    I'm not sure that I'm feeling the Starscream's proportions. His head seems tiny, and his legs and feet look much worse than the Siege one.

    I might pass on his and wait for the Coneheads that we're sure to get (unfortunately probably as a hard to get Target exclusive).

    Starscream really does look like a larger version of the Classics figure. I was expecting more of a mild retool of the Siege figure, but this one looks almost like a whole new mold.

    Cliffjumper is great, but I hope Hasbro doesn't try to sell him as a deluxe.

    I don't like the wheels on Prime's butt. I would have preferred they kept the Siege wheels that folded to the torso.

    Some things look great on Wheeljack, but the squared off front and rear wing look off. The car mode paintjob is too busy.

    So are the new Cyberverse toys going to be $20 now because they come with a piece of an absolutely horrendous build a figure?

    I'm thinking Cliff will be remolded into Bumblebee later, a mild remold/retool but from a quick Google reminder, Cliff and Bee had different alt modes in the show although the toys they were often the same.

    I'd like Voyager sweeps. There a definitely some deluxes that work better as voyagers. Dinobots for starters...

    The head and boots are molded from blue plastic. Why not mold the hands with those parts? That's what they did on Seige Optimus.

    The question now is was it some weirdo fan who happens to carry UW Roller around all the time, or did someone from Hasbro put him there on purpose to let us know something?

    Cyberverse figures with actual articulation? What is this madness? Maccadam is cool even though he'll probably be a bitch to complete.

    A little upset that there hasn't been news of Super Megatron yet, but we still have 3 days left for convention news.

    Earth Rising looks like a lot of neat stuff I will be passing on. Grapple and any weird stuff like Ironworks being the exception.

    Cyberverse looks kind of neat though, maybe we get a warrior articulared Shadowstrike?

    Cliffjumper has a new head,guys. He has a new head. And the bazooka that he pulled out of nowhere that one time. AAAHHH

    Wheeljack is mine. I'm liking the color choices that the designers made with him, including the generous use of green and the orange hubcaps.

    Maccadam looks nice and I like that we finally have a BAF in TF again (can't believe that Transmutate was 13 years ago), but none of the individual Deluxes (that he's presumably packed with) on display interest me. Easy skip.

    They all look Awesome. Man I\'m lucky. Wheeljack and Hoist were always my favorite G1 Autobots. Finally a Voyager G1 Starscream. Can\'t wait to get all of them.

    I guess if you still have the transformers classics Starscream, you can just keep that one, because this new one doesn't look that much different...maybe this one is taller?...hopefully?
    Edit:
    I noticed it says Voyager Earth Rise Starscream, so that gives me some hope...but these recent scales have been smaller.

    carry on...

    I’ve got a feeling, the way things are turning out with War for Cybertron we will get voyager Sweeps. I’m predicting the year 2021 during or after the release of Unicron. A Transformer fan can only hope.:)
