There a a few new images from Transformers 2.  You can see pics of Shia in burn make up at www.Transformerslive.blogspot.com.  There are also new shots of Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Chevy Trax, and the ice cream truck at Stop Sector Seven.

Also at TFliveBlogspot, you can read Roberto Orci's comments about writing in Shia's hand injury.  As well as the breif mention of November being the month when the TF2 ad compain begins.

In still other Transformers Revenge of the Fallen news (well sort of), there appear to be more Transformers Movie repainted figures on the way.  www.tf08.net has images of Bonecrusher, Final Battle Jazz, Voyager Optimus Prime, and Voyager Megatron. 

www.Tformers.com has a gallery of the up comming TFA Voyager Skywarp figure.  We'll just have to wait and see if Hasbro releases the rest ot the Starscream clone seekers. 

     Just for fun, here a couple of funny web comics:
From Wayward's insceticons.com Ninja School 1 & 2.
And, from David Willis' Shortpacked.com Female Autobots.

Woah, those Shia pics are spoilerific.

Can't see anything new about Bonecrusher and FB Jazz, Prime looks only slightly different in robot mode, and Megs looks like he's bleeding.

Those comics are good.

Sabrblade. said,  - 2008-08-23 12:26:04
He's the same Final Battle Jazz toy as before. Did you miss out on him?

Hmmmm, we'll see.

On an entirely unrelated subject, I am a superhero fan and a couple of days ago I was watching an episode of the incredible hulk. At one point dr.banner was looking at pieces for a machine of his in a warehouse and 1 he saw (which we didn't) was a "Unicron Transformer'.

I didn't like the first voyager megatron for the fact that he wasn't very movie accurate, but now, seeing those pics have made me change my mind! Definately going to pic this one up, even if its just a repaint.

Im getting tired of all these dang repaints, releasing figures from one class into another, and characters that were never seen in the movie(in neither mode) there are still some movie characters that've never seen the light of day.

I hate feminists
KilledbyDeath said,  - 2008-08-23 19:12:06
^^^ What movie characters have they not made? On the other hand these repaints get made because they know some people will buy anything.
Sabrblade. said,  - 2008-08-23 19:18:50
Dispensor and the Nokia bot haven't been made into fully-transformable figures.

And now that we have full body images of Voyager Skywarp, all we need is his bio to confirm whether he is the Coward Starscream clone, or a whole new character.
KilledbyDeath said,  - 2008-08-23 22:20:18
Sabrblade thanks. How did I forget that little psycho Nokia bot. I would buy that and Dispensor might be cool too. As long as they were done better than the real gear bots. I only have one of those.
See Hasbro with a little creativity you wouldn't have to repaint the same figure 10x.
Knightwing said,  - 2008-08-23 23:43:56
Nobody ever said Hasbro "HAD" to repaint the same fig 10x. They just do. :) It's been said before and it will be said agian. Repaints are a very cheep way for Hasbro to get more use out of their very expensive molds. And, KbD is partly right. If people stopped buying repaints, Habro would stop making them.
veeble fetzer said,  - 2008-08-24 13:10:59
Lets see...I'd like a better Frenzy, the Mountain Dew Machine, The Cadillac steering wheel, the computer terminal (or was it an xbox?), and the Nokia Monster. Is that a tall order? I don't think so. They could be released in the "Real Gear" line, and it would make that line more interesting.

That TFA Skywarp is cool. I really can't wait to see a Sunstorm fig now. I really hope the female Starscream will be a different mold. And are those movie repaints fan customs or are they really going to be released in stores? If theres something I didn't see there with that answer I didn't feel like looking I guess. Also please see my Youtube page if you'd like to. I made it just a while ago. Just search up Cybertronnews on the Youtube channels search.
