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

Now the question..Will the Dark energon figures be in traditional PRID packaging or will their cards, boxes just be re-colored Prid packaging....

Looking forward to the Dark Energon Voyagers. I think the others look very nice too. I simply don't have a reason or a place for them.

First Editions I'm good on. If I can find a Terrorcon CJ I might pick him up for shits and giggles.

I actually missed out on that Bumblebee, believe it or not. And now I'm sad they're not going to release him (at least make him short-packed :roll: )

Maybe they (Has/Tak) modified the original FE's head mold to make it 'zombified' so now the original version doesn't exist any more?

It is odd that they're releasing that one at retail though, since it was an SDCC exclusive and all. Maybe it will only have the head but not the dark energon 'damage' etc. on the body (which would be boooring in my opinion).

I want the F'ed up cliffjumper :twisted:
And it looks like the body does have the dark energon damage from what I can tell from the pic posted. Ya, definitely would be boring without the body damage. It'd be cool to add some of your own damage to the figure like melted plastic pieces here and there.

I want one just because I didn't get the SDCC version (got the Takara one though, but he stays in glorious clear purple car mode :P). I have the Takara FE version as well as the Hasbro FE version (different shades of red, who knew?), so I don't need another one of that, but I can certainly understand why those who missed the boat on the original FE run would want that instead of ZombieJumper. Still, it works out well for me if he's the same as the one that SDCC got.

FE Cliffjumper? I might take a drive to TRU and I can check if they have any. They usually have tons of Bumblebees for whoever was looking in an earlier post.

My TRU has even less than shit. :-(

I don't like my area's retail system. It really sucks.

Not even exaggerating, but my store has over 9000 Bumblebees. Perks of having the biggest TRU in Canada a 15 min drive away :D. I'll check and update you guys on what I find and maybe we can work somethin out.

Apparently they took a survey and Zombiejumper won out overwhelmingly over regular Cliffjumper and Bumblebee.

As for differences from the SDCC Terrorcon Cliffjumper, I believe the retail one doesn't have the cracked window or some of the extra paint details. And of course no Dark Energon shards.

That sucks about the differences. Glad about the cracked window though, might as well have a real crack going through rather than a fake looking painted one on, which I can figure out myself. Actually, I could probably figure out some purple paint damage on my own. Maybe I'll buy 2 to have one to see how zombie'ed I can make it.
