Nah, still a voltron wannabe.

i think hes both a voltron wannabe and a megazord mixed together into one. he has the ability to mix in with four other components to make a voltron like thing, but then he has the ability to merge with OS and be like a megazord, so hes both

Looks interesting. Wish we could see more of the vehicle mode. I like that robot mode from what I can see...

Yeah, he definitely has a Star Saber-esque vibe. I'm looking forward to it.

SC-15 Land Mine
SD-10 Snow Storm
SD-11 Iron Tread
SD-12 Dinobot
SD-13 Limited Edition Shadowhawk Marine Type
SD-14 Laser Wave

SD-16 Chrome Horn
SC-16 Ariel
SD-15 Dark Fleet
Plastic Model Kit Grand Convoy
BT-05 Tracks

SC-17 Wing Saber
SC-10 Rodimus Convoy

So they're gonna reuse "Ariel", of all names. *surprised look* You know how there was an Ariel in G1 (proto-Elita), but she wasn't important enough to get a toy?

EDIT: The toy catalogue pic (http://www.greattoys.net/messageboard/tf3.jpg) that goes with "SC-16" looks like Energon Arcee, though, if I'm not mistaken. :confused: So is "Ariel" gonna be her Japanese name?

They're just doing the whole Optimus/Jetfire/Overload thing from Armada again. Why, oh why must Optimus always want a three-some? Why can't he just be happy in monogamy?

Arcee is the Japanese name for Sureshock. Going by the name and the fact that Sureshock always hung around Alexis, it's safe to assume the character was meant to be female, but it's impossible to tell since all it ever does is beep.

Bah weep granna weep ni ni bon.... When are they gonna start bleeping out this message in the series? All this crap that they keep throwing on these figures is starting to clutter it all up. Why would they make 20 repaints of all these figures, and crap em up more with extra junk to throw on them? Thats why.. so far.. I like this Alternators line.. much simpler. So whats this now.. Walt Disney is combining with Hasbro.. didn't know mermaids knew how to ride motorcycles.. BTW Arcee.. where'd ya find that catlogue? That's pretty cool.. I'd like to get me one of them.

In the Japanese dub, anyway. It was never addressed in the cartoon or comic...aside from the fact that one of the children's reader books made some mention of it, but they're not really canon... :glance:

Speaking of which... I remember at last years' Botcon them showing a number of different books.. Coloring books, story books.. etc.. The only things I've seen in the states here, is a G1 Sticker book and an Armada Sticker book which both sold for around $7 and had maybe 30 stickers in them. Where are all these other books at? I was hoping to at least find some of the coloring books.

I've seen some of those books at my local chapters.

Local Chapters? I'm going to guess that, that means a local store in the UK? Do you know if they still have any left and what they are? I was really hoping to have been able to find some of the coloring books especially for my kid.

From what I can tell.. thats just it.. It looks like its basically a
B-2A Stealth Bomber that transforms into a robot, and back, and then can be broken apart for Optimus Primes arms and legs.

i think optimus knows he gained weight and now he is hiding it inside 2 giant robot outfits.jetfire is too small for him by atleast 9 sizes now,but optimus still claims its because jetfire got smaller from giga to mega size due to laundry.

Seriously now,it looks like in both pl omega suprime and this new wing saber combenation optimus shows just his head(i dont include the mini vehicles that combine with him)

Dunno if they have "Chapters" in the UK, too, but I'm pretty sure Bombers meant a local store in Canada. ;) He lives in BC.
