While Ryan is preparing the galleries for the by now actually quite anticipated Transformers: Age of Extinction Voyager figures Evasion Mode Optimus Prime and Grimlock, here at Seibertron.com we've decided to give you a bit of an appetizer - check out below the scans of the instruction sheets for the two figures, showing the 18 steps to transform them, and ..very little else. As always, leave your thoughts in the Energon Pub, and make sure to come back later this week for the full galleries!
Continuing the slew of video reviews from the first wave of Transformers: Age of Extinction toys, Seibertron.com user Fires_of_Inferno has alerted us to another one on YouTube. Check out below a new deluxe Autobot character, the seemingly trigger-happy Crosshairs, and his green 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7 alt mode, courtesy of reviewer allanmonster111.
In addition to last week's reveal about the biggest Transformers Collector's Club exclusive figure for the upcoming Pasadena BotCon, the official Twitter account for the event has revealed the jet mode for Scorponok and Olin Zarak - as was expected, given that the figure is a redeco of Energon Scorponok. The image is apparently an in-hand shot with tweaked colours, and it also reveals that the Olin figure cannot fit in the closed cockpit. They also posted a second image, showing Olin outside of the vehicle itself. Check them both out below!
Seibertron.com staff admin El Duque has spotted a very interesting article on his hounding travels, from the games section of VentureBeat, a tech and business news blog. The site had a chat with Jagex chief executive officer Mark Gerhard, and they talked about various topics, some of which have been previously reported, such as the Decepticon-Autobot disparity and the gameplay style - make sure you head to the official Seibertron.com thread for the game for more!
In other news, however, Gerhard has an intriguing point about their collaboration with Hasbro. Read on below!
Jagex has created all the original Transformers featured in the game — such as Duststorm, Firebreaker, and Showdown — from scratch, working closely with brand owner Hasbro.
“The IP [intellectual property] has been going for the last 30 years,” said art director Gerard Miley, pointing out that Jagex was free to draw on the entire range of Transformer generations for inspiration. “Universe is a key word,” he added, while also noting the key influence of the Transformers Prime animated television series. “The DNA of Prime is in our game,” he said.
Hasbro has no Transformers manual to use when creating a new bot, “so it’s really just studying the visual language of it,” said Miley. “Using clever shapes and a little bit of trickery to get the transformations working.”
Working so closely with Hasbro has yielded some great cross-promotion opportunities for Transformers Universe.
“It’s been a tremendous relationship,” said Gerhard. “They’ve been really blown away by how we’ve paid homage to the brand.”
With that in mind, Gerhard told me that Hasbro “has taken a number of bots we’ve created and turned them into a toy line.”
The toys won’t interact with the game, as we’ve seen with titles like Skylanders and Disney Infinity, but their presence on toy store shelves will be a great boost to the Transformers Universe brand as well as vindicating the quality of Jagex’s original Transformer designs.
While Hasbro itself is “superkeen” to promote the game on this toy line, Gerhard is wary that most of the people who buy the toys are quite young. He wants the game itself to be well received within the industry and with older gamers before leveraging the “extra footfall” that the toy line would create. “I think it’s a fantastic enhancer,” he said.
While this is the first official confirmation we have about a Universe game-based toyline, it does not come as that much of a surprise - after all, we've already seen some odd bolts cropping up in the Transformers: Prime (RID) line. Remember them?
As other members of staff have also pointed out, the game has been in development limbo for ages, and we've heard and seen from one of its concept artists previously too, with clear Prime-esque concept designs too. You can read the whole interview here - and make sure to leave your thoughts in the Energon Pub!
Courtesy of Ace's Weblog we have some in-hand images of the Transformers Generations Legends Class figures Skrapnel with Reflector and Tailgate with Groundbuster. The images include some nice comparison shots with their G1 counterparts. Click here to visit Ace's Weblog for additional images and written reviews of these highly anticipated figures.
Fellow Seibertron.com members Fires_of_Inferno and mooncake623 have kept their eyes peeled on Vangelus' YouTube channel, as two more reviews have been uploaded: Transformers Age of Extinction Dinobots Scorn and Slug. Scorn is a red Spinosaurus in dino mode, while Slug is a big purple Triceratops, and both feature fairly knightly looks in robot mode! Check out the embedded reviews below.
We have seen a lot of this information before, especially directly from the Seibertron.com reporting from Toy Fair 2014 in New York - but now fans in Brazil, thanks to fellow fansite Transformers Dioramas also get their share of the dino/robot cake! Check out below some of the images from the ABRIN/2014 event, featuring most of wave 1 (Deluxe, voyager and Leader class) of the Transformers: Age of Extinction figures and some pretty neat display art - and head here and here for more.
