Bumblebee, along with Prime, is a flagship character that Hasbro and retailers want to be on the shelves at all times.

If it gets us Henkei coneheads, video game toys, a new Seaspray, etc. in the shuffle, so be it.

In a strange move for a Movie based figure, TakaraTomy's just released Autobot Alliance Human Alliance Jazz and Captain Lennox varies from the recently released Hasbro version. The differences are mostly minor, but the most notable differences are Hasbro's has a clear blue visor, clear blue windows, copper/brown hands and joints, and silver around the fog lights, while TakaraTomy's has a brown visor, clear colorless windows, black hands and joints, and black detail around the fog lights. Also Hasbro's Lennox is dressed in light gray to match his outfit at the end of the first film while TakaraTomy's is in dark green seemingly to match the outfit he wore in the second film. TakaraTomy's changes to Jazz try to mimic the movie and realistic Soltice car more while Hasbro's offers some more visual variety than TakaraTomy's.

I like the look of the deluxes. Jazz and Scourge especially.

That is pretty funny. Thought they'd learnt their lesson with Dinobot combiner from Energon.

It's times like these I'm glad that my "Buy all Dinobot toys that are based on the original five and are inorganic" also had the clause "that I don't reckon are rubbish."

Which basically lets me be an obsessive completist without being silly about it.

Thunderwing looks a bit cack as well, a shame as I really wanted that one to be good.

Jazz and Windcharger look amazing. That Legends Megatron look neat as well. That Tracks also look buyable. Grapple's also not bad--love the segmented tow attachment.

The rest? The PCC Dinobots are laughable, Thunderwing is disappointing, Perceptor's arms are too small, while I'm praying that Scourge is mistransformed/misassembled.

The way Fracas (assuming that's what it's supposed to be) is stuck to his wing in robot mode doesn't look right at least. I'm not sure about the logic of a bright blue stealth bomber either.

There's a Fracas? -goes back to see pictures-

The shoulders and arms look misassembled/mistransformed at least. It might be a decent figure, but I'll reserve judgment for the figure itself.

There's nearly always a fracas when it comes to who likes/dislikes which new toy!

For my part, Jazz, Grapple & Scourge are must buys, while Tracks & Windcharger will need closer investigation.

New Scourge isn't a Targetmaster. No Fracas.

It's all part of Hasbro's elaborate plan to buy two Cycloni in order to get a second Nightstick.

Hah, more fool them as every time I act it out I'd have to buy a new Cyclonus and Nightstick afterwards anyway.

Perceptor is a WHAT? If they can't make a microscope or don't want to, there should be something else better. That made me want to grab the reissue now.

I wholeheartedly agree. I'll probably have to ask my wife too. Might also have to sneak Perceptor in there too, though I'll need to see some clearer shots before pulling the trigger on that one...

But damn am I excited for Grapple!!!!

New toys are always good, but Jazz? I mean, sur ehe's popular, but have we not had a definitive Jazz yet? I think I'm just sick of him/indifferent to another Jazz. Windcharger looks ok, if a bit generic, Grapple looks the most fun out of all of them for me. Definetly one I'd think about buying.

I don't mind Perceptor's alt mode, looks suitable, changing into a giant microscope was always a bit hammy for a scientist anyway. Perceptor was hard as nails in the US Marvel Comic and his microscope mode was something of a big old cannon wasn't it?

Arms look a bit mis-transformed/short on him though.

I won't lie, that Dinobot monstrosity looks awesome, if I can't have frenzy Rumble's masterpiece then that will have to do!
