    I'm not saying never, but not right now. There hasn't been a WFC figure that I've REALLY wanted I haven't been able to get, unlike a lot of folks probably more deserving. (Hopefully, there's some re releases coming for them.) However, I've had a lot of luck with sales, clearance, and Amazon Warehouse to get a lot of exclusives like G2 Sideswipe and the Fan Vote set for a lot less. Hopefully, it will happen again; if not, I'm not gonna lose sleep over this set. I've already got 3 mirages. I'm set. More power to everyone else though. I hope you guys are able to get them!

    Yus! That one.

    It's still kinda weird that they're calling him Skywarp instead of Silverbolt. That might be why my brain didn't register the confusion. Thanks!

    Bone white, bronze gold, blue spots, proto-feathers.

    How hard is that? We're this close. Instead, all I see is prototype 1996 Dinobot. Which is cool in its own right, but not what I wanted.

    That's the one I'll preorder in a heartbeat. $46 for SS I'm fine with; Skywarp is the gift with purchase.

    Don't care for the orc and extra 26s on the legs on mirage, but better than the siege version at least. Have no interest in the dinosaur, so that's a waste

    BW Grimlock is canon though, he was in one of the Axalon's stasis pods and was pretty much insurance incase Protoform X got out.

    Seeing this set I wasn't so hot in Mirage, since to me the Seige versions have been a lot better than the Earthmodes. I find it interesting how Mirage extensive retooling to look so similar to the already released version. I find it a little wasteful, but I know the majority salivates at the sight of G1 cartoon accuracy. Could have used the toy head to differentiate a little.

    Grimlock sure is interesting since it seems its a completely new deco. The new head looks awesome.

    I find it interesting that the new head redeco is heck of a lot more interesting than the extensive retool.

    I preordered just in case, but I may sell off Mirage, since I'm mostly good with the 3 different Siege versions I have.

    I don't think people actuallly care, it's just that the guy talked so long about getting new beast wars toys for so long, but when they are released, he has done almost nothing but complain with each new Beast Wars toy that has been revealed.


    Anyways, what T-Hybrid said was probably better.

    Lately, half of what I read sounds like Prime Ratchet's voice. Either my mini-best-of Prime/RiD2015 binge has gotten to me or there MAY be some grumpy people on the boards. :)

    My guess is that they're going with the BWII name to avoid confusion with the Fuzor character - though you'd think that would imply both characters would be on the shelves at the same time, and no rumours or listings have revealed Fuzor Silverbolt yet.
