Thanks to Seibertron.com member Meister79 for sharing a new product page from his contact in Hasbro Malaysia about the Japanese line Transformers United. (United being the joint line of Generations and RTS). Here is what he said:

I just wanted to share an excerpt of an email I received from a Hasbro Malaysia representative for preorders of Takara Transformers United toys.
Lots of interesting stuff, in particular UN-22 Char. Char was the G1 Japanese name for Kup. So he is more or less confirmed. Furthermore, UN-19 is Ramble & Frenzy! UN-18 is Wheeljack!

Interesting to note is that "Ramble & Frenzy" are the same price as Lugnut, so it can be assumed that this is a two pack of figures sold at the Voyager Price point. Whether they are Scouts, Deluxe, or even crazy huge Voyagers has yet to be seen. It's a pretty safe bet however that these two figures are based on their War For Cybertron characters.

You think Wheeljack is a repaint of Tracks or will he be a new mold?

What about all the other figures we know about in the Generations line?

Just click "Discuss This Topic" above and get swept away in the conversation!

I actually wonder if the Gen Tracks mold will be repainted, alternately transformed, and given a new head to get Wheeljack.

I'll be disappointed if F/R are the WFC versions, but the probably will be. Oh well, least we're getting them.

Happy to hear about Wheeljack.

Wishing no disprespect to the original poster, why would Hasbro be soliciting pre-orders for Takara products?

There are also a lot of missing numbers, who are TFU-13, 15, 20, 21, 24 & 25 and why aren't they on the list to be ordered?

Also TFU-19 (Frenzy and Rumble) are supposed to be released after TFU-22 (Kup/Char)?

Takara have never released out of numerical order to my knowledge.

All I'm saying is this brings more questions than it does answers :???:

Really glad there is confirmation on Kup. I've really grown to like him due to IDW's comics.

I've never played the game so I don't know what WFC Rumble/Frenzy look like. I can't wait for all of this.

Here are some pics


Frenzy



Rumble

Yes Frenzy is red and Rumble is Blue


Also laserbeak for anyone's enjoyment


Looking really foward to this series especially Kup, Frenzy and Rumble, Wheeljack, Tracks and Blurr.
It sorta appears generations is the "fans" toy line. Perhaps HasTak will jump aboard the fembot train and release some awesome fembots!

Actually Hasbro wouldn't even have to repaint it just re-issue it as Wheeljack.

Kup - Awesome
Wheeljack - Awesome
Rumble/Frenzy - Also awesome.

I'm surprised no one's commented on the practice of releasing two repaints in the same box for more money. It's actually kinda genius.

Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has got you covered. Preorders are open for the first 22 figures from the line!

Nice. I only did Voyager Megs(cause I never got Classics or Henkei) and Frenzy and Rumble.

Who'd you go for?

All of them?!

I figure it's better to have a preorder now, and cancel it later when I see the deco isn't much different from Hasbro's. I definitely want the darker Universe Cyb Megs, and am strongly considering the gun-mode Megs. I really want to see the real versions of Drift, Straxus, and so on.

Here in Malaysia, Hasbro Malaysia is the sole distributor of the TRANSFORMERS brand, they import all Transformers toys, whether made by Hasbro or Takara. And they have been doing so for years. We get all our Masterpieces, Henkeis, Alternities, Disney Labels, etc from Hasbro Malaysia.
I can't answer your other questions with any kind of authority, but if you look at the item numbers in the first column, they are arranged in ascending order. I think the list is arranged according to that number rather than the toys' actual series number or release date.
