    The only figure I could possibly predict at SDCC is Stinger. But other than that I can't see anything big.

    For some reason I think we might also get the chance to see Superion for the first time there as well, it's probably next years big ticket item sort of like what Windblade was for last years SDCC.

    Yeah, I'm not sure exactly what went down with the naming (whether it was a trademark issue or something else) but I would imagine most people who buy this, myself included, will simply be calling him Tracks. Mark Weber essentially even said as much during the panel. This seems like a Tankor-is-Octane situation.

    So they're displaying a DOTM Crankcase and not the proper repainted "Vehicon"....huh.

    Me too! They have so much to work with for AOE, even with minor onscreen characters.

    It is the proper reapainted Vehicon, the shadow of the box is just making the blue look darker.

    I'm defiantly picking up the leader two-pack. A must buy for me. Anyone know the price it will be?

    I guess I posted in the wrong thread, but I meant Sundays display. It's clearly just a DOTM figure. The "Vehicon" in the box is obviously different.

    I usually love all things Optimus... but I just can't get excited about 'color drained - ghost truck' Prime. smh.

    Well, now I know which versions of the two leader class figures I'm getting. Might also get that 5-pack.

    Now who wants to bet next thing we get is a platinum pack of all the voyager/deluxe dinobots?

    OMG, Brainstorm, Arcee, and Chromia are mine... I will have them... have all 3 of them.

    Just wondering why Hasbro would release 2 females in one wave...

    Oh man, when and where are these coming out? Think I may return my AOE figures to get these better painted ones. I gotta gave that rusty prime.

    They look great!

    I think due to popular demand, most likely. Hopefully this means we'll see Road Rage, Strika, Glyph and maybe some males with more feminine body types, along with females with more bulky bodies.

    I like how the AOE stuff is looking.

    I'm confused. Wasn't the Optimus in that leader two pack supposed to be translucent?

    Ah, that's a bummer. Autobot Tracks would've worked, or they could've gone with Turbo Tracks like the RTS release. Hopefully this doesn't mean they can't use the name Tracks again ever, that'd make me very sad.

    Damn-it all! I tried to not look at those pics, but I did, and, yeah...

    I wanted to hate chromed shell former Prime, but he's all chromed very nicely...

    And I wanted to hate leader flat-bodied Grimlock, but he's closer movie accurate paint scheme...

    I hate you Hasbro!

    I want that Platinum Leader set as well.
