Toy Fair 2009 Transformers Event Coverage

By News Staff on Monday, February 16, 2009



As always, TFormers and ENI are reporting live from Toy Fair 2009 in New York City. Join us as we uncover all the news and details from the Hasbro press event. We'll be reporting on all the announcements as well as showing the Transformers that were on display including new product from Animated and the Revenge of the Fallen Devastator action figure combiner team and more.

"Arlin" of The Arker has posted several images of upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen key chains shown during Toy Fair 2009, and they provide what may be some interesting details. The images provide a colored view of Bumblebee and silhouette views of Optimus Prime, Starcream, and a "New Figure" (*ahem* Megatron *ahem*).


We have just received new official images from the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen toyline, which also reveals that the Audi R8 character will be named Sideways! Along with the official images of that figure, we also have images of figures we have already seen, although these seem to be the real deal, and not just Photoshopped versions of each. The pics include Deluxe Constructicon Rampage, Bumble Spud, Legends Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, Preview Wave Soundwave and Bumblebee, Fast Action Battlers Double Blade Optimus Prime, the Autobot seeker Breakaway, and the Bumblebee Voice Mixer.


We just received some official shots of the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen figures, ranging from the following sublines: Gravity Bots, Power Bots, Robot Heroes, Robot Replicas, Role Play, Ultimate Bumblebee, Voyagers and Scouts classes, Battle Chargers, RPMs, R/C cars, and vehicle playset. Mass consume...now.



We all learned that from Transformers (as well as many other film promotions) that the toys will not be the only things invading shelves when Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters this June 24, 2009, as there will be an onslaught of desirable merchandise. For those guys hunting this valuable stuff, this is the gallery for you.



Our sister-site Jedi Insider has posted official images of new Star Wars Transformers figures coming out in June and July of this year. The figures include Kit Fisto/Jedi Starfighter (available June 09), Battle Droid/ATT (June 09), Magna Guard/Fighter (July 09), and Ahsoka Tano/Jedi Star Fighter (July 09). Please note that the deco on Kit Fisto will be different than from what is shown in these mock-ups. For the images, head over to JediInsider.com.

Take a look at the vehicle-only figures of Rampage (wheel loader), Scavenger (steam shovel), Scrapper (bulldozer), Hightower (crane), Long Haul (dump truck), and Mix Master (cement mixer) that make up this two-foot monstrosity. We also have several shots of Leader class Optimus Prime, Skids (Chevrolet Beat), Mudflap (Chevrolet Trax), and many more.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, Hasbro is “rolling out” dozens of TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toys that showcase the innovation and depth that have been synonymous with the toy line since its inception. Featuring numerous styles and varying levels of complexity, Hasbro’s 2009 TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toy line will appeal to a growing fan base that – after 25 years – spans multiple generations.



Ahead of Toy Fair 2009 in New York City this weekend, Hasbro, Inc. has just put out a press release talking about what we should expect from the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen toyline, including price points, and approximate release dates.
