    I have been looking at the exclusives comming out and I am not really all that impressed. For me the only MUST have will be the MP HotRod/Rodimus.

    Starscream repaint of the Skystriker. It's a dream come true for me...GI Joe/Transformers crossover in toy form!

    I agree. I'm just interested in the MP Rodimus. To me, the Starscream GI Joe thing doesn't interest me, and I'm not a GI Joe fan.

    I'm only impressed by MP Hot Rod too, but I'll buy the two Hasbro exclusives anyways. Money reasons will prevent me from getting the Starscream GI Joe, but it is pretty cool.

    I probably would've been more excited for a Mighty Mugg Ironhide than what we are getting though.

    I'm not terribly impressed with the TF exclusives. Was really hoping for a G1 reissue, like Shockwave. THAT would have lit a fire under the fanbase.

    I will probably try to pick up a few of the TF items, but I like the Starscream Skystriker a lot. Very cool idea.

    I'm still pretty impressed they managed to crank out a US MP Hot Rod this quickly (did Grimlock make it over this fast?). Alas, I think I've had a change of heart and probably won't be pursuing it.

    Rodimus is a SDCC exclusive? Oh man I hope that the one with the Targetmaster does make it to TRU.

    It's a TRU exclusive that will be available at SDCC first. Rodimus is not an SDCC exclusive.

    Not particularly impressed.

    But happy, because it means the prime shelf can get started. It's sort of sitting there, hollow and unloved right now.

    Looking forward to trying to buy Rodimus.

    Good cause that little sticker on the packaging scarred me when I saw that it read "Limited Edition Offshoot".

    I'd be stunned if Hasbro reissued Shockwave through any venue because of the rights issues with the mold. If a reissue ever happens, I think Takara is far more likely to pull it off since they could reissue it at retail with no problems, where Hasbro could run into problems with the gun alt mode.

    My favorite is still the Rodimus Alternator. I really should open him up someday.

    I bought a loose one a few weeks back and it's fantastic ... if that helps motivate you.

    That's the one exclusive that I'm really interested in. The TF exclusives look pretty good but I've already got the Takara MP RP and I'm not all that interested in the Prime toys (although I am startin to really enjoy the show).

    Btw, if anyone would be willing to pick up a Zarana (arah-style) for me, I'd be very interested in a PM. :)

    Depending on the price, I might pick up the Prime figure on HTS after the convention. Looks pretty cool to me!

    I'm only interested in Swamp Thing. I'll be fine without the TF exclusives this year.
