    Why does anyone want that Kickback thing it looks nothing like an Insect it's supposedly from a niche comic series that virtually no one buys so therefore how are you expected to want it if you've never seen it (fans or otherwise). And there's a perfectly good Insecticon needing a toy which has been seen a lot more and by a lot more people: Isn't it frivolous making Kickback before a more visible Insecticon ? The robot mode of Kickback is adequate I suppose but the Insect mode is 'made of fail'. Perhaps they are hoping comic fans will army build it or something?.

    But they should have made this 1st :

    Did anyone notice deluxes are going up to $14.99?

    Other than that, some okay stuff. Nothing very impressive at all.

    Dead end looks cool. Haven't seen season 2 of Prime yet and...well I'm not sure what to make if that thing in the last few pics, but if it's supposed to be an Insecticon then I think I'll just pass on it.

    Why is it that every time the IDW comics are mentioned (and often when they're not) you can do nothing but mindlessly bash them? And more people read them than you think.



    As for Dead End, he looks a lot better now that we have something more than a magazine photo to go by. Probably'll get him.

    That Kickback isn't even from the comics, it's from the game.

    Airachnid = sure
    Dead end = maybe
    Kickback = probably not
    Bumblebee = hell no
    Ultra magnus = yes

    Overall Id say the figures arent too bad, but Hasbro is definitely making a HUGE mistake by releasing that Bumblebee! Im getting Airachnid, my Arcee needs a punching bag too!:ev:

    Airachnid is bought. Only problem is the cockpit behind her head, but maybe that can be fixed. Still no Dreadwing? :(

    Yup. Definitely going to pick him up. Ultra Magnus looks great as well.

    Airachnid... actually looks pretty good. Other than that, I'm not really impressed.

    Arachnid looks...unfinished or something. I'll still buy her. She'll look perfect next to my Prime Skywarp :)

    I'll most likely get arachnid because I have a thing for the spider woman...though I think this toy is a missed opportunity; should have had 4 longer rotor blades (since the blades are her spider legs) to help create her minor 3rd mode where she can walk in her half spider look. Yes I know in the cartoon she has 3 rotor blades but that looks like a gaff on the cgi design teams end (where does her 4th leg go in copter mode???). Since the blades equal spider legs, they should have stuck with the logical form...for the toys sake and for keeping up what is growing to be an iconic look for the spider fem bot. But again, I like the spider girl so once these toys hit a price that is realistic ($9) then I'll get one.

    so. looking at the photos now:

    Cyberverse Magnus and Dreadwing look great

    Botshots stuff: havent started in thie line yet, but most of these look pretty cool. but why is brawl blue? Botcon jetfire and powerglide look intriguing.

    Prime Deadend actually looks pretty good. would like a clear shot of the head though

    Airachnid's bought when i see her at retail (missed out on the BBTS pre-order), just not realy diggin her weapons right out of the gate, but yea. i'll pick her up.

    Not sure what that thing is we see after the photos of the kid dressed up as optimus...
