    Titanium Soundwave (3") was reported here before in the thread that had the alt mode for The Fallen, so I guess it went under.

    These ones are new:
    Cliffjumper
    Sunstreaker

    Oddly, Galvatron and battle damaged G1 Prime, both of who are already out in stores, are not listed on the site yet.

    Looks like sunstreaker is a straight sideswipe repaint. The head colored that way looks half way decent though.

    Really a shame that Sunstreaker got so little for years and now that he's finally back, he's reduced to repaints and remolds of Sideswipe. At least in Alternators he was a remold, even if it was used for Dead End first. Just not the same without the big ears though, you cant really get away with a repaint of Sideswipe like you can making Cliffjumper a Bumblebee repaint.

    Sunstreaker was supposed to be Decepticharge at one point, if I remember correctly. I believe it was displayed as such at SDCC or Botcon.

    Yay! Red Bumblebee...... absolutely dislike. :( 

    Which is weird, because I'm liking Sunstreaker who's also a bad repaint of a mold that's not very Sunstreaker-like.

    Weird indeed.

    :lol

    Holy crap- 3" Titanium Soundwave looks better than the 6"! I don't mind the repaints so much (although I'll likely skip 'Streaker; Just not interested in that one). Anyone else really enjoy these little buggers?

    just a thought, but they should have put a lazerbeak and a ravage with teh 3" too...

    maybe so they could lock into pegs on the base... dunno... just a cool thought.

    The Titanium? He was displayed both at SDCC and BotCon in those very colors, on an Autobot base. There was no info card anywhere, but everyone assumed that "yellow Side Swipe repaint = Sunstreaker". I never head that thing about him being supposed to be Decepticharge ever before. So I'd say you remember that wrong.

    Except Magnus as a White Prime actually has a decent history, whereas the closest you could have for Sunstreaker/Sideswipe is the OTFCC Exclusives

    Underwhelmed at the Reb Bumblebee and the yellow Sideswipe. How hard would a retool of a 3" Titanium be anyway? Or even a new mold?
