Do you smell that, Seibertronians? It's the distinct smell of New York Toy fair, and that always means we see some new products revealed in the days proceeding it. Today we've got another (particularly cute) example of that rule, coming from the Portugal Hasbro website:
Transformers Collectable Edition Playskool Friends! Here's some project shots and official description that also mentions the characters included in the set, one of which, strangely enough, is Arcee.

The little ones will learn about teamwork and unleash their imagination with these 7 cute little autobots!
Includes: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Heatwave, Chase, Blades and Boulder.

As mentioned above, these are only listed so far on the Hasbro Portugal site, so world-wide release is not guaranteed, but is probable. Revel in the cuteness in the comments below!

Well that Swift Cheetah mode looks much better than Titans Stripes... but odd alt-mode. :P

I think they mean like a Power Drill.

To be honest, the hex-head on it makes me think "Lug Wrench" like for putting tires on a racecar. Which makes me wonder if he wasn't intended as part of the racing themes, explaining the Cheetah. But that's circumstancial happenstance,

Had he gotten to appear in the show, I could imagine Swift's altmode being repurposed for use as a Collision Foam Cannon.

Is the head hex shaped I thought it was flat head screw driver shaped and that was why I said it reminded me of a Jackhammer.

But if it is hex shaped yes it would look rather wheel-gun like.

I hope they release the whole lot of them in the UK at once as we never got the others here.

We ain't finished yet! After the galleries and official images of the products shown and revealed at Toy Fair 2017 in Javits Center, New York City, we now turn to more videos of the Hasbro Transformers section, ranging from The Last Knight to Robots in Disguise, via Rescue Bots and Titans Return!

The final clip comes from the Rescue Bots portion of the Hasbro stall, showing off the giant Optimus Prime race track, with OP himself becoming the launcher rig, the new Knight Bumblebee who turns into a dragon, and has dragon/weapon minicons (!), and some more new forms for the cast. Check it out below, and compare to our gallery here!

I await the images with interest.

I also noticed something else curious since the show has ended they seem to have toned back the number of Human figures a lot - and the 2 they have made recently look very little like they do on the show.
