-Toyfare #140- Just released on Wednesday to comic book stores, Toyfare #140 has a few pages teasing upcoming Transformers ROTF movie toys, and movie plotlines. Containing interviews with movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, as well as, Hasbro senior design director for TF and GI JOE toy lines Aaron Archer, and Hasbro's marketing director, Greg Lombardo.

**You should note that there are a few movie spoilers, and confirmations of previous rumors ahead, so caution is advised if you want to be oblivious to movie information (good luck!).**



-MAJOR CHARACTER INFORMATION SPOILER! The Fallen character is an original member of the race, one of the famed original 13, similar it seems to his Dreamwave comics origin. He is credited with having split the Transformers race into Autobots and Decepticons, as is being hinted at in the new IDW Transformers movie prequel series, [i]Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Defiance. (Resize for information)

-The film's timeline is said to take place approximately one year after the original movie takes place.

-In the film, when Devastator makes his appearance you can expect him to be a whopping 100-120 feet tall.

-The Soundwave and Bumblebee preview toys will be released approximately two weeks before the rest of the line is to be released on May 30th.

-Soundwave's toy design is a combination of his movie design, and Hasbro's need for the toy to be a bit more basic. There is a reason for the way he is designed in the film, but that would be telling, which they are not.

-Pictures of the new ROTF leader class Optimus Prime toy adorn one of the magazine's covers, and is also shown inside along with the NEW Voyager Starscream toy.

-As we have seen, there will be more 'off-screen' characters included in the toy line than for the previous movie.

-A 'big ticket' deluxe sized item is hinted at, but no details are given. TOP SECRET.

-The first wave of characters includes: Sideswipe, Sideways, and more...

-Archer would like to see a Megan Fox Human Alliance set. It's on his famous 'wish list'.

-Robot Heroes will have better articulation

-Gravity bots are for young kids and convert automatically when picked up.

With the imminent release of Transformers Generations 09 volume 1, member vansch brings us a scan of the exclusive figure that will be released with volume 2, a "Crystal" Starscream.

1/2 crystal Henkei Starscream from TF Generation 09 Vol.2


The figure can be obtained with purchasing the book, then mailing in the attached form, with additional money. It is unlikely to see any release outside of Japan, however site sponsor BigBadToyStore.com is making available TF: Generations 2009 vol 1 and the Clear Mirage available so there is hope that they can do the same here.

This year's Shared Dairycon/Cybcon/DutchBotcon/Gamers Reunion/Autocon exclusive will be called "Ass-09"!

The "Automated Security Sentries zero-9" prototype testshot that provided our first peek at the figure was recently sold on Ebay. The figure is based off the Beast Machines Battle Unicorn figure.

The previously seen "Raging Red" Dairycon figure:
Dairycon Exclusive Figure's Name Revealed!
While another variant has appeared, the "Bitter Black" Cybcon figure:
Dairycon Exclusive Figure's Name Revealed!
Notice the lack of Red mane/leg detail, as well as the changes in the plastic (most noticeable in the figure's legs).

The character bio for Ass-09 can be found by following this link. Keep an eye out for information regarding the other Dairycon exclusives (COMING SOON!!!!)

Finally, pre-registration for Dairycon 2009 is closing March 1st! While the con is free to attend, you MUST pre-register. No walk-ins. So pre-register soon if you plan to come!

-------------------------------------------

Here's "Assinine"'s tech spec from http://www.geocities.com/fredsworkshop/assinine.html:

Allegiance: Dairycon
Name: Assinine (Ass-09)
Function: Donkey of the Apocolypse


Quote:"My Fellow Cybertonians..."

Profile: he's a liberal tree-hugging hippie donkey. So liberal that he gives Beachcomber the creeps. Believes that the Decepticons aren't evil, just "misunderstood". Believes that all vehicle alt-mode transformers should be forced to take on Beast modes to keep from emitting greenhouse gases.

Abilities: Like all the Automated Security Sentries, A.S.S.-09 comes equipped with a stunwhip, which renders enemies unconscious without permanently damaging them. Armored body in beastmode able to withstand most heavy artillary assaults; hooves can kick a hole thru solid steel or even knock a larger Transformer off his wheels.

Weaknesses: Philosophical differences with other Dairycons often cause Ass-09 to be left behind during missions. He has a distinct lack of offensive weaponry in either mode. His refusal to use his abilities often cost him considerably. Constant speeches about protecting the environment have actually caused some Autobots to switch sides in the conflict.

Secondary manufacturer add-on, weapons, and upgrade kits have become all of the rage this year, but are really nothing new to collectors of other lines like G.I. JOE, and Star Wars.

With fantastic toys, we want fantastic gear to upgrade these toys. Thus, we see the Cliffjumper upgrade, the City Commander Set, and Shadow Commander sets released. We drool over the pictures of the upcoming 'Gear of War' set, and the iGear Autoscout. We enjoy having a Roller for our Masterpiece Prime trailer, and more!

The creativity and the desire to bring what the fans want make these companies special, but unfortunately sometimes, we need to understand that the quality may not live up to the expectation due to the size of the company making the secondary products and the lack of much of what the larger toy companies have.

So a little reminder, a little warning to us all that with the best intentions, things do not always work out.

Here we have an example. The TCP-001A City Commander Parts set by SGCollect, released this week. A custom upgrade for a custom upgrade (City Commander set), but unfortunately it seems that the quality did not live up to the expectation, at least in one purchaser's case.

First shown here, the upgrade set looked to have a fantastic new head sculpt to add to the City Commander set, as well as, the shoulder rockets, and G1 toy accurate rifle.

Re: TCP-001A Custom City Commander Parts Released

Purchasers have been disappointed to find that their sets may not live up to what we saw initially. Just check out the images of a purchased set below.

Re: TCP-001A Custom City Commander Parts Released

So while we applaud the small groups for trying to please the fans, we also want you to know that, sometimes the best plans do not turn out as desired, and so be careful when purchasing secondary add-on sets. Read reviews, be patient, and wisely spend your hard earned dollars on your beloved upgrades.

And by the way, these sets are available for purchase on eBay. You can check out the disappointed purchaser's thread here.

HASBRO’S TRANSFORMERS BRAND CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE” 2009 TRANSFORMERS Universe and Animated Toy Lines Combine Brand’s Rich Heritage With “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE” Fun for Fans of All Ages

PAWTUCKET, R.I., (February 2009) – Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) revolutionized the action figure category 25 years ago with the launch of the MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE toys known as TRANSFORMERS. And while the TRANSFORMERS brand 25th anniversary celebration reaches its zenith on June 26, 2009 with the release of the action-packed movie TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, the brand has even more excitement to offer fans beyond the new film, including its TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE and TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED toy lines.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, Hasbro is “rolling out” dozens of TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toys that showcase the innovation and depth that have been synonymous with the toy line since its inception. Featuring numerous styles and varying levels of complexity, Hasbro’s 2009 TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toy line will appeal to a growing fan base that – after 25 years – spans multiple generations. While the toy line will include popular characters kids will recognize from current and recent entertainment, the line also pays homage to the brand’s roots with many classic ‘bots from its extensive stories and unique mythology.

Of course, much of TRANSFORMERS’ popularity remains rooted in its origin: over-the-top animation that shows the ongoing feud between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS. Launched last year, Cartoon Network’s new TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED series continues the animation tradition with fantastic storylines that feature favorite characters like OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE and even MEGATRON. The new TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED line of toys lets kids experience the adventure in the playroom as they recreate scenes from the weekly show using a number of exciting, new action figures.

For the more mature fans who want to commemorate the 25th anniversary of TRANSFORMERS, Hasbro is expanding its popular line of MIGHTY MUGGS vinyl collectibles to include – for the first time – TRANSFORMERS characters such as OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON and several of their robotic cohorts.

First introduced in 1984 by Hasbro and Takara as a toy line, TRANSFORMERS has become a global entertainment property inspiring comic books, video games, animated series, a blockbuster movie and even a convention dedicated to TRANSFORMERS collectors. Yet its popularity remains rooted in its original premise – toys that change from robots into every imaginable kind of vehicle.
