    I'm so pleased we're finally getting a Blast Off to complete the Combaticons! I was so disappointed we didn't get him initially as the Combaticons were always my favorite combiner group.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Blast Off is formally announced at Toy Fair. Still wondering about that rumored Walgreens Wreck-Gar (hopefully a Groove retool). Maybe we will get two and in similar black box styling used for Grotusque and Arcee.

    We know Blast-Off comes on what looks to be a standard card already.

    To be honest now that we know that a second Hasbro Blast Off is coming I wuold REALLY like a second and improved Brawl, the CW one is awful for what I saw (I didn't get it because of how bad it was).

    Thanks for the correction. I generally shop online so did not know what the POTP cards look like. And i forgot about the original picture from the leak. The black box is a cool look so its a shame that Hasbro isn't trying to do more exclusives using that packaging format.

    For online only product it's great, but for retail shelves not so much. You can't see the what the product is and retailers prefer carded product for pegs.

    That is my plan for Tyrannus/King Starscream: dreadwind, blackwing, jet blast off and the rumored Needlenose

    I wasn't aware of a Needlenose rumor, but that's cool. I have the TFCC one, don't know if I'll replace him.
    Very glad to see Blast Off's packaging art. I really want to get my hands on him. I'll keep the jet one as cannon fodder background character lol.

    Yeah that is true. There is a part of me that wonders why Hasbro isn’t looking to Amazon and the Hasbro Toy Shop to sell exclusives. Then the packaging would be immaterial. but i’m Generally mystified by hasbro’s transformers relationship with Amazon.

    I would be thrilled to see a Ghost Starscream release out here. However, has a ghost version of Starscream ever been released outside Takara?

    Oh yeah. I heartily agree with that. A better Brawl is sorely needed. And I hope Blast Off has darker colors than what we see here.
    And potp Ratchet should be announced yesterday. Not in a year from now like this guy.

    Interested to know what hand/foot Blastoff will come with. I find it hard to believe they’d package him with the old style hands, which I’d prefer but at least I still have my CW Blastoff for that.

    IMHO Brawl is just fine. My waist while not crazy secure is just fine. Plus I kinda like the mold.

    I’d MUCH prefer a less bedazzled Swindle.

    Fair enough but I just don’t need three Fireflys in different colors.

    Absoluetly excited about this confirmation. Most definitely getting Blast Off again.

    Just beware that symbol placement on the forward portion of the shuttle implies that the INTENDED look is the UW Blast Off look rather than the Shuttler look. Prepare to crack out your purple paint just in case.

    I can't wait for the full reveal of the studio series any longer, these leaks are killing me!

    When is Toy Fair?
