According to the article at Seibertron, they showed up at TFW2005.

TFClub mirror of images in case the ones above go down:

I really, really want the Grimlock. I don't care what it's called, or that it's virtually the same as the 1984 design with bendier plastic. In fact, that's exactly why I want it... this is stuff which keeps me excited about TFs.

Not fussed about the comics or cartoons, but Energon rocks.

Actually the grimlock mold I think looks just okay. I like the jets and Swoop a lot better. But I still plan on getting grimlock.

Looking at them, we might see an Air Raid and Highbrow out of this batch.

Spiffy.

Something besides repaints.

Grimlock and Swoop are gonna be automatic buys. Gonna have to wait and see on some of the others.

Just when I thought we'd seen the last of the new Energon molds and were about to enter the total-repaint stage, pics of some real nice new ones come out. I like 'em.

Is there a G1 Revival in here.

Dinobots, Constructicons, Familiar looking jets?

Defo gettin the Dinobots. Cool are they.

Constructicons... I dunno... so far they look pretty weird so i'll wait till i see the final pics.

The jets aren't bad either.

I think a lot of people will get the dinos

Uh huh. Bit of a jump you're making there. There's no evidence of that tank in the one picture being the one on the Walmart list.

The 'copter and the two jets both look great. I'll reserve judgement on the Dinos until they're painted, but they seem promising.

Okay, maybe I'm alone, but but my first reaction is that Grimlock mold isn't very appealing at all. I'm hoping it's the mixture of them not TFing it all the way for the pic plus a lack of coloring. So maybe he'll turn out all right. Who knows...

The A-10 (Powerglide maybe?) really caught my attention. Loving the jets and the copter for sure.

Nope, you're not alone. That's why I'm reserving judgement. Half the time, the protos and even pics look like crap (although, the ones that look good usually turn out the best), but once I get to the store, they usually look a lot better. That's when I make my decision.

From juding the pic, the srcew are big and only the basic have the Energon
chip. So it mean there a strong support for it being a gestalt.
