This the first news that we have heard of this new Target exclusive and it comes from *Soundwave*.

Images of a new Target exclusive Animated three-pack that includes the deluxe Ratchet figure repainted with yellow instead of reds, and also includes Legends size Starscream and Prowl toys-- which do not appear to be repaints--have surfaced. You can view the set in and out of package here.

This is the second three-pack that we have seen evidence of. The first was a set of Stealth Lockdown, Legends Prime, and Legends Bumblebee. The evidence for this was the instructions found on the HASBRO website reported on earlier. So can we assume this earlier three-pack is also a Target exclusive? Only time will tell.

TFCC Teases Last Membership Exclusive Figure To Collectors

Yes, it's true.

The artists for the official Transformers Collectors Club appear to have given away the final piece of the club membership exclusive combiner.

A few of our sharp-eyed community members, metalogan and Jason, pointed out this recurring character image in two recent releases of TF art by the collector's club.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELOW!!!



The first is the Shattered Universe Timelines cover that we just saw in the news is to be released in November of this year.

The second is from a piece of art that only club members have access to at this point. The piece is the desktop art for the 'Shattered Universe' Decepticons.

Obviously both are similar images, but not the same, although they do feature similar characters.

For your viewing pleasure...the evidence cut from the original images.


Timelines Cover

Wallpaper Art

This appears to be a blue and red repaint of the Energon Barricade mold. Now we have no details as to a name for this figure, but we seem to have confirmation of what it will look like. We also know from previous conventions that the combiner head will be remolded for this final piece to the member's exclusive.

And it also appears that our combiner bots currently taking refuge in the Transtech universe, will be moving into the Shattered Universe at some point soon, based on this character's inclusion in two pieces of 'Shattered Glass' Decepticon art.

All clues seem to point to a heroic Decepticon Barricade to bring the bots together and help them achieve their true potential...or not? It looks like the TFCC chose wisely for the torso piece of our membership exclusive, if they did indeed choose the Energon Barricade mold, the most solid of the three Energon torsos.

Apparently, the never announced re-release of Armade Unicron in Universe packaging, last seen on shelves in Singapore, has now made its way to California TRUs, in Alhambra, San Diego, and Orange County, as well as, apparently Phoenix, Arizona.

You can see the original sighting thread here where there is photographic proof of some of the displays.

This is good news for those who did not get this toy the first time it was offered.

If you happen to come across Universe Unicron, please share this information with your fellow collectors in the sightings forum and database.

Target has orders available now for the TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED Powerbot Street Patrol Bumblebee on their website (although the actual toy does not arrive for 2-6 weeks).

Street Patrol Bumblebee is a repaint of the non-transforming Cyber Speed Bumblebee. Here's Hasbrotoyshop.com's description of what you can expect when you purchase this toy--this entry is for the Cyber Speed Bumblebee.

:
BUMBLEBEE is the ultimate AUTOBOT speedster, with turbo power to spare! He rolls into action at top speed, blasting the bad guys with his electric stingers. Together with his fellow AUTOBOTS, and his new human friends, he'll defend the Earth and the AllSpark against all comers!

Roll into battle with this slick robot figure by your side! Light-up eyes and stinger blast let you know that this “bot” means business! Push the AUTOBOT shields for lights and super smashing sounds as the AUTOBOT hero packs a turbo punch – along with cool phrases like, “I am one fast bot!”, “Let’s motor!” and “Bring it on, DECEPTICONS!” And with real rolling action in 4-wheel speed mode, this is one AUTOBOT warrior that’s ready to roll out!

Includes 3 “AAA” batteries


I am curious to know if the repaint says different phrases, or if he says the same as the Cyber Speed version.

Archatron has found an eBay auction showing the Animated Voyager Optimus Prime sporting a new package, and a new way to be arranged in the package.

Previously, upon first release, Animated Voyager Optimus Prime was released in alt mode, leaving a bit of room in the box.


Now the toy appears to be packaged in robot mode and the box seems to be oriented to stand on the short end, instead of to be displayed on the long end.




Interesting, or meh? Will we see repackages of more Voyager sized Animated toys in this way?

You can check out the eBay auction here.

The TFClub.com has updated, this time with not some cool custom, but instead, a nice, very hi-res gallery of the upcoming Universe Ironhide.

The gallery includes pictures in and out of package. The bio/tech spec is clearly visible as is Ironhide's weapon gimmick, and a lot of the details of Ironhide's robot mode.

Be patient though, the pictures are very high-resolution and take bit of time to load.

Check out a couple teasers below from the TFClub!

Thanks to ehmw of actoys.net we have our first look at Unicron's bio from his upcoming Universe line release:

Immortal, indestructable and all powerful, UNICRON is the ultimate evil in the cosmos. Massive, silent and unstoppable, he floats through the non-space between dimensions, reaching out with his sensors to find the universe with the most energy. Those dimensions he finds suitable, he consumes, destroying every planet, every star and every trace of life. He has been destroyed or defeated countless times, yet he always returns, hungrier and more powerful than before, for he is more than a mere monster, he is evil incarnate , and as long as there is evil, there is UNICRON.

To check out the images of Unicron in his packaging , including his bio, and all of his gimmicks, please click here.
To contrast and compare the Universe release of Unicron to his previous releases, check out the Seibertron galleries of Armada Unicron, and Energon Unicron.
