A few weeks ago, S250 posted a screencap of a strategic paper sheet from Takara's website about the merger, which listed Transformers as a "hot property" or something.

The no new Transformers in 06 might not be that bad. It depends, I could deal with getting the Beast Wars figures I missed namely alot of the 1st and 2nd season guys *as I got into BW and TF's again about the middle of the 2nd season *. Or I could spend my cash on the G1's I need

Deluxes:
Downshift confirmed. Slated for a February 2006 release.
Exigeyser's US name is given as Cybertron Defense Hot Shot. Slated for a February 2006 release.

Legends of Cybertron:
A third wave confirmed, consisting of Vector Prime, Red Alert (upgrade), Galvatron (Megatron repaint) and Soundwave.

Similar to the Skywarp repaint of LoC Starscream given out at San Diego Comic-Con, Hasbro were handing out a Ramjet repaint of LoC Starscream this time.

Reissues:

Commemorative Seriex IX Astrotrain is confirmed too. But will be the last Hasbro reissue for the time being, because he was already halfway done when TRU decided to abandon the reissues.
