    Looks like I had my cup of raaage this morning. WTF?! I'd like to know why those wouldn't have sold here myself and ******ed reasoning they're going to give. Springer, fucking Springer and the rest of those "Asia Exclusives" are ones we've been begging for for years. Clearly not for us though. :lolol

    I think Hasbro may have decided to put Ironhide in the show now so they're going to hold off on releasing him until later on but since they've made the mould now they did a quick and dirty repaint to get some money out of it.

    I'm not mad, but this is legitimately upsetting....some of these look really cool. And were not going to see any of these... -sigh- Really makes me re-think collecting if it's going to be this shitty of trying to get things.
    Also, I think these all go to the 40 generations toys.

    Hey Hasbro, can you take me to that diner across the street? Because I like to be wined and dined before I'm fucked. Bleh

    I welcome any new Prime figures, I just hope they appear in the show.

    The Generations figures are a dissapointment with no new moulds in the bunch.

    FOC Starscream, one thing to be said about that, they better release the three of them.

    I hope most of those repaints stay Asia exclusive, all but like 2-3 of them are hideous.

    Some weird, strange stuff here. I don't see anything that excites me.

    WFC Starscream is cool, but so far I've stayed away from the videogame TFs.

    Geeze, look at all those exclusives. I don't look forward to seeing those Aftermarket prices.

    I do see that we'll be getting some good stuff, but all the awesome seems to be getting kicked toward the way of the wind. @[email protected] Hot Spot, Bluestreak, and Sandstorm -- it seems you will never bee now, lol.

    My most loved announcement: Hot Spot (Universe Inferno with new head)
    (Music to my ears!) :D 


    Peaked Curiousity: Swerve (Generations Sergeant Kup with new head, previously seen on Kup's instruction sheet)
    (Wonder if we will get a 'Gears' from this mold too?) :inquisiti 


    Most hated: Wheelie (Reveal the Shield Jazz redeco with new head)
    (Why Wheelie for this mold?...) :(

    While I agree, I am happy to see G2 Power Dive getting some love. That toy has a very special place in my heart as cheesy as it sounds.

    I had a custom planned making him from Energon Bulkhead. I put it off since I couldn't find the right head. I am very exited to see the head sculpt on this re-deco.

    Hmmm, very odd/curious mold and color choices; but the vast majority of these Asia exclusives are just repaints and head swaps of existing figures. Only things that really interest me are TFP Kup and Rumble (nice new molds), though Power Dive might be cool too provided they fix the face and give us a more military appropriate paint deco (since I do like the looks of the mold but could never pull the trigger on High Brow). The other stuff is kinda blah to me. G1-colored Bayverse Leader Starscream is neat in theory though I wonder how it'll come across in execution. And Springer is a bit disappointing. I like the Whirl mold and really enjoy my DOTM Vortex, but the mold doesn't scream Springer to me (more like Rotorstorm).

    Well, the TFP Ironhide mold looks nice, as does TFP Rumble.

    Interesting idea to use NEST Bludgeon as Megatron...I am going to wait to see finished pics before I get bummed over the fact that it's an Asia exclusive.

    G2 Megatron out of Bludgeon is a double homage to samurai Alternity Megatron too.


    I don't even fucking care how much it costs, I'm buying it.

    Kind of hard to say that, when there are no pictures of any of them yet. I agree some of the choices are a bit WTF, but others have some real potential.

    Well, Asia Exclusive or not, I hope they at least produce them in sufficient numbers that importing from asian sources will not become an even more expensive undertaking. :(

    Sort of but the color story use an improvement. Look how many unicron repaints we have.

    Cybertron dark Scorponok sort of covers Black Zarak.

    The exclusives are a mixed bag, mostly because it feels like salt-in-wound among wake of the pulling of the last DOTM waves and FE Prime. The fact that a few repaints are OBVIOUS among some that are outright wall-bangers, I don't know what to make of it.

    On the other hand, we have options for FunPub stuff without an astronomical price, so I guess it's all fair.

    But at least the few figure we will get look great. FoC Starscream is a-m-a-z-i-n-g..I was never crazy about the classics mold, so I'm really excited to see this.

    well cool!

    I don't remember it ever been confirmed we were getting an ironhide toy beyond the Cyberverse. although I think Kup might benefit from diffrent weapons (Third Party get cracking)

    Prime Frenzy? Nice...wake me when He AND Rumble are BOTH ON SHELF!

    and yeah, FOC Starscream is Insta-bought.

    Deluxe-class TF the Ride EVAC is an Asia Exclusive?!?! Aww man WTF.

    I don't mind it when repaints become exclusive to other parts of the world, but entirely new figures!?!?!? That really grinds my gears.
