Hmm, they didn't say what date the 1st Ed. would become available though. (From what was in the article, it sounds like Sept 1 is the date for Dark Energon stuff only) The suspense!

Great great news! :APPLAUSE:

Hopefully they'll be ready available and not overpriced.

Now what are we supposed to do with all these PRID Bulkheads and Optimii? :P

wouldn't mind a FE Bulkhead. Some of the Dark Energon repaints are pretty cool, but not sure I'm totally digging the translucency. Were Slicer solid colours I'd be getting him for sure. Suppose it works pretty nicely for Skywarp at least.
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.

Nice, looking forward to picking up a Vehicon. Hopefully they get released in Canada, but even if not it'll still be cheaper than the Takara one.

Im sure they'll be extremely overpriced, gonna say $25 for a deluxe & $50 for a voyager. I would like to pick up an Arcee but not paying an arm and a leg for one, my collection will be just fine with out one.

I don't understand the distribution of the Prime line at all. I've never seen any of the PRiD figures other then at some Walmarts and now the stopped putting them out because of the Cybertron line filling the racks. I already have all of these figures because hasbro led us to believe the states weren't getting them, especially a terrorcon CJ, I thought that was a Takara exclusive. I hate Hasbro, release the figures on a normal schedule.

The Dark Energon figures from BBTS will probably be that much, but I'm sure the TRU FE figs will be normal TRU prices.

I would get that DE Wheeljack in a heartbeat if someone can give me help me with covering up his 2 Autobot symbols so I can tack on some 'con symbols and make him Slicer. :grin: :grin:
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

Started collecting TF prime a little late, but I am only missing a few for my collection. I am glad I haven't opened anything yet after reading this lovely tidbit. I've got RID Optimus and Bulkhead, so I may take them back to Target in order to get the FE ones. They are really the only RID I have that I want to take back. Am desparately wanting RID Vehicon, but may settle for FE. So, November is roughly when FE will hit TRU?

I think it means the Autobots have equipped themselves to deal with Dark energon, as in "defending" against it
