    I hope TFW didn't get shafted like last round... anyway, here's this month's batch from various other sites:

    Allspark

    TFormers

    TFWiki

    Parry Game Preserve

    Seibertron

    Action-Figs

    TFViews

    Allspark got some interesting hints about upcoming fiction.

    TFormers for some reason think that the Seacons were reissued by Takara.

    TFWiki got the shaft with the bad marketing guy who gives fluffy stock answers.

    Seibertron got someone else answering their questions who shows an ounce of personality, humor and likes to insert some hints even when he can't conclusively answer questions.

    TFViews got an interesting (and amusing) answer regarding Ze Little One!

    Those Allspark questions were an utter waste.

    Some nice info!

    I love how TFWiki posts a valid questions about the extra Devastator parts, and Hasbro replies with: that's a great question, we're not going to answer it. Here's the names for the parts you already know, now get lost! :lol

    The two that stood out to me in all of those was that Robot Heroes will be done after ROTF. This makes me a sad panda as I love these little guys and I was hoping that we'd see the unreleased Universe ones after the movie line was finished.

    The other answer that jumped out at me was the one that said "Ze Little One" was based off of the Bulldozer model. (ie Rampage) It was actually the Payloader or Scrapper model that was striped down for parts. Personally, I'd like to see a Deluxe version of that character (since he did have a robot mode in the movie) made rather than a third painting of the Rampage mold.

    Also, I have to ask, where the heck is TFW's Answers?

    They said one masterpiece figure as a store exclusive in 2010.

    Allsparks fiction answer was very interesting, Hasbro does indeed have big plans for this new universe they're working on.

    Some interesting answers this time and, as a whole, the questions were better than usual too. The Masterpiece figure coming out is obviously Grimlock, based on past Q+As, but the 'hint-hint' about a release similar to SDCC09 Soundwave is interesting. I think the Seibertron question about the movie molds might have been more interesting if they'd asked whether Hasbro can use the movie molds in the future without having to pay any rights/compensation to Paramount, not whether Hasbro owns the molds or not.

    And, again, where are TFW's answers? I've never even heard of "Parry Game Preserve" and they managed to get answers, yet TFW, which I'd consider one of the top 3 TF fan sites, doesn't. The hell?

    does "Maybe, just maybe, we might decide to include this in an upcoming exclusive." mean a new toy, or part of Legends Devastator, confirming its an exclusive...?

    Yeah, apparently, his name is "Scrapmetal". Hasbro has said that "maybe" they'll release him as an exclusive for something.

    TBH, this news doesn't excite me. Scrapmetal is probably going to be a repaint, and I'd really rather they had focused on bringing out Scrapper, Hightower and Overload.
