Another brand new toyline - Transformers: Device Label

Posted by:

TakaraTomy had done it again and has created another new Transformers toyline for older collectors. Previously, they introduced us to Music Label (which contained figures that turned into real-working music devices), Sports Label (which contained figures that turned in miniture replicas of sports footwear), Disney Label (which contained figures designed to resemble mechs based on a certain popular Disney character), and Chrono Label (which will contain figures that turn into real-working watches).

And now comes the next product line to enter the market: Device Label! This toyline contains figures that turn into real-working electronic computer devices. BigBadToyStore's preorder pages reveal five known figures to be part of this toyline. First up are Grimlock and Trypticon, who change from dinosaurs into laser computer mice. Next are Ravage and Tigatron, who chanfges from four-legged felines into 2GB USB Flash memory sticks. Lastly is Blaster, who changes from a robot to a USB hub.

NOTE: Some of this information has changed since first revealed. Previously, Grimlock was instead listed and pictured as Overkill (and colored mostly white), and Trypticon was instead listed and pictured as Dinobot (and colored mostly brown). Based on this, some of this current info may be subject to change.

Prime13 said,  - 2009-04-26 13:52:02
a usb hub I beleive is someting You can plug into your comp and use it as an extension for cable ports, I think...

Sabrblade said,  - 2009-04-26 13:52:32
It's a single unit that enables several USBs to plus into one USB port all at once.

@ Prime13, why are you turning into decepticon with that evil laugh
safeguard900 said,  - 2009-04-26 14:12:48
@sabrblade,I'M the youngest one here. I'm in 4th grade, for real
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-04-26 14:22:02
Yes, but you're not an admin. I said I'm one of the younger admins.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2009-04-26 14:33:29
I feel like a total nerd (which, really, I should be passed that feeling at this point in the game), but I really want the Grimlock, Ravage, and Tigatron.

Takara really is clever. This couldend up among the most classic things Takara can do if they decide to expand it to all the g1 device type figures. We could even see reflector come into this if we're , or a perceptor webcam ^-^!
On an unrelated note, I recently went to England and found a great comic and anime themed store, with an enormous section for Transformers. I got the UK Complete Takara Collection dvd set, Acid Storm, and 3 Henkei figures. When I opened my new Henkei Galavatron 2 weeks later though all my excitement turned to horror as I can't make the cannon arm come out of the back to swing it around AND theleft leg had the little metal thing that's supposed to hild it was hammered in incorrectly so the leg is either too low or can't go all the way down. So my question is, am I the only one to expirence quality control this bad? Or have worse issues come up?

@ safeguard900: who said I was The good Prime?
and I will be 14 on the staring day of botcon!, but I cant go scince its in the U.S. :(

>>>I hope Overkill gets a toy sometime.

I wasn't sure if you mean Overkill should get a toy, or if this toyline WAS overkill (I 'm inclined to agree with the latter).
But I admit, the Ravage USB drive looks pretty cool.
Anyway, to Black Starscream:
My Galvatron had good legs, but the cannon/turret is tricky. I'm not sure if you meant you're trying to push the cannon BACK, which isn't how the figure transforms. The cannon lifts up on post connected to two ball and socket joints. It is tricky to lift the cannon up, and usually I have to apply more force than I would care to. Worst comes to worse, the cannon can be popped out of the ball and socket joint, and repositioned that way.
The cannon is one of my complaints for the figure, and also that (for mine anyway) the arms come off WAY too easily. I don't think I've been able to transform him a single time without the arms coming off.

I really like Music Label Soundwave, so having a Ravage as a minion, and his enemy Blaster from the same kind of line?

Instantly bought.

And guys, let's try to keep on topic, OK? The forums are a good place to relax, and just chat.
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-04-26 20:46:06
As well as the section at the bottom of the home page.
Master Beas said,  - 2009-04-27 06:19:19
They should make a Unicron or Primus that can turn into a mini-frig. That would be a must have
Prime13 said,  - 2009-04-27 07:51:45
or make them turn into bowling balls, haha that would be hilarious!

blaster and soundwave would make great radio / sterios

and what about ACTUAL WORKING cassette bots?
shockwave 43 said,  - 2009-04-27 09:37:11
Cool! i want blaster and Safeguard 900, I think you are the youngest person here 'cause i'm in 5th grade.
KilledbyDeath said,  - 2009-04-27 15:25:05
There is some cool stuff coming out, I definitely want that usb hub.
Wheelie is my Name said,  - 2009-04-27 16:52:20
That blaster looks pretty cool since we don't have a clasics blaster. their not too expensive.
safeguard900 said,  - 2009-04-27 19:26:27
@Prime13, are you therefore Nemisis Prime?Or shattered glass Optimus Prime?
Powered Shadow Commander said,  - 2009-04-27 19:41:00
I am neither Autobot or Decepticon...... I am the Powered Shadow Commander!

(used to be Prime13, but got a major upgrade)

Sabrblade said,  - 2009-04-27 20:03:34
Nemesis Prime is usually a Decepticon. Only the Armada one was neither. Besides, there are many other TFs that have no faction.
Black Starscream said,  - 2009-04-27 21:49:04
How many factionless primes are there though? 1. The complete opposite of that is Megatron since he's Reverse Convoy.
Powered Shadow Commander said,  - 2009-04-27 22:04:55
I am a renegade mercenary in command of the Shadow quadron on cybertron

and I love to see you squirm.....

These look really neat! If I have a little extra cash, I might snag a few of these guys up.
starscreamer said,  - 2009-04-28 16:26:04
