nice to see that there will be a Skyquake release. Was hoping for some pink translucent plastic on it, but oh well. Maybe Reprolabels will sort something out, or he'll just look really awesome as is. Probably get him.
Magnus and Dreadwing I'm not overly concerned with. I could see me getting Magnus is there's a sale on, or I'm really itching for some TFs and he happens to be there. Don't get me wrong, the design is cool, but FOC UM will be my main one, at least until I see about getting a Classics and City Commander. This design is badass, but not really Magnus (maybe too badass?). If there's a funky Dead End of Hotshot style repaint, I might be tempted. Dreadwing...hmm...I don't want a vehicle mode Depth Charge, so passing.
Thundertron is the stand out here. Mainly because it's so good to see a big ol beast mode, and also because we're getting a 3rd faction. Really impressed by that. Despite the fiction, I'd have expected the toy release to simply be a Decepticon, or maybe even an Autobot. I'm not particularly familiar with the story about this guy, but it looks like a cool toy from what I can see, he's a sort of space pirate dude, and he's a beast. I can't see anything not to like...well, if I use my hand to cover up the stupid weapon thing. Maybe the AM version will come with something cooler?
