New Constructibots figures revealed

MTV Geek – Exclusive: Hasbro Reveals 7 New Transformers Construct-Bots

Interesting - Breakdown is basically a G1/Prime hybrid, while Dead End is clearly based on the TFP repaint. And Shockwave looks pretty sweet.
BT Toons - updates Tuesdays and Fridays.

They all look cool (ESPECIALLY SHOCKWAVE), but why does Silverbolt have Wheeljack's head?

It's diversification more than anything. Transformers is a strong brand for Hasbro, so they're using it as a platform to get a foothold in the construction toys market's subsegment that Lego currently owns.

Most of the headsculpts look really good but the bodies are lacking, to put it nicely. It'll be cool to see what kind of bots you can build with a few kits. Hopefully booster sets will be available as well.

Shockwave is definitely superior here as his alt mode actually looks like something other than a jumble of parts. You can definitely the see LEGO HeroFactory influences in these guys.

I totally forgot about these things (or the earlier ones)

When are they supposed to be out, anyway?
