    Let's see if they can hold to these dates now. They've been pretty good at it lately.

    Aside from the ones that are a bit more imminent (Bluestreak, Prowl, Smokescreen), there's no mention of Armored Jetfire, Elita-1, "Frenzy" and Ravage, Galvatron, "Retro" Galvatron, Ricochet, or Battle Damage Ultra Magnus.

    Given the exclusive nature of several of these, I might not expect them on the mass-release list... still, it would be great to know when to expect them.

    I think they will meet these dates, although I think it weird they don't show any the exclusives ship dates. Like the three Datsun bros., Frenzy, or Elita One. I am still catching up with what is out.

    LOL great minds think alike I understand they can not tell us when they are available to purchase but they could let us know when they leave the wearhouse.

    These look great, but I miss the Hard Hero busts, I loved the G1 cartoon likenesses.
    I have the complete set (minus Unicron).
    I notice on their website that they still exist, doing Conan statues now.

    Agreed.

    Gotta say, I continue to be impressed with these busts/statues, and I hope for continued success for AA/Diamond with the license. Aside from the fact that they're the only ONLY group producing Transformers-related products that still insists FIRRIB :rolleyes: , I think they've done a stellar job.

    Would like to see more statues... Omega is great. A Superion or Menasor statue would be the cats pajamas.

    I like them as well; in fact, I think HH, Palisades, and Diamond have all done a great job of producing differentiated products. If you like the idea of a TF statue/bust, chances are there's one out there for you. I only wish HH's BW statues and F4F's BW busts had made it.

    I would kill for stunticons, etc.. statues, Omega will be a holiday gift for me. I hope Diamond/ArtAsylum keep the license long enough to finish the G1 lineup. I want to see Wheeljack, Tracks, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker most of all before they close up shop.

    EEEhhhh, I'd rather get the toys. Like Inferno in the Universe line, I think he comes out at Christmas or in 09.

    But, FIRRIB. :D 

    And FIBRIR, of course.

    But most of all, Frenzy is silver.

    Good to know a release schedule for these busts.

    Man, these are so great but I'm desperately trying to hold off collecting yet a whole new TF line. I brought a couple (Soundwave & Cliffjumper) and kept telling myself "You don't have to buy them all and be completist"... but they're ALL that good!
