The Transformers GT line is officially driving me nuts. :BOOM: I definitely plan to preorder Star Saber, as he is currently my #1 objective when it comes to this line. But every time I try to not think of Optimus Prime and Fortress Maximus... They each have something that appeals to me. "UNFAIR!" I say. I mean, with Prime, it is his partner and the fact that they respected his "Convoy" name in his profile. And with Fortress, it is the color scheme and those partnered with the team he represents.

But to rationalize... I'll just stick with my plans and hope that the rest add some level of appeal to me. But until then, I will be doing this as I wait for TFsource to have these set up for preorder. :lol:

Lastly I don't know if this was already mentioned but based on most of the pics seen here and there will Soundwave and Soundblaster have hand weapons? We have only seen them with their with shoulder mounted cannons but that's it. I really hope they do come with them like WFC Soundwave. :VEHI:



These guys will be coming out maybe sometime December along with the jazz and Optimus repaints. There might be a change in the dates but yeah. I think the combaticons are going to be sold as individual, which means that I have some hunting to do, but that's what I hear.

Oh man, the Generations figures look so good. Especially Soundwave and Starscream. Soundwave is badass. I only wish we had a bigger Prime & Megatron.

I initially wasn't interested in the GT-R series but I do like racing paint schemes and Star Saber is a fairly substantial remold. I might be interested if the price is right.

MPs look great as usual.

The more I see of the MP cassettes, the better they get. The way Rumble and Frenzy Transform is so simple yet so brilliantly elegant.

I was gonna say the same about Ravage too. The way his head splits down the middle for transformation is really unusual. And, I think that like Laserbeak his weapons are integrated into his tape mode. Cool!

And Takara has succeeded in making me want some Fall of Cybertron figures. :BOOM: But strangely only the Decepticons. They all look badass, while the Autobots just look half-assed. Maybe it's because they're all remolds.

If I was Magnus, I'd be a little distressed to that, as an Autobot often considered second only to Optimus, my weaponary was second to everyone.

You know what is funny? The photo that shows Smokescreen is very, very little. I mean to the point we cannot be 100% sure that it is a complete redeco of Knock Out, or it has some retooling that makes him look like Smokescreen. And yet, the one thing that keeps me from being won over when it comes to this piece is his Arms Micron partner. :lol:

But seriously... I am 100% sold on GT-R Star Saber, and cannot wait to preorder him. :DANCE:

The only thing retooled on Smokescreen from Knock Out is a spoiler. His head I thought was retooled...then I took a closer look. :BANG_HEAD:

Is there really a good way to tell either way? I mean, I'm looking at his head as close as I can (without zooming in so far to blur it even further) and it does look remolded to me. Though, that could just be the image fooling me, but still.

It is possible though. Swerve had a retooled head (possibly a pretool even), I know Frenzy/Rumble uses the pretooled head, why shouldn't Smokescreen have one?

It appears that I am going to spend a lot of money on Soundwave and his minions this year. I have Mp Sounwave preordered, I want to get the MP cassettes. At first I wanted to pass on the Voyager version since I have the deluxe already. But the inclusion of the cassette gimmick is too cool to pass on. It will be nice to have a line up of the cassettes for the Classics shelf.
If anyone has a TFSS Breakdown they don't want, PM me please. I would love to take him off your hands.

He has the red "streaks" he's supposed to have on the top of his head and that's it. His forehead crest and head shape are identical to Knock Out.

I expect Hasbro to give us a new head, torso, and arms with Knock Out's legs for the Deluxe figure like they did with the Cyberverse figure.

If not, they screwed up my favorite Autobot. :roll:

Hate to break it to you, but the legs not the same mold. The only thing similar is the position of the wheels and the covers, but that's it. :-B

And they have the same articulation. They appear to transform the same way as well (although I hypothesize that the arms become the rear windshield rather than his calves).

I never specifically stated the legs were the same mold. I said they were "Knock Out's legs," as in they were strikingly similar. My expectations meet mutually if Smokescreen gets his own mold in the U.S.

Heh. Doesn't phase me, as I have a couple of reasons not to get "Arms Micron" Smokescreen. Such as the fact that while he is a great character in the series, he just does not feel like he belongs in my collection. That, and his Arms Micron partner does not appeal to me. :lol:

Besides, I think once I preorder Wildrider, I will be good for a long while when it comes to the Arms Micron line. 8)
