Default SDCC 2012 Transformers checklist

From the display exhibits and presentation panel so far, the following is just about everything Transformers related revealed this year.
Some released items on display are not included here, as they are already in our main checklist, which I'll update later with this new info.

If anything else is revealed in the last three days of SDCC, it'll be added as a reply post.

Info gained from the following sources:


Before I get onto the checklist, these are some extra bits from the Hasbro panel:
- Expect a Metroplex toy soon (no idea of which series though).
- still trying to get the last TF3 DotM toys to retailers.
- TFPrime First Edition toys may not be a store exclusive (but as noted at a recent AUS convention by a Hasbro employee, they won't be released here, because AUS retailers didn't show enough interest in them to warrant a whole shipment).
- 40 new Generations toys planned for this new series (so far).
- Still looking into Triplechangers... so none for a while I guess.
- BotShots Starscream Launcher revealed, making it the last of the 44 first series figures we were told about at Toyfair.

Linkin Park and Hasbro are collaborating on a super-limited LINKIN PARK EDITION SOUNDWAVE. Itís a new and exclusive model based on the original 1984 toy, the one I grew up playing with. It includes Lazerbeak, Buzzsaw, and Ravage. There will only be 2000 units, available at SURU and comic/hobby shops.

Hasbro is currently showing a sample of it, inside the Transformers booth at Comicon. Here are some pics from Les, the designer. Shout out to Mr. Hahn for overseeing itís golden glory on our end (no, itís not real gold).

The LINKIN PARK SOUNDWAVE will be available later this year.

The 'Wreckers/Ruination' squad sounds awesome on paper, but the execution is seriously lacking. They've gone to all the trouble of giving them new heads and even drill bits for twin twist, but then picked seemingly random colours that don't recall the characters at all.

Or are they planning on selling an exclusive G1 coloured set at some point too so that the completists out there end up buying this thing 5 times???

Not too much on the list that interests me to be honest. The promised '40 new generations toys' is probably more like 10 new molds repainted 4 times. I'm expecting Grimlock to be repainted into Snarl and Slag (kidding, but only just).

And, in the same breath as they promise a second shot at the first edition Prime toys, they cancel plans to release Breakdown and Unicron...? Time to burn down some Walmarts.
