Well this was unexpected if it turns out to be true. User Mr. Chaos on the TFW2005 forums has posted some new UPC codes for known figures from an anonymous source, but included was a new UPC for a figure that we haven't heard rumors of yet: Leader class Astrotrain.

WFC Leader Class Astrotrain. E3419. UPC 63050988227


Now, obviously, this hasn't been confirmed by Hasbro so take this rumor with a grain of salt. We are heading into Toy Fair starting Friday so there's a possibility this figure may make an appearance at the event if it's true. Thanks to Seibertronian Autobot N for making us aware! Feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub forums below!

So this is still very much a rumour at this junction, but two of our fellow Seibertron users, TFanPage101 and Cyberpath have shared with us a rumour first circulated on the TFW2005 boards by a user over there by the name of TTEmploy

The rumour states that the masterpiece following MP-44 will be none other than a new version of Bumblebee, with a robot mode closely resembling the G1 animation model and with an Alt mode to match the chibifed cartoon model which was done to match the original G1 toy.

Transformers News: Rumour MP-45 to be Bumblebee ver 2.0 with cartoon accurate alt mode?

The rumour also gives a run down on what he'll include and a Japanese price as well as his release date. These details are included in the original and subsequent posts. He also states that preorders will open on the twelfth of February. Apparently included is the figure itself, a Spike figure, two different faces, a gun effect part, a numberplate, seal and instructions.

Prehaps as proof to these claims, or as a reaction to the rumour, the TagHobby website created a listing for the figure, with matching details.

Here is what the listing says:

[BREAK NEWS]

TAKARATOMY於2019年9月推出變形金剛 MASTER PIECE系列 MP45 大黃蜂 Ver.2,暫時知道附有人偶Figure、武器及Effect部件,售價達日圓13,000(未含稅),會有什麼新玩法,留意我們日後報導。

TAGHOBBY get the updated news!! TAKARATOMY will release the TRANSFORMERS Master Piece Series MP45 Blublebee Ver.2.0 in Sep 2019. It include figure, weapon and effect part. We are very surprise for the price of ver.2.0 is 13,000Yen(Not included tax).


No source is given on the TagHobby site.

So again, it must be stressed that this is all rumours currently.

Till then why not have a look at Seibertron's own gallery of MP-21 Bumblebee to see the old version or check out a top 5 list of non-movie Bumblebee toys as compiled by several Seibertron.com users:

China.Org has reported of a potential Beast Wars movie as well as the (still rumored) Optimus Prime movie. Bumblebee movie producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura was also careful to state that the chances of subsequent movies are riding on the success of Bumblebee at the Box Office.

He also mentioned the animated movie was in its writing stage, though with other titles already riding on Bumblebee's success – being in the writing stage doesn't exactly guarantee even the animated movie's release, either.

China.org wrote:"We have an animated movie in the writing stage right now. We are trying to figure out an Optimus Prime movie, while the Beast Wars franchise has the chance, too."

However, the producer stressed this could only happen under one condition: "Bumblebee" must be a success.”

You can read the full report here, which also mulls over design choices for the Bumblebee movie and its more G1 centric aesthetic.

With the Bumblebee movie still being pushed at the cinema is it too early to be giving hints of Beast Wars and Optimus Prime to generate hype for more movies or is it a carrot to generate additional sales for the Bumblebee movie? If Beast Wars or Optimus Prime is going ahead – what are you hoping for? Share your thoughts on the Energon Pub right here on Seibertron.com!

Transformers: SIEGE Deluxe Lancer teased by Hasbro, new name for Elita-1 Combiner, all current codes for online bios

We have some exciting news, Transformers fans! Just a few weeks after the official reveal of Transformers: SIEGE Deluxe Greenlight, complete with Combiner Wars/Power of the Primes style combiner compatibility, we have confirmation that Hasbro will indeed complete the female Autobot combiner, formerly (and informally) known as "Elita Infin1te." Seibertron.com member Survivefan23 has tipped us off to some classified files from none other than Teletraan 1! Want in? First, go to Hasbro's official Transformers website HERE and click on "Decode Message." Next, choose "Enter Access Code." When prompted, type in "LANCER." You'll be taken to a Data File on... Greenlight!? That's NOT the part of this reveal that's particularly interesting, though. We know Greenlight is coming and that she will be a modern combiner limb. What's more interesting is the unlocked "Item 2" below, pictured below. It depicts a fully combined female Autobot combiner, with Elita-1 as the torso and Moonracer, Novastar, and Greenlight as limbs, along with a fourth limb that remains "Classified." Its silhouette is still consistent with the rest of the female Autobot team so far, though, so it likely shares a basic mold with the other Deluxe female Autobot figures released so far. Since the code word to find this information was "Lancer," it's not too much of a stretch to guess that is the identity of this classified fourth limb. We already know it won't be Chromia, as she is being released in Deluxe Wave 2 of SIEGE without combiner compatibility. Take a look at the schematic below for "Orthia." Yes, it seems the Elita-1 combiner is not named "Elita Infin1te" afterall, or maybe that name only applies when anyone but her designated team is used in combination with her, akin to how Scattershot can either form "Computron" with the rest of the Technobots or "Betatron" when combined with any other figures. Take a look at the schematics below, which also show the official configuration of the limbs for combiner Orthia.

Transformers News: Transformers: SIEGE Deluxe Lancer Teased by Hasbro?

As a bonus, Survivefan23 has provided us with the access codes for several other Transformers: SIEGE figures on the Teletraan 1 site. Each provides you with a short date file on each character, just as with Greenlight.

Cog: FORTRESSMAXIMUS
Hound: MACCADAMS
Megatron: KAON
Optimus Prime: IACON
Shockwave: TARN
Sideswipe: SUNSTREAKER
Skytread: DUOCON
Ultra Magnus: FORGEOFSOLUS

What do you think of the prospect of having a finished, official roster for the Elita-1 combiner started in Power of the Primes last year? Do you think the "Classified" fourth limb member is none other than Lancer from the original G1 cartoon episode "The Search for Alpha Trion?"

Hasbro, via their Hascon subsite has announced that Hascon 2019 has been postponed with no additional information about a reschedule. Originally slated for September 6th through to the 8th, 2019 in Providence, Rhode Island at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin' Donuts Center. Whatever issues that have caused the delay are unknown, but be assured we will keep you updated on the matter here on Seibertron.

Hascon 2019 Postponed

Could this be related to Funpub's application to Trademark “Botcon” earlier this year? Are Hasbro going to stage a return of the classic Transformers fan event? Please join in the discussion on our Energon Pub here at Seibertron.com!

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, SillyMcGilly, we've learned that Transformers Universe Thailand Facebook Group has leaked a look at the instructions for a potential Studio Series toy of Optimus Prime as seen in the Transformers Bumblebee movie!

Transformers News: Rumour: Transformers Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime Studio Series Toy Leaked

While there isn't a lot to go on as we see a close up of the figure's chest shoulders and head but we can see that it's like all other Optimus in the line so far and is a Voyager class and is given the number #38, meaning that if indeed real, he'll be in the wave after Bonecrusher and 2007 Optimus (potentially).

Please bare in mind that we have had no official word from Hasbro on this figures existence so please treat all news on the subject till confirmed.

What do you think of this? Too good to be true? Or a bought on sight must-have? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

What might probably be the biggest news of the week has possibly given us another rather big reveal, unintentionally. We just newsed the first look at the Transformers reboot from IDW. In it, we see art of the Siege toys, down to swivels, pegs and pins. We can see Starscream, Megatron and of course Optimus. However, the Optimus body used in the picture is not the Siege voyager toy from wave 1. Instead, Optimus Prime is sproting the body of the inner voyager from the leader class Ultra Magnus. The chest looks retooled but still has a similar shape and a bigger giveaway is the tab near his feet.

We know that the only other leader class toy from Siege will be Optimus Prime and this may be our very first look at the inner robot. Which would mean that Siege leader class Optimus Prime would be a redeco/retool of Ultra Magnus. Of course, this is just speculation, but with such an attention to the toy details, we did want to bring it to your attention.

Also, in Transformers Siege news, Walmarts in Canada recieved a specialized display from Hasbro to highlight the toys. All classes, except for leaders, can be found on a two story carbdoard display stand with Siege art. You can see it below.

We finally have some confirmation about an impending Walmart Exclusive G1 Reissue Optimus Prime. Following on from our rumor\leak earlier today, thanks to Seibertron member Jtprime17, we have a working SKU Code (210385764). This release currently appears to be sans Trailer, which would be a first for G1 Optimus Prime releases in the Western market. Below is a mirror of the original article's leaked image -

The listing itself can be found on Walmart's own website as well as on Brickseek. With Hasbro reissuing G1 Transformers again – Optimus Prime seemed more like an eventuality than a maybe, but another chance to grab this iconic character for yourself is always welcome.

Until an official announcement is made, why not take a moment to refresh your optics with a look at Seibertron.com's own G1 Optimus Prime gallery!

Fellow Seibertronians, we have a very tantalizing rumor to pass along! Our own Shajaki has pointed us to some pictures gleaned from the Facebook group Transformers Never Die. The pictures depict none other than the most famous of all Autobots, Optimus Prime, in all his G1 glory (minus his trailer). He's packaged in the same style of retro "Vintage G1 Transformer" box that Hasbro has used this year for the Walmart Starscream and Hot Rod G1 reissues. Not a lot information is to be found yet about this mysterious addition to the "Vintage G1" line-up. These pictures may have been taken at a Taiwan trade show. If anyone is able to translate any of the information on the post on TFND or anything in the comments, please let the Seibertron New Crew know so that we can update this story! For now, enjoy what could very well be appearing on Walmart shelves in the near future in the United States and Canada!

Transformers News: RUMOR: Vintage G1 Transformers Optimus Prime Release Coming Soon!?

Take particular note of the first picture. This alleged Vintage G1 Optimus Prime release is sitting atop the soon-to-be released Transformers Siege Leader Shockwave and Leader Ultra Magnus. You can just make out "Decepticon Shockwave" on the left box and WFC-S13 on the box on the right, which is the designation for Ultra Magnus in the War for Cybertron: SIEGE line.

What do you think of the possibility of getting another reissue of G1 Optimus Prime, but without his signature trailer? Is this a hoax? A clever knock-off? A Hasbro Asia exclusive? Tell us what you think in the comments below as we delve deeper into this mystery. As always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest news on everything Transformers!

Who remembers the "Select Series?" Well, we certainly hope you do to! Following our article on Select Series Red Swoop and Ricochet, we have some more news on this line!

The collector oriented "Generations Selects" toyline, should be unveiled soon. Hopefully we'll see pictures of soon "red" Swoop as well as Ricochet (a black and gold repaint of POTP Jazz). Both listings were previously found on Midtown Comics.

We also know of one of the new upcoming figures, Combat Hero Megatron in arctic camo colors! He is to be a redeco of the new Siege Voyager Class Megatron. For those who don't know, Combat Hero Megatron in arctic camo colors is an unreleased redeco of G2 Combat Hero Megatron. The gallery for this unreleased figure can be found here.

The toys will be available at specialty stores and online, similar to Combiner Wars Deluxe Class Quickslinger, Brake-neck and Groove. They will be available in cases of 24.

So, are you excited? Be sure to tune in to us for additional news about this collector oriented line, and leave a comment in the Pub forums below!
