    I think you have to be born/reincarnated to get that position.

    so, completely jokingly, you'll need to KYS.

    but seriously, even though there'll be inevitable delays in the releases, the sheer number is staggering. Gonna have to budget like $100/mo minimum to keep up with FT... puts them on par with cable and cellular service

    Much appreciated. Mainly cause i don't get to spend as much time around here these days. So it helps me keep track of what my favourite 3P company is actually doing.

    Thanks. Hope we'll get a proper update soon. But looking at that release schedule it might be years before we finally see that guy..

    I'm fine with the size actually. The official MP's size is fine too but I just reaaaaaaaally don't like the design of the toy.
    Different strokes, aye :)

    Haha, true true.

    I don't have UM though and don't plan on getting him.
    If Hoodlum or a Takara V3 Hot Rod ever comes out I'll probably display him with Prime or other carbots. I'm weird like that XD

    I'd rather have a new Rodimus Prime over a new Hot Rod.

    I'm a bit surprised. Seeing everything listed together, it doesn't seem like FT has too much on their plates. Don't get me wrong, it's a good amount of figures, but the releases are pretty well spaced out. This list seems doable and reasonable, with still some room for more additions. We have still coming (without release dates) Hot Rod, Arcee, cyclonus, Devestator, and two more headmasters. Maybe scourge, blurr, and sharkticon could fit in there?

    It's amazing to me how many of the figures on the list are ready for release. Only seaspray, blitzwing, and omega need to be reworked. Weirdwolf, grimlock, skyfire, and galvatron are painted and ready to ship, along with slag (not on the list). The rest just need a color scheme and they're ready for retail. FT should book time with their factory way in advance. They have a backlog of designs ready for mass production now, they just need the manufacturing time to get them out.

    A Sharkticon that comes with a Quintesson would be fantastic.

    And, if they're doing combiners... Predaking!

    @DinobotGrimlock
    I don't know when all the variants of figures came out but I'm sure with a little help people could fill them in. I did this just to see how they have sped up production even though it seams they are slow, adding all the variants of dinobots takes a lot of factory time.

    It would be cool to get some approximate months for the X,D and G variants wedged in there. DinobotGrimlock you can use this as you wish.
