    - New Insignia?

    Anyone have a rough price estimate? Maybe $25 each? (I have no clue, just throwing that out there). I know they sure as heck won't be retail. There's only one I really want (Wheeljack) so I hope they don't make them a 4-pack.

    I'd do it. I want Knockout, Starscream (to be an "infected" Skywarp), Wheeljack, and I'll even take the Bumblebee. Now, it's getting the Megatron without Optimus that'd be a problem (assuming it came as a forced bundle).

    wait, online retailers get entire lines as exclusives? that's pretty cool, makes them feel more novelty.

    I kinda dig the Starscream one. It could be passed off as a midwarp Skywarp or something.

    I will say that the Wheeljack in that wave looks pretty damn awesome but the others are easy passes.

    Seems like they're all based on other characters. Bumblebee and Starscream are obvious as Goldbug and Skywarp, Wheeljack is very much looking like Slicer with Autobot symbols, and Knockout looks... a lot like Energon Demolishor ?

    They look so cool, but I'm only buying online for HUGE wants, as I can't do it often. :(

    I hope they aren't packed together as well. I really only want Wheeljack (Throw some Reproplabels on there and you've got a great Slicer) and maybe "Skywarp".

    this being bbts, and the figs are clear plastic, i'm guessing $35-40 per fig.

    Don't know about Optimus, but I'd take a stab that Megatron is like "Shadow Command" Megatron from RotF, and the "Shadow" Megs from Animated. IDW's Megs also eventually came to having a black color scheme similar. The black works REALLY well with Megs.

    Eh, I only really want that Knock Out, so I hope they're not in a four-pack... :wink:

    I actually like Bumble Bee / Gold Bug, Wheeljack / Slicer, and Megatron / Galvatron is much much better coloration. Prime should have been first edition, love the colors but not the legs and giant autobot logo

    I wish Knockout was green instead of yellow, and he'd have made a great Prime Wasp(inator).



    EDIT: Wait, I just saw the official pics...he IS green!! He will totally be Prime Wasp! Reprolabels can do magic with these guys! I already have AM Skywarp...
