Did Transtech make it to the prototype stage?

For those who don´t know, Transtech was supposed to be a followup to Beast Machines. The series would have continued along the Beast/Vehicle/Robot theme. However, the idea was scrapped, and replaced with Armada (and RiD as a filler). So there, you´re all caught up. For years, we´ve been told that the line was cancelled before any prototypes were even made. With no evidence to the contrary, this generally believed by the fandom at large. But now, we have reason to believe that at least some of the figures made it to the prototype stages. The Energon Pub members are sure to have plenty to say about this, why not check it out?

The Smooth One is prohibited from displaying pictures of the combined form of Energon Optimus Prime. He´s free to describe the figure though, so read on!

The torso and head of this figure resemble God Ginrai. It has a white chest with 2 windows and a grill. The head has a mouth molded into the faceplate (like Optimus Primal) and has several tubes on its head that make it look like Optimus went out and got a perm.

The body parts are multi-colored and are a blue jet-like machine for the right arm, a yellow drill for the right arm and hand, an orange firetruck for the right leg*, and a white lion for the left leg (which makes it look even MORE Voltron-like.

Believe it or not, all of these different devices come together to make one very well proportioned robot. It looks to be one of the more posable figures we´ve seen in recent years.

The Energon Pub would be a perfect place to discuss this figure and get more information on its upcoming release.

*Note to Hasbro: STOP WITH THE MULTI-COLORED FIRETRUCKS!!!

I´ve recieved word that then next series of TRU exclusive Hasbro Reissues will be Grapple and Smokescreen. The date for their release is rumored to be sometime in November. As with everything else on this page, this is just a rumor and will maintain "Rumor Status" until you see it on the main page.

Actually, there are a LOT of familiar G1 names in Energon; Optimus Prime, Jetfire, Megatron, Galvatron, Scorponok, and the list goes on. However, this will be the return of a name made famous in Transformers: The Movie. A name that´s been voiced by such actors as Hiroya Ishimaru, Judd Nelson, Richard Gautier, and
Ted Schwartz. A name who´s owner assumed the role of leader when the Autobots needed one most. The name in question: Rodimus Prime. By eye-witness accounts, the character will still look very much like his G1 counterpart, but will be a combiner like most of the Energon Autobots.

This just in from Protoform X over at thetransformers.net, With the re-release of Six Knight, Takara have finally released all of the G1 Micromaster gestalts - except one. This one has now been announced. No date has been set yet, but the almightly Landcross is set for reissue. The Landcross team consists of six Micromasters, each with their own accessory. Also any two can combine to form a larger robot, a la Armada Sideways´ Minicons, but each component can form either the top or bottom. Also, all six can combine to form Landcross. Including the original six robots, that´s 37 figures in one!

Some Very Interesting Dreamwave Rumors

Today, the Rumor Page will spotlight some very interesting rumors centering around Dreamwave and their upcoming projects.
As previously reported here on the Rumor Page, some Japanese TF Characters have an excellent chance of appearing in the ongoing Generation 1 comic. Characters like Overlord have been discussed.

There´s another TF comic in the works that nobody outside of Dreamwave knows about. There´s no furthur hard info, but speculation is that it would involve the Alternators (but that´s not likely).
Dreamwave may help with the designs for the upcoming (possible for 2005) live action Transformers movie. Will Prime have those white outlines around his windshields in the movie? We´ll have to wait and see...
2004 will have a Beast Wars mini-series. Brad Mick will help with the storyline but will probably not actually write for the series. No word yet on if they´ll use the Cartoon or the Toys as the basis for the artword. (Note to Dreamwave: use the Cartoon!)

Fact? Hopefully. Fiction? Possibly. Interesting? Definately!

Is Energon Starscream a Remolded Smokejumper?

By now, I´m sure many of you have seen the upcoming Energon Starscream figure. Well, I´ve noticed that there´s a good chunk of you that believe that this piece is nothing more than a remolded Smokejumper (AKA G2 Darkwind, AKA BWII Starscream, AKA G2 ATB Starscream). This rumor is simply 100% false. While they do share the same transformation (which is a completely seperate complaint) the two figures do not share even one identical piece. Besides that, the Energon Starscream figure is much larger than Smokejumper (or whatever name you want to call it).

File this under the "Wow, I really hope this ISN´T true" category.
I´ve had reports coming in from various sources that tell me that the Energon version of Unicron will be nothing more than a black repaint. These same sources inform me that the prototype of this figure is nearly 100% black (which would almost have to change. Hasbro never releases completely monotone figures). Then again, Hasbro doesn´t usually do black repaints either.

Have you been holding off on the Hasbro reissues because of their cosmetic changes? Changes such as the lack of chrome or the shortening of missles? Well, at OTFCC Seibertron.com staff members had the opportunity to check out these upcoming reissues. The chrome is back, and the only possible changes made would be the removal of the spring loaded missle launchers. On display, these figures will display just the same as expensive originals. This definately seems to be the series you purists have been demanding. And, if their high cost is a problem, check out this awesome deal at Action-HQ.com exclusively for Seibertron.com readers!
