A new product page over at valued site sponsor BigBadToyStore reveals some possible new figures in our horizons. The product page is for Generations Deluxe Wave 3, which is composed of,

Cybertron Megatron
Cybertron Soundwave
Darkmount
Red Alert

Cybertronian or simply Cybertron is the designated name for toys related to the War For Cybertron video game. We've seen WFC Megatron and Darkmount prior....

....however War For Cybertron Soundwave, Ratchet, as well as Starscream have been floating around as rumors. Thus if Soundwave will have a toy, it will also likely mean that Ratchet and Starscream will have ones as well.

It is unknown whether or not Red Alert is for his War For Cybertron persona, or the Henkei figure that never saw it's Classic's counterpart in Universe 2008.

Ratchet ≠ Red Alert


does this mean we will be getting henkei red alert in the states?

Ya, I don't think this will be WfC Ratchet. One thing worth noting is that Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron and Soundwave all have Cybertron in front of their names, but Red Alert doesn't. If I had to guess I would say that it will be a repaint of Sunstreaker, so I guess it will be similar to the Henkei figure, just like Thrust is. It would be cool if it was a new mold though or even a remold.
Sounds like a really good wave of figures. Looking forward to all of those figures. The Generations line is looking really good.

Red Alert can be whatever it wants to be, as I'm not concerned in any form.

WFC Soundwave already has an open spot on my shelf waiting for him, right beside the space to be filled by SG Soundwave when FP gets of their ass and releases him.

They better, or else the East Cybertron Trading Co. is gonna hunt 'em down and MAKE them (or kill them, wither way). Thunderstrike is based off of Soundwave, so they better make one, so THunderstrike will be happy... :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :CON: :CON: :CON:

Err... You made Thunderstrike with a Tapedeck altmode, Neither WFC SW (Armoured Car) or SG SW (Minivan) fits so you might want to calm down there.

Inside jokes are never funny if no one knows what you're talking about :P

As for Red Alert... as much as we'd all like it to be Henkei Alert it could be Animated Red Alert for all we know. I'm guessing fans would want that more anyways.

I don't know if I've missed this already but is Darkmount supposed to be Straxus? The robot mode yells it to me.

Yessir. Hasbro couldn't get the name rights to Straxus so they went with Darkmount. But for all intents and purposes it's Lord Straxus.

Which begs the question, how in the hell that happened? Straxus is an obscure name to already have been taken, and Darkmount sounds MORE likely to have been taken.

As for Red Alert, I'm more than fairly certain it's gonna be the American version of the Henkei figure... and now I'm beating myself over the head about a repaint I did, but that aside I'm curious as to how they plan to do colors?

G1 toy accurate colors, maybe?

Ok, couple things
Numba 1: East Cybertron Trandong Co. is my Heavy Metal War team, so now that we got that all figured out...

Numba 2: Well guess what Soundwave trasnformed into when he got to Earth? A TAPEDECK/CASSETTE PLAYER. So when I mean by I based him off, I based him off his G1... Oooh, I thought of a good idea for Heavy Metal War! But I'm not gonna mention it, for fear I might get reported for off topic. :-B

Very excited about Darkmount and Drift, pre-ordered both from BBTS.

The WFC stuff should be easier to find - i assume Hasbro will release the toyline in decent quantities to coincide with the release of the game?

Then again, we Europeans may not see any WFC or Generations 'till Xmas...

Huh. The Quartet is called series 3, but there were the only other announcements since series 1. Who is series 2?

Oh SWEEEEET! They're finally making a new Soundwave toy! It's been so long! And if they made him compatible with the old cassettes, well.

I have no doubts Starscream is coming. That's easy redeco money waiting to happen. And we all know Ratchet is an easy retool/redeco into Ironhide.

Eeeexcellent news. :D This line is shaping up to be a good one. Soundwave, Ratchet and Starscream would be instant buys. Megatron looks ridiculous so far, but I still have hope he's mistransformed. I can skip on Red Alert since I don't collect him, but for everyone else who's hoping it's similar to the Henkei one, I hope so too. I may just happily chug through this year collecting Generations exclusively. 8)

Let's hope Soundwave will look better than Bumblebee. While we're at it, let's hope Red Alert looks comparable to the Japanese version for once.

Really not having high hopes for Generations. If we get Dirge in the next wave and then maybe a new mold after that, there will have only been THREE new molds for Classics. Two of which aren't even based off any iconic or existing toy.
