Robot kingdom just uploaded these pics. @Maz are these older advertisements? Of are they maybe new?
They sure look older. Just look at those prices! Lol.
Haha yeah they certainly look the part. I have some old Diaclone materials myself. I’ll dig out those books in a few minutes if I’m able to get some free time.
And vintage ads or not, I would suspect you’re right in that they are hinting at something. Do we know if the original Raiden molds still exist? Maybe there will be a reissue of the original followed by a modernized version later on. Who knows.
Molds needing to exist for reissues just might not be a thing anymore. If it’s available for use or not I fully expect a Raiden reissue giftset to happen. I just might brake my rule of no non-MP bots for that one. It’s simply too rare not to own. And I know for a fact that MP Raiden is on the way. That was already confirmed my Takara last year.
That Grimlock looks... off?
Maybe it's just something for the Diaclone anniversary? It's 2 different posters, maybe there teasing Raiden and a new Grimlock?
Those are G1/Diaclone advertisements, knowing Robotkingdom, they are probably place holders.
Think it might just be because its the 40th Anniversary?
Diaclone - Transformers Wiki
Placeholders FOR WHAT?!!???? Jeebus this is going to be an exciting month. For toys at least lol
They uploaded what looks like an entire vintage Diaclone catalog to their Facebook page, not just the pictures you posted, so it's probably more of a "Look what we found!"-kinda thing more than hints at what is to come. Just scans of an old toy catalogue, not placeholders for anything.
Those prototype Dinobots looks so cool! Blue windscreen Jazz as well. Awesome to see these ancient scans, man. Great piece of history!
Vintage ads, art, literature and promos.
All the best
Hey Hasbro! See that awesome Autobot Commander looming larger than life in the background?
And while you're at it...let's get a Gats Blocker homage built out of Weaponizers!
….but seriously. Siege. Delta. Magnus.
Oh yeah! You’re right. I only got the two I posted in my news feed but all of these were posted 12 hours ago. Well.... I’m still hoping for some cool announcements :O
excellent. They look amazing! Hopefully we get some cool announcements soon
Ah, the days when you could just write "Porsche" on the windshield of a Porsche toy and not worry about trademarks and contracts.
The second pic has me wondering if they're hinting at Masterpieces of all the original Dinobots, including a new MP Grimlock.
Damn and here I was thinking we'd get new Dianaut compatible MP Dinobots and Seekers
