Presser is a third-party Transformers homage to the Transformers Autobot Impactor.

Development

Presser was designed by Cassy Sark under the pseudonym Bal Dillinger. Presser was originally intended to be a head upgrade for Generations Warpath, but the designer pressed for it to be a whole figure.[1] The finaly figure was designed to stand a head taller than FansProject Defender.[2]

Presser was previewed at the Third Party Panel at TFcon 2011.[3]

Presser was teased on the last page of the comic that came with iGears Attack, with the text of the ad reading "Everything will change in 2011... COMING SOON".

Pictures of the Presser prototype were posted to iGears' Facebook page in February of 2012.[4]

The [email protected] podcast for June 17th, 2011 selected a picture of Presser as one of the New Picture Picks. The hosts expected it to cost at least $70. They expressed worry that Hasbro might make an Impactor toy in the Generations line which would hurt sales of this toy.[6]

The Radio Free Cybertron podcast for February 29th, 2012 discussed in Presser as part of their Third Party Roundup. Host Brian said he would want this toy under his Christmas tree.[7]
