    I'll definitely get an Onslaught, hopefully he looks good once we see better photos of him... That deluxe Megatron is tempting me more and more too...

    The Hot Rod looks cool.

    My list of who I\'m getting:
    Deluxe Bumblebee V2
    Deluxe Barricade

    Maybe:
    Deluxe Drift
    Deluxe Crosshairs
    Deluxe Berserker

    I mean, it's great that we are in fact figures of these characters. I was worried we wouldn't, seeing as it looks like this line might only be as long as AOE. But the fact that they're TRU exclusives is a bit of pain in the ass, especially considering the nearest TRU to me is probably a 90 minute flight away

    That indeed looks like a retool of Universe Onslaught. Considering majority of this subline (if not all) are retools, we can clearly say that this is the case.

    I wonder if Hot Rod is utilizing an existing figure.

    What is it with Hasbro and making characters exclusives? Stinger last time (I\'m sure no one cared about Silver Knight Optimus being an exclusive) and now Hot Rod? Even Nitro and Onslaught. I guess it\'s so they can keep the line short, like others have said.

    For some reason I\'m getting an AoE Deluxe Lockdown vibe from that image of Hot Rod.

    Can't make out anything from the image, but it's nice to see Onslaught and Hot Rod confirmed. TLK is turning out to be a pretty good toyline!
    Though, Onslaught's looking a little... Spindly. Hopefully it's just poor posing.

    Oh damn you're right.

    It'll be nice to have actual teams to face-off on a shelf.

    I don't know, the proportions seem different. lockdown was annoyingly short and squat, the legs on Hot Rod look longer compared to the chest. Could just be the blurry picture though.

    Hot Rod, Onslaught and Nitro are definitely new molds, hot rod looks with nothing of kibble of the lockdown mold, onslaught doesn't have the proportions of the universe too and etc.


    I expect to see official pics these 5 days (19-24).

    I hope I\'m wrong, but from that pic I see Onslaught as Long Haul with Energon Scorponok legs and Universe Onslaught\'s back guns, Da f**k?

    I can't really say anything about these aside from wondering if they're retools or new molds.
