    Yeah, for all the shots of toys we already know about, that one set actually revealed at this very show is suprisingly underrepresented in these photos...

    Is this the new version of "didn't think it was news"?

    Sorry, none of these pics are mine. By the time this comes to the north of the island where I am, I'm sure we'll have had a good look at that set already.

    This vlog gives a good look at what it's really like:


    And here's another vid of a fan walk-around:

    Went to a movie watching get-together today. We all brought some toys to share around and play with.
    One of the organizers brought these, sent to him from his contact at the expo going on in Tainan right now in the south of the island --- with strict instructions to not show of the box of the clones 2-pack.
    Didn't have time for many pics before the movie, but here's a few:

    I want the Cybertron and junkyard props. I just noticed in the one picture OP slashing the Infernocons is re-creating using Berserkers.

    Love Nitro more and more. SDCC Optimus looks good, even though there's still blue where there should be silver. Shame it had to be an exclusive and not the regular version.

    Not much new to see, but damn do I love when they do those dioramas, and I'm actually really digging that Orion Pax/FOC Prime two-pack.

    Of course, the clones are the star of the show (along with weird tie-in PMOP who should just be called Nucleon Quest Convoy already).

    Meh, that Kup mold should've been Crosshairs but I'm not surprised they made another Orion Pax.

    Basically it looks like this is the rest of TR's Wave 5 which should be hitting retail between now and August.

    So since I already have Blitzwing and Octone, my remaining check list consist of:

    Trypticon
    BBTS "Siege on Cybertron" (Maybe)
    Overlord
    Twin's Set (hopefully it's available at retail)
    Misfire
    TwinTwist
    Seaspray
