    Great news Nevermore. I thought the Premium figures would be mass retail, or was really hoping they would anyway, and would follow Allspark Battles. I didn't expect a few Allspark figures to carry over. This will make it a lot easier to find. I have been looking at Entertainment Earth hoping to find a listing. I expect the others to follow soon. Strange that the Premium Deluxe figures are not in wave 9.

    Wow, Evac's getting bumped even farther down the line? Starting to feel bad for it. And I'm surprised, this will do away with the whole robot mode, unique packaging scheme that let you see what was so special about it so well

    I was hoping these would be mass retail. If would not have been for a board member I would have never gotton Ratchet or Megatron for Best Buy.

    Ah, cool. So this must be the "delay" in the release of Animated that Kickback was talking about-- the tacking-on of the Premium Series to the end of Allspark Power.

    And the repaint-heavy portion of the line has once again killed my interest in collecting newer stuff.

    Ah well, at least they'll be easier to get than previous Premium series figures. Here's hoping the Leader class figures are just as easy to get. . .

    Wait wait wait!!!! So most of these are not going to be released until April? So almost one year after the movie they are still going to be making movie line figures and repaints when they have a new tv series out and wont even have figures till after the series will be pretty much over? WOW that is serioulsy a bad idea. I think its cool with these "premium" figures and all, which should have been done this way in the first place, but in my opinion, the movie line needs to go. Couldnt produce the first time for demand and still cant.

    Enough with the endless repaints and out with the Animated toys already....

    Though i am curious to see how the Leader class premiums will look like, pictures have shown some promise.

    maybe i should sell off my movie stuff now and buy all these premiums when they came....i am bugged by the delay in animated, but understand it...if they put these out after animated, no one would want them. this way, they still feed the movie toy drive....and i doubt animated will be as big a hit as the movie...so i say go hasbro, its all understandable....

    With the complaints of animated toys, I think they've released the cartoon too soon. But it should work out great for us as it'll probably only be when the toys do get released that we'll finally have animated showing here.

    The movie line main characters and other real transforming things, ( here at least ), is selling faster than they can supply us from the factory.

    There's still plenty that did briefly arrive here, but I just never plain saw on the shelves because it sold too quickly. And now hasbro have turned on the repaint machine. I feel they've just underestimated the movie line far too much as the demand is still here for it for original painted characters.

    Now all I see is crappy slammers on the shelves and $50 g1 coloured jazz at ripp offs R us. News flash to hasbro, stop making those and output more original coloured deluxes as those sell.

    Oh yea, what's special about premium?

    Hmm. Easier to get the nice figs the better I say.
    Movie accurate repaints with some figures with added decals, mold changes. Most figs in the main line weren't movie accurate. EX: Starscream was tan instead of the silver in the movie.
