    I want PICS!!!! Curious to see if Takara's United will have different paint schemes than Hasbro. Recently, I have felt the need to shell out import prices on figures for my humble collection because of the attention to detail some of my Japanese figures have in comparison to US releases.

    People had plenty of opportunity to get TC between Botcon and Henkei. It's time to get the seekers that never got the treatment yet. Then come back to TC...

    Is the "6-53569" the Wal-Mart code for all TF deluxes? I'm wondering if ROTF Deluxes had a different code, the implication being that TF3 Delxues would have a different code.

    *IF* Wreck Gar is a TF3 toy, it also seems a bit unusual that it's the only new product listed. At the soonest... i would *guess* there won't be any preview TF3 toys released 'til Early/Mid may... which is still a long time.

    eh, but who knows.




    Botcon and Henkei, even relatively wide release ones, aren't an option for everyone. On top of which people are understandably attached to the character.

    Brimstone was a scout so no chance of that.

    WTF? Thundercracker has never seen a price point release the can actually be afforded, by
    normal collectors, to say that TC should have been bought between Botcon and Henkei is dumb,
    because I for one can't and won't shell out $75 to $100 for a $12 deluxe figure, I don't care
    exclusive or what country it's from, as is the problem with a lot of us out here.

    I mean damn in Hasbro deluxe we have 2 damn Starscreams, Skywarp and Ramjet, now Thrust & Dirge,
    when the hell are we going to get our $12 Thundercracker, not to mention the MP Starscream & Skywarp.

    I am waiting for Jazz, Tracks and to see if I like Perceptor...not holding out hope, but it
    may surprise me. Wreck-Gar sounds interesting I may get it if i have the extra cash at the time
    or if he looks too awesome to pass on.

    At the moment I am more interested on getting (what's taking forever to actually see in stores)
    Cyb Soundwave, Red Alert, Blurr and Dirge. If these coming out "spring 2011" are like the damn
    Universe Ratchet, Wheelie, Cosmos, Warpath & Inferno, I will be severly pissed, as I only found
    Inferno one time....ONE TIME!!, and never found Cosmos & Warpath.

    This is excellent news! As much as I like Animated Wreck-Gar, I was just thinking the other day how a Generations Wreck-Gar would be awesome. Hopefully we'll get some pics of it.

    Interesting. I guess they can't reveal EVEYTHING at conventions, because we'd never be surprised :)  and I am surprised with wreck-gar. I loved that guy :D .

    The listing states Wreck-Gar as a deluxe, Brimstone is a scout.

    This is a deluxe, so either it's a new mold, or a nameslap on a random repaint, because I have no idea what movie mold would suit him beyond Brimstone, and that's a scout.

    If I remember, wasn't there an unused classic Prime mold that resembled the voyager? I keep seeing talk of a new Prime, but I don't think anyone has brought this up, yet. I thought molds cost money.

    The original idea for Classics Prime was as a Deluxe, and a prototype was made, but they decided to go with a Voyager instead (same design, just different size). As far as we know a mold of the Deluxe was never made, just the prototype. Much like the canceled Titanium figures they showed off at a previous Botcon.

    From what I know, the next step would have been the mold making process, which seems to be the most costly step in the whole process.

    Yeah, Classics Prime was originally going to be a deluxe. It got to the proto phase, before they up-sized it. I already brought it up earlier in the thread.

    When it comes to Prime, there can really only be four possibilities.
    1: WFC Prime mold.
    2: Deluxe Armada Prime mold.
    3: Classics two-pack mold.
    4: A new mold of some sort.

    Bee only has three. There's only WFC, Classics, and a new mold.

    Where do you even think they came from? Zobovor from ATT (long-standing fandom member) works for Wal-Mart. That's where he got them.
