#Transformers - #HasbroPulse Updates with Bio & Info on the Newest Combiner/Team: Orthia & the Shield of Solus
“POWER: Forge powerful weapons when team is combined
"In the darkest days, I am the light."
All know of the great and powerful Primes, the god-like bots who shaped the Transformers universe. And all know of the one called Solus Prime and how she forged the mystical weapons and artifacts the Primes used to battle elemental forces of evil. Those legendary weapons and artifacts remain among the most powerful objects in the universe. But known to only a few is her most potent creation: a fierce team of heroes, formed in her spirit to carry on her legend...
At the apex of creation, Solus Prime planted the seeds of a shared destiny within the sparks of five brave warriors. These protectors, united by common cause and uncommon courage, together form the last line of defense, a chosen few to be summoned in Cybertron’s greatest hours of need. They are the constant guardians. The unyielding defenders. They are the Shield of Solus.
L ed by Elita-1, this select team is made up of Moonracer, Novastar, Greenlight, and Lancer. They have a great power hidden within them that can only be unlocked when their unique sparks come together within a Combiner form.
When Cybertron faces its darkest days, Elita-1 and her team must combine together to meet their destiny and form…Orthia. The combination of their unique sparks infuses Orthia with the creation power of Solus Prime. This power gives Orthia the ability to forge immensely powerful weapons to be used against the planet's greatest threats.
Orthia stands up and fights when all seems lost. Her resolve has been forged in the fires of battle. Her legend steeled by the selflessness of sacrifice. It is in times of greatest despair that her greatest victories are won. She is light, she is hope, she is Orthia -- the fiercest guardian of Cybertron.
The final two members of the upcoming online exclusive Generations Selects Seacons Overbite & Tentakil are now available for pre-order from our sponsor TFsouce. Reserve yours today, as even pre-orders are selling out at many other online retailers!
I don’t have quite as much to say about Crosshairs as I did the others toys from @Hasbro’s Unboxing Event at #NYCC. (Thanks again for the #FreeSample!) He is a beautiful retool of the Ironhide and happy to finally be getting a much needed new iteration of the original Autobot Targetmaster. His news head sculpt, a perfect recreation or the original, looks great. I think his robot mode is perfect to recolor as this character. His vehicle mode - not as much, would’ve preferred the ATV of Hound but then his robot mode would’ve looked off. So I suppose this is the best selection available for him to make a comeback.
...and even Chris Evans loves it!

SPINISTER! #Transformers War for Cybertron Siege w5 Deluxe
He’s always been considered something of a loser among Decepticons. Whether it’s finding himself amongst the “Scavengers” a ragtag group of misfit Decepticons in MTMTE... In the real world, he and Wheeljack somehow lost the fan vote to Impactor and Mirage. He even seems to have pissed off Skywarp, borrowing his Battle(Target)masters for the photo gallery! But he plays a mean game of “Shoot, shoot, Bang, Bang!” (just ask Misfire! ~) and despite being runner up in the fan vote, he apparently still got enough love to warrant an entirely new mold in the line anyway! Tell you what, I’m glad he did!
Spinister has always had a special place in my heart - aside from his totally rad, 80’s color scheme (I had a ski jacket in with these exact colors!) and let’s be honest, he has one of the coolest Decepticons names of all time!
We had a chance to check out the toy at New York Comic Con, an “Unboxing Event” hosts by Hasbro, just before their livestream presentation. Huge thank you for the #FreeSample!
The gallery below is of the earlier than new, highly anticipated Siege Voyager Class Apeface! Definitely one of the best figures with strong joints, three modes and a headmaster! Enjoy the gallery below!
“Astrotrain, TAKE OFF!” #Transformers #Siege - Gallery & Review
The packaging won't say "Masterpiece," but it might as well! This is the Astrotrain toy we’ve always wanted.
Neither too big nor too small, for me - he’s perfectly to scale with other prominent Decepticons like Shockwave, Tetrajet Seekers and Soundwave... At the larger Leader Class level, his alt modes are appropriately larger than others in the line.
His coloring is spot on! Particularly, check out the subtle details in train mode! They’re gorgeous!
His transformation? Oh baby, it’s exactly what you want: super intuitive because of the similarities with the G1 original, but better because of added complexities that make it a really fun challenge. The major difference here is how the arms fold up above his head/shoulders which adds appropriate length to his train and shuttle modes. Contrasting w/ the G1 where his too-small-arms fold into the chest torso. The nice thing here is that this allows for the vehicle modes to look larger than other toys in the series, while the robot maintains proper silhouette, portions and height.
Beyond the much appreciated similarities with the original, designers were creative here, added features which don’t hinder or get in the way. A coal car for the train mode converts to battle armor for the robot and a launch pad/base for the shuttle - BRILLIANT!
Honestly, can’t sing enough praises for this figure. It’s a total win all round.
Special thanks to @Hasbro for the #FreeSample! We had the opportunity to check it out at a special “Unboxing Event” hosted by Hasbro at New York Comic Con.
#Transformers War For Cybertron #Earthrise Grapple
I sat down last night to write about this, the final major reveal from Hasbro’s Earthrise diorama, when I noticed how close Unicron was to hitting the goal! Then, poor Grapple, his gallery and discussion post got set aside for the night! Oh well, better late than never! He’s looking good in Voyager Scale, cartoon esthetic head sculpt and coloring - even has his good buddy Hoist for completeness. The vehicle is the Earth style crane, which can be outfit with the excavation claw.
Along w/ the rest of the Earthrise line, he’s expected to to hit retail, ~March 2020.
On August 17, 2019, UK fan convention TFNation played host to a most momentous occasion in which Transformers Animated story editor Marty Isenberg presented a scripted performance of the original story treatment outline for what would have been the three-part season 4 premiere of Transformers Animated had it been greenlit for a fourth season.
Titled "Trial of Megatron" (as opposed to The AllSpark Almanac II, The Complete AllSpark Almanac, and Issue #71 of the TCC Magazine titling it "The Trial of Megatron"), the outline for this three-parter was presented not as a live script reading done in the style of those performed at BotCons of years past, but was instead presented with pre-recorded dialogue acted by almost the entire Animated voice cast (only Tara Strong and Judd Nelson were absent, with their respective roles of Sari Sumdac and Rodimus Prime performed by other people) and set to all new original artwork created for the story by fan artists. ...
