Am I the only one who HATES the Wreckers figures? As someone who holds Last Stand of the Wreckers as my favorite comic series, I don't feel they've been done justice at all. Although that might stem from me not liking the FoC Bruticus mold in the first place. I have just one question: What's with the orange?! No one except Roadbuster should have orange! :-x

So are the first edition toys from Prime going to be in American TRUs? Also is only the one of the deluxes coming out? I do not quite understand what "The Choice" means?

Great. I won't touch the Conbaticons, but the Wrecker remolds? Sign me up!
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Didn't hasbro say something at Bot-con about 40 new figures? 5 components to Bruticus x 4 known repaints/remolds= 20 figures. Is a Springer part of the Wreckers set or just the Deluxe mold?

None of the Bruticus figures are released in 2013, they're all coming in 2012. Only Ruination is coming in 2013.

And Springer is unfortunately a separate repaint, not in the combiner team.

i love the wreckers as ruination. Just one thing id like to point out to everybody crying foul about their combination or colours, theyre not the IDW/G1 characters, theyre the united continuity. so if hasbro changes things, then thats how they are in this continuity

for the record i DID want a purple impactor

Do we know that for sure though? For all we know, only FoC molds are used for these guys, and they're not part of the aligned continuity family. We only seen pictures of them, after all. On the other hand, they were grouped with the actual FoC figures in the FoC lineup slide...

Though for the record, I love their colors. Possibly except for Topspin, just because it's too close-looking to G2 Blast-Off.

As the first post says:

Hasbro is going to re-release the Transformers Prime: First Edition toys this fall, around November. Exclusive to Toys R Us.


And as confirmed by the slides, the figures released are Voyagers Bulkhead and Optimus Prime, and Deluxes Arcee, Starscream, Vehicon and Terrorcon Cliffjumper.

The Choice, if you're referring to this slide:
Image

was possibly how they chose which of the three figures (BB, CJ and Terrorcon CJ) to actually release. Fortunately, not Bumbleblurgh.

Given that Regeneration is Furman/Wildman I pretty much consider it Marvel UK. So yeah, they're fine, for now.

because the molds are being used for the Japanese releases? :???:

maybe not like, but it's at least vaguely plausible.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

A lot of news has come out of this year's SDCC, and most of it has been good. The Generations GDO figures are going to see a domestic release, the return of the Transformers Prime First Edition figures, Fall of Cybertron Voyager Grimlock just to name a few, but now we have a couple of disappointments to report. Our man on the scene Seibertron has been able to confirm that Hasbro has no current plans to release Voyager Breakdown or Gaia Unicron in the domestic Transformers Prime line. Does that mean they will never happen? Only time will tell, but for now we suggest importing the Takara versions of these characters.
