Man, if those exclusive thirty toys aren't available in U.S retail, they're convention exclusives. :roll:

Probably a more show-accurate deco than what retail offers. Probably an extra bonus item as well.

I wouldn't get your hopes up that any of the 30 for 30 figures (or whatever they're called) will hit mass retail. The first two are SDCC exclusives, the next three (that we know of) are BBTS/online exclusives, and I'd expect that kind of trend to follow.

I certainly hope at least several of them are available for purchase in mass retail: I'd like to help celebrate thirty years of Transformers in an affordable way! :P

I gotta agree. A waste of a spot as far as I'm concerned. Although I am being told this version comes with the jet pack and not the dragon spinner.

Wont buy what I cant see. However the current Ultimate Version is a lot bigger in person then I had thought it would be. I have Ultimate Predaking already. Very nice figure.

Sorry man but this is LAZY. You don't include a brand new toy in this line. MAYBE if you were doing the new Metroplex as Metrotitan. They need to do something like color the re-issue Fort Max in Grand Max colors and just throw the Pretender shell in the box.

Platinum Ultra Magnus is a brand new toy, as it's a retool of Weaponizer Optimus Prime. ;) And he's numbered 3 of 30 for this line.

Well, what are you expecting from this line then? Aside from Platinum Ultra Magnus who actually has some major work done to him, and Shockwave's Lab, all so far are just minor shiny repaints of earlier releases. Makes it easier to fill all 30 spots in a year's time I guess.

I was hoping for something that had to do with the last 30 years. The new Double Dealer re-paint should be in this line over anything I have seen so far. Honestly for the 30th line, re-paint a Bay Movie or Prime Bumblebee as Chromedome and give it a headmaster.

Or maybe some Galvatron-love?

Still, this line isn't 'lazy. It's like a line of more elaborate versions of current toys.

You're right, calling a re-colored toy of a new Magnus a 30th year line that STILL doesn't have painted wheels for FIFTY bucks isn't lazy, it's VERY lazy.

That's not being lazy, that's being cost-efficient. Magnus is one example of a blob of paint not being where you'd like it. Considering the reworking of the figure as a whole... I'll forgive the paint there. Beyond that, Metroplex has some pretty big differences in the paint department and honestly- we've only seen the exterior of this Prime. No way of knowing how much paint is or isn't on it.

Dear god- It's Schrodinger's Optimus!

Why must these be exclusives????? If they're meant to celebrate the 30th anniversary, they should be made available for ALL collectors, not just those of us with the money to go to conventions, but also those of us without the money for conventions.

Hasbro, please, hire a marketing director with some common sense.

"The items in The Thrilling 30's line are to celebrate not just the brand, but also to show our appreciation to the fans who made it all possible. They obviously have fine taste, and the money to show it, so we've created these items just for them."

How much do you wanna bet that's the answer they'll give? :lol:

Metroplex has some pretty big differences in the paint department? You mean the chrome face and thighs? Yeah.. Those differences are HUGE.

I'm glad a lot of this crap is exclusive so far.. Because there's not much of it that I want. I do want metroplex for the extra gun and maybe G1 predaking.. But that's about it so far. And no matter what they do to "ultimate" prime, it's an easy pass for me. The thing is way too big, it doesn't fit into the collection, and the alt mode is simply unforgivable.

Given the size of Metroplex- Yes. Those are some big differences.

And why would it matter that these are exclusives anyway? If you don't want them, well... Don't buy 'em. I don't see the problem with these toy being available somewhere specific of at the supermarket on your streetcorner if you're ignoring them anyway.
