For your consideration, we bring you new galleries of the first wave in 2013 of Transformers Generations Fall of Cybertron deluxe figures. This wave consists of 2 new molds and 3 remolds. The brand new molds are Starscream and Kickback, while the remolds are Sideswipe, Ultra Magnus and Air Raid who are remolded from Jazz, Optimus Prime and Shockwave respectively. So what are you waiting for? Click away on the pics to see the full galleries.
The Transformers facebook page gives us an official look at the upcoming Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commander Wave 4, which features Huffer and a new Optimus Prime deco. Huffer is a straight redeco of the previously released Trailcutter. In addition to his new deco, Optimus Prime also comes with a new shield accessory. Check out the images mirrored below.
Seibertron member dirk2243 found wave 2 of the Kre-O Microchangers at his local Target. He bought all twelve and gave us the handy dandy identification guide to figure out who's who. Remember, it's the last 2 numbers you use to identify the Kreons as seen in the last 2 pictures.
Courtesy of eBay seller lena81822 we get a look at the unreleased Transformers: Dark of the Moon Deluxe Soundblaster. The figure was intended to be part of the MechTech Deluxe Wave 7 "Movie Trilogy", which would have also included a Bumblebee redeco, a Rachet redeco, and Wheeljack redeco with new head mold. The only figure to ever see the light of day from the "Movie Trilogy" line being the Deluxe Optimus Prime with Trailer. The seller seems to have supply of these, so hopefully additional images of the figure posed in robot mode will surface soon.
e-Hobby has updated the product page for their upcoming Magnificus exclusive with a teaser from the comic he will come packed with. As you can see in the image mirrored below the comic features Ga'mede and what appears to be the never produced Gorilla Double Pretender.
There have been several Springers come out in recent years but none of them were Triple Changers, not anymore this latest version features all three unique modes: car, helicopter, and of robot. This incarnation of Springer is heavily influenced by his appearance in IDW's Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers as drawn by Nick Roche.
Our last Blitzwing figure was a Triple Changer, but came out in the highly stylized Transformers Animated line. This version will feel much more at home on a collector's neo-G1 shelf, but retains the Transformers Animated characters three face gimmick.
Enjoy the full galleries by clicking any of the images or links found below.
The official Transformers Facebook page has finally revealed two more Legends figures from the upcoming Generations line: Megatron and Starscream! They each come with their own Targetmasters, Chopshop and Waspinator respectively.

There is an update from MMC on Hexatron - that it's officially delayed until late May.

Those of you lucky enough to already have Transformers Generations Voyager Class Blitzwing in-hand know he comes complete with an annoying little shoulder issue. The shoulders don't quite "lock in" properly resulting in floppy arms, but have no fear! Clever Transformers fans have already isolated the problem and came up with fixes.
First up, our own Seibertron.com member wewyllenium. His fix involves adding material behind shoulder flap, which provides enough resistance to fully engage the shoulder peg. Check out his YouTube upload below:
The second fix comes to us from YouTube user GIDAVE75. His fix is a bit more labor intensive, but addresses the root cause of the problem. This fix involves opening the figure up and sanding down some of the figure's inner parts. Sanding down the extra plastic allows the should peg to fully engage. Check out his YouTube upload below:
So there you have it, two fixes to make a great figure even better!
Seibertron, the man himself sighted Deluxes and Cyberverse at his local Five Below store and had this to share:
Discount Chain Five Below has a bunch of the lower priced Transformers currently. Good time to pick up Cyberverse figures if people want them for $3 a piece.
Cyberverse and bot shots $3
Rest are $5
I, too, can personally verify that this Transformers push at Five Below is nationwide. As I've seen two of them carry both DOTM and Cyberverse. Some stores even carry left over RPMs in both single and 2-Packs.
