    Those look cool, but was hoping for something more closer to the original style boxes.

    Very nice! It is good to see the original "Transformers" font on a non-reissue box. Just waiting for BBTS to put up a preorder, I WILL be buying cases of these guys!

    I concur. Looks nice, but would prefer classic style packaging for the Classics line.

    Nice! Glad they kept something similar to the Cybertron packages. The colours look really nice, very dark and scary.

    But are they "collector" friendly?

    Made me think of the Gi Joe crosover with those boxes for some reasons...
    But otherwise I'd rather see the real deal on the shelf.

    Lookin' good. The original font looks so much better than the RID-present font. This package prooves it. Good design all-around.

    Expensive little buggers, aren't they? :p

    I agree. I like the mre serious tone that the colors imply. It would be nice if there was a serious and important plot to go along with the line.

    I too would have preferred boxes... and the classic grid pattern, but its looking good.

    Looks like those are some expensive Deluxes. :(

    YES!!! the REAL TF logo, how i've missed you.
    snazzy, in my mind i was hoping for something a little G1ish, but those are undeniably sharp (and the Cyb packaging i think is the most sophisticated and well done TF packaging we've ever got, and this just improves on it...)

    ...maybe gridlines in the red are behind the logo would have been a classy throwback...

    $14.50 and $22.75 hmmm prices are going up. Those of us who are cynical might wonder if Hasbro are increaing the price a little to take advantage of the nostalgia factor.

    Not me though. I'd never think like that.

    Can't wait for some brain donor to get the wrong end of the stick and report Crumplezone as part of the Classics line.



    You mean the type of packaging where someone can buy the toy, tamper with it, and then return it for a refund???

    These are prices for comic retailers, not big box stores. This scan is from Previews Magazine. Target, TRU etc will not have prices this high.

    I'm a little worried about the "Available ONLY for USA, Canada, Us territories and UK". :confused:

    The shipping to limited countries concern is also only due to the fact that this is in Previews. Diamond only ships to the countries listed. This is a magazine for comic retailers and the price and shipping info only pertains to their retailers.

    Im actualli looking forward to seeing these toys. I have some Cybertron and Beast Wars stuff, but I am mainly a fan of the G1 line. Anyway, I think these might be a nice blend of toylines.
