New Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Voyager listings found? That's what the latest rumor making it's way around the internet would have us to believe. These listings are said to have come from Wal-Mart's computer system, and appear to reveal three previously unknown upcoming Voyager Class figures.

The first two listings seem to match up with Voyager Wave 1, Optimus Prime and Predaking.

TRA PRM BST OP - Optimus Prime, pretty straight forward.

TRA PRM BST DR - Predaing, the DR likely meaning dragon.

Things get more interesting when we examine the next three listings.

TRA PRM BST SHKW - Shockwave would make sense. He's a popular character, we know he will appear in Season 3 "Beast Hunters", and Hasbro has yet to release him in toy form. Could be a situation similar to the recently revealed "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Smokescreen.

TRA PRM BST UM - Ultra Magnus also seems likely. He's already received two figures in the previous "Robots in Disguise" line, he's currently appearing in the Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots miniseries which leads into Season 3, we already know he's going to get a Weaponizer class figure in the "Beast Hunters" line. The question being would this figure be a new mold, or a spiky retool of his existing Voyager Class figure.

TRA PRM KNT TL - ?, speculate away on this one.

Keep in mind Toy Fair is less than a month away, so we won't have to wait too long to see if these listing are accurate.

Here are the listings as reported by Seibertron.com Ominous Prime-Evil

BST is probably the abbreviation used for the Beast Hunters line, which makes KNT all the more interesting. Can't be Cyberverse, as that would be CYB, so I'm leaning more towards Kre-O. With that, TL gives a match: Trailcutter vs. Grimwing.

Hmmm, I really hope this means we will in fact be getting a TF Prime Shockwave!

When exactly is Toy Fair?

The TF facebook page hinted at some surprising reveals related to TFP Beast Hunters. I guess we'll find out soon enough!

If Weaponizers are the way forward, then i'm becoming a Cyberverse collector.

I'm not. I'd much rather collect them ahead of that Weaponizer crap.

Cyberverse do what Transformers are suppose to do. Transform. And they look good in both modes and don't have any sacrifices made because of some stupid gimmick.

Praise the Allspark if this is true! Finally, a Voyager Shockwave! :KREMZEEK:

If not... damn you for getting my hopes up. :sad:

Like, damn you forever.

In a fire.

Pain.

...

Anyway, I agree with the assessment on that third listing: Kre-O

I have heard stray talk of a weaponizer UM, so who knows? My question is, Why is he getting 4 toys in the same universe? Especially since before all this hes been getting very little attention. His Prid toy, like Beast OP has fake bits...

Does all this add up to them being in the show? I hope so.

Hm, I'd say it's less of a sacrifice and more of a limitation due to size. Though I wouldn't mind seeing more elbows, haha.

I certainly hope this rumour is true and accurate. The only possible reason why I wouldn't buy all of these voyagers is if any of the leader figures were superior.

On that note, has it been confirmed whether or not the Beast Hunter leader figures will even retain the Weaponizer gimmick? With the inclusion of firing projectiles on both the deluxe and voyager figures, maybe we've seen the back of the RiD gimmicks.

I'm not going to get even remotely excited about KNT TL. Any listing that obscure always turns out to be a major letdown.

Weaponizers are a size class and a gimmick. Not just a gimmick like Powerizers. Leaders and Weaponizers are two different things.

We don't have any confirmed leaders. We have three Weaponizers.

OP and PK I already know, but lets see how the others go!

Hmm... SW does look like a good idea to me, and he looks like a good replacement for FOC SW. And UM's toy should have to wait. But who's the third guy?

You know what it adds up to? It adds up to Hasbro saying "Ultra Magnus is no longer a white cab that bears a resemblance to Optimus Prime. No, Ultra Magnus is now all blue and you fanboys are going to shut up and take it!"

If there's just one BH figure I HAVE to get, this might be the one.

I hope he retains his G1-esque look from the CGI scenes we've seen so far, and not too "beast-ified." At the very least, I hope he has removable armor like Smokescreen so you can choose to display him without his BH-armor.

Yup. :lol: But he does look pretty good, at least in principal. Obviously the toy releases have been lacking in (or devoid of) paint, but I'd imagine the actual model will be gloriously colored!

First there was Cyberverse UM, then Voyager UM, later Kapao told us of Weaponizer/Leader UM, next made an appearance in Rage Of Dinobots, and now BH Voyager UM? :BOWDOWN: :BOWDOWN:

If all is true, 4 UM figures before making a TV debut, is unheard off. Somehow, I got the feeling his BH Voyager figure is going to look like the Orion Pax clips/ Incentive Animated Series Character Variant Cover:

ieh i half agree with your statement if we are getting shockwave he probaly be getting spiky upgrade thats what all characters looking like now forget season 2 look of shockwave hello spikewave with flashy colors egh hate to see megatron literly. i perfer nomral looking shockwave with purple but we getting him now will most likely be be spike looking.

holding off judgement until actuly pictures of figure show up that will be most intersting day pictures of shockwave how he looks

I'm not too sure about these. For one, they're parsed pretty oddly for Wal-Mart's usual standard of TF listings.

Funny you mentioned Walmart. I saw two days ago on the transformers shelves that there are two pricing for the supposedly weapon user class. One aside weaponizer and priced at $32.xx Another next to it says transformers leaders and priced at $34.xx. Maybe a new class or price increase??

I was under the impression the big dragon was going to be in the newly revived leader class.

Not sure, the shelves were empty. Not sure if that price (34) was for the lower price for dotm leader, of which is selling for cheaper. Milking every penny they get. Even at that price they still make money, which Ross and Marshall is selling for 24 bucks. Leader iron hide, sentinel, and leader bumblebee.

Of course I'm speculating. I mean why wouldn't Walmart jump on the bandwagon when smaller discount chains are selling for cheaper. Target during Christmas was selling dotm deluxes two for 9.99. Walmart must have gotten some sort of deals to continue milking the dotm lines.

A voyager Shockwave would be great. Just sucks that it's TF Prime instead of classics or even FOC. Why is it just the kiddie continuities get a voyager Shockwave ??? (Animated/Prime) Headrobots give this figure the classics treatment !!!

OK, so far 3/5 from the list have been confirmed for a TTomy release. Now, we just need a confirmation of:
KNT TL (?)
BST UM (ULTRA MAGNUS)

Wonder what's that KNT TL mean....
BST UM Voyager, I can never have enough figure of him, lol.
