    Seems like Megatron, Flywheels and the Micromasters are the final product while Soundwave & Friends, Scream and Brunt are still prototypes.

    Hard to tell if Shockwave is hand painted or final.

    Not as excited about the cons as I was the autobots.

    Just my quick thoughts
    -Brunt is a very welcome surprise
    -Flywheels looks amazing, but extremely disappointed at no individual bot modes
    -Megs is a right beast(and I instantly want The Fallen retool out of the mold)
    -Shockwave............the more I look at him up close the more I ask Fwhy? The thruster face especially is just kind of why that design choice. Extremely disappointed in that one.
    -Soundwave is Soundwave
    -Reflector does look quite good but I honestly don't care about the character(s)
    -YAY for individual release of Laserbeak and Ravage I must haz the precious!!!!!!(I can already picture the many pictures of Nautica cuddling wittle ravage already)
    -Kind of miffed at no up close of the micromasters........stood bloody want the duo badly nonetheless.
    -Oh Starscream........yeah don't give a shit about him.

    Well that's my quicky thoughts back to gawking at Brunt.

    Everything looks fun. Great sculpting, lots of interaction between the figures (and their own armor bits). MTMTE pt.1 Laserbeak! Brunt looking pretty much backwards compatible with Trypticon. Flywheels! The smooth way Shockwave's laser gun mode is actually incorpated into his alt mode. Soundwave managing to pull off his lamppost/terminal mode. Heck even Starscream's kibbly undercarriage manages not to be as distracting as it normally would for me.

    And yeah...I don't get the complaints about Reflector. You don't have to by three, but damn if they didn't give you one HELL of a good reason to actually do so.

    Having the legs slung under the tetra jet is definitely unclean as heck. Hopefully someone comes up with kneecaps that turn them into turbines or missile pods.

    Now I know what Shockwave's four-arms mode reminds me of--it's the Gundam Gusion Rebake!

    Soundwave looks cool in bot mode - it\'s essentially the MP version with a ton of Greeble. The alt mode sucks. Don\'t care if it\'s supposed to cybertronian or not, they phoned it in

    I think it's still a valid complaint. I remember hearing that the new MSRP for the deluxes is $19.99, so that's almost $60 for a "complete" Reflector.

    But at the same time, i'm one of those suckers planning to pay that :lol

    This looks awesome but megatron looks like one of those walmart exclusive vinal figures+plus the cannon is way too far up on his arm and looks like he has cheap plastic but all others looks amazing.

    I think Refractor :rolleyes: , will ether shelfwarm or sell out. His camera mode will be a rare completion for may collectors.

    1 on the self, Pass
    2 on the self, Pass
    3 on the shelf, $60... Pass

    Honestly he has a bad vehicle mode, and a $60 Retro combined mode.

    The Studio Series Price Point is not friendly to Army Building.

    Things I've noticed and liked:

    1. New Cassettes seem that take queues from MPs. These are a huge step up from the TR figures. I wonder if Ravage will come with Soundwave or be in a two pack with someone else. EDIT: Nevermind, just saw he comes with Laserbeak.
    2. Also love the callback to Hound & Ravage from CHUG.
    3. Flywheels feet are huge! Much appreciated.
    4. Is it just me or does the weaponized Con Airstrike Patrol look like Armada Star Saber? Even better being in Starscream's hand.
    With the reveal of the Decepticons, I now find myself a lot more excited for Siege. Shockwave looks amazing. This is the figure we've always deserved for the guy. I'm really looking forward to the playability of the weapon modes for the smaller figures.

    So disappointed in how Reflector was handled. Corporate greed that only favors Hasbro, online retailers and scalpers. That WAS one of the figures I was most excited about and it just became a wet fart.

    Been looking at his alt mode, and think you might be able to pull off a tape player mode with it.

    I don't know why I'm surprised that Laserbeak's head is EXACTLY LIKE THE ORIGINAL 'TOON.

    This line is going to be great.

    -Love Flywheels, totally cool with just individual vehicle modes for him.

    -Shockwave is not what I expected but it looks like it could be just armor so classic Shockwave may be lurking in there.

    -Digging the Megatron sculpt, looks like he'll go perfect with Seige Optimus. Alt mode is a little iffy.

    -Aside from the excessive greebling I really like that Starscream, might be the best one we've got since Classics.

    -Soundwave looks solid, same with Reflector. Again they went overboard with the greeble but whatevs.

    -Brunt. Nuff said.

    So yeah, pretty sure I'm buying everything.

    Looks fantastic. Love all the sculpted details. Stupid excited about that flywheels.

    only things I’m not really feeling is megatron’s headsculpt and shockwave. Seriously, wtf is that shockwave, who thought that combined mode looked good?

    Is the weathered stuff just for the display? I know some people really dig that kind of thing, but I\'m not a fan.
