    Pretty sure HD Bumblebee is at the voyager pricepoint (same reasoning behind Wingblade Prime) and that cybertronian Ironhide is a retool of Ratchet.

    I read that cybertronian Ironhide is definitely supposed to be a new mold. Updated HD Bumblebee though

    Im confused, I read somewhere fall 2010 universe classics return, then I see now deluxe dirge planned for spring under rotf, is that dirge the classics dirge repaint we have all been hoping for in a U.S.A release? And if so is he in universe or rotf packaging? Does this mean its really spring not fall 2010 for the classics universe return?

    It's a cone head Dirge mold for ROTF NOT, I repeat, NOT a Henkei Dirge (recolor or whatever) in ROTF packaging.

    Correct, but with the trailer (wing, jet pack) and Magnus Hammer. So it's a lot of stuff for the voyager price point. In other words, he looks big all put together.

    Isn't Wing-Prime's jet pack and hammer compatible with the voyager toy?

    Yes it is.

    And the Prime mold used for Wingblade Prime is the same as the deluxe Prime from the Animated 2 pack with Megatron.

    Thanks for the compilation of the list. It makes the keeping track of things to come so much easier.
    Glad to see that there are still plans to continue the Animated line even though the cartoon series is over.
