We thank Wireless_Phantom for letting us know of a post on Twitter from ARCTIC_ST0RM who posted a photo of two yellow Transformers using the Earthrise Cliffjumper mold. The one face up has the Hubcap headsculpt. There was a rumour for Hubcap (and Bumblebee) and this seems to be the it. This toy should end up being relreased thorugh the Generations selects line, which has been non exclusive for the most part (meaning several retailers sell these toys online). For those wondering who Hupcap is, this was a G1 toy that was also a yellow redeco of Cliffjumper with a new head (and no spoiler in the back). We included some images of Hubcap below if you want to see more of that odd and confusing G1 toy.

Now to settle the question of if the bot lying face down is hubcap, or bee himself. The head looks like it has tiny horns

Poor old Hubcap. Always the forgotten Minibot. Even Wheelie gets more love!

I'm not sure the head crest would look like that from behind.. But we'll find out in good time.

Well no, because he is the only one left of the G1 Minibots. Picked from the line last :(

I've finally complete Piranacon/King Poseidon. Sadly still can't ship it yet but oh well. The seafood special is finished at last!

Sure would be nice if these were stolen from factories by actual Transformers fans that know how to take good photos and not by people that are just trying to flip these for a quick buck from minimum effort. ;)

Last week, I finally shipped my last two Seacons from TFSource, along with a Legends Blue Big Convoy and an Earthrise Smashdown to get the free shipping.

After having finally opened all six of my Seacons both last night and night before last, I've now completed putting together my King Poseidon today. And boy is he a beast!

I managed to get him in a standing pose while holding all three of his main weapons: His combined sword, his combined gun, and Overbite in gun mode. With Overbite connected to his right fist, I put the sword in the same hand while his combined gun is held in his left hand.

This Selects combiner just feels so much more massive and heftier than most other CW/UW/Potpie-styled combiners that the higher price seems all the more warranted. So many accessories, so much bulk, this guy is CHUNKY!

The Legends comics might be pure fanfic-grade insanity but there is no denying that the Super/Ultra Megatron is definitely one of the dopest design out there and every time I see pics of it I'm reminded of this fact and how much of a good pick that mold was, once properly retooled. TR Galvatron was a cruelly underrated mold which got a lot of flak due to its poorly implemented headmaster integration and the flip out mask (especially as later TR offering showed a better helmet setup). That much is true. However I do think it has a certain super robot esthetic to it that Super Megatron help bring to the table and his nonsense power up and kibble variations are just icing on an already cool cake.

Sure he's not for everyone, especially if you're someone who dislike 'cybertronian' modes. But me? He hits all the right buttons and I suspect the only thing I will hate about him is that QC or mold degradation might cause some floppy legs. Or not, given the TR mold was only used for Galvatron previously.

Now Bumble Jumper is the poor forgotten minibot...
Although in Gen 2 they released Hubcap in Red instead of Cliff Jumper.

Bumper (aka "Bumblejumper") wasn't even acknowledged until the Dreamwave Comics... In the US that is. In Brazil, he was a confirmed release, so...

Ironically, I'll probably get Hubcap before I get Cliffjumper or Bumblebee since I'm pretty satisfied with the versions I already have.

Gotta say, all the pics of Super Megatron convinced me to preorder him. Still may change my mind, though. He does seem pretty sweet.

I didn't know where to direct this question but what from Transformers are expected from SDCC 2020? If it was already announced I clearly missed it. BBTS has been posting more SDCC items in the past days so I was curious. Sorry again if this as already announced! :HEADHURTS: :VEHI:

SDCC was canceled before any exclusives were announced, but we suspect that that grey ER "Sleep Mode" Optimus Prime was one of them.

If it truly was... pretty ironic if you think about it :-?

SDCC is continuing in a fashion of sorts, by inviting fans to go online during the previously scheduled dates as many panels will be streamed live online. Whether or not Hasbro plans to have a panel for this event is unknown at this time. I'm sure there will be some SDCC exclusive toys, but they also are TBD. The sleep mode Optimus is a good guess, but as for the rest, it hasn't been revealed yet.

So what do you guys think? Will we see any SDCC exclusive and will they be released online?

I thought leaks said we were supposed to get a GI Joe/Transformers set of some kind for SDCC, and Dead Prime was supposed to be an Amazon exclusive?
