    was watching HGTV the other day (I'm sick and there is nothing else on) and HGTV had gift idea shows. They had a gadgets and High tech one and they had a toy fair 2006 one. They had Cybertron mentioned in the action figures segment for all of about 30 seconds. The mentioned Transformers are still around. They showed Cyb Unicron, Excellion, and showed Primus. They said Primus was $15 though.. that misprice made me chuckle..

    whoops.. Wrong forum.. Move please. Damn flu is messing with my brain. Didn't realize this was News forum. Move to general please..

    Primus is considered a "Key item" for Hasbro this year, meaning he will be featured on many "review" shows and "gift idea" shows ... because Hasbro is trying hard to sell him.

    Hence why Primus got a "bonus" pack ... to increase his sales.

    My coworker at lunch talked about this. His son is getting into transformers and I gave him a few extra ones I didn't want. But he mentioned his son saw the transformers on hgtv and thought the Planet one was real cool.

    It appears that program came from the 2006 Toy Fair - from February, so Classics wasn't even on the menu at the time.
