    No, Not yet. Hasbro release dates are a good reference point. I believe the classic line starts in October according to the Cybertronian Inquirer.

    Nice! Can't wait for these to come out! Odd that TRU is going to be carrying them for almost 15% cheaper though... unless the prices in the Target computers are wrong. Looks like I'll be going to TRU to get... who the hell am I kidding? I'll pick them up wherever I see them first and gladly drop whatever money they want for the Classics line... :thumbs2:

    Darn, I was hoping for more. The movie by itself doesn't seem like it's worth $20. I hope they at least make the packaging more spiffy and throw in a nice booklet or something.

    in teresting, didn't Target list these @ 12.99?

    also interesting is the 'Vintage Classic' tag ~ Kid Dynamite surmised that this line would be run similarly to the Star Wars Vintage line, and this would seem to back that up.

    I am not so sure I'll pay $20 more for anniversary prime since I got the DVD already but I may buy one if it's cheaper than the 2003 version.

    "SKN" = Stock Keeping Number. Not "scan".

    As someone who hasn't gotten hold of any TFs other than the G1 reissues, BTs and MP Prime, what size TFs can we expect at the Deluxe and Voyager price-points?

    Compare them to BT/MP size for me please. Approx obviously.

    Thanks,
    Steve.

    a deluxe nowadays is a little bigger than a G1 car, maybe about the same height as G1 inferno/Grapple and a Voyager (formerly Mega) is about the same height as a BT, maybe a bit smaller volume wise...

    If you really need to make it a word, it is pronounced 'skin', generally.

    I thought they were SKUs or stock keeping units. Commonly pronounced 'skew'. But It doesn't really matter. What does matter is when we get to see the classic line.

    Nevermore: Your quoted post on TFans in the N&R section said that it was 20th Prime and the movie DVD. That's where I got it from. Here's the link: http://www.tfans.com/talk/index.php?showtopic=43074

    A friend of mine on IM mentioned this link to me. Apparently he was wrong. My apologies.

    Considering that loose incomplete ones are going for over $100 now, $90 is starting to seem like a pretty good deal though...

    Nothing in this line is gonna come close to MP Prime's size

    Voyager toys are usually close to the same size/robot height as Alternators/Binaltech, but can vary greatly depending on proportion or complexity.

    Deluxe toys vary too. but usually average a robot height between 5 and 6 inches tall.
