Some bad news for those looking forward to the upcoming Transformers: Animated Toyline.

According to a TFW2005 member who has received his December/January Collectors Club Magazine, the Animated Toyline will not be appearing on shelves around February or March, but instead will be appearing around June 2008, with a full Release by August 2008. No reasons as to why are given.

From the same source, the rumoured "Stealth Bumblebee" looks like he will be getting a release, with an inverted colour scheme (black with yellow stripes) and will also feature his Battle Mask as a new head.

Finally the 4th Club Exclusive figure has been announced: Topspin will be a redeco of the helicopter mold from the Energon Bruticus Maximus team.

Transformers writer Simon Furman has updated his blog yet again. This time he reports on the release a new guide to the Live Action Transformers movie, released by Haynes Publishing. The following has been taken directly from the blog.

"Out now, published by Haynes Publishing, is an brand-spanking-new guide to the live-action Transformers movie (featuring ALL the Autobots and Decepticons and a goodly number of the human cast too!). Top Trumps Transformers draws its inspiration from the recent Top Trumps deck of Transformers battle cards, but goes much, much further. For the in-depth lowdown on everyone from Optimus Prime to Starscream to Agent Simmons, Top Trumps Transformers really does have it all. This pocket-sized book is packed to rafters with illustrations, profiles, and detailed specs, making it the first truly comprehensive guide to the movie (soon to be released on DVD). It’s written by myself, and retails (considering everything that’s packed into its 192-pages) at the staggeringly low price of just £4.99/$9.95!".
