    I also did find it a bit odd how certain characters such as Reflector, Astrotrain and Skytread seemed more like retro G1 figures rather than Cybertonian based ones.

    It looks like the wheels don't flip like the Siege version, but if that's the case, then what's this ?

    I think you’re right my friend. No argument. The hood and part of the tail lights may be the Porsche but it definitely looks more like the Starion. That’s a good way to work around the license issue. I think we both agree on Cliff not looking like Windcharger. Lol!

    Very happy with what I am seeing here. I just hope they stay with the clean look here and don't add the mud like the Siege figures have.

    Reread the product descriptions and it says Prime also changes into a modular base not his trailer.....kinda cool.

    Seeing the reveals I think, this might the first time I'm gonna buy most offered figure from a line at SRP.
    Felt like I wanna buy them all at once. I'm really excited seeing WJ, CJ, OP, Grapple, Hoist, SS in their earth modes.

    I will get them all. G1 goodness.
    Micromasters can wait. But I'm intrigued with Ironworks.
    The fella have to base forms. It's like the old school Micromaster Battle stations having an earth mode and battle station mode but this time they given him a robot form. Great!

    It's no brainer CJ's engineering will have another characters sharing it.
    - Bumblebee / Goldbug
    - Throttlebots
    - Runamuck, etc.

    WJ's engineering will shared by:
    - Tracks
    - Sunstreaker

    Hoist's engineering will shared by:
    - Trailbreaker

    Grapple's engineering will shared by:
    - Inferno

    SScream's will born out T'cracker, Skywarp and the Coneheads

    Regarding Megatron...
    He'll have an earthmode... a "SUBMARINE" :lol

    To eliminate firearm kibble on the back, as for the legs I suspect something else needs the space as this point though the jury's out.
    Possible ramp for base attachment or trailer hitch plate?

    boy, Soundbarrier is literally made to die. Good job hasbro, making the pieces that are going to be removed and attached frequently out of clear plastic

    Looking at these samples, I'm hoping they're not final because the gray fists on Prime looks off. I'd hate having to wait for a 3rd Party company to make new hands to do what Hasbro SHOULD have done so I'm hoping this isn't final. Same with the blue in the trailer. Too much gray, lol.

    Oh and those new Cyberverse Warriors look MUCh better. Like, there's some main line engineering in those. That new Bumblebee looks great! That Optimus and Megatron are really slick too. I really think these should have been what Hasbro should have been doing from the start rather than very dumbed down Transformers with cheap gimmicks.

    At the event John Warden explained that they had to adjust the mold layout to get certain colors right and that whatever is grey now ended up changing from blue as consequence. Not something they chose to do on purpose. Hopefully things turn out differently but for now seems this is it for final colors :/

    The Cyberverse ones are not that bad, they\'re actually better than the recent figures, the only thing I don\'t understand is why it\'s called build a figure. When it comes to the WFC Earth RIse, I like it all, I really like Optimus, Starscream, and Cliffjumper.

    I don\'t like WFC Earth Rise Optimus\'s eyes, they paint it yellow, maybe homage to the original G1 figure.
