    That's been the MO for a while now. They'll never confirm nor deny anything because they don't want to get hopes up over nothing or dash hopes with no reason.

    Sounds like they will be. It's a nice way to trickle out new information in a world where big cons and panels aren't a possibility.

    I was expecting it to go longer, maybe to have a bit more discussion. But it was a media person and a design guy so you probably don't have the same level of insight that you would if Warden was there.

    They stayed focus on Pulse and exclusives (Which makes sense in retrospect since this is "Pulse Fan First Fridays.") and teased enough to make it clear what will be discussed when [email protected] comes around.

    Had it not been for all the leaks and the RED figures getting revealed yesterday this would have been a pretty cool set of reveals.

    Definitely disappointed that there weren't Studio Series reveals but I wasn't really expecting any.

    Good to hear that there will be more figures revealed for Studio Series later this year though.

    Tigertracks and Rotorstorm look sweet. :)  Though I wish Rotorstorm's head isn't just a more Autobot version of Spinister but other then that loving the colors. Also love how they confirmed that the rED series will indeed included all eras not just G1. Hope this a sign of the rest of the TF lines and media eventually doing the same.

    On the weapons pack, who does the drill gun belong too and what is the teeny-tiny piece above it?

    I was disappointed with Megatrons gun mode until I noticed the silencer was a separate piece.

    Same. It’s a pretty shitty move to include accessories that you only need one of (Prime’s gun, Roller, etc) with a figure intended for army building. It also increases the price by including stuff you won’t want. People who want the accessory pack are paying for a figure they don’t want, and people who want the Centurion drone are paying for accessories they don’t want.

    Kinda sucks with the Exclusives that those of us outside of the US wont get :/

    That Centurion battle set looks sweet too. Plus Roller is always a bonus.

    Rotorstorm will be a must.....if can track it down of course.

    Nevermind, someone at TFormers actually took screenshots, guess everyone here forgot?
    Transformers Fans First Friday Reveals Begins!

    Centurion is something I expected for a long time. Need one.
    Tigertracks, big pass. Already have 3 of that mold. Plus never cared for Diaclone.
    Rotorstorm is disappointing. His cockpit being the chest is just as important for him as it was for Spinister that it is his legs... No thanks. Same as with Spinister who had 2 inferior toys before, I will wait.
    G1 Blaster reissue - don't care, I have the original. Wasn't he reissued a few years ago anyway with casettes in Encore? I have the Twincast remold myself.

    I've been hoping for those dinocassettes so this is good news for me.

    ....Man. I could feel the hype go in and then be let out when they showed a shirt. Can't wait for Centurion Drone, Tiger Track, and Rotorstorm though!

    The surprising thing about him not getting a new head is with how they do an extra head for basically every mold these days, I’d have thought Rotorstorm would be the obvious alternate.

    I didn't think about it that way, I really don't understand why they wouldn't separate the set, unless Hasbro reckon Centurion won't sell as much. Or vice versa
