Another roundup: Another batch of upcoming Cybertron entries found in Wal*Mart computers has been reported by Cosmic Rust here. Entries include Scout Class toys Lugnutz and Scrapmetal (both of which have been previewed by Hasbro before), what appears to be listings for Excellion and Override GTS (the latter of which had been temporarily referred to as "Doubleclutch", but now seems to be back to the original name as stated at BotCon), a possible entry for the Red Alert repaint that was seen on the official Transformers Collector's Club website, another "Deluxe Hot Shot" entry which is neither the original nor Excellion nor Cybertron Defense Hot Shot (maybe a repaint of the Defense toy?) and possible repaints of Crosswise and Landmine.

Also, Hasbro have provided Bill's Toys and Games with official preview images of Alternators Rollbar and Ricochet (robot and vehicle mode images have been seen before, albeit with off-color hue settings; in-packaging images are new) and wave 2 of the Star Wars Transformers toys, consisting of Boba Fett/Slave 1, Anakin Skywalker/Jedi Starfighter (remold of Obi-Wan Kenobi) and Darth Maul/Sith Infiltrator. All these images can be seen here at TFW2005.

Lastly, Allspark staff member and Target insider Mouth04 has spotted some new listings in Target's computers, which can be seen here. The listings include the Transformers Universe Ultra Assortment (which has been revealed before to consist of Bonecrusher/Scavenger, Long Haul/Hightower - repaints of the RiD Build Team in G1 Constructicon colors - and Overbite/Repugnus - repaints of Hellscream, a Japanese-only retool of Beast Wars Cybershark, and Beast Wars Buzzclaw -; originally, those were supposed to be wave 4 of the regular Universe Ultra Assortment, but when Wal*Mart decided to drop the Universe Ultras, Hasbro were looking for a new way to sell them and finally managed to offer them to Target as exclusives) and, lo and behold, "Transformers Classic Deluxe" and "Transformers Classic Voyager". The latter two are currently assumed to be for the "Neo-G1" filler line that has been previwed by Hasbro at BotCon (shown were Megatron as a gun and Starscream as a fighter jet; the images have never been posted on the internet).
