    Which character would the red Mirage mold be? Turbo, another Go-Bots character perhaps?

    Premium Cliffjumper, eh?

    The frugal side of me hopes he doesn't have a new head.

    Thanks for the move and credit, Tim :) 

    Interestingly, Walky said on his blog that these special edition things were made for Australia. Well, since he knows the deco artist who made the decos for these toys, and Australia is so far the only country that these have been semi-officially semi-confirmed to be sold at retail...

    Shame on you, Cliffy needs a new head.:lol 


    Anyway I'll pick up a red Mirage, but will only get Cliffy if he has a new head. I'm guessing that Nemesis Prime would be a repaint of that godawful Prime mold from the first wave, which would mean an easy pass for me, ah well.

    Part of me is jumping for joy but the other part is banging his head because these are listed at $15 for being repaints.

    Remember, this isn't confirmed yet, so don't get angry if say, the line doesn't do well and wave 2 is cancelled or something.

    They also probably don't have as big as a run as normal mass release figures.

    The first wave is pretty much a must buy except for prime.

    As for this new wave, dude I'll already have bought 3 different mirages if you count dragstrip. Not really interested until we know more later on.

    from the post though it sounds like hasbro is just in a concept stage right now. But if their just repaints the box art is going to consume more time then a new paint scheme.

    Yeah I'm really loving their "premium" way of thinking.

    "They're packaged in a kick ass black box!"

    I'm really hoping that they include other things to make up for the $5 hike in price.

    Cliffjumper will be the only one of these I will get out of both waves. That's only if they make it worth it and make some changes.

    Since in the UK Universe deluxes are £13 I don't think it's not that bad to have nicer packaging with keep value and good paint apps, if it has the same amount of quality control as Cybertron did I'll be happy.

    could this be how the new Universe Starscream will be packaged? Just a thought.

    Red Mirage sounds interesting and I may get Cliffjumper if he is a retool. I want to see pics of Nemesis before I decide on him, though since I'm a sucker for Nemesis repaints, I'm sure I'll get it. lol
