    Firebolt is being made, but they haven't said officially if it'll be included with Protector, or sold alone. I think Vangelus mentioned it would be sold separately in his BotCon vid.. Can't remember.

    Just placed my order with RobotKingdom. For those that know my connection with FP... I asked if I can get the hook up, but was told this is truly a exclusive to both retailers/markets. So get them while you can.

    That is funny. But they most likely bought it through BBTS, since they wholesale to other retailers.

    Yeah, BBTS opened the figure up to other retailers. Kind of nice of them, I thought. Also helps them not end up sitting on unmoved product.

    Who's gonna start the petition for Hasbro to do a Generations Wildrider? May as well, they already have to dust off the mold for the club figure next year. Either that or I really need to find someone who can make a couple lunch break specials overseas when they do gear up for the RID run.

    Want so bad. I'm seriously considering grabbing another 3-pack Rodimus and dying him black...
    Either way its kinda weird how the got this pre-order up before the regular Protector armor.

    Around 1:40 there's some discussion about a targetmaster "going in" to the trailer base mode but not about whether it's going to be included or not.

    No reason not to include it! Unless they were to release a targetmaster PACK for other guys or something

    Around 3:30 they mention a targetmaster fitting inside the rodimus "roller" as well

    just put my preorder, in, this one of the few figures that i would instantly buy on sight,(or preorder in this case) . Very happy i stayed up late XD, and i kind of understand why they want to take care of this first, before the regular armor, seeing that is has more of a limited quantities, but it was kinda funny at first where that was available for preorder before the regular set

    In the quantities, enter some high number, like 300. Then when you try to add to the cart, it will tell you how many are actually left in their system.

    Didn't they put the 2010 Unicron back up for preorder for a bit (for all I know it's still up for preorder, I haven't checked their site in a while)? I thought I remember something about it being back up in one of their newsletters earlier this summer.

    I'm hoping this means preorders for the normal Protector armor will finally start appearing soon.

    I like the idea and have an SG Rodimus, but I won't be bitting. On another note, $95 isn't too bad for protector. I'm much more excited for the regular edition seeing that. I was fearing $120-$140

    So I guess the spoiler/wing extenders are new. Not exactly sure how they go on the mold though.

    I can guess that Firebolt goes with the normal Rodimus while this one gets a sweet scythe. Shame that the Rodimus mold in any incarnation is a bitch to find a a good price.
