    It's hard to believe we got a proper Blitzwing ages before we ever saw these.

    Stupid ass Bionicles Transformers....ugh.

    Hasbro - "Ya know, instead of putting out a smaller slate of quality toys with good paint apps and great sculpting and alt modes, how bout we just push out as much bullshit onto the market as possible to take advantage of the hysteria that Michael Bay is creating with his awful TF's movies?!"

    Boardroom - "Does that mean more money because we want that so go ahead as bastardize the entire toy line for more money!"

    You know Bumblebee having a flight based alt. mode makes more sense considering that real bumblebees his namesake can fly.

    Yeah, that's the price you pay for being a fan of a franchise targeted toward children. :D

    I'm very tempted by Soundwave and Wheeljack. Two awesome characters and their build figures look neat enough. I hate that Starscream and Ironhide are relegated to small basics while Bee is a triplechanger as big as Blitzwing (surprise, surprise, Blitzwing isn't offered as a standalone/single figure because of the shelfwarminess of the yellow menace in the same set).

    I do see a lot of parts kitbashing potential with these sets.

    Super excited about these things. The love child of Transfomers and Xevoz? Yes, please.

    From what I've read about these things the only difference between Scout, Elite and Triple Changers is the number of accessory parts in the set (they all have the same basic skeleton). According to the toy fair pics Starscream has 42 and triplechanger Bumblebee has 69. But grab a Wheeljack and Starscream and you'll have around 100 pieces and I'd imagine you'd be able to rig them in to a triplechanger.

    Yeah like I said in the thread when people revealed the second wave, it's amazing how short of a time it takes for people to completely forget seeing things, we saw these quite a while before the Toy Fair.

    I remember the crazies complaining about how they gave us dees Krappy LEGO Bionicle kayohs instud uh da propah BLitzwhing.

    They look nice and maybe will pull people from other properties into Transformers.

    Oh yes and shame on them profiting on a brand that they market and produce to coincide with massive media appeal and multiple outlets (I guess this is what the one guy is calling hysteria) to better draw in their core audience and borderline consumers to make money. (I guess this is the bastardize part?)

    Also, there mommy and daddy are Hasbro so they do indeed have a father.

    I can't wait until these sets get released. I wonder if they will be compatible with the Bionicle/Hero Factory pieces. As a fan of both Transformers and Bionicle/Hero Factory this will be a perfect addition to my collection.
