Weapon: Twin Sonic Cannons
Bringing the literal definition of Heavy Metal to life, Entertainment Tonight has tested the upcoming SDCC Transformers set. War for Cybertron Optimus Prime, Megatron, Soundwave and Fall of Cybertron Jazz have been repainted, given hair (yes hair), and paired with Transformers: Animated Ratbat and Laserbeak to form the metal band Knights of Unicron!

I'm sorry but this has to be the most ridiculous statement of all Seibertron history.

Seriously though, why Jazz? That toy is universally reviled. I'll admit I can't think of a lot of alternatives FOC-wise, but still

Um, its cute...but I wont pay the exorbitant prices for it.
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.
TFCon List: Classics Skywarp, General Optimus, BW Airrazor, Transmetal Tarantulus, Alternity Prime, Fire Convoy

Nothin's Gonna Stand In My Way...of getting these!


(actually, I'm not arsed about them, but I do appreciate the novelty value. At least it wasn't something ridiculously Mass Market appealing like say a G1 leader in classics style)
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Maybe they had a truckload of them headed for a landfill in New Mexico and decided to use them for this instead.

Nothing can top the one behind the Video Game Crash of 1983. :twisted:

Seriously though, we have Prime vs. Megatron, Blaster was unavailable for Soundwave so they went with the next best music geek... I'm guessing.

Nice idea, but that's all it is.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

I'm not sure what to say. It's not something I'd ever want, but I'm kinda pleased it actually exists.

I harness my inner Yoda when I say...


Break me a F$%^&*G give!!!

I would expect something this crazy from Takara Tomy but not from Hasbro. Gosh will these be stinking up Hasbrotoyshop.com. Maybe. What is this abomination going to set people back $99.99? $129.99? Dare I say $149.99?

I am so excited!...for my wallet. This is an easy pass. Again, I'm sort of grateful for that, though. There's so much other great Transformers stuff to get this year that it's a relief I won't have to add another "must have" SDCC exclusive on top of that.

So is this supposed to just represent generic 80s hair bands or someone in particular for each figure?

I bought the little Linkin Park figures for the Linkin Park Soundwave set for the gallery and I'd like to do something similar for this set if I can find some Action Figures or toys that are what these are representing.
