    So far I'm really not feeling this Megatron. Still very open to being impressed (as the majority of this line has done). Definitely prefer the old voyager's plastic hood (after custom paint) to the cloth. I would have thought I would have prefered cloth, but that looks ridiculous.

    They may yet win me over though.

    Wow. Just wow. Good stuff all around. The only three I don't want are Junker Bee, WWII Bee, and "Crankcase"

    The rest are bought on sight.

    That collapsing wheel well is worth 2 parts. I’m not an engineering expert, but I’m sure two moving parts aren’t as cheap to make as one static part.

    For all their improvements over SS-05 they gotta compromise something to keep the toy from going overbudget, like it or not.

    Personally I’m not bothered by that, I’m just glad his chest looks great and his colours are as vibrant and lively as they should be. This is the best Voyager Prime we’ll get in years, even better than BB and SS-05, assuming he carries SS-05’s articulation over and fixes his lousy backpack.

    Awh. Well. Eheheh. Jetfire looks good? And the constructicons! Very interesting! But I think I’ll stick to my ROTF Megatron

    Sadly SS32 isn’t gonna be any bigger than SS05. I did a size comparison with Brawl, who I know is barely shorter than SS05, and found that SS32 isn’t much taller either.

    Thanks to this finding I now have second thoughts about selling my Evasion, his arms are loose as hell (he can’t even hold his cannon anymore) but he’s still good to play with. He’d be cool with SS Ironhide but then he’d be too big for a hypothetical SS Sentinel. If I get SS-32 he’d look cool with Sentinel but not with Ironhide. Gawd :mad:

    I'm not as impressed by the new SS Optimus Prime. I am just hoping it is really mistransformed, but right now it looks like a side grade and not an upgrade.

    Yeah I figured the legs were mistransformed before, and we can see this time around he has a more chicken leg stance.

    and you can see here he has the same squat and break at the knees.

    All the new SS stuff looks great!
    DOTM Megatron is a beast. Shame the tarp is shit but I'm sure some 3rd party will make something better to cover his ugly mug.
    Rampage is also looking pretty sweet with lots of little paint details. Hope the final version will keep them.
    Pretty psyched to see the rest of the Constructicons and the final (non-prototype) Devastator.

    Many of you know my opinions about Studio Series but I have to say seeing that display of all the '07 bots and cons was really cool.

    I was thinking last night about how I'm actually more nostalgic for DOTM but gosh, I'm really impressed by that lineup.


    Edit: I'm sure others have mentioned it too but the way they did Jetfire's hands is unfortunate.

    Megatron looks so much better here. Was likely going to buy before, but definitely will now.

    It does look awkward in bot mode. But, I'm guessing they did that so it would fit properly in truck mode as well.

    I\'m actually really liking Megatron...sure the cloth tarp and the block lower legs aren\'t amazing but personally I find more good about it than negative.

    This is exactly my list except Mackatron is in the definitely buy category and I have no interest in a potential Onslaught.

    I was hoping to see more on Masterpiece Hound and the possible Masterpiece Blaster at this show. Prime looks cool, but I better get saving now. Lol I’m not too much into studio series, but wow do those figures look great. I am happy for those that have waited a long time for these versions of the movie characters.

    am I missing something? I thought the bee two pack was numbered 24-25 based off these pics bonecrusher and prime are 24 and 25
