Canadian Toy Fair TF Info

ActionFiguresNews.ca provides a brief summary of information about the upcoming slate of Transformers 2 and other Hasbro toys. Sadly no pictures however.
Transformers:
-RPMs (Robot Powered Machines), Hot Wheel type cars with robot designs molded onto the bottom
-Soundwave and Bumblebee are confirmed for the Revenge of the Fallen preview wave
-Tons of mock up Revenge of the Fallen toys behind the scenes to show retailers including a Bumblebee Voice Changer Helmet and train set
Chances are the preview will be the Deluxe version of those two characters (pic here). As for the train set, I hope it's new Transformers, maybe something like Hearts of Steel Prime. However, considering that Hasbro has already shown it is content to dip in their well multiple times with re-releases before the new toy line's first wave is even out, I doubt it. More likely, in continuing the combiner theme, the train set a repaint of Rail Racer or JRX from the Robots in Disguise line from 2001. (source)

  1. It;s not Rail Racer. As Super Megatron reveals in the thread "Apparently a robot will be included that will interfere with the train and cause if to head back in the other direction I believe."

    That sounds like it's an actual train set.


    Besides, the Energon Superion and Bruticus combiner repaints weren't even developed for the ROTF line, they were made for the Universe line. Hasbro decided to release them in ROTF in North America because they thought it would sell better when associated with a big movie.

    As revealed in that threat

  4. I believe the train set is ment to resemble those Hot Wheel action playsets.

    Let me tell you a little something about love, anonymous. It has a voracious appetite. It eats everything. Friendship. Family. It kills me how much it eats. But I'll tell you something else. You feed it right, and it can be a beautiful thing, and that's what we have.

    You know, when someone believes in you, man, you can do anything, any f-ing thing in the entire universe. And when you believe right back in that someone, then watch out world, because nobody can stop you then, nobody! Ever!
