    Granted I can buy them at a only mildly ludicrous price, this line seems to be the perfect opportunity for me to catch up since I\'ve only just started to focus on building a Bayverse collection.

    These all look pretty awesome. I'm actually tempted to get Jetfire and Lockdown, now. I probably won't, especially since I'd have to buy a separate Lockdown to get the regular head and facegun but I'm certainly tempted. It's also really cool that there's a super release of the ROTF version of Leader Prime, to go along with Jetfire.

    The movie accurate versions of TLK toys are pretty neat, but as I've never watched the movie, aren't that tempting. Bee's a huge letdown, as this release really should've fixed his mix-matched legs. I'm kinda torn on Hound. I like the more accurate vehicle, but dislike that it removes the option for his cool missile launcher look, by removing the actual missile launchers, especially since I already have AOE Hound, so I don't need that toy's weapons.

    I'd love for that to get a more accurate colour scheme.

    Is it just me or is the grey plastic of MB-14 TLK Megatron lighter than that of Hasbro's TLK Leader Megatron?

    I'll take the BB hammer and the back/truck cap of Hounds alt mode. WTF is up with the pink accessories that are totally inaccurate for NP?

    They need to include a normal Prime head with Nemesis for the heck of it.  Maybe even Merlin\'s staff

    He doesn't have the axe or the shield in the film, so they can make them any color they want right?

    TAKARA REVEALS OUT OF NOWHERE, LIKE WHAT.
    This is just nice! Lockdown with more accesories, Bumblebee with a few more details and his hammer, Megs with his scar, Hound with a movie accurate shield/vehicle piece and the guns from his AOE fig? Reissues of old toys?

    Heck yes to all of that!

    You know, for "the best" movie line figures I would have thought they'd do the HA Jazz. I really need to pick one up....

    Can't wait to pay premium price for the toys we should have gotten in the first place!

    Only one I will be getting is the TLK bee, cause the hammer is badass and they actually put his blaster on the arm that it's been on for 10 GODDAMN YEARS. And also I've never owned that mold before.

    Is anyone else really getting sick of the rotf Prime mold? I've owned two of them but I feel like it gets rereleased every year. Especially now that I have MPM-04.

    They get Bumblebee\'s cannon on the correct arm, but they switch from yellow back over to the orangish paint. Ahhhhhhhh!!!!

    Either arm detaches and you can replace it with the cannon.

    Lockdown looks great. Makes me want the retail AoE as well, so I can have them side by side...

    Yeah, I kind of want that too, but I'm thinking IF i get takara hound, I'll find a loose US hound and just steal the weapons from him to make one badass version.

    The front-page news article forgot to mention that Hound also comes with (some of?) his AOE toy weapons.

    Please fix.
