To be honest, Brend, I have no idea what's going on with the toys anymore. Right now it seems like anything could happen - they've made a new Sky Lynx, for God's sake! We're through the looking-glass here.

Yay! Decepticons! I'll have a go with those, as and when.

Mmm, tentatively interested. And likely to look better than Computron.

To be honest I've just preordered the first two TFC BreastForce guys, so I'm pretty much nonplussed.

But it's cool that they're going this route. Like, completely insane and unpredictable, but cool.

Fun times.

Is it me or does Computron's head look slightly different than the standalone?

Here's the soundwave version of the upcoming headmaster blaster.

...that looks awful. Thankfully, I have MP Soundwave, so I can ignore this. Hooray!

Yeah, I'm all in for the combiners, so the Headmasters line will be a chance for me to ease off on the spending! I have the legends Buzzsaw (bought that entire wave just to get a Shockwave) and it is terrible.

That mould looks just as bad as Soundwave as it does as Blaster...

I really don't understand why everyone is suddenly a Headmaster and why Soundwave or Blaster would be huge and turn in to bases as well as... cassette boom boxes?!?!?

It's because they've turned up the... BASE... levels.

That's what's called a joke. You see it works on the premise that they have music-related alt modes and "base" is pronounced the same as "bass". I know right. Oh you don't need to thank me. A well executed pun is its own reword.

Ha.

Also, some people are considering Groove's inclusion and Rook's exclusion on the official website as a tease that the deluxe figure will be released outside of Japan.

I fully expect that the US release of the Groove mold will be in a garishly colored G2 Defensor set.

Has this already been seen? Titan line Blurr...

If these are deluxes, wouldn't the heads be a choking hazard?

Wow... That is hideous... (Guess the colours are probably the big problem, so maybe Takara will do him better?)

As to the heads being a choking hazard, I guess it depends on the intended age range? Mainline Transformers seem to be going up in age, while becoming simpler and more childish in design... Not sure those are compatible marketing strategies in the long-term...

Quite like it personally and it's still a blurry preview.

I think the heads/figures are more the size of voyager Brainstorm... hard to tell from photos, but given that the weapons will have 5mm posts... sort of an in-between?

Liking the fact they've done a Skullcruncher slightly more than the mould itself, but I'm game for an army of the four (including the two 3P ones) that'll have been released.

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. They're boxy robots that turn into actual boxes. How hard is this?

Galvatron has a big grey cockpit-looking thing on his back that just hangs below his cannon mode. Maybe there's a third mode?

They also seem to have given up on hiding the gaps in the forearms where the hands fold away. I understand that sometimes there's not much choice, but Galvatron has those tank treads on his elbows. They should've been able to put the hand gap on the underside of the arm, and have the tread fold up to cover it.

The headmasters look decent, and are characters I don't have, so I'll probably pick them up.
