    Those new RID characters need Warrior versions made.

    Anyway, RID Twinferno, Thermidore, and Bludgeon will be mine.

    Very interesting that 'Lunar Force' has its own little logo, rather than just being a 'special mission' descriptor for that particular Crash Combiners redeco...

    Holy F. The pics show the figs at a distance, but that TR Overlord looks even more fantastic to me now. WANT.

    Part 4...

    The last few Transformers photos from the Toy & Hobby Fair.

    Rescue Bots.
    The primary theme/gimmick this year are the Flip Racers.

    The big Optimus below is a pre-production figure, so is missing paint details.

    And a recap of the reveal of the Deluxe Misfire and Slugslinger toys, with some extra photos.

    You can just see it on the front of the packaging - the small white chest panel flips up to hide the head.
    (the toy out of packaging didn't flip it up though, so the head is still showing)

    I'm sorry, but that Leader Prime just looks SO bad, it's not even funny. With how simple these things are, you'd think they'd finally able to transform them correctly... (>.<)

    That one is my fault... I was playing with it and ran out of time, so didn't get to transform it completely back to robot mode. (oops)

    Thanks for the pics! Lots of great stuff yo look forward to! Super odd (& disappointing) about Cosmos being a re-release tho. And are the stickers on Misfire/Slugslinger a first for generations deluxes?

    And it also looks like it won't have all the flame details in robot mode like the one at NY Toy Fair did. Both Optimus figures look terrible next to the Megatrons

    I noticed that too. Could be one of the Stunticons but I'm not sure. There's also another Vehicle next to him but I can't make out what it is.

    Steelbane's sword looks like the same one from the trailer that had the blood dripping from it.
