Hmmm, I wonder what the chances of them finishing the Cyber Slammers line with Megatron, Starscream and Bonecrusher...

More Robot Heroes will be cool though, but the mainline movie stuff needs to finish already, and I'm really not that interested in Universe...

So no Voyager Classics, or did they just reclassify them to jack up the price point?

I can't wait for the new Robot Heroes G1 releases!

That news made my day, seriously. I'm tired of all these Movie-verse Robot Heroes that don't even look like themselves. The G1 RH toys had a way of capturing the bots personalities that I couldn't get enough of.

Hold on ultras? So are they axing the voyager class? If they are that blows man.

They aren't axing the Voyager size class. As Clearly Animated has Voyager sized figures.

Just that the First few Waves of Universe don't have any figures in that size class. However, that doesn't mean future waves can't or won't have figures in that size class.

There's going to more even more movie toys?

They wanted to start using Ultras in place of the Voyagers so they could put more into them. At least that's what they said at the Botcon panel.

Saving all my cash for Classics Galvatron, Prowl and Powerglide then if there's no other good TFs in Universe I'm waiting for Animated Blackarachnia and Oil Slick and I'm hoping to god they'll push the release dates for Animated forward.

Ill probably get all the Classics line. It's really the focus of my collection-revival.
