    Well, they're already putting a massive amount of their budget towards making the Predacons. I expect they simply don't have enough left over.

    Some people actually do think it works like that.

    Does Bulkhead appearing on the cross-sell alongside the other BH Deluxe's imply that he will also be at that size class? If so... me no likey. He needs to be Voyager or no deal. Scale would be all screwed up! And thankfully scale is something that Hasbro seems to be getting right currently, so would suck to see them backslide on BH.

    Otherwise, I think Screamy looks great all 'beasted out'. I'm really digging BH Soundwave, crazy colors and all, so hopefully Starscream will similarly impress in hand.

    I don't get it... If the Decepticons sicced the Predacons on the Autobots... Why do the Decepticons need to be all Mad Max'd out?

    hmmm he almost looks like Swoop, maybe we can get a custom Prime Swoop from this, but with that, the only figure I plan on getting is Smokescreen

    You know, Wave 2 is looking a ton better than Wave 1 if you ask me. I don't give two shits about who Smokescreen is in Prime, but he does look pretty good and I'm going to probably get him, and maybe Bulkhead too. I'm skipping on Starscream since I don't need another Prime Starscream, and well, I'm done with Prime. I really like the earth-y colors on him too. I feel like a hypocrite again after swearing off Prime stuff. :lol 

    But there's a reason that is like that...Personally, I won't buy 3P unless it's G1 or a wholly new unique figure that compliments a figure or collection like Steel Core. When Hasbro doesn't cater to my needs as a Classics/G1 oriented collector, I have to go to 3P to get my fix, and I'm VERY glad of the G1 emphasis that 3P works on. So because of that...I don't see that as a problem.

    Sure it sucks that 3P ignores non G1 stuff, but Hasbro seems to be doing a good job of getting to those crazier themes like Beasts and stuff that people like.

    The only people that like this trash are kids and beast wars fans.

    Oh no, I wasn't criticizing third parties. As I said I love a lot of what they do too. I was just quoting someone who said hasbro was running out of ideas and that they should take inspiration from 3p, who mostly do G1 stuff. At least that's how I read his comment.

    I mean, they COULD take a lot of stuff from what 3parties do, but not "new" ideas.

    beep boop toyline working as intended.

    Wait, when did Prime turn into a beast wars esque show? (I haven't seen the end of Season 2...just up to the episode where SS gives Megs the Omega keyes...someone mind telling me that episode number so I can finish it?)

    ^ How bout "please don't insult people"? :) 

    Oh good, it's not just me.

    Though I'm probably still passing. Aren't they using new characters for Movie 4 because they figured out that the same characters aren't selling over and over? Cause Prime is starting to feel like...the same characters, over and over!

    It's a terrible picture but it actually reminds me of HftD Terradive more than anything.

    Still, glad the people who didn't buy FE get an in-scale Starscream, and a sculpt that may benefit from longer study of the character and animation model.

    Myself I grow ever-more-curious if this is just a zany toyline or if they're just going insane with redesigning the characters in the show. I might actually prefer the former.

    Dude doesn't hate just Beast Hunters, I'm pretty sure I haven't seen a positive comment from him yet. It's getting rather old.
