I mean, I feel like Hasbro has the Transformers spread way to thin at retail as it is (Generations/Generations Selcts/Studio Series/Bumblebee/Cyberverse/Authentics/Playskool Heroes/CCG/I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting) but I find myself REALLY surprised at how much overlap there is going on between the new Cyberverse line and Seige. I know both of them are trading heavily on G1, but still: Optimus Prime Megatron Shockwave Soundwave Prowl Starscream Thundercracker plus: Ratchet (most like a Walgreen's exclusive in Seige) Hot Rod (was just in Power of the Primes as well as Titans Return) Grimlock (was just in Power of the Primes) I guess none of the overlaps are particularly surprising, but it seems odd to me to have SUCH a large swath of characters existing in both lines essentially occupying shelves at the same time. (it's also pretty surprising/amzing we haven't had Bumblebee announced for Seige yet, LOL, but with the distinctives of his design on the upcoming IDW covers you have to figure it's coming, even if not in Seige) I feel like if I was Hasbro, I'd personally have made the lines compliment each other a little more. Make the sculpting less kiddy-fied (which always always feels like pandering to me) on Cyberverse (more like how those Walgreen's Cyber-series were) and focus on a different subset of characters ~ you can still keep your leaders between the lines, but if you offered quality sculpts and alternate characters I think you'd see a lot of Generations fans be willing to jump in. even the size classes could have been complimentary: you could do Warriors at closer to the old Scout size, with a similar complexity level to PW3 Legends and "Megas" that are between Deluxe and Voyager. Since it's being supported by an actual show you could do some deeper cut characters. I could see Bumblebee + guys like the Throttlebots and Battlechargers (lots of potential parts re-use between them... maybe even you keep the pull back gimmick???), maybe focus again on animal-themed 'cons like RiD'15 did and redo the Insecticons (or better yet Deluxe Insecticons) in a consistent aesthetic. Or focus on a Cars -vs- Jets vibe like G1 started with. Drop in some characters from other recent alternate takes in a more G1ey style (Hot Shot/Bulkhead as examples). Again, they could still be simplified in construction and reduced in articulation as necessary, but ya know, look good.
