    On this weekend in Melbourne Australia, is the annual Australian Toyfair trade show. Hasbro had their usual display, including Transformers.

    A lot of known stuff from Animated and Classics/Universe, but a couple of new items, including Classics Silverbolt (Ultra), Marvel Crossover figures (Wolverine, Venom, Spiderman, Human Torch, Hulk Green, Hulk Grey, Ironman), Animated Rollout Command Optimus, plus a few others.

    2 sneak peek photos here:

    The rest of the photos and video clips in 6 hours time when I get back home.

    Aye, could you please attach the pics here or photobucket em or sumthing? :) 
    Sliverbolt sounds good, more Autobot planes to counter the complete lack of them in animated!

    Yay. Even if you make an account you have to wait to be approved by an admin. Locked pictures FTL.

    that is really cool. Does this imply the possibility of a Universe Superion? That would be ridiculawesome! For some reason when I first heard Silverbolt I thought of the beast one. Kind of disappointed that it's the jet TBH. I think getting some beast wars characters in for universe would be really cool.

    Hasbro's really into busting up expectations for combiner teams, aren't they? :) 

    Silverbolt looks to have potential, though it's a red & white pointy jet to follow the red & white non-pointy jet that is Powerglide. I think Silverbolt may work a little better as a larger size toy though.

    So the Ultra Autobots are all Jets? That makes the Seekers small by comparison. Still a new Silverbolt in that scale is cool to me. :drool:

    Griffin is notorious for his sick sense of humour - you also have to be an Aussie resident to register on OzFormers to see the pics :p

    Thanks for the pics. I can't wait to find out more about the Marvel Crossovers. So far, I want one of each. Are the green and grey Hulk the same molds? What are Venom and the Human Torch's alt modes? Thanks again for the pics.

    Wow. Just wow. The Marvel guys are significantly better at this than the Star Wars guys. Let them do all of the Crossovers from now on. XD

    Wolverine looks almost exactly like Cybertron Overhaul. I see lots of people doing that.

    I didn't go to the Toyfair - it's a show run by Hasbro to promote their toys to retailers, so only retailers and select media people are allowed. Wrong city for me anyway... not that that stopped Griffin.

    These quotes from the OzFormers thread where I asked about the Corssovers:

    Guess we're waiting for Griffin to return.

    When I think of 'Silverbolt' I think 'OH DARK POISON OF MY HEART'.

    Marvel TFs don't look anything more to me than random kitbashes.
