Botcon 2013 Exclusive Obsidian revealed

obsidianALTweb

Due to a scheduling error, we are running a little behind in our week of Botcon reveals, so here is another! Obsidian!
Obsidian, like Strika, is another character from Beast Machines ported back to Machine Wars in his former Autobot glory. Obsidian uses the Hunt for the Decepticons Highbrow mold with a newly tooled head. He looks pretty great in robot mode, especially with those rotors on his arms like his Beast Machines design. The alternate mode is a bit more of a departure considering Obsidian was a helicopter in Beast Machines.

Here is a side by side by of the toys for Strika and Obsidian from Beast Machines.

Botcon 2013 Exclusive Strika revealed

Continuing our week of Botcon 2013 convention exclusive reveals, our third figure in the set is Strika. A bit of a surprise that this character was chosen since she was actually from Beast Machines, but I guess they are making some sort of connection because they both have ‘Machines’ in the title. Whatever works, I guess. She is shown here as an Autobot so this would take place before Beast Machines. She uses the Generations Warpath mold with a great deal of deco and a newly sculpted head.

Botcon 2013 Exclusive Skywarp revealed

Due to all the craziness of Toy Fair and the news streaming out of it, we fell a little behind posting the Botcon reveals for this year’s convention box set. Kicking off with Saturday’s Top 5 Machine Wars themed article, we are having ourselves a bit of a Botcon 2013 themed week. We’ll continue posting the reveals as the week goes on until we get caught up. Today, we take a look at Botcon 2013 Skywarp.

Skywarp was a pretty plainly deco’d basic figure in the original Machine Wars line. He was mostly white with little other than the faction symbol to break up the color. The new Botcon figure uses the Revenge of the Fallen Dirge mold with a retooled head.

Toy Fair 2013 has come and gone. As a gigantic snowstorm descended on the northeastern United States, a hurricane of toy news was felt all over the internet.

Here’s a Powet Top 5 list of what I thought were some of the most impressive reveals of Toy Fair 2013.

Toy Fair 2013: Masters of the Universe Classics

Matty_Mantenna5

Mattel had its presentation and showed off most of what we saw was leaked a few days ago. ToyGuru claimed the leak was on purpose, but I don’t think anyone actually believed him. We got our first look at the full sized, fully painted prototype of Castle Grayskull, the first three figures in the new Filmation subscription and more. Join us after the jump for lots of information and pictures!

Toy Fair 2013: Transformers Generations and Masterpiece lines

I’m breaking up the Transformers news by line because there was just so much information dispersed. The Generations line continues in 2013 kicking off the celebration of the franchise’s 30th birthday in 2014. 30th Anniversary logos will be appearing on packaging with pack-in comics included. IDW and Hasbro has been working together closer to try and get the toys and the comic art to match more closely. If these new reveals are any indication, they are being widly successful.

Join us after the jump for pictures and details of what is coming our way!

The Star Wars Black line was announced within the past few weeks leading up to Toy Fair, but we had only seen X-Wing Pilot Luke. I am happy to say we now have a look at the whole first wave of 4 figures. The first wave will consist of Luke, R2-D2, Darth Maul and a Sandtrooper. These are premium figures loaded with accessories and plenty of detail sculpted by Gentle Giant.

Join us after the jump for pictures and the 3.75 inch Black line as well.
