    the only thing here that struck me as new and OMFG WANT is that Transformers celebration sticker on that LOC prime... man I want that.

    still the other stuff looks cool and I'm sure half if not more of it will end up in my collection

    I really like Sideswipe and Sideways. The minicon repaints are not particularly inspired, but at least Sixspeed and Jolt seem better than the Micron Booster 4 versions.

    BTW, did the Alternity line fail already? I guess it's due time.

    Funny that when American toy companies take pictures they're horribly mis-transformed and posed in the same way that a 6 yr old would pose their toys, aka just standing there, and when Japanese people take toy pictures they look awesome.

    Tons and tons of photoshopping can only do so much to make a toy look good when you can't pose and transform it properly.

    I think most can agree that Sideswipe is the sexiest character here.

    I'll never understand the "That's a sexy toy" talk when discussing TF's.

    Nothing really new that sparks my interest on those scans.

    Why did I not realize before now that Sideswipe had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle in his belly?

    when it comes to posing figures for photography to make them look desirable.

    They even made Breakaway look good, i didn't think that was possible!!!! :)
