8 more War For Cybertron figures in the Generations line? Jazz and Grimlock Confirmed! Grimlock better be a new mold and not a repaint of Classics Grimlock

Optimus Maximus? Are we harkening back to the days or Battlestars? Hopefully these ones will be posable

Screw Kreo, even on 75% off Clearance the shelves are still stocked with them

Cyberverse? No! Bring back the scout class!!!

Optimus Maximus and not, say, Maximus Prime? Optimus isn't usually used as a designation (aside from Optimus Primal). Can only hope he resembles Fortress Maximus a little. Haven't really bought into the whole Cyberverse line except for a couple of the more interesting ones (Powerglide, Hatchet, Guzzel), but if he has a good bot mode and a non-base alt mode I might pick him up.


Fall of Cybertron sounds like it's off to a good start, just hope Grimlock is larger than deluxe considering his stature in the game.

Folks need to start buying Kre-o. I was skeptical at first, but now am totally sold. I cannot wait to see pics at the NY toy fair. My only ? Would be: where are ratchet and hound??


Soon looking forward to foc grimlock, but agree it would be silly to have him as deluxe

i'm pretty excited for Fall of Cybertron figures. Grimlock will be a deluxe i'm sure. they made no mention of there being Voyager Generation figures.


I love the idea of Optimus Maximus but hate the name. can't wait to see pics. hopefully at the NY Toy Fair. When is that btw?

This is all awesome news! I really wish there were some pics to go along with it though. Optimus Maximus sounds epic, FOC seems to be getting better attention than WFC did, and Kre-o lives! It doesn't get any better than that!

    • 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.
