    I wonder if Dreadwing can fit in the Sky Claw since it's clearly based on his ship from Loose Cannons and in his colours.

    Assuming that a Commander can fit into something like the Jackhammer, I'm sure it would be possible?

    This Apex Armor and McDonalds Breakdown are the only Prime stuff I want this year so far. Toy Fair'll probably change that though :D

    Snagging both of these although I was hoping to get Airachnid and regular Smokescreen first.

    Why waste the apex armor on a bad remodeling with bad colors and with a dead figure that is too small in scale as is?

    In the Toys R Us in Emeryville, CA I found a pair of Deluxe Prime Hunters: Soundwave with Ravage. In the Toys R Us in Pinole, CA I found a pair of Deluxe Prime hunters Wheeljack.

    I did not pick these up. They might still be there. I am very disappointed with this Prime "Kibble" line. The figures are even smaller than the Fall of Cybertron line. The packaging is also smaller, and at first I thought they were the Scout or maybe Cyberverse Series. Then I scanned them and they came up Deluxe and priced at $16. It's ridiculous.

    That Skyclaw looks like it superseeds Jackie's ship - which is a shame as I'd liked to have seen both at the same time.

    If you read all the toy bios's you can kind of infer that the ship is part of the weapons Hoard Bee finds and it's how the Autobots get home when Ratchet has blown up the ground Bridge by overextending it to send Optimus to Wheeljack and Bee's rescue.

    I would guess he cobbles together another one after the base one gets a small messa dropped on it.
    Alternatively Smokescreen may find it some place himself and rush to the rescue in it.

    I'm speaking in toy bio terms here though and none of this may be in the show.

    I'm looking forward to both The new armour's claws look really good. I do think it's a shame they removed the light up feature though - especially considering how cheap and LED is.

    But since the Cyberverse figures no longer have glowy weapons I guess they didn't see the point retaining that feature. But it does suggest if last years vehicles get reworked they might loose the electronics which would be a shame.

    I'm really looking forward to the video reviews of both of those Cyberverse vehicles they both look like lots of fun.

    I just hope that if/when someone reviews them they can remember to check to see if they feature the attachment bars the Dark of the Moon Cyberverse stuff had.

    Apex Hunter sounds a bit like Apex Predator.

    Sorry, but you erroneously thought they were the tiny Cyberverse so I can't trust your judgment that the figures and even the packaging is smaller than the FoC line.

    And, so what if the packaging is smaller. Is that even worth complaining about?

    Hunh, interesting package change. Almost no clear window at all. All you can see is the included legion fig. Can't even see the actual toys.

    How exactly would one retool a Deluxe into a Scout-sized figure? Chop it in half? *Ponders*

    You know something...that's a good question.

    Yay,Apex armour set! Hopefully they don't slap a 39 euro price tag on those like they did with the previous cyberverse vehicles.

    Anyone have the price on the Bot Shot launchers yet? Looks like 6.49 but want to make sure because that's way reasonable compared to how much the previous launchers were at Target.
