    This is it. The final installation of our Slow News Day series. People love this opportunity everytime I post upcoming news because if I'm wrong, they'll never forget it -- but when I'm right, they're no where in sight to be found. :) 

    I'll eventually reveal WHERE I got this information, but I won't reveal from whom, or any specifics.

    Here's the juice.

    6" Titanium Transforming Characters
    - War Within Optimus Prime (known about)
    - Megatron (known about)
    - War Within Jetfire (known about)
    - G1 Scourge (known about)
    - War Within Thundercracker (known about)
    - Optimus Primal (orange and blue ... BM? Optimal Optimus?)
    - Rodimus Prime
    - Soundwave
    - Starscream
    - Cheetor
    - The Fallen
    - Ultra Magnus
    - Megatron

    3" Titanium
    - Hot Rod
    - Thundercracker
    - Galvatron
    - G1 Prime
    - Cliffjumper (repaint)
    - Sunstreaker
    - Soundwave
    - War Within Prime

    There are more listings, but I'll get in to that in a moment.


    Transformers the Movie

    I don't know how much of this I can go in to. I have exact descriptions of certain scenes, I have names of characters (based on toy listings), and I have licensing information. But I'll start with the little stuff.

    Your Transformers Movie Headquarters is...

    Target! Apparently they had a choice between choosing Spiderman-3 (now a Hasbro toy property?) or Transformers, and Target chose to go with Transformers. They will be the place to get things like Transformers gift cards, and stuff with Transformers all over. Think back to things like the original Spiderman, Star Wars Ep 2 and 3, and The Hulk. That kind of promotion stuff going on.

    Apparently you can't put the Transformers name on your product without adhering to a certain agreement -- your product has to have the ablility to "transform" ... think sweatshirt with the ability to transform in to a hoody, or something to that effect.

    As for movie scenes?


    SPOILER!












    Optimus Prime/Starscream chase scene, through a busy street. Lots of transforming, leaping over cars, transforming back. Apparently you get scenes like Transformers fighting on city buildings, blowing up, shooting through buildings, typical Michael Bay stuff. Bumblebee starts as a 74 Camaro, eventually turns in to a 07 (or 08?) Camaro, the frist new model in awhile. GM is planning to promote this new Camaro through Transformers quite a bit ... can we say Alternators Bumblebee? (speculation) A couple of these scenes seem to mimic the script Tony B reviewed awhile back, FYI












    The first toys listed for the Transformers movie are all in the 3" Titanium line. Heard a whisper (NOT CONFIRMED) that Soundwave is OUT of the movie altogether now, not even Soundbyte. Again, NOT CONFIRMED.


    And that's it! No, I won't tell you the toy names. So don't ask.

    Enjoy.

    Verrrrry interesting. Very interesting indeed. Yesss.

    I wonder what version of Megatron will be the other 6" Titanium.

    *prays it is WW Megatron or Don's Joe/Tf crossover cobra copter done while back*

    Listed was "War Within Megatron", but it's the one we've seen, which is said NOT to be "War Within", just a new Megatron. So I dunno.

    Size reversal, I guess. Galvatron used to tower over rodimus, and now it's payback.

    I am very surprised the line will last this long. I'm expecting Soundwave and Starscream to be WW versions, Megatron and Cheetor to be BW versions of some type, and Rodimus and Magnus to be G1 versions. This should give the line at least two years. Cool!

    Those ravaged wings would be awfully hard to do with diecast metal, and the transformation for TM2 Megatron is exceedingly complicated. I'm thinking Transmetal Megatron or (the real) War Within Megatron are more likely.

    Not really-- if you go by the expected release dates for the first three waves, we're getting a wave of 2 6" figs every other month. That would mean these 6" Titaniums would last us until around when the movie line hits.

    They were listed two at a time, FYI. Here's the wave by wave.

    (Wave 1 = first wave after Scourge and Optimus Primal)

    Wave 1- Rodimus Prime and Soundwave
    Wave 2- Optimus Prime and Starscream
    Wave 3- Cheetor and The Fallen
    Wave 4- Ultra Magnus and Megatron

    If you want to talk about the spoilers, I suggest you do so in the Movie Forum, because otherwise you're ruining things for those who chose to skip said Spoilers so as to not be "spoiled"
