In other news, TFormers is still the Transformers source for Glaxy Force.

What does this mean?

Hasbro isn't even bothering to re-color now?

I'm gonna buy stock in this company, they know how to maximize profits.

I'm a little confused by the title, but I assume you just mean re-released LOC figures?

Well, I guess this kinda confirms the contination of "Robots in Disguise" through the movie...

One thing odd, though, if this is a 'wave' of toys, where's toy #4? Or are we getting LOC Thundercracker again? (I had heard of that coming, but hadn't seen a THING on it in ages)

Poor show.



So, not only does it look like the Movie toys are gonna be overpriced (more than usual), but Hasbro are gonna cash in anyway they can, with no effort. Well, when I think about it that way, it doesn't seem so surprising at all.

Judging from online preorder prices thus far, they've been above the standard in the UK at least, and from photos it looks as if the figures are ever shrinking. Hence, less value for money - but, then, size ain't everything, and some of these guys look rather nice. And, of course, the overpricing may just be retailers trying to cash in more than usual. I'm hoping to get my bro to pick the ones I'm after up in the States (where he shall be a travellin') anyhoo, so if prices are the same as usual, should be a good deal, and otherwise at least not as much as those I'm seeing quoted (15 quid for a Deluxe does not sit well with me).

This is a bit poor, not even repainting them, I mean, it's just annoying! I only have three Cybertron Figures, and they are Primus, Metroplex and Optimus, I don't have any of the LoC from that release.

I can certainly understand the re-release of characters like Soundblaster, but the rest of them, they've already been released!

Ah well, there goes my dream of owning a complete line.
