ROTF toyline and Voyager Mixmaster

Regarding the ROTF toyline and one particular figure....

First, HK-TF has scans of Hyper Hobby magazine advertising several of the upcoming ROTF figures (such as Soundwave, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ironhide, and Starscream) and comparing them with their previous figures (notcie Ironhide's head has been remolded). See the scans here.

Next, TF08 has image scans of many figures, including the Bumblebee & Sam Human Alliance set, a prototype of Devastator, Barricade with new headlight claws for vehicle mode (like the ones from the first movie when he first met Sam), Jetfire (maybe his Leader toy), Power Bots Megatron, and a glimpse at Voyager Mixmaster.

TF08 also has images of of two more ROTF Fast Action Battlers: Blackout redecoed in white/cream, and Sideswipe. This FAB coupled with the Robot Heroes figure and his quick appearance in the recently revealed ROTF footage seems to confirm that Blackout (or someone that shares his body design) will be appearing in the ROTF film.

Also, TF08 has images of the ROTF Role play helmets of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. While Prime seems to be the same helmet as the the one from the first movie toyline, Bumblebee is a completely new helmet with its own phrases. No word on if the voice is the movie's, though.

Finally, after a few glimpses of the figure, we are at last given a full look at the Voyager Mixmaster toy. TF08 (who else) has several images of the figure from all different sides of its robot mode, and has scans of its instructions too. The instructions show how to chnge it from its vehicle mode, to its robot mode, and to its Battle mode. Yes, like Rampage (and maybe Demolisher), Mixmaster has a third mode too. His is a sort of blast cannon with shields in its front. Unfortunately, like the others, it can't combine wih the other transforming Constructicon toys.

Man, I really wish they would've given the transforming constructicons the ability to combine! Ah well, I won't be picking them up anyway, I'm here for the main event!

So Devastator is supposedly a 2-foot tall monster con? The photos that I've seen haven't done this theory any justice as to whether or not he actually IS 2-feet tall. I really hope that he is, because that is the version that I'll be purchasing.

Anyone else seeing a pattern forming in the faces of the Constructicons and how they all have a likeness to Bonecrusher?

Maybe it was a late family reunion?
