    Three of THIRTY?

    So when all is said and done the Platinum subline of Generations is going to be THIRTY bizarre fanservice retools of larger figures?

    Is this old news? Did the Omega packaging have this all along?

    That's a good point there... does "3 of 30" refer to the Platinum series, or to the "Thrilling 30" subline?

    The question is "of 30 what?" 30 Platinum figures, or 30 "Thrilling 30" figures, or what exactly?

    Given right now there's two other Platinum figures that have been released, which would make this 3 of 30 in the Platinum series, it makes one wonder - especially given they've only been releasing them at the rate of a few a year. That implies a VERY long term plan re: Platinum.

    30 figures in the entire line, eh?

    I doubt they actually made plans for all 30. They seem to be releasing 2 per year(if you count Bruticus vs Grimlock as 1 and this year's second), so they might've just decided on a cutoff number for the future. And with only 2 per year, this'll be a 15-year line.

    A carrying handle added to the packaging? Really? What do they think people are gonna do with this?

    I think that would be a good thing It also would make me consider obtaining that Energon Optimus Prime

    It's a collector-targeted item. So they think people will leave it in the box.

    Does it count as 2 per year? Omega/YOTS Prime were both 2013 releases as well; and we don't know what's up with Masterpiece yet. I'm wondering if they'll fold those into the Premium line as well.
