    I was seibertron.com and found this stating whta will be released in universe and good things are getting released.

    Hasbro announced a slew of goodies for all of us Transformers fans. If you have some questions, please ask in this thread and I'll do my best to answer the questions with what I heard.

    TRANSFORMERS MOVIE
    Over $700 million box office worldwide
    #1 DVD in the USA in 2007


    TRANSFORMERS TOY LINE
    #1 action figure toy brand (npd data)
    Movie Deluxe - action toy of the year
    #1 fans


    TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED
    2008 Product Update
    Toy Launch - June 22nd
    Deluxe Sentinel Prime - Sept 08 street date
    Deluxe Swoop
    Deluxe Elite Guard Bumblebee - Sept 08 street date (going to be doing more themed repaints due to the equity that they have in some of the main characters)
    Leader Class Ultra Magnus - Sept 08 (HUGE round of applause)


    TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE
    Deluxe Ironhide (turns into a red SUV) looks so much better than Botcon version) has a license plate that says Oregon on it)
    Deluxe Sideswipe (had wrong head in photo which was a black Sunstreaker head) - August 2008
    Ultra Class Silverbolt - everyone laughed that they had his name wrong as "Sliverbolt", 1/2 was through transformation has transformation sound, other sound effects in robot mode such as gun firing
    Ultra Storm Cloud - repaint of Powerglide (Numbers on jet say "MM-88" ... guess what that stands for? Basically an updated color scheme for Micromaster Storm Cloud)
    Deluxe Hound with Ravage (new mold ... Hound transforms into a green jeep like vehicle, Ravage transforms into a cassette who will fit in Soundwave and also attaches to Hound, Ravage does not have weapons, hound's cannon will fit on shoulder or in hand)
    Deluxe Cyclonus w/ Nightstick Targetmaster (new mold) ... looks frikkin' badass! Attaches to vehicle mode or in his hand, also "plugs" into his hand like the Japanese Headmasters series
    Deluxe Cheetor (looks pretty cool, new mold, tail is his weapon, no spots on tail due to the type of plastic, will have two throwing star weapons like animated Prowl, little switch on back of cheetah mode that opens jaw and switches eyes from blue to green)


    TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE LEGENDS (NEW MOLDS!!!)
    Tank Megatron (looks similar to G2 version, realistic dark green)
    Jazz
    Brawn (looks awesome!)
    Beachcomber (looks awesome!)


    ROBOT HEROES
    Kickback vs. Ironhide
    BW Megatron vs BW Silverbolt
    Thrust vs Blaster
    BM Cheetor vs BM Tankor
    RID Optimus Prime vs RID Megatron


    2008 EXCLUSIVES
    Nemesis Prime (Japanese version will have red windows) (Comic-Con / HTS exclusive)
    6" War Within Skywarp (Comic-Con / HTS exclusive)
    Breakaway (Cybertron Hot Shot repaint) - Walmart
    Fracture (Classics Mirage repaint) - Walmart
    Crankcase (Cybertron Red Alert repaint) - Walmart
    Mini-Con 12 pack (Kmart)
    WW Prowl and WW Grimlock as TRU exclusives (Sept 2008) - have no plans to release Cosmos, Arcee, WW Bumblebee/Cliffjumper or Shockwave. Too expensive to tool up for these molds and they're not profitable enough.


    UNIVERSE COMIC 2 PACKS
    Target exclusives - include a Voyager and a Deluxe
    Deluxe Roadbuster versus Voyager Dirge (Cybertron Hot Shot II repaint / Cybertron Starscream repaint)
    Deluxe Ratbat versus Voyager Springer (Cybertron Evac repaint vs Cybertron Sideways repaint)


    25 YEARS (1984 - 2009) SNEAK PEEK
    Continue with Animated (might show some more stuff tomorrow)
    Reissue of Optimus Prime with silver roller (launch November 2008) with reprint of Comic and digitally remastered DVD of More Than Meets The Eye), autobot logo sound box (like GiJoe sound boxes) with some of Peter Cullen's quotes
    Flip open packaging looks awesome for 25th Anniversary Optimus Prime
    25th Anniversary line will be celebrating all years of Transformers (showed logos for all series from Beast Machines to G2)


    (Gearing up for 25th anniversary)

    Put out an official G1 Counterfeit toys statement

    So UNIVERSE WILL BE AWESOME!!!!

    They're releasing Titanium Skywarp? Sweet!!!

    And that 25th Anniversary Prime is something I may have to get too. I'm not crazy about the Animated line, but Classics 2.0 is going to kill my wallet.
