    I just noticed Brainstorm's titanmaster is named Teslor, which is weird because it's not even similar sounding to Arcana and we know they already have the trademark for that, right?

    Its so beautiful!

    At first I was hesitant on Liokaiser but seeing as how I display my combiners in individual robot modes and they really did them justice I think.

    Looks like I found my CHUG Megatron, looks well done but the tank mode could use a little work but then again the jet mode is just perfect. I smell a Blitzwing retool!

    Also really like Bumblebee & Gnaw, don't need yet another CHUG Bee (already have 3) but I do like this one and can't wait to see the repaint/retool potential. Gnaw though is so perfect and a cute little chubby thing, might get three.

    And PLEASE tell me we get confirmation of a retail release of Brainstorm! I can't enjoy the voyager and would love to have one that I can love.

    The only good thing about Liokaiser are the new heads. But it doesn't work at all in CW format. Two members are missing in favor of a weird Deathsaurus hybrid and no breastmasters. Definitely have to go 3P on this one.

    Megatron looks ok but it needs a better paint job.

    Love Bumblebee, especially as it looks like he open to seat a Titanmaster.

    Gnaw looks great but don't look too closely at the elbows or you'll notice he can't do a straight arm pose.

    Megatron looks MUCH better now we can see his other modes and screams "We're so sorry for T30 Blitzwing, here have a new one" (Does that make the Op a Pretool for Octane?) It'd be nice if the gun and cannon attached the same way so you could swap them ala Quake's Targetmasters and his tank gun but .....

    I know he's great but a THIRD Crashbash? Like Sawback.

    Liokaiser looks fab, v pleased with new heads. Would have liked the jets to be the same, preferably the one the blue one uses, buthey ho knew that wasn't the case from the artwork.

    Insert Fry "Shut Up and Take My Money!" meme here.

    Definitely want that Megatron and the inevitable Blitzwing, the Bee, maybe Liokaiser, gnaw...

    Very, very awesome stuff so far. :D 

    Bumblebee looks super cool, as does Gnaw!

    Triple Changer Megatron looks epic, pretty nice looking figure from these pics. Liokaiser looks surprisingly awesome too. With that larger Starscream figure, here's hoping he appears in the TV series.

    Love Overkill and Sawback too. I thought Overboard was a name for a Titanmaster of Overlord for a second.

    A few thoughts:

    I really love that Bumblebee.

    I wonder how Sawback's (That is the name of the lion, right?) head would look on Sentinel Prime?

    I will buy the Sharkticon, even if I'm not blown away by it.

    I can't wait until the Megatron gets retooled as Blitzwing!

    I was hoping for Kup, Perceptor, and Rodimus,

    Sawback is an homage to the Autobot Headmaster Warrior Lione.

    If true the first two are somewhat down the line.

    Rodimus is a possibility later though.

    Megatron looks way better than the CW version.

    CW Megs' knee bend is <90 degrees. TR Megs looks at least 90 degree bend. No more weird red shoulder joints either.
    Overal, proportions look better and he does 2 altmodes.

    The working treads mechanism hampered the overal engineering of CW Megs imo.

    Hmm? There's no indication they've got the Arcana name. The T30 Brainstorm figure just called him a "pilot" with no name.

    Megatron? Yes.
    Deathsaurus? Boo.
    Everything else? Good.

    good stuff. I fear Gnaw is going to hit crazy prices as everyone including me is going to want to army build him.

    Gnaw will be mine.

    Brainstorms robot mode is good, but the alt mode looks a bit underwhelming. I'll stick with my T30 Brainstorm.

    Bumblebee looks great for those who want a more petite guy. I'll stick w/my classics bee though.

    I hope they show some of the leaked figslike Getaway , Triggerhappy or even the alleged OVerlord or sixshot.

    I have to admit, I am impressed by Deathsaurus, given the limitations, (skylynx remould). But I do really like skylynx.

    In regards to Gnaw: About bloody time!
