    I can't believe they didn't fix Ultra Magnus' "belt." Good grief, Hasbro photography team.

    Airazor appears, for all intents and purposes, to be her original BW toy transformation. Two things of note: her wings have extra articulation for more dynamic posing in both modes (and hopefully giving her the ability to "perch") and her back appears to have four slots in it that....maybe?...are where you'd plug her weapons in alt mode.

    Very excited about both her and Dinobot.

    I like how the mold for the front of Magnus's cab and Dinobot's head are taken straight from their masterpiece figures. Although from just seeing his cab I do sort of wish they simply used a white ER Optimus. Then again the inner bot may look good.

    Dinobot looks fantastic. The raptor mode looks way better than I imagined. Apparently it's Airazor's turn on the Xbox, but otherwise she looks fantastic as well. Falcon has a lot of exposed robot but that's kind of unavoidable for her design. Also is it me or are her wings jointed to fold up onto her back to emulate how they shrank in the show?

    Magnus... yeesh.

    I can totally see Airrazor getting super retooled into Terrorsaur.

    Just flip where the ehad and tail go in beast mode and everything lines up perfectly in robot mode. (Unless you wanted show accurate arm wings in which case i can't help you there.)

    airazor is easily my favorite of the line so far. the head filling out the gap in alt mode is the kind of touch it feels we've been missing from recent lines and the detailing in both modes looks stellar.

    We've waited years for toys this good. I think Hasbro got the hint about people being rightly pissed off about the anniversary largely being ignored.

    Ultra Magnus’ robot mode looks to be really, really good especially once the belt has hopefully been switched around. The alt-mode leaves a lot to be desired. I wish the trailer was an Earth-based one, and especially a car-carrier. The Kingdom alternate mode feels like they changed the cab and gave up on the rest of the figure.
    Dinobot and Airazor look perfect, though. Really looking forward to getting all three of these guys in-hand.

    Based on this odd pic, you can better see some of the articulation in Airazor's bird mode:

    So it looks like you can position the head, wings, and legs to get something close to this.

    Wow, Dinobot and Airazor look fantastic. Magnus... definitely looks like Magnus. Everything about the Siege vehicle mode that I liked was retooled away. Oh well, $50 saved.

    Considering how decidedly *not* G1 the alt mode is for this guy, it'll be interesting to see if the Siege version goes up in price on the secondary market as it's alt mode (though based on RiD) is much cleaner overall.

    Dinobot and Airrazor look great! Beast modes could have been better but they aren't as bad as I feared they'd be so I'll take it. Ultra Magnus looks like he belongs in Earthrise though. Really meh.

    Magnus is such a lazy, half-assed remold that he’s easy to ignore if you already have the Siege version.

    Dinobot and Airazor look fantastic though. Look at the molded detailing on the beast skin!
