    Hi guys,

    please take this as a grain of salt since I'm trying to find confirmation of this,

    I recently got a solicitations from my supplier regarding transformers stuff as usual, but there's two things spark my interest greatly:
    - TRA PRIME DELUXE AST (BOB) : the image given is all FE figures, which consist of
    2x Arcee
    3x Cliffjumper
    3x Vehicon
    to be released May 28th
    - TRA MOVIE ALL STAR DELUXE ASST: Only Que with the pics without any details on the case composition, it says there's 8 items in, but I refuse to believe there's only Que in it
    to be released May 21st

    this maybe a asia only listing :p 

    Update: Just got confirmation that the Movie Trilogy only consist of one figure: Que in a case of 8

    Dear Primus I hope this is true. I'd love to see these on the market again.

    It might actually be possible, albeit a bit early for such releases, as stores typically will start their summer movie toy resets around that time.

    But the Movie stuff is just a bit off to me, I didn't think we got any word about them trying to get those toys out to us as well.

    Slightly off topic, but also related; Someone in another tread reported finding FE figures at TJ Maxx/Marshals in the US, they couldn't confirm with pics though.

    I really doubt such a big decision would be made so quickly and then sent to retailers in under a week.

    I want the mainline Vehicon more than the FE but would still buy the latter at a reasonable price. And I really want a mainline DOTM Soundwave. So I'll be interested to find out if any more comes of this.

    Oh my God I will buy Cliffjumper so hard if this is true. And Arcee and Wheeljack/Q, but less so than Cliff.

    If you're talking about the Official Ross/TJMaxx/Marshalls thread, the guy only found the Bumblebee blaster, no actual transforming figures. But it does give hope, much like these listings do. :p 

    It's not really a week though. The figures were effectively cancelled back in March or April, right? Could a couple of months be enough time to get something figured out?

    EDIT: Found the thread, Hasbro sent out the message that the FE figures were cancelled back at the start of February.

    If this is true, then we're getting 3 Vehicons per case.

    Three of the inferior FE mold and not the better looking PRID figure.

    However, I personally may buy one or two. While it doesn't look as good, having a few of both car vehicons would provide variety and justify army building to a bit, where not all of them look the exact same.

    Also; not a SINGLE Bumblebee, the ONE time people might actually want him.

    I wouldn't get all excited just yet. If you read between the lines at Botcon (yes, I was there) it appears as though they are going to try to get them to us, but there are no guarantees of this. I believe they are genuinely trying, but it may prove to not be that simple.

    I got that, but I'm just wondering what were their exact words? The live panel feed says getting more FE figures out there was a top priority for them, so I'm just wondering if it's possible they've been trying to figure out how to get them out since February or at least some time before Botcon?

    Interesting. Looking forward to seeing how/if this develops.
