    Anyone know what scale those Mars Toys are? Would love to put that Pipes figure alongside my Lost Light crew.

    Clever re-use of the mold... but why pay 3rd Party prices for a figure that Hasbro/TT did a more than fine job with several times during the initial run of TF:p rime? Seems like a case of throwing good money after bad.

    They're basically re-imaginings of characters into beastmodes, from two art books.
    We're unsure if they have a back story or explanation of why they went beast mode.

    The books are still available.

    They're deluxe scale, so they'll fit MP and chug with minibots that are deluxe. The Maas Bumblebee is the same size as classics deluxe and MP Bumblebee.

    I'm interested in the Pipes, and there may be a G1 and IDW version.

    Are they? I hadn't heard that; that would be cool. I was pretty happy they had finished Combaticons and the out-of-no-where Sideswipe and Sunstreaker reveal.
    I was surprised that Unique Toys didn't send slides of their War in Palm Cerebros, Highbrow, Apeface and Snapdragon though.
    And that DX9 didn't have an update on WiP Soundwave.

    So with PX slides randomly appearing today, can we hope for DNA or SND slides tomorrow? :D

    For UM. Maybe they are just showcasing the armor and reusing the truck mold.

    I heard they originally had 4 slides detailing their very last combiner, made up of 4 F(X) Headmasters. Supposedly the combiner's name is the following: TFTM. As usual it got me thinking about what it could possibly stand for, just like how Storm Robin stands for Brain Storm but I think I finally got it, it stands for Thanks For The Memories.

    I hope that is the case, I'm not too sure I would like the armor if I had to either use the Optimus figure I already have or buy another one just for the armor.

    Not much to write home about is there?

    The powerglide is a nice surprise though from DX-9. Have to pick that up.

    I guess the MP Menasor wars are real. DX9 seems to be making a concerted effort to get more G1-accurate, but XTB's is cheap...conflicted. No interest in TransforMission as they're too IDW to fit an MP collection, but damn.
