    Oooooh! I like how they come with a free comic. :)  I was only hesitant about this wave because I couldn't relate to the characters origins. A nice pack-in comic may just push me over the edge to buy these.

    You'd complain even if they made one.

    Impossible, PE, Igear and coming soon, MMC have all made G1-style Arcees. Just pick one.

    Yeah, because everybody should support 3P and not wait for official product.

    Armada Starscream's vehicle mode looks much less like a flying torso than the original, so you know it's good. ;)

    I'm just realising they can just call Hoist, "Hoist".

    It actually matters to me that Hasbro respect this character.

    You can wait all you want, but it doesn't necessarily mean it's coming. In the meantime, there's plenty of options for people who want a pink G1 looking Arcee.

    They respect the character.

    Just because they haven't made a pink convertible Arcee doesn't mean they don't like her, it means they don't necessarily think a bright pink convertible girl transformer will sell to most people. Even so, they've done plenty of pink female transformers named Arcee.

    I am completely underwhelmed with what Hasbro has shown thus far, I like a few(skids, swerve), oh well at least this lets me spend more on the third party projects coming up.
