Alas, I can see the FE prices on eBay dropping now. At least I don't have to fold out 40-50 bucks for Bulkhead

Yeah, he's gonna be in a solo wave; Wave 3.
Looks like Thundertron & Ultra Magnus are in Wave 4 together. I wonder if Skyquake will be in his own solo wave too, or if they'll do another Voyager to accompany him.
We need a Deluxe retool of this motherplucker:
At least we know what Tailgate would look like if he was on Earth. We already knew he shared Cliff's body type.
Ultra Magnus' paint scheme seems dull, but I can't deal with that now. Ultra Magnus must sit on my shelf with his fellow Autobots.
If I don't see Dreadwing this month like they say we will, I will...uhm...keep waiting.
Fallback? Outback continues to be remembered! Thank you, RTS! Thank you!
Anyone getting an Armada Blurr vibe from DE Wheeljack?
DE Knock Out looks ugly as ass to me. I thought DE Bumblebee was gonna be swindle until I saw him closer.
Looks like Hasbro's turning things around a bit. I'll have total faith in Hasbro reclaimed when I actually see FEs on the shelves in November.

Bulkhead repaint? Pegwarmer.
Tailgate? Pegwarmer. But...I'm still gonna get him and shave/cut off those horns. The only look normal on Cliffjumper.
Skyquake? Should sell okay for a character that was in all of 1 epsiode. Plus he kind of gives me an Acid Storm vibe..
Ultra Magnus? Win. Should sell pretty well, because it's a good mold, plus it's not Prime or Megatron, who are cluttering up the shelves.
Knockout repaint? Ugly as hell.
First Edition Re-releases? Better than RID (though I do like RID Vehicon better), but I already have them all. It'll be good for those who want them.
Dark Energon redecos? Again, ugly...not even one that looks mildly okay to me.

Does this mean that FE Optimus and Bulkhead are finally getting REAL mass releases? If that's the case, November's just fine...

the FE stuff, the Dark energon stuff are cool all around
however Tailgate being included in this stuff is really great to see as a cool nod

i will be getting thundertron, magnus and dreadwing, because they're awesome
i appreciate that hasbro is re-releasing the FE versions, but couldn't they have do so a few months earlier, before i shelled out 85 euros on bulkhead?

FE news is good news. I would like to get a Vehicon. Really glad I was able to find the rest at retail though, but this is great for those who haven't bit the scalper bullet yet.
These Dark Energon guys are intriguing but I'll probably pass on them. The only one that truly catches my eye is that vaguely Skywarp-ish seeker.

I see that now. I still get an Armada Blurr vibe from him, but Slicer fits.

Man, I'm having a tough time whether to pick TTomy or Hasbro Prime Voyager UMagnus. Maybe I get both. That mold is astonishing gorgeous since Animated UMagnus. Also, the display with the missile incorrectly placed on the shoulder reminded G1 UMagnus so much.
So far got the Cyberverse already, can't wait to get my hand on the Voyager and FOC deluxe. Speaking of the FOC UM, hopefully they repaint his red eyes to blue. They did the same thing to Titanium UM during the 2006 convention.
