2005 Boards member prime roller has shared with us a selection of images from a Taiwanese Transformers catalog. Among the sections in the catalog is an extensive Bot Shots section. Lots of new and upcoming releases are shown here including lots of ones we have not seen before. The scans include:
  • Single packs releases including Twinstrike (Sinnertwin), Stormrazor, Skywarp (new mold), Inferno (Sentinel Prime redeco in yellow), Hound (Ironhide redeco in green) and an all-new Megatron!
  • A clearer look at the Warpath launcher set.
  • Confirmation of a Scourge launcher set, based on Transformers Cybertron's Cryo Scourge deco.
  • New images of the Cliffjumper, Brawl & Dirt Boss (now renamed Breakdown?) and Bumblebee, Shockwave & Skyquake three packs.
  • More images of the three pack consisting of Kup (Spin shot Ironhide redeco), Scourge and Blitzwing (2012 Brawl redeco)
  • And to top it all off, a new three pack of Optimus Prime (Transformers Cybertron style), Cindersaur and a clear Super-Bot Jazz

The rest of the pics. The last one is the front and back cover.
Mewtwo
Cool.
Shatterpoint
That Inferno Botshot might be the most confusing toy in TF history.
RedAlert Rescue
What a shame they didn't call the yellow Sentinel Pyro.

Getting a good look at Skywarp and Megatron has me very curious for what a true Transformers of those would look like - in fact that's true of many of them.

Oh and it's still quite fun to note that there's a Cybertron Prime Botshot - and has me wondering if one of the Megatron's is supposed to be Cybertron Megatron (which it slightly resembles).

That Skywarp though is "sexy" flattened body with forward swept wings that would look really cool as a regular toy me thinks.

Why is Trailcutter on the same page as Starscream/Magnus/Sideswipe/etc? That's kinda weird...

RedAlert Rescue
I've said this before but I also wish the Blue Brawl Repaint had been called Tankor and now they have made a "Superbot" version it's mysteriously Blitzwing... surely Blitzwing needs to be a plane ?

I suspect that's Cybertron Scourge too. I do wish they'd had a few more new heads though as some don't really suit who they are supposed to be in my view with someone else's noggin on them.

That Superbot Cliffjumper looks a bit muddled to me too. The ironic thing is that despite them having made far to many of the Ironhide Mould they still have not made a regular Botshot Red Ironhide or Yellow Ratchet (perhaps in Becool though?)

Loving those beast mode Botshots.
gokuz23
I thought the cliffjumper 3-pack came out already?
Dolza_Khyron
the battle mask is much less a battle mask, and more of optimus prime *or bumblebee* being oozed by the ninja turtles.

is it hasbro's way, of warning us for things to come, with tmant?
raptor22
Still no Sideswipe / Red Alert / Sunstreaker Botshots
Diamondback
Warpy has the wrong symbol too... and where are his buddies? We saw Screamer on a Launcher at Toy Fair, same sculpt... of course poor Cracker WOULD be the one to get snubbed.

Thanks for sharing,prime roller! I was in Taiwan many years ago, would love to visit again someday.
Galaxy Convoy
Most interesting thing for me is the catalog still features the deluxe BH Scourge design sketch. I would think if that has been cancelled as some people say, then it would've been removed from the catalog?

EDIT: Or replaced with Vertebreak?

These catalogues often only generally group waves together. And often don't include some things that we already know for sure.

Your welcome! When visiting next contact me and we can go on the toy hunt!

Well hopefully it hasn't been cancelled, but I wouldn't go by this catalogues inclusion of his artwork as any real indication. The purpose of these things just seems to be to promote the new toy line, and usually just have a lot of cut & paste of Hasbro's official photos and some other stuff as 'cool' filler.

These little catalogues are placed in the TF section and are free for the taking. I have a whole bunch from previous lines as well, but they usually don't feature the 'artwork section' that this one has.

If anyone is interested in knowing the pronunciation of the Chinese names and/or a general idea of what the names mean, I'd be happy to do a little translating action. I would find it quite interesting if someone could share what the commonly used Chinese names are in Mainland China.
如果有人知道在中國大陸這些人物平常用的名字是什麼,可不可以幫我寫下來?我以前住過北京大概六年可是那時候還沒開始收集玩具,所以還不知道。我還在學中文而且很喜歡相比看不同地方的中文用法。謝謝各位愛好者。

They can put it on any page they want, just release it already!
BMan7705
Dang, that Chase Jazz looks really sick!
G1DEVASTATOR
Who is Stormrazor? Is he supposed to be like Flamefeather or something?
Diamondback
I was going by the name somebody else reported for the dragon-bot with the Autobot logo in the catalog. Bear in mind, a great deal of this is conjectural... we're only getting fragments as Hasbro trickles 'em out, and I haven't seen anything new on the street in months.
Optimist_Prime
I love catalogs like this. I wish I could get my hands on one.

Found another catalogue (#2).
Not sure if news worthy, but here are some things that may be of interest:
Noideaforaname
So the CG image of Ratchet gives him a black crest, while the toy has it unpainted white, yet Ratchet is supposed to have a red one... Better off getting a spare Prowl helmet, really.

Kinda amusing how the show justifies Bumblebee having a mouth, though now I'm disappointed they didn't follow thru with a reversed color scheme (which would've given more interest to that set).


I really hope they improved the Kreon quality for those custom sets. The existing Kreons don't survive a great many swaps.
GaussGunner
Transformers Ninjago :/.

Yeah, you're right about Ratchet's head-crest. Hadn't noticed that before.
Reversed colors on BB would indeed have been better.
I did some swapping around around to come up with a Microchangers combiner Landcross, and you're right, some of the paint apps got scratched off, and I broke Megs arm off.

No Bot Shots shown in this catalogue. It's a Kre-O only one, and only has some Transformers stuff (posted pics of newer stuff only), and CityVille Invasion Kre-O (if there is anyone interested in CityVille Kre-O I can post pics as well).

#3 Found a third catalog at Toyworld. They didn't have any to give out to customers, but had a laminated one hanging beside the Transformers, so I snapped some pics with my phone.

Here are some things of interest, some of which I think may be the first time seeing/hearing of.
-4 Bot Shots launchers: Starscream, Hun-Gurrr, Bluestreak, and Buzzclaw.
-Autobot Driller (does't say who it comes with).
-Construct Bots: Megatron, Smokescreen, Dragstrip, Shockwave, Thundercracker, Bumblebee, Hound, Silverbolt, Deadend, and Breakdown.
-the rolling Rescue bots & the Optimus Prime trailer/wings.

For your viewing pleasure:
Dinobot Nuva
Well that's confirmation that Buzzclaw is a launcher and not a single packer. This is also the first time we've seen Bluestreak I think.
Smokescreen
That Bot Shots launcher "Bluestreak" must be a misprint. There's no way that's not meant to be Smokescreen based on his color scheme.
Mister Gone
Am I wrong or was the Warpath launcher wave not seen in US release yet?

It was at least available online via HTS I know for sure.
