    Dropkick Before #BumblebeeMovie!

    Before he became a big triple changing movie star, Dropkick was a featured new character in #Transformers (movie 1) video game by Activision. The design was then used by Hasbro immortalized as a toy that same year.

    We get our first look at the original character concept art by Ken Christiansen, via his Facebook page: The Art of Ken Christiansen
    Where the artist states:

    “The second character I designed for the game, which turned out to be another toy! Swipe for concept art, initial concept sketch, and shots of the figure. It was originally meant to be just a gray truck, but as Hasbro worked on the figure, they came up with the Decepticon symbol graphic, and asked us to add it to the in game character. Happily, because it looked awesome.

    MPM-08/09 TF1 Megatron & Jazz

    “You want a piece of me?!” - Weibo user @NOTRAB who seems to have some inside info (he’s been correct about such things before!) states that the next two Masterpiece Movie figures will be unveiled in China later this month.

    IF this proves to be true, we certainly expect to learn more in a few weeks at ToyFair 2019. Stay tuned!

    Siege Optimus: Cybertronian Hovercar Alt Mode - & other thoughts on the latest Prime

    Let’s put ourselves in the place of Hasbro/Takara designers. Remember that if we’re using 1984 as our reference, we see Optimus Prime in robot mode on Cybertron, before the Autobots fateful journey to Earth. From that first episode, the animation suggests that the robot mode of characters looked identical before as after they scanned Earth based vehicles. However, we never actually saw his Cybertronian alt mode. So, I pose this question to the fandom: What would you like his pre-Earth vehicle to look like, ideally?

    Would it have wheels or be a more space-age hover-truck? In this regard, I believe the engineers who made the toy wanted it it both ways. This truck mode can do both!

    Part of me wanted the truck to look either more rounded, or have more Cybertronian components hanging off of it - like a crazy spoiler or some-such. But I think that would only detract from what makes his Cybertronian vehicle still look classic. The more I look at the final result, the more I think that if I had been responsible for these design decisions, the final result would be very similar to what we wound up getting.

    All things considered, I find myself really happy with this latest version of Optimus. Designers were successful in doing what they set out to do: His robot mode is spectacularly authentic G1. He’s super poseable and equally important, he has the near perfect silhouette of a masterpiece Optimus Prime.

    I also need to talk about the feel of this toy. Nothing feels hollow. It’s SOLID, in a way that Transformers haven’t been in the main line - unless you pay super premium costs for a Masterpiece. Plus, the transformation hits the perfect *just-right* sweet spot, being neither too complex nor too simplistic. Bravo Hasbro. Well done.

    At the same time that his alt mode maintains many classic esthetic elements, it feels like something *new, which we haven’t seen before. Considering how many Optimus toys there have been over the years, is really saying something!

    #TransformersTCG 2019 Wave 2

    “Predaking is just one of six sets of combiners featured in the “Rise of the Combiners” expansion pack, available on March 1....

    The combiner mechanic depends on special cards called “Enigmas.” A player must have all five of the combiner robots in bot form in their battlefield or KO area. When the conditions are met, the enigma card can be activated, fusing the five into one. To keep things fair, any damage the individual units incur during the game is carried over into the combined form...”

    CORRECTION! MP-44+ Optimus Prime - **Digibash**

    This fan made beautiful digital creation is the work of Christopher McClure (nice work!) but makes for a great “What If?!” conversation! Because it’s probably not far from reality. This high end mold goes out of its way, sculpted and designed from every angle, to look as close to exactly like his cartoon appearances. It would not surprise us if Takara released a “+” designation to denote a deco to look like the original toy. If it came to be, would this toy interest you?
