To coincide with Earth Day, the official Transformers Facebook page has revealed Transformers: Age of Extinction Power Battler Junkheap, a Decepticon garbage truck is a collaboration with Waste Management. Fans will remember one the Decepticon soldier in Transformers: Dark of the Moon scanned a garbage truck during the final battle in Chicago. A similar garbage truck was during the filming of Transformers: Age of Extinction, but has yet to be revealed as an actual Transformer. Check out the image mirrored below:

In celebration of Earth Day, we’ve partnered with Waste Management to bring you an exclusive reveal of a new toy based on a character from Transformers: Age of Extinction — Junkheap. Power Battler Junkheap features a crushing attack claw that when activated can turn Autobots into scrap! Look for this figure on shelves this fall.

He just HAD to be one of those one-step gimmicky figures...

You'd think he'd have just been a reshell of one of the various Long Hauls, given that he's basically him.

Basically that, yep. Although I'd expect to see way more of these out than Generations movie stuff, since the simpler stuff seems to be more of their focus.

I've always wanted a garbage truck TF. But I don't want garbage TFs. I may hold out hope for a deluxe version of this guy somewhere down the line.

Doesn't fit my collecting style. At least these new movie figs are close to the aesthetics I like.

Maybe it's just the recent GoBot DVD news, but since the action feature is apparently the rear CHOMPing, it really seems like this guy should be called Flytrap.

Only other garbage truck TF is Animated Wreck Gar, but a few years prior, when all those KOs of Armada bendy-Prime with different trailers hit Big Lots shortly before the Big-Crackdown, the only one I bothered with as the yellow garbage truck with a sticker proclaiming, "Super Truck-tor" on the sides. Since then, I've wanted an official TF with that alt in every universe. This guy should do well with anyone enamored with the flying garbage truck in the Lego Movie finale.

I'm pretty sure we'll get a proper figure soon. Perhaps they're releasing all the simpler stuff first so they have more time to work on the more complex figures and make sure they're up to scratch.

you can't imagine how I have hope on that, so far all this toys already released are nothing but kid's toys. I will wait as well for real collection figures like they always bring to us. ;)

Looking at the truck upside down, it does appear as if his head is identical to Long Haul's. His does look a little more long and sharp in appearance though.

If we don't get him in the Generations line, I'll probably pick this up.

As far as we know, Generations Grimlock, High Octane Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Scorn and Slug are all the more 'complex' figures. As opposed to the Flip and Change, Smash and Change, One Step and the such. :D

Probably better that than Butt-Munch but hey, I call them as I see them and I tend to see things a bit skewed.


Sure would be nice to display this figure on my shelf next to Dispensor... Oh, that's right! I don't have one of those because Hasbro US dropped the ball on that one. I have to pay an exorbitant amount of money to have one shipped from Japan once it's released 7 YEARS AFTER THE FACT!

I have to admit I was excited to see news of this figure although it would have been nice to have actually gotten one in the DotM line when we FIRST saw it have screen time instead of 3 years later!! Also it will certainly be nice to see this in the actual shrunken Deluxe class instead of in the sub-line that I won't touch with a 10 foot cattle prod but I'm not holding my breath for that to happen. So, despite the initial coolness of the concept my figure count still stands at potentially 1 for the movie line and Hasbro now has two more strikes against them in my book for bone-headed moves.

Realjze something, Dispensor was not a Hasbro call, that was something the CGI deprtment did as a whimsy. Hasbro didnt know it was there until they saw the prescreening. Two years to develop, tool, and produce, the best we coulda done was a repaint in ROTF.

We also have some official images of Takara Tomy's upcoming retail campaign minicons. These are new translucent versions of minicon/targetmaster figures that came in the Transformers Generations Legends Class Waves 1 and 2. We have a black Roller, a red Blazemaster, a blue/yellow Waspinator, and a blue/gray Chop Shop. These will be available at select Japanese retailers for fans who spend 3000 Yen on Transformers merchandise. Check out the official images mirrored below:

this looks awesome.

while i don't think it should've looked this way for the movie.. but something close would've been nice.. maybe a nice cohesive paint scheme for all of the dinobots would've looked nice rather than the lucky charms we're getting in the toy line.

Go for Beet Chop, as "beet" is the short form of "beetle" used in a lot of Japanese toy names. Plus, it kind of calls back to Chop Shop's name in his parent line Kikou Chuutai Beetras: Beet Gugal. I know, Beet Gugal is a really dark grey, but his original art constantly color him blue.

Beet Gugal on Diaclone.net.

Ok, back to the clear Legends partners for a second: they're apparently considered Microns (et tu, TakaraTomy?) and available at these stores:

Silver Roller: Toys 'R Us Japan
Micron Jolt: AEON
Buzz Saw: Joshin Kids' Land, Bic Camera
Beet Chop: IDEON, Yamada Denki, Best Denki, Yodobashi Camera, Hiroshi (I'm guessing) and Shirobotan Ishinomaki (again, guessing).

All giveaways with 3,000 Yen of Transformers product in May.

Beet Chop's stores are a doozy, anybody know these?

Next time, copy and past the actual link to the site. Saves the news guys the hassle of looking and verifying :)

And called the Mini-Cons. Didn't expect them to be straight re-releases of Dark of the Moon Triceradon and Rav however.

:lol:

But really, as bad as these are at representing a character's evolution thru the years, I'm kinda interested. Those Mini-Cons would go great with PCC Grimstone (but they go for stupid amounts on the secondhand market), and what's not to love about MORE dinosaurs?
Of course, I already have the Pteranodon and don't need a second, Grimlock doesn't come with one, AoE Slug isn't terribly exciting, Scorn and Slash don't have Mini-Con counterparts, and that sabertooth tiger doesn't have an AoE counterpart...

Strafe looks awesome and the 'Swoop' mini-con is a bit of fun. What's not to like?

Besides, Takara will probably do a G1 Strafe repaint anyway.

Felipe León Nájera.

Grimlock comes with his blaster, sword and crown. From what the pictures show, there seems to be no changes to the mold or it's deco, and only the packaging is affected. It's now made to match the Masterpiece redesign after Acid Storm and Soundwave created a new numbered series of packaging.

They hire professional photographers, last I checked. They're not Hasbro employees, so they wouldn't know how to pose him.
