    I really want these as well as Skywarp because I missed out on the Target 2-pack with Ultra Magnus and I'm not willing to pay Ebay prices for them.

    I look at it this way, if they release the Henkei Skywarp in his G1 look here in the US along with a Thundercracker that was painted with stripes similar to the ones they used on Transformers Classics Starscream and Skywarp, then the people who own the Botcon Thundercracker and Target exclusive Skywarp will still have something different.

    This way maybe everyone would be happy. Then again I really want a Thundercracker in his G1 look.

    Dirge is an instant buy! Want more seekers! Thundercracker, Sunstorm, Air Warrior clone, G2 Ramjet, Slipstream and other 2 'Rainmakers'.

    Personally I'm a huge fan of the Stunticons and Protectobots...but if the other sets are any indication...then these won't be the characters that I know. :(

    More Seekers is always good. Everything else sounds cool too. Can't wait for Botcon.

    We REALLY need Sunstorm. Then maybe a new *storm to make a new trio with Acid and Sunstorm.

    Slipstream in G1 is just a pipe dream...

    Bah, SUNSTORM FIRST.

    Dirge is still good news for those who didn't get him, though.

    Sweet! That's what the girl at Customer Service assumed, but hearing that it came from a Hasbro rep sounds promising! Thanks!

    Now that is what im talking about. Its about time we got the rest of the cone heads. We got the first one like 4 years ago and Japan got the these two last year. Now how do we convince Hasbro to release another Starscream repaint and call him thundercracker?

    Awesome news. Dirge was inevitable, but it's nice to get some confirmation of it. Can't wait to see what he looks like. He and Blurr will probably be Wave 4.

    -maybe Lugnut is a movie verse version of the Animated character (maybe taller and more threatening)
    -interesting that Dirge is coming out before Thundercracker or Sunstorm (maybe Thundercracker is being reserved for the next wave, hopefully with say Jazz, Wheeljack, and Trailbreaker)

    If the torso bot for the Stunticons set isn't a repaint of PCC Huffer, I'll honestly be surprised. Especially after we saw what that mold's combined head is a dead ringer for Menasor.
    I'm betting the limbs will likely be those from the Rallybots set, too.

    I believe the Deluxe Meg is the WFC one. Grapple on the other hand, I don't know.
    Grapple will be interesting, because if it's a new mold, then it's likely to be a more modern "movie" design. But if it's a repaint/tool of Universe Inferno, then that just may open Generations up to the Voyager class, since apparently it was suppose to be Deluxe only.
    Either way, I'm interested.
