Now that Wheeljack has been officially confirmed and grey prototype shown, I could not be happier. He looks awesome. And 3rd Party groups are already planning more accessories for him, like the Immobilizer, A dinobot brain and the cannon that blew up in his face when he tried to shoot Megatron with it.
Masterpiece Sideswipe turned out ot be a super-fave toy although I had no interest in the character, and the Datsun mold (I got Prowl) is super-sweet too. I get these things right from Takara in Japan, and now that there is a hard rumor that Hasbro will sell Prowl in the US for more than he goes for in Japan, I'm happy that I did. We'll see how that actually shakes out but for the most part, Hasbro can suck it. Trying to buy TRU exclusives is a huge pain in the rear and I'd rather just go to HLJ or something and buy them from Japan. Plus, who the hell are Acidstorm and Sunstorm? (I know who they are, nobodies. No-name characters when they could be selling Starscream or Skywarp on the new MP-11 mold)
