    Whyyyy Hasbro....This line would have been so perfect if they didn't try to force the headmaster gimmick on everything...

    Looks like I'm going cherry picking, a lot of the deluxes look good.

    I'm skipping Doublecross if they're not bothering with the full trio of monsterbots.

    Black Shadow looks nice, but will hold off till Overlord. I would have been happier if Blackshadow was a re-use of the Leader Jetfire mold, which I initially thought.

    Brawn and Kickback are MUSTS!

    Broadside looks cool, carrier mode looks good. With his release and Octane we can finally complete the triple changer trios.

    Words can't express how great a majority of these figures look. The only ones I'm not interested in are Sky Shadow and Breakaway. The rest are aces.

    Titans Return has been and will continue to be THE BEST transformers line to come out in a long, long time. I didn't think Combiner Wars could be topped. But Hasbro did it.

    Those pre-applied stickers look like gaaaarbage. I really hoped we were done with stickers on the Voyagers after we got two waves without them. And pre-applied no less, so I don't even have the option to leave them off. I'm also not loving the lack of Broadside's ax. After waiting three decades for a non-loser Broadside, my feelings are...mixed.

    Once again you prove how this is a bad mindset to have, because it's been over a year since his release, and you're STILL bitching about Alpha Bravo.

    You plan on stopping at any point?

    Probably not. But I am legit happy I don't have to deal with him on the flight deck of Broadside!
    I hope the stickers aren't pre-applied and are part of a sticker set. G1 toy numbering and GI Joe CVN-99 USS Flagg markings...

    I'm sure Reprolabels will do a GI Joe themed set but it'd be great if Hasbro uses this as another opportunity to reference GI Joe in Transformers.

    Man, I really want to like Sixshot, but those alt-modes are leaving me cold. I realize it\'s a tall order to have that many decent looking vehicle modes, but I don\'t see one I really like aside from the flying dog/wolf.

    Perceptor, as others have noted, looks really cool, and I\'m surprised by how much I like Brawn and Sky Shadow (don\'t really know the latter as a character). My son\'s got a weakness for cars with flame paint jobs, so I\'ll likely get Hot Rod. Is Triggerhappy a new mold? He looks oddly familiar.

    Per Unicron.com who also have representatives at NYCC here's a few highlights of TR Perceptor:

    The lens actually works and is made up of the same type of plastic as the G1 toy. The design team modeled the barrel of the scope after the G1 toy as well.

    Perceptor does indeed have a 3rd tank mode just like the G1 toy.

    Perceptor's headmaster is meant to be a smaller nano surgeon version of himself and has the same faceplate as the G1 toy.

    This line wouldn't have happened without the headmaster gimmick.

    You're looking at the glass half empty, I'm looking at it half-full.

    Just remember guys that the only reference to the micro Aerial Bots calls them: Aerial Bots sprue kit. You may be able to by them on there own. I dont know how the retail side of it would work as they have never sold something like this....maybe a hasbro shop thing. Heres the quote from tformers
    Just in by way of RFC and TFormers we have new images of Broadside, Sky Shadow and more Transformers. Keep checking back as more news and images will be coming in from the event as we speak! Just added Perceptor w/ Convex, Repugnus, Fangry, Sixshot, Brawn, Hotrod, Kickback, Shuffler, Arialbots spru-kit, Trigger Happy, Twinfeno, Autobot Petro, Breakaway, Triple Change Optimus Prime, RID Bludgeon, RID Stormshot, RID Combiners, Marvel Deathshead 2 and more - high-res images just added!

    I was really hoping for a Seaspray reveal, but all in all this is a very nice display. Definitely still getting prime rodimus and Megatron from this next wave. We will see if the wallet holds enough for triggerhappy and getaway. Skyshadow had my interest piqued for Overlord. It would be great if we could get these in time to be Christmas presents.
