I had maybe one or two of these as a kid and regretted not getting more into this line... another on this list for my to get now that it's happening.

 

 

the Box set is a win win, for me.

Okay, is this 3.75" scale??  If so, how much?  Man, I really need it for Rom, if this is actually in MU scale.  But it will probably be almost impossible to get for near list price via the internet.

Yes, I am really excited about this. :)

3.75 SCALE from the looks of the re used bucks and the size of Jetfire compared to them.
 
the set is 99.99 I think I read somewhere?
if so that's a great price all things considered for this set of toys
 
 
 
Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $99.99/Available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego)
 
shot, a amazing deal when you realize that Jetfire is worth about 35-40 retail with the older one going for up to 50-60  bucks by himself nowadays. (if not more) So price wise suggested retail for this set is a bargain comparatively speaking. (the scalpers I'm sure will be in full force for this one)[/i][/size][/font][/b]

The writer of the new MASK comic, Brandon Easton just asked IDW if he could change Matt to be black so the black guy could be the main character instead of a sidekick. They said okay since nothing about Matt Tracker was race based. 

 

We got the classic version already so this is some nice modern synergy.

I didn't notice at first that the set also includes some Micronauts figurines.   Cool!  That actually gives me some more characters for my Marvel collection.  (There was a Micronauts Marvel comic in the 70's and 80's, which is where the character of Captain Universe is from.)  Specifically, the characters of Acroyear, Biotron, and Baron Karza.  Unfortunately, I am still missing over half of the Micronauts from the comics: Bug (with his trusty rocket lance), Arcturus Rann, Marionette, Microtron, and from later in the series, Huntarr.  (Huntarr made his debut in an issue that had Nightcrawler as a guest star -- the first comic I had ever read with the X-men in it.)

So that SDCC set is even cooler for me.  Wish me luck in being able to actually score a set from hasbrotoyshop!

After noticing ROM was in the set, Bug was the first thing I looked for. Sad that he's not in the set, but it's really hard for me to complain about this one. It's really well done.

 

Good luck. Good luck to us all. Hopefully they realize that this has cross-over appeal to a large variety of collectors and they produced enough.

I hope so,
Resellers are no joke,
Transformers fans are serious,
GI Joe Fans are serious,
Rom and Micronauts go so well with MU collectors that we may be serious for these too,
(Must have Rom!! Been asking for him for years and many told me it would be impossible for them to ever make one)

And so many of these 80's licenses come with their own fanbases.

I know I want virtually each of these figures in the 1/18th collectible scales....

I already have this Jetfire (favorite Toy from the 80's G1 line)
but having another isn't a bad thing for me either.

I pray they made enough (and the right amount) so people don't need to pay much more than 100 bucks asking price plus shipping and tax (where applicable) to get these.

dragonkings, I have to admit, after reading this thread, I checked an older one with our lists of " 10 dream characters that probably won't get made," and Rom was in fact number one on your list. :)    (He was on my list, too, tied with a couple other characters for the #11 runner-up spot.)

​I really hope that Hasbro doesn't base the quantity for this exclusive on the sales from last year's "Collector's Vault."

​And, yeah, here's wishing all of us luck in scoring a set at list price!

Yeah thanks for noticing,
I been asking for Rom WAY before that also going back to when Vonner was still in charge And ML was still trying to make a comeback.
But to be fair I always thought he was probably a pipe dream too.

Here's to hoping they make these easily available.

Maybe if these are TRULY previews toys then Maybe we will get these individually released later in their own lines with expanded characters in their respective Universes.

i am not too worried about buying this on F5 day since the original news was they would have some specifically for HTS and a convention or two after SDCC. But I will try.

I hope so. I really want that Rom, Tracker, Leoric and the Rest but don't want to spend more than I have to to get them. If it gets to high and is short packed, I'll just try to grab Rom on his own.

They're usually up before lunch, but the Deapool taco truck went up at around 20 after 3pm. Most of us had given up for the day at that point and then, BAM. Hopefully they'll be here within the next hour or so.
