So Megatron is a TF vs Joe universe version of himself. And it sounds as if it's based on the DDP version.
Hmmmm. I wonder. We never saw this mold in that series and the current storyline has Megs in US hands and deactivated. I wonder if this is for an up and comming story.
Then there is the WWI mention of his defeat of Sentinel Prime. Hmmm again.
ooo, Optimal Optimus and Scourge coming up
LOVE the boxes
nothing else to say about the toys themselves except "HURRY TO SHELVES DAMMIT!!! My money wants to buy you!"
"Optronix"? Was that the original name of Optimus Prime in War Within? Orion Pax a different continuity? Maybe I feel a "DOH!" moment comming on.
Optronix it was in DW's timeline
oh and Hiro Prime, i seem to recall the matrix-wielding cobra commander from Dreamwave's TF/Joe book, not DDP's [plus Don mentioned i think something about it being that megatron here the other day anyways]
still, i'm almost tempted to buy that megs upon reading the bio..but..eh...not tempted that much xD
Yup, Dreamwave comix continuity.
Orion Pax = cartoon continuity.
One thing I thought is worth noting, after seeing the little folding catalog thingy:
the name "Bumblebee", with a little TM by it!
Yay Hasbro! No Classics "Autobot Espionage Agent" for us!
Optimal Optimus and Scourge?! Sweet! *prays to God it's RiD Scourge*
I'm not that excited about Op Op honestly. But the 3" Predaking... oooooooh baby!
Can't wait for Optimal Op and WW Op, but the Scourge has my attention.
Whaoh! Awesome stuff. A Titanium Optimal Optimus sounds friggin' amazing.
*prays to Unicron that it's the REAL Scourge instead of just another lame black and teal repaint of Optimus*
Also hope that its the g1 Scourge.
Yeah, they got Bumblebee back a few months ago. I think Seibertron mentioned it on their rumors page.
Unfortunately with Hasbro and costs, this is the most likely scenario.
Does anyone else notice the name "DON" on Prime's Gun? XD
I figure it's going to be G1 Scourge, becuase a) I doubt they'd release Cybertron Scourge again so soon and b) I don't think Hasbro's so lame as to make a WWI Scourge out of WWI Prime. A G1 based Scourge would be awesome! I love the idea of finally having a version of this guy that actually matches his G1 cartoon model.
Titanium Optimal Op sounds freakin' sweet! Hopefully all his modes will translate well into the figure. It's not impossible, but I'm not too sure at that size.
Be interesting to see were Titaniums go after the 6" wave 3.
Haha, just noticed it now! Way cool nod to its creator.
And looking at Megs closely, it has also Don's famous trademark nosebridge!
Both will be mine, yessss. Heck, I might as well plan on getting all if OpOp and Scourge (hopefully g1) are as phenomenal.
Separate names with a comma.
