Has a time frame yet been announced? I hope it's a good ways out as there's too much coming already in the next 6 months.

Either that or robot modes need to really suck...

Agreed, but not much of a problem for me. Both my FP Superion and my FP Bruticus are customized and use oddly colored versions of the figures that comprise them. Kind of a red and purple (and a lot of clear red and purple plastic) theme going on between them, so they are not my 'Classics' or G1 Superion and Bruticus so this definitely will be my actual 'Superion'.

I have to admit, those look nice.
I hope they scale well with Giant though, as in that they're about his size, if they are I'll replace my current one with them.
If not, I don't really have a place for them.

Wow, glad I skipped out on Hercules, I love Military air power, and these look utterly fantastic. I don't care if I have to eat Ramen noodles for 2013, I'm definitely liking what I see here.

If the rear landing gear is actual gear, and not stupid T/H flaps, then it's a done deal. Can't wait to see more.

I wonder if they're going to make all 5 roughly the same size or if Silverbolt is going to lord over them all?

Those planes look very very nice i cant wait to see more. for some reason i find this a bit more interesting than when herc was at this stage maybe because those planes look awsome or i was more interested about hercs robot modes i just hope nobody plays copy cat again :evil: so i can be fully focused on buying it .

Got to admit, those look pretty amazing. Plus, I want this bigger so it will actually scale correctly (alt mode wise) with my FP Bruticus and MT Giant. Bring it on I say!

Even cheaper if you go the RobotKingdom route. Probably around $400 from them.

I don't know, we're dealing with a scramble city style five bot combiner. Good chance Silverbolt will be considerably larger and more costly. When I talked to the guy at the Robotkingdom both at BotCon he said this thing would be the same size as Hercules combined.

Wow, if that's the case, I can only hope that with all the figures TFC has been selling that they've been able to bump their production numbers up and cut their production costs down.

Either way, I'm in. It's a lot of money, but if it's $600 then I'm in, it isn't gonna break me, nor will it stop me from picking up everything I want from Takara this year (which is a TON as well :)).

I've got my fingers crossed that Silverbolt retains his concorde appearance and will then hopefully be considerably larger. The only thing with that though is price point. $100 for the limbs each I'm cool with, but I'm betting we will be paying major $$$ for Silverbolt.

Anyways, the alt modes look fantastic. twice as much detail compared to Herc. Tomorrows reveals cant come soon enough.

Going by the reveal of Fireflight and Air Raid, It looks like they are gonna be sticking to G1 esque jets which is fine by me. The F-15 might have been replaced by the F-22 but it is still an amazing fighter jet. As for scale, I would rather this can go toe to toe with Hercules. Jets with a concorde main component shouldn't be the same size as a group of military land vehicles.

What I hope from now on with TFC is 4 deluxe sized toys and the main component voyager sized. That will work with Menasor, Defensor, Abominus and Computron. Doing a Bruticus wouldn't be a good idea because the official one with Fansproject add ons is pretty sweet.
