    Screw Hasbro? Screw Takara? Nah screw TF, what's this ever done for us? Waste our money and stoke the flames of war.
    Is there any more you can elaborate on with modern reissue? Are you saying there's going to be another line like the Walmart TR headmasters line with reissues of recent toys, rather than G1? That's wildly fascinating..

    I wonder if 1998 counts as 'modern'...

    Felt the same with Cliffjumper.

    Although, as far as I can tell from the box art, the shield thing really doesn't look like any kind of integral part of his alt-mode. It really might just be a shield accessory that probably attaches to the truck bed.

    "Modern Reissues" sounds like the Retro Headmasters to me. Really hoping for Fort Max!

    Thanks! Always great to receive such hints

    Alright, with that i see its already started.


    here's my speculation. Ss86 ain't it, cause there's already quite a few alien vehicles.

    Hes saying a modern reissue. Prime? Its kind of modern, lines up with those other reissues, and I can't really think of that many space modes

    He said mostly though. What about the rest of it?

    HA!

    I LOVE how these new War for Cybertron: Siege, Earthrise, Kingdom, etc. in general are like new, articulated, show-accurate, G1 figures. This is what all us old-school dudes were desperately wanting back in 2004 when Energon was going on. It's cool as hell that Has/Tak are finally doing what we wanted way back when. Plus, as a bonus, we have all these new show-accurate Beast Wars figures that look amazing as well. We're in a new Golden Age of Transformer collecting. I friggin' love it!

    magnus is definitely the weakest of the reveals, the siege mold really held it back

    Looks like in addition to Hasbro's clever way of handling Dinobot's beast head in robot mode, they've also found a clever way to give him his double-thumbs in robot mode without the raptor having them but without changing the transformation.

    Could just be boxart stylisation but I think it's such a good solution that I'm hoping the figure has it.

    On another note, Dinobot seems to have his robot mode bones. I don't know how his legs will transform so perhaps they won't have them, but if they do, he might look really really good with Fossilizers. I'm also wondering how they'll do his weapons without ending up with a very rigid, unnatural-looking tail.

    It looks like it, if not all of it then at least 90/95%.
    I'm still loving how different Pipes looks, even in greyscale.

    I hope that Ultra Magnus is a remopd of his previous figure because it is a PERFECT UM figure.

    I honestly would have loved a Commander Class Magmatron, I know he didnt appear in the cartoon, but seeing a modern take on him towering over the new BW Megatron would have been glorious.

    If Huffer looks that good, then I\'m definitely hoping that we  finally get my favorite mini bot Brawn in this lineup, or at least in SS 86 preferably.

    My thoughts exactly! It's Going to be extremely hard for Hasbro to beat out the MFT MS-02 Engineer (AKA G1 Huffer) on G1 toon accuracy! This is going to be a very tuff call!

    I don't know much about BW but looking at some of the original show pics that have been posted here, shouldn't dinobot be a leader class instead of a voyager?

    Please! I want this so much! Titan figures in commander class is a big need for me now that Modulators are essentially giants in their own right! How many toes do I need to sell for a Scorponok in Commander Class to go with him? Let my dream of Giants in smaller scale come true!

    It kinda looks like his beast mode feet are his robot mode feet as well.

    I've never been a big Huffer guy, but if he has a trailer hitch so he can take Prime's trailer like he did in "Heavy Metal War" I think they got me. At least Huffer had a better sense of humor compared to Gears and by taking Prime's trailer it shows that under all of his snark he still respects Prime and is a good guy at heart. Plus having him and Rattrap together Prime and Primal could not handle that combined level of snark and I think you all just saw me convincing myself to buy this figure in real-time.

    A few other quick thoughts: Airazor looks fantastic but I really want to see her wings. Dinobot could be a highlight of the line and the way his velociraptor head forms his chest could be interesting, colors look good too. G2 Inferno was one of my first Transformers, I think I had like three of him because family members kept giving him to me as gifts, so this looks like the version of him I've been waiting for. Ultra Magnus looks good but aside from Optimus Prime and the seekers I've skipped all of the Earth mode Siege figures and I don't see that changing with Magnus. The styracosaurus fossilizer is really starting to grow on me and the idea of BW Megatron leading an army of dinosaur skeletal warriors just seems so metal and his style I might have to go for it.

    Overall though this all just looks fantastic and this might be my last year of real hardcore Transformers collecting because honestly toy wise after G1 and Beast Wars, not a whole lot really appeals to me, but man what a year it's going to be.
