Site owner Seibertron was on the scene of the post-Hasbro Panel showroom display, and we here at Seibertron.com bring to you our first look at new Kre-O Kreons Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Starscream! These Kreons are similar to the Microchange Kreons of before: same idea, but different execution. How different? The robot and vehicle modes are much larger, and, unlike Kre-O sets from before, these require no partsforming at all! Take a look at the four images below, courtesy of Seibertron himself!

UPDATE

Also, according to the Big Man himself, eveybody's favorite Dinobot Grimlock will also be joining Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Starscream in the first wave, and a Triplechanger character (who, we do not know at this time) is planned for release during Fall 2014. No images at this time. Sorry, Kreon fans!

If Prowl is any indication, you should pay import prices ;)


What's wrong with the domestic prowl release? I thought there were no major changes between them reported so far. Has something come up?
Hasbro's MP Prowl costs more than Takara's MP Prowl, even when import prices are factored into the cost.

We need a Titan Class Trypticon! Not a War for Cybertron battleship that transforms into half of a dinosaur.

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for... official images for the newly-revealed Generations: Combiner Wars Aerialbots and Stunticons! The Aerialbots, comprised of traditional team members Silverbolt, Air Raid, Skydive, and Firefly (originally Fireflight. Darn those trademark laws!) are joined by Alpha Bravo (a very Vortex-like character replacing Slingshot) and honorary Aerialbot Powerglide (revealed at BotCon last month), who is revealed to also transform into a weapon capable of being wielded by the Aerialbots' combined mode, Superion!























Meanwhile, their Decepticon counterparts, the Stunticons, are comprised of Motormaster (a redeco and heavy retool of the previously-revealed Voyager Optimus Prime), Breakdown, Dead End, Dragstrip, and newcomer Offroad, an apparent duo-homage of Generation One Ruckus and Wildrider, whose vehicle mode deco Offroad's vehice mode is based on. Also included in Team Stunticon is an as-of-yet-named Legends-class sports car, rumored to be Blackjack, based and named after the Generation One character of the same name, who forms the chestplate of the Stunticons' combined mode, Menasor!

The new series looks good. I wonder if it will be a darker storyline than TF Prime.

If you want to know what I mean by darker watch the show Young Justice. Its for kids. ;)

And to go along with that batch of Generations images, here are some official stock photos for the upcoming Robots in Disguise animated series! The batch includes Legion Optimus Prime and Strongarm (new Autobot character), Hyper Change Bumblebee, One-Step Underbite (new Decepticon character) and Sideswipe, and Warrior (Deluxe size) Bumblebee - who is, we remind you, the main star of the show. Check them all out below!

It's been said by Hasbro that it's the opposite.

Nope! Just the opposite.

I love these even more now :D Next year will be a busy year for me. I'm personally not bothered by any member changes as I plan my collection around what looks visually appealing to me...Plus I freaking love gesalts of all kinds.

That Superion is everything I have ever wanted in a combiner. But why did they miss form him by leaving Airraid out?

Interesting... it looks like the combiner's hands and feet are the same part that can transform. I love Superion, and I'm seriously debating whether or not to get the Stunticons to display separately.

Really? I thought it was $60 and change. I paid $80+ from BBTS for the Amazon exclusive with one launcher and the coin.

Honestly, I'm just glad they aren't trying to force the integration of the appendages into the figures themselves. They tried that with Fall of Cybetron Bruticus, and we all know how well that turned out.

I am liking the direction of the new deluxe. The style and details Hasbro is pulling off are really something. I know it comes at the cost of more simple transformations. But I am more than willing to pay that price if the figures are look more complete and like actual action figures like they do here. It will be an exciting year in 2015 indeed :)
