    Weird that they show up in the Philippines first. Oh well, guess that means they'll be out here soon enough.

    Hope Remy does some galleries for the new Cybertron releases...

    Technically, they did show up in the US first, just not in stores. But I guess that doesn't count, it usually hasn't. :)

    Maybe I got too passive and didn't notice when the same two or three test shot images kept getting passed around as "new," but man, Override GT's very... black. I thought her sides were the same grey/white color. Looks more appealing, but I don't think it's enough to get me to try the mold.

    Awesome, hopefully they hit stores soon then :) 

    Still like the Takara one better but considering the price difference I have no complaints :lol 

    Lets just hope they follow up with white Chromia and production Noisemaze

    If that means the usual 6-week delay till they hit stores here, that's total screws up the supposed March release date for the deluxes. :(  And that would make me a sad panda.

    6 weeks??! Are you serious? I don't recall them taking THAT long to go from Hong Kong to the US.

    That really sucks. I wants my toys :cry

    There is no set "rule" for how long it takes from the HK release to a proper US release. Mind you, Hong Kong got toys LATER than the US ever since the beginning of this year, and the new Deluxes are already in stock at US online stores.

    You missed everything from the initial Hasbro preview at BotCon to Adam Pawlus confirming that the toy showed up under both names in their preorder sheets to in-packaging sample pics. :p 

    Basically, the name "Doubleclutch" only ever popped up ONCE.

    I, in no way, purchased a Cybertron Excillion from eBay. No sir. Not me.

    Like Nevermore said it's not a set rule. That was just the standard turn around for a while last year sometime. For some reason I remember it in conjunction with Decepticharge coming out.

    Hmmm... when i preordered Excellion it was $11.49.
    Now the 2nd preorder is $12.49 :peoples: 




    Most of them forgot about that.. this week the sky is falling in becasue Alt Nemesis Prime *might* be limited for a while.

    Only after they'd stripped pretty much every single online retailer of ANY of the GF Sonic Bombers left.

    Transformers fans are retarded. That's why.

    Just takes a photo of an incorrectly assembled toy, or a packing mock up and there's a riot. Not even actual evidence to the contrary or the word of people in the know, such as Don Figueroa, can change their minds.


    Because, you know, alot of people believe Hasbro hates our guts and would go so far as to remove Wing Saber's swords because they want to get us personally.
