Because that's where you put pet fish when they die. :-D



Also, cartoons always put aquatic villains in the sewers.

That's...actually good logic. I never thought of that

Key phrase here is "secret project", Rescue Bots Academy isn't a secret so this could be something entirely new and unrelated to anything else. Also, I don't believe they've ever directly addressed the movie code names publicly so these names may be the actual product names rather than code names.

probably not this. names are too silly. but they did say before they wanted to do a new unicron through the haslabs crowdfunding thing. as for this, the silly names have been making me think of new blind bag mini figures, but silly ones like the gross-ery gang etc. only time will tell


That's the same background that's been used elsewhere before. I think it's also used in the Earth Wars game for past couple of years.

Quite right Ryan: I've only recently started playing and have seen that background quite often in the last 24hr.

I'm inclined to think it's WfC-related. Just my wishful thinking!

Since WfC is next year's line and these listings have been on Amazon for a while now I doubt it's related.

New Transformers Listings on Amazon with Micromaster Team Names

We also have another series of unknown listings over on online retailer Amazon, and specifically its Australian site, for some upcoming Transformers figures and sets that we might end up seeing in person at San Diego Comic Con 2018 next week, and apparently due by December 2018.

This second batch is only listed by its initial part of the name, bar one, which lends itself to some severe speculation: "Rescue“, “Battle“, “Airstrike“, “Spy“, “Sports Car“, “Race Car“, and "Off Road Patrol". If those names sound familiar, it's because all but 'Spy' were the names of the Micromaster Patrols from the late 1980s/early 1990s toyline! Check out the listings below, and let us know what your speculation brings you in the Energon Pub discussion boards.

So it looks like the rumours about the return of micromasters is being proved slowly. I like micromasters so I approve.

Figured they'd have to tackle the micromaster lines eventually as they're running out of characters to update. Of the 1984 line, the only one that hasn't been updated is Bumper / Bumblejumper. For 1985, its the Powerdashers, the Ominibots, and a few Deluxe Insecticons. 1986 everyone has an update except Hubcap (who did get a movie toy). 1987 there's the remaining 4 Throttlebots, the Autobot Targetmasters, the headmaster triple changers, and Flywheels (who at least got his head released in the last line).

I would prefer that if they hit Micromasters that they make them as larger figures (as tiny cars just don't make sense except for populating city scenes), but the price point seems to indicate they'll stay small.

My thoughts exactly. I was pulling for them to come back, especially after Blackjack. And I hope they're in the new Legends class, though a straight reissue of the G1 figures would be fine as well. As long as the molds are still good.

I have most of the original sets. I wouldn't mind getting the rest especially if they are reissue or "classic" models.

More Intriguing Transformers Listings on Amazon Australia

PostPosted: Sat Jul 14, 2018 3:03 am

After yesterday's news from Amazon Australia - about the Micromaster named listings, which you can check again here - fellow Seibertronian DELTA_prime has sent us another link to the online retailer with several new intriguing names showing up. Fellow staff member Burn suggests that the possible reason for these appearing on Amazon AU before US, is because now that Australia is geo-blocked from Amazon US, and these are being shipped and sold from Amazon US, they might be trying to work out how much stock they need for Australian customers.

As for the figures themselves, there seem to be listings for a new Megatron, Bumblebee, Soundwave, Jetfire, Ultra Magnus, Hot Rod, Prowl, Drift, Barricade, Thundercracker, Drift, Springer and Starscream - though these may in fact all be part of the Cyberverse line, as initially posted here.

Then we have entries for characters names Cog, Sixgun, Crankcase, and Shockwave at what seems to be a leader scale price. With the Battle Masters revealed for War for Cybertron, and more Micromaster team names, might this be the base and sixchangers? Or possible remolds from pre-existing Metroplex, Fortress Maximus, Sixshot?

And finally, we have listings for items called Infantry, Red Lightning, Rockhounds, Greenjackets and Rockducks - around the same price point as the Voyager Siege Optimus Prime from the previous news story, but again, the actual contents are to be determined. Browse through the listings in this story, and join the speculation in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

The Megatron and Ultra Magnus are the same price as the Shockwave figure so that makes me think that they could be war cor cybertron leader classes too, they're was also an Optimus at that price as well, so maybe a new powermaster Prime? Maybe I'm just being optimistic.

I can't really offer any real insights via the product codes (E****), as I don't have the ones for the Power Ram Bumblebee and Cyberverse Warriors yet.

This article is WAY off. First of all these prices are in AUD not USD which drastically changes things. Secondly the names that are grouped together aren't even the same price point. http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/07/14/even ... zon-367337 this is a much better breakdown of all the names and the correct prices.
