The latest Transformers Collector's Club Magazine might feature Wreck-Gar on the cover
, but subscribers are now getting their copies and there are even more surprises inside. In this issue, the Collector's club pulls out all the stops and shows off:
in both robot and motorcycle mode
All of whom we have previously seen (well, except for Wreck-Gar's motorcycle mode).
However, the TFCC magazine also shows off a couple of brand new, never before seen toys - the first is a Legends Class toy named Trailcutter
, who is an update of Generation 1 Trailbreaker
with a lawyer-friendly name change. Yes he might only be a Legend, but at long last, Trailbreaker gets some modern line love!
Then comes the really left-field reveal. Yesterday we reported that a Walmart computer listing
had a Deluxe Class Optimus Prime among the other toys listed. Well, that mystery has now been solved - coming soon is a new Deluxe Class rendition of Generation 2 Laser Optimus Prime
. It's described as looking just like the original (pictured left) but without the cheat on the chest windows, and naturally comes with a sword. No pictures are available just yet but once they become available through official channels we'll update you here on the TFW frontpage.
Also revealed in this issue, and it's ironic that he's the footnote in an awesome news story given that he's pretty awesome in his own right, is that Masterpiece Rodimus Prime
will be seeing a US release - without his trailer. He'll be a store exclusive and might come with some new accessories to balance out not having the trailer. Even so, US owners who cannot import the Japanese release - or who never cared for the trailer to begin with - can own this excellent update of Hot Rod and his Matrix enhanced alter-ego.
