    DUDE, were you the one that streamed the panel live?

    If so, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. That was my first live stream and the panel was actually as exciting as the TFCon 3P panel.

    Thanx :)

    My guess is February? Chinese New Year is February 10. It would be a good idea for them to have him for sale by then it only makes sens-

    *remembers Prime and Animated*

    *remembers that YotD Prime came out in the summer of 2012*

    ... yeah, nevermind. Probably mid-late Spring.

    I think he's more laughing at the folks who literally think that Smokescreen's computer model is a minorly tweaked Knock Out one. There are similarities in design but if they have any parts in common at all, they are buried deep in there.

    Of course, one of the major pieces of evidence trotted out for this is that the only picture we have of "AM Smokescreen" is an unpainted test shot model of Knock Out sitting at that place on the table. This was before the character was revealed for the show at all. Because of that, IMO the jury's still out on what the figure is. It could indicate a retool, or it could have been a deliberately uninformative stand-in.

    If it's a retool, it will suck though. As a representation of the show character, that is. And seeing how he rates a new-mold Legion with the proper parts layout, I suspect Hasbro is on the same page, whatever Takara does or doesn't retool.

    You crushed it out of the park, Kudos.

    That is a really epic missing of Digilaut's point.

    However, yes, the retools, while I really enjoy them, do contribute to the feeling that "Classics" is in a holding pattern. I like the FoC toys in Generations but I would like to see something else too. Hasbro dropped their usual hints in the Q&A at least.

    About the actual show. Does anyone else think that BB will finally get his voice back?

    Also, am I the only one that is seeing NO ARCEEE? A aprt of me is starting to think that SHE is the one that won't be joining us for season 3. Would make sense, instead of losing a THIRD partner she finally sacrifices herself. I hope not cuz I like her character, one of the richest in TF lore.

    Guys, one question... for what I have read, this guy seems to be called Predaking (still not sure if official), so is this the whole figure or is it going to be part of a combiner?

    It's official, the big black&orange dragon-bot is Predaking, a singular bot, not a part of a combiner.

    This isn't G1 Classics Predaking any more than RID Grimlock or Energon Ironhide have anything to do with their G1 namesakes. It's Prime Predaking.

    I noticed that myself. She can annoy me but she also has some fantastic moments and I would hate to lose the character.

    I do hope they release a Deluxe Smokescreen. I'm not thrilled with the Legion one but I will buy it just to have him if I have to.

    They say we'll hear it in S2 at least who knows?

    And I doubt it. Her voice actress months ago commented about how she's excited to see Season 3 confirmed. I mean if her character's killed off by then why would she sound happy about the season if she's not going to be a part of it anymore?

    That and that there's word of her doing recordings for Season 3 too so we'll see her. Trust me I'd hate to lose her sometime on the show but just because she didn't have a toy in the first wave in the Beast Hunters line doesn't mean she's not going to be on Season 3. After all she didn't appear in the first wave of the PRID line either and at that time we didn't think she was going to get a new mold. However we were proven otherwise in Wave 2 so it's likely she'll get an armoured form later on in the line.

    Hey guys, i looked at the official photos, did anybody notice that Laserback has a symbol on his shoulder that's different from the revealed Predacon one? It looks more like a re-imagining of the Beast Wars Predacon symbol

    I noticed it too...the symbol on Predaking looks like it may be unique to him. I'll have to take another look at Laserback though.
