Hasbro may not have shown up at the UK Toy Fair last weekend, but the EU section has its presence at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany - and with that come their press releases about upcoming products on the European market (which have already been seen elsewhere). So far, all we have seen relates to the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line - as you can read in German below, with a quick translation from yours truly - but we do have additional info on the recently reported Hyper Surge Optimus, here named Gigawatt Optimus Prime. Read on below for more info and images!

In sieben Transformationsschritten wird er vom coolen Truck zum Roboter. Zusammen mit dem enthaltenen Mini-Con entfaltet der Autobot dann seine ganzen Kräfte. Steckt man ihn an Optimus an, aktivieren sich Sound- und Lichteffekte. Dynamische Flugsounds bei Bewegung sowie adaptierbare Flügel und Laser-Kanonen komplettieren den Spielspaß des Gigawatt Optimus Prime.

Yeah, the Windblade legion toy is hot garbage. Huge disappointment, just like the character's depiction in the show.

Thats not entirely true either. If they really didnt care at all things would be way more different than they are now. There would be no nods to G1, and they wouldnt even bother getting the MPs stateside. And thats just one small part of it.

I dont see it. I am looking at the pic hard and aside from a few jokes I could make about how the kids are acting, I am not noticing anything nee about the toys aside from the decos. What am I missing here? What weapon?

In the mobile game for rid aside from Minicons that turn into Sawblades, Torpedos and Cyclones there is a 4th class of minicons called weapons that transform into weapons.


I see one of the molds from that game in the toy photo so that's what they are.


It's not Minicons holding weapons it's minicons that become weapons.

Look at the Slipstream on the right there. He has drill attachments on his back. and the mobile game said that we would be getting minicons who turn into weapons (and we've seen a few before) and slipstream was mentioned as a possible weapon minicon

He is the second one in from the right :BOT:
