FUNCTION: Construction Engineer / Hero of Timelines
“The things I have seen….. it’s big…….. bigger then the Matrix”
Profile: It’s been a long and hard road for SHAFTER. Travelling from one time stream to another, visiting one “Animated” world, another “Primed” for action, while keeping one at “Bay” so that the powers that be don’t spill over into each other. SHAFTER has been changing and engineering a new body for himself to match his surroundings. He has seen some crazy stuff, and somehow his spark still keeps it all together. Back in the early days on his home planet, SHAFTER was originally considered for the HERCULES sub-group due to his amazing body re-engineering skills and some even rumor he might have helped with the early concepts of combiner technology. Cool, calm and collected, Shafter a real ladies’ bot, but if you cross him, you might end up on the receiving end of his CRAGUN; a chromed out pistol that while might be small, packs enough punch to take out even the most aggressive Destron. He currently is carrying a rivalry with AXIS, the only Destron to sport the C-14 body type.

We have another rumor to share with you today. We have learned the approximate order in which the remaining four figures in the Transformers Figure Subscription Service 2.0 will be coming out. We've spoiler-tagged these for the convenience of those who'd rather not know months in advance who is coming:
July - Thrustinator
August and September - Treadshot and Chromedome (our source was not clear on which was which month)
October - Rewind
October's release will also come with the mystery seventh bonus figure.Read Replies (0)

We have learned, from speaking with Hasbro staff briefly at Botcon 2014, that some versions of the Decepticon Stinger toy for the Age of Extinction toyline might be exclusive to Wal-Mart.
When asked following the Hasbro product reveal panel on Saturday about the lack of an appearance by Stinger in the presentation, we were told that:
"We've got some store exclusive releases lined up for Stinger with Wal-Mart, we should be able to show more at the Comic Con"
While it's not a concrete confirmation that the Generations AoE Stinger is going to Wal-Mart, it would explain why we've not seen a whole lot of him in advance retailer listings for the Age of Extinction Generations toys yet. Likewise it would also seem to explain why the Age of Extinction Power Battlers waves seen so far lack a Stinger.
Hopefully, we should have more information for you following the San Diego Comic Con.Read Replies (0)

and Takara-Tomy Mall
have uploaded some new product images of the next two releases for the Transformers Cloud series, Hot Rodimus and Shockwave. Rodimus is a recolored version of Generations Springer, and Shockwave is a purple version of Generations Whirl (who still screens "Whirl in purple" than Shockwave to us). One cool thing is that Shockwave does have a form of "cannon mode" thrown in which makes use of how Whirl has a gerwalk mode in addition to his robot and helicopter forms.
The first bit of the third chapter of the Transformers Cloud story
has also been added to the Takara-Tomy Mall site. The accompanying artwork shows Transformers Prime Ultra Magnus alongside the rest of the cast of Transformers Cloud. The Beast Hunters version of Prime Ultra Magnus, who is the one shown, never got a Japanese release - could this be a hint that Takara-tomy will soon rectify that situation?Read Replies (0)
