    I don't know whether we got this already, but I recently informed the release date of this most anticipated FP Item of this year (at least for me :D )

    CA-03 Stormshred (Tentative end May early June)
    CA-04 Thunderbomb (Tentative end June early Jul)
    CA-05 Backfire (Tentative end Jul early Aug)

    I don't think I'll be getting this anyhow (I'm pretty luke warm on my FP Springer), but we haven't seen photos of final product yet have we?

    That seems surprisingly soon.

    Their price is something I wonder about as well-given that Warbot on BBTS ran us 90, and the Scout-esque Crossfire guys (and their repaints) go for 45-55. I'd wager about 70 buck a pop. I'm hoping for less, but dont think it would be lower than 60. =/

    Hopefully they are in the same range as CA-01 and CA-02, but who knows since they are new molds. I will be all over these as soon as preorders go up, but with about every new mold from FP, I expect slight delays....though I never anticipate disapointment. Don't care when they get here, as long as they get here at some point.

    Was hoping these would be sooner and I could add them to my POL. Will probably ship before they arrive.

    I was initially disappointed about the staggered release but you're right, that will make it easier.

    I wonder if anyone will do an upgrade kit for more G1 heads for these guys? I love how FP puts their own spin on things, but I'm also a G1 accuracy nut and I want the football faceguard/knight's face cover look on not-Bombshell

    We've known these dates ever since they were formally announced, BTW. They're right there on FP's main page.

    Warcry/Flameblast missed their mark by two weeks (unless the pre-orders going up the last day of March still counts), so we'll see what the drift on the other three winds up looking like.

    Even better. Time to start planning the budget. Now if we could only get solid release times and solid prices for the TFCC Not-Devs I could budget for most of the rest of the year.

    Just hoping for no surprises the rest of the year.....though Im sure there will be, Transformers are rollin too tough right now.

    Hope they give us colored pictures. And I hope they don't mess up coloring them. I want them to look like that photoshpped pic someone made on here.

    Also... I'm sure there is going to be some delays though..
