Huh, something escaped the cameras of Seibertron.com during our 2011 Toy Fair coverage? That's right, ASMzine was able to get their hands on a couple of toys present at Hasbro's showcase last week. We've got looks at the biographies of Powerglide, Private Dedcliff with Sandstorm, and Autobot Roller, who will be included into the Autobot Ark playset. There's also a back packaging look at Ultimate Optimus Prime. Check it out below!

Human pilots have travelled thousands of miles just to study the moves POWERGLIDE exceutes in midair. His acrobatic aerial accomplishments impress all who see them - friend and enemy alike. His skill is the only thing that has kept him alive, since his light armor makes him a soft target for his DECEPTICON foes.

AUTOBOT ROLLER is the pilot of the mighty starship that at one time was the flagship of the AUTOBOT fleet. Together they protect the vast expanse of outer space from the DECEPTICON threat.

SANDSTORM was built to survive for extended periods in the harshest climates. Anything Earth can throw at him, he can endure and come out smiling. He requires the same fortitude from his human partner, Private Dedcliff, a special forces wilderness survival expert with years of experience. Together, they hunt DECEPTICONS in the most remote places on the planet.

Optimus Prime Gets A Ticket?

Remember those Optimus Prime photos we brought you from Toy Fair? According to Movieweb Optimus Prime was cited for blocking traffic! Barricade's revenge?

To read the original story click here! There are also a couple of quotes from an interview with DOTM's Rosie Huntington-Whitley, but nothing all that revealing about the movie.

Image

Image

In other Transformers: Dark of the Moon news, Optimus Prime himself visited the American International Toy Fair in New York and received a $115 parking ticket.

The screen-used tractor-trailer version of Optimus Prime was parked on 41st Street near 8th Avenue in front of Times Square after being dropped off on a flatbed in two pieces from Los Angeles. New York City drivers had a hard time making it around the 9 ft vehicle, which was charged with blocking traffic.

Apparently, the truck is only drivable on a movie set, and not street legal. Although Hasbro, who had the truck and trailer shipped in for the Toy Fair, had all of the appropriate street permits, Optimus Prime still received a ticket. There is no word if Hasbro will pay the ticket at this time.

The ever so elegant site moderator and super hero, Counterpunch took the opportunity to speak with the gracious folks at Hasbro during Toy Fair. He was able to get answers to several questions. While these things are likely going to change over time or as circumstances change, it's still good information to take in right now.

General info from Hasbro Reps
-MP Rodimus is not immediately forthcoming-
So, there is real interest in bringing it over. However, don't expect to see anything soon. Essentially, this will depend on a retailer coming through with an exclusive. From the tone of the conversation, it seemed as if that was not going well. Remember though that it took around a year to get Grimlock from Japan to the Western markets. However, we also got info on that at Botcon and SDCC. So, I would look to that as your answer on if we'll see Rodimus in this year or next.

-Powercore Combiners appear to be done...ish-
There was no trace of the line at Toy Fair. The rep seemed surprised that Undertow wasn't at market yet and that the Dinobots were hard to find.

Info from Greg Lombardo, Senior Director of Global Marketing for the Transformers brand at Hasbro
-Those Wal Mart SKUs for Arcee and Starscream-
Those were meant to be the Prime toys. They are NOT Classics style figures. Originally, the Prime toys were going to be fit into the Generations line. Now they are getting their own 4th quarter 2011 line. What we have seen so far is a pre-cursor wave, kind of to avoid the whole Animated show/toy debacle. We will get a new Prime and Megatron in larger sizes. Starscream will not necessarily get a larger toy.

-Mechtech-
The figures are smaller due to the Mechtech toys. It's not a cost of oil/production issue.

-Generations/RtS/United Decos-
How Takara gets the decos they do, is by individual pricing of their figures. For Hasbro, a wave has a cost to it that is split up amongst the figures in the wave. They have to ration out who gets what and how many paint apps. Takara is able to price a figure individually and as such, the budgets are different per figure. They aren't bound internally by wave. So, instead of Jazz costing $12 or 1500Y at retail, they can give him the appropriate deco and charge $13.42 or 1572Y...whatever it takes to cover the cost. It's a matter of flexibility.

-DotM-
Many or most of the toy decisions were made such that the toys would not be a rehashing of what they've already done. There was an effort to ensure that figures were fundamentally different.

Counterpunch can clarify any of these points, but he can't tell you anything about stuff he didn't ask about.

Other things that he took away from the show:
-DotM voyagers are SMALL.
-Hasbro really seems to be taking the product back to kids, perhaps leveling it down by 2 years in the age bracket.
-The Star Wars team really knows their shit.
-The GI Joe collectors are getting really, really, really nice 3 3/4 inch figures. Really.
-Mechtech looks dumb, but it is probably fun for kids.
-Ultimate Optimus Prime is kind of cool looking. Much better than the pics.
-Legends figures have really come into their own. (They're just not coming into Counterpunch's house!)

In the heat of Toy Fair 2011 and the subsequent unveiling of Leader Class Sentinel Prime and Ironhide, our insiders overseas have given us a heads up on what's on Takara's pallet for their Dark Of The Moon toy line. It's evident that when a figure is released by Hasbro, you can wait on Takara for a better paint job. While Takara's Autobot Alliance did have variations in their figures, they weren't blatantly better. This won't be the case for Sentinel Prime and Ironhide, as they'll be getting the special treatment as...

Movie Masterpiece MPM-03 Sentinel Prime
Movie Masterpiece MPM-04 Ironhide


You may recall that Leader Class Starscream was the first Movie Masterpiece, painted glamarously and un-tattooed. Battle Ops Bumblebee was the second Movie Masterpiece, painted in shiny fashion. No word on whether or not the new Leader Class Bumblebee will be released in Takara's Movie Masterpiece toy line.
