Dit Boss, Sunstorm and Skyquake look nice.

Aw, dang it.... Cliffjumper is a new-style Bot Shot. I was planning to skip all the new-style ones. But there isn't an old-style version of Cliffjumper. Hmph.

I don't know about these new molds. Those spin shots are rather uh stupid I have to admit. Probably fun to mess with, but display wise ugh. Not sure about flipshots either, there are flipshots in there right? I like shockwave, but those colors I just don't know.

One of those bees might make a pretty good base for unicron though.

Not really digging the new design either. Not sure why you'd mess with a winning formula.

Probably just collect the normal mold super bots from here on out. No need for those other strange flip/spin designs. Don't play the game, so I don't really care.

That one (jump shot? Flip shot?) Bumblebee mold looks better suited to Cliffjumper - so of course they paint a mold that looks more like Bumblebee red.

Yeah... one of the Bumblebees definitely has a Cliffjumper head, while CJ himself has a Bumblebee-shaped head.

Kinda boggles my mind.

I don't like where this line is going.

I should have all of the new sets on hand in the next few days...love botshots!

Initially I was happy to get a few BotShots for my son, but thankfully he's over them now.
Maximal Dinobot
Thanks for the images.

Don't like all the brown on Shockwave.

Definitely passing on angry Bumblebees but I like super Skyquake. That green looks nice with the clear.

Saw the Bumblebee and I thought "Hey, maybe the new Optimus's feet won't be as giant as I thought. They're really bad... kinda ruins him for me. He was the one I wanted most for being completely G1. I mean, did his feet have to be so large?

Do Optimus's arms stay up? That might be another big point against him and his gimmick.

Other than Sunstorm, BotShots has effectively killed BotShots for me.
Shark Jumper
Bot Shots are $5 at Target now, and that bugs me a bit.
I don't like these new ones too much they look cheaper than before. Like Happy Meal toy cheap... I'd probably get Cliffjumper, maybe new Shockwave, and Ironhide (sad the older mold didn't get LEAST ONE RED REPAINT).
bigpink
Anyone else feel like HasTak missed the boat on the launchers? I mean they could have done them up in the Battle Station modes of Metroplex, MetroTitan, Trypticon, Fort Max, Brave Max, Grand Max, Scorpinok, and Black Zarack. So sad.

God i am not likeing these new designs

The jumpshot Shockwave is f'n boss. I set him off a bunch of times in this vid, he jumps high.

Vlog - The Vlog Featuring Jumpshot Botshots Shockwave - January 25 2013 - YouTube

Jump ahead to 2:35 after the first minute for more of him popping off.
CrockAlley
I love the new arms and legs on Jump Shots. They look way better than the originals. Problem is, they look too different. I have all the Bot Shots so far, and these new guys don't fit in. It seems too disconnected. And some of the faces seem a little crazy. And the Spin Shots are a "No." I don't know if I can get into them.
Th0r4z1n3
I'm all over that Sunstorm & Skyquake...I just hope they show up at retail, the local TF sections are looking pretty scary around here lately.
Shark Jumper
This line is already super fail if we don't get a Jumpshot Springer.

Well shoot that convinced me on Shockwave at least. Still can't say the same for the other figures in the line though. The combination of those odd expressions and the gimmicks really kills it for me the more I think of it.

I'm just going to write them off and stick with whatever regular releases they come out with in the future.

Flip Shot Bumblebee is pretty cool, he does a backflip before landing on his feet when he transforms.

I was going to get single Shockwave anyway but it was cool to see the gimmick in action. I'm starting to think spin shots have to have their arms up all the time which disappoints me as Optimus was the only other Bot Shot I really wanted this time. I agree that if the Spin and Flip figures were other characters, I might've gone for them. MORE Bumblebee? Another Brawl? Another Ironhide? They should've just made a red repaint last series. Hoping for Soundwave and Wheeljack at some point.

The more I look at them, the more I wish they didn't use the game's designs. They're a bit goofy and don't quite fit in with the last series. Oh well, good thing I only wanted the expressionless Optimus and Shockwave. Now, to wait for Wheeljack and Soundwave who also happen to not have a mouth.

Okay I'm sold on the jump shots thanks! But the spinners still are a no
robo_rob
I can't wait for these. That new Bumblebee looks great and I've been wanting a new Mudboss for some time now. By the time this line is over, I'll have a money bin full of them and swim in them daily. Occasionally stopping when something pinches me.
Diamondback
Anyone heard anything about rumors for Street date on these guys? Personally, I never even saw a Wave 5 Super Shockwave on shelves... while another TFW'er has one he's holding for me I woulda picked up a second "just to be sure".

That Video is less than 4 Minutes long and I still didn't get to the end... It's actually shot to close to see anything anyway.

Anyway back to the subject in hand.

Yellow Cliffjumper deliberate or development / factory mistake with the 1st wave no one cared enough to correct ?

Imagine it as a 1984 G1 toy tribute!

surprised no one has posted the pix for the 5 sets yet....at least I haven't seen them on here. TrUs has them for $22. A bit high I think.

Well if you'd actually watched it till the end the camera is pulled back to show the full flip action.

Atleast Dirt Boss is Cybertron based.
