    My Solitary Gnaw is leading his band of TR shortrounds and that's all I need to keep Pugh, Pugh, Barney McChew, Cuthbert, Dribble and Grub in line. Keeping Trumpton fire free since 2016.

    too big and too simple, it's like the Ark but in colours.
    I would have have considered it if hands were articulated.

    I never felt there was that much difference in design aesthetic between Prime and regular Generations stuff, noiseless faces aside. Perhaps a little more spiky and angular, but not much.

    RID was a bigger departure, being somewhere between Prime and Animated. Takara even bulked out the line with some Generations and Animated.

    Yes, yes and yes. I might even hold back on Prarcee in order to get a Flamewar. She was in the new IDW comics wasn't she?

    I too have a spreadsheet or two :p 

    The info I've seen showed Eject coming with Blaster but I'm unsure if that's a mainstream or exclusive release.

    Others have speculated that the Twincast redecco will come with rewind.

    Unsure what the plan is for any future cassette releases, I'd be very keen on some 2packs like Ramhorn/Steeljaw or Slugfest/Overkill or the combiner cassettes.

    Proto thinks some of the leak listing names are maybe placeholders, Shockwave and Ratchet for instance...

    Owen Hart Action Figure Coming From Jazwares (toynewsi.com)

    On the one hand, I'm cringing at AEW going to new lengths to latch onto something from the WWE's past.

    On the other hand, I'm intrested because a figure of Owen was otherwise never happening as his widow was never going to do business with anyone affiliated with the WWE and rightly so.

    I'm curious to see just what they're able to do in terms of costumes as various logos and designs will probably be trademarked by WWE.

    I suppose compared to the then concurrent Generations they were less different... more different since the slavish devotion to G1 character models.

    And they say you can't hear an image:

    I'm going down the same route. Already have two of the TR guys, the recolour from the Pit pack and a Cyberverse lad, so they can all be Gnaw's lackeys/his pack/shoal(?), uh... gam?

    Is Jitsu the nemesis of Fisto?

    "A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent, personified in this case by a chap with a metal judo chop hand".

    The OG box art had Fisto charging into battle on Stridor, then taking on Jitsu on Nightstalker by himself, literally ready to punch a horse :D

    Given all the drama surrounding the new MOTU I can't help but feel a scene of Fisto punching a horse would have a unifying effect and bring all sides together! :D

    Huh, just tried to find out if Colchester Game had:
    A: Any Micromasters in
    B: If any were Rumble and Ratbat

    There's no in-store phone number and "Ginny the virtual assistant" wants my email address before she'll give me an answer I could have googled!

    So at the moment my only option is to go into town, pay parking, walk up to the store and mooch around on the off-chance they're in stock with the right ones...

    Not a great system, Game, not great at all.

    True enough. Perhaps the way to look at it is 'G1 if it were more interesting'. I mean I like my Earthrise Wheeljack well enough, but he's hardly exciting like the Prime mould, especially in Dark Energon colours...
