Something of great intrigue has turned up over at Australian website Ozformers
. As we know, the Generations line has lately been promoting the Fall of Cybertron video by releasing action figures of its character designs. But, like the 2010 version of the line with its War for Cybertron toys, the game toys will not last as interest in the games dies down over time. What is there left for the Generations line to cover afterward? Well, Ozformers user griffin
has discovered a very possible answer for this.
Within the pages of the latest issue of Toy Hobby Retailer, in a "Hasbro montage" section promoting Hasbro's 90th anniversary this year, a piece of artwork for an unfamiliar G1-like Optimus Prime design set behind the Generations logo was discovered. This Optimus seems to resemble his 2009-Present IDW G1 comics design, and is armed with what looks like a gun with a blue truck cab and windshield on it. Could this be a design for a new Generations toy? And if so, could this be a sign of things to come? Through the space bridge for the image.

“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
