Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has just listed pre-orders for the previously announced Transformers Generations 2014 Deluxe Series three featuring Crosscut, Rattrap, and Tankor. These guys are scheduled to arrive April.

What's really interesting though is a listing for Transformers Generations 2014 Deluxe Series 5, which apparently includes Arcee and Chromia! No images are included on the pre-order, and they are oddly scheduled to arrive in March. Of course these arrival dates are subject to change.

No sign of series 4 at the moment.

Wonderful news! :APPLAUSE: So glad to have Arcee confirmed. Only bad news is no single Crosscut preorder. Guess I can't have it all

This is amazing. I hope NY Toy Fair will give us a look at these in a few weeks.

Interesting to say the least. If they do up a solid car mode for Arcee, I might not have to go with the 3rd party guys, and my wallet will be happier. I wonder if they would try to do a repaint for them though... Who would they repaint HMMMmmmm... Scoop?

Got my tankor and rattrap orders in. Wasn't going to get Rattrap at first, but after rewatching some beastwars, it reminds me of how awesome the show was, and how sweet it will be to have Generations figures commemorating them.

Don't get too excited folks. All we have are confirmation of names. As we have already seen they are not at all opposed to giving us repaints (which I expect both of these to be) or underwhelming molds. If you have any high hopes or expectations you might as well leave them at the door because I will bet a shiny new Titan class Metroplex that Hasbro is going to screw us over on Arcee... AGAIN! Generations started strong and has slowly gone downhill and the fact that the 30th Anniv. is here doesn't seem to matter to them one bit. >:oP

I don't know what you've been buying, but the post-FOC Generations toys have by and large been fantastic.

Agreed, and have there actually been any repaints in any of those recent releases (and I mean repaints of older Generations etc. figures, not repaints of the new molds like Hoist and Trailbreaker etc.)? I'm pretty much certain that this will be a new mold and because of what they've been doing with Generations and the IDW comics, she'll be based on whatever her appearance is currently in IDW (I don't know because I don't read them) so if she's a bike in the comics, the toy will be a bike and if she's a car, then she'll be a car.

:APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

SO glad to get almost-official confirmation of these two. I know I'm not the only one alone in saying that I've been waiting 29 years to get toys of these two (well, 29 years since Chromia showed up). I HOPE they're mostly G1 inspired, and I have high hopes for that, if [spoiler]Chromia's appearance in the most recent issue of the IDW comics[/spoiler] is any indication.

And although I don't hold out a lot of hope, I do hope anyway, that they'll be retooled into other fembots: Elita One, Moonracer, Firestar, Greenlight, Lancer, Glyph....though if that came to pass, I would think they'd be Botcon figures.

Still....

FEMBOT TOYS!!!!

I believe the 3rd party mmc arcee has her current idw car mode, so Hasbro would be going up against that.

Aha, unless the Hasbro version absolutely sucks, I foresee a LOT of MMC preorders getting cancelled soon (assuming it's up for preorder already). I know some (like myself) already complained about the head, so if Has/Tak do theirs even better then MMC may cancel their version.

Here's hoping they are two totally different molds.

Sig quoting this and holding you to it. Oh and you're paying the freight to Australia.

:lol: yep, and after seeing what's been going on with the Thrilling 30/Generations (Springer, Blitzwing, Rhinox, Waspinator, Skids, Scoop, Starscream, Trailbreaker/Hoist, Tankor, Rattrap etc. etc.) I'd easily take that bet as well. She's going to look like she does currently in the IDW comics. So if what I hear about IDW right now is true, then she's going to be pink and she's going to be a car and she's going to be very 'G1'.

It makes me glad I've held out so long without snagging any of the third party G1 style Arcees.

I'm intrigued as to what T-Macksimus means by "AGAIN". Anyone have an idea what he's talking about?

Damn double post. That's the 2nd page error I've gotten today.

Hopefully, no bikes this time. I'm sick to death of that.

I'd like to see Arcee resemble her G1 self. even the IDW or FOC versions wouldn't be bad. and let's make her in the right colors this time.

Fingers are crossed.

A slightly different IDW vehicle mode.

I thought I remembered seeing her looking more like the MMC version. Guess not?

Anyone else find it odd that two female figures are going to come in a case together, and multiple copies of each one? It's a very poor case assortment. Hopefully it doesn't lead to massive shelf warmers and no female Transformers for 10 years!
