    Really like the scorponok beast mode, but IMO the bot mode leaves something to be desired... Anyone know when these new deluxe figures are going to hit shelves?

    Wow. I honestly didn't think they'd do a new Warrior Class Windblade or, if they did, that it would be just a repaint. This one might not be perfect, but I'll definitely get it.

    I want Windblade, Scorponok, the Bumblebee/Grimlock and that winged Optimus Prime. Windblade in particular looks much better than her Generations toy and I would like to see it with a retooled head for Classics, to be honest.

    This is how Optimus Prime should've been release in the RID line in the first place. The Scorpionk toy looks very good. What's the robot mode looking like?

    Glad to see the Voyager sized Grimlock being released here, but as a 2 pack with Bumblebee, not sure I like that (depending on price). Windblade, Scorponok, Legends Lobster con' (sorry, forgot his name!), and maybe Prime will be buys.

    Windblade's too red for me. Scorponok looks good, but I'll only buy him if I like him in the show. The Bumblebee/Grimlock set isn't bad, but I don't want to pay Platinum Edition money for a bigger and better Grimlock if all I'm getting is a shiny Bumblebee. I like Bumblebee, but I don't like paying Platinum Edition price for a slightly shinier one. The Power Surge Optimus, while I doubt I'll care for it show-wise, neither toy really looks bad. I may just get the bigger one, though the gappy alt mode turns me away in favor of the Warrior Class just a little...

    I was thinking about not getting Power Surge Optimus (or his Adventure equivalent), since I got both the larger Takara articulated ones, but it looks different enough to be repurposed as another character (Thunderclash, perhaps). The Warrior Windblade and Scorponok could be better, but I may get the Takara decos. I wonder if Windblade could be remolded as Filch.

    I'm a bit annoyed that the Generations based RID Grimlock is part of a Platinum set - and another Bumblebee? - but I'll decide later if it's worth getting, depending on the price. The Takara version I'd preordered from HLJ was 'out of stock' the moment it came out.

    How tall is that Surge Optimus? Is it as tall as TAV-21 or TAV-33?

    I'm getting a very Tarn-esque vibe from Prime's mask.

    Hasbro : "Hey kids, good news: if you want that Voyager Grimlock you don't have to import him from Japan."
    Kids: "Yeaaah"
    Hasbro : "Yes, and even better: remember that Warrior Bumblebee you allready bought ? Well now you'll have two !"
    Kids: : :throw

    Stupid Bees. Hasbro's always pushing them. Poor Prime gets half-baked retools and disappointing upgrades while Bumblebee gets ten repaints of the same toy.

    Boy, G.I. Joe is screwed. We should be lucky that TF's are still thriving. We got a lot of neat reveals at the toy fair while G.I.Joe got nothing. Sad. I like G.I.Joe a lot...in fact I started collecting them until a certain super robot lifeform burst onto the scene in 1984...

    I wonder what happened? The Joe line was just as big as TF's were...

    The big Optimus seems like it doesn't know who it's trying to be. That face looks like Tarn (or my fan design for Liege Maximo) and the eagle chest looks like it's trying to be Deszaras. I do feel the figure can't alt mode whatsoever. I had my complaints about the deluxe but the truck mode was decent; the legends/legion actually looks REALLY good in both modes. TakaraTomy's giant optimus looks dead on. Its too bad Hasbro won't just release those.
