    Hey all,

    We just got word of Premium Bumblebee, Jazz, and Barricade from Hasbro, which you can find here:

    http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HT81057K two of the new Bumblebee, 1 each of the other guys. Also, repacks.

    The good news: Bumblebee has that nifty new helmet. The bad news: Hasbro's unique lighting for their photos makes everything look better, so it's not as easy to see what the improvements are on the alt modes, for example.

    Enjoy! We're expecting a March ETA date, and new orders are of course welcome.

    I still think the original shiny plastic color on Jazz is closer than bright chrome metallic.

    Looks like another mass release for the Premium series. This portends well for the availability of Premium Prime and Megatron.

    Can't really see much difference in Barricade in that pic. What are his new paint apps supposed to be? And BB gets a mask! cool!

    On a side note, I just saw the Indiana Jones Adventure Heroes wave 1 set on there. Cool! Can't wait to get those.

    Nuts to Stealth BB, I'll have that one instead. :D  Out of interest, what's changed on Barricade? I'm hoping Prime & Megs will get a mass release.

    Edit: Oops, didn't realise I double-posted, sorry. ;)

    I think Barricade has a 911 logo and tinted windows, Frenzy looks silvery

    I'm al over Jazz and BB, maybe Prime and Megs, but I'll wait

    WHY didn't they just make them like this in the first place? Oh well.

    Will pick up all 3. I really dig the battlemask on Bumblebee, looks way better than his regular head.

    Are Brawl and Bonecrusher getting the premium treatment?

    Leader Class Brawl is already perfection in my mind.

    Wow, they look really nice from what I can see. I will be getting all 3, along with Premium Prime and Megs.

    IMO, a Premium Brawl would need remoulding to sort those shoulder joints out.

    There are nice, HUGE pictures of the already seen Premium figures in the latest issue of Tomart's, and Barricade actually has more paint apps on his head to go with his additional logos in car-mode. I believe he now has bronze or grey paint on his crest and flanking the face. Can't be sure since I left my copy of the magazine in my brother's car. It seemed more movie-accurate...

    Edit: Kind of miffed Premium BB has his battle-mask head and not the un-masked head with an entirely silver face. Guess I'll have to buy the Capture of Bumblebee pack and hope the yellow head from that figure matches up on this figure.

    So premium means somewhat more movie accurate or what? :/
