    (FYI, Huffer is a Deluxe not a Core class.)

    I don't see wave 1 core Optimus, this core Starscream or Megs, or the rumored upcoming core Soundwave as "for us." To me, they seemed aimed at a younger audience, either coming over from the ending BB-Cyberverse lines or completely new-to-Transformers kids: basically, the next generation of Transformers fans (getting/keeping them hooked on the good stuff). I doubt those core-sized versions are taking up a slot that would have gone to an updated figure of a G1 or Beast Wars character.

    The core class is a complete waste of space the way they’re using it and destined to fail. The fossil era ehhhh.... huffer looks great but will probably be too large. Inferno total aces! Bw figures I’m skipping the e siting figures I have are good enough.

    Oh the transformers prime game designs... I don’t see wHy that game never got off the ground

    I don't think you relize that those examples of Inferno's toon head are all model sheet mix-ups based on older sheets. @Chris McFeely did a good video on it. He had the square head the other 80% of the time.

    I agree regarding that stumpy Seeker jet. But as someone who fully embraces 3P, I can say I’ve only seen one Huffer that ever interested me, and it’s no longer available except second-hand, for ridiculous asking prices. I’d be interested in hearing your list.

    I think Inferno and Huffer look basically perfect.

    "Bully for you." It's an old idiom that more or less is a way of saying: Good for you.

    That Core Starscream will look nice standing on CW Bruticus’ shoulder.

    The more I look at it the more I like it.
    Alt mode isn't perfect, but it really is a very nice overall package.
    With Optimus, Megatron and Starscream, I really hope we get a few more of the big names in Core Class. It'll be awesome finally having great representations of them in their G1 forms in this scale. Past iterations were decent, but stylized to the point I didn't enjoy them that much.
    I will happily build a small army at $10 a pop.

    Inferno looks great, as expected. The new Fossilizer also looks cool.

    But damn, if Huffer doesn't look amazing. I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth, but it's almost too good for such a minor character.

    I think they’re also meant to interact with the Ark.

    Want: Airazor, Huffer, Dinobot
    Maybe: Ractonite (he has a good beast mode and I like most of the robot mode, but the left arm assembly looks weird to me)

    Fossilizers are much cooler than I was expecting.
    I'm thinking of getting a few of the Core-class ones, to army-build a Sparkless/Terrorcon horde! (I won't go crazy as my shelf-space is limited, but a little zombie shelf might be fun)

    Yeah, it's not called G1 either.

    But it isn't a Beast Wars line. It is a line that has Beast Wars in it.

    Wave 1 has 5 BW characters out of 10 toys. All the rest looks like 2-3, with 1 Fossilizer and the rest being G1.
