Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo Production Designs with possible alternate head design

Posted on 12-19-2014 at 03:30 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
10847621_748593971877466_5072151466422126161_o The official Transformers Facebook page has updated with a pretty cool compilation image that traces the evolution of the new helicopter member of the Aerialbots, Alpha Bravo. Alpha Bravo is a reimagined Slingshot, though the comics by IDW make him a separate character in his own right.

This image charts the progress of a Transformer design from the early sketches, through the grey model prototype phase and the color charts, right down to the final design.

The sharp eyed might notice, though, that there is a different head in the top right of the document to the one on Alpha Bravo. Alpha Bravo has a faceplate, a visor, and other details around the head are also different. Which begs the question - is this an earlier head design before concepts for the character went a different direction, or is this a stealthy glance at a potential alternate head for use on a remold of Alpha Bravo as Protectobot Blades - whose head features some of the design elements shown in the sketch, and others could be explained away as Hasbro's reinterpretation of the classic head design. There's also a red version of the helicopter mode right beneath the head - so could this be a tease at Blades?

Mark Wahlberg committed to doing "a couple more" Transformers movies

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 06:41 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
250px-Cade Mark Wahlberg, who played the inventor Cade Yeager in this summer's Transformers: Age of Extinction, was talking to MTV and one of the things which he was asked concerned the future of the Transformers franchise. His response was as follows:

"Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more... you know I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon."

By all accounts it sounds like we might see Cade Yeager make a return for at least one, maybe two more Transformers movies going forward!

Check out the video clip where this was discussed below:

Transformat - A Transformers Toyline Concept

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 02:00 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
HwnPjV4 We have something extremely cool to share with you today. Professional toy inventor Andrew Mercer (aka Caution Low Sign) got in touch with us to share a concept for a Transformers line which he created. The concept, Transformat, was a plan to celebrate the different eras of the Transformers brand with toys of characters who could shift between their classic and modern incarnations. Andrew shared this brief writeup with us to explain more:

"I started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, I thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. That is actually where the name Transformat comes from, Transform + Reformat. Enough time has passed so I wanted to share my work with the community. I built the prototypes by cutting/pasting/customizing/painting a bunch of different toys and plastic parts, (minus Starscream who is a concept mock up using existing toys) The Optimus Prime comic artwork was done by Alex Milne and Josh Perez. These guys are true professionals and a pleasure to work with. I appreciate them keeping this concept confidential for all these years. I plan to keep working towards my goal of having Transformers concepts on the shelves for everyone to enjoy.

Thanks for having a look.

You can check out some pictures showcasing the concept attached to this post - and also be sure to check out this Youtube video demonstration which shows how the Bumblebee concept transforms between his two Generation forms:

Toy Soul Convention Images of 3A and Kids Logic Bumblebee and New AOE Grimlock

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 11:07 AM by Matty under Conventions
16049046575_1c17ea7722_b The Toy Soul convention in Hong Kong is currently ongoing and we've had a few images crop up over at of some interesting Transformers. We've seen images prior of both the 3A Bumblebee as well as Kids Logic Bumblebee. The newest image we have is of an Age of Extinction Grimlock figure, which at this time we're unsure if this is a part of the Kids Logic toy line or if it's from the Dual Model kit line. The display appears to be around other Kids Logic displays, so for now you'll have to be the judge and decide from taking a look at the attached images!

Check it out after the jump.
