    HELL YEAH!!!

    Ever since Titans Return Kup I've been waiting for them to do Crosshairs and best of all they're using what I think is the best figure in the Siege line! He is a must get, now bring on Pointblank & Sureshot.

    Another must get? Apeface and it sounds since he'll be coming with Spasma so he'll hopefully be featuring that oh so sweet Titan Master gimmick from Titans Return.

    As for Spinister? I'll go ahead and get him to, like Ironhide, Hound, and soon Mirage he'll be replacing his Combiner Wars counterpart on my shelf.

    I'm probably going to skip Astrotrain though, I mean I feel the completist in me say that he looks nice and is totally worth getting even if he won't be joining my main CHUG display. But then again he'll be out of scale, besides I'm so happy with the Titans Return Astrotrain like he is the perfect Astrotrain to me.

    Okay, Crosshairs is just okay (I'm glad we're getting him, though), but the other three rock. Very excited

    After we presumably get Snapdragon, I think there are decent odds on WFC Selects TM Optimus and Megatron. Surfboard extra

    I like this. There are a ton of potential UT redecos out there and I'd grab them all. Hasbro, seriously, I'd grab them all (especially CDF Hot Spot and Scattershot)

    Toys are always going to be "hollow." No TF ever has been solid plastic, it's always been at best two hollow pieces sandwiched together, but Transformers always have space-saving cavities or gaps where parts go somewhere because that's how toys are made.

    I stand corrected, that post with the images should have led with that one, but that was also a coloring error and the rest of the episode he has the gray head.

    Really? No mention that he was the leader of the bloody Mayhem Squad??? Dude was badass. Even in his later appearances under Thunderwing's leadership. Even when I did not know he had a toy, I wanted a toy of him. :)  Honestly, was never a fan of the MTMTE "dumb savant surgeon". Was it even explained why he was so smart sometimes? This design clearly takes more hints from the G1 toy than the IDW design, save for maybe the head. I don't see that the rotors would detach, either.

    Lol Blitzwing is probably where I’ll finally and reluctantly draw a line. The TR one, while taking liberties, is good enough to the original toy but I invite Hasbro to change my mind :) .

    I’m loving Spinister and Apeface, I just don’t like Spinister’s skinny head.

    I kinda wanted Crosshairs to be a extensive remold or atleast a new figure, but either way I am excited for him and Apeface.

    Is Armageddon the for-sure name of WFC2? Or just a fandom code name?

    Oh man, I love all of these. Finally getting Apeface, a suitable replacement for TR Astrotrain, and a very beautiful Spinister. Crosshairs also gives me a reason to buy LG Windblade with Pinpointer now (unless a new, better Windblade gets made).

    I was thinking \"Another Astrotrain?\" then I seen the pictures. Wow, this version looks marvelous. Some very nice G1 inspiration.
