No I'm not sure about that. Swindle and Onslaught could be wave 2. I will ask about that in the showroom in an hour or so. I'll keep you guys posted.

Heading back into the auditorium now to watch the rest of the presentations. I stepped out during the start of the Star Wars presentation because I couldn't get an internet connection from my tethered phone inside of the auditorium. Next updates will be pics in about 4 hours.

Cripes. So Mirage, Que, and Soundwave definitely aren't being released in the US? Cripes, retailers must have taken a bath or something on the DOTM line. Otherwise what possible reason could there be? Not even as store exclusives? Makes no real sense.

Movie trilogy deluxes shown at SDCC will only be available in Asia.

Well, so much for Movieverse...

But hey, 40+ new Generations, can't complain about that. Curious as to who will be in, though. We know FoC, hopefully more than just strictly G1 stuff (would LOVE guys like Sky-Byte or Barricade reimagined in that style).

Sounds like they are trying to avoid distribution problems with Bruticus, but seeing how just the last few months played out I'm still pretty worried.

So....movieverse is pretty much over. No Dino/Mirage other than a repainted Cyberverse. They knew this all along. They kept us at bay so they didn't have to hear us ****.

40 Generations figures? Hah. Repaints, maybe, but new molds? Not a chance in Hell. It'll be repaints out the wazoo.

I'm highly disappointed by Hasbro this year. F.E. received the back burner treatment, may never see the light of day (I don't listen to their promises anymore) and PRID, for the most part, sucks.

Why are they running it like this, this year? Geez. Come on, Hasbro! And having to wait until 2013 for most of the stuff? Are you kidding me? REALLY? WTF?

I'm starting to think all of what's coming this year is filler stuff. I don't know what they have planned for 2014, but it better impress me. It. Better. Impress. Me.

Hasbro? My ass, you can kiss it. Well... Bandai, you just found a steady buyer of your wares.

No Movie Trilogy line in the US/Europe? Lame. Now I'm going to have to shell out way too much for a Deluxe and HA Soundwave. I could care less about Que/Wheeljack.

Cool to hear about the Prime, Generations and FOC stuff though. I am looking forward to pictures.

Judging from the e-mails sent out, First Editions could reappear in generations. Isn't that the line they were meant to be in anyway? Just saying, that would partially explain some boastful numbers, though it's hardly definite.

all sounds good. excited about the prospect of 40+ new Generations figures, but can hear my wallet crying already.

if all of bruticus is in one wave, then that's a lot more cases than normal that will be selling, i'd imagine. especially if they put it up online as a pre-order for a case of 8, with OP, Shock and Jazz. that could just be a license to print money that one.

sounds like they know there's been some...disgruntled?...customers following the whole "ooh look Transformers! NO! YOU can't have them!" debacle with FE Prime toys. I did think it a bit unlike Hasbro to not take full advantage of the interest in the molds. Hopefully we see them all back again at some point, although as I said elsewhere, the current line of "in some form" could very well result in something akin to a Universe line of ridiculously garish repaints, so I'm not holding my breath too hard.

good to know the MMO is still getting focus. would love to learn more about that. FOC isn't something I'm worried about, because I've faith that High Moon can make a good Transformers game. I just hope the online experience is a bit better (it was fun...but...more frustrating than it needed to be, IMO) and would like to see a larger range of customisation options for online, but am definitely on board for it because I have faith the single player/online co-op game will be worth the money.

GI Joe news isn't terribly exciting, but the movie designs do look a little better this time around. I may reconsider yet. I'll probably see about getting a little Rock and Bruce Willis at least.

can't wait for all the pics!

I'd agree with you that I doubt we'll see 40 entirely new molds, but even this announcement of 40 new toys is enough to get me excited. Maybe I'm the only one, but sometimes a new paintscheme or head can really sell a figure to me that I've either passed on before, or sometimes one that I already have. Still, I understand your frustration, I mean, no TF line before has ever utilised repaints effectively...coughSeekerscoughcoughProwl/Bluestreak/SmokescreencoughETCcough

40 new Generations figures?
Interesting.
But I guess it will be like 20 Classics and 20 FOC, with a couple of useless repaints, maybe even a few re-releases?

yeah I could see them re-releasing a few figures in the Gen line. Possibly WFC Prime as FOC Prime.

People asking about the movie deluxe figures that didn't come out yet...those could be in Generations as well possibly.

No doubt that the 40+ Generations figures will include a bunch of Legends and Cyberverse. :/

Are those 40 Generations toys for Spring 2013 just for that one season, or does that number also include Fall and Summer 2012.
