    It seems to be one per wave based on leaks. Wildrider in wave 2, Deadend in wave 3 and Breakdown in wave 4.

    Are the TF-Prime figures not cartoon accurate enough? (That's a serious question, I didn't pay attention to the show.) We G1-ers chase that cartoon accuracy high because so many of our toys didn't match the cartoon. But if TF-Prime is your jam, don't you already have great toys to match the show?

    You know, I like the collector community here. But as you point out, some people in fandom get a little over their heads. It's your right to like or dislike anything you want. But, wow, feeling "betrayed" by Hasbro because they released a sculpt you don't like sounds like this person probably need to look after his mental well-being a bit.

    I have a G1 bias. (Is that what the youn'un whippersnappers call a "geewunner?") But I've always liked Bulkhead. Transformers has always flooded the shelves with redundant characters, but the few "characters" they allow to develop are few and far between. Bulkhead has actual character development. The "big guy." I liked him better as the gentle-giant smart guy in Animated. That show had heart.


    I like that balance in engineering that uses the parts of the vehicle mode to make the robot with as few faux parts and panel-forming as possible. Kingdom Optimus, Sideswipe, Cyclonus, *chef's kiss.*


    Bulkhead's usual design is distinctive in that he tends to have curves. I don't really like that his chest is just the cab of a truck. Could use more curves. Or, heavens-to-Betsy, panels to make it more robot-like. That's it. That's my critique.

    The whole scramble city ova was dumb. It was a one episode off shoot to sell toys and it worked for that. But I don't remember any teams getting mixed and matched up before or after that happened. The teams were always the same bots drawn in mostly the same order when the animation guys weren't sleep deprived. I want to see a dedicated team make a dedicated combiner.

    I understand, but you see, they could've simply reissued a 3 pack with all of them in the same colours in either of those special lines. Even I may have bought that. We had Odyssey collection, golden disc collection and various other specials. I assume Hasbro counts on the Insecticons popularity to milk our wallets with three deluxes. Well, not with me

    I liked that about Ruination in RID/Car Robots, that it didn't always combine the same way.

    Look, if you are good with what was, great. I didn't get the as legend size because I wanted them to be a bit bigger. This new one works for me and everyone else that wanted the same. If you are so bitter about kids toys you might want to take up a new hobby. The stress you seem to be under going on and on about all of this can't be good for your health.
    Buy want you want but put the soap box away because not everyone agrees with you.

    I know many people feel let down by the fact that Menasor will have slap on cars on his legs and arms but I'm not, for me it is not mainly about the combined mode - I usually prefer the team as individuals and it means the individual robots will only have to deal with two modes.
    Dragstrip looks pretty damn snazzy to me! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the gang, especially my boy Deadend. I hope the Ramjet and Dirge 2 pack gets another run (otherwise I might have to overpay on eBay some day for it) so I can have Deadend and Dirge hanging out and being all gloomy together - Misery loves company!

    I like the scramble gimmick because I had a blast with them as a kid. The toys came first and foremost. I didn’t have all the Combaticons (only Onslaught and Blast Off), so Onslaught would steal Protectobot and Aerialbot limbs to form Bruticus and fight to maintain control blah blah blah it was fun.

    Even if somebody already has the toys, I can see how they wouldn't like Hasbro throwing the Prime name on something that doesn't look like it came from that show. If you're not going to be consistent why even give them these kind of names?

    The issue with the scramble city is it results in worse off gestalts. I don’t want CW 2.0 I want good solid combiners. There’s not a single CW combiner that I look at and think “oh that’s great!”. They’re okay at best.

    I want them to still do it Scramble City-style, but if it ends up compromising anything, I can live without it. Boy, the CW toys really did age quickly, didn't they? I'll still always like them, but geez...

    Here’s another crazy idea, I want power linking from Energon back. That idea was cool!

    Yup. Unfortunately many were elusive and Some didn't scale well. Like Arcee. So I was happy to add characters I care about added to my growing G1 army, but then they dropped the ball making Arcee a deluxe again... I just wish they'd adopt a rule to never make / create deluxe sized motorcycle characters again. I bet RotB Arcee will be a deluxe yet again, because in the movie she'll mysteriously size shift to giant form only a head shorter than Bumblebee from a motorcycle :banghead: 

    Oh how much I would've fallen in love with this legacy line if only the listings read "core prime Arcee"

    Haha, you read way too much into my criticism. I don't care about the Insecticons at all

    Only thing that truly hurts is still no core class prime Arcee. Had high hopes that she's at least a mini deluxe with a lot of accessories but no..

    I would love to see that come back done with modern engineering! Toss in the Multiforce guys along with the Energon ones and you’ve got a fun line!

    Oh are people who spent years begging for screen accuracy suddenly realizing what that means for Menasor?
