    I would like to know something about figures from this news:

    - Two Movie Wheeljack/Que toys – One toy with the movie head and another with the “Classic” head [In my opinion they may have gone for a Transformers: Dark of the Moon Prequel Comic – Rising Storm Wheeljack]
    - Two Mirage/Dino figures
    - Mirage/Dino Human Alliance figure
    - Decepticon Remold of Mirage [Just like DarkSteel from Sideswipe]
    - Purplish Laserbeak repaint with a different head [Buzzsaw]

    We know there will be Wheeljack with awful movie head, but rest of figures are unconfirmed yet. Or I missed some information?

    Wheeljack is the only one confirmed, both movie and "classic" head. The rest aren't even rumor worthy given the source.

    The source for all that news was shadow2879, who was proven to be a liar (not sure on how though).

    The only thing to say is true from all that is there are two planned DOTM Wheeljack figures (movie version and one with a 'G1' style head) and that the DOTM Laserbeak instructions show a different head.

    And like ScottyP said, this is more sutied for Toy Discussion than News.

    He claimed to be Hasbro staff. Design staff, i believe, and did a very poor job of backing the claims up, ultimately creating a second account in an attempt to verify himself.....using the same IP address.

    Well, in the "prime toys dcpi for target" thread someone posted a full list of new Target dcpi's and there's one for deluxes, one for voyagers, and one for optimus w/trailer ($30), all marked "movie all stars" or some such thing. Strangely, with all the hype over prime toys, no one is paying attn to the movie stuff. I bet some movie figs slip out at Target in the next week or two and BAM these questions will be answered.

    Nothing else has been revealed in an official capacity except for the Laserbeak retool, but alternate toolings in instructions don't necessarily confirm new product releases.

    What about Buzzsaw? We've seen the alternate head, so wouldn't he be confirmed? (Then again, he couldn't be named Buzzsaw)

    ...Wasn't the head used on Botcon Magnus originally revealed in the instructions for RTS Prime?

    Point being: An Instruction reveal doesn't guarantee anything.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Laserbeak retool saw release, other stuff I'd hope for would be that alternate head for the Lugnut mold we saw in his instructions. I don't remember any other non-Generations figures having alternate head molds in their instructions off the top of my head aside from Powerizer Prime.
