    Do us all a favor and emphasize the word "assume", otherwise I can guarantee you someone will half-remember your post as an official Hasbro announcement a week from now.

    Guys, let's just try and be patient. A watched pot never boils. If we completely ignore it, Hasbro will go ahead and release it.

    That's Hasbro logic!

    This platinum edition stuff is super annoying. All Hasbro has done with this latest bit is ensure that I won't be buying most if not all of the generations AOE toys from them or from Takara until Fall when these sets finally drop. It has also made me very reluctant to want to buy any other figures coming out like deluxe Lockdown for fear that there will inevitably be a much nicer deco further down the road.

    Me too smh

    Passed up so many great deals for all these figures ever since these damn sets were announced

    I hope these don't end up being rare, hard to find, or more expensive to buy than buying them individually.

    Too true. Just hopefully not too many people will be avoiding getting the regular Generations releases for them to cancel the Platinum Editions, kind of how they ended up cancelling the Trilogy line. :/

    At least these pics seem to confirm that Optimus won't be translucent. Though they've skipped on the silver paint on the rear tanks again! grrr

    Good point. I'm kind of laughing to myself because I purchased a good chunk of the Generations figures so far, but realistically these Platinum sets are superior.

    So do I double dip? Sell the older Generations? I don't know, I understand the frustration for sure.

    I'm waiting to see what SDCC throws up. I'd love to see a set of the four onscreen Dinobots (or even just the three deluxes, but of course they'd never miss Grimmy out) done in a similar deco to the Platinum leader Grimlock, and a set of the three Decepticons, though a tarted up HO Bumblebee would be good (with a silver face because the dark grey next to the new Bumblebee doesn't look right) so maybe a tenuously linked KSI set of the four.

    I'm sure whatever we get, we've not seen all of them yet.

    I would sell them while the sellings good. Right now some figures like drift and hound are still hard to find in some areas.

    After seeing the movie, I'm surprised that they went with a repaint of Crankcase instead of throwing Lockdown in that Breakout pack.

    As awesome as that would be, I kind of hope they don't do it so I don't feel stupid for spending the entire two weeks before the movie hunting for a Galvatron.

    IKR? I bought crankcase and it had sickeningly loose joints and the dreads in a weird position that never really worked for me. I wish they included Lockdown as well.

    On another note, I didn't see a TRU sticker on at least the Leader 2 pack. Can we assume then that the $50 target price tag for the 5 pack is legit? I sure hope so!

    Don't get your hopes up. We still don't even know if the $50 target listing is for the Autobots united set.
