    According to the Transmissions leaks the remold/recolor of that Bumblebee is Throttlebot Chase! Maybe someone will make a Cliffjumper head for him?

    SHARKTICON!!!


    And Guyhawk looks awesome in pink! :D 

    So Whirl and Roadbuster are because the previous two weren't good enough? :lol  I'm astonished you think so. I mean, what makes you think any of these toys are direct responses to fan choices? Hasbro consistently makes what it THINKS fans want, but rarely engages the fans directly for input: i.e. Tankor, or Platinum YoM Optimus Primal, or Roadbuster. :lol  I'm sorry: I hate the insinuation (or direct comment) that Hasbro is doing what fans want. I think they sometimes get lucky and hit the target... but I'm not convinced it's because they know what they're doing. At least with the next Titan, they polled fans and are actually delivering the Titan people want... but whether or not it turns out adequate or sloppy? I've seen companies that work with fans/customers: don't say Hasbro is one of them, as it's not. :rolleyes2 

    And another thing? They need to stop wasting original molds on characters that shouldn't get the mold. I mean, I get the exclusive SS from Blitzwing thing Takara did (it was an exclusive variant type of deal); but using a future Blitzwing as a shoehorned Megatron is OBNOXIOUS. It makes Megs the secondary character (someone who does NOT deserve his own mold?).

    Same with Astrotrain and Sentinel Prime. Okay, fine... but at least make Astrotrain FIRST. I really don't appreciate Hasbro wasting the mold with re-paints before the intended character - it's going to wholly increase mold fatigue before the main platter is even served. Fail.

    Bumblebee looks amazing! So does Gnaw and Brainsteom.

    Megatron is definitely a dream come true for me. But I can see if people disagree with me.

    On the plus side the back of the box shows us a tiny glimpse of Leader Sixshot and Voyager Optimus Prime.

    Yeah, I don't know what kind of human sacrifices had to happen to get all that gorgeous silver paint on CW Megatron, but TR Megs looks awful in all that grey. I know people are annoyed of hearing it, but I'm gonna wait and see what Takara does. Same with Liokaiser, though I am impressed at all the new heads.

    Are you saying there should be a hierarchy in molds where a popular character shouldnt have to share his mold with a less popular one :confused: 
    And that these fictional characters somehow did something to "deserve" things ?

    Gnaw is great. I won't lie. I'll be one of those guys, 'cuz I want to get 5 or so of them. It just BEGS to be bought en masse!

    Brainstorm is pretty awesome. I'm actually pretty high on the OG G1 headmaster guys after getting TR Hardhead and Skullcruncher, so I'll probably get them all.

    TR Megs...eh. I'll stick with my TF United and CW versions. No interest in Megatron in this style. No real interest in non-Headmasters who are Headmasters now, anyways.

    Liokaiser...yeah, no. Mindful of the legacy of the team, yet removing Leozack and Jallguar from the team? Yeah, fuck you too Hasbro.

    Ugh, couldn't they at least just retool Silverbolt into Leozack instead of giving us a random Skylynx repaint?

    Let's hope 3P makes a replacement figure(s) for the torso :/


    Megatron looks interesting, but the legs are the wrong color. I'll wait to see the Takara version if I'm to get one.

    That definitely caught me by surprise, but I certainly applaud Hasbro for that.

    Dezaras though is still laughably bad along with that 2-for-1 black head discount they got with Bruticus for the combiner head.

    I think they do a pretty good job of keeping these designs secret.
    I remember a time when the figure designs were regularly leaked. Quite nice to see a whole wave of toys side by each like this.

    pretty sure everything here except Bumblebee and the Titanmasters had visually leaked already, and we had also heard about BB.

    Titan Master Sawback looks like an homage to G1 Japanese Headmaster Leone.

    You are right. The first thought in my head was Under-3, he's definitely Lione!
