    We have collected final production numbers from distributors and Blood is currently being produced. An announcement will be made on our twitter when the set ships to distributors and it will arrive in their hands 3-4 business days after that.

    Please check our site for more blood pictures.

    Drone is a future release, tooling cost will be paid for by Blood.

    Edit- Iguana is not cancelled, we are not sure how this info was spread. Nothing new was shown @ tfcon because the design has been completed but the tooling hasn't been started.

    The drone helicopter set on the Takara Vortex would make for a darn good Whirl. Much better than that TrU exclusive mess.

    The Blood set looks like it's not really significantly better than the head Hasbro made in the first place to me. I guess the main appeal is the helmet and to make it look different to Banzai-tron

    Looking forward to Blood. Hope we can get the deluxe version soon too.

    I have the Gyro set, but I want that Drone set too. Just need to get another Tomahawk. For some odd reason I feel like I need many Whirl styled bots now, so I'm hoping we'll see a set for DOTM Skyhammer eventually.

    I might get the Drone set when/if it actually gets released, but I'm not going to bother pre-ordering it. While I was interested in Blood initially, and the colored pictures look decent, it's taken too long to come out and there are other things I need the money for now.

    Really digging the chromed swords. The faces... Don't really care for the blue eyed version... and the Red Eyed one could've used a bit of paint to make the teeth stand out. Looks like a big white gap with the lighting. Well, nothing that can't be fixed on one's own I suppose. Still better than the original head by far.
