Seibertron.com was in attendace for Hasbro's Transformers panel at Toy Fair 2010 and was taking frantic notes during the presentation. What was revealed and discussed? We have everything from War for Cybertron to Revenge of the Fallen to the new line name: Generations!
Hasbro's Plans in General
--Almost all of Activision's War for Cybertron line is proprietary, which means that Activision owns most, if not all, the products
--Spring 2010 - Hasbro will continue to market the ROTF line into the summer
--Fall 2010 - Hasbro will be taking a step back in the interim between ROTF and Transformers 3. They will focus on Transformers in general, and not a specific line such as Animated, ROTF or Universe. Expect fewer Transformers during this time.
-- There will be a video game on Transformers.com to mark the 'Transformers - Hunt for the Decepticons' brand. There will be specially marked packages with codes that will let you go in the mainframe and detect where a Decepticon is coming from. New codes let you battle new Decepticons, joining the Autobot alliance. All assortments will have codes, come in gold package with 'Hunt for Decepticons'
Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe class

The folks at The Private Universe, a British Toy/Comic Website also sharing their 10th Anniversary this year with us, has previewed some of the Transformers toys revealed at the UK Toyfair. Below you can see an advertisement from the Toyfair and what the Private Universe can share with us about the Transformers display.
I was taken round by a nice lady. Movie stuff on display including Leader Starscream and Bludgeon. Game tie-in figures from War on Cybertron were on the stand - present were Prime and Bumblebee, Deluxe size is the only price point for this range. Both were in Cybertron vehicle mode.
Picture shows Power Core Combiners. She described them as 5 legend sized figures that combine. They look great.
Battle Ops Bumblebee on show - Price between Leader and Supreme points - £60ish - Looked cool.
RPMs were a surprise, the hot wheel sized cars. New higher price point called Stealth Force. The cars transformed into a battle mode with gun etc, poping out. The Prime was moterized with sound effects. I was told Bay liked this and is planning on using the idea.
As you can tell from the advertisement, we're getting Voyager Seaspray, Movie Deluxe Ironhide, the previously revealed Battle Ops Bumblebee, and Power Core Combiners - which look to include a combiner in the form of Bruticus.
You can check out the article at the Private Universe. If you're also a fan of any other Hasbro related figures, you'll be quite intrigued to take a look!

YouTube member SlideToPlay has gotten ahold of the upcoming mobile application game Transformers G1 Awakenings for the iPhone, that we originally reported here, and has posted a video of it.
For the most part, the gameplay remains the same as the original release intended for select mobile phones that we reported on here. Depending on which type of phone you had, the graphics and touch screen response to the iPhone version appears to be a nice upgrade. More details on the game as they become available.
