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.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower & Wedge
3) Energon Sledge, Duststorm, Bonecrusher & Wideload
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

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

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.


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.

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 ****" or "Jesus H. Christ" is needed here.

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?).

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.
