    I only have four Prime toys but I like them. Bulkhead could've been better but I'm just glad I finally have him in my possession. Fucker took me months to find, along with Arcee. Regarding the latter, my only complaint is the back kibble but she makes up for that with her fun, easy transformation and detailing.

    The Transformers: Prime toy line is mediocre to me. It really needs some new life. Sure, we've gotten a few good figures from it, but there's not much of a "push" to promote it from the ends of Hasbro and/or retailers. It's a continuation of DotM - it's just "there".

    Generations may be good once it really gets going again. I'm excited to see the Asian exclusives, but I have a fear that we won't get much else for a while after those. It's almost borderline in suffering from the same fate as I detailed above.

    I get the same exact feeling about classics...

    But the love should move on to Masterpiece Toys. It's about time Hasbro/Takara fight back. Classics just attracts more 3rd party than anything. I really don't mind if Hasbro/Takara is taking this step.

    It's time to move on. I hope to hit that sweet spot on selling the collection before everyone else does the same...

    I foresee the Masterpiece line being that shift from TakaraTomy anyways. It will be interesting to see how Hasbro responds with their plans for Generations.

    History repeating itself. Probably more repaints. Milking it even drier. Like Alternators.

    Not for me. I prefer smaller pieces; the only MP I have is Skywarp and I never even pick him up. All he does is still on the shelf and stare at me.

    See I am the same way. The TF Prime line is mediocre like you said. The toys are smaller for thier price point. Bulkhead, when in vehicle mode looks no bigger than a classics deluxe. Thye have somegood ideas, but the paint schemes also suck.

    I love the Generations line, cant wait for the new wave to start hitting.

    Um, the Classics toys sell to kids (the target demographic) well and make Hasbro money, so why should they "move on"? Because of high-priced IP theft toys? lolno. I need to find that sig that has the speech about who these toys are meant for, and sig it myself.
