Six Second Toy Talk: Transformers Generations Gears

TransformersToday, look at Transformers Generations Gears. It's potentially something you should be finding nowish if you didn't order one online.

Also, customizer Cheetimus made a video that shows you just how easy it is to de-chrome your Generations Leader Jetfire. As a bonus, the plastic underneath is red. It'll cost you about $15 in chemicals, it seems. History indicates the figure's chrome may crack or flake with time, so it may not be a terrible idea to de-chrome it now or keep this link handy for down the road when it starts to molt.

In Case You Missed It: Transformers Protectobots Sets, Pre-Order

TransformersTransformersIn case you missed it, Come See Toys posted the Asia Protectobots Transformers Sets which are coming to Singapore. There are 2 sets mixing Prime, Revenge of the Fallen, and Universe molds. Of note (pictured) is the Reveal the Shield Grappel mold, redecorated as Hot Spot in red for some reason as he wasn't actually red. So it's kinda new.

The other set seems to be coming to Amazon for $32.99 as the Transformers Asia Kids Day Protectobots Emergency Response 3-Pack. This set has 3 figures, is supposedly due in October 1, and is $32.99. Oddly, no picture is posted, and I wasn't able to find the companion set at press time. The set uses 3 Prime molds to make First Aid, Streetsmart, and Groove. Groove is basically Prime Arcee Cyberverse with some silver.

OMFG Series 4 Now on Kickstarter

OMFGBoatyVia Kickstarter: OMFG! Series 4.

They're due in April 2015 and October Toys has been historically good on reaching their delivery dates - I've supported every one of their Kickstarter projects so far and have been pleased with the results. The cheapest level is $12 shipped for a flesh-colored 5-pack, I went for the $27 set which has a black set and a flesh set. The project has 25 days to go.

Series 5 voting will be open to Series 4 backers - which is an interesting change of pace and I daresay a good idea.

Play With This Too Reveals More

ToysNewVia Play With This Too: Astroblast in Color.

A line of articulated 6-7-inch action figures with 5mm compatibility and Masters of the Universe Classics-style articulation is in the works with no known pricing or ETA. The figures are said to be designer toys, and from the look of things they take some direction from Transformers Pretenders toys of old.

Following a loathsome trend, rather than post stuff on their own web site PWTT is posting a ton of new images and art to Tumblr. Astroblast and Desolator art are up now and they do look fairly ambitious. The line itself has no name as of yet, and they do seem a lot more intricate than most current strains of indie and Kickstarter-derived action toys.
