Thanks to Hasbro on their official site, which can be accessed by clicking any of the images below, we have news of 2 new members of the Energon Igniters class of figures, along with new images of 3 more!

Up first, we have the 2 new reveals: Power Plus Soundwave and Ironhide! Soundwave looks a lot like he did in the movie, with a G1-esque robot mode, and a new van mode that is very Animated-esque, complete with a totally metal image of a jaguar and bird of prey on the side, evoking Laserbeak and Ravage. Ironhide is an 80's-esque version of his movie self in his red and yellow G1 colors, complete with movie head.

We also get better images of the surprisingly announced Ratchet, who has an 80's ambulance mode mostly in white but with some movie-verse green and his movie head in there. Also shown are new images of Blitzwing and Dropkick, both of whom are looking really good.

For the above news, we thank @Jackthetinker and @KamenSpider for passing along the news to us and for the sources.

On a quick note to finish things up, we also have some new Amazon descriptions for the upcoming Mission Vision figures, which include a Bumblebee and Shatter in their 1977 Camaro and jet modes, respectively. The descriptions, given prior to the reveal images, give us an idea what to expect from the figures.

Let us know what you think of all these reveals below!

Lol, is that supposed to be a jaguar and a condor? Why have we not seen something like this before? Anyway, these guys look great, will probably pickup Soundwave, Blitzwing, and Dropkick if I see 'em. ;)^

Btw, you guys noticed how Blitzwing's jet mode kibble is extremely reminiscent of his G1 toy's? Looks pretty similar, don't ya think?

Am I the only one who would like a voyager class toy of that 80's pickup truck Ironhide?

Much better altmode than the Vanette in my view.

Also yes, the airbrushed Jaguar and Eagle on Soundwave is Awesome.

Interestingly enough I think Dropkick looks better here then the SS figure. Go figure.

Can anybody tell me why Blitzwing looks like Starscream? And why he looks nothing like his Megatronian tank self from the legends class?

Note, I have not seen the BB movie, so dont know if this version is accurate to the movie. ;) :-D

I would not mind an 80's pickup Ironhide like this, it is a cool concept!

Truck >>> van

Jaguar Eagle is a thing Soundwave now needs to use more

Dropkick does look far better than his SS self. He also looks to make a good Rotorstorm!

Blitzwing is a seeker in the movie, and they all have that body type. He's not a triple changer in the movie, so the tank toy is kinda just for fun. As for why they went with Blitzwing for the Starscream looking guy, the world may never know

Thanks. Looks interesting. Wonder if we'll get an SS version of that jet mode.

Would go well in Purple with SS Starscream and SS Thundercracker. To complete the traditional Seekers in Movie form, each with their own unique altmode.

Raise your hand if you not only want that Soundwave with the sweet mural, but also want a repaint into Soundblaster, with an A-Team van alt mode.

*hand frantically raised*

Speaking of Soundwave, here's where I'm keeping my Leader-class one. And I was able to put the tablessettes from the Cassette Pack in his box with room to spare

Whoa, I’m really digging that Ironhide! I really like the design, very movieverse but with a little G1 flair to it. Never too much movie Ironhide!

I haven’t picked up any of the Energon igniters outside of the speed series, but I’m wondering if I should get the power series Camaro Bee (without the core). We don’t get nearly enough Bumblebees with his battle mask and shoulder launchers!

Raises all five limbs. On a serious note, we need to make sure that we keep in mind there's a strong possibility that we might not see all these figures released. Bumblebee has not gone higher than 3rd place for the last two weekends and will probably start dropping off.

When has a movie's performance at the box office ever been related to toy releases?

The last knight? The movie under performed and people lost interest quickly so stores didn't stock the latter waves.

Yaaaaaaaawnnn... it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to get excited about any of the official Bumblebee movie toys. The real shame too is that the Takara exclusive Legendary Optimus is one of the best toys out this year, but nobody stateside will see it or appreciate it without searching it out online.

They should have just leaned forward with some solid Studio Series releases (Dropkick was really pretty great, but REALLY should have been a voyager). Nobody will remember Energon Ignitors in a years' time. These things will all be at discount retail early this year, as NONE of them are moving on local shelves here (and they are taking space that needs to open up for Siege/SS; don't even get me started how the last waves of PotP just fizzled and never materialized here).

There are a lot of podcasts out there that need to come to grips with how meh this movie was. Even though it had more heart than all the Bayverse combined, that was still a pretty ham-fisted attempt at Spielbergianism.

Not exactly what I was expecting for Soundwave but definitely digging the rock n roll 80s van! So far I've only been able to claim the Target Exclusive reissue of Soundwave as the official one from the movie. I'll probably bend the rules and claim Siege Shockwave and Soundwave as me. lol

Chuck, IIRC Hasbro themselves have said that the TLK toyline actually did fairly well. Yes, most of the Wave 1 Deluxes shelfwarmed for a good bit, but I think that's more because they were not exactly the best assortment - Bumblebee was the wrong body, Slash (while better-colored than the AoE release) was still a toy-only character, and Berserker (who shelfwarmed the longest) was someone who did nothing but dangle in jail briefly. And they didn't really have any sort of gimmick to make up the lack of appeal.

Acolyte, where the smeg have you been that the Bumblebee Movie toys have been present while there are no pegs and shelf slots reserved for Studio Series? Or that Bumblebee toys have been crowding into those spaces? Everywhere I've been has had the Studio Series spaces perfectly intact, and the Bumblebee toys (most of which fall under "Cheaper and with a kid-appeal gimmick) are at a shelf density that suggests they're shifting healthily while also being re-stocked. I would imagine that the Bumblebee line has priority for re-stocking - it's being actively promoted by a recently-released movie after all.

And the last wave of PotP did not "fizzle and never materialize". I saw it, and I saw the revision waves including plenty of Moonracer (although my budget for that trip went mostly to gifts for cousins so I couldn't get one).
