Let's see here.....
Hmm. The Thirteen, eh? Surely to incite all sorts of TF canon wars across the 'net. I-I...umm...can't wait
Still, it could be grand. Well, at least I am interested to see Furmlock's take on Cybertronian history and what not. But the most pleasant news, I thought, was Spotlight: Cosmos. That's just full of, umm, win and stuff. Should be all sorts of quirky fun.
Maximum Dinobots has been delayed until December? Pity.
(edit: Nevermind, I read the wrong solicitation. November it is)

I am genuinely impressed by that Bumblebee costume.
I muuuuuuuust have a Cosmos. Must. Cheetor is a bit iffy, but since I somehow managed to own every other Cheetor figure, and it is an actual honest to Betsy new Beast Wars toy [eeeeeeeeeeeee!], I'll probably pick it up.

That is insane.... But wow... I wish I had the skill to make one of those

Blurr, Swindle, Longarm/Shockwave, Cyclonus... I honestly can't decide which one rocks the most!

Well Cosmos's quirky lil ufo toy back in the day could have used some improvement, but hey, it was a mini spy. just seeing a very un-loved character get some love now (that and he had an awesome sense of humor according to his bio) makes me jump for joy. That and I love UFO tf's lol.

Yeah, Cosmos is one of those I had as a kid, and being there were few flyers on the Autobots side, to have one that also went out into SPACE was a big plus. Definitely picking him up, plus the rest of the Universe Legends (iffy about Megs though, and sans Beachcomber. I still HAVE the one from when I was a kid, and personally I like him over this new one. What can I say?)
Hound w/ Ravage and Cyclonus are definite pick-ups. Hound was a great surprise, but Ravage on top of that?
With all the different mediums, new and old, it really is a fun time to be a Transformers fan.

I only recently acquired Cosmos at a Toy Expo and while I wasn't exactly impressed, he amused me muchmuch.
to you, sir. for the nonCosmosnoLoveFest. And for inspiring random capitalisation. Cause, y'know, that was totally you.
... And he is round. I like round things.
I'm also aiming for the Hound, now that I get a look at it. The Ravage looks nifty. Cliffjumper interests me as well, for reasons I can't fathom...

They add tar, this is certain. It might be because he is red. Or short... I'm not sure. But it has to be one or the other, this mindless attraction has to have some source, yes?
Maybe it's the fact that his recklessness often leads to blow-outs.

Literal blow-outs. As my name, Cliffjumper, suggests.
I really hope some Marvel editor got shot for that one...

I think the name Aimless suits you better.

I think you're both just ****ed. But that's less a name, more a state...
Fred. You're both Fred. This is the news forum, goddamit...

I was Illyria for a while, so in my case it's very probable.

Back on topic before I start smoking.

I'm not so sure of the Ironhide mold. I like the look, but not so sure about the hands, and every time they show him he always seems to be looking down. Plus the vehicle mode (I know it's still a prototype, but...) seems to have a lot of gaps.

The big guess at the Joe board I frequent is that since Hasbro owns Kenner they're using the Trakker figure to gauge interest in a MASK line. If it's not that, then someone was a fan and GI Joe is the best place to put a MASK agent.

Wasn't Matt Trakker decided upon in a fan poll conducted by Hasbro?
