Wow! For all the stuff that Hasbro put out for this movie the only thing remotely fascinating was a thrice re-painted 4 year old figure. That's just sad. :-(

wow, Hasbro really must love target. look at all those "only At Target" stickers. As for me, I can walk
to my nearest Target that's only about a mile away. :D

A lot of the Cyberverse repaints look lovely. Any word on which stores got which? Particularly the green Powerglide and Eradicon-esque Crowbar.

This made me think of the Mach Five, even though it doesn't resemble it that much.

As I don't yet have a Unicron figure, I'm psyched for this one. Just need to figure out how many Fansproject toys I have to pass on to be able to afford it...

I must know how I can get Unicron in Canada. They don't ship toys outside the US, do they?

Hasbro's Unicron doesn't look too bad at all. If anything, I'd say it's just as good as Takara's, only in a different way. Nice one Hasbro.

The blue and green bits on HA Sideswipe look absolute pants. Blegh. I wonder if someone can find out what color the LED is in Unicron's head? I can't stand Takara's red one behind the correct color eyes. I hope Hasbro got it right and put a green or clear one in. Can someone on the staff here find out?

I like that it might be possible to get the new Unicron repaint. Although Amazon US might be just as difficult and expensive to obtain as the Takara one this side of the pond.

I need that Unicron, already own the old Armada one but this one looks awesome considering the $59.99 ARP price.

Unicron is different enough that I'm still happier with the Takara release, so I won't need to re-buy, and I don't feel gypped for having bought the import.

Thanks Hasbro for doing those fans a solid :)

SpaceCase is not working for me too much. I was just telling Razorclaw0000 how much I dig that mold too.
I'll end up getting him, but I was hoping for something ... else ... better ... I dunno.

And what is up with the superfluous Cannon BB and Arcee repaints? Does the fact that these 2 molds were originally peg warmers mean nothing? Just seems like an odd choice to me.

Most of these retail exclusives are leaving me with a big question mark.

So are they're going to be 2 HA Leadfoots? One with the Target logo and one with?
