www.TFW2005.com is reporting the new Jedi Starfighter I/Anakin Skywalker is out.  This is a yellow repaint of the Saesee Tiin mold.  They also have mirrored in box images of Shockwave and Skywarp from www.tf08.net.  The box of Shockwave clearly states he has 4 modes, so the toy will also be able to use his Longarm identity.  

www.Tformers.com has 2 galleries up from C3XHobby 2008.  The first is of the comming Transformers Alternity Nissan GT-R.  For those of you who also enjoy exotic cars, some of the pics are of an actual GT-R.  Also of note, the Alternity line will have a version of "automorph" to be called "Synchro Tech" in this line.  The other gallery (also from C3XHobby 2008) features Masterpiece Thundercracker, Henkei!, and a repaint of the Music Label Convoy.

www.Transformers.MovieChronicles.com has some new video clips up.  Be warned!  There is vulgar language from the cameraman in them.

www.BigBadToyStore.com has new pics of the Ultra Magnus City Commander trailer being made by FansProjects.

Anakin's new mech looks okay I guess. Not really into the SWTFs.

So, Shockwave will be sold as "Shockwave", huh. I guess its a good thing they have "4 Modes" written loudly on the front of the box.

Okay, so now we have a front-of-box image for Skywarp, and now we need a back-of-box image so we can read the bio and FINALLY know if he the same as the Coward clone or not.

So, we finally see the first look at Alternity Convoy's figure. But this is just the silver version, we still need to see the red version.

I don't know why, but MP Thundercracker looks mistransformed in robot mode. And his vehicle mode has too many white specks on it.

I like how they've got all the G1 versions lined up with their Henkei! versions as a comparison. They've even got G1 Jetfire to match with Skyfire (since Jetfire was never released in Japan).

Wow, that Music Label Convoy repaint sure is loud and ugly in its color choice.

Woah, that explosion was awesome. And I just wanna bleep out all those guys cussing. It really ruined the awesomeness of the scene for me.

And we finally get the see non-blurry images of Magnus' armor. That gun makes him look beast!

Why'd Skywarp have to keep that grin!?

Because it saves money to not make a new mold even if it is only for one peice. Besides, you can always display him with the other face.

Those pics of Magnus finally sold me on it, can't wait to get him, but does anyone know what kind of quality these types of sets are? I would like to play with it a little, but if all I can do is display then that's ok too.

Dude, the GT-R isn't an exotic car. An exotic car is something italian or German and expensive, like a Lamborghini or a Ferrari or a Porsche. That's just a Nissan. It's Japanese. It's affordable.

They could have at least given us a picture of the specs on Skywarp. All of transformers wikia is insulting me for saying that Skywarp is the coward clone!

Tonybsuave - I don't really care if it's Japanese. Any car costing $90,000+ that performs at the level of a Ford GT, Ferarri 360, or Porsche 911 turbo is exotic.

shockwave looks sooo different from what im use 2. he looks like that 1 megatron form i think it was armada? just not the colours. the megatron was green and purple. u guys know what im talkin about.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-08-31 21:31:42
Yes, that's what his design is based off.

I think it would have been nice if the Autobot Vehicle mode was more compacted in it's Transformation so that it did not just look so much like Shockwave's vehicle mode with a turret swap.

Oh and isn't Anakin strickly speaking a remold as he's got the artoo unit moved to the centerline and he's also got a new head mold.

I'm surprised to see him so quick that case revision including him was a surprise to me.

Sorry Tonybsuave. You're right I ment that for D.
