    Interesting. The Combaticons trademark interests me the most out of the three. I wander what they're going to use it for. Maybe a Robot Heroes 5 pack of some sort? It's hard to say. I actually wouldn't mind a repaint of the Energon Bruticus Maximus mold in a gift set like they did for Devastator, but I wouldn't want it to be a Walmart Exclusive. I still can't wait to see what they've got planned for the Fallen. I'm not really sure what the others could be. The closest thing to Flare Up I've been able to find is Signal Flare from Energon. Would be interesting if this name turned out to be a follower of the Fallen or something. As for Stripmine, the name was used in Cybertron for Quickmixe's minicon's name. Not really sure what they'll use it for now, though like Flare Up, it would be interesting to see it used for one of the Fallen's followers/troops, since he's supposedly getting his own faction in the Universe line.

    Combaticons! Yay!
    I'm thinking it might be a Legends class 5-pack, or a repaint of the Energon Bruticus mold.

    Combaticons would RULE for Universe! That would be awesome if we got a set. Come on Hasbro you already are releasing Onslaught! Bring on the Combaticon team!

    Some fans have been alerting Hasbro to trademarks that they haven't re-registered.

    Monzo from the Allspark.com was responsible for alerting Hasbro to register many of the G1 names we've seen lately, which is why he got props on both Universe Onslaught (MONZO 12782) and Acid Storm (his bio).

    Yeah they redid the Energon Constructicons for Classics, I'd expect something like that again before a new set of figures (although that would be cooler).

    Flare Up just reminds me of all those Herpes commercials they run on afternoon tv where people are always out bike riding (and I hear it's possible to spread Herpes even if you don't have Flare Up?!).

    does anyone know if theres any indication that universe onslaught could combine with any other figures (to make bruticus)?
    or is this just a hopeless dream on my part?

    That wouldn't make everyone happy. The combaticons G1 colours are horribly ugly. If given the choice between the G1 and G2 colurs. I'd take the G2.

    Well I hope its not another repaint of any existing toys, and I hope the Combaticons are a combiner set. Just a little hope is all.

    Agreed, can't wait to see what they do with these guys. As for Stripmine, the only transformer I can find with his name is the mini-con partner to Cybertron Quickmix.

    Isn't flareup the 2005 Botcon exclusive bike that was a repaint of energon Arcee? She came with Ratchet in the two pack that was sold that year at Botcon. I smell more repaints of Arcee coming up in the next movie line.....

    Let's say that is some knowledge that I haven't heard before so it is interesting info to me and It will be interesting to see how these Trademarks work out (for example, Since Classics had Constructicon Devastator..perhaps Universe/Classics 2.0 will have a giftset for Combaticons in a similar fashion).

    At Botcon 2008, I did try to suggest a name to replace lost Motormaster so in my thank you to them for tour during 2007, I suggested "Motorcrasher" as a possible replacement name.
