Ha ha! For the first time trying to get on the TCC site is like trying to get onto Seibertron at certain times of the day.

I'm a little surprised they changed the name of Octane to Tankor.
I'm totally excited to get a time frame to order me some Seacons too!

Yay, the Seacons are finally going to happen - too bad they picked the absolute worse time to release them. I have barely 10$ to my name right now.

...Ironic, I who wanted the set so badly, more than almost anyone, and waited and waited and waited... and I'll be the only one who actually be able to get a set.

c'est triste.

As for Classics... well, whatever. I'm not really excited for that line, so pass.

Tankor ? Isn't that a Beast Machines character ? Or did they just change the name ? That would be a little unfortunate for Classics...

Nice. Im just glad that most of the animated toys suck. It allows me to put more money into the new classics.

EDITED BY MODERATOR: DO NOT POST PICS OF THE IMAGE.

I'm guessing we'll see Sunstreaker!

We're not allowed to repost the pic.

But he looks good. Not quite what I was expecting, and maybe a little bland, but still a good looking figure.

Why the name change for Octane? :-( Still, I'm looking forward to getting all of these.

I know there was a disclaimer earlier about pics from this announcement not being mirrored on this site out of respect for the TCC.

So would anyone that has access and has seen the pics be willing to give a description of the previewed figures and a little more info on the Seacons and Nightbeat for thsoe of us not in the club?

I'm planning on joining but don't have the funds to do so right this minute.

Did they lose the rights to octane and had to change the name to tankor or something.

Nice that you have taken people who arent members of the collectors club into consideration. With that in mind, this announcement is totally f**king pointless.

Still, glad to hear about whose making an appearance in classics 2.

Wonder what stopped them from getting the name Octane? Shell or another petroleum company perhaps?

Or Maybe Archer doesn't think "Octane" is an Evil sounding name...

Well, that I can do. The info for the Seacons and Nightbeat is what Pete posted. He did say images of both would be in this coming magazine.

As for Sunstreaker, he has a robot mode very similar to Alternator Mirage. What is interesting, is that the front end of the car folds down to make his back. So there is a good chance that when Sideswipe is released, his back with be Sunstreakers front. Very clever of Hasbro to make two robot modes out of one figure. I can predict many Punch/Counterpunch customs coming from this figure.
