Wait, so they do a blue helicopter and give the Highbrow name to someone else? Wacky Hasbro.

More news: http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-...-panel-170066/

Bullet points so far:
  • Legends versions of G1 Prime, Megatron (as a gun) Prowl and Starscream
  • Scout Class Windcharger
  • Deluxe Scourge, Thunderwing, Skullgrin (Straxus remold), Tracks, WFC Cliffjumper, Jazz, Perceptor, Mindset (Hailstorm redeco), Fallback (Outback, ROTF Brawn redeco), a possible Reflector,
  • Voyager Grapple (Universe Inferno with a new head), a new Fallen and a new Lugnut (movie-style?)
  • A bunch of new Power Core Combiners
  • Some info on The 13
  • Apparently they would like to update some more of the cassettes at some point
No pics of any of this yet, but it sounds like Hasbro showed off at least some of this. Presumably they'll be posted in the usual places within a few hours.

Scourge, huzzah! Hopefully it'll be the Targetmaster version to compliment Cyclonus.

With Thunderwing and Skullgrin joining ROTF Bludgeon we're getting a nice little group of Pretender homages as well.

I think the alt mode of a jet is less in line with the nautical themed head and trident. And the name Terradive. Maybe he's like a Bizarro-bot.

Alas, it doesn't look like it (they've added more info to that link I posted).

Apparently they're also doing a Kup, although there's no details about exactly what he's going to be.

That's the strange thing...Generations is supposed to be deluxe-only from what they've said so far. That would force both Grapple (voyager) and Windcharger (scout) into the movie-style line even though they're supposed to be G1 characters.

I just ordered WFC Optimus and Bumblebee from TRU.

Really looking forward to Scourge and Windcharger. The blurr dosn't really look like Blurr to me.

Alot of the other new stuff looks great.

yes, it is really strange if they have plans to do that it have been more practical to me, to not create generations and release all of them in one line , the only things that are missing are a classics soundwave with buzaw and lazerbeak and maybe blitzwing to coplete the descepticons triple changers and finally the classics version of shockwave the third movie main villain and the impossible dream a powermaster optimus

Saw the Powercore guys today (2s and 5s). Horribly disappointing. I thought the 2s were going to be deluxe sized, but they're kind of scout sized with a minicon. The combiners are a scout sized leader with bloated mini-con minions. I also saw and was disappointed with deluxe Ironhide. He looks scrawny. I was so excited about this wave of new stuff, and only Seaspray and the WFC Prime and Bumblebee are still wants now that I've seen them in person.

I'm really liking Blurr.

It must be the head mold and the sniper rifle which I like very much

Takara's release of Elita-One is a repaint of Arcee instead of Chromia, which looks more like her character model.

I want...

Generations Blurr in-package pictures.

Generations Dirge in-package pictures.

Power Core Combiners wave three: repaints of Searchlight as Windburn (as a homage to Gobot Twin Spin), Skyburst as Darkstream and Bombshock as Steelshot with a mismatch of Minicon partners of the first three deluxes. Also, using repaints of Smolder and Huffer and a mix of the Combaticon and Aerialbot limbs, we have a Protectobot gestalt (Stakeout) and a Destron gestalt (Crankcase).

Repaints of ROTF Mindwipe and Skystalker as G2 Dreadwind.

A HFTD Mudflap/Starscream two-pack, plus Stealth Force toys (ROTF Gears, ROTF Megatron, Classics Inferno and Moie Optimus).

Still keeping my fingers crossed for a Kup

Those power core combiners are a bit lame. My boyfriend purchased two over the weekend- larger figs were kind of cool, wasn't impressed by the smaller. Backwind was especially poor, with every mode of his being crap- The gun mode was basically him twisted into some sort of weird yoga pose. Armour mode was the least crap, but it's hard to **** up a chestplate.

Probably not whole lot that can be done with figures that small, though. On the other hand, I might be picking myself up a Blurr eventually. Maybe.

I had been under the impression that the power core guys were deluxe sized, so I was pretty disappointed when I saw them in person. I'm excited about the new Generations figures, but really haven't been that thrilled about much else lately.

What worries me much are seeing more Bumblebees. What's up with that Bombing Run Battle pack that Grindor is totally out of scale. And then another pack with Rampage and Ravage. Guess Hasbro are really trying to clean those up. BTW, the desert ruins Brawl's color scheme looks terrible.
