BaCon

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Tformers sponsor, Kapow-Toys, who have posted word over on TFW that the Reveal of the Shield sub-line will be starting in December. "Following on from the pics of TF united yesterday we've received some sparse news on a new theme / line from Hasbro coming sometime December. All we have been told is its called ''Reveal of the Shield'' and is of a G1 theme which will be of interest to mainly collectors. Sorry for such little info, we'll post more as we get it" Read the Full News Story Here

Take a look at tracks, he has a rubsign.....Obviously his "shield" IMO. So they´re trying to hype a gimmick from right back when the TF franchise started

@ pstruhs; Yes it is. Its Windcharger redone from the G1 line. ;)

 

The "Reveal the Shield" is just a name for G1 with rub signs. Since they all have rubsigns i believe.

 

Cool that its coming sooner! Maybe there trying to push all the 2010 stuff out of the way, to make room for TF Prime and TF3. Which im betting are the 2 toylines that will take up most of next year.

 

*edit*Lets just hope these figures dont get pushed aside by retailers, sicne they're wave 4 (later waves seem to get lost in ordering at retail alot of times) Maybe we'll see e at discount at TJMaxs.

Since it WAS Autobrand and Deceptibrand... I think that it would be 100% lame if it was rubsigns.. UNLESS it was things like Punch/Counterpunch and the Allegiance revealed depended on the side of the soldier..

I´m pretty sure it´s just rubsigns after seeing the rubsign on that pic of Tracks. Either that or every figures now gonna have some shitty shield gimmick that unlocks stuff, like cyberkeys. or maybe they´re all gonna have Cpt. America´s shield now.... :shrug nah maybe not i´m sticking with rubsigns. Can´t get more "GEEWUN" than that

Rubsigns? Please no . . . I thought they were stupid-looking when I was a kid, I bought proper symbols for my classics to replace the rubsigns, I really don't want them to return. I always hated the glaringly out of place square on the figures, and especially hated when Hasbro used them instead of proper symbols. Please Hasbro, let them die. . .

Meh. Rubsigns are ok, RED Autobot and PURPLE Decepticon symbols are better, but what are you gonna do? Pay twice as much from Takara, from a major scalper like BBTS? heh. Not me, yeah, i got Henkei! Prime and Megatron, but id rather pay Hasbro prices for my collections.

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
