Outside of that....
idk i think the majority is pretty sweet.

it sucks the better FOC Bruticus is a SDCC exclusive but the box art and set is awesome looking.

and that terrorcon CJ packaging and figure are just as sweet.

i think the weakest reveals for me were Prime Dead End and Arachnid, that big piece of the cockpit behind her head is meh, hope it can go down more.

also club exclusives are pretty sweet.

Didn't seem like there was a whole lot mentioned in general about Prime. Nothing to indicate if it's still doing well or if it may be heading toward another eventual premature ending.

I had hoped we would at least hear more in terms of news of new Prime figures coming, but everything seemed to be what we already knew was coming.

The MP-10 news and the SDCC exclusives were the only thing I really found exciting, otherwise it was yet another letdown for me.

There was a lot of news about FoC figs, fireflight, soundblaster, sideswipe, ultra magnus. Seeing the data discs was very cool and ravage is the best of them.

In Prime there was a clip with shockwave, so hopefully we get a prime shockwave fig.

FOC Shocky is neat. That little Bot Shots red Ironhide seems cool. Neither are my thing, though. Stateside MP-10 will be a buy. Not feeling much else from the show, honestly.

Hope your grandma has nothing but the best prospects, OP83.

Every figure they showed in the Hasbro and TFCC panels looked better than anything that was in this years Box Set.


The subscription service scares me, because I think its got to be over $400 and possibly $500 and there is no more a la carte, unless you are willing to pay a premium for the same figures.

I think we'll be doing plenty of subscription divvying.

I know I plan on subscribing for like 2 figures and taking at-cost "pre-orders" from any takers for the remaining 4 that I don't want.

I'm still like... man, *six* figures? Do they really have enough good ideas to do six figures every year, in addition to Club Exclusive and conventions sets?

Is there any news about FoC Dinobots toys? I'd be happy to see them if they're making one.

about 20 new figs a year from TFCC, that is a lot. I hope they keep it to current lines and avoid the Unicron Trilogy figs.
