Classics Continues


Recommended Posts

I really don't mind it being under the Universe moniker, but still.


More Classics. Swipe/Streaker have already been confirmed, and they'll look like Lambos, but not a whole lot. Octane is also confirmed.


Other possibilities include Jazz, Arcee, Prowl, Silverstreak (who will promptly be named Bluestreak upon my purchase), Smokescreen. Possible new combiner, and an actual new mold Galvatron not just a purple repaint of Classics Megatron.


Unfortunately, they also announced no more new Alts or Titaniums :07redface (:schin...I'll have to pick up Titanium two-pack WWi Megs/Prime while I can).

They're killing Alts and Titaniums, aside from the expense of the design and materials, because "they're not selling as well as they'd like".




Well maybe, if half the Titaniums didn't have wonky-ass sculpting (Crotch-Tastic Soundwave anyone?), or held together better (V1 Tank Megatron) or you could actually find the Alt or Titanium you want in a goddamned STORE they'd sell just a wee bit better, eh? Some of us would love to buy Titanium G1 Magnus or Alt Mirage but have never seen them on store shelves, and don't want to pay online specialty-shop prices, and never know they're on HTS until the tiny number available have already sold out because we don't spend every waking hour on the phucking Internet.


Have you considered that, Hasbro?

The Alternators news has be soooo bummed. That was my favorite TF line ever.


And yes - had the DISTRIBUTION been just a wee bit better, maybe they would have met sales expectations/goals! I can actually count how many Alts I found at a B&M store on one hand. Grr...


Same goes for Titanium Ultra Magnus.


Hasbro - we can't buy what isn't there. :roll

When was this confirmed?


I misses everything. :07redface


Why the hell would hasbro use the Universe Moniker of all things. All that line was was a vast collection of repaints. Why not Classics 2.0 in movie packaging or something?


Unless we're talking 100% new molds I'm not interested.


Sad about the alts but couldn't care less about the Titaniums. Have yet to actually buy any so no loss there.


The Classics lineup they do have confirmed sounds pretty kickass. Guess we'll just wait & see.

I expected the whole "Classics as Universe" type thing all along - no big surprise there. (Still good news!)


Titaniums? d/c


Alternators? I'm gutted. Not surprised though, as I can see how kids wouldn't like them. They should release a few with a higher price tag IMO - they're better for adult collectors who, although making a very small portion of the market, would probably be willing to spend more. I suspect we'll see a sharp increase in adult collectors after the movie too. Well, for a while at least...

Well, titanium UM just went up in price. I really want to know what the Ultra sized classics 2.0 figure/s will be. I also wonder if this means we'll get that Piranhaking afterall? So much good news in there, but also so much was vaguely left up in the air. And just how the hell does a trailer turn into an axe? Not to mention, how is the figure going to be able to wield something so huge? Last time I checked the trailer on a truck is much larger than the truck itself.
