Continuing the trend of showing us everything but the main toy lines, fellow Transformers fansite Transformers Universe have taken pictures of the German Hasbro catalogue from the Nuremberg Toy Fair, and uploaded them to their Facebook page. You can check them all out mirrored below, but notable additions are the confirmation of some of the UK Toy Fair products, Transformers apparel (including a Lockdown hoodie), bedsheets, costumes and stationery.

UPDATE: Fellow Seibertronian Dead Metal has translated the German descriptions into English, copied below.

Inside cover:

I would say, this is actually the first official reveal of the main line. Yep, not very collector friendly. But cool for the kids and play time.

Well then... as one of the more outspoken critics AGAINST this new movie and the associated products that come with it, it will be my pleasure to mess with your heads and say (and this is in all honesty, no joke) that there are actually a few things from that catalog that I would consider getting. That Prime with the trailer that doubles as a display case being foremost among them.
I'm still not a fan of them over-simplifying the transformation process on this line. That's going to make the articulation and overall aesthetic of the figures suffer but I understand that most of the children out there wont care either way about such things so I'm not going to make a fuss over it. Let the kiddies have their fun with it while us "old school" collectors complain about not getting what we want out of the Generations line.

But see, that's the kind of criticism that works! It's constructed, polite, tries to work on both sides and most of all, not insulting anyone. :D

What a lot of us are growing tired of is the endless whining topped off with insults towards kids, parents, adults and a skewed sense of nostalgia and lack of perspective.

It's fine to complain (I've mostly stopped collecting new toys myself, and decided to look backwards instead), but please be respectful of other users, collectors and people who might enjoy these products.

According to this, there´s a "Mega Hero" toy that transforms and comes with a small Optimus. I wonder if that´s a big Grimlock and the tiny Optimus can actually ride him.

To me that´s awesome.

Some of these toys probably sound worse than they will actually look, I mean bot-shots are freakin' cool but I bet they didn't sound too good on paper back before we saw any.

I'm really hoping the new show coming will give us a decent 'normal' main line though. Quality and reduced plastic aside, most of Prid was a solid line of normal TF figures. Simplification isn't the problem. Animated had simple designs and toys, as did Beast wars and Unicron trilogy, and where it all started, the new mold G2 figures back in the 90's. They were fun TOYS without sacrificing anything. The movie designs are not simple friendly, so I guess 'gimmick' toys makes more sense. The new Leader Optimus doesn't seem right because it's a cheat shellformer because a complicated design is being shoe-horned into a simple toy. (I know, kids won't notice or care, fair play) It's simplicity isn't the problem by itself. No doubt any mainline AOE figs will be the same.

I say this, not because I have a sense of entitlement as an 'adult collector' (god knows the current generations figures and MP's have been more than enough) but because I want Transformers to be toys kids (and big kids) can enjoy, but still be what Transformers are/ were. I also kinda hate the distinction, or rather the need for it. Not to repeat myself but ANIMATED! If animated could do it then I'm sure hasbro could still do it now, is all I am saying. :)(again, I see why movie marketing is different and it naturally spawns this kind of merchandise)

Yeah, Rescue bots, bot shots and what we have on this list are the kid friendly end, yes MP's and (some) Generations are the adult friendly end, both are valid and needed but I guess I don't want to lose the middle ground. Generations Trailbreaker and Hoist are easy to do (accept the need to peg the arms together under the hood...yikes that gets annoying) are they really the kind of toys that would alienate kids and need to be labeled 'collector friendly'? Somehow it all seems to have gotten a bit out of hand. That's how it feels to me. A bit over hyped. On both ends.
I doubt I will have much interest in AoE product anyway, so I'm not 'moaning' because I will miss out. I didn't buy many from DOTM (Just the 3 leaders). I'll see the movie, enjoy it for what it is. If a good Grimlock toy surfaces I may not resist.
Hopefully this isn't read as movie hate or 'collector entitlement'. I come in peace, I really do.

However that bed spread...looks suspiciously classy enough to have on a 33 year old's bed and not seem too nerdy... :-?

why nobody is asking about the different color palet in the optimus costume/disguise, it is clearly the new design for optimus but with a red chest, and what appear to be red guards in his upper legs, because is not tfprime optimus because that design didnt had red feet nor the smoke stack on his back, the face mask is different too, it have more blue in it.

Haha, true, true. Though sadly I'm not lucky enough to be in such a place that that matters at the moment. :shock: Still, this is another area where kids shouldn't have all the fun; there must be husband and wife TF fan teams out there, surely? :P

Hey, my partner lives in Amsterdam at the moment, and we've been in a medium/long-distance relationship for two out of three years now - I still use a double bed!

But yeah, I have noticed that most novelty bedsheets are targeted at kids, and therefore single sets. WHAT ABOUT THE ADULT FANS? RUINED 5EVA!!11!!11!
