from the Titans Return line and focus on another line with some pretty neat reveals, Robots in Disguise. With 2016 being the anniversary of Beast Wars, and no official announcement from Hasbro that they are planning new figures - does the newly revealed Scorponok toy show that they might just be teasing us?
Another interesting Platinum set has also been revealed, a Robots in Disguise Grimlock and Bumblebee set. We're excited to have another opportunity at Takara's Battle Grimlock retooling, and of course, another Bumblebee "Supreme Mode" deco for our swarms.
Then the conversation just gets depressing, in terms of sports anyway. Panthers, you had one job.
After that short off-topic interlude, we try and figure out what is up with Windblade all of a sudden?
This girl had some work done.
Thanks to Toy Fair, we've finally been shown a more accurate version of the fan built bot Victorion. Does this new image change our minds on her? Guess you'll have to tune in to find out.
This one did too, and she looks a bit better.
In celebrate of the 20th Anniversary of Beast Wars, we continue on with our special segment on rewatching the television show. In this episode, we'll discuss our thoughts on episode 2, the simply titled "Beast Wars: Part 2".
Prepare to see this image in our posts a lot this year!
We finish up tonight's episode, in celebration (man another celebration? Geez) of Valentine's Day, with a question that we are sure everyone has had to deal with.
I can feel my heart beat fast-errrrrrrrr
Well, that wraps things up for another episode! We really hope you enjoyed listening.
Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!
Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!
Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.
Weibo user Z-Multiplier, who has all the Titans Return images but is leaking them out slowly, has chosen now to finally leak a full image of the 3-D render of Titans Return Brainstorm.
We have attached this image below along with other images recapping both the previous image of the altmode (also courtesy of Z Multiplier) and the official Hasbro image of Titans Return Blurr for you to see which parts are new and reworked between the two.
The final wrap-up post from the New York Toy Fair 2016 comes from the Loyal Subjects booth in the Javits Center, featuring not only the already well-known vinyl figures for the Transforemrs, but also a handful of other franchises, such as My Little Pony, G.I. Joe, Masters of the Universe, Power Rangers, and TMNT. The full gallery can be found here, or by clicking on any of the images below!
