    Enough spam, guys.

    The rumors for Universe so far are:

    Voyagers Leo Prime, Overload and Vector Prime. Rumored to be repaint of Ligerjack / Leobreaker, Overload of Armada and Vector Prime of Cybertron, no idea what colours or if to expect any remolding. May even be new interpretations of the characters in the case of the latter two.

    Deluxes Dinobot and Starscream - Dinobot a probable new mold in the style of 25th Cheetor, Starscream anyone's guess.

    All these were in store listings.

    Gift sets - Bruticus and Superion. We've seen two repainted helicopters from Bruticus and a tiiiiiiny Superion repaint image. They may be boxed sets like the Classics Constructicons.

    Also, a buttload of Minibots as Legends class toys. Warpath, Wheelie, in addition to what we've seen. I've seen speculation of them being two packs, which I find a little unlikely.

    Obvious recolors of existing toys:

    Smokescreen out of Silverstreak / Prowl
    Ratchet out of Ironhide (prototype seen for a Henkei one, probably getting a domestic release in 2009)
    Grapple out of Inferno, especially given the design of Inferno's water cannon.
    Red Alert out of Sunstreaker / Sideswipe (which I've seen an unconfirmed rumour of already today)
    Cliffjumper out of Legends Bumblebee

    Really? Awesome.


    Also, Hasbro hinted towards something at SDCC. I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure it was Wheeljack.

    Wheeljack was asked about, their comment was basicall "we're not ready to talk about it yet", but the thing is neither the person asking the question nor the person answering the question mentioned any specific line, so for all we know he could be in any one of the three lines that'll be around in the next year or so (Animated, Universe, Movie). Would be cool if he was in Universe and the Movie toy lines, if not those and Animated.

    probably swipes, cuase it fights the animation model better, but does it matter? you could do both if you wanted if they used that mold

    Sideswipe is a better choice for Red Alert just for the head.

    I expect all of those to be made, but Sunstorm is the only one I see being a Botcon exclusive.

    Ratchet won't be botcon. The others though may be except for grapple, because the inferno mold won't have been on the market long enough at that point, ditto to red alert and hound swindle. Though I bet those could be 2010 botcon easily. Smokescreen just screams botcon, and I hope they do a couple variations too, like Alternators paint scheme and G1 inspired paint scheme. 2009 botcon I expect to be more multi timeline centric. Having a story that has a character from all Universes to reflect the anniversary. Or it could just be even heavier G1 associated again this year.

    I'm hoping ratchet and red alert are the same wave. That'd rock. Finally some medical support.
