Hot on the heels of their announcement at the BotCon Hasbro panel we now have official images of this year's SDCC exclusives Transformers Prime "Rust in Peace" Zombie Cliffjumper and Special Deco Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Bruticus giftset courtesy of IGN! As usual both items come in special edition packaging. According to the panel, the Cliffjumper set will include a shard of dark energon, a dark energon attachment to wrap around Cliffjumper's bodey, and a box that can turn into a torso for the zombie head to set on. The Bruticus set comes in book style box with the actual figures packaged in a separate removable tray.

I laugh at how Bruticus' artwork barely even comes close to translating to the toy. *sigh*

Cliffjumper however ... I think he'll go to the back of the shelf. I'm sure i'd have a nightmare where he comes to life, jumps down and begins to gnaw on my head

Boy am I glad that I decided to collect just Prime figures instead of Prime AND WFC/FOC figures.

It would be too much!

That Cliffjumper head is pure, unfiltered, Grade A nightmare fuel.

Did anyone else notice that Bruticus is stomping on Jazz?! I hope he's not being brought into FOC just to be killed off like Bay did in the first TF movie.

I've really been pleased with the announcements, especially the collector's Bruticus. I've had pretty good luck w/ getting exclusives the past few years. Here's to hoping that continues since I won't be at SDCC. I am worried about the lack of Dinobot discussion though...at least why has there been no mention of FOC Grimlock with all the hype he's getting in the game?!

Wish Hasbro said how much those SDCC figures are going to cost... I need to prepare my wallet (especially since I can't go to SDCC). If they are not so expensive, would anyone be willing to pick me up a Rust in Piece Cliffjumper if I paid for 2?

And I'm guessing that:

Bruticus - all 5 figures, this set is more like the game colors
Boxing Bruticus ... box looks awesome. Beautiful artwork. BIG box.


Refers to Bruticus AND his box, and not two Bruticus figures? And:

"Rust in Peace" Cliffjumper (red, more paint apps to make him look more banged up, purple clear windows, comes with energon piece to reenact scene
"Enclosing Cliffjumper" - clamshell blister head (box) done in clear purple, hand painted, figure is viewable from backside of packaging. Comes in another box around it.


Refers to the Terrorcon Cliffjumper and his creepy head box respectively as well?

I hope they flip the image of the completed Bruticus on the inside flap of the box because Blast Off is supposed to be the right arm, not the left arm, Vortex is the left arm, not the right arm, Swindle is the right leg, not the left leg, and Brawl is the left leg, not the right leg. Because you know many of us hardcore Combiner fans will complain about it otherwise.

It's...Doug and Wendy Whiner. Doug.

Anywho...onto the topic at hand...

I'm really let down by a lot of what transpired today. I mean, it wasn't a total washout, but it really kinda sucked. (This is yet another reason why I don't go out of my way to find a way to BotCon.)

On the plus side:
Masterpiece Optimus looks fantastic, and I like the packaging. It's surprising how big they made it, as far as display pieces go.

Prime IS continuing, we know Airachnid and Dreadwing are coming. (YAY!)

On the fail side:
FOC Soundwave is a glorified upsize of the WFC Deluxe mold, with a spring launcher built in. (Oooh whee! Oh joy!)
Soundwave's minions aren't nearly as awesome as I was hoping they'd be. ( =\ I is a sad panda. )
Bruticus (in game colors) retains that gold/copper colored plastic for Blast-Off and Vortex. I do worry that they could be prone to breakage, down the line. In a way, we're kinda lucky the regular release has no gold plastic. We may not have to worry about it breaking, or even have the worry in the back of our minds. (Plus, since it's an exclusive and a limited run, what incentive does Hasbro have to make sure they use the best quality materials to make it? This is clearly a cash grab for them, once they make their dough, what do they care?)
Kickback the Derpic...I mean Insecticon. Egads. That thing is fugly and a total pass for me. (The only way I'll buy him is if they slap the PRID name on his packaging, because it means he's our only Insection toy for that line.)

Plus all the news of "We're gonna try..." (no, you won't lift a damn finger, and you know it!) and no mention of Breakdown, nor a figure of him on display...*sighs*

I don't know why I do this to myself. I don't know why I allow my hopes to get up. You'd think by now I'd have learned to go in with the lowest expectations and at least try to be pleasantly surprised.

depending on the price i might get the gift set, hopefully its cheaper than getting each figure individually.

I can almost guarantee you it won't. If you look at past exclusives, they usually price higher than their retail counterparts.

Not to mention, they have to cover the cost of the packaging, the different materials used, the smaller run, etc.

If the prices remain where they are ($12.99-$14.99, depending on retailer), we'll pay about $65.00-$75.00 for the set at retail. If the prices go up to $14.99, as mentioned on the display cards, TRU will jack their prices up even higher, which means it'll be a minimum of $75.00 for the set.

I could see SDCC Bruticus being an $80-100.00.

Yes! Soundwave!

I hope we get images of Generations Soundwave soon - the data discs sound like a neat update. I just hope they have a major G1 aesthetic.

Side note - someone on this thread said they're bringing back the Prime First Editions? Where did that rumor come from?

I really don't understand their logic

a) Bruticus - why make a character based on the game then colour him differently and make the game version exclusive??

b) Dinobots - I realise that Grimlock is popular however the fall of Cybertron design is very similar to the classics design so why make another and threaten with problems to release the other four is beyond me. Especially when figures such as Prime who already have a WFC/FOC figure are getting redone. Especially when year after year people request them.

c) No Arcee - again people request her every year - what is really the problem? She will sell!!!

Posted by warzon3 on April 28th, 2012 @ 6:51pm CDT
Just a question for anyone that was there.... does FOC Kickback looking anything close to G1?? Or is it more like the generic FOC Insecticons that we have seen?

Dinobots doesn't surprise me, anyone else read that online article saying Hasbro had written off Dinobots from all things moving forward and they had to be thoroughly convinced by the video game creators just to put them in the game.

I love how the said if Bruticus does well they will think about a Devastator. There is no way I'm buying Bruticus. The combined form is just too hard to get past, they didn't put any time into it at all. Bruticus is not going to get the sales. Kiss Devastator goodbye....

Honest answer: Money. This is a cash grab, pure and simple. They're going to milk convention goers and then the public.
I give them this much credit, they're being honest about it this time.

If I remember correctly, it was said that Hasbro's more or less retired them. If that's true, then it's simply a case of they just don't care to make 'em anymore. Or as our British and Australian friends would say: "They can't be arsed to give a damn anymore."

darqen wrote:c) No Arcee - again people request her every year - what is really the problem? She will sell!!!


It was said that Arcee is Primeverse only, this year. They have no other plans for her considering she's such a big part of Prime, now.

I hope SDCC Bruticus isn't 'too' exclusive. I really really want one.

You guys can have Cliff, I'm over trying to create his 4 minutes of being a zombie from a single episode from the beginning of a season that's now @season 2. If he were still around on the show, I might care. At this point, the only new Cliff I'm getting is Takara's purple one, and that's just because the car mode looks badass and I'm a sucker for clear purple plastic.

A lot in the lineup for Generations, and Soundwave/Soundblaster sound pretty cool. I guess there are some lines I'll be collecting yet (getting sick of Prime, as I've completely lost interest in the show after seeing season 2 up to this point, so much potential wasted with re-hashed plots/characters from other shows (Animated+Beast Wars+Movie anyone? Hire some real writers Hasbro, please, that show had SO much potential).

SDCC exclusives have been known to pop up in Toyworld Australia stores. I got burned on Nemesis Prime, paid out the wahzoo for a SDCC "exclusive" only to find him released nationally a few months later, much cheaper than what I paid.

Haven't the Transformers SDCC exclusives been offered after the show on HasbroToyShop.com consistently for the past several years? Why is everyone on pins and needles about these exclusives? If you really want them, you WILL get a fair shot at regular manufacturer's pricing. Just keep your ear to the ground. Heck, you can still order the SDCC First Edition Deluxe Optimus Prime in the special Matrix of Leadership packaging AND the NYCC Prime Bumblebee Taxi and G1 colors Arcee set.

Generations are all FOC related. Masterpiece Optimus seems to utilize the last Generations series packaging. Perhaps as a way to tie him to Grimlock and Rodimus.

Unfortunately, no. I don't think they plan on updating G1 Soundwave. I think the closest you'll get is the old SDCC set from a few years back. =\

No g1 mold will ever be part of my Classics collection.

So this means that news wise for me Botcon was super useless, save for Optimus Prime.

I hope Perfect Effect finally brings out that Soundwave they teased us with a while ago, I'm sick of waiting.

It's going to expand to become Classics/Universe 4.0 eventually, but it's launching with just FOC stuff to capitalize on the game. Voyager Soundwave is based on his WFC/FOC model.

No DOTM Deluxe Class Mirage, Soundwave, Leadfoot or the Leader Class Megatron and Shockwave they promised us.

Not like i was expecting them to keep their promises but it's still a huge diappointment.

Hasbro is getting lazy, too many retools, remolds and repaints. I like the idea of the Voyager Soundwave and Soundblaster but why they share the same mold and have the same datadisc/minion pack-in is beyond me.

Technically, deluxe DOTM Soundwave and Leadfoot molds WERE made, and the figures were sold, albeit only in Asia. The Target store exclusive version of Leadfoot (with a rumored Twin Twist figure) got as far as having a product code in Target's computers, but never got to retail for some reason.

The ONLY DOTM Mirage figure that made it to production was a non-transforming 'Speed Stars' version, something like a Matchbox/Hot Wheels sized car, and it only had his robot form sculpted on the bottom of the car. I'm not sure a deluxe version of Mirage was ever in the pipeline or even seriously considered, since another company holds the exclusive rights to do toy versions of Ferarri cars like Mirage's movie altmode. Even having said that, I wonder why they didn't do a genericised version of the Ferrari Italia, like they did with movie Sideways transforming into an Audi R8 in the movie, but the toy being a generic version of that. Mirage was kind of badass in the movie, so I DO wish they'd made a deluxe of him..

As far as the Leader class movie figures, I'm not too fussed about them. I have the premium version of the first movie Megatron, and his altmode and robot mode are the closest to his movie incarnation for my tastes. And I don't care about not having a leader class Shockwave, since he didn't do much in the movie. Leader class movie Soundwave would have been cooler. I also wish they'd done a Human Alliance Topspin, even if only to complete my HA Wrecker trio.


Now back on topic, I'm a little underwhelmed by the announcements except for a few things. I LOVE that they're repainting Arcee as Flamewar. Even though it's an existing character (albeit with a scarce toy), I don't think you can ever have enough fembots. That's also why I'm glad they're doing Airachnid in Deluxe and Cyberverse toys. I do like the Masterpiece Optimus, but doubt I'll get him unless it's convenient or not terribly expensive. I'm not a huge Optimus fan, but I do like the detail on MP versions. Not a huge Soundwave fan, but I do like me some cassette- er.... datadisc bots (especially Ratbat).

Other than that, not a lot piqued my interest, but there are a lot more Generations figures to come, so we'll see...

So if Voyager FoC Soundwave is near the size of Deluxe WFC Soundwave(since TFs are smaller now), then their wheels are about the same size. Those data disk guys are about the size of his wheel in disk form. WFC Soundwave's wheels are about the size of a quarter. Which means the disks are around the size of a quarter. Maybe a tad bigger.

So... they're pretty tiny. O.o
