    As the title suggests, there wasn't anything new (that I was allowed to show), so this is just for people who like looking at toy displays.

    Toyfair Australia pics and info

    Not a lot of photos, as the Australian Toyfair prohibits photos unless you are main media (but I get permission to take a few photos each year).

    Items on display...
    Wave 1 Beast Hunters figures & Wave 2 Deluxes.
    Both Beast Hunters Ultimates are general release here and were on display.
    Generations FOC toys and the two Voyager Triplechangers in packaging.
    No Metroplex toy, just a box mock-up and images (colour Metroplex and greyscale Scamper - I wasn't permitted to show that one though)
    BotShots Wave 1 figures, & Wave 2 singles.
    Construct-Bots Wave 1 (prototype toys that were at US Toyfair).
    Kreo Beast Hunters, Combiners and Wave 1 blind-packs.
    Both Kreo 5-pack Minifigures (with the mystery figure on the end)

    "Nothing New?" I think the note of "three faces" on Blitzwing's box is news. (unless I missed it) His bio is clearly Animated's.

    Three faces! Excellent. I am completely okay with Animated Blitzwing's characteristics being carried forward.

    >3 faces

    I'm guessing the third face we haven't seen yet is based on the crazy face since the G1ish one already has characteristics of the angry face.

    Also I haven't read about the kreon five packs before. Those will be hella helpful for getting extra parts without having to buy the entire kit.

    Interesting the Metroplex box (I think) is blurred out.

    Hasbro AU requested that Griffin (The Photographer) Blur out certain things they didn't want to be shown; Normally photography is a no-no at Australian Toyfairs but Hasbro decided to be generous this year (Previous years have had to of been somewhat more covert). :wink: :) 
    (Australia's Toyfair isn't open to the general public)

    Yes! Three faces!

    And I wonder how much of this stuff shown at the Australian ToyFair we'll actually get in Australia. Nice to see Wave 3 of Generations Voyagers when we've been sitting on Wave 1 for about five months...

    I love that Animated is even influencing established G1 characters in their own toyline now. The three faces thing was obvious from the previous photos, but that bio is just awesome.

    the "nothing new" needs to be edited out of the topic title, given we have new bios to stare at.

    Sorry... the "nothing new" bit was referring to there being no new toys shown, that we didn't see at the US Toyfair.

    If this is the first evidence in writing that Generations Blitzwing will have three faces, well I don't want to jump the gun, but isn't this the first we've seen of both his and Springer's bios? The stuff about Springer fighting alone and never failing is interesting to say the least!

    Preview for a new KREO animation. Looks like shockwave, Megatron, and thundercracker are judgeing some contest.

    the iron man flipchanger-style toys are out at my walmart already, if that's of importance.


    as I see more stock photos of blitzwing, I think I might actually want him...
