While the initial toys from the Authentics line have proven to be lack luster, fans still admit the evergreen designs they are emulating are great. So, for all the fans wishing we had more standard Transformers toys based on these designs, we may have some pretty cool news for you. Weibo user TF Factory posted packaging mock ups for what appears to be a deluxe and voyager class box. These boxes feature Emiliano Santalucia's evergreen Bumblebee design on them, the same image found on the packaging art of the simpler Bumblebee figures. Since we know that there will already be voyager sized simpler figures and that they come in a very different carded packaging, these boxes are definitely for something else, and hopefully that is for figures of more standard complexity.

Let us know if you are pleased by the possibility of getting these designs on other figures and if you feel a voyager Bumblebee makes sense.

I ususpect that these are actually one of several possible things:

- Existing TFs rebranded under this new line.
- Something obscene, that a kindly mod has edited, to stop a flame-war
- A actual pink, smear of paint, sold as part of the most budget of budget lines, for the developing market.

They're more Generations-style I suspect, with the 8+ Age instead of 6+ for any other line.

As one who doesn't care (but not hate) that much about Bumblebee I wouldn't mind a decent articulated figure of that design, it's the only one out of the Evergreen designs we have seen up close that is a more original design.

You know what this packaging reminds me of AoE. I don't know if that is a good or a bad thing . Oh well :HEADHURTS:

Well, yeah, that's the same new packaging look that Hasbro's been using for all of its main lines since AOE. It's to create brand consistency with all of main Hasbro Transformers lines (except for Rescue Bots since that's instead under Playskool's label).

I have high hopes for this. Maybe they will make voyagers of all the “evergreen” cast - could make up for Starscream and Grimlock’s lackluster PotP releases. :-D Deluxe Bumblebee may have potential too. With this latest leak I really don’t see cyberverse actually having toys. What we’ve seen so far lines up perfectly with these designs, but I may have missed some leaks along the way. Assuming there isn’t something else, we have Authentics Bravo to replace one steps and the like and this stuff (authentics alpha?) to replace warriors and hyper change. Granted Bravo seems aimed at “market six” stores, but some “kids don’t care that it’s bad” figures wound up there anyway. Seems like a huge improvement over RiD if this is the case.

Toy Fair is only two weeks away, I'm sure we'll have some of our reveals then. Just don't be disappointed if we don't get a Voyager Bumblebee, these are just mock ups after all.

You'll remember how it was revealed that there are larger, 7 inch Transformers Authentics toy than the 4.5" initially seen, also featuring new designs that hark back to the evergreen, iconic shapes and sizes of classic characters such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream, Megatron, Grimlock and Soundwave. Thanks to the Snakas blog, we actually have in hand images and a sighting, coming to us by way of the Philippines (where they are on sale at Toy Kingdom for 599.75 Pesos / 11 USD at the time of writing ) for the two Autobots and the Dinobot!

Grimlock also comes with some posed imagery and shots of both modes, while the other two are in package and on-shelf, and some comparisons with the smaller class size Megatron, too - but check them all out below.

If those are the larger versions, that Grimlock looks identical to the smaller one. Are they just official OSKOs of the smaller versions?

There is no smaller Authentics Grimlock, but Prime and Bee are just OSKOs

Is there a smaller one? I thought Grimlock was only available as a larger figure? The small figures we've seen are Optimus, Bee, Starscream, and Megatron while the large figures are Optimus, Bee, and Grimlock. Am I mistaken?

That Grimlock actually doesn't look bad. I just don't like the head design in robot mode, or beast mode.

No, it's just confusing. I always thought that the figures posted just now were always that size. However, the post here and at TFW2005 suggests that smaller versions are available and that they've been compared to each other?

Has a mistake been made and was it by me?

Not naming the size classes is a good way of dropping the ball. There are as of now two Size Classes for Authentics: 4.5" (compare to RiD Mini-Con Battle Pack Bumblebee), and 7" (compare to Voyager Class). The lineup:

4.5"
Optimus Prime
Bumblebee
Starscream
Megatron

7"
Optimus Prime
Bumblebee
Grimlock

Ahh, so there's no mini Grimlock. For a moment before there, I rather hoped that there was going to finally be a decent, Voyager sized Grimlock made by Hasbro.

Silly me...

We did see those box mock ups for "Deluxe" and "Voyager" (or whatever they will call them) so there is a chance that we'll get one, but probably not while PotP Grimlock is still on shelves.

The worst part? Optimus Prime and Bumblebee look so similar in both classes, but the smaller ones have no elbows. That's the only way to tell them apart on images.

Dang more figures that will flood the shelves, because no-one will buy them.

If they do the Megatron in 7" I may have to get it.
