Just got back from Toy Fair! Here are detailed descriptions!

Postby GetterDragun » Sat Feb 16, 2008 5:54 pm

I'll probebly merge this topic with Ryans when the gallery is up. So consider this the pregallery news!

Here's what we got:
Animated Jazz - Looks like the front of a Porsche with a Speed Racer back, Robot mode is actually G1 Jazz-esque with the doors out to the side, he also look the closes to a regular TF as an animated. He had two nunchucks as weapons.

Animate Roll-Up Prime Supreme Class - Nice looking figure and a decent size. Basically as you push him forward his body rotates transforming more and more after each revolution, then you transform the legs. Has lights and sounds.

Leader Bulkead is a HEADMASTER! Well, sort of. I guess in the cartoon, the headmaster guy puts a helmet on the figure to control them, the Helmet is G1 Skorponoks helmet. When you put this on him his voice changes and his phrases change to villain stuff.

Then they had these quick change Animated figures that were cool, they were bigger than Legends, fully poseable, but little. Really cool!

CLASSICS:

They all rock! Prowl is awesome followed by Sunstreaker. They stated in just worked out that they made Sideswip to be able to have the car hood as his chest. So it is true that Sideswipe will be a backwards Sunstreaker.

Galvatron is awesome! I thought he wa going to be bigger, but he is awesome. The tank mode reminds me of G2 Megs (the blue one) but realistic and the robot mode is perfect.

Cybertron Soundwave as Blaster was awesome, and they had a repaint of Cybertron Quickmix which was, eh. The boxes for the bigger classics are really cool.

They also might repaint some original Classics, BUT NO BOTCON ONES. So you might see Sunstorm (my guess), or some other repaints.

Classics Legends are back as well.

MOVIE NEWS! All the robot designs are done and "figureized" and have been sent to Takara!
Classics

Masterpiece news: It sounded like Hasbro might repaint Starscream again, but they have not heard much on the MP front.

25th Anniversary stuff - They will celebrate it. Later on I asked an unrelated question about future combiners or headmaster in Classics, and they said "Well, we have 25th Anniversary coming up", so maybe we get some cool G1 thing with that!

TFormers has pictures up. The new toys look incredible. Though the Universe packaging looks...odd.

I was thinking Thundercracker myself... just because there is nothing really of him in the paints yet. It would be doable too. :D

You know, I hadn't thought about them doing 25th ann for Transformers. They did it for GI Joe though. Those should really be worth waiting for. Thanks for the info.
Can't wait to see Galvatron.

Great Job Getter!!!!

I look forward to so much of this stuff :grin:

Bring on Classics, and the 25th, and TF2!

Also, Hasbro, don't expect to hear much on the MP front when in the past year you've only released 1 figure, and it was an exclusive in the worst retail chain to do that in :roll:

Now hurry up and get some pics :D

Jazz sounds great except for the nunchucks. He's a Transformer, not a TMNT.

=P~ :grin: 8-} :mrgreen: =P~
Where did you get these pictures?
That Jazz is so awesome!!!
he makes me want to type in All-Caps.
nun-chuks, eh? 8)

Where did you get these?
I've been to almost every site.

is that a Universe Red Alert?
Cool, that'll make my friend happy. His favorite characters are Wheeljack, Ratchet, Perceptor and Red Alert.
But Cyb Hot Shot is getting repainted so much. Oh well, is his mold really good? or is it just easy to repaint...

JAZZ I WANT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok done using Caps Lock.

GALVATRON, not realy what I've been hoping for, but still dam good so I'll take him! I hope propper suport will get us an eventual true updated G1 version.

CrossOver Hulk, this is looking pretty cool and will fit right in with the movie figs, so he's on the list. The rest is just the same ol' however I look forward to seeing more.

Movie, nothing new

RH Arcee, running right for me :D

Animated is still hit or miss with me, I'm not excited about Jazz at all.

Thanks for the pics though guys! I still can't believed I flaked on the date for this :sad:

Love the way they handled Soundwave, he rocks! They got the tape-deck buttons on his front grill and the tape designs on his arms. I'm loving the Animated stuff more than Universe/Classics, mainly because it's so different.
