Okay, where shall I start? New toys are out in the USA! TFW2005 member Pimpimus Prime reports having found the new toys from Cybertron Scout Class wave 9, Brakedown GTS (a repaint of the original Brakedown toy) and the yellow repaint of Scrapmetal (with the name being unchanged from the red version), at a Wal*Mart store in Madison, Wisconsin, and backs up his claims with a mobile phone camera photo of the store shelf in question in the second post in this thread. As always, remember to report your own sightings of Brakedown GTS here, and sightings of yellow Scrapmetal here!

Official Hasbro stock photos of the following upcoming toys are available now:
- Wave 2 of the 6" Titanium "Cybertron Heroes" figures, namely Jetfire and Thundercracker (in his "War Within" form)
- Wave 4 of the 3" Titanium "Robot Masters" figures, namely Grimlock, Predaking and Scorponok (the latter based on the Energon toy)
- Wave 9 of the Cybertron Deluxe Class toys (presumably the last wave from that size class), namely Smokescreen (repaint of Cybertron Crosswise in a G1 Smokescreen homage deco) and repaints of the Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Megatron and Optimus Primal molds, named "Megatron" and "Optimus Prime", oddly enough. This makes Optimus Prime the character with the largest number of different toys (not counting repackages with no color changes) in the Cybertron toyline.

Official images of the toys listed above can be seen here at TFW2005:
Titanium Thundercracker
Titanium Jetfire, Cybertron Deluxe Smokescreen and Optimus Primal... er, Prime
Cybertron Deluxe Megatron
Titanium Grimlock, Predaking and Scorponok

In other news, Big Bad Toy Store has received the first shipment of wave 3 of the 3" Titanium Robot Masters figures, namely Optimus Prime (G1 form), Bumblebee (G1) and Smokescreen (based on the Alternators toy, but lacking the rally decals), but at the point of this writing, both Optimus and Bumblebee have already sold out and only Smokescreen remains in stock. However, this means that it can be only a matter of time until they arrive at mass retailers such as Wal*Mart, Target or Toys'R'Us.

damn that titamium Thundercracker looks awesome. I just LOVE the jet mode, So also do (Cybrtron) Smokescreen and Jetfire. OP and Meg, I'd probably be more excited about if they were, I don't know, more 'recognizable'... The rest I could live without. (tho, I'm sure I'll buy'm anyway!)
