Other than that it's just a relationship and you probably assume rewind is childlike because of his height but that's it.


I guess it's kinda a "beholder's interpretation" thing.

Btw...

Is that Va'al in the background?

I am wondering, was it supposed to be a gay sort of relationship between Chromedome and Eject in the MTMTE comics, or more of a protective relationship? Eject and Tailgate seem to be more child-like, so it would seem weird for Chromedome and Cyclonus to have that kind of relationship with them.

Actually, Rewind is one of the oldest living Transformers. Tailgate, while young, is even older than Rewind. He was just in a coma for millions of years. Neither is a child. Also, human terms of gay and straight hardly apply to mechanical beings. Rewind and Domey are in a loving relationship. Labels need not be applied.

I already got this answer from someone else. My burning question right now is whether or not this is Va'al in the background or not!!! :shock:

;) And yes, I am joking about not caring about your answer.

Its planned to come out within the next 4 months, its not clear beyond that precisely when. Takara's version comes out in August.

The first 2 waves (and probably only waves) that are coming out this year are all the toys you see on display there. The first wave will have rewind, stripes, Blaster, Galvatron, Sentinel Prime, Blur, Scourge, Hardhead and Skullcruncher.

Either way, the crocodile mode is looking even better from this angle; there's just so much personality in it and I'm liking that posability. I display most my guys in robot mode but screw it, crocodile dude with a pilot in his mouth. Need him. Need.


I dont mean to be a downer, but they changed the piloting seat from his mouth to his back for this toy. But hey, the G1 toy will always exist :D (I have him and he is my favourite headmaster too)

It's a romantic relationship, yes. And the majority are male anyways. But robots dont have sex, so is it still gay? You decide. Oh and Tailgate and Cyclonus are also in that kind of relationship (and possibly so was Prowl with Tarantulus, though that isnt for sure as the other two).

Seibertron has delivered a huge gallery of what has been found on Botcon's 2016 show floor for the Transformers Generations toyline. What is extra cool is that by having access to the back of the cards/boxes, we get our first look at yet to be revealed figures. While the full reveal will be given tomorrow, we do have our first look at Deluxes Wirewolf (Wierdwolf) and Highbrow.

Those same backing cards also had images of two new heads, Apeface and Clobber, the later of which looks a lot like Grimlock.

As another small bonus, we have our first look at Voyager Alpha Trion's sword since Power Master Optimus is wielding it in the display case.

Lastly, we have a confirmation of the price range for deluxes. An early rumour was that these would be bigger, more detailed and more expensive, but every price found on the show floor indicates no price increase for these toys.

Hopefully, this will tide you over until the big presentation tomorrow that will fully unveil these new toys.

On TFsource is says August 2016 instead of 2017. Of course that is a mistake, but what if the whole date is wrong?

??? Why would it say 2017, these toys are coming out this year. You sure you ddint inverse the numbers. And just to make sure you know, we are in the year 2016.

Wait, sorry I mixed something up in my head. Never mind. August in my head for some reason registered as "March". I am tired and sick. Don't judge me! :-s

Btw, is anyone here planning on waiting for the Takara version of Blurr before getting this figure? :-?

For all we know, Takara might come out before. I don need to wait, I can judge that Takara's looks amazing and will be getting that one instead.

Chromedome looks to me like a retool of CW Smokescreen but with a headmaster/powermaster/removable head bot thing whatever they call them now.

Can anyone confirm?

Yes he is; TT used him as the basis for demonstrating headmasters to the suits at hasbro, or something like that
