    Ok, so I'm about 6 chapters into The Veiled Threat and I've Noticed at least two (i'm sure I missed a couple more) new Bots in these begining chapters.

    In this thread I'm trying ro get a list of all the Bots that are used so we can try to figure out what new bots might be coming out down the road.

    The two that stick out in my head right now (and forgive me for forgeting their names, my copy of the book is not with me right now) are the 'Con's Heavy Duty Garbage/Shredder Truck, and the 'Bot's Navy style jetski.
    I'm Very excited about the Possiblilty of the Garbage Truck Possibly becoming a Figure, as I LOVE the TFA Wreck Gar Figure.

    Anyway, I'll re-analyze these beginning chapters and list all the bots and wether (as far as I know) they have had a toy mold before, when i get home.
    Please Feel free to add to or correct any info. I think this could be fun seeing what toys could be in our future that we havn't seen.

    This is just a Robot list, I dont intend for there to be any plot points in here!!

    Updated the list, found Payload's alt mode. He is an Anti-Aircraft Tank, obviously different from his previous movie/VG incaranation as an Armored Delivery Truck. So here's a third Possible new toy mold!

    What's the plot like so far? Can you give us a little mini-review?

    I'm really curious what Knock Out is like now.

    there has already been a full plot summary posted, i don't want to spoil the book for you but needless to say not every robot you listed survives to the end of the book, so obviously any that don't won't be in the movie

    This thread should be moved to the Movie subforum, I think, since this isn't news, more or a question.

    of note would be the page from the actual movei novelization, though it doesnt reveal much other than the presence of Ironhide and Ratchet together.

    Ok, so as far as I can tell, I have the complete list of Bots.

    With Two sets of Cons having the same Alt mode, and also running into 3 additional "Constructicons", this may mean that the large excavator in the Shanghai Scene in the Movie may NOT be the Same Large Excavator that forms Devastator!!!!!!

    Some stuff to think about.

    It was the preview of "Veiled Threat" that had Ironhide and Ratchet on a boat. The preview of the novelization had the icecream truck and three motorcycles in China.
