    That was partially my intended message but I was at work and can't start writing and looking up things there as much as I like. As for the originality. Well look at CW wave 1+2 deluxe they have 8 molds total. After that everything is a retool/repaint. Wave 1+3+6 of the voyagers give respectively 2+1+1 new mold. Thats 4 total. The leaders have 2 new molds being Megs and Ultra Magnus. Rest is repainted seekers and the Armada Megs. Legends has like 8 new molds being the most diverse. The really shocking truth really is that the deluxes have 8 unique molds in the entire line.
    TR has far more and so will PoTP.
    PoTP if you bluntly say that Slag and Sludge are retooled and exclude the 2 Decepticon jets. They have it far better spread out. 3 unique ones in wave 1, 3 in wave 2. We already know 3 bots for wave 3 of which 2 are new. bringing it to 8. And that is only knowing half the line. The extensive retools done for the 2 decepticon jets as well as the totally different look for the dinos make this wave much more pleasing to the eye they blunt straight up repaints with a new head. Cutthroat for example shares part of the transformation with swoop but is more like what slugslinger is to triggerhappy. Rather than dead end to Streetwise. No matter how you look at it it is purely a reshell while Swoop and Cutthroat look significantly different.

    This new Hun-gurrr is very uninspiring. Hasbro might as well re-issued the original figure from 1987.

    Yes and you can leave them off. Grab a sheet of generic faction stickers and use those. Keeping your sheet intact for collectors purpose. Stickers peeling is the dread that returned. No matter how careful you are they will peel.

    About Elita One having a muscular-like body, I actually really like her because of that, but the thing is that she makes Classics OP look puny in comparison.

    So I don't hate the figure, and she looks far better than SS

    Sorry my inner paleontologist got worked up at somebody calling him a “dino”. I’m not a fan of the small legs either but the figure looks great to me still. Who knows, maybe Perfect Effect will make new ones for him in their inveitable Abominus kit.

    As far as I'm concerned the line after PotP could just be the exact same list of characters of the Prime Wars trilogy, but with actually updated and somewhat realistic alt modes; I would love to see an updated Abominus design, man!

    also, we are in mid February and wave 2 is out, at this rate I think people shouldn't worry about PotP having just 4 waves 'cause if that was the case it would end in June or something like that... or maybe is just me that sees things getting faster!?

    Honestly wouldn't mind this. Already was a pretty big fan of what they did to the Stunticons' vehicle modes during Combiner Wars, and after all this 1980s goodness it would be swell to have versions of the characters that wouldn't make us go "What the hell?" if we were to see it across the street. Liberties with beast modes could even enable them to be somewhat menacing instead of some of these dorks.
