Transformers: United listings reveal entirely new figures!

Allspark.com member Meister79 has just posted some great news regardng the Transformers: United line, which, by extension, also regards either the Generations line and/or the Reveal the Shield line. An email received from Hasbro Malaysia has included listings for several new figures that have not yet been seen or even heard of until now! While these listings are for the United line, there is an extremely high possibility that these figure can/will be released in the either the Generations or Reveal the Shield lines. The listings (with new figures in bold) are as follows:

* UN14 TF UNITED LUGNUT
* UN12 TF UNITED TRUCKS
* UN16 TF UNITED JAZZ
* UN19 TF UNITED RAMBLE & FRENZY
* UN17 TF UNITED PERCEPTOR
* UN18 TF UNITED WHEELJACK
* UN23 TF UNITED WRECKGER
* UN26 TF UNITED G2 OPTIMUS PRIME
* UN22 TF UNITED CHAR

"Trucks", "Ramble", "Wreckger", and "Char" are obvious typos of "Tracks", "Rumble", "Wreck-Gar", and "Chear". But aside from that, we now have solidified confirmation on new toy releases for Rumble & Frenzy, Wheeljack, and Kup ("Chear" being Kup's Japanese name).

What's interesting to note is that the Rumble & Frenzy 2-pack is set at a Voyager Class price range. It is not yet known what size these two will be, but it must be a good one if it necessitates these two to be sold at the Voyager price.

Everyone else listed, aside from the Voyager Lugnut, is a Deluxe class figure.

Also, we previously got a glimpse at what Kup looks like on the cover of the comic included in the Rodimus vs. Cyclonus 2-pack seen here.

*EDIT*
Big Bad Toys Store has pre-order listings for the first 22 United figures, including two whose names are not yet known. Their names have currently been transliterated as UN-16 Autobot "Tobura" and UN-19 "Hoilgaru". Both are priced at the Deluxe Class size. Whose names these really are are anyone's guess at this point.

Further information reveals that Wheeljack will indeed be a redeco of Tracks.

Char? Isn't that a planet? Interesting to see what happens there. Wheeljack as a repaint is disappointing - I spose the car modes are similar enough but can't see it working as well in bot mode...

"Char" is a mispelling of "Chear", which is the Japanese name of Kup. The Decepticon planet is spelled "Chaar".

I'm mroe curious as to who "Tobura" and Hoilgaru" are supposed to be.
