Hasbro Responds RE: Universe Cyclonus & Ironhide

Hasbro has responded to questions posed over at the IDW forums and some VERY interesting answers have been provided. Most importantly that Cyclonus will be much closer to his proto-type purple and that a running change for Ironhide is in store.

Check out the thread here:
http://forum.idwpublishing.com/viewtopi ... 67a21ffefa

or take a read here:
1.) Any chance of seeing Universe 2.0 Voyager Onslaught remolded/recolored into G1 Hardhead?

1) I'd say that's a good possibility for a repaint either for our main line or an exclusive. But when ever possible, I try to offer more than just a straight repaint, such as a new head or weapon. So I might have to sketch up some options and see just what I can come up with.

2.) Why did you choose that particular deco for Universe 2.0 Deluxe Cyclonus and Nightstick, which differs radically from the prototype? Many fans liked the purple prototype.

2) Sometimes test shots come in and all of the molds are not cast in the correct colors. But that's why test shots exist, so that we can catch those problems before the toy is produced. In this example, an image of a Cyclonus testshot was released and fans had issues. But rest assured, the mold is going to remain purple and match the initial prototype image.

3.) And chance for new-mold Universe 2.0 combiners teams/gestalts?

3) The typical gestalts require a price point higher than any of the ones we have established in the short-term in Universe, so we won't be tooling up any new Universe gestalt molds for 2009. But we really like the combiner idea and would like to add some new combiner play in the relative near future (no specific plans or line decided - we are talking about it).

4.) Why the baby blue for Universe 2.0 Ironhide's face? It was originally silver, which was correct. It changed from proto to production to baby-blue. Ironically Robot Heroes Ironhide came out at the same time, he had the correct silver face. Why the difference?

4) It's supposed to be silver. When I last saw the final paint on the figure it was silver. But somehow in the development process, someone somewhere picked up a blue brush instead of the silver one. We are currently making a "running change" on the face so future Ironhides will
be correct.

5.) Will we see more Headmasters toys in Universe 2.0? If so, will they be based on IDW Headmasters? How about a Sunstreaker with headmaster Hunter?

5) I hope we'll be seeing more Headmasters in the future for Universe. If we continue to celebrate all of the different eras of Transformers there will certainly be some more headmasters to redesign. I'm not too sure about seeing a Sunstreaker with Hunter...we had already done a Sunstreaker in Deluxe so having another Sunstreaker offered again just a year later might be tough. But we'll try to get some fun stuff in the line for you guys.

An auction on eBay featuring Cyclonus has popped up.

But buyer beware as this is most likely a stolen figure from the factory or a sample that is not for sale, since this figure has not been released yet. Also note that this auction is note showing you the actual image. Instead it is using a TFormers gallery image. Since the seller is located in China this image has most likely been infringed upon as well.

You can view the item http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574891718&toolid=10001&campid=5336631220&customid=transformers&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2FTransformers-Univer%2520...%25200286579994">here. Remember to play it safe when using eBay for pre-released figures.

Entertainment Earth has some new biographies on their site for upcoming Animated and Universe figures.

Atomic Lugnut

* Fancy evil colors!
* Bigtime action and excitement with these out-of-this-world figures!
* From the hit Cartoon Network series.

What Lugnut lacks in brains, he makes up for in strength and loyalty. His mega-punch can kill anything, plus he's able to get from anywhere to anywhere in seconds with his speedy bomber mode. This powerful plane transforms into Decepticon warrior and back again, and he'll crush anyone or anything in pursuit of the AllSpark for Megatron. Don't turn your back on this guy!

Roadbuster Ultra Magnus

* Now in minty green flavor!
* Bigtime action and excitement with these out-of-this-world figures!
* From the hit Cartoon Network series.

The supreme leader of all Autobots is here, now in a green and yellow color! What's more, now he's got the time to deal with your problems. As the head of the Cybertron Elite Guard, he's not afraid to get his hands dirty, even if some of his men won't touch these strange, fleshy creatures called "humans." Anything that crosses his path is going to have to face his incredible power and mighty hammer! In robot mode, Ultra Magnus measures over 10-inches tall and is ready to lay waste to any forces who dare oppose him. He features electronic lights and sounds, too!

Universe Inferno

* Big fire truck becomes an awesome robot!
* He's here to save the day!
* Hose shoots plastic "water" missile!

Make way for the Autobot fire department! One of Cybertron's finest, Inferno is here to help put a stop to fires caused by Decepticons. His cannon shoots out water (actually plastic) blasts, plus he's specially armored to be able to survive intense heat. (Just ask his girlfriend, Firestar.) Bring home this warrior for good today!

Universe Vector Prime

* An emissary of Primus!
* Includes Mini-Con partner!
* Awesome sword!

One of the heralds of Primus is here! Based on his numerous appearances in comics and cartoons, Vector Prime is one tough character. Transforming from an intergalactic space ship to a robot and back again, this 10-inch tall warrior doesn't go into battle alone. His companion Safeguard changes from a tiny starfighter to a robot, and can even become an arm-mounted weapon for Vector Prime! Relive the battle between good and evil with this awesome Autobot!

BigBadToyStore.com- Guess who? And Guess What?

If you guessed another pre-order by site sponsor BigBadToyStore.com then you would be correct.

A few weeks back we saw some nice pictures of a toy show where FansProject were showing off their Ultra Magnus City Commander armor, and also a couple of their own favorites, a dark NEMESIS version of the trailer, and a Diaclone Powered Convoy colored version.

I think FansProject was reading our thread here, because many of us wished they would produce one that we could order and looky at what shows up-- a pre-order for Shadow Commander Trailer Set!!! Shadow Commander is limited to 1/2 the number of sets they made of the regular City Commander Set, and is priced at $89.99 set for a late December arrival.

This set is meant to go with the SDCC exclusive Nemesis Prime, a black, grey, and teal repaint of the Classic Optimus Prime mold.

Thank you FansProject!!!
