Seibertron.com Team member Mach is on hand in Singapore at the beautiful World Resort. His first wave of photos can be found below and it still some time before the event launches! Displays of the origins of Transformers have been spotted, and the empty room where an interview with Hideaki Yoke, considered the father of Transformers, will be soon be filled.

Mach has sent another load of pics, this time detailing the Transformers Prime Arms Micron campaign. These Deluxe scale figures will include dynamic new "partners" that will transform from weapon to robot or animal. Also on display are 2 Lucky Draw style Voyagers from Dark of the Moon; Megatron and Sentinel Prime!

Pity I can't make it this time around. Thanks to Mach for such cool pictures! I wonder if there would be any more Tf cons in Singapore..

Anyways the Takara's Prime figures looks really good; glad I pre-ordered them.

Man, they are really Rolling Out the red carpet for this event. I mean it looks really good! I love the wall displays they are using, I wouldn't mind seeing more o'that.

Is there a demo of FOC on the floor?!? That would be awesome. I'm hoping they show us some wave 3 Generations or some news about some new United figures. (Like better looking Combaticons)

I hope to wake up tomorrow and be razzle-dazzled by a flashy flurry of titillating Transformers tidbits & perfectly procured photographs.

I know right? It's like a Transformers convention can be more than open auditoriums and dealers tables? Who would have thought?

It's.... troubling to say the least.

Although Grandmaster CP proclaims that these Prime little guys aren't truly Microns, I might be starting a rogue faction...

Oh yes, who's ready for a new line up of Seekers? I know I am. Thanks to Seibertron.com News Crew member DevastaTTor, We have our first look at Transformers Generations Deluxe, Fall of Cybertron Starscream! This guy heavily resembles his War for Cybertron appearance. The indication is that he will be released Spring 2013. DevastaTTor adds:
Before a huge crowd for the Hasbro/Takara Tomy Brand Development and Product Panel Discussion, Hasbro revealed the first Generations figure to be released as part of wave 1 in 2013: deluxe class Starscream.

Transformers Global Brand Director, Jerry Jiovin, also teased the crowed a little with the potential for the release of FOC Grimlock. When asked by a member of the crowd if we'd see him in the same wave, he sheepishly grinned and answered " Stay tuned..."

Despite some overcrowding at times, I thought for a first attempt, the show was fantastic. Hopefully I can plan some business at the same time next year and make it an annual event.

It was a good primer for SDCC 2012.

It's about time! At last, a Cybertronian Starscream who is not from the Galaxy Force family.
Sure, it's still a year ahead, but I have high hope that dude will not be cancelled. Hey, any seeker molds are money printers with all the possible repaints.

I'm looking forward to get you, my precioussssss..................

In regards to screamer.
That is one SICK deluxe. I had to keep reading over the description due to the detail (and being buzzed) to make sure. Seeing the trio of seekers in that mold will be awesome. I'm guessing the wing armaments are removable for hand held guns. Heres hoping theres some sort of better arangment that can eventually be worked out, that frees the wings up a bit in alt. mode.

Also revealed at Cybertron Con 2012 during the Hasbro/TT Brand Development Panel, two new Transformers Prime characters: deluxe class Sergeant Kup and Rumble. These two new figures are scheduled to be released as wave 5 of the RID toy line in October 2012. Kup appears to be a repaint of the upcoming Ironhide mold. Since I don't collect TF Prime figures, Rumble may already be a repaint of another figure. However, if not, we can only assume that the repaint of this mold will be Frenzy. I'm sure someone can clarify for me.

Great Starscream, I love cybertronian models, but I am confused now... If this is part of Fall of Cybertron, why is it wave 1? I was thinking those figures we saw in Toy Fair would be part of Generations wave 1 to be released still in 2012: Jazz, Optimus, Shockwave and Bruticus... :???:

So, will all the Generation Deluxes be in smaller sizes? That sucks... They will display oddly with the old ones...

Yawwwwwnnnn. I need a new Seeker mold like I need a new Prime, Bumblebee, or Megatron. Give me a Tetrajet and we're talking. Otherwise, pass.

Frenzy looks AWESOME though. Love the face on chest motif.

Usually with every new year it resets the "Wave Clock" back to one.

This may well be the best Seeker mold ever. Now to hope we don't have to wait like 5 years to get Thundercracker and Skywarp widely available.

It looks tons better than the current Classics mold, and I'd totally buy every new-character redeco of it tbh.

One would assume they would make a repaint of Thunderscracker and Skywarp, but Hasbro/Takara has a way of letting us assume the obvious and then not follow through with it.

The Michael Bay Transformers movie brought us a Starscream in his movie colors and a Thundercracker. Then Target released an exclusive of movie Starscream in original Generation 1 colors, but we would not get a Skywarp until ROTF and then it was a Wal-Mart exclusive.

With the Transformers: Animated line, we got a Starscream, a Skywarp, and a Target exclusive Sunstorm, but Thundercracker never came to fruition.

With Hasbro's Classics/Generations, we got a Starscream, a Ramjet, an Acidstorm, a Target exclusive two-pack of Skywarp and Ultra Magnus, a second release of Starscream, and finally much later we got a Thundercracker (after so many of us had given up hope and bought the Takara version instead). And even then, we got a Thrust and a Dirge before we were able to complete the original three seekers of Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp.

Then recently, with the release of DOTM deluxe figures, we got a Starscream in movie colors and even Thundercracker in the same wave from Hasbro, but the Skywarp that was introduced would only be available through Takara only.

So Hasbro/Takara has a way of teasing us into cardiac arrest over these new possibilities of new Seekers, only to piss us off when we only get 2/3rds of the original Seekers. So don't count your FOC Seekers yet. I suspect one of them will be available as a retail chain exclusive or released only through Takara only.

Here's my recap of today's (March 11th) panel at Cybertron Con. Pretty long but I wanted to make sure I covered everything.

Today I attended day 1 of Cybertron Con in Singapore. I attended the Hasbro/Takara Tomy Brand Development and Products panel discussion. Here are my notes-I apologize that they’re a little spotty: was hard to write and shoot pictures at the same time.

Today’s panel consisted of:
• Hasbro Transformers Global Brand Director, Jerry Jiovin
• Hasbro Transformers Global Brand Design & Development Vice President, Aaron Archer
• Takara Tomy Transformers Design Legend Hideaki Yoke
• Takara Tomy Transformers Executive Kei Ikezawa (missed his actual title)

MAIN PRESENETATION - 2:00-2:30PM

Jerry Jiovin was the MC for the presentation portion of the Brand/Product panel. He discussed a lot of different products lines in 30 minutes and included video clips as he introduced each of the topics.

1. Announced upcoming releases: 29 new Kreons figures and 16 new Transformer robot sets
2. Showed the commercial where Bumblebee dances at the stop light.
Transformers Prime
1. Highlighted all the Asian channels/providers currently carrying

Transformers Prime
2. Showed extended trailer – believe it was for season 2
3. Jerry admitted that he hasn’t been this excited about a Transformers show since G1 during his youth; loves the current story line and future potential.
4. For some reason, the Movie Trilogy toys were slotted in the middle of the Transformers Prime segments – showed slide with Asia-only DOTM repaints including Soundblaster and G1-head Wheeljack (slide also included Movie Ride Evac) and another slide for the Movie Trilogy Optimus Prime with trailer (deluxe sixed, not Con exclusive)
5. Multiple slides highlighting the current Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise figures, one featuring the upcoming Knockout and Hot Shot figures (deluxe wave 3).
6. Introduced the Weaponizers, Prime figures with weapons that pop-out in both robot and alt modes – slides featured Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, initial release Fall 2012.
7. Slide for Prime remote control toys: initial wave includes two cars, Bumblebee and Knockout. Both can transform from car to robot via the remote control. Coming fall 2012.

9. Cyberverse scale chart comparing the Legion and Commander class figures to the upcoming Optimus Maximus figure/play set. Will hold 9 Cyberverse figures-releasing falls 2012.
10. Final slide with the packaging.

2. Showed the game trailer
3. Slides showing all of the deluxe figures we’ve already seen: Prime (v2), Jazz, Shockwave and the Bruticus figures.
4. Interestingly, during the Q&A session, one fan asked if they’d be releasing a more game accurate colored version of Bruticus. Jerry said that they’re actually still working on the final colors for the initial release-are aware of fan comments online.

CYBERTRON CON REVEALS AND Q&A SESSION - 2:30-2:55PM

End of Main Part of Presentation, on to Cybertron Con 2012 exclusive reveals.
• First up, Prime Robots in Disguise wave 5 figures Sargent Kup and Rumble. See my earlier post for more and pictures.
• Next, Asia-only repaints for additional G1 characters. See news post for more.
• Big surprise: previewed 2013 Generations release of Fall of Cybertron Starscream. See news post for more.

Q&A Session
Didn’t get notes on all of the questions but here are a few that stood out-questions and answers are paraphrased below.
1. Q: Are you planning on releasing any additional Leader class figures for the DOTM movie line? A: No, but we missed an opportunity to produce a Leader Shockwave. Underestimate the importance of the figure in the movie.
2. (This one was a cringe-worthy moment) Q: Third party toy makers are producing some amazing toys. Any plans to collaborate with one to produce what could be the most incredible Transformer ever? A: No. We do not condone what they do and would never work with them.
3. Q: Any plans for a release of a Generations Fall of Cybertron Grimlock? A: Stay tuned…
4. Q: What other Generations figures are in the pipeline right now? A: Right now, big focus is Fall of Cybertron figures-nothing else at this time but more to come afterward.
5. Q: Any plans for Dino from Dark of the Moon. A: No, Ferrari would allow the license for it.
6. Q: Any plans for a Beast Wars or Victory revival (actually two questions)? A: They’re working on a lot of new ideas that will extend show into new areas while bringing back original concepts from the past.
7. Q: What’s the working title for Transformers 4? A: Just calling it Next Transformers movie for now.
8. Q: (To Yoke-san) Looking back, what is your favorite Transformer? A: (disappoint most fans) currently likes the Prime deluxe Vehicon. (whatever)
9. Q: Any plans to produce the other Dreads from Dark of the Moon? A: No, movie line is over mostly over for now.

End of Presentation

Will add, one touching moment during the Q&A session, one fan was nearly moved to tear with addressing Yoke-san.

But I am very unhappy with "Generations" being morphed into "Fall of Cybertron". If it must be cybertronian, I would rather have gotten a real pyramid seeker. Im sure we will never see Thundercracker. Thats how it usually goes.

No G1 Trailbreaker, Hoist, Skids ??? And I-Gear basically owns the mini-bots. (not legally but in fans hearts)
