I would be willing to bet that these are their versions of RID: Classics - but Soundwave throws me off a bit. (Unless they're releasing the 'commemorative edition' rerelease).

It's tricky to even try and guess. They're cheaper than their TFC counterparts, and more expensive than their Classic counterparts.

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

(Complete speculation here...)

Toss in a G1 DVD for each one of those figures, and you're getting close to the right price. Can't explain Starscream's price, though... I dunno, but if it IS the start of Japanese 'classics', I wonder what all they'll squeeze into the line...

Just a follow up that the Convoy Megatron Starscream and Soundwave coming in August appear to be the G1 reissues from the TFC Collection with perhaps some modifications and of course in new packaging. Exact details and pics will be availalbe by the end of the month. Pre-orders posted to the site as well at http://www.digital-toys.com/

So they're going to be reissues.

I wonder what the modifications will be?
