I went out toy hunting today and found the Terrorcons at one of my local Walmarts. I haven't had a chance to open them up yet, but the reviews will be coming soon.

Nerdist has the first look at the new Bumblebee figure

I think this might be the first non-Masterpiece Bumblebee toy that actually turns into a realistic VW Beetle in...ever? I know the original G1 toys technically did, but I don't know that you'd call that realistic.

Overall, I think it looks neat, but I think the "Power Core" gimmick really screwed the movie-accurate look. I'm sure we'll be getting plenty of other versions, though.

The Studio Series line will be continuing with more screen accurate toys from the Bumblebee movie.

And judging from the look of the box, that looks to be a bigger toy, so probably not the "main toyline" version, which will most likely be a Deluxe figure.

Amazon exclusive PotP Punch-Counterpunch now available for pre-order.

https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... zon/41589/

He is (they are?) a new mold, with one car mode and two robot modes.

He'll be replacing my bootleg BotCon version on my shelf.

Hot damn!

EDIT: The pre-order is somehow out-of-stock... :grr:

I did get that sweet sweet Punch/Counterpunch pre-order off finally. I was tempted to get two and display both modes, but I balked at $24 for a slaggin' deluxe.

Yeah, the price is pretty steep to get all three Amazon exclusives. Even the inclusion of various Prime Masters doesn't really soften the blow.

Oh, and there is also a t-shirt available with their exclusives...and seperate t-shirts featuring each bot individually. After convincing my wife to let me get the toys, I'm not going to push for the shirts.

Power of the Primes is the last part of Hasbro's Prime Wars Trilogy. The next three Generations series will be the War for Cybertron trilogy, starting with Siege. The toyline will focus on Cybertonian vehicle modes, while still retaining familiar robot modes.

Several of the new toys were revealed at SDCC today. The first was the new Leader class Ultra Magnus. Unlike the recent Combiner Wars Magnus, this one's cab will be a separate white robot. His vehicle mode takes cues from 2001 Robots in Disguise.

The next toy revealed is Chromia. She looks to be a remold of PotP Moonracer/Novastar. Strangely, Chromia got a toy in the Thrilling 30 line in 2014, where she was a Cybertronian motorcycle (and a repaint in a Combiner Wars BotCon box set). I don't know why they didn't make this new toy one of Elita-One's other female troops, like Greenlight or Lancer.

Ironhide embodies the new toy design of a G1 sytle robot and a Cybertronian vehicle mode. The slide says he's a Deluxe class, but the TF Wiki lists him as a Voyager. He comes with a missile launcher that transforms into a hammer, which is part of the new C.O.M.B.A.T. weapons system.

Presumably, we'll get a Ratchet repaint.

Hound also gets a new toy in the toyline. I skipped the Hound from Combiner Wars, but this one might make me update him on my shelf.

Cog is an interesting choice. The G1 version came with Fortress Maximus. The SDCC display shows other bots holding his parts as weapons, so it looks like he is made up of various weapons that can be seperated.

Battlemasters look to be the new Targetmasters. They come with "Fire Blast" effect pieces that can attach to simulate weapon fire. This one is Lionizer; his G1 version originally came with the Action Master Rad.

The other one that's been seen is Firedrive, a new version of Hot Rod's Targetmaster, Firebolt.
