    Anyone have any idea how large Voy Starscream is? Is he a small-ish Voyager (like Octone) or a large Voyager?

    We don't really know yet. He was only on display with other toys that aren't out yet. Save for Overlord, but he hasn't had a wide release yet.

    Heck, I'd take a Cybertronian Bumper from Scamper...and...if they decide a new mold CJ...that'd be neat far as Glyph & Tapouts concerned...

    I feel like Starscream could be a pretool for a Thunderwing tool

    That's not what a pretool is.

    I get the feeling that Starscream will look better shot at a different angle, but for now I'm so down for that itsy bitsy pink and white bundle of hate known as Skullgrin! He will be mine! Also, probably the jet dudes.

    Starscream looks so awful IMO.


    Rodimus looks actually Hot (get it?).

    Jazz looks beautiful.

    looks like the deluxe mode for hot rod is gonna have a fake chest. not gonna lie, that really takes away from the figure imo. I'll likely still enjoy him, but damn thats disappointing

    What's the purpose of the larger gun pieces. They're almost foot like with the pegs on top. Starscream's definitely got something extra going on, like they said in the panel.

    On the official Transformers Facebook page. There's a few other official images.

    OK, the implementation of the armour is pretty awful. They don't flow with the figures' silhouette's at all. They're just holders for the Titan Master that are slapped onto the figures. Still, at least they don't seem intrusive to the base figure. Thankfully it looks like they're not HM like I thought was implied at the panel. I do I have to wonder what's up with Screamers giant arms, now that we know they're not the armour that was mentioned.

    I'd almost like to say that Hasbro made Starscream suck on purpose just to piss off everyone who wanted Voyager seekers.

    I'm really turned off by the blockiness of a lot of these figures. Rodimus Prime, great to get a leader class - but looks so un-dynamic and more like an articulated G1 figure with a little more detail. Jazz looks so much more... outdated than his previous Classics mold.

    Very glad to get Beachcomber, who with the exception of the Dinobots completes the pre-movie G1 Autobot crew! That said, I don't see how the Dinobots will fit in this line unless they're heavily butchered to fit the gimmick.

    Darkwing and Dreadwind? Oh yes. I'll definitely be picking them up. My originals are long gone and I had no idea how much I'd miss them. It's a shame the new ones don't seem to have the powermaster gimmick anymore, but they seem to have their combining gimmick and that's the more important one to keep. I'd prefer Voyager scale, but I'm just happy to see them again so Deluxe will work.

    Starscream looks to have an extremely bad case of robot on the undercarriage. But I'm a sucker for jets and he looks to be a pretty neat jet from the top. If I can let CW Silverbolt, Scattershot, and Cyclonus slide, then I can cut Starscream some slack.

    And I want that Rodimus Prime.

    Rodimus looks great....shame that I will never buy him cause...well you know. Out of all of the ones they showed...I guess jazz is a probable buy....not sure he will replace my RTS Jazz, but he is cool none-the-less.

    Was there confirmation that Jazz is limbable? The pictures I've seen have been ambiguous on the presence/absence of a CW peg.

    Notice the CW peg at his abdomen and port for a HFG on his left foot.
