Sweet.

EDIT: Dear god, the rapeface on that Ironhide.

Awesome. The Polar Assault team is already out with the Stunticons, but the rest is all new!

The Dirt Boss pack is pretty cool looking, and I really want to know who makes up the Autobot Air Force. Will it be the 5 Aerialbots, or will Jetfire and some other bots sneak in there?

It shows on the back of the box!

That is a partially new I've not seen the half Orange Shockwave the "Aerialbots" (in all but name) or a jump shot Bee holding a gun - only a Flipshot Bee.

I never thought they'd do a Superbots SkyQuake as he'd look so much like acid Storm but the did him anyway.

Jump-shot Bee reminds me a lot of the Playskool Gobot Muscle car.

Nice to see a better look at Flipshot Brawl (Nice he's green too) Dirt Boss is kind of funny - makes me wonder if he will only be made in Superbot form though.

I like that there's a Flipshot cliffjumper and a Jumpshot bee it give people more choice and makes them different mould if you choose to buy the minimal number. (Though obviously there is a flipshot bee too).

That some seem to have improved arm movement is really nice too.

Super pleased to see them I hope the retailers keep stocking them in 2013.

Oh and theres this too :

Flipshot Bumblebee (Note he's a different mould to the existing one and to the one in the set with Shockwave):

great, thanks!

Pretty awesome job by Hasbro of giving us some counterparts to the Stunticons right away.
ORIO
Ironhide's a spin shot, shockwave a jump shot and sunstorm a superbot. Interesting!
IaconStargazer
I was originally wondering if I should get the Stunticon five-pack - now that there's news of an Aerialbot set, the answer to both subgroups is an enthusiastic Yes!

(Not really interested in those 3-packs and new types of transformations, though.)
starscream-99
Hmmmmmmm might have to go back and pick up the Stunticons.
rattraprules98
Dirtboss is such a random guy to throw in, I love it.
bny888
I want all of them!
Grimlockimus
Call me when they do a Dinobot 5-pack
Bountyan
Gonna get Aerialbots and Sunstorm.

Brawl seems to be getting a lot of Bot Shot toys for some reason...

Brawl is the Decepticon version of Bumblebee. Face it, man.
Shark Jumper
I'd like to see Bot Shots Dinobots or some how Beast Wars. I don't care if they are animals on wheels for a alt mode. Rattrap would kinda work.
bookwormdalek
Oh dear God, just what we need, more shelf warming botshots taking up space at the Walmart.....
Dinobot Nuva
So down for that Brawl 3-pack.
Fallout
how many brawls are we going to get?
LamboTwinLove
Still waiting for a Sideswipe and a Sunstreaker...

I was momentarily excited by the prospect of the Almost-Aerialbots, but they just aren't close enough to the characters Classic looks to trigger the nostalgia effect in me and make them must owns.

These look like they're probably decently fun little toys too fiddle with, as earlier botshots were, but not quite strong enough in variety and homage-osity to win me back from Kreons for my cute little TF needs.

Btw does it feel weird to anyone else that they use "Aerialbots" on the Kreons but not here? I don't have time to check right now but was Quickslinger the rename Slingshot got for the Kreons too? I think so. Same with Firestrike/Fight.

The package art makes Silverbolt look G2 blue. Cute.


-ZacWilliam, feels a bit bad for Airrazor, Slimgshot's onetime replacement. Gone for good I expect. Also, darn it but I wish Sky Dive's colors were closer to G1. I love that look and I miss seeing it here.

I was going to mention how random the Cybertron Dirt Boss homage was.

They all look good, I'll likely end up getting most of them.
Nope
Oh God yesssssssssss.

Dirt Boss, like, what the hell, really? Not that I mind, though. he looks really awesome and maybe this means we'll get more obscure guys.

I need to get the Dirt Boss/Cliffjumper/Brawl pack, Sunstorm, and the Aerialbots. I don't really want the latter group, but I have to get every character. That makes me happy about that new Skyquake which is basically a darker Acid Storm - it means that I won't have to buy that set. Granted, I still need the original Skyquake, but still.

That one would be our fourth Brawl, although it's also a new mold. Kinda weird, though. Why couldn't they call the other ones Quake or Flywheels or something, rather than giving us four Brawls?
Bumblebee3
Seen the Skyquake set at my Walmart didnt know it was new?
Nope

You sure it wasn't this instead?

Here's another new one:

*sees name, thinks Combaticons*

*follows link, no Combaticons*

*sees colors, thinks Predacons*

*zooms in, no Predacons*

Still cool though, might repurpose as them anyway.
ZacWilliam
I really wish they'd given the new teams proper names. Silly or not I'd be much more interested in Polarbots and Infernocons than in these prosaically named squads.

-ZacWilliam, the little sliver of extra effort just would have made them feel more like real teams and more interesting fictionally.

As a sucker for Orange Decepticons, I approve of this!

Dat Sunstorm...
Dinobot Nuva
Mmm, that Decepticon fire team looks boss too.

Hey thx I must have missed that one!
BB Shockwave
I wonder if this line will ever consist of more then endless repaints of the same 5-6 molds...

No-one buys these, btw. They are pegwarming everywhere in Hungary. I really wish they wouldn't have killed off Robot Heroes - that stuff dissappeared off pegs in weeks - for this.
bumblebeeprime2
love the new shockwave!!!! it looks like he is articulated!!! so cool im buying him! only!
Feralstorm
I'll get sunstorm. Bot Shots has so far been the quickest and cheapest means to a large seeker jet collection.

Ironhide looks fun. Everything about him exudes "douchebag".

I know there's only so many Bot Shot jets to work with, but couldn't they at least let Air Raid be one of the F-15-ish jets in dark colors?

Thanks, I figured there ought to be another 5-pack out there to go with the AirForce/Aerialbots.

Those are some pretty orange-ish looking versions of Shockwave and Barricade.

Regarding the re-names, yes, that red/black Starscream really should have been named Thrust instead. Perfect opportunity missed.
WhiteMocha
....another Brawl? What does that make, four? Couldn't have made him Quake or something...?

Ah well, the rest look nice. Good to finally see Cliffjumper and Sunstorm showing up. And the Decepticon fire team looks interesting.

Still, the rest look nice. Good to finally see Cliffjumper and Sunstorm showing up. And the Decepticon fire team looks interesting. And even though I've never cared much about the Aerialbots, my interest skyrockets when I see they have two little Powerglide repaints in the mix.

I know right Ive been waiting for a cliffjumper forever it seems so many damn bees.
Grimlock_13
The set with Cliffjumper, Sunstorm and the Aerialbots are buys. I don't really care for the flippers and spinners or whatever the next generation Botshots are called.
KaguyaHouraisan
Looks great. And finally shockwave is sold seperately.
Sovietbot
BS "SG" decepticons?

Maximal Dinobot
Hmm, from what I can tell the new Shockwaves aren't repaints of the chase one. I'm still looking for a chase but can anyone confirm if these Shockwaves are new and unique molds from previous ones?

Not crazy about these new ones unless there's more in the assortment. Could use some more different characters instead of Brawl and Bumblebee... Haven't warmed up to Bot Shots yet but still want chase Shockwave. I am looking forward to new gimmicks like the articulation and jump shots though so I'll see about those.

I'm not celebrating until we get word of official release. I already got the Stunticons and Polar Assault Team.

That said, DO WANT.
