    Just received my off-month TFCC magazine, and for those of you who are club members, you know that we get an order form listing products "in stock" at the club store and available preorders these months. Well, this month's order form has some listings of toys we haven't heard of (or at least haven't been officially confirmed yet), so I thought I'd share.

    The preorder deadline listed for these is March 3, so I'd imagine April is when we'd see these new Animated products:

    Animated Deluxe Wave 3 '09: Arcee, Electrostatic Soundwave
    Animated Voyager Wave 3 '09: Hydrodive Bumblebee, "Golfire" Grimlock


    Keep in mind that these are just listings, so I have no idea what these products look like or anything. And I'm not sure what's up with "Golfire"-- I'm guessing it's a typo or shorthand for something longer, but I can't figure out what. "Goldenfire," perhaps?

    What? A Bumblebee in the voyager class?
    And no new characters for that class either.

    edit: Well I guess they did say the new smaller Bumblebee would come with a large accessory.
    I thought they were just talking about something the size of Prowl's traffic light or sidecar.

    What if it's just the Deluxe Bumblebee that's having a class upgrade? So that the new Bumblebee can fit into the Deluxe line.

    Arcee will be an absolute must own.
    Electrostatic Soundwave sounds fun! I do wonder just what partner figure he will come with though. I'm thinking one of three: Buzzsaw, Ravage, or Ratbat.
    We knew they were making a new in-scale Bumblebee, but I never expected him to be a Voyager Class figure! I'll be interested in seeing what the promised accessory is.
    I have no idea what a Golfire is, but I like the sound of it! Anyone think maybe it could mean a G2 paint job for Grimlock?

    Beastbot X, thank you for the information! :D

    Doing a quick Google search for "Golfire" results in mixed links for "Golf Ireland", and some sort of brand or company that makes firefighting equipment.

    Why is Bumblebee a Voyager? I hope Electrostatic Soundwave is repainted to look like Static Shock. Can't wait for pics of all these.

    Cant wait to see what some of those look like. I am guessing Electrostatic Soundwave is a repaint along with Grimlock.

    A gold grimlock would be pretty cool. I imagine if they do him repainted, the will do all the dinos.

    Hopefully its not a repaint though and something new...

    Maybe Go! Grimlock? an ! instead of an l ?

    Could be some incomplete text for 'gold fire'. Might just be a repaint.

    Oh yeah, just plain "Goldfire" is probably what they're going for. Could be Hasbro's way of saying "God Fire", so yeah, Rattrap007's probably right, it'll be a red/orangey redeco.

    Anyone else think that it's possible that this new Bumblebee will be the forementioned smaller mold with Captain Fanzone and his mini-sub?

    It'd be kind of cool if they worked the angle of making that little sub transform into something useful like Prowl's sidecar.

    Wasn't it said that the new smaller BB with big accessory would still be in the Deluxe class?

    I think that may have been an assumption on our part.

    *searches*

    It would appear you're correct. Here's the pertinent bit from the original OzFormers post:
    Must be a BIG accessory.
