    looks to be 11 different seekers and counting. Plus Refrakter.
    Megatron, Soundwave, Soundblaster, Shockwave...
    ...Barricade, Brunt and Spinister....

    ...the battle chargers...

    I think they're doing alright.

    Wait, they mentioned something about Japanese G1 stuff? I had to stop watching after the RED reveal due to work? Are they releasing more?

    I was really looking forward to Rotorstorm for my wrecker shelf. Colors look good but no new headscuplt really kills this. He may as well just been called shattered glass Spinister. I thought gen selects catered to the hardcore fans? They had to know this was a lazy move.

    No, it wasn't. It's just clever painting of the G1 Spinister details on the Siege mould. Spinister's chest doesn't look like anyone's cockpit, let alone Rotorstorm's.

    So much MEH.

    I mean, the weapons pack is cool, and I plan to buy it, and I guess I’ll pick up Rotorstorm, but no new head??? And then excusing it by saying it’s “IDW”? Lame.

    Also, Tigertrack? I mean, I guess just because the mold exists now they thought they should do it, I want to see more out-of-the-box stuff... sigh. Also really disappointed with dead Prime, that’s the most boring “lifeless” (pun intended) use of that mold they could think of.

    I think this set will sell out quick and more sets will likely follow. Im a big buyer of accessories so I can appreciate this. Im also a supporter of the recent explosion in 3D printed accessories and filler kits. Thats what the 3rd party market will have to shit to if they fear fans will hold off and see what Hasbro might do.

    the Ravage cage is the only one I'm not feeling, seems a bit of a waste of plastic with very limited use for what could have been more handheld options

    Hyped for Centurion and the weapon pack. Bummed about Rotorstorm. I expect better of Hasbro when it comes to retools at this point.

    I know it was expected, but using the Spinister mold for Rotorstorm doesn't really appeal to me. Might've been able to buy into it with a new head at least.
    Tigertrack and the accessory pack look neat.

    Hasbro has never really offered a cartoon accurate, G1 Optimus Prime ion blaster with a 5mm peg. There have been lots of rifles that resemble Prime's trademark weapon to varying degrees, yes.. but nothing as close as the one coming in the weapon pack. I think MP-01 had the best looking ion blaster and that was years ago at this point. I'm using a Voyager-scaled copy of that rifle for my Prime.

    I like the side peg. Looks like it could be the charging handle for the bolt. But this new Ion Blaster is way closer to the original's iconic look.

    I'm horrified for what the price is going to be. I really want Centurion but I'm scared for what a bunch of accessories, most of which I don't even want, are going to do to the price.

    With the rate Hasbro is churning out Sideswipe repaints, it seems likely. Didn't we already see "Cordon" somewhere?

    I'm predicting $30, which is more than I'd like but not terrible. If it's closer to $40 or more I think I'm out.

    I agree. Could have made Meg's stock. Plus blast effects like the iconic purply beam that Megatron blasts
