    That Autobots united pack looks really good!

    I also really like the set with Evasion mode Prime, Rollbar and the Vehicon, the paint on their alt-modes look great. They look pretty cool. :D

    There's not confirmation that these are TRU Exclusives though, unless I missed something.

    Definitely getting the United and "Farmageddon" sets.

    Platinum Edition sets are always TRU exclusives.
    Then again, probably none of the Platinum Edition figures/sets are TRU exclusive. It may be TRU is the store that orders them.

    Either way, it sucks.

    Definitely getting the Autobots United set, Drift alone is worth it. Not too thrilled about the "Farmageddon" set, though Rollbar looks pretty sharp for being a redeco of an IDW mold.

    Definitely getting the set with Big Rusto and Rollbar. If someone is army building Vehicons, I will happily trade mine for another Rollbar.

    Had I not purchased 3/5 of the Autobot set, it would likely be the route I would take on knocking them out. May grab it if there is a sale, just to have a set of figures in each mode.

    And that, folks... that is how you make a G1-colored Evasion Mode Optimus Prime.
    If it weren't for the obvious high price, that 5-pack would be at the top of my want list. Those are simply GORGEOUS figures.

    what the clear plastic?! I like everything I see here except for the leader prime. He looks like one giant Energon weapon. which of course sucks as I really like the Grimlock

    Autobots United is a must buy for me.

    I really don't hold much interest to Evasion Mode Optimus Prime and plan to part with it the moment I get the 5 pack. Would you be interested in purchasing that figure alone loose from me when the time comes? Let me know.

    Actually for 2 sets there was confirmation a month or so ago. The listings for the Optimus/Grimlock 2 pack and 3 pack with evasion Optimus and the Skids redeco were found in toys r us computers and listed as their exclusives. One more remains, to be seen(more of); the platinum AOE Optimus w/trailer for $129.99. Not sure if it's generations AOE leader or 1st edition Optimus.

    As for the Autobots united 5 pack, hopefully it's the same as the set listed at target for $50, since many of us that do want it already have some of the figures in it(like crosshairs and evasion Optimus).
    Actually robotkingdom's pics appear to show that Optimus with dark blue opaque plastic(kind of like movie 1 Optimus figures which I like) and chrome in addition to silver paint:
