We posted a brief preview for Transformers Spotlight Hoist
not too long ago and now we have the normal preview with more pages!Transformers Spotlight Hoist
FACE OFF! HOIST has always managed to fade into the background: until now. Trapped on an alien planet with a narcissist, half a scientist and a creature that may or may not turn into a catapult, the Lost Light's mild-mannered maintenance engineer must confront the five most dangerous DECEPTICONS ever.

A second scan from a Takara-Tomy retailer catalog, this time by way of Robot Kingdom
, shows us a look at the Transformers Go! Ninja team. They are a trio of animal themed robots who can combine into three different giant robot combinations like the vehicle transformation Samurai team. They are Gekisomaru the lion, Hishomaru the phoenix and Sensuimaru the shark. Yes, Transformers Go! will give you a ninja star wielding shark for your collection!
The scans also show (in small callouts on the larger scan with the artwork) the three different combinations of both teams. One of the scans also shows what Takara-Tomy's Hunter Smokescreen will look like - he will be a pure white version of the Beast Hunters mold, without many of the extra paint details Hasbro added - in fact the picture is unclear but it looks like there isn't any red paint on him at all.

G-21 Judora - redeco of Skystalker
, mostly black body with golden wings and legs.
G-08 Budora - black, red and yellow redeco of Grimwing
G-09 Bakudora - only shown in silhouette, but the silhouette is a match to the Cyberverse Abominus

ALLEGIANCE: Heroic Gobits
FUNCTION: Warrior / Communications
“I am not trying to prove I am better then you, I am trying to prove I am just as good!”
Profile: Originally a beautiful humanoid, when the Terrorist Gobits nearly destroyed their planet, she was forced to take on the form of a robotic space craft to aid in the war against BIKEMURDER. As the battles raged on, she became a seasoned warrior and trusted solider, so much so that in the absence of CAPTAIN-1 and TURBOLAG, she is left to command the whole Good Gobit army. In a recent mission; ROSWELL and a skeleton crew of bots, tried to find a solution to their home world and universe being wiped out by an unknown cosmic factor; it resulted in ROSWELL having to change her robotic form to match that of the local esthetic in a strange new dimension where everything was “More Than Meets the Eye”. Thanks to the Modifier, a machine from her home universe, she has finally achieved a design, color and body that she is somewhat pleased with, but even ROSWELL feels it could be better.
Abilities: Like all other Gobits, she has the standards of robot mode flight and high powered laser based pulse blasts from her fists. Unique to her design is that in UFO mode she is capable of light speed travel. Armed with her Path Cannon she can fire a short range blast that emits small sized black holes. ROSWELL is always looking to upgrade her weaponry to keep up with the ongoing conflict.
Weaknesses: She always drives to be better and thus some of her teammates feel she pushes herself to her to the point of exhaustion. She also can be a little vain sometimes, as she used to be a very curvaceous and beautiful humanoid and is not pleased with her more current blocky robot body.
TFcon 2013 registration goes online May 1st at 9am.
