I'm not interested in the Autobot pack anymore. Blue Rodimus isn't one I want, I'd rather have a clean version of Kup and I can do without the Junkion warrior.

I might be tempted by the Decepticon set but these are pretty pricey! $100 including shipping and that's just for those of us who live in Japan.

Out of all of that I'm really only interested in the Junkion. Wonder if Hasbro will be releasing a Junkion remold of Wreck-gar?

Can't say I'm too thrilled with them, but I'll snatch them up anyways.

I'm far less enthusiastic about this set now. At first sight, if Rod, Kup and Junk were killer-Henkei colored, they'd be BOL (bought online), but now...? They just don't interest me any more. Can't stand "Battle Damage" toys. What are all your takes on Battle Damage?

I hate battle damage, unless it's barely noticeable like on 20th Prime.

Blech, pass on these for sure. Not only do I dislike battle damage, I'm also not a fan of clear figures. Junkion is the only one that sounds interesting, and chances are we'll get the remold down the line with Hasbro anyway.

Sounds to me like the purple clear for the Decepticon set is trying to recreate the part in the movie where Unicron reformats the Decepticons into Galvatron, Scourge, and Cyclonus. Basically, they will be clear purple with the grid lines kind of like that chase Megatron figure From that PVC set a few years ago.

I just got a new email from E-Hobby stating that there is already a delay in when the ordering period will be for these sets.

That clear purple plastic will have to look pretty darn cool for me to part with 8,000 yen.

Everyone is presuming that Kup is Battle damaged. The description only says Damaged. It might only be versions of the United figure that have been dropped on the factory floor, lol.

Double pass on these, as I share the sentiments of the majority on here. Most of the versions I get, but why clear blue Rodimus?

I'm pretty sure in one episode of the animated series that he turned blue, just for one scene or something.

A wasted opportunity. I'm sorry but he would have looked super cool in movie accurate colours (pink, orange, yellow and grey).

The Decepticon pack could be cool if it's done right but I'd have to love it for that price.

A second blue Hot Rod. Enough to warrant a blue Protector upgrade?

For sure, good call. They should totally release it at Botcon or as an exclusive at a TF event like I think they did with DIA Commande.r

the purple cons sound like they could be kinda cool. I too am expecting a Unicron-Reformatting theme there.
blue Rodimus doesn't bother me one way or the other, the Junkion will hopefully be released separately (or a 3rd party company will do a bunch of add-ons in a set, a few new heads some armour and weapons?) but Damaged Kup? could be more in line with the cartoon/movie colouring. He was always a bit dinged up on screen. That'd be nice.

I find myself interested in the Autobot pack.

I always see Kup as old and rusty, so the "battle damage" may be appropriate.

Depending on how they do it, a blue Roddy may work well in the Shadow FP armor (assuming I can get that)

And a Junkion with a remold from Wreck-Gar would be great! They can get a lot of remolding/repainting from this guy to make many variants, and I'd be on them.

Buying this will depend very much on the final products and the impending wallet pain.

Just a guess, maybe to simulate the blue light coming out of the Matrix when he opened it to destroy Unicron?

Too much Rodimus already. Really glad FansProject is releasing just two add ons for the classics mold. It's redundant to the point of lunacy, now. Is there any way we'll get a continuation of the Transformers with brand new characters, or is it gonna be Optimus Prime for another 25-30 years? www.move_the_hell_on.org

Here's an idea... how about a couple of new factions? You can come back to Autobots and Decepticons whenever you want. How about a new cyber world? In other words - tell us about the Gobots, Hasbro!

That would be kinda cool, but the legal rights to everything except the Gobots name itself, and a few of the character names, are sketchy enough that the lawyers would never allow it. They couldn't even call Armada Unicron's minicon Gobotron fer cryin' out loud. And I don't know about anyone else, but if I see figures called Autobot Scooter or Agent Turbo or Decepticon Cop-Tur on the shelves, I may just :BANG_HEAD: so much my face bleeds.

I would love a GI Joe vs Transformers line, though. Make the Joes really small like Human Alliance sized, I don't care, I just can't believe Hasbro's never done it (one prototype aside).

Unicron's moon being named Dead End has nothing to do with trademarks. The designers didn't want Unicron being overshadowed by a Gobots name homage, that's it. Hasbro has access to all Gobot charcters via Tonka, but not the molds. Crasher (as Fracture), Spoons (as Deadlift) and Night Ranger (as the cancelled Backtrack) got homages, and Bug Bite was kept intact as a character, but as a Decepticon instead of a Renegade.

Anyhow, Two factions (good and evil) per line are plenty according to Hasbro, and adding more would only cause confusion. Case in Point: Beast Machines Buzzsaw was originally a Predacon, but chucked with the Maximals instead.

there are already other factions than the Autobots and Decepticons. Maximals and Predacons of course, and arguably Junkions, Quintessons (including Sharkticons, Allicons and whatever else they want to make up), Dinobots, Vehicons and Minicons. Granted, most of these are off-shoots of the originals, or in some way affiliated with them, but they needn't be in every continuity.

I'd also be interested in more unaffiliated characters, or at least those with very loose connections to the overall military commands from them at least. Devcon, Lockdown, etc as bounty hunters, maybe a small warband of guys led by Bludgeon, that sort of thing.

I really hope scraphead is released separately. I think the idea is that these will all be unique, so I'm not holding my breath. Maybe I'll be able to grab scraphead alone some how.
