    I have a couple of times, but only gotten "yes, we will carry it" or something similar. That was a couple months ago, though.

    I haven't seen anything to say one way or the other. It's also a little challenging to predict, since there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to whether "MF," "MS," or "VS" figures do or not come with a bonus mechs.

    Cool. Another friendly reminder won't hurt.

    They are very brittle - to brittle to use with robot mode and actually play with them and just brushing against them chips the ends off.

    I want regular Legends Gobots... But I can live with Micromasters. Now that they have Leader 1, they better make Cykill. Would be interesting to see how they do a Moto bot at that size

    So, I read that Hound is supposed to have some kind of bonus item. Anyone know what it is?

    Finally got around to collecting my Weirdwolf and Gears. I only opened WW; I am honestly not even sure why I bought Gears and I think he'll be in storage for a very very long while lol

    I'm a WW (actually, all the Decepticon "masters" of any kind") fan and while I am happy to get a Legends G1 WW, I'm not all that impressed by this guy. The biggest strike against him in my eyes is purely a preference thing - I love the toy version of WW whereas this is pretty much a cartoon WW. In my opinion the toy version is much more buff and macho in both modes, with a lovely darker yellow colour. The cartoon WW always struck me as too brightly-coloured compared to the toy, and thin and weedy to boot (especially wolf mode, which looked more like a skinny rat).

    Toy/toon styling preference aside, I would honestly have been satisfied with a G1 toy-ish transformation with added articulation. In the MFT version, as a result of the transformation scheme, the bot mode has asymmetrical legs and the wolf mode has ugly hind legs (exposed bits at the upper "thigh" and a blue stick for the lower leg). The stubby guns don't have the distinctive G1 toy's gun shape either; I plan to try and remedy that by sticking a little bit off cut-off plastic straw to form a longer barrel on the blue gun at least.

    I think I prefer their Chromedome, even with his loose chest and fat legs :p 
    Still in the market for future G1 Headmasters though; the upcoming Hardhead looks aces so far.

    I'm the opposite. Im glad he is nothing like the g1 toy bricks.

    The asymmetrical legs take some getting used to, but if you can appreciate the transformation engineering, it's not so bad.

    If you like the Minicon design pattern, then, sure, you'll love the new MicroMasters with their fake wheels, fiddly ball joints, heel skis, and two trucks with their arms hanging out slapped together being called a "sword" or "shield." Come to PA and rustle the dust off the stacks of them that haven't moved since they were stocked. I just don't see these selling very well. It's cool and ironic to like GoBots now but coolness and irony don't pay the bills. Action Toys makes a higher quality product and those wound up clearanced before they started cutting production/order amounts. MFT needs to bring their A-game and more Minicons isn't it.

    It's a Sniper Rifle supposedly for the E-Box Military or Police figures (as well as for Hound). Which I hope they keep including with the various listed repaints so I can arm them all up with one.

    I absolutely love the idea of them gobots. I haven't got the seige micromasters because i have the g1s and don't see them so much as an upgrade, if they were legends then yes but rather spend the money on completing the g1s...

    Anyway, gobot micromasters, i hope for as many as they can make and even the bases. I have some of the originals but they do make for unruly collection with their damage and age. Micromaster gobots are perfect.

    I'm all for gobot micromasters. I'm thrilled to see Gobots come back in any reasonable form. Always felt like the Gobots deserved more of a chance than they got. I'm just hoping we get more!
