    it should be something on those lines.

    By the way, regarding Optimus gray hands, do you think there will be any chance that they'll be painted blu in the final product like it happened with Ultra Magnus' gun? In the prototypes it was red, but after the complaint of the fandom they painted it silver for the final release.

    So they won't have it in the actual product, right? WJ is kinda fine, but OP is definitely not.

    The final product definitely won’t have it. It’s probably how they keep track of prototype Inventory and in the case of theft.

    This seema to be going in order honestly.

    Cybertron war, earth, then maybe earth with rodimus and the majority of the season 3/4 cast? Like Galvatron, Rodimus, etc.

    They already have Magnus and Springer, there are plenty more season 3/4 bots that haven't had an update recently. And if they have they were a headmaster xD

    Let’s pass on retools and hope for original designs. Granted Hoist/Trailbreaker and Grapple/Inferno share designs.

    It's possible, there is plenty of time to do it.

    His inner leg will always be grey though, no changing that.

    I'd say that's a fair sacrifice to get some blue on the hands.

    can't ever recall a transformer who turned into a stretch of highway so I want to say yes

    that's all kinds of insane but wonderful at the same time...

    and there was a card showing a centipede/hoverboard character who will presumably be toyified too...

    I mostly collect MP, but with the current prices I might end up picking from this line the characters that aren't my priorities like Hoist or Grapple.

    You can also use the Scorponok head that came with Grotusque from Titans returns. Plus it is diecast.

    I just realized. The Cyberverse figures are deluxes. They each come with one part of Macaddam right? There were four shown right? So if there are like ~10 pieces of the dude, then who else could show up in this new line of Cyberverse figures? Windblade is probably one

    It's like something from Robo Capers. That alone is reason enough to love it.

    Does Macaddam not have knee articulation? It looks to me like he might not.

    So after a bad day yesterday, I was finally able to look at the pictures this morning to see what I thought of everything. Everything is....ok I guess...honestly though, I'm not overly impressed. Prime will be nice as long as they make his hands blue, and Grapple is cool looking although he's so freaking hollow, and Hoist is good as well.

    The others however, I find lacking. Starscream is an upscaled Classics version with better articulation, which is fine as I used to own a dozen or so of that mold, but because of that design choice he looks fatter as well, which affects both of his modes. Cliffjumper has a heck of a backpack, although not as bad as Chromia, so hopefully it can be positioned a little better in hand. Wheeljack looks off with that squared off window in his bot mode, and that white on him is horrible. Hopefully that gets changed before his release.

    The Cyberverse Deluxes look pretty neat though, it's amazing how much added articulation and the lack of restricting gimmicks can improve one's thought process in a toy line.

    The centipede/hoverboard characher was Turbo Board. It was a modern update of Action Master Jazz's partner. Turbo Board - Transformers Wiki

    It seems everyone has forgotten that leader POTP Optimus has grey hands as well.
    So maybe Hasbro decided to have prime going forward with grey vs the original g1 coloring?

    You say that, but in general it wouldn't be. We've seen that play out time and time again.
