In a bit of a preemptive strike leading up to this weekend's big Toy Fair event Hasbro decided to drop an pretty big reveal on us this morning during their Toy Fair 2014 Investor Day Meeting! We have our first toy image of the Fan Built Bot winner Windblade! Not only that we get another shot of the previously revealed Generations Leader Class Jetfire. We'll provide a more detail summary of the meeting later today, but wanted to go ahead and share Windblade. Check out the toy image below.

Looks cool!

At least we won't have to hear people complain about how it doesn't look enough like the G1 version.

looks okay from what I can see. purple gummi sword? cool. colours are nice and bold. head sculpt is unique without looking too kabuki-like. quite a Prime Arcee look going on in the legs especially, but it works for what they've designed.

Yuck, that head design sucks. Can't wait until a Slipstream remold is available though. If that ever gets made

Toy Fair 2014 has yet to officially start in New York City, but we're already getting into the swing of things with some preliminary reveals! Today Hasbro were presenting their wares to their investors, and the slideshow was made available to Seibertron.com. They touched upon the following:

- The new film, talking about its theme of 'a truck looking for a friend', and the inclusion of the Dinobots.
- The subdivision of the franchise with Rescue Bots, Age of Extinction and Generations lines for three types of fans, from younger to older.
- CyberTRON Monday: online midnight madness event in May and various launches around the world leading to Age of Extinction premiere June 27.
- The redesign of the brand with new packaging, logos and digital platforms; several new games coming in 2014.
- Demonstrated the new simplified transformation for toys on stage (for younger fans and Age of Extinction), though no footage available. Products included: Stomp and Chomp Grimlock one-step transformation; Mega one-step Bumblebee.
- Rescue Bots taking on new dinobot forms, Optimus becomes Primal - Season 3 announced.
- For the committed fan: Generations and Platinum Edition lines (popular in Asian and North American markets). Products included in presentation are Leader Jetfire, Deluxe Windblade and Masterpiece Soundwave.
- Battle Masters Transformers, previously revealed.

If you wish to listen to the presentation yourself, take a look at the embedded video below, courtesy of Seibertron himself.




Check out below for an overview of what 2014 will bring in terms of transforming robots, including the previously announced Jetfire and Windblade.

Both look good. Would have liked to see the proper size of the figures but in time I will see.

Cosmos and Swerve exist don't they? They have Galleries here and I'm sure they were instock at Kapow toys in December (no longer though, it seems...)

These Generations toys are lovely, but are disapearing (or not appearing at all) far too quickly...and it's not like they will make it to stores here in U.K. Am I gonna miss out on the entire line? I can't pre-order every new fig at once :lol: it'd be nice if enough actually stuck around, y'know?

Windblade and Jetfire look awesome! (damn it I better get them both :-x )

I just love how Hasbro assumes that I am an 18+ year old boy :/ ... I think it's time to update the whole boy/girl division in the toy market.

The gender divide and aiming of the brand is really disheartening. I'm surprised they haven't caught up with the Let Toys be Toys campaign. The whole Angry Birds Girls (PINK!!) and Nerf Rebelle (PINK!!) is actually ridiculous.

It sure is..especially when you go in to the older Walmarts' and they still have the "Boys" and "Girls" signs hanging from the ceiling to separate the toys. I remember I went into a Toys R Us in CT last year and had my hands full of TF's, an older woman and her husband were standing their probably shopping for their grandson or whatever, gave me the oddest look then asked me "Are those for your son?" :BANG_HEAD:

The Product Innovation and Franchise Approach slides that talk about the age brackets for each set of toys.

Hasbro can't win. No matter what they do, a segment of the market is going to complain.
