Is it just me, or does that Optimus armor thing look more like two Optimuses about to kiss each other rather than his chest?

Also, I'm liking how Grimlock's dino mode has a mix of silver and gold/yellow. More interesting than just straight up silver.

Yeah, maybe it'll be possible to unsee that once we've all gotten used to Op's TF4 design, but for now it's kind of hard to imagine shooting at that without projecting some sort of political agenda onto it.

Though my first thought was, am I the only one happy to simply see it called "Laser" tag again, rather than "Virtual Paintball"? Maybe I'm just remembering one particular brand name that irked me a few years back; is Laser Tag a specific brand, and that's why this box says "Mega Laser Set"?

Now that we have seen some Grimlock pics and based on his color scheme and decor, I have a pretty out there speculation. Is it possible that Bumblebee somehow becomes Grimlock?

Bee's popularity has dropped pretty low and no one wants to go through yet another round of all Bee merchandise. Plus let's face it, Grimlock is the big money character in part 4. So rather than have two (for lack of a better word) favorites battle for consumer cash, just mash em together and be done with it.

Another clue is the recent decision to make Rescue Bot Op into a dino. Perhaps the precedent was already set.


It's pretty absurd, admittedly - but movie-verse does what movie-verse wants.

Wouldn't it be better business to exploit the profits of two favorites instead of just one?

And now the color scheme of Grimlock, compared to this car's color scheme? That, and how they said Bumblebee was that muscle car? Isn't it easy (but not safe) to assume Grimlock = Bumblebee?

"Autobots, transvest and roll out!"
Seriously, after the slagstorm over Windblade, wouldn't it be hilarious if part of the official solution to inherent robot gender is TFs rediscovering an ability to change theirs as easily as transforming from mode to mode? Maybe only characters who've experienced international sex-changes (Nightbeat, Nitro Convoy), or, erm, "pink-repaints" (Highbeam, Rewind, Wheelie).

But back on topic, if grey and gold are close enough to yellow and black, couldn't it just be that Bee and Grimlock have usually had roughly the same color combination since before Transformers was even a brand? Even if this doesn't come to pass, this thread may have already given Roger Corman the inspiration for his greatest cash-in: CAR-nosaur! Well, if the studio behind Transmorphers doesn't make it first...

Going to have to hold final judgement for this years line-up until the other TF fairs are done and we get a better look at the over-all line but based on what we've seen so far, the suckage-to-win ratio is not looking good. Of course, I've been suspecting that this would be the case since about 2/3 of the way through this last year. It's not that I'm bitching about the lack of items aimed towards collectors, we aren't the big money makers for Hasbro/Takara and it only makes sense that we would get screwed, but even some of the stuff they have to draw in more of the younger crowd strikes me as being sub-par. Back off Hasbro, you're trying to hard! You're going to flood the market with useless, unappealing crap and do more damage to your profit margin than you will good. Focus on quality products for all age ranges instead of flooding EVERYONE with cheap, novelty, bull**** items.
Even as my own kids are outgrowing many of the TF products out there I still get input from my friends' kids (I'm the cool "uncle" that gets called in to fix their TF's or help their parents figure out how to transform the stuff when they cant) so I still get input on how the younger kids react to the new product lines and know whats a "hit" and what "sucks" and I can tell you right now, Hasbro is setting themselves up for some serious wasted effort this coming year. There are a few items out of these pics that I'd actually put out money for but that amounts to a VERY short list.

Yea, hat the same idea when I saw that Grimlock pic.
Maybe that's their explanation for them being called "Dinobots", they're the Autobots, mutated into Dinosaurs.

A terrible idea, but one that's kinda interesting.

Pretty much what the FOC Dinobots were: Ordinary Autobots whose dino forms were forced upon them unwillingly, resulting in their being freaks.

I know that, but you gotta view my comment in context with the comments I quoted, and include the "the" in "the Autobots", as in Bumblebee, Optimus and the rest of the Movie Autobot cast.

Thunderlips is likely Optimus, since he has like two heads and Prime loves heads so much.

It's for Scorn. Strafe's the two-headed Pterasaur (we presume).

Though, the two-headed thing might have been a goof since the toy might have been mistransformed with the two head halves simply not properly connected.

At least I had the good sense to hold off any criticism until I was able to take a closer look at this toy. It's very obviously a Rescue Bots toy so with that in mind I'll have to say that I absolutely love this. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about it. Cool concept, great design... Keeps all the recognizable "Prime" elements while giving him a Beast Mode that's easy for the youngsters to deal with. I may have to get two. One for my own Prime collection and one for my nieces' son.

As far as any negatives go... I'm saving those comments for those of you who actually have the balls to dump all over a product intended for a 5 year old. I mean come on, I'm an ass but even I have more decency than to rag on a toy meant for a 3 to 6 year age range.

If the Kre-O sets are anything to go by, Galvatron (either a brand new Decepticon leader or Megatron reborn) is indeed going to make an appearance... with a bang.

I thought there weren't any Decepticons in the Rescue Bots series. He'll probably use the drill and T-Rex head to rescue people from burning building and such.

Make it happen, Hasbro!

Kre-O Glavatron Factory Battle - March

Seems like Kre-O is struggling with how to spell Galvatron. The customizer sets misspelled it too, but as "Galavatron".

Incidentally, I wonder what the Kre-O sets will be like. I doubt they'll make anymore "make a giant robot out of bricks", so I guess smaller Kreon-based playsets... but that's a pretty broad idea. Could there still be really big sets (like Lego does), or will they stick to $15 or less (like the few VS sets they've done). Regardless, I hope they take the opportunity to catch up on the first 3 movies worth of bots.

We’ve previously mentioned the Transformers Battle Masters in our coverage of the UK Toy Fair, and subsequent toy mentions, but we’ve now obtained some good pictures of both packaging and the figures themselves.

Over at the Idle Hands blog, there are pictures of both package designs and each of the Battle Masters available. The Battle Masters can be operated with two game controllers that are interchangeable. There is also an app for iPad/iPhone to complete the battle. The starter pack includes two bots, “The Diesel Destroyer” Optimus Prime and “The Calamity of Humanity” Megatron. Other single pack bots that will be available include Starscream, Prowl, Bumblebee, and Barricade. Battle Masters are set to be available April 2014.
