    When do these release?

    Also I'm hoping they do a second wave of these: A movie accurate repaint of HFTD Voyager The Fallen is a must along with a new Sentinel Prime and the other two Dinobots with mini Drift and Crosshairs.

    Even though I think his toy is shit, Lockdown deserves a premium paintjob version. The Hasbro one is actually more accurate overall than the Takara version. The only thing the Takara version does better is the green eyes and less paint on the forearms. Hasbro got everything else right since his body is the color of the car and not black like Takara's.

    A premium lockdown should have the orange paint on the biceps and red paint on the backs of his shins to simulate where the Lamborghini's tail light end up in robot form. Also, they should retool his forearm to have a fold-out hook.

    Other figures that deserve more paint include: DOTM voyager megatron, DOTM Soundwave deluxe, AOE scout steeljaw, rotf sideways, AOE drift (similarly to Hasbro platinum but with black car mode), and wheelie.

    Rotf leader megatron just needs a whole goddamn overhaul. There is a way they could retool his current cannon arm to make it more accurate and add some articulation. And he'd need a new head too. And gangly arm. They'd need to retool that too. Yeah I know third party stuff exists, but none of those bozos engineered their stuff to actually lock in to the pre-existing connection ports on the toy. Idiots.

    I wouldn't mind a premium Jetfire, since he's only ever come in a two pack that's dang expensive.
    Sentinel definitely needs some love, voyager or leader, both had terrible paint application!

    I also wish they were doing the pinstripes on the leader Optimus, but he's still an amazing figure!

    The two-pack leader Jetfire is the premium version.

    I'm waiting for Takara to maybe, hopefully, eventually release that Jetfire armor 2007 voyager optimus 2-pack they had planned back in 2010.

    That is definitely not going to happen from HasTak at this point. The only chance now is from third parties like TF Dream Factory and 4Ever (the latter is only DMK-type figures).

    God dammit. I don't do much collecting of TF figures but I need Both Optimus', Ironhide, Ratchet, Soundwave and Starscream.

    They'd complete my movie display in the man cave I plan to build.

    I was so disappointed Hasbro didn't do a Platinum Edition box set for Galvatron, Lockdown and Stinger with better paint jobs. Or High Octane Bumblebee.

    The Autobots United set and the Breakout Battle showed how good the mounds could actually look with extra attention to detail. Though why they kept the same mid blue for Drift instead of the accurate midnight blue/almost black is still a mystery.

    I've preordered the two Dinobots mostly because they come with the mini-figures. Tempted by Megatron and Starscream…

    Here is what I want to see:
    AOE Traxes,  AOE Junkheaps, AOE Two-Head, AOE Bosses, DOTM Crowbar, AOE Oreobot, DOTM leadfoot (I want to see a repaint of the mechtech figure), New characters (It doesn\'t matter if they are repaints or not.).

    I'm still shocked that we never got a Leader Class Blackout. To me, he is THE Transformer of the movie franchise more so than BumbleBee or Optimus because he is the first one we encounter and his introduction gives off a strong Spielbergian vibe of wonder and awe. He sets the tone of what's to come.

    My dream Leader Blackout would be:

    -the usual Leader Class ROTF/DOTM scale robot mode height (vehicle will be out out scale).
    -lights and sounds.
    -flip out chest cannon.
    -electronic holodriver projection (like the face projection tech used on the Tron Legacy figures).
    -opening/closing mouthplate armor on the head.
    -tail rotor becomes handheld roto blade weapon for robot.
    -mini skorponok that transforms into his engine and can be launched from his back like a spring missile.

    [REMOLD] ROTF Grindor with battle-damage tear-apart robot mode head.
    -mini stalker skorponok repaint that transforms into his engine and can be launched from his back like a spring missile.

    That would be amazing! An instant purchase for me. (I don't know what it is, but I've always really loved Blackout's design.)

    As far as the actual figures, some of them definitely pique my interest. If I didn't already have a Leader Prime (the one with the hooks), I'd definitely get him, but right now I don't need two almost identical Optimus Prime's, and I don't want to replace the one I have. I really wish Starscream had been the Leader version, so he's a pass for me. I was always bummed I missed out on Human Alliance Soundwave, so I'll be keeping an eye on him. I'd love to see them add Leadfoot, as he'd be an instant pre-order for me, but otherwise I'll just keep an eye on these. Who knows, maybe I'll finally add a Soundwave to my collection. :D

    Nothing but slight remolds and repaints.
