{{{2}}}


For every Transformer that makes it to store shelves, there are always some that fall by the wayside. Lines get canceled, retailers back off on exclusives, designs go over budget, focus groups pass on a concept, or maybe they just weren't cool enough. Regardless of the whys and wherefores, this article aims to document the unreleased toys that never quite saw retail.

Note that this list will likely never be "complete," as for every concept design that makes it into collectors' hands, a countless number wind up in the garbage can.

(Quick! Get to the landfill outside Providence and START DIGGING.)

Notable examples

Generation One

Concept-HeadmasterArcee

Yup, they wanted to make me, but oh well.

  • A Rodimus figure with of strange design and transformation, it is believed that the Target exclusive transforming Optimus Prime gift card is based of this figure, as it is similar in design and transformation.
  • A "Decepticon Stingray" revealed in Transformers Vault. Though the image caption identifies it as "an unreleased and nameless Decepticon Headmaster", the artwork shown does not appear to agree with the "Headmaster" description.
Prototypes
Unicrondesktop-760x570

Unicron wanted a toy, but his bargaining posture was highly dubious.

  • Two Unicron prototypes were created during G1, neither saw full release.
  • Diaclone Triplechanger - His design was later used for Dropshot.
