    Seems Lazerback and Twinstrike are supporting a more Beast Wars-ish Predacon insignia than Predaking. Huh......wonder what the deal is with that.

    I like some of the toys but I'm not sure if I really like where the prime series is going with this.

    Having a hard time getting behind any of these. I like Lazerback, but otherwise everything's just too cluttered and spikey.

    Omega Supreme has a new claw-hand that looks more like the War for Cybertron version. Also, this figure has an actual headsculpt in lieu of a Headmaster component. Although I love the *masters, I really think I prefer seeing Omega done this way. Not too big on Fattimus Prime... but damn that Omega looks good.

    I need to see it in person, but Omega's head look much too small.

    I quite like Twinstrike because of the Sinnertwin homage but I've been mostly avoiding Prime these days.

    I doubt a lot of these are going to actualy show up in the show, pretty sure it's just a way to sell more figures, but I do hope laserbeak shows up eventually :D

    Oof, not really digging these Beast Hunter designs. Hopefully these are toy only, and not the direction the show is going in. Probably going to need that Omega Supreme.

    Most badass mainline hype. I've ever seen, I'm really digging this new spin on Prime. Its so classic Transformers toyetic I'm having fun just looking at it.
    The beast homages are fantastic. Twinstrike is totally the G1 terrorcon sinnertwin.

    Cyberverse blackarchnia. I did not think that would happen. But wow. maybe Hasbro planned for the economy to bounce back and their new molds are back with a vengeance.

    That deluxe bumblebee is the coolest prime bee. I really like the play feature of the missiles/arrows being stored on his back in robot mode. On the legion the face is'nt as recognizable as the character were familiar with but on the deluxe the face is still expressive of prime bumblebee.
    The style for the upgraded autobot and decepticon characters reminds me of revenge of the fallen voyager recon ironhide.

    I question why Prime Soundwave needs a ravage though. Maybe for tracking the beasts?

    Cyberverse Breakdown with Apex Armor is really epic fiercesome and toxitron like.

    If Hasbro has some voyager beast hunters breakdown with these crazy armor and weapons upgrades ready. Even if he has to be green. I think that would be a welcome addition. Maybe he's Juiced on Synth Energon. The writers did say it would return in season 3. That would add a whole extra angle to silas breakdown as an experiment with knockout's blend of synth En. Wonder if Predaking's predacons are fighting the Decepticons as well. That would justify the third faction symbol more.

    I laughed really hard when I saw the retooled roadbuster inspired Bulkhead Retool.
    But I still want it. Stylish Headgear.

    Are they in fact ditching the headmaster gimmick on Omega Supreme?
