Toy Fair UK 2012 - Transformers News and Updates

Thanks to NinjaCyborg over at who was in attendence at this years UK Toy Fair, we have some news and updates on what Hasbro was showing. Get a look at the report that includes some details about Leader Starscream, War For Cybertron, New Universe and more.
  • Transformers selection was clearly visible through the booth window so I don't see why I shouldn't report what I could see. Not like I signed an NDA or anything.
  • A lot of the display was current releases - ROTF scouts, HA Bumblebee, Leader Prime.
  • On display, but not on general release yet, was: Leader Starscream, ROTF Bludgeon and more importantly from the new stuff was:
  • WFC Optimus - looked bigger than deluxe, more like Voyager size
  • WFC Bumblebee - awesome vehicle mode, and even more awesome, metallic gold paint/plastic
  • Universe Seaspray - ultra sized I think, since it was bigger than ROTF Bludgeon that it was next to. Looks just like a huge version of the original Same blue and white and yellow for the turbines. Very nice.
  • Some new G1 style legends - I think I saw a jeep, Outback maybe? or Swindle?, It was khaki coloured but the view from the booth window was too far to see the smaller toys Some kind of combiner - could have been power combiners, but looked to me more like it was built from Legends sized figures - and it was definitely not Devastator. One of the legs looked like a jet or shuttle of some kind. Could be a Legends Bruticus set? Was very lanky and with wiry limbs, but humanoid in shape.
  • 'Leader' ROTF Bumblebee or whatever it's going to be called
  • Also visible through the Hasbro window was some Marvel Universe stuff, but nothing new and no Iron Man 2 that I could see.
  • Also saw the A-Team figures on another booth. Not bad likenesses of the new actors. Still hate Neeson as Hannibal though.
  • Funny that Mattel or Mattel distributors are totally absent from this fair. No wonder you can't find Avatar toys anywhere.
Read the orginal report now at More details are just in from NIBMRatchet:
  • Seaspray is a boat with room for Scouts on his deck
  • Revenge of the Fallen toy line name will be dropped from packaging, the line will be re-branded just as "Transformers"
  • Power Core Combiners is a "Transformers" sub-line
  • Power Core Combiners 2-packs and 5-packs can be combined together
  • One of the Power Core 5-pack combiners is a new Bruticus!
  • New Transformers RPMs molds including Drift
  • RPM Bumblebee track set
  • RPM Stealth Force - deluxe/voyager size vehicles with fold out weaponry. Doesn't sound like they transform.
  • Transformers Animated may get 'phased' back into the UK in late 2010.

Seaspray does sound like he will be a Ultra Class figure, Still want to see what he looks like

Maybe dropping the ROTF name will allow Hasbro to continue releasing movie toys until Transformers 3 comes out.

Still want to see pics of the PCC's so I can decide to go after them like the Universe Line or avoid them like Animated and all Hot Crap Shots.

Although a new Bruticus sounds interesting still will have to see him (the sub-line sounds more like an Energon reject)

RPM line will be avoided as it is not interesting at all.

Still not going to buy any animated toys

I figured with Leader BBs box they were just going to phase from the movie right into everything else...

I won't buy them but the new RPMs sound intresting, wouldn't mind taking a look at what they can do.

Seaspray sounds like a win. It's always weird for me to think of a Minibot being upgraded (powerglide) but I love interactive figures so that just got my intrest.

Can't wait to see more on these PC Combiners. I just hope they aren't as fragile as the origional minicons when combined.

All good stuff!!!

Crap! 2 weeks to see what Seaspray looks like.................

Now this is interesting. I wonder why they would do that...

OOH SEASPRAY! i was hoping one would be made. bigger than bludgeon eh? nice. i just wish warpath and cosmos were made into ultras too.

im getting burned out on ROTF, so probably no starscream for me. PCC looks promising, but not committed yet.

the size of WfC Prime sounds promising, i was hoping it would be bigger than deluxe and it seems my prayers were answered, so basically bought on sight, same goes for bumblebee. ill have to look long and hard at megs before i decide on that one though.
