Voyager Blitzwing and Springer that are actual triple changers? Yes please.

24" 'Titan Class' Metroplex - it's about damn time!

Very interesting news guys. It sounds like Beast Hunters will have some cool offerings as well.

Holy cow! This all sounds amazing! Can't wait to see pictures.

Wondering: Is this Springer the same as the Fall of Cybertron Springer we heard about recently? Or will there be two triple-changer voyager springers in the same year?

Wow.

Damn. I somehow forgot him.... I'll still pick it up though. Too bad they don't come up with a Masterpiece Ratbat, but I guess it is cost prohibitive to do a mold just for him. Unless they redecoed it into Wingthing, but that's just too farfetched...

It looks like Metroplex will be showing up close to the end of the year? For the start of the 30th Anniversary? Good idea, otherwise I'd have to get a second job just to afford my Transformers habit...Reissue Fort Max, three or four new Masterpieces...

And when they say a full Generations line for the 30th, I can't help but wonder if we'll finally get an official G1 Arcee, and/or Chromia, Firestar and Elita One (even slightly retooled from the same mold, I'd be okay with ANY G1 fembot...)

Holy freakin' cow! 24" Metroplex? I...want one, but don't know where I can fit it! :o

Generations sounds like it's going to be amazing. I thought Beast Hunters was going to be a lull but there will be plenty of 30th Anniversary stuff to keep me going.

Can't wait to see some pics!

Nothing for Beast Wars, but perhaps (hopefully) we'll get something in 2016 for the 20th anniversary. A bot can hope can he not?

if they're only going to use the Spotlight comic issues to pack in with characters, it does narrow down the list of potentials. Admittedly, they can always make more, but right now, out of the list, I'd have to think Arcee might finally get a proper figure.

Metroplex sounds a bit crazy. Glad to hear it's Blitzwing and not Astrotrain as previously rumoured. Maybe we'll get lucky and get both. Looking forward to pics of this lot.
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, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

This is pretty exciting! FOC Metroplex sounds great and I'm really surprised that this is actually going to happen. I'm also looking forward to a Beast Hunters comic line too. 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

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:

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
Prime
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) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

While I'm not positive, tfw's post said that he will be rocking his FOC model. Hopefully pictures come soon to verify this!
