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.

Here are some pics

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.

Ready for some Transformers United preorders? Dying to get your hands on a shiny version of the rumored Kup, Rumble, Frenzy, or Wheeljack?

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

Seibertron.com is your ultimate Transformers resource!

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.

Why do I get the feeling that Kup will be a repaint and retool of Perceptor?
Re: New Transformers United Listings: Wheeljack, Kup, Rumble & Frenzy (1132943)
Posted by Mkall on October 8th, 2010 @ 9:33am CDT
And I've preordered most of it. I'll probably cancel some as the Universe preorders come available (Universe Voyagers, where are you?), but it's just nice to know I have the figs if I need them.

repaint of preceptor is supposed to be reflector or one of the parts of him.

on another note who are

UN-16 Autobot Tobura
&
UN-19 Hoilgaru

???

*edit - nevermind saw somewhere tobura is likely wheeljack and holigaru is the reflector repaint of perceptor.

Wow, this is a real surpirse, especially since usually he hear about this stuff from Hasbro first :shock:

While I am exceedingly excited for the Wheeljack, Kup and R+F, these prices are way out of my league. I hope Hasbro releases more info on them soon with some pics maybe.

$31.99 for Japanese deluxes at BBTS? Ouch. I wonder if I should take my chances and get my WFC Prime & Soundwave elsewhere.

Now that I know who is after UN-20.

UN-21 is Scourge
UN-22 is G2 Prime

http://snakas.blog95.fc2.com/blog-entry-1445.html

I wonder if Blurr, and Skullgrin will be released by Takara but with knowing that they are not big on repaints who knows. Also, where is Thunderwing?

Edit:

Never mind didn't see the second page at the bottom on BBTS site. 8-}

preordered both primes, kup, bumblebee, and wreck-gar. Also prob will cancel some if I don't like the pics or don't have the money in the budget XD but like Mkall i am glad I preordered them if i need to get them.

But December/Jan is a big ouch for me. These figs along with Tracks, Protector set, and Masterpiece Hot Rod xP. Time to get a second job maybe lol.

But damn why do they have to be $32 a piece O.o

Oh also speculation abounds that one of the unknown figures is either Arcee or Springer to close in to finishing off the Original movie characters.

OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD!

Wheeljack is one of my favourite TFs ever, it's great to see him getting a toy again. I was quite happy with Device Label Frenzy and Rumble, but I'll probably get these anyway. I'll pass on Kup - I'm only collecting pre-1986 G1 characters.

If they have a Perceptor retool as Trailbreaker, this'll be my perfect toyline. Of course, he's already being tooled into Reflector, but who cares!

Posted by Primacron's Little Helper on October 8th, 2010 @ 11:18am CDT
Awesome!!!

Hasbro/Takara are really delivering.

I'm still of the opinion Wheeljack will be a Tracks repaint, probably with the lower legs rotated for the transformation.

Even I'm stumped. Then again, BBTS has a knack for poor transliteration and downright wrong reading. For instance, Hoilgaru I believe is actually "Hoiljyaku", or Wheeljack. Tobura is anyone's guess, but judging from the price he is a Deluxe...

So can I assume that these new listings will be released under the 'generations/reveal the shield' lines by Hasbro in the near future? Those prices are pretty steep to commit to when no images are available, no matter how badly I want to get them. =P~ (and trust me, I want them all... right now) My wallet is just a little too strained from all the wicked good releases this year and paying half the price for a domestic release just seems more appealing.

This is true but whats also quite appealing is not having to worry about pre-ordering them when all the pics are released and they look amazing. I did $160 worth And i do agree a darker cyb megatron is quite appealing but seeing as how i already got my hasbro version i am fine with it :)

Well, my decision on whether to pay $32 for Takara WFC Megatron or $16 for Hasbro's was made for me... found him at TRU today and decided shiny paint is not worth another $16, so I bought him.

What's the deal with BBTS prices lately? Import deluxes went from $24-25$ to $32 in about a year... it's getting a little ridiculous. Are the Japanese prices actually increasing, or is it just BBTS?

Rumble and frenzy sound cool, but...why release them without a SoundWave?
Unless they're WFC and meant to go with that SW....still cool.
WheelJack sounds nice as well.

Well, I preordered $330 worth. Ouch. Hopefully the Hasbro versions will be the same as the Tak/Tomy versions and I can cancel all of these. On the other hand, I wouldn't be upset if Grapple were more orange and less yellow in his "United" incarnation. That would make me spring for that one.

Well, we technically already knew about Kup. As for the other 3, I have this to say, or should I say, emote: :BOOM: :BOOM: :BOOM: A Rumble and Frenzy? Now I oughtta kick myself for getting PE-01 Shadow Warrior a year ago now. :BANG_HEAD: Can't wait to see the first images!
