    (Also don't ask me why one two-pack is depicted in American packaging while the other one is depicted in European packaging.)

    Looks nice. But total lacks of paint apps always keeps me away from these toys. :(

    Primestrong is the only good thing here because it totally reminds me of Armada prime

    Further evidence that pretty much this entire line just isn't for me.
    Initially, I thought the bot/little bot would be kind of like the other two-packs, where the main bot was actually really nice (for NuRiD, that's saying something), but these main bots don't appear to be any better than those 3-steps.
    Those 'combiner' ones are almost disturbing. Is there precedent for them in the show? Yeah, the Optimus one looks kind of like Armada Pants Prime, but the first thing I thought of when I saw the pic (aside from how horrendous that alt mode is) is that the crappy fanfic writers will be having a field day with PrimeXStrongarm.

    For those who really care, here are the EAN barcodes. Please not that these only apply to the European packaging versions and are assortment-specific, whereas non-European figures usually have product-specific UPC barcodes.

    Activator Combiners 5010993350872
    Crash Combiners 5010993350605


    Assortment-specific UPC barcodes for non-European shipping cases are:
    Activator Combiners 630509507252
    Crash Combiners 630509506620

    Kids will love the gimmicks and play value and I suppose it's the only thing that matters with this subline.

    Again, not enough paint apps.

    I'll stick to Warriors and Legions, tho.


    I love how combiner pack Prime is packaged and photographed mistransformed (no, really, compare it to the vehicle mode in 3d render). Keeping the tradition going, eh?

    Not for me, either. I'd have preferred something like one of the CW/UW Combiners.

    For those it would help if I had the product-specific UPC barcodes. The Activator and Crash Combiners were easier to find since they're new assortments and thus listings for the assortments are more likely to contain photos of the new figures than it would be for listings for ongoing assortments to contain photos of wave 10 figures.

    If these were more like the Energon toys, I\'d love them, but as it stands, they\'re not my thing.

    And here I was hoping they'd release stock images of Stormshot so I could add them to TFWiki...

    Oh cool, we've got images of some happy meal toys... Oh Primus, these are actual retail figures? Good god, these suck. The figures are hollow, no paint apps, no poseability, awkward robot kibble in vehicle mode, and all in all a really stupid gimmick. These are more like dollar store knockoffs then what retail figures should be. Also, kids will get tired of these after like the first 30 seconds, so there is no real, lasting play value. At least with Beast Wars the figures were of higher quality than what came before, even if the looks didn't sit well with people. Now, it's almost as if the transformation is considered a detriment to the figure, which is an unfortunate thing for a line of transforming robots.

    Only because they are underpainted. I'm sure a custom paint job would make them look a whole much better.

    All things considered...

    ...I think that making a set of figures where a fembot transforms into a set of pants for her idol is a milestone for the franchise. Milestone, I say!
