I just received this list of solicitations and United Refelctor and Hardhead are listed as upcoming toys in the United line.

United running alongside Generations? I remain skeptical.

Still, if it means Japanese fans can finally get a Black Shadow...for more than it would cost to get a fellow fan to buy one at Marshall's and ship it there, but still.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I imagine in this case United = Takara's Generations.

Note that there are separate listings for Arms Micron Shockwave and "United Shockwave".

If true I'm excited that someone is finally doing these.

This also makes me think that the wave after the Wreckers from Hasbro may include them since Takara's Generations has been mirroring Hasbro's minus the handling of Shockwave (though that may change if United Shockwave is any indication).

Also looks like Thundertron is getting a release in Arms Micron as well as the Deluxe Optimus again.

I do wonder if Reflector & Hardhead might be TransformersAsia.com only releases like the Seeker set or no?

United Swindle at a voyager price point is pretty random. Also, wonder what "Preview Optimus Prime Re-Do" at the deluxe price point is?

Huh. Interesting if true

Fingers crossed for this. I'm not eager to own Warpath as Hardhead - I'm satisfied with the Wal-Mart exclusive repaint of Onslaught from years ago - but Perceptor as Reflector? I'm all over that.

He's listed at the same price as the other Deluxes, isn't he? He, Starscream, Reflector, and Hardhead are 109, while the Voyager stuff like Cylas Breakdown are 149.

Other than Grimlock (Gremlock) that is.

Yup. And United Deluxes aren't to be confused with Arms Micron Deluxes:

United Deluxes 109
Arms Micron Deluxes 74

Of course that makes the 109-priced "Gremrock" very interesting.

S'probably just another redeco of the Classics mold. If they can do others a billion times, why not him.

UPDATE:

Okay, I just realized this could be Universe Dinobot as BW Grimlock, and I may have just soiled my pants.

Buying three Reflectors at $10-15 wasn't bad, but buying three at ~$40 is going to hurt. But it must be done.

Hm. The filling out of the back-end of Prime is... interesting to say the least.

I'm really OK with Reflector being one guy if he's an update and a half track.

Don't count on it guys.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.
