That Blaster looks sweet.
Damn you TakaraTomy for making me wait 'til Christmas for Blaster... *shakes head*
OK, what are we looking at here?
Those don't look like the original Constructicons to me. Granted, the photo is from an odd angle and they appear to be posed in mid-transformation and mid-merge, so it's hard to be sure. But I only see five, and none of them seem to be the G1 versions.
Also, what's with the vehicles in front of Bruticus? They're obviously similar vehicle types to the Combaticons, but aren't actually them.
Finally, I don't recognize any of the aircraft protos.
one of the constructicons looks like a tank?
I'd almost guess Micromaster... But there are only five, and they don't look quite small enough.
Worst... Angle... Ever...
My guess would be "very VERY early prototypes/hardcopies/mock-ups" from Takara's vaults.
yes, beat him with his own camera...
all three of those sets look like new molds. i don't recall there being an AWAC in the transformers universe. could those all be brand new versions of our favorite combiners?
i want to see what's hiding underneath the edge of that cabinet. see in front between the planes and the green bots there looks like the back end of a car with a spoiler on the back. and over on the far right the helicopter looks like it's been transformed. ugh i didn't think anyone could take such horrible pictures. i'm glad we have this at least. something to wet our appetite.
Looks like universe legends Jazz?
Hi. I was there today (I'll try, but I can't promise I can upload pictures with my internet connection here) and I'll clear up the mystery.
The little things surrounding Bruticus are original TF prototypes. I'm guessing they're from the early 80s at Takara, but they were all fairly undetailed little figures that were (I think) meant to show the original transformation gimmicks. SO, for example, one of them there was a modified version of what would be afterburner to show a motorcycle transformation gimmick. And those green things near Bruticus are some kind of mock up to show how Devastator would combine.
Is that Donald Duck Bumblebee on a skateboard?
Thanks for the info! Does that include the white unpainted figures and whatever the car w/spoiler is? It looks like there are at least 2 helicopters and a handful of plane figures in that area. Also, whatever is behind the the front panel where the light gets bent away. Can't tell at all what is on that pedestal.
Any word on what exclusive figures they are doing this year? Wildrider was last year, and that one was pretty kick-ass so I am hoping to hear of something pretty kick-ass this year but can't recall seeing news of it yet.
Wow, I would love to see some detailed pics of these guys.
Wow, so any more details pics to share with us?
Ravage looks really nice, looking forward to him.
I'd love to see more pics of those Combaticons as well.
is it just me or is the font the word Transformers onthe package for usb drive ravage strongly resemble the Star Trek the next generation font?
Hey, that's awesome, thanks for the explanation!
I hope that we get to see a better picture of the colored Disney Label Donald Duck. I don't understand the need for the silver center.
