ACtoys.net- The red scout-sized Revenge of the Fallen Decepticon car had a few names associated with it. Most recently it was decided based on eBay auctions that it should be called Detour.

cmg at ACtoys has other ideas. He has proof that the toy is named one of the more popular choices... Dead End.

What is his proof you might ask? None other than an image of the instruction sheet featuring the name for the bot formerly know as Laserbeak, Detour, and now DEAD END.

You can view the original ACtoy thread here, which has a nice set of pictures of Dead End, but as you scroll down also reveals the picture of the name on the instructions also uploaded below.

Walmart- A poster at TFW2005 has found both Universe Dinobot and Universe Smokescreen at retail in a Walmart in North Carolina.

The poster, raltherr, states that he was able to purchase both toys although there was difficulty with Smokescreen. Apparently, he was not in the computer yet.

"I found Universe Smokescreen and Dinobot in a local Wal-mart today. I didn't think they were due until March. When I brought them to the register Dinobot rang up fine. Smokescreen was not in their system. After about 45 minutes the manager rang up the Smokescreens as TFA Bumblebees. Then they pulled the remaining stock off the pegs. I'm not sure if this was a mistake with Hasbro sipping early or Wal-marts distribution. But they have been purchased by me in North Carolina. I have attached a few pics. One is in Wal-mart, the other is in my house. I didn't scan the receipt because Smokescreen wouldn't ring up anyway. And I don't want to get anybody at Wal-mart in trouble if they weren't supposed to sell them."

Smokescreen UPC: 653569376057

Dinobot UPC: 563569371007

TF Club reveals a few new images of the upcoming Knock Out figure from the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen toy line. Just after first seeing Roll Bar in-package a few days ago, we may now see Knock Out and his bio here.

And for you’re reading convenience, his bio may also be read below:

Though he is an incredibly flashy and skilled fighter, KNOCK OUT is also desperately insecure. He practices awesome combat maneuvers constantly in private to be sure that the other AUTOBOTS will notice him on the battlefield. His highest ambition is to be the leader of a special combat team, and to get the combination retrofit everyone has been talking about.

New Tri-Lingual Universe Deluxe Wave 4 Card Art

Thanks to some friends of mine I was able to get my hands on the Universe Wave 4 Deluxe figures about a month or so before they hit the big three here in Canada. Much to my surprise and happiness the new figures are on unique cards with individual card art on the front and tri-lingual bio's on the back. This was hinted at by Hasbro Canada this past year at TFCon in Ontario.

Well who cares you might ask? Mexico, Quebec and the rest of Canada. That's who.

For almost two years we've been backed into a corner so to speak when it comes to our hobby of collecting Transformers. For all of you in the States or across the sea you get clean, character focused box and card art. The three mentioned above get very generic packaging and has slowly slipped down a slope of quality to the point of no images on the boxes other then cross-sells on the back as seen here in an old news article from when Wave 1 was released in Canada.

Here are a few pictures, albeit blurry of two of the four new figures on their new tri-lingual packages. This is indeed a great treat for Transformers Collectors that keep figures MISB/MOSC or hold on to the boxes after opening the figures much like myself.

Here's to a great 2009 to our friends collecting Transformers with the new and improved packaging!

Seibertron.com member Sabrblade has done some sleuthing for us and found the bio for Transformers Universe 2.0's Leo Prime. I can't say it any better than he did so here's what he had to share:

The TF08 forums have posted several images of the upcoming Universe leo Prime figure in his package. One of these images shows the back of his box and reveals his bio! Click here to see the images.

But the image is a little big and cuts off the bio. But if one right-clicks the image, copies & pastes it into a Word Document, and moves the image over, his bio is perfectly visible!

Here's what the bio says:
LEO PRIME is a career soldier, commander of an elite MAXIMAL black ops unit designated The Pack. So secret is his unit, even most of those in the MAXIMAL Command structure are aware of it only as a rumor. LEO PRIME and his comrades The Pack travel wherever trouble is thickest, often working undercover to deal crippling blows to PREDACON plots.

EDIT: Here's the bio from the image after I moved it over. Notice the small timeline on the 25 Years logo.

TF08.net’s Yizhi521 has posted many new images of Rollbar from the upcoming movie’s toy line, in-package. Here we have a good look at the packaging, his bio, and confirmation that his name will indeed be “Rollbar” and that he’s in the scout class price point. Click here to view all of the images.

You may also read his bio below:

ROLLBAR is happiest when he‘s following orders. He is uncomfortable with improvisation, and terrified of being put into a leadership position. Despite that, he is a highly skilled navigator, and has a keen mind for tactics, making him an invaluable asset to his commanders. He is extremely strong and tough, and though he prefers not to fight, he can be a challenge to DECEPTICONS many times his size.
