    Hasbro website update, sort of

    NEW: Cybertron Metroplex

    Alternators Optimus Prime, now linked from both Cybertron and Alternators product listings (which explains the toys listed as "you might also like")

    Alternators Mirage, now linked only from Alternators product listing

    Entry for original red box release of Prowl removed (this was the infamous "Red Alert" listing)

    Also new: More character art added to Alternators page. Optimus Prime, Meister (red box artwork) and Mirage... Energon Mirage. :rolleyes2

    Pretty cool, Megs Bio makes it sound like the figures are from post-Beast Machines.

    Megatron's bio is pretty damn cool. The "destroyed countless lives in his mad quest to exterminate the Transformers" part sounded odd until I reached the part that confirms the bio as post-Beast Machines.

    *blink blink* Primal's bio is actually the story blurb from the side of the Beast Wars 10th boxes. Way to go, Hasbro Web Team.

    One of these things is not like the others,
    One of these things just doesn't belong,
    Can you tell which thing is not like the others
    By the time I finish my song?


    EDIT: I don't remember, did we ever get a confirmation of an official "Brute Mode" for Cybertron Metroplex?

    Excellion's Cyber Key code is also accepted - but it goes to a blank page! Guess the content for him and the other recent ones is forthcoming.

    As always, you can watch Hasbro's web team update their site in slow motion.

    There seems to be a lot of emphasis in those bios on Megatron and has crew being crazy. I don't think Megatron was, nor were any of the Predacons, except Rampage, who was clearly a sociopath.

    Just once I wish an 'official' site would get the lead on leaks. Nothing worse than a site offering 'exclusive first pix' of something that's been on sale for a month.

    If Hasbro say,,,,, in the next 30 days, "accidentally" released a teaser of some of the movie concept designs, they'd be swamped.

    wow, i must have missed the first pix of Primal and Megatrons art ~ the art makes Primal look even more like Prime in a monkey suit than before, i'm starting to wonder if that was deliberate...

    Hasbro's website had the scoop on Alt Optimus Prime last year.

    And neither Mirage nor Metroplex nor BWX Primal and Megs are out in stores yet.

    Energon Mirage? :confused:  J/K

    It's cool that Megatron's bio places the toy post-BM.
