    Starscream was shown at a Chinese convention last month, but we haven't seen anything else, aside from Soundwave and the current FOC figures.

    Yeah I remember that picture, I meant on the display painted, and all snarky and Starscreamish like, that would make my day.

    Oh, also, just to scare you all.

    Dreadwing looks ace.

    Would it be possible to ask one of Hasbro's staff to give transforming FoC Kickback another go?

    Singapore not equals Chinese! No offence, but as a Singaporean I HAD to point that out.

    I think i'll have to take a closer look at that Dreadwing, i just breezed through the pics, so didn't really get a good look at him, the clear weapon gave me the impression that it was the cyberverse at first, heh.

    Anyways, the only three figures that interest me in that entire list are Dreadwing, Airachnid, god, i hope she's mis-transformed, she has so much kibble behind her head, i actually had to do a double take to make sure the name tag said Deluxe. With any luck, she might be a tripple changer, if her rotors are articulated.

    And Terricon Cliffjumper, He looks sweet! I'm so hoping that he gets released at retail (even without the exclusive packaging), since i didn't get the FE version, i'd love to have this guy (I need some undead in my collection)

    The only thing i'm disappointed about, is that we didn't see any hint of a Weaponizer/Leader Megatron.

    Kinda defeats the purpose of an exclusive doesn't it?

    Ah, thought it was shown at a Chinese convention, my bad. :) 

    Don't count on it. The entire reason this is a SDCC exclusive is because a retail version can't happen anymore, not with FE dead.

    Wow! I really get a kick out of the packaging for Terrorcon Cliffy. The giant head version freaked me out!:lol  As I said before, I have no interest since I have the regular FE, but the deco looks pretty awesome and I like how none of the car "scars" are lost in robot mode, especially the one on his hood which ends up on his back.

    I really wish game-accurate Bruticus wasn't an SDCC exclusive. Aquiring him being a potential problem, he'll also be out on HTS around the same time pre-orders go up for a figma I've been wanting for months. If only I had more money!

    Dreadwing...holy shit I want him. He looks amazing.

    Bumble-armor...frankly, I could see somebody doing something with this to make it better, but as it is I have no interest.

    MP-10 looks nice, again, but he doesn't appear to come with the Energon Axe, which is kind of a bummer.

    Also, for those of you who are wanting Terrorcon Cliffy at retail, not happening. But, Hasbro did say at their panel that getting the FE's back out and finally at American retail proper is one of their top priorities, so there is still some hope.

    Hopefully MP-10 will be easier to get a hold of than the other TRU MP's they've put out in the past.

    Hopefully the FEs will get re-released, I also hope they say something about a Leader Megatron eventually.
