    Still hoping for Mohawk and Junkheap.
    I must admit, though, for the most part AoE/TLK designs don't interest me anywhere near as much as the first trilogy designs. They're a lot more human-like and less alien-robot-made-of-car-parts-y, and some of the characters are even copies of old ones. Like, as much as I love the rusted hippie van mode, I dunno if I'd buy a Dreadbot since he's essentially just Crowbar again.

    No I mean we specifically already got TLK bee. He came in a two-pack with a repaint of BB bee. They miiiiight reissue him individually with the hammer at some point, but would be willing to bet it’ll be the same mold.

    I'm game for AOE/TLK in SS. Im still waiting for The Fallen, and a complete Dinobots set with sculpting and paint on par with SS Grimlock would be fantastic .


    EDIT - I meant Galvatron, sorry I'm still sleepy haha

    Although I'm also waiting for Fallen!

    I still wouldn’t put it in SS. Besides grimlock the few TLK/AoE figures that are already in SS are literally repaints or remolds from the TLK/AoE line. (A Perfect example of this is KSI boss and drift)
    If I remember, almost every TLK figure was a copy of AoEs with some premium name slap. Pails in comparison to the older toy lines.

    Not so, lockdown, AOE drift, and stinger have received excellent studio series figures. As for the TLK line, the only figures that carried over were drift who was a complete reshell/remold, crosshairs who was far better this time around with notably less reshelling/ remolding though it was still present, 3/4 of the dinobots, and hot rod who was a poor remold of lockdown.

    The Last Knight had some good figures, particularly the voyagers. Prime, Hound, Scorn, Megatron and Nitro are all great. TLK Bee I'd argue is better then SS49, especially the backpack and how it compresses. And Cogman is pretty fun. I know there's some duds but overall I think TLK had some winners.

    Both itterations of TLK Bee have already been done, we had his WWII design last year, and his Camaro mode has kind of already been released in the line (he was in the Bumblebee two pack, with the rusty VW Bee)

    I REALLY hope toyworld move onto the normal designs after they're done with ww2, this is some masterpiece engineering at SS scale...

    I would've been super mad at the still bad paint job (just don't do splotches!) but I'm to busy laughing at the idea of a figure's name including "with neat butt" :lol 

    also that's definitely how I'm gonna introduce myself from now on

    THIS is the Skids and Mudflap energy we want

    I agree.
    These two were particularly awesome. So was Barricade.

    Yeah they may not be MP levels of accuracy, but they were the first real attempt to go for a sort of "voyager plus". In a sense they are Alternators done right (call it heresy, but Alternators sucked). They have shelf presence. I hope to find more someday for a good price.
