While we have yet to receive full confirmation on the new simplified line of Transformers toys' name, we do no it will be featuring the 'evergreen' (aka we're sticking to this for a while now) iconic designs of well, iconic characters such as Bumblebee, Megatron, Optimus Prime, Starscream and Grimlock, we do have some more images of the latter's stock photography, showing the Dinobot in both packaging, which obviously includes packaging art (but no name), and its robot mode, plus the stock Tyrannosaurus Rex mode.

The images can be seen below, and are mirrored from the regular Weibo account which has proven a source of plentiful images in the past year, tf-factory. Also included below are some renders with Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, that appear to be the art used in banners starting to appear in stores around the US and beyond, as reported here. Check out what may or may not be the Authentics line, and let us know what you think!

So you have to assemble Grimlock a bit but he's not a 'partsformer'? I still kinda like it in that Pretender Grimlock mini-figure sort of appeal. I mean it does what it sets out to do better than the PotP Grimlock I suppose... Just shame it lacks of moving jaw. Would have preferred it fixed open for roar/bite/fire than sculpted shut...

The mold itself doesn't look too bad but the Dino mode is in dire need of some paint.

It's no different than having to attach the alligator head to skullsmasher. Once the pieces are on you don't have to remove them again.

I don't mind them I suppose but it's odd how the Decepticons are so much more detailed. I do wish they'd be a bit more complex though. Not a fan of the decreased steps required for transformation. I understand it being geared towards a younger audience but I also happen to agree that kids should not be underestimated in their capacity to transform a more complex toy.

And trying to say because some of the movie line toys were too complex it's a good reason for decreased transformation steps or difficulty is not a true/accurate statement in my opinion. A bunch of those are tough little buggers. If I can transform movie masterpiece bumblebee(truth be told, not the hardest transformation but still requires some effort) without even looking at the directions or online,yet can't do that with half the normal movie line toys I've purchased thus far, there's an issue. I think some of them were over complex, had too much kibble, and were not intuitive.

He means proper ones that aren't a repaint of a figure that shares an alt mode. He loves his legion figures, and I can't blame him for wanting legion dinobots after the most recent Grimlock continues to be done from a rippersnapper

Still not giving us any kind of confirmation as to what the line is actually called, a fan has sent us notification of the allegedly named Transformers Authentics - featuring the 'evergreen' designs on the packaging - as spotted across a number of stores in the Philippines, as reported by vproject (though the images is by Franz Echeverria on Facebook) and maku098 of fellow Transformers fansite TFW2005.

The sightings show all four basic figures, with Decepticons Starscream and Megatron being accompanied by Autobots Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, from a Toys'R'Us store and Alabang's Toy Kingdom inside the Festival Supermall in Muntinlupa City. The price is the same, at 299.75 Philippine pesos (approx 6 USD) each, and you can check them out mirrored below - and make sure to use our Sightings database in case these or any other figures turn up near you!

So are these basically the same ones being sold in the US at Walgreens but in different packaging?

Same idea, but these are new figures. I'm sure we'll be seeing these at Walgreens, Dollar General, Big Lots and wherever else soon enough.

I hope this is a sign these won't be available only in market six stores.

Good question, they have the new "Authentic" logo on them, but I don't think we've seen anything boxed from this line. From what little we can see on the back of the box it looks like the non-transforming "Hero" figures (the "soap bottles").

Yeah I can see the Starscream one appealing to his fans but the other three just look really bad and blocky. I may still get Grimlock as a simple desktoy if I ever spot him.

We recently posted that the new simpler Transformers 4.5" figures, which use the evergreen designs, were found in the Philipines. Now, we finally have some in hand images of the Optimus Prime from this generic line, destined for the value market.

These images which TF fan Ikkad posted on the TFW boards are our first real look at the figure, including the paint applications and its scale compared to other figures. It seems to be between the scout and deluxe class in robot mode. Ikkad also gives his comments on the toy which you can read below.

[quote]They were all at my local department store today.

The price, just to reiterate, is in Philippine Peso (PHP).

It's a bad figure. The lack of elbows really restrict poseability, and the hollow legs prevent you from standing him up in most poses. The four step transformation is actually a bit interesting, as it differs from the Optimus standard. However, it results in the use of fake chest windows. The plastic is very cheap.

Here are some comparisons with the two other small Optimus molds. It's funny how the guy is taller than the T30 Legends.​

Overall, it feels like a cheapo KO toy, so I guess Hasbro has that market properly covered now.

I may go back and get Megatron, just to see what the Decepticons are like with their fancy elbows.[/quote]
