    I see Hasbro is getting into the Beast Box market.

    This is rough. I am trying hard not to expand my collecting, but Brawn and Wheeljack look sweet.

    Yeah but its a core class figure. I imagine it will play better in hand. Its going to look like a dud next to most bigger and more expensive figures.

    They all look great for the most part, but why is Shockwave a Core class figure?

    I'm not buying, but these are great.

    I particularly like the alt-modes - very alien and totally incomparable to Earth vehicles, as they should be!

    Brawn is just, like, wow!!

    Can we get a new Soundwave design that has an actual alt-mode that isn't either decades old outdated devices or some bullshit of him lying down?
    Pleas Hasbro?
    This really can't be that hard if you actually tried.

    HOLY HELL these look amazing! Hasbro really outdid themselves again. Considering these models were last minute additions to the film, they've REALLY done these figures justice with the alt-modes - especially Brawn, I did not expect him to be done so well! Soundwave on the otherhand... I can TRY to convince myself he's some cybertronian Jet. There's a seamline around the chest which indicates Ravage could in fact fit in there! Even core Shockwave looks pretty decent, though I'll wait for the Voyager. All of their bot modes are movie accurate and their alt-modes are convincing and not half-baked, esp WJ and Ratchet!

    It’s actually really funny to me. Could’ve had the alt mode with no tape deck chest details and we get a weird ufo but they went out of their way to make it goofy

    Soundwave kinda reminds me of a game controller. Maybe N64 or Dreamcast perhaps.

    Brawn has the most exciting made-up alt mode I've seen in quite a while.

    Brawn's helmet is a little odd, but I like the look of the rest of the figure that I can probably deal with it. Wheeljack I'm still on the fence about, gonna wait for some reviews. Soundwave's robot mode looks amazing, while his vehicle is lack luster, it's still an instant pick up for me. Same with Ravage. Shockwave being a core class confuses me, and I'm not sure if I'll grab one. Ratchet is looking great, and I'm probably grabbing the homeboy.

    Definitely buying a few of these. I love that Soundwave turns into a rebel snowspeeder, lol.

    These look amazing! It looks better than MPM-12, and that's a masterpiece figure! I also love how stupid Soundwave's alt-mode looks.

    Man, and to think that I was looking forward to that BB movie design Soundwave in Studio Series a few years ago. Unless he has an exceptional articulation, I'll probably pass.
    Autobots have okayish alt modes, considering that moviemakers didn't care at all and just listed alt modes from the past media in character bios, but they're going to be tiny even by SS standards.
    I hope that RotB designs will be a much more coordinated effort.

    Honestly the "frown" curve of him reminds me a bit of the Ark from DOTM

    Not in the realms of G1, for an actual alt mode we must look to different places

    Ominous MW Soundwave in the distance

    Gotta think that even in a Cybertronian army, there's such a thing as a "standard issue" rifle.

    I'll be saving for the Bayverse releases next year, but I do like most of the alt modes they gave for these figures, and I am kinda tempted to get a BB Ratchet to paint in Bayverse Ratchet's colors.

    I wonder if Soundwave is compatible with the Siege Cassettes
