    Sorry if this has been asked before..

    1. Does TRU plan to have any more classic exclusives?? I know Soundwave just came out , I'm hoping they get another great figure out..
    2. Can we expect to see any showing of NEW classics at Toy Fair this year? If so is there any spoiler pics on here or on the net?
    3. Is there a future lineup of classics somewhere ??

    Thanks..

    It looks like TRU is not going to have any exclusives or any new figures in general until after the movie. The only new set thats going to be released is that WAL-MART exclusive Devastator set. But I don't consider that a truly new set since its just a re-paint.

    1. No
    2. No
    3. No

    Classics ends with wave three, and there has been no word yet (and likely won't be until Botcon) whether or not the line will come back at any point.

    Just check back here regularly, if a date is announced officially, or people begin finding them, you'll see it here on the news page.

    For the lack of a reissue, you can blame the Chinese knockoff-makers for putting out more new low-quality bootleg constructicons every twenty minutes, and Takara and/or Hasbro for letting that stop them from reissuing their own. (or worn out molds, or both)

    Aside from maybe an odd repaint or two, I'd be surprised if we see any "new" classics until next year.

    They'd damn well better be obscure characters that nobody cares about like the Throttlebots or generic Seekers, cause I am not dropping $300 to get Thundercracker. And I will call shenanigans on Hasbro in a heartbeat if they try to make TC a convention exclusive.

    I've seen SO many of those it makes me sick. I want to get a nice new Dev but I don't want to buy some lame ass rip off. Is there a reason that there are so many knock offs floating around?

    I'd prefer an updated one myself( not counting Wal-mart version), but I guess that's just me.:lol

    You're saying that you would never want to see a Devastator reissue? Never?
