    There is an update on these at the latest Chinese show. No colour shots yet, but there is a chance that they could be prepainted given that Trumpeter has done prepainted kits before.

    What was the show called?

    I don't even need pics, just confirmation they're still happening. A release date also wouldn't hurt.

    I'm really interested in the characters that don't exist in a toy or figure form already like that Soundwave.

    On a side note, @SPLIT LIP is going to sleep good tonight.

    Hell yeah to Chonkwave and Optimus. That's a good sign these are still progressing.

    I'm very happy! :D

    I honestly can't even tell if these are new pics or not. Same gray models, same lack of price or release date or color/decal info, same background, same display case... I wanna believe, but I would really have liked to see some progress towards them feeling like an actual release.

    As of now I'm thinking of getting OP and Blitzwing only, unless SS decides to reveal a voyager Blitzwing.

    Cool.
    It\'d be great if a certain one from the collection displayed transformed.

    ...
    Oh well.
    They all still look sweet.

    Oh you're right! I guess they were just 2D cutouts last time. That's good! And I like the small size of these. I wonder if they'll do the gundam thing of having different scales of the same characters?

    At the very least there's two Bumblebees, a small one the same size as the others, and a larger, more articulated and detailed one.

    Also, if you compare the Shatter from before to the one now, the detail has been much more refined:

    So they're still developing them.

    I'd almost be pissed because I'd want Bandai to make literally everyone from everything but it'd never happen.

    While Trumpeter is certainly good when it comes to scale military models, I still think that they have an uphill battle to climb. Bandai, Koto and Flame Toys have set a high standard for me and I feel these might end up more disappointing than anything else. The mecha plamo field is tough to get into because the big players in it have invested so much engineering and technique into it. Still, I can't wait for a review. Hopefully they're good so I'll pick up a few.

    Okay I just wanted to say that I find it crazy how a new line up of Transformers figures shows initially more Decepticons than Autobots. That’s just wild to me. Anyway whatever.
