Some better pics of Mirage




TFCC exclusive Astrotrain.  This guy was supposed to hit retail a few years ago, but never found the support.  Gotta love the detailing on the wings plus that big fat Decepticon logo!

Man, that Mirage is awesome.  I picked up a few of these in the binaltech line (hound, silverstreak), but due to the cost I haven't gotten any more.  Seeing pics like that one really makes me want to add to the collection though.

Mirage is probably going to be the first Alternator I buy multiples of, since he was the first Transformer I ever bought! I still remember the day I went to KB's looking specifically for Transformers. He was the only one they had, but I didn't mind!

New pics of Voyager class "Classic TF's" to be released by Hasbro next year sometime.  Yes they're horrid images, but you'll get the point.

Prime - looks like a heat rub symbol on the side of the cab.  Yay!


Megs - obviously some type of gun, but hard to make out.

Here's more stuff some of you may find of interest from the TF classic line due to be released before the movie.

Prime


Megs...Looks like a Super Sooker gun, but at least he's still a gun, right?


Astrotrain.  Looks good, not sure if he turns back into a train though.


Rodimus..


Starscream..

My Transformers collection:


Shelf o' G1. Probably not the best way to keep super-expensive toys, but it's the best I got.


Alternators. I'd have a bunch more if they weren't $20 a crack.

This doesn't include my beasties, RiD, or PVCs. I'd need a couple more shelves for those to be out. Anyway, thanks for looking.

I was just reading through some info at TNI today about the Transformers Classics line that has been mentioned above by iFett.  I don't keep up on the TF stuff as much, so what's the story with this line?  When is it expected to come out, this year or next?  Also, what is the size(s) of these - varying, uniform, etc.?  Just curious what this line is all about, it doesn't look too bad.  Not like I need something else to buy, but I was just curious.

The "classics" line is just a filler in between Cybertron and the new movie toys.  The classics should be hitting shelves this fall as Cybertron is moving towards its end.  The majority of the bots will be at the deluxe pricepoint - $10 - Bumblebee, Hot Rod, Astrotrain, Starscream.  $20 Voyager - Prime (no trailer) and Nerf gun Megatron  >:(.

I'm sure that there will be more to be announced as the new movie isn't expected to hit till summer of 07.

I saw the Titanium line at Target today.  They have the prices switched on them.  The micros are listed at $14.99 while the bigger ones are priced at $4.99.  Don't know how long this will last, but it might be worth a look.

Heroes of Cybertron are coming back, which is great. Hopefully they rerelease Galvatron, Grimlock, and Devestator. I never found past series 2 at any of my local Walgreens. I hope these don't show only at online stores and drugstores, rather, I hope they're everywhere.

Transformers movie toys! Much spoilerage there, but if you're curious to see what Prime will look like, there he be.

Has anyone found Mirage or Prime Alternators lately? I finally found Meister today, but the other two and Camshaft were, of course, long gone.

I saw a Prime a couple of days ago, but it was a return so I didn't get it. Yesterday I found two Mirages at WM. I almost bought both, but only took one. I've seen Meister quite a bit the last couple of weeks.

I ended up preordering them from BBTS, $90 for all four. I wasn't sure if I wanted Camshaft, but I'll take him.

In other nooz, Classics Ramjet!  And Jetfire!

I found Prime and Mirage only once a week or so ago, and I've been checking everywhere locally for quite some time.  I wasn't willing to fork over the extra cash online.  Still haven't seen Camshaft though...I suppose he's the last release for the Alts this year.
