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.
