Lots of news today, and there's more on the way... has reveled pictures of their figure Bugbite to be released in their 5 figure set at BotCon this June. Click here to see previously released pictures of their 3 seekers to be released in the set as well.
-Simon Furman offers to answer 20 questions selected by the mediator at over at the IDW forum, with 15 answers there and the other 5 posted in Furmon's own blog.
-A couple of days ago Hasbro totally overhauled their website, now heavily advertising for the movie and toys. Now they've added pictures of the movie's Attacktix figures with assortments featuring Megatron/Scorponok, and Optimus/Bumblebee/Megatron/Bonecrusher.

oh man that bugbite is the best repaint for botcon I have ever seen now I want to go just to get it. Too bad it will be next to impossible for me to make it. :(

Well, I guess there's something for everyone. Sorry cyberwuss, I have to completely disagree. I think he's no where near as good as BB or CJ. I do find it entertaining that the people a botcon apear to have mistransformed the jetpack.

I like this repaint of Bumblebee and Cliffjumper as a Decepticon, but I could never get used to it due to the fact that Bugbite never appeared in Generation 1. Sorry but that's my opinion. Also I'd be willing to bet that Dreadwind will be a repaint of Classics Jetfire. I can't think of any other figure they would use from the Classics line to repaint.

I don't like Bugbite that much. The least they could've done is remolded the face. That they didn't made this figure worse then the others. The best figure thus far seems to be Thrust, in my opinion.

Yes I totally agree, the least they could have done is to remold the face. It's just another repaint. Thrust for now is the best, at least they took time to create new wings.
I hope Dreadwind will be much better and not just a simple repaint.

yeah, they should have made a remolded head at least one thats similar to cliffjumper so if we wanted an official classics cliffjumper head we could slap on some paint and call him that.
