    Excellent finds!

    I like what I'm seeing. Especially Contagion's name and appearance. The others look great too.

    Wouldn't be as cool if it wasn't a VW Micro

    I think that's actually a toxic materials truck. But we'll find out when he's revealed fully. He's next in line too.

    Outsider is far out man.

    Contagion I think is easily the best named one of the bunch and one of the coolest designs JAGEX has made.

    I dunno, a lot of these are beginning to look kinda "same-y" to me. Contagion is the best of this lot; both in name and design.

    And can we please get some females that aren't just variations of the Arcee body-type? Like, it would be nice to get some that aren't motorcycles...

    Though the fact that we now have a Transformer called "Swagger" is kind of amazing.

    EDIT: Actually, Cameo's design is kind of just terrible overall. Especially the face. Yikes...

    Yeah, these designs are really bland. Contagion is the best, but even he is lacking anything really memorable. And my God the fembots are terrible. They're all just the same thing over and over. Why couldn't Outsider's vehicle mode be used for a fembot?

    Outsider and Contagion join Duststorm and Barricade on the list of Universe designs I want to see as toys.

    Contagion is awesome. What are these? Part of new fiction?

    • Outsider
    • Cameo
    • Swagger
    • Contagion
    • Firebreaker

    What the hell kinda' names are these!?! "Cameo"?, "FireBreaker"?,...:rolleyes2  These don't sound anything even close to a Transformer's name. "Contagion" is passing, however.

    Hell, they sound like names of extras or "walk-on's" on a page of a script.

    Somebody needs to give these guys a Transformers: abridged history 101 and stat.

    Contagion and Outsider are really neat. I'd love to see toys of them.

    Let me guess, the one with the claws are decepticons and the ones with regular hands are autobots.

    Well, yeah.

    The Prime aesthetic can't be unique after all.

    I'm sleeping on ALL of the bikes; they're even getting dull for 'male' bots. The fact that they're cloning them out to represent the clamored for fembots is ATROCIOUS.

    Firebreaker's pretty lame/generic looking, but the alt-mode's lowered stance, grille, snub-hood and rear fender-scoops are all inspired by the Bugatti Veyron, the W-16 cylindered, quad-turbo-engined car that gets 1,000+ horsepower... so THAT's cool.

    ( Bugatti Veyron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

    SAME REACTION the moment I saw Outsider and Contagion.

    Outsider looks generic enough, but in a good way - the solid kind of way where you wouldn't have wanted him bigger, or smaller, or duller. The solid kind of way where a really unique alt-mode could seriously put him over the top, annnnd..... VW BUS (w/surfboard!!)! YES!!!!!

    Contagion, I, uh, don't really care what he turns into. It looks cool. But that robot mode is one boss-scary monster-mutha!
