    Courtesy of Youtuber That Toy Guy on his Twitter X who got the set in today. This is the first set of in-hand photos to my knowledge.

    Oh, is pretty surprising that Starscream is bigger than the usual Voyager toys and Bumblebee is also bigger than his typical self.

    Ok I know I'm late to the party but it appear that Starscream doesn't have the tiny wing fin near the nosecose when compared to that game design images that was posted yesterday.

    Also I really like how tall that mold is and I'm suprised That Toy Guy was the first one that posted these inhand image. Gonna bet PVP will review the two tomorrow or soon!

    I would like everyone to keep in mind that these have been done and dusted since 2020 or 2021, and were made with those budgets. They definitely had more resources to work with when making these compared to any current releases paired with that AND Reactivate counting as its own line.

    Huh, they actually look pretty solid in hand. A lot better than the promo pictures at the very least.

    Sure is a convenient to mention considering for the longest time people claimed budgets weren’t decreasing. Hell the main explanation for a while with shrinking bots was “scale”.

    2021 is modern, we shouldn’t be acting as if toys from 2 years ago are magically some impossible things that can’t be reproduced. These aren’t 2010 era toys, these were literally made recently. These are just as possible now as they were a little over a year ago.

    I feel dark urge to paint eyes on this Starscream in beautiful shade of red.

    That being that they are comparing Starscream to an Earthrise Seeker, also from the same time. Having fans care about budget and the like has been a nice trick Hasbro has used to make fans explain away figures with shortcomings or other egregious cost cutting measures.

    I don’t like how much empty space is inside the box. Nor how half the toy is hidden.

    Okay so it’s nothing new, but I still don’t like it.

    I really like the look of both, and I'm sure there's an in-game reason for it, but the asymmetrical colors on Starscream in both modes aren't appealing to me. I like both modes just fine, but a cleaner, uniform color scheme would have been a purchase from me. I'll wait for a discount somewhere down the line.

    The Prime/Soundwave set, to me, was the stronger of the two. Neither seem to be super hot sellers, either, though I swear I recall the info from the Pulse stream indicating that these would be "limited" in some form....and yet, I don't think they've sold out anywhere.

    Gosh the molds look great.

    Gosh I hate the colours.

    Bring on the clean versions pronto, Hasbro! (That Bumblebee mold would also make a great Cliffjumper.)
