Our very own Va’al is, as we type this, checking out the UK Toy Fair. We will continue to bring you updates on what he sees as he sees them, with pictures and descriptions.
At the first stall is Paladone.They are displaying a variety of collectibles for the 30th anniversary. There are two series, one that will be rolled out in April/May; one to be rolled out in October. There will be 30 mini figurines from three generations: G1, Prime, movie (Dark of the Moon.)

There will be 15 characters per wave; each one in blind pack with lenticular card. The cards will combine together into a first generation poster of Megs or Optimus. Pricing for the blind pack is £2, £2.50 for bubble pack, with mini stand included. They will also released as 5 packs.

But the figurines aren’t all. Also on display are a heat activated mug (featuring an Autobot logo with glasses and moustache which disappear when hot liquid is poured in), a hard foam build kit, G1 character pencil eraser set, notebook, water bottle, car magnet (not shown), egg holder and toast cutter Optimus!

Take a look at the images (and updates as we get them!) posted below:

UPDATE:Subject to Change
From Winning Moves: We may see the following games available in the next year. They are unofficial and subject to change, but we are hearing they are possible: Monopoly, Risk, Connect 4, Top Trumps - Saga edition (would be heavily based on the four movies and /or G1 animation, and similar to Star Wars trilogy edition products. And if you take a look at the box pictured, you'll note that there is even a picture of Drift featured.

UPDATE:
Check out these R/C toys, on display from Nikko:
Word is that there will be five figures. Two that transform will be Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. They'll have lights and sounds; voicechips along with transformation noises. They are expected to retail for $59.99 and $49.99, respectively. They will be boxed in robot mode.

The helicopter is said to be a character, but there is no name at this time.

The other two RC cars shown are Lockdown and Bumblebee, and will not transform.

So that's what they meant by "Prime Minifigures." I was hoping it was something else. DAMMIT!

I'm still going to get them, though. They look fun and cool. :P

Also, looks like Wheeljack & Shockwave are also getting toys, since they were not previously listed. On top of that, the paper below lists Hardshell, Soundwave, and Bumblebee!

Though they're not what I wanted, I'm still going to collect them all! :KREMZEEK:

Are these the same minifigs that Goldy International announced earlier? Kinda disappointed, but might still get them since they do kinda look sweet.

But I'll be getting that mug, that thing is awesome.

All this is great Hasbro, but what about those Masterpiece figures? Those would really fit in for the 30th anniversary. Those minifigs look neat, but I pretty much have them already and they transform, they're called Botshots. That mug looks awesome :lol:

Takara makes the Masterpieces, not Hasbro.

And the ones that are already out that Hasbro hasn't released yet would require licenses from the companies whose cars the altmodes are based on, and their smaller sizes make them trickier to fit into Hasbro's size class/pricepoint system.

The reason Takara can get around both is because the licenses are easier for them to acquire than they are for Hasbro, and Takara doesn't have a set size class/pricepoint system like Hasbro does.

Also, I wonder if that's a mask that Drift is wearing or if it's his real face. :-? Either way, he looks really cool.

And, finally, we have confirmation in the OP that the Lamborghini Aventador is Lockdown.

Drift looks kinda weird compared to other Movie bots, but ironically closer to a more traditional TF. I dread to see the proper toy of him, though. All 4 wheels end up on the shins, and the only other part that looks even remotely like it was part of a car is his chest.

Granted, me personally, I'm just going to get the Kreon anyways...

Why, Hasbro - do you keep using the Takara G1 boxart and not the US version? It shouldn't annoy me. But it does. :|

:BANG_HEAD: The more I look at those movie toys, the more I hate them.

The first movie trilogy toys were my favourite; DOTM were perfect. But the layout of this AOE line is too China oriented, too... anthro, with human body shape as metal was a costume for a human being... No, they're simply UGLY. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

I am more interested in the movies news, I like Drift but he feels a little much humanoid.
But his design is alright, nothing shocking , but I am really liking the New Optimus and new Bumblebee, sorry if they won`t have accurate toys... :HEADHURTS:

They're hard foam kits, panels that slot into each other. I'll see if I can take a better look today.

That G1 megs box art pic is for the Valentines Day cards that are out now I think, it looks like it pretty much.. I bought a box at Kmart the other day to check them out. They are pretty neat, you get 35 tattoos in the box too.. All the art is vintage box art except for bumblebees art..

While it may be the third day of the 2014 UK Toy Fair, it is our second day of live coverage from the floor. We'll be updating you as Seibertron's own Va'al walks the floor and takes in all of the cool new stuff that we’ll see premiered today.

Image

First up are offerings from IMC Toys. Available in either Optimus Prime or Bumblebee, will be intercom masks, walkie talkies, and a laser tag gun and chest pad set. Also available will be an Optimus Prime mask with a sound chip and effects. From an interesting poster inside of IMC Toys’ stall—Transformers: Age of Extinction will be the first film in a new trilogy, with the next one due out in 2017, and an animated series to be released in 2014.

More will be posted, as we know it.

RUMOR:
A reliable source at the Toy Fair has informed us that the grey cab-over truck we've seen pictured for months now is none other than Ultra Magnus.

UPDATE:
The following pictures come from the company Character. Pictured are “mashable” Transformers ball-like toys, called MashEms. Six characters are available (we can pick out Drift, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Lockdown, and Grimlock), and will be blind packed in a plastic capsule. There will be slingshot launcher available in both Optimus Prime and Bumblebee variants. Two series will be available; one for Prime and one for Age of Extinction. Also pictured are Bumblebee Rumble Fists, made of soft material and with sound effects, and sparring bags. Sparring bags were shown in both Optimus Prime and Lockdown variants.

Nice to see some of the new stuff, but I have to post a word of warning: Those MashEms are junk and have no longevity. People who have Power Ranger ones are finding that they've begun to rot and the liquid center has begun oozing out.

Mostly going by how the name "Crosshairs" seems to be the most ubiquitous Autobot name seen in previous AOE toy listings that isn't Optimus, Bumblebee, Drift, or a Dinobot. ;)

Though, Lockdown looks like an albino version of Darkseid. Scary. :twisted:

BTW, anyone know when in the hell we are going to see Legends Swerve and cosmos at retail? Let alone Kickback and Tailgate? The former was due out in SEPT 2013 and the ladder this month? We have seen NOTHING. Not even a out of stock listing on HTS. The only thing we have seen is some listings on amazon that you cannot even find if you search for those names. You have to use the link that was proved via this site a month and a half ago.

I smell a cancellation brewing. Just like the RTS scouts....

that's definitely crosshairs



hound has a beard remember?



the green guy has what looks like goggles so he is probably a sniper character (the crosshairs of a scope)


plus Hound is dark green this head is the same green as the corvette.

Trek - Excellent work, my friend. That is what I like. Solid proof. And you have provided that. With that said, cool! Can't wait to see them here, hopefully very soon. And BTW, from what I understand the UK usually gets the shaft when it comes to releases in a timely manner. Looks like the Brits got something before we did for once. Good for them!

This will be our last update from the 2014 UK Toy Fair. See below for some more toy news, as well as some cool pictures from around the show!

Some information from HTI: They will offer two track sets, subject to approval. One track set will be an Optimus Prime Challenge, consisting of a truck with a trailer and red track pieces with loop. The track will emerge from the front grill, and the goal will be to hit the target that has Bumblebee artwork. Set to include two diecase cars, Bumblebee and Lockdown, the grey Lamboghini (named as Lockdown on the package.)

In addition, a Grimlock track will be offered. It will contain a red track that ends at a Grimlock T-Rex. Cars will go up the dino's back for a jump, and Bumblebee car will be included.

From Sambro International, we have some first looks at upcoming games based upon Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Air Hockey game.

Close up of character design on air hockey table, including Grimlock, Optimus Prime, and Bumblebee.

Image
Gunship Escape customizable, handheld maze game. Package reflects 12 different mazes to try.

Image

Sling Slider. Appears to be a game of shooting discs around the play space to get them into one central area.

Image
Twin Pack of puzzles.

Image

We will close out with some pictures that were taken around the Toy Fair. You'll see the Optimus Prime truck, photos of the massive display floor, and more.

It's not a convention, it's not open to everyone, and it's aimed at retailers, press, and the such. I thought this was common knowledge. :-?

We also expected Hasbro to reveal little, as both Nuremberg and New York are soon, and that's where stuff actually happens. :D

Sure, I understand. I definitely appreciate the job you and others do around here to report the news. And you do a good, nonbiased job of it too. I guess most of us just expected more from this convention. That is why I posted what I did and I assume why others did as well. Again, thanks for the great job Va'al. If you didn't report these things then we would know nothing. And I do appreciate it very much. I actually enjoy all the news articles here, even if I get a little "passionate" sometimes. Always know I respect what you are doing and appreciate your time to cover them.
