And it is based on the FoC model, rounded chest and all?

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Definitely looking forward to the images, there are some real gems in this listing. I'm glad Seibs and El Duque are on the scene for us.

I'm guessing some of these new Generations figures are going to have the aesthetics of the IDW-verse. Some follow-up questions for now are:

[*]Who is this "Blazemaster" packed in with Bumblebee?
[*]Is the two pack Grimlock vs Bruticus a bunch of reissues or new molds?
[*]If Optimus Prime is coming with a roller, do we know what the class size is for each?
[*]What is the "Platinum Edition" (re: Ultra Magnus)? Is this a limited release or exclusive, what class size will it be? Is this geared towards an adult collector's market, having better paint apps and accessories?
[*]Can we not have distribution issues this year, Hasbro?
[*]Metroplex, NOW! (sorry, not a question but what a great bit of news to wake up to)

So yeah, I'm excited :KREMZEEK:

FoC Metroplex has a more squared shest than he did in the game. Looks a lot like some classics G1 styled customs. Beautiful all the same. Images are inbound for him now.

I saw the pics...him and Springer look AWESOME!!!!

I wish there was a voyager Astrotrain to match now?

Trail breaker looks just okay...maybe it is just the pic though?

I thought there would be word on some FOC Dinobots and insecticons? hmmm??? Hasbro has no love for the other dinos it seems?

The one figure I've been looking forward to the most is Trailcutter and he looks awful! I hate that the did that terrible IDW Megatron but I do like Orion & Bumblebee.

Beast Hunters stuff looks less then impressive. Shockwave looks okay, but nothing great.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand they completely boned Blitzwing. What a waste.

Commander class Shockwave? I think I'm kind of digging this whole "small, cheap versions of large, expensive figures" thing they're doing nowadays. Hopefully it turns out alright.

24'' Metroplex, full of features (and hopefully nice articulation) you say?

Obligatory "ho-lee shit" or "Jesus H. Christ" is needed here.

Image

Blitzwing and Springer? Are they based on the Fall of Cybertron aesthetic we've been seeing nowadays?

They better not screw Blitzwing up. I need my booty-full tank/jet Transformer.

I'm excited about the IDW Megatron/Optimus Prime w/Roller. I pray to the Most High God that they are Voyager-sized. :PRAY:

MP Soundwave with all five cassettes? God-diggity-dayum, I'm just elated right now. Super happy I didn't bite and waited until Toy Fair! :grin: :grin: :grin:

Okay, Blitzwing looks AWESOME and they even gave him a serrated sword. However, I don't like that they are using the Animated face for him. Will still pick this guy up!

I haven't seen it yet, but how much you wanna bet that either Takara, Hasbro or both release another version of him later with a more 'G1' head (GDO perhaps?).

I really want to see some pics of the Platinum Grimlock vs. Bruticus! I'm interested to see what size they will be...hopefully large and in charge!

Also, any word on the premier date for Beast Hunters?

Seeing the voyager and now the huge version of Predaking just makes me more disappointed that the commander version has a lumpy missile launcher instead of a tail scimitar.

I'm interested in the tiny Prime and Roller duo, though. Funny how the helicopter dude with Bumblebee has the same colours as Roller. I wonder why that is. Would be cute if they were part of a combiner, hah.

Lots of good stuff to come, but strangely it's the Kreons that have actually caught my attention the most. Long Haul bringing the Constructicons up to full strength and presumably enabling a full 6 bot combination, Seacons are a very pleasant surprise (must resist urge to troop build Masterforce style) and a second version of the Terrorcons released this year is really not something I expected to see with the CV versions already coming. What are the chances we'll see a final wave of Kreon combiners next year with Technobots, Trainbots, Monsters/Dinoking and Breastforce?

I will be buying official products rather than 3rd party. Always preferred it it, as 3rd party stuff always seemed like black market deals to me. But holy CRAP!

2 ft Metroplex? Triple changing Springer AND Blitzwing? 30th Ann. generations Line? Comics w/characters? New O.P. and Megs figures? TRIPLE CHANGING EFFING BLITZWING WITH 3 MODES THAT AREN'T BULL****?!?

Sorry for that. Just got excited. :grin: :APPLAUSE:

Don't feel bad. You should have seen what I did when I first saw Blitzwing, Springer, and Metroplex. Let's just say I had to change my undergarments... three times. :oops:
