    Straight outta nowhere. It was a surprise reveal during the panel, went on sale as soon as they showed it, and sold out in 2-3 hours. They did say it would be at general retail in about a month, same as Arcee, so most likely at TRU.

    There\'s a lot of fantastic stuff here, and I don\'t wanna be a party pooper, but is anyone else kinda dissapointed that all the pretenders are the same? The design of the shells looks great, but they all seem to transform identicially. And the matrix gimmick just doesn\'t interest me the same way a face does.

    I\'ll definitely get one or two but it\'s hard to get interested in them as a whole.

    Yeah, this.

    You definitely missed the above quoted post. He's easy and cheap to get.

    Not if you use him as a hand for a combiner.

    Yes, but that's a hand, not a weapon mode. So the point still stands. > _ >

    Very much digging the Pretenders, which is good, since they are my only planned purchases at this time. The Primemasters themselves are mixed, I would have preferred if they all looked like the inner robots of their Pretenders. Some are closer than others -- Submarauder is a very different color scheme, although frankly his G1 scheme is pretty insane. Given the color limitations, Metalhawk and Landmine look good, we know Skullgrin looks good, and Cloudburst looks pretty good as well (his chest is the wrong color, but the red and charcoal scheme is correct).

    Yeah, the Metalhawk shell is totally being hijacked by Professor Go so TR Metalhawk can have his shell.

    And why didn't Hasbro call "Rodimus Unicronus" what he really is: Shattered Glass Rodimus Prime?

    I like how they tried to replicate his cyber planet key symbol on the underside of his titan master form.

    "Shrapnel was going for $50 on the secondary markets. "

    Hasbro could make that excuse for every transformer as a reason to be lazy. They did a bad ass job with potp windcharger, why not just ore-release the cw mold? Oh yeah because it sucks and needed an update.

    If people wanted the skrapnel mold so bad for cheap just buy cw chopshop.

    Seriously put all 3 of the insecticons together
    and Skrapnel sticks out like a sore thumb as being the weakest link. Potp had the opportunity to remidy this and they screwed the pooch big time.

    People don't want molds, they want characters. Chop Shop is a nobody, Shrapnel is a memorable character.

    You bring up a good point. Skrapnel/shrapnel IS a memorable character so give him the credit he deserves and update that lame ass mold

    We got versions of G1 Cliffjumper. Hasbro doesn't care about giving us proper versions of Cliffjumper.

    ...additional characters, yes, but i’d *so* be down for the rest of the deluxe insecticons...

    ...unless there’s a dramatic improvement introduced in a new mold, though, i have no need for version VII of the same old character who’s already seen an exemplary modern interpretation...

    ...that said, until this morning i hadn’t seen hasbro’s shrapnel on the secondary market for less than ursurous prices, so last year i bought the significantly-cheaper takara adventure edition instead: i’ll probably pick up hasbro’s reissue in futile pursuit of a matching set of insecticons and relegate one of them to clone duty...

    A better question: Is he an Autobot or Decepticon? The toy at NYCC had purple Autobot symbols...but the official renders have Decepticon symbols. So...which is it?

    As far as being Shattered Glass...he's only Shattered Glass in so much as he looks like a Shattered Glass character. Most likely, the fiction over why he is like this has nothing to do with being from an alternate universe.
