I thought Hasbro decided against bringing the FE figures to the states.

They announced at SDCC that Hasbro would be re-releasing First Edition at Toys"R"Us brick and mortar stores. BBTS and I believe Entertainment Earth will be carrying them online.

Ha sucks for everyone who shelled out huge amounts for them a year or so ago.

Pretty good prices on the Deluxes.
It's roughly 12.99ea.

I'll wait on the voyagers as I only want bulkhead.

Is it possible to pre order something and pay for it later, like layaway?
If not, than does anyone here want to be my middle-man? I don't want to miss out on this.

Yes, at BBTS you don't get charged until your order arrives.

Well, then that wont work at all. Factoring in everything, I wont have the cash at the estimated arrival date. Why couldn't they have done this last month? Or later this month?

So it still stands, I'm basically getting screwed again.

Only one I want is Optimus. Already have FE Arcee, Cliffy and Bulks.
I knew if I waited long enough, I could get Optimus without the stupid mechtech gimmick and without paying overinflated ebay prices. :D :D :D

On second thought, maybe I should pick up Starscream too.

Well that's not their fault. Lol. Chance are, since Hasbro is to be releasing them, they'll be around through (at least) December. Makes sense for them to release them in hopes of catching more Holiday season revenue. I wish you luck grabbing in getting them!




As fir me... I want those kids, but I already have deluxe class OP & Megs and I'm not feeling the need to pay $30 just for 3 mini-plastic children :/

used to want FE Optimus, but since I already have the deluxe and there are a few rather pricey figures I'm gunning for, I'll pass.

I am really hating Hasbro. I can't find new Prime figures anymore because of the Cybertron figures that are out. Now they are going to release figures that should have been out a year ago. Hasbros distribution has been terrible, I've about given up on this line. I doubt these figures will even be distributed heavy enough to find anyway.

I hate these mother f'ers. How many of us spent crazy $$$ getting FE, and now it's out at a decent price a year later?!

The other day FP comes out with the set off all 3 Warbots after we spent how much on the first two individually?! Then can't get the 3rd because it sold out in 3 hours??!?!?

I know it's my choice to buy these things and I don't have to, but tired of getting screwed and I'm blowing off steam. :BOOM:

spent 75 dollars on that prime. not cool. just want bulkhead. will look for him in stores

I spent $60 on Bulkhead, but I'm not blaming Hasbro for it. It's our own choice if we decide to spend too much money on these things. Now, for their crappy distribution and often-questionable choices...? Absolutely, I'll blame them for crap like that. I just found more Bumblebees in the new packaging. Why?! There are plenty of older ones that will haunt the store shelves for years to come, they really didn't need to ship even more out!

The Cybertron line ran from 2005-2006/07. You're talking about the Fall of Cybertron line, or simply Generations. ;)

Well, they're going to be exclusive to TRU I believe, just like before.

Also, the GDO figures have been distributed very well, so I suspect that the FE figures will see a good solid (if exclusive) release.

Because we haven't been talking about that for the tail-end of the 2nd page.

Yes, they're going to be TRU exclusives. Weren't they always?

I'd rather get the FE line at TRU though!! When I do get the FE Voyager Optimus Prime, I'm going to hit up Reprolabels and get some :CON: Emblems and turn my RiD Optimus Prime into a "CUSTOM" RiD Orion Pax figure and remove his weapons. Is that a good idea??

:BOT: :CON:

Sure. I like that idea. I just wonder if you'll be able to hide the Autobot symbol with clear background insignia. :-?

Great idea. Already considering my FOC OP for an Orion Pax. It's a cool figure, just too small to line up with anythign I have...so "ta-da!" Orion Pax. :BOT:

Are you referring to FE Vehicon, or PRID Vehicon? If you have no preference, I can grab PRID Vehicon for you, since he's quite common in my neck of the woods. I'm also NOT, by the way, a scalper. Let me know if you'd like...

You should also snag Dr. Wu's maskless face to make it depart more from Optimus Prime.

That only fits on the FE Prime. He wants to use PRiD Prime.

That's right; somehow I thought he was going to turn FE Prime into Orion.

Me = jealous. I have yet to see a single PRID Vehicon in any of my local Wally World, Target, or TRU stores.

Edit - REALLY trying to decide if the extra $10 is worth not having to hunt one down at TRU later.

I'll keep my eyes out for a PRID one if you'd like. I'll only ask for $15, since doing the deed to help another enthusiast supersedes the few dollars I'm losing.
