Much like her larger Dino brother from another mother and the movie Transformer who started all the chaos before her, we have a new 'Leaked From Cybertron' clip showing the evolution of the little dino who could: Slash!

What we get to see here is the evolution of Slash, who is making her breakthrough into the generations line with her wave 1 toy, a figure that while small has been well received as the new sixth member of the Power of the Primes Dinobot lineup. The roadmap shows her going from sketch art to a prototype to her final figure, with some pretty nice artwork showing her with a pair of small knives/swords. The Facebook original can be found HERE

Check out the embedded video below, and let us know what you think of this newest evolution video below!

No. There wont be a break. Generations will still come out every three months or so as it always has in the past 4 years.
Cyberverse will be just another line like RID was.


So you think WFC will be released early?

Yeah I agree. Among all the Generations combiner toys I'd say Abominus is not only the best looking but also the most stable, in large part because Sinnertwin and Cutthroat's Prime Armors can attach to Hun-Gurrr's accessories (the front of the gestalt's feet). His hands and feet don't easily fall off and Hun-Gurrr's transformation into the torso is ingenious, like we've never seen before.

I'm also glad that the decals on Hun-Gurrr which a lot of us had been dreading beforehand turned out to be well executed, having a reflectorized glow which might not have been achieved with tampographs.

Wherefore, in my opinion, this is a Generations gestalt that does not need any third-party upgrades. I even came to appreciate the white helmet that's not cartoon-accurate as it serves as a contrast to Computron's brown head when they're facing each other upclose. ;)^

No, what he is saying is that releases are going to the normal schedule Hasbro adheres to in terms of wave releases:

Launch dates
PotP:
Wave 1: Dec 2017/Jan 2018
Wave 2: Mar/Apr 2018
Wave 3: Jun/Jul 2018
Wave 4: Sep/Oct 2018

WfC:
Wave 1: Dec 2018/Jan 2019

Exactly! Some fans seem to have the memory of a goldfish sometimes. I swear this comes up every year. We had that last year too with people not believing that Titans Return would end so early with only 1 deluxe in the final wave. But it did, and then we got POTP. Same thing will happen again.

I think what is throwing some people is how early (late Novebmer) PotP wave 1 showed up in the US. But I think that had more to do with whatever distribution problems Hasbro had with TR waves 5 and 6.

I think what is throwing some people is how early (late Novebmer) PotP wave 1 showed up in the US. But I think that had more to do with whatever distribution problems Hasbro had with TR waves 5 and 6.


Additionally PotP is the first of the new shorter brands (1 year) as opposed to CW which was a full 18 months/6 waves, and TR which also was almost 18 months, and had its 6th wave sadly cut short (Yes I know all we ever saw was a Slugslinger, however I think the idea to start annual rebranding was quite a while ago, Hasbro just didn't make it public until last year. The majority of the fan community was positive we'd see more TR revealed at SDCC in 2017, instead they showed PotP...) . T30 was a full 2 years almost, and had what...8 or 9 waves?

Having a 12 months cycle, shorter series, is going to take some getting used to, especially for some of us old fogies who don't like change ;) .

I wish he didn't have the same arms in both modes. Looks a little lazy. The original Optimal Optimus had some difference in the arms at least.

The more I look at Primal, the less interested I am. I think I’ll just get the original to satisfy my Optimal Optimus needs.

It doesn't look like his guns will flip over his shoulder either, that's disappointing. I hope there are at least peg holes for it, cause those two guns combined into one in this case looks awful. It really feels like they didn't try

We've already seen the guns can point forward:

Also he looks really cool to me. I mean in what I expected the line gimmick to offer, and how the toys ae being made now, It's pretty good option.

At least its much better than the last time we got a new figure of that design.

That one didn't even get a correct monkey mode.

...what?

Yes he did. You just rotated the elbows and flipped the thumbs. It’s the exact same gimmick In both toys. What are you on?

I've tried, but I can't think of even one thing I don't like about that Optimal Optimus figure. Seriously, I can't wait to have this guy in my collection.

There was a difference actually, the panels that cover the forearms in the original version, came off and attached to the shoulders for Robot Mode. It looks like they might be able to do that in this new toy based on the peg holes in the shoulders.

The arms do change from one mode to the next since the forearms guards in gorilla mode end up being repositioned as major shoulder pylons in robot mode.
