    For me most of them feel really... underwhelming. Like Shockblast from Megatron drops the satellite mode which is his main alt-mode for me.

    Yeah the only one I would buy would be Thundercracker. I was trying to see if there were very many answers to the question, but there really werent. Its too bad that cybertron stuff was already modern engineering, because that might exclude them from future reboot lines, or might downgrade them. Who knows though.

    I dunno, the proportions and articulation are starting to feel their age. The main thing they have up over modern transformers is size and gimmicks.

    Well their proportions were the same in the show as the toys. Added details and some new articulation would be cool though.

    Well obviously not (just look at g1)
    But for cybertron show and toy were already the same. There isnt really a way to improve on the already perfect designs besides adding paint and articulation. The proportions and details were part of the characters.

    Hopefully it’s 3P. I’d much rather hasbro make a new mold for TLK Hot Rod.

    If it’s real, it’s another figure to cross of the to-do list for ss, if it’s fake oh well. If it’s 3P it’s a good stand in til we get an official one.

    What do you mean 'why'? I don't think it looks bad, what other reason could I give??

    Yesss!

    Kingdom Galvatron would go very well along with them. And then, a new Bludgeon. And I wouldn't mind for another - smaller - Scorponok either, as it'd be cool to have him in (somewhat) comics scale. Cool as the titan is, it's definitely out of my budget and I don't really fancy that big of a figure and I'd like my Scorponok a bit smaller anyway.

    I'm impressed we're just about four days away from the Ark reveal and thus far it's been relatively underwraps.

    I mean, I fully expect the damn to burst any minute now.

    If it's SS I hope the backpack folds up WAY more than that, but otherwise I like it.

    For once Hasbro's better than the 3P KO. The spinning front wheel sections to make Hot Rod's forearms were so charmingly brilliant. This just took it away and made him yet another generic Carbot. Sad!
