With the color scheme of the Decepticon ship the "Nemesis" in the background, we are given a silohuette picture of what strikingly resembles the G1 Gestalt figure Predaking!

The good folks at Gameinformer give us an interesting look at the development of Activision's War For Cybertron Optimus Prime. Check out the article below..

War For Cybertron - Optimus Primed.

The developers behind Transformers: War For Cybertron have an interesting task when it comes to their game's creation. Fans of the cartoon have a very specific view of how the robots in disguise look, but various iterations throughout the years have tweaked their image substantially. Many were irked by the Micheal Bay-ified insect-like versions of the Autobots and Decepticons in the recent live action films, as they strayed too far from the G1 originals. High Moon Studios is approaching this task by putting a modern polish on a look that still brings back memories of the cartoon that launched the series into pop culture history.

Take a look below at Senior Concept Artist Billy King as he details the most iconic of the Transformers - Optimus Prime.

Seibertron member bvzxa has purchased the Fansproject "Snowman" Superion Appendage and was kind enough to share his thoughts and images on this set.


Yes...it's here. And I must say, it's one tricky but sweet piece of work. Still don't see any extra belles and whistles, but the gun color was changed at the last minute....it's BLACK with SILVER paint.
I'll be using my Superlink Superion set because I like that one more than the ROTF Superion set. Which will receive the first set of the appendage kit next year. I'm done buying things until the new year.
And now pictures!!!
Appendages....what appendages?
"Snowman" Superion Appendage Add-On Kit has arrived w/lots of Pics!!

The packaging, TFSource special tag, comic book preview, and instructions (color):

Using the add-ons are not easy, and require some care. However, the parts are durable, and very well crafted. They almost feel like a Valkyrie/Veritech fastpack for all five vehicle/robot modes. After looking at the pictures of the first add-on kit, the paint job is much nicer. Almost looks like a production model, while the first appendage set looks like a prototype.

Silverbolt/Afterburner(leader):
These are the feet and hands. They hands have some articulation. The hands are stored in the feet and are added to Silverbolt. The gun fits in the back center of the jet mode. Amazing

Jet Mode:

Robot mode:
He looks like he has extra thrusters, and now a weapon for the leader!
"Snowman" Superion Appendage Add-On Kit has arrived w/lots of Pics!!

Skydive and Slingshot:
Please note, the radar dish breaks into four parts to add stability to the feet portion. The parts only make up for one radar dish. There are two guns however for both robots, which is fine by me. I'm also not happy about how the parts look hanging off one of them. I see FansProject may have been at a loss on what to do with the parts, except to make one robot look different than the other.

Air Raider and Firebolt:
I love the simple design off the add-on for these two. They remind me of the leg armors on the valkyries from Macross. They give them a nice look. The surprise was only one leg is used to create the overall arm. Slick!

Now putting it all together:
Arms

Legs. Interesting parts overall. You first place the legs into the feet (Still not right), then you split the radar dish into four halves. The silver pipes from the feet go into the gold parts from the broken up radar dish, giving the feet and legs a hydraulic look. The guns also give it a hydraulics' look when placed into the holes near the cockpits of Slingshot and Skydive.
"Snowman" Superion Appendage Add-On Kit has arrived w/lots of Pics!!

Now the final part:
I like this paint scheme better on this version of Superion. Works better on the Superlink/Energon version than the gray set.
"Snowman" Superion Appendage Add-On Kit has arrived w/lots of Pics!!
"Snowman" Superion Appendage Add-On Kit has arrived w/lots of Pics!!

Overall, I love this set. I love the way it looks, and feels. The fact that the gun color was changed to black with the detailing is a nice touch. If I wasn't sold, I am now. It is a must have if you plan on getting the future Bruticus set. 2010 is going to be a great year, and FansProject knows it!!!

Merry Christmas Seibertronians. We are a bunch of nuts!!!

Hasbro has answered the questions that the staff of Seibertron decided we should submit based on ALL the fantastic entries from our community. If you have questions that you would like to ask Hasbro, please post your questions in this thread.

Mold Ownership

Seibertron.com: It is no secret that Paramount has quite a bit of pull and ownership when it comes to Transformers Movie figures. Can Hasbro please elaborate on who owns the molds. For example, would it be feasible to see the upcoming Voyager Bludgeon, ROTF Brawn, Mindwipe etc figures re-released (or re-deco'd) under a non-movie related line such as Universe? Or is that not possible because Hasbro doesn't actually own the molds?

Hasbro: While we certainly appreciate your concern over who owns what, what we can say is this: Hasbro owns all of our molds and can determine what we want to do with those molds.


Collector Market

Seibertron.com: Setting aside the 2 limited G1 Reissues released recently this year, how does Hasbro plan to reach out to the adult collector market? With Alternators not planned for the near future, the homage based Classics "on hold", and no further Special Edition figures announced (didn't Overkill, Dragstrip, Megatron, and Optimus Prime sell well?), there appears to be more incentive for adult collectors to purchase reissues and other more targeted merchandise from outside import vendors and '3rd party' companies. Why has Hasbrotoyshop.com not established a collector service to provide Encore, Alternity, and Masterpiece figures in the same manner that MattyCollector is attending to their adult fan-base? Where are the previously seen 'Red Classics Mirage', and upgraded Classics Cliffjumper going to appear (theorized to be next in line as Special Edition toys)? Is there anything in the plans that caters more to the Transformer collector market, rather than just the whole of the Transformers brand market?

Hasbro: We think one of the reasons it may feel like there's not as much collector-specific products is that we are right in the middle of the "movie madness" and we haven't made any formal announcements for the Fall 2010 line and exclusives. We continue to look for opportunities to bring out the G1 re-issue characters that haven't been released as re-issues before or do them in a new, different way. We are trying to avoid releasing the same versions that were released in 2003/2004. We will continue to find these opportunities (like we did with Soundwave at Comic Con in 2009... hint hint). We will continue to bring Masterpiece toys as retailer exclusives where appropriate - there will be one in 2010. And as discussed at BotCon, we will be continuing the "Classics/Universe" toys in the back half of 2010 with a new name (it won't be called Universe 3.0, but that's the idea). In addition we also try to include fan favorites in the movie line like Bludgeon and Brawn as well as assortments like the Human Alliance assortment.


Planning Ahead

Seibertron.com: How much of a line is decided before the line is actually in distribution? For example, is it known how many waves it will consist of? What the average figure size breakdown will be (legends/scouts/etc) and which figures will be in it? Or is there a set amount of each size class of mold that you use as a guide when you go to produce/design each new line?

Hasbro: While this question gets into business related topics that we cannot discuss in this forum, we did want to give you some insight. Generally speaking, we plan out the entire line and all of the assortments well in advance, but it is also very fluid process. We view our yearly plans as "living organisms" that change and adapt over time, thus nothing is ever truly set in stone.

So there are the answers that we received. Thank you again for participating! Stay tuned for information about upcoming Q&A sessions with Hasbro, which will be going on a temporary hiatus due to the holidays.
