Thanks to the newest seibertron.com member onions we now know of new Hasbro releases of the Transformers Prime line, specifically the Voyagers. He has been kind enough to share scans of the Malaysian guide book he obtained. While the book shows us stuff we already new was coming, it also reveals our first official pictures and confirmation of stuff we where didn't expect and well feared would never make it to Hasbro markets.
The book reveals to us:

  • Dread Wing: whom we knew was coming
  • Skyquake: the original version of this mold, we feared he would be cancelled
  • Thundertron: leader of the Star Seekers, the pirate faction, also he is not Leo Convoy
  • Ultra Magnus: he can deal with not being a repaint

We can assume so, but nothing's set in stone. Hasbro Asia has been releasing figures we'll never see, so..

I know we'll see Dreadwing, Thundertron and Ultra Magnus, but Skyquake could be up in the air. I mean, he's filler like Dead End is, but it all depends on how well the toys sell.

As of right now, things seem to be selling well, so chances are we will see all of these in the US.

As for me, Thundertron is a big pass. I hope he doesn't make an appearance in the show.

I hope they have time to correct the Skyquake <--> Thundertron error as seen on the packaging. Otherwise, looking forward to move voyagers!

It's no error: the profiles are next to the figures, not above or under.

Is it confirmed that Thundertron is a lion. Because the pics make him look more like a wolf.

What's with all the Thundertron hate?

Well they SHOULD get a US release, seeing as how they have those big goofy mechtech weapons and all that.

It says Lion Mode on the picture. :P


I do like the look of the planes, I might have to get one.
Not sure about Magnus and Thundertron, I'll have to see later on.
Not because they don't look good, though, they seem outstanding!

EDIT: Wait, is that an actual peg-leg on Thundertron..?
Holy Space Pirates, Batman! He's a must. Him and Dead End will be me Pirates, arr.

Does anyone else think that Dreadwing would make a good custom Jhiaxus. His bulky seeker-like body strongly reminds me of him. :-?

DAT BEAST MODE. DAT PEG LEG. DAT (relatively) NEW FACTION SYMBOL.

Thundertron will be MINE. The others too I guess, but they won't be as buy-on-sight.

nice to see that there will be a Skyquake release. Was hoping for some pink translucent plastic on it, but oh well. Maybe Reprolabels will sort something out, or he'll just look really awesome as is. Probably get him.

Magnus and Dreadwing I'm not overly concerned with. I could see me getting Magnus is there's a sale on, or I'm really itching for some TFs and he happens to be there. Don't get me wrong, the design is cool, but FOC UM will be my main one, at least until I see about getting a Classics and City Commander. This design is badass, but not really Magnus (maybe too badass?). If there's a funky Dead End of Hotshot style repaint, I might be tempted. Dreadwing...hmm...I don't want a vehicle mode Depth Charge, so passing.

Thundertron is the stand out here. Mainly because it's so good to see a big ol beast mode, and also because we're getting a 3rd faction. Really impressed by that. Despite the fiction, I'd have expected the toy release to simply be a Decepticon, or maybe even an Autobot. I'm not particularly familiar with the story about this guy, but it looks like a cool toy from what I can see, he's a sort of space pirate dude, and he's a beast. I can't see anything not to like...well, if I use my hand to cover up the stupid weapon thing. Maybe the AM version will come with something cooler?

Those giant guns stuck on the back of Skyquake and Dreadwing look great and not crappy at all. I'll bet the designers are really happy about the way that gimmick was added.

So, I guess Thundertron is probably an Asia exclusive - as it looks like he may be representational of that Asian Transformers mmo. Remember- There's a pirate faction in that game XD (and if I recall correctly that's the same faction logo)

I love them all. Money means I won't be able to get them all, but it's nice to know they're being made and I might see some in stores. :)

YES! YES! YES! There is a Voyager Magnus! I definitely have to have him. It will probably be the only thing I ever get from Prime, but he looks worth buying.

I, on the other hand, really would like to see him.

Having read Exodus and Exiles, and finding the style quite flat, I'd love to see some characterisation of a TF Captain Ahab!

I find these frustrating: they can make all these good looking voyagers for TF Prime but they can't make a voyager Generations Onslaught for FoC Bruticus! That could have made such a HUGE difference! Boooo Hasbro!!!
