We got a small taste at what's to come with the on-floor gallery of several of the new Generations toys revealed today, but are you ready for a whole serving? That's right, it's official images time!

First dish of the meal are the Generations Legends figures, whose ranks were reinforced with the arrival of Nemesis Prime (obligatory baddie redeco of the previous Optimus Prime mold) with Spinister(redeco of Bumblebee's partner Blazemaster); Cliffjumper (more than obligatory redeco of the previous Bumblebee mold) with Suppressor (redeco of Optimus Prime's partner Roller); and currently parnter-less Thundercracker, Windcharger, Powerglide, and Bombshell (that's right, he's Bombshell now, no longer Hardshell!)

Loving Powerglide, Megatron and Bombshell. The Arcee looks cute but Delicate warrior is cuter IMO. Very impressed overall though, looks like the dark days of 2012 are well and truly over

The legends look good, and I really like Bombshock.
I don't like the way Arcee was done too terribly much. Too much backpack is the primary issue. Also, points to me for saying Chromia is a remold.
Brainstorm looks really flepin' good, even if he is incredibly simple.
Optimus Prime is....Super Blocky! It makes me laugh a little bit. That, and how simple he is as well. And his vehicle mode is interesting too.
As for the Megatrons, well, Armada is sadly a remold of the IDW(?) and does not appear to come with a minicon, though he sports the pegs for it. Also the mold isn't as proportioned as I'd want with a Megatron, with too-thin legs to support the large mold.
Also, much simple.

All-in-all, some may be unhappy with the more simple transformations. Some may be happier with the blocky-bots. But, I think that if this is handled right, these voyagers and leaders are the right kind of toys to ensure the next generation of fans to support the Transformers.

I don't care what anyone says: that Armada Megatron is absolutely brilliant. Though I wish the cannon was attatched to a joint that could allow for the hip-mounted fusion cannon. :-(

Nemesis Prime looks sweet, been looking for an excuse to buy this figure

Cliffjumper looks a bit Decepticon-y with that purple detailing

Thundercracker is kind of meh, we've got FOC Seekers and that's good enough for me

Windcharger looks really weird, I know the original Tailgate was a repaint, but this is just not doing it for me

Powerglide couldn't look any better unless this was scaled to a deluxe

Bombshell is rounding out the Insecticons, what do you want to bet we'll have a Kickback soon

Arcee = Instant buy

Chromia looks great, but that backpack looks worse then the original mold's

Brainstorm NEEDS a Briefcase!!!

Optimus is...ok? I'm praying that is just a bad photo of the robot and that the Vehicle will feature more paint

Both Megatrons look like crap. I'm sorry, but I was expecting the awesome IDW design and not a brick that makes the G1 version look more fun. (I love the G1 design, but honestly, he look's SOOO brickish)

Bombshell is a must-have for me. Hopefully we get a Kickback, too (and even better the other "Deluxe" Insecticons).
And hopefully I can find a Shrapnel.

I wonder if they'll be ditching the partners, given how they haven't shown any for those 4 and how Bombshell and Powerglide lack any ports. That'd suck, but maybe they'll be a bit cheaper. And maybe less prone to unfortunate shelfwarming since 2-packs seem cursed in that regard: PCCs, HA Basics, Data Discs...


Really disappointed with how Armada Megs turned out, and I dunno what's even going on with that Voyager Optimus. Don't suppose that's indicative of what the new design team can do?

So does the G1 Megatron have Minicon ports as well? Maybe this means that we will be getting some more Minicons as well, but I sort of wanted one packed into the Armada one.

I will be getting Arcee, since it is finally an official G1 Arcee, but I can't help but think that it would be a bit better if the backpack could fold up a tiny bit more.

I was pretty upset with Armada Starscream at how inaccurate he was to the show, but I got used to it. I'm feeling the same way about this Armada Megatron, he's missing a ton of stuff that makes him Armada Megatron imo. But he might grow on me.

It seems the official pic is (of course) mistransformed: http://www.seibertron.com/events/fullsi ... =1&image=8

Her 'skirt' seems to be able to fold up somewhat into her backpack proper. A lot better imo.

Next group of official images is of Generations and Platinum Edition portions of Age of Extinction! Nothing much on the Generations front lines, though we do have a look at the oddly Tracks-esque Hot Shot, a redeco of Crosshairs.

Image

Image

Next up is the Breakout Scene set (affectionately known to fans and representatives as "Farmageddon"), which features a screen-accurate redeco of Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, an odd redeco of Generations Skids as Rollbar (who is clearly based on Shane's Chevrolet Sonic RS rally car), and a blue and black redeco of Dark of the Moon Crankcase, whose deco is evocative of his Generation One namesake, and seems to be based on one of the vehicles used in Agent Savoy's convoy during the raid on Cade Yeager's farm.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Want all five of the vehicular Age of Extinction Autobots without the hassle of hunting down each individual? Look no further! We also have wind of an upcoming exclusive that will include seemingly unaltered versions of Optimus Prime (who, actually, is altered, in that he has a faceplate and a black weapon), the 2014 Camaro version of Bumblebee, Drift, Crosshairs, and Hound.

Image

Image

And to wrap up the Platinum Edition exclusives revealed thus far, we have a two pack of Generations Leaders Optimus Prime and Grimlock! Both figures seem to sport much more screen-accurate decoes than the regular retail releases of these figures.

Going by these official pics, those Megatrons don't look that great. The overall appearance gives off too much of that boxy 80s look and simply lacks the fresh new style that nearly all of the recent Classic Generations figures have. The worst thing in my opinion are those thin legs though. If I had to choose one, I'd go with the Armada version. It still has the thin legs, but I think the colors fit better and that head sculpt is fantastic. I'll probably end up getting both though.

Everything else looks incredible except for that Optimus Prime. I like the truck mode, but that robot mode reminds me of a simplified figure. I'm hoping OP is just another case of the official pic making the figure look much worse than it really is.

BRAINSTORM FTW,

While I have to hand it to Hasbro for finally giving us a proper G1 Arcee, I was hoping she'd have more IDW in her. Still looks nice, though.

Chromia looks good, but I'm not sure I would hunt for that one. I mean, if I see it, I may get it. The character just isn't super important to me.

OK, so homestly, I'm a little dissappointed with how Optimus looks. BUT, he is a new mold figure, so there's that. Besides, we'll be getting the original Voyager mold shortly in that two-pack. And really, I do love that version of Prime.

Megatron...I'm...not sold. He'll be big for sure, but his legs are PRETTY skinny.

Why do they keep making that Crosshairs mold's windows clear? It makes the trenchcoat look weird, with part of it just hovering at his feet.

"Farmageddon" is pretty neat, though Crankcase only works because "G1!" Otherwise, he's rather boring, basically the original but with bright, cartoony blue instead of grey.

Could have placed the cars better. Drift is "driving" on Hound, destroying the whole illusion.

With the mainline shenanigans out of the way, it's time for the more expensive spectrum of the Transformers fandom: the Transformers Collectors' Club! TFSS 3.0's selection has some interesting choices:

* Generation One Krok from Generations IDW Megatron (sports a new head and comes with Gatoraider, a redeco of the crocodile Arms Micron)

* Generation 2 Starscream from (surprising nobody) Classics Starscream

* Nacelle from the Classics Seeker mold (regular Seeker noggin with BotCon 2007 Thrust's wings)

* Serpent O.R. from Takara's Generations Ratbat (who is G.I. Joe Serpentor homage and an homage to Devils Due Comics' GI Joe vs. the Transformers crossover series)

* Zap with G.B. Blackrock from Generations Bumblebee mold and is an homage to a canceled Block Town toy line that Takara was going to come out with in 1995. Blackrock is a Kreon companion for Zap.

* Tarantulas from the Junkion mold, and will be accompanied by Prime Airachnid's Arms Microns (possible Airachnoid homage?)

According to our team present at the panel, there will be a seventh mystery figure to be shipped with the sixth and final figure.

Check out the mock-ups of these figures below!

I think it might be one of those similar designs with separate molds things, like how Energon Starscream is similar to G2 Smokescreen but they don't share any actual tooling.

Speaking of retools (and Starscream), they couldn't save either Nacelle or G2 Starscream for next year's FSS?

Hideous every one of them, was really interested to see new versions of Prime and Megs, also the bonus of a proper CHUG Powerglide, but Hasbro have really screwed these up, over simplified transformations with blocky miss proportioned bot modes. Good thing the 3rd party firms are knocking stuff out of the park these days.

At this point I wish they would just stop using that stupid Classic Seeker mold. We've since gotten the newer and better FOC Seeker for them to use. Of course that's just my opinion. I know that G2 Starscream was just a repaint of the G1 figure so it makes sense for FP to use it. But would it really hurt to change the physical appearance of the character to better fit today's style? The Classics Seeker is clumsy, blocky, and old.

Aside from G2 Screamer and Nacelle, I'm pretty happy with the reveals as long as Tarantulas has his colors adjusted.

If there's any leftover stock after shipping the figures out, the Club usually sticks the individuals on the Club Store. Alternatively, one can go to online retailers such as Big Bad Toy Store or TFSource and get specific individuals from there.

Y'know, as I was looking at this thing, I was getting a Powermaster/Godmaster vibe from it for whatever reason. If this gets a third party Powermaster converting trailer/armor, I'd be game for it.

But besides that, I'm perfectly happy with my Classics Voyager. Had this been revealed exactly a year ago, I would've pounced on it, no questions asked.

I think another part of the issue is that they've come up with plenty of things for their comics that are based on pre-existing toys and could easily be used for things like the FSS, and then not gone ahead and produced them. The "Beast Wars: Uprising" designs, in particular, are a very visible case of this, but it goes back way further. To say nothing of they fact that I'm not sure what's stopping them from doing pre-existing designs like Ser-Ket or Flatline that are already based on a pre-existing toy mold.

I know that G2 Starscream was just a repaint of the G1 figure so it makes sense for FP to use it. But would it really hurt to change the physical appearance of the character to better fit today's style? The Classics Seeker is clumsy, blocky, and old.

Aside from G2 Screamer and Nacelle, I'm pretty happy with the reveals as long as Tarantulas has his colors adjusted.



I love the seeker mold cant get enough of it. Hope we get that red seeker for the free figure. I would love that. The FOC seeker mold is just ok. Too video gamish for me...

How?

I thought you had to buy the whole set...

All I want is Krok


If there's any leftover stock after shipping the figures out, the Club usually sticks the individuals on the Club Store. Alternatively, one can go to online retailers such as Big Bad Toy Store or TFSource and get specific individuals from there.


Oh, what's the average rate for just one?
