    Hardshell, eh? I guess that solves the mystery of the "PERCEPTOR VS HA" listing they found in the Wal-Mart computers. The Robot Heroes are adorable, as usual, and I will buy them all, as usual. But where's the Tigatron vs Inferno pack?

    Man, Cyclonus is one sexy toy - probably the first Classics/Universe figure I'll pick up. Hound is cool as well, but what the hell is wrong with Cheetor? They'll really screwed him up bad. Shame too, his beast mode is sweet.

    Woo, that Cheetor looks awesome! But definately different that the first beast wars rendition. I'd still get it, honestly.

    Thanks! That's quite an unexpected and interesting repaint. When I first saw "Universe Bruticus" I was imagining the G1 character. I'm sure RID Bruticus doesn't mind the upgrade, though.

    Nifty! Poor Cheetor still looks like crap. Those arms just... I hope they're mistransformed.

    However, I've decided I'm only going to be a Classics Series completist, so as cool as Scourge looks (why not just call him Bruticus?), he's gonna end up Beast Wars Series.

    Starscream will definitely replace my current Classics Starscream. :D 

    Vector Prime looks... pretty much like a show accurate version of Vector Prime. I think. It's been a while...

    Oh wow. That Bruticus is a really good upgrade.
    Hound, Cyclonus, Inferno & Swindle look fantastic. However, I can't wait to see what Cheetor looks like properly transformed. And oh GOD, another Classics Seeker I'll have to get...!

    Most of those look amazing. Absolutely love the Scourge as Bruticus. Everyone of the Universe figures are nice. Animated Shockwave would make an excellent Armada Megatron.

    Hey, what about the Star Saber robot heroes pack? That was listed too, wasn't it? Looks like most of the Wal-Mart entries are coming true.. Too bad we didn't get a G1 Scourge though... he'd go great with Galvatron & Cyclonus. Especially if he was a Targetmaster. :D 

    Is it just me, or is Nightstick cyclonus purple now?

    Cool. I'm going to do this picture by picture:

    -Perceptor vs. Hardshell- Looks cool. Didn't actually know about this. Looks like the Insecticons are now complete.
    -Cheetor vs. Tankor- Looks cool, but not for me.
    -Snarl vs. Sharkticon- Looks cool, I might get it.
    -An. Bumblebee- Interesting, probably just a revision with some added details.
    -Blazing Lockdown- Looks cool, but not for me.
    -An. Swindle- Looks cool, I might get him.
    -An. Blurr- Not bad, but not for me.
    -An. Skywarp- Looks great. Looking forward to getting him.
    -An. Shockwave- Looks good, but misstransformed (as usual). Another one I'm looking forward to.
    -Un. Starscream- Looks good. I might actually get this, and then put my current Starscream to use as parts for my Thrust and Soundwave bashes. It's more G1 accurate, but unlike the Henkei one doesn't look bland, and doesn't have any randome chrome to ruin it.
    -Un. Cyclonus- Looks good. One I'll definetly be getting.
    -Un. Hound- Looks great. Another one I'll definetly be getting.
    -Un. Cheetor- Not bad, but not for me.
    -Un. Legends Starscream- Not bad, but not for me.
    -Un. Legends Brawn- Not bad looking, I might get him.
    -Un. Legends Beachcomber- Not bad looking, I might get him too.
    -Un. Legends Bumblebee- Not bad looking either, might get him to add a 6th BB to my collection.
    -Un. Inferno- Looking great. I might or might not get him.
    -Un. Vector Prime- Interesting. I wasn't expecting a repaint at all. I might get him, maybe even a couple for kitbashing more of his origonal 13 bretheren.

    All in all some good pictures, even for being heavily photoshoped stock photos. It'll be interesting to see what else we get out of these two lines.

    Edit: Just saw Bruticus was added:

    -Un. Bruticus. Interesting, not something I'm currently interested in, but it doesn't surprise me he's a repaint of Cybertron Scourge. Might get him just to kitbash into Hun-Gurrr. Then again, I might get him just for the RID reference. Hopefully we get some more updates of RID characters in this line.

    Here's hoping it isn't too long till we get pictures of the two Gestalt repaints.

    Cyclonus looks awesome, he is a must have for sure. Hound and Inferno look really good too.

    Hey, who is that 3 headed Dragon? I see a Predacon symbol on him.

    EDIT: Never mind, saw the answer people put down.

    I MUST have that Cyclonus! How could they get Cyclonus so right, but not Galvatron?

    I absolutely love Hound and Cyclonus. Very nice figs! That new pic of Inferno looks much better than the first one we saw at Comic-Con. Swindle, Shockwave and Blurr are definite buys for me and Predacon Bruticus is sick looking. The RH are pretty cute, but I'm not liking the name changes. It will always be Slag and Bombshell to me.

    Cyclonus is a sexy bitch.

    Hound and Inferno look really good, although something seems kind of off with Hound's head. I really hope Cheetor's shoulders are mistransformed, as they're a glaring problem with an otherwise fantastic figure. I prefer the original Classics Starscream to this new version, but I might pick this one up to kitbash into Thundercracker. I might also consider that new Vector Prime repaint; I love that mold.

    Swindle and Blurr look great. The new Bumblebee has some nice improvements, but not enough to waste $10 on.

    Ok, all the Universe look great. I will probably end up getting all of them. But here are some nitpicks.

    - Hardshell? Snarl instread of Slag? Can't name the Sharkticon Gnaw?

    - Bring back the Basic class and make Brawn and Beachcomber in that class. Legends is too small and just too bleh.

    - I really don't know why they're repainting a Vector Prime as....Vector Prime. Sorry, I know Cybertron was within the last 25 years, but Cybertron isn't that old of a line. They should be left out.

    - Inferno is a fire truck. Where's the ladder? I'd much rather have a ladder than the turret spraying seafoam out of it.

    Cyclonus and Hound are amazing! Inferno looks PIMP. Cheetor looks better here, I think I can see where his arms rotate into proper position. The legends are win, as are the RHs, especially Cheetor/Tankor. Blurr and Swindle both look awesome. Sucks taht SS is just a repaint of the crappy classics mould. Would've liked a new SS with better vehicle mode and more articulation.
