    I can't stress enough how awesome it is that we're getting design notes on Hasbro.com itself.

    Yeah, I love how Hasbro has been doing that lately to many of the new figures coming out from the Universe Classics, and movie toylines..

    They could really impress and post teasers of new TF:A toys after their respective episodes have aired.

    Yes, of toys not being released until JUNE! When are they going to learn? It hurts a toyline when there are no corresponding shows, and it hurts the show when there isn't an associated toyline. The two should've been released simultaneously.

    Cool notes for the Deluxes. I like that Grindcore is based on one of Sixbuilder's Micromasters. Too bad they didn't give him his blue shovel.

    well grindcore is based on a micromaster. That's a surprise Here we thought he was either based on beast machines 2: auto ripper or generation 2: clench

    Allspark power deluxes forever!

    Design notes are cool. I kinda don't like that 5-pack because the only figure that is signifigantly different seems to be Battle Damage Jazz.

    I like the Micromaster designs for the deluxes.

    You know, Walky and the WIIGIIs are largely responsible for Big Daddy here being made, as Joe Kyde is good friends with them.

    Actually, I've thought he was based on a Micromaster from the get-go... I just assumed he was supposed to be a green Groundpounder (makes way more sense than Crush-Bull, but whatever).
    Anyways, nice to see the design notes, and hope they continue this in the future.

    Obviously they couldn't fit the launchers into the car, and Hasbro likes the ability to store all of a toy's accessories into their alternate mode if possible. Just remove the launchers from car mode if you don't like them like that.

    Wow, CRUSH-BULL? Talk about obscure homages. Even I had to look that one up.

    Damn, Crushbull is one of the cooler Micromasters too, have to get him now.

    I didn't even connect Jolt with his Laser-rod name sake, one of my favorite laser rods.

    I did pick up Jolt and Big Daddy, both quite cool toys.

    Damn Laser-rods and Micromaster were my favorite line, now I gotta get these. Still thinking of avoiding that Thundercracker mold like the plague...

    Grindcore's head makes me wonder what would've happened to Hot Rod if he wasn't so fast n reckless. XP
