    Legends Sharktcon Gnaw and Bumblebee, Voyager Megatron (looks good) and Liokaiser. If Takara does their version, I may get Hasbro's version to give Galvatronus his own team. I like Deathsaurus - or whoever that is - as a standalone figure.

    My thoughts based on the twitter photos:

    All of the Titan Master and Legends class are pretty great. Bumblebee is a great scale-down of the Classics deluxe. Though it's not obvious if he plays with the gimmick or ignores it? Looks like a headmaster can ride in Gnaw's mouth?

    Megatron is a great looking figure but I'm still content with the CW version. The Blitzwing is obvious but I really hope we get an Overlord from it as well.

    Liokaiser is pretty great! I think the new heads really sell it.

    Liokaiser looks as bad as I feared it to be. This isn't Deathsaurus at all.

    Others, I like.

    Megatron's not great, but not bad either. This will be a great Blitzwing, though.

    That legends bumblebee creates moisture
    I love it.

    Also, Liokaiser is sexy, even though I'm not really into Japanese G1. They really managed to capture the same torso aesthetic using only a single figure.
    I'm liking the way Gnaw looks, and Megatron came sooner than I was expecting, but I don't think I'll end up picking up the mold because I have a CHUG Megatron and I have the previous Generations Blitzwing. I hope we get confirmation on Brainstorm's release outlet, and I hope we get to see Octane/Laser Prime on display, he's one in really excited for.

    Looks like Bumblebee can likely drive Titanmasters around just like Wheelie.

    I am shocked that Hasbro have given new heads to the limbs of Leokaiser! Pleasantly shocked. It is an instant buy for me now. In an ideal world they would have used silverbolt to make Leozack, but the colour scheme of that Sky Lynx is right up my alley.

    That Megatron is Amazing. That Voyager with CW megs paint scheme and I would be a happy chappy. Make it happen Takara!

    Bumble is great, a nice smaller replacement for classics Bee.

    Can't wait to see more in the next few days.

    That Megatron could make a great Blitzwing. :D 

    Gnaw is kinda subpar, but for $10 can't really complain.

    Sawback looks like it will go great with Sentinel Prime, but is anyone else reminded of the Headmaster Galvatron killed way back in RID #30 or so?

    Yeah, couldn't work out why the small square bit at the front of the windscreen but I think its the hinge.

    I'd like to see megatron redone as blitzwing.

    Megs looks like he transforms into both megatrons tank and starscream...

    And are Gnaw and Bee more like the old scout class size?

    Nice mix of new and old figures.
    Nice to see Gnaw getting some attention.

    Bumblebee and Brainstorm look great! Gotta get those two.

    Megatron looks alright, and he could be a good replacement for the old classics figure. But I'm saving up for all the 3P Megatrons, so he's a no for me.

    Why is HasTak launching an all out assault on my wallet? Liokaiser, Megatron, Gnaw and Bumblebee are definite pick ups.

    Megatron? Pass. CW version is better, especially since this mold is supposed to be Blitzwing anyways. The mold might look decent as Blitzwing, let’s wait and see.

    Bumblebee and Gnaw? Awesome.

    Liokaiser? It hurts me physically to look at him. Jesus Christ that thing is horrible. Deathsaurus my ass. Takara, I know I talked bad about you because of the weird Super Ginrai feet but please, please annihilate this shit. To be fair, the individual robots are decent (even though Hellbat’s head is bad IMO) but that remolded/repainted Sky-Lynx is neither Deathsaurus nor the torso of Liokaiser. It’s trash and belongs in the nearest garbage can.
