New Transformers Animated UPC Codes in Wal-Mart Computers = New Transformers Animated figures

Posted by:

Automaster of the TFW2005 boards has reported that new Animated UPC numbers have shown up in the Wal-Mart computers. Some of these figures were hinted at Botcon, but now there is pure evidence of these figures getting a release.

He found out from a friend who works at a Wal-Mart who called him and told him of the upcoming figures listed in the computers. Some of these may sound familiar, but the rest of these may sound suprising. According to Automaster, we will be getting at least four new Deluxes, at least three new Voyagers, and something called Electro Static S (according to his computer order stuff).

The new figures that are known are:

Deluxe Class:  
- blurr 65356934981 (Deluxe Blurr)
- swindle 65356934195 (Deluxe Swindle)
- waspinator 65356934984 (Deluxe Wasp[inator])
- arcee 65356937933 (Deluxe Arcee - described as a sleek car)

Voyager Class:
- shockwave 6535932317 (Voyager Shockwave)
- wreckg 65356934966 (Voyager Wreck-Gar)
- skywarp 65356932319 (Voyager Skywarp - might look similar to the Coward Starscream clone from ABTC)


So if Wasp is released in his Cybertron Mode body, we could get a redeco of Bumblebee in his Cybertron Mode body.

Also, with this Arcee being so close to her G1 body, we could be getting a high G1-accurate Arcee figure.

As for Shockwave, it is likely that he will turn into a tank, as was him altmode in "Autoboot Camp", but it is not known if he will be able to change his head into his Longarm (Prime) disguise.

And who knows what that "Electro Static S" thing is. Maybe the Lockdown flaming redeco with the chainsaw weapon, but that still doesn't sound right.

I cant wait for these figures!

Most likely Hasbro will be able to pull of the Longarm--> Shockwave head, maybe by having the two faces on either side of the head, having interchangable heads, or actually having the head transform?

These figures sound really promising!

I think Wasp is just going to be a blue repaint of BB with (maybe) a different head.
Tyscream said,  - 2008-07-08 13:06:53
Sounds cool. The only ones here that are needs for me are Wasp & Swindle. Very good class picks too.
Someone said,  - 2008-07-08 14:51:25
This is just wishful thinking, but I think that Wasp goes back in time to become the Predacon Waspinator. But I reeeeealy need Swindle. And Wreck-Gar.

Off-topic, I have an explanation for Bltizwing having 3 faces: he could be part-Quintesson.

Animated is a completely new series that is not connected to any other series. Wasp and BW Waspinator are not the same guy. Wasp is supposed to be a homage to BW Waspinator.
Batsy said,  - 2008-07-08 15:31:08
well i tell you shockwave is going to look awsome i hope he can transformer to longarm and i really hopw wasp is nit a repaint of bumbblebee i hope he gets a beast wars treatment
Autobutt said,  - 2008-07-08 16:03:56
Sabr try telling that to Big P!
Master Dex said,  - 2008-07-08 16:48:07
Perceptor seems determined to link every series though, I rather let them be separate because it is far too complicated otherwise and it will never add up 100%. Not that he is wrong in trying though, people are entitled to their opinions. As far as I am concerned though, G1 universe story was ended with BW (or BM, I do count it but there I times I wish it happened differently).

I will buy that arcee if it's the last thing I do. The animated version looks so close to G1 it's like a miracle. My prayers have been answered.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-08 19:22:35
I was wondering when someone would say something like that about Arcee, closet hanger.

Autobutt and Master Dex, despite what Perceptor likes to do (and it's alright that he does), the makers already said a long time ago that this series is a fresh start that has no connection to any series prior to this one. Perceptor can link this series into his own Personal Canon if he wants to. Hey, I have my own Personal Canon, and I'm sure every fan does too. We all have our own versions of Fanon, which we each tend to respect (even if we've clashed on ideas from time to time, but we know how to make peace).
Autobutt said,  - 2008-07-08 20:55:24
Has there already been an official discussion topic about our beliefs of continuities in the TF universe? I think that there has been one but that might have just been an off topic discussion...

sorry another thing off topic but definately worth the time:
Check out actionfigurecustoms.com and see Jin Saotome's next master creation, the Legendary GUILTAR!!! no not "guitar," "guilllltar." Go check it out!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-08 21:13:21
You just gave me a great idea for the next discussion topic: "What's Your Personal Canon/Fanon ideas?" or something like that. I'll put it up tomorrow so these other topics can be discussed more.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-07-08 21:56:52
That discussion topic is going to be SO confusing... That said, I don't think a lot of people really have "Fannons" so much as we might think. I mean, we know that I have my whole RiD theory, and Perceptor has... whatever it is you wanna call it that Perceptor has. I don't know, man. On the one hand it could be really interesting discussion, or it very well could lead to a lot of name calling... so with that in mind, I say: "Go for it!"
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-08 22:15:09
Well TPR, if you, me and Perceptor all get involved in this one, it should be an interesting topic.

EDIT:

I just remembered that Perceptor won't be back here until the 15th. So, I'm just gonna put this next discussion topic on hold until he gets back.

ilovetransformers said,  - 2008-07-08 23:57:59
shockwave is mine!!!!!!!!!!!
i <3 trash said,  - 2008-07-09 07:02:29
Who cares about story continuity? Star wars does it better and besides Hasbro wants us to be Transformers Evangelists and nod to whatever they throw at us. It's fiction anyway who cares it's more important to study real history.
Master Dex said,  - 2008-07-09 11:19:23
Real history is more important but often fictional stories can give insight to our own history in ways we wouldn't expect. Also it is just a hobby/interest and for some an obsession. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be able to understand how events fit into a certain universe or universes. This is especially true when you are a writer (I am not, just saying).
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-09 11:53:23
Guys, save it for the discussion topic when it comes. For now, focus on this topic: Shockwave, Arcee, Wasp(inator), Blurr, etc.
Darkton said,  - 2008-07-09 17:13:55
If Shockwave can disguise himself as Longarm, he's mine!

May also get Blurr and Wasp.
tonybsuave said,  - 2008-07-09 23:55:26
They must all be mine, so far I have everyone I could find, including both bulkheads, but as a long time weird al fan I am most excited about wreck gar, oh the fun we'll have mocking popular music. And Wasp will totally rule if he gets his own mold. The rest will also rock including the first of (hopefully) many Starscream repaints. Pretty excited about all of them, but concerned that Shockwave will not have his cannon arm, that would be a tragedy.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-10 10:15:19
Well, with him being a tank, who knows? Maybe his turret could detach and reattach to his arm to make a side-arm cannon. While that would not completely G1-accurate, it would still be better than nothing.
Kirby626 said,  - 2008-07-12 04:22:09
Maybe Electro Static S is Electro Static Stingers and maybe it will be a role playing toy about Bumblebee's stingers.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-12 11:35:32
Good idea, Kirby. That kinda makes sense.
Choujin Masterforce said,  - 2008-07-15 01:21:14
MUST... HAVE... WRECK-GAR!!!

"I am Wreck-Gar, and I must be had!"

Quiet, you.
I'm just hoping for an Omega Surpreme animated toy.
