I had thought there was a recent and fairly reliable rumor that Mini-Bot set 2 and what would seem to be Galvatron would be the next two releases in Takara Transformers Collection Reissues.

I'm all for both of them. I'm kind of curious who Mini-Bot #6 would be, since there are only five left from the original two years(Cliffjumper, Brawn, Windcharger, Beachcomber and Seaspray). Would it be the lame bit obvious choice of Wheelie or the innovative and killer choice of Bumblejumper. Takara has made an effort to do some really fun stuff with this line, so I'm kinda half-expecting Bumblejumper if there really is a Mini-Bot set 2. As for Galvatron, they could release it in the Optimus Prime sized box, and it would come with a Decepticon binder, which needs to happen. My Autobot binder is totally filled with the cards right now. I need a new one.

We're still awaiting the next official Takara retailer listing updates. Before that, I won't include any of DragonX76's listings in here, simply because I don't want to add stuff that I'll have to kick out again a month later because it ended up being "official".

The old thread is stickied, but I can't update it anymore, hence I started this new one. Hope one of the mods swaps them soon.

Nevermore, since they've updated the TFans site, the links to TFans news/rumors no longer work properly.

Whoa! Lots'a updates!

- Energon: Hasbro's official word on the fate of the Seacons added.

- Universe: With Blastcharge being officially out now for a while, the entry for him has been removed.

- Universe: Some more additions to the Overbite & Repugnus set.

- Universe: Build Team/Constructicons probably in limbo with the Seacons.

- Alternators: Hasbro Prowl prototype and confirmation for Takara Prowl added.

- Alternators: More on MINI's advertizing campaign for their MINI Cooper robot added.

- Alternators: Confirmation for Wildrider/Wildracer (Takara version of Decepticharge) added.

Did I miss anything?

Spacewarp with Comettor and Space Team (Armada Jetfire redeco in G1 Astrotrain colors with Armada Space Team Mini-Con redecos):

The first test shots surfaced last April.
http://www.411mania....enshots_id=2878

Then, in May, he was confirmed to be a G1 Astrotrain homage.
http://www.TFormers....le.php?sid=2873

The last hint was a Canadian TRU listing from last June that featured him as "Spacewarp", supposedly to be released in August 2004.
http://seibertron.co...iew.php?id=2818

Yes. Most probably cancelled.


UPDATE------CANCELED

Universe Devy.

Hightower and WEDGE? shouldn't that be Heavyload? or is this a flaw in a story (meaning it ain't true)?
