Reveal/Review: Studio Series ‘86 Deluxe Kup #Transformers
“Old timer? That’s something you’ll never be if you don’t get back to the city!”
This modern toy is based on the classics character and his most famous appearances in the 1986 classic #TransformersTheMovie (TFTM). We get our first look at the figure by way of another video review by TonTon. https://bit.ly/3mIy979 Images from the video mirrored here if you’re like me and don’t want to watch someone transform a toy you don’t have yet!
This toy comes complete with detachable limbs as occurred in TFTM the crash on Quintesson, his trusty laser musket, and even a little box of Energon goodies! I expect more info to come this weekend’s #HasbroPulseCon. Stay tuned!
#Transformers War For Cybertron Kingdom Fossilizer! ... Paleotrex, terrorize!”
Weaponizers debuted in Siege as the separable component armor partners to Titans: Cog from Fort Max, Brunt from Trypticon, etc... In Earthrise they transform into Micromasters bases. In Kingdom, they’re dinosaur bones! This concept was an original prototype idea that never made it to market in Beast Wars. This original character, with his fossilized skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex beast mode, is a Predacon!
First Look-Reveal! Studio Series ‘86 Hot Rod! #Transformers
YES PLEASE! From what we can tell in the video, the figure appears packed w/ 1986 movie accurate accessories like the saw blade, wrist welder, Matrix of Leadership, a light your darkest hour blast effect and light shielding visor, even includes a transformation mechanism similar to what’s seen in the #TransformersTheMovie. More please!
We’ve seen it featured prominently in the #Netflix series, the War For Cybertron toy packaging and persistent rumors of the next Titan Class figure could be the Ark. Accordingly we wanted to take a look back at some of the other toys and depictions of the Autobot’s iconic ship. We’ve had a 3” Titanium, a (2011 Dark of the Moon) Cyberverse ship/play-set based on its appearance in the film, an Ark that splits apart to become (2020) Cyberverse Optimus Prime’s armor and even a huge cardboard pop-up diorama. In Transformers Animated, the Ark transformed into Omega Supreme - though we never got a toy. ~
Honestly, I really hope this rumor turns out to be true, because none of these predecessor toys are quite I’ve wanted. Personally, I wouldn’t mind if transformed into a play-set/base (only) but I think having a full on robot form could be epic! What I care about more than anything though, is that the ship mode is huge and G1 accurate. Given the recently released Ark schematic on the HasbroPulse social feed, I’m optimistic that’s exactly what could be coming in toy form.
It’s possible that we may get something of a partial reveal at next weekend’s virtual Hasbro PulseCon. Stay tuned! Images have been archived and available in their usual spots, via site & app:

REVEAL: @Hasbro Commemorates #Transformers Prime 10-Year Anniversary with War Breakdown and Jet Vehicon Generations Selects 2-Pack
Exciting news, as these two were both featured fairly prominently in the animated series and were previously only available in via Takaratomy in Japan via the “Arms Microns” line. Now if only they’d named the Vehicon “Steve!”
Sky Lynx Concept Art by Ken Christiansen #Transformers
The freelance artist shares his beautiful work used in delevopment of the new Commander Class, War For Cybertron Earthrise figure. I’m curious hear other fan’s thoughts, now that the toy is out. This interpretation is a little more meched out and a bit more colorful than the final result. Would you have preferred the new toy to be a slightly new interpretation like this? Or is your preference what we got: a rendition as close to G1 authentic cartoon as possible?
Regardless, both the concept art and the toy are the bomb!
