    Not sure if you were making a joke or not, but those are just production sample numbers. They won't be there on the retail release.

    But it’s clearly visible from the front with no way to hide it

    Cliff jumper, Grapple, Prime, and Hoist look terrific....amazing even. That bodes well for Bee, Inferno, and Trailbreaker.

    The rest is OK. Starscream alt looks good. I guess I’m still not entirely into the blockyness of recent designs..but I ultimately am pleased as punch to see updated G1 modes of these guys. How long did it take to get a proper chug seeker, a decade? Lol.

    I notice a distinct flavor of different designers working on these. Wheeljack’s bulk and square shoulders remind me of Siege Prowl. Grapple has much more rounded and proportional look, adhering to the Masterpiece figure.

    Also why is there a robot on the back of that shield?

    These last couple of reveals have been rather disappointing. Last figure I saw that really got me excited was Apeface.

    cliffjumper looks fine in robot mode but the alt mode looks more like windcharger, maybe that’s the point.

    Grapple looks fine but masterpiece is superior

    Hoist looks fine but masterpiece version is coming sooner then later, think I’ll wait.

    Optimus prime I’m not buying anymore Optimus prime figure, no more, that’s it I’m done.

    Ironworks this is a surprise, think I’ll get him to go with omega but not in any hurry

    Wheeljack if he had been the Cybertron version I’d be all over this but again masterpiece is superior.

    Starscream, I always felt like the masterpiece version never did the seekers justice, and even though a masterpiece Starscream v3 might be around the corner, I’m all in on this mold, Thundercracker, Skywarp, thrust, dirge, ramjet bring them all on!


    I don’t think any of these figures will make a pre order list, will just pick them up from Walmart if/when I see them while grocery shopping.

    It looks like his legs will tab together and he’ll spin at the waist to transform which would actually put the peg right where it needs to be

    The Cyberverse figures are a pleasant surprise, looks like Hasbro listened.

    Optimus and Starscream look like decent modern G1 figures, but not much else from Earthrise is jumping out at me yet. Might just be the choice of characters.

    Wheeljack blows my mind!

    That car mode is so incredibly sleek, well proportioned and still Stratos-evocative without actually being one.

    The rest are marvelous too.

    I had the same reaction re: Starscream and the Geewunness of this new line. Hasbro has done a nice job of wrangling me back into the main line with Jetfire, Omega, Reflector, etc., and I'm happy that they seem to want to continue giving us, or at least us Geewunners, what we want.

    I saw that Starscream and thought, "I really could have used you 13 years ago." Totally looks like an upsized Classics/Henkei seeker. I look forward to picking up him and his repainted buddies...they'll stand in until Takara gives us MP seekers worth buying.

    Already have an MP Grapple, but this one looks very good as well. I'm particularly excited about Cliffjumper out of this batch. Again, it'll stand in well until we get an MP version, and it'll partner up really well with the upcoming MP Hound.

    Ah, man. I got really excited for a minute there. I thought Hasbro was rereleasing UW Roller. He was really the only figure I wanted out of that set and never got him.

    then paint them. that's literally a deal breaker for me, not because they HAVE to be blue, but because they look terrible in grey.
    (if i'm paying $50 for a voyager it better be near 100%)

    heck, i'd rather have blue fists then articulated fingers.

    Well, very excited about this line


    Seeing Starscream, the more i think the coneheads are coming.
    I didn't see the coneheads from the tetrajet mode: too heavy retool of wings and cone heads could'nt fit.
    Some people are disapointed to see Starscream again , but he might be the retool of the coneheads, and he is an easy sell for both collectors and kids, everyone knows starscream

    The Classics super chunky one with the jetski jetpack. The Mustang retread while kind of cool had a lot of QC issues and was kinda hollow-feeling.

    WOW! Loving all of these reveals! WFC Earthrise is gonna be awesome!

    Finally a proper Cliffjumper! Look at that headsculpt!
    Starscream makes me feel like it's 2006 again, I'm really diggin' the Classics vibe. Can I have Thundercracker and Skywarp, pretty please?
    Hoist is great, can't wait for Trailbreaker! The truck mode also reminds me of Gears a little bit. At first I thought of him as a possible retool, but then that wouldn't really work in bot mode...

    Glad to see Wheeljack finally! He's totally a Sunstreaker pretool.
    Didn't think I'd need another Prime, but man, that truck mode and trailer look amazing! Bot mode is impressive as well!
    Everything else, micromasters, Grapple, Ironworks... I want them all!!!
