    Well, this is certainly an interesting development.

    Well at least it's a sign the movie trilogy line isn't necessarily dead in the water yet.

    ...and i'm maybe clutching at straws......but i'm inclined to take the fact the packaging isn't really any different from DOTM packaging as a positive indicator for the last few
    toys that are in Limbo. IE: Packaging art only requires slight modification.

    Yep a good sign that other releases will be making it to us eventually.

    Well, this will make a toyfair a bit more interesting. Now we just need some proof that this will be a serious run of new figures, versus a smattering of repaints and DOTM toys that would have already been released if Hasbro hadn't screwed up.

    This makes me a bit more optimistic, but it's still a case of wait and see. Especially considering how badly DOTM fell short vs. ROTF.

    An Optimus Truck at anything less than Voyager class bugs me, the trailer looks pointless............ Yet somehow the packaging makes me want to buy it.



    I think, Hasbro might prefer to just keep movie toys ticking over in anticipation of TF4. I doubt the avalanche of new toys we were (mis?)informed about is coming any time soon.

    This is exactly what I'm afraid of (or pleased about as my collection is entirely to big anyway).

    Well, if nothing else maybe we'll finally get Dino. There was strong evidence a deluxe mold did exist, and I still think the absence of a new HA toy in the first DOTM wave is a big indicator a HA mold exists as well. They've certainly had time to retool things by now.

    Well the packing isn't all that different which is sort of dissapointing. Still I'm eager to see what next year's New York Toy Fair will bring us.

    I'm STILL eager to see what new TFP toys will be coming!:D

    I don't think any of us should get ahead of ourselves here.


    ...I think, Hasbro probably knew from the start they'd have to design a Fauxrarri (groan!)... what i'm wondering however is that maybe even THAT wasn't enough for Mattel and Ferrari to look the otherway.

    In the case of Sideways, he was there and gone in short order. Mirage however was probably a bit more visible.

    Conversely, if there IS a vialbe Mirage that Hasbro can release...maybe they want to hold of on it for the moment, until they know what is or isn't happening with TF4, Especially when retailers are probaly soured on movie toys for the moment.

    I haven't bought a movie toy in a while, but I like that toy. Hmm.

    I don't think retailers know one line of transformers from the next. I'm pretty sure that's why they did HFTD instead of just continuing to call it ROTF. I think all the retailers notice is that they don't want a line with the same name to long (unless they can't keep it on shelves).

    As far as holding off for the next movie- that's the heart of the question. All we've seen so far for this line is repaints and US issues of toys Japan had a while ago. Will this be a real toyline, or just a half assed string of repaints. I have a feeling it may just be repaints since they showed a handful of toys and all were repaints.

    That being said, if they're sitting on a releasable Dino I suspect they will. They can always redesign him for the next movie (you know, like Bumblebee)- he may not even be in the next movie. Right now Hasbro is sitting on something they spent time and lots of money developing. If they can get it to shelves I bet they will.

    But we don't know what's going on. You may be right, maybe there NEVER WAS a Ferrari toy. Maybe it was always a knock off, and it didn't fly.

    I'd concur, although i think in part the RTS/HFTD thing was intended to include toys that arent' strictly movie-related.

    Actually calling a subline Movie trilogy though... I hope retailers don't care about the name either.

    I'd really had my sights set on the repaints of DX Soundwave and Wheeljack. Hopefully they'll make the cut.

    Another one to stay MISB, though I am thinking this one is gonna sell quite well, and would have been a damn good kid-friendly purchase before Christmas.

    It's going to look super cool next to G1 Optimus Prime.
