    pretty sure you got this from /Toy on 4chan since that's where I saw them. and the link from /Toy is originally from here: 2018年向けの海外製品リーク画像らしきもの

    and pretty sure all of it is from a Power Of The Primes Subline. ;)

    That's definitely the new Starscream toy's design basis

    The BB and Screamer art looks different, Grimlock does look like a POTP but a new item... maybe something like one-step, it also looks like a model-kit. We may know more at Hascon.

    How would that be PotP art when we've already seen the PotP packaging at SDCC?

    Not to mention those are both cards and Screamer/Grim are voyagers.

    Are we sure that's not for the next show instead of generations.

    Yeah, it's curious that Grimlock says "some assembly required". I'm down for (more) official model kits (which transform).
    Starscream is a completely different design to the POTP one we've seen, definitely.

    Movie Bumblebee is superior to nothing. He's a clusterfuck of metal bits and bobs with a dummy for a mouth.
    This looks like a take on one of the IDW Bumblebee designs (like the previous Generations toy).

    No, we're not, and it probably is.

    Some assembly required might indicate Hasbro is moving into the small model kit market now...a slightly larger, painted Kabaya toyline, essentially.

    The Bumblebee artwork looks like it could be from the cyberverse cartoon.

    Maybe. It might just be that his legs are detached to fit in the box.

    Well, using Facebook's translate option, we get:
    (on Grimlock and BB pics)
    "2018 Transformers New Series Steel Lock, Bumblebee Packaging Concept Art Chart"
    (on SS and cube pics)
    "Transformers 2018
    Days V-class Uranus Packaging Concept Art Chart
    The other one..... the editor still doesn't know what it is....."

    So it sounds like the Grimlock is one of those Metal Earth 3D kits, even the description on the image has the same disclaimer as the Metal Earth kits "Some assembly required. No tools needed."
    BB does not look like TR Bee. The black stripes on the head and chest, plus the headlight shape on the shoulders, looks more like his Camaro designs from the movie lines.

    I doubt this is some sort of model kit. "Some assembly required" probably just means the way Grimlock is packaged in the box, they probably had to leave something detached. Like his tail or something. We've seen it before. I think every Titan class figure had some assembly required. Like snap an arm or leg on. Can't recall any specific voyagers that needed that though, but there's probably one out there.

    Yes, I also think it could be a model kit but I prefered to leave that speculation on the forums.
