Found this at Target today...
Optimus, bee and starscream are very IDW-ish, while megs and soundwave are G1-ish.
I really want a megatron toy of that design.
Looks to be another tank.
soundwave looks alot like his current idw body.
He is - First Look At My Busy Book Transformers Edition And Figures - Transformers News - TFW2005:
And the SUV alt-mode would explain the tires on the back of Soundwave's legs.
On that note, I'd be up for a Voyager-class version of that Soundwave. Especially if it has a deployer gimmick.
Liking where this is heading. Not sure if I'll buy in...my collection is tucking down to pretty much JUST Generations now...but my son may dig it.
Out of curiosity -- what section of Target (candy, toys, or the wall near registers with the magic/sports cards)?
That reminds me a lot of this soundwave.
I'm increasingly confident these are the new show's designs. I can't see them making theses new character designs and using them multiple times without something larger in mind, and these seem to fit the bill.
Huh, I'm actually really into these designs? Def excited to see what kind of toys we get from these. Hopefully in terms of quality they'll skew more towards current generations/the more recent RiD toys as opposed to the earlier RiD stuff.
(Also, weirdly glad to see some noses again? The no nose thing was fine, but at this point the cartoons have had them all mostly noseless for like, a decade, so a change from that is certainly welcome)
I found them in the toy isle but YMMV.
These designs are pretty boring honestly. It feels like a step down from Prime or Animated, which both tried something new in their Starscream and Soundwave designs, and even the UT had more original ideas for characters, like trying an Optimus Prime without the window-chest. Maybe it\'s just the style, but none of these stand out to me whatsoever.
Still really digging that Optimus design, but megs looks great too.
I'm disappointed that he's a tank, again. I think jet suits him much better.
This really looks promising, except they are still trying to make Bumblebee into Sideswipe/Prowl/Hot Rod, something he's not and will never be. Lose the door wings and the warrior vibe - his design lacks character, much like he does now. Boring, stereotypical, and unappealing.
I love the other 4 though.
If these are not the new toon designs, then I think that, at the very least, Hasbro might be testing the waters to see how we respond. Personally, I don't hate these at all. In fact, I am intrigued. Obviously there seems to be a return to G1 with some IDW influence as well. If these designs are supported (and support) a truly inspired, intelligent, quality toon with a heart and soul and a genuine understanding and fondness for the history of the franchise and the characters, then, I will truly be happy.
Yeah, it doesn't seem like a coincidence that two different companies with two different products would be getting the same art work...
Starscream would look good if it wasn't for his ridiculous big wings he could use as sled that's first thing I see when I look at strascream it's distracting for his bot mode hate see his jet mode
