We're used to having toys revealed by our site sponsors or Transformers insiders overseas, but on Hasbro's own website? The watchful eye of a member over at TFW2005 has found instructions for two unannounced Scout versus packs on Hasbro's website. These four scout repaints are Blue Maximus, a repaint of of Ransack, Crosshairs, a repaint of Rollbar, Drydock, a repaint of Depthcharge, and Undertow, a repaint of Cybertron Shortround. Since instructions are in black and white, their color schemes aren't exactly revealed. Check the four Scouts in the images below!

More official images have found their way into the product pages of Entertainment Earth. HFTD Wave 4 is composed of three figures we've seen already, Battle Blade Bumblebee, Ironhide, and Tuner Skids (who will be in Wave 2). However two new repaints join them. One is Rescue Ratchet, a repaint of Deluxe Ratchet in colors we've seen before. The other is Axor, the first repaint of Deluxe Movie Lockdown. Check out the listing below!

Hunt for the Decepticons Deluxe Wave 4
They come from Cybertron to fight it out on Earth! These Autobots and Decepticons have upgraded themselves with the latest gear to crush one another-- and maybe us too! This case includes 8 individually packaged robots, including:

Seibertron member Diem was fortunate enough to attend the final day of Tokyo Toy Show 2010. Here's what he has to say about the event:

I was worried that by the final day of the Tokyo Toy Show there would be nothing left to see. Thankfully, the place was still vibrant and exciting, albeit crowded and humid.

Image

Tokyo Big Sight, the mysterious upside-down multi-pyramid of a building in which many anime, cosplay and toy conventions are held.

Image

As you can see, it was pretty crowded. Even at the very end of the event, people were walking around with filled bags and tired families.

Image

The outside of the TakaraTomy area was pretty Transformer-free, sadly.

Image

Elite Guard Prowls were for sale at the event, but were selling out incredibly quickly. The Dreadwing and Smokescreen set had already sold out!

Image

The next wave of Takara Animated figures were already up for sale, a week ahead of their store date. The Sons of Cybertron sets were unfortunately not present.

Image

Revenge Of The Fallen Dead End was a limited edition figure for Japanese customers of ToyHobby last year. The unsold figures were being sold at the event.

Image

There was an excellent Optimus Prime costumed guy wandering around and taking photos with kids.

Image

We've already seen pictures of the Animated display and 2010 campaign figures. The colours on Takara Rodimus looked really, really nice.

Image

Transformers: The Arcade Game(s)

Image

Vol.4 of Takara's EZ Collection series was also available there. The series has some very attractive boxart

Image

We'll be posting more about this series soon.

Image

This leaflet was being given out featuring all the latest Takara Animated figures.

Image

It appears to be Leader Class Megatron's in-package leaflet.

Image

The other leaflet included various TakaraTomy products; this was the only Transformers-related item in there.

Well, that was about it for the Tokyo Toy Show. It was interesting to see this stuff first-hand and it's good to know that TakaraTomy are still pushing Animated hard.

Hasbro's official website for Transformers has seen a little make over recently, for those who care. Previously the website had been designed around Revenge of The Fallen, now more around the new toys hitting retail shelves around the globe. Check out what's new, including the Transformers Hall of Fame and a section dedicated to the new game, War for Cybertron, by clicking here.

Hasbro and CakeMix Studios revealed a ton of information about the upcoming Transformers: PRIME series that will air later this fall on The Hub. The following information are the notes I took throughout the duration of their panel. Looks like some great stuff. Hope you guys are as excited as I am!

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


Full CG show (computer animation cartoon)
Movie set the bar for Autobot - Decepticon action
Crazy awesome action
Amazed at what they have in the show
Level of CG never been attempted for TV
Show picks up on Earth
Bots and Cons have been living on Earth for a while
Group of Autobots stayed behind
Some have left
Cybertron is a bit of a husk
Decepticon activity is at a minimum
Decepticons return
Optimus Prime is leading the Autobots
Megatron returns
Group of Autobots: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee (motorcycle), Bulkhead, Ratchet, Cliffjumper
Group of Decepticons: Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave
Exploring the characters in new and different ways
People behind the show really do get it
Currently working on the last few scripts of the first season
26 episodes initially

CakeMix Studios
Peter Cullen and Frank Welker as voice actors
Doing a more "softer, evil side" voice for Megatron
Cullen: privilege to work with Welker
Showed video clip of Cullen and Welker talking about each other, how great it is to work with each other again, and them doing a recording session together. Pretty awesome.

Megatron has some classic elements to his look. Bucket head, arm cannon. G1 is biggest reference.
Prime looks like a cross between movie prime and WFC Prime.

Can't reveal other voice actors at this time.


Megatron transforms into a jet. He is not an Earth vehicle. Very space age looking jet. Cybertronian technology. Lot of fire power.

Goal is around 65 episodes to offset the cost of creating the CG models
Really focused on the G1 point of view
If you're a fan of TFA or Beast Wars, there might be some nods to those series in first season but focus is G1

Not sure what it will air on internationally and Canada

Wouldn't answer questions about Transformers Prime toys.

Yes there will be humans. Show is bot-centric however.
Alluded to there being a macguffin

Optimus Prime transforms into a aemi-truck similar to the movie
Bumblebee transforms into a Camaro looking car
Megatron transforms into a jet similar to the 1st movie jet

Look of the robots reminds me of the movie, but stylized (ala the Bumblebee images we've already seen)

Bulkhead's alt mode pulls from the "lore". Assuming he will have a mode similar to his TFA self.
Arcee will have one bot humanoid mode. Will NOT be like ROTF version.
Cliffjumper will have his own bot mode. Not a Bumblebee repaint

Susan Blu was directing Welker and Cullen in video they showed us. Could she be Arcee?

The Hub channel debuts 10-10-10 (October 10th, 2010). Transformers: Prime might not initially debut with the channel and might be a month or two behind the channel's launch.

That's it! On to the Hasbro Marketing Review and Q&A panel that all of you are anxiously waiting for.

A rather peculiar Transformer has fallen into the hands of an ACToys.net member. We've had rumors of an upcoming three-pack, repaints of Classics Deluxe Rodimus, Universe Deluxe Galvatron and Universe Deluxe Cyclonus. Some have said that it will be a Target exclusive, while ACToys.net member 达闻西 claims that this figure is part of a 2010 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive. Only time will tell - so for now check out the images below, and our Transformers Toys section for other toy related news. One thing's for certain, this is likely not to be the Rodimus from the 'Sons of Cybertron' set!
