It probably is gonna go something like this. Studio Series, POTP, RiD Combiner Force is on shelves now. It'll change to Bumblebee Movie line, Cyberverse wave 1, & G1 rereleases. Then NEXT YEAR/WINTER it'll be Studio Series wave 3-4 (in retail I'm sure they will be out other places sooner) Cyberverse wave 2 & up, WFC Seige next year. Something like that. My Walmart, I bought my voyager POTP figures, but my Wal-Mart hasn't had leader class PERIOD since Generations leader 2 Megatrons per case (ARmada/G1) These all have the same type of gimmick. Except "scout" class, aka legions class aka Legends class, have half transform gimmicks. I was thinking the same thing but I'm not sure either even after mulling over the images more then 30 mins each lol Not quite. Scout Class is the old Legends size (3.5") Warrior Class is staying the same size (5.5"), Ultra is voyager sized (7"), Ultimate is larger then Leader Class OR size of ROTF Leaders (10"). Hope this helps! The price is down, no?. 14.99 Warrior, 24.99 ultra, 29.99 Ultimate. And it depends on the show & how well it's recieved, No? It's not a repaint. Plus doesn't the show dictate whether or not it's a direct match. ;-) I don't think he has to do with this toyline like you think he does. Until u get hooked on the show like we all did with animated? Joking around aside, u do realize Shockwave doesn't have a regular hand in most incarnations? Ahhh but you seem to not see the bigger picture which I believe is that instead of cutting down more parts count and more hollow parts, let alone keeping the costs from rising, this unification may be protecting us from all that PLUS Hasbro adult figures are FINALLY the correct decos after 18 years of them screwing up! It's beautiful! Ultra class are 24.99 & 7" to 7.5" inches (& Ultimate Class is a whopping 10" !!! Not to mention only 29.99!) Doubt it but these are supposed to be pretty solid once we get into the more collector sizes (Ultra & Ultimate) Warrior has right elbow, not left. Ultimate has none but has dual hips, dual shoulders, deep knees, head, and (technically has) butterfly joints Depends on how well the show is received I'm guessing.
