A mistype, I'm guessing. Ryan's doing an excellent job in transcribing everything as it goes up almost live, something's bound to slip!

Waiting for the gallery for further comments, but got me a Takara Breakdown just in case.
If something shows up on the Western market, so be it. Better be safe than sorry, and I got some money through this week.

I know it's a naive thing to do, but I'm still hoping for the rest of the FoC Dinobots and Insecticons to be revealed soon.

I want Sludge. :(

Weapon: Sniper Rifle
:roll: (Sigh) So THIS is the big roll out for Hasbro this year? We got pretty much teased at Botcon and now this. I tell you, as a G1 & G2 fan this has been a pretty crappy year for the most part (particulary the last couple of months). There just seems to be SO much potential for so many bonefied hits out there with these various lines and so this showing has ended up having a rather anticlimactic feel to me. I guess I should be thankful that my wallet is getting a break for a few months, but what happend to all of those Generations figures they've been alluding to. I thought we might get atleast a few more heavy hitter new molds than this. I mean Wheelie with a Jazz body...c'mon. Wreckers out of Combaticons and hailing it under the "Generations" banner? :SICK:
Size and scale all haywire for FOC line? :HEADHURTS:

Yep, I'm in the twilight zone here. :BANG_HEAD:

Oh and to add insult to injury they raise the costs across the board and give us less plastic to boot. I'm sorry guys, I know Seibertron has to be Pro-Hasbro in general. Just calling it like I see it.

*But seriously, thanks for your hard work covering and posting all this Ryan, even though it hasn't been good news for me, it's nice knowing we have an outlet for this sort of event. :BOWDOWN:

....how incredibly disappointing.

Generations ended up being exactly what we thought. (A few new molds strewn about in a sea of redecos and remolds.)

Prime...rather let down. No Breakdown, unless you import? Really? Hardly seems fair. BBTS is getting their own redeco line? Didn't they learn from Piranicon? Geez. Great news that First Edition WILL see the light of day.

I think this whole Bruticus fiasco is a huge mess. Just an absolute mess.
I think Soundwave/Blaster is just cheesy, though the cassettes are REALLY nice.
Linkin Park Soundwave? Blargh.

....I expected more. I really should learn to expect the worst and throw high hopes out the window, cuz...wow.

2014 better be a damn good year. A. Damn. Good. Year.

Glad to see Prime (the show) is continuing. Can't wait!
No mention of Masterpiece Optimus, or it's price. Odd...

Y'know, with all these FoC characters being revealed, I can't help but feel the gaping holes in the lineup so far. Even disregarding the rest of the Dinobots and Insectocons, where's FoC Megatron? He's the head 'con, he deserves something. No Bumblebee, Hasbro? That's not like you. And worst of all, no Skywarp and Thundercracker repaints of Starscream.

Something tells me that Hasbro hasn't revealed everything. But if they have... what the FoC, Hasbro?

On a lighter note, i'm looking forward to:
-TFP Dark Energon line. Especially that electro-Knockout and Slicer-ish Wheeljack.
-[s]Asia-exclusive[/s] Generations remolds. Particularly Swerve.
-Every single FoC Generations reveal. In particular:
-DAT WRECKERS BRUTICUS RETOOL. WHIRL. ROADBUSTER WITH A PROPER HEAD. TWINTWIST & TOPSPIN. Holy tits.
-Blaster and his deployers. Awesome remold, awesome minion 2-packs.
-Grimlock. 'Nuff said.

Well, I thought it was funny.

Anyway, really looking forward to everything. The repaints are decent, the new stuff is good. Not jazzed on the price increases, but that is something that will happen until an equally durable yet more cost-affordable substance is created.

well. Nice to see the Asian "exclusives" are coming out in the west too, means I can hold off on the buying. Probably get me all the deluxes now, if I can. (maybe not Swerve)The scouts don't look bad either.

Ruination, eh? There's something really wrong if the only colour scheme of a toy that looks right is the G2 neon version. Prior to seeing the pics I was thinking that the retools might be okay, and the characters they'd picked weren't bad choices. I have since been corrected. I do notice that Ruination has flying feet and ground vehicle arms. Wonder if Bruticus can do that or if that's one of the remolds?

FOC Blaster is really quite cool. I might even like him more than Soundwave. Dammit, I'm going to try and get all these guys now. Sort of surprised they didn't pack 1 Autobot "tape" and 1 Decepticon, in a versus pack with a "also: buy their daddies; Blaster and Soundwave!" cross-sell on the packs.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Not too happy that we're getting a Ruination made out of Wreckers, it just seems wrong. But they're still cool. As for the First Editions, I've grown content with the RID ones. Dark Energon Line, FREAKIN AMAZING. And thank the lord that GRIMLOCK is a VOYAGER! And a good looking one. These were better reveals than at Botcon! And I saw a comment that said the China exclusives were coming west. Where did it say that.

it's a shame that a lot of the generations we're getting are just repaints.

what a buzz kill.

grimlock looks fantastic.. but that's all i'm really excited for.

i was hoping we'd hear about voyager breakdown.. but no... maybe we'll get him after they fix their first edition mistake.

i was also we'd hear more about masterpiece figures coming to the US.. i'd much rather have those come over rather than the china after thought generations crap.

oh well, at least i can look forward to the takara masterpiece figures.
