Sweet...I hope that Voyager "Grappel" is a retool of Universe Inferno.

Turner Skids!!! I love typos. But I am looking very forward to scouting out most of this list. What can I say, the movie detail has grown on me. And who doesn't love the classics aesthetic. :CON: :KREMZEEK:

The announcement of Straxus blanked most other Toy Fair news from my mind, so had "Twin Boom Fighter" been announced before? Trying to picture that and a new Banzaitron is damn near crashing my brain.

And it's probably just because of the one KTMA ep of MST3K I saw on youtube, but naming a TF "Oilpan" makes me worry we're in for some scatalogical humor, especially if he's in the Bayniverse.

...."TWIN BOOM FIGHTER"

What the hell?

Who is that?!

Still, the figures I do recognize from the list give me some hope.

I want that new Deluxe Class ROTF/HFTD Bumblebee. He was quite possibly the most screen accurate Deluxe yet.

This confirms for sure, without a doubt that not only is the third Arcee sister coming, but her name is in fact Elita-1. No more wondering or hoping (in either direction) about the name, Elita-1 it is.

I'll wait and see what the new figures look like before I get on board with "OMGFANGASM"

For all we know, some of those Scout Class names could be from PCC.

And no, those are all, and should be movie figures. [/color]

Banzai-tron? Dredging up Action masters, wow. I guess it will be a repainted Bludgeon with a new head, the character certainly does not deserve a new mould.

Hopefully Grapple is a remould of Universe Inferno! :D

Maybe Strafe is a repaint of Mindwipe or Voyager Starscream? :???:

I was thinking that Banzai-Tron would've been the Mindwipe repaint, if for no other reason than it would look pretty cool in purples and greys.

I'm very excited to see what they do for Grapple. I'm hoping for a new mold.

Oh, I knew about her. Even seen the pic. But some stragglers were still holding out hope for a name change at the very least. I'm just saying this not only confirms the earlier reports, plus the picture's proof, but hopefully people will shut up about it now.

And thank you for reposting the picture. I do believe her head is remolded...at least, I hope so. They could've at least gone to that extent with it.

I'm a little pissed that they didn't swap the limbs around to at least make her feel like a different figure. I highly doubt it would've been OMGWTFBBO expensive to retool a few pieces so they swing the OTHER way.

Yeesh, Hasbro.

I wonder if some fan will devise a way to reverse that and make a garage kit so we can all do it? *hint hint (no, not me)*

Don't panic. Botcon is in June (I believe) and there's no way possible that ALL of these figures will be released before the convention. It's impossible.

Hasbro wouldn't push that much product out at once.

Some before, during, and after, yes.

All before, no.

Lets not get over excited, now! Just because its appeared on the computer, that doesn't make it a certainty - anyone remember "Commemoritive Series Trailbreaker"? ;)

Aw crap. With everything else (FanProject, Botcon, etc.) nearly all of these will have to wait.

I still have my doubts it's even supposed to be the purple Arcee from the movie. First of all that figure is black, not purple. I know there's some faint purple splotches here and there on it. But that's probably because it's a picture taken of a projection, not the best quality there. I think Elita-1 falls in the same category as Payload. He may be a yellow Constructicon, but he's not supposed to be Scrapper. Elita-1 is a motorcycle, but she's not the one in the movie.

True, but she'll combine (as we've seen folks combine two Chromias and an Arcee, already) and that's basically what Hasbro is producing her for. To shut us up.

I find it hard to get excited about the new names until we get to see images. I have a strong feeling that most, if not all of them are movie style repaints. It's safe to say I can live without those.

Well, they both say Voyager. So, take that as you will. Voyager is still the $20 ish price range. I doubt we'll be getting bigger figures there.
