New Universe, Robot Heroes Figures Revealed!
bwbm - Wednesday, July 16, 2008


We have learned of some new upcoming Transformers Universe and Robot Heroes (now under the Universe brand) figures via listings in a Wal-Mart store computer.

"Zobovor" of the Google Transformers talk group reports that main line figures include deluxe class Cheetor, Cyclonus, Hot Shot, and Starscream. There is also an unknown figure listed just as "Autobot."

The Robot Heroes two-packs listed in the computer include the following:

  • Snarl VS Sharkticon
  • Cheetor VS Tankor
  • Perceptor VS Ha
  • Tigatron VS Inferno
  • Richochet VS Pre
  • Super Op VS RID
  • Prowl VS Laserbeak
  • Optimus VS Jetstorm
  • Victory Saber VS ??

Victory Saber is the fusion of Star Saber and Victory Leo from the Japanese Transformers series, "Victory."

The Cheetor VS Tankor was announced at this year's BotCon.

The "Super Op VS RID" set most likely is in reference to the Robots In Disguise-era Optimus Prime VS Megatron two-pack that was also announced at BotCon.

It is unknown at this time what character the latter half of the Perceptor and Ricochet two-packs will be, but "Zobovor" has speculated that Ricochet may be packaged with Predaking.

Thanks to "Hobbes-timus Prime" from the Community for the heads up!

I wouldn't feel dumb about it. Hasbro made a similar mistake, though in reverse, during Armada.

Never said you were. Just said that honestly, a post that funny is what makes my day. We all make mistakes. Laughing at them is what makes comedy fun.

I was taking out my Hot Rod toy and thought to myself, "Wait a minute, did i use Hot Shot's name as Hot Rod's?" So i come on to check & not only did i do that ON ACCIDENT, but someone has decided to make me look like some kid that doesnt know about Transformers or just insult ... read more

I hope we get more guys from other series. I love getting G1 updates, but I really want the 25th anniversary line to emcompass everything!

I don't mind it considering 1) they're part of the 25th Ann. line which aims to represent all incarnations of the TF brand and 2) the fact that the original Hot Shot and Cheetor figures really sucked.

It saddened me at first when they announced the "redo" figures of Hot Shot and Cheetor. I'll wait until I see 'em to pass any true judgement...but I'd rather see older characters redone before the likes of newer, more modern TF series charcters being done again. I assume Cycl... read more

Aren't you thinking of Hot Spot? Either way, if you do mean Hot Shot, there's a group that'd like a word with you; Not to mention the repaints, McDonalds toy, Legends of Cybertron figures, and finally the Built to Rule guy, too. Anyhow, I look forward to pics of these guys. I reall... read more

To close out Combaticon Awareness week, we look at Onslaught! While there are a couple toys we'll be discussing, the one we're mainly talking about is one that, while not a combiner, deserves not to be forgotten in the way or newer, more Bruticus-ready Onslaughts.

Joe Moscone, formerly the PR agent that handled Hasbro's entertainment brands such as Transformers, GI Joe, etc., is auctioning off his collection of figure for charity. For the benefit of Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation, Moscone is auctioning off a fairly impressive collection heavy on convention and SDCC exclusives. Most notably for Transformers fans, he's auctioning off the reasonably rare OTFCC Sentinel Maximus figure. Keep reading for more info!
During the long development cycle of Jagex's Transformers universe, a great deal of secondary media was created to support it. One company contracted to do some of that work, Mi, has come forward to reveal their hand in that process, samples of motion comic "episodes" that would have been used to advertise and promote the then-upcoming game. But as the winds shifted on the project, this facet was ultimately shelves. Click through for excerpts of the firm's recollections and a link to the article with the videos.
TFormers forum member TheTfboy wrote a special article for Radio Free Cybertron's Transformersdom blog about his first hand experiences with Jagex's long-developed, short-lived Transformers game. Presented in the format of a timeline of events, TheTfboy explains happenings players observed that may not have been apparent to the rest of us, and shows how long the writing was on the wall for the game's ultimate demise only months after it reached the open beta stage. Keep reading for an excerpt, and then check out the original article!
Jagex's Transformers Universe game has run the course of its short life, but the project had a lot of art designed for it, and the artists that contributed have been posting their work for all to see. We have a range of pieces from Oliver Miles and Sam Beattie including elements that never had a chance to be used in the game. Adam Turnbull has also posted a few video clips to his Vimeo account including function demos and cinematic elements, which we've got embedded below. Click through to check out everything!
