Hmm, they didn't say what date the 1st Ed. would become available though. (From what was in the article, it sounds like Sept 1 is the date for Dark Energon stuff only) The suspense!

Hopefully they'll be ready available and not overpriced.

At SDCC, it said the FEs were going to be released Nov '12.

wouldn't mind a FE Bulkhead. Some of the Dark Energon repaints are pretty cool, but not sure I'm totally digging the translucency. Were Slicer solid colours I'd be getting him for sure. Suppose it works pretty nicely for Skywarp at least.

Nice, looking forward to picking up a Vehicon. Hopefully they get released in Canada, but even if not it'll still be cheaper than the Takara one.

Im sure they'll be extremely overpriced, gonna say $25 for a deluxe & $50 for a voyager. I would like to pick up an Arcee but not paying an arm and a leg for one, my collection will be just fine with out one.

I don't understand the distribution of the Prime line at all. I've never seen any of the PRiD figures other then at some Walmarts and now the stopped putting them out because of the Cybertron line filling the racks. I already have all of these figures because hasbro led us to believe the states weren't getting them, especially a terrorcon CJ, I thought that was a Takara exclusive. I hate Hasbro, release the figures on a normal schedule.

The Dark Energon figures from BBTS will probably be that much, but I'm sure the TRU FE figs will be normal TRU prices.

Started collecting TF prime a little late, but I am only missing a few for my collection. I am glad I haven't opened anything yet after reading this lovely tidbit. I've got RID Optimus and Bulkhead, so I may take them back to Target in order to get the FE ones. They are really the only RID I have that I want to take back. Am desparately wanting RID Vehicon, but may settle for FE. So, November is roughly when FE will hit TRU?

I think it means the Autobots have equipped themselves to deal with Dark energon, as in "defending" against it

Looking forward to the Dark Energon Voyagers. I think the others look very nice too. I simply don't have a reason or a place for them.

First Editions I'm good on. If I can find a Terrorcon CJ I might pick him up for shits and giggles.

I actually missed out on that Bumblebee, believe it or not. And now I'm sad they're not going to release him (at least make him short-packed :roll: )

Maybe they (Has/Tak) modified the original FE's head mold to make it 'zombified' so now the original version doesn't exist any more?

It is odd that they're releasing that one at retail though, since it was an SDCC exclusive and all. Maybe it will only have the head but not the dark energon 'damage' etc. on the body (which would be boooring in my opinion).

I want the F'ed up cliffjumper :twisted:
And it looks like the body does have the dark energon damage from what I can tell from the pic posted. Ya, definitely would be boring without the body damage. It'd be cool to add some of your own damage to the figure like melted plastic pieces here and there.

Zombiejumper is cannon and is amazing, I fail to understand why you'd want anything else! :D

Did I mention he's a giant transforming ZOMBIE ROBOT? Seriously, I challenge you to come up with something more awesome.

I want one just because I didn't get the SDCC version (got the Takara one though, but he stays in glorious clear purple car mode :P). I have the Takara FE version as well as the Hasbro FE version (different shades of red, who knew?), so I don't need another one of that, but I can certainly understand why those who missed the boat on the original FE run would want that instead of ZombieJumper. Still, it works out well for me if he's the same as the one that SDCC got.

FE Cliffjumper? I might take a drive to TRU and I can check if they have any. They usually have tons of Bumblebees for whoever was looking in an earlier post.

I don't like my area's retail system. It really sucks.

Not even exaggerating, but my store has over 9000 Bumblebees. Perks of having the biggest TRU in Canada a 15 min drive away :D. I'll check and update you guys on what I find and maybe we can work somethin out.

Apparently they took a survey and Zombiejumper won out overwhelmingly over regular Cliffjumper and Bumblebee.

As for differences from the SDCC Terrorcon Cliffjumper, I believe the retail one doesn't have the cracked window or some of the extra paint details. And of course no Dark Energon shards.

That sucks about the differences. Glad about the cracked window though, might as well have a real crack going through rather than a fake looking painted one on, which I can figure out myself. Actually, I could probably figure out some purple paint damage on my own. Maybe I'll buy 2 to have one to see how zombie'ed I can make it.
