    New takara advanced line figures revealed

    I just found this over on seibertron. The three unnamed takara advanced line figures Ad 28, 29, and 30 have been revealed to be snarl, clubber or possibly crabber (takara's name for slog?) and previously unknown but highly speculated helicopter drift. These listings are originally from Japanese online retailer Maruzen.

    Edit: that only leaves AD-18 and AD-19 unrevealed, I'm guessing stinger and the rally car

    Senart=Snarl
    Clubs=Slog

    That's my guess, at least.

    I don't know if I should wait or just buy Snarl and Slog from Takara.

    I'm still grinning like a loon over the 'Drift Helicopter' that supposedly comes out in September.

    I already have the Takara version on pre-order. I just pre-ordered the 'Drift Helicopter'. STILL grinning like a freaking loon here.

    What's even better is that AD30 is listed as an AUTOBOT. Which suggests that if he is the helicopter, he's already turned from the Cons to the Bots. So maybe in that leaked scene, Hound is shooting flares to signal their location to a newly arrived Drift?

    Hm, Should I?

    I mean if I do this I will only have to stick with Hasbro Grimlock, Slug, Scorn, Strafe and Slash for this Christmas' toy drive.

    It comes down to what you prefer. I personally prefer most of the Takara versions to the Hasbro versions. There are a very few Hasbro versions I do prefer, like Scorn.

    Leaked scene?

    Also, guys, its not Blubber or Crabber or Clubs, its Clubber. Don't makes this "Beacon" 2.0.

    His cover name could be Clubberlicious Blubber Crab but I'd still suspect he's actually Slog
    ; }

    If the name for AD30 holds up, then I think we've solved the puzzle of the mystery helicopter.

    Triple changer? It said he might be re-scanning a second alt-mode.

    How about waiting for pics from Takara so you see what it's colored like before you go pre-ordering. There's always a chance it may not be that great.
