My fellow Seibertronians, lend me your audio receptors!

One of the major stories coming out of this past weekend's Hasbro Media Day at New York Toy Fair is the launch of Hasbro Labs (HasLab for short), a crowdfunding platform intended to deliver oft requested and long sought after 'grails' to the various communities in Hasbro's fan ecosystem. Their initial project is the largest Star Wars vehicle ever: a 3.75" scale Jabba's Sail Barge from Return of the Jedi. With all crowdfunding projects comes a degree of risk: HasLab requires a 5000 unit commitment at $500 apiece for the project to succeed.



What does this have to do with us, the Transformer community? Well, if you haven't seen or heard the group interview with the Transformers Brand Team, some saw HasLab as a path to a no-holds-bar update to the Chaos Bringer himself: Unicron.

Would fans want to see a crowdfunded HasLab Unicron? What kind of pricing? Point fans to HasLab, talk about it, read about it, podcast about it. Talk about what you want to see, we’re listening. #Unicron


Transformers News: A Gateway to Unicron - HasLab Crowdfunding


What does the Seibertron community think? Should the Transformers Brand Team use HasLab as a vehicle to bring us the Chaos Bringer? Or would you rather see Hasbro's crowdfunding platform directed to create something else entirely?

Share your thoughts in the comments below, and let's get this discussion started --- the powers that Has-be are listening!

A scanned image from the latest issue of Figure King magazine - mirrored below via Planet Iacon and thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath - shows us something the magazine themselves call a 'scoop': what appears to be a new version, or at least an 'update' to the Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime (supposedly the MP10 version, at this stage), for the 35th anniversary of the franchise in 2019.

In the image below, we can see differences in the shoulder and ab grill compared to the previous figure, of which we've also included an image below for comparison. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion!

Coming to Transformers 35th Anniversary.

There's new design plan reveal Masterpiece Optimus Prime, shoulder and core pack are updated and new. Is there a possibility of seeing MP Optimus Prime 3.0?

We will update you for further details.

Amazon seems to be the hot spot for exclusives this year, or at least special edition toys. We already had listings for a Generations Blastoff and now Amazon.ca has a listing for an upcoming Deluxe Counterpunch toy.

Here are all the details given:

TRANSFORMERS E1864 Generations Special Edition Deluxe Counterpunch

Product Dimensions: 6.4 x 25.4 x 17.8 cm ; 4.54 Kg
Shipping Weight: 4.5 Kg
Item model number: E1864
ASIN: B077ZBCPDV

We do not know more than that. This is a very premature listing with stand in text but it is fun none the less. This is a character that has not had a release from Hasbro proper since G1. It is also interesting to note that the listing is only titled after the Counterpunch identity with no mention of Punch. He is said to be part of the Robots in Disguise line but that may be fill in text. We will write an update whenever we know more.

These Action Attackers turned out to be the entire Cyberverse line, with the numbers being the confirmed price points. You can find out more about that particular line, here.

With that said, we have new Action Attacker listings below. These are different than the previous ones and are probably for the Bumblebee Live Action film. Which means that, as with the Cyberverse line, the Bumblebee Movie line will be full of action gimicks.

E1886 Action Attackers Battle

E1907 Action Attackers Costanza

E1906 Action Attackers Bania

E3522 Action Attackers One Step

Along with these new listings were the following which also seem to be for the Bumblebee movie line:

E2093 Energon Ignitors Radar (TF Fan Nevermore informs us that "Radar" was previously used as Optimus Prime's code name)

E0753 Energon Ignitor Blue Light

E0752 Hot Rod Power Series

E0759 Bumblebee Power Series

And two Masterpiece listings which may or may not be for toys we already know are coming.

E0705 Masterpiece Autobot

E0835 Masterpiece Bumblebee

All of these listings were found on www.srbrinquedo.pt and we were made aware of them by TF Fan Nevermore.

This piece of news from the New York Toy Fair aftermath is entirely thanks to Transformers Twitter, as users The Last Gherkin, Jalaguy and original source of the image TFU.info combined their efforts to provide the best resolution of the tidbit - but what we have thanks to them is a first look at the female Decepticon character due to appear in the animated Cyberverse series from Hasbro and Boulder Media: Shadow Striker!

You can see artwork of her on the side of the Cyberverse Megatron box, which we do have in our own galleries, but not as visible as the further images mirrored below.

According to the official Facebook page for the Transformers brand, we will be seeing a new fan vote in the year 2018, as has been the case for the past four already!

The short clip tells us absolutely nothing other than a vote is coming, but does point out the various winners of previous editions, such as the Generations Combiner Wars Victorion / Rust Renegades team for 2015, the cityformer Titan class Trypticon for Titans Return in 2016, the upcoming Optimus Primal in Power of the Primes, which will be leader class and feature the evolution gimmick and a Primal Prime mode, for 2017 (ish, cut them some slack). Check out the teaser clip below, and speculate away in the Energon Pub!

We seem to have some news concerning the Takara Tomy Transformers Legends line, after the unification of the brand with same releases between the Japanese company and Hasbro - as detailed here - via a summary on the Snakas blog of hobby and action figure magazine Hyper Hobby, and the section concerning Transformers. Below is a machine translation of the post, but the highlight appears to be something regarding Takara Tomy Mall and Legends, leading to believe that we may still indeed see Japanese exclusive decos and minor retools - but only as exclusives.

Take a read for yourselves below, or head here for the original Japanese post, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

TF related to Hyper Hobby released today is 2 pages in color.

◆ Power of the Prime Japanese version Introduction of products from June to July.

Basically it looks like a new photo. The introductory text itself is not particularly novelty content, but regarding the PP series, it seems to be a policy to release all kinds with the worldwide common specification.

In relation to that, with regard to the future of the TF Legends of the current series, there is a description that "Takara Tomy Mall will be continued around the center".

By the way, with regard to the coalescing function of the dreaddwind and black wing, it was not mentioned here as well.

◆ Other, Introduction of 4 types of the first turbo change series, MP-34S Shadow Panther. Basically posted in advertisement materials.

There is nothing to do with Transformers, but articles about Shincarion 's toys are 3 pages in color, of which 1 page is an interview article on development staff of TakaraTomy. There is a description that development of Shinkallion toy went while consulting with the TF team.

We had covered a report of fans playing and testing the upcoming Transformers Studio Series Leader class Grimlock figure (which you can read for yourselves here), and now thanks to Weibo user 爆料人小明, it appears we may have a prototype of the very same, in the image mirrored below.

Take a look for yourself, let us know if you think this fits the mold (heh), and join the discussion in the Energon Pub. Are you excited for this new movieverse line? Are you expecting more news about it at Toy Fair 2018 later in February? Or is it something that holds no interest to you?

Fellow Seibertronian mordhelm has shared some pretty cool news with us. Toy distributor ACD Distribution has added two new listing to their site. Both are special edition Transformers deluxe Generations toys coming out in May, just in time for a possible 2018 edition of May Mayhem. One is for Blastoff, a toy we already knew was coming, and the other is none other than Repugnus.
With Titans Return already giving us a deluxe Twinferno and Grotusque, fans were really hoping for a deluxe Repugnus to finish the trio (at the same scale) and it seems Hasbro will deliver on that. With Blastoff having Power of the Primes packaging, odds are that if Repugnus does come out, it would be within this same Generations subline.

Below is all the available info on these two toys including the SKU and UPC numbers. The price is that of a wholesaler, so the retail price can be expected to be about double that.

TRAN: Gen Special Ed Dlx Blast Off (6)
SKU HSBE1796
Release Date 1/1/2018 PREORDER
Retail Price $9.99
Manufacturer HASBRO
Category TOYS
UPC 630509626977

TRAN: Gen Special Ed Dlx Repugnus (6)
SKU HSBE1797
Release Date 1/1/2018 PREORDER
Retail Price $9.99
Manufacturer HASBRO
Category TOYS
UPC 630509626991

Hopefully a modernized version of this image below will be possible come summer.

According to the Hobbymizer Hong Kong Facebook page, this year's Hong Kong Toy Fair (taking place all of this week, until Thursday 11th) will once more see a special reveal from Hasbro alongside a whole load of officially licensed Transformers merchandise and products.

You might remember that the 2017 edition brought us the official announcement and reveal of both Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee and Transformers: The Last Knight Shadow Spark Optimus Prime. It looks like this year may continue the movie trend with MPM-05 Barricade finally fully shown, plus a special 'secret' second figure to show up - which may very well be MPM-06(?) Ironhide, as previously reported here. The announcements should take place on Tuesday 9th during a press conference with Hasbro at 5 pm Hong Kong time (4am EST/ 1am PST) so stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the coverage!

Hobbymizer Teaser:

There will be a press conference tomorrow, in addition to known mpm05 roadblocks, there will be a very secret mpm06 global exhibition.

Our Hobbymizer team will be on the scene with you!

What exactly is the mpm06 going to be?
