Are you ready for some new Transformers Generations rumours? The last list was from a while back so I think we are overdue. These rumours all come from a post on 4 chan so take all of these with a grain of salt and it will be fun to see what pans out. The reason we are newsing this now is because some rumblings from toyfair seem to back part of it up, especially the mention of smaller figures still being a part of the next line.

These rumours mostly concern the last part of the trilogy, Power of the Primes which is due out in stores January 2018, but there is also mention of Titans Return since there will possibly be transition figures like Buzzsaw in Combiner Wars.

Here is the text found above if you have trouble reading it:

Prime Wars next Gimmick is toys to life. Download an App and scan the card that comes with the figure onto your iphone. Play "stages"(it's unkown what type of game it's going to be) using said character.

Titanmasters will be replaced by equally smaller guys. They won't be headmasters but closer to Micromasters that become target masters or weapon platforms.
Legends will still be able to cart the tiny men around
Prime Wars will still be mostly 88-89 crew. Things like Turbomasters will show up from time to time.
All 5 Dinobots will be made as well as the remaining 3 insecticons will appear. Ransack will show up towards the end of TR as will Barrage. Venom will either be Wave 6 of TR or Wave 1 of PW. He's like Buzzsaw in CW where he may not be able to fit into wave 1.
Scorponok will be Next Titan after Trypticon
TR Arcee is just a repaint of TR Loudmouth

Speculation: Hasbro Confirms HASCON 2017 Presence, Does Not Mention SDCC

Here's a piece of speculation for you all. As you might have noticed, Hasbro had a big presence at the New York Toy Fair this weekend, and brought several reveals for this year's lines of toys, from The Last Knight to Robots in Disguise to Titans Return (all of our coverage can be found here and the related galleries here!) - now, they have tweeted a general thank you message to close off the event, reminding fans that their next stop is Providence, Rhode Island in September 2017, for HASCON.

The odd part? San Diego Comic Con, a staple of the entertainment media industries, is taking place in July. Is the message just a slip of the fingers, or is Hasbro actually not going to be taking part at SDCC? We have no further information at the moment, and this post is merely rumouring and overthinking, but what you do make of the possibility? Do you think we're reading this correctly?

Via fellow Seibertronian Emerje, and the same source as the Transformers: The Last Knight Megatron leaks (though probably not the actual source..), we have what is purported to be the first look at the Hasbro Transformers display at New York Toy Fair!

The image is small, grainy and not entirely useful, though we can see a Grimlock, an Optimus Prime both in robot mode; a truck mode Optimus, and another tank/truck vehicle (perhaps Hound or Onslaught?); a Bumblebee mask on the left; the three headed dragon at the very back. Given the nature of the image, it is very likely that the massive dragon is in fact art or a prop, and not a toy in itself, but feel free to speculate on what might show up this weekend in the Last Knight thread or below!

Rumour for Titans Return Wave 5 Deluxes

Fellow Seibertronian Autobot N has found some probable spoilers for the next wave of deluxes as part of Titans Return. The owner of Canadian collectibles site Canucktables, Hoffman, has heard from his distributor of the next wave of figures. Now please remember that distributers are not Hasbro and do not know all the facts so there can always be something lost in the translation (like when a distributer said there would be an MP Tank Megatron after misinterpreting the image of Legends Tank Megatron shaking MP 10's hand). Here are Hoffman's quote below for you to interpret as you wish:
Hoffman wrote:I run a toy store an TFs are a small part of what we sell. This info came from a solicitation from a distributor. I was told the info was ok to share, however with how strict Hasbro has been with their solicitations, I'm still wary about how much info I should divulge.

Hoffman wrote:I have no idea if this info came out and got buried in speculation threads or something, but I have some info on the next wave of TR Deluxes.

The new figures in this wave are Misfire, Twintwist, and Windblade. All retools.

The other figure listed in the assortment is Wolfwire. No packout details.

Hoffman wrote:Misfire - Triggerhappy
Twintwist - Topspin
Windblade - Highbrow


Wolfwire being rereleased makes sense since he is the only figure from the first 2 waves to not be rereleased yet. Let us know what you think! We will see it this is all true next week at Toy Fair 2016!

In any case, for those keeping track, this is how Wave 5 is shaping up to be:

So this is Wave 5 then and what they will show us at Toyfair:


Titan Master

C2389 Optimus Prime
C2390 Toraizer
C2391 Ramhorn


Legends

C2398 Cosmos
C2399 Seaspray


Deluxe

Misfire
Topsin
Windblade

Voyager

C2396 Octane
C2397 Blitzwing

Leader

C2388 Overlord

Though Hasbro is not participating, as we knew, at Toy Fair UK 2017, there is a new article about the company and its franchises in the latest issue of Licensing Magazine (which you can view in full here). What we find inside are a number of licensed products for My Little Pony, Nerf and obviously Transformers for the upcoming year, from schoolwear to stationery, to easter eggs and books - but of particular interest is a new Panini-released bi-monthly comic featuring a new scenario not far from what we've heard about the next season of Robots in Disguise. Some speculation, however, might point towards a The Last Knight setting too, given that we are in a movie year again, and it would be odd not to have that publicity tie-in. So, some potential spoilers in the article below, and a short transcript beneath it!

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath, we now have the full pack-in comic for Unite Warriors Lynx Master, by Hayato Sakamoto. While not yet translated it tells the story of how Sky Lynx and his team came to be a combiner while involving past Unite Warriors releases. It also hints at a possible Unite Warriors Victorion in the future.

In addition, fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade has written up a rather comprehensive synopsis to give some clarity for non-Japanese-reading viewers.

Sabrblade wrote:Let's see, Cybertron gets blown up in the year 2011 during The Headmasters cartoon. Sky Lynx and the other four Autobots (with Ratchet somehow not dead, Wheeljack already got an explanation for his being alive) arriving to find the planet destroyed, much to their horror. They find Sunstreaker and Ironhide (who's also somehow alive again) in bad shape, as well as the shambled remains of Vector Sigma, who upgrades Sky Lynx and the other four who came with him into their UW bodies.

Ten years later, 2021, Cybertron's back in business but attacked by the recently-created Grand Galvatron. Marissa Faireborn and her daughter Sue bear witness to this alongside UW Ironhide. Trailbreaker puts up some resistance with his force field, which, from the looks of it, manages to detach Grand Galvatron's arms from his torso. Wheeljack uses the "Immobilizer V2" to disable Ghost Starscream. And Hound uses his holograms to trick Zombie War Breakdown into thinking Curse Armada Thrust is Medic Knock Out.

Down below, in the Oracle chamber first seen in Beast Machines, Ratchet works on either the dead Convoy or a new body for him (can't tell which) in front of the Oracle, within which lies Vector Sigma in its new Bw Eggbot redeco body that would have come with the Million Publishing Alpha Trion redeco of the Generations Scourge toy had that gotten released. Wandering Roller bursts in aiming to destroy Convoy, but Sky Lynx subdues him. The rest of Grand Galvatron's components burst in and are met by Sky Lynx's team.

Grand Galvatron and Lynx Master are formed and duke it out in the chamber. Lynx Master uses Hound's hologram fist to make multiples of himself, but Grand Galvatron overcomes this trick and blasts the real Lynx Master. As the battered Lynx Master lies on the ground at Grand Galvatron's mercy, he uses his Ratchet foot to heal his injuries and bites back at Grand Galvatron.

Elsewhere, five Decepticons stand in the shadow, all appearing to be the Victorion molds minus Rust Dust. According to this, their leader, the one based on Pyra Magna's mold, muses the following of the situation to the others: "As the wife of the Lord of Destruction, this cannot be ignored."

Rundown of Rumoured Upcoming Transformers Titans Return Toys: Broadside, Getaway, Legends Kickback and Reflector and More

Fellow Seibertronian Decepticon Sunstorm found a post online from TF Fan Chainclaw which relates to images of unrevealed toys he saw. He gives a detailed list of his thoughts on them below but here is the breakdown. Remember of course, that since this is all unrevealed items, take this with a grain of salt, as we do when we usually get rumours of this kind. Not only that these are subject to a persons point of view, but there have been many occurences of Hasbro not releasing a product that was being developed. Now onto the latest rumours of toys that might come out at the tail end of 2016 or in 2017:

Headmaster Laser Prime which looks to be inspired by both Star Convoy and G2 Prime.

Headmaster Triplechanger Megatron which can turn into a jet and a tank. Will probably be used for Blitzwing.

Getaway as a repaint of Chromedome.

Headmaster Triggerhappy (his G1 toy was a Targetmaster).

Headmaster Hot Rod

Headmaster Triplechanger Alpha Trion (while we have seen the art for this toy, Chainclaw did expand on the vehiclemode looking like Vector Prime's).

Transformers Convention & Club Exclusives Alpha Trion Gallery

Headmaster Weirdwolf

Headmaster Doublecross

Magnus Prime, which is a blue redeco of Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus, as a reference to the Diaclone Ultra Magnus.

Transformers News: Rundown of Rumoured Upcoming Transformers Titans Return Toys
Transformers Generation One Diaclone Ultra Magnus (Movie Preview Version Ultra Magnus) Gallery

Tidal Wave which may share the mold with Broadside. Probably a triple changer and thus a voyager headmaster.

Decepticon Clones made up of components looking like the Predaking ones. For example there was a Horri-Bull which could double as Tantrum.

Legends Sharkticon (Gnaw)

Legends Reflector (Shockwave redeco)

Legends Kickback

Legends Brawn

SDCC Fort Max comes with Red Sword. This was already hinted at in a previous leak which mentioned an exclusive sword.

Here is the detailed breakdown with extra descriptions and thoughts on what Chainclaw saw:
Chainclaw wrote:An anonymous friend of mine showed me a bunch of stuff on his computer last night that Hasbro is working on. A couple things were just concept art, or those packets they show investors. But the majority was actual toys. Anyways, he said I could talk about it online, as long as I didn't mention him by name.

So that said, it would be great to have some images, to represent what I saw when I'm talking to people. So I have a series of requests that are spoilers of what's coming later in 2016 and 2017. So anyone not wanting to know shouldn't read past this point. Cool?

Okay, I saw a Headmaster Star Convoy / Laser Prime from G2. It pretty much looks like Star Convoy, except that star-ish shaped yellow thing on his chest looks blockier, like a letter T. And his shoulders are very Laser Prime, sticking up high, with two circle things on the front of each one. In truck mode he's long nosed, but red. Not black with red flames.

Just as Sentinel Prime was obviously Astrotrain, Headmaster Megatron is obviously Blitzwing, but with a Megatron head. You can see his tank turret on his back, and jet fins on his ankles. He comes with two guns which merge to form his big cannon that can plug into his arm. Megatron's head looks very G1 in head mode. In "Nebulon" mode it has a red torso, and grey limbs.

Chromedome's getting repainted as Getaway. Head looks G1.

Triggerhappy is a headmaster who looks very G1.

Hot Rod is a headmaster who looks G1 in vehicle mode. Robot mode looks vaguely IDW to me. Small waste. Long thinghs. Big hexagonal kneepads with vents in them.

Alpha Trion's a triple changer. Beast Mode is a wolf with a unicorn horn (I have no idea why). Jet mode looks very Vector Prime.

Weirdwolf looks good. Very G1.

Powermaster Prime is getting a Diaclone repaint, so it's a blue COE truck. They seem to be calling it Magnus Prime or something along those lines (I can't remember for sure). Odd, since it's not white.

Tidal Wave seems to be coming back (investor art, photoshopped, rough). Looks like it'll share a mold with Broadside. Vehicle mode seems to be USS Flagg homage. Part of "strength series". Tidal Wave's head is called Powerhouse. Grey body. Green limbs.

Decepticon Clones. Looked to me like they have a Predaking. And the D-clones were Predaking parts. Same with Horri-Bull.

Sharkticon looks very round and G1.

Technobots look like you'd expect. But Afterburner is weird. Instead of making him G1, or just an orange Takara Groove, he's got this really long warped/bent windshield. It looks awkward to me. But that was my only complaint from everything I saw.

SDCC Fort Max comes with red sword. Has blue hands, instead of white.
That's all I can remember right now. Anyways, very excited. Would love to have any of these done up, just for the sake of chatting with friends about it on FB, etc.

Thanks-

With a couple of weeks until the New York Toy Fair, some images from upcoming Transformers products are starting to crop up around the internet. In this particular instance, the Snakas blog has collected images from the Bottalk.com boards here, and we've mirrored below what looks like Titan Masters Scourge, Mindwipe, the Chromedome head and possibly an Alpha Trion robot mode. What do you think of the very blurry images? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

Griffin, the owner of Australian fansite Ozformers, has attended Toyfair Australia 2015 and has posted a quick summary of what he saw and heard. Please keep in mind that the mention of release dates and exclusivity are most probably only in regards to Australian or Asian retail.

He wrote the following schedule for the Takara MP releases:

Gold bumblebeeJuly
Convoy reissue
Tracks (he states this is not MP25)
MP25 in Sept (he couldnt reveal the name of MP 25)
Two new "sports cars" for October and November

He then gives a breakdown of the exclusivity (at australian retail) for the platinum releases:

Myer: Conehead Seeker pack and YOTG pair

ToysRUs: Insecticon pack, Perceptor/Blaster, Trypticon, and Dinobots.

While this last news may be fun, it should be noted that this could be a reissue of the G1 deco AOE Dinobots that were released at Comiccon, similarly to how the FOC Bruticus issued at Comiccon was eventually released as a platinum set.

It was also mentioned that if Hasbro do a GEN Slingshot & Wildrider they would come out next year as Combiners are going to be at least two years. This is in line with the statement from Hasbro that only 16 Gen deluxes would be released in 2015.

Also, leader Starscream (redeco of Leader Thundercracker) would be part of wave 4.

The two Hasbro MP releases of this year would be MP Starscream (MP11) and MP Bluestreak, the later will be released in July.

Lastly, it was mentioned that Loyal Subjects wave 3 should be out in the next month (April).

The Australia Toy fair started March 3 and will end the 6th.
