Toy Fair Australia 2015 – Platinum Edition G1 Blaster, Dinobots, Trypticon & More

Thanks to the awesome folks over at Ozformers and user Griffin, we now have some new info to share! Griffin had the opportunity to go to the Australian Toy Fair event and while nothing new was shown, new info was provided.  This is going to be a great year for G1 collectors as the Platinum Editions are taking off and we will be getting some heavy hitters as well. Conformation was provided for the Platinum Edition reissues of G1 Blaster and Perceptor, we will also be getting a Trypticon reissue along with the Dinobots! No word on who is getting these or if all the Dinobots will be released. Also confirmed was the pending Starscream Masterpiece. We got some hints last year in New York and well, that info seems to coincide with what is being reported. Starscream will sport the new seeker body (MP-11) and he should be a Toys R Us exclusive. Read on for his full report and 2015 is shaping up to be an amazing year for Transformer fans.

Hasbro Masterpiece.
The Starscream Masterpiece will be the second version of the mould, which was MP-11, because that was the version fans wanted (apparently).
Masterpiece Bluestreak will be out here in about July.

Platinum Edition.
It really is the year of the Gen1 reissues.
Myer exclusives – Seeker 3-pack, YOTG Optimus, YOTG Soundwave.
ToysRUs will have the Insecticon 3-pack, the Perceptor/Blaster 2-pack, Trypticon, aaaaand…. Dinobots. YES, Gen1 Dinobots multipack which I
hope is all five, and all in Gen1 colouring.
I guess all the popularity with Dinobots last year, it was finally worth rebuilding or reverse-engineering the original Dinobot moulds. Plus Trypticon
as another Dinosaur to sell off the hype of the Movie Dinosaurs.
(no sign of the Astrotrain/Blitzwing 2-pack here as it was not on the future store exclusive listing)
