    So Lugnut is a repaint of 'The Fallen'? Wasn't expecting that. The mold does look better in those colours though.

    Axor is a little disappointing. I love the idea of the homage, and I love that they went to the trouble of a new head and weapon, but the colours kinda clash. It's a pity he doesn't look as awesome as Lockdown.

    As far as we know, that is not Lugnut, but rather a very oddly colored Fallen. His sign says "The Fallen ".

    I really hope that Fallen redeco isn't Lugnut like you've said...ANYONE is a better and more fitting mold than The Fallen.

    I'm hoping they name it like Vector Prime or something.

    Look at the picture with all of them. You can clearly see it marked as "The Fallen."

    Personally, I hope this is just a prototype done to show off the changes and they actually use movie accurate colors of red and black on the final release. Can anyone see what the release date is?

    naturally, I'm just guessing. I never got that mold, did he have that staff accessory before?

    So does Hasbro have some plans to show off some new stuff on Saturday or is that it? I know it's a silly question but I haven't ever made it to Bot Con before so I wasn't sure if they weren't spacing the stuff out or something.

    I like Dirge, but Thrust's white face just looks odd.

    Hasbro will have their panel on Saturday. Usually after the show they switch out or add new toys into the display cases. Patience young grasshopper!

    LOL now means you should be able to go out and find them which is not the case. Also can mean now as in NOW within the distribution cycle.

    Soundwave looks well made. WFC Megatron, I'm still not sold on that figure. And the light-coloured plastic they used on that figure doesn't help its case.

    Well, to be honest, in some places it is available NOW. It just isn't everyone yet.

    I like the new colors on the Fallen. I can't wait for the WFC Soundwave and Megatron.

    Really Hasbro? I go through all the trouble of making a custom Leader-sized Fallen, and make him a staff, and then you go and do a slight remold of the Voyager class and give him a staff?

    WTF? Why can't they do this stuff in the first place?!?

    That being said, I'll probably buy him just to switch out the hands.

    WfC Megatron and Soundwave look good. Sidearm Sideswipe looks better every time I see it.
