Thanks mods (probably Ryan) for splitting this into it's own thread.

That's a good classic Jinx figure. Better than the Collector club one.

Good stuff. Most of the vehicles are a pass, as they're pretty much all retreads. Love the Jinx exclusives. I'm digging the Hiss shockwave too.

What are the odds that we see Lady Jay in the movie line? Less than 20%?

Yeah, I know, but this is a movie character that appears (from the Super Bowl ad) to have a good amount of screen time vs Zarana, a character who hasn't seen much action (that I'm aware of) since the time of the vintage line...

Oh, well... I'll be staking out Hasbro's web-store after the show... :(

Oh, cripes.

I wonder if someone could be a dear and let the thread know when/if Jinx goes up as a BBTS preorder?

I am not putting up with another blasted Zarana scenario this year.

The vechile drivers have 5 points of aticulation WTF.

Think I see some of the single figs with only single jointed knees (Zartan for example). seriously WTF

Man the hasbro cutbacks are just getting worse and worse.

Don't get me started on Jinx.

Could they just be prototypes or appear that? There pictures do seem small.

Look around some more, the high res pics went up this afternoon right after the Hasbro reveals. Generalsjoes has them as well as TNI, it's very clear to see the drivers and the lacking articulation on some of the single figs.

In good news the Hiss has better tooling (canopy primarly) and it's definatly Slice in the Ninja Showdown 3-pack, some debate on if Firefly or Beachhead are in the Dojo battle (Leaning to FF myself) and also appears to be a ninja viper or night creeper with it.

The Ghost Hawk is as cool as the small pics made it look too.

I think Zed's right guys. Those drivers don't have knee joints.

That's a rip off, no doubt about it.
