    Is it possible that this means Arcee and the new Soundwave will be used to round out that deluxe case assortment? They usually go with four deluxes...

    wave 3 of animated voyagers? um, we're past that already.

    anyways, I don't buy this. one group is set to be be released one day before the previously mentioned "remove and destroy" date, and one group is set to be released one day after the "remove and destroy" date, and one day AFTER the movie line is released.

    seems to me like these would be moved up in release date, not back.

    Based on the teaser of Transwarped, there is no way in hell Voyager Blackout will be in scale with everyone else.....

    oh god I hope they don't make him as small as voyager Lugnut.

    Although I'm in the "Animated toyline isn't canceled" camp, this kind of worries me. Golfire Grimlock and Hydrodive Bumblebee have almost the same release date listed, which just happens to be the same time as Botcon/the movie line. I suspect that the date is a placeholder.

    It still makes me wonder where Hydrodive Bumblebee's at, especially since that date's almost three months off, that's a long time in between waves. So Arcee's wave and Hydrodive Bumblebee's should fall somewhere in between I assume.

    Oh, and is it just me that's worried that "Wingblade" Prime is just a repaint, too? Cause I'm looking at my Voyager Prime with his axe on his back........ sure looks like wing blades to me.

    Out of all these names flying around.
    It's Rodimus that I'm most worried about.

    I need more Primes!

    Can't wait.


    I don't care how big Blackout is, no way they could ever make him in scale with any mainline guy besides Lugnut. I just want him to have a good toy, I don't care how big he has to be. Quality over quantity.

    Exactly.

    I'm not sure what to make of those dates, given the other rumors and whatnot flying around. Among other things, once again the toys would be hitting the shelves after S3 has finished airing.

    I remember hearing a while back that Hasbro took some legal action against one of their Chinese factories for leaking RotF toys. I wonder if that may somehow tie into the delay.

    Well, if some of the images we've seen are right, a scale Blackout would have to be about 2 feet tall. There is no way in hell we'd get something that big. Even if he ends up short like Lugnut, you know what? Just having a toy of him is good enough for me.
