    ok i'm alittle confussed.. in the first 2 movie they came out with every character for the toy line , even ones that weren't characters ( incinerator , armohide , blockade , etc ) and repaints ....now why are they falling short for dotm figures> no other dreeds ? no dino/ mirage ? even a cool legend class brains would be sweet... why are we getting delt short on this one.. or do i have to customized to get the figures? anyone got a idea for dino yet?

    They're saving certain characters for the "Movie Trilogy" line coming out next year.

    It's because Hasbro hates you.

    Or what Raven said.

    Yea, rumor is that most of them are still coming down the pike in the trillogy line. I do think it is a mistep on Hasbro's part not releasing more figures either while the movie was in theaters, or in the lead up to the DVD release. Seems to me like it would be the best time to capitalize on the movie.....Or atleast before Christmas.

    I don't know who these "Dreeds" are, but I wouldn't mind having a deluxe Hatchet and Crowbar to go with Crankcase to complete my Dreads.

    :lol 



    WHY does everyone keep freaking about this?? Who said the movie figures are done with after the "known" waves come out?? The movie line figures are Hasbro's BEST SELLING TRANSFORMER LINE EVER... by a LONG shot. They're not gonna drop the golden egg, I assure you. Chill people, you'll get Mirage!

    You don't think somebody hasn't tried that already? I can't think of anything hotter than the flame wars that erupted back during ROTF, and obviously TFW survived. Mere matches will do nothing, Like Goggles.


    Because there are people who do not know how to use a search function.

    I got to wonder why Hasbro did this line like they did. Soundwave and Wheeljack are only now getting some toys, two of the Dreads only have Cyberverse, and Mirage, Brains, and the Driller are nowhere to be seen. Yet we've gotten new toys of a bunch of characters who didn't appear in DotM right at the start of the toy line.

    Can't help but feel we could've had the whole core movie cast by now in the other two lines.

    I just rofl'd so hard! :lol 

    This supposed movie trilogy line is news from a man named Shadow. Whether or not he is correct or lying is yet to be seen, however he is credited by the highly respected NIBMRatchet.

    Guess what, bro. It's not over yet. Even next year there's always going to be a catch-all line for 'em.

    Also "Dreeds" are miniature Dreads.

    Dino isn't out yet because of Toy rights or the Ferrari.

    Brains would be extremely complicated to make and design, since he turnds into a Laptop.

    As for the Dreads. We already have a decent Crankcase and Hatchet, all we need is a Deluxe Crowbar.

    Cyberverse Dreads make excellent stand-ins for mainline Dreeds.
