I'd like to get Titanium Grimlock and Prowl!

The new Animated Activators look interesting...

Unfortunately, the 25th Anniversary Prime looks like it has short smoke stacks! :rolleyes: (The display one has long stacks, but the packaged one doesn't)

Yeah that sucks. I call that false advertisement :(

Grimlock's tank looks rather crap like WW Megatron's but I forgive it as I have been wanting these WW figures for ages and was deeply disappointed when they were announced as canceled.

ohh animated activators grimlock looks cute!
can't say much for patrol bumblebee (simply ugly repaint)

i reckon the person who took the picture, took it at the "wrong" angle but it doesn't look nice in the pic and i agree

I wonder if we'll get anything "special" during Hasbro's Weekend Presentation... :)

Looks like 25th prime is just commemorative prime in a new box. Bet it's got the kiddie missles too. :(

I think I'll get an encore version.

As for the rest of it all: PASS.

Activator Police Bumblebee would like very nice if there wasnt yellow on his alt mode (no yellow at all would be even better).

The Titaniums are very nice, must. get. Prowl.

Why bother rerererereleasing G1 Optimus if:

The smokestacks are small-its a anniversary toy-for collectors not kids.

The price will be like the 2001 reissues $100

It has a voicebox, DUH!!! Just rerelease G2 Prime and be done with it.

you just have to wonder sometimes

So are Ti WW Grimlock and Prowl going to be SDCC exclusives?
If so I hope that they'll eventually find their way to markets and Toyworlds here. :D

I don't think they are though...TRU Exclusive yes, not SDCC
SDCC only has Nemesis Prime and Titianium Skywarp

Do you think Oz TRU will eventually stock Ti WW Grimlock & Prowl or you reckon we'll get shafted... (which is more than likely :rolleyes:)

Here's a nice gallery of the displays (http://sdcc08.asmzine.com/gallery/hasbro/transformers/index.html)

Of note . . on the back of Prowl and Grimlock's Titanium boxes are pics for other unreleased Titanium's: Soundblaster (http://sdcc08.asmzine.com/gallery/hasbro/transformers/slides/IMG_1452.html)and Primal Prime (http://sdcc08.asmzine.com/gallery/hasbro/transformers/slides/IMG_1449.html).

I wouldn't mind the Primal Prime. I would love a BM one too of course but that's a bit pricey. I think the Titanium Optimus Optimal actually was pretty good.

Hot Dawg!.... I just can't wait to get my hands on Classics/Universe/Henkei Bluestreak and Ironhide!

Hmmm... I think I would actually consider getting Primal Prime.

I don't like the repaints, specially Soundblaster who is based on a mould that was absolute fail. I am just happy that there is a chance for Prowl and Grimlock.

I'm afraid I can't agree on Piranacon, hanprimus. However the Masterforce-style packaging is very nice.

I too would go for a Primal Prime Titanium. Probably not Soundblaster. That mould was bad enough the first time around!

Man, that Season set looks great. I don't care about the colour either. Price tag is a little bit out there, but meh.

Fingers crossed that the WW Titaniums are easy to get hold off.

Gee that 25th prime looks to be blatently false advertising if that sealed toy is the one they will package (commemorative prime).

I've gotta give it to the guys who designed the packaging of "G2" King Poseidon - that packaging is the shiznit! :D

Too bad when I see pics of the 6 individual Seacons (http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/extensive-gallery-of-new-otfcc-seacons/13610/), they make me dislike the colours even more... :rolleyes:

Don't know if we should be getting our hopes up with the 2 recoloured Titaniums (Primal Prime and Soundblaster) because I haven't seen any mention of them being released. I think they may have just been on the packaging limage ayout from before the line was axed, and was just left like that to save the time or effort in removing the images.
The TFarchive website has the pair listed as if they would have been the next pair to be released if the line wasn't axed, so the set of four would have pictures of each other on the packaging.
http://www.tfarchive.com/toys/checklists/titanium_series.php
Then again, maybe those two recolours are going to be released to TRU as well, but I haven't seen anything suggesting that, and I think the priority with Hasbro at the moment is to at least make money from the 2 unused, completed moulds. Releasing more recolours may not be of interest, with how little money they make off them per unit, and those two characters are hardly well known in the general Western/Hasbro fandom, let alone the general market.

Wouldn't surprise me too much if that duo did see the light of day eventually, since the moulds are done, etc.

Meaningless repaints have never been a problem for Hasbro in the past, so I doubt the relative obscurity of these two would be an issue.

If some store in the US wants a exclusive, Hasbro could trot them out later.
