    Is Lionizer the only one getting that effect part? That's disappointing considering how versatile they're making it. No doubt they'll sell a repaint of him as they so often do. As long as they don't recolor the effect part that'll be a good way get 2 of them.

    I'm still tempted to get into this line, and this is coming from someone that has mainly bought 3rd party figures these past couple of years and has only picked up a few official Legends figures.

    These actually look.....fun to me.:eek: 

    The returned articulation and fewer gaps of empty plastic is a big help.

    Not to mention to get Lionizer in the first place you have to get Hound. So if you want two that's double dipping a $20 dollar plus tax figure. Crossing my fingers there's some sort of single release for Lionizer or at least a re-use of the effect.

    Speaking of Action master partners, come on Push-Button!

    That was actually a miscommunication, the battlemasters are all sold separately from the other figures, so it's only like, the price of buying a titan master or prime master for one.

    I love what I’m seeing with the generations line, I hope they retool/repaint Sideswipe into Sunstreaker and Red Alert, and make Rachet out of Ironhide.

    What is the name of the blue Ravage? I hope it’s Howlback like it’s supposed to be.

    Yea I guess we are getting a voyager Megatron (saw it on Seibertron) for WFC Seige and a voyager Starsceam too ;)  and it totally is Lionizer, I was completely wrong. I was going off the fact 4 years ago that would of been Steeljaw I was wrong wrong wrong ××)

    My stupid phone broke so I couldn't log in bc the Google account was corrupted. Now that I'm back long enough to have time to amswr all these notifications, I was thinking it was the blue female arm that combines with Inferno (Moonracer, both have G1 cartoon names from when I was a kid. And wasn't Ironhide Chromias bf?) Chromia, was said to be remolded without the combined parts in the Hasbro panel. ;)

    The troubles with today. Way back into 2005 10 years into collecting Transformers then, the toys had stayed at the same cost the entire time, and for some time after, and had quality of a $80 action figure today for less then what were paying now. Leaders were $29.99 voyagers 15.99 deluxes 7.99. But yeah I need that Soundwave in Takara game colors (I don't play the game but colors are nice lol)

    Yeah they used better plastic on the joints at least from my experience Hasbros toy is inferrior. It's probably bc Takara it's grey solid plastic over Orange plastic Hasbro used IIRC.

    I've got Soundwave twice already - Hasbro & Takara, for the Soundwave and Soundblaster Titanmasters - so I don't think I can spring for another unless they show up here in the UK at discount..... which is a distinct possibility given they're likely destination - many Target exclusives go to Tescos in the UK.

    All over the tape box, despite the one step.
