A pair of interesting items of news come our way from The-Arker.com, posted on ACToys.net. First and foremost, we have in package images of the Revenge of the Fallen Fast Action Battlers Cannon Blast Megatron (who we exclusively revealed was in the pipeline earlier this week), alongside Double Blade Optimus Prime and Pulse Blast Bumblebee. All three of these toys are new molds – and the packaging gives us our first look at Megatron’s all-new tank mode, as well as suggesting that in the sequel, Optimus Prime might be using double swords to slice up his foes. From the packaging, we have Megatron’s bio – check out the link above to read it.
As if that was not enough, this thread on ACtoys gives us in package images of the upcoming Transformers Universe Ultra Class Darkwind and Countdown. Both of these are going to be Toys R Us Exclusives in the US. Critics of the Universe box art may be pleased to see that Countdown’s box art features a slightly more dynamic pose than the static “standing upright” poses used on the earlier Universe toys box art. Also from the packaging we have Darkwind’s bio which has been added to our resources section, you can check it out by clicking on the link above.
