relative lull since the Takara-Tomy merger.

elaborate new 12" figure from Hot Toys looks fantastic. Preorders have
been listed at $139.99 and this is a must-have for your 12" PotC

I'm not getting any of it, but I'm glad they did. I hope this is a trend that catches on cause I'm bord with the movie and just wanna see the couple AllSpark characters that I want then be done with that.
Can't say I care about Anaimated, but I wanna see some breaking news on the new Classics already!

I don't know, cause they bother to make it while Hasbro just keeps recirculating recent figs.
Even when they bother to make new ones, all they do is rotate them till the stock runs out, just look at the RealGears for starters
Japan does they same thing too, but they continue to broaden the horizons as they do.

Sky Lynx’s hull is shell-resistant and steel-reinforced. His interplanetary travel capabilities are capable of a maximum speed of 30,000 mph and a range of 40,000,000 miles.
So if he were really booking it he could keep up with Apollo 10.

Grahf wrote:The earlier release of the classics line is bad news for me. I had to cancel my preorders because I just don't have the extra money right now. It sucks when you have too much preordered and they all end up falling into a two month period. As much as I want the classics, I want my MP Megs more.
Maybe it's just me, but unless it's something real rare, I never preorder. BBTS always sells out right away, but them restocks 2 weeks later. And something as comon as Classics will be on every web site anyway, so why bother.
To be honest, the only one that(possibly) intrests me is the recolored Megatron.

Not to take away any Botcon thunder, but I prey for seeker repaints so that the Japanese (and the rest of the world who missed out) can get a shot at these.

It's a good question. We should know in the next week or so. Pictures always hit early as Asian distributors get their hands on the product.
