    News Post : A Brief Look At The Upcoming Transformers Figures

    If you are wondering why this is titled "A Brief Look At The Upcoming Transformers Figures", that's because there can be a lot to say about the upcoming figures but we'll keep that to when these get released. :)

    Hasn't it been confirmed soundwave will get a figure? I wish some of these figures were released at botcon but we have to wait till august for leader starscream but i might get that leader optimus. But the repaints of random figures ugh. New molds like in generations yay.

    So there's going to be a release of just prime and bumblebee out of generations, as their own wave? the listing makes it seem that way. that'd explain what was going on at tru.com yesterday.

    Do my eyes deceive me? A new Animated wave coming out?

    Hmm...Animated Rodimus and Ironhide, perhaps?

    Not much there we haven't seen or heard about.

    But WFC Ratchet and Screamer? Neat!

    There's a new stock (Wave 7 Rev 1) arriving to stores soon. Check your pre-order websites. :)

    yeah, but why are they all previously released, widely available figures, meanwhile other animated are still in limbo?

    I imagine they must be clearing out old stock.

    You've got a good point, sir. Explains why the stores have listed the Animated wave. :)

    Could be an attempt to spark interest in Animated with the new fans that were brought in with ROTF, with some of the Main Character figs that haven't been on shelves for awhile (Lockdown, BB, Optimus). I know I will actually be picking up Lockdown and Cyb. OP because I like the Original lockdown deco better than the Burning one I currently own, and I don't own the OP mold and wish they would just repaint that thing into Kup or something so I could have an easier time justifying the purchase.

    The Robot Replicas revision is good news, but I hope the next revision wave has Optimus Prime and Ironhide as those two are very hard to come across, especially Optimus.

    The animated thing is just wierd. If hasbro is sending out a wave of animated to stores, why not include the cancelled redecos? that doesnt make any goddamn sense. I get that some of them are probably old stock, but come on. throw wasp in there.

    I do wish swindle was in the wave. my swindle's left shoulder shattered, and needs to be replaced.

    *waits for starving animated fans to start speculating about a relaunch*

    Interesting. Definitely wasn't expecting certain revision waves, but it's a nice little surprise. Might get a second Animated Lockdown for kitbashing fodder. Other than that the only one's I absolutely know I'll get (assuming I can find all of them at retail), are Legends Ravage, Legends T.Hound, PCC Huffer, Deluxe BB Bumblebee, and Deluxe Thrust. Might get HA Jazz, but I'm going to wait for a review or two of him, and a good in-person look, before deciding.

    So no word on HA Mudflap? Disappointing.

    I'm glad to see they're re-releasing all the Animated figures that I can still find.

    Rodimus and Ironhide are TRU exclusives. not mass retail.

    As for WfC, Soundwave is confirmed. What is the source on the Ratchet + Starscream rumor?
