    CIV chatter and revalations (Merged thread) ALL CIV Hasbro stuff goes here!

    More fun from Hasbro and this amazing line that they want to hype, but don't want to just give us at retail.

    TFW2005.com posted this scan of the new Comic-Con magazine, which lists Hasbro's exclusives.

    There's also a "501st Legion: R2-KT." No idea what that is, but I'll wager it's a repainted R2 unit. May be cool, may be stupid.

    In other news, Alternator Rodimus [Prime] looks to be an all-new sculpt (or at least a new import from Takara). There's also a Titanium Menasor, which is rumored to be a black repaint of Titanium Rodimus (because a gigantic robot made of a tractor-trailer and four race cars looks so much like a futuristic sportscar/truck ).

    Marvel Legends will have a She-Hulk (repaint?) and Stan Lee. And we already know about the Pimp Daddy Destro(s).

    So, with at least four of the exclusives being new sculpts, this is a new approach to exclusives for Hasbro. I guess Nemesis Prime and Stormtrooper with 501st Logo didn't do as well as planned?

    Yeah, all these stupid exclusives are driving me batty! According to my pals who sent in the spy report, there's also an exclusive Shadow Biker Scout with bike in the exclusives display for Hasbro: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index...._articleid=861

    BTW, Rodimus there is just a repaint of Mirage. And you're right, Titanium Menasor is just 6" Titanium Rodimus Prime in black & purple - lame!

    According to Galactichunter's site "R2-KT is a spunky pink Astromech Droid named after Katie Johnson (the daughter of the 501st founder, Albin Johnson)."

    Hasbro revealed pics of R2-KT today at CIV, and he looks like an easy pass. I think they've officially saturated the market with useless droid repaints.

    And, since the info says that they've already given a donation to the Make a Wish Foundation, the proceeds would be going to charity.

    But not quite as saturated as the useless trooper repaints.
