Evidence of the first Transformers Prime toy?

Postby Obsidian » Fri Nov 26, 2010 5:52 pm

We already know that due to this summer's release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon and it's concurrent toy-line, we will not be seeing a dedicated Transformers: Prime toy-line any time soon, but we have been told at BotCon by Hasbro representatives, that Transformers: Prime figures will receive a "soft launch" of a few figures in the current Transformers toy-lines. As it goes, 2011's Transformers: Generations and Reveal the Shield toy-lines are perfectly conceived to squeeze in figures from various series, era's, and even styles (including the coexistence of movie style figures (mostly recolors), War for Cybertron toys, G1-classics, IDW comic characters, and more).

So what line will Hasbro release it's TF: Prime "soft launch" figures in? I'm willing to wager that the TF: Prime show it'self (with it's sneak peak premere airing today) gives us a pretty strong clue, not just in what toy-line these toys will be released under, but also the first character! Check out the picture below for proof (or at least very strong evidence)...

Well, possibly. But this isn't the first time we've seen blackened out marks in the shape of insignias.
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

I could've sworn I read something about Prime toys coming in October 2011 on the TFWiki.
