    I do believe that's a Porg. A creature from the Star Wars series.

    Unless you need the money, yeah, I'd recommend keeping it. It's selling for gangbusters on eBay, but if I had that level of money to burn, you'd bet I'd overnight a Porg onto my porch

    Seems that they got more expensive? I think in TR the Leader class base cost was 45$, no? At least on HTS that\'s what they cost.

    Legends Class (not like Legion class) seem to be cheap.

    The parallels do line up well... though I half expect the cars to be a dustoff of the old "Robot Powered Machines" that basically had a bot printed on the car's undercarriage.

    Gripe Time: They're gonna make us wait til APRIL for more TTC's? With Collector ADD, that kind of wait between releases is like a Kiss of Death... the biggest thing that kept Axis & Allies Minis and War at Sea alive through long doldrums was rabid fans who didn't buy their boosters in case-lots, we bought our cases in Distributor-Level lots.

    Pleased to see that there are no major price changes, shame they're saying the leaders won't be out until the new year though.

    Haha, all you guys complaining about $30 voyagers.. At least your Titan Masters aren't $10, Legends $20, Deluxes $25-30, Voyagers ranging around $50 and $90-100 leaders

    It's actually a smart move on TRU's part. They already have at least a 50% markup on everything, and upping the price of Voyager toys, that kids need to complete the set, helps them cover the loss they may take when they have to deep discount TLK toys. Also considering the situation that they are in I don't begrudge them a $5 increase on two assortments.

    This is good news indeed! Primemasters, Legends, Deluxe, Voyager all release on December 1st. Which in TRU's world means that we could see them by mid-November. Unless it's a movie line with a designated street date, TRU tends to ignore manufacturer release dates and just puts items out as they get them. For that matter, they could start showing up even earlier than mid November on EBay....

    I just hope Hasbro doesn't pull the bullshit like they did with CW wave 1 and 2: release the voyager and 3 of it's limbs. I want the full wave that will make a complete combiner like the later CW waves.

    Have they ever even ordered anything else beyond wave 1 for TLK? I have literally never seen anything beyond wave 1 at TRU in MD. Kinda sad considering I now have the movie on ITunes yet havent gotten my hands on any wave 2 or 3 deluxes. Seems like the only stores stocking anything beyond wave 1 is Target and Walmart. Found Scorn and Nitro exactly once at Walmart, and found Megatron and Hound only twice at Target.

    Must have missed that leak. If i can get Grimlock, Swoop, Slug then I'll borrow 2 Skydives from Sky Reign. Skydives color scheme will be a close match with the dinobots. A couple stand alone limbs can then fill in on Sky Reign.

    I want to believe those assortment lists are set in stone, but they could very well change.

    It was a leak consisting of photos of computer screens depicting an internal presentation.

    Hasbro asked to remove the pics shortly afterwards.

    I don't know what your TRU is doing, but never in 33 years have I seen anything at '50% more' at any Toys R Us, ever.
