    Am I the only one that thinks it's a waste that Wheeljack's Arms Micron becomes a sword considering he already COMES with his swords? Shouldn't it turn inot a grenade or his blaster?

    I.E. werent the current line of FOC Generations supposed to be out in SPRING 2013 and now they are out next month???

    He was always scheduled for October. Some sites (or is it just BBTS) must have got their information mixed. That's why I maintain this list, which is always accurate (sometimes figures get pushed back and it's updated).

    Thank you very much for that list. I remember seeing when Lambor and the crew were announced that he was fall and soundwave and alert were winter originally then everyone (tf source, bbts) had wave and lambor listed for december. so i thought my wallet was screwed.

    I have a friend over seas that has seen sideswipe and said he does indeed have plastic tires.... so this toy is 80 odd dollars and they cheaped out on the tires? so we get an all plastic figure.... sheesh those cheap asses

    We get Sideswipe in October?! Hell yes! I really want that figure and I don't want to have to wait until December to get it. :D 

    Also, all those micron figures for the Voyager class are really starting to grow on me. God knows they look better than the crappy MechTech weapons we're getting from Hasbro...

    plastic/molded tires also don't crack & break over time. I like the rubber tires too. have a complete alt collection. but I fear for the day their tires start to break down.

    The tires are so thin on the figure that they would have likely cracked over time.

    Blame his high price on the terrible value of the US dollar. Had things been the way they were years ago where the yen to dollar ratio wasn't so horrible, he'd be like $45 to $60.

    ^^ this

    My US God Fire Convoy have cracked and broken tires all over Prime and Magnus, as well as the 3 brother cars. My Japanese release however is still intact for now. Main issue is that rubber in the past 20 years is a crying shame of what it once was. I fear for all my rubber tired transformers.

    well good point, but it is one i have rectified... every year i remove the tires and soak them in armorall, i have figures from the 80's that the tires are still like new (just make sure to let them dry, otherwise it may leave spots on plastic.)

    I'm glad to see fellow TF fans rationalizing his plastic tires. I can remember when "masterpieces" where 20 pounds of metal and rubber. Pretty soon they will be scout size with no paint apps, but it will be ok cause paint can cause cancer if ur exposed to it long enough. Btw, my 25 year old g1's have perfectly fine tires. I don't know wtf u guys are talking about.

    Eh, I can care less about metal and plastic tires. Just give me a killer design that hearkens back to the G1 cartoon and has great pose-ability. The 1st MP Prime design is weighty and full of metal and rubber and can't hardly stand for crap compared to the more plastic MP-10.
