Hasbro showed up to Toy Fair 2017 with quite a few surprises, in addition to some expected Transformers lineup annoucements.
We finally got to see Leader Class Overlord, Voyagers Blitzwing and Octane and Deluxes Top Spin and Twin Twist. We also found out we are getting a new Seaspray and a new Ramhorn!
In addition to the normal line up reveals, Hasbro dropped two new exclusive box sets; Siege on Cybertron and Chaos on Velocitron.
The centerpiece of Hasbro’s Titans Return display at this year’s Toy Fair was the newly revealed Titans Return Trypticon.
Trypticon won a fan poll last year for the next titan class Transformers figure against the likes of Scopronok and Omega Supreme. This was the first time the full prototype has been on display and lots of news surrounding it has come out.
Full Tilt, the smaller Transformer that came with the original Trypticon, is included.
Full Tilt has a Titan Master. The Titan Master’s name is Necro.
Necro appears to be based on Wipe Out, an obscure character that appeared with Trypticon at one point.
No Electronics (the choice was to include Full Tilt instead of electronics).
Base mode can connect to the other bases in the line.
Opening the mouth reveals a ‘throat’ which will funnel a Titan Master down to Trypticon’s chest compartment.
As you know, next week is E3, the wonderful time of the year where we get hyped up for games that we won’t see for at least another 4 months. We can only guess what surprises that Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, along with several major publishers and developers will have in store for gamers this year. However, today sees a couple of huge potential leaks: One, being a cel-shaded Transformers brawler and the other being new DLC for Smash Brothers. Unless and until they are confirmed at E3, these two rumors should only be taken as little more than speculation, even if we have screenshots. [Read the rest of this entry…]
The biggest news out of Toy Fair for many was the official unveiling of Combiner Wars Devastator from Hasbro’s Transformers brand. 6 Voyager sized Constructicons will combine to form one giant sized Devastator. Each of the six figures rivals the original combined Devastator’s 9 inches of height, while the new combined form stands around 18 inches tall.
TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS COMBINER WARS CONSTRUCTICON DEVASTATOR
(Ages 8 & up/Approx. Retail Price: $149.99/Available: Fall 2015)
TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS COMBINER WARS figures form some of the largest TRANSFORMERS robots ever seen, and this one tops them all. This mega-pack unites all six of the CONSTRUCTICONS in one place. Each figure is rendered in incredible detail and features impressive conversion from robot to construction vehicle and back. But that’s just the beginning — the six Voyager Scale figures combine to form the ultimate DECEPTICON weapon: the mighty CONSTRUCTICON DEVASTATOR, the largest TRANSFORMERS COMBINER robot figure!
No, you’re not going crazy. This is still the Famicom Dojo Podcast feed, but we wanted to share this one-off Powetcast reunion. (Although, warning: this episode is explicit.) Sean gathers (most of) the old Powet.TV crew to discuss the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the next-gen video game systems we’re playing, 30 years of Transformers, 50 years of Doctor Who, and which comics are still worth reading.
Botcon 2014 is nearly upon us. Signaling 30 years of franchise history, the convention is sure to be one for the books. This year’s set will follow the theme of pitting Decepticon Pirates against Cybertronian Knights. Join us after the break for a look at each of this year’s exclusives!
Michael Bay is not a liked man amongst people who like movies. I like movies and I don’t hate Michael Bay! Actually I like his movies quite a bit. Call them what you will, popcorn flicks, mindless entertainment, whatever, I don’t really respect those terms, I just like movies that are fun to watch so here are five pretty damned fun movies that are directed by Michael Bay.
