    So far, we've seen alot of the toys for Prime, though I couldnt help but notice that we're getting guys like Wheeljack and Skyquake before guys like Ratchet and Breakdown. Is that so we get toys of guys we wont see again anytime soon before guys who will be around for a while or what?

    This is exactly what I thought when I saw Skyquake.

    Well given that so far we've seen less than 20 bots chances are they're all in development at the same time and all at different stages. You'll probably find they're working on thier favorites first.

    Never thought about that but it's a good question. Or the other are made and going to be released as well be we just haven't been shown them yet?

    I was pretty disappointed when they announced Skyquake was getting a voyager before Megatron. :(

    Well Megatron is a prominent character. Skyquak isnt. So by giving us Skyquake first, we're guaranteed a toy of him. and since its MEGATRON, theres a guarantee of him! works out perfectly that way. This makes me a little worried about Airachnid, as with her, it could go either way. She could be like any other Con, gettin a toy. Or she could be like the Animated Constructicons... hoping that she doesnt get screwed over...

    Since all the characters who haven't gotten revealed toys are all major characters such as Megatron, which Torque points out, having the one-shot characters get toys first not only expands the roster of figures to get early on but also might shut up those who would complain latter on about wanting a character who only showed up for one or two episodes, like Skyquake.

    Plus, we still don't know the general order for a good deal of the line's size class waves, so Megatron might still be coming early, or even reserved for the Leader class, which would rock.

    I wasn't. I love Skyquake! And as others have said, a Voyager Megatron is pretty much guaranteed.

    Yeah, I'd say we will see EVERY bot in the show turn up as toys. There are so few at this point that they need to make toys to fill the shelves, so I'm counting on seeing them all eventually!

    I'm super excited about Skyquake, wheeljack, and I didn't think I would be after seeing the concept art, but Soundwave has grown on me. Plus they are really nailing the toys! I can't believe what they are pulling off design-wise!

    I don't mind Skyquake, although I don't get why he had a sword in the proto pics and not his mini-gun, but that doesn't keep me from wanting a Megatron NAOW! :D

    I might get Prime and Arcee, it will depend on reviews. I was going to get Starscream, but his jet mode looks horrible, who ever designed him didn't put enough effort into the job.

    You could always get the voyager. Personally I don't care if he has a crappy jet mode. He more than makes up for it in robot mode based on what I've seen.

    When's the last time that Megatron didn't get a Voyager class in any line? I'm glad they're releasing the more obscure characters first. I'd rather have these then the typical bots and cons anyway.

    The only thing I was disappointed with is how Skyquake didn't get his gatling gun. C'mon!

    And I honestly hope Megatron reformats into Galvatron or something so he can have a chance of having an earth vehicle mode. I don't like cybertronian modes.

    they are spacing them out, they want to do everything but they don't want to flood the market early on with just the main cast and leaving the other waves just full of repaints and characters that are barely on the show/non-show characters. we'll get them all eventually

    The voyager is way more show accurate. I don't see any good reason to get that crappy deluxe now that we know the voyager is coming.

    Well I'm a bit OCD when it comes to scale and Starscream's pretty tall for a deluxe while still being really skinny like in the show. I know it's not a big deal for some people but for me it makes the deluxe more desirable.

    Also if I don't get him then I'll go through the entire preview line with no one for my army of six to fight except for three Vehicons.

    I just can't get over how bad the triple missile rack and that dookie cone between his legs looks on the deluxe. Also his hands don't look stabby enough. I'm looking forward to the voyager though.

    Who knows. I might change my mind and decide to get the voyager. However I'd need to see a colored version.

    Are there any upcoming events where they could show one?
