Deluxe Blurr: the bot that can speak a hundred words a minute! He seems by far the most TFTM G1 cartoon accurate head sculpt ever done. The vehicle mode also has a cockpit more open as seen in the cartoon. His figure backdrop is the Autobot City, as it comes under attack by the Decepticons.
#Transformers #StudioSeries86 Voyager Hot Rod - Official Product Photography
The figure is not significantly larger than the other Deluxes. @Hasbro said that they're keeping him to scale but he needed to be a Voyager, so the toy could include all those amazing accessories! In addition to spot-on accuracy (other that he's not pink! ;) it includes The Matrix, The Light of the Matrix and vehicle exhaust/weapons blast effects. Hands swap out to form w/ Spark welder mode that he uses to rebuild Kup, and circular saw blade he uses to cut himself free from the robotic squid on Quintessa!
#Transformers #StudioSeries86 Scourge - Official Product Photography Including Packaging
As if I need another reason to wish 2020 was over! Coming early 2021 - Haslab Unicron and a whole slew of this gorgeousness. I definitely need a half a dozen of these things. But might want to be careful, and hold off before I get 6 of this exact toy. Seems quite possible that Hasbro could release different versions of it and I'll definitely want every version produced. Stay tuned!
#Transformers #StudioSeries86 Leader Grimlock - Official Product Photography
These images provide our best look yet at the figure in actual plastic - no 3D models... How mind-blowing cool is it to see #TransformersTheMovie characters in modern day form and packaging?! I'm not over crazy for that non-transforming Wheelie, but it should be easy enough to substitute out for the Titan's Return version. Also, the promise of additional Leader Class Dinobots makes me feel all tingly inside! :)

Thrust and Runabout - #Transformers Target Exclusives Coming Late 2020
Thrust: Seeker Elite Trio to be completed w/ Thrust. Let him get run over by Optimus Prime! Includes his uniquely tooled wings.
Runabout: Amanda helps with some sweet backstory for the Battlecharger twins. Runamuck and Runabout were on a mission to infiltrate the Ark. But they were separated. Runabout was left behind and Runamuck stowed away in the cargo hold...
Both expected to be available December 2020.

#Transformers Galactic Odyssey Collection pt2: Micromasters 6-Pack - Revealed from Today's by @Hasbro
Transformers Team member/writer Amanda shared the following:
Inspired by a series of top secret side missions and encounters, during the events of #WarForCybertron #Earthrise. The second encounter of the Galactic Odyssey features a stop at the "Planet Micron." Inside the packaging you’ll see a map of their travels. In the pack, Micron planet card with cool stories included. As Autobots and Decepticons travel through space, fuel is scarce on the Ark. The story picks up as they discover signs of an extremely powerful but dangerous form of energy - Plasma (G1 fans may recognize this from The Rebirth?!)
The set includes:
Windstorm, Fireguard and Roadburner (Duocons) are deployed to Micron to investigate that energy. On their trail are three Decepticons: Stingracer, Runner (aka Barricade) and Motorhead seeking to take the Energon for themselves. Full story, apparently contained within the packaging. This allows us to complete the Decepticon Race Track Patrol.

These figures are based on the Japanese Headmasters cartoon series, with small but significant retools as compared with the Titans Return release. They come with G1 1987 inspired packaging and will be Walmart Exclusives.

#Transformers Fan First Friday Summary - #StudioSeries Reveals Includes 1986 #TransformersTheMovie Classics
Every figure in this sep is called "Studio Series 86" after the year of TFTM release, w/ a suffix numbering for each character after it. Of course we at unicron.com could not be more excited! This focus on G1 (1986) Transformers The Movie will coincide with HASLAB Unicron release early next year and the 35 year anniversary of the film!
Part 1: The panel presenters consisted of
Rachael: Transformers Team Marketing. She does not have a toy collection of her own, but we won't hold that against her! She has upgraded her home internet, for more online reveals!
"It's like a dream come true! Playing with toys you wish you had as a kid; and now you're making them!"
Designer on the Studio Series line, and a "huge fan of the 1986 Transformers Movie." On his shelf collection we see MP Star Saber, Lio Convoy ... a number of Siege Generations toys and other MPs
Amanda: Brand writer, names, background copy and a huge fan herself! In the background she has Cyberverse Arcee, MP Blackarachnia,
14 Reveals Today, Starting with ...
Wave 1 Deluxe: Jazz: He transforms into his iconic "sports car" of course they can't and probably shouldn't say Porsche 935 Turbo. Rightfully so, because these toys are based on Floro Dere cel animation models, moreso than an actual car.
"Some of you who are fans of the original, know that Jazz had some affiliation with the number 14."
Editor's note: I don't know of any connection between Jazz and the #14. I hit the wiki, google... nothing. Anyone else out there know of a connection? I was going to guess it was the Takara toy reference number, but according to the tfwiki, it's 06.
The silhouette! Oh yeah! If there's one thing that matters to me in terms of esthetics of modeling a toy after a cartoon, it's getting this right (!) and they seem to have nailed it!
Voyager Wave 1 Hot Rod:
Hot Rod: not much larger than the Deluxes, they're keeping him to scale. They wanted him at this pricepoint, so they could load him up with accessories such as the Matrix, The Light of the Matrix and vehicle exhaust/weapons blast effects. Hands swap out to form w/ Spark welder mode, and squid circular saw blade that he uses to rebuild Kup
Deluxe Kup: everybody's favorite crotchety old bot with a story for every occasion! He comes with an "energon goodies" dispensor and his limbs come off. What's cool here is that the attachment connectors are 5mm ports, so you could utilize the (Generations WFC) Weaponizers to "have some fun!"
Deluxe Blurr: the bot that can speak a hundret words a minute! He has by far the most TFTM G1 cartoon accurate head sculpt ever done. The vehicle mode also has a cockpit more open as seen in the cartoon. His figure backdrop is the Autobot City, as it comes under attack by the Decepticons.
Voyager Scourge "The Tracker"
Love that the Transformers design team refers to this toy as Scourge "The Tracker" using their best Orson Welles imitation voice! Rachel's favorite feature (quite possibly and mine!) this Voyager toy includes his very threatening, super iconic, pink fingernails! In gorgeous, larger Voyager form. Note that Evan, when referencing his Studio Series packaging backdrop, correctly states it's from when Scourge is reformatted (by Unicron) ***from Thundercracker!***
Anyone here like Datsuns? The Siege molds and ER molds are both different flavors of great. The ER Smokescreen is great all around, zero complaints at all, amazing in both modes, great articulation, great transformation, nice accessories, nice likeness to the original 1984 cartoon character, Hasbro Takara Tomy have been hitting it out of the park. I really appreciate all the hard work of everyone involved in bringing these amazing figures to life, they have evolved to a point where they are akin to mini Masterpiece figures at retail price.
Check out these official reveals! Wow, that has to be one of the best regular retail versions on Hot Rod to date and Jazz also looks amazing, far superior to POTP Jazz. What do you all think of these two reveals?
Check out these amazing new stock photos of the highly anticipated Masterpiece Starscream V2.0 MP-52, and pre-order from our sponsor The Chosen Prime using the link above today!
#BeastWars (on-going) Comic Series to Launch in 2021 - Celebrating its 25th Anniversary
Hard to imagine that this prominent chapter in the #Transformers history kicked off 25 years ago. WOW that makes me feel old! 2021 will be a great year for fans of the series between this new comic launch and their prominent feature in Kingdom toys and War For Cybertron on #Netflix.
“IDW Publishing has announced plans to celebrate next year’s 25th anniversary of Transformers: Beast Wars — the 1990s reinvention of the classic franchise — with an all-new comic book series launching in early 2021.
The new series will be written by Erik Burnham (Transformers/Ghostbusters) with longtime Transformers artist Josh Burcham on board to illustrate. The two will reintroduce the future tribes of Cybertron — the heroic Maximals and villainous Predacons — and mix familiar faces with new characters as Optimus Primal, Rattrap, and friends set out to stop the Predacons from using a stolen time machine.
“Beast Wars is a beloved part of the Transformers legacy,” editor David Mariotte said in a statement. “That’s why we couldn’t pass up launching a new series in tandem with the 25th anniversary! Erik and Josh are going to take everything that’s beloved about Beast Wars — the characterization, the drama, the jokes — and start fresh with a series that will feel at home for fans of 25 years and first-timers alike.”
The series will launch in February, with a first issue featuring covers by Burcham, Pico Ossio, Dan Schoening, and Nick Brokenshire. Below, Burcham and Brokenshire’s covers for that issue, as well as Winston Chan’s cover for the second issue.”
