Not much to say in this news post other than the next Club exclusive figure along the lines of Astrotrain, Airrazor, Nightbeat and the Seacons will be none other than PUNCH/COUNTERPUNCH which will utilize the Universe Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mold. For those of you who don't know who this character is, check out the Seibertron.com gallery of the original G1 Punch/Counterpunch figure by clicking here.

Hasbro had the holy grail of the Transformers hobby on display for all to see in their massive Transformers display area this year. G1 Unicron was on display not just in robot mode, but also in planet mode as well which begs the question: "just how many of these things are there?" G1 Unicron was never made and the prototype has only been seen a few times before. Check out G1 Unicron in all of his round glory here.

Seibertron.com was present for the Botcon 2009 Transformers Revenge of the Fallen question and answer session held with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Like usual the session wasn't a ground breaking spoiler-thon, but some bits of info were noteworthy.

The first part of the session was covering the writers strike and all the work that was done beforehand. Orci and Kurtzman came up with a 20 page outline of the sequel literally just before the deadline. The writers claim that they were locked in a hotel room and had to script ready for filming four months after the strike concluded.

The second part was mainly question and answer with alot of questions that did and did not have to do with ROTF. We learned that Shia LaBeouf's bandaged hand will not appear in the film until the third act. The writers stated that the scene which was done to create the reason for the bandaged hand was very hard to do.

The writers stated that they would not rule out the use of Unicron or Primus in a future installement of the movie franchise. When asked about the Matrix of Leadership, they responded with "That's a very good question" followed by laughter. The gestalts and combiners will appear unexpectedly, there was no build up to the appearance of the two.

Also mentioned were the twins, Skids and Mudflap, as an ice cream truck. It was said that they are basically comic relief and that the ice cream truck itself plays a key plot point in the movie.

In regards to HASBRO, the writers said they were allowed to do what they wanted to in the film and that the representatives of HASBRO gave only a few suggestions as to the characters and how the film would play out. HASBRO did give the duo an abundance of information including a session of "Transformers school" similiar to what Director Michael Bay went through before taking on the role of directing the film. The writers did state that they were familiar with the Transformers franchise from childhood but the info that was given by HASBRO gave them key character development points and helped with the direction of the film.

Alot of the characters you'll see in the film are ones that Orci and Kurtzman wanted in the original film that didn't make it.

When asked whether they liked Transformers or Star Trek better, the response was "Well you have to wait for Transformers 3: Megatron Vs. The Enterprise" again followed by laughter.

More details and pictures from the panel to come. Keep your optics locked right here at Seibertron.com.
