    Fan-To-Fan's updated their early bird order page with new solicitation pictures for upcoming figures in Japan, some of which will also appear in the US.

    Among the nice new pictures (click on images for larger pics):
    -Clear and large image of the Trans-Scanning Bumblebee concept art. We can see exactly what this type of figure will do.
    -Nice large image of the concept art for Arcee Black Version, plus confirmation that the color scheme is based off of Lennox's bike during his final confrontation w/ Blackout.
    - Larger images of the Screen Battles sets. More detail seen on the human figures.

    Does "glasses guy" that comes with Scorponok have a hole in his back so you can impale him on the stinger?

    Cool. Looks like the trans-scanning figures will be able to transform into vehicle mode. Here's hoping that they show pictures of Pime soon, and that they get some kind of release here in the states. As for the Classics being more "show accurate", I don't really care, as I'm happy with the way my Classics look the way they are. The only one I have any interest in getting, would be another Starscream to turn into Thundercacker.

    Ooh makes me almost happy for missing the Hasbro Classics. I just hope they release Skywarp with his own package this time as I don't care for white Prime repaints.

    Oooh, I dig the Screen Battles accessories. And Trans-Scanning is looking like a purchase if it gets stateside.

    More accurate colors of Classics would be cool for some (Megs), but for the price, I'd have to eyeball it before ordering.

    Black Arcee, yay! I thought she is going to be a Decepticon because of being 'black'. Not care too much about Trans-scanning

    If the bot mode of the movie Arcee toy looked more like the art on that page it would be a completely awesome looking fig, but as it is I still don't like the mold. I was actually excited for a few moments before my brain kicked in and said "artwork not toy." Oh well its fun to dream...

    Cool info...I'd be interested in seeing the color differences in the Japanese Classics, but I doubt I'll get them since I'm perfectly happy with the Hasbro versions, and I have two of each of those already. Megatron would be tempting if it was an awesome silver like Cybertron Galvatron though...

    Trans-scanning BB looks....uhm....retarded. Piece former FTL.

    Hrm? It looks almost exactly like that artwork. In fact I'd say its one of the most accurate movie figures period.

    Body-wise I agree with you that Arcee is pretty accurate, but I probably should have been a bit clearer. The head (I didn't want to bring up a dead horse) is still likely going to be as fugly on the black toy as it is on the original. I actually like the face/head in the art and certainly wouldn't mind seeing that design in the sequel, but no matter how many pics I look at the differences in the toy feel off to me and the way it is colored my eye always looks right there. Oh well. To each his own, maybe the paint on the face for the new fig will change my mind (once we actually see it).
