Possible spoilers of new products to be revealed at this weekends Toy Fair are already showing up. Such an example would be Apparently, the creators of the "Air Hogs" RC toy line are developing an RC toy that transforms from a Helicopter to a robot. To this point, not much is known about it, but stay tuned to as we continue to provide 24 hour coverage of Toy Fair this weekend.
NEW YORK - When Spin Master Ltd. started peddling its Air Hogs Zero Gravity vehicle two years ago, retailers doubted whether parents would be willing topay $59.99 for a radio-controlled toy — even if it climbed walls. But the item ended up being a hit and was followed by the equally popular $79.99 Storm Launcher. This year, Spin Master is pushing a $110 Robo Copter that transforms from a robot to a helicopter.

“This just proved to us that if it is a great toy, provides a wow and introduces new functions, consumers are willing to spend the money,” said Harold Chizick, vice president of global promotional marketing for the Toronto-based toy maker. “We just decided to step it up.”

“This game is about better quality,” said Ronald D. Boire, president of Toys “R” Us’s U.S. toy business. “It is not about plastic by the pound. We have been playing plastic by the pound for way too long.” He said Toys “R” Us will be making a bigger push to carry higher-grade toys.

“When we have great toys, the consumer comes back to the toy department,” he said. “Can the toy industry and other industries co-exist? Absolutely. Consumers will buy what the child wants.”

Jack from Tformers was kind enough to drop us a line letting us know that they have a new and very large pictuer of the Transfromers Movie Optimus Prime Voice Changer. If this helmet is as well received by Transformers fans as the Darth Vader Voice Changer was by the Star Wars fans, then this is sure to be a fan favorite item for a very long time to come.

No word yet as to what the voice changer actually sounds like, but be sure of this; as soon as a audio clip is available you'll hear it first here on!

TFW2005 has posted new bios on Titanium Soundblaster w/ Ravage and Prowl. Unfortunatly the bios don't tell enough information as to what they will look like in both bot or alt modes.

Titanium 6" Soundblaster

No DECEPTICON is the subject of as much rumor and conjecture as the inscrutable SOUNDBLASTER. No matter the situation, his face is a sinister, impassive mask, betraying not even the slightest hint of emotion. If his expressionless face shows a glimmer of reaction, it is only a reflection; a trick of the light bent off his polished faceplate or depthless optic sensors.
Much is made of the power he could wield as DECEPTICON communications specialist, for every secret plan, every hidden bit of data passes through his file system. Little attention is paid, however, to his other function – interrogation. Every AUTOBOT fears capture because of the cruelty he would experience at the hands of MEGATRON, but it is under this robot's care that such cruelty is dispensed. SOUNDBLASTER goes about his awful work with detached efficiency, doling out pain the way a supply drone might hand out Energon chips. Detailed die-cast metal SOUNDBLASTER figure changes from robot to tape deck and back! Figure comes with RAVAGE figure and display base."

Titanium 6" Prowl

The most single-minded of all the AUTOBOTS, PROWL is sometimes referred to as "the commander's SHARKTICON" because of the way he seizes a problem and refuses to let it go until it is solved. He rivals even SHOCKWAVE in the fields of cryptology, logistics and strategic planning. In fact, the two of them will occasionally engage in complex shadow wars that rage just beneath the surface of an ongoing battle, logical games designed more to frustrate and confound each other than secure victory for their sides.
PROWL believes that there is a reason for all things. He struggles to understand the perspective even of his enemies, believing that if he can discern the logical underpinnings of the DECEPTICON cause, he can devise a strategy for final victory. Though he is often torn by emotions in conflict with his logic, he has difficulty understanding how others can be so ruled by feeling and instinct. He believes that all creatures behave according to some complex arithmetic, and that if he could only work it out, he could bring peace to the universe. Detailed die-cast metal PROWL figure changes from robot to vehicle and back! Figure comes with display base."
