Thanks to Jarodimus, we now know a little bit more about 3 characters that are soon to be a part of many collector's collections...Activator Cliffjumper, Bumper Battler Lockdown, and Universe 25th Inferno.

The information originates at Walmart.com where they have posted the descriptions for these characters on their pre-order pages, as well as, some stock photos. Look carefully at the descriptions below for the link to the title of the news story.

Activators Cliffjumper
Because of his temper, Cliffjumper has never been much of a spy. Even though he works in Intelligence, he doesn't interact much with the enemy. Instead, he collects information from field agents and finds the important bits for his superiors. Of course, knowing everything there is to know about the Decepticons makes him a little tense, which is why he's always ready for a fight. Add this cool Transformers action figure to your collection.


Bumper Battlers Lockdown
Lockdown hunts the Autobots for fun and profit. Every time he catches a target, he strips it of everything useful, and attaches any cool weapons or gear to his own body. He is the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy because he always brings in his Autobot. Gear up for on-the-go fun with this Transformers Prowler Vehicle. Press the robot down for vehicle mode or press the bumper and watch the robot pop right up. With fun electronic battle and speech sounds, this quick-conversion warrior is ready to roll out.


Universe 25th Inferno
Prepare to roll into battle with this Generation 2 Series Autoboto ally! Converts from robot mode to fire-rescue-vehicle mode. It's an awesome figure to add to your Transformers collection.


Interesting to see Inferno listed as G2 instead of G1, which included a water cannon, and this new version has no ladder, and an added water cannon. This looks to be our first release of a Generation 2 based 25th figure.

Intriguing. I hope we see a few more G2-inspired characters in Universe. Particularly ones that weren't G1 characters. Rapido, Leadfoot, Manta Ray, some of the LaserRods.

I'm hoping to see an Ultra or Leader class G2 Megatron (new with articulation!)

Ah, G2. Love those comics. So dark, so unnecessarily violent.

I'm hoping for a Jhiaxus figure.

I wonder if this will open the door to G2 repaints. Maybe we'll get a G2 Ramjet.

"Not Available Online"

Booo!

I just ordered a Walmart-exclusive Movie Jolt from Walmart.com, and was really impressed with how quickly it shipped and arrived. I wish all their TFs were available online.

G2? Something on this figure reminds me of G1 Inferno. Maybe the face, the firetruck mode and the big square torso. I just hope that Takara realeses this one too.

That makes sense since the G2 version is simple the G1 with a new spring-loaded launcher, and/or a water cannon added, I do believe. I don't actually own him, but have seen him enough to know that it's the same figure basically.

Yeah, exactly. I have both a G1 and a G2 Inferno. Spring-loaded weapon and G2 Autobot stamp aside, they're pretty much identical, except maybe for use of diecast. Don't remember and I don't feel like going to basement and finding them to check. :P

Inferno goes both ways from what I have been told by Red Alert.

Really cool pics, although I'd like to see the alt mode.

I had a MOSC Inferno from the G2 line and at one point I believe a loose one (I used to ebay sell more than collect)

Of all the G2 molds it was probably the closest to the G1 (other than grey Grimlock)
