Nothing for Beast Wars, but perhaps (hopefully) we'll get something in 2016 for the 20th anniversary. A bot can hope can he not?

This sounds... promising. And by promising I mean HOLY SLAG!
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

if they're only going to use the Spotlight comic issues to pack in with characters, it does narrow down the list of potentials. Admittedly, they can always make more, but right now, out of the list, I'd have to think Arcee might finally get a proper figure.

Metroplex sounds a bit crazy. Glad to hear it's Blitzwing and not Astrotrain as previously rumoured. Maybe we'll get lucky and get both. Looking forward to pics of this lot.
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.

This is going to be a good year I think.

You mean Trailbreaker, right?

This is pretty exciting! FOC Metroplex sounds great and I'm really surprised that this is actually going to happen. I'm also looking forward to a Beast Hunters comic line too. The only thing I was hoping for was an announcement about the Dinobots...maybe they're saving that for the 30th Anniversary! :PRAY: That would actually be a great way to reintroduce them into the toy line. The fact we're getting Metroplex gives me some hope! :D

Is Metroplex FoC? The article didn't mention it, but I sure hope so. I loved his design in FoC.

24" Metroplex? Ladies and gentlemen, after 26 years we have a new biggest Transformer ever. Holy cow.

Everything else sounds really exciting as well, I can't wait to see pictures.

Correct me if I'm wrong but most of these Generation figures won't be coming until late 2013 and all of 2014. This is why I have a love/hate relationship with most of these shows; it makes you want toys NOW that aren't coming for almost a year. Curse you projective business practices! CURSE YOU!!! :grin:

All I'm interested in are the Predacons, and I'm happy to see all that have been announced being turned into toys. Wish I could decide on which Predaking to get.

Generations
Blitzwing and Springer are making me really happy. Better yet, their modes can be seen as Cybertronian in G1, especially Springer's. Titan Class Metroplex just made me... :oops: Can't wait to see him.

I'll need more details on the upcoming Platinum releases and the comic sets, but color me interested.

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower and Wedge (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

While I'm not positive, tfw's post said that he will be rocking his FOC model. Hopefully pictures come soon to verify this!

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.
