Generations 2014 Deluxe Toys Update - Crosscut, Arcee and Chromia Delayed

Posted on 04-23-2014 at 04:09 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
988840_575715385831993_559195602_n_1387309223_1390684547 Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have been contacting people who have ordered Transformers Generations 2014 Wave 3 - the Crosscut, Rattrap and Tankor assortment - to advise them that Hasbro has cancelled the assortment in its current form.

Important thing to note, these toys will still be released, but spread over future assortments.

Rattrap and Tankor have already been solicited in a new assortment and we understand these two are still coming out as originally planned - Crosscut, however, has been delayed to a future assortment.

Hasbro has not offered an explanation for the change of assortment - but given the well-documented issues with the Skids mold having swapped hips and weak balljoints on the hips on its original release, it is possible that Crosscut has been pulled while Hasbro tightens up QC to make sure the issues that affected Skids do not affect his redeco.

Update: We have also learned that Big Bad Toy Store has been asked to remove preorders for assortments containing Arcee and Chromia, as these toys have also been delayed from their original planned release.

Read on to view the full text of the update from Big Bad Toy Store.

Transformers Age of Extinction One Step Changers Variant Packaging

Posted on 04-23-2014 at 01:03 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
27433752d1398258827-new-official-images-power-battler-optimus-flip-change-drift-10308371_10152350745 By way of some new photos posted on Transformers Colombia, we have a look at some new, alternate packaging for the Transformers Age of Extinction one-step changers. This alternate packaging forgoes the window packaging we have seen previously, instead removing the windows for the boxes for larger artwork of the characters themselves. Check out the images attached to this post.

Transformers Colombia have also shared new images of the Age of Extinction Power Battlers Optimus Prime figure, and the Flip and Change Autobot Drift. You can also check out images of those attached to this post - and check out the face of this new Drift toy, he looks very much like Guy Fawkes from V for Vendetta!

Transformers Age of Extinction UK Release News - release 12th May, some toys to be Argos Exclusive?

Posted on 04-23-2014 at 12:51 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
T4title UK catalog store Argos have added a ticking clock to their website, counting down the days to the UK release of the Transformers Age of Extinction toyline, which from the countdown is anticipated to be 12 May.

What may interest our UK readers though is that the text accompanying the clock states that Argos will have some exclusive lines of merchandise and / or toys. It is not clear exactly what this means - but UK fans might want to keep an eye on Argos for some choice Age of Extinction releases.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1999

Posted on 04-23-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Beast Wars
1999 1999 was the fifteenth anniversary of the Transformers brand, an occasion that went largely unmarked save for a recognition at Botcon 1999 (which was also the fifth anniversary of Botcon). Beast Wars reached its climax, concluding with a finale written by long time Transformers comics scribe Simon Furman, and the toyline carried on and developed the Transmetals theme with Transmetal 2s. Japan meanwhile got a double-whammy of new series this year with a dub of Beast Wars seasons 2 and 3 as “Beast Wars Metals” as well as the Japan-only series Beast Wars Neo, which had its own toyline populated almost exclusively with new and Japan-only toys.
