    Cyclones? You mean Cyclonus? I wonder if its a '86 movie repaint for the 3 pack, using the Classics and Universe molds. :D  Someone posted rumors about a possible 3 pack with HotRod a while ago.

    If Cyclonus and Galvatron are in correct all-purple colors and Hot Rod has been made more G1... I'll buy it up. I'm a sucker for those three characters (despite Galvatron's mold...)

    Well, it's about time Target had an exclusive worth buying again. Definitely sounds like an '86 movie themed set with Classics Rodimus, Universe Galvatron and Universe Cyclonus.

    It sure would be great if the figures got repainted for this release. And maybe the Galvatron isn't Universe Galvatron but a remold of another figure... but that's probably a pipe dream.

    As for the Seacons, I guess that explains the picture we saw a while back. I wonder if "Hasbro LTD ver" means they'll be a HTS exclusive, or just a store exclusive where the store isn't specified yet? They sure seem to be a natural fit for the TRU Commemorative Series.

    If that set's indeed true, it's an easy buy. Then I can have both Galvatrons in my collection, plus another Cyclonus to create a trio of evil jets. (And another Hot Rod).

    Protoman won't be happy if this comes out though - it means that's another 2-3 of the same set he has to buy :p

    before you guys dismiss this as just another rumor, I actually already got the wholesale price that I'm not allowed to reveal yet, sorry about that.

    the ball park price would be 60-70usd, but since this is from a HK Supplier (wit htheir tendency to jack up any exclusive price), I wouldn't be surprised if the price for US retail would be 'just' 50 Usd

    What I find more interesting that the timing of this release; provided that Protector add on will indeed be released within this year

    I'm wondering if 'limited' in the case of the Seacons means HTS, and the rest being available at retail in Asia, along the lines of some previous exclusives.





    IIRC, in Asia Hasbro TFs often cost more than in the US.

    Well, a 3-pack of Deluxes would probably be what - 30-40 USD?

    I'm intrigued by this news though very much, as it lines up with stuff we've heard before.

    Ah, if it is the Classics Rodimus mold then all those people currently paying a SHITLOAD of money trying to get hold of one in time for the FP armour will have some serious egg on their faces. I saw a Henkei rodimus go for over £80 on eBay the other day!!! That is fucking retarded.

    Now come on Hasbro, re-release Classics Ultra Magnus... :(

    .......and maybe a new deco for Skywarp too :) 

    If Generations is really earmarked to be an ongoing line during the movie, (i think) it may be justified.

    W/regard to Rodimus though, even if Hasbro aren't going to re-release it, albeit with a different deco, i don't think anybody paying attention could really feel hard done by if Henkei Rodimus gets re-released. Plenty of precedent for such an event.



    Kind of difficult to blame transportation costs on the price of toys when customers live fairly close to where they're produced.

    For a long time now, i've thought that international markets effectively bare the cost when American discount chains refuse to pay more than a certain price for stock.

    Damn, if this is true (second time we have heard the rumor now), and IF cyclonus is a repaint, I am gonna have a fair amount of Galvatrons to hauk. Maybe a couple rodimus too, but those shouldn't be as much of a problem. If true, this just adds to a load of nice stuff coming down the pike.

    Awesome news. A lot of different rumours we've heard early in the year are still consistently coming true.
