some new images have surfaced of new Robot Heroes figures, in never-before-seen "Transformers Universe" packaging, which is the continuation of the Transformers Classics line.

The images show us two Generation 1 versus packs: Sunstreaker vs Galvatron and Hound vs blitzwing; and two Beast Wars packs: Rattrap vs Megatron and Cheetor vs Blackarachnia.

Why is it Hasbro can never pack an Optimus character with Megatron? And why can't they pack Rodimus with Galvatron? I mean, wouldn't these match-ups have made better sense?

Then again, this is Hasbro we're talking about.

It's simple marketing. Packing Primes and Megatrons seperately with other third-tier characters forces you to buy multiple packs, thus making them more money.

I've been a little "whatever" on the character choices for these so far, but I definitely want that adorable Hound/Blitzwing set. :D

The yellow on BlackArachnia is blinding, but it works!

I got all the G1 figs, I skipped the movie versions, but I have to say I've been eagerly waiting for these!

So once again, when they hit the shelves I shall wave them tauntingly infront of the 3 inch Titanium shelf warmers :grin:

I hope they make a silverbolt to go with the Blackarachnia

I'm going to get them all. Looks like they reduced the size of Miss Arachnia's upper chassis.

Curse them!

Still, I love the fact that they based her on an Asian Striper!

We'll never get something that cool again :cry:

Oooh! Oooh! Please let that be the actual, permanent packaging! PUH-LEEZE! YES!

Anyone else wonder if they'll make Transformers Animated Robot Heroes? Their designs are so simple and smooth, they'd be perfect for the Heroes line.

Nice stuff, packaging is sharp - Hound and Blitzwing are adorable, maybe one of the best Heroes sets yet. I LOVE the Beast Wars guys too, but why is Megatron blue with a purple face? He looks like he's wearing a children's snowsuit...

These look great. And like others I do dig the packaging with these. Looks like we get a first look at what the new "TF Universe" logo will loook like.

I've got all the G1 RH (skipped the movie set) so these are a no brainer for me.

Didn't he have an exclusive repaint? Like a Convention exclusive or something? It was black and looked badass!
