*looks at Soundwave*
How dare they massacre my boy!
I’d like to see an in hand picture of Cliffjumper. Curious how bad that backpack is. But he’s also someone I’m really interested in owning.
Oh... oh no... Soundwave's alt mode is not good.
He's making Cybertronian lampposts look impressive.
So are we finally seeing some cut backs on these figures? I remember reading that this year (or next I don’t remember) they were going to make more cost cuts on most of their lines.
where are their package art?
I don't usually keep the backdrops. I'm keeping Cliffjumper's backdrop, damn I love those Cybertron scenes! Also, I'm glad they did Cybertron for the backdrop and not the planet he was brutally murdered on. Most likely because they plan on reusing this backdrop(hopefully a lot!).
What they did for Soundwave's satellite and robot mode looks lazy and the transformation is pitiful. I'll stick to the original version.
Soundwave barely has any engineering, they could at least have painted him silver
ill get soundwave, though i wish he was a voyager, but its probably a solid no on cluffjumper and topspin
And or included accesories like ravage and or reedman. If a lame ass army man is a valid inclusion with shockwave than we could get a reedman
topspin DOTM is better
We already know exactly why they didn't include Ravage. They intentionally left him out, so they could package him with next years' Leader Class Grindor, who will almost certainly be nothing more than a minor retool of Blackout.
This isn't really anything new for the line either, unlike paint apps being cut at the last minute. It's the same reason they keep splitting up the accessories for characters like Ratchet, Starscream, and Lockdown, between the initial toy and its redeco/retool. The aim is to sell as many toys as possible, even to people who aren't normally completionists.
Cliffjumper is a maybe
I like the look of cliff however soundwave salt mode is uh....ok and topspin looks just spectacular
Cliffy still looks great (though preorders look like no one else agrees! ). More Cybertron modes!!!
But cancelling SW and Top Spin. They look rather meh. Especially SW. Look, he can pull his legs over his head!
Better to skip these two and save $$$ for Generations/G1 releases (like Scorponok).
Now the long wait for SW cgi art.
Theres also his dotm gun that could have been included
Topspin looks amazing!!!! I want him so bad!!!
Everyone complaining about his skinny arms obviously can’t tell he’s transformed and posed wrong lol his shoulder parts are supposed to angle down against his arms to make them look bulkier
Cliff looks good to!
but my god..... Soundwave what did they do to you!!!!! A great mold destroyed by lack of paint! Wtf!! Come on!!!!
no box images??
A solid no on the best looking ones out of the three? Eh!?!
