Toyfair Australia Transformers pics

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.
Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite.

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).

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...
