GENERATIONS
-----------------------------------
G1 Legends Optimus Prime
G1 Legends Starscream
G1 Legends Prowl
G1 Legends Megatron (Walther P-38, can be held by Masterpiece Starscream)
NOTE: THESE ARE NOT SMALLEST TFS ... NEW MOLDS! LEGENDS CLASS! PURE LOVE!

Scout Windercharger (looks like it has a rubsign)

Deluxe Skullgrin (Darkmount repaint / remold)
Deluxe G1 Scourge
Deluxe WFC Cliffjumper
Deluxe Thunderwing (front does detach as a drone)
Deluxe Tracks (can do the winged car mode)
Deluxe Jazz (looks like a Porsche or something similar, has speakers on inside of door that pop out in vehicle or robot mode, designed alternate head unknown)
Deluxe Perceptor (sniper rifle, truck, alternate head might be Reflector)

Voyager Grapple (inferno repaint w/ crane and alternate head, and new feet)

(in Q&A it was hinted that there might be a new Kup figure)


HUNT FOR THE DECEPTICONS
-----------------------------------
Deluxe Terradive
Deluxe Tomahawk
Deluxe Mindset (repaint w/ alternate head)
Deluxe Fallback (Outback reference)

Voyager Fallen (darker colors than what I pictured)
Voyager Highbrow
Voyager Lugnut (looks awesome, more realistic expression, similar paint scheme to TFA version)


POWER CORE COMBINERS
-----------------------------------
Heavytread (tank) w/ Mini-Con Groundspike
Skyhammer (jet) w/ Mini-Con Airlift
Steamhammer / Constructicons
Grimstone / Dinobots


THE ORIGINAL 13
----------------
Aaron Archer talking about story elements ... (not sure if this is for a future toy line or just Hasbro building the fictional mythos). This is stuff for several years done the road. Sneak peak! Doesn't appear to be a toyline at this time. The following is a list of extremely cool drawings that they showed us.

Alpha Trion
Liege Maximo
Vector Prime (time and space)
Prima (warrior of light)
Megatronus (warrior of darkness)
The Fallen (has an interesting new plot twist)


Q&A
-----------------------------
Interesting bits from the Q&A

Everyone was disappointed about the end of TFA
Slipstream is in WFC
No current plans for different size classes in PCC
More girl toys? Stay tuned! Wink! Wink!
More WFC toys? Success breeds more success.
There are no plans at this time for a Toyline for Transformers: Prime

I missed two of the PCC figures. If anyone has their names, please let us know so that the news story can be updated properly. Thanks!

TFW2005 says that the tank is called Heavytread with Mini-Con Groundspike. And that the jet is called Skyhammer with Mini-Con Airlift.

Wow, I want almost all the Deluxe figures they mentioned!

And Scourge also gets a proper "Classics" style release as well ... very nice.

I'm excited about these, but the thing I am most excited about is that they seem to be going more and more with the idw comics thing. This is mostly because it gives me hope that we might eventually see a proper release of Springer. Also, I hope the WFC stuff sells well, I hope to see a WFC Starscream at some point.

I cannot wait.

Well, I guess no one can complain that they're not listening to fans anymore. Reading that Generations roster was almost as fangasmic as seeing "The Agenda" for the first time. Thunderwing especially needs a new figure.

Only one minor quibble: Repainting Straxus/Darkmount into Skullgrin is...well...worth a shot, but a more logical repaint would be into (SPOILER ALERT!) Megatron's colors, with a slight remold that allows his head to easily pop on and off.

i've been hoping for a universe scourge for yonks not to mention a jazz grapple and tracks etc. All that seems to be missing is a blitzwing

Hasbro, I was wrong. I thought this was going to be a sucky year, and you've proven me wrong. I'm sorry. This is...incredible. Jazz? Scourge? Kup? Perceptor? I'm overwhelmed. They do listen!

Hasbro's really going great guns this year!

I think I'm excited about most of those, although now I really wish I had gotten Inferno.

Scourge is good to here, because my Titanium one is a bit too heavy to have hanging over my desk the way he is now...

Posted by Jacob P. Galvatron on June 27th, 2010 @ 11:00am CDT
My points of interest:

Deluxe G1 Scourge: Well, if that new set comes out, I'll get him to complete the team.

Deluxe Jazz: Little B will be so happy.

Voyager Lugnut: On the fence. I love Lockdown, but I'll have to see him...

Grimstone / Dinobots: Wasn't planning on Powercores, but this one may just draw me in.

Slipstream is in WFC: lols... she has glowy bits on her butt.

More WFC toys? Success breeds more success: Yay.

I've just pooped in my pants. I'm going to have to sell my children to afford all of the plastic awesome that is coming out this year. I think I'll sell the older one... :ic$: ;) But seriously, this is going to be an INCREDIBLE year to be a collector. I'm very excited. Bravo Hasbro...you have redeemed yourself (for the moment) :APPLAUSE:

Kup is coming. A friend told me the quote is: "And there's even more new stuff that we couldn't show you today. *COUGHKUPCOUGH*"

And apparently the person who said that nodded yes when people got excited.

Even more? wow if this is true I can't wait to see what else they got =P~ The only thing that would make this more awsome is more WFC and Wheeljack. But they're making Percy! Oh I'm so glad they're making Percy! The others I will have to see them before I buy, but not this guy :x Just a quick question though, do they usually release more stuff like this a SDCC? I read on a post somewhere that they did. Wow, looks like it was a good year to start my new hobby lol! :APPLAUSE:

And the new Generations toys sound great!

Not even cancellation can stop Lugnut from following the great and GLORIOUS leader Megatron to other continuities, I see. Great! There really needs to be more of these cross-series things.

There will be no toys for the Transformers: Prime series (not planned at least)

Strange.

...Now make Overlord Generations and Thundercracker and it will be glorious...

Hey, I can dream, hehehe.

Good going over all, in any event. Cannot wait to get a hold of them ALL.

Yes, they do show more stuff at SDCC. First, they'll show the toys that were shown today, but publicly. Botcon wants no video or picture devices in the panel discussion, but what was seen only by those attending, will be seen publicly next month at SDCC, plus they'll show a few more items of what's to come.

Botcon and SDCC are the two conventions that show us everything. By the end of those two, we'll have a very, very clear look at what's to come until June 2011 when TF3's toyline debuts.

So...they're gonna have to push these Generations toys out fast.

Now...who the heck is Percy?

Awesome! SIMPLY AWESOME NEWS!! This has made my day (apart from the fact that I'm very quickly running out of money. Doh!). With the exception of Cliffjumper, can we assume the rest of the Generations figures are Classics? Interesting that Perceptor will be a truck. Should be good. AND FINALLY A JAZZ!! SCOURGE!! OH MY GOD!!

Very happy Hasbro have gone back to the original 13 mythos like they said they would. PLEASE make figures of these.

Either way, THANK YOU HASBRO!!!

Wow, this is amazing. Hasbro, you brought your A-game for sure. Still find it so odd we aren't getting a Wheeljack yet.. Kup is a pleasant surprise as well. I think Hasbro read my mind last night. I just posted about a Wrecker's Perceptor when I saw Blurrs sniper rifle. Cannot wait. No hints on the rumored Arcee though..

WFC Sideswipe and Ironhide need to be on my shelf. Bring on the success.

This is indeed good news, though I am curious about Scourge. The Titanium version is pretty good. Just needs a weapon...

I have been playing WFC all week. It's pretty cool. It makes me want me some jets. Not the seeker drones, mind you. Give me them six main character jets. And the others like Slipstream and Ramjet.

And Trypticon. NEED Trypticon!!

Well it's official, I am going to be BROKE through most of this year. I am going to get everything mentioned with the exception of maybe 4 figures. FansProject, you have a Wreck-Gar in the works, I know you do, please don't release it until next year so I will be able to get it without sacrifice. HasTakTom, :APPLAUSE: :KREMZEEK: :BOWDOWN: :DANCE: You are too good to us this time, please keep it up. And a few G2 styled figures in the mix would work wonders too(a G2 styled Trypticon reissue, or just a Trypticon reissue PERIOD would be awesome too.) :grin:

Wonder if the alt head for Jazz will be Wheeljack? If Blurr and Drift can be the same mold, I could see those two pulling off that switcharoo. Plus, this would probably one time the fans would excuse such a similar repaint.

This is AWESOME! Yet more Power Core Combiners! Hopefully they'll create PCC versions of the Technobots and Terrorcons, as well as some more original concepts like the Rallybots and Destructicons. If they do, I'll be one happy camper!

By the way, did I read right? Dinobot toys that actually combine?

Yes. We are receiving a Dinobot PCC set.

And I'd love to see G1 combiners redone in PCC. But with actual hands and feet, ya know. Since the drones do absolutely nothing, and the only moving parts are used for the "Automorph" transformation, isn't it possible that Hasbro could fashion a hand and arm mounted weapons to pop out and retain the G1 ish look?

I'm sure they could do it, but will they? I don't think so.
