    Wingblade looks pretty cool. I'd much rather have that than Arcee. I don't see why a US store wouldn't want to sell that if given the opportunity.

    Damn. Looks like I'm gonna hafta suck it up and import something. Think this'll have the same metallic paint jobs as the rest of the Japanese Animated figs?

    Prolly a foregone conclusion that they will, tho I'm not too fond of it.

    Alas, I'll take new Animated stuff any way I can get it.

    I REALLY hope Wingblade sees release here, but I may have to import him if he doesn't. Thats my most wanted TFA figure.

    Fingers crossed. I really want Wingblade prime - I only have a Cybertron mode Prime, and while I do love it, I'd really like an earth mode one.

    Is hydrodive Bumblebee smaller than the regualr version? If so, it might be a buy, as I did'nt like the size of his deluxe incarnation.

    This this only leaves Thundercracker and repaint Bulkhead. I want them, but if these two never see the light of day it wont hurt to much. Getting the rest of the new molds will allow me to put closure on at least Animated's toyline.

    Once the Allspark Almanac 2, and TFA season 3 on DVD (if ever, aarg!) get released I can feel good about closing the chapter on the greatness that was Transformers Animated. And, maybe even get back into Transformers again (beyond getting just a few must have figures).

    This is the first time we've heard that wingblade's mold was finalized. all we saw of him before was the slideshow shot, which I figured was a prototype. good to know he made it all the way through development.

    I'm gonna go ahead and get takara's blackout, and their rodimus if it hits before hasbro's. also go for wingblade prime and hydrodive bumblebee.

    but I'll also buy rodimus again if hasbro releases him later. and if they release the others down the line, I'll buy them again too. because I love this line, and I want to show hasbro my thanks, and know that I supported this line all the way through.

    I'm just happy there will be at least one option to get Wingblade Prime and (hopefully) Hydro-Bee, even if they might/will be import priced with candy-colored metallic paint. (maybe I'll be lucky and Hydro-bee will use up all the shinies on the aqua-pack and not much on BB himself. ... ... nah. :)  )

    YAY!

    Though the listing for Elite Guard Bumblebee intrigues me. That was clearly a non-show repaint.. does that mean they'll release non-show repaints that we never got, like Toxic Oil Slick, Fugitive Wasp, and Vortex Blurr?

    I really want them to bring out a Ramjet, for some reason he has had absolutely no love in toy form.

    Just curious, why is Rodimus so much more expensive than the others in that class size?

    They didnt want to stock any, what makes you think Hasbro hasnt already asked any of them? Be glad TRU decided to even get Arcee, cybertron mode Ratchet, Ironhide and Rodimus. we can only hope one of the other retailers figures this out and takes on some exclusives.


    currently i am happy for any release anywhere.
