    Next up in the ever popular Alternity Series: A-03 Bumblebee - Suzuki Swift Sport Edition and A-03 Red Bumblebee (Cliffjumper) Version. This 1:32 scale figure features both diecast and plastic parts and the two color schemes of Champion Yellow and Red Pearl bring both Bumblebee and Red Bumblebee (Cliffjumper) to life.

    3) Encore #19 Big Mission set #3 and Disney Label Donald Duck
    ===============================================================
    The ever popular Encore series continues with Encore #19, Cassettes Big Mission set #3! This set includes some very popular cassettes: Frenzy, Rumble, Laserbeak and Overkill! Three of the four cassettes in this set have never been reissued before, so a great set overall. Also available for preorder and scheduled for a November 2009 release is the next in the Disney Label Series: Donald Duck! It appears he changes from a VW Bug to Donald and back. The Disney Label Mickey Mouse was a big hit and Donald should deliver up to the same level of expectations! Furthermore his VW bug is not just reminiscent of Herbie, but everyone's favorite G1 Minibot Bumblebee as well!

A great custom piece, preorder yours today and also take advantage of TFsource Combo pricing and order 2 or more and save!

    ===============================================================
    Another great exclusive custom set! The TAW custom sword set comes in 3 different variations of color, and each stands an impressive 16" in length, from hilt to tip of the sword! Each also splits into two different weapons, one a short sword the other a shield, that can be combined to form the master sword. These customs are meant for Classics Convoy, Ultra Magnus and Nemesis Prime, and although expensive are impressive to behold. Preorder up now, estimated release date is this month but are not yet released.

    I'm not sure if Curt's got them instock yet or not. You'll have to check the site for the current instock items.

    Dang, was hoping that they'd have the Superion appendage set in-stock and a pre-order up for Encore #19/Cassette Mission #3.

    EDIT - They do have Encore #19 for pre-order, just not mentioned in the newsletter. Surprised that Cassette Mission #3 is $4 more expensive than #2.

    I'm tempted to pre-order MP-Grimlock but, between the cost and getting burned with buying the suckfest that was MP Megatron, I'm just not sure I want to pull the trigger on another MP figure right now.

    that D.I.A. Commander set is really tempting me. Especially since I don't have any of the other commander sets.
