A reporting by Cuscopolita, which you can watch right here on Facebook, looks at the different vehicles/characters on the set of Transformers Rise of the Beasts. You get a good look at the interior, if that's something you wanted to see. But more importantly, we get the names of all these vehicle characters. We learn that the Volkswagen van is indeed Wheeljack as many had guessed. The Tow Truck is called Battletrap and from the looks of it it's most probably just a cool name for a bad guy with no relation to the G1 toy.

These Bayverse Terrorcons seem to have about as much to do with the original Terrorcons as Movie 5 Onslaught had to do with Bruticus. Which means no Abominus either. Looks like the 'bayverse' movies are dropping the ball yet again.

I mean they could have gone with the Prime-verse version and all be zombies. :-D

Battletrap, huh? Interesting! G1 Battletrap was hardly the most memorable character (I think he MIGHT have gotten some appearances in the Headmasters?) and it is a cool name, so I'm not exactly seething over the nameslap.
Wheeljack being a campervan is kinda neat. Whilst I am awfully fond of G1 Wheeljack and absolutely adore the Lancia Stratos (especially the specific one he turns into), it does add some much needed variety to the Autobot lineup rather than him being another sports car. Plus VW campers are cool, and if he gets a good SS toy I'll be all over it. I personally would have gone with green instead of brown as a homage to his OG deco but I don't mind it.

While toy reveals were the biggest part of the Transformers segment in Pulsecon 2021, there was some Rise of the Beasts news as well. Anthony Ramos, the star of the film, confirmed Cheetor to be in this film. You can see that segment at the 1:40:00 mark in the video below. That would mean that the Beast cast, so far, is made up of Optimus Primal, Airazor, Rhinox and Cheetor. We alsohave Nightbird, Scourge and Battletrap as Terrorcons and Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Mirage and Wheeljack as Autobots. No names have been given for Decepticons or Predacons in the film.

Please note, the picture in the thumbnail is of old concept art, we do not know how Cheetor will look like in this film yet.

That's AWESOME News!!! I'm excited to see news outlets still using my old Cheetor Concept design! I'm sure the design will change for the film, but now I'm wondering if this old design will be close? A few months ago I got hit with a takedown notice from one of Hasbro's lawyers and Brian Chapman tried to call me several times too. I guess we'll see what happens. :POPCORN:

We know from Deadline that Paramount has pushed back the release of Transformers 7: Rise of the Beasts by a whole year. Instead of coming out in June 2022, it will instead be released in June 2023, the 9th to be exact.

What makes this more interesting than possibly any other film delay is that more than any live action franchise, the Transformers franchise always has a major toyline assigned to it, often taking up entire retailer areas, as can be seen below. And the Rise of the Beast toys are already ordered by retailers like Target, which have the toys already in their system, for a 2022 release date. You can see the whole list of toys here (they are in spoiler free code names). And as we had seen in previous toylines for films, like Godzilla vs Kong, Black Widow, ect, the fact that the toys were already in the pipeline meant they were released anyway. So knowing all this, is it possible that we still get that massive toyline in 2022 instead of in 2023 when the movie releases? We'll see, but this is bound to be interesting.

Hopefully everything is okay behind the scenes,and they are just polishing the film.

High chances that the toys will look nothing as they appear in the movie. Remember the Beetle Bee? That was just within the normal timeframe. The movie producers could turn Scourge into a Skids-N-Mudflap duo riding each other's shoulders for all we know.

For over a year?! They are polishing Spider-man Far from Home right now and that film comes out in a month.

Yeah, if they take that time to redo the bot modes to have a different aesthetic, then it will be like the toys from the first film. I am more curious about whether or not the toys will release next year or they will wait for 2023.

This is actually good news, toy wise, as it means that the priority will be on Generation molds, including molds that they might have ended up cancelling.
If they already have designs made for folks like Polar Claw and Gears (who we know were originally planned for Kingdom, but cancelled), they will try to use such toys to fill in the gap so as to fill space.
I would also assume more cases of repaints, alas.

I guess that would explain why there are no ROTB Studio Series figures leaked for this year.

SS ROTB toys won't be out until 2 or 3 years after the original ROTB toys like with Last Knight which had a toyline well before Last Knight Studio Series.

I don't think that's how they're doing it anymore. The Bumblebee Movie released toys in Studio Series, rather than having its own separate line. It doesn't make sense to have a separate line anymore, then release "better" toys a few years later.
