    They might end up doing another one of those weapon packs, not ideal but possible.

    Maybe a two pack of junkions with the weapons included

    I’d much rather have a sword instead of Wheelie.

    Nice stuff and Grimlock looks huge... but who takes a 240p photo in 2020???
    Then again, pretty sure this is the reveal Hasbro will share on friday, so I can wait.

    Except this is all cartoon/animated movie hommage, and Grimlock never used a sword in the toon. Only Snarl had one. Grimlock had a gun only but most of the time the animators forgot even that and he was just shooting lasers from his arms like a Gobot. :D

    This has put a smile on my face today! Grimlock looks huge and beautiful just as he should be!

    Grindor was a slightly different model of helicopter right? I don't remember if he was meant to be bigger or smaller than blackout? And he's more grey in tone I think?

    Generations selects Ricochet/Stepper incoming! 

    I\'m not sure if these are going to mesh well with Siege/Earthrise/Kingdom aesthetically but it\'s great to have all the characters made in some form without intrusive gimmicks.  

    This is going to be like my fourth Grimlock if I decide to get him. 

    Scourge seems he would go well with Cyclonus so definitely on my radar

    I like to be excited about something. If I'm waiting for reveals on Friday then I want to get it on Friday. Not blasted and spoiled on the Front Page on Wednesday.

    They were not but are accurate enough to mingle with. If they wanted to rerelease springer with no weathering not unlike studio series did with some last knight figures I wouldn’t complain.

    He never used his sword in the cartoon?

    *thinks*

    It’s the comics I’m thinking of. They were and still are my preferred fiction..

    Hasbro did pretty much the same thing with Generations and Hunt for the Decepticons/Reveal the Shield lines where overflow from Generations was released under the "movie" line.

    Looking at this potato image, I'm most impressed by Blurr... the thing looks amazing.

    I was soo looking forward to a cool new wheelie... here he looks, I dunno, like he was an after thought? Hopefully it's just the image and he is better than the TR version.

    I wanna look at proper images or hopefully an official reveal of Jazz and Grimlock before making a comment.

    Also, looking at that Grimlock - it would be a travesty if we didn't get all the Dinobots done in this style... especially Sludge with googly eyes!!

    From what I can see, most look pretty good, but I can already tell I might just have a love/hate relationship with that Grimlock. I'm sure better photos will help, but right now I'm not feeling those oddly pronounced feet and that fricking 'cartoon accurate' nasty bright yellow.

    The lack of swords annoyed me, but Chris McFeely pointed out on Twitter that in the cartoon? Grimlock never had it.

    I'm hoping that the renewed interest in Generations scale from collectors will draw 3Ps back to it as well.

    It's Hasbro's own fault. Pulsecon (or even NYCC) were the perfect opportunity to reveal these before any leaks. Chances were super high that the longer they waited the more likely leaks would be. It's hilarious that it's two days prior though.

    Seeing that Grimlock, I wonder now if they'll do an exclusive repaint with a gold chrome chest.

    Wonder how many people are suddenly questioning why they collect the MP line right about now. Obviously these won't have the same level of finesse but from the distance that, for example, I'd be looking at these from my desk to my shelves I don't think I'd notice much difference.

    Well played Hasbro!
