, we now have a confirmation of future Takara-Tomy Transformers releases for the Arms Micron, Encore, and Transformers Generations lines in Japan. These confirmations are listings only and there are no pictures at this time.
First, for the upcoming "Transformers Generations" line we have an announcement that the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons will be released in Japan seperately in game-accurate colors. Whether or not these toys will have a special metallic paint job as rumored for the Optimus Prime and Jazz releases has yet to be seen.
Second, for the Arms Micron line we have listings for both Frenzy AND Rumble, as well as a release for "Stunticon Wildrider". It is unknown at this time which mold the Wildrider release will be made from, but odds are the Frenzy and Rumble toys are two releases of the recently released Deluxe Rumble mold. Which one is red, and which one is blue? Only time will tell.
And finally, something from a bit out of left field: A new Encore release has been listed- A yellow remold of the Encore Devastator release, allegedly with a new headsculpt.Read Replies (0)

K-Mart has posted the official images of the two new additions to the Rescue Bots team. Medix the Doc-Bot
and Hoist the Tow-Bot
are seen here for the first time outside of the art on their instructions. Medix is a Ratchet themed ambulance right down to the stripe on the side of the vehicle, while Hoist is a blue tow truck, whose overall style and bearing reminds this fan of the tow truck from Robots in Disguise, Tow Line.

Next up in our series of Transformers Prime new toy gallery updates we've got the latest addition to the Prime Voyager size class - Dreadwing
! Dreadwing is the new Decepticon who joins the cast early in season 2 to avenge his brother Skyquake, and in toy form he proves to be an excellent and show-accurate representation of the character, albeit with a couple of small elements which might give some of you reservations about picking on up for your Prime Decepticon squad.
Those reservations are, mainly, that the entire head
is made of soft rubber. Not just the crests, as has been the case in the past, but the whole thing. The MechTech gun is another sore point, lacking a post long enough to be carried slung under the arm as on the show, because the hands are molded part open. It's a small point given you need a rubber band to make the gun stay unfolded, but it's still a detractor.
On to the good though, you have an excellent vehicle mode and a surprisingly in-depth transformation, providing for an accurate look in robot and jet modes. Robot mode is very sleek and free of extraneous vehicle mode parts, jet mode regrettably does have a bit of an undercarriage and the hands sticking out the back.
Overall, a toy worth picking up, even with the minor flaws he is one of the best representations of a character in the Transformers Prime line.
