    That Megatron looks great. I know everyone is talking about how it's an obvious Blitzwing, but I'm hoping for a Flywheels, considering we already got the head. Now we just need a Springer to make a Battletrap.

    Good eye!

    I was wondering where Sawback came from. :D

    Bumblebee and Gnaw are definite pickups - probably 2x Gnaw if I can find him. Skipping on Megs, prefer my CW version (especially with Leader class Prime out to match his size), and I'll probably want that mold as Blitzwing anyway. Hoping we get more reveals as this weekend progresses!

    I'm not usually a troop-builder, but I'm somewhat interested in having a few of these.

    I like everything I see (for the most part)! Megs shines in robot mode, and the other two modes are so-so. The jet mode looks cool but that red just doesn't fit. The tank mode almost works except you see the folded wings all over the place. Maybe it'll look better in Blitzwing's colors. I'm also not a fan of those stickers...

    Leokaiser looks like a lot of fun. I'm really excited about that. Sure, its not a 100% homage/update but its good enough in my book. Can someone take a clear picture of the box. I'm curious what names are used in the American release.

    The rest look great. I was not expecting to see a Gnaw figure this morning. Yay!

    Overall what a nice surprise. Along with the CW trailer. It's like a mini-xmas. :)

    That Megatron is looking better than the CW version. Number one figure I want out of all of these. These headmasters are slowly growing on me.

    Nope, a retool of one of his previous forms. He has a canopy where a Headmaster can sit, but he transforms nothing like Wheelie.

    Goddamn that Voyager Megatron is sexy! In fact, I think the jet mode looks better than his trademark tank mode. It also makes for an obvious Blitzwing retool. Personally, I still like Generations Blitzwing, so I'd rather see a Flywheels retool from this.

    Hooray for new heads on Liokaiser! Makes me wonder why Hasbro didn't do this for Computron. Does anyone have comfirmation of the combiner names yet? I still want to know if the additional Legends class figure is Glit. Now to wait and see what Takara does with this....

    Gnaw is cute. It's about damn time we have a new Sharkticon toy and this could make for an inexpensive army builder. Gimme!

    That Megatron looks great, can't wait to get him. I wonder if his Titan Master was kinda named after that unreleased triple changer everyone calls Dropshot.

    I'm probably really late in noticing this, but Brainstorm is a remold of Blurr? Never noticed it before.

    Getting a better look at some of them, I'm amused by Hellbat now being "Fellbat" and Killbison now being "Ironbison".

    Still an awesome set, regardless. :)  I love how their still called "Destrons".

    Yeah, it's a bit of a shame, but it's been noticed.

    It seems a bit of news here that was overlooked is the deluxe stand-alone release of Brainstorm with a different deco from the Titan Force set. I wonder if this will drop sales on that set, considering many wanted it only to get a Brainstorm.

    I'd totally buy a single release of that Deathsaurus as a Nemesis Sky Lynx.

    Disappointed that Sawback's lion head isn't the actual headmaster. I saw the arms in the mane and got so excited, then I glanced at the package art...

    Dunno if I should get Crashbash or just wait for Overkill. Don't need two, but they both look good.

    Megatron looks great, and I'll probably just get it as Megatron, the other Blitzwing is passable, IMO.
    Sawback is real cool, but Overkill is meh. Third use of the vehicle, and although it might be the version I get, still not too enthused about seeing the thing again.
    Gnaw and Bee are amazing, good job on HasTak's part. I hope Gnaw can have a TitanMaster ride in his mouth.
    Brainstorm is cool, and the Blurr mold is fantastic so consider me hyped.

    Heh, I love the new names for the Brestforce. Having the Destron name as the team name is also clever. While I'm not a huge fan of 'Dezarus' the rest of Liokaiser looks good, especially combined. While Takara will probably do better I'm still pumped to get this guy.
    Definitely my favourite CW combiner.

    Then again, I'm probably a bit biased.

    Just a little.

    Edit: oh Megatron and Gnaw are cool too i guess

    Odd choices for these names, but whatever. They still look cool and I'll call 'em what I want.
