For the past few weeks, the BotCon exclusives have been leaked one-by-one over the past month ... Transformers Animated Stunticons Dead End, Breakdown, Drag Strip, and Wildrider. A highly possible list of unannounced BotCon exclusives has been circulating the Internet and word-of-mouth for a few weeks now. I've heard the same information from multiple sources from around the globe. This marks the 4th time I've heard this list but I'm still considering all of this a huge rumor until we hear officially from BotCon. Make sure you keep checking back to find out if these figures are officially revealed from the BotCon folks at TransformersClub.com


My source also informed me that Toxitron would be this year's freebie, but considering the freebies in the past I would think this would be unlikely. Previous BotCons have had a scout or deluxe class sized figure as the freebie. Financially, it would most likely make more sense to continue with that tradition. It is also possible that Toxitron will be the custom class exclusive instead of the regular freebie, which would make a little more sense. Of course, it could be neither and just be one of the regular convention exclusives.

Is this list 100% accurate? Are there more? Less? Time will tell! Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Remember those Optimus Prime photos we brought you from Toy Fair? According to Movieweb Optimus Prime was cited for blocking traffic! Barricade's revenge?

To read the original story click here! There are also a couple of quotes from an interview with DOTM's Rosie Huntington-Whitley, but nothing all that revealing about the movie.

In other Transformers: Dark of the Moon news, Optimus Prime himself visited the American International Toy Fair in New York and received a $115 parking ticket.

The screen-used tractor-trailer version of Optimus Prime was parked on 41st Street near 8th Avenue in front of Times Square after being dropped off on a flatbed in two pieces from Los Angeles. New York City drivers had a hard time making it around the 9 ft vehicle, which was charged with blocking traffic.

Apparently, the truck is only drivable on a movie set, and not street legal. Although Hasbro, who had the truck and trailer shipped in for the Toy Fair, had all of the appropriate street permits, Optimus Prime still received a ticket. There is no word if Hasbro will pay the ticket at this time.

The ever so elegant site moderator and super hero, Counterpunch took the opportunity to speak with the gracious folks at Hasbro during Toy Fair. He was able to get answers to several questions. While these things are likely going to change over time or as circumstances change, it's still good information to take in right now.

General info from Hasbro Reps
-MP Rodimus is not immediately forthcoming-
So, there is real interest in bringing it over. However, don't expect to see anything soon. Essentially, this will depend on a retailer coming through with an exclusive. From the tone of the conversation, it seemed as if that was not going well. Remember though that it took around a year to get Grimlock from Japan to the Western markets. However, we also got info on that at Botcon and SDCC. So, I would look to that as your answer on if we'll see Rodimus in this year or next.

-Powercore Combiners appear to be done...ish-
There was no trace of the line at Toy Fair. The rep seemed surprised that Undertow wasn't at market yet and that the Dinobots were hard to find.

Info from Greg Lombardo, Senior Director of Global Marketing for the Transformers brand at Hasbro
-Those Wal Mart SKUs for Arcee and Starscream-
Those were meant to be the Prime toys. They are NOT Classics style figures. Originally, the Prime toys were going to be fit into the Generations line. Now they are getting their own 4th quarter 2011 line. What we have seen so far is a pre-cursor wave, kind of to avoid the whole Animated show/toy debacle. We will get a new Prime and Megatron in larger sizes. Starscream will not necessarily get a larger toy.

-Mechtech-
The figures are smaller due to the Mechtech toys. It's not a cost of oil/production issue.

-Generations/RtS/United Decos-
How Takara gets the decos they do, is by individual pricing of their figures. For Hasbro, a wave has a cost to it that is split up amongst the figures in the wave. They have to ration out who gets what and how many paint apps. Takara is able to price a figure individually and as such, the budgets are different per figure. They aren't bound internally by wave. So, instead of Jazz costing $12 or 1500Y at retail, they can give him the appropriate deco and charge $13.42 or 1572Y...whatever it takes to cover the cost. It's a matter of flexibility.

-DotM-
Many or most of the toy decisions were made such that the toys would not be a rehashing of what they've already done. There was an effort to ensure that figures were fundamentally different.

Counterpunch can clarify any of these points, but he can't tell you anything about stuff he didn't ask about.

Other things that he took away from the show:
-DotM voyagers are SMALL.
-Hasbro really seems to be taking the product back to kids, perhaps leveling it down by 2 years in the age bracket.
-The Star Wars team really knows their shit.
-The GI Joe collectors are getting really, really, really nice 3 3/4 inch figures. Really.
-Mechtech looks dumb, but it is probably fun for kids.
-Ultimate Optimus Prime is kind of cool looking. Much better than the pics.
-Legends figures have really come into their own. (They're just not coming into Counterpunch's house!)
