Seibertron.com's very own s250 has provided us with an heads-up to photos of new and previously unseen toys, from both Transformers Revenge of The Fallen and Transformers Animated. Here we can see what would appear to be a new retool of deluxe concept Camaro Bumblebee with new arms, and shoulder cannons.

The other prototype would bear an striking resemblance to Transformers Animated Ratchet's pre-earth vehicle mode, although it may also be Ironhide. What do you think? Click here to view the images, then feel free to discuss!

On the Transformers Collectors Club Forums, Pete@Botcon has posted about what to possibly expect from the club this coming year. Though it is pretty vague for the most part, one part does stand out:

As far as the incentive figure, right now we are still hashing out the story. Once we have done that we will decide on the toy. We have a few ideas in mind and I really can't say much as far as who or what we are looking at. Part of it depends on the direction the brand is going as well, so as always, there are a lot of factors. I can say that the ideas we have been throwing around are pretty wild and would be doing something that would kind of throw people for a loop (we like doing that )

Now Club Exclusives. I know it is the standard response, but we are working on them. The guys and I got together and came up with some very cool ideas. One of them is WAYYYY out there, way out of the box lol. One is an automatic in my opinion. So we'll see. They will go to the Bro' and then we will go from there...

So the short answer is yes, we are working on more plastic crack, that is for sure. Brian and I have talked about us needing to get the club toys up to speed and we are working on it. We are always open to suggestions too. If you have an idea or two, post them. I have read through the idea threads many times...

Now, other improvements. We are looking at new board software. I will actually be getting back to that here this week.

I have some ideas for the Members only page. That is on my list as well.

Hope that answered a little bit. I will take more questions in this thread...

- Pete

Seibertron.com member Jenus has shown us new images of the upcoming Henkei exclusive repaint of Universe Cyclonus as Strafe. From the coloring we can see that this is indeed G1 Strafe.

The images are from a Japanese blog called ganbo-store. Strafe is an exclusive that can be orderd by those owning a new Japanese credit from Ganbo Store.

HASBRO Answers Seibertron's Questions

Hasbro- The first question submissions for 2009 have been answered. Seems we get a repeat answer when we asked a question related to one of our previously submitted questions, and a very frank answer to one for you movie line collectors!

"1.) Can we expect more store exclusive Generation 1 repaints of movie figures like the new Corvette Sideswipe into Generation 1 colors? Any hints to drop for us on which characters will receive Generation 1 style repaints (Devastator?). Can we expect premium style repaints with the ROTF line of figures as well?


-Whenever we redeco a figure for a store exclusive, one of our first inclinations is to go back and see if there is a way to bring the figure closer to a classic character, especially if it apears unlikely that the figure will be released in those colors otherwise. With Revenge of the Fallen, there are quite a few characters to choose from that have some fairly obvious alternative color schemes that are on our short list of potential items. Premium items are also on the short list because we are are sometimes able to offer a higher number of paint applications on figures if they are offered as store exclusives. While we can't provide exact details on any upcoming G1-based or Premium figures, rest assured that we will be making them whenever they make sense.

2.) Recent confusion with IDW's and HASBRO's answers gives us conflicting information. Will IDW's character Drift be getting his own toy, or not? Would it be a part of UNIVERSE or some other special line? How about other comic original characters getting toys like Impactor or Jhiaxus, which are not repaints? In the back of the Transformers Spotlight Vol 2 Graphic Novel, there is a great design for Nova Prime, which could be made as a toy, any chance of it being made?

-Every year as we develop our toy line, we try to fit in characters that make sense for the brand. With that said, every character, new and old, are always up for disussion. We certainly would love to make a toy after IDW's Drift and will do our best ot fit him into the line at the right time.

3.) Will there be toys of these new Season 3 TF: Animated Characters? What of the rumor that Season 3 is the last season of Animated? Any hints on what is the next on tap after the ROTF line is done, with the supposed end to Transformers Animated?

-There will be new toys of season 3 characters throughout 2009. Unfortunately, we cannot speak to any rumors regarding the animated series at this time."


There you have it, answers to some of our very important questions. Sorry if yours was not submitted this time. Please be sure to re-submit a new question the next time we have the opportunity.

Seibertron.com member Prime Evil alerted us that a member of the Transformers Fansite hk-tf.com posted images of what seems to be a custom add-on set for the Energon Superion Maximus mold.

The set seems to consist of two feet and two sets of wrists with hands. Please note that it is unclear to us if this in fact a custom project to see mass production or just part of a kitbash but do know that we will keep you updated on this.

Hydrodive Bumblebee and Golfire grimlock are NOT cancelled?

TCC Online Store- Maybe the world of Transformers Animated is not coming to an end. Maybe it was just our collective downheartedness that we thought this might also be having probelms.

One of the signs of the end of Animated was the cancellation of the Voyager wave with Golfire Grimlock, and Hydrodive Bumblebee. This information came from BigBadToyStore.com.

But wait! The Transformers Collector's Club store has not taken its pre-orders down yet. In fact, it is still advertising the Wave in its pre-order in mastercollector, and also has the items on pre-order and expected to arrive on May 31st on the website.

You can see the listing at the TFCC club store here.

Is TFCC just behind the times? Did BBTS cancel too soon? Will we ever get a gold painted Grimlock or Bumblebee with diving sub?

The Botcon webpage has been updated with pictures of Landshark, who is a repaint of Energon Landmine with a more military-theme colour scheme.

Landshark doesn't know where he got his name from and he doesn't really care. Some bots tend to confuse it with Landmine, but once Landshark pulls his fist from their abdomen they don't seem to get it wrong anymore. Always the practical jokester and seen by his peers as a wise guy, he often makes light of even the most dramatic situations.

cnn.com- The recession is hitting everyone hard. Choices need to be made in families, and companies alike.

With the idea of competing for people's dollars becoming even more important, toy companies are returning to reliable, known brands...in other words its what all Transformers fans already know...nostalgia sells.

This short video is about the effects of the recession on the toy industry and what toy companies are doing to still compete for your dollars. Featured in it are brand names such as GI JOE, Barbie, and Transformers.

You can view the video here, and discuss how the recession and economy may (or may not) be effecting your spending habits.
