Wow.

Sorry, but these look like pure garbage.

Ah well. More money saved for the god tier Generations stuff.
agentSAP2006
um, not sure what to say.
Fasttrack
They couldn't even add a little extra articulation!?
Sammael
Sinnertwin and Cutthroat are not that bad.
Ravenxl7
Bumblebee and Smokescreen look pretty bad up-scaled like that, but I think the Predacons fared pretty well. If they announce the other three needed to form Abominus, I might actually get them. If these are decently priced I might even get Smokescreen just to display him in alt-mode.
Paladin
Its only stock photos but yeah, not very good for Deluxes.
Valkysas
Well.

These are shit.

If they do all the terrorcons, I might... no. no. Still too terrible.

And these are going to be BIGGER deluxes than we've gotten recently, so that just...

Fuck. Bye Prime line, you had a good run, and now you're dead.
Power12354
Ok, I can see what they're doing, and I'm ok with that. But personally it doesn't interest me much... Unless they make upscales of all the legion Terrorcons. And they still combined. I would probably buy that.
SAF7
So I was thinking at first that the "Deluxe" part of the news post was a mistake. But then I noticed the shoulder and hip joints being pinned joints (like FOC Starscream) instead of ball joints.



Yyyeah, don't think I'll be getting these. Unless they make the rest of the Terrorcons. Then I'll buy them for super sized Abominus.


EDIT: Wait, it looks like the combiner pegs are gone. Welp.
SPLIT LIP
These look terrible. How big are they? They can't possibly be actual deluxe sized?

Man the Prime line stinks.

I'm....Actually disapointed...I get what they were trying to do to make them easier for the kids but they couldve at least added more articulation to them escpailly to the Predacons. I may get Twinstrike and Windrazor but even they aren't being appealing to me.
Transbot90210
These are deluxes? Wow upgrades cyberverse does not work well at all. They could have added an extra joint here and there.

Easy pass.

On second thought I MAY bite on the beasts. I am a sucker for beast bots.
Ribieconvoy
Wow. It's amazing how there can be so much goodness revealed along with so much crap. These are disgraceful, something I'd expect from knock off companies.
bignick1693
I'll just stick with the cyberverse versions.
Shockwave9227
No thank you.
TheGame2K5
Kids may like easier transformations but they probably prefer figures to have elbow joints just as much. These look like ass and a ripoff if they are deluxe size/priced.
C888
Windrazor looks like he might have elbows... no wait they're stuck like that. Definite pass.
Philip164
Hasbro, I like the Cyberverse stuff because they are cost effective little toys, not because they are simple.

Not only do you guys just needlessly up-scaled $5 toys, but you add nothing, but you take away the ports to the combiner.

Hasbro, your just poring salt to an open wound now.
Stardust262
These...these are terrible.
Angelwave
Yikes......never got into the line...and apparently never will. (thank you Hasbro for the money-saving favor)
General Magnus
Meh.

The sad part is probably the only TFs were getting in Portugal. But Im already used to buy the Generations stuff online.
kaijuguy19
I don't understand why they could've just added more articulation to them as well as slighty dfferent transformation schemes? I mean that's what the RID Voyager Magnus did and he turned out great because of it!
Weitat1988
man those upsized legions autobots looks pretty bad
only twinstrike and airrazor looks alright/passable as deluxe due to their busy looking beast mode
like many others said I prob only buy those "terror"cons if they release all of em and able to combine to abominus nuff said
barrelks
I don't see this idea lasting too long.
Mechafire
The Prime line is quite interesting to look at. It's a textbook case of de-evolution.

Seriously. We started with the awesome FE stuff, and now look what we're getting. Inflated Legions.

It's like the Iron Man 3 line all over again.

RIP Prime line.
PlanckEpoch
If the rest of the Terrorcons come out and they still combine like the Legion scale guys, then I'll bite. If not...then fuck this shit...than god for Generations.
Shatterblast
I just...there are no words. Just...why? I have a hard time believing these will sell at a deluxe price point.
Gryph
I understand these are aimed directly at children, and not us, but doing it with beast hunters seems like a bad call. The predacons were becoming quite popular.
SenatorRatbat
These look awful.

Thank god we have generations.

Apparently they are going to be bigger than current Deluxes...
WWELORD
it looks like Twinstrike's combiner pegs are gone
SG Roadbuster
no new articulation? really? these are literally upscale legion toys? HARD FUCKING PASS. THIS WILL NOT GET MY MONEY HASBRO

Oh wow. You're right.

This entire thing fucking blows.
Philip164
They don't combine anymore!

It makes sense because Prime and Beast Hunters is the line aimed for kids. I think the fact that you don't see this shit happening in Generations really shows that they're trying to get at...simplified BH stuff for kids, then adult collectors and fans get Generations.

Not that I mind. Hasbro has been making it increasingly easy for me to skip BH stuff.
payres
Hasbro's been looking to cut costs everywhere - see the more limited articulation SW figures.

A simpler TF I could have handled but these dearly need elbows, knees and wrists.
Bountyan
Man these look awful.
DecepticusPrime
so do i try to hunt down the last 3 for legion abominus or are we getting a deluxe combiner with these? did anyonr ask hasbro why these are upscaled legions with no joins or anything added?
Dirge121
Yikes, this is not a good road to go down.

I would have been in on the Terrorcons for giant Abominus but if they cut out the combiner pegs what in the hell is even the point. I might jump on Rippersnapper if they made one though.
General Magnus
Welp, I was giving the benefit of the doubt..until I saw the pictures...lol

Maybe this is a way of saving funds to the Generations line?

They can't combine.
kaijuguy19
I seriosuly hope they don't contuine this trend of oversimplifying the mainline toys for both TF4 and the new TF show next year because if they do count me out!
Sideways77
They really did knockoff-styled upsizings?

I... I just- wow.
SAF7
You know what? Give me an Air Vehicon, and maybe we'll talk about these Hasbro. Otherwise, nope.
Stryker055
Those sure are bigger Legion toys.
megatronski
These don't even belong in the same Franchise (Transformers as a whole) that the new generations are in. These belong on a Dollar Store shelf.
Rumblestorm
This is what happens when people whine too much about how the PRIME line "sucks".
You wanted crappy, we just got crappy.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse -_-
Barricade24
I think someone made a mistake. These look like Cyberverse figures not deluxes.
