    Some pics of the previous Authentics Alpha, Bravo and Titan Changers for comparison, for anyone interested...
    (I'm still missing Wheeljack from last year, as we don't get the Alpha class in Australia, so I still have to find an affordable one to import)

    If Starscream is now coming out with an Alpha class toy, it will mean that all five Titan Changers will finally have a toy in all three size classes.

    Instructions on the box and they still can't transform him correctly.

    Safe to say it's not lack of instructions.
    The photographers are just incompetent.

    Hmm...not bad. Wish the vertical stabilizers were a tad taller, but definitely not a dealbreaker. Won't go out of my way to get him, but if I ever see in store, I'll grab.

    I’m no toy engineer, but considering the relative ease of transformation, is it that hard to make the nose/cockpit kibble hinge downward? Faux cockpits are a deal breaker when it comes to Seekers.

    Not that they don't want to, it's just that they couldn't give a shit. These things are meant for the dollar store, thus why not make them as basic as you can?

    I mean...the Core Seeker mold has a faux cockpit, and it isn't the worst thing. I actually like that one. But this, like all "Authentics" releases, looks cheap even at a distance

    I know these are cheap toys but...why in the hell is there absolutely no color from his chest to his feet? It looks like he's wearing overalls.

    I don\'t think people understand price point and labour. 
    this are for kid at much lower price point.
    More details= more time = more money.

    Wish more people understood the triangle, quality, cost and time. Because you can only have 2 out of 3

    On the positive, I think this line is great to practice customizing for beginners.
