UK Toy Fair Revenge of the Fallen News

The UK Toy Fair 2009 started today and TFW2005 was provided some of the information that was revealed to some of the attendees there. Thanks to Gregory for the link.

- Devastator will be around about 2 feet tall and built like a gorilla.
- The Human Alliance Bumblebee that we have been seeing recently will be the first release in his range.
- No toys of the Fallen at present.
- There will be new Robot Replicas of Ironhide, Ratchet and Starscream.
- More information on the RPM - Robot Powered Machines - line. The cars are "Hot Wheels style" and are mainly Autobots, with their robot modes embossed on the bottom. The racetrack has tracks all over the place, and instead of the central "mountain" you sometimes see on these tracks, you've got Devastator!
- There will be a radio controlled Optimus Prime truck with Peter Cullen soundclips.
- The tank mode Megatron toy (which version is not specified) was on display, although nobody was available to comment on whether or not he is in the film.

Some footage, featuring animatics, was also shown. If you do not want to be spoiled, look away now!

- Devastator is... devastating! The mixing drum in his chest becomes a massive turbine grinder. It creates a turbine effect, sucking everything in Devastator's path up, and spitting it out of his back. (similar to previous rumor)
- Wheelie is effectively confirmed as a remote controlled car, in line with other rumors we have heard recently. (ditto)
- Legions of Decepticon drones, resembling Frenzy, will cause carnage in the Witwicky household.
- Sam fights for his life on top of a car against Pretender Alice.
- Captain Lennox also gets to see some serious action against the Decepticons, with full helicopter backup.

  1. Great info!

    Given some of the recent leaks, it looks like Devastator is pretty much a lock to appear in the movie. Now I guess the big questions are how many Constructicons will there be and are they going to have their own robot modes apart from the merged Devastator.

    It's also interesting to see how many Megatron-related products are coming out. I know Hasbro has and will release toys based on characters not in the actual movie. But I find it hard to believe they'd do that with Megatron. It just doesn't make sense to me to release so many Megatron products if he's not in the film. For my money, he's coming back in ROTF.

    The lack of The Fallen products can be interpreted two ways: either he's not in the movie, or Bay & co. are keeping a really tight lid on him. Time will tell.

    I think they're talking about Devastator's action figure height.

    This "2 feet" is about his toy...

  5. So, are they really going to call it Devastator? I mean are they gonna use the same name in 2 movies on 2 different bots?

  7. "- Legions of Decepticon drones, resembling Frenzy, will cause carnage in the Witwicky household."

    Sounds like Star Wars.

  8. "Captain Lennox also gets to see some serious action against the Decepticons, with full helicopter backup"

    Could this mean we do see Springer?

  9. There are going to be at least seven consturcticons the named ones are:

    Scrapper
    Mixmaster
    Long haul

    It is confirmed that in the teaser at the super bowl one unseen robot will be revealed this is likely one of the constructicon members!

    The name problem from the first film will mean he cant say the famous line "I am Devastator" he will say other G1 homages like This is Devastation and Destruction and Devastation.

    It is rumored that soundwaves other minions will be the Frenzy drones seen attacking the witwicky house.

    When it says Devastators chest mixer will suck in robots and spit them out his back i am left wondering where will they come out his back and will it just suck them up or will it slice them apart?
