Posted on 06-27-2010 at 10:46 AM by Sol Fury under Conventions
SUMMARY

(a variation of the original gun, can be held by Masterpiece Starscream)
- G1 Prowl
- All will have rub symbols

Scout Size Class
- G1 Windcharger
(will have flip-out magnet weapons, can hold Generations Darkmount and Movie Recon Ironhide weapons)

Deluxe Class
- Skullgrin (Darkmount redeco, has a new ram-style head)
- Scourge (G1, stealth jet, white in color, head elevates in vehicle mode, gun is a mixture of his G1 head-gun and his Targetmaster gun, NOT A TARGETMASTER TOY!
- WFC Cliffjumper (repaint of WFC Bumblebee, Cliffjumper will have "devil horns")
- Thunderwing (G1, has detachable drone which does not transform)
- Tracks (has a car and flying-car mode)
- Jazz (has car speakers that pop out of his vehicle mode)
- Perceptor (slightly based on Animated design, will be redeco'd in to REFLECTOR, chest opens to 'scan things')

Other size toys
- Grapple (Universe 2.0 Inferno redeco/remold, will come with crane)
- Lugnut (new mold, WWII style bomber, looks amazing, very bulky)
- The Fallen repaint (shown in previous pictures, blue in color)

Powercore Combiners
- Heavytread with Groundspike
- Skyhammer with Airlift (Skyhammer resembles Misfire/Triggerhappy)
- Five pack of Constructicons (Steamhammer is main 'bot)
- Dinobot set (Grimstone, transforms in to "THE BEAST", lolz)

Original 13 Transformers
- Alpha Trion (can see past, present, and future, has pen and a book)
- Liege Maximo (ram-styled horns)
- Vector Prime (gold armor, has swords and an hourglass, overseer of time and space)
- Prima (first prime, all white, "Warrior of Light", sword has the Matrix as the hilt)
- Megatronus (black and red, "Warrior of Darkness", fusion cannon, Megatron-esq ... duh)
- "The Fallen" (figure out which one of the previous listings lights themselves on fire and changes their name)

Other Things
- Upcoming "Kup" toy, no details
- Open to third party properties becoming toys, ie: War For Cybertron, IDW Drift, etc., but cannot disclose any information
- Designers have a desire to do more humans and cassettes in toylines
- Aaron Archer wants to revisit Beast Wars again, especially after Dinobot's induction in to the Hall of Fame
- Hasbro won't reveal identity of Movie Ferarri car
- No plans for larger Powercore Combiners yet, offhand remark about WST combiners
- Stay tuned for details on more "female Transformers toys"
- Takara-Tomy most likely not making new toys for Animated
- "Blue Classics Bumblebee" is not a Hasbro product
- No Transformers: Prime toys as of yet, only a television show
- Desire to do a Wheeljack toy
- "Airachnid" ... stay tuned
- "If War For Cybertron toys sell well, we'll do more of them, Starscream on the short list of desired WFC toys to release"
- No plans for "Last Stand of the Wreckers" toys
- "Brave" toys from Japan ... Hasbro would have to acquire a license, so very unlikely, plus toys are very dated
- Haven't forgotten Trailbreaker
- Fosterlager has an unhealthy obsession with female cosplayers
