Being a completist is beginning to be problematic.
I'm glad I'm getting a job soon...
That battle damaged Prime is the same one that was also in the Sam's Club three-pack with battle damage Arcee and regular Voyager Starscream, right?
Odd that Arcee recently also opped up in single packaging.
Bumblebee, Ironhide, and Blackout are definate buys for me. The others I'll decide after seeing them in person.. that rear window on Barricade does like nice.
*Waits for Premium Megatron pictures*
Right now, the only one I'm picking up for sure is Premium BB. I might get the Jazz also, but I want to see it in person first before deciding.
Very nice. I'll have to pick them all up!
Will be picking up Barricade to replace mine, which has the paint on his doors flaking off. Also will get BB since I still have NEVER seen an 08 BB in stores.
First there was RoboVision Optimus Prime (voyager) which was a Target exclusive.
Next came Premium Ratchet (voyager) and Premium Megatron (voyager) which were both Best Buy exclusives.
Deep Space Starscream (voyager) was announced next; I don't think it's out yet. It will be a Target exclusive.
The remaining premiums appear to be mass releases. We get the last two voyager molds (Blackout and Ironhide), the first two leader molds (Megatron and Optimus Prime) with new headsculpts for both figures and a sword for Prime, and a bunch of deluxes: Bumblebee (08 concept camaro version with battle mask), Jazz, and Barricade.
It is not known whether leader Brawl or any of the other deluxes will be getting premium versions. Maybe they'll do deluxe Scorponok, Brawl and Bonecrusher to finish off the movie cast?
i may get a few of these! They are nice!
These all get a definite "meh" from me.
It's not like these paint schemes are so awesome that I'm going to re-buy the movie figs I already have or make me pick up the molds I already passed on.
I'm so over the movie line. Just gimme my Big Daddy and bring on the Animated already!
I see the new head on Bumblebee, and the frosting on Ironhide, but I honestly can't see any difference w/ Jazz or Barricade. They look exactly the same to me - maybe a new sticker here or there, but other than that, identical. I was hoping for glossy paint, etc.
Just you wait... 5 years from now (maybe 10) Hasbro will make anniversary editions that will be Alternator sized.
Jazz and Ironhide will be mine purely on the fact I dont own them yet.
The pictures are not that clear so I can't say much. What happened to the Black Camaro? How come we get another battle damage Voyager OP? Is'nt that the one included in the 3 pack along with Starscream and Arcee? Where's deep space Starscream?
I REALLY want that Bee. Dammit.
I'm glad the battle damaged Optimus will be available single,i know i love the heck out of mine. That BEE with battle mask is nice too!
I have so many deluxes, these just dont seem reasonable. If a premium LEADER Bonecrusher were to come out, Id be in. Hasbro has enough of my money from the last year. Offroad Ironhide, Evac, Incinerator, Stockade, and Landmine will be my last Movie Tf's.
hrmmm hard to tell any difference. Blackout and Barricade seem to still use the same photos from the first release. They should have made the LED lights on Barricade.
Stealth Bumblebee is shipping before Premium Bumblebee.
Deep Space Starscream isn't released yet.
I'm waiting for that SS, because unlike these he actually looks different and awesome.
I would like to get the bumble bee with his battle mask.
