    I just saw your tweet, these all look so good. I also picked a good day to take a late lunch, I guess.

    Thoughts on Astrotrain having the same sort of lump in the middle of his shuttle mode as the G1 toy?

    Not too bad, but I'll stick with TR Astrotrain. Apeface is a maybe, I'll have to see if he uses the TR engineering. That other one Pointblank(?) I don't care about him at all.

    Yay!!! At first, quick, glance they all look awesome. Can’t wait to get home and take a proper look when not on the phone.

    Crosshairs from Ironhide is interesting, and has implications for how they’ll do redecos/remoulds going forward.

    I hope Astrotrain is a "Leader" class toy in the same way Shockwave was, so he's still Voyager scale in robot mode to match my Legends Blitzwing.

    They all look sweet. :)  Makes me glad I didn't pick up TR Astrotrain. Apeface looks equally awesome. It makes me want to see an Optimus Primal retool out of him. Crosshairs being a Siege Ironhide reuse isn't a bad fit actually. If I don't get Siege Ironhide then this is the next best thing. Spinister looks cool too.

    Apeface looks so good! He is definitely a must have for me. Spinister probably is too.

    I actually liked the TR Astrotrain so I'll wait to decide on that, but new one doesn't look too bad.

    Yes!!!!!! So I'm guessing these are WFC-S48-51.

    Well if Spinister is happening, that means there is a chance Wheeljack will too.

    P.S. 30 seconds or so before McFeely New Siege Figure Reveals

    Astrotrain and Spinister will be on the preorder list. Don't care for the other two though.

    Oh man! Oh man! Oh man! They look great.
    Well, everybody but Astrotrain. But it's cool he has his earth modes.
    Apeface looks so beautiful.
    Spinister looks amazing.
    And Crosshairs makes that mold look good :dj 
    although the TR Kup mold would have fitted him better.
    I can't wait for these guys. Pity Apeface isn't a leader so he would be old voyager class.
    But Spinister gives me hope they'll do Needlenose justice when they do him.

    Yes! I'm getting all of these. Going to need a Snapdragon to go with that Apeface, god these are cool as hell. I was worried that Mirage and Impactor were a sign of what's to come, good to know that everything else looks amazing. Phew!
