Yeah, it's really strange how they went out of their way to add knees and elbows to Starscream that aren't part of his transformation, but Optimus and Bee lack elbows because they aren't need to transform them. It's so strange, especially when there are better ways to do that Optimus and they chose a fake chest over a transformation with elbows.

Btw I dunno why people are having a problem with a fake chest on toys! coz Optimus has always had one, so has Jetfire(not the Bayformer one) and I'm sure that some other figs have too

Optimus often has a real chest, though sometimes his abs are "faked." I can understand a fake chest when toy designers are trying to match an on-screen look or something that was designed for media first, because those designs are often more complicated to translate into a legitimate transformation between robot and alt mode. But, these toys aren't based on anything pre-existing, which means, for me, that the less fake kibble, the better, as far as design goes. Hasbro went with a LOT of weird choices for this line. None of these look appealing at all, which is fine, because I doubt they were made with me or any other collectors in mind.

Hot garbage is especially smelly garbage, not sexy or fashionable garbage. Think of an open dumpster on a hot summer day. Yeah, that kind of stench is not pleasant.

Transformers Authentics 4.5" Toys Listed on Amazon with Official Images

Postby william-james88 » Sun Dec 17, 2017 3:03 pm

While we have had sightings and in depth reviews of all four toys part of the new 4.5" Transformers toyline, we never got the actual stock images. Any image would be given in the form of Weibo leaks. And the reason is simple, there have been no listings, even though the toys are out already in the Philippines.

Finally, we have listings on Amazon (not currently in stock though) with the official stock images in high resolution. These fnally give us the stock images for Bumblebee and Optimus Prime's robot modes and Megatron and Starscream's vehicle modes. Them being on Amazon means that these are not destined to just be for dollar stores and the like but instead readily available at mass retail. This was already hinted by them appearing at Toysrus in the Philippines.

The listings also lists this as the "Authentics" line which was a word we previously saw on the Chinese language instructions. Of course, Amazon tends to list the computer listings as they appear (for instance, all the celestial code names for the movie toys) so while we know Authentics appears in the listing name, it is still unknown if that is the actual name of this series or just listing code from a bad translation. Authentics is not an actual word and could be based on the small logo we see on all Tranformers boxes. It is similar to how the listing for the "Chaos on Velocitron" set was in Toysrus' computer as the "Generations Speed set". Those are two very different names, so what do you call it? And what would you call this line?

Below are the links to the listings followed by images.

Bee looks like a Happy Meal version of T30 Legends Bee with a weird altmode design, Megatron looks good but the tank treads make him look like he has backpack straps, Optimus is sad and confused about his alt mode and bot mode being meshed into one design, and Starscream is almost good except for the lack of blue and the nosecone being slapped onto his crotch.

I know these weren't meant for collectors, but if these are supposed to go with the word "Authentics", then they make the upscaled Legends figures have a better bang for your buck than these things.

While they're alright for what they are, an inexpensive and uncomplicated effigy of a kid's favorite character, it's pretty weird how the decepticons have so much more EFFORT put into them.

It really seems like the line isn't called "Authentic" since the same logo shows up on all Transformers figures now. Maybe we should just call it "Transformers 2017" until the cartoon gives us a proper name.

Or just the generic line without a year. "Authentics" can be a nickname, like "GDO series".

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

I think "Evergreen" works better as a nickname since it isn't plastered on every figure out today.

But so could "Evergreen". And also, there wont be a show. The upcoming show is Cyberverse and while it uses those same designs, it changes the proportions similar to Transformers Animated, and that will have its own toyline. These toys themselves are not linked to any show.

I still think calling them 4.5" as the difining factor is best, since its similar to how one would distinguish between lines in other Hasbro properties like Star Wars.

Yet. I predict when the cartoon does come out these figures will find themselves on new packaging to tie in with them.

It kinda feels like they didn't know what they wanted with this line. With Bee and Prime it's oer-simplified transformation with little to no articulation. Than with Megs and Scream, you got easy transformations, but ball joints on pretty much everything but the head. So what gives with this?

Renders of Transformers Authentics Bumblebee, Grimlock, Megatron, Starscream

Postby Va'al » Sun Jan 07, 2018 1:22 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Via Hasbro directly, and the part of their website that caters to media and investors, we have their new Corporate Social Responsibility report for the year 2018 - and along with all the various ways in which the company is pledging its commitments, we also have another look at some fairly small and low resolution renders of the Transformers Authentics character models for Bumblebee, Grimlock, Starscream and Megatron!

We've seen some of these already under the 'evergreen' nickname, but this is probably our best look yet, so check them out below. Also, head here to read more on the 113 page document from Hasbro, if that is up your alley.

If only Hasbro had designed PotP Starscream after this "Evergreen"/"Authentics" design instead. It would have been a smash hit, I'm certain.
