Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast cast member/host Megatronus will take some quick pictures with his phone to share with all of you via the news staff. While he's doing that, I'll be taking pictures of the toys on my Sony a6500 camera.

Red Wing? Put on your tinfoil hats cuz I think this is a carry over mistake from another unrevealed figure: Hydra (with trademark friendly name)! If my hunch is right, we're getting buster and Hydra in Generations Selects to complete the Starscream combiner!

Dannshinigami wrote:Any confirmation on if Springer is a triple changer??
I was watching a YouTube video earlier and from what I saw it is a definite yes.
Jetfire has this cool thing where little handles come out of his underside and you can have up to four other bots holding on to him and his cockpit opens up and you can fit a little titan master inside it if you want. He even has this cool mechanism in his hand to where if you open it the weapon port disappears into it!
I was kind of hoping they would have revealed a little more(like Lancer or something) but what they showed off was cool. I love that the blast peaces that come with Omega and Jetfire are modular, that's such a fun touch. The whole line looks nice and chunky and robotic, I love the aesthetic of this line so much(and I'm not even a geewunner) I really don't understand the complaints this line has been getting, but too each there own.
I hope we get one more good Windblade figure in WFC before they stop making her, like the Titans Return one without a head master gimmic.
What do you guys think should come with ratchet if they make one? I'm hoping he gets a scalpel sword and a buzzsaw (it would be a neat little reference to the movies and prime).
That Beast Wars Megs is gorgeous... It kinda makes Dinobot look like sh*t.

Not what I mean. Usually they have prototypes for the next year out. This year, nothing. Everything is already at retail, or will be in the next couple of months. There was nothing new. Nothing upcoming for next year. It felt and looked very half assed.
Even with the 'Walmart leaks', we knew this stuff was coming before that, just hadn't seen it. We didn't get any brand new figures announced, in the past years, we have.

The presentation yesterday was basically the same as it has always been for the 13 years that I've been attending. If my recollection is correct, they've never shown prototypes for the following year that we can photograph. The only "prototype" exception I can think of is when they showed something for one of the Titan Class figures, but that was during the presentation part and not something we could photograph and share with all of you.
Toy Fair basically covers the current products that are currently available at retail, are just about to hit retail, and products that will be coming out between now and roughly July/August. SDCC basically covers products from June to December (with a few exceptions like they showed Chromia and Ironhide last year but they're still not at retail yet).
To sum it up, Toy Fair usually covers the first 6 months of the year and SDCC covers the last half of the year, with NYCC picking up the holdovers from SDCC.
It was also the first time that they had had Masterpiece displays for us to photograph, which they did just for the fans.
There was also a lot of Cyberverse product on display that we didn't even know about such as Gnaw and Alpha Trion.
It was definitely not half assed. The Transformers area had more products on display than ever before. 1.5 hours was not enough time to photograph and video everything. It's the 2nd or 3rd year in a row where I've had trouble photographing everything because it's too much product to photograph in that short amount of time.
The biggest thing that was different this year was how much product was revealed during the 2 weeks prior to Toy Fair. In addition to that, there was an obvious push to translate newly revealed products to buy-it-now opportunities, which is new and exciting.

Hasbro made another mistake in their official promotional images. Smashdown and Caliburst are not Micro Masters. They are Battle Masters. It's interesting to note that we haven't seen anything new of the actual Micro Master price point aside from Countdown, who comes with Omega Supreme.

Just found out when I preordered two SS DOTM Optimus figures.

It's amusing how really good Springer looks and how really godawful Impactor looks.
DotM Prime is my thing. I just finished having a go at painting up my SS32 Prime which is basically the same figure minus the trailer so will likely try painting that one up too when I get it.

I agree 100% and I think we should celebrate since we rarely agree on things. I am surprised though since Springer is very blocky. He wears it as well as anyone could of course but I thought you were against that kind of aesthetic.

SIEGE Springer is a thing of beauty! He makes the Thrilling 30/Generations/Legends version look like hot garbage, and that figure was fantastic!
