8 more War For Cybertron figures in the Generations line? Jazz and Grimlock Confirmed! Grimlock better be a new mold and not a repaint of Classics Grimlock

Optimus Maximus? Are we harkening back to the days or Battlestars? Hopefully these ones will be posable

Screw Kreo, even on 75% off Clearance the shelves are still stocked with them

Cyberverse? No! Bring back the scout class!!!

Optimus Maximus and not, say, Maximus Prime? Optimus isn't usually used as a designation (aside from Optimus Primal). Can only hope he resembles Fortress Maximus a little. Haven't really bought into the whole Cyberverse line except for a couple of the more interesting ones (Powerglide, Hatchet, Guzzel), but if he has a good bot mode and a non-base alt mode I might pick him up.


Fall of Cybertron sounds like it's off to a good start, just hope Grimlock is larger than deluxe considering his stature in the game.

Folks need to start buying Kre-o. I was skeptical at first, but now am totally sold. I cannot wait to see pics at the NY toy fair. My only ? Would be: where are ratchet and hound??


Soon looking forward to foc grimlock, but agree it would be silly to have him as deluxe

i'm pretty excited for Fall of Cybertron figures. Grimlock will be a deluxe i'm sure. they made no mention of there being Voyager Generation figures.


I love the idea of Optimus Maximus but hate the name. can't wait to see pics. hopefully at the NY Toy Fair. When is that btw?

This is all awesome news! I really wish there were some pics to go along with it though. Optimus Maximus sounds epic, FOC seems to be getting better attention than WFC did, and Kre-o lives! It doesn't get any better than that!

    • The final Wreck 'N Rule set that I'll be looking at ends up being my favorite. The colors on G2 Leadfoot pop, I especially like the metallic sparkle on the blue. Mastodominus is a good Fossilizer but I'm still not a fan of that style of figure. If you're looking to build your Wrecker ranks or are a fan of the G2 era, this set is worth the purchase.

I can see Meany collectors doing this till the other bots come out .

Medicom's flashy 100% scale set presents two shiny leaders with the rather patriotic Optimus Prime in red, white, and blue flames and stripes accompanied by totally chromed out Megatron be@ring only his faction symbol.
