    No way Powerglide can be legends. Too complex looking and articulated.

    Meh, It feels like the movie line is slipping away.

    At least the Prime toys are looking promising.

    this shows a very clear look to the side of Ultimate Primes box, which you can clearly see that the trailer is at least some type of drone bot gallery/hasbro/hasbro-extra/IMG_1470. Wonder if that means this will or will not show up in the movie though.

    Aside from Cyberverse, I'm pretty much done with the movie line. Just as well, as the non-Cyberverse toys aren't interesting me one bit.

    Feeling the same way myself. I like some of the Deluxes, Megatron, Shockwave and Sentinel, but Hasbro has really pushed the envelope so far beyond the bounds with Cyberverse it is incredible and I honestly hope that it can break away and become an ongoing subline once Dark of the Moon is over.

    I've added that Powerglide to my must buy list. I think it'll fit into my Classics collection a lot better than the Ultra Class one.

    Yeah it is. The line is looking very tired and bland. Cyberverse has injected the only real excitement for these toys.

    More toys + huge feature-filled toys + more versions of popular characters + virtually no previous movie molds used + non-movie characters getting fancy new molds because they are popular with fans + new gimmicks and unprecedented level of cross-figure interactivity + Leader molds without much-hated electronics boxes + not what I personally want = "slipping away."

    Not that I blame anybody for not buying what they don't want, but it's rather misleading terminology. o_0

    You are waaaaay overstating the importance of all of that. For example, you make the assumption that new mold = good mold. We all know that's not true. I assume non-movie is referring to the likes of Powerglide, who is in the very refreshing section of movie toys - Cyberverse. I'm not sure what you mean with unprecedented cross figure interactivity. Leader molds without electronics isn't something in itself to be excited about.

    Yeah, everyone will buy the cool fire truck. Yeah, everyone will buy not-Masterpiece Ironhide. But the big picture is more and more fans are feeling ready to move on based on the line thus far.

    just remember that the big picture of fans is but a small part of the big big picture. i think.

    i don't think those commanders are scouts, rather an intermediate sizeclass between scouts and legends. they look like they make more use of swivels than scouts (normally ball joint heaven), but have more articulation than your general legend.

    If powerglide is scout, then that means there are scout versions of blackout and megs?
