Via Hasbro directly, and the part of their website that caters to media and investors, we have their new Corporate Social Responsibility report for the year 2018 - and along with all the various ways in which the company is pledging its commitments, we also have another look at some fairly small and low resolution renders of the Transformers Authentics character models for Bumblebee, Grimlock, Starscream and Megatron!

We've seen some of these already under the 'evergreen' nickname, but this is probably our best look yet, so check them out below. Also, head here to read more on the 113 page document from Hasbro, if that is up your alley.

If only Hasbro had designed PotP Starscream after this "Evergreen"/"Authentics" design instead. It would have been a smash hit, I'm certain.

A nice design for Starscream for sure, but I'm more curious about Megatron and Grimlock, since I fear that this line might be similar to the "Classic" one, and those two, well, s**ked a bit in that one.

After the renders we recently saw in our news cycle, we now have the official stock images again (first seen here) - and listings, though not actually in stock - on the US side of the market for the latest toyline from Hasbro: Transformers Authentics. Coming directly onto the HasbroToyShop website, and priced each at $4.99, Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, and Starscream can be seen though not ordered, and we get a better description of the figures.

Check them out below, look at our previous coverage of some of the figures here, and join the discussion!

Transformers Authentics figures feature popular Transformers characters at a 4.5-inch scale. Experience the excitement of Transformers conversion play with this Transformers Authentics Optimus Prime figure. It changes from robot mode to truck mode and back in just 4 easy steps. Choose a side and collect other Transformers Authentics figures to stage epic Autobot vs. Decepticon battles (each sold separately. Subject to availability).

Optimus Prime is the legendary leader of the Autobots known for his wisdom, courage, and strength on the battlefield. He fights to protect the freedom of all beings in the universe, ensuring his friends and allies are safe from evil Decepticons.

Bumblebee is a heroic Autobot scout who’s always ready to fight for the safety of his friends and fellow Autobots. He’s one of the most loyal bots out there, so his allies know they can count on Bumblebee to be there when they need him.


Image

Image

Image


Megatron is the evil leader of the Decepticons. He will do anything to increase his personal power and the strength of the bots on his side. Megatron is ruthless and serves no one but himself, and believes that one day he will rule the universe.

Starscream is the treacherous Decepticon second-in-command. He believes himself to be the only bot in the universe capable of leading the Decepticons to victory over the Autobots. Starscream is thus always looking to remove Megatron from his throne.

If I ever find them in the wild, I'd like at least Megatron. He look neat. ;)^

Bee and Optimus just look sad in both modes while Starscream transform like one of those matchbox car. Pathetic.

Technically they aren't listed on HTS yet, the links from those product pages are all bad.

At least they've finally confirmed that the line is in fact called "Transformers Authentics".

They call this like "Authentic" because they want to assure us those are official Transformers, not Dollar Store KOs. :lol:

Soon after the recent appearance of the Authentics 4.5" toys on HTS, finally confirming the name of this series, Hasbro now updates their online database to include two new additions to the line we were unaware of thus far. They are none other than Bumblebee and Optimus Prime but in a 7 inch scale. This 7" class also features Grimlock, and he can be found below as well along with their product descriptions which specify that Bumblebee and Optimus convert in 4 steps (that info is erroneously left out of Grimlock's description). Like the 4.5" toys, these are based on the Evergreen designs. While they are new toys, both Optimus and Bumblebee seem to be upscaled versions of those same toys with added articulation. You can see images of the 4.5" toys here for comparison to these 7" toys.

They gave Bee elbow joints but no proper hip joints? Prime looks no better than his smaller form did. I guess Grimlock looks okay, but man does he really need more paint!

Those 7" versions of Bee and Optimus are still ugly asfak, but just giving them elbows is a great improvements that make the toys worthwhile. And those are better than the RiD and Movie 3 steps. That Grimlock also look pretty boss. Ironically better looking than the horrid PotP version!

If I ever see one in the wild, I may pick one up. Then, I'll get some painting practice. :-?

Very silly question, but what team was responsible for the design of these toys?

I thought you really liked that RID 3 Step Grimlock.

i am questioning the designer's decision to make optimus and bumblebee's elbow joint bend inside like a gorilla, when they are totally able to give a normal elbow bend on grimlock

For relative sizing purposes:

4.5" / 11.4 cm: between Legends & Deluxe Class
7" / 17.8 cm: Voyager Class

(used figures on hand)

... and the latter coming carded works against it when it comes to legitimacy at first sight. Generally speaking, figures of that size are usually boxed; KO's on the other hand are a different story. Not saying they're KO's, just that people will think that they are... at least of similar quality.
