Side note - someone on this thread said they're bringing back the Prime First Editions? Where did that rumor come from?


It was an answer to a question from the panel. Hasbro simply said getting them out is top priority right now, but there's nothing concrete.

This. I'm not getting my hopes up over seeing Voyager Soundwave at retail, and I'm passing on that hideous FOC Bruticus. Doesn't help that I don't play video games much anymore. I-)
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Ultra Magnus as a Optimus remold again? Can these guys make a separate Ultra Magnus instead of a another repaint/remold? :???:

Thank gawd for 3rd party companies. Very disappointing releases for the next year. At least for me it's a total wash anyways.

I'll focus on my G1 collecting and some 3rd party stuff. [-(

No, never. But somehow, last year, SDCC Blaster made it to Winners discount store in Canada. I think that's a once in a lifetime occurance though.

I just got confused at some of the hints going around that they do.

There hasn't been a TRU in my area since circa 2006. :(

SDCC exclusives have been known to pop up in Toyworld Australia stores. I got burned on Nemesis Prime, paid out the wahzoo for a SDCC "exclusive" only to find him released nationally a few months later, much cheaper than what I paid.

In Asia they do. We have gotten Nemessis, Soundwave and Blaster in the past few years.

Haven't the Transformers SDCC exclusives been offered after the show on HasbroToyShop.com consistently for the past several years? Why is everyone on pins and needles about these exclusives? If you really want them, you WILL get a fair shot at regular manufacturer's pricing. Just keep your ear to the ground. Heck, you can still order the SDCC First Edition Deluxe Optimus Prime in the special Matrix of Leadership packaging AND the NYCC Prime Bumblebee Taxi and G1 colors Arcee set.

I wouldn't compare a screen-accurate, Scramble City, 5-bot combiner to non-screen-accurate Bumblebee and Arcee and a not-in-good-scale-with-anything Optimus Prime.

I take that the Generations are all FOC? That Soundwave and minions is it G1 Classics or FOC related?
Because if it is, I'll have to get it and that MP Prime.

Generations are all FOC related. Masterpiece Optimus seems to utilize the last Generations series packaging. Perhaps as a way to tie him to Grimlock and Rodimus.

Unfortunately, no. I don't think they plan on updating G1 Soundwave. I think the closest you'll get is the old SDCC set from a few years back. =\

No g1 mold will ever be part of my Classics collection.

So this means that news wise for me Botcon was super useless, save for Optimus Prime.

I hope Perfect Effect finally brings out that Soundwave they teased us with a while ago, I'm sick of waiting.

It's going to expand to become Classics/Universe 4.0 eventually, but it's launching with just FOC stuff to capitalize on the game. Voyager Soundwave is based on his WFC/FOC model.

In the concept art Bruticus looks nice, but the final product ugh, way too lanky of a figure, all the proportions are messed up.

No DOTM Deluxe Class Mirage, Soundwave, Leadfoot or the Leader Class Megatron and Shockwave they promised us.

Not like i was expecting them to keep their promises but it's still a huge diappointment.

Hasbro is getting lazy, too many retools, remolds and repaints. I like the idea of the Voyager Soundwave and Soundblaster but why they share the same mold and have the same datadisc/minion pack-in is beyond me.

Technically, deluxe DOTM Soundwave and Leadfoot molds WERE made, and the figures were sold, albeit only in Asia. The Target store exclusive version of Leadfoot (with a rumored Twin Twist figure) got as far as having a product code in Target's computers, but never got to retail for some reason.

The ONLY DOTM Mirage figure that made it to production was a non-transforming 'Speed Stars' version, something like a Matchbox/Hot Wheels sized car, and it only had his robot form sculpted on the bottom of the car. I'm not sure a deluxe version of Mirage was ever in the pipeline or even seriously considered, since another company holds the exclusive rights to do toy versions of Ferarri cars like Mirage's movie altmode. Even having said that, I wonder why they didn't do a genericised version of the Ferrari Italia, like they did with movie Sideways transforming into an Audi R8 in the movie, but the toy being a generic version of that. Mirage was kind of badass in the movie, so I DO wish they'd made a deluxe of him..

As far as the Leader class movie figures, I'm not too fussed about them. I have the premium version of the first movie Megatron, and his altmode and robot mode are the closest to his movie incarnation for my tastes. And I don't care about not having a leader class Shockwave, since he didn't do much in the movie. Leader class movie Soundwave would have been cooler. I also wish they'd done a Human Alliance Topspin, even if only to complete my HA Wrecker trio.


Now back on topic, I'm a little underwhelmed by the announcements except for a few things. I LOVE that they're repainting Arcee as Flamewar. Even though it's an existing character (albeit with a scarce toy), I don't think you can ever have enough fembots. That's also why I'm glad they're doing Airachnid in Deluxe and Cyberverse toys. I do like the Masterpiece Optimus, but doubt I'll get him unless it's convenient or not terribly expensive. I'm not a huge Optimus fan, but I do like the detail on MP versions. Not a huge Soundwave fan, but I do like me some cassette- er.... datadisc bots (especially Ratbat).

Other than that, not a lot piqued my interest, but there are a lot more Generations figures to come, so we'll see...
