SS / VP: The colours aren't fantastic, but I guess the plan is not to compete with the Supreme monster-sized Starscream... eh, dunno, both might not look so stark in real-life. I hope the UK gets this rather than / as well as the big one...

Basically, I just want a tetrajet...

Nice chest design work on Megatron, though this probably won't be the version used in the comic...

At least the prototype used for the back-of-box splash looks swell...

Okay, sorting out the news... first of all, the Armada remolds will be single packs in Cybertron. Mass retail.

You mean the wave 2 ones? We saw them in packaging before.

Remember the new Alternators number (81328) Mouth04 from the Allspark found in Target's computers?

It's the new assortment number beginning with Skids. New packaging might be partially reponsible.

Filtering out the updates:

- Autobot Skids has been confirmed. Interestingly enough, he has a new assortment number (the same one Mouth found in Target's computers a while ago), apparently a mid-line refresh. Slated for a December 2005 release.

- The Mini-Con listing has been revealed too: "Battle Packs". Confirmed so far are:

- Shockwave vs. Tankor (Armada Terradive & Wreckage redecos)

- Sky Lynx vs. Thunderblast (Armada Gunbarrel & Bonecrusher redecos)

- Razorclaw vs. Steamhammer (Armada Thunderwing & Knock Out redecos)

All three are slated for a November 2005 release. Not sure about the next one:

- Scattorbrain vs. Meteor (Armada Iceberg & Drill Bit redecos)

I guess there will be at least two more sets with redecos of Armada Dune Runner, Ransack, Buzzsaw and Dualor.

Blurr, Longrack, Runamuck (file card not on any photos) and Buzzsaw will be regular mass retail Deluxes. No two-packs, no exclusives. Slated for a November 2005 release.

Scouts wave 3 (Armorhide, Brakedown & Undermine) has been slated for a September 2005 release.

There seems to be some confusion about the names of Undermine and Wreckloose (Cybertron version of Dino Shout and the antler-lizard thing). However, since we already saw Undemrine (Dino Shout) in packaging, I'd say this is merely a mix-up.

Wreckloose is slated for a November 2005 release, as is Brush Guard (the Decepticon redeco of Overhaul). Oh, and Backtrack, Spiral and Oval (no team name given yet) too.

Backstop (Saidos) is displayed, info card is not depicted though.

Oh... if Thunderblast is a Mini-Con, what's Chromia's US name then?

Leobreaker and Mudflap are slated for a September 2005 release.

TRU exclusive Starscream vs. Vector Prime is for real. Slated for an October 2005 release, MRSP $29.99.

The RiD Optimus & Ultra Magnus rededco two-pack is a Costco exclusive. MRSP $31.99 (?), slated for a Fall 2005 release.

Cybertron Legends wave 2 (Evac, Jetfire, Scourge & Leobreaker) is slated for a September 2005 release.

Still need to find out more about LoC Skywarp, who was apparently handed out at the Con?

Very friendly of them...

Custom 404 -> verify filename -> reroute. Not rocket science.

So Hasbro retrieved the license for the Shockwave name?


Heh, talk about too little too late...shame.

Hmmm . . . kinda hoping they'd paint Vector's planet key for the two-pack, but I'm glad I didn't rush to get the single version of him.

Minicon 2-packs? Well, I guess the good news is that Hasbro got the name, Shockwave back.

Armorhide's robot mode isn't half bad. Head sculpt looks good, especially with that paint scheme. Truck mode's a bit lacking, but that's forgiveable. May actually pick him up.

it's not the first time that Hasbro uses the same name twice in the same series (especially TFU)

Kind of disappointed that Starscream's only coming out in a reasonable size in that two-pack since I already have a Vector Prime.
