    Yes. They only showed unpainted resin prototypes of Skywarp, Whirl, and Tailgate, but confirmed that the US will be seeing them on shelves.

    Finally, all three Seekers at US retail. It's incredible, I know.

    I am so obsessed with the new Rhinox & Waspinator toys! Now who wants Waspinator remolded into Classics BW Buzzsaw and/or Classics BWII Dirgegun?

    I would throw that into my WFC/FOC collection like it was my job.

    And the more I think about it, the more I think I may indeed get the Bumblebee and Goldfire and repurpose them as Sparkplug and Corona Sparkplug respectively.

    Goldfire & Skids will be welcome purchases to add to my Classic-verse line-up and Dreadwing to my G2 Classics. Waspinator gets a pass just because I'm no longer collection Beast Wars Classics. But, looks very good.

    I may be in the minority. And Im a G1 (old guy) fan.

    But Transformers as animals with arms, legs and necks that DONT MOVE, look kinda crappy to me...

    Its nice to see Beast Wars celebrated. But I prefer cars...

    Skids does look nice. I'd like to see more production pics. Paint apps are famously shuffled around after seeing these hand painted protos...

    Same goes for Goldfire... Nice of them to change the name. I like it! :) 

    The baby blue on the Megatron repaint is also a pass for me. Head mold is nice. Just not a fan of bright colors on a stealth bomber... lol

    Its fantastic to see new molds.

    Why would you think that? Tailgate Was a retool of Windcharger originally, not Gears (like Swerve). At any rate, the panel said it looks like his MTMTE look, so new mold.

    Voyager, no pics because they only had the prototype.

    No pictures (they politely asked us not to take photos), but Whirl is a voyager that meets halfway between the MTMTE and Dorvack designs.

    Tailgate is a brand-new mold that looks just like his MTMTE design.
