    Goddammit people can we look at the positive side of things just once?

    Things get really pathetic around here really quick.

    Yes Hasbro there are still those of us who like and appreciate the TF Prime RID Line.

    There are SEVERAL VERY GOOD molds in the TF Prime RID line:

    Voyager Megs

    Deluxe Soundwave

    Deluxe Wheeljack

    Deluxe Vehicon

    Deluxe Ratchet

    Deluxe Terrorcon Cliffjumper EDIT: NOT RID. My Mistake. Takara Release Only.

    Pretty much all of Cyberverse (even though it isn't my cup of tea)

    EDIT: I might have to add Hot Shot to this list. The mold is wrong for Bumblebee but, works as HS.

    I agree with every single example you have presented, even though I'm not itching to buy them all.

    And who knows? Maybe Hasbro will improve in later waves like they did with PCC.

    I'd rather be negative about stuff I'm unsure about. Not liking something only to be surprised when you get it/see better pics is better than hyping something up and then being sorely disappointed. At least if I'm pessimistic there's nowhere to go but up.

    Terrorcon Cliffjumper isn't a RiD figure.


    Still, I agree. Most look great (especially Cyberverse). People are just jealous and angry that they never got to get FE figures, even when the RiD ones might be better.

    My bad.

    Isn't he still being released?

    I wasn't aware that he was a FE figure. I guess that means that we'll never see him?

    It's not that they're too terrible (ignoring the weaponizers), it's just that before any of this, we were given images of FE toys which distorted our perception of RID.

    Takara is releasing him with one of those transforming weapon minicons, IIRC.

    I think he might be getting a Takara release, but I'm not sure.

    But yeah, he was supposed to come out with the FE Vehicon, so I don't think he'll get a non-Takara release.

    Takara is releasing him with a micron figure. I may pick it up just cause of the micron figure, it looks like ravage to me.

    Yup. Some good stuff coming up, mixed with a few poor imitations.

    I can confirm that the TakTomy version is coming out (FE mold) as is Skywarp. Both have pretty cool littl Targetmasters. If I'm honest I may buy a few of the less impressive molds (eg: bumblebee) just for the MICRON Arms guys because I love that they combine into Bigger weapons.

    I am looking forward to some of the Prime toys, like Ratchet. I look forward to what they do with Voyager SKyquake, because he's one of the guys that actually NEEDS a giant, ridiculous, light up, spring loaded weapon... his gattling gun. I am also looking forward to quite a bit of Cyberverse, and all those potentially awesome Generations toys in 2013.

    Replace the zombie Cliff for Arcee and I'd fully agree with you. I'm not one for Cyberverse, (though I do really like Guzzle from DOTM) but they for the most part look like they'd be pretty fun. And I really do hope these all hit retail.

    Most the problems stem from a highly praised and high quality line that unexpectedly became very difficult to complete. Had the PRID line come first everyone would be much more pleased with them. But we have FE Bulkhead in had and see shots of his PRID self...

    But yeah, there are some really good things from my chair. PRID Arcee is going to be my Arcee. This is a case where the reduced size is a bonus. Plus she's quite acurate and looks great in both modes.

    Ratchet looks good. Not amazing but I'll be buying him instantly.

    Wheeljack I already have in hand and really like that figure.

    Soundwave is very solid looking and will be an instant buy when I find him.

    The vehicon looks good in vehicle mode at least. If bot mode holds up as well I'll be buying at least 3 of them.

    I'll probably buy Hot Shot since I don't have that mold and thus would be a completely new character.

    PRID Cliffjumper I might buy to repaint him as Tailgate, thus having Bee, Cliff, and Tailgate each with their own molds.

    Starscream looked okay. The FE looked better but the PRID looked good enough that I wouldn't be upset if I had to settle for it.

    So yeah, PRID does some things right. They are just over shadowed by the things they are doing horribly horribly wrong.

    That's true about SkyQuake. I'd love it if his Target master was a Chaingun/Crab so I could pretend it was a tiny BW Rampage.

    I'm looking forward to Cyberverse stuff, especially Ironhide.

    But I can't even pretend to like the RID stuff.

    This year is summed up with: Too many gimmicks. Not enough quality.

    It looks like a bunch of cheap garbage.

    What pops into mind as something they are doing wrong would be those Voyagers with their ridiculous light up spring loaded weapons. Also, they don't lock, so what's the point?

    Bulkhead's is the worst offender. It looks like it was supposed to integrate into the vehicle mode at some point, since it has headlights and such on it. It's MechTech all over again. I want that gimmick to die.

    I think the problem is the FE's were released first, and promptly cancelled. Hasbro has no clue what "first edition" means. It means the first cases of a new product, not entirely different product from what will be released later on.

    The mainline toys for Prime look pretty cheap, and they are also tiny, so that doesn't help. But look on the bright side, more money for when actually good stuff comes out. You are not obligated to buy everything.
