    I keep saying to myself, you don't need a new line to collect. But then I keep seeing these pictures taken by all the peeps on here and they all make then look really good.

    So the question is, how good are they really? Are all of them good? How is the transformation? The Articulation looks great. Is it? What ever else you want to feed in would be fine.

    I know that prime bothers me a little. I feel like his chest is a cop out. Just straight across like that. Looks like the Matrix is inside a toaster oven. But Bee and Arcee look great. Also love what Cliff Jumper looks like.

    So torn. Please help!

    Well almost nobody knows how they really are, but a lot of people are looking forward to the Prime line. If you enjoy the show I would say at least pick up a few of your favorite characters.

    Well if you've read the reviews you should have an idea on what to expect from them.

    As for me I just look at the pretty pictures and drool, I cannot wait for this line!

    Man, I just saw this Megatron picture. I think this alone is going to make me buy this line. Holy shit he is awesome.

    I just wonder if this is the Takara paint job. Paint looks a little to nice for Hasbro:

    I've picked up the sdcc optimus prime and the nycc set from hasbro toy shop. I think they're great. Love the design and the articulation is really good. BB looks the most show accurate but arcee is my favorite right now, even with the weird backpack in robot mode. I'm ready to sell all of my dotm stuff to make room for the new line.

    I am looking at the news of these things.

    So to get this straight, they will be in the Cyberverse commander wave and the Robots in Disguise wave? No release dates yet right?

    I picked up two of the nycc sets and opened one just to check out the quality of the figures since the main line is not out yet. this is just what ive come across with the ones i have and is only my opinion..... the figures out of the package seemed kind of lightweight and not very solid but held there alt forms very well. i felt as if i was going to breack something during transformation especially on bees front clip under his headlights and arcees legs when positioning her feet forward. when all is done though they are well designed representations of there show counterparts and i dont regret my purchase. i do want a more in scale set though, arcee stands a little taller than bee in bot mode and is kind of large for her alt mode.

    There are plenty of reviews on youtube of the NYCC two pack and Peaguhoweveryouspellhisname has a review of deluxe Starscream.

    tl:dr version, this toy line will be fantastic.

    Now I see different pictures. I see the Hasbro images and the guns are that tacky see through Red or Blue or whatever. Is that finalized?

    I saw a review where Starscream had real colored missles, not that tacky see through red plastic like weapon they used for energon line.

    Do we know which ones will be the official weapons? The see through plastic or the solid?

    Those are for cyberverse. Deluxe and voyagers so far have normal weapons.

    i think the ones with the transparent colored plastic is the legend/cyberverse type figures not deluxe or larger.
