    I just hope they don't skip the easy repaint/retool... Thermidor want to join my shelves too..

    Not to mention all of the Decepticons we still need non-legion, non-1-3 step figures of..

    Underbite, Chop Shop, Springload, Clampdown, Saberhorn, Glowstrike, Shadelock, and Roughedge.

    Man all of this looks awesome.

    I'm hoping all these characters are appearing in the cartoon. It'd be a waste not too.

    Having a proper Bludgeon in animation as well as lesser shown characters like Cyclonus and Skywarp.

    Great to see Rescue Bots Blurr be the first RB character to appear in something else, I assume Max Mittelman is reprising.

    Hope they cast the rest well.

    also Twinferno is awesome, good to have another beastial Autobot.

    This weekend I just saw the episode with Thermidor in it and yeah I really think it'd be smart of Hasbro to get their fair use out of the Bisk mold, the world doesn't have enough robot lobsters.

    The Prime-y Soundwave head really doesn't fit that uber bulky body.

    I think they'd just need to remove the molded details in his chest, and give him a new head. I doubt they'd bother making him look exactly as he did in Prime, which the show would explain as being repairs done to the dead body. Plus, I'm sure they would just give him a different colour scheme. That's not to say I think it's going to happen, or that it's something I think needs to happen, just that it could. I do think, however, with how many reuses of old CGI models season two had, that this new SW will be an altered version of Breakdown's CGI model, to save money.

    Edit: OK, on second glance, it only might be an altered Breakdown CGI model.

    The more lobsterbots the better.

    Hell, I'm still hoping that Clampdown gets a Deluxe toy as well.

    Huh. To me, the animal Decepticons were the funnest part of all of this. I got mad shrugs for most of these.

    Wasn't one of Screamer's bounty hunters in the show based off the RID Vehicon body as well?

    Yeah, Maybe adding some more Animal-themed Decepticons would be kinda sweet. I'm surprised they didn't sneak in Sky-byte in that line.

    Yeah, but he's based on the decepticon miner model, which i recall doesn't have a deluxe-sized toy. They could use the Air Vehicon mold with a new noggin, but it wouldn't be full-on accurate. Also, did we seen him in his alt-mode?

    I neither watch nor collect RID'15, but I just want to say that we live in a world where there's a current series update of Doublecross and that is freaking awesome.

    Good, repaints of Starscream. My FoC Seeker Coneheads ranks will grow, and my Generations Seekers as well.

    So, uhm.

    Is this a general retail release Warrior Starscream that's somehow different from the TRU exclusive version (similar to how there was a general retail Megatronus and a TRU exclusive version with a dfferent head) and I'm just not seeing the difference?

    Or did they just lump the TRU exclusive figure together with the rest for the sake of "just like Geewun" and pretended they were "revealing" him even though he's already been available at TRU for months?

    Did anyone read Leigon Cyclonus's bio? It pretty much says that he's actually a part if not the main bot running the Council at Cybertron right now and that he has mind controlling powers.
