1 Month Until #Transformers War For Cybertron - #Netfilx Debut
Just 30 days to go - but who's counting?! ~
On a scale from Last Stand of the Wreckers (perhaps the best piece of TF fiction ever written) to Transformers Armada (U.S. dub, being the most painful thing to endure through, IMHO) my expectations are somewhere between Transformers Prime and (2007) live movie 1. What are your greatest hopes and fears and where are you setting your expectations for the upcoming series?
We are happy to share some quick pics of one of our first Decepticon Modulators, Decepticon Greasepit. This figure comes to use from the Hasbro Generations Selects line which is a line that consists mostly of repaints. The new Greasepit figure is a repaint of ER Ironworks, he comes with not one but two new parts to complete his gas station mode which is something that we really appreciate. The attachment point for the new Gas pump piece is present on the Ironworks figure as well as his art which tells us that this was always intended, Hasbro Takaratomy typically plans things out well in advance of release. We are really enjoying this figure, even though he is a repaint, the new parts and slightly different configuration more than makes this feel like it's own character. Since this is the same mold as Ironworks, you can come up with similar configurations as well as anything that your imagination can conceive, that is one aspect of these figure that alot of people tend to love. What do you think of the new Greasepit figure? This figure should be showing up on Hasbro Pulse and various other online retailers soon so keep your eyes open.
The rumors are true, we have official images of Generations "Alternate Universe Optimus Prime" AKA Death-Bed-Optimus complete with an all new bashed up head-sculpt, Matrix of Leadership to hand off to Ultra Magnus, and an actual death-bed (I mean repair slap???) inside his trailer! Pre-orders are now listed form our sponsor TFsource. Reserve yours using the link above today!
Interesting note that this figures' box says simply Generations with no mention of WFC, Earthrise, or even Generations Selects.
Newly announced online exclusive Generations Selects Rotorstorm is now available for pre-order from our sponsor The Chosen Prime. Pre-order yours from the link above today!
Includes the absolutely gorgeous #Earthrise Titan Class Scorponok, in all his modes and all his glory! Arcee and Cyberverse and more. Photos highlight another cool feature (that we hadn’t seen before) of Mega-Zarak, and how the red visor lifts and retracts over top of individual, red eyes!
The coneheads are (apparently) coming! Leaking their way, slowly but surely onto Chinese social media we get our first look at the retooled seeker Voyager: Dirge. We’ve seen a glimpse of Thrust before, now how about some love for Ramjet as well?! ~
TFA Art Director @DerrickJWyatt tweets
“Long lost Autobot! I recently found the original lost line art of Clipper done by @potatofarmgirl for TFA season 3! Cleaned and colored with more recent creation Lyzack by @dyemooch”
Who is Clipper you ask?! To be honest, we didn’t know either, so we consulted with the wiki”
“Clipper is an Autobot Micromaster from the Victory portion of the Generation 1 continuity family... (クリッパー Kurippā) hails from Planet Micro, home of the Micromasters...
Clipper's model is basically a leaner, visor-less rendition of the Decepticon Sports Car Patrol Micromaster Hyperdrive. A year later, that mold was released by Takara in very Clipper-esque maroon-and-white colors as part of the Autobot Super Car Patrol Team... but named Gingham (who had his own similar-but-more-toylike animation model). Still, Gingham makes a decent substitute toy for Clipper...”
This explains why I (we) hadn’t heard of her before. Since there’s no official toy of her ever made, she doesn’t exist in our TFDb - toy-centric database. As they say, pay attention (!) and you (we!) will learn something new (about Transformers) everyday!
#Transformers Generations Selects Exhaust & Greasepit First Looks via eBay Auctions
Recently ended auctions allows us to see the robot modes, packaging and a few other interesting snippets to speculate about... Notice the instructions clearly states, "Decepticon Exhaust" - while faction symbol on the toy is certainly something different and out of the ordinary! Anyone out there seen this before or have guesses at to what it could mean!?!
#Transformers #Earthrise Snapdragon w/ Krunk New Official Photography
Always loved his beautiful design and color palate. Hoping he has some moments of badassery in the War For Cybertron on #Netflix. (Keeping fingers crossed to see the series continue into Earthrise and beyond! ;)

Pre-Orders Open for Centurion Drone Weaponizer Pack, Rotorstorm and Tigertrack
The Weaponizer pack was labeled as "Sold Out" for a time. It appears available again now, so I would not delay if you want to get your hands on this set. (Guessing someone decided to increase the size of production run...)

Editor's note: I can tell you from experience, that Hasbro pays attention to your comments, right here on our Facebook feed and other social channels! So, choose your comments and feedback carefully!
If you'e got the 25 minutes to spare, you should definitely go back and listen to their presentation, in its entirety here: https://bit.ly/2BFSw1F
If you guys missed out on this amazing magazine, ToyRobot has offered up their premiere issue one last time for people who missed out, and for international fans. Order one before it's too late! They are incredible!
WFC Earthrise Sky Lynx brings alot of play value to the table, more play value than any other Sky Lynx figure to date. There is no limit to what you can do with this figure, you do not have to limit yourself to the 5 official modes, you can come up with your own unique Rocket Base configurations. This base can also connect to Omega Supreme, Modulator figures such as Ironworks and other Air lock compatible figures from WFC for an ever expanding play value that builds upon itself with each additional figure that you buy. I cant wait to see what they will do next in the Commander Class, we sure could use a Decepticon in the Commander Class, say maybe Deathsaurus or Thunderwing~
Great Scott! Where #Transformers are going, apparently #BackToTheFugure - they don’t need roads!
Two of our favorite properties coming together!? Please say it will be so! Echo-tron needs some friends! And we couldn’t be too much happier to see these properties find their way to the Collaborative series! What should he be named and what do you want that robot mode to look like?!
Stay tuned. Our bet is we will learn a great deal more at this Friday’s HasbroPulse reveal session.
