I've been wanting some of those IDW designs we're getting for awhile.
Especially the Bumblebee and Megatron. I'm happy we're getting them.

If you want an idea of how long it takes for them to make a toy based on the fandom's reaction look at Springer. That IS Nick Roche's Last Stand of the Wreckers Springer, and we're getting it how long after the actual book?
Granted, it probably took a while to find a good place to put him, but what I'm saying is you probably shouldn't expect many toys of current ongoing designs until after the next movie.

edit: Also, Listening to this podcast makes me feel like a crazy person.
I don't feel the cheaper plastic quality at all in the FOC stuff.
There certainly is less plastic, but what's there doesn't feel any different to me than what we've been getting,
and I have every mold so far except Grimlock and Starscream.

And overall I'm in Vangelus's camp about them. It's obvious that there's A LOT of cost-cutting, but the engineering/design talent and heart is still there.
I find it interesting to see what they can do with current restrictions. Although it's understandable that people are disappointed with it.

I agree. I just do not understand the complaints people have sometimes. Like how Generations Jazz is hollow in the chest. Why are you even looking in there?

Doesn't all the talk of cost cutting kinda invalidate all the praise given to the movies for bringing so much money into the franchise?

ON the Mass efeect topic

Kaiden deserved to die for being and annoying Whiner about everything shepard did
the Mass Effect 2 cast was Perfect even though and I Agree Jacob was bland.
Vega utter Pointless addition to cast in Mass Effect 3 never chose him as a squadmate

And Thane was freaking Awesome!

Ditto man. All that ranting about FoC Grimlock just made me throw my hands in the air. He's great in my opinion.

I haven't listened yet but I do have to say that Grimlock is extremely hollow and the plastic definitely feels cheaper than normal. It feels like paper.

That being said I still enjoy him quite a bit.

I've read pretty much one thing from IDW, so I can't say I'm totally excited at any possibilities for the generations line.

However, Hasbro, you really ought to make a figure of a certain weapons expert. Bonus points if he has a bullet hole paint app on his head.

Man, the podcast became a real downer when they got to the Generations. I mean I'm not going to argue any of the points,(Cause that's always a futile effort when it comes to the podcasters.) but I actually started laughing out of just how depressing it got.

And I haven't even gotten to the Metroplex bit yet, so this should be interesting.

I do like that Vang is actually happy about the TFA Blitzwing face, after seeing a few people who are so mad about that being on the toy that they don't even want to buy it anymore. Even though you can give him a G1 face, the fact that the TFA face is there tants the figure somehow.
