who's in the lead now for numbers of versions/repaints since TF1? Prime or Bumblebee?

Gut feeling is Bumblebee for my guess, what with the Ultimates and everything. Plus they must find it easier tacking Bumblebee recolours onto some random wave than they do tacking Prime recolours on... I'm so tempted to call up the TFWaki and actually count them... By the time I'm done there could be another half-dozen out, though...

I have counted a little bit and tried keeping it up lost counta few months ago, but BB has certainly over twenty toys for the movie lines alone. Prime can't beat that...

From a quick glance at ebay, the US version of Proper Wheelie seems to be scalper bait... Glad I picked up the EZ one as soon as it came out.

I found Legends Soundwave and Wheelie at Wal*Mart yesterday. I skipped Wheelie (I hate that little leg humper) but picked up Soundwave.

The only reason I mention this is that the Wal*Mart I was at is probably the second worse in the area for getting things in stock. As in they never got in the Scout two-packs (either set!), nor the Supertuner Showdown or The Fury of Fearswoop. Hell they never got in Masterpiece Skywarp. It's a craptacular location for toys and I usually skip it when looking for anything. The kind of place that you'll stop if you happen to be in the store for something else just because you can.

But I found Legends Soundwave and Wheelie there. I haven't checked the other Wal*Marts in the area (yet), but this might be a sign of a more widespread release.

I found Legends Wheelie and Soundwave almost 2 months ago at a Stop & Shop Supermarket. For some reason they get legend class figures waaayy before any other stores around here.

Did my usual Tuesday round today and every store but Toys-R-Us has the Legends class Soundwave and Wheelie coming out of their ears now if they usually stock that size class.

I also found the Demolisher/Skids/Mudflap TRU exclusive while I was out, though. Demolisher looks nice in white.

...but still no damned Animated Acree.

oooh, I kinda like Forest Prime. Despite him essentially being the prime i already have, with weapons that are slightly less cool and a face i don't like as much

Unexpectedly, neither package displayed the Optimus/Starscream combiner mode. You know, the part where Optimus holds hands with Starscream, whips him around on his back, uses him as a shield, and then breaks his arm off and whips him in the face with it. I guess we'll have to wait a little longer for the One-armed Forest Starscream.

Battle Blade Bumblebee pictures

He has two hands! He has a sliding battle mask! He has an arm cannon! He has an energon axe/stinger like in the game! He costs only $12!

Could this be the best movie Bumblebee yet? Quite possibly!

Dunno, the chest looks like something out of the Unicron Trilogy. Will definitely buy to see what funky bits can be cannibalised and added to my Super Premium Bumblebee.

Does he look like a smaller size of HA version? Yeah, I know HA version does not have the right hand and blade. Dunno either, but you could be right.

Apparently we're getting a Bludgeon redeco named Banzaitron: http://www.entertainmentearth.com/pr...number=HT19821.

Not sure if he's going to be branded as ROTF or as part of the catch-all 'Transformers' line, but this seems like the best thread for it...

Some "new details" of Battle Blades Prime. http://tformers.com/transformers-tra...3469/news.html

Pretty good voyager sized version of leader Prime, but those swords could be accessory or placed better.
