    Generations Combaticons, FOC Jazz, Prime and Shockwave shown.... Hasbro indicated there's at least another 30 Generations toys due in 2013, but didn't say what...so don't jump to conclusions.

    Along with Prime Knockout, Voyager Starscream, and a new version of Voyager Bulkhead

    You may also notice, Bruticus is looking very G2.

    If you were putting off getting any DOTM TFs that haven't gotten a western release yet, you'd best get moving.

    No more European releases.

    Only one US release left: Allstar Optimus. (Deluxe mold with trailer...Ultra Price point)

    The rest of the Allstar toys will be releaed in Asia, where Human Alliance Soundwave,
    Que, and DX Soundwave, were already released, so those three are done too.

    Nothing on Leadfoot. You can probably presume the Takara version will be the only mass release for the forseeable.

    That large optimus with the orange missle things looks intriguing!

    I like the look of the new FOC figures, G2 resemblance isn't necessarily a bad thing (in some cases, preferred G1 bruticus)

    Actually.......i just read elsewhere that the Allstar Prime isn't getting a Western release either.

    Although i doubt any of us care too much.

    I did see it on Robotkingdom if anyone is fussed mind you.

    I think Shockwave might be my favorite......it looks kind of odd, which i kind of like......

    FOC optimus alt mode really does look like a fist.

    +1 on shockwave, looks similar to the IDW version. Hiss tank shockwave looks cool too

    I really dislike that thing TBH. Maybe the designers started with the best of intentions.....but something seems to be stopping them from producing a base-transformer reminiscent of how they once were.

    Seen a few more photos. At first I thought it was something like power master prime. Didn't realise it was a base. Looks a bit flimsy.

    We wait and we wait and now we have two Bruticuses (Brutici?) to look forward to! :D

    They're releasing both colours?

    I could've sworn a Hasbro rep was quoted as saying the G2ish one was a test shot, and the final version will have colours more like those shown in Game Informer?

    Aww :(

    I just got a txt msg from a friend at Botcon, he said they're displaying the NEON FOC Combaticons.

    Do-not-want.
