    Well that's a bummer but I figured it was going to happen when the Powermaster Optimus Prime and Sunstorm busts got cancelled. At least we got the Bumblebee one.

    It has not been a good year for non-transforming busts.

    I feel for the people who were looking forward to these, that has to be frustrating. I bought the Bumblebee one.

    I read the title on the index, and imagine something like two guys in Optimus and Megatron costumes robbing banks and getting arrested.

    The busts looked cool. Shame they got cancelled.

    second time in only a few months Diamond Select has cancelled G1 Transformers stuff...interesting. It probably means the preorders were very small and not enough to actually put the items into production

    they do that hoping people/consumers will pre-order they & buy them. then once they see no one took the bait,they cancel the items.

    I wonder why they cancel things like Transformer Banks, when they sell Stay Puffed Marshmallow Man and Slimer banks that sit on shelves and collect dust at TRUs.....

    That sucks. Diamond Select has really been dropping the ball here of late with the G1 love. And they were doing so well too. Blah. I wanted more Prime stuff!

    So I guess for every 5 announced only 1 will actually see the light of day?

    This is a bummer, I actually liked the Bank Busts...I got several of the Marvel & Star Wars Bank Busts already and was hoping to get these. Ah well, what a shame.
