    As always Ravage is horrible. Why cant Hasbro ever get him right ? Also its sad that the cassettes are being lumped in as micromasters. That means its even less likely you will ever see the full teams.

    Love that we finally have a Ravage who can sit! Good boy! Here is some catnip. :p 
    And also finally, Cybertronian visor-eyed Laserbeaky. :)

    Here's when the preorders say:
    From memory the original source of these pictures, the TFND FB group, is based in Taiwan. They tend to get releases a little early and out in Taiwan around now ties in nicely with the dates above.

    I\'m digging Laserbeak\'s cloacal thruster. Is it for propulsion, or for befouling Autobot windshields?

    Does anyone know if these are compatible with MP Soundwave? I doubt it.

    Probably not. They are to small. I don’t have these figures but they already look smaller than the G1 cassettecon size.

    I don't really care for how Laserbeak is half Cybertronian half Earth mode but whatever. He needs better guns too. Ravage looks very solid though. Paint goes a long way. The Unverse version totally sucked for that reason alone.

    I hope we see them do something interesting here. Like Slugfest and Overkill.

    I don't mind that Ravage is now some kind of weird puppy-bear, and Laserbeak's wings and face-visor are awesome so I'm glad I got them pre-ordered.

    To be honest, though, the Rescue Patrol is what I've been waiting for. After Hubcap, the Micromasters (since some of them were still hanging around on clearance or at places that didn't update their toys that often) were among my earliest Transformers and I remember particularly loving the Rescue Patrol. I'm heartbroken we're not getting a new Fixit, but Stakeout and Red Hot look perfect and I can't wait to have new versions with the one thing I always wish they had as kids: moving legs.

    What?

    Eh. I didn't like the most of the Armada mini-cons as guns either. I like guns to look like guns. I know. I'm crazy.

    Like I said be for Ravage looks like a fluffy dog with a the fir shaved off it's head and legs.

    Also why does Laserbeak have three buttholes?

    Red Hot and Stakeout look pretty great.

    Laserbeak and Ravage aren’t moving the needle at all for me. Ravage is too weirdly bulky in the haunches and I know that head on Laserbeak is based on MTMTE but that doesn’t make it less stupid.
