I would also love to see Omega Supreme in there (although I doubt my bank account could handle it, and my by then wife would definitely kill me - she's upset enough with the Movie figures, and I have been rather sparing there...).

Sunstreaker and Sideswipe? Cool! Loved those guys as kids. Ironhide - a definite must if they actually give him a good robot mode (preferably with nods to the G1 cartoon design). The G1 figure was such a disappointment to me as a kid, but he's one of my fave characters!

And Galvatron would rock, given a good G1-esque design. I have always felt he's terribly underrated, and the flurry of Megatron repaints has always been a poor show (although has on occasion provided a better scheme for the mold - e.g. Cybertron).

Hope there'll be plenty of nifty guys to choose from!
 


New sale thread added with a range of Transformers including Masterpiece, Botcon, CHUG, RID, Movies etc.

Looking for MP-11T Thundercracker and MP-9 Rodimus v2 (Takara version with as few QC issues as possible).


Check out my new sale thread now!

Also items on eBay.

Well, they don't have the rights from Porche, so they can't give him that mode (kinda like they couldn't get the rights from VW, so BB's not a bug, anymore). My best guess would be that they use some sort of sports car and then just add police lights when they do Prowl. They've all ready got a Mustang car, courtesy of Barricade, so I'm hoping they do something else.

Not really sure they named Jazz, they listed Bluestreak and Smokescreen as the Prowl re-tools\repaints.

I'm getting excited that we're getting updated figures of almost all of the IDW Infiltration team. If they release Wheeljack we'd be getting the full set!
 

Few stuff in the UK to trade/sell. Measly sales thread.

I LOVE WHEELJACK! I hope he's still some kind of european sportscar if they make a new one. Lancia still makes cars right? And Prowl should be a 350Z like the Infiltration comic. It's the perfect look for an updated Prowl since he usted to be a 280Z.

One of my favorite things about TF is their vehicle modes, so I hope they stay accurate as they get updated.

(Again, so much news was coming out of BotCon, I'm not sure where the source news for this is...)

They're not going to do any "real" vehicles for any new figures. They'll be doing mish-mashes like the first ones... like the compact car that Bumblebee turns into or the Snubnose truck for Prime.

that's kinda disapointing, Bumblebee's vehicle mode looks pretty ugly.

When they come out I hope there are more available than there were here this time, could only get a couple as they didn't release the next couple of waves over here. I really wanted a Grimlock, off to ebay it would seem.

I really hope for the Classics 2.0 that they do away with the stupid "exclusive" Transformers. It's a real pain in the rear to have to go look at Wal-Mart or Target for a single figure. Massively inconvenient to only have to look at Target for Ultra Magnus vs. Skywarp.

On the other hand, those exclusives bring down Hasbro's costs, and also add characters [i]that otherwise wouldn't have gotten toys AT ALL[i/]. You may be annoyed that only Targets had Skywarp... but would you be more annoyed that there be no Skywarp AT ALL?

Good point. I'd rather have Skywarp than no Skywarp. Wait, I don't have him yet since Targets in this area seem to not want to stock anything other than movie figs right now. Sooner or later I'll get him though. I did get Classics Devastator, however, and I must say, it's a nice one. Too bad I have only seen one Wal-Mart that even had them.

I guess it just makes it more difficult to find a figure when you only have one place to look. But, it's better to know it's out there somewhere than not at all.

Is there a picture of him anywhere? I've heard a lot of talk about it, but I never actually saw the proto of it or anything.

Every time I see that, I wish they'd produce him. I wouldn't mind if they were to even simplify it, a tiny bit to make it cost-effective, either.

Ah, but would he still sound like Peter Lorre...?

I would like a Classic Sunstorm, I like his color scheme. And a repaint of Bruticus and Superion like they did to Devastator. A Classic Galvatron would be nice or better yet a Classic Unicron where he look a lot like G1...

You'll be getting one of your wishes... As mentioned earler in the thread, a Classics Galvatron is on the way and they made a point to mention that it WILL NOT be a Megtron repaint.

Classics Galvatron will probably be influenced by his Spotlight appearance.

Don't 'spose anyone has any images thereof, besides the cover shown in the review?
