    The 2009 Transformers Movie Line includes:

    TRANSFORMERS MOVIE FIGURES
    (Approximate retail price: starting from $12.99; Ages: 5 & up; Available: Summer 2009)
    For more than 25 years, TRANSFORMERS action figures have been known for their “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE” play pattern, with robots converting into vehicles, and then back to robots again. In 2009, TRANSFORMERS movie action figures featuring the new film’s most popular characters will be available in three scales: DELUXE, VOYAGER (larger scale), and LEADER (largest scale and includes lights and sounds). DELUXE includes 24 characters, VOYAGER will offer 11 characters, and LEADER will feature three, including OPTIMUS PRIME and JETFIRE.

    BUMBLEBEE MOVIE VOICE MIXER HELMET

    (Approximate retail price: $39.99; Ages 5 & up; Available: May 30, 2009)
    In the 2007 TRANSFORMERS movie, BUMBLEBEE was a scene-stealer and an instant favorite among kids and long-time TRANSFORMERS fans. Now, kids can pretend to be the fun-loving AUTOBOT character BUMBLEBEE with a role-playing helmet. The toy allows kids to mix their voice through a “radio” — just like BUMBLEBEE — and also features realistic robot battle sounds and radio tune-in phrases to add authenticity to the play experience.

    TRANSFORMERS MOVIE BUMBLEBEE PLASMA CANNON
    (Approximate retail price: $39.99; Ages 4 & up; Available: May 30, 2009)
    The ultimate companion to the BUMBLEBEE MOVIE VOICE MIXER HELMET, the TRANSFORMERS MOVIE BUMBLEBEE PLASMA CANNON allows kids to strap on the blaster and defend the Earth against its evil invaders. Features electronic lights and sounds.

    TRANSFORMERS MOVIE CONSTRUCTICON DEVASTATOR
    (Approximate retail price: $99.99; Ages 5 & up; Available: August 2009)
    The largest and most powerful foe the AUTOBOTS will encounter in this summer’s TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN is sure to be DEVASTATOR, a monstrous DECEPTICON robot made up of six separate construction vehicles known as the CONSTRUCTICONS. The TRANSFORMERS MOVIE CONSTRUCTICON DEVASTATOR allows kids to re-create the film’s awesome action sequences.

    TRANSFORMERS MOVIE POWER BOTS
    (Approximate retail price: $22.99; Ages 4 & up; Available: May 30, 2009)
    Designed to enable easy play for younger fans, TRANSFORMERS MOVIE POWER BOTS are 10-inch robot-only versions of favorite TRANSFORMERS characters. These large-scale, chunky action figures include lights, sounds and battle features. Two new POWER BOTS figures featuring robots from TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN will be released in 2009.

    TRANSFORMERS MOVIE MEGA POWER BOTS

    (Approximate retail price: $34.99; Ages 4 & up; Available: August 2009)
    Taking POWER BOTS to the next level with a second mode for “mega” action! Robots include OPTIMUS PRIME and DEVASTATOR. When the DEVASTATOR POWER BOT figure is face down, he appears to be six different vehicles, but when standing upright, he is the monstrous DECEPTICON, DEVASTATOR.

    TRANSFORMERS MOVIE HUMAN ALLIANCE
    (Approximate retail price: $29.99; Ages 5 & up; Available: August 2009)
    For the first time, the new TRANSFORMERS MOVIE HUMAN ALLIANCE collection allows kids to play with the human characters alongside the TRANSFORMERS. When the TRANSFORMERS are in vehicle mode, the human figures fit inside and can go along for the ride. When the TRANSFORMERS are in robot mode, the human figures can be positioned at different battle stations. Three different characters will be available in 2009 – complete with a 2 1/4-inch human action figure – including BUMBLEBEE and friend Sam Witwicky.

    TRANSFORMERS R.P.M’s MINI-VEHICLES SINGLE PACKS

    (Approximate retail price: $3.99; Ages 3 & up; Available: August 2009)
    When TRANSFORMERS characters are “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE,” they take on the look of some of most contemporary vehicles in the world, such as the Chevrolet Camaro Concept, Ford Mustang and GMC Topkick. For the first time ever, Hasbro offers mini vehicles of TRANSFORMERS characters that allow kids to engage in the classic play pattern of racing cars across the floor, as well as on play sets and tracks. The robot version of the character is featured on the underside of each non-converting vehicle for kids to easily identify the characters unique to the TRANSFORMERS universe. Twelve mini vehicles will be available in single packs in 2009, and include OPTIMUS PRIME/Semi Truck, BUMBLEBEE/Camaro, and BARRICADE/Mustang.

    TRANSFORMERS RPMs DEVASTATOR TRACK SET
    (Approximate retail price: $39.99; Ages 5 & up; Available: August 2009)
    Created specifically for the new TRANSFORMERS R.P.M.’s line of mini-vehicles, the TRANSFORMERS RPMs DEVASTATOR TRACK SET provides fast, mini-vehicle play within a dynamic track set by leveraging the iconic battle and high stakes drama found in the new movie. The track will bring DEVASTATOR to life and enable fans to re-enact the climactic movie battle between the AUTOBOTS and DEVASTATOR.

    Wait a sec...SIX Constructicons? Weren't there supposed to be seven?

    Though, I'm not shocked that Devastator's gonna cost $100. :redface2:  Time to look for a job...

    Yes, but it's not Animated.

    ^
    My new response and attitude towards everything ROTF since I learned Animated was cancelled. My enthusiasm for the franchise seriously dropped like *that*

    Is the fact that they're continuing the Universe line news, or are they talking about figures we've already seen?

    Cybertron Overload?

    Wow, I bet the Fast Action Battlers are going to be a hot sell at only $12.99!! (Tongue in cheek). I feel sorry for the poor parents who will buy them up as presents not knowing the difference.

    Ford Mustang, eh? That seems to confirm that Barricade is back as a police cruiser, for a short, pre-Audi, time at least.

    Awesome. but why would they wait 2 months after the movie to release Devastator...by that time, the hype and craze will be almost dead. Movie toys from the last film warmed shelves 2 months after the release date, didn't they?

    I think there are six transforming ones, and then the cement mixer that only transforms into the head and will probably get a seperate scout class or deluxe figure.
