    Awesome. :)  This is making me want Perceptor even more.

    Kickback: Still happy we\'ll finally be completing the trio.
    Brawn: Looks good to me. Glad being a Titanmaster doesn\'t preclude being released other ways as well
    Breakaway: Pretty sure now I\'m totally fine passing on this one. Wanting to limit mold repeats and all.
    Twinferno: Still in love.
    Triggerhappy: Ehhh... Yeah I can pass here too, but he at least looks neat.
    Hot Rod: Happy to update my RtS one with this one.
    Perceptor: And here I was going in thinking I was perfectly happy with the RtS version of Perceptor, but the TR being a microscope is just awesome. Looks like I might have another update to get here too.
    Broadside: Hmmm.. Love battleship mode. And he does look different enough from Alpha Trion that it shouldn\'t feel like getting the same figure again.
    G2 Optimus: Haha no. Don\'t think the jet looks good in these colors at all. Just waiting for Octane still.
    Sky Shadow: Damn I\'m impressed here. I\'ll be passing to wait for Overlord because if I don\'t want to repeat deluxes I definitely don\'t want to keep buying the same leader molds... But as Sky Shadow this one still does really look cool.
    Sixshot: Still a definite buy.
    Repugnus: ...Shit. For a Titanmaster release this one looks awesome. Okay I may cave here for the little guy.
    Fangry: ...Ugh ditto.
    Shuffler: Aw man no not you too.
    Ptero: ......Phew. Finally no desire haha.

    My wallet started crying after seeing this... There are so many of those figures that I want. I\'m going to have to sell a kidney...

    I know this is waaay of the mark, but I was wondering what the next line of TFormers is going to be?  Will it be TargetMasters, or Pretenders?  I would be interested in an updated Pretenders line.  One with more complicated transforming bots and more detailed outer shells.

    I\'m not sure if anyone said this yet, but Perceptor appears to be a remold of Hardhead, which should put your tank mode concerns to rest.

    Doubters: Oh no, Mr. Chaos, you must be reading the listings your friend gave you wrong... there is no way we are getting Legends Brawn

    (does the Chewbacca lean with hands folded behind head)

    Okay, all aside... I love so much of this. Perceptor, Hot Rod, Shuffler, Ptero... oh, I am spending so much money over the new few months.

    Now... show me Nautica and make me happy.

    What? If that was directed at me I didn't even use the word.

    Huh so he is. My brain probably just shut off there after seeing that little Repugnus.

    Yeah it is, but it's just how I feel. Usually don't get this riled up over a figure, but something about is just sets me off. :shrug

    Unless I am missing it, I don't see anything that looks like he's a remold of Hardhead. Only part I can see is the cannon slider might be similar.

    Yeah, we already KNOW Overlord will be a massive remold because you can see from the teaser silhouette that his Jet half is massively, if not comepletely different

    I still need a real Huffer, Windcharger and Cliffjumper... I mean, I can live with Huffer, and have Scout Windcharger, but Cliffjumper doesn't count until he at least gets his own head...

    Reminder that this isn't even the main event, this is the "Here's some cool shit to get you excited for the main event" party.

    Well.. Now that I've accepted the dog shit quality, I'm a little excited for some of these.

    Still doesn't mean I don't wish they were made like they used to be. Oh well. I'll get a couple here and there.

    Sixshot looks great and sturdy. Not too impressed with Sky Shadow so hopefully Overlord will turn out more to my liking. Overall, nice wave of figures shown.

    Gosh a lot of these guys look good, sucks I decided I wouldn't get any more after carnifex.

    The planes for broadside just add so much play value, so props there hasbro!
    Kickback is my favorite insecticon so good see him get a toy.
    Brawn looks great.
    All the new titan master sets look so good compared to waves 1 and 2 (shuffler you are adorable).
    Doublecross still looks great if small. Like the surprise reflector too.

    Problemis, you KNOW half of these figures won't have the same nice colors as on the final products. (ie metallic-painted sentinel prime)
    And I worry about the continued drop in QC quality.

    It wasn't directed at you, it was directed at the person I quoted.

    Anyone else think Broadside's grey is way too dark? Every iteration of ther character has had a much lighter, slate-grey color. Not sure where this almost-charcoal comes from

    --EDIT-- I guess the chest WAS darker, just maybe not THIS dark. But the head was the much lighter grey on the toy, which based on the red eyes was otherwise the inspiration for the colorscheme.

    Given the non-event that was SDCC this year, you have to understand we are skeptical if Hasbro is going to reveal more.

    I wish more Transformers came with teeny tiny little vehicles. It'd make up for the tendency for "big" characters getting small toys.
