    So Megatron wears Spinister’s torn-apart corpse now?

    That'd be cooler, reminds me of Tom Scioli's Megatron wearing Grimlock's dino head, tail and Bee's decapitated head around his neck.

    What's "self-destructing" about new product on shelves? Kids aren't as obsessively online as this fandom so it doesn't really matter if it's "announced" as long as kids are seeing it in the toy aisle.

    Back when I was a kid, half the time I didn't know what new BW stuff was out until I was at K-Mart and saw it on the shelf. I remember my excitement when Tripredacus and Magnaboss appeared.

    If they put a Deluxe Cyberverse Bumblebee in this line with a much better paint job, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat!

    I remember seeing the CGI commercial of Tripredacus and Magnaboss and was excited to seeing them in the show. Because the CGI used in the commercial had to be lifted straight from the show, right?

    Just about to comment on that! I don't understand this line at all. Why is Megatron part of it?

    The idea is a line that celebrates the history of Bumblebee, but to make sure it's not just a bunch of his toys on the shelf they're tying in the villains he's dealt with. That way kids have bad guys for Bee to fight.

    So the Cybverse figure has a match. They're selling Shatter, and I presume Dropkick will find his way in. Daniel shows up in one of the toys. Etc.

    I could also see a few RiD 2015 figures getting added. Steeljaw or Megatronus for example. Perhaps they'd even reissue Ultra Bee and Galvatronus sets.

    I think the end game is going to be a few brand new molds if this line does well enough. Using this to push through another release of Netflix Bee and likely a Saucer Bee from MtMtE are likely goals. Similar to how Studio Series got more ambitious as it went.

    They're not allowed to reissue those as I would actually like that.

    I'm not sure which part of that is the sarcasm but if you actually want one they're still on Amazon and will bounce in and out of MSRP. I think back during Black Friday/Cyber Monday Amazon was only charging like $20 for Ultra Bee.

    (Ultra Bee is also something I would really like to see adapted in to Generations. Similar to how Studio eventually got brave enough to right the wrong from RotF and give us a fully realized movie Devastator.)

    So your basically saying that Hasbro has intentionally created an entire line aimed directly at the ignorance of children...and is obviously praying on kids inability to tell the difference between a new quality mold, and old lazy repackaged garbage...a way for kids to get tricked into asking adults to buy them old dusty shelfwormers & Hasbro rejects???!!! Hmmmm??? Sounds like typical Hasbro to me. :lol

    It\'s so bizarre to see a toy that has a trash collection truck combine with Bumblebee to form Toxitron bright green with Optimus primes head and all.

    Honestly I don't know why they didn't bother digging out the old Transformers universe strategy if they didn't have anything to fill stores with. But what ever I don't have to buy it and I've got loads of other choices.

    I'm sorta baffled with the spark armor bumblebee toy redeco, you'd think they'd redeco bee in "recon colors" or something, but they simply redecoed the spark armor.

    This is the year's Target-exclusive line, everyone!

    Because Hasbro knows this Bumblebee line is complete garbage, so they pair Bumblebee with a garbage truck! It's to save kids the trouble of tossing him in the garbage!:lol

    Is reissuing a toy that clogged shelves for months and got clearanced for $5 a good idea?
    $25 has always been an insane price for these.

    Huh, I'll have to keep an eye out, Menasor is honestly the one I really want to be reissued.
