    Wtf why would anyone pay that much for a Warrior figure? Given the quality we’ve seen so far, there isn’t much to justify the price they’re listed for as it is.

    Yup, that's kinda why we haven't gotten a single YouTube Review yet.

    Artwork = Very cool style
    Packaging colors = Love it. My kind of colors (yellow, black)
    The TF's in the package = Ummm...no.

    By "Warrior Class", does this term still equate to "Deluxe" sized Transformers? The cartoon looks interesting enough, but the toys look like a giant leap BACKWARDS to me. They don't look like their animated designs at all, and that's a shame. I guess I'll just try and find a few RID Warriors to round out a nice little representation of that line as I find those toys to be more appealing (which is actually saying a lot).

    If anyone like these new things, great! As for me, I miss the Animated and TF: Prime lines.

    If you don’t have a DVR, maybe program a VHS recorder ^.^

    Or, whatever channel it’s on could put it on their app at least within a couple hours of airing... :lol 

    Just kidding, this isn’t Game of Thrones or Westworld, wherein we can reliably expect our corporate overloads to give us our dose at air time and our leisure, alas.

    Oh, and if you want nice versions of these characters, there’s these companies called Iron Factory, DX9, New Age, Magic Square Toys, and more doing fabulous work.

    For example, I’m more than ready for Iron Factory’s Shrike’s Feather, aka Slipstream! :D

    Everything I've read seems to say that yes, it does.

    First photo I saw of TF:C Shockwave in-package I thought he looked very cool. I quite like the card art and design.

    Has anyone got that Shockwave yet?
    He's the only one that looks interesting.

    Hasbro is going on the cheap! There really isn't an excuse not to make appealing looking figures. Technology has caught up with expenses so why can't they better toys. Sooner or later people are going to say I can't spend $16.00 for this.

    More complex than rescue bots, and simpler than RID... I would happily give one of these to a five-year old, and i guess there's room for that on the market. Hope Hasbro hurries up with WFC though.

    They need to be taken pics of ppl that know how to make them appealing. Many decades in this hobby I learned long ago you can trust much of the images online until it's been released & u can see what your getting.

    Also Animated was in 2008. Before the parts count number amount change. Back then they could have 100 parts count in a retail toy. I believe ROTF Leader Optimus Prime is something like 128 parts or so IIRC, and he was $35 retail. Now we're not even 45 parts count for $50 dollars! Even the damn Masterpieces are cutting down a few parts. It's because the steel molds cost more then triple what costed pre-2010.

    Exactly!

    Those are deluxes in the picture. And POTP toys are not even close to as "intricate" as Animated toys. It was before the "hollowing" days. And again more parts count. And the price point has gone up from $7 retail for deluxes to $17 retail for deluxes in 10 years. The parts count has gone down and so has parts of the newer figures plastic quality. Some figures the entire thing. It's not about aesthetic bro that has nothing to do with this.

    It needs to stop! They at LEAST need to clean up all the hollow parts that shit is bullshit until we protest they wont do anything about it!

    I want the Leaders Optimus Prime, Megatron, Grimlock, and Warriors Starscream, Shockwave, Bumblebee. And Prime probably I like how it looks like his arms extend.

    Dude its the worst! They are basically selling the same Soundwave, Bumblebee, & probably Drift and everyone else.

    No "warriors" are a hair smaller with lower level engineering compared to "deluxes".

    I'm pretty sure after War for Cybertron line, they will give us Generations versions of these designs from the show. They already have a box designed for the Generations Classics version of the evergreen design. Which is what this is I'm pretry sure These toys look kidified versions of those designs.

    Hasbro.com. I got them all for 20% free shipping and just looking for Thundercracker, & Lockdown I got the rest. All from HasbroToyShop

    Same, man. I ordered Megatron and he is coming tomorrow, but Jazz was too expensive so I need to find him in the wild.

    My Megatron and Brawl arrived today. Although I have to ship them to my friends house because I live in the heart of the drugs, addicts, and there are no mailboxes or maIl delivery in my town just p.o. boxes, and it's the sidewalk in a semi ghetto area right outside my.door & HasbroToyShop doesn't ship to P.O. boxes. Anyways I just need Jazz and Lockdown now to complete the line (so far) I'm stoked!

    About the Cyberverse line I bet they will hit USA any day now!

    TLK One-Steps have been even worse here. Until recently Tesco were selling them for £13 and Sainsbury's for £14.
    Thank goodness for Asda sales and B&M.
