I like the new pic.
He did? I remember Mirage always breaking in half. I remember Prowl, Bluestreak, & Smokescreen's roof and rear windows breaking.

Never ever had an issue with a G1 Datsun breaking. Several friends had them too, back in the day, and no problems either. Guess it's all luck!

So for those of you with HLJ preorders as well, are we expecting any day now?!

Apparently Prowl was pushed back to Sep 28, and Bluestreak to Oct 26.

I like how they positioned the shoulder cannons on each show-accurately, with Prowl being the only one with no cannons deployed. :D

The suspense is actually killing me.

I just wonder, if and when, they get to Hound if he'll be a Wrangler or a Willys. Or if they even mess with him considering the level of awesome that the Binaltech was.

Thanks! This is a great list to have.

They weren't toys released in 1984.

Ahhh - I see the confusion. When I say '84 lineup, I'm generally referring to the cartoon.

Reflector was released in the first year in Japan, 1985. The US had to wait another year :P

Well, they weren't in the '84 comics, either (which were the first TF fiction ever, coming in before, and even outliving, the cartoon).

Or at least, they weren't part of the main story in the '84 comics (any appearances by them were just nameless background filler or, in Shockwave's case, a cameo lead-in to the 1985 comics)

Mitsubishi would be most accurate. ;) G1 accuracy is the name of the game, so I'm sure he'd be even better than the Alt/BT mold.

These figures are looking so good, can't wait. Looks like the paint issue on Streak's crest has been fixed too, so that's nice.

Not a reader of the original comics. I read Autocracy and liked it, and hear MTME is amazing, so I ordered all the trade paperbacks of that series (and have the Monstrocity TP on preorder).

As seminal/pivotal as the comics are, I'm an animation guy through and through (which would make sense - I was born in '87, and watched Transformers reruns/video tapes until Beast Wars came out). Sometimes I forget people got into this hobby through other mediums. ;)

Beautiful work.

This is how a robot that transforms into a car should look like -- handsome, proportional, heroic, with distinct features.

And the fact that they are based on actual cars makes it even better.
