Our fellow fans from Australia, the Ozformers
, have shared pictures from the 2013 Australian Toy Fair. It is light on new reveals - the greatest part of the new stuff having been seen at the US Toy Fair last month - but there are some new items such as:
Check out their full coverage here
- Back of box images for Generations Springer and Blitzwing
- Confirmation that Generations Blitzwing has three faces, and is inspired by his Animated counterpart.
- A second five-figure booster pack of Kreons is revealed, collecting Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime, Megatron, Soundwave and a mystery fifth figure
- Marvel Transformers Crossovers return - sort of - in the Iron Man 3 line which features transforming figures "with Transformers technology"
. Note that there were a couple of things on display they were not allowed to share, and these are blurred out in the pictures.
As a bonus, here are the bios for Springer and Blitzwing, as transcribed by 2005 Boards member AutobotMirage:
Autobot Springer was built to be a tough guy. Everything about him, from his nickel-plated blaster cannon to his bad-boy attitude, is calculated to communicate exactly what he wants it to-that he's a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners kind of guy. He prefers to fight alone, trusting his skills and luck to get him out of tight spots, rather than relying on his fellow warriors. After all, other Autobots fail. Autobot Springer never does.
With his heavily armored and highly destructive body, Blitzwing has the ice-cold mind of a master strategist-sometimes. At other times, he is a boiling cauldron of rage, waiting for any excuse to unleash his firepower on the nearest target. And now and again he is a chaotic whirlwind of bizarre behavior and intermittent bursts of plasma fire. His unpredictability makes him a poor soldier, but his raw firepower and unstable mind make him a useful tool for a commander as capable as Megatron.
