    My friend at TRU mentioned a new SKU in their system for a new Genereations "set" its listed as EX-Generations SRS Pack 1 Speed. Its Canadian SKU is 290858 and is listed at 149.99 CAN. First thought that came to mind was "oh geeze something based on Cybertrons "speed planet" " Anyone else have some info on this?

    Huzzah! It's real!

    Bummed if it's an exclusive at TRU, price will hopefully not be too crazy.

    I still think these are replacing the CW boxed sets. So hopefully they have several planned..

    The podcast confirmed for being the unimpeachable truth once again.

    Speed consists of Quickswitch (from Sixshot), Star Convoy (from Voy Optimus), Nautica (supposedly a remold of Brainstorm and Blurr), Fastlane, Cloudraker and a titanmaster for Thunderclash.

    There is also suppose to be a Strength set.

    I'm only interested in Cloudraker and Fastlane, so hopefully someone doesn't want those.

    Cloudraker wasn't part of the set. It was one Leader (Quickswitch), one Voyager (Optimus), two Deluxe (Fastlane and Nautica) and one Titan Master (Thunderclap).

    Sounds about right. Timing matches up pretty well too. Since the first cw boxset (gw2 superion) came out around the same time as wave 4 (defensor)

    Well Toyfair is starts Friday right? Hasbro is usually up and running early Friday or Saturday.

    Though I can only imagine it.

    I just need to see Tidal wave.

    Wonder when the actual list for the Strength Set will be. From what I remember, the listing is as follows:

    1. Titanmaster Powerhouse(?) TM
    2. Fastlane -Deluxe
    3. Iron Apex - Deluxe
    4. Tidal Wave - Voyager
    5. Magnus Prime - Leader. =)

    Have to say I'm not overly keen on Quickswitch (unless there is some serious remolding from Sixshot) and Star Convoy, but the rest sound delightful.

    Titanmaster Thunderclash? Gah! Should have been a full voyager.

    Nice to finally see some more evidence of this. Hopefully we'll get the full details at Toy Fair.

    ThunderCLAP, according to the transmissions podcast rumour. Might be an unrelated character.
