Good new for fans of 3rd party toys and fans of the Animated portion of our beloved Robots in Disguise. Mech Ideas, makers of the awesome Demolition Crue two pack, have provided an update to their upcoming Techno Toon Titan. The group has been quite about the project for some time now, leading fans to think it had been possibly cancelled. Thankfully Cenokibble stopped by the other day to let us know that the project is still going and he provided us with a render of the two unofficial Animated Bots Bluster and Trench (aka Not-Animated Huffer
). Cenokibble states that the figures will feature:
Different torso shapes, unique for each character
Collapsible legs for alternate transformations
Shoulder joint pinned for extra strength, no maneuverability sacrificed
More pronounced angles on bodies

Happy Superbowl Sunday everyone! We have a great day ahead of us filled with movie news. And here is the one with a bit of a controversy.
Looks like our little ex-con friend survived the crash in Chicago and is hanging out with the new crew. Reno Wilson who voiced a different character in each movie (Frenzy, Mudflap and Brains)
tweeted a while ago that he's back for Age of Extinction. Apperantly that tweet is no longer there;''Just finished a v.o. session for Michael Bay, who is a genius! Each one better than the last! #Transformers4 #Brains''
Does this mean Wheelie is back too? We'll probably hear something from Tom Kenny too. And don't forget to check Superbowl at 6:30 PM ET for our first look to the movie!Read Replies (0)

Yesterday we shared with you a look at the new Generations Cosmos
toy, and today, it's the turn of his wavemate (and Lost Light barkeep) Swerve
! While we've had no shortage of different takes on Swerve over the years, this is the first one to truly update the original Generation 1 Swerve design.
As far as looks go, Hasbro completely nailed the look of Swerve - he looks just like he stepped out of the pages of More than Meets the Eye, and his robot mode is full of personality. His poseability is average, and his limitations really get shown up next to Cosmos, but that's not to say it's bad - you've got all the essential points of articulation there and a decent range on them.
Swerve comes with Flanker, an updated version of the Micromaster Sky High. The original Sky High was a concorde so Flanker got an upgrade to his alternate mode, and becomes a surveilance drone instead. His transformation is pretty simple, as is the way of the smaller figures in the Legends two packs. His gun mode is fun, and gives Swerve some firepower - presumably, Flanker handles aiming!
Overall this is a good two pack, not as great as Cosmos but still excellent. The design of Swerve makes it a must-buy for those who are fans of the More than Meets the Eye comic series, as Hasbro has really captured the personality of Swerve in this great little toy.

Griffin-of-Oz stopped by our 2005 Boards to share with us an in-hand look at the Bot Shots 2013 Wave 3 single packs, which surfaced in Australia in December last year but to the best of anyone's knowledge have never made it to US retail.
The assortment consisted of five releases - a new mold Megatron, Twinstrike, Inferno who is a redeco of Series 1 Sentinel Prime, Hound who is a redeco of Series 1 Ironhide, and a new mold Skywarp who is the chase "Super Bot" for the assortment.
Interestingly, if you go by the "collector series" numbers on the releases, it has been noticed that two numbers are missing. Decepticon Brawl in 2013 Wave 2 was B006, Megatron and Twinstrike here are B008 and B009 respectively. B010 is skipped, then Inferno and Hound are numbers B011 and B012, respectively.
What became of the other two numbers? A cross sell shows Skystalker and gives his number as B010, so it looks like he was planned for the assortment, but cancelled. That leaves B007, which based on the leaked Hasbro toy list, would have been Rom the Space Knight - it looks like he too has been cancelled.Read Replies (0)
