    I got all excited that real pictures were right around the corner until I realized the grey parts are probably not painted yet (meaning this is still a prototype).

    HA Soundwave might be the first HA I'm buying, besides the basic HA figures of course *Hugs Whirl and Tailpipe* all these guys are being bought on sight.

    Whats that Optimus Prime too? Please tell me Hasbro is releasing that instead of leaving us with that garbage Ultimate Prime figure.

    From that tiny picture, I am glad I have that pre-ordered.

    Damn. Now I might need to pick up Deluxe Topspin and Roadbuster, because that Deluxe Leadfoot actually looks pretty good.

    And HA Soundwave continues to amaze, although the Deluxe actually looks better in those small pics (maybe because the cannons are missing?)

    Alright! Deluxe Leadfoot does indeed have the door chest! HA Soundwave's legs look better too.

    Leadfoot, Wheeljack, both Soundwaves = BOUGHT HARD

    That Optimus looks very interesting. Of course one would need to see larger pics before making a final decesion. About the other photos there Soundwave is looking much better than previous pics. Wheeljack is also looks pretty cool.

    But Leadfoot is just...:bay

    Too bad that Optimus is just a Buster Prime with grey proto parts for the remolded stuff. I woulda liked to see his final paint job. Also, that vehicle/stealth mode pic is sooooo tinyy.

    Man, I remember back YEARS ago when Fantofan was THE place we saw everything first.

    I'm honestly a little surprised they're still around. But that's awesome. they're good people.

    Hasbro? o_O 

    Does that mean we'll be getting him here in the US? That would be great. I mean, I love the ROTF Leader figure, but this one looks like it has some potential.

    k

    so i figure it might be worth sayin, but this pic could be entirely misleading


    1) that top image that has the Hasbro watermark does NOT somehow mean we'll be getting this toy in the states. Simply because that top image is just a piece of concept art from the movie itself, having nothing to do with a toy. [You can see the Autobot symbol and the "3" in the top right, as seen on most all the other pieces of concept art we've seen]. Doesnt mean that thats not the image they may be basing a toy off of, but it doesnt mean anything really. Most of the concept art thats passed around has that big old watermark on it [and i know this cuz i've seen similar stuff myself working on movie projects for IDW etc]

    2) that COULD be the Striker optimus toy in the bottom image. But it could just as well be the Jetwing Prime toy as well [only sans jetpack.] Its got the same exact parts remolded [the arms and abdomen]. Doesnt mean its NOT the striker prime. We dont really have any idea if they're using the same mold as jetwing prime or not. But this could very well just be a prototype for jetwing just showing off which parts are new on a kitbashed premium prime



    so yeah

    Probably Hasbro Hong Kong, who are agents for Takara.


    Better paint, the extra accessories that have been touted, the remolded parts.

    Hasbro are not going to throw all that in for $45. Full stop.

    yeah, and back then it took me 15 minutes minimum to download the first picture of Supreme Cheetor from ToyFair.

    I didn't even realize they were the ones that provided this picture. Thanks for pointing that out.

    I've wantedc to post a thread about what Leafoot's Mech Tech weapon would look like. Now that it's on this picture...

    Hard to tell.
