    Oh and the other two Walmart exclusives. All the store exclusives have that Shined name tag. There are going to be a lot of Deluxe Optimus at Walmarts.

    Love the art on BB and SS.

    What makes Prime different? His paint looks pretty much the same to me.

    Sideswipe is NICE, trust me!

    Now I can't wait for that Optimus to hit the UK...if he's good enough, it might save me £80 on a certain ultimate figure. :p

    Awesome. Can't wait to get Sideswipe and 'Bee. Prime can go spark himself.

    The sideswipe uses the Awesome Sidearm Sideswipe mold. The one with the blasters instead of swords. Completely different transformation from other sideswipes.

    While laughably the bumblebee uses the exact same mold as the 2007 original concept camaro bumblebee. Just with a new nascar style paint scheme.

    Even down to useing the same head as the 2007 version.
    I'm still going to get them all but the sideswipe is the only one I'm saving up to horde multiples of.

    Yeah. I'm getting the prime. Though with a case assortment so dense, its may be here for a while.

    Sideswipe is a redeco of the HFTD Sidearm Sideswipe. Not too sure about Bumblebee though

    I want the Prime, but the race decos of SS and Bee do nothing for me.

    Lovin' the Nascar Bee and Sideswipe ;)  Definite must for me. Though I wonder, why did they use the Movie 1 Deluxe mold (from the picture, that's exactly what it looks to be), instead of the new movie mold, which is just SCREAMING Nascar with the netted windows and the spoiler.

    Why, Hasbro? Just... Why? Why re-release that old mold again if we've all seen it billions of times, and are actually getting tired of it, while you've got a perfect mold that looks exactly the part for the whole Nascar deal.

    Here's a crazy idea: Why not bring some Decepticon Nascars in the picture? You have to have a reason for all those Autobots on the tracks (other than having fun...) Maybe repaint Sideways, or something to fit into the theme...

    ^ I'm sure it has something to do with how the exclusives were organized this time around. Except for the Wal-Mart Prime, none of them are "MechTech" toys.

    Plus, Hasbro is probably conscious of which molds they've really spammed. They have a Cannon 'bee exclusive, a Concept 'bee exclusive, and the new 'bees on shelves, and those are all at least distinctly different. However, I'm not sure why they held back the Battle Blade mold, which is so far a one-shot.

    Forget those!

    When does "Space Case" ship out? It's the only legit figure in that DOTM lot!
