    (it also suggests that Hasbro can re-cast moulds/toolings of older toys if they want to... if it is deemed profitable enough - I wonder if we will see them or TakaraTomy digging out more of the original wooden moulds of the early years to reissue some more rarities)
    I wonder why they used the original wooden prototypes, and get a set of the actual toys to use for the moulds/toolings.
    this is exciting news, I'd love the first two tapes they released last year, without the burden of an unwanted bumblebee toy.
    And I'd love to see some Re-issue love for moulds that have never been done, Mirage, Swoop, Wheeljack... the list goes on.

    It occured to me that with all the hype about Unicron we forgot that there wasn't a Titan class toy announced at SDCC.

    I wonder if the Seacon toys could be released as a set at the Titan price point?

    Yeah... rumours were circulating that the next Titan would be announced at SDCC. Maybe with Omega Supreme still yet to be released, it was better to be promoting that one, without dividing the attention of people between two upcoming Titans.

    I hope the Seacon set isn't at the Titan price point, as those six would add up to AU$200 on their own, and Titans haven't been at that price since Metroplex. It would be an extra $100 just for being in the one box.

    Assuming these are Generations Select toys when released (or Takara Toy Store specials) they’ll probably cost as much as a titan to collect — at which point in one box would be a nicer way to get them.

    I'm still upset the Terrorcons didn't get the one box treatment from TT.

    So,

    assuming you're able to order from Hasbro Pulse, which I have done successfully already, sending to a mate in the US.
    Am I correct in thinking they will be listing the SDCC exclusives on the 4th of September?

    I gots to get me an Ecto Prime.

    According to TFW, that's when they are supposed to be up on the site.
