Whoah, apparently you can get some new Alternators direct from HasbroToyShop from that page. Nice that they're linking to that AND that you can get some figures that aren't in stores yet now.

Yeah, I was just poking at the use of the phrase "authentic cars," which would imply that they were making actual cars that transformed into robots, hence the .

!! Read Tarantulas' bio,

"Spawn of something darker and more ancient even than the DECEPTICON forefathers of the PREDACONS"

So does this FINALLY prove that tarantulas is a spawn of UNICRON?!

How many times does a joke have to be explicitly said it's a joke before some people finally realize it's just a FARGIN JOKE.

A Hasbro-store exclusive wouldn't be a bad idea, though...

I thought they were supposed to be in an assortment with Prime and Skids in March?

Yes, but that isn`t the first assortment they`re in, except for Prime.

Not necessarily. The Liege Maximo (who has also been linked to Tarantulas in various fan-fiction) would also qualify as darker and more ancient than the Decepticons. Both the Quintessons and the Fallen can also qualify (though the former seemed more collectively insane than evil while the latter was only recently included in the mythos after Beast Wars).

Yup.

To break it up:

"Fishbowl" wave 1:
Skids/Sunstreaker/Tracks/Prowl - out since December

"Fishbowl" wave 2:
Rollbar/Ricochet/Skids/Sunstreaker - out since late January

"Fishbowl" wave 2 rev. 1:
Prime/Rollbar/Ricochet/Skids - out soon

"Fishbowl" wave 2 rev. 2:
Prime/Rollbar/Ricochet/Sunstreaker - after that

"Fishbowl" wave 3:
Mirage/Meister/Prime/Tracks - May?

"Megatron" looks more like a Galvatron in disguise than BW Megatron.

Primal design looks better drawn than in the pictures I saw from Toy Fair.
