Here's a little gem that almost slipped through the cracks! The same set of catalog images from the N├╝rnberger Toy Fair that gave up our first look at Kre-O Devastator also has a better image of the Transformers Prime Cyberverse Drill Tank with Knockout playset. We got our first look at this set from the Argos catalog scans a couple of weeks ago. This image is clearer and gives us a much better look at Cyberverse Knockout in both modes, who comes with translucent staff and buzzsaw accessories.

The Transformers Galaxy Hong Kong Fans Group have posted a couple of new images that reveal previously unknown Bot Shot characters. We actually saw some of the wave 2 figures a few days ago when we received the leaked images for the UK Toy Fair, but this confirms their identities. The blue sports car is Mirage along with movie Brawl and Autobot Ratchet. The unidentified wave adds Jetfire, Thundercracker, Movie Topspin, and Lockdown. Images mirrored below.

Courtesy of @Seibertroncom twitter follower -neurie- we have new images of some upcoming Transformers toys. We see four new and Bot Shots: G1 Ratchet, Movie Brawl, and two unknown sports cars. Next we have what is likely the Leader sized "Weaponizer" Optimus Prime that was shown at the UK Toy Fair, as it seems to match the description that was given:

Prime Weaponizers - Leader Class figures. Choose from Bumblebee or Optimus Prime who was on display, these new larger scale figures feature 4 modes of play with concealed weapons, Prime himself had a set of gattling guns which can flip out from under his hood in truck mode or mount the shoulders in robot mode. They have been simplified over previous leaders so the core audience of children can transform them more easily.


Lastly we have slightly better version of the Optimus Maximus image that was revealed last night.

Images mirrored below.

Remember the Supreme Class Optimus Maximus news that came out of the UK Toy Fair a few days ago? Courtesy of twitter an image of the figure has been revealed. The figure appears to be based Optimus Prime (not a shocker it's called Optimus Maximus after all) and according to the previous news transforms into a base with electronic features for use with Cyberverse figures.

Optimus Maximus - bases make a return to the line with Maximus, a large scale Cyberverse Playset which doubles a fully transforming figure and base for your Cyberverse figures. Featuring light and sound features, firing rockets and launching vehicle this guy was fairly imposing standing somewhere in between Ultimate Op and a regular Leader Class figure. It looked quite bare without any Cyberverse figures locked in but you could see the gun turrets just waiting to be armed by you min faves.

Andy from Full Metal Hero has just returned from UK's Toy Fair 2012 with some salivating information! Sadly there were no pictures allowed due to Non-Disclosure Agreements, but he certainly wasn't at a lack of words.

Full Metal Hero wrote:1) Generations - returns with the Fall of Cybertron line, on display was a hard copy of Jazz who is a 4 wheeled Cybertronian sports car, the line is officially called Generations and the product packaging still depicts a nice drawn example of the character inside. 8 figures are confirmed for the line one of which might well be Grimlock.

2) Prime Weaponizers - Leader Class figures. Choose from Bumblebee or Optimus Prime who was on display, these new larger scale figures feature 4 modes of play with concealed weapons, Prime himself had a set of gattling guns which can flip out from under his hood in truck mode or mount the shoulders in robot mode. They have been simplified over previous leaders so the core audience of children can transform them more easily.

3) Optimus Maximus - bases make a return to the line with Maximus, a large scale Cyberverse Playset which doubles a fully transforming figure and base for your Cyberverse figures. Featuring light and sound features, firing rockets and launching vehicle this guy was fairly imposing standing somewhere in between Ultimate Op and a regular Leader Class figure. It looked quite bare without any Cyberverse figures locked in but you could see the gun turrets just waiting to be armed by you min faves.

Thats about it for new stuff, what we already know and what is the core line for this year is below and its all about the Prime

1) Cyberverse Legion

2) Cyberverse Commander

3) Cyberverse Vehicles

4) Optimus Maximus

5) RID Revealers

6) RID Powerizers

7) RID Weaponizers

Other items were

1) Battle Masks

2) Bot Shots which is actually a really cool battle game which mixes Bakugan with rock, paper scissors, aside from the single pack figures there are Launchers, Ultimate Packs and 3 packs the idea being 2 figures are thrown together in vehicle mode than collide revealing the winning symbol.

Transformers Prime First Edition will not be hitting UK shelves in anyway shape or form, Cliffjumper and Bumblebee were on display but display is as far as they appear to be going.

Kre-O

New Kre-O sets were on display including the following

1) Decepticon Ambush - 4 Kreon pack with small accessories and a base to battle on

2) Cycle Chase - Prowl and 2 of his troops face off against a Decepticon, again comes with small accessory set and base

3) Kre-O Decepticon Helicopter - the robot with no name looks a lot like Starscream in robot mode and is yellow and red, comes with 3 Kreons and quad bike

4) Kre-O Stealth Bumblebee - new mold Bumblebee comes in black with 3 Kreons and what looks like the checkpoint from DOTM

5) Transformers Prime Kre-O Race Car Showdown - Knock Out and Wheeljack face off in this 2 pack each with the standard Kreons mini figure.

6) Kre-O Optimus Vs Megatron - G1 style set featuring an all new Optimus Prime vs G1 style Megatron who changes into a tank and not a walther comes with mini building and 3 kreons.

7) Kre-O Devastator - 9 in 1 playset - a mix of G1 style robots and movie tradition means you get 4 standard robots in movie Devy colours building seperate vehicles or the might Devastator - for those worried no he doesn't look anything like the hulking movie character. Comes with a slew of Kreons and construction environment.


It is interesting that there was nothing mentioned about the rumoured Movie Trilogy line; however there may be more revealed soon. For Seibertron.com will be covering the American International Toy Fair 2012 on February 12-15th. Stay tuned for more information.

Transformers Prime Tuesday Q&A: Post-Production Supervisor Austin Block

The Transformers facebook page has posted this week's Tuesday Transformers Prime cast and crew Q&A session, which features Post-Production Supervisor Austin Block. The session is mirrored below for those without facebook access.


Amber Whetstine asked: Have you always been a Transformers fan? Who's you favorite Transformer and episode in the show so far?

AUSTIN BLOCK: I definitely watched the original series in the '80s, but working on Prime has given me a newfound appreciation for the brand and its mythology. I'd say my favorite transformer is a toss-up between Starscream and Knock Out. My favorite episodes that have aired would be 7 and 26-- but my favorite episode is actually one that hasn't aired yet! ; )


Abby Dillon asks: Thanks for all your work on Prime! As supervisor, what does your work day for the show usually look like? Is there a particular moment during the post-production of an episode that you enjoy the most?

AUSTIN BLOCK: My work days are always different but include some combo of making sure the edit/review sessions start on time, making sure our outside 'crew' (sound design, composer, color correction editor) has what they need, verifying we have all of the approved footage for a given show, resolving scheduling conflicts, coordinating with our QC facility to make sure our shows pass, and making sure we have the paperwork and media deliverables we'll need for network delivery. My favorite moment is attending the final audio mixes. It is very cool to see all the different elements finally come together.


Clark Gray asks: I am wondering if you are a fan of Transformers new and old and is it hard to separate the fan from the job when coming into contact with new content and actors?

AUSTIN BLOCK: As a child of the '80s, I definitely watched Transformers and I really liked playing with cars so Transformers and Micro Machines were among my favorite toys. As an adult and working on the show, I've become a fan again. I'm most intrigued by the backstory moments. I always look forward to getting more information from the new episodes.


Jocelyn Simmons asks: How do you manage, trying to juggle the calendar for such a huge series? Especially with all of the details that go into it! Is it hard, trying to coordinate so many things? Do you have help?

AUSTIN BLOCK: I think I've gotten pretty good at juggling. When you have to move one session, it often impacts the next stage. So other things might have to be slid around to make it all work. There are sessions that aren't as easy to move around, like an edit session with a busy Executive Producer, or a Color Correction session that we need to book well in advance. Most other sessions I am able to move around without too much trouble. I do have help: Bess Thompson assists me in Post and is in charge of calling and tracking animation retakes on every episode.


Danial Chong Quek Choon asks: Hi there, I wanna ask as a post-production supervisor for the best animation series, can you describe how do you make sure is everything of the preparation for each episode is going accordingly?

AUSTIN BLOCK: On my calendar, I plug in everything- supervised sessions; unsupervised sessions, footage deliveries, crew schedules, distribution dates, and delivery deadlines. My Blackberry is my best friend and I sort my inbox so I have important emails or emails that I need to follow up on at the ready. For those items that come up that do not involve scheduling I have a planner. That way if I have something due on a certain date I can just flip to that page and write myself a note.


--Austin Block is the Post-Production Supervisor on "Transformers Prime." She is in charge of scheduling and overseeing the post-production calendar for each episode, including all in-house sessions (such as edit sessions and picture reviews) and out-of-house sessions (such as color correction and audio mixing).

In addition to working on "Transformers Prime," Block worked on "G.I. Joe Renegades," and is now currently working on another Hub series, "Rescue Bots." Before coming to Hasbro, Block worked at Nickelodeon for seven years, where she worked as a Post Coordinator on Fairly OddParents, Tuff Puppy, Spongebob, Avatar, and Making Fiends.
