Did they ACTUALLY ANNOUNCE that the Asian Exclusive figures are coming to the US, or were they just showing them as part of the slideshow about the brand?

Oh, wait. I get it. Wreckers are in Ruination colors. DUH! Why didn't I think of that sooner.

Roadbuster = Rollbar
Whirl = Rotor
Twintwist = Armorhide
Topspin = Movor
And Impactor /= Mega-Octane?

It kinda works

About 1/2 this stuff excites me, but the rest is skip-city.

The Runiation repaint really bores me and the Blaster remold just isn't inspiring me either.

Grimlock, half the dark energon set and many of the Asia exclusives (can they still call them that? will they be through the club?) will be must-buy for me.
For Sale:
Classics Magnus/Skywarp 2 pack MIB
Classics Devastator MIP
HA Sideswipe K-Mart exclusive color Loose

Currently looking for:
ROTF Target exclusive Sideswipe from the 2-pack
TFCC Punch/Counterpunch
Alternity Primes, silver & white versions
(opened is OK, to be used for customs)

PM If interested

Am I the only one who HATES the Wreckers figures? As someone who holds Last Stand of the Wreckers as my favorite comic series, I don't feel they've been done justice at all. Although that might stem from me not liking the FoC Bruticus mold in the first place. I have just one question: What's with the orange?! No one except Roadbuster should have orange! :-x

Didn't hasbro say something at Bot-con about 40 new figures? 5 components to Bruticus x 4 known repaints/remolds= 20 figures. Is a Springer part of the Wreckers set or just the Deluxe mold?

None of the Bruticus figures are released in 2013, they're all coming in 2012. Only Ruination is coming in 2013.

And Springer is unfortunately a separate repaint, not in the combiner team.

i love the wreckers as ruination. Just one thing id like to point out to everybody crying foul about their combination or colours, theyre not the IDW/G1 characters, theyre the united continuity. so if hasbro changes things, then thats how they are in this continuity

for the record i DID want a purple impactor

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Do we know that for sure though? For all we know, only FoC molds are used for these guys, and they're not part of the aligned continuity family. We only seen pictures of them, after all. On the other hand, they were grouped with the actual FoC figures in the FoC lineup slide...

Though for the record, I love their colors. Possibly except for Topspin, just because it's too close-looking to G2 Blast-Off.

As the first post says:

Hasbro is going to re-release the Transformers Prime: First Edition toys this fall, around November. Exclusive to Toys R Us.


And as confirmed by the slides, the figures released are Voyagers Bulkhead and Optimus Prime, and Deluxes Arcee, Starscream, Vehicon and Terrorcon Cliffjumper.

The Choice, if you're referring to this slide:
Image

was possibly how they chose which of the three figures (BB, CJ and Terrorcon CJ) to actually release. Fortunately, not Bumbleblurgh.
