Huh. That strikes me as odd that there's not a must-have TF for SDCC. Though, I guess the reissues weren't must haves either - and with Blaster leaking out elsewhere, I can see why they stopped it.

I still haven't made a decision on prime toys. I'm really bummed that Grapple ended up being a repeat of Inferno. I'm trying to be good about what I spend money on and TF will probably be on the short end of the stick again.

It perturbs me though (at myself). I've got this reoccurring fascination with jumping in and blowing money on TFs every few years.

Sorry for taking so long to reply.

I actually appreciate the lack of must-have TFs at SDCC, and it’s much more preferable to (and almost the opposite of) Mattel’s “You’re not a real fan if you don’t come to SDCC” attendee only exclusive hand-outs. That way you don’t feel bad about missing out on something.

The Prime toys are starting to look like Animated 2.0, with a lot of articulation. In terms of Grapple being a retool of Inferno, that was to be expected. In G1 Grapple was a retool of Inferno and I believe they shared similar animation models in the cartoon.

In terms of jumping in every few years, they do make some excellent and must-have TFs from time to time.

Transformers Prime Deluxe Wave 3 and Voyager Official Images

http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-new ... es-172926/

Voyager Bulkhead – Looks amazing. They managed to pull off his chest transformation. Comes with his wrecking ball.

Voyager Optimus Prime – Also awesome. Comes with his sword and blaster.

Terrorcon (Zombie) Cliffjumper – Looks good. Stated to be mis-transformed as the chest can separate slide up higher on the body. Normal Cliffjumper coming in deluxe wave 2.

Vehicon - Looks good as well.

Bulkhead! I don't know why I love him so much, but I do...

Cliffjumper is purty cool, I'd prolly wait on his regular version though. Poor fella.

I'm honoured that you consider me the local IAT canadian ambassador! Your also welcome about the poutine bit!

So, what do you think of some of the prime stuff?

In the show he's a likable character as well as being fairly show acurate. I didn't think about this until now but because the wrecking ball pegs into the back his hand, he technically has his arm cannon as well.

Transformers Prime Voyagers in Person Shots @ SDCC 2011 plus Cliffjumper reveal

http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-new ... 11-172936/

More images of the Prime figures Bulkhead, Optimus and vehicon drone in and out of packaging. Voyagers will be packaged in robot mode. Bulkhead can peg his wrecking ball into either forearm, meaning both arms can technically turn into cannons.

They also revealed Cliffjumper (standare version)!

Cliffjumper (standard version) – Has flip out gatling cannons for both arms. Chances are zombie Cliffjumper will have this feature as well.
