More Universe Special Editions To Come?

Weapon: Sniper Rifle
Griffin on the Australian TF boards we get a little history for the where's and why's of this line that just seemed to pop up out of the blue, and also possible information leading us to speculate that we could also be seeing a NEW 'premium'Cliffjumper, another Nemesis Prime of sorts, and a red Mirage repaint.

But this is all just rumor, until we get box art, or production pictures of toys, etc., but based on what we already have, and know, perhaps the legitimacy of the others coming to fruition at a later is true.

Check out griffin's post here to judge for yourself. You can speculate on what they might do for the 3 others mentioned, as well as, what they might do if they keep this 'Special Edition' line going.

Red Mirage would have to be pretty damn sweet looking to have 4 of the same mold (Classics Mirage, Fracture, Dragstrip and "Red") or even 6 (if you have Classics, Henkei, Botcon clear, Fracture Dragstrip and "Red")

Course the same could be said for Seeker molds...

I'd bet it will be the deluxe Prime repainted, so not a loss.

But two times two molds repeated in the first seven figure?...

Curious about the Red Mirage more then the other two. I already have CJ with the kit, so he's pretty much perfect. Nemesis already got him. But a red Mirage...very interesting. I do wish that they would at least do a new head mold, but still. He's one of my favorite molds from the cls/unv line. I'll pick him up no matter who he is.

What are the chances of seeing another repaint of voyger Megatron in G1 colours, im so close to buying henkei but with starscream getting a better paint job in universe and this line coming should I wait and see?

also bring on cliffjumper I dont have him so I'll probably jump on this one especially if he has a new head

I think they're going to be available in Australia. Hasbro UK has no plans to sell them, and isn't aware of any plans to do so.
