    Nice line up!
    New Hoist, Wheeljack and Cliffy are bought. Glad I skipped Tetra jet Screamer and waited. He\'s looking ace in both modes esp the Jet.

    I look forward to more Micromaster bases too. The more Micromaster stuff, the merrier. I can never get enough of those guys.

    Is it just me, or is Hasbro doing some really fun things with the Generations line?!

    I've no problems with the blast effects. In fact, I quite like them, and wish they'd do a set of only them (but not limit it to Hasbro Pulse).

    Now that the Masterpiece line has gotten off-track and priced for the 1%, do I leave that collection incomplete and jump ship to CHUG?

    “Tell Hasbro, I buy them (G1 Season 1 & 2 TFs)...I’ll BUY them ALL!” X)

    That aside, I’m excited that we have Hoist as it means he can be re-tooled to Trailbreaker!

    Wheeljack...I can’t decide if this or the 2009 figure is better?

    God that Cliffy J is sexy.

    Trailbreaker retool incoming too, and Inferno. And dare I hope for a proper Slicer from Wheeljack?

    Speaking of, this is the best WJ toy yet. Even compared to his MP version. Yeeesssss

    The more I look at it, the more and more disappointing Starscream looks :/

    Hoist is growing on me a bit more though

    That's exactly why I stuck with CHUG scale. Far more options to complete my collection.

    On topic: that Wheeljack is wicked. I also wonder will we get a Sunstreaker out of that mode?

    So many of these figs are bought on sight.

    I would agree with you if the cybertron modes were inspiring. If the line as a whole was more of that I would be all into it. But most of them look like earth cars with techy textures. If I'm gonna buy a sideswipe that just looks like an alien Lamborghini then why cant it just be a Lamborghini?

    With this Wheeljack I see no reason why we can't get a proper Downshift or Camshaft out of this mold. Take a remolded POTP Jazz and turn it into Overdrive and boom, Omnibots. We got Powerdashers, let's round up the rest of the S.T.A.R.S. catalogue bots, amiright guys and gals?

    Pre-ordered Starscream and Hoist, they look awesome. Might got that Optimus but something seems off to me on him, the Seige version looks better to me in robot mode. Can't wait for the full Scorponok reveal. Been waiting for him for years, he'll be my most anticipated figure from this line by far!

    Unfortunately, I agree with your statement. I like the Cybertronian alt-modes, but when you think about it, they just look like a bunch of vehicles out of Halo or a Call of Duty game that takes place in the future. Still a sick toyline either way, but you make perfect sense.

    aaaaaaaaand already sold out on Hasbro Pulse. Really? I was hoping not to pay anything for shipping. How is that BBTS has it in stock but Hasbro who is MAKING them are sold out. BBTS gets the money then. Sure, Hasbro gets SOME money... but they could have gotten more. Instead they get a percentage of the money instead of all of it.

    And that is why they fail.

    I've been using the Hunt for the Decepticons Hubcap as my G1 Hubcap for years... but I might finally swap him out if we get this retool.

    Cliffjumper looks absolutely ace! Wheeljack looks like a discount MP which isn't bad; I do like him as well and will probably get him just cuz for some reason I've built up a little Wheeljack collection (really hope they do a Slicer version).
    Starscream seems....oddly dissapointing. Visually the Siege robot mode looks fantastic; the chest on this Earth one looks starkly similar to the Classics mold and I can't understand why they would use that bar over the chest again AND have it not painted/unpainted to match the nosecone. I was really hopeful we'd get the classic swing through nose cone. I'll get it due to me Seeker/Starscream love but I was sincerely expecting a better looking figure when all the others look stellar.
