    Have to agree with Crim here. I remember someone trying to insinuate that it was okay for Legends Shockwave to have clear parts because the original toy did. That is not the case.

    Clear plastic not only takes away from the "cartoon" look of the toys, but it also makes parts more susceptible to breakage. Frailty is an objective flaw on a product meant for children and handling like transformation.

    Praying for all painted decals instead of cheap budget cut stickers.

    It isn't a retool, but both Cerebros and Orion BackPax have giant backpacks.

    That's where you're wrong my friend. You just need to be willing to shell out $3500 for a good 3D printer plus the cost of materials. The hollowness is just about design and print function, which are both fixable.

    As someone who went to Hascon and saw them in person, they're not really that bad. The CGI renders always exaggerate things to an unrealistic level. But if the clear plastic is a deal breaker for you, then either wait for the Takara versions (which will be show accurate) or just wait for the new versions they will inevitably make in about a decade or less (more likely less if they sell well).

    All in all, I'm excited for the new line. Having Orion Pax's head become the trailer hitch is pretty funny to me and I'm excited despite the back of his cab being kind of a mess. Plus Volcanicus looks stupidly awesome, I love it!

    I nominate you to produce this series. BTW, the dead bots can come back a la Ironhide's return in IDW. Backup copies of their sparks.

    Here is my idea: The Quintesson's actually took all of the Autobots out of the Mausoleum in order to use them as zombie guinea pigs so they could perfect their method of re-animation before using it on Optimus Prime.

    Remember, Daniel never saw their bodies, just their gravestones. The Quints revived all of the fallen Autobots from the Battle of Autobot City and in the years since these Autobots have been half-dead/half-alive zombies being stored in a Quintesson "Nightmare Hall" type of facility. The Quintesson that properly revived Optimus Prime discloses the existence of this facility and the Autobots lead a rescue mission to retrieve them and shut this research facility down.

    Ironhide, Ratchet, Prowl, Brawn, Huffer, Wheeljack, and Windcharger are all rescued and then brought back to Autobot City in an attempt to formally bring them back to life.

    While not fully alive, they are not really dead either. They are in an advanced catatonic state and with the help of the Quintesson that revived Prime (who is now an Ambassador and is working to bring peace between the Quints and their TF children) they succeed to bringing them back from the dead. Kup and Ironhide go out and get shit faced and overcharge on Energon while the Dinobots and Technobots throw a "Welcome Back" Father/Grandfather party for Wheeljack and Ratchet.

    Remember, these are TECHNICALLY speaking the only (7) Autobots we see that died (Other than Optimus Prime). Yes, yes, I know, I know - there are storyboards of Red Alert, Tracks and such dying and we all know that we never saw Bluestreak, Sunstreaker, and Hound in season 3 but going with just these (7) known characters makes for a nice core group of characters to bring back. (And yes, yes, Windcharger appeared in "Call of the Primitives" as an animation error, Brawn appeared in "Carnage in C-Minor" and Prowl appeared in Headmasters)

    Have you seen the works he's being doing without Dini and Bernett? He has peaked.

    I never said they had to have or should have the transparent pieces. Just that it was a callback to the old figures. I personally don't give two shits what they come out looking like because I don't plan on buying any of these, except for Optimus maybe like I stated.

    Hasbro has consistently to gone downhill in quality in recent years. I lived through G1 once already I tire of seeing the repeats from Hasbro and 3rd parties constantly trying to one up one another with the endless deluge of G1 characters. It's unimaginative. I rather see some of the other lines get some updated figures.
