    I am beyond excited for this TF Prime line to finally debut in full next year. When do you all think we will get the next previews of upcoming figures? Toy Fair?

    Probably after these first edition figures are done and we get the straight up retail versions of this first wave :lol 

    Or at least that's what I thought I heard about the TFP figure releases.

    Skyquake, 'the powerful Decepticon warrior who goes down quicker than Huggy Bear in The Shining', will be mine. It looks brutal.

    Also, yes, can not wait for Airachnid, Knock Out and Breakdown to appear.

    Added that the only others I'll definitely get are Arcee and the Vehicon, the Prime line looks as though it'll be Con-heavy for my tastes. I guess that's a reflection on my enjoyment of the show.

    Funny that we've seen nothing of Ratchet so far (but people aren't as fervent as they were regarding Soundwave or Dino from DOTM).

    Yeah. We have confirmation of Ratchet getting a deluxe toy, but we've seen no images of even prototypes, like we have of Skyquake, Voyager Starscream, and Knock Out. And that's still more than we have on Airachnid and Breakdown.

    Not that I'm worried in the least, though; the show's cast is still small enough that I have faith we will get every onscreen character so far. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if we got a repaint/retool of one of the Cliffjumper molds as Tailgate, since they use the same character model.

    I think they're in 1st Edition Wave 1.5, along with Cliffjumper. Don't quote me on that, though.

    Man, I can't wait for that Skyquake.


    I didn't know that Antonio Fargas was in The Shining...

    I told you not to quote me on that! :D 

    No problem. I could easily be incorrect, but I think that's the case.

    So is deluxe Arcee, Vehicon, Zombie CJ and Starscream only available in the "First Edition" so far and not in the follow-up (retooled), R.I.D. main line? I know BB and CJ are getting updated molds, but I'm unclear if the others are going to see another release.

    There's rumors about an Arcee retool/remold being released in the main line, but nothing confirmed. Probably not going to be seeing another Terrorcon CJ either. Vehicons, I'd be willing to bet will be in future waves, possibly the flight-mode or miner variants. Starscream's getting a Voyager in the main line, but nothing's been said about a future deluxe release.

    I figured the Terrorcon CJ was a one shot deal, but hopefully we'll get some more Arcee and Vehicon action. We definitely need at least the flight-mode Vehicons. The miner Vehicons would be just a nice bonus.

    According to THIS thread the vehicon and Terror-Cliff will be wave 2 of the first edition.

    I didn't think it was in 1.5.

    I'm ready for Wheeljack and Soundwave. I can live without any more deluxes once I have those.

    Airachnid, IMO, would have a sacrificed alt. mode to achieve an amazing robot mode. So I'm not overly excited about her.

    Didn't they make it easier for her? I mean, she is a helicopter. So the rotor can turn into legs (4 rotor maybe split into 2 each, making 8 legs)

    But because she's so slim, I'm worried she'll end up with a lot of kibble, like Arcee did.
