    RiD.


    Who's that black PCC truck a repaint of? The mold looks nice. EDIT: Ah, it's a Huffer repaint.

    Oh, and I really want MP Soundwave! I've always liked Soundwave.

    So for Takara at least they've stuck with Smokescreen being a Knockout retool; the poiny toes are a dead giveaway, but the deco is a redeeming feature and the AM is uniue I think, for those who really dig them alot.

    That bottom right corner is where alot of the news is for me, hopefully there'll be some hi-res scans of those along sometime. I might get Nemesis Prime and Cyrus too, the latter being a mold I quite like.

    Which version of Arcee is on the same page as the Weaponizer Bumblebee? I'm kind of curious about what she's doing there, perhaps a new micron or something.

    The Masterpiece is of course not so much news to me but always good to see!

    Yup, those are looking great! My wallet weeps in pain... :lol 
    Adam, that's the super limited to 25 pieces, Lucky Draw chromed FE Arcee mould. Of course secondhand market prices to obtain one will indeed be stratospheric...

    I still can't see Smokescreen clearly, but... If they remolded the head, I'm in. They did give him a spoiler for vehicle mode, which is one of the things I asked for in this reuse. If the head is a remold and not just a straight redeco, then I'll buy him. I do know that Hasbro's at least considering a Deluxe version, but until we get something concrete out of them and plus it's Hasbro's word... Yeah, I'll import him.

    Very smart move on Takara's part. Use the US version of the mold for him. (Although, I'd have much preferred they use the AM version for Smokescreen. Oh well.)

    I hope that we get a better scan of AM24, AM25 and AM26. I want to see if AM24 has only 1 eye, if AM25 has a mask and if AM26 has a new head?

    Maybe?

    If he comes with it, great. If he doesn't, it won't bug me. I'll just be happy to own a Fort Max.

    I'll probably still go for Smokescreeen just to be save. I rather have a Knockoutish Smokescreen from Takara than playing Hasbro's "Maybe or Maybe not" game.

    Lazy Takara, couldn't be assed to give a main character a new mold.
    Even with a new head and new paint job, Smokescreen will be missing his door wings.
    I'll also bet we will get stikers for the 38 doors!

    Oh well, Ill still buy it.

    What's the deal with the clear blue B.2 and Gra (Knock Out's minicon)? Are those Lucky Draws, are regular campaign microns that are also coming out?
