    I really wish they would release a Voyager Megatron but then again Optimus would be way out of scale

    Methinks Hasbro is feeling the heat from third parties.

    Anything that drives down the price of Warbot Defender is good in my view (then I can actually get one for less that £100.00).

    If I was a gambling man, I would sell my Defender now and make a nice profit on the deal.

    But I'm a pussy, so I'll wait till i have this Springer in hand before deciding. Hopefully I'll still break even.

    Um... What?!?!?! They weren't even in the game, were they?! But despite that, I may get Springer for the multi-continuity Wrecker group I'm going to make but I think I'll pass on Astrotrain. I've never been a fan of train Transformers.

    Edit: Wait, that's official concept art from The Art Of Fall Of Cybertron!!! If he ends up looking like that, he's bought on siOh wait I'm Australian. If I ever get round to it, I'll gleefully buy him online.

    Yet more FOCing Generations toys. I want some Classics please. If not for the GDO line we would only be getting FOC toys from Generations!

    I wonder if they'll be in the style of FOC or just plain Generations now?
    Did Astrotrain have art in the FOC art book?

    Voyager Astrotrain... anything confirming these actually are triple changers? I see nothing in the description... And the game art of Springer may not be what the figure design actually is. If Astrotrain's a half-decent triple changer he's definitely replacing my classics version! Astrotrain needs to be a bigger con imo :D  .

    Springer on the other hand, I'm quite content with Defender as a large deluxe. This new mold will have to be pretty mind blowing for me to bite. Even then I may wait for potential Sandstorm repaint.

    Glad they are making these and buying them but I really wish they would make a classics Blitzwing.

    Hmmm...

    Voyager Triple Changers. I hope they go over real well. Then maybe we'll see a few more of them. (and the suggested Sandstorm out of him would work for me if it ment getting two Autobot Triple Changers.)
