    Oh yeah, I've preordered Black Widow. You can never have too many evil robot spiders.

    These have price tags. Looks like they've been released!

    Very nice. Blackarachnia is a must and I'll probably pick up Archadis and Corhada too sense they will be cheaper than the originals from BW Neo... wasn't there also a listing at BBTS for a Tigatron in this set also? I suppose he's a later release though.

    That Cheetor looks slick. :) 

    Pretty awesome.. and if I had money to blow at botcon, I'd be picking up a few of these puppies.

    I'd be really interested in getting Blackarachnia. I have the rest.

    Still confused about the BBTS products. I preordered this:
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK10681&mode=retail

    ...but with the figures now being released in Japan, there's really no longer opportunity for the "early release" described in the title, nor has there been any information about a special boxset or anything.

    Additionally, the individual figures are retailing at $28. This set of eight is $240, which makes each one $30 - not much of a deal there, unless there's some kind of special packaging or bonus. Even though I locked in my preorder at $224, it still makes each figure $28, exactly the same as if you got them individually.

    Either way, I'm sure looking forward to them.

    That's what I've been asking for months. I was really excited to get a new Tigatron, but I never saw anything about it, so I cancelled my preorder and got an original off the junkion.

    The painted teeth on Cheetor are a nice touch. As is the mouth on Dinobot's robot head I've seen in other pics.

    Those two molds have to be nearly shot. I hope QC isn't an issue.

    Blackarachnia is a must. Cheetor and Dinobot look sweet. Where's Rattrap?

    Tigatron doesn't look any different than the JBW original.

    Those look awesome. I didnt even know they were releasing these again. The paint jobs are amazing all around.

    Primal looks kind of.....I dunno...."suprised", though.

    I think that's just a placeholder image. I don't think we've seen any definite pics of the new versions beyond May's Howlinger (which looks AMAZING). FanToFan's still using a placeholder for him, too.

    Bah....BA is only a cheaparsed repaint of Tarantulas once again. They couldnt even remold the damned head it seems. Well, there went my faint hopes that Takara would improve upon the line.

    "The generic we" already knew that'd be the case, though. It amounts to TakaraTomy's equivalent of our BW reissue line, but minus cool extras like the ships or Transmutate.

    Right now, Blackarachnia's the only one I still have on preorder. I was thinking I'd get all the Predacons for this reissue line, but was disappointed that Archadis didn't have that brighter, near-metallic gold from earlier pics, and don't care too much about the repainted RM Megatron. Still going to get Drancron in the summer.

    As far as the Maximals go, I'm liking Dinobot's choice of colors even less. I could see myself settle for Cheetor, as it beats any other version we've got, and maybe Corahda when he's cheaper. Primal definitely looks like an impressive repaint, at least.

    I'm still debating whether or not to pick up Convoy and Megatron... Kind of expensive for just the RM molds, but the recolours look extremely sharp.
