Uncanny how the Vehicon hides his alt mode parts:

YES Jet Vehicon! Can't wait to see how similar the robot mode is to the Car Vehicon. That's just gonna be cool.

I am also happy to see Swerve returning to being a truck lately. He was one of my earliest TFs...then I lost him in a drawer for years of my childhood.

Your desire for the jet (expressed in the earlier thread) became reality! Quick, ask for something else!

Also, the Protectobots now apparently have a jet and a drill tank thanks to these candy toys and the drill and jet can form an alternate torso: http://www.hk-tf.com/discuz/upload/view ... a=page%3D1
Barber and Griffith should use these guys in the RID comic.

BBTS has put two new preorders up for Takara Prime products (and not EZ Collection, aka Cyberverse): Darkness Megatron and Gaia Unicron. This is confirmation that there will be a Unicron toy of some type! Based on the price, these come out to about Ultra size (so not a big huge Unicron this time).

Edit: Leaders are now apparently $30 (so he would be the equivalent of Leader Class). I would love if he turned into a volcano, but I don't think they'd go that route. :smile2:

I dunno, looking at his general design, i don't really see how he could turn into anything BUT a spiky mountain/volcano. Unless something happens to him in Season 2 that we have yet to know about and he gets a less "Earthy" design somehow.

Either that, or he'll have a lame "no, it's really a vehicle!" alt mode like TF1 Megatron or RotF The Fallen.

Actually, I really love The Fallen's vehicle mode, especially the green one, it's like Nero's ship and a Klingon Bird of Prey had a baby. Although, knowing Nero's ship, it probably could.

Both are pretty awesome sci-fi fighters, in my opinion.

And TFP Megatron is a juiced-up Romulan Warbird!

Proto of Unicron, Japanese PCCs, etc are up!

Maybe Nemesis Prime is coming!
I like Megs' bat wings but doubt Hasbro will do that since it's a Mini-Con feature and the Hasbro Prime is not the Mini-Con-centric line. Love to be wrong.
