    That's good.

    It means the comic will get spoiled faster!

    Me need know about comic in box!

    I want to know if it's the whole of arrival #6.
    As I think both parts of the issue deal with the twins(based on the art styles of the previews and leaks)

    I am highly anticipating that these two figs will be the biggest disappointment for the Animated line.

    Still gonna get them though. Eventually.

    about the figures, I really don't like these figures, they look horrible as
    Safeguard (isn't that a soap brand?), it has really bad Popeye arms
    and the arms on the individual robots are anorexic with hands the don't move.

    about scaplers:
    seriously, why do people feel the need to buy so many, people want
    transformers, and can't rightfully find certain ones because of jackasses
    that want to horde then overprice them and be greedy about it.
    it took me a month to find the movie Bumblebee, and 3 weeks to find
    the Universe Ironhide (after I knew it to be out here) because of his fact.

    I for one will pass on any new figure I can't buy for retail prices, I will do
    without it before I give someone the satisfaction of getting twice my money.
    besides really!!! you can go get most of the Transformers from Hasbro's site,
    also I can wait for the toys to be officially released locally i am not paying
    $50 on Ebay plus $30 shipping from China, $80 for a $10 figure just to get
    it a few months before it hits the shelves?

    something Like the Henkei lot would be worth $20 - $25 because of the Japanese
    only releases, like the Encore line being around $35 for a standard size toy, that and
    the cheesyness of Hasbro's lame attempts at the reissues with the oversized "unattentive
    parent" missiles and the lack of chrome, to me makes it not a true reissue, hence paying
    the extra for the Takara version, besides a kid whose 5+ is not likely to be a moron,
    hey we all survived the original 80's releases without choking, or putting an eye out.

    and yet I know as I type this someone with a Transformers related eye patch is reading going
    umm derr taht's not trooe.....

    please forgive the somewhat rant, the fact that whose ever pic that is ticked me off with
    having 6 of these things in his livingroom, knowing what is planned for them.

    I think this guy said that he bought all of those for specific people that asked for them.

    edit: Both STL and jaydisc reviewed them, but it still didn't really help my understand which comic they were packed with.

    Jaydisc is a well respected member of otca.com.au [ OzFormers Transformers Collectors Australia ] - a forum based collector group that helps other members find Transformers products.

    He was SMSed by a fellow member that these were available at a local toystore, he then asked everyone that was active on his MSN list if they wanted one and went out to get them, for fellow members in Melbourne. A major factor for buying for other members is to prevent scalping.

    Jeez jumping conclusions a bit guys? As far as I've ever seen, if board members take a photo with tons of any product they usually have that many for a reason. Scalpers know not to flaunt their aquisitions cuz they know they are widely hated amungst fans.

    Either way good find and it's great that you bought multiples to help out other board members, we can't let our precious toys get in the hands of those grubby kids out there :D

    I just said I saw the pic and it came to mind about this, and
    I wanted to chime in about what the couple other members were saying
    about scalping.

    if helping is what he is doing more power to him and others
    like that, that is a good thing because I know some transformers are
    obscure and only released in certain areas, but there are others that
    that is all they do is horde TF's as well as other toys and jack up the prices.

    anyway good for him to do that for others so long as the prices aren't
    jacked for a profit.
