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!”

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!

I have been more than pleasantly suprised by Earthrise Deluxe Arcee in many, many ways, this new Arcee figure is one of the most posable and well balanced figures in my entire collection, check out some of the pictures to see what I mean, it is truly amazing. Initial images of the figure were somewhat off-putting in regards to her backpack however in person it is not nearly as egregious and if you so choose, you can remove a portion of the backpack to serve as a hoverboard or as a shield unofficially. Removing the hoverboard portion eliminates the visual backpack issue all together although even with the full backpack, her posability and balance are not at all hindered. Arcee is a shellformer, one of the compromises of maintaining the slender form she had in the original series however it is not a deal breaker by any means. The hoverboard aspect adds a fun degree of play that children and some collectors are sure to enjoy, could this hoverboard feature be a nod to Daniel? or Marty? or maybe both~♂️
Arcee includes a small pistol reminiscent of the weapon that she used in the original film and animated series. The weapon can store in the small of her back and she can actually reach it which is an ability I love seeing in figures. Arcee in vehicle mode is just what you would expect, she looks very much like she did in the original series and rolls quite well, when transformered properly there are no clearance issues at all, overall no complaints with the alt mode.
When it comes to the different figures that she has recieved, I would say that the Earthrise Deluxe Class Arcee is superior to Titans Returns Arcee but when it comes to Takara Legends Arcee, it is really determined by your own personal preferences and figure availability, Takara Legends Arcee has a better transformation, more weapons, more paint however Earthrise Arcee is unmatched in posability, balance, and proprtions thanks to her shell forming nature. If you do not yet have an Arcee figure than this one will be perfect for you.
Overall, I really love the figure, without any regard to price point or budget, if there were any areas I would improve within reason, I would love a bit more paint on a few areas such as the face, the lips, the lower legs and torso. Wrist swivels would be amazing on this figure although with such a small frame, I can see how that could pose an issue.
So what do you think of the new Transformers Earthrise Deluxe Class Arcee? Is this a figure that you are thinking about adding to your collection?

Transformers Earthrise Deluxe Class Quintesson Allicon
Who would have imagined that after so many years, we would finally be getting an official Allicon figure! And depending upon your country, this figure was released and available around the time of the 34th anniversary of TFTM (August 8, 1986 US release date), which just adds to the awesome factor.
This figure is very well done, Hasbro Takara Tomy continues to put out great figures and it is great to see figures of characters that are lesser known or that have minor roles. The figure is very fun, highly articulated and has a lot of personality, the Allicon is a shorter Deluxe than say Deluxe Ironhide however this appears to be reflective of how they appeared in the film and following seasons of the original series. The Allicon figure while shorter, is just as massive as a typical Deluxe. Allicon and Ironhide are actually very close in mass(g) and you can definitely feel it when you handle Allicon as he is quite hefty.
You can notice a contrast between Deluxe Cliffjumper and Deluxe Allicon when paired side by side, the Allicon is taller, wider and much more massive however Cliffjumper is much more complex, has more paint, a higher level of engineering and a more complex transformation so while Allicon is bigger, Cliffjumper makes up for it in many other ways, it is amazing to see such variation even between figures of the same class. We have Judges, Allicons, Sharkticons, the Bailiff and Presecutor are coming, hopefully we also get the executioner and the other types of Quintessons at some point. A big thank you to everyone over at Hasbro Takara Tomy for such an amazing figure, please keep up the great work, we greatly appreciate it.
So what do you think of the new Quintesson Allicon figure? How many will you add to your collection? 5? 10? 30?
