    I'm assuming we're supposed to have front and back instead of two back shots of each?

    Are there front-side pics for Thor, Carnage, and War Machine? The news article currently has the cardback images duplicated for each.

    EDIT: NGW beat me.

    'Bout time we get decent Hummer TF. Too bad this is the way we get though.

    Captain America and Thor look great. Might get at least one of each for kitbash fodder. Like the rest of the line, they look to be about Voyager class size, if just a little smaller. The other two aren't bad either, but neither peak my interest all that much.

    ...the Heck? Why is War Machine called Iron Man?

    My guess that either this is still test packaging, or they couldn't get the name War Machine.

    Or it might be because the Powers That Be decided that "War Machine" is to... warlike?

    Plus, hey, Iron Man = popular, War Machine = Why does that guy look like Iron Man?

    It's for the kids!

    Exactly what I was thinking. "War Machine" is a bit harsh sounding... and for a hero, no less. Especially when you're trying to convince a well-meaning dad, aunt or grandmother that it's a good positive toy for the kids. "War" is not nearly an abstract enough concept in these dark days... has some negative connotations, y'all.

    Though I am a bit surprised they didn't go with "Stealth Armor Iron Man" or something like that.

    He looks great though... I love the almost completely black alt mode.

    Thor's alt mode color scheme is hideous.

    Hasbro still uses "Beast Wars series" on its relevant Universe packaging all the time, I don't see why "war" would suddenly become a bad word.

    Do want War Machine, I didnt get Iron Man and this looks much better.
    Carnage too, but he looks far too plain.

    Very true, but I'm literally frightened by the prospect that this may be the best A-10-based Transformer toy yet seen.

    I'm lookin' at the thing and thinkin' "Damn, why couldn't YOU have been Powerglide?!"

    Star Wars Clone Wars also.

    War is inherently an unpleasant word, but I agree it's not necessarily one that kids need to be protected from. However the term "War Machine" particularly in context with a "heroic" character, really has a bad ring to it. It doesn't imply a heroic struggle so much as an automated murder device with no other purpose. "Iron Man" has a much friendlier ring in a household where daddy got his legs blown off by a landmine I should think. Just sayin'.

    Incidentally, Beast Wars was retitled as "Beasties!" for Canadian television. No joke. For the record, I don't consider that an improvement. :p

    Ugh, Thor...

    On one hand the engineering is brilliant and the sculpt looks great in both modes.
    On the other hand...
    Those alt mode colors are AWFUL!

    Will buy. Will repaint.

    Ditto. I'll be repainting two of Thor as Powerglide and the COBRA Rattler, and Captain America as Prime. Cap'n might make a good Megatron too since that's what I was hoping for in the Alts line after Hasbro got the Hummer license and then afterwards disappointed all of us.

    I thought that was fairly common knowledge among TF fans.

    Another Mainframe CGI TV production got the same treatment: War Planets was called Shadow Raiders in Canada.
