Fan reaction at the convention was very positive for the 6" Titanium Grimlock and Prowl figures. I'm with the masses on this one. These'll be great! Very excited to see their release.

I msde a list for all the guys I want this year and let me tell you, I hope I have a really good birthday and Christmas. Does this mean Grimlock will be in stores? The War Within one. I think Ratbat is cool.

I'm pretty sure that they are confirmed Luketroop, have a great birfday! :D

Wish I could have a good birthday and Christmas. The most I'll be getting for my birthday are Spark Blue Soundwave and MAYBE Mp-05 Megatron (which is still in the "we'll see" stage).

No one in my family will buy me anymore toys for B-day/Christmas cuz they say I'm too old to have them. Yet, I'm younger than a lot of guys here: 17 (18 in June).

aw man that stinks. :( I just turned 16 earlier this month.
I hate how (some) parents do that! oh well, my mom still refers to them as "BARBIES" for some reason......stupid mom. my dad does sort of understand me but I usualy get colone from him for my birthday or some kind of weight set. my step-dad doesn't respect them at all though, he's just about as red-neck as they come!

They've been doing it since Armada. It was a killer for me to buy figures from the Unicron Trilogy and the Movie lines. Now with Animated coming, it's gonna tough as well.

I cannot wait to get these figures, and since I'm going to work at Target, I'll have employee discounts! Tyscream, if you're reading this, you should do this as a part-time job! Same with you (dare I say it), Autobutt!

sadly im in the same boat as u sabr.. but im younger-14! yea well i jus have to buy my own figures.. which takes awhile to build my collection since my parents would only allow me to buy one or two every now and then

anyways hasbro has made up for making us wait for animated! these new figs for 08 look awesome

You know what's funny, when your a kid and you want Transformers you can only get so many because, you have no money and can't go to the store and parents will only buy so many for you. Then you grow up and you still can't get the figures you wanted as a kid because the price has sky rocketed. Life is funny that way. I'm 29 hunting down g1 figures and some of the prices I've seen are crazy. For example A G1 Springer MISB on ebay was a buy it now for over $1600! I always wanted that figure but that price is too too much.
I think it is really cool that Transformers has been around this long and is still attracting new fans. You younger guys should stick with it as long as you want, everyone has a guilty pleasure.

must have mini-con 12 pack

These pieces are all great. I hope to be albe to afford them. The CDT Hot Shot is a perfect mold for Roadbuster, and Sidways is perfect for Ratbat as well. I'll definately get Fracture as well. One more femmebot (and a Decpticon one at that).
