    Okay, so who other than me is going absolutely NUTS wanting to see anything at all as far as toys are concerned for the new main bots in the movie other than the wreckers? (I'll not name name's just incase some odd ball out there has NO clue as to who the new guys are... I'll just say RED, BLUE, and SILVER)

    I mean Cmon... I realize they are the new bots and Hasbro wanted to probably "reveal" them after the movie released. But how long ago have we seen these guys in previews and what not?

    Plus I am sure secondary non-important characters should be showing up in the movie-verse line as well anytime here. We get remolds of Jolt, Skids, and Mudflap...all of whom are not even in the movie. But nothing for the new guys???

    Hasbro, your giving me a heart attack here... spoon feed us some images or something. I'm desperate to see how these guys are gonna look as toys. And also what size class we're going to get them in. ( We at least know we are going to get a HA SW).

    Yeah, seeing the movie really has me wanting toys of all of those characters that don't have any yet. Hopefully we can still get some toys of missing characters from RotF, like the other Constructicons. They made HA Jazz without him being in RotF, so maybe we can get some other old characters in the future...

    The movie just came out two days ago and we haven't hit the weekend yet so most people haven't had the opportunity to see these characters. Also, the amount of screen time that they got (with the exception of Soundwave) was so minimal that I don't see the general public being that interested in the toys, honestly.

    It's been what, two days since it was released here in the states. They said they were saving certain reveals for after the movie, but that doesn't mean RIGHT after the movie. Have some patience. They could theoretically reveal them on their site, but it's more likely that their saving them for SDCC.

    Fixed.

    Loosen up. A month from now we'll have other toys to think about.

    And on HA, they'll look like semi-accurate, but somewhat blocky, renditions of their onscreen models.

    They won't get Mir....Dino right. Ever.

    What did they say exactly? That they'd put them online once the movie hits, or that we'd see them at some point after the movie's release?

    Actually they could still sell them as Mirage and Wheeljack, and mention their "nicknames" in the bio or something. We already saw something sort of like this with Devas-I-mean-Brawl.

    Haha... I'm not overly pissed or anything. I'm just soooooo salivating after seeing the movie. I am just overly anxious to see new molds. :)

    To be honest I have a feeling that this is gonna be the king of repaints and we're not gonna get too many new mold figures.Hence Hasbro not showing hardly anything at Botcon is because its all gonna be the same boring stuff.I'm just glad I am about half done with my DOTM figure hunting.

    There weren't many new characters in DOTM, so I'm guessing there's going to be even less figures.
    Honestly, I feel like we saw many more figures prior to ROTF than we have for DOTM.

    I sense a conspiracy theory! Another variant of "Hasbro doesn't like money, so they don't want to sell toys".

    Am I mistaken, or did Hasbro not say they'd reveal them at Comic-Con? I kinda figured it made sense.

    They just said they'd reveal them after the movie came out. Nothing else.
