Sneak peak masters of the internet, TF08 have our first good look at Transformers Animated Voyager Class Wreck-Gar.

Many pictures show close ups of his face as well as some slight side pro-filing. It also shows a good shot of his back pack, which from the looks of things, houses most of the vehicle mode when in robot mode and the robot mode when in vehicle mode.

What's the first thing you do when you get a hold of a pre release Transformers figure from a movie that hasn't even furnished a trailer? Well if you're eBay seller katier9297, you have it customized by kitbash artist Frenzy.Rumble and auction it off.

Below are pics of a custom Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Soundwave figure in all their high res glory. Included in the images is the rumored Ravage Missile that, according to the auction, is very rare.

It is very interesting to see a custom done with a figure that hasn't even been officially announced yet, let alone released. What will be more interesting is to see what our Transtopians think about it and how they plan to top it!

HASBRO- I know you have been patiently waiting, salivating for the answers, and good news, our submitted questions have been returned answered! We are privileged to be able to participate in the HASBRO Question and Answer, and we as collectors should be happy to know HASBRO hears our questions, and offers us answers.

Our Questions and Answers for December.

1.) Since the Universe toyline spans TF history, is there any chance of seeing a Transtech figure, or another "figure that never was"/"Lost Figure"? A "What Might Have Been" segment of the Timeline could be interesting to say the least.

HASBRO- It would definitely be interesting to see some of those concepts that didn't make it off the drawing board as a real toy, and the Universe line would be a great place to showcase it. In the immediate future we've got a whole list of other characters that are a little higher on the priority list, but you never know. We like to revisit these old concepts from time to time and if there's a great design we haven't used there is a good
chance it will see the light of day eventually.


2.) Any more Universe Ultras in the works? Are there any particular character(s) that you have been thinking would be a great fit for that particular size?


HASBRO- The team is really concentrating on Transformers Revenge of the Fallen product right now. Because of that, we have not been developing any further Universe Ultra items. However, there are members of the design team who would like to find space for more tanks, but currently nothing is definite.


3.) Most characters in the TF universe are male, but there were a few fem-bots in the 1980s cartoon as well. Will we be seeing any of them in the universe toy line?

HASBRO-For 2009, there are currently no "female" bots planned. However, we do have Arcee in the Animated line and you never know what could appear in Movie 2!

4.) Can you explain the typical pipeline for a toy from concept to finished product, including time & constraints, how many are produced, planning for repaints, etc.? A book illustrating this subject (with many images ) would be a very sought after collectible in the community.

HASBRO- Most items take 12-14 months from concept to store shelf. Hasbro does not discuss numbers or processes, however you can be assured that Hasbro and Takara/Tomy put a lot of love in each design.

5.) What is the hook for on Universe Galvatron's shoulder (the piece is gray and unfolds from another purple folding piece) ? And the fold out shoulder 'legs/feet'? Can you show us the conceptualized use of these features?


HASBRO- Initially, Galvatron was being designed as a triple changer and was actually going to be in a larger class. But once the decision was made to put Galvatron in Deluxe, his third "walker tank" mode was dropped. Because of molding reasons we had to leave some of those extra pieces in there. Here's the initial sketch and idea for the third mode. (see attached)

Mini Review of TF Club Battle Rollar

Seibertron.com member Cryo Prime has posted a mini review of the MP Optimus Prime/ Convoy upgrade Battle Rollar figure. Check out what he had to share below:


"An insignificant droid." You might make this definition when you look at Battle Rollar firsthand. You might even call him a coward considering his inaction against the raid at the energon storehouse. However, things might change... You cannot imagine such a tiny 'bot will have an opportunity to reformat his body and prove himself by saving his big friend and leader. Maybe you should change your mind and respectfully call him -- Battle Rollar!

This is the bio of Battle Rollar. I thought I would show some of you the things that Battle Rollar can do that no one really mentioned. For instance, he can combine with Optimus Prime's gun to form a Super Blaster and also combine with classics Prime, Movie Prime and Masterpiece Prime to form jet packs. So here are the pictures I have.

OTCA members Stompy and Jaydisc have found the previously unreleased Transformers Animated two pack of Jetfire and Jetstorm in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, from an independent toy retailer.

Making it even stranger is that figures that were due for an earlier release than the Animated flying twins, such as Shockwave and Skywarp are yet to be spotted on Australian Shelves.

You can check out photographic proof of their purchase by clicking here.

These 2 packs retail for AU$30, slightly more expensive than the standard Deluxe price point. As expected, the two pack comes with the bonus comic, and previews the figures: Swindle, Blurr, Blazing Lockdown, Shockwave and Skywarp on the bottom of the box.

Although no real information on who this figure is or may be, Seibertron.com member Peaugh has stated that this figure is in fact Movie Scout Class Figure Dead End, but is not sure if he will be making an appearance in Revenge of the Fallen, or is just a toy for the line, ala the very popular Movie Wreckage.
