    I haven't been less excited for something since the "Dark Energon" exclusives at BBTS.

    I assure the posters above me, you aren't missing much. There's a blue Commander Optimus, lots of Cyberverse with the same colors but kinda clear just like Abominus, Abominus, Predaking in Cryotek colors, a white Skystalker, and Grimwing in an all-new red and blue color scheme. Oh and a black Cyberverse Beast Hunters Bumblebee, just to throw a CURVEBALL in there.

    Oh yeah and Cyberverse Smokescreen in G1 colors might woo a few.

    I suppose the Hardshell redeco might get named Bombshock, I might pick that up if I saw it. The Deluxe/Voyager Predacons might have new names with their colors so different.

    SKY LYNX!

    ...is a Predacon?

    The line seems to be:

    - Commander 2-Pack - Optimus Prime and Predaking (Thunder Clash and RID Megatron (?) homages)
    - Commander 2-Pack - Shockwave and Bombshock (G1 Shockwave and Barrage homages)
    - Legion Scale 2-Pack - Bumblebee and Blight (stealth deco and (?) homage)
    - Legion Scale 2-Pack - Smokescreen and Cindersaur (G1 Smokescreen and obvious homage)
    - Abominus Combiner 5-Pack
    - Voyager Dark Steel (Grimwing redeco)
    - Voyager Cryofire Predaking
    - Deluxe Sky Lynx (Skystalker redeco)
    - Deluxe Nova Blast Bumblebee

    I don't get the Blight repaint. Who is it an homage to?

    That Cryofire Predaking looks tempting though... that could be a nice stand in for an updated Cryotek.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he's listed as a Predacon defector though.

    I think Darksteel and Cryofire look awesome. Was kinda hoping for a Ser-ket repaint though!

    Darksteel could very well be a Deszaras homage, the paint palette is similar, as well the alt mode

    That Cryofire Predaking is ungodly dull. Sky Lynx is cool just to have a modern toy named Sky Lynx. Dark Steel looks neat, a bit more visually striking than Grimwing.

    The Cyberverse repaints are really boring, too. You'd think they'd use the opportunity to redeco Hardshell into more G1/show-accurate colors, but he's just brighter green and bright blue. And Shockwave isn't changed at all.

    Where are you seeing the names? EDIT DURR ANGUIRUS REMEMBERS HOW FACEBOOK WORKS

    I have to admit, it IS nice seeing the name Sky Lynx again. Cindersaur is kind of an inspired way to use that Rippersnapper mold. Can't believe they didn't have the cojones to name Predaking Cryotek.

    I think they're going for a "G1 deco" kind-of-thing with Shockwave, given the yellow eye and pink chest and gun.

    Also, just occurred to me: each assortment only has two figures/packs. Everyone excited for four Nova Blast Bumblebees per case? :D

    Okay, yeah, I see that now. Still, pretty minuscule change. At least go for a Shackwave/Animated color scheme or something.
