Megatronus also comes with Bomb-Burst, a Wave 3 Prime Master. I think they're different decos, though, with Bomb-Burst's being solid, and Blast-off's being translucent.

I'm not impressed with the Predacons. They just gave the 4 limb cons giant backpacks so Razorclaw didn't have to form very much of Predaking's torso. It's like they form Razorclaw's Evolution...

I saw a similarly packaged Prowl at Walgreens tonight on Valley St in Manchester, NH. The box was about Voyager sized, but opaque, so I don't know how big the figure is. It transformed in 6 steps. ...

If some kitbasher had done this to a Silverbolt to make a Hun-Grr, I'd think it was brilliant. As official product, it's a bit of a let down.

The beast mode pic shows some stuff on the underside...

I've seen one pic comparing Hun-grr to a Silverbolt fan mode, and they look pretty similar, complete with bot-heels forming the lower jaws. I don't know if the fan mode was done before or after the...

Not just an odd gimmick, but one that seems to require a significant design compromise (an opening chest compartment) for not much added fun/play value (there's a purple thing inside instead of a...

I'm looking forward to Beachcomber, since you'll actually be able to see the Titan Master riding him. Brawn and Roadburn are great, but you can't see their drivers.

Jazz's vehicle mode looks like...

A local chain here in RI, USA has Last Knight Premier Optimus & Grimlock Voyagers for US$30 each, US$5 more than TR Voyagers go for. However, TR Voyagers have pretty chintzy looking stickers while...

I agree about stuff feeling old before I'd even seen it. Sometimes, actually opening and playing with the figure seemed more like an epilogue to the toy's story than the main focus.

MP pricing may be Hasbro overreacting to that one time they tried to give fans a bargain by selling Soundwave for US$120. Scalpers grabbed most of the stock and sold it on-line; fans still paid high...

They're pronounced the same, but spelled differently. You're gonna want to wait until they make a Soundwave that turns into a fish.

That mold looks OK for Blaster, but not great for Soundwave. ...

I agree about that being a decent mass release, but a poor exclusive. If this is going to cost more than a regular figure, they could have at least replaced Rook's claw thing with a harpoon.

So far, I count 39 CW Deluxes using a grand total of 10 molds (VL= Victorion Limb):

HELICOPTER (5): Alpha Bravo, Blades, Vortex*, VL1, VL2
HARRIER (5): Fireflight G1 & G2, Slingshot G1 & G2,...

Monstructor should probably follow the inner-robots to recreate the color scheme of G1 combiner look. There's some wiggle room in design, though. Icepick's inner robot is one of those vague bipeds....

Or Monstructor. If they do any beast gestalt, they'll probably do all of them to increase the possibilities of retools, like Wildfly from Cutthroat. The Pretender Monster legs were vague bipeds, so...

I'd considered skipping red Optimus in hopes of a white repaint, but I'm glad I didn't. I hoped the stand-alone bot would resemble Ultra Magnus' cab bot, and the combined mode would resemble UM's...

Maybe a griffin for Birdbrain for Monstructor. Slog as the Lengends class chest armor would recreate the G1 look. Granted, BB was beast to bot, not beast to vehicle. But, given the need for...

I think Brake-Neck's just a bad photo. Other pics make his colors look pretty decent. I am a bit bummed that they based him off the Dead-End version of the mold. If BN had been based on the...

Thanks, Warcry. I did pick up CW Optimus. There's some minor QC issues with the paint, a small spot of grey in the midst of red, and two bubles on the roof. Other than that, he's a decent figure...

I'm on the fence about CW Optimus. There's been a lot of conjecture about extra limb-bots, like Masquerade repaints or Slingshot. Have any of these been confirmed for US retail? I'm more likely to...

Another thing bugging me about Devestator is the wheels being just plastic mounted to plastic instead of pins. The pinless TFs I have (including Dragstrip) don't seem to roll as well.

I think they'd leave Groove as a motorcycle they can retool into Afterburner. I certainly hope that 4 out 5 Protectobots aren't just Stunticon retools. Some mold reuse is understandable, but they'd...
