    I think we need a McFeely and Thew reaction video, haha.

    I'm torn. I think they both look nice. My 30th Skids is on my Lost Light shelf, and he'll never be usurped there. This one is great, though, and may demand space elsewhere.

    Bulkhead, I'll have to live with for a second. His body is different enough to throw me, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. The alt-mode is fantastic, even if I think it looks like DOTM Megs.

    Both alt modes look like proper vehicles.

    Skids looks like his articulation is much improved and less hindered from the last version. Looking forward to picking him up!

    I think what maybe yourself and others are missing is he’s no more hollow than Siege inpactor, earthrise sunstreaker, siege prowl etc. this looks like the same quality to me. I’m not seeing budget cuts personally

    Again, we Cybertron fans thought the same thing about GUOP being shit and not selling, and here we are getting our own titan mold. Be patient and your patience is likely to be rewarded.

    I'm REALLY hoping that he comes off better in hand than he does in these pictures. I've been waiting to replace my T30 for a while now (love the look in both modes, but hate the actual transformation), and was looking forward to Crosscut to go with Road Rage, but this mold... oof. IDK. Everything else they've put out in the past year or two has been so amazing, it's hard to believe that this mold is so... off.

    hmmm.. errr... m'kay...

    Those are the cheapest looking figures I think I've seen in a very long time... I'll just echo the "boxes" thing...

    Thank you Hasbro, you're making it easier on my wallet...

    Seriously, that Skids is just (oversized core?)... that Bulkhead ... just... (went on a diet or something that lost weight in the wrong way) ...wow... this is for Cyberverse, right? Neither look right whatsoever, in any way to me.

    I don’t think wanting “decent depictions of these characters” is being picky. :/

    Hey so how do you think the wrecking ball attaches to the arm. It looks like the forearms are solid and the hands don't flip in to reveal a peg. Do you think the it just covers the hand or the hands are removable?

    Skids looks great, despite the potential clearance issues in vehicle mode. It almost makes me want to cancel the upcoming MP order I have for the Diaclone version as I'm sure he'll eventually pop up as a Selects version.

    I wasn't expecting to want Bulkhead. I totally thought they'd go Prime design. Instead, they went G1 - and it's indeed glorious!

    Dude... have you seen McDonalds Transformers toys? And the vehicle mode on Skids looks very close to the original.

    Not what I expected for Bulkhead...but I'll admit it's a pretty cool take. Curious to see how they've tackled Arcee, Knock Out, and Soundwave.

    scout class engineering for a voyager figure is so bland. And his chest is disgusting to look at.
    Skids is too hollow to make anything work, like he\'s supposed to be part of the cyberverse line.

    This line is off to a fantastic start.

    Hasbro, I was JOKING, when I suspected you were gonna do this. If Arcee and Armada Starscream just turn out to be the Earthrise molds "homaging" their designs I'm going to throw a fit.

    Bulkhead’s headsculpt makes him look like a grizzled war veteran.

    Arcee is said to be fairly close to her Prime incarnation by APollux just this morning
