    I mean some of the toys look cool (dreads, ironhide) but most of the toys we have seen so far a really step backwards in the way they look. and there are definitely going to be a lot of shelf warmers IMO.

    idk what do you think?

    nothing unexpected there, I have the interesting feeling the Radicons forum is going to littered with derp of the moon megs touch ups, like it is now with RTS jazz. I am probably not going to purchase any of these unless there is a hella Sideswipe upgrade.. we will see

    Megatron looks great. Ironhide looks great.

    Those are the only two we've seen that look close to being finished products.

    I'm passing on the whole line. Too much third party and other cool stuff I need to spend my money on. I'm not knocking the new movie line but its not exciting to me.

    We really haven't seen much of it. No reason to jump to conclusions without seeing final products.

    Pretty much.

    Megatron looks damn good.

    Ironhide looks fantastic.

    The Legends don't look bad.

    The Human Alliance basics look really interesting.

    The deluxe Starscream is holding some promise so far.

    Everything else isn't even done.

    Really the only thing that looks iffy is that Voyager Prime, and even then we already got the Battle Blades Prime, so why should any of us get our panties in a bunch over this one? If you already have a near perfect version, why would you care about what comes after?

    We've seen all of 3...maybe 4 low quality, poorly photographed figures with possible(probable) mis-transformations on most of them. It's pretty damn ridiculous to write off the entirety of a 2 year+ toyline when we haven't even seen decent pictures of the entire first wave of figures (which often turn out to be some of the worst in the line).

    Going all the way back to the Armada days, Transformer's mainline toys have for the most part gotten better and better, more details, quality, articulation etc etc etc, so I personally will be waiting until more people actually have the toys to really judge how well this line will turn out.

    It's never too early for Transformers to be ruined forever.

    Yeah I'm disappointed...but that's not saying much at all from the very limited photos we've seen. I was disappointed with the TFA line as well and now I have nearly every release possible from Animated.

    I'm not delving too far into the photos we've seen; I'll wait to REALLY judge the toys when they're in my hands.

    Don't count on it, bub. These days, unpainted and unfinished is what Hasbro passes off as shelfworthy material.

    Isn't voyager Prime coming with a trailer? If so then it can't be that bad

    We can't be quick to jump to conclusions after seeing a couple pics. I think this is going to be an ok line. I don't really expect much from it. We'll see some good figures and some bad figures like in any other line . What I am looking forward to is going to be the RTS, and Generations but who knows maybe DOTM we will be ten times better :) rolleyes: Doubt it)But I definetly plan to pick up some the figures like ironhide.

    I think you're just trying to drum up business for your kitbashing service, Jolt Customs.

    I know I am disappointed in this thread. Can't say much for the toyline since we haven't seen nearly any of it.
