[color=teal]LOL SDCC Exclusive.

Some nice stuff, nothing too explosive, but eh, I guess I'll be repainting up FoC Starscream immediately. [/color]

At this point, I am underwhelmed...

OMG MP Prime 2.0, I am so happy! As long as they don't significantly cheapen the paint apps/chrome. Is the chrome intact in the pics shown?

Prime...no Ironhide? :(

I'm really choked about FoC Bruticus. I'll try to get it but I don't have high hopes. A 5-deluxe SDCC exclusive box set is going to be ridiculously expensive.

Voyager Soundwave sounds freaking amazing with the extra minions. What a great idea! :D

Voyager class generations, thats good i guess, but why make soundwave one? :???:

FOC Bruticus game accurate colors to be SDCC exclusive, that figures. Cant get a good painted figure at regular retail! :-x

This is underwhelming. Nothing too big here unfortunately, I feel like Hasbro is driving TF into the ground :(

Voyager Soundwave sounds seriously nice, looking forward to see how he turns out, also looking forward to MP 2.0 Prime's American price, hopefully not too much. :oops:
Never heard of this Thundetron dude, but that's one funky name, Thundertron. :P

G1 Soundwave was equivalent to a Voyager size, if we consider the Autobot cars to be deluxes. It makes sense to me because it allows them to engineer transforming minions. :)

Hear that guys? Hasbro says getting more First Edition toys out is their top priority. I hope there's some truth to that. I have the ones I wanted except for Vehicon, but it would be nice if everyone would get their chance for a reasonable price.

CRAP, did no one ask them if they know how bad Bumblebee is shelfwarming? :HEADHURTS:

I might just get that Ultra Magnus repaint if its done right.
Sideswipe, Insecticon, Starscream, all bought I'm sure.
They need to make as many insecticons moulds as possible.

As nice as this Soundwave sounds on paper, making his kids turn into any sort of "data disks" means Transformers has finally blurred into COMPUTER WARRIORS. Oh well, I'd seen it as inevitable for years, so we were lucky it was forestalled so long that it comes after a working Device-Label Ravage USB drive.

Err, does anyone here remember what I'm talking about? I'm not even 100% sure that's the right name, their franchise has been dead a good 25 years.

Not thrilled about these reveals overall, but I don't feel like Hasbro's dropped the ball either.

I'm just giddy with excitement over MP Prime 2.0. As long as they don't mess it up somehow, but I feel like Hasbro's done us right with the MP line so far. :)

True dat. I already have the FP Insecticons but I'll gladly buy a Hasbro one. The more the merrier!

Any idea how much that Bruticus set will cost? I mean at the convention, not on the secondary market.

I am actually going to SDCC for my second year in a row. Would be cool to pick that up..as long as I'd be able to get it in the plane home and everything.

When I got to the Voyager Generations, Soundwave, and MP Optimus Prime Ver. 2.... I just downright cried. No lie, that is the most beautiful thing I've ever read. Were there any images? Images would be FAN-FRIGGIN'-TASTIC! :grin: :grin: :grin:

Photos were not allowed during the panel, but Hasbro might show some of them in the display cases later. Fingers crossed for MP Prime!

I'm getting ALL the FOC and Generations stuff! YES!!!!! and what do the numbers mean after the generations ultramagnus?

Thrilled about a local release of MP-10, just saved me from picking up Takara version. Seems all the accessories will be included as well.

Why was Hasbro coy when asked about Dinobots being released to promote/expand FoC? At least with a Grimlock figure, thought that was already confirmed back in Feb? Now, the other 4 might be difficult to get the green light for... = (

Finally, that voyager Soundwave is is an upscaled WFC, but some tweaks (mainly the chest opening to fit up to 3 data discs). New Blaster, anyone?

Really not impressed with the reveals and info, here.
No mention of Breakdown, either. I hope he's not canceled.

2013? Hmm. Sounds like the line's being given some time to run, which is a good sign, at least. Doesn't mean we'll see everything we want, but could.
Just want the vehicles, really.

Trailer? YES. Goo'bye 20th. Anniversary DVD Edition Optimus. (Seriously, does anyone want mine? He's now for sale.)

Tired of Magnus...

O_o Is Hasbro going out of their way to get lynched? Exclusives on the best colors and a FE mold?! Are they insane? ...or just cruel? Now, I'm convinced, just cruel.

I believe I remember what you're talking about. Can't recall the exact name either, but the figs were about two inches tall and based on a TRON-like concept of programs fighting viruses inside computers, right? I actually bought the transforming PC/headquarters as a kid.

Sidenote: anyone want to entertain bets on how much of this stuff we'll actually see in stores before Hasbro cancels the lines?
