    You mean the ones we already saw? Including the one from the Fan Vote 3-Pack that's already up for preorder at Amazon?

    EDIT: Also, the English name of that Powerdasher is "Zetar", with an "r". The katakana spelling doesn't have that final "r" sound because it's not emphasized in the pronunciation or somesuch.

    The individual names of the Powerdashers are taken from Takara's US "Diakron" line, Joustra's European "Diaclone" line and GiG's Italian "Trasformer" line.

    Hmm I wonder if these were meant to be revealed later today officially at Fan Expo Canada and do the whole see now buy now thing Hasbro has been doing (just Speculation). They look great though, Personally I think Hasbro and Takara have been knocking it out of the park with their choices for their Selects line.

    The TTmall descriptions say that the only difference than their Overseas Counterparts is that the box will have a "Takara Tomy Mall limited sleeve".

    Nope, that will not replace my Takara LG Nightbird, but the Zeta holds a special childhood memory charm.

    I'm definitely in for Zetar. Glad he's not part of a set. Now bring on the Pulse preorders!

    I guess Fan Vote 3 packs will be exclusive to Tokyo Toy Show like SS Drift with 3 Baby Dinobots.

    No new weapons for Nightbird? Lame. Still buying one.

    The Powerdasher is brilliant though.

    Probably get the powerdasher, however I like my LG nightbird much better. I'm tired of that moonracer mold now. Lol

    So....are they TRULY TTM exclusives. or a similar fashion of Repugnus, Grotusk, and Throne of the Primes when it's technically a shared exclusive or something and Hasbro will have their own releases?

    I second this question. I just want Zeta.

    If so can someone help me please? I'll compensate who ever lets me piggyback off them.

    I'd take the Nightbird easily. Not sure I'm sold on the Powerdashers yet.

    I like and have the LG Nightbird, but I am liking the look of that.

    Zeta looks like a lot of fun and that was my Powerdasher as a kid.
