Fellow Transformers fan and Seibertron.com member fenrir72 has spotted a tweet by Toys'R'Us, revealing another characteristic for the upcoming fan-built combiner Victorion (as revealed here). We already knew she'd be facing off Galvatronus (of whom you can find our gallery here) and his mind-bending powers - but it looks like the six-member team will be able to control gravity! Check out the teaser image below.

Would "Quakebreak" have not been better suited to have the earthquake power instead of the gravity power?

And the teleport power would have people accuse her of knocking off Skywarp.

So what are the chances of the figure being revealed at either botcon or SDCC? I know we're getting a look at her in the comics soon but what about the actual toy?

Probably, but you can still make the point of her using gravity and kinetic energyotoo make objects fall to earth, and the cause an earth quake like impact.

I hope that's the case, I'm really anxious to see what this thing looks like.

Well its the only really unique power that hasn't really been used in Transformers before.



By an individual I don't mean not used at all.



Glad it got in since I voted for that power.

As for signature powers aligning with a figures other attributes, was gravity control being the winning option before we've even glimpsed the anticipated female gestalt a conscious attempt to make fandom produce as many breast-weapon jokes as possible? 'Cause when I think of female combiner-bots that defy gravity, Volspina immediately springs to mind.

Even allowing that her ranged weapons were a component-mecha's elbows, the configuration doesn't seem structurally sound without some anti-grav engines.

Granted, it probably was the best option of those 3, since there are multiple TFs with iconic earthquake powers.

Design them to be interesting characters with different design concepts first who just happen to female.


Quoted for truth.

Of course, that only works if the designs have accompanying appearances in works of fiction like comics or tv shows. Otherwise, if you're just presented with an androgynous TF toy with a feminine name, it's basically, "It's a girl bot; use your imagination."

Because honestly, if a female TF doesn't look "typically" female, the only thing that defines her gender would either be her voice, behavior or personality. Take the those away, and all you're left with is a female bot in name only.

From TRU twitter feed

Victorion's power will be "gravity" based. And her main rival would be Galvatronous (?)
We knew about the rival, but now the superpower vote has been revealed.

Gravity Control powers, it is!


I put a question mark because, well those tweets are just as accurate as the next "leaked" info. :lol:

Art style reminds me of Masami Obari's muscled/voluptous look. Is getting hot around here.

Did some googling, and it seemsto be from a rather fanservice heavy anime called Godannar.
