    We've broken our news in to three separate parts, one for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Each day we will release the news we've been given and post it here, in the threads, for everyone to discuss.

    Today - <b>Transformers Classics</b> and <b>Transformers Titanium</b>.

    I'm going to state this right off the bat - yes, I was able to see pictures on some of this stuff. No, I do not have any physical copy of any picture. No, the pictures NOT circulating on the 'net. No, I can not get you a picture, even if you swear on your mother's grave.

    So, here we go.

    Transformers Classics
    - Cliffjumper
    - Ramjet

    I do not know their size. I do not know if Cliffjumper is a redeco or a repaint. Same goes for Ramjet. All I know is they are listed as upcoming products in the Classics line. No, nothing about a Skywarp or Thundercracker. Sorry :( 

    - Grimlock

    I've seen a couple pictures. Color sheet that was shown a few weeks back looks pretty spot-on. Looks to be pretty posable, even in T-Rex form. Overall, if you can get past the different transformation (from what we've seen in pictures and the color sheet) from what we're used to, he should be a pretty good figure.

    - Mirage

    The best way to describe his robot mode is to have you think Energon Prowl, but not so kiddy-feeling. He does resemble G1 Mirage in vehicle mode, but he looks more like Energon Prowl in robot mode. Not sure on posability, picture was pretty small :) 

    - Jetfire

    This figure could be the best figure in the line. If you enjoyed the G1 style for the jet mode, you're in luck - it's pretty much the same, even with the extra red armor/weaponry thingy whatever (I do not own a G1 Jetfire). In robot mode, he resembles mostly the G1 toy, but does have what feels like a G1 cartoon chest. Apparently he has two heads/faces? (like in War Within, a "battle mask" or whatever, so he has both cartoon and G1 toy faces/heads). Not entirely sure, couldn't tell in the picture, was actually told that.

    - Mini-Cons

    They're in Transformers Classics packaging. But I'm not sure if they are considered "Classics" figures, or if Hasbro is just continuing the Mini-Con releases but in Classics packaging. Most of everything coming out this fall is in the same Classics packaging, so it's hard to say. The name <b>Nightscream</b> was mentioned as one of the Mini-Cons. Something else about a tank, helicopter, and a boat? Again, I'm not sure, that was word of mouth, no pictures.


    Transformers Titanium

    The most notable figures coming out are in the 6" transformable portion of the line. I only recall a few of them and will have to double check on the rest, but here's what I got.

    6" Transformable
    - Optimus Primal
    - Cheetor
    - Ultra Magnus
    - Someone from War Within? Checking...

    Names listed, unsure of size
    - Rodimus
    - Galvatron
    - Sunstreaker
    - Predaking

    I saw a picture of the 6" Scourge. He is G1. He does look just like the cartoon, colors and everything. And I have to agree with those who have mentioned they've seen it - he looks awesome.

    That's all I have for today.

    Tomorrow?

    Transformers Attatix, Star Wars Transformers, and the end of Transformers Cybertron.

    Wow, loving all the new news.:D 

    I am eagerly awaiting pics of Grimlock, Mirage, Jetfire, and Titanium Scourge and Ultra Magnus.

    Interesting to see a 6" transformable Cheetor, but I find it confusing as I still see the Wave 1 BW 10th versions on the shelf still...

    *crosses fingers that the unnamed WW Titanium is either Grimlock or Megatron*

    nope, classics.

    man, thanks for the info kickback. your topic title is very misleading.

    6 inch transformable titanium magnus, eh? While I'm betting that it's a white redeco of war within prime, I really hope it's the real magnus, complete with trailer.

    Thats 5 out of the likely 6 wave2 Classics figures (4 deluxes and Jetfire as a voyager)... I'm so hoping that last spot (other voyager) is Soundwave!

    Can't wait for 6" Scourge now...

    ...also, the Titanum Predaking is 3" - Casefresh has had preorders up for a while.

    The 6" Cheetor is interesting, I guess it'll be the TransMETAL one? Eh? Eh?

    I hope Magnus is more than a white Prime.

    It's important to note this information DID NOT come from anyone involved in the Transformers design team or upper Hasbro management. This information DID NOT come from anyone involved or affiliated with the Transformers Club run by Master Collector/Fun Publications.

    This is a new source altogether.

    That color sheet for a weird tank Megatron? I know nothing about that what so ever. The robot mode shown wasn't even similar to the G2 tank Megatron figure they've made. But I'll get in to that on Sunday... :)
