These items, are Hasbrotoyshop exclusives. According to the website, these items still have the ship date as the 23rd-26th (standard), but these e-mails may suggest that we may start seeing them sooner than that.

More proof of the shipping soon is that credit cards are being charged and bank accounts withdrawn from.

Trying to get information on the next Botcon has been harder than trying to pull healthy teeth, but we finally get a little hint of what we can expect at the Transformers Club's official event.

According to the latest issue of the Transformers Club Magazine, Brian Savage tells us that three of the Botcon exclusive figures will have remolded heads. As to the who, what, where and when, no word has been mentioned as of yet. This number is one short of the total exclusive figures, which had four remolded heads in Shattered Glass Goldbug, Blurr, Megatron and Jazz/Richochet.

Complete details of the Club exclusive magazine are only available to recipients, and in order to receive it you gotta be a member. Sign up by visiting the TFCC Homepage and don't forget we have an exclusive, ongoing, question and answer thread dedicated to the TFCC here.

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)
