    Loving the packaging for Cliffjumper, can't wait to pick him up in a few months.

    After seeing the pics of Bumblebee's exo-suit, I'm actually sold on it, I love the cyberverse vehicles and to add a mech suit to it is like icing on the cake.

    Dreadwing looks excellent. Hope that he keeps that blue for the retail release, too.

    What I like most though is the yellow clear plastic, it actually melds very well with the design, it's not a flaw like with Optimus or Starscream.

    Can't wait to pick him and hopefully his repaint brother, up eventually.

    Dreadwing is pure sex. Modifying his mechtech into his underslung cannon should be cake.

    Indeed, it really enhances the look of the figure. Even the gun looks surprisingly good! Really looks like this will be one of the winners of the line.

    There's a FOC/WFC Voyager Soundwave, meaning at least 2-3 more voyager molds.

    During the panel, they said in regards to FOC Dinobot toys that Grimlock is awesome in the game, and everyone would want one, but all 5 dinobots would be tougher. (Thus hinting to the Grimlock toy)

    He's being marketing like nothing else.


    Be patient, 99.9% chance there will be a Grimlock toy, and SDCC might be the time to reveal it.

    Dreadwing looks great.

    Cliffjumper will seep into my nightmares.

    Deluxe Flamewar please? Those colors would be sex on the Deluxe Arcee.

    wow, I'm very torn on Dreadwing,
    On the one hand I was going to wait for the inevitable Skyqauke repaint and put dreadwing with my 2006 Maximals as Depth Charge.

    But on the other hand they just ANNOUNCED a Depth Charge, so should I buy dreadwing or wait?

    A PRID light-up Mech-tech weapon that doesn't look like shit? :p 

    Dreadwing is a definite buy on site.

    Dreadwing looks like a good mold. I'd like to repaint him in G1 Dreadwing colors.

    Just buy Dreadwing and later Skyquake too. I mean, is it really a bad thing to own both siblings? :D

    So, still no Thundetron and Breakdown?

    And anyword on the other FOC toys mentioned? Sideswipe and Starscream are two I'd love to see, though, I thick Sideswipe might just be a Jazz repaint.

    I find it extremely lame that they can't be bothered to make all of the hugging Dinobots or all of the Insecticons. Soundwave Voyager? I'll get him for the discs. Soundwave should be a deluxe. MP-10? Too large won't fit in the chug line. I've got a thrid party trailer. Fireflight? I'll rename him scattorshot more than likely. Sideswipe and Starscream? Multiple buys of sideswipe, Maybe Starscream. Soundblaster? Fail. Go with Blaster. Again deluxe sized please. I'll be buying them to reshell if possible into a deluxe toy. Possiblity of Springer? Probably going to swing for Warbot if they can't get it together. With the addition of the Legion class to Generations it looks like it is going to be another lean year of official transformer buying. Raging Chug fan? Disappointed by what has been let out of the tube so far.
