    These look good! Not getting my kids the same ones they got from Siege. But, the Prime is good and the tetra jets were done pretty well minus the finicky chest piece. Ready for that Wheeljack and Scorpok.

    Yeah, may have to double dip on the Seekers, that jet mode looks great. Grapple looks incredible, can’t wait to see the inevitable Inferno retool. Hoist surprisingly looks good too, and I love how they kinda tease Trailbreaker by having his force field generator attached to Hoist’s back in a few pics. I love that we’re getting an original take on Cliffjumper and I’m glad he’s not gonna be a bug like Bee. Gives me hope that the eventual Bee redeco won’t be a straight repaint. Love the new gimmick with Micromaster bases. Ironworks even makes for a decent robot.

    And dammit........ I may have to get one last Optimus Prime.

    Oh yeah, and.........WHEELJACK!!!!!!

    They said on the video that needed to gauge fan demand on a collected set of the blast effects. I know I would LOVE that.

    Well Hoist looks just marvelous. Him and Grapple are definite buys for me. Cliffjumper will also be added to that list along with (a hopeful) Thundercracker repaint of Starscream.
    Wheeljack is a maybe, he looks great but I'm also quite happy with the previous Generations version.
    Micromasters will be bought when/if I see them at retail. Happy to have more little guys to run around the City bots.

    Tell me about it....right in the feels. That's one of the things I loved about my local Toys R US and Hills department store when growing up. During Christmas time, they would covert the end cap spaces in the toy isles into little dioramas to showcase the figures. You would have entire He-Man, GI Joe, Transformers, and sometimes even Barbie layouts which I still fondly think back on.

    Eh I actually don't care. If Siege has taught me anything, the figures tend to look way better in real life (even if 3D-printed prototypes) than they do in their CAD file drawings. I'm happy that they actually showed off the physical models.

    I suddenly don't feel bad about dragging my feet about Siege Starscream.

    earth starscream feels like the weakest announcement, the articulation feels like a big downgrade from siege scream and even some the just announced deluxes, no waist swivel, no wrist, no butterfly, and no back and forward on the ankles

    But the jet mode is super smooth, sacrifices were made. The right ones, i think.

    My gripes at seeing the same designs for characters in every Generations line aside, I bloody love the look of that Cliffjumper!

    I'll probably be in for Optimus, Grapple and Wheeljack too, if the reviews are good, but Starscream looks like a step down from Siege in terms of articulation, due to following the Classics figure a bit too closely.

    It's funny that Cyberverse, of all things, is giving us the first ever figure of Macadam, rather than him appearing in Generations.

    Honestly I think ER Prime may have gone from a definite buy to not at all.
    There are a few little things that bother me about him. None of them alone would stop me from buying him, but all of them together just might.

    -The grey hands
    -The extremely narrow front wheels
    -The combination of his really long legs and short torso
    -The eye color
    -The Leader Class price
    -The grey chunks on the inside of his shins

    It's still a very nice looking Prime, but with all of these issues, I just don't know if he is enough for me to de-throne my Siege version over.
