By way of an official Hasbro Malaysia catalog, we have got a look at some upcoming Transformers Prime Voyager Class toys. This catalog shows Voyager Waves 3 and 4 (and beyond…?)
On show here, and confirmed to be getting a release in Hasbro’s Transformers Prime line outside Japan are:
Ultra Magnus – big blue truck like the Cyberverse toy. He has a cannon emplacement on the rear of the truck near his tow hitch which is his MechTech weapon. It converts into a gigantic hammer.
Thundertron – Blue wolf / liger that transforms into a peg-legged robot mode. His MechTech is some kind of claw weapon which transforms into a sword. He is being marketed as a part of the new third faction, the Star Seekers, which he was introduced as the leader of in the Transformers Exiles novel.
And as a shock reveal, Skyquake – the Decepticon sleeper from episode 6, Masters and Students, killed in his first appearance, is getting a toy. He’s a straight-up redeco of Dreadwing but has a modified MechTech weapon to represent his show model’s different weapon.
Speaking of Dreadwing, he is also shown, and like all these others his toy bio and tech specs is revealed in these images.
Notable by his absense is Breakdown – so if you are worried this one might be passed over for a US release you might want to jump on a Japanese release of this one when it comes out later this week. I personally would not worry too much because even with a two-episode wonder like Skyquake getting the toy treatment, all odds are Breakdown is simply in a future assortment. I’d still recommend investing in the Japanese one if you “must own” a version of the character though.
What, there's a new Ultra Magnus? Next you'll tell me they're making a Voyager Skyquake and Thundertron.
Where have you been? Read the title of the thread…
This Ultra Magnus is Deluxe class or Voyager class?
He is the main focus for toys. He is Superior .
Eh why not.
Yes just yes.
Dreadwing doesn't seem to be the main focus of the thread.
They haven't even been officially announced for US retail yet. SDCC will hold the answers.
For a line I have no interest in, these do look impressive. Way to go Hasbro! When do these release?

With the way the truck cab kibble settles in robot mode, Ultra Magnus would make a dandy Clench if he was ever redeco'd.
Once I get Thundertron, I'm so gonna take pictures of Thundertron fighting Vector Prime!
Thundertron should totally fight Vector Prime..
Oh, I see. He would probably fit right in then
Nah, I just meant the toy would look cool as one of Thundertron's goons.
Unless TFP decides to add its own Star Seekers to the current members of that faction, this won't be the case
I didn't like that at first, but I am actually okay with it. It will give my credit card a bit of a breather instead of 2 or 3 new voyagers coming out at once. At least it will be someone actually in the show.
Maybe Dead End IS a part of the Star Seekers! Maybe Hasbro's trying to cover his true loyalty by making him a Decepticon when he's really a Star Seeker.
Magnus and Thundertron look to be the best Powerizers yet. Especially Magnus. I'm actually rather excited for him.
Won't Thundertron need a crew though? Dead End looks like he might fit right in.
