Issue #148 of Lee's Toy Review features a cover story on Cybertron and Starscream, the version with the crown that had surfaced on the net. It is a very brief article with info from TF brand marketing director Greg Lombardo. Starscream is the only Cybertron toy pictured. The highlights:

-Pics include Starscream robot, alt-mode, close-up of face, weapons, and 2 Cyber Planet Keys.
-There will be a show, but no specifics on network, date of premiere, etc.
-Toys will see a summer release
-No actual size is given for Starscream, although it is conformed that basic through supreme sizes will return.
-The force chips will be called Cyber Planet Keys.
-The plot of the series is that the Autobots and Decepticons are on a scavenger hunt to find all the Cyber Planet Keys due to a Energon crisis on Cybertron.
-Names of the first wave were given, altough there were no corresponding sizes or price points. Initial wave will feature:
--Optimus Prime
--Megatron
--Jetfire
--Scourge
--Crumplezone
--Vector Prime
--Hot Shot
--Dirt Boss
--Thundercracker
--Landmine
--Overhaul
--Ransack
--Scattorshot

Those are the highlights. I won't be scanning any interiors of the magazine since publishers frown on such things, but here's the cover so you can find it at your local newstand or collectors' shop.

That...uh...doesn't really jive with what we know of Galaxy Force, does it? I thought the whole planet was supposed to fall into a black hole. Does this mean that Cybertron will have a totally different story from GF, or is it a case of the marketing people getting their wires crossed?

I've been pondering this for a while now. If you ask me they might be seperate universes. I mean, we have an Hasbro Exclusive with King Starscream, and I think someone said that GF was not after Energon. From what we can tell, Cybertron is after Energon, so it points to seperate universe's.

"King" Starscream appears to be a Takara toy as well.
